•Experience in Short Sales/Foreclosures
•Managing & Building Investor Portfolios
•Investment Property

Residential Single Family:

My residential single family services connect buyers with sellers every day, and I do it with professionalism and a total dedication to my clients.


While condominiums are residential, they’re a very different market focus, and I am an expert in evaluating condos and helping buyers and sellers to cope with the special financing and homeowner concerns for this property type.


Investors are great clients for me. Multi–family properties are a very unique market. The detailed return on investment and valuation calculations investors need to evaluate properties for rental are second nature to me.


Whether it’s a shopping mall, a small office building or a restaurant space, I’m your commercial property specialist. Contact me for your commercial property needs in the Chicago real estate markets.

Vacant Land:

I am the best at selling land in the Chicago real estate market and recently have broken records for land sales in both Ravenswood and Bucktown.  Land is a very special property class. It’s relatively easy to show a gourmet cook a wonderful commercial kitchen in a home and see their eyes light up. It’s more of a challenge to help a buyer or seller to realize the potential in a piece of land.

I have been blessed to know Peter (Peter Basile Jr.) and take advantage of his services several times over the past decade, from finding and screening tenants to selling my property. His services have never been short of exceptional, even after the sale! He always encourages me to call him anytime if he can help in any way AND HE REALLY MEANS IT! I've taken him up on these offers numerous times when I had problems with tenants or other questions about my rental unit and didn't know where else to turn. He has never failed to respond with utmost alacrity, even after he was no longer affiliated with the company where he helped me find a tenant, and he always gave expert advice.


Last summer, we sold our unit. Peter had a buyer for us immediately (no kidding - it was amazing) and exceeded our expectations in every way.


Look no further for any of your real estate needs. Peter is truly exceptional.

Steve Clarkson Jan 2018 January 8, 2018

Peter is a true professional with a vast wealth of knowledge and experience in the Chicago real estate market. He is thorough and delivers on his commitments.

“I just received a promotion and was asked to move from California to Chicago in less than 3 weeks time. It was already stressful enough having to decide what to take and how to take it, say farewell to my friends and family, and go through all the drastic changes involved with relocating across the country---but to also fly out on a Thursday in order to find a place to live by the time I started work on Monday? I was beyond stressed. I was highly recommended by a few fellow coworkers of mine (who also relocated from CA to IL) to get in touch with Peter at Apartment People. From the first phone call he was extremely attentive and available to all my needs. He was realistic about the situation but was also able to calm me down and assure me he would do his best. Well, to make a long story short he was able to find me the most AMAZING, SPECTACULAR, OVER THE TOP place in what must be record timing: I had a lease and keys in my hands in less than 3 hours!!!! I arrived in Chicago at 4 am, apartment by 2 pm...unbelievable. I can't recommend Peter highly enough. He knew how desperate I was and really made it feel like I was the only client he was working with, which I'm sure isn't the case! Thanks again Peter :)”

Sylvia Q. (Chicago-Lakeview) January 24, 2017

“Peter is a results-oriented realtor who works hard to meet his client's expectations. In working with Peter, we found him to be a good listener, responsive to our preferences, and attentive to our needs. His intimate knowledge of the city of Chicago was a tremendous strength in helping us find the right place to call home. Peter is likeable, friendly, and is the model of real estate professionalism!”

Beth L. (Chicago-Gold Coast)​ January 24, 2017

“I cannot say enough good things about Pete! He has assisted me with renting, buying and selling and has always been extremely helpful and honest. I have always felt that he has had my best interest in mind.”

Amy S. (Chicago)​ January 24, 2017

“Peter worked vigorously to determine precisely what type of community and household would be most suitable for my family and me. After spending nearly a week showing us compatible properties, he landed us the most amazing home in the North Shore at the best price possible. He delivered the results we were looking for, and we will continue to consult him for his real estate expertise.”

Dr. Tim S. (Chicago’s North Shore) January 24, 2017

“I first met Pete as a rental client, and shortly thereafter I asked him to help me find a condo to purchase. He couldn't have made the process more easy and seamless. As a first-time buyer, with a short window to purchase Pete was there to help throughout the entire deal. His vast network of experts made the process easier than I could have imagined, so take advantage of his recommendations. From Broker, to Inspector, to Lawyers it seems Pete knows everyone in Chicago, and they are there to help make your lives easier. Pete was honest and deeply knowledgeable throughout my condo hunt and we were able to meet my short deadlines and stay in budget. A great experience for a first-time buyer! Thanks Pete!!!”

Laura B. (Chicago-Andersonville & Lakeview) January 24, 2017

“Peter represented us as a buyer's agent in our home purchase last year. This transaction had plenty of ups and downs but Peter was a calming voice of reason and kept things alive with the sellers. His referrals to trusted advisers proved valuable and he went the extra mile with home inspections, financing, and last but not least making sure we were happy and settled in post-transaction. I strongly recommend Peter.”

Daniel S. (Chicago Suburbs-Northbrook)​ January 24, 2017

“Peter has a deep knowledge of the market and a great ability to read the opposing agent. He provided invaluable advice about offering prices and how to handle offers when it came time to sell. To his credit, we were able to sell our condo in 45 days in the fall of 2009 for a price above what we paid for it two and a half years earlier.”

David W. (Chicago-Lincoln Square)​ January 24, 2017

“After walking up to our (roughly) 15th showing as first time home buyers, my wife and I (under the cover of an umbrella) watched Pete Basile hunt in the rain and muddy grass for a key box which would open the door to a condo that all of us knew we weren't likely to be interested in anyway. He said he thought it was important to see however so we could get the most perspective possible on the marketplace. That's when I knew we had a great real estate agent.

If you're looking for a professional who knows Chicago inside and out, is willing to work with you morning til night for as long as it takes, and will fight to help you find the perfect home at the perfect price - then look no further.

Pete is currently assisting us in locating another condo, and I didn't even think twice on who to call when that need arose.”

Matt P. (Chicago-River North) January 24, 2017

“It’s rare that you come across a person like Peter real estate these days. He takes the role of agent to a level you don’t often find. I (we) was particularly impressed by Pete’s knowledge of the city, his ability to navigate our wants/needs narrowing down the properties to view in turn making the day most efficient…and stress-free….fun, actually! That’s something (we) I appreciate knowing the ups and downs of relocation.

Peter is a consummate professional and he hit the nail on the head during our house hunt process. Oh, and he made sure to point out all the best local spots for food and spirits! We already have a few on the list! 

“As an agent, Pete earns my (our) utmost recommendation.” THANK YOU, PETE!”

Lisa G. (Chicago-River North) January 24, 2017

“I first me Peter when my girlfriend was looking to buy a home. He was courteous, understood quickly what her requirements were and wasted no time finding solutions that exceeded her expectations. He was always punctual in answering calls and questions. Soon after I began my own home search. Peter found the perfect home for me within a week and we closed on it 2 weeks later with no issue. Peter walked me through all of the steps to make sure I was covered and protected during the transaction. I highly recommend Peter. You'll feel like his only client as he's available 24/7. If you're looking for your dream home or dream rental, Pete will get it for you. He far surpasses the competition and you'll feel lucky to have him on your team representing you. If not, you'll be looking a long time at the wrong homes, sitting in traffic, and wondering if there's a better way.”

Rich C. (Chicago-Bucktown)​ January 24, 2017

“Peter exemplifies client service, realtor professionalism, and an eye for winning the long game. Working with Peter on our primary residence was an ideal relationship: starting with landing an excellent rental to closing the ideal condo purchase 2 years later every aspect of the relationship put us at ease and exceeded expectation. He was open to showing us and discussing all manner of properties that fit our criteria, steering us gently away from those properties that came with caveats towards those that fit our most important criteria of not only being enjoyable to live but excellent long-term investments for our future.

I was wary of wading into the waters of real estate purchasing in the city of Chicago but working with Peter not only made it possible, but enjoyable. I would (and have personally) recommend Peter (and by extension, his team of real-estate partners) for any real estate questions or transactions you're looking to solve!”

Jonathan E. (Chicago-South Loop)​ January 24, 2017

“Pete is a consummate professional that embraces the concept of client stewardship. His knowledge of the market, attention to detail, focus on the client, and ability to make things happen made him the perfect person for the job. Within the last 8 months, I have utilized Pete for 3 real estate transactions. Upon referral from a highly trusted friend, I first sought Pete's assistance in finding and purchasing a rental property. With his help, I secured the perfect property, and subsequently enlisted Pete to sell my primary residence, which he did in a matter of hours! Pete has a wealth of knowledge and offers assistance and direction far beyond the scope of what other realtors provide. I was so pleased with his results that I also solicited Pete's services to secure a new primary residence. He found me a place that met every single one of my nit-picky requirements, and I love it!

Pete makes himself 100% available to his clients, and has a way of navigating seemingly insurmountable issues with poise, professionalism, and speed. I highly recommend enlisting his services."
