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.

I am president of our family owned heating and air conditioning company in Schaumburg Il. It is Ray's HVAC and 61 years in business. I am a member of the

Why William Harty chose Rogers Park

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.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this apartment with two friends, one from Scotland and another from Italy. We found it clean and comfortable. We would stay here again if we are in the area. The only problem was of our own making and our own miscalculation: we had to go to downtown Chicago every day, and the trip was longer than we thought.

Owner's Response: The Sky View Condo is an amazing apartment. As it is on the 3rd floor you are up and away from it all. It gets an amazing amount of light because of the fact. We do also offer our Tree Top Condo on the 2nd floor. It is the exact lay out. Then we have our Garden Condo which is 2 bed room and 2 bath. This one is on the ground floor. Residence on the Avenue is in a beautiful neighborhood and close walking distance to public transport. We look forward to having you as our guests. Kind Regards, William Harty, Proprieter,

So glad we found this place.

My family of five stayed at this well appointed apartment for five days recently. Though it is on the top floor, the three flights of stairs presented no issues. The unit is spacious as listed and well supplied with necessities and amenities. We did opt for the alley accessed, garaged parking for a reasonable, additional fee as street parking was problematic. On site property manager Ross was friendly, most welcoming and explained the offerings of the unit and the surroundings well. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on our next trip to this area. Thanks William and Ross!

The property was ideal for our "reunion". The group was celebrating our 50 yr graduation from NU.

  • 5 of 5

The gathering areas were excellent--open, comfortable. The three bedrooms and the two air inflatable units were appropriate. The unit is located on the top floor. The climb up the stairs was troublesome for a couple, but we knew ahead that this was the case. It was fine once we were settled for the four day weekend. The location, and the travel to Evanston was fine. One day a friend and I walked to campus along Ridge Road. We ate one evening on Howard street. The property manager was helpful. Parking was only a problem for some on Friday evening. It was enjoyable for our group, much time to relax and catch up as well as attend many functions on the Northwestern campus. Several in our group "ubered" within minutes of their call.
