About Us

In the spring of 1991, as a recent college grad with a new job, I began the search for my first “Real Apartment.” What I encountered was one of the most difficult and time consuming tasks I’d ever undertaken. I tried the free apartment search companies, but still didn’t find what I really wanted. I certainly didn’t want to settle for whatever came along. I spent the better part of a month poring over the classifieds and making phone calls, usually only to find out that the apartment advertised was no longer available.

There really had to be a better way.

A few years later, Apartment Detectives was born. Based on the principle that people deserve to be able to move without headaches, I developed a streamlined search technique that can provide better results in one day than most people have in a month.

I compiled an extensive database of rental properties in the area, and met and formed relationships with property managers. Today, that principle remains the driving force behind Apartment Detectives. Although Apartment Detectives has grown, our philosophy still remains the same: We take care of one customer at a time.
