Thank you, this is very helpful.

We also belong to the dog training club and 2 members are Realtors. They both offered to give me good letters when time comes =) So I am glas that these things get considered.

We already have 1 letter for Zeus, CGC certificate, he is a prescription ESA so he is all set.

I will work on training with the new bundle of Joy =)

I brought my "aggressive" dog along, and they were like "this dog, no way!". It just takes some phone calls and personal meetings and you will find the right owner who welcomes you with open arms if I can do it with an "aggressive" dog, you have no worries

Thank you! I will show people pictures! My "aggressive" 1 year old puppy was just tackled at the park by 4 small children. He loved every minute of it...... I have photos of this

Good luck either way.

It can be done. It helps to have an impressive job. Realtors often manage property and can be more flexible than a full-fleged property management firm.

The ease depends upon the rental market in your area.
I was wondering if Realtor would treat us differently or property managers if I tell them my husband is a pharmacist and we are moving to a new city for his job. I also work full time, but from home i fly to the meetings when needed. (he graduates in May)

Liesje ^ agree on the job thing and property management. Our landlord did some sort of credit check on us before we were "approved". Also, this was the only property he owned and managed. He and his wife lived in it first, then started a family and needed more room but kept it as a rental. The property was actually for sale the entire 3.5 years we lived there but with the market as bad as it was here and the duplex having a HUGE yard no landlord wants to maintain, we never had a single showing and moved out on our own terms (bought a house). As far as I know, the landlords still own it and I've helped them find new renters.

DJEtzel I'm not sure what you're waiting for!

If you have patience, (and sometimes $$$) you will be able to find a private rental and possibly agent that will work with you.
