Juliet is the name of the agent assigned to me. I have so many criterias for the apartment i want. A pool, laundry facility, specific sqft, specific area etc. Juliet works with me patiently, making sure i have everything i want or mostly at least. And also because i do not have SSN nor a credit score yet (i am an incoming international student to UT), she is working very hard for me so i can get approved for the lease (using my bank statements as proof, using a friend as a guarantor etc). The numerous videos/pics uploaded to google drive, back and forth emails trying to secure the lease, visiting the apartment management office to work out my securing the lease, guiding me in filling out the application, everything is proving that Juliet is really a good agent. She works painstakingly and patiently. And best of all their service is totally free for prospective tenant, since it is being paid by the apartment management. If you are an incoming international student to Austin, i strongly recommend you to use Housing Scout service.

I was fortunate to have Daniel Aceituno as my Housing Scout as I was looking for a place to stay in West Campus. They were organized, knowledgeable, and always displayed a postive demeanor which helped greatly during my frantic search for a place to stay. They were always ready to answer my questions and I can’t thank them enough for the hard work and effort they gave to searching for a place that met my criteria.

Housing scout was simple and perfect. I was so fortunate to have met Justin who was my leasing agent from Housing Scout. He was so easy to talk to, extremely polite and cooperative and made me feel confident in what I wanted. He would always present me with options 24/7 until we found an apartment I liked 100%. If it wasn’t for Justin, I would had compromised for something less, but because how determined he was in helping me, I found exactly what I wanted. I couldn’t have found my apartment if it wasn’t for Justin, he is just the best. I hope you get the chance to work with Justin if you do decide to do business with Housing Scout, he can help you with anything you need!
