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.”
