There is a fee from $75-$150 but they will fervently look for a suitable place for you and your family. Hope this helps. Shanny was great with me. This is mostly houses but I think they help with apartments as well.

Hi Travis-

I agree completely with what the other 2 agents have said about what it takes to rent a house in this market. As a landlord we understand that most of our tenant prospects have a few dings in their credit these days. A steady job and a clear criminal background can usually overcome a weak credit report if you have first month's rent and a security deposit.

We have a number of properties that may meet your requirements. Please call Sharon Baker at 404-753-7524 to discuss your situation in more detail.

You can click on the link below to see the properties we have available now. we look forward to working with you and helping you find your next home!

Credit is not the only requirement this days. There is a lot of people with bad credit, so work stability, proof of income, utilities paid, police background check and personal references are also other ways to get a tenant to quality.

Good luck!

Rentals acceptance are based on what the owner want. Poor credit is not the only requirement to get a rental home.
