Our History

Nelly Corporation was created in 1996. It was originally created as a real estate management company for one family's private real estate portfolio. Since that time Nelly Corporation has grown to be one of Chicago's best and most respected real estate management and development companies. In 2017 we consolidated our real estate management and sales divisions changed our name NellyCorp Realty.

In 1996 we also created Lakeside Mortgage and Loan Corporation. Lakeside Mortgage is one of Illinois' premier mortgage companies. Lakeside Mortgage can provide purchase money residential mortgages and refinances for residential and commercial real estate.

In 2008 we created The Lakeside Insurance Group. Our insurance company can provide personal and business insurance products through one of the best and most respected insurance companies in the country - Farmers Insurance and more.
