I reached out to Elan Leasing and a few other firms for a June 1 move date. Timothy Wolf from Elan responded immediately and was so wonderful to work with. He hooked me up with several custom searches in MLS (aka the big real estate database in the sky) so I got notice of any apartments that came onto the market that met my specifications. This was great because I was the one who decided which apartments I wanted to visit.

Timothy was also SUPER quick to respond to my dozens of emails and texts about wanting to visit places and other questions. For the place I ended up signing, I saw it on Elan''s website on a Monday afternoon and he set up a visit the next morning!

In the thin rental market this year, having an agent that was on the ball made a huge difference in getting an apartment that I liked at a reasonable price. Come the summer I will be a resident of Lincoln Square and I couldn''t be happier with my apartment, the price, or the neighborhood. Thank you Timothy for all your hard work!

Timothy W. at Elan Realty got me into a great apartment in WRP. He was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. Listened to all my concerns and found me exactly what I wanted and guided me through all the paperwork and signings.
Tim great at what he does and I recommend both him and Elan Realty Group to anyone who needs help buying/renting/selling.
Thanks Tim!

My name is Jude S. My husband Seth B and I recently visited Chicago to find an apartment rental in Andersonville. Timothy Wolf was our agent, and he was simply fantastic.

As my husband''s email below indicates, we didn''t ultimately choose one of Timothy''s listings. But we were seriously impressed with Timothy''s knowledge of the area, his assessment of our needs and wants, his organization and professional skills, and the listings he showed us. Had serendipity not intervened, we could''ve easily been happy in more than one of the units Timothy showed us.

It''s not often that you come across a real estate agent like Timothy. While we''re renting for our first year in Chicago, we intend to buy next year - and calling Timothy will be our first order of business when we do so. We will also pass his name along to our new landlord and any friends moving to the area.

"My husband and I are moving to Chicago, and we were pretty overwhelmed by the prospect of finding an apartment in a totally new city. We also had the added complication of having two dogs, one of which is 50 pounds.

Timothy was incredibly helpful in our hunt. He was very responsive to our requests, drove us all over the place, and told us a lot about the different neighborhoods. We spent a good part of Saturday looking at places, then we went back to Timothy''s office to see if there were any other listings that might match what we were looking for once we knew a little bit more about the areas. Timothy even set up a showing later on Saturday so that we could have as many options as possible. He was incredibly proactive, and we would certainly recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment in Chicago."

My rep was Tim Wolf and may I just say that he was by far the most thorough and responsive broker we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. We came here from new York as I was being relocated and we basically had to do everything via phone email and fax. Tim''s response to my initial email caught our attention from the start and he provided very unbiased, honest and detailed explanations to even the simplest of questions which was very much appreciated as we had a lot of them considering that both my wife and I were completely new to the area. His approach was very easy, without bias or agenda and he stood his middle ground firmly between us and the landlord, a refreshing change coming from the market we had just left. It is because of this experience that we will definitely be using rent smart again in the future for both rental and purchasing and I plan on speaking to my firm, jpmorgan''s HR department, about the very positive experience I''ve had with your company.

Thanks again!

Timothy was truly wonderful to work with. He really digs deep and goes the extra mile. Timothy bailed us out when a separate deal fell though and was able to find us a place and get us the keys within 24 hours!

As always it was a pleasure to work with Timothy Wolf. He gave me great advice and made this 2nd transaction very smooth. He always responds to questions and concerns in a very timely manner. I’ve recommended your services to all my close friends, clients and relatives.

Tim is great! He should get a raise or a trophy or, at the very least, a medal. He absolutely went above and beyond to help us find our apartment, and he is a true asset to your team.

Thank you!
