A&S Realty has 60+ years of experience renting apartments in Downtown Boston....we KNOW Boston rentals! We will work with property owners to ensure your rates are competitive with current market conditions and come up with a customized pricing and market strategy for your apartment. In fact, we were the first real estate agency in Back Bay to specialize in apartment rentals back in the 1960's.
Our team of highly experienced rental agents use technology to drive our listings to the top of searches. We utilize tools such as high quality photography, virtual 360 tours, YouTube, and social media to create an immersive experience for potential tenants. And rest assured that your apartment will be advertised on the most popular apartment rental websites and databases such as BostonMove.com, Zillow, Trulia, Hotpads, Facebook Marketplace, & even the MLS. Our network of syndication ensures your apartment listing is in front of the most potential tenants.
When it comes to reputation, our exceptional online reviews from past customers build credibility and trust with potential renters. Our agents have a curated approach to working with clients that is both relaxed, yet highly effective. Clients feel comfortable knowing they are in good hands. We will work with both landlord & tenant to ensure your rental relationship starts on the right foot.
