I just read your e-mail regarding my apartment located in : Luisenstraße 45, 40215 Düsseldorf. It has 2 bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen (60 m2). I bought this apartment for my daughter during her studies in Germany, but now she's back home permanently, so I'm renting the place for unlimited time.
Before we go any further I would like to know a little something about you, like how many persons you intend to live in the apartment, and for how long. The flat is exactly like in the pictures, fully furnished and renovated. The rent is 500 euro per month with all utilties included(cold/hot water, electricity, wireless broadband Internet, digital TV, 1 parking spots). A security deposit of 1400 euro is required at the start of the lease and it will be refunded at the end of the contract (a 30 day notice is required).
You can use my furniture, or you can also use your own if you prefer. If you decide to use yours, you will have access to a very large and well ventilated cellar, where you can store my furniture.
Now, a little bit about myself so we can get to know each other better. My name is Josef Freund and I'm a 58 years old structural engineer and I work for MWH Global Engineering. I worked hard to have a good career and I really respect hard earned money. The company I work for they have projects all around the world so most of my time I'm traveling.
I have a lovely wife, Maria and a 25 year old daughter, Irene. I am very proud to say that soon I'm going to be a grandfather :). Another member of our family is a 8 year old Labrador which we all love, so, I have no problem if you will keep pets.
I'm in Madrid/Spain now and I work for a new project here and the only inconvenience is that my job doesn't allow me to leave Madrid even for one single day. We just hired some new staff and I'm in charge of their training.
But this won't affect you at all. I can make arrangements to rent the apartment from Madrid (on my expense of course).

Looking forward to hear from you soon.

All the best from Spain!
