Our History

Our History

Nelly Corporation was created in 1996. It was originally created as a real estate management company for our 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.  And we are now happy to announce that Lakeside Mortgage is a division of Homeside Financial, LLC - a national mortgage lender with special and unique loan programs for first time home buyers all the way to the most seasoned and experienced real estate investors. 

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.  
 
Each of our divisions has separate and dedicated managers who specialize in their respective fields.  And when our customers and clients need our help we can coordinate each team to do their part.  The end result is that we surround our customer and clients with a team of professionals that can create a more efficient and coordinated transaction.
