If you have a second or third home in Chicago, or just want to make money from your property while you are away working or on a long vacation, putting it on Airbnb makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately for many homeowners, being there to manage the property and organise check ins/ outs and keep the place tidy and clean is not possible – this is where an Airbnb property management company comes in. Short term rental management takes the hassle out of putting your home on Airbnb, meaning you just have to sit back and collect the income. It’s worth remembering that quality management companies will also put your property on and for a better outreach. Here are three of the best Airbnb management companies in Chicago.

Hosty Co

Hosty Co is a real estate investment firm that aims to help people who want to Airbnb their home but find it too time consuming or difficult to maximise profitability. The company has a wealth of knowledge and is a one-stop shop for pricing, design, pricing, listing and consulting. Your property will be professionally photographed and can be put on a number of home sharing platforms, with a focus on search engine optimization and marketing. The company says it has hosted more than 3,000 guests and has a rigorous screening system to ensure the right people are staying in your home.

Chicago Residence Club

The USP of Chicago Residence Club is giving homeowners a personal, boutique service when renting out their property on Airbnb. The company is family-owned and based in Chicago, so they know the city and its housing and rental market inside out. The company aims to give your rental a white glove service notmally reserved for five-star hotels, treating it to professional cleans between each stay and deep-cleans quarterly. There is also guest vetting technology and strict house rules to ensure the property is kept in perfect shape. The company also offers design services and listing optimisation for the best profits.


Guestable is a well-known name in Airbnb property management in Chicago, bringing hospitality services suitable for the world’s top hotels and resorts and applying them to premium Airbnb listings. The company can take over everything when it comes to short term Airbnb rentals, with specialist divisions and leaders in hospitality who are trained to maximise the profit on a rental property. This includes everything from deep professional cleaning to making guests feel welcome, just as they would expect in high end hotels.

This level of detail, it says, ensures top ratings and the best rental income.
