Utilization of an apartment locator for my needs

I had a need to use an apartment Locator throughout my investing life, They are sharp when it comes to understanding the management side of things. I would say there most specialized in Greystar, Lincoln, and a few other companies that portray greatness across the board. I had one talk to the owner of a property directly, and give me a price before apartment was ever listed. I got a great deal and saved a ton.
