I'm monitoring craigslist for him as I am 9 hours ahead of PST and therefore can filter out the interesting stuff for hm before the competitors see it
But so far we haven't found anything suitable. There doesn't by any chance happen to be a free appartment near your perfect place? *hint hint*
I've never heard of padmapper. Thanks for the tip!
Oh I'm not in LA, sorry! Farther north in CA.
