Landlords and rental apartment operators!


I will be happy to inspect and, subject to my finding it to represent value, promote your offer. I will be even happier to receive 10% for my efforts. I will not tolerate, however, the practice of ADDING my humble commission to the cost of your units. To my horror I learned recently that some of you do just that. Russian landlords - be aware that it is NOT a common practice to charge extra if you came eg. from my site. Quite to the contrary. Clear enough?  - pv
