i'm coming to Moscow in a couple of weeks time and would like to spend a day looking at long term accomodation options. who are the reputable realty firms which could be approached on this? preferably ones that would only charge on success basis.

I definitely recommend trying evans, Their commission is one month rent, however they offer good value for money, I had very good service and I was offered good apartments that matched my requirements. Don't waste time on unheard of realty firms, especially if you're new to Moscow and/or don't know Russian.

I have just moved from one area to another and found the following to be good.

Search apartments for rent (http://www.intermarksavills.ru/rent/in-town/search/bymetromap.php) Ed.(This is a link to Intermarks)
. . - (http://arenda.miel.ru/) Ed: (This works it just doesn't display correctly on this website)
Miel site has the better search engine but has to be done in Russian as the English site only has a description of the company. I used a translation site like
AltaVista - Babel Fish Translation (http://babelfish.altavista.com/)
to translate the page.
I eventally got my apartment from miel. They only show 'executive' flats to expats.

They ALL charge one month's rent AFTER you sign the contract.

Use a Russian to help you with the contract or you will be fleeced! (taken advantage of)

I noticed that my links previously weren't in reconisable sylables. so here is the Best search engine from Miel. It has a google map with squares that represent apartments. click on the square and you get a description of it, with price etc.

you can zoom in and out and drag the map using the mouse.
if the link below doesn't work cut and past the bottom of the links removing the space between // and map
