October has come and gone and it’s about that time of year when we begin to focus on Thanksgiving dinner, winter sports teams in Chicago, and the rapidly approaching holiday season that always seems to creep up on us out of nowhere. But before we get to what many consider the most wonderful time of the year, we thought we'd take a minute to share with our clients what a great month we’ve had here at Chicago’s Property Shop.
While the red hot rental market in Chicago takes our expert team of agents all over the downtown area, we’ve been working hard to focus our attention on neighborhoods like Streeterville, River North, the South Loop, New Eastside, and of course our home base right here in the West Loop. Like many of you, we’ve been thrilled with how much the market has picked up over 2013 and as this year is starting to come to a close, we’re still working tirelessly to find out clients the best possible housing options currently on the market, despite all the challenges we face every single day.
If you’ve kept up with real estate news around Chicago lately, you’ve probably heard about how quickly rentals at 500 N. Lake Shore Drive are being filled. As one of downtown’s hottest luxury buildings, this is also a testament to how lively the rental market has been over the last several months and continues to be into the traditional winter slow down. Many who have viewed the building in person but took just a bit too much time pondering over a decision have missed out on what’s available over at 500 LSD, and even as the cold season sets in, this trend continues to happen each and every day.
But with our experience and second-to-none knowledge of the building, however, we know how to make deals happen. In October alone, two of our very own agents, Anne Mall and Joe Connolly, were the top producers at 500 N. Lake Shore Drive, totalling a whopping 6 leases signed and hopefully many more to follow as we turn the calendar to November.
So if you’re one of those unfortunate Chicagoans who face the dreaded task of moving in the dead of winter, consider allowing us to help guide you through the fast-paced rental market in downtown Chicago. Whether it’s a swank condo for rent in one of downtown’s best locations or a simple apartment rental that’s a bit more affordable, who better to help you out than some of the top producers in one of Chicago’s most prestigious new addresses?
