My fiancee and I moved to NYC in March 2015, and after speaking with at least 10 different agents, we finally met one that LISTENED! Our situation was very unique, in that we hadn't lined up jobs prior to moving and had some savings set aside. He knew several landlords and explained our situation, and ultimately landed us an apartment in Hell's Kitchen that was exactly what we were looking for. It's obvious that he aims to do right by his clients, and we've sent him several referrals after he helped us (not something we really ever do). We'll use him for our next apartment without question. Meeting for drinks soon, he's someone worth knowing, even if you're not immediately looking for an apartment. Extremely happy to have met him, and know he'll be our NYC agent for years to come. Ben is honest, trustworthy, flexible, and listens to his clients. If we could give him 6 stars, we would!

I had two days to find an apartment in NYC, my first was spent with an agent who wasted my time and was completely useless. The experience really made me question my overall relocation to the city. My second day, I met Ben who turned everything around for me. Not only did he find me a wonderful apartment, he was polite, courteous, professional, and had a great sense of humor to make the whole process simple. He worked quickly to find me what I needed, when I needed it, and all in my price range. If I could give 10 stars, I definitely would. Highly recommend using his services!!

It was frustrating at first for me to come into a strange city and worked with impatient and rude brokers. Ben indeed saved me by his humor and patience. I would highly recommend Ben, and I am pretty sure I will contact him first if I need to look for another apt!

Ben helped my fiance and I find and sign for our apartment within one week. At our first showing, he listened to our preferences and was able to show us another apartment that met our needs on the fly. Once we decided to apply for the unit, he was proactive at obtaining/submitting our paperwork and negotiated the move-in date we wanted. He made finding our apartment a fast and easy process and I would definitely work with him again.

Ben was quick to respond to my inquiry on an apartment listing and was able to schedule time to view the apartment at a reasonable time. Ben was straight forward on the apartment details, fees, and landlord expectations. He assured my group that he would negotiate move-in date, as well as security deposit with the building's landlord given his experience renting out apartments for this owner. The entire signing process was smooth and Ben kept us in the loop every step of the way. I would definitely work with Ben again and recommend him to friends looking for apartments in the city.

Ben just helped my friends and I close a place near 50th Street and 8 Ave. Out of all the brokers I've ever worked with, he's definitely the best. He was able to understand our expectations and effectively figure out which properties were worth showing. After receiving a response from the landlord, he was able to negotiate the security deposit down, and even took a hit on his fee to make sure all parties were satisfied.

My group consists of recent grads with limited work and credit history. Ben truly did a great job!

Thank you and hope to work with you in the future!

Ben is awesome.

Extremely knowledgeable and thorough. Ben is laid-back - but not in an irresponsible way! - in more of a relaxing way. It helps ease you into the quite stressful process of finding a new place to live.

He responds to texts/calls/emails very swiftly, and is very attentive to your needs. If you need a broker, this is your guy.

Ben even haggled with the landlord for a bit for me in terms of price. He is willing to go above and beyond, and fight for his clients.

On top of it, he has a fun British accent, which is always a plus.

I had a great experience working with Ben. He is clearly knowledgeable about the NYC real estate market and was professional throughout the rental process. Furthermore (and this is important), Ben was trustworthy and respected the specific requests that my wife and I had for an apt. Despite not renting from Ben due to a change in our apt criteria, we enjoyed Ben so much we wanted to be sure this was reflected in his profile.

Ben is a fantastic Broker. He listen to all the qualification of the place I was looking for, and showed me exactly what I was looking for. He wasn't pushy at all. Ben was attentive to all my concerns and always had perfect comments or suggestions.
Ben Thank you for great work!!!!! I will make sure to contact only you in the future to help me find new home when needed.
