Suspect Kickbacks...

I would be suprised if the brokers weren't kicking back part of the brokerage fee to the landlords. The LL at the last apartment I rented wouldn't even talk to people when I told them to call about apartments I knew were vacant. This was a large professional landlord, so I don't see why they couldn't have shown their own buildings.

: Please someone explain why this is? I am from the midwest and in a big city like chicago, you go directly to the landlord and rent, there is no "fee" for a broker. I just left Washington DC and again no "fee" how can they get away with this, why/ It is so expensive I can afford the rent, bu the fee is like a downpayment I don't get back. Is there a way around this / Help!1!!
