Finding a great apartment in New York City can be a challenge. My objective is to find you the best apartment at a good price with a minimum of stress. My philosophy is to treat everyone with honesty and transparency. I won't waste your time showing you apartments that don't fit your criteria. I try and preview most apartments before I ever show them to clients. This way I can avoid surprises and so can you.

Also, I try and show you everythng on the market. Sometimes it takes a day, sometimes multiple days. If you don't see something the first day, no worries. If you don't know where you want to live we can explore different areas and see what the values are based on the neighborhood.

David showed me about ten apartments this past Friday. All of them were within my budget, had all the amenities I told him I needed and most important would welcome my dog. I was impressed that he seemed familiar with the buildings and the apartments before he showed them so I always felt well prepared for everything I saw. He was both knowledgeable and honest which I have to say was rare in my past dealings with real estate people. I will recommend David to anyone looking for an apartment in NY especially people who are pet owners.

I rented an apartment from this agent.

What a piece of work this guy! I was trying to arrange a viewing. I JUST started looking for two bedrooms literally today and this is the e-mail I got when I mentioned we had an appointment later in the day:

"Larissa; if you are already working with multiple brokers, I don't work that way. Any broker can show you any listing. Not just the ones you see listed I usually work one on one with my clients and show everything. That how you get someone who really finds you the best apartment. Seeing another broker every half hour - count me out."

On nakedapartments.com you are forced to select only certain brokers or the super depending on the property you are interested in. I was under the impression we had selected a "no-fee" apartment which clearly isn't the case based off David's response.

It's our first day apartment hunting! The feedback I would provide is to ask before jumping to conclusions. If you like to work one-on-one just say that instead of writing a rude e-mail to someone wanting to bring you business.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

David responded to my inquiries right away in the most informed, professional manner and immediately started showing me several apartments that were within my budget and desired location. He had access to several apartments in desirable locations before they were listed at sites such as Naked Apartments, via his good relationships with building managers.

I did not end up renting through David, as I found an apartment via a friend. However, I do recommend David as a knowledgeable, responsive, professional broker.

David was an absolute prince! He was professional, complete, totally honest, and immensely helpful. We rented a wonderful 3 bedroom in the East Village, exactly where we wanted to be. With three young ladies, all with different tastes and ideas this was not an easy feat. David never lost sight of what we needed and met our timing and price. I highly recommend him. Thank you Prince David.
