About Us

In 1992 Chicago Apartments And Condos opens a office on the North Side of Chicago. Our office was originally at 3534 N Broadway in East Lake View for 20 years. Then and until this year we were at the corner of Buckingham Place and Clark in Lake View.

In 2017 we started taking all our pictures with a DSLR camera and a wide angle lens made for real estate photography. We use external flashes to improve lighting, color depth and to highlight important room details. In order to get the best pictures and achieve good image sharpness, we also use a tripod. We take pictures in a RAW file format and process them with Adobe LightroomŪ. The RAW format lets us produce higher quality photos that would not be possible in the JPEG format. Great photos will make someone stop and look at a property longer than one that is blurry, crocked or dark.

In 2018 we started taking narrated HD Videos that we host on YouTube, currently we have over three hundred and sixty videos on our YouTube channel. Using video has been shown to attract more people to click on and then look at real estate. Weekly someone comments on how the video on the web made them want to see the place in person. Using video in showcasing properties is a proven useful tool that sets up apart from our competition.

In 2019 we started using Brochure Butler to make our online property brochures easy to find and view from our property signs. Our online brochures feature videos, pictures, maps and walk scores to help the renter looking for a new place to live decide if they want to see the property in person.

In 2020 Chicago Apartments and Condos joined Coldwell BankerŪ Realty and became Chicago Apartment and Condo Leasing Team at Coldwell BankerŪ Realty. At over 106 years old Coldwell BankerŪ is one of the strongest and most trusted real estate brands in Chicago and the world.  Our team is excited to be a part of Coldwell BankerŪ Realty to help make our client and customer services stronger from their leadership and innovation.
