I can’t speak highly enough about the experience my partner and I had with Tristen and Luxury Living! Tristen did such a fantastic job of carefully listening to our needs, curating the perfect series of apartments for us to tour in Chicago, and graciously handling a few curveballs we threw at him along the way. On our day of apartment tours, I loved how Tristen was FULL of helpful (or otherwise interesting) facts about each building and took the lead on jotting down unit infoand pricing at each building so my partner and could focus our attention on exploring the units themselves. Tristen also did an A+ job at firmly sticking to our budget and gently guiding us towards our ultimate decision in a way that felt natural/helpful, opposed to pushy. It honestly felt like we were touring apartments with a trusted friend opposed to a broker, and Tristen’s close relationships with each and every building we visited bolstered my trust even further and made the overall experience feel 10x more personable.
All of the above lead to us finding the apartment of our dreams, and while we were excited to sign a 2-year lease, I fully intend on calling upon his services as soon as we decide to change scenery again!

Since leaving my college town in 1997, I’ve lived in 8 cities, owned 4 homes, and rented countless apartments. Tristen Heimann is by far the best agent I’ve ever encountered. He was prepared, attentive, prompt, professional, thoroughly networked with building management, knowledgeable, and honest. If you are serious about finding an ideal home in Chicago, I highly recommend calling Tristen. He will find what you want, honor your budget, and respect your time. Moreover, he’s quite pleasant.

This was my second time with Luxury Living Chicago and again I was blown away by the amazing value I got out of it. Not only we found the perfect place in the first hour of the tour but Tristen Heimann made it a unique and fun experience. Both times I worked with Tristen he made our task of choosing a new home so fun and pleasant with his perfect picks, flexibility and all the energy he brings with him. It really makes a difference when you work with someone that likes what he does and is good at it! Thanks, to Luxury Living Chicago and Tristen Heimann for helping us once again!

As a foreigner, looking for an apartment abroad is challenging. I found Luxury Living Chicago website on google, and I already knew they would offer me good options and would be professional. I worked with Tristen Heimann, He was very kindly in every moment! He showed me a lot of nice places and during the visits, he perceived my preferences and indicated new buildings and advised me where would be the best place for me to live. I highly recommend this company and thank Tristen for helping me find my dream apartment! July 2016

I had no idea apartment hunting could be so stress-free and fun! From the moment I submitted my form online, I knew we were in good hands. Tristen got in touch with me immediately and took the time to understand our budget, and what location and features we were looking for. He lined up a stellar slate of showings, each of which was better than the last and all of which met our needs. It was so nice that Tristen picked us up from the train station and took us to each of the locations. It would never have been possible for my husband and to find such amazing place, for such a great deal, in only a weeks time without Tristen's help. I cannot recommend this service enough! Thanks, Tristen!
West Loop Resident Demi H.
Tristen is the best of the best! This will be the second apartment Tristen has helped me and my boyfriend find here in Chicago. He is beyond professional. Tristen always comes fully set up for our appointment so we don't waste a minute of the day he sets aside for us. He also listens to our concerns and parameters while being respectful and very pleasant, not pushy in any way. My boyfriend and I will always want to work with and refer Tristen to friends and family since he's so fantastic and makes the tedious job of searching for a new home actually fun! Thanks, as always, for putting up with my joyful dancing when we find the perfect apartment and for continuously going over all the math again and again (and again)! You're amazing, Tristen!

From the first email with Tristen Heimann, I knew I would be well taken care of as I navigated my apartment search. The experience became stress-free as Tristen took the reigns and carefully selected apartments to visit that fit my needs, wants and desires. He took the time to talk things out with me and was very knowledgeable about the area and the developments. There was never a dull moment with Tristen as he created a comfortable atmosphere throughout the day that left me knowing I had found the perfect building that hit all of my check marks. I highly recommend this experience with Luxury Living and with Tristen! June 2017

One year later Tristen did it again! An extremely knowledgeable broker who knows his clients very well. Tristen assisted me last year moving into the downtown area and he assisted me this year moving around the downtown area. He is very detailed oriented and will only show you what you want to see. Tristen knows his clients want greatness and he provides just that. See you again next year, Tristen! Tristen was the broker who assisted me in locating a great downtown rental. I am extremely happy with the level of service I received. He made it feel as though it was just as important to him as it was to me to have an excellent place. He interviewed me and carefully noted my likes, dislikes and price range. He additionally made sure featured places would accommodate my “slightly” rotund English bulldog. Unfortunately, due to a complicated work schedule, I had to cancel our touring days twice. He understood and sacrificed his day off to drive me to building to building. You can tell Tristen takes pride in his work as he knew every aspect and history of the building we viewed. Additionally, if you’re riding with him take mental notes as he tells you little-known facts about the city streets which actually could help you impress your visiting guests. Thanks again for all your hard work! July 2016
