Maybe Denise is correct that hiring her own agent is not the way to go, especially if agents think their time, knowledge and services are only worth the typical few hundred dollars offerred through the MLS on rentals, because what can a renter/client expect from an agent when the offerred compensation won't usually cover the agent's expenses? I think that agents should set their own compensation structures but then in return should offer an amazingly productive and efficient service to the client, which may already be occurring, but how can it be by only earning a few hundred dollars?
Much like purchaing a home, wor with a realtor that has your best interest in mind, not thiers. It should not cost you anything to get the home you want.

Your question is posed more as a statement first of all...but hey lets see if we can help you out. Most real estate agents don't really want to deal with rentals anyway as they don't pay much to begin with. I personally refer all my rental inquiries to a property management company, Apartment hunters in Mesa AZ, Tammy Fernandez there is great. Because I don't have her permission to publish her phone number I will simply say google apartment hunters mesa or Tammy Fernandez. Your other option is to find, as others have mentioned seller owned homes, condos etc. However, an agent can help you tremendously because they can check public records to see if the owner is headed to foreclosure...something that you need to consider. I do have 2 clients with rentals in S Scottsdale that have leases ending toward the end of the year, so it just depends on what your time frame is. If you want more information please feel free to contact me direct
It does not cost you anything to use a Realtor. They can research the property for you send picturs and maps and negotiate you. Not bad. Many Realtors, like me will offer free MLS rental look ups on their websites. This is active and current.
You also can look at homes in classifieds.
May I wish you the best.
