CORE is centrally located in the city of Chicago. We manage throughout Chicago and most of the surrounding suburbs. We are local Chicagoans and have a deep understanding of the city's distinct neighborhoods and what it takes to have a well-managed property in each area. Our operations are built from a successful property management platform in the real-estate industry with a combined record of over 30 years managing commercial and residential properties.
We serve a growing need for a professional property management and resident-leasing service that specializes in residential real estate, condo associations, and small commercial properties in the greater Chicagoland area. As a full-service management firm, we offer resident placement, resident screening, maintenance supervision, property inspections, collections, and monthly financial reporting.
Our team approach to property management features specialized service departments that apply expert service directly to the servicing of your account. We believe that each facet of property management requires an expert to provide the highest-quality service. Our team divides these duties according to each team member's strengths and expertise.
There are many property management companies to choose from...
CORE is not a by-product of a real-estate firm looking to make a few bucks on the side managing properties. CORE, instead, was built from the ground up with the mission of increasing the quality and efficiency of managing properties, which is an otherwise fragmented and broken industry.
We understand that once you start treating a property like a rental, it eventually will dilapidate into one. We also have no maintenance markups, one of the profitability secrets in the property management business. We hire only the best and pass our considerable purchasing power right on to you.
Investment properties must be maintained like your own home
We learned long ago that by not inspecting rental properties frequently, changing furnace filters regularly, cleaning gutters, and inspecting the property annually, those expensive deferred maintenance items can stack up and eliminate any profit an owner hoped to make on a property. The matter is worse for owners who are renting their home waiting for a more favorable selling environment. For you, a worst-case scenario is having to reinvest thousands of dollars into the property only to bring it back up to the standard in which you left it.
We also understand the importance of screening and selecting the right residents and holding residents financially responsible for maintaining the property as their own. This requires ongoing communications between the property management company and residents throughout the year. We work closely with clients to create feasible budgets. Throughout this process, we look for ways to reduce expenditures and increase income.
Technology is critical for successful property management
Profitable rental property requires the harnessing of technology and systems. We at CORE employ state-of-the-art property management tools and systems that encompass maintenance, financing, and communications tools. Technology enables an owner to maximize profit.
