How are rental agents paid?

We do not charge an application fee or for a credit report!

Our fee is equal to one month’s rent, depending on the landlord’s agreement with the broker.

  •  Most apartments require that tenant pays fee.

  •  With some apartments, the landlord pays entire fee.

We will notify you what the Rental Fee will be prior to your inspection of the apartment.
