If you do choose to use a real estate company, I very highly recommend Boston Property Services. My family and I used this company to find the apartment that I currently live in, and they were wonderful. They are friendly, efficient, and will do everything they can to help you find exactly what you're looking for in an apartment. Check out their website to search for rentals, and to find their contact info.
