Things to look for when searching for housing? (Lagos)

I am moving to Lagos this month and need to secure accommodation. I would like to live off the mainland (VI, Lekki, etc) and be an area with a high number of expats from the US & Europe.

I am also looking for a small furnished or semi-furnished place. It doesn't need to be more than two bedrooms.

Are there specific neighborhoods or compounds I should suggest to the agent? I am concerned that my company will stick me with an agent with their interests in mind, which will likely differ from my interests. The company does not have much experience with expats, hence my concerns.

I am also looking for specific facts/questions to ask or tips to ensure I am seeing a large array of housing opportunities before picking one. Overanxious agents need not respond.

Thank you.
