I was surprised to see some bad reviews

I was surprised to see some bad reviews on this company because I was very happy with them. I signed up, got my properties almost everyday by going online for about a week. I found a great apartment in the Greater Northeast that is cheaper than I was paying and nicer. I needed to move quick and my buddy reccomended them to me since he and his wife used them last year. Sorry some of you dont feel the same, guess you cant please everybody.

SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!

DO NOT USE! SAVE YOUR MONEY! None of them promising places in the newspaper for locators will be there when you sign up. Any of them you see will never show up. They won't refund you if you find a place without using their service like they say they do. Locators will not call you back when you try to discuss getting the refund with them. Don't listen to them when they say you have to follow it like they want you to. All that means is you have to ask for an updated list EVERY day. So if...view more you have a life and miss a day, you're not 'following the program'. If you think they are going to ""help you find a place"" then think again. They will simply give you a short list of properties and then youre on your own. You're better off spending $.75 for a newspaper than $200 for this crap.\rview less

Total Scam!! :(

I was looking for an apartment in Philadelphia for a couple of weeks and saw an ad on Craigslist for a one bedroom apartment in Northern Liberties for $500. Sounded perfect. I left a message and someone called me back from Locators explaining how they had thousands of listings, would help me until I found just what I was looking for, and had plenty of properties in my price range. I was skeptical about paying the 150 but decided to go for it, since I was having such a hard time, and pa...view moreid them. I was so excited to see the listings, and when I went on the website, total disappointment!! They sent me about 600 listings (in the worst neighborhoods) of which only 2 where in my price range . I told the representative no more than $500 (I'm a college student) and he sent me from 0-1000. There are NO PICS, you have to print up a code sheet to read the descriptions, and you need a magnifying glass to go through the listing!! A total headache!! When I called the next day, they gave me the worst run-around (completely different attitude from when they were convincing me to sign up) and the one representative from processing told me I'll put your search down to 700, but don't go telling any of your friends we can do that!! What the heck?? Isn't that what I paid 150 dollars for?? Horrible!!view less

Scammed me, Refused Refund

My husband is leaving for a deployment with the military, and I was trying to move toward family in PA with my kids and dogs. They told me they were sending me a list of 4-8 pages in Cumberland Co. When I got it, Dauphin Co was included (most places in the city where a bullet proof vest would be necessary with lease). The ones that were in the area I requested did not allow pets, even though I clearly stated I needed pet friendly places ONLY. There was ONE place that was in my price ra...view morenge and said it allowed pets AND they would cover the fee. When I called, the company (a property management company) informed me that pets were not allowed at that property and that they do not advertise through Locators and would be looking into that. I called Locators to tell them they scammed me by providing me with a list of properties - none of which fit the criteria they said they'd be putting in. The woman told me to not tell land lords that I have dogs, but to bring a picture of them and explain after seeing the property that they mean a lot to me and hope they change their minds and refused me a refund. I disputed it with my credit card company and won, but I'd like to save everyone else the hassle! Don't do it - it was a waste of time and money and a huge stressor to a struggling military family just trying to get by.view less

Home in time for Christmas

I was looking for a place to rent close to Philly to move me and my wife Angie since we're expecting our first in a few months. I really wanted to find a rent to own house since I don't have the money to straight buy right now. A buddy of mine told me about this company that searches for properties called Locators, and I gave it a shot. I told them I needed two bedrooms in Bucks county, although Montgomery county would also work if necessary. I got a pretty big list: over a hundred. No...view moret everything worked for me, but I called the ones that did, Angie and I made some appointments, and we found this cool little rancher in Doylestown. The landlady was really nice, and even knocked that fee Locators charged off my rent. With any luck, we'll own that house in two years. \r
\r
The process was painless and simple, and we're in a house in time enough to celebrate Christmas in style. Thanks a bunch.\r

as two poor students, we loved Locators !

My boyfriend and I registered with them about a month ago because we needed to find a place by January 1st and it needed to be cheap because we are both going to school at U of P. Locators gave us all the places they had for under $900 in University City. We did not find what we were looking for the first time out like I have read about with them, but we did find something last week that we just love! We will have 2 bedrooms, a great yard with a firepit, parking and I got to take my 2 ...view morecats for $825 a month. We could not be happier\r

Thieves. They get no stars

I signed up for this service a few years ago. I was told I could use it at any time. I paid $200 dollars . Now when I try to use it to look for a new appartment ,I am told I never registered. They somhow have all my information, but no record of me giving them the registration fee. Total scam. Beware. $200 bucks later wish I did.
