Downtown Apartment Company LLC is a free apartment finding service focused on luxury and high-end apartments. Located in Chicago, IL, this company serves downtown Chicago, including locations in Streeterville, Gold Coast, Old Town, the Loop, Near West Loop, Near South Loop, Lakeshore East, River North and more. The company was formed in 2009 and provides its services for free to individuals. Their clients make it a point to live close to the office, nightlife and other downtown amenities.

The service begins when an individual calls or emails the company to request help finding an apartment. The client is then asked questions about their specific tastes and interests in an apartment and are presented with some options and ideas about an apartment that fits their needs, including some options that they might have not considered in their initial search. After a discussion of some of the top options with the client, one of the company's trained leasing consultants will arrange showings, while taking the client from one apartment to the next, all for free. The client is offered advice on every apartment they view. The agent will discuss all the options available to the client, and if the client decides on a building or an apartment that they looked at while touring with Downtown Apartment Company, the building or landlord pays the company a commission. Visit the website for Downtown Apartment Company to view biographies of the staff, see the current listings and contact the company to begin the process of viewing luxury high-end apartments.
