I used to put ads in Newspapers for rooms for rent...this turned out to be a disaster. Locals with no jobs and trashy people were the only ones calling. I only used Roommates.com this time and ended up getting 2 great people for roommates. Very pleased!! I will always use this site in the future! Thanks a bunch! - Sally
Thanks for providing a great service. Your site was the most useful resource I encountered because of the room mail feature. Being able to make preliminary, semi-anonymous contacts with prospective roommates not only speeds the process of finding a roommate, but also allows for more selectivity in choosing someone who will work well with one's circumstances. -Alexandra
