Here's a little bit of information about us, and what we're looking for:
Apartment Wanted for Engaged Couple – Exceptional Tenants
Community: Preferably close to the subway, or at least easily accessible by the TTC. (East of Dufferin, South of Eglinton, West of Woodbine)
Details: Hi – we’re Daniel & Michelle and we’re looking for an apartment to rent in Toronto for September 1st, 2010.
We’ve been living together for over 5 years now and we both have steady, well-paying jobs that we enjoy; Michelle works downtown in IT for an actuarial and insurance consulting firm, and Daniel works in IT/music from home.
We're looking to move into a clean, well-maintained apartment (but no high-rise buildings nor basements) where everything works properly. We always pay rent on time (sometimes early, but never late) and are exceptional at taking care of where we live. Ideally, we'd like something that has been recently renovated, has in-suite washer and dryer and no carpet, but we're staying open… … …
We're neat-freaks, very organized and super clean – we clean our house on a daily basis. We have a zero-tolerance for vermin and pests of any kind (no mice, no rats, no cockroaches, no bugs of any kind at all) and we won’t rent a place with a history of vermin, even if it was years ago. We’re not open to that at all. On the flip side, you can be assured that you’ll be renting to exceptionally clean tenants who will not attract any pests or vermin to your property. We are constantly cleaning and maintaining our home to ensure that this is never an issue – we're neat freaks.
A location close to the subway would be ideal for us, or at least very easily accessible by TTC. We don't smoke nor do any drugs of any kind and we don't have any late-night parties or anything of the sort. Of course, we can provide excellent references if necessary. You can also find out more about us by reading this blog.
We also have three small dogs (not much bigger than the size of a cat) that mean the world to us. You can see photos of our dogs by looking at articles tagged 'dogs' to find out more about them.
All three of our dogs are hypo-allergenic non-shedding dogs and we are very responsible pet owners. Our oldest is Lorenzo (Maltese x Yorkie) at 4 years, then Cachita (Bichon x Cocker Spaniel) at 3.5 years, and Javier (Bichon x Yorkie) is the youngest at 2 years old. All three dogs are neutered/spayed, licensed and up-to-date with shots, vet visits, etc. They only eat 100% certified-organic raw food so they’re exceptionally well behaved and their pee actually fertilizes the lawn (not burns it). Daniel works from home most of the time so he is home with them during the day, otherwise, they are very well behaved dogs when we’re gone (and we leave them in a crate for their safety anyways – it's their "den"). Most of the time though, we prefer to take them everywhere with us, whenever possible – we're inseparable! Our dogs have travelled to many places with us and have stayed in numerous hotels across Canada – we’ve never had a problem with any of them. :-) Simply put, anywhere we’ve rented or stayed (housing, hotels, lodges, etc.) our dogs have never been a problem; plus, they don’t shed, so it’s easy to keep things clean all the time!
Our dogs only bark when they're scared of something (and sometimes when they meet new people) but they're normally super quiet dogs – barking has never been an issue. Plus, we always offer potential landlords the opportunity to meet our dogs beforehand; our dogs always come along for the ride with us when we’re viewing apartments, so it’s as easy as coming out to the car to meet them…
