At the end of the day, my friend took me to the apartment complex, and upon finding no-one at the apartment, I once again tried to contact the agent. After being directed to two other people, she eventually answered my call, only to inform me that the place was no longer available for rent and that they were "trying to get a hold of everyone to inform them" (I received this e-mail shortly after the call). Long story short, a waste of our time, petrol and energy, and no apartment!
