Apartment shops are very hard typically, this is a definitely MUST record. I recommend it if you have lots of free time the day off as the report can take 1-2 hours (no lie) although with practice it can be condensed to about 20-25 minutes. The shop itself is about 20-30 minutes alone. I suggest having at least half a day off, recording it and make sure you have the right target and confirm THEY will be one that shows the place. I had one do a switcharoo (which was irritating), I got the credit but apart shops are hard so make sure 1. record! 2. Confirm that the target will be there! Usually, the apartment shops are for high end and expensive apartments that rent for 1200-1700 a month so dressing the part is important too.
I've always enjoyed working for Ellis--my input time is fairly short by now. The shops for Remington are much more of a pain, but I'll still take them if the price is right.
