My mind has been reeling

and I haven't been sleeping very well. I know it is all due to stress and the fact that we are on the brink of a major change.

We still haven't secured a place to live, but we have found something that will probably work. We were hoping to find a 3 bedroom house and we sort of did but the real estate agent who is in charge of renting promised us pictures 2 weeks ago and still hasn't sent them. Russ has contacted her several times about it and nothing. She promised to send them to us yesterday, but had yet another excuse as to why she couldn't do it. We are more than put out with her and probably won't rent this place because of the way she is treating us. I understand that she is busy, that's not a problem. The fact that she has promised us these pictures numerous times and hasn't sent them is a huge problem. Plus, she has already sent us the forms to fill out as if we are going to send her a huge deposit without seeing the place. I don't want to rent a house for $700 a month without seeing the inside. We are already taking a huge gamble by not physically seeing these places. One of the members of the congregation we will be working with did send us the information for a duplex in town and we are in the process of seeing about it. I did look at it on google maps and it looks pretty nice. It's only two bedroom, though, and that actually makes me want to cry. Financially it is the better decision and I am resigning myself to that fact. We are waiting on a floorplan that they will be sending us tomorrow. He didn't know if he would be able to take pictures or not because the people that live there now are "peculiar" as he put it. Whatever. I'm a little tired of the process and am disappointed that there aren't more options for us.

I'm sorry they aren't being more cooperative with you. (Hugs) I hope this is the worst of it and your move is smooth and trouble free.

Lisa, I think I would ditch the realtor and find another one! Don't settle for a two bedroom if that's not what you want. Can you contact the church and see if there are any realtors in the congregation that could help you find a rent home? Seriosly ditch her though, that is not very professional on her part and you deserve better.
