Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to some frequently asked questions about Elan:

Q: Why is Elan a FREE service for renters?

A: Elan earns a commission from the landlord or property manager of a unit, which is why we are a FREE service to renters. Give us a try!

Q: What can Elan do for me?

A: Elan offers comprehensive real estate brokerage services, so whether you are a renter, landlord, buyer, or seller, Elan can help. To get started, you can click on any of the links to the right or:

  1. Send us a quick email explaining how we can help to [email protected].

  2. Give us a call at 773.698.8383 and let us know how we can assist.

  3. If you're looking to rent or buy, you can search our robust online database of rental and sales properties in the Chicago area. Our database has our up-to-date inventory of available listings all the way from the nearby suburbs to downtown Chicago. We also service the north, west, and south sides of Chicago. Since we are not a property management company, but a brokerage, we can show you a virtually unlimited inventory of available apartments, condos, townhomes, and single family homes.

    While you're browsing our website, you have the option to create an account to save properties you like, to email them or share them with friends and family, and to be alerted when new listings matching your criteria come on the market. Once you have a short list of properties to see in person, you can give us a call or send us an email, so we can schedule a time to show you the properties you'd like to see. Once we've scheduled a time, we can either meet you at the property or, if you prefer, we can meet you at our office and drive you to your showing(s). IT'S THAT SIMPLE!

Our office is conveniently located in the North Center neighborhood and there is plenty of street parking available. You can leave your car at our office or come to our office by CTA (Brown Line "Irving Park" stop, Irving Park bus, or Lincoln Avenue bus).

Q: How is Elan different from other real estate rental brokerages?

A: Elan strives to exceed expectations in two ways:

  1. We are on the cutting edge of technology, since we leverage the most up-to-date tools to help our clients find the perfect home. For starters, our state-of-the-art online searchable database is second to none in Chicago. You can search by geographical area, type of property, features, amenities, size, and price. You can even store your favorite search results. Once you've found a home you'd like to rent or buy, we have state-of-the-art technology to help move the transaction through seamlessly and intelligently, from our paperless platform to our post-close follow through. Give us a try and see what we can do for you!

  2. The second way in which we differentiate ourselves is that we provide truly excellent client service. We mean it!
