The "BIG FUN" Advertising Campaign.... (On-Going)
After such a positive response to our advertising campaign, we have begun posting our advertisments for those interested in following them. Printing these advertisments in the Daily Illini has been by far the most entertaining aspect of property management. The students have overwhelmingly reported that they have enjoyed the ads, and many have even called to say that they appreciate the work even when they weren't looking for an apartment. We believe that one the reasons for our success with the student population has been their warm response to these ads. The next blurb is currently running in the Daily Illini for our five bedroom townhouse apartment for next August.

“IT’S ONE HUNDRED AND SIX MILES TO CHICAGO…


We’ve got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark, and we’re wearing sunglasses.” “Hit it.” If you can name that movie when you sign this last lease for my very last five-bedroom apartment, I’ll throw in a free parking space with the deal! 211 E. Clark Street in Champaign features security entrance, balcony, large spacious bedrooms, and DSL wiring for only $1,350. Call the Johnster NOW at 384-6930 to schedule your showing before this last one is gone!
