“I have been living as a graduate student in Chicago for 6.5 years. During the last 3.5 years, my partner and I have been tenants of Roland. We are both graduate students with busy and unpredictable schedules. We are both the opposite of “handy” and as a result, we have called upon Roland many times. If we could describe Roland in one word it would be: responsive.


Roland encourages his tenants to contact him at any time. Roland is readily accessible via text, phone call, and/or email. He often stops by the property to tend to the front and back gardens (which are beautiful), to pick up trash on the sidewalk, or just say a friendly hello. Roland responds immediately to any concern. He is respectful of our space and patient with our ever-changing student schedules.


Roland has always communicated respectfully and in a timely manner. For example, when the city of Chicago has enacted new laws that have resulted in a change in our apartment lease, he has given us more than adequate time to understand and make decisions–such as the renewing of our lease.


Having lived on the east and west coasts, and abroad, Roland is (by far) the most ethical, responsive, and generally kind landlord I have ever had!”


Thank you,
