What is it with rental agencies? Or am I to be labeled as a security seeker? Getting an appartment in Vancouver is going to be a last minute affair. Tried to find residence for the first time in september 06. Reaction varied from 'no answer' to: get back to us in a few months time..
Tried again the last couple of days. Still mostly zero reaction. Points are scored by Bruce Ward Realty, though. They at least reacted positively, be it with a motherly style referral to an earlier mail (I had all forgotten about):
hello tom - happy new year and thanks for keeping us in mind for your upcoming stay here in vancouver!- however - *sorry* - its still too early for availability/bookings (remember - "approximaltey 2.5 weeks prior to arrival date...") -
Keep the faith.
