The Homestead Story

Since its inception, The Homestead Group has been the industry leader in apartment leasing in the Chicago metropolitan area.

About The Homestead Group

The Homestead Group was founded upon one simple principle: to provide an easy and effortless platform that matches the very best landlords with the very best tenants. A boutique brokerage, we are committed to excellence, and this commitment is manifested in the passion that our team members exhibit in their daily pursuits.

Our Managing Broker, Martin Kerpel, brings a multitude of talent that enhances the Homestead rental experience from the vantage point of both landlords and tenants. In addition to being a past president of the Lincoln Park Builders of Chicago, he is currently a Director of the Neighborhood Building Owners Alliance as well as a member of the Government Affairs Committee of the Chicago Association of Realtors.

Homestead is the best! In a pinch, they were able to find exactly what I was looking for in an apartment in Wicker Park within a week.

I will only be using Homestead from now on.
