Alternate title: “Mission (Im)Possible”

We’ve all been through the pain and panic of apartment searching, but our client Collin had a particularly wild ride. 

Collin Found out on a Tuesday that he would be moving to Chicago the following week. With no time to prepare, no budget for visiting, and no idea where to start, a friend suggested AptAmigo

During the first phone call with AptAmigo, Zack walked through Collin’s requirements, preferences, and past concerns, taking detailed notes. Then, he sent over a list of apartments that perfectly fit the bill and Collin narrowed it down to a shortlist. 

Collin got to work packing and preparing for his move. 

Behind the scenes, the operations team was scheduling a full day of tours with each building. Because they had insider relationships, they were able to secure the last-minute viewings.  

We call these “sight unseen” tours.  Because sometimes it’s just not possible for you to visit before your move. In these cases, we’ll send a team member to each building on your behalf to take videos, pictures, and walk you through a virtual tour of each potential apartment! 

In less than a week (and from a completely different city) Collin had his dream apartment locked down. 

Here’s everything Collin had to say about this “Mission (Im)Possible:”


“I had a little less than a week to sort out a place to live before starting a new job in a whole new state/city. 

I made contact on a Friday with Zack and within 30-45 minutes he had 8 tours setup sight unseen for me. 

The team viewed all the places for me by end of day Sunday, 8 different places in different neighborhoods through Chicago. 

They were able to send me videos and details of each place highlighting the pros and cons of each unit (which was 99% pros as all the places they suggested were very nice and were well within my budget). 

By Monday I selected a place and Zack pushed to get me sorted ASAP as he knew I needed a place locked down by Thursday (my move day). 

Being in an entirely different state made things seem impossible for me but Zack got me squared away, and by Tuesday I had a place locked in.

The team was unbelievably helpful and just all around friendly. I would highly suggest them to anyone needing help moving into Chicago from out of state. 

I know my next move within the city will be with the help of AptAmigo

A+ in my book.”
