you can only get a NIE from the extranjería - even if you pay someone to do it you still have to attend the office yourself - it's very simple & the NIE cert costs about 10€

you can usually rent a property with your passport as ID - most landlords prefer it anyway because it is photo ID

if you're living here you should be registering as resident anyway - slightly more complicated than just getting a NIE - but still a simple enough process to do yourself without paying the ridiculous fees some companies will charge you - especially since you would still have to attend the extranjería, as I said
