Darrell did an awesome job in quickly helping me find a place in Chicago that met my needs. He gave advice on neighborhoods as I was coming from a new city and was unfamiliar with Chicago. I wanted a place that was dog-friendly, close to grocery stores, parks and near my new job. I flew in to tour places with Darrell and found a place immediately. I'm very happy with my new neighborhood! June 2015

Darrell Scott was extremely helpful in facilitating our move to Chicago. My wife and I contacted him with very little background knowledge of the city. We simply told him what things we were looking for and he promptly compiled a list of apartments for us to consider. He helped us narrow down the ones we would be most interested in, and ultimately, he helped us find an apartment complex that we are very excited about. He was even willing to meet with us on a Saturday morning to walk us around the city and show us the buildings we were interested in.

I used Darrell Scott as my agent to help find a tenant for my condo. He was wonderful to work with. I only had a short amount of time to find a renter and he worked diligently to find me a tenant in a timely manner. He was very quick to respond to any email, call or text I sent him and seemed to work around the clock. I would recommend him as an agent. July 2014

Darrell was by far the most knowledgeable and friendly broker I have ever worked with. Over the past 4 years, I have been relocated 3 times and this process was by far the most enjoyable. I had one day to search for apartments and Darrell made the day seamless. He lined up multiple options, spent the entire day with my wife and I and helped us sort out several options. I would highly recommend working with Darrell and I will certainly be calling him when we look to buy. May 2016

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. June 2015

I called Luxury Living Chicago early one morning before business hours. My call was returned that very morning and they were able to squeeze me in for an appointment that afternoon with an agent named Darrell. A few hours later, I met Darrell and he drove me to four amazing buildings each of which contained all of my requested amenities (and then some). After narrowing it down to two buildings, I weighed the pros and cons for a couple of days. During that span, Darrell fielded several e-mails and texts from me before I signed at the perfect place. Darrell and LLC were very timely, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend their services. July 2014
