"The absolutely best tenant screening service with fast reports and excellent customer services. I'd highly recommend them to my property owner friends for all their rental services." - R from Federal Way
"I used the new express report last week and I want to let you know that it's great from a user standpoint. I've got multiple smaller properties, and in the past I always had to drive back to my office as soon as I got an application to scan it and send. Now I can send you the info from my phone and save a trip back to the office. This will be a real time & mileage saver for me. Thanks!" - Pat from Tacoma
