We are Fun
We know life shouldn’t be taken too seriously all the time. That’s why “fun” is a top priority for us. PPM hosts a variety of events throughout the year from summer pool parties, free breakfasts, and dinners in the lobbies, to BBQs, wine and cheese parties, mixology classes, and more. Being a PPM renter means you’re a part of our community, and we love providing opportunities for you to connect with your neighbors, and with us.
We are Social
It’s easy to stay up-to-date with the latest PPM news by following us on social media. We provide all the latest updates on social media, and we enjoy making connections with our residents. Find us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Youtube, and Pinterest. Don’t forget to follow our apartment tips page, @theapartmentdish on Instagram, for apartment decor help, cleaning hacks, recipes, and more.
We are Passionate
We are passionate about providing top-notch service to all of our residents. Our staff goes above and beyond every day to create the optimal customer relationships. Many of our buildings include on-site management offices where our Customer Service Managers work to make sure your experience is perfect.
We are Green
We love our planet, and we’re 100% committed to green living. At the end of 2012, we went paperless. Our regular communications with residents are all done digitally to reduce waste created by traditional billing statements, fliers, and letters. PPM encourages our residents to recycle. We provide the proper containers to make the process easy. And, we are also big proponents of bike transportation, so we offer additional bike storage at most of our buildings.
We are Charitable
PPM makes an effort to “do good” as often as possible, and we’re always looking for ways to give back to our community. Throughout each year, we provide our residents with opportunities to help us make a difference in people’s lives. A few of the local organizations we work with include Lakeview Pantry, Chicago Public Schools, the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago, and the American Red Cross, along with many others. We’re proud to share that as a result of our food drives, clothing, and household donations, and overall support of local charities, we’ve built a strong reputation for being a company who cares.
We Love Pets
In order for your apartment to really feel like home, we know your pet has to love it, too. That’s why pride ourselves on being a pet-friendly company. PPM’s buildings are home to cats and dogs of many kinds. Several of our buildings have a private dog park, which makes a quick pop outdoors with your pup much easier on cold days and nights. We love apartment pets so much, we don’t require an extra deposit or pet fee at any of our buildings. As a PPM resident, you’ll have the chance to enter in the pet contests we hold throughout the year.
PPM has over 3,700 apartments to choose from in four of Chicago’s most desirable neighborhoods: Lakeview, Lincoln Park, River North and the Gold Coast. Our buildings are close to the finest bars, restaurants, entertainment and nightlife in the city. Not only are our buildings right in the middle of Chicago’s most vibrant and lively neighborhoods but they all have top Walk Scores and Transit Scores. Our locations make city life exciting, enjoyable and convenient. Fun is at your fingertips and you will be able to afford it.
PPM has created a community of like-minded people who are FUN, SOCIAL, GREEN, PASSIONATE, CHARITABLE AND LOVE PETS. Establishing relationships is important to us. We care about where you live and the quality of your rental experience.
PPM rents entry level to luxury apartments and everything in between. Our buildings offer desirable amenities such as roof top pools and sundecks, fitness rooms, business centers, dog parks, resident lounges, package receiving rooms, indoor parking and more. Each of our buildings has its own unique list of features and perks. Most of our amenities are free and add extra value to the properties.
We have designed our rental process to take the stress out and make it enjoyable. Our professional leasing staff will guide you through the process and help you find your perfect home. We care, that is why we try harder. We know that you have a lot of rental options so we strive to provide the best customer service that is both timely and results driven. You are not just another client to us.
We know you are busy and your time is valuable. That is why we have created a virtual rental experience. From scheduling appointments, to completing an application and paying your rent everything can be done from your cell phone or laptop. You can even submit maintenance requests online and our building staff will gladly assist you in a timely manner.
We are compelled to give back to the community we serve so proudly. Planned Property Management works closely with the Epilepsy Foundation, Chicago Public Schools and the Lakeview Food Pantry to help those in need. Through our philanthropic efforts we have gained added compassion and respect for our fellow Chicagoans that need a helping hand. Giving back is our greatest reward.
My PPM leasing consultant, Bianca, is the best. Her hard work when I moved from Texas, site unseen, was amazing. She was the only leasing agent of numerous companies that was helpful. Every employee at PPM has been great to deal with. This is the only property management company I will ever work with in Chicago.

I absolutely LOVE living at 1049 W. Oakdale! The building is in one of the best locations and our maintenance engineer, Sejad, is incredibly helpful and responsive. Plus, PPM really cares about their residents and what we want. I literally could not have picked a better place to live when I moved to Chicago from Cleveland a few months ago!

"PPM staff makes living here easy and enjoyable. Robert, Barry, and Maritza are always helpful and welcoming. Special thanks to Tiffany for always making us feel right at home and knowing everyone on a first name basis."
"Living at 100 W Chestnut has been nothing short of wonderful. Beautiful neighborhood and nice community. The building and location are fantastic. But what makes this place truly special is the staff. Ella at the front door really really really cares about residents, she made the place feel like home since day 1. Iovi, Ruben, Sedad and Marcel are absolute heroes—whenever something at the apartment needs work, they come solve it the same day, within an hour or two. Dajana is extremely helpful and efficient. She always drops whatever she's doing to help out. Teairia is very kind and always willing to help when looking for something at the package room. Reggie, the new doorman, makes the building feel safe at all times. Moving out I had people over at my place to pick up some furniture—during that time Reggie came along with us to make sure everyone was safe and also gave us a hand moving the heavier stuff. I love this building and would recommend it to anyone."
