East Cobber creates


John Cristadoro, an East Cobb resident, has launched the next big thing in the Rental Property industry.  Your Rental is a web-based rental home listing service. After only a year John and his team have grown Your Rental Resource to rival the largest rental home websites.  John, along with his wife,  Gosia,  and their two children live in East Cobb.

Your Rental comes to Georgia with the intention of revolutionizing how tenants and landlords connect.  The web-based listing company provides an absolutely FREE service to landlords while offering those serious tenants a place to search through thousands of up to date, accurate listings.  In addition, YRR has partnered with numerous brands including Gas South, Aarons Rents and UPS My Choice in an effort to offer discounts on products and services related to their move.

Your Rental Resource is the most effective tool for those too busy to search hundreds of websites which may or may not offer a multitude of living options.  It’s a simple as deciding where you want to live, how much money you want to spend and what exactly you are looking for, then speak to the landlord directly to start your application process.

Searching for that perfect Townhouse with hardwood floors in Marietta?  Maybe a cute four bedroom home in the Walton School district?  Your Rental Resource provides every type of option on the market and it’s absolutely free to list a vacancy.

Many sites that offer listings to review either focus on one type of property like apartments or are a nationally based site.  Your Rental Resource is a locally focused company with Georgia Renters in mind. Don’t you hate when you think you’ve found the perfect rental property only to be disappointed when you speak to the landlord and find out it’s been rented for weeks already?   Your Rental Resource strives to provide the most up to date information for its tenant members. Check out their website at:
