"Zaya really helped me out last year when I was looking for a new place. She had a lot of places to show in the various areas I wanted to live and she happily toured me from place to place until we found the right one. Once we found the spot for me, she helped me through everything to get it locked in. If I'm looking for an apartment in her service area again, I'll definitely give her a call first."
"I was excited to find Rental Girl in my search for a new apartment in Echo Park. Their listings really represent their properties well. It was a pleasure to work with Zaya, who guided us through the whole renting process and kept us up to date on our application, etc. She is very professional and a joy to work with."
"Zaya is wonderful! She went above and beyond to get us into our dream house!
Friendly and professional.. I would definitely recommend The Rental Girls to everyone!"
"I had a great experience working with Zaya. Zaya is extremely professional, punctual, communicative and also very friendly and pleasant! From seeing the apartment to signing the lease, it took 3-4 days, and all along the way, Zaya guided me on what to do and what to expect. It was a smooth and thorough process, and I would recommend her without hesitation!"
"My girlfriend and I really enjoyed going through Zaya and all the other people at Rental Girl (all of whom seemed completely on top of EVERYTHING). Through them we got an amazing Victorian in Angelino Heights that's over a 100 years old. Not only that, but the place has such a good landlord who keeps things so nice that everyone asks us if we're the first ones to ever live here!"
"Zaya is awesome. She helped us find a great place, submit our application, and secure the swankiest pad I have yet rented. Her friendliness and great attitude are eclipsed only by her knowledge of real estate and professional abilities. If you need someone who gets the job done, contact Zaya. She won't let you down."
"My room mate and I first met Zaya from The Rental Girl when we searching around the east side of LA for the perfect place. We met her while she was showing a place in Highland Park and we all immediately hit it off. She told us that she would keep us in the loop for other opening listings, and she did! We fell in LOVE with our new house in Echo Park. Zaya worked so hard around my busy traveling schedule, and she made signing the lease easy and effortless. She even worked with me via phone and email while we were off working in the Bahamas! The
Rental Girls are down to earth, lovely, and really good at what they do. I won't bother going thru anyone else next time I move!"
"From start to finish, our experience with Zaya at The Rental Girl was really positive. She was cheerful and reliable, very professional. We had been looking on our own for a couple of weeks and were a bit discouraged. Though not always, it often seemed like standards were not high enough. (I'm referring to clean, cared for premises, responsive landlord, stuff like that.) All that changed when we started working with Zaya. The apartments and houses that we looked at showed a good balance between price and quality of living space. Once we decided on a place, the final process of credit checking and filling out forms was facilitated well and seemed so easy. We love our new home and highly recommend The Rental Girl to help you with your house or apartment hunting."
"My roommate and I used the Rental Girl to get our place in Echo Park. We worked with Zaya, who was fantastic. Everything about our experience was great. Looking for an apartment sucks, but they keep things short and sweet. There's no fee to search, but there is an application fee. Luckily, we got the apartment so it was worth the cost for us. I'd recommend this site to anyone looking for an apartment. They have a solid listing and the pictures and details seemed to be pretty on point with what we saw when we showed up. Definitely worth a look. Good luck!"
"Working with the rental girl was easy. Most of the apartments through the rental girl are great properties - they basically screen them for you. It's like shopping at a cool vintage store as opposed to picking through Goodwill or Value Village for hours. Zaya facilitated everything between the landlord and myself, and in a timely manner. Love my apartment. Great landlord too. Thanks Zaya!"
"The Rental Girl website really made my search easy. I was very lucky to have stumbled across this site. I just knew the area I wanted to be in and the agent that represents the area helped me to narrow everything down for me. The site answers pretty much everything you may have to ask. The pictures are very helpful and hold to the truth. The properties are well maintained by the landlords. I would utilize them again if I decide to move to another area in the future for any reason.
Thanks again Zaya!"
"After a difficult summer looking for a house, my husband and I were at the end of our ropes. We were using Westside Rentals and occasionally using Craigslist, but both of them were pretty dismal. Adding to this was the fact that we have a unique financial situation and it was really hard to find a place. My husband found The Rental Girls and I was blown away by the amount of pictures they post, especially Ellie and Zaya. Lucky us, those two girls cover the area we were looking for, Silverlake and Echo Park. We went to a few of Ellie's showings and found her very friendly and professional. None of those places worked out, but we kept on looking. Then I saw THE PLACE on Zaya's listing page. I texted her about it and she promptly replied and confirmed our appointment.
We really wanted the place and Zaya was very encouraging. The application process was easy and straight forward. Zaya kept us posted throughout the process via text message, which I really appreciated. She really helped us with our special situation and is obviously very thorough in checking references. The whole time I felt like I had someone on my side, not the somewhat antagonistic relationship I have had with other prospective landlords or rental agencies.
When we got the news that the place was ours, Zaya made an appointment with us for a comprehensive lease signing and really went through everything on the lease. I liked this because it gave us an opportunity to ask questions and clarify with a third party, something that's not always an option. At the walkthrough, we all went through the house with a checklist and Zaya took pictures of anything that was damaged. She later emailed them to us so there is a third party record of everything, therefore protecting our damage deposit. Wow.
Zaya and the Rental Girls got us into the best house we have ever lived in. I highly recommend them for prompt, friendly service, patience and an all-around cool vibe. They put a lot of care into what they're doing, for sure. Thanks a ton!"
"Zaya from The Rental Girl helped me find my loft and I am so happy she did! She was great to work with and the whole process was totally smooth. They also, have some of the best listings around. 5 stars for sure."
"My husband and I worked with Zaya at The Rental Girl to find our current apartment. We were living in Oakland at the time and had just returned from a trip down to LA to find our new home when I was desperately searching The Rental Girl for one last hope. The apartment had just been listed and we knew that it was the perfect fit... even though we couldn't come all the way back to LA to check it out in person. We immediately contacted Zaya and submitted our application. I then, of course, proceeded to contact Zaya every day, sometimes twice a day, to get her everything she needed for the application or to just tell her how much we desperately wanted this apartment! I really did feel bad, like I was being just an awful person, harassing this poor girl, but she was super nice and I really believe she did everything she could to make sure we got our dream apartment.
Zaya was extremely helpful and nice throughout the entire process. She even took additional photos for us since we couldn't see the apartment in person, and really just made us feel comfortable in our decision and made it as easy as possible for us to rent the apartment we wanted.
As far as The Rental Girl in general, I love that they sift through all the crap that's out there and offer only the places someone would actually want to live in.
If we ever move we will definitely check with The Rental Girl first."
"I loved working with Zaya from Rental Girl. I had been looking for the place that was in the right neighborhood, the right size, and the right price.
Zaya helped me find all three. She was thorough, kind, and gracious, and it was a pleasure working with her. If I move again to another place in L.A., Zaya will be the first person I'll look to."
"I just used the Rental Girl to find an apartment, and my experience was great. I am absolutely in the love with the apartment, and our rental girl, Zaya, was so nice and so helpful. I will definitely use the Rental Girl next time I move."
"We were trying to get a place in Los Angeles, my friends from college, and we saw this place from the Rental Girl, Zaya in particular, and we absolutely loved the place. We knew we really wanted it.
So Zaya, our rental girl really helped us out and kept us updated with the information and what the owner wanted at any given time. She helped keep us a head of the curve of other renters trying to get that place.
She met us and got to know us and I think she saw that this place was a perfect fit for us. I highly recommend the rental girl. Personable, on time, and most of all THEY GET THINGS DONE!"
"My boyfriend and I recently moved from North Carolina to Los Angeles and we had about a week in early May to line up an apartment for a move for the middle of June. We found a Rental Girl property in Echo Park that we really loved on Craigslist and called Zaya the next day. She immediately responded and we agreed to meet the following day to see the property. The one we saw was actually for immediate rent (and we weren't moving for a month)but Zaya was extremely helpful and told us about an apartment in the same building that would be coming open in June but hadn't been listed yet and even got clearance from the tennant to show us the property the next day (since we were on a tight deadline and couldn't wait until she was out to view it).
To work with us on our very short deadline (we were catching a flight!) Zaya worked around the clock to get us and our dogs approved by the landlord and call our references and it paid off- we were signing a lease about a day and a half later!
We really appreciated her commitment to helping us with all our time constraints and we're very happy with our new apartment! We would definitely recommend their service and won't hesitate to use them again should we decide to move in the future. They took a lot of the stress out of what could have been a very harrowing apartment hunt."
"I am a bit OCD when it comes to apartment hunting or anything along those lines that would involve a big investment and I can whole heatedly say that the rental girl was the best way to go! I just signed a lease with Zaya, who was friendly, understanding, professional and made the experience the best it could be! All documents were signed electronically which was helpful for us since my roommate is out of state at the moment. She made the whole process easy and we literally signed the lease 2 days after seeing the property!"
"Who says moving is hard. Not when you have a Rental Girl like Zaya..
Thank you Zaya, You have made it so easy for my husband and me to move to Los Angeles. All we had to do is tell her what our budget was and she was so on it. She gave us options to choose from and what made her so special is that she was so patient with our needs. It was like having a personal shopper for an apartment. VIP service with a smile, how sweet is that? The good thing is that we didn't even have to pay her... I can tell she really loves what she does....
Thank you, thank you, thank you Zaya for making it so easy.. We love our new place."
"I was moving to LA from Atlanta and needed to find an apartment in a 4 day period. After many disappointing viewings of sketchy places in sketchy neighborhoods, it was a breath of fresh air to work with Zaya. I found it extremely easy to get in touch with her. If she didn't answer her phone, she replied to texts and emails very promptly. She was thorough and very professional.
The listings they provide are also very high quality. For working professionals that would prefer well-maintained buildings with respectful tenants, this is the rental agency."
