WHY APA?

Umbrella and house symbolHASSLE-FREE PROPERTY OWNERSHIP WITHOUT THE WORRIES

APA Realty Inc caters specifically to the needs of investors and property owners in Chicago and surrounding suburbs who don’t want to (or can’t) manage their properties themselves. We handle every aspect of managing your property with great attention to managing your costs and maximizing your revenue. As property owners ourselves you can rest assured that we’re managing your property as if it were our own.

  •   We are experts in Chicago Landlord-Tenant law and our company exclusively manages residential properties in Chicago and surrounding areas. We are A rated by the Better Business Bureau and we consistently have the highest client rankings on Google and other websites.
  • We offer a unique skipped rent coverage to protect you from the unexpected.
  • We use Innovative Marketing methods to get your home rented quickly. These include a unique phone number for each home, instant showings for potential tenants, extensive data tracking of web hits, phone calls and showings, and weekly updates to you.
  • We provide a Six Month Guarantee on any tenant we place.* If for any reason our tenant is in default of the lease, we will find you a new tenant at no additional cost.
  • We use our own Custom Lease that provides extra protection** for you through the use of separate addenda for all types of issues including bed bugs, mold, HOA costs, pets, repairs, etc.
  • You don’t have to wait for your rent! We deposit funds directly to your once a month with no lag and no maintenance reserve. This means you get all of your money quickly.
  • Our Professional Maintenance team provides Best-In-Class service and pricing. Our team is trained to add extra value and save money on every service call.
  • We send you regular Video Tours of your Property. This includes move-in, move out and bi-annual tours. These no cost tours are another tool we use to minimize your risk and assist in the maintenance of your investment.
  • Our vacancies average less than 5% of total units under management. Why don’t you see 15-20 or more properties advertised on our website? Because we get our properties rented quickly and we keep them rented!
  • Our vacant homes rent quickly because we’re focused on results. Our homes are clean and ready to live in, we advertise aggressively, we answer phone calls and emails and we take our time with potential tenants.
  • We use Cutting Edge Technology to Optimize our Processes and Minimize your Costs. All of your statements, invoices, leases, documents and conversations will be available to you 100% of the time via your owner portal. You’ll receive email alerts and links to photos and videos of your property.
  • We have low monthly fees and only charge you for the extras when you need them. We could charge a higher monthly fee and eliminate some of our additional fees, but why should a low-maintenance property subsidize a problem property?
  • We put utilities in the company’s name when your home is vacant. You don’t need to worry about paying these bills. We don’t charge a fee for this service and this way they’ll show as expenses on your year-end statement.

We can manage a renovation or turnover at the lowest possible cost. Our maintenance team is expert in home renovations. Additionally, we have forged beneficial relationships with all trade types and our volume ensures that we obtain the best value possible for our clients.

  • Our tenants love us! We address their problems quickly and professionally and our tenants tend to renew their leases with us. Many of our tenants have referred their friends and families to us. This saves you money in turnover and vacancy costs.
  • We pride ourselves on creating and using internal processes and procedures to ensure that we’re providing the best possible service and value to our clients and tenants.
  • We utilize our backgrounds in engineering and financial management and analysis to identify and monitor key metrics in each area of our business. This ensures that each area of our business runs efficiently and provides the best value to our clients.
  • We’re not too big to provide personal service to our clients or tenants. Your property manager will know your properties and tenants and be able to speak about them with personal knowledge.
  • We are constantly and consistently improving our systems and processes to provide world-class service and value.
