Bil-Mar Management is focused on the management of multi-family residential and commercial properties on the north side of Chicago. Martha and Bill Moran opened their first office on Armitage Avenue in the mid 1970’s and from the beginning built their business with the simple philosophy that both staff and tenants are important to the company. Through the years the Moran’s have been in real estate sales and development but eventually elected to concentrate on property management. Bil-Mar Management manages only properties in which its principals have a significant investment, thus avoiding potential conflict of interest.
Bil-Mar has an experienced staff that is dedicated to quick responses to the needs of current tenants and inquiries from prospective tenants. Tenants are viewed as invaluable partners that directly contribute to the quality of life in our buildings and the continued success of Bil-Mar. Inquiries from prospective tenants are handled in an efficient and courteous manner and are thoroughly investigated. Our goal is to place qualified residents in our properties who will be good neighbors to our existing tenants.
