incredible karmic bonus points can be yours...

I have an urgent need to find a wheelchair-accessible (that means, no stairs for entry -- first floor with ramping or elevator, etc.; wide doorframes; studio / open floor plan can be a plus...) apartment in the greater Cambervilleford (that's Cambridge/Somerville/Medford) vicinity (which means we're also considering Charlestown, Chelsea, Boston, Watertown, Arlington, etc.). Occupancy is needed 9/1 or 10/1.

1BR 1000SF+, or 2-3BR 2000SF+ (*possibly* 1BR big, depending on layout). small one would be for a couple; large one would be for me with them. Proximity to Red Line a major plus but not a requirement. Reasonable T commute to Kendall required in either case; reasonable drive commute to Burlington Mall vicinity required for larger unit.

MUST have 1 BR, 1 BA, and most common space on main level without stairs. Additional BA, BR, even some common space, *can* be stair-separated. Condo, loft, live/work artist or semi-industrial space, etc. -- *all* options considered.

$1500 max for the small, $3000 max for the large, *if* including heat. Obviously, cheaper is better, and mandatory if not including heat. These days, $1200 or $2600 are about the max without heat, and that's likely to stretch it, given fuel volatility.

If you have a good rental agent you've worked with in the past -- who can honestly and actually take renters' requirements, and not waste our time showing places that don't satisfy, pointers are appreciated. Thus far, we've gone to see 2 places that were *way* too small, and another that was being MOVED IN TO the day we were supposed to see it. That cannot continue.
