My wife and I were with another agent before switching over to Chauncey because our first agent wasn't as fast at responding to our emails and text messages. When it came time to apply, Chauncey pushed our paper work through expediently.

We submitted our application for our second choice in the building because our first choice apartment was already taken. When our first choice randomly opened up two days later, Chauncey worked with building management to get us switched over to our first choice and even got us a discount on the original rent price.

Highly recommend.

Chauncey is a very personable agent who promptly returned phone calls and texts left for him unlike other agents we had dealt with in the past. For our apartment showing he was prompt and worked with us and management to enable us to rent despite my fiancee's credit problems. I highly recommend Chauncey as an agent.

I was able to sign a lease for the first apartment I visited with Chauncey. He showed great professionalism by being on time (even early) for the viewing and lease signing on our new apartment.
He was very patient and communicative.
I would recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment in NYC.

Finding an apartment in New York is not easy. Chauncey made it an extremely easy process for us. The only and first apartment we viewed was with Chauncey and we immediately loved it. The process, paperwork, and payment was made very clear to us right off the bat. Chauncey sent us the paperwork within a day of telling him we were interested, our application was approved within a day, and that's the story! He was very knowledgeable of the apartment complex and neighborhood and even called us up on our moving day to see how things were going. Very professional and helpful. Made moving in an often difficult city a very easy experience!

Chauncey is very professional and works quickly. Both aspects in a broker that are needed when trying to find a rental in the very competitive NY rental market. I would recommend him.

Chauncey was courteous, friendly, and worked hard to get us the perfect apartment. Hunting for apartments in NYC is a nightmare, but he made the crazy process a lot easier. Now my wife and I have the keys to our brand new place! Thanks Chauncey!

Though I did not rent, I had a wonderful experience with Chauncey.I would have rented the apartment just because of his personality. He is an expectational broker. Great job Chauncey

While I did not end up renting from Chauncey (due to my budgetary limitations) I greatly enjoyed his help. Chauncey went out of his way to show me a nice apartment in Brooklyn, staying in touch the entire time and in a pleasant manner. I would recommend him on that alone in a heartbeat, as well as for having a nice property to show.

Responded to and showed us an apartment within a few days and the apartment was gorgeous- a no fee newly renovated 2 br. We absolutely loved it and Chauncey told us that he would do his best to help us get a mid-May move in.

After submitting our application through Chauncey, we were told management wanted a May 1st move in which wasn't too big of a deal as the apartment was no fee which would allow us both to afford one month of double rent.

When we went to sign the lease, it turned out the security deposit that was being put down for the apartment was actually being paid to Chauncey as a fee and we would not have a security deposit. We felt we were taken for a loop as I asked specifically to Chauncey if this was a no fee apartment as well as asked him what the 2 checks being made out for the lease signing were for. He assured me both times that it was a no fee apartment and the check being made out to Oxford was the security deposit.

Apparently, Chauncey had not worked with the management company in over 6 months and they had changed their policy- they were not expecting to pay him a fee. They worked it out so our security deposit would be turned into his fee instead. This was all done without our knowledge and no one communicated this change to us even when we specifically asked where our money was going.

While I appreciate management being understanding and allowing us an apartment without a security deposit, but we are more upset Chauncey never told us about the issue with management and he would be seeking a fee. In the end, we were penalized for his mistake and misunderstanding.

*Updated*

After I posted the above review, Chauncey contacted us saying he was surprised by the feedback. He suggested I reach out to management to clear everything up. While management did say he was seeking our security deposit as his fee upfront rather than adding a fee on top of everything, we still were in the dark until we signed the lease. I ended up having to explain to Chauncey that a security deposit is essentially a loan to the management company to ensure we leave the apartment in satisfactory condition and would eventually get it back. I guess he hadn’t thought about the fact we were banking on getting that money back at the end of our stay, which is rather sad that I had to explain this to him.

Overall, I wish we had gone through another broker who had a better understanding of the rules set forth by management and who was much clearer with us in the process.
