My insights + reviews

  • Aaron Galvin is, without a doubt, the most capable real estate professional in Chicago. He was initially my real estate agent when I was searching for rental properties, and truly listened to my objectives in purchasing a property. He then turned into my rental listing agent and property manager (he is still my real estate agent as well), and I have not had a second of concern since I agreed to have him lease and manage my property (now properties) – every one of the tenants he has found has been incredibly high-quality, and he plans ahead to ensure there is no vacancy (the longest vacancy I have had in the last 5 years was a week. Aaron truly understands what it means to be a real estate professional, and provides the highest level of customer service to his clients. I now have 3 investment properties (soon to be 4), and all of them are handled by Luxury Living. I could have 500 properties, and I can honestly say I would still be inclined to utilize Aaron and his team; they’re that good! Aaron has created a company which is unique in approach; they are professional, driven and get the results that are best for their clients. If you’ve ever looked at other real estate agents or property managers and wondered if they are worth the cost, in my opinion, Aaron’s services are a bargain!

    The Best Apartment Amenities for Summer: Outdoor Spaces

  • I have been working with Aaron since 2006. He helped me to find the best tenants and I can’t express enough how happy I was with the level of service, easiness of the process and his attention to the details. He definitely knows the market and pricing, so his recommendations on how to price and and what we should expect were right on. He always calls me back and was so helpful with any questions or concerns. I loved working with him and he is my number one choice when it comes to finding the tenants and I always refer my friends to him. Outstanding service!
