What it’s Like to Work With Us

“I am moving from the west coast, and trying to search for good apartments in Chicago was becoming incredibly stressful. I came across Hart Turner and on a whim reached out not expecting much. Hart immediately responded and hopped on a phone call with me so that he could understand what my needs and wants were. An hour later I had a comprehensive list of apartments that all hit home. After I settled on one, Hart had a virtual tour set up for me with the building.  He even joined with me as well to answer any questions I may have had. Hart made this process easier than I could have thought possible, it was like working with a good friend. Looking forward to working with him again in the future.”

We’ve Reimagined the Chicago Apartment Search

Hotspot plays matchmaker between you and the thousands of apartments in downtown Chicago. We do this with expertise, heart, and a data-backed process that works. Honest and talented, our team of leasing agents loves what we do and the people we get to work with.

Our Story

Meet Brett and Dorothy Moody, the founders of Hotspot Apartment Rentals.

After years of working in the Chicago leasing market, Dorothy knew there was a better way. She wanted to be a part of a leasing agency that offered her a purpose and still had a team culture. An encouraging Brett (then boyfriend, and now promoted to husband) suggested she stop trying to find it and build it herself instead.

Dorothy did just that, and soon enough Brett joined in the fun. Since 2012, they’ve worked side by side, building the company they dreamed was possible – Hotspot Apartment Rentals.

Our Secret

So what’s their secret? “It’s the people,” Dorothy says. “Our team is our family. We support, teach, and encourage them, and we all want the best for each other.”

Brett adds, “Our focus is on creating an incredible experience for our team, and they in turn, create an incredible experience for our customers. At its core, Hotspot is in the business of connection. We genuinely care about our team and our customers. Seeing what we’ve built – a company that puts people first – means everything to us.”

Our Commitment to You

Put your trust in us, and we’ll be your greatest advocate in finding an apartment you’ll love.

Our matchmaking process involves listening and asking questions that get to the heart of what’s important to you. And then the magic begins – of the thousands of apartments for rent in Chicago, we pinpoint the few that check all the right boxes. Together, we’ll take tours, balance the pros and cons, and narrow down the short-list to find “the one!”
