"Rent-Direct.com greatly benefits both the tenant and the landlord. It enables a renter to bypass brokers thereby avoiding costly brokerage commissions which generally amount to an additional two months' rent or 15% of annual rent. With apartment rents now averaging $2,000 or $2,500 monthly, that's a savings of $3,600 to $5,000 for the consumer. It also benefits prospective tenants by providing them, at a minimal cost, with a constantly updated and lengthy list of available rentals from which to choose. In short, it helps relieve the stress, aggravation, wasted effort and expense associated with locating an apartment in the city and the surrounding region and boroughs."
"Our company, Cartis Corporation, has found Rent-Direct.com to be exceptionally service-oriented for both landlords and tenants. It offers the small landlord ample and economical exposure in the hotly competitive New York City housing market. Through Rent-Direct.com, we have rapidly rented our apartments with no overhead costs. Furthermore, we can rely on the service to direct only qualified prospects to our properties. In that way we minimize the time and expense of showing apartments to unqualified or uninterested prospects. It's little wonder that more than  landlords now trust Rent-Direct.com to help find them new tenants."
"As a small landlord with 350 units in Manhattan, Cartis Corporation applauds Rent-Direct.com for supplying a valuable service to all New Yorkers; to small property owners who benefit from a competitive edge; and to city residents who face the daunting task of finding the right place to live. Rent-Direct.com is clearly the embodiment of entrepreneurial excellence and service to the people of New York."
