Not True once I dont take the few listings they give me then they no longer work with me
The only calls I get is invitation to go on tours. I am familiar with a lot of areas. I have tour many different neighborhoods on my own. I know where I want to go.
The workers I had they only try to give me South side areas like in Roseland and South shore and just because South Shore have many stores it also comes with a lot of crime and drugs and killing. I just picked up my moving papers and I am looking for housing in a nice area. Dont drink or do drugs or play loud music. I do not have any teenagers.

I am sure a broker or leasing agent the specializes in section 8 will respond. You can also check on craigslist. Make sure you put the bachelorhood you are considering moving to and section 8 or Sec 8 in the search field.
Best of luck.
