We understand that some of the challenges faced by international students coming to Chicago are unique, and have reached out to a few current PPM residents to share their stories about coming to Chicago and making a home with PPM. 

First up, we’d like to introduce you to Uday. Uday is originally from India and lives in one of our apartment buildings in Lakeview. Here is his story:
“Chicago is truly a land of dreams. I have been living here for the past 8 months.
Most of the international students like me would come here to do either MS or MBA in reputed colleges. Studying here is an amazing experience altogether. It is much more exciting than I expected! Orientations and networking sessions with alumni have become a part of my everyday life. What’s amazed me is that in addition to the regular course work, we have different events and classes.
Being an international student, there were a lot of barriers to confront.
I had to find housing, settle down, find roommates, get the utilities fixed and do everything by myself. When I was searching for housing in Chicago , I didn’t know how to start. I just Googled and found one of the apartment finders where I paid a $1,000 as advance. The next day when I went to their office to sign lease and they told me that some other apartment finder had already leased it. It took nearly one month to get my money back.
Then, somehow I found PPM and explained the whole story to them. They assured me that unlike brokers, PPM owns their buildings and their agents know if they are available or booked at any point. I was also happy to know that most of the utilities are free! I also connected with PPM through Facebook and got a chance to look at their resident programs. With PPM it was so easy to get real reviews from people and decide on a safe, affordable apartment in Chicago.”
Thanks to Uday for sharing his story with us!
