The Deed: Chicago is a reality TV show that premiered on CNBC in March 2017. The show stars real estate mogul Sean Conlon, who is known for his expertise in buying and flipping properties in Chicago. In The Deed: Chicago, Conlon funds struggling real estate projects and works with the investors and developers to turn the properties into profitable investments. The show was a spin-off of Conlon's first show, The Deed, which aired on CNBC in 2016.

Each episode of The Deed: Chicago features a different property and its investors struggling to make a profit from the project. Conlon invests his own money into the properties and becomes a partner with the investors for the duration of the project. He shares his expertise and provides guidance on the renovations and marketing strategies needed to turn the property into a profitable investment. Conlon is passionate about helping people become successful in the real estate business and often shares tips and advice for aspiring investors.

The show is set in Chicago, Illinois, and showcases some of the city's most unique and historic neighborhoods. Conlon takes viewers on a tour of each property, pointing out its strengths and weaknesses, and highlighting potential growth opportunities. Throughout the episodes, viewers are given insight into the real estate market in Chicago and the challenges that investors face when trying to flip properties in the city.

One of the most exciting aspects of The Deed: Chicago is the transformations that the properties undergo throughout the episodes. From dilapidated buildings to stunning homes and business spaces, the transformations are impressive and inspiring. Conlon works closely with the developers, contractors, and designers to ensure that each property is transformed to its full potential. He often provides his own input on design choices and marketing strategies to make sure that each property stands out in the competitive Chicago real estate market.

The show's format is similar to other real estate reality shows, but with a twist. Instead of just following real estate agents as they navigate the market, The Deed: Chicago focuses on the investment side of the business. Each episode provides valuable lessons for those looking to invest in real estate, including how to identify a good investment, how to work with partners, how to manage finances, and how to navigate the real estate market.

Another highlight of the show is Conlon's personality. He is charismatic, knowledgeable, and passionate about real estate, and his energy is infectious. He has a no-nonsense approach to investing and is not afraid to make tough decisions when necessary. He is also willing to share his mistakes and failures in the real estate business, which makes him relatable to viewers who may be struggling to find success in the industry.

In addition to the main focus on real estate investing, The Deed: Chicago also touches on social and personal issues. For example, in one episode, Conlon works with a developer who is struggling with addiction and helps him get back on track with his life and business. In another episode, Conlon works with a developer and his daughter to create a restaurant that will not only be profitable but will also bring the community together. These personal stories add a human element to the show and make it more relatable and engaging to viewers.

Overall, The Deed: Chicago is an exciting and informative show that provides valuable insights into the real estate industry. Whether you are an aspiring investor or just a fan of real estate reality shows, this series offers entertainment, education, and inspiration. Conlon's expertise and personality make him the perfect host, and the transformations of the properties are truly impressive. If you are looking for a show that combines real estate investing, personal stories, and stunning transformations, The Deed: Chicago is a must-watch.
