Evening Mr. Duval,

Comments by all the other agents/realtors/brokers contain important information. Two other thoughts are:

(1) With the information you would need to provided to anyone representing you, a personal daily report on properties that meet you needs would be setup (your personal Gateway on HAR) and with the information ahead of time you would already have an idea of what best suits your needs--making the process less stressful.
(2) http://www.arlingtontx.gov/animals/pdf/DangerousDogs.pdf - (this is a website for checking to see if your dogs are on the list) breed and dog weight/size can prevent your being acceptable to a landlord.

With additional information on your situation, PV Properties will be glad to setup a Gateway in your name on our website with the Houston Board of Realtors (HAR).

We welcome you to our hometown, Houston!

Welcome to Houston. I'll need a little more information to pinpoint locations for you. What is your budget? Where will you be working? How large are the dogs? Does anyone in your household smoke? Please let me know, and I'll be happy to forward you some listings of available properties. My e-mail address is below. I look forward to working with you.

Regards ...

Hello Mr. Duval,

I am sure you are happy to hear from all of us who are ready to help you.

Since you are specific about the commute, I would first need to find out where your new job is located. This helps us determine a few areas that you can choose from, and still search per your specifications.

I would also like to find out what your budget is per month, so we can cater the search based on that. Landlords also specify whether they allow smoking or not, just as they do with pets.

Will you be in Houston before the move to look for some places? Also, it would be a really good idea to start looking right away. If you would like to know the process of the rental transactions, I would be happy to explain.

Now is a great time to start looking into neighborhoods, including distances and commute times. If you would like some assistance, I'd be glad to help. Please keep in mind that rentals in Houston go very quickly (depending on the area and condition of the home). Give me a call or shoot me and email so we can discuss.
