How does your service stand out?

We have successfully serviced our clients throughout the Chicagoland are since 2006 and understand the importance of paying close attention to customer service by providing our investors, clients and tenants with unparalleled service. Our speciality stretches beyond residential and commercial property management into a focus on property value preservation and appreciation, investor financial/cost analysis, quality investor property searches, diligent sales contract negotiations and long term market analysis.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The thing I enjoy most about my job is that no two days are ever the same. Whether we are helping our clients find a new investment property or trouble-shooting issues, each day brings new challenges. Addressing these challenges to meet our clients’ needs gives me a sense of fulfillment and accomplishment. There is no monotony in this business and that makes each day exciting.

    These guys are simply AWESOME! You will not find anyone who will do a better job managing your property. We hired them on a property that we were having trouble finding a good tenant... they solved that problem fast and it is now a hassle free property.

    Bad Impression
    I've been with Fundamental since October 1, 2016, so far they have been no-shows for the 2 Introductory meetings with the tenants and we have a 3 meeting scheduled for this morning. I am not impressed with them at all.

    Thanks for the feedback Mark. The 2 introductory meeting were rescheduled and we now have a confirmed meeting with tenant for Wednesday October 19, 2016 at 12:00 noon.

    Thus far, I am nothing short of relieved to have chosen Al and Jackie. Al goes out of his way for me in a chaotic time of moving. Out of the whole process, him and his team are the one facet I don't have to continously reach out to or worry about things getting done or correctly. It is still early, but I am confident this was a good choice.

    FPM was the property manager for the house we rent. They were helpful in getting us into a place with our unique circumstances -- not insane circumstances, but not vanilla either. We enjoyed working with them.
  • Susan M. Aug 1, 2016

    I just moved in at the end of May. Had some small issues that needed taken care of in the condo, and Al was very prompt at getting them taken care of. He is also very friendly and communicates well when I have questions. So glad I rented here!

    I needed to vacate my home and move across the country for a new job and was wondering to sell or rent out the house. After deciding to rent it, I interviewed many real estate management companies and FPM impressed me the most. They have a simple business model and were able to find a tenant within a week! I would highly recommend this company to manage your real estate property.

    This was one of my first experiences renting a home and I was extremely happy with the process from start to move in. My contacts were very professional and were constantly communicating with me to assure the process went smoothly. I will definitely look to rent through Fundamental Property Management again!
