About Brian Lindstrom

Owned as a partnership between long time college friends. Both are born and raised in the Chicago area and have been residents of Chicago's north side for over 20 years.

Why Brian Lindstrom chose Oak Park

Commonwealth, Riverview Tavern, Village Tavern are great family friendly bars/restaurants, Piazza Bella and Kitsch'n comprise the some of the long term restaurants that draw people to the neighborhood. Approximately 1 mile west of Wrigely Field.

My wife and I live in Chicago and were doing double bathroom remodeling(May-July) and had to move out during the work so we started looking around at corporate housing in high rises then saw this listing on Damen that fit our needs. We travel extensively and have used many VRBO services as well as most high end hotels around the world. We called the owner and arranged to see the house within 24 hours and signed the lease(very smooth). As our renovations were delayed we were lucky enough to be able to extend. Owner is very easy to deal with and any issues were addressed within 24 hours. The neighborhood(Roscoe Village) is great and the house allowed well trained dogs and we have two Golden Retrievers that are our kids. The house has a back yard and garage both very usable as well as a recently remodeled kitchen. Could use a few more lamps inside and a new ceiling fan in the family room(not a big deal)
The house is a 5 minute walk to the Brown line(20 min to loop) and near Wriggly(152 bus 7 min ride),night life and restaurants. Not really a need for a car as you can use UBER for taxies or Peapod or Instacart for grocery delivery’s or walk the ½ mile to the 2 grocery stores. The area is very family friendly neighborhood. There are parks for kids and dogs walking distance.
Owner was great and came the first night to check us in and make sure were able to find everything and set up the Wi-Fi as well as meet our dogs. This is a great house for longer term stays like ours and be sure to check out Turquoise Café on Roscoe.

Owner's Response: It was great having you, your wife and your two super sweet doggies stay at our property. Thanks for the notes on lighting and ceiling fan. I will put those on our list for improvements to do. I always appreciate feedback about how to improve the guests experience at all of my rental properties.

This listing does not accurately describe the property

We rented this apt for 2 months while our home was being fixed due to water damage. Despite the fact that our insurance company was paying a premium for a fully furnished apt. this property was minimally furnished and very shabby (not shabby chic, either!). Ask for current photos as the pics in this listing don't show what the space looks like now.
The landlord promised to fix many things and did not follow thru. The stairs are rickety and the railing is loose. Several kitchen cabinets do not have doors. Most rooms do not have functioning doorknobs and have tape over the locks. Baseboards are missing throughout the house. When it snowed he did not shovel until very late in the day and only after repeated phone calls.
After 2 weeks he finally installed one smoke detector even though an apt with 3 bedrooms should have a minimum of 2. This is a violation of city code.
He cancelled HBO service and despite the fact that we offered to pay he did not respond.
The area is very nice and safe but would not recommend that you stay here due to the condition of the apt and the unresponsiveness of the owner.

Owner's Response: I appreciate feedback whether positive or negative to help improve the travelers and guests experience at all properties that I have. The guest was there due to frozen/burst pipes in her home and attempting to book the reservation from long distance before returning to Chicago. I had told her of this home and her need was for an immediate move in upon her return. I had told her that we were just finishing up the rehab of the kitchen and that her desired move in date would be cutting it close for my contractors to complete the job. I felt the expectation was set in that discussion but sometimes you just can’t please people. I would not consider renting to this person in the future. On the day of her move in we had final items getting finished and she was informed earlier in the day that it would be best to come by after 5 that day to allow my crew to complete items prior to her arrival. Instead she came by with 2 other friends asking questions to my contractors. This made it very difficult to work around them as there were about 5 people either cleaning or doing final repair items. The items that she noted were going to be fixed but 2 weeks after agreeing to the lease she cancelled the lease of which I was more than happy to agree. The guest really did not complain about any of the issues she notes during her stay with the exception of the size of the bedrooms which she clearly had a chance to see and/or measure prior to agreeing to lease the home. This was the first person we have rented the home to and have since found renters and guests that are enjoying their stay there. She also did not mention that she had a dog and very few places were willing to rent to her.
All items have been repaired and addressed. Pictures are accurate on the site with current furniture set up.
