Getting to know your potential landlord or tenant has never been easier: just click the button, enter your message, and submit. To establish a personal connection, briefly introduce yourself, explain why you’re interested in the place, and what you will be up to in the city. Make sure you’ve checked the availability calendar and other details, so you don’t waste time asking questions you already have the answer to.
