Can anyone recommend a good realtor in the Clayton NC area? We wish to rent for the first year or so while we get to know our way around.

I have seen several listed but unfortunately not all deal with rentals.

We would be interested in a 3BR townhouse/condo/single family home in a community with access to a pool and fitness center.

Much appreciated!

You might have better luck by finding a rental on your own by trying many of the online sites that specialize in that sort of thing. Or Craigslist. I have used both to advertise my rentals and get good results as a landlord, so I imagine there are good choices as a renter.

Most realtors won't waste their time showing rentals.

My first year in Real Estate, I did work with renters and SF, it really wasn't a waste of time. I did it to help them and then a year or so later, when they were ready to buy, they called me. See? It wasn't a waste of time for me and it was nice to help them! However, I have become too busy for that.

My suggestion would be if you can't find a rental on your own, to contact a property management company, as they are the ones that handle rentals. If you do contact a Realtor, you may find one of the brand new Agents have time to help.

Most of the apt. and rental companies actually pay Realtors a small "finder's fee" for bringing renters to them. It could be anywhere from $50 to $300. And for new Agents, it pays for gas!
