The reason I wanted to filter out this particular company, is because all of their listings are incredibly vague. When I come here to look for a property, I would like to get as much info as possible, before even having to contact a Realtor, or whomever is listing the property. Too often I find what appears to be the perfect home, only to find later that it is in the middle of a neighborhood, that i wouldn't want my worst enemy to live in.

I want to be able to see the actual physical address for a property that is listed. I then do a map/street view to get an idea of exactly where it is located. Based on that, if all looks good, I will do a drive by the property to look at the house and neighborhood. If all looks good, then I will contact whomever has it listed to proceed. I do not want to have to waste my time or theirs on a property that there is no way in hell I would end up renting. I would guestimate that 95%+ of the properties listed by Dwellings Direct has very little info. I don't want to have to call and listen to some long winded sales pitch, or be harassed by a Realtor that now has my number, and knows I'm looking for a place to rent.

Since the answer is that I can not filter them out, I will simply use my scroll wheel on my mouse and bypass everything listed by them.

Thank you for your time.
