Just wanted you to know I moved in at the beginning of the month, and the property has exceeded expectations. The unit was CLEAN when I moved in, maintenance responds in a timely manner, and the staff have been friendly. Thanks and keep up the great work!

Denise is amazing! She is so responsive and can answer any questions you have. I bother her almost every day and she can always help me out with a smile. Highly suggest those interested in renting with BJB to go for it, their service is great.

Ashley P

I just love my sunny corner unit! My studio has a nice open floor plan, with a spacious walk in closet that leads you into the bathroom. Its very Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City! The set of 8 washer dryers in the basement is so convenient, and I love getting all my laundry done at once. Sometimes I'll even jump on one of the treadmills and get my work out on while I wait to switch my clothes over to the dryer.

A big thank you to Leon, building manager. Leon, has been wonderful to deal with for the past year. I've always been able to reach him and he has returned my calls promptly. Any and all concerns or situations that I've had have been dealt with courteously, professionally, and optimistically. Even requests that were beyond his scope of duties as a manager. I don't know what I would have done without his assistance.

I have lived in the 451 building for 3 years and can't speak enough about the wonderful experience I have had, or how much I have enjoyed living here. I feel safe, the building is clean, updated and very well maintained. Mike H., the building manager, is fantastic and has really improved things over the last couple of years. He and his team respond immediately via email or phone, they are reliable, quick to get a work order in and always follow through. They are incredibly warm and friendly and always helpful. There is constant and consistent communication with the tenants, whether it's through memos or email, of any building updates or news.

I've lived in a BJB property for a little over a year and I have really enjoyed it. I can only speak to the 443/451 Wrightwood location but have had a really positive experience living in this building.

-- 451 W. Wrightwood


The apartments are beautiful and this is the most well-maintained building I have ever lived in. The management has been easy to communicate with and incredibly responsive to questions and concerns. I have found that whenever I have had the rare issue, they have been willing to work with me to find a solution. Everyone from the management to the people who do repairs really care about making the apartment a wonderful place to live.

From finding my apartment, to moving in, to any maintenance issues I've had in my apartment, to now subleasing my apartment, I have had a wonderful experience with BJB. Thank you so much for everything, and for making processes that are normally a huge headache into very easy and stress free!

I wanted to send a big Thank You to Adam, our building manager. This is by far the best experience I have had moving into an apartment. He has been extremely responsive and accommodating. I have had some poor experiences in the past, so this is a breath of fresh air. Thank you!

The Staff at BJB is great, any issues that come up are solved very quickly; All staff members are very nice and always a pleasure to talk to. It is a pleasure living in this building. Experiences with Amenities: The rooms are priced fairly, they come with everything you could want. Heat, Cable, Internet, etc is all included. Each apartment has a kitchen including a refrigerater and dish washer. Laundry rooms are easy to get to and big enough that you never have to wait for someone else to finish their laundry before you can start yours. Experiences with Apartments: So far my experience here has been great, there is a friendly staff and a great living experience.Suggestions: the BJB staff pretty much has it all covered.

Our leasing agent Sean was wonderful and very helpful with everything during the move-in process. He answered all of our questions and helped us with whatever we needed!

Thank you to BJB for the great little studio for my daughter this past year. BJB is a top notch company and maybe she will re rent in future after she finishes school.

-- 2244 N. Cleveland


I just want to acknowledge the excellent work that Ricky did when helping me out with setting up my apartment and fixing parts of the apartment for me. He was very nice and efficient with his work.

-- 18 E. Elm


I have been renting with Bjb for the last year and have decided to renew my lease again this year. I want to let you know that Ashley (who works at 25 e Delaware and also 211 e Delaware) is a MAJOR reason why I have decided to stay. She is extremely professional, nice and easy to work with. She always communicates well with me and I always know what to expect/what's going on with anything that I ask of her. Great job at hiring such an awesome person!!!

-- 211 E. Delaware


I would say that I am thankful for the quick response of the management team as well as maintenance when an issue does arise. Everyone is friendly, polite, accommodating and easy to work with to get things accomplished in a timely manner.

Andrea is our Property Manager and she does an excellent job. She and her staff have organized and hosted tenant get-togethers several times now.  I greatly enjoy them and other tenants tell me that they enjoy them also. Andrea provides coffee, bagels and speads and doughnuts for us and provides us with a place to relax, chat and get to know other tenants. It's a really pleasant experience and Andrea is a gracious hostess. It's a really nice perk to living here.

-- 443 W. Wrightwood

Ricky is AMAZING guy! He fixed everything what I want. Of course, he fixed the problem which I didn't recognize. He is really nice. I asked him lots of question about my place (how to save power, how to make toilet clean without fan, etc) and he explained those thing in detail! Thanks A LOT Ricky! I know that he is really busy nowadays, but he works really hard! GREAT GUY!

Ricky is a treasure to have employed by BJB maintenance. I placed a work order for the bathtub drain to be unclogged and not only did he handle the situation in a quick, quiet manner (I'm a graduate student working on finals) but he also took it upon himself to fix other things he noticed weren't quite up to par in the bathroom which includes a slow sink drain, changing my shower head, and applying a spray to help open the bathroom window a little easier. Ricky is the very best and it really helps confirm why I love BJB properties. He is the absolute best.

Coming from out of state to the windy city is a big move, but finding your future home is the hardest. After a week of searching and showing I was lucky to get introduced to one of BJB properties. I entered the building and while walking to the elevator you can feel how clean, smell fresh, organize, modern everything looks. After that showing all want to do is sign my lease lol.

The reason I chose 4100 is because it is pet friendly. I found it really hard to find an apartment near the lake, with great amenities, and pret friendly for a reasonable price. It is near the lake which provides a great trail to take my dog on a walk. Did i mention the awesome rooftop! Prime location to view the air and water show from.

451 W. Wrightwood has definitely been one of the better apartment choices I've made in the city. The location is excellent (Lincoln Park is my back yard), the building is secure and well maintained, and the staff is responsive and friendly

-- 451 W. Wrightwood

Jacqueline W.

Overall, the building and apartment are great. There are just a few minor things that could make things better!

-- 451 W. Wrightwood


By far 4100 Marine Drive is the best place ive lived at because not only do they offer clean and upgraded apartments and their location cannot be beat! It is close to the lake and conveniently located near punlic transit. Overall I give 4100 a 10.

I love living here, the staff is always very responsive and courteous.

I moved to 4100 N marine Drive over a year ago and continued to lease from here because for the location and amenities the price cant be beat. I looked at other locations but 4100 proved to be the best bang for your buck.

This apartment/agency has been good to me over the past two years. Unfortunately, the increased rent for no increase of space is the reason I am leaving. I would definitely recommend this building to a young 20-something fresh out of school trying to get his/her life started; it's perfect for that life situation!

-- 443 W. Wrightwood

Adrienne B

Friendly staff, chill neighbords and a fantastic location. I host a lot of get together with my good friend and they all have a wonderful time! How could the not with a balcony, roof, a short walk to montrose beach and a bunch of neat little sports along the way. Thank you to everyone involved to making this a pleasant living space.

-- 4100 N. Marine Dr.


I am moving out only because I need a larger apartment. I received great service + care from BJB and I have recommended you to friends, I would rent again if budget allows.

I have lived here for 2 years and enjoyed it very much

-- 451 W. Wrightwood


Move in May 2013 at the 4100 Marine Dr location. The views are breathtaking and my experiences here has been nothing short of amazing. The building is clean and the staff is more than accomadating. They do aboce and beyond to ensure all my roommate and I's needs are met. Also the rooftop deck is perfect for a nice summer view of the lake. I am very satisfied with my choise of BJB properties and look forward to spending more years living here.
