$1000 Rehabilitated felon in need of housing (NW suburbs)

available jan 22


I am a 51 year old, recovering addict, 30 months sober, looking for a rental unit. I currently work three jobs, one full time for two years and two part time for 10 months, and all three with excellent referrals. I have been working very hard to right my ship and making the most of every opportunity that I am blessed with. I have been renting at an extended stay place, basically a motel room, for quite some time and have never paid late and the manager would attest to that. The room I have is very comfortable minus the luxury of a kitchen which I would love to have again.

I lived the first 45 years of my life with little trouble, 10 of them as a single father raising three kids who are now on there own and doing well, and held the same job for 18 years. What derailed my life was losing my parents 6 days apart, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve, and then the company I worked for was sold and as the top paid guy I was quickly replaced with someone much younger willing to work for much less and laid off. Not an excuse for the path I took from there but a reason maybe.

Looking for something long term as I am trying hard to bring stability back to my life. Open to location. Would even be willing to put some work into a place if it meant having somewhere nice and clean to live.

I am currently paying $1,000 per month and would need to keep it under that.

So please if your looking for a good solid tenant who can give you lots of great references, has a descent credit score, and can look past some mistakes made in the past contact me.
