Do I have to be present to rent an apartment?
It is possible for you to rent an apartment and not be physically present. Here is the procedure we will use in this scenario:
- We will have an in-depth conversation regarding your search criteria in which we will discuss your specific housing needs.
- Our agent will run a search for active property that matches your needs. You can also browse our website database while the agent searches for you.
- We will email you listings that match your criteria and discuss the particulars of each listing. In many cases we have photographs of the unit.

The landlord also reserves the right to contact the personal reference you supply on the Rental Application.…
