My son just finished his first year with a lease at 98 W Cherry, Normal with Young America and we found them to be a great company! Concerns were addressed. Highly recommend Young America!! Made our first renting experience a positive one!!

"The experience has been top notch... their customer service and responsiveness is phenomenal."

I own a business that serves Young America Realty. I do a substantial business commercially overall and Young America has been awesome as a customer. I was originally contacted by [the Maintenance Supervisor] to inquire about our service and we set a meet. From there the experience has been top notch... their customer service and responsiveness is phenomenal. As a vendor, I appreciate that.

"[Their staff] was great to deal with."

We came to visit the units prior daughter starting school. I drove my truck off of road on retaining wall area. Yes it was damaged but YA realty came out and stayed with me. They called their towing company and took care of all cost. My daughter was able to view units and I caught up to them. [Their staff] was great to deal with. I felt good leaving her, knowing that they help me when we had not rented. We did end up leasing a unit and the process was easy quick. Thank you.

"Young America Realty has been such a positive experience for [my son]."

Young America Realty has been such a positive experience for [my son]. It has helped increase his knowledge about investing in real estate, as well as provided great sales experience that will take him far into the future. Networking with others has been a great benefit too!

"Great company to work for!"

My son works for Young America and his experience has given him an exponential amount of skills. That will help him to work in the business field after graduation!! Great company to work for!
