  • To say that Rental Advisors and Jodi Southwick are the ``wind beneath my wings`` sounds corny, but it is pretty darn accurate. I would say that at least 1/3 of my annual revenue can be traced back to Jodi Southwick. She is the secret ingredient in my my business recipe!

  • Jodi recreated my apartment locating brand into a sophisticated luxury website in Dallas. I constantly get compliments about the richness of my website, and how it represents my brand accurately. I am not a tech savvy person and working with Jodi I don't need to be. When I hired her I had a single landing page, now I have an online lead funnel that generates leads.

We do not publish your ad

We provide the MLS & IDX to transmit your ad to a third party publisher.

Rental Advisors is not a listing syndication company. We do not publish your listings directly to, or any other rental website. We do not have agreements with any rental website to publish to their platform. Listing syndication is a completely different industry. Rental Advisors serves as your apartment mls, and we provide the idx data feed that transmits the property name, address, floor plan, rent, and property photos to your ads. You must have a separate account with Zillow, RentLinx, Zumper, Red Bird, or other listing syndication company to publish your ads. Just like Realtors use their MLS to publish to Zillow, you can use our MLS to publish to RentLinx.
