Hi Roger, your situation is not uncommon as many people have less than great credit due to job loss, divorce, etc. The good news is with a letter of explanation and some good contacts, you can find a nice place to rent. You can start by visiting my rental home page on my website at :
The default search is for San Ramon, but you can just change the search for Danville or whatever city you are looking to live. If you would like to talk further about how to best position yourself for a rental application, please contact me.
