I founded Magellen Properties, Inc. in 1988 as a management vehicle through which I manage apartment buildings in DuPage County and the Rogers Park community of Chicago. I came up with my company name by coupling my initials (MAG) with my mother’s first name (Ellen). (My mother passed away in 1988 and managed these family owned properties before I got involved). At Magellen Properties we closely manage our buildings, with goal towards long-term ownership of well-managed properties in desirable and affordable locations. Our approach towards management is welcoming, sincere and is acknowledged by the wonderful repertoire that we have established with our residents. There are strong benefits in renting from someone who takes a "pride in ownership" approach - and we welcome you to our website and hope you consider making one of our apartments your future home.
