Apartments for Rent!

Every once in a while, we get an unsolicited review that we must share with the world. We have our problems with the way Yelp’s policies penalize merchants, and the way “more senior” (meaning “older”) reviewers have their reviews taken off the pages, because they are not regular reviewers – and so haven’t built up a following or have lots of “friends”. But in spite of these complaints on our side, it’s nice to see an excellent review come in.

Consider this review from 12/12/11 written by “Anna J.” in New York, NY. It’s a 5-Star review! apartment rentals

 I had a great experience with Rent-Direct. As someone who had never gone through the process of finding an apartment in New York, but had heard horror stories about brokers and their fees, I was excited to try out after hearing about it from a friend.

The experience of finding an apartment in the city can be overwhelming but Rent-Direct made it as easy as it can be. Whenever I emailed the company with questions regarding available rentals, someone replied within hours – sometimes in as little as a few minutes (even on weekends). The staff was very curteous and helpful.

New no-fee rentals populate your inbox almost every day – and the site gives you a ton of information about each listing including how much the rent is, who the management company is, their contact information, what paperwork the application requires, and whether pets are allowed. Additionally (and this is a huge plus), photos are almost always included.

The fee that you pay to join the site is paltry compared to the cost of a broker. Moreover, the site offers almost the same thing as a broker – the new listings that come up are immediately sent to your email, and all of the information that you could want about the apartment on paper is at your fingertips.

We are all busy in the city and don’t have a lot of time to parse through the internet looking for suitable listings. Rent-Direct has a great selection of apartments and definitely helped me to find a new home with as little stress as possible.

“Anna J.” – we thank you for your kind words. And they’re all true, too!
