Mr. Fred Chubin of Elan was very helpful in finding me both a temporary apartment to live in on two days notice, as well as a property I made an offer on and closed recently. He has a good working knowledge of the north side of Chicago, and quickly understood what my priorities were and found a range of interesting properties that were mostly within my parameters and price range, as well as a few just outside, which was useful to understand where the market was. The house I just bought was well within my price range and budget for repairs, suits my needs perfectly, and is only two blocks from the California Blue Line stop. Proximity to the L is critical for me (not having a car), and Fred was good at finding reasonable properties within that constraint without busting my budget. He was able to get me into a majority of the interesting properties, and the few he could not were not due to Fred or Elan, but rather sloppy and unprofessional practice of the seller or the seller''s agent.

I had already been denied an apartment due to bad credit. I contacted Elan Realty in regards to a Studio I had seen an ad for, and the phone was answered by Fred Chubin. I explained my situation: I own a dog, I have somewhat bad credit, and I need a place to live. Fred was great from the first moment I spoke to him. He told me to stop panicking, and that he could help. He guided me through steps to get my credit back on track-surely not part of his job, but certainly information I needed. He then spoke with a management company on my behalf. He found me a great unit, fought the credit fight for me, and I just found out today that I''ve been accepted for the Studio!
Thanks Fred, and thanks to Elan Realty.

Just rented an apartment from Elan Realty Group and Fred Chubin made it easy. I told him what I was looking for and he took me to 2 places here in Chicago. The 2nd place was what I was looking for. I was approved in 1 day. Found the apartment on Monday, approved Tuesday and move-in on Friday. So far so good! Sign the lease today, get the keys today and all seems to me going well. So if you want a guy who knows what you want Fred Chubin is your guy!!!!!

I reached out to Elan leasing to look out for an apartment in evanston. Fred Chubin from Elan showed me multiple apartments which fitted in my budget and are ready to move in. This really gave me a good choice and didnt had to go to some other firm to look out for more apartments.

Fred is honest, straight forward and most importantly he understood my needs and constraints of an apartment. The apartments in Evanston were getting filled every other day and I was running out of options; however it was nice to see Fred determined enough to find an apartment for me which suits my needs.

Overall, I had a nice experience with Elan.

After a LOONG search on craigslist nd other websites, someone gave me Fred Chubin''s card from Elan group.

He showed me the appartment I wanted to rent, then asked me if I want to see another, which he thinks its similar to what I need.

what can I say...it was PERFECT! for the same amount of money we have parking too, now.

A+ and thank you, Fred!
