Q: What are the benefits of using a real estate agent to find an apartment?
A: Quite simply, it is more difficult to find the ideal apartment without a real estate agent / broker.
When searching for an apartment in the North End, you are competing against hundreds, if not thousands, of others who are looking for almost exactly what you are. By working with a single broker whom you trust and with whom you are comfortable, you will give yourself a competitive advantage over those who are not using an agent or those who are using several. When you establish a relationship with an agent they have a better idea of what you want, and the means to help you find it faster.
