Thanks for checking out our little web site. http://BestRents.net is a small real estate company located in "Bridgeport USA" and we pride ourselves on making apartments available that are usually a little under market prices to be competitive.

We have been here for a quarter of a century and are in it for the "long run". Some of our tenants have been with us from the very beginning which speaks for itself. If you like our site and what we are doing we would like to hear from you so please send us a note.

Keeping apartment rental prices reasonable is an increasingly difficult challenge, especially in this new economy.. The Chicago real estate taxes have been raised to 3 times more than the rest of the state. Add to that the price of rising insurance premiums, garbage removal, pest control, plumbing, roofing, contractors, evictions, legal costs, cleaning, water bills, mortgages, the list goes on and our bills add up . Never-the-less we are still determined to do everything possible to provide decent rental prices.

That often includes working with the tenants as "partners" creating a team to keep unnecessary costs as low as possible.

Most of our properties are in, or nearby Bridgeport. If you are not familiar with Bridgeport it is a unique "low key" neighborhood where 3 Chicago mayors have lived during their term in office and is conveniently located right off of the Dan Ryan Expressway and a few blocks to I-55 and Lake Shore Drive. The downtown "loop" area is usually only about 10 minutes away. You may see movie crews on location filming world class movies, as well as world famous Cellular Field on 35th Street.

All the great food of China Town is just a few blocks away and there are many new condos and lofts available. Look at those rental prices and compare it to what we have to offer from time to time.

When you become one of our tenants you get a direct line to our office routed to "Bill" who is very accessible to talk to personally every business day. To keep expenses as low as possible we have no employees and Bill takes pride in showing every unit personally. There is a direct maintenance number for independent contractors who we work closely with and you may usually call them directly. Sometimes a building manager is assigned by us to help you with little things day to day.

Bill has a different attitude than you may have been used to in the past, and is a progressive thinker always open to new ideas. He gets along well with young local students from the neighborhood (IIT college, UIC college and College of Optometry) as well as older retired tenants always thinking "outside the box" and viewing life with fresh perspectives open to new suggestions. Bill still gets a kick out of a few Christmas cards we always receive and display each year from our younger tenants sometimes addressed to "The Cool Landlord". His musical bio is at http://billsboating.homestead.com/New...

We believe his creativity and problem solving ability was acquired from his many years early in life as a successful rock musician & bandleader. In 1976 & 1977 he even lived in a van for a couple of years when he had difficulty finding anyone who would rent to him. BestRents supports our new president Barack Obama and Bill goes way back to the early 1970's when he worked full time for many years with international blues star Otis Rush before equal rights was fashionable.
