About William Harty

One of our other passions is music. I was involved with the Guardsmen Drum and Bugle Corps for 26 years, as a marching member for 10 years and 16 as a choreographer and director. My whole family was involved in one way or another. My sister Celeste and Paul were members while sisters Claudia and Regina, followed and helped with management. My father was very active as director and my mother sewed flags and followed us every where.

My son has followed in music and was a member of the Green Thunder Percussion Ensemble and has been taking piano lessons for 15 years.

I am currently president of Ray's Hvac, a heating and air conditioning company that my father Ray started in 1956. My mother and brother Paul work for the company as well.

My son and I have 3 dogs: Minnie Pearl, a Jack Russell/Pomeranian, Magnolia, a Fox Terrier, and Mr. Conrad, a Border Collie. Both Minnie Pearl and Mr. Conrad were rescued from visits to Ireland.

We are involved along with my sister Claudia with Young at Hearts, a senior pet rescue and adoption organization. My son also volunteers at the Animal Care League of Oak Park.

My son and I are parishioners at St. John the Baptist in Winfield, and I am also a member of the Human Rights Campaign.

About Us

William Harty, owner

Being from Chicago, I always had a vision of owning a grand 4 flat in Rogers Park, Residence on the Avenue. The architecture was very different from other areas in the city.

As a young man, and even now, I love the drive north from the city up Lake Shore Drive and continuing on to the historic Sheridan Road.

The building was purchased in 2003, and in 2006 we did a major rehab. After doing full time rentals, we decided to do vacation rentals in two of the condos. We felt some thing this great should be shared.

What makes this condo unique

This condo because it is on the top floor is amazing on a sunny day. The grand open floor plan is great for gatherings. Even if you are working away in this great kitchen you can enjoy the rest of you family or friends at the granite breakfast bar. The master bath is also a great feature of this condo with the whirlpool and separate shower.

Enthusiastic with some suggestions

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at William's Rogers Park property very much. We do have a few suggestions that we believe would make the property even more ideal:

1. The drains in the master-bath sink could use a good cleaning. The sinks drain very slowly.

2. The door hinges for the hall bathroom are in serious need of oiling. They are very noisy, especially in the middle of the night.

3. As seniors, we would have appreciated grab bars in the bathrooms.

4. The coffee drinkers in the group would have liked more large mugs.

5. Have you ever thought about installing ceiling fans, especially in the bedrooms?

Finally, we want to express our appreciation for Ross's assistance during our stay. He was helpful but not intrusive, and very friendly.

Once again, we enjoyed our stay very much. Allan Kent

Summer stay to visit Northwestern University

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our stay and I have to say, we enjoyed it very much! We loved the apartment and the neighborhood and were able to easily walk to the drug store, the grocery store and it was a short drive to the university. The unit was beautiful and had plenty of space for our family and we cooked many of our meals here, even though there are restaurants to be enjoyed nearby. We would definitely stay again.

Luxury near the heart of Chicago

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very gracious, making sure all questions were answered timely before the trip and giving a full introduction to the neighborhood and apartment upon arrival. The location was very convenient and it was great to have a secure place to park the minivan we rented to take our three kids the long haul from Ohio to Chicago. The drive through the city toward neighborhood night was amazing and got the kids excited to be in the big city. The well furnished apartment made us all feel right at home. Everything we needed was provided including extra blankets and an air bed. It was really an excellent choice and I'm glad it was available for out Memorial Day stay! Definitely check it out if needeing a spacious space near the heart of the city!
