I've lived in Boston my whole life, and NONE of the five apartments I've lived in were gotten through a realtor... I always try tem, but have always ended up finding something better or cheaper on my own.
I've had good luck with craigslist, and one apartment came through MIT's housing board. otherwise it has just been looking through the Boston Globe and word of mouth.
I've never heard of grandcentralapartments.com either, and it sounds a little sketchy... What neighborhood are you looking at?
Yeah, anything that sounds too good to be true probably is.
I'm looking around the Beacon Hill, Fennway, Jamica Plain area.
I was a bit wary of this agency because when I told the person that I would look into it and get back to them she was trying to sign me up right there; she started pressuring me to get in touch with her by the end of the day because my move in date is so close (6/1).
