Finding an apartment in this city should not be the most stressful thing you do all year.  My job is to take that stress off of my clients’ shoulders and be their strongest advocate at every step of the process.
Establishing a thorough understanding of my clients’ specific needs is always step one.  Helping my clients prioritize those needs (is living two blocks from the “L” train and having space for a home office more important than having a walk-in closet?) is a key component to this step.

My background in architecture and design gives me added insight into my clients’ particular needs and enables me to see an apartment’s “full potential” more clearly (perhaps the tiny closet in that otherwise great apartment near the “L” could be overcome if the home office doubled as a dressing room with plenty of clothes storage?).  Offering creative suggestions where I can simply gives my client more choices, and helps me achieve my ultimate goal: finding a space that meets my clients’ specific needs and feels like a true home (and not just another ‘rental’ where they put their stuff and plug in their phone charger).

David was extremely helpful during our search. Very responsive, straightforward, and honest, which is much harder to find in a broker than you'd hope. He was also very happy (and patient) to show us the same apartment on 3 different occasions with pretty short notice as we struggled with our indecision. We ultimately decided on a completely different neighborhood but the apartment was legit and David's description of it was completely accurate—not inflated at all.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

David went above and beyond in securing me an affordable and incredible space in the neighborhood I was principally interested in. He was able to be flexible around my difficult schedule and was consistent in following up and collating my information to make the application process as smooth as possible. I would definitely recommend him!

David helped me negotiate my lease and get me a really good deal on an apartment that I love. He was a great listener and very professional. Thank you David!

Working with David was a joy… he’s thorough, detail-oriented and made the entire process a pleasant one. My long list of criteria and tight budget didn’t deter him a bit. Not only did he help me find a great apartment within my price-range, he suggested ways that I could maximize the apartment’s existing space and really make it work for me (storage solutions, how to arrange my existing furniture, etc)… some really great ideas that hadn’t even occurred to me. I highly recommend David!
