What Makes Us Unique


Who is OPAR?

We are a full service brokerage offering homes for lease and sale, as well as property management services.

We lease and property manage over 1,000 homes throughout the Chicago-land area and our approach to managing properties is as unique as our commitment to redeveloping them: our residents are treated with dignity, while neighbors are treated with respect.

Our Leasing Consultants offer quality insight into each home and are always available to you as you move through the rental process. Prior to moving into one of our rental homes, each resident is assigned to an OPAR Property Manager who demonstrates the how-tos of basic home maintenance from changing furnace filters to doing lawn care.
