JVM Realty Adds Romeoville Apartments to Portfolio

JVM Realty Corp. has acquired Seasons at Romeoville, a 240-unit luxury apartment community in the Chicago suburb of Romeoville, IL, from Fiduciary Real Estate Development, Inc. for an undisclosed sum. JVM will rename the apartment community The Bluffs. 

“We are thrilled to add another best-in-class investment opportunity to our growing portfolio,” said Jay Madary, president and CEO of JVM Realty Corp. “The combination of luxury, style and convenience this property provides, along with JVM’s award-winning management team delivering a superior resident experience, positions the property to perform at a high level for years to come.” 

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Advisory team representing the seller was led by senior director Wick Kirby, director Amanda Friant and senior director Kevin Girard. 

Located at 501 S. Weber Rd. in Romeoville, The Bluffs was built in 2021 and offers layouts ranging from junior one-bedrooms to three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment homes.
