That might help but we are at about a 3% vacancy rate city wide and it can be tighter depending where you are looking. I heard of some real estate management companies charging a retainer fee to find you a place because they come and go quick. I am not much help but it is hard I know when I try and show out of town clients places since they want to rent for a year and watch the prices go up 15%. I hope you are not trying to rent with a pet since that almost eliminates all places. Good luck to you. Tom Inglesby, Broker, RE/MAX Equity Group... more

Of course there are possibly options Craigslist.com, and with Ikea in town, you could furnish an apartment for very little, so if the executive stay places are too expensive, she might like to live in the Pearl District in a loft or apartment, which will feel more European, as you can walk everywhere, and I have resources for rentals there...
Are you in Portland Maine and she's coming to Portland OR?
