Take the worry out of finding your next apartment! I help people save time and money with my 100% FREE service.

Born and raised in San Antonio I know the city inside and out. With 20 years of experience in the apartment industry as a manager, leasing agent and apartment locator I also know San Antonio apartments. Throughout this time I learned how frustrating and time consuming it is for prospective tenants to complete the search on their own. In 2013 I decided to open my own service to help take the frustration out of the apartment search; since then Absolute Apartment Locators has blossomed into San Antonio's best locating service! Contact me today to get help with my 100% FREE service!

Call to start your search today!


I'm here to find the perfect apartment for you! I understand that many San Antonio Texas apartment hunters are too busy with life to give their searches the time they should. Finding an apartment with the right number of bedrooms is easy but finding the perfect apartment with the right amenities in the best area is a challenge. This is where I can be of assistance. Simply tell me what your requirements are and I will take the stress out of finding the perfect place for you! I will send you photographs and unit specifications regularly until you are satisfied.

How it works

1. Call, text, or complete the contact form. Give me as much detailed info as possible to help you find your perfect matches!

2. Receive your personalized results based on the criteria you select. I can even set appointments for you or accompany you to the properties when you are ready to lease!

I provide the following:
  • Pricing & move-in specials
  • Floor plans and amenities
  • Photos of the properties
  • Maps
  • School ratings
  • Up to a $100 Gift Card upon move-in!

3. Make sure you use my name “Cel with Absolute Locators“ as the referring source on your guest card and lease application when visiting properties and claim your Gift Card the day you move in!!


1. How is your service free? What's the catch?

There's no catch! Apartments provide referrals to apartment locators for helping them find qualified tenants.

2. Will I pay more in rent if I use your service?

Absolutely not! The referral I get paid from the apartment is factored into their advertising/leasing budget and does not affect your monthly rent, discounted rent, or move-in special!

3. How do I make sure you get the referral for helping me?

Great question! As long as you list “Cel with Absolute Locators“ as the referring source on your guest card and lease application the apartment will arrange payments to me.

Top 10 Tips for Finding an Apartment

10. Online Reviews

You May Think You’re Getting The Honest Opinion On Your Potential New Home, But Never Put Too Much Faith In Online Reviews! Rival Apartments Sometimes Post False Information On Competitors’ Listings And Write Good Reviews About Themselves!

9. Pricing

I Can’t Emphasize This Enough – Pricing Changes Every Day At Properties. Most Apartments Now Use The Same Pricing Software Used By Airlines! Once You’re Quoted Something You Like, Get It In Writing And Verify How Long Your Quote Will Be In Effect – 1 Day, 2 Days, Or Longer.

8. Map of the Properties

On The Properties Report I Send You, You’ll Find A “Show Map” Link In The Upper Right-Hand Of The Page. Click On This Link And It Will Pull Up Google Maps With All The Properties Pinpointed For You!

7. More Property Info

As You Scroll Through The Properties Report, You’ll Notice That Certain Words (Like The Property Name) Are Highlighted In Blue. Click On These Links To See More Information About The Property.

6. Floor Plans

Many Properties Provide You With A Floor Plan For Online Viewing. This Is Available For Properties With The Square Footage Highlighted In Blue.

5. Ensure the Best Specials

Tell Any Property You Visit That You’re Working With CEL ZEPEDA At ABSOLUTE LOCATORS To Ensure You Receive All Possible Specials And Benefits. And Don’t Forget To Call Me To Verify That Your Quote Is The Lowest Bottom Line Price. By Working With A Realtor, You’ll Be Sure Apartments Are Upfront And Provide You With Any And All Available Specials.

4. Income Restrictions

Most Properties Require That You Earn At Least 3 Times Your Monthly Rent. You’ll Need To Present Pay Stubs, Bank Statements, Or A Letter From Your Employer Stating Your Monthly Income In Order To Qualify.

3. Credit or Legal Issues?

Most Properties Will Deny Applicants With A Felony, Eviction, Or Broken Lease On Their Record, So Don’t Waste Money Applying To Multiple Properties If You Have Any Past Issues. If You Have A Foreclosure Or Bankruptcy, Properties Are Generally Able To Work With You But They Almost Always Require A Larger Deposit If You Are Approved.

2. Questions to Ask

Do You Have A Move-In Special? Do You Have A Look & Lease Bonus? (You Can Sometimes Get Additional Savings By Leasing Within 24-48 Hours Of Your First Visit) Are You Offering One Month Free That I Can Prorate? Do You Have Any Preferred Employer Discounts (USAA, H-E-B, Valero, Police, Medical, Lawyer, Etc.)?

1. Last (but NOT least)

Communities Usually Stop Showing Apartments 30 Minutes Before They Close. Also Remember To Bring A Photo ID – Most Properties Will Require Some Form Of Identification Before They Show You Anything. And Don’t Forget About Your Visa Gift Card! The Property Doesn’t Notify Me When You Lease, So Make Sure You Give Me A Call While Filling Out Your Application So I Can Begin Processing Your Rebate!
