You need FBS. Rentals are what we do. Rentals are all we do. Rentals are who we are in San Diego for more than 4 decades. We currently operate rental properties in 69 zip codes throughout the region. We have become the best center for resources essential to renters by choice as well as independent rental owners. We bring industry Best Practices to both. I appreciate the nearly 10,000 Trulia visitors that keep up with my profile as well as the 50,000 that follow Neil Fjellestad's blog. However, my perspective is only one thing that makes FBS the industry leader it is. Our unsurpassed team, our systematic approach to leasing & rendering service to our renters, our daily incorporating technologies that others are just talking about are all reasons for our leadership. But our leadership only matters when it matters to you. First, visit our website http://www.fbs-pm.com then contact our North County Office. Start by speaking with Pam Neillo. She'll direct you from there. Let me know how you make out. Neil

I agree with the other ads. We don't get paid much for handling rentals. Your best bet is to go to a property management company or craigslist...that sight has the most up to date inventory.

The best place to search rentals is http://www.craigslist.com. This is where most Property Management companies list available rentals. You need to be careful though - because their are online scammers who often use Craig's List as well, so be careful who you are dealing with. Realtor's in CA typically service prospective buyers on housing searches, not prospective tenants - A property manager will show you available rentals they manage, but not rentals managed by other Realtors. With home prices and rates so low though... buying may be a better option for you if you qualify. If you want to discuss mortgage financing for a purchase - I am happy to help.

If you're not getting much of a response, maybe you can try increasing the fee you're offering to pay to a month and a half of rent.

This is a new endeavor for me, Tina, but I will say that the few agents I have spoken to have told me that it is more typical for the property owner to pay the agent for finding them a renter, not the renter! I would not even consider paying a month and a half's rent, to someone just for finding me a rental!
