Dear Keely,

Eric's answer is most accurate here, and he does not mention that you might be able to combine units (depending on the affordability of such an option) to create the type of 3BR (or more) space that you're looking for.

Given this and some of your previous and recent posts, I think that you might want to consider working with a real estate agent and having them do some of your property search "leg work" for you. You can very easily set up automated email-based searches that will send you any property results that match up to your specific search criteria.

If you do not yet have a real estate agent, then you should know before you commit to working with someone specific who replies to you here that generally speaking (with some possible exceptions) the agent who walks in with you to see any property for the first time will "by default" become you real estate agent (at least for that property)- unless you have a written agreement with a different agent who you have already designated as your real estate agent.

If that is the case (you've already signed an agreement with an agent to represent you) and you'd like to continue to work with your own designated agent, then you should contact your agent to arrange a showing/viewing of any property for you.

Again if you do not yet have a real estate agent- I would suggest speaking with multiple agents before you make a choice on whom you'd like to work with, and I would not necessarily rule out people who have responded to your request here. These agents tend to be pretty technologically up to date (compared to the vast majority of agents), and as a result they can often respond to requests more quickly.

I have also included some links on how to choose a Realtor if you are just starting out whether you are buying or selling (or both).

Let me know if you have any questions or if you need additional assistance. Good luck.

I cannot say for sure if there are any 3 bedroom units in this building. In the past 4 years only 1 and 2 bedrooms have been listed on the MLS. However, a 3 bedroom could exist.

If you would like to find a 3-bedroom in this popular part of West Town, feel free to search my website or give me a call to set up a search of available properties for you.

Best of luck!

Dear Keely:

My name is Maria Clark and I specialized in residential rentals primarily 2-4 flat renovation. Currently, I have 4 three bedroom units in the Wicker Park / Bucktown Area for rent. We are also renting with option to buy. If you would like more information on the units mentioned, kindly email me at or call me direct at 312 953 4484. My web site has a single family home that is listed for sale. This SFH in the tail end of Lakeview / Roscoe Village is on a dead end street and also is available for rent with option to buy. As well, I have three other homes on the same block that I have listed for sale and will post them today on my site and MLS. The 2 out of three in this area are near completion. I will be in Lakeview / Roscoe Village for a 2pm appointment, if you would like to come and walk thru these units kindly call me at 312 953 4484.

Thank you,
Maria Clark
