“I have been working with Ilija Pod for several years now and he is truly a best in class property manager. His responsiveness and customer centric business practices are second to none. As a Broker, your relationships are your currency and I am very careful with who I refer business to. Ilija has done an excellent job and I highly recommend using Ilija and Horizon Management to anyone who is in need of property management”.

“Horizon Management has successfully managed my Chicago area properties for nearly 20 years. Being an out of town owner I depend on their managers to be my eyes and ears on the property. My Tenants consistently compliment them in their attention to detail. Moreover they are able to effectuate tenant retention and renewals so that my properties consistently achieve maximum NOI.”

“I worked with Ilija and Horizon on a multi-tenant restaurant anchored retail center in Elk Grove Village. Our firm specialized in industrial development but we retained this property as part of a larger development. Ilija and his team were incredibly good in providing us clear direction on how to manage this property, dealing with the tenants and providing accurate and timely cash flow and operating statements. His team really shined during the challenges presented during the Covid lockdowns and without their expertise and excellent management, our outcome on this project would have been much different. They truly were a valuable partner in our success in acquiring, leasing and selling this property.”

“Ilija has done a great job building his company to ensure that all property management needs for any investor type are covered. There is not a project too big or small that they would not be able to handle in our world of CRE.”

“I have worked with Ilija on a few transactions in the past 10 years. I was the leading broker selling the asset and he was the existing manager. On each transaction, he played a key role in identifying the important aspects that benefited both sides in the deal. He has built a great team around him and will be a continued asset for any property owner looking for an experienced manager.”
