Started in 1989, Matt Alex started the Indo-Pak Basketball Tournament in Chicago, as a response to the need for a quality, competitive and respectable basketball tournament catering to the Indian and Pakistani demographic. Over the years, it has grown much larger than some might have expected, with people traveling from all over the US and Canada to play in the Chicago Invitational, as well as satellite tournaments being held in other cities!

"As a new business owner I found that credit card processors can be one of the most deceiving people to deal with. I switched processors three times in search of rates that were reasonable and competitive without the hidden fees. Finally I found Merchant Giving Project. At first I was reluctant to change processors as I have heard it all in terms of false promises and just plain lies. Eventually I came around and haven't regretted it one bit! I love that a portion of my fees goes to charity, but most of all I love having one point of contact for all my questions regarding any credit card processing fees. Doug explained every question I had and even took the time to set up my machine. Because of this straight-forward approach I will be a merchant giving business for life."

Elite's commitment has always been to seek out the absolute best income producing real estate opportunities in world-class cities such as Chicago, where housing demand, rent to price ratios are high and jobs are plentiful. Through trial and error they have learned like any business what works and what doesn’t. What areas are most desirable for tenants, what do tenants prefer to have in their properties to keep them rented and where can they find consistent inventory. Chicago, IL is the 3rd largest city in the United States and it creates a very favorable market for landlords to own rental properties since a large part of the City rents. Check out their team!
