We’ll help you find the perfect rental.

While many real estate companies treat rentals as an afterthought, we believe that finding a temporary home (whether short- or long-term) deserves the same attention we give buyers and sellers. We’ll help you narrow down options, get to know the neighborhoods, tour potential homes and make sure you’re ready to go when you find the right place. 

Search For Rentals

Starting your rental search is easy.

Starting your search

Before you begin looking at actual properties, you should know how much rent you can afford, what rent control is (and how you can get it), and which neighborhood you'd like to live in.  


When you've found a rental you love, it's now time to submit your application! You should also look into your options for renter's insurance. Not only do some landlords require it, but it can also help you if something were to happen.

Moving in

Yay you've been approved! Now it's time to move in. Upon moving in to your new rental, know what the rules are so you can get your security deposit refund when you leave. You should also know how you can break your lease in case of emergency and if there is prorated rent. 

Paying rent

There may be a few options on how you can pay your rent to your landlord. Be sure you know how you will go about this and what day it is due each month. If you're forgetful, consider setting a reminder to avoid unnecessary late fees. If you are living with roommates, discuss how you will split up the rent each month and how you will go about it. It's important to set boundaries and expectations at the beginning to avoid any issues later on. 

Know your rights

Knowing what your rights are as a tenant can help you have a better experience. Here is a helpful guide we found on everything you should know about your rental rights.

Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

As a first time home buyer Stephanie was super informative and easy to work with. She made the home buying experience super fun and as less stressful as possible. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience and will for sure call Stephanie if I’m ever looking for a house again.
