What Our Clients Say

“I have used GenRealty for both my condo management company and as my sellers agent to sell my condo. Chris is awesome. As a condo management company everything was taken care for. Rent, repairs, and at a lower rate then most companies.  I had two prior management companies and they failed to meet the needs of the renters

As my sellers agent, Chris did everything. I sold my two bedroom condo in Lincoln park within 45 days. We had multiple showings each week. He worked with the renters and made sure that the place was in show condition. He also found a lawyer for the sale and the closing was seamless. Amazing communication, pleasant to work with, a fantastic experience. I wish he worked where I live now in Wisconsin.”

“Renting in Chicago can be tricky–or hellish–depending on who you ask. I’m as skeptical as they come when it comes to navigating the world of renting. Working with Generation Rent is quite simply, life changing. Units appear quickly and seem to disappear even quicker.  Finding Generation Rent was a godsend.  It isn’t often that a management company is out to do the right thing when they could be renting properties with the speed of light. From the moment you inquire about a property, you are treated with the utmost respect.

Chris Johnson and his staff believe that finding the right person to lease one of their properties is key.  They bend over backwards to make sure that all of your questions are answered, that you have an idea of the building, the neighborhood, the extra (or potential) costs, and that the renter knows they can count on Generation Rent.  Maintenance requests are handled exceptionally quickly–most of the time within a day or so.  Generation Rent will even work with you to find other units when your needs change.  I can not recommend them highly enough.”

“For a number of years, I owned and lived in a a condominium in central Evanston. Since moving out of state 4 years ago, the property had become more and more of a challenge to manage. Roughly a year ago, I was at a crossroads between selling the property or engaging property management company.

After and extensive search, I happened to connect with GenRealty. Chris Johnson has been an exception resource to work. As a result, I’ve been extremely pleased with my decision to partner with GenRealty. The service has been very good and very consistent. Kudos to Chris and the team.”

Oliver C

“As a current tenant under Chris Johnson, I have to say the team at GenRealty is as good as it gets. Chris always answers my concerns about apartment repairs, rent payments, or in the unfortunate case of getting locked out.. Always answers in a timely manner and promptly repairs broken appliances. Chris is very friendly and honest. I think I lucked out with the GenRealty team with my recent move to Chicago. I would absolutely recommend to my friends and family.”
