"Common took over management of my building in Chicago from another company and the transition was very smooth and easy. I felt they were more attentive to the needs of residents and took quick action whenever there were any issues. Communication was very regular and responsive. It's a wonderful thing to have all of your utilities bundled together with your rent - cuts down on remembering what to pay and when. Also the amenities are great - gym, common area (with shuffleboard, bar area and TV for hosting gatherings), dishwasher and washer/dryer in unit. Even at the small size, it's got everything I need within the space and it's helped me to Marie Kondo my way into more minimal living. I'd recommend Common properties to others in the future."

"Great experience so far. I just moved to Chicago alone for a new job and had nothing but a few clothes. Common appealed to me instantly because of the fair cost for rent, which includes heat, wifi, cable, and weekly professional cleaning; the location of the property within the neighborhood I wanted to live in; the close proximity to transit lines; full furnishings and interior design that matches my personal style; and the in suite washer and dryer. Also, having suite mates was a positive for me as I was able to meet people right away. Move in was super easy and the Common service team has been very supportive and easy to talk to. I've lived in various conditions in the UK, EU and all over the US and I would definitely recommend Common as a super convenient and comfortable option, especially for those just moving to the city"

"I recently moved back to Chicago after being away for four years, I wanted to live in the city, but find something ideal for my lifestyle being a minimalist, I didn't want to buy any furniture, I wanted a location with easy access to transit to the loop, safe neighborhood and within a reasonable cost. Common was IT for me! I started correspondence after inquiring and emails back and forth was effortless and timely. I moved in swiftly, the facilities are amazing and the neighborhood is perfect, I am literally 25mins from Chicago Loop and the ease of having everything I need included in my membership is a no brainer. I highly recommend Common Living!"
