Broker hunting in Seattle
March 20, 2014 1:18 PM   Subscribe

I'm doing a 3-month internship in Seattle this summer and I'm looking for an apartment. My budget is $2-3k/month. I think it would be too big a hassle to find a place myself (I'm only interested in apartments that are walking distance from the office), so I'd like to find a broker instead. How do I go about doing this? Thanks!

Are you looking for a fully furnished Executive Apartment or Executive Suite?

Or something unfurnished?

Preferably furnished.

Here's another.

When we needed an apartment for a few months, we used one of these places and they found us a place in an apartment complex. If there's one near where you're going to work, call them directly and see if they have an executive suite. Our complex has a two bedroom one that we can rent for $100 per night for guests.

We got our first apartment through Windermere (the broker was paid for by the employer).

Is this close enough to the office?

Not a broker, but it's very walking-distance to downtown / SLU.

I stayed here for a couple months (furnished). It was ok. My company set it up but you could probably lease through the front desk.

You might want to try AirBnb. There are plenty of sublets there. Seattle doesn't have many rental brokers - only for really high end places for long term leases. I think Findwell used to do this.

Really, airbnb will give you hundreds of options with one click.
