There are always a few bad apples out there.  If it continually happens, the easiest thing for you to do is if you can possibly find a realtor or service to help you with rentals.  You can’t always trust the future landlords people (because they are working for them).  Also, there are so many realtors these days, a lot of people do it as 2nd jobs.  I am in the industry and the one and only worst realtor I’ve ever dealt with was a in-law by marriage realtor working for her clients (family).

Sorry that happened to you. (not all are like that!)  She’s probably thought she had deals when it always fell through for bad credit. It’s rough out there right now, but she should not take it out on you.

I hear you!  When DH and I started looking for a rental place to move in together, we found our share of unprofessional realtors.  Made me wonder why they bother with the licensing requirement at all!

I called one and made an appointment to see an apartment. She never showed up. So I called the cell phone number she had given me, to see if maybe she was running late.  She had given me a wrong number!  The person on the other line had no idea what I was talking about.  She didn’t answer her office number either.

The other realtor we ended up using had helped DH finding his apartment, so he thought she was gold. It took only a few appointments for her to end up on my s**t list.  I won’t go into the details, because there are too many, but suffice to say, we didn’t use her when we bought our house.

@GreenEyedMoon:  The good thing is, they are much nicer to you when you look to buy vs. rent.  They make more money this way!  My suspicion is that since rentals aren’t that profitable, they don’t try as hard.  I once had good luck with an agent who did rentals exclusively.

Also, when you buy, ask around for recommendations!  I was pretty unsure about how to find a good buyer’s agent.  A friend of ours had just bought her house when we started looking and loved her agent.  We contacted her and loved her, too!
