Hi there, Ms. Property Manager! I you know have lots of
choices when it comes to renting your residential units, and I want to make
your decision an easy one! I’ve closed on hundreds of transactions all over
Chicagoland over the years, and most of my landlord and property management
clients contact me repeatedly to represent them on lots of units they need
filled with quality tenants.
Here’s what you can expect from me:
A full service rental listing agreement that
allows you to find your own tenants without owing me a commission. I personally don’t feel it’s fair to tie my
landlord clients to paying if the guy from 2B has a cousin who wants to move
into 3A, and you want to do your own credit checks and lease signing.
For a small fee, I can do just the paperwork for
you (ministerial acts) if you do not wish to sign a listing agreement and have
me represent you. I can also do lease renewals by request.
“Full service” from me includes the following:
An in-depth discussion on what your particular
tenant criteria and rental terms are within the scope of Fair Housing laws.
A rental listing agreement including the date of
when you would like me to begin and when you would like the agreement to end,
as well as what features and amenities your unit offers.
I will expect instructions on accessing the unit
at this time, which may include keys and tenant contact information.
In the event the unit is currently occupied, I
will always give the tenant proper notice of any showings that will occur as
well as an initial discussion in order to set expectations.
Detailed measurements and photos taken of your
listed unit (please view my listings page for examples).
Your listing appearing on
various websites plus mine, which is updated very regularly.
Pre-qualification screening (please see this
page to see what I ask every prospective tenant).
Showings scheduled for soonest opportunity and providing
reminders to the prospective tenants to help ensure they remember their
appointments and arrive on time.
Every listed unit will be shown by a licensed
If your unit is occupied or is in the middle of
rehabbing, I will attend every showing during that time, even if a prospective
tenant has a real estate agent representing them.
Nationwide credit and background check conducted
as part of the application process for every prospective tenant 18 and over who
would be living in the unit.
If a cosigner is provided, that person will also
go through the same process.
All application packages presented to you to
review in a timely manner. You make the decisions on acceptance or denial.
Complete application packages include
applications for all persons 18 and over, photo IDs and proofs of income within
the last month.
A fully compliant, executed lease, which will
include the following:
Chicago Residential Tenant Landlord Ordinance
Pamphlets and disclosures as applicable
Attachments as applicable, such as riders,
rules, regulations and bylaws
Pet documentation (if applicable)
Tenant contact information sheet
Tenant utility page (for turning on utilities in
Photos of checks received and receipts issued
Delivery of executed lease and cashier’s checks
or money orders collected at lease signing.
Because my office uses electronic document
signing, you do not need to be present to sign your portion of the lease.
In addition to everything listed above, we can discuss
additional services you feel is needed in order to successfully rent your unit.
Signage can be utilized for additional exposure, for example, provided the
local ordinance permits it.
If this all sounds good to you, let’s schedule an appointment
to visit your listing! Please email, text or call me!
