Eh, not so awesome

It took days before someone called me about the email I sent, and it was only after I called them and talked to someone about finding a apt for my brother. The guy I talked to seemed disinterested. He said he'd look into some places and get back to me later that day. It wasn't until the next day that he contacted me, at almost 5, with only a couple of locations. It seemed like he just quickly looked up a few that I had already looked at. I've heard great things about Lucas but i'd recommend austin area apartment locators.

A+ Experience

I just can't say enough good things about Martha. We were a difficult client to place but Martha was able to find a place within our budget within the area we wanted to live. She worked tirelessly returning our phone calls and emails within moments of receiving them.

If we decide to move again we'll be giving Martha and Greenlight Locating a call. Thanks for everything!

what a great experience

Martha was awesome! We moved to Austin from CA and were dreading the long-distance apartment search. Luckily Martha is a ROCKSTAR and the whole process was simple and quite enjoyable.

In the weeks preceding our visit we would frequently forward Martha batches of craigslist postings for apartments that had the amenities we were looking for (we must have sent her close to 50). When we flew down here to find an apartment Martha had prepared a list of similar apartments all around the city. She happily drove us from property to property and as an added bonus she had a great relationship with the leasing personnel at many of the properties we visited. She worked very hard and found us the perfect apartment!

We will definitely use Martha if we need to move again!

Greenlight locating rocks!

We were in a situation where we needed to move fast but could not get to Austin to view properties in person. A friend had utilized Martha for the same reason and recommended that I contact her. What a blessing! Within a week of conversations we found the perfect place! We are so happy with our location and the convenience that Greenlight locating provided. We just could not have gotten it done without them! Thank you Greenlight!

Wonderful Experience

This service will help you find a place fast!! i just moved out to Austin 3 weeks ago and I had no problem with finding a great apartment at the price and location that i preferred. I met with an agent named, Lucas Lee, at greenlight who was very professional and knowlegeable about the area i was interested in. I was very impressed with his ability to locate something exclusive for me.. I also am very happy with my decision to use greenlight. Best of all, This is service is a FREE service to renters in need of an apartment... i highly recommend it. Marcus

Best Rental Broker

Hello. Hello.

I am currently moving to Austin, Texas and needed a place to live. A friend recommended Donna from Greenlight and I could not be more satisfied with my experience.

Donna was extremely professional, personable, and proficient. First I met up at her office where we went through a list of available apartments. I then chose the ones I was most interested in and she threw in a couple of suggestions. She then drove me around town and showed me about seven apartments all in one afternoon. Very efficient!

I had a few requests of places that I wanted to visit and she took me to all of them. I was at first daunted because I had never been to Austin but after spending one day with Donna, I felt that I knew the basic pros and cons of all the important neighborhoods in the city.

I have dealt with various rental brokers in New York City, Pittsburgh, and San Juan and Donna has been by far my best experience.

Call MARTHA today! She's the best!

THANK YOU MARTHA!

I was a little scared when all the ""good"" listings kept getting scooped up before we could even look at them. Thanks to you staying up late on a Friday night, we were able to be the FIRST people to look at a house that did not even last until lunch time on Saturday. That house ended up being THE house. I truly appreciate your dedication to us and your constant professionalism. The house you found us was a gem, but the real jewel here is you! May the Lord continue to bless you and your business.

Very good locating service

Despite a disappointing experience with a different locating agency, I decided to give Greenlight a shot. My experience with Greenlight was eons better. Martha helped us find a cool apartment at a very good price, even though we had some requests that really restricted the choices. For example, we required wood floors in the living areas. Not easy to find at our price range. Martha found us a good selection anyway and then toured each place with us. Before our tour, she sent us info on each location so we could narrow things down to those we are most interested in. Martha was nice, energetic, and enthusiastic. Our tour was quick and efficient, Martha already had everything mapped out before we even arrived at the office. A few questions and we were off. We found the place we will move into that day. We haven't moved just yet, but I am excited. Oh, and Martha was very honest about the complexes and areas of town. No telling us ""oh, this part of town is just wonderful!"" if it wasn't. I really appreciated that.
So, Martha was great and when we eventually move (I am hoping to stay a few years!) we will ask for her help again.

Martha Bowles is the Best!

My son and I just finished a very busy weekend in Austin on the hunt for west campus student housing for the fall. I saw Greenlight Locating on the internet and read their reviews, which led me to Martha. She was very efficient and had our day mapped out with the locations we would be touring. Martha was able to get us everywhere we needed to go and move us along at a pace we were comfortable with, and all with a very upbeat and bubbly personality. She was truly a lifesaver for our mission to find housing. And at the end of the day we found a very desirable apartment that I know my son will be happy with ... thank you so much, Martha!

The best locaters in town

I had 30 days to find a new living place because my landlord needed my studio for his brother who was moving back to Texas from Hawaii. I work two jobs, had no time and the weather in February was super rainy. I was in a tight spot!
Lucas Lee at Greenlight rocks! He returned my calls right away and he worked with my schedule to show me what was available. I love where I live. The location, the space, my neighbors are all wonderful.
In the near future I'll be ready to buy a home. Lucas, I'll be calling you. Thanks again for your time and good energy. Great job!

Most efficient and professional locating service!

Right off the bat she welcomed me to Austin, asked for my likes/dislikes, and created a file for me BEFORE i stepped foot in her office. Two days later I was checking out the list she sent me online of places she thought I may like. On the day of our hunt we didn't waste time filling out forms and making appointments, we just dove right in. After seeing a couple places she was able to get a sense of my style and didn't waste my time showing me what I obviously wouldn't like. Btw, she worked with me during HER personal vacation and even cancelled her personal appointment to make sure I saw everything available. She knew I was only in town for the day and that meant a lot to me. She even provided a bag to keep all those brochures in one place as well as a sheet to compare any top choices. She was so down to earth and very knowledgeable about locations and properties. After 10 yrs of moving/renting, this is by far the best company I have worked with. It was actually fun and that's how it should be when finding a new home! Thanks Martha!!

Martha Bowles rules!

My husband and I were on a very tight timeline to find a home to rent and Martha made it possible. Always there, whether by email, text, or phone to answer all my questions. Helped us get through the hurtles we had with no problem at all & helped us & our pets find a perfect home! Wouldn't recommend anyone else!

Excellent Locators!!

My husband and I relocated to Austin and tried to find a home on our own by calling listing agents. Which didn't pan out. Then we lucked upon Martha Bowles with Greenlight locating and we were saved! Martha had so much energy and was so fun to go house hunting with. She was prompt with finding listings for us to check out before she drove us around to look. All communications were prompt, reliable, and friendly.

I highly recommend Martha Bowles and Greenlight Locating for all you apartment, house, duplex, condo needs. They are the BEST in Austin!!

Great to work with, hooked me up with an excellent place!

I worked with Martha, and had a great experience. I am moving to Austin from out of town, so I didn't know where I wanted to live, other than from what I had read and been told by friends. Martha did a great job of listening to what I was looking for and finding places that were exactly what I wanted... she sent me 15 or so places to learn about, and from there we narrowed it down to 7 that we wanted to visit. But we ended up finishing after the first four: they were so great that after seeing only four I felt I had an incredibly difficult decision in front of me. Martha helped talk me through the benefits and drawbacks of each place (she was very upfront about imperfections, which I really appreciated). And now I am moving into a place that I'm incredibly excited about! I really appreciated it so much... particularly that I feel she was able to guide me through the difficult part of choosing the best areas of town (yet affordable) in spite of my unfamiliarity with Austin.

DON'T LOOK FOR AN APARTMENT WITHOUT THEM!!!

Hi folks. I was just moving back to Austin after getting out of the Army and in desperate need of a good apartment while going to school. I tried for about 2 weeks trying to track down a place of my own, even trying out one other apartment locator, that will not be mentioned (partially because I can't even remember their name), which turned out to be frustratingly unreliable.

Finally, I came upon Greenlight Locating and my luck completely turned around. I got in touch with Lucas almost immediately and was able to set up a meeting the next day.

Lucas had an assortment of apartments ready for me to look at and, since I really had no clue of what I wanted yet, was more than happy to take me to each and every one. By the end of it all I had a terrific apartment at an unbelievable location and for a VERY low price. The apartment was originally well out of my price range, but he gave them a call and managed to find out about a great deal they had going on. Thanks to this I am an ecstatic new Austinite. While working on the pricing and paperwork, Lucas continued to help me through the entire process (I'm pretty much clueless about this kind of stuff) and the whole thing turned out to be a very smooth transition for me.

I can say with ABSOLUTE confidence that Lucas got me an apartment I never would've been able to get on my own. I cannot stress enough how much I recommend this company and the terrific service they offer.

Great service, low pressure

Barron at Greenlight Locating has helped me find a place for my friend to live, and rent out my own place to others. He's courteous, professional, and perhaps best of all in a realtor/locator, he doesn't try and push you to get into a place that's not right for you. I'll be recommending Greenlight to anybody who's looking for a place to rent in Austin.

USE THIS LOCATING SERVICE!

I have worked with Martha Bowels from Greenlight twice now. Each time she helped me find an amazing apartment. The first time I worked with her I was living out of the country, and we were able to take care of everything through emails. She even went to the properties I was interested in to take pictures for me. The second time I worked with her she took the time to drive me around to all of the places we selected, and made sure I was comfortable with my selection (even though that meant more work for her). I have already recommended Greenlight to some friends, and all have been hppy.

a big help!

i worked twice with greenlight locating; both times with Jennifer S.; she was outstanding.

the first time i was in a hurry to find a place and they were fast and helpful; the second time was for a friend, and he loves his place now and the location in 78704 area is ideal.

both times she was knowledgeable and professional. she was quick to respond and helpful! as someone that has lived in austin for eight year and works as an architect, i found the locating experience to be very enlightening and matched my understanding of the city of austin.

while i believe the website could stand a once over, the service is top notch and the office visit made me feel at ease.

i would recommend them to anyone and definitely use them again.

A Terrific Experience

Jennifer Stewart and the rest of the Greenlight team were a pleasure to work with. Jennifer took a significant amount of time learning about my preferences and crafting a set of apartments that would meet all my needs. She took the time to drive me around and show me a variety of properties over two days in Austin. I believe that I found a great apartment that meets all of my needs and sets me up for a great living experience in Austin.
