"The Rental Girl is great!! She is very friendly and outspoken, she makes sure to provide all the information needed. I really liked working with her and would recommend her for everyone."
—Ibrahim N.
"I found a place in Highland Park with the help of The Rental Girl back in October. Since I have recommended the site to several friends who mentioned they were in the market for a place.

I have found the curated listings on their site to be pretty high-end and unique compared to what I have seen in much of LA. For that reason, there is also a pretty quick turnover. Listings don't last long, so I was able to casually look for the best place for several months before hand.

Highland Park was actually an area I had stopped looking in because I couldn't find the right place, but then mine just popped up and The Rental Girl was quick to respond to my interest. I definitely recommend checking them out when looking for a place."
—John L.
"The Rental Girl helped me land my dream home in a pinch and was absolutely lovely to work with. She made the experience smooth and efficient with her simultaneously professional and warm manner. The Rental Girl provide a thorough and reliable service. You are in good hands!"
—Thanh H.
"Had a pleasure dealing with The Rental Girl over the weekend. She has an amazing attitude, and is dedicated to her customers. The process of renting my apartment was very smooth, she was communicative and responsive to my needs. I would definitely recommend her services and them again myself."
—Andrey S.
"My husband and I recently moved into a lovely home with The Rental Girl's help. She was amazing from start to finish. She is so gentle, informative, and kind! The process to visit the home and apply was streamlined and simple. The Rental Girl made what is often a mad hectic process very smooth. Their branding is so fun and sharp and definitely matches their level of service. I hope we stay in this home for a long long time... but if we ever move I will definitely be checking in with The Rental Girl :). Thank you!"
—Alyssa B.
"Let me start off by saying that we were looking for a rental house in LA for over a year. We had searched via Craigslist, Zillow, you name it, we did it. This is LA and the market, like everything else here, is very competitive. Finally, a house in Mt. Washington showed up on The Rental Girl. I went to the showing at the first time available, was prompt, if not early, and dressed like I was going to a job interview. The house was exactly what we were looking for and I knew, based on the amount of people there, that they would receive multiple offers. We filed all of the necessary paperwork that night (if you have any issues with the process, then you don't get why landlords go through The Rental Girl), wrote a letter to the landlord, made an aggressive offer and crossed our fingers. We ended up getting the house. The Rental Girl walks you through the move in process which is great. Photos of every room are taken (which I do anyway, but they were far more thorough). If there were any issues with the state of the house, The Rental Girl helped negotiate everything. She was there anytime I texted her. Moving is a stressful process, and The Rental Girl made sure we crossed all of our t's and dotted the i's. Just be ready to reciprocate the professionalism."
—Vanessa M.
"I had an extremely positive experience with The Rental Girl. She was patient, honest, diligent, and quick to respond to any and all of my concerns and questions regarding my new place. She was amazingly communicative. She even was a steadfast go-between me and my new landlord and the former tenant down to issues like setting up cable/internet, when I was having a lot of trouble with Time Warner, or things like investigating noise levels (dogs, parties, etc) in the neighborhood. The process of moving can be so stressful but it was SIGNIFICANTLY less stressful because of The Rental Girl. When I was applying for my new place, it was a little competitive of a rental and she ensured that I took all steps necessary expediently to show I am the best candidate to live there. I am over the moon happy with my new apartment and thank you again to Rental Girl for making the process so smooth! The Rental Girl is the best!!"
—Jenny K.
"The Rental Girl was amazing. While looking for a place in Northeast LA, everytime we saw one that seemed to good to be true it was always a The Rental Girl property. They were so professional and prompt, couldn't have asked for more. She was particularly great to work with, helped get us into our place (that we love) and was available, understanding and communicative. Thanks!"
—Scout P.
"My wife and I recently moved down to LA from SF and found a Rental Girl listing that was perfect for us.

We worked with The Rental Girl, and she was amazing. She was so on top of everything and was in constant communication with us.
We were staying in a hotel for the weekend while we looked at places, and needed to move down by the following weekend. Thankfully, The Rental Girl helped make things happen FAST.

We turned in all of our apps/paperwork on a Monday, and got word that we had the place by Tuesday evening.
The whole experience was phenomenal and we would definitely work with The Rental Girl again. Thanks!"
—Tim H.
"The Rental Girl helped me and my roommate find a great apartment. My roommate found a listing on The Rental Girl website that fit our budget, size and location requirements. We have been living at this apartment for a year now and we are both happy with the place.

Working with The Rental Girl was a good experience. We were able to view the apartment and completed the application process quickly. Soon after we met with The Rental Girl and signed a lease. I definitely recommend checking out The Rental Girl website if you're looking for an apartment in Los Angeles."
—Eric H.
"Amazing experience. Finding a place in LA can be a nightmare, but The Rental Girl was there every step of the way to mediate between both parties to make sure everything is on the up and up.

Our experience was incredibly helpful and accessible. Whenever something would come up or we had a question, we could always count on a quick and helpful response -- unlike our experience going through other landlords/companies where we wouldn't hear back for days.

Nothing but good things to say, I don't think we would have found as good of a space without The Rental Girl."
—Mark W.
"I've worked with The Rental Girl on two different properties in Echo Park as a renter and both have been terrific experiences. On this most recent apartment search I found a place I liked and The Rental Girl worked with myself and the landlord to make the application and lease process about as easy and comfortable as it could possibly be. Their website is easy to navigate and full of great information and I appreciate the video tours they post to the photo galleries as well, as it's often hard to fully visualize a new space without one. I'd recommend The Rental Girl to anyone looking for a nice new place to call home."
—Brett H.
"I've never used any service like this before, but it worked out really well for me. Bottom line: I ended up in an apartment and neighborhood that had everything I was looking for. If you poke around the site and see that they are offering the sort of rentals you're looking for, it's worth filling out an application. You only have to fill out one and you're eligible for all the places they show.

Once I turned my app in and told The Rental Girl the apartment I wanted, things moved quickly. She walked me through the lease over coffee and got me all set up. I negotiated a later move in date without any issues. Then when I moved in, a man from the service (whose name I forgot) walked through with me and photographed any marks on the wall or flaws so I can get my deposit back (fingers crossed!).

Everyone I worked with from The Rental Girl was very thorough, responded to my concerns quickly and generally made what can be a very stressful process easy. I'd recommend it to friends!"
—Emma G.
"My experience with The Rental Girl was excellent. The Rental Girl was very helpful the whole way through. She was always available via text or email. They're efficient and thorough which made the renting process that much easier."
—P C.
"The LA rental market is a headache and competitive and a mystery but having the help of an experienced agency helps to alleviate some of that. The rental girl was extremely helpful and trust worthy and highly recommended. They charge no fees to the renter, unlike westide rentals etc. There website is amazing, they provide a TON of pictures, videos, maps everything you can need to find a rental. Nothing compares to the level of detail they provide. The LA market is dog eat dog, so yes there will be a ton of people at showings all looking to rent the same property, this is no different than buying a house in LA when 15 couples show up and they all bid over asking. They provide the landlords with all the applications and help to vet the applicants. I could not have been more pleased with the help and support I received from The Rental Girl. They answered all my questions, did not provide false hope, and kept me up to date with where my application was in the process. I am so thankful to them for helping me find my home for me and my family."
—Raena V.
"The Rental Girl was organized, approachable, and informative. We felt very comfortable working with her while making a big decision to move to a new place! She always answered our emails or phone calls in a super timely fashion, getting back to as right away, or same day. She was very patient in answering all of our questions and happily went to the landlord when she didn't know how to answer herself. Always followed-up with us too! Great service, lovely person!"
—Anna L.
"We are very thankful that it feels like every day in this new apartment a better day, a refreshing start. Thank you very much for your professional work and help, The Rental Girl. We would be very happy to let other new-home-seekers know about our pleasant experience with The Rental Girl."
—Isa L.
"My experience with The Rental Girl was great all around. She was very professional, friendly, and great with communication. The property I am currently renting is beautiful and I'm grateful to The Rental Girl for helping me through the rental process. All in all, I would absolutely recommend utilizing their services!"
—Mariel P.
"The Rental Girl was so great! We love our place so much!! The Rental Girl curates only the best apartments.
Thank you for our new wonderful life!"
—Zoe P.
"This review is long overdue..

I went through The Rental Girl in August when I found the cutest bungalow! I submitted my application and few days later, The Rental Girl told me I was in the final 3 (or 4) for landlord consideration. I paid my $30 fee and got the ball rolling. It took a little longer than I expected but was totally worth it because I got the place. LUCKILY for me, my manager at the time was really being flexible on my move-out date.Phew!
She was pleasant to work with. She kept me in the loop, returned ALL of my calls, and the process was VERY smooth."
—Christina M.
"The Rental Girl helped me find an amazing spot in downtown la's artist district. The transaction was so smooth and easy! Love the coolness of all these girls, as well as their professionalism. Thank you!!!"
—Gregory M.
"Incredible experience with The Rental Girl!....Amazing follow up, I felt she was working for my best interest, very clear, personable and a deep human touch. Best experience I have had!"
—Erik J.
"We've all heard it before: Los Angeles is an unforgiving city. And it can be pretty harsh. Whether you're vying for the last drop of raw honey from the self-pour containers at Whole Foods; desperately trying to get in to the right lane so you don't miss your exit and make yourself even later to wherever you're trying to get; or auditioning your ass off to be discovered...it's all the same. There are many of "us" and few of "it" and having someone on your side makes all the difference in the world.

Enter The Rental Girl. I have been looking for an apartment for some time now and time and again I have heard the same stories: "That unit's been rented."; "We have 27 applications for that unit."; "Landlords in LA don't like co-signers." I was just about ready to give up and trudge my sorry self back to the dark, slushy, sleety, frozen winters of Boston when I found these beauties.

Not only do they have exceptionally lovely units that aren't in apartment-farms managed by corporations with buildings across the globe, they also have the care and warmth that can give a girl hope when she's looked at 30 units in two months and is beyond burnt out. The images on their website are representative of the actual unit. No online dating-eque surprises ("Funny, your profile said you were 6'2" and gainfully employed. I'd say you were more like, 5'6" and...") when you arrive at the unit. No hidden costs. No rented units sitting for days on the website looking very available. And once you submit an application to one of The Rental Girl team members, your application stays good for any and all units you're interested in, regardless of which Rental Girl you originally submitted your application to. You pay the screening fee once.

And if that's not enough, these women have been kind, thoughtful, responsive, supportive, and even willing to deal with a few tears (hey, who wouldn't cry after looking at 30 apartments that looked lovely online and turned out to be filthy rat holes?) along the journey.

I've noticed that there have been other comments about this team and about their expensive units. I would like to point out several things: 1) Los Angeles is expensive. According to NPR if you compare the median home price with the median income it is *the* most expensive city in the country. Worse than Manhattan. Yes. Worse. Than. Manhattan. 2) You do not have to pay The Rental Girl anything out of your own pocket for their help. So it makes sense that perhaps the landlords they work with raise their rents a touch. Fine with me.

I wish The Rental Girls were also Car-Buying Girls; Travel-Agent Girls; Matchmaker Girls...Life GIrls?"
—Elsa R.
"I was really happy with my experience renting an apartment with The Rental Girl. The listing was absolutely true to reality (pictures/amenties, etc). I felt really good about the apartment from the ad's description and so followed their advice to bring a filled-out application with me to the showing, and, when it turned out that the apartment was as good as advertised, I handed it in to The Rental Girl, paid the screening fee ($30, no other fees at all), and, lo and behold, a day and a half later, I had an apartment. I felt much more comfortable having this agency handle/explain the lease compared with many landlords/subletters of smaller buildings who often don't quite seem fluent in all of the ins and outs. She addressed all of my concerns promptly via email or text, and all of my in-person interactions with her happened on time. I did a very thorough walk-through with her on the day I moved in, and she took a ton of pictures to illustrate the move-in condition of the apartment for me to have as evidence when I eventually leave. My rent is high-ish, but not ridiculously so, and it's a nice apartment with good appliances in a safe and attractive area, so I think it's well worth it (given, of course, that rents in nice parts of LA are generally higher than in many other cities). Overall, I only looked at one of their listings, but it was the one for me, and I'm very satisfied with how it all worked out."
—Lindsey M.
"The Rental Girl is wonderful! From their welcoming, super friendly website, to them holding your hand through the entire terrifying, emotionally debilitating apartment hunting process.

They are caring, helpful and extremely efficient.

I had the pleasure of working with The Rental Girl as I searched for apartments in the Eagle Rock area - she helped me find and land a wonderful place that is now my lovely home. She took away all the stress of apartment hunting - she was super friendly and professional and a huge huge help.

I highly recommend the crew at The Rental Girl!"
—Noga P.
"The Rental Girl was a pleasure to work with and she was very quick to reply to all my texts and emails. She processed all of our paperwork in one morning and got us approved by the afternoon. She is very professional and nice. I will definitely use her again and I highly recommend her to everyone."
—Alma H.
"Ask any of my friends and they will vouch that I move WAY too much around LA. I've been here for about 10 years now, and I move about every couple of years or so from one part of town to the next.

This last move has got to be the EASIEST one that I've had, and it's all thanks to The Rental Girl.

Let's face it, no one likes moving. And I'm pretty much an idiot for doing it so often. But The Rental Girl was seriously on top of her game. From the online post, to meeting her at the open house, to all of the nasty paperwork afterwards, she was very honest and thorough, and extremely polite and respectful in all my dealings with her. She was always in communication with me and very warm and professional in doing so. For example, whenever the landlord had any kind of update of information, I was always the first to know. She had also contacted all references and they didn't have anything but nice things to say about her.

I've never used a Realtor before her, and now I'm sure if I ever come across another one, they will definitely have to hold up to her standards. Employees are almost always a reflection of the company that they work for, so I have no doubt that these group of girls at The Rental Girl won't let you down. If you ever come across an opportunity to use them, please don't hesitate!"
—Liz C.
"Being new to renting was a little daunting at first but with the help of The Rental Girl, it wouldn't have been easier. She helped me through the entire process keeping me updated promptly. She's super sweet and is really excited about her job and clients. What I love about The Rental Girl is how they compile their listings by area, show detailed pictures, list all the features of a place and even provide a video walk through so you don't waste your time actually going to the place to see it. The best part is you can set up appointments to see the property online and they email you confirmations. It's so easy and efficient. They even have a video on filling out the application process which makes it idiot proof.

I would recommend to anyone to really do your homework on the area you want to live and be prepared but that comes with anything. The Rental Girl are awesome and have made my experience of renting my first place easy and quick."
—Valerie S.
"The Rental Girl proved themselves to be a helpful and professional organization. She helped facilitate a very smooth transaction between the landlady of our current apartment and my roommates and me, and I would gladly recommend her to others."
—Iris J.
"I can not say enough good things about The Rental Girl. She made the process so simple and easy. Renting through The Rental Girl is a no brainer. Some advice......watch the YouTube video they provide on how to make your application stand out and do it. The landlords and The Rental Girl notice. The more organized and prepared you are on your end the more likely you will rent something you love quickly. Again I can not say enough good things about The Rental Girl. Do yourself a favor and rent with her."
—Michael M.
"I loved working with The Rental Girl. I had been looking for the place that was in the right neighborhood, the right size, and the right price.
The Rental Girl helped me find all three. She was thorough, kind, and gracious, and it was a pleasure working with her. If I move again to another place in L.A., she will be the first person I'll look to."
—Tracy L.
"I just used The Rental Girl to find an apartment, and my experience was great. I am absolutely in the love with the apartment, and our rental girl was so nice and so helpful. I will definitely use The Rental Girl next time I move."
—Randi S.
"We were trying to get a place in Los Angeles, my friends from college, and we saw this place from The Rental Girl and we absolutely loved the place. We knew we really wanted it.

The Rental Girl really helped us out and kept us updated with the information and what the owner wanted at any given time. She helped keep us a head of the curve of other renters trying to get that place.

She met us and got to know us and I think she saw that this place was a perfect fit for us. I highly recommend the rental girl. Personable, on time, and most of all THEY GET THINGS DONE!"
—Devin K.
"Who says moving is hard. Not when you have The Rental Girl..
Thank you, You have made it so easy for my husband and me to move to Los Angeles. All we had to do is tell her what our budget was and she was so on it. She gave us options to choose from and what made her so special is that she was so patient with our needs. It was like having a personal shopper for an apartment. VIP service with a smile, how sweet is that? The good thing is that we didn't even have to pay her... I can tell she really loves what she does....
Thank you, thank you, thank you The Rental Girl for making it so easy.. We love our new place."
—Pamela D.
"I was moving to LA from Atlanta and needed to find an apartment in a 4 day period. After many disappointing viewings of sketchy places in sketchy neighborhoods, it was a breath of fresh air to work with The Rental Girl. Contrary to some of the other reviewers, I found it extremely easy to get in touch with her. If she didn't answer her phone, she replied to texts and emails very promptly. She was thorough and very professional.

The listings they provide are also very high quality. For working professionals that would prefer well-maintined buildings with respectful tenants, this is the rental agency."
—E K.
"My husband and I worked with The Rental Girl to find our current apartment. We were living in Oakland at the time and had just returned from a trip down to LA to find our new home when I was desperately searching The Rental Girl for one last hope. The apartment had just been listed and we knew that it was the perfect fit... even though we couldn't come all the way back to LA to check it out in person. We immediately contacted The Rental Girl and submitted our application. I then, of course, proceeded to contact her every day, sometimes twice a day, to get her everything she needed for the application or to just tell her how much we desperately wanted this apartment! I really did feel bad, like I was being just an awful person, harassing this poor girl, but she was super nice and I really believe she did everything she could to make sure we got our dream apartment.

She was extremely helpful and nice throughout the entire process. She even took additional photos for us since we couldn't see the apartment in person, and really just made us feel comfortable in our decision and made it as easy as possible for us to rent the apartment we wanted.

As far as The Rental Girl in general, I love that they sift through all the crap that's out there and offer only the places someone would actually want to live in.

If we ever move we will definitely check with The Rental Girl first."
—Anna T.
"After a difficult summer looking for a house, my husband and I were at the end of our ropes. We were using Westside Rentals and occasionally using Craigslist, but both of them were pretty dismal. Adding to this was the fact that we have a unique financial situation and it was really hard to find a place. My husband found The Rental Girls and I was blown away by the amount of pictures they post. Lucky us, those girls cover the area we were looking for, Silverlake and Echo Park. We went to a few showings and found her very friendly and professional. None of those places worked out, but we kept on looking. Then I saw THE PLACE on The Rental Girl's listing page. I texted her about it and she promptly replied and confirmed our appointment.
We really wanted the place and she was very encouraging. The application process was easy and straight forward. The Rental Girl kept us posted throughout the process via text message, which I really appreciated. She really helped us with our special situation and is obviously very thorough in checking references. The whole time I felt like I had someone on my side, not the somewhat antagonistic relationship I have had with other prospective landlords or rental agencies.
When we got the news that the place was ours, she made an appointment with us for a comprehensive lease signing and really went through everything on the lease. I liked this because it gave us an opportunity to ask questions and clarify with a third party, something that's not always an option. At the walkthrough, we all went through the house with a checklist and she took pictures of anything that was damaged. She later emailed them to us so there is a third party record of everything, therefore protecting our damage deposit. Wow.
The Rental Girl's got us into the best house we have ever lived in. I highly recommend them for prompt, friendly service, patience and an all-around cool vibe. They put a lot of care into what they're doing, for sure. Thanks a ton!"
—Jenica S.
"The Rental Girl helped me find my loft and I am so happy she did! She was great to work with and the whole process was totally smooth. They also, have some of the best listings around. 5 stars for sure."
—Mr P.
"My roommate and I used The Rental Girl to rent our place in Echo Park this past fall and were beyond impressed. The site was easy to navigate and is much more favorable than old craigslist. She was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process and I would definitely recommend The Rental Girl for anyone seeking amazing deals and efficient service on the eastside."
—Veronica P.
"From start to finish, our experience with The Rental Girl was really positive. She was cheerful and reliable, very professional. We had been looking on our own for a couple of weeks and were a bit discouraged. Though not always, it often seemed like standards were not high enough. (I'm referring to clean, cared for premises, responsive landlord, stuff like that.) All that changed when we started working with The Rental Girl. The apartments and houses that we looked at showed a good balance between price and quality of living space. Once we decided on a place, the final process of credit checking and filling out forms was facilitated well and seemed so easy. We love our new home and highly recommend The Rental Girl to help you with your house or apartment hunting."
—Amelia B.
"I've lived in LA for 6 years and have always had incredible luck finding great places to live... until this go around. The Rental Girl saved me from an arduous scouting and signing process!

First of all, The Rental Girl was incredibly nice and available. She responded to my questions and concerns in an incredibly timely matter. Furthermore, her efficiency meant a quick agreement process that was moved along with top-notch online documents and other digital services The Rental Girl works with.

The apartment is great, and I love knowing I have a landlord who took the time and care to use a service like The Rental Girl to essentially vet potential tenants. Great neighbors, great building, great landlord, easy process. I highly recommend using The Rental Girl if you're looking for a unique, well-kept, and well-managed property to rent!"
—Charley M.
"I was moving from Chicago to Los Angeles and I knew that I wanted a place that felt modern but very California. As soon as the unit popped up on http://TheRentalGirl.com, I immediately contacted The Rental Girl because I didn't want to lose out on the opportunity. I told her that I was moving from Chicago and that I had a friend that was going to check out the unit for me. She walked my friend through the unit and answered all of my questions for me very quickly. She worked after hours multiple times in order to keep everything moving forward for us. She put me in touch with the landlord and we hit it off. She made the process of moving from state to state a lot easier for us. The process of signing the lease was the easiest paperwork I've ever done. We are in LOVE with out place and the landlord/neighbors are AWESOME.

I definitely consider http://TheRentalGirl.com the best apartment finding service in LA because you deal with real people and they care.

Thanks!"
—Taylor L.
"Great experience.
First I've always loved their offers on their website. Having the VIP mailing list makes it even easier. The description is very exhaustive with the photos, videos, ..
Moreover, they usually have very exclusive offers that you don't see anywhere else. I don't know how they do. Well, i can imagine it's because they are very serious in the selection of the tenants. When you give references, be sure that they are real because they won't miss anyone.
Anyway, The Rental Girl was very friendly, very pro and in the good position (as much for the tenants than for the landlords). The walkaround for exmaple is very serious with shared photos and reports.
We found the house of our dreams and everybody's asking us where we found it. I have no problem to promote The Rental Girl agency.."
—Franck B.
"The Rental Girl is a great service. She did an excellent job helping us find our desired apartment. I would recommend The Rental Girl for anyone that's seeking an apartment in the Los Angles area."
—Jake A.
"The Rental Girl was a great help in finding me the perfect place! She was quick to respond to my calls and texts and was a great ambassador for the landlord. The tips on the website, plus her willingness to go the extra mile got me the apartment! She helped go over the lease, take pictures of the place before I moved in, and has followed up afterward to see how everything is going. I'm so glad I used The Rental Girl!"
—Teresa S.
"I'm the first one to admit that I hate moving and apartment searching , but the agents at The Rental Girl made the whole process very easy and painless. She was super nice and kept us posted through every step. I honestly enjoyed my experience using The Rental girl and highly recommend going through them!"
—Fredy C.
"The Rental Girl recently helped us rent a house in El Sereno. Throughout the process (even after we had signed the lease and moved in!) she was friendly and efficient. She quickly processed our application, ensured that the property was ready for our move-in, and even took all of the move-in photos for us. I highly recommend working with The Rental Girl if you are looking to rent in the Los Angeles area. They provide a fantastic service!"
—Jessica K.
"My boyfriend and I moved to LA from Texas and were having a lot of trouble finding a suitable place in Los Angeles. We looked all over on Craigslist and Westside Rentals to the point of exhaustion: one place had no refrigerator, another had the most racist landlady ever, another had mice, etc.

When we finally found The Rental Girl we were relieved. Not only did she show us the best place ever (our current apartment in Echo Park), but she was quick to get back to us and assuage our nervousness about being approved by the landlord. She walked us through signing our lease and even took pictures of the apartment when we moved in to record damages. The Rental Girl is the best, she made finding an apartment in this crazy city much easier."
—Amelia G.
"I cannot recommend The Rental Girl enough. Don't waste your time sifting through the other rental sites online. Go directly here. It's FREE to look on their website (F you, WestsideRentals) and you will not be disappointed with your experience.
Looking for a great place in LA is a disaster. I saw the same handful of dumb postings on Craigslist/WestsideRentals/etc. None of the properties were very clean and the owners were annoyed to deal with arranging showings-- if they even returned your call or if the place hadn't already been snapped up and no one bothered to take the posting down.
I happened across http://TheRentalGirl.com and contacted her, who then got back to me immediately. I saw a couple of her properties on a Saturday "rolling" open house. They were all immaculate, beautiful spaces and she was just as friendly and helpful in person as she was over text/email. I jumped on one of the properties and The Rental Girl hustled to get my application in front of the landlord immediately (on a Sunday!). I got the place and thought maybe she would peace out after that, but she stayed right by my side and handled the walk-through, introductions to the landlord, and went through the lease paragraph-by-paragraph to make sure I knew what I was signing. She's also keeping pictures of the interiors on file for when the day comes that I move out and need to get my security deposit back. I've never had such a pleasant experience as a renter in my life. Five gold stars for The Rental Girl."
—Katy A.
"The Rental Girl isn't just some gimmicky name for a leasing company, our agent lived up to the name! She was patient, hardworking, and an effective advocate on our behalf during the application process. (I mention patience because I'm typically late to everything but she was graceful about the issue.) Shortly after meeting her and touring the apartment we found on The Rental Girl website, my roommate and I applied to move into a spot in Echo Park/Filipinotown with a spectacular view of Downtown LA. The whole application experience unfolded smoothly - especially because she was great about accommodating our preferred method of communication - text. My roommate and I moved into the apartment exactly 30 days ago. I was completely satisfied with the experience. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an apartment in Los Angeles."
—Trinidad R.
"I rented my place through The Rental Girl last month and have only good things to say. First of all, (and you already know this if you've been to their website) The Rental Girl has some amazing properties, and unlike all the zillion other places I saw through craigslist, what you see in their pictures is actually what the place looks like, which is awesome. I couldn't be happier with my place, and she was incredibly helpful throughout the process. Also, one really cool thing about The Rental Girl that I didn't know is that they help you through the whole lease signing process, which is especially awesome since tenants don't pay them anything. I met with The Rental Girl and she walked me through every single item on the lease and answered all my questions... and then before I moved in she came over with a whole check-list to fill out about the condition everything was in, and took pictures of everything, so that when it comes time to move out I can say the floor was already chipped in that place or whatever. I never would have thought to do that myself (though everyone probably should when they move) and really appreciate that The Rental Girl is so on top of that kind of stuff. I would definitely recommend them as a company!!"

"When we made a big cross country move a few weeks ago, the stress level was extremely high because we were simultaneously packing our belongings, shipping them out, looking for work in our future city of Los Angeles and also looking for places to live. We had recently backed out of a home purchase a few weeks shy of closing because of unforeseen structural issues and we suddenly found ourselves moving to a new city with no place to live, and right in the middle of the busy Christmas season. We secured an airbnb rental for a few days after we arrived in LA and spent every waking moment scouring craigslist and http://westsidepropertieâ?¦ for properties that would suit us. We were in a time crunch because we were heading home for Christmas and wanted to find a place we could move into as soon as we came back instead of having to stay in another vacation rental. There was little on the market the week of December 20th, and very few people around to show us the spaces that we wanted to see, but Zaya at The Rental Girl really came through for us, and she ended up going above and beyond the call of duty for what a normal brokerage would do given our circumstances. I won't bore you with all the details, but Zaya made herself available for us at all times and made sure she was super flexible to work with our bizarre, unexpected parameters. She was also out of town on Christmas vacation, but she made sure she kept in touch with us from abroad and she managed to get all the necessary business completed in a timely fashion so that we could arrange to pick the keys up the morning after we arrived back in LA. Aside from being so helpful and accommodating, The Rental Girl properties were also the best that we ended up seeing in our search for a place in LA. Their inventory is small but of very high quality, and they had places to see all over the city. If we hadn't found The Rental Girl, I don't think we would be in a space as perfect for us as this one."

"I am a bit OCD when it comes to apartment hunting or anything along those lines that would involve a big investment and I can whole heartedly say that The Rental Girl was the best way to go! I just signed a lease, she was friendly, understanding, professional and made the experience the best it could be! All documents were signed electronically which was helpful for us since my roommate is out of state at the moment. She made the whole process easy and we literally signed the lease 2 days after seeing the property! I would give more stars if I could!"
—Sarah M.
"My boyfriend and I recently moved from North Carolina to Los Angeles and we had about a week in early May to line up an apartment for a move for the middle of June. We found a The Rental Girl property in Echo Park that we really loved on Craigslist and called her the next day. She immediately responded and we agreed to meet the following day to see the property. The one we saw was actually for immediate rent (and we weren't moving for a month)but The Rental Girl was extremely helpful and told us about an apartment in the same building that would be coming open in June but hadn't been listed yet and even got clearance from the tennant to show us the property the next day (since we were on a tight deadline and couldn't wait until she was out to view it).

To work with us on our very short deadline (we were catching a flight!) She worked around the clock to get us and our dogs approved by the landlord and call our references and it paid off- we were signing a lease about a day and a half later!

We really appreciated her commitment to helping us with all our time constraints and we're very happy with our new apartment! We would definitely recommend their service and won't hesitate to use them again should we decide to move in the future. They took a lot of the stress out of what could have been a very harrowing apartment hunt."
—Heather S.
"The Rental Girl is wonderful! She made a completely stressful situation easy. I really appreciate her diligence and dedication in helping me find the perfect place. She gave me great advice on how to set myself above other renters and now I am very happy in my new dream home. I would recommend her to anyone looking to live on the East side, she will find you exactly what you are looking for. Thank you, The Rental Girl!!!"
—Sofa L.
"We discovered The Rental Girl after searching for a month aimlessly through other sites and falling short of our dream place.

Not only were the listing on this site wonderful and full of character but they were within our price range! The site is easy to use with a whole lot of character. One definite plus is that they have video tours, this helped us decide if we wanted to go take an in-person tour.

The Rental Girl makes looking for an apartment a smooth and easy going process. Signing our lease was a breeze and it was nice to have electronic access to these documents.

We had the pleasure of working with The Rental Girl. She is professional, friendly, and makes you excited to be moving into a new place. She made sure were were happy with the apartment and that it was up to par. I appreciate her also making sure that we were a good fit for what the owners of the apartment are looking for.

Thank you The Rental Girl for making our move less stressful and for a wonderful unit!"
—Mauricio F.
"Super satisfied with the help from The Rental Girl. She was instrumental in the entire housing process from the initial viewing to the walk trough after signing the lease. Everyone in The Rental Girl office was knowledgable and savvy when answering our questions . The communication was efficient and user friendly. I never had to make a bunch of copies of my ID or pay crazy up front application fees. I was able to send most things via my phone, which made what can be a tedious process of applying, a simple task. I'm thoroughly pleased with my new spot and the beyond friendly service from The Rental Girl!"
—Collin C.
"Was in contact with The Rental Girl for a few rental opportunities and she was very nice, helpful, and professional.
I recommend being informed on the properties and what is included by visiting their website...They even have tours set up so really no need to call with a million questions that are already answered for you on their website.

They also have virtual tours...Great stuff.

Highly recommend her and their services."
—David C.
"The Rental Girl is fantastic. She's incredibly nice and professional. We ended up not renting an apartment from The Rental GIrl, but during the process she was so helpful; answered every question I had promptly, even if it was something she didn't know she'd check with the landlord and get back to me immediately. Did I mention how nice she is? I never felt pressured.
The apartment was in great condition and clean (awesome location as advertised).

Their website is already pretty great if you're looking for a rental."
—Michael W.
"Had a great experience with The Rental Girl. Was my first time renting a place with friends, and she was very professional and helpful with the paperwork, showing us the place, etc. Would definitely go to her again!"
—A L.
"The Rental Girl was an incredible help! She had some wonderful units available in great neighborhoods and we really appreciated all she did for us. She also took the time to go through our rental contract and was very thorough in answering our questions and moving the application process along very quickly. I would recommend her to anyone moving to Los Angeles."
—Andrew W.
"The Rental Girl really helped me out last year when I was looking for a new place. She had a lot of places to show in the various areas I wanted to live and she happily toured me from place to place until we found the right one. Once we found the spot for me, she helped me through everything to get it locked in. If I'm looking for an apartment in her service area again, I'll definitely give her a call first."
—Jeremy S.
"I was excited to find The Rental Girl in my search for a new apartment in Echo Park. Their listings really represent their properties well. It was a pleasure to work with her, who guided us through the whole renting process and kept us up to date on our application, etc. She is very professional and a joy to work with."
—Sara A.
"The Rental Girl is wonderful! She went above and beyond to get us into our dream house!
Friendly and professional.. I would definitely recommend The Rental Girls to everyone!"
—Mindy J.
"I had a great experience working with The Rental Girl. She is extremely professional, punctual, communicative and also very friendly and pleasant! From seeing the apartment to signing the lease, it took 3-4 days, and all along the way, she guided me on what to do and what to expect. It was a smooth and thorough process, and I would recommend her without hesitation!"
—K C.
"My girlfriend and I really enjoyed going through The Rental Girl (all of whom seemed completely on top of EVERYTHING). Through them we got an amazing Victorian in Angelino Heights that's over a 100 years old. Not only that, but the place has such a good landlord who keeps things so nice that everyone asks us if we're the first ones to ever live here!"
—Alex D.
"The Rental Girl is awesome. She helped us find a great place, submit our application, and secure the swankiest pad I have yet rented. Her friendliness and great attitude are eclipsed only by her knowledge of real estate and professional abilities. If you need someone who gets the job done, contact The Rental Girl. She won't let you down."
—Derek S.
"My room mate and I first met The Rental Girl when we searching around the east side of LA for the perfect place. We met her while she was showing a place in Highland Park and we all immediately hit it off. She told us that she would keep us in the loop for other opening listings, and she did! We fell in LOVE with our new house in Echo Park. She worked so hard around my busy traveling schedule, and she made signing the lease easy and effortless. She even worked with me via phone and email while we were off working in the Bahamas! The
Rental Girls are down to earth, lovely, and really good at what they do. I won't bother going thru anyone else next time I move!"
—Marylouise P.
"From start to finish, our experience with The Rental Girl was really positive. She was cheerful and reliable, very professional. We had been looking on our own for a couple of weeks and were a bit discouraged. Though not always, it often seemed like standards were not high enough. (I'm referring to clean, cared for premises, responsive landlord, stuff like that.) All that changed when we started working with The Rental Girl. The apartments and houses that we looked at showed a good balance between price and quality of living space. Once we decided on a place, the final process of credit checking and filling out forms was facilitated well and seemed so easy. We love our new home and highly recommend The Rental Girl to help you with your house or apartment hunting."
—Amelia B.
"My roommate and I used The Rental Girl to get our place in Echo Park. The Rental Girl was fantastic. Everything about our experience was great. Looking for an apartment sucks, but they keep things short and sweet. There's no fee to search, but there is an application fee. Luckily, we got the apartment so it was worth the cost for us. I'd recommend this site to anyone looking for an apartment. They have a solid listing and the pictures and details seemed to be pretty on point with what we saw when we showed up. Definitely worth a look. Good luck!"
—Anna N.
"Working with the rental girl was easy. Most of the apartments through The Rental Girl are great properties - they basically screen them for you. It's like shopping at a cool vintage store as opposed to picking through Goodwill or Value Village for hours. She facilitated everything between the landlord and myself, and in a timely manner. Love my apartment. Great landlord too. Thanks The Rental Girl!"
—Dori S.
"The Rental Girl website really made my search easy. I was very lucky to have stumbled across this site. I just knew the area I wanted to be in and the agent that represents the area helped me to narrow everything down for me. The site answers pretty much everything you may have to ask. The pictures are very helpful and hold to the truth. The properties are well maintained by the landlords. I would utilize them again if I decide to move to another area in the future for any reason.
Thanks again The Rental Girl!"
—Jason P.
"After a difficult summer looking for a house, my husband and I were at the end of our ropes. We were using Westside Rentals and occasionally using Craigslist, but both of them were pretty dismal. Adding to this was the fact that we have a unique financial situation and it was really hard to find a place. My husband found The Rental Girls and I was blown away by the amount of pictures they post. Lucky us, those girls cover the area we were looking for, Silverlake and Echo Park. We went to a few of their showings and found them very friendly and professional. None of those places worked out, but we kept on looking. Then I saw THE PLACE on their website. I texted her about it and she promptly replied and confirmed our appointment.

We really wanted the place and she was very encouraging. The application process was easy and straight forward. She kept us posted throughout the process via text message, which I really appreciated. She really helped us with our special situation and is obviously very thorough in checking references. The whole time I felt like I had someone on my side, not the somewhat antagonistic relationship I have had with other prospective landlords or rental agencies.

When we got the news that the place was ours, she made an appointment with us for a comprehensive lease signing and really went through everything on the lease. I liked this because it gave us an opportunity to ask questions and clarify with a third party, something that's not always an option. At the walkthrough, we all went through the house with a checklist and she took pictures of anything that was damaged. She later emailed them to us so there is a third party record of everything, therefore protecting our damage deposit. Wow.

The Rental Girls got us into the best house we have ever lived in. I highly recommend them for prompt, friendly service, patience and an all-around cool vibe. They put a lot of care into what they're doing, for sure. Thanks a ton!"
—Jenica S.
"The Rental Girl helped me find my loft and I am so happy she did! She was great to work with and the whole process was totally smooth. They also, have some of the best listings around. 5 stars for sure."

"My husband and I worked with The Rental Girl to find our current apartment. We were living in Oakland at the time and had just returned from a trip down to LA to find our new home when I was desperately searching The Rental Girl for one last hope. The apartment had just been listed and we knew that it was the perfect fit... even though we couldn't come all the way back to LA to check it out in person. We immediately contacted her and submitted our application. I then, of course, proceeded to contact her every day, sometimes twice a day, to get her everything she needed for the application or to just tell her how much we desperately wanted this apartment! I really did feel bad, like I was being just an awful person, harassing this poor girl, but she was super nice and I really believe she did everything she could to make sure we got our dream apartment.

She was extremely helpful and nice throughout the entire process. She even took additional photos for us since we couldn't see the apartment in person, and really just made us feel comfortable in our decision and made it as easy as possible for us to rent the apartment we wanted.

As far as The Rental Girl in general, I love that they sift through all the crap that's out there and offer only the places someone would actually want to live in.

If we ever move we will definitely check with The Rental Girl first."
—Anna T.
"I loved working with The Rental Girl. I had been looking for the place that was in the right neighborhood, the right size, and the right price.
She helped me find all three. She was thorough, kind, and gracious, and it was a pleasure working with her. If I move again to another place in L.A., she will be the first person I'll look to."
—Tracy L.
"I just used The Rental Girl to find an apartment, and my experience was great. I am absolutely in the love with the apartment, and our Rental Girl was so nice and so helpful. I will definitely use The Rental Girl next time I move."
—Rando S.
"We were trying to get a place in Los Angeles, my friends from college, and we saw this place from The Rental Girl and we absolutely loved the place. We knew we really wanted it.

Our Rental Girl really helped us out and kept us updated with the information and what the owner wanted at any given time. She helped keep us a head of the curve of other renters trying to get that place.

She met us and got to know us and I think she saw that this place was a perfect fit for us. I highly recommend the rental girl. Personable, on time, and most of all THEY GET THINGS DONE!"

"Who says moving is hard. Not when you have The Rental Girl..
Thank you, You have made it so easy for my husband and me to move to Los Angeles. All we had to do is tell her what our budget was and she was so on it. She gave us options to choose from and what made her so special is that she was so patient with our needs. It was like having a personal shopper for an apartment. VIP service with a smile, how sweet is that? The good thing is that we didn't even have to pay her... I can tell she really loves what she does....
Thank you, thank you, thank you The Rental Girl for making it so easy.. We love our new place."
—Pamela D.
"I was moving to LA from Atlanta and needed to find an apartment in a 4 day period. After many disappointing viewings of sketchy places in sketchy neighborhoods, it was a breath of fresh air to work with The Rental Girl. I found it extremely easy to get in touch with her. If she didn't answer her phone, she replied to texts and emails very promptly. She was thorough and very professional.

The listings they provide are also very high quality. For working professionals that would prefer well-maintained buildings with respectful tenants, this is the rental agency."

"My experience with Missy at The Rental Girl was phenomenal!

My husband and I were moving from the San Francisco Bay Area to Los Angeles, and were pretty worried about finding a place we liked. We were tired of paying the high prices in the area and wanted something cute and affordable and after searching all over the place, I stumbled upon The Rental Girl thanks to craigslist!

I promptly told my husband that this was the site we would use for apartment hunting (a bunch of awesome ladies taking the LA real estate by storm? yes please!) and found one we loved that day and I was quickly in contact. Missy was fast to respond and such a breeze to work with. We met her at a small open house at the apartment and we fell in love and I always felt Missy was on my side, willing to help me achieve what I wanted. She was flexible and always in communication.

Thanks to her, we got the apartment! We absolutely love it and wish we could just work with Missy all the time on many other things. She made our move less stressful, she was always friendly and punctual and kind and professional, she is the IDEAL person to have handle big life changes and I'm so glad I found her/The Rental Girl. Even now, after moving into the apartment, she's checked in with me to make sure everything is going well.

If I ever need to rent again or even buy, I will always go to Missy first!"

"From start to finish Robyn made the house hunting process absolutely painless. She was attentive, informative and prompt. Her willingness to communicate via text was a huge bonus as I maintain long work hours. Her knowledge of the San Fernando Valley and Greater Los Angeles dually lends itself to native Angelinos as well as relocaters. She made every effort to accommodate our preferences and schedules. Her professionalism and customer service were refreshing and greatly appreciated. I reccomend her without reservation."

Keep her around!"
