“SRE purchased our building on Melrose in January 2020. As a former condo owner who stayed, I’ve witnessed the vast improvements they’ve made including landscaping, parking lot repairs, security/safety features and replacing the elevator. In my unit, they made a handful of minor repairs, I hadn’t gotten around to fixing myself, within a hour or two. They’ve been extremely forthcoming and responsive. I’m so impressed and happy with them that I just renewed my lease for another year!”

“We are so happy with Rockwell Commons and SRE. Their desire and ability to make sure all our needs are taken care of in a prompt and efficient manner leaves little reason to not stay here for a long time.”

“Vicki and I have been very pleased and impressed with the professional, and highly responsive service SRE has provided during our first-year tenancy at 742 W Buena. ! This accolade applies across the board to maintenance, repairs, security, mechanical and electrical installments, requested and approved, problem-solving, and betterments as well as keeping us informed on various tenant-landlord issues. !….All this while respecting our privacy at the same time. We love our new “home” and hope to stay for a long time to come. We highly recommend SRE as a landlord!!!“

Truly the best experience I've had with rental management--ever. They're on top of maintenance, quick to respond and pleasant to speak with, they have virtually free internet (1 Gig Google Fiber, and it flies). The apartments are updated with stainless appliances, the utilities cost less considering they run all electric (one delivery fee instead of two with natural gas), and best of all they allow dogs. NO breed or weight restrictions. This was incredibly helpful considering I have a Staffordshire Terrier (pit bull), and anybody with any dog on the "aggressive" list understands how difficult it is to find accommodations for our little friends. Honestly don't have any intention of leaving until I decide to purchase. (I apologize for the run-on sentences, but I'm not going back to change them now.) Highly, highly recommend.

SRE Holdings handled COVID-19 in a way that made me feel safe and understood as a tenant. They offered everyone 10% off their rent for MONTHS even before the Shelter In Place was first set, and had the handles and railings disinfected multiple times a day. They also allowed me to break my lease when I lost my job due to COVID and had to move out of state. I stayed in my unit for 13 months and would have stayed under normal circumstances. I loved that they do not have breed or size restrictions for dogs, which allowed me to adopt my puppy while living there. I would highly recommend SRE Holdings to anyone looking to rent in Chicago!

Lived at Rockwell Commons for 3 years and have nothing but good things to say about SRE. Quick to respond, maintenance requests big and small always attended to very promptly. Also, staff was generally just accommodating and friendly. I have and will continue to highly recommend SRE to all renters looking for a great company!!!

I have rented lots over this city, and SRE is a constant reminder of what a rental property company should aspire to be. Well maintained building and shared spaces, and prompt communication and tending to any issues within the apartment themselves. I believe rent is fair for the area, and I hope to stay in this apartment for many years to come!

This is the best properties company I have ever rented from. I recently moved but rented at Rockwell Commons for 5 years with my husband. The property was always kept up (snow clearing on side walks first thing, landscaping, painted doors and fences). They were also extremely responsive. We didn't have many issues, but once emailed about one of the washers not filling with water. They had someone come out and fix it first thing the next day. I also left my keys at home one time and called them. They were there within 15 minutes to let me in and even waited a moment to ensure my keys were inside. They are super polite, organized, and all around great landlords and just seem like genuine people.

We lived in Rockwell Commons for 1 year and had pleasure staying there. If we had any issues or concerns of anything they responded very fast. Once a simple noise kept bothering me from the roof (we lived on a top floor) and you know what, they found that weird noise and fixed it. On the next day. I was impressed. But the most important for me personally is that they are pet friendly and kept fair objective policy toward pets. When we moved out they evaluated our apartment clear objectively. The laundry is always fixed, in winter it always clean, the management cares. So recommend!

My roommates and I have lived in an apartment managed by SRE holdings for three years and it has been the best experience ever. We get punctual fulfillments of our maintenance requests and a very responsive management team. They were also very helpful during the COVID crisis in sanitizing high-touch surfaces in the lobby often and being lenient toward tenants.

We have had the pleasure of living in two different SRE properties. They have always been attentive and quick in responding to any issue. Their upkeep of the property is constant, and the staff has always been great to deal with. We've had good landlords and bad; SRE tops the list of the good ones. We heartily recommend them.

SRE Holdings had to deal with two sublets in our apartment just 1.5 months after starting our lease due to two roommates receiving job offers in different cities. They even fixed our bathroom shower on a Saturday night shortly after we sent them an email explaining the issue. They have been exceptional as a property management company and that is not easy to get nowadays. I would recommend anyone to lease an apartment from SRE Holdings.

I love love love living in Rockwell Commons and SRE Holdings is a wonderful property management group. Any time there is an issue (which they are few and far between) maintenance is very quick to respond and my troubles are always resolved within the same day. They give ample notice of when they will need access to your unit for regular maintenance things, and they leave my space perfectly kept- I wouldn't even know if they came in or not. I can't say enough good things, I hear horror stories from friends about their property management / landlords being awful, but I have found a gem here in Lincoln Square with my apartment and such a great property management group. Aside from the management group, my neighbors in the building are all wonderful as well. People say hi to each other! This is my first time living on my own and they have exceeded my expectations of how a tenant should be cared for. They've set the bar so high! My rent is reasonable, my apartment is honestly so cute and although it is a studio I feel like I have so much space. They are also pet friendly here which is a huge plus for me. I love living in this space so much I renewed my lease for another year and will probably stay here for as long as I can 🙂 Other little positives that mean a lot to me: they plowed the walkway / sidewalks around the building very shortly after it snowed a ton, they take care of the little flower pots outside of the main entrance, there is laundry on site with a good amount of washers and dryers available to use. Truly if you are renting from SRE you will not be disappointed!

This is long over due. I lived at the 493 Sheridan Rd building in Evanston for over 5 years. The only reason I left was because they decided to rehab the building. I can not say enough wonderful things about this company. If you plan on living at this location you are in for a treat. Victor is the maintenance person and he is amazing. He can fix anything and is nice as can be. Really the whole staff is incredible especially Jeff! They are professional, quick to accommodate any maintenance issues, and clean up after they are finished. I have lived in many places and this by far is the best maintained place. I can't tell you how much I appreciated their hard work and kindness. You can't go wrong renting from SRE. I miss living there.

Very happy I choose to live here in the Fall of 2012. Located at 6341-6343 N. Wayne near Loyola. Management responds to concerns and issues immediately. Manager on site and makes for a safe and cooperative environment. Helped put a garden in the back and the building definitely has evolved over the past few years to become a home. Neighbors care about the building, the plants and the overall safety. Rent is extremely reasonable for Chicago. Windows were replaced this Spring. Made a huge difference. Hard wood floors, storage, green grass, gardens and laundry in the building. Tree lined street and parking available behind the building. The neighborhood has improved immensely. Very considerate and caring neighbors with a great manager. Thanks for extending my lease.

SRE Holdings has been by far the best property management group I have had in Chicago. They are quick to respond whenever I need assistance whether is be on the weekend or weekday. They regularly check their voicemails on the helpline and have given me a call back within the hour - without exception. Maintenance is very friendly and always on top on things whether that be shoveling snow or fixing an appliance. I would highly recommend!
