Finding an apartment through a reliable agent?

1 post / 0 new

Hello everyone,

Hope that this topic hasn't been discussed previously, if so, I have not been able to find it on this forum. I am from the Netherlands and I will be studying for a couple of months in Beijing, from this september to february next year. Because of this, I am currently in the market for an apartment during this time, hopefully in the Wudaokou area. Unfortunately, I find myself a little overwhelmed with the many many housing agents that are out there, especially after hearing stories about those that exploit people that are not familiair with Chinese language and the housing market in China.

Long question short, could anyone maybe point me towards an agent or agency that they have had positive experiences with? Apart from that I would appreciate any tips or other helpful information.

Thanks in advance, best regards,

Tim
