Ted O'Sullivan is in the relentless pursuit of helping clients find and acquire a property regardless of their budget. His intent listening, and ability to "read" what isn't spoken, allows him to hone in on the best neighborhood, home and deal within your specific parameters. Ted feels that key to the process is providing clients a thorough education of current market trends, pricing, amenities and availability. "By keeping my clients informed and offering close guidance through each step of the process from application to acquisition, I do my best to provide the most enlightening and rewarding experience. Whether it is a rental or a purchase, my clients know they have me by their side at every turn. My goal is to do everything in my power to locate and secure the properties that my clients love and want to call home." Originally from Boston, MA, Ted holds a BFA from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He also received an MFA from The School of Visual Arts in NYC. What has always been at the heart of his professional vision as both an artist and a realtor is his appreciation of aesthetics, art and architecture, and the belief that they are integral to the quality and meaning of life. "In New York, we have an ever- evolving juxtaposition of period architecture, new developments and a hybridization of everything in between existing side by side. The confluence of styles and various modalities of living and lifestyle are what make New York the premier city in the United States
I have hundreds of listings throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn, including everything from studios to entire homes for rent. After living and working in NYC for over a decade I am familiar with all neighborhoods, the surrounding transportation, restaurants, bars and shopping. I have access to the market share of Manhattan and many rare Brooklyn listings.

I advise all of my clients to be completely prepared with paperwork and available funds as good deals in prime neighborhoods exist for a very short while. Manhattan and Brooklyn are experiencing the lowest vacancy rate in history which makes for quite a bit of competition. Feel free to call, txt or email anytime and I will do everything in my power to help you acquire your next apartment.

Ted was a great agent. Super responsive and pro-active. He was the most attentive to our needs and asked us the most questions about what we were interested in during our first encounter. He provided countless options in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend getting in touch with him, he'll do right by you. I'm certainly going to keep his information with me for the future.

First and foremost.....Ted is THE MAN!!!!!!!

When I spotted my future apartment on Naked, I was blown away that it was still on the market! I contacted Ted immediately, as we was the agent listed under the property.

Ted was BY FAR the best broker I have ever dealt with in New York. He was so respectful, understood what I was looking for, and responded SUPER FAST to my initial inquiry. We spoke throughout the day and Ted set up an appointment to see the apartment that same day (mind you, it was the Friday before Memorial Day Weekend). This showed me how committed Ted was as an agent, to getting an appointment scheduled that very same day.

When I met Ted, he was very friendly and attentive to detail, plus EXTREMELY HONEST about the listing and other specifics. We got the deal done within the next week and I literally came from signing my lease today!!!

I apologize for the lengthy comments, but I just needed to explain how awesome Ted has been for my roommate and I. Without his efforts, I truly believe I wouldn't have been moving into my new apartment. I HIGHLY recommend Ted as an agent; it is hard to come by such an incredible agent (and person) such as Ted. I am soooo grateful!!! Thanks again Ted!!!

[Added by: Naked Apartments] Ted is terrific! I'd been looking for an apartment for some time and found the process onerous. Ted eased me through the hurdles, and made the process fast and flawless. Plus, he's really personable and interesting. I felt he was really dedicated to me, and helping me get what I wanted…and, I did! I'd work with Ted again in an instant.

I very much enjoyed working with Ted O Sullivan. He was always prompt (often early). Was able to work with my schedule quite easily and did not rush me in the least. He made sure I had plenty of time to look at each apartment, take pictures, etc. While waiting on other agents to meet us to open properties he gave me helpful advice about how the real estate system in the city worked and what I should and shouldn't expect from each realtor and landlord. I appreciate that he seemed to really be looking out for me, not merely his pocketbook. He was an honest, straightforward, and overall excellent realtor. I'm disappointed I wasn't able to rent from him (due to my narrow price range and location) but he did better than any other agents to find properties with those specifications. Highly recommended!

Ted worked very hard to find me a great apartment in a great neighborhood. He was always responsive whether by return phone call or email, and he was very quick to get back to me. He understood my needs and was very accurate with providing potential listings. Because of my work schedule, I was not available to view open houses, so I entrusted him to find me my apartment. I was more than thrilled when I saw my new home for the first time. It had everything I had asked for which proved how determined he was to find me an apartment with all my wants and needs. He was also available after hours and on weekends which was helpful because of my schedule. I would recommend him very strongly, and if I need a broker in the future, I will be sure to call Ted.

Ted was very easy to work with and made the whole process of seeing the apartment and signing the lease a breeze. Very professional and extremely quick with replying to any question over the phone or via email. The broker's fee was a little high but honestly well worth it.

Ted was great, he was timely, very attentive, responsive and found us a great apartment. He is very willing to answer all your questions, so make sure you ask him anything you're unsure of. He definitely worked for and earned his brokers fee, which I can't say is true for other brokers I've worked with in the past.

Ted was fantastic and made the apartment search process very smooth and quick. He was great to work with, very friendly, communicated frequently and was always available to answer my questions. Ted quickly found an apartment that was in my price range and in the neighborhood I was looking for. I would absolutely recommend Ted!

Ted greatly helped us out during our search for an apartment in Brooklyn. He graciously spent a long time with me on the phone providing a rundown of different neighborhoods and what we could expect in the application process. As we were moving from out of town, his advice was extremely appreciated. He has a ton of listings in the most desirable neighborhoods in NY and obviously has a good relationship with many landlords. Unfortunately, the apartments he had that we were most interested in rented before we were able to jump on them and we had to rent from another broker. Still, I cannot overstate how pleasant and helpful Ted is. I wholeheartedly recommend calling him if you are looking in Brooklyn.

All the stars to Ted. I'd give six if I could.

I figured with all the good reviews on Naked Apartments, Ted would be a tough guy to reach, but nope! He responded quickly to my inquiry (same day... same hour I think) and after my roommate and I found an apartment we liked, he made the process of applying and getting keys a total breeze -- took just a few days and he made everything easy and uncomplicated. Couldn't have asked for a better experience! And bonus fact: Ted has excellent taste in movies and actors. Go with Ted!

I'm tempted to give a bad review so Edward (my roommate and I called him Ted) will have time to work with me come the next time I move. However, he's awesome and I can't do that to him.

I've worked with several agents over the last 8 years in NYC and Ted is the only one I will gladly work with again. He's easy to communicate with, always on time, patient, and makes sure that everyone is on the same page. Unlike other agents I've worked with in the past, Ted actually wants you to live in a place that is a good fit for you! I highly recommend Ted for anyone searching for their new home in NYC.

COULD NOT IMAGINE A BETTER EXPERIENCE!

Edward knows what he's doing and caters to your preferences with flying colors. He is genuine, so I didn't feel for a second that I was being manipulated or pushed on an apartment. Also, he responded and worked quickly to get me the apartment I wanted. The entire time I felt like I had an advocate on my side through the rough process of apartment searching and negotiating. Additionally, he translates the lease and paperwork into laymen's terms well. I would recommend him to any friend, parent, boss, brother, etc. I had an amazing experience and would not hesitate to move again if I knew I could work with him.

Edward is amazing! Very personable and honest and dedicated to his clients and finding them a perfect spot. I would work with Edward again in a second. He was very easy to reach, and even contacted us when he found something he thought we might like. He was understanding when our plans changed and still wanted to help us with out search. Thanks Edward!

So me and my roommate contacted Edward about an apartment and Park Slope, we saw the space and decided later the next day to sign for the apartment. Edward was really nice, helpful and gracious. He answered about every call, text and e-mail almost immediately. He bought us some time with our landlord when we had some issues with the paperwork.

My roommate's dad was a little bit worried about some of the procedures in the application/guarantor process (which were all standard procedures btw nothing to worry about). And Edward was patient and friendly enough to talk to him in length even after 10pm! And when again, my roommate's father had a couple issues about the lease (which was also pretty standard) agreement, he again was able talk to him again for a period of time. So thanks Edward, you were able to reassure and convince my roommate's father that Park Slope is a safe, livable place for his daughter. Success!

I met with Edward to view an apartment and it was perfect for my fiance and I. From that point on, Edward did whatever he could to get me the place. He was excellent in terms of communication and dealing with getting all my paperwork done within 24 hours. I have strict work hours making it very difficult to communicate but he was understanding and careful not to make any decisions without consulting me first. Edward was a pleasure to work with and now my fiance and I have our first place in New York!

Edward was such a great resource for us in the leasing process. He was so helpful and courteous. He responded promptly to every email and call that we made. We found another apartment and did not rent from him but would have in a minute. Thanks Edward for your help in the move! Louann Fruge
