Past Landlord -Equity Residentia
l sent me to Collection Agency

I broke my lease to move to California for family reason and I was unable to pay the $2000 fee.
I lived in Boston before I moved to California. My ex landlord in Boston was Equity Residential
Equity Residential sent me to collection company and now i owe them $3000 which was posted on my credit report.
My situation was that I was unable to find a job in California and I just now moved back to New England. For some reason, I was able to rent a 1 bedroom apartment in Providence RI. I guess the rent collection was not posted on my credit report at the time my current landlord checked my credit. Otherwise, they would not rent me a place.
My question is, if I contact the collection agency to make the payment, will I be able to rent a place in Boston after the payment is made?
