I worked with Erin when I moved from Los Angeles to Washington DC for a new job. Erin was able to communicate to me about properties that fit the profile I was looking for, even before I got to DC. She was quick to send me links for rental apartments to view, and asked me what I liked and didn't like about them, in order to refine her search. She was knowledgeable about the various parts of DC and Virginia that we were considering, including how residential vs. urban each area was, how close various apartments were to the Metro, how close each apartment was to various conveniences (grocery stores, drug stores, etc.), and what each neighborhood felt like, in terms of atmosphere.
Erin was on point the entire time when I visited DC to view the apartments. She was glad to drive me to visit the different complexes, and had arranged with each complex how to smoothly show me the apartment--in terms of getting keys, when we could view, etc. She patiently waited while I browsed the various rooms of each apartment, even when I lingered, trying to make a decision. She asked me what my thoughts were, and was open to feedback. She was honest about the plusses and minuses of each apartment--e.g., comparing the heating system in each, whether each had a washer/dryer included, etc. She was also great in driving around each neighborhood to point out where the Metro stop was, where the grocery store was, etc. We even went back to one of the apartments a second time because I wanted to view it again. She was patient, but also able to move quickly, given that I had to find an apartment in about 2 and 1/2 days!
She negotiated with the property managers for the apartment I settled on in terms of move-in fee, and went above and beyond the call of duty in making the lease come through and my transition a smooth one. Specifically, she did the walk-through for me (since I had already returned to L.A.), and also met me the night I arrived to give me the keys, since the complex closed at 5 PM and I wouldn't arrive from the airport until 7:30 PM.
I would highly recommend Erin for her knowledge of the DC and Virginia areas; her combination of patience but also ability to move swiftly/quickly to make things happen; and the service she demonstrated to me. I am grateful to have a beautiful apartment in Arlington, Virginia--I could not have found this apartment on my own, coming from L.A. It was a quick hunt, and we were able to make it happen. She even arranged for me to pro-rate the last week of the month, so that I could get set up before starting work.
Thank you Erin!!
