Absolutely! It will save you a lot of time, energy, frustration and gasoline. A Realtor will be a central point of contact to alleviate the need for calling multiple brokers for individual property information, responding to random ads that lead to dead ends, or wasting time viewing properties that ultimately do not fit your needs.
However, if you choose to work with a Realtor, please remember that this individual is not likely to be compensated for the time, energy, and resources he or she invests in working with you unless you ultimately end up renting a place that he/she has shown you. I would recommend finding a Realtor to work with exclusively to help you find a property.
Good luck in your search!
