I have called them a few times based on Craigslist ads that seem too good to be true. Each time they say that they cannot release any information about the properties. Then they push for an $185 fee that is "refundable in 90 days". I

I just called them and when they got to the part about charging me a fee I hung up and started googling. After reading lots of reviews I am convinced this is a scam company. It cracks me up that the good reviews are the exact same wording

DO NOT TRUST THEM. IT IS A SCAM. They promise refunds telling you that it's only a 3% refund rate..what they leave out is that it's only 3% because they deny the refunds. They are smooth talkers that lead you to believe they have wonderful

Unfortunately I was in need a fast rental. My roommate moved her boyfriend in and after 2 months of late night parties, him eating my food and the fighting between those two. I had to get out! I called Locators and spoke with a very nice man who promised to help me get a new place quick! Within a week, I found a really cute 1 Bedroom in Downingtown that I could afford on my own! Now Im sleeping in peace and even got a cat named Sam! Well worth the money.

I have used this company twice in the last three years and was happy both times, I even got a discount for signing up a second time! I really like the fact that I can sign into the database of properties whenever I have a free moment which isnt usually till 10 or 11 at night. My family and I are very happy in our new home in Media.

My three children and I needed to find a place by months end. I was laid off of my job and my ex-husband was not paying any child support. My wonderful landlords dealt with it as long as they could and allowed us to stay in our Springfield home for months rent free. But then they started not being able to pay their own bills with the loss of the rent money and told me I had to find another place to live since I couldnt pay the rent. They actually signed me up with Locators and paid for it! Locators have a $99.00 thirty day program. With money as tight as it is, it was hard to stay in a good school district; $750.00 a month for 2 bedrooms doesnt go far in the high end Delaware county towns. After 2 weeks, I was almost resigned that I would have to move to an area with not so great schools, but then I found a place in Broomall which is a great school district! We moved in a month ago and are very grateful. Thank you to my old Landlords for signing me up with Locators!

I went with this company because they offered the money back guarantee if I didnt find a place to live. I had lost my job that I had for over ten years due to this crappy economy and we needed to downsize to a cheaper place to save money. I liked the fact that I only saw rentals that were in the price range I wanted to look at. I found a place to rent that is owned by the sweetest older couple ever! It used to be his parents place and he just rents it out now and has taken beautiful care of it. So I love the cheaper rent and I love the landlords!

We were looking to get in a better neighborhood because the kids were starting to get older and we wanted a better Group of kids for them to hang out with. We were living in Kensington and since my wifes job requires that she live in Philadelphia, we decided the Northeast was the area best to raise a family after researching it for a while. We registered with Locators since a buddy of mine had used them two different times successfully. I was not interested in searching through the madness of Craigs list. Since we were so particular with the neighborhood that we wanted to live in, it took a little over a month to find what we wanted. We ended up renting a house in Rhawnhurst that fits the bill completely. The wife is happy, the kids are safer and that makes this Dad thankful.

I was looking for a very unique place to live. I am an artist and work from home and need a relaxing and inspirational place to set up my studio. They told me that their specialty was finding just the kind of place I was looking for. The first month, they did have some interesting rentals but nothing that was just right for me. On my 5th week with them, I found the place just like what I had envisioned. Its a 2 Bedroom old carriage house with big old willow trees around it and a creek out back. The ceilings have the really cool exposed wooden beams & the front door is mostly stained glass! The main bedroom which is what I will use for my studio is huge and the view looks right out to the creek. I cant wait to start painting in my new place and know that the perfect living and creation space will inspire me much more than where I have been the last few years. Thank you, thank you, thank you Locators !

I signed up with Locators because my sister in law had used them a few years ago and said they had rental homes that she never saw advertised anywhere else. Since I was not finding anything that I liked in the Daily Times or on Craigs list which is just a nightmare to use! Well she was right! I still didnt find anything I liked the few times I went to their sight online but after about 3 weeks I did and signed a lease for a place in Ridley Park that is perfect, the landlord is willing to do a Rent to own after a year and we are hoping to own this place within five years. Thanks Megan at Locators for helping me with my technical challenges

I absolutely recommend using this company! My company transferred me to Philadelphia from Cleveland, OH. I had 2 weeks notice to move my entire life and find a place to live or lose the promotion chance since it needed to be filled immediately. I saw a Locators ad on Craigs list and they told me their company was perfect for me because I could set up appointments to see the places before I arrived in Philadelphia. I just contacted the places that were available immediately so the day after I arrived I had 5 appointments to look at places. The third place I went to see was just what I was looking for and even reminded me of my old place back in Cleveland! I was only stuck living in a hotel for 3 days and am now happily living in my new Center City apartment, not that I see it often since the new job is insane!

I am a widowed mother of three teenage children. Needless to say money is tight around here. My boss recommended Locators to me because they helped her find a place that was a lot cheaper than she was finding on her own. So I crossed my fingers and signed up for the service. 4 Weeks later we moved into our 3 Bedroom house with a finished attic for my son to have his own space in a nicer part of town than we were before and I am now paying $125.00 less a month than I was before! Maybe we can even get a kitty for the kids now! I don??t ever want to move again but if I do I will absolutely call and use Locators again.

I was relocating for a new job, I was told by Andre that this service was a good one and they would put me in a house, that I asked for at. It is a scam. They put ads in the paper stating that they have places for rent but when you pay for the service then they do not have the same places on the weneedtomove website. If you are looking to relocate do not use them. Go to a realitor or search for yourself. This service is a waste of money and the people who work they lie to maintain and explain their lack of competence.

I was living in Nicetown and I really wanted out! It just was'nt a good area for my newborn son. I needed a 1 or 2 br still in the city. I saw some ads in the Philly Daily News for some company called Locators so I called them up and went to their Philly office and walked out with hundreds of possibles! After about two weeks I took a place in Port Richmond. It was very easy, I didnt have to go to any area I didnt want and I knew which places had the features I needed before going to even see a place! Worked out really well for me!

I spoke to this guy who told me to go the Philly office to register with them, the problem was they close at 5 during the week and I could not get there before that so I had to wait until a Sat to go. I went on 11/7 and met with Andre. He gave me a bunch of different properties to call. When I left the office I sat in my car and called a few of them. I made an appointment with someone to come look at their place right away. I loved it, I loved the price, I loved the owner. I gave her a deposit check on the spot and will be moving in on December 1st. Talk about some fast help!

A few years ago we went with Locators when my husband was transferred to the Philadelphia area. We found a great place where we lived for two years but due to a new arrival in our family ! We needed a bigger place. I called them again and spke to the same person that helped me 2 years ago (This made me feel really good about the company). Peter gave me a "reregistration discount" which was great! Anyway, its been 3 weeks and we just signed a lease on our new 3 bedroom home in Queen Village that is also a rent to own! So instead of just renting, we are paying towards the home being ours! Thanks you, Thank you, Thank you Locators and Pete!

Pros: Found a place for the second time !

We used Locators Inc. about 5 years ago and had a great experience with them. We found a home fast and the money back garantee was no problem. This year we ended up in an emergency situation and once again chose Locators Inc. which was a big mistake. Granted there was a huge amount of listings even though about half of them where rented even if you called them same day or the landlords didnt bother calling back. Also have we been offered properties that are in unlivable conditions and as we complained to the staff of Locators we had been told that the condition of the property is not there problem which seems redundend to me since they are advertised as move in conditions. Move in contdition is not the roof missing, walls torn down or no plumbing installed, also family friendly neighborhood is not being the only house not boarded up on the block or fallen in.

I am very disapointed that our refund has been denied due to the fact that we had to find a house on our own, also did we listen to the representative who had told us in order to get the most updated listing to go online. Apparently that was naive of us to believe him because now its been used against us for a reason of non refund. We were homeless for over a month so even if we wanted there was no adresse they could have mailed the listing to.

Anyhow, the performance of Locators Inc. has been slacking extremely compared to 5 years ago even tho the charges for their services have increased. $129 for sign up + a service fee of just about $25 for each and every change even if its only the price of the properties you are looking for.

I do NOT recommend Locators Inc. at this point, maybe with a changed policy on their end plus more effort serving the costumer to make it worth the money one pays to use the service.
