Looking for home rental or apartment in Chicagoland area.

I'm moving back to chicago because my kid tested into the gifted program with CPS. I was done with chicago winters but I don't want to pass up an educational opportunity for my children. I'm a single mom with two children. My price range is $1000 - $1100 monthly.

  • PeacockFeathers Douglas Diva

    I will be emailing you soon, Kim.


    I'm an agent also however, I find the amount of rentals on the MLS sparse. I recommend you check out www.padmapper.com for rentals. You can search many different ways and it has good content.

    As a landlord when I have vacancies I put them on Padmapper and the MLS and get more leads from Padmapper. The MLS is a great tool for buying/selling but many people don't want to pay an agent to rent their place out.

Police were alerted and upon further inspection, noticed that the camera's micro disk also captured two women in the female locker room of Robert Weiss' other office at Illinois Masonic Hospital at 836 W. Wellington, Assistant State's Attorney Lorraine Scaduto said.
