    Aaron Galvin Managing Broker/Owner
  • I hired Aaron Galvin to handle the entire lease-up for a new luxury loft rental building we in the South Loop. I knew we needed a great resource to help with the leasing aspect of this property, and we got a true expert in Aaron. From day one, he exuded excitement and passion for our property. You could really tell he loves what he does.

    When we started leasing, Aaron insisted on doing everything the right way. He advised us on pricing and how to create a leasing path during pre-construction. He explained that we needed to create an environment where future residents could see their home instead of a construction site. When leasing began, we were blown away by the number of showings, leases and results. His organization and reporting was excellent and it allowed me to focus on getting the building completed.

    Aaron promised we would have all 59 units leased in 60 days and he far exceeded those expectations. Almost the entire building was pre-leased before anyone moved in and the process was seamless. I will absolutely use Aaron and Luxury Living Chicago in the future and highly recommend him to any developer looking for a true professional to help with leasing-up a multifamily building.

  • I recently was in search for a modern place for myself and my business, We Cre8 Design. I reached out to Luxury Living and Amy found me the EXACT place I was searching for. They really know what they are doing and I couldn’t be more pleased! I was also working with Elisa Kaufmann who was an absolute joy to work with one on one. Fantastic job!

  • My company is a development firm based in the West Loop. We are currently building condo quality rental properties in downtown Chicago and knew we needed a broker to lease these units. Aaron and Luxury Living Chicago have been exceptional as our leasing partner. From the time we met, Aaron provided a unique and well communicated market knowledge and perspective. He helped in setting the right prices and pushed us to create a new rental threshold in the West Loop. Aaron and his team have not only leased all of our units but PRE-LEASED almost 100% of all apartments. The additional revenue has been a welcome surprise. As we have gotten to know Aaron and his team, he has become an integral member of our development process, providing feedback on floor plans, unit mix and the latest finishes. His sense of the Chicago luxury rental market is without compare. He is a true professional. We know we found a tremendous asset in Aaron and Luxury Living and we look forward to years of a successful relationship.

  • I had a great experience with Darrell Scott at Luxury Living Chicago. I gave him a brief synopsis of my goals, what types of places I was looking for, projected move in dates, etc. He was active in communication and came up with some great spots for me to look at. Shortly thereafter we looked at the top spots I chose from the list he gave me. Throughout the process I knew Darrell had my best interest. I would ask general questions to the building management, but Darrell often would ask more specific questions that I wouldn’t have thought of. That right there shows me a lot about his character and work ethic. It wasn’t about just putting me in an apartment, it was making sure we were getting into the best case scenario. I would recommend Darrell and his services to friends and family in a heartbeat.

  • Tristen was our broker, and he was great. After I signed up on the website, he called me within 30 minutes to introduce himself and schedule a time for us to talk. I told him what we were looking for, and he put together a great list of places to see. Tristen was incredibly responsive to our preferences based on our first two showings, and changed our day around (multiple times) to get us into the places that best met our needs. He was also really great at balancing what was important to me with what was important to my boyfriend. After we found the perfect place, he came back with us a second time to review different layouts, and he stayed with us while we did the application on-site. The best apartment-hunting experience of my life, and some of the best service I have ever experienced. It is actually as good as it sounds.

  • I am actually in the business of buying large apartment deals for pension funds, but hadn’t lived or rented one for 30 years. I was selling my 3-bedroom condo in Evanston and wanted a similar sized place in Chicago. It is very hard to find a large 3-bedroom and I ended up with a beautiful 3 bedroom plus den bigger than my condo overlooking the river. Very professional team throughout.

  • This is how business should be done. I had exactly one day to find an apartment. Tamara organized my day efficiently. She was prompt, friendly, professional and efficient. In fact, after getting to know me and my likes/dislikes throughout the day, she added one more place to her list. It turns out that it was the one I decided on! Thanks so much for your help, Tamara. I will definitely recommend your company.

  • I worked with Elise Kaufmann and she was AMAZING! She was beyond helpful and extremely knowledgeable. She showed me six different apartments on three different days. She was so patient and NEVER pushy, which I appreciated it, I never felt rushed or pressured to decide. She picked me up and drove me to all the different locations and for each place we looked at she showed me on a map where it was in relation to public transit, grocery store, dry cleaner etc., which were things I had told her were important to me. Every apartment we went to was great and had everything I asked her for upfront and she stayed exactly in my budget. I felt like she really cared about my happiness and was invested in me and my new place. She was also very accommodating. The first day we went out I had to cut it short and she rearranged everything so I could see the others on a different day. Then after about a week I decided I wanted a bit of a different location and she came up with more apartments to show me. I ended up finding an apartment I really LOVE and cannot wait to move into! Elise was the best, I loved working with her and Luxury Living, they took the hassle out of finding an apartment and made everything so easy!

  • Working with Axel Cohen of Luxury Living was a smooth and stress free process from start to finish. Being first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and Axel was always a phone call or text away with great advice. We would highly recommend Axel and the Luxury Living team!

  • My experience with Luxury Living Chicago was efficient and excellent. Axel was extremely helpful and organized throughout the day that I was available for viewings. His choices were undoubtedly great places and I would not have been able to find a place this nice myself.

  • A sudden relocation to Chicago prompted me to work with the best, and my experience with the Luxury Living Chicago “family” could not have been better! My communication began with Amy so strongly and effectively, where she assessed my requirements and desires, and then continued to stay in touch throughout the process of finding my ideal apartment. I was then lucky enough to be in the company of Julie. She was amazing from the moment she picked me up, from maneuvering the snow covered streets, to providing insight on the neighborhoods and properties above and beyond my expectations, and answering any questions I had. Julie and Andrew were so thoughtful enough to map a route to my new workplace and recommend various eateries and sights around my new home city. I would recommend Luxury Living Chicago to anyone interested in working with a smart, genuine and knowledgeable team!

  • Luxury Living Chicago has a 5 star rating for a reason! I am moving to Chicago from out of town and stumbled across Luxury Living Chicago after a daunting search to try to figure out where I should live. Jill Casey worked with me and made the process extraordinarily easy! She spent time talking with me on the phone to get a clear idea for what I was looking for in an apartment, and then followed up to confirm we had places to see the day I was in town to look! She was nothing short of friendly, professional, personable, and guided me through the process, answering any questions I had. She spent time reviewing the apartments we’d visited and helped walk me through the elimination to get to the apartment that I will be calling home! It was a great help considering it came down to two places. I am pleased knowing I got a great deal and was cared for throughout the whole process! Thank you, Jill! You made this so easy!

  • My husband and I recently rented pied-a-tierre in Old Town. Sam Kahn was our realtor and he was absolutely amazing! He was very responsive, informative, professional and kind. Sam went above and beyond during our search and after. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to rent or buy in the city.

  • Many companies use the word “luxury” as a way to drive up business, even though they do not embody what the word symbolizes. It’s safe to say, this company does. I called in one morning, and I was confirmed by that afternoon ready to see properties. Darrell was my property manager, and he was great. I can be very particular at times, and Darrell showed me all the properties I needed to see. I started at 10:30 that morning, and by the 2nd property, I was signing a lease to an awesome loft. Quick. Easy. No fuss. If you’re hesitating about using these guys — don’t. There’s a reason why they’re getting all these great reviews. Thanks again, Luxury Living!

  • Working with Luxury Living to find our new home in Chicago was the best experience we could ask for. It was a fun stress free adventure and getting to know Tamara Hirsch was real honor. She helped us find the right apartment for us even thought it took us quite a little since me and my husband had high requirements and not easy to find amenities but she did it! Thanks luxury living Chicago!

  • Darrell was great to work with from beginning to end. I was new to Chicago and he gave me a thorough description of several neighborhoods and, after taking time to understand my general lifestyle preferences, offered thoughtful suggestions on which ones might best suit my needs. He staged a tour of multiple neighborhoods and types of space, and went the extra mile on a Saturday evening to ensure I was able to secure my top choice apartments before other interested parties did so. I couldn’t be happier with his attention to customer service, responsiveness and knowledge of the market, and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the Chicago market.

  • Was set up with Darrell Scott of Luxury Living and couldn’t have been happier with the service. He was professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. My fiance and I knew nothing about Chicago beforehand, but he cleared his schedule, drove us around for an entire day and showed us over 10 apartments that were exactly what we were looking for. He also kept our best interests in mind and was honest in his opinions. There is no one else that I would recommend more than Darrell.

  • Tristen is absolutely fantastic to work with. He exceeded all of my expectations and made sure that I was able to find an apartment that met my criteria and more. He makes everything fun and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a luxury apartment in Chicago.

  • I worked with Darrell in my apartment search. He was so fantastic, I can’t say enough good things about him. First of all, he knew my tastes based on where I was currently living, and tailored all showings to that type of quality and design. I didn’t want to live in a high-rise again initially. The first building Darrell showed me was a high-rise, in which I move into at the end of September. He knew me better than I knew myself, which I very much appreciated. Beyond this, he has a great knowledge of the city and architecture. He does not just know how to find properties, but understands the value of architecture and design.
