Looking for a rental agent in San Francisco

I am looking for a rental agent in San Francisco, but I'm confused about how they work. I am looking for the equivalent of a realtor -- someone who has access to all the listings, and will show me various properties (regardless of who owns them) until I find one I like. Does this exist for renting, and do you have any recommendations for someone who does this work? [more inside]

house a vs house b, cage match!

A tale of two houses: House owned by agency A - our first choice in a rental. House owned by agency B - our second, but still cool choice. We've been offered House B (small applause). House A, however, is being held up in the approval process, because my boyfriend's old landlord wont verify that he rented from them. Guess who the landlord is? [more inside]

No credit check rentals -- what's the deal?

I'm househunting (for rent) and sometimes I'll see on Craigslist a place that says "no credit check / no security deposit", even for fairly nice looking houses. This seems like it would attract all the deadbeat renters who can't get approved elsewhere. Why would a landlord/mgmt company risk losses on the house this way? Should I be extra alert when dealing with such a listing?

Shiny, tiny new apartment in Manhattan or affordable charm in Brooklyn?

Another NYC Real Estate Question: the SO and I, who have always lived in charming smallish walk-ups with leaky tubs/peeling paint in Queens-like proximity to 'the big city,' have been seduced by the siren song of new construction downtown. With their pre-opening rent breaks, brand-new appliances, and convenience to both work and play, these "luxury buildings" appear to offer a whole new standard of living at an attractive price. However, ... [mi] [more inside]
