MLC PROPERTIES and MANAGEMENT promise its property owners to provide high quality management services thus maximizing the property owner’s cash flow. MLC manages all types of real estate.

Being property owners themselves (see “Our Owner” tab) of several properties throughout the city of Chicago and its suburbs, MLC understands what it takes to own and manage property. MLC’s philosophy is simple “taking care of their tenants” (customers).

A happy and satisfied tenant produces a profitable property. We are very well known as a “hands on company”.

What this means is that our well trained staff is very much involved with the property and its tenants. We stress communication between tenants and management. Our office staff manages the leasing, work orders, work schedules, accounting and over all communication with the tenants.

Our software program is one of the most advanced on the market today. Our very talented field staff manages all the physical aspects of the property.

Our field staff is talented in all trades which keeps the property owners cost down.

Because of our years of experience we can represent the property owners in dealing with the city, inspections/inspectors, building court and administration hearings.

Our knowledge can suggest to the property owner on what capital improvements should be made to the property. MLC is an experienced buyer of distressed property and will work closely as a “receiver” with financial institutions to maintain their property and protecting their asset.
