Thanks so much for your question in regards to your move to the Pensacola area Savannah!

Our company, Realty Masters, is the largest rental company in the Pensacola area. We currently have around 40 rental homes that you can view on our website at

To answer your question in regarsd to pets- each of our homes are individually owned, so we must run it by the individual property owner. Most ads will indicate some type of preference of pets- 1) No pets 2) Pets accepted on approval (individual case by case basis) 3) Weight or size limits based on association rules or owner preferences 4) Number of pets restricted.

Make sure to find this information on the ad to consider these comments before approaching owners.
The pets will be considered as part of your application. Typically, if you have good credit, income, and references, the owners will be much more likely to consider multiple pets.

What I suggest to people is to take a picture of the pets and write a letter explaining more information about your pets:
size, age, weight, breed, names, temperment, etc.

It also helps to have a letter from your current landlord to include that will help to!

Of course, most real estate companies in the Pensacola area will not rent to aggressive breed dogs so definitely consider that.

What are the best types of references to have? We are home owners so there won't be a landlord reference.

That one will vary from landlord to landlord. One of the biggest concerns is with the size and the breed of the dogs. That's not because landlords don't like dogs it's because of insurance. If your dogs are on the list of dangerous breeds then it will be very difficult to find a landlord willing to let you move into their property.

I work with a lot of folks moving into Pensacola. I would be happy to help you with this issue. You may contact me at or on my cell 850-293-9953.
