About Us

Start with BJB Properties. Proudly family owned since 1969, our dedication stands alone, with a level of expertise in home design and building maintenance and management matched by our commitment to you.

Our Philosophy

With more than 100 years of collaborative experience in the real estate industry, our team is committed to the rehabbing of the city's finest vintage buildings into elite downtown apartments that offer wonderful modern amenities, while still retaining their classic charm.

In all, we offer thousands of studios, one bedroom, two bedroom and three-bedroom apartments within eight of Chicago's most historic neighborhoods. Each rental home features generous amenities and amazing views, including downtown, the lakefront, a courtyard or a tree-lined street(s).

You'll always have the very best, from your first tour of a property to your move-in day and beyond. Whichever home you choose, you'll be just steps or blocks from prime shopping, dining and culture, acre after acre of outdoor activities, and a great public transit system that gets you around the Chicago map and back home again.
