What is PPM's Referral Fee and How do I Qualify?

Easy. First, keep your ears open for friends wishing to change their living arrangement. Second, tell them about PPM and why you like living here. Third. Get them to come and tour our properties. Fourth. If they apply, are approved, and move in, YOU are the WINNER! You will receive a $200 referral fee from PPM.

How much easier can it get to have that extra cash in your pocket?

Just be sure they give your name as the person referring them at the time of application. That's all you have to do.

Keep those ears open. It can lead to a big cash return.

** This has to be for a new lease, not a roommate addition or a sublease.
