My experience was very different than the first reviewer. When I signed up, there were about 50 listings. Over the next two weeks, maybe another 20 new listings came in. The best part was knowing about new apartments as soon as they hit the market. I went to one place (that I rented) and was amazed to see two brokers there with their clients. Turns out I got the place and didn't pay a penny to a broker. The other people looking at the apartment would have had to pay thousands$$ to get the very same apartment. I've been very happy in the place. I'll use Rent-Direct.com the next time I need to move.

My boyfriend and I signed up for Rent Direct because we did not want to go through a broker. We had awful luck. We looked at a ton of listings and only found 2 apartments we were interested in that were in Manhattan in our price range (although when we spoke with a representative they said there were around 200).

We only found 2 we were interested in and it turns out the listings were wrong. One was listed for the wrong price (it was listed for about twice the real price) and another had a broker fee. What a waste of time!! We called to complain but were told we could only get a refund (they advertise that they are satisfaction guaranteed) if we sent in a copy of the lease.

We did send in a copy, but didn't get a full refund. We paid about $120 and only got $84 back. I called to complain and they said $15 was administrative costs and the rest were taxes.

Do not waste your money or time on rent direct! A lot of the listings were on craigslist. Looking for an apartment is VERY frustrating but Rent Direct will make it an even worse experience.

Do NOT use Rent Direct!!
