Terrific Tenants Every Time

I wanted to elaborate on my comments since I am so pleased to have found For 2-1/2 years we have used to find the perfect tenants for our in-law apartment. Since the apartment is in our home, on the 3rd floor, and entry is through our home, we are interested in finding tenants who are comfortable with such an arrangement and with whom we are comfortable. has never disappointed us. Each time I post a listing I receive multiple responses, all of whom seem lovely. So far we have had five tenants through and after they have left we continue to correspond with most of them. A few have even returned to stay as our guests in the spare bedroom in our home when they visit the area. was recommended by a friend and I, in turn, recommend it to all of my friends who are needing or letting accommodations. I know that I can rely on to match our apartment with terrific tenants every time.
