In case you see any sign board, they are the Realtor in charge of my house before I decided to take over by my self. I am no more working with them and don't bother to contact them because formerly i wanted to sell the house before me and my Lovely Family now decided to rent it out instead of selling it out.
Get back to me so i can forward you the rental application form i would want you to fill out and also do get back to me asap with your picture as well so let me know whom i am renting my house to.
Regards. Roger Peckham
I noticed that in his email, he mentions Www.hotpads.com yet in the text message and previous emails, he stated www.zillow.com . ODD
