Not everybody wants or needs to own a home. If you’re one of those people, you still need someplace to live, though — and renters need to know this very important fact:
Renters can use REALTORS too!

Our job as Realtors is to help our clients find a place to live. And I’ve come up with SIX great reasons a renter should work with a Realtor:
YOU DON’T PAY ME ANYTHING.
That’s right — you don’t pay me a dime. When it comes to rental properties, my compensation comes from the owner/landlord/property management company.
The cost to you? ZERO DOLLARS. (Just making sure that’s clear.)
I KNOW THE AREA.
It’s my job to know Frisco. And McKinney. And Plano. And Allen. And Dallas. And Richardson. Come to think of it, pretty much all of North Texas.
I KNOW THE MARKET CONDITIONS. (Translation: Prices.)
Whether you’re looking to spend $700 a month or $2700 a month, I can pretty much tell you where we should be looking and what kind of rental you can get. I don’t want to waste your time looking at places that are out of your price range.
I CAN FIND WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR.
Whether you’re looking to rent a basic apartment, a condominium, a townhouse, a
duplex or even a single home, I’ll comb the listings and send you any kind of
rental that I think fits your needs.
I HAVE SUPERPOWERS.
OK, not exactly superpowers…but I have the ability to negotiate items (new paint, repairs, etc.) that you might not think about asking for.
I’VE GOT THE WHOLE MLS SYSTEM.
Because I have access (as all Realtors do) to the full Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system, I can find you additional options that aren’t found on other websites (from Rent-dot-com to Craigslist) or even in rental magazines.
The bottom line — I’m happy to work with clients who are looking for a rental place. And I promise to give you the same level of service that I do for my clients who are buying or selling a home.
Renters, home buyers and homeowners alike — call me at 267.566.3448 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org today!
