We have had such a great experience with GC Realty in the management of our rental property. Transition to them managing the property was easy and straightforward. With us living out of state, GC was a huge help in organizing and coordinating repairs and painting when our previous tenant ended their lease. Communication is always detailed and timely, and their price was competitive. Highly recommend!Apr 7, 2019VerifiedGC Realty & Development LLC's reply
Thank you for sharing your experience and being great to work with. Appreciate your time you took to share.
I just started working with Mark after he replied to my request on Thumbtack. His thoroughness, knowledge and overall demeanor sold me. He will be helping me rent my property, and then if all goes well, GC Realty will be managing my property for me moving forward. Excited to be working with them!Oct 28, 2015Verified
Mark and the entire GC team are outstanding! They manage my rental property and I couldn't be happier! The entire GC team works tirelessly to meet the needs of both me AND my tenant. I would highly recommend Mark Ainley and the GC team for any real estate needs!Apr 1, 2015

GC Realty & Development, LLC has not only assisted me with all of my real estate needs, they also manage multiple investment properties that I own. They handle everything from rent collection to finding the perfect tenants for my properties. By acting as the direct liaison between me and my tenants, I eliminate the headache of everything from late night maintenance phone calls to rent collections. Once a tenant has given notice that they will not be renewing their lease, their Maintenance team goes in and assesses the property and communicates with me what needs to be done to repair/spruce up so that they can once again market and rent the property for the highest price the market can bear. I also work closely with their team on larger scale projects that increase the value of my properties. Here is the suburbs of Chicago, there is only one company I would trust to do all of this for me and that's GC.Jul 30, 2015
