I inquire about an apartment and I was informed that in order to see it or ask questions I have to fill an application that details and gives certain rights to the realtor. When I ask why I had to release my personal info (since I never dealt with a realtor that does that) he's response was and I quote: "my client wants me to check all info before I schedule anyone to see his home. His time and mine are very valuable and income and credit needs to be confirmed before the fact. This particular apartment is beautiful and we will have no problem renting it. If this apartment interest you, those are his requirements. Have a nice day" Based on this, I will never recommend him or his company. Why will anyone want to sign a contract and release personal info just to see and ask questions?
