Cory made the whole process easy!

Couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, friendly and responsive agent. Cory is truly the best and I'd recommend him to anyone!

Jenn DeCastro Thate

My fiancé and I are moving from Michigan back to Illinois and Cory was more than helpful!

He helped ease my mind by being knowledgable about all of the neighborhoods. He also went the extra mile to view a home and send us pictures when we were unable to make the drive out here. I'd definatly recommend Cory, thanks for all of your help.

Cory did an amazing job helping me purchase my first home and was there every step of the way.

My price range was a bit limited and made the whole process take longer than expected, but Cory always remained patient, kind, and available. He quickly identified my needs and what types of places I would be interested in and we at a lot of different units before finding the right one. He goes above and beyond, as he continues to help and answer all my questions, even after I moved in! You're amazing Cory! Thanks for making the whole process fun and enjoyable, I definitely learned a lot!

I worked with Realtor Cory to find an apartment to rent in downtown Chicago.

I started with search criteria that I didn't think could be met and even told him that but he eagerly started working on a search of places for me. Cory set-up a full day of showings that were tailored exactly to what I wanted and within my price range. Not to mention we also had fun exploring different apartments! In one day, I found my future apartment that almost slipped through my hands due to a move in date conflict but Cory quickly used his realtor knowledge and locked down an amazing deal! I couldn't be more excited to move there. Cory made this experience that I thought near impossible fun and easy on me, and most importantly, successful :) I would highly recommend using Option Realty for anyone looking to buy or rent in the Chicago area.

We had an awesome experience working with Cory to find the perfect apartment!

He listened to our needs and showed us places that met them. We ended up choosing the first apartment he showed us - and we love it! Certainly recommend Urban Option and Cory when it comes to house hunting!

I had fed my indeciveness by downloading every realtor app, walking with numerous realtors and switching back and forth between buying or selling, high rise or walk up, etc.

In one half day of walkthroughs, Cory had me signing my lease on my dream apartment. He was very thourough with his prep work. Having me not only tell him what I wanted, but going through exercises to educate me. I learned about the different neighborhoods, what my money was able to get me in each neighborhood and what was truly a "nice to have", versus "need to have". Cory shifted his technique to my limited availability and indecisiveness. He setup an aggressive 20+ Unit, half day walk through schedule. It allowed me to experience each neighboorhood first hand. This gave me the reassurance that I had chosen the best apartment for my lifestyle. Cory carried a large format iPad, in which I initially thought was overkill. But I owe that connectivity for utlimatey being chosen by my landlords. Four people walked the unit that night, with six others scheduled for the next day. Cory strongly encouraged me to fill out the application while he drove, as many application processes have a first in priority. My application was submitted at 7:38, with three others following consecutively [7:51, 8:14 and 8:21]. I had a matching offer with one other, but was chosen due to first submittal. I have, and will continue to suggest Cory to all my friends and family. I will most definitely use his services again, if I ever decide to move from this amazing apartment! Thank you Cory!

Cory did an amazing job helping me and my girlfriend find a place to live downtown.

I gave Cory our price range and our preferred neighborhoods and he quickly put together a list of places to go look at. Cory is extremely knowledgable about all the neighborhoods downtown and gives you plenty of advice as you are touring the apartments. When we found our perfect place, but ran into issues with our landlord, Cory was still there to help us every step of the way, talking with the landlords and their property managers until our issues were resolved. I would definitely recommend Cory to anyone looking to buy/rent a place in the Chicago area. One of the best realtors in town!

Debbie Bormann

Cory was great to work with and very responsive.

We utilized him to rent out our unit in the University Village neighborhood. His experience and recommendations were spot on. He went above and beyond and provided us additional services that a normal agent would not. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to rent out or sell their unit. We are looking forward to working with Cory again in the future for the sale of our unit.
