  • Ask lots of questions -- the right questions.
  • Understand your clients' needs. This is true for all clients, but it's even more critical when clients have special needs.
  • Understand what "accessible" means to your client and show only properties and neighborhoods that are truly accessible.

Moving sucks. It sucks a lot. And that’s what you get to do after the long and laborious task of finding a place to live.

Having lived in the area I’m moving to for most of my life, I thought it’d be pretty easy to find an apartment.
