Hi,


OK. Can you tell me, please, what is your desired move in date?

Please let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Niklas Noack. I live in Berlin, Germany, i am a plastic surgeon here.. The apartment was purchased for my daughter during her college and then we used it for short term rentals, then she redecorated it and now we rent it for long term.

My daughter is now in Germany, too. So, we have to find a proper way for you and us to safely get what we are after.

You can read some reviews about us and about the apartment on our Flipkey page from previous renters:

I have used an URL shortener service because the Flipkey link is too long, click the above link and look at our reviews.

See who we are and how we treat our guests to say so. Search about me on google, youtube.

Please let me know if you know this 2 companies:

www.flipkey.com -- a TripAdvisor company - probably you have used this company for your travels or reviews about destinations, etc, make a research online.
https://www.keycafe.com/keyexchange -- an awesome company for key exchange, find online articles if you haven't heard of them.

Read, inform yourself about this two companies and let me know.

I want to use this 2 companies for key exchange and payment.

If you ok with this, i will send you an email to describe how i am thinking to do this. Also, if you want to exchange IDs ok, if not, its ok, too.


Thank you,
Niklas

Really glad I found this! I could feel there was something off with this offer.
I reached out interested in an apartment being rented by Niklas Noack too only the address is 1535 Summerhill, Montreal, standard units go for $1,700/month, but his was $800/month due to it being difficult to rent seeing as how he lives in Germany.

Exchange of emails mimic yours exactly

Thank you for posting this!!!!
