I'm looking into travelling. There's so many agencies to choose from though! Who do you guys recommend going through?? I'm wanting someone that you trust to give good housing. I have a wife and one year old that will be coming with me and don't want them living in a rough side of town. I know some agencies are really good about giving good housing, others not so much.

Hmmm... Maybe an agency like PHP? Full service agencies pay less though. Consider finding your own housing and taking the housing stipend. Take a hotel room for a couple of days and let your wife find housing while you are in orientation.

we always found our own housing, as it was better money wise that way. you can always have them find housing for you the first time, then you can find your own. The problem is that you will have to pay higher rent as you are doing a short term lease, but usually you still make more money by finding your own place. with it only being the three of you you really just need a one bedroom apt or else if you are all very cozy then just a studio. that way you don't have to pack as much!
