How Does AptAmigo’s Apartment Locating Service Work?
Renters too often get left in the cold when it comes to traditional real estate. Because the most common type of real estate agent makes money from buying and selling properties (you’ve seen the tv shows!), few companies establish a sustainable system for rentals. Agents tend to perceive rentals as unprofitable and not worth the effort.
That’s why, even when a brokerage does offer support for rentals, you won’t receive the same quality of help as someone looking to buy.
AptAmigo disrupts the traditional real estate system by focusing exclusively on rentals, especially luxury apartments in major cities across the US. When you reach out to us for help, you gain an entire team of local experts waiting to support you at every stage of the process.
Your Dedicated Apartment Locator Will Treat You Like a VIP
After you reach out to us, an apartment locator will contact you. They’ll gather information about your preferences, and, yes, you can be as picky as you want. Looking for a dog park nearby? We can help. Coworking space? Check. Floor-to-ceiling windows? We’ve got you covered.
Once your agent builds your profile, they will search for apartments that match your criteria as closely as possible, put a list of potential buildings and units together, and then share it with you.
You can approve or reject any locations on your list, and once you give the go ahead, our team will start scheduling your tours. Your job: sit back and relax.
On your touring day, a touring agent, also your new BFF, will hang out with you the entire time. If you can’t show up in person, no problem; your tours can take place virtually. Your personal agent for the day will help you take notes, ask questions, offer feedback, and walk you through the process.
To top it all off, for in person tours, they’ll pay for your Ubers or Lyfts, buy you coffee, and even stop for lunch or snacks along the way!
As soon as you choose the building of your dreams, you can apply.

How Do Apartment Locators Get Paid?
But, you ask, how do apartment locators make money for all of that free labor? Like all real estate agents, an apartment locator’s income comes from commissions when sales close or leases are signed. In this case, when a client signs a lease, the building pays AptAmigo a commission.
So, while our clients pay nothing, the buildings they choose to live in pay a small amount to fill their rental units. For buildings, this system means they can fill their apartments faster and avoid losing money on empty spaces. In the end, everyone wins!
