How to Get Into Real Estate

Working in real estate, especially in a city like Chicago, is a fast-paced and dynamic experience. An exciting way to get into real estate is to start out by working with renters. In markets like ours, with thousands of brand-new luxury apartments entering the market, there are tons of renters searching for a new home and likely feeling overwhelmed by the options. Unlike New York City or Boston, working with a broker or leasing agent in Chicago is a complimentary service to the renter. Chicago brokers are only paid a commission when the client rents an apartment that they showed and that commission is paid out by the property management company or landlord. We can also answer all of your questions about how Chicago apartment finders get paid. Providing guidance to renters and educating them about the Chicago market provides the opportunity to provide best-in-class customer service.

Investment in the Vision is about having an understanding of our company’s goals and desiring to be a part of this  growth, in order to tackle the challenges we take on.

What our team members choose to do with their time outside of work defines Dynamic Experience, which can be created by traveling, volunteering, learning, and trying new things.

“People get into the Real Estate industry because they want to run their own businesses,” said Ryan Strock, Director of Brokerage Services. “They want to learn. They want to get better. They want to continuously grow. Luxury Living feels the same way about their business as well as all of their agents’ businesses. Grow with us.”
