Hi Liz,

How are you? I hope you're doing well. I had a client tell me about a negative experience that she had with this company last year. She said she paid a total of $80 in processing fees in hopes of securing an $1100 2bdrm apartment in Manhattan but they never followed up with her or got her the apartment. I've never spoken with anyone from this company or had any dealings with them personally so I can't speak from experience. I would suggest that you do your due diligence if you're thinking about doing business with them because they're had 21 complaints filed against them with the Better Business Bureau. Here's a link to a recent article about rental scams http://therealdeal.com/blog/2012/03/21/ag-issues-alert-again… I hope you find this helpful.

Looking forward,
