This building is in a great location, it's steps from the loop but also very close to three grocery stores, AMC, and shopping. The doorman staff is always very friendly, and they tend to do fun things once a month for all the residents. The only downside is that it sometimes smells inside the apartment b/c we're so close to the trash chute, no washer and dryer in our apartments, and the electric bill is fairly high because of the floor to cieling windows. Overall I would say I have lived in several high rise apartments and this has been the best! The front office is always quick to resolve problems and help.
I have used other apartment finding services before such as Apartment Guys and the Apartment People (they are awful, do not use them.), and the Apartment Finders were by far the best. They actually listened to what I wanted and did not try to push me out of my price range or in to another area I did not want to live in. The agent even offered to pick me up on my lunch break to go look at places because my schedule is so hectic. In the end, I found an apartment on Craigslist, but I would definitely use them again, as they are also a great resource.
Holy River North knowledge. I was specifically looking in River North and found Jon Perlman through a Google search. He found me the perfect condo extremely fast, negotiated the price down, and helped me closed on it in record time. Everyone says buying a home is stressful, well, it sure helps when you never second guess the property your buying. The most amazing thing is, he predicted a double digit rise in the price of the condos in my building, and it happen over the summer. Jon knows value. I'll call ya crazy if you use anyone else.
