What our customers say about us

Laura, our agent was very helpful, friendly, and most importantly available to us throughout the whole process. With 3 animals finding an apartment to rent was a bit complicated, but Laura provided us with several good options in various districts and styles. When we toured the city with her, she gave us honest opinions and provided great info about not just the apartments themselves, but also the surrounding areas. What I really liked, was that she did not hesitate to help us with issues not included in the contract; she suggested a place to buy cheap good bikes, gave us suggestions for places to eat/not to eat, and explained the recycling system to us. Although using their full market search was quite expensive, it seems the price of one month's rent is the norm for any apartment locating service in the area. I would definitely recommend Riva Rentals to my friends and family.
