A dual citizen of France and the United States, Julien Aractingi speaks fluent French and English, and possesses a deep understanding of both cultures. He decided to permanently move to New York City after finishing his high school curriculum in Paris, France. Julien graduated from Baruch College in NYC where he earned a Bachelor degree in Mathematics and received Summa Cum Laude honors. He learned to work incredibly hard without wasting valuable time, as he does today. Julien specializes in selling real estate in Downtown Manhattan neighborhoods like the East and West Village, Greenwich Village, Soho, Tribeca, Flatiron, Chelsea and Gramercy. Living in Gramercy, he enjoys his own life as a downtown guy, which allows him to really understand his clients' needs when it comes to buying, selling or renting properties in the city.   Ninety percent of Julien's real estate clients are referral based, which is a great testament to how well he knows the business.

Wish I would have met Julien before. Made me save so much time (After I wasted a few weeks with other brokers...). Highly recommended.

He always has a positive attitude and he is one of the only agent who actually show you the listings you sent him an email about.

I would have never found the apartment without him. He sent me an email about the unit the first day it was listed.

Thanks again Julien.

I just love him!!!!!!! So easy to get along with. He made the process so simple for me. I never felt pressured at any moments. He only showed me a few apartments but everything was exactly what I was looking for.

I met different brokers before and most of them are so unpleasant to be with. They force you to sign their stupid paperwork or meet them at their office just because the fee is the only thing they care about.

None of that with Julien, he is simply a class above everyone else. Everything is so natural in the way he carries himself with clients.

I came very close to renting an apartment from Julien but decided on a place I saw with another broker before I met him.

That said, I highly recommend Julien. He knows the downtown neighborhoods like no other and he is tireless in his search for the right place. Another thing Julien is really good at is knowing when other brokers are posting "fake" listings of places that are fictional or no longer available (horrible but common practice here on Naked Apartments and other similar sites). That is how well he knows what's available in the market.

On top of that, he is courteous, attentive, honest and dedicated. In a town full of shady and dishonest brokers who think only of their fee, Julien stands out. He thinks first about the needs and happiness of the client. And he doesn't make you meet him at some street corner nowhere near the apartment with a bunch of "paperwork" that you have to sign on the fly before you can see the apartment. He treats his clients in a top-notch manner.

Superb agent. Just superb. Highly recommended!

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Julien was very professional and knowledgeable of the city. I've never had any broker that knew the city as in depth as he does. It felt easy to find the apartment of my dreams at a great price.

Such a positive experience to deal with Julien. I have met a lot of different brokers within the last few weeks. He does not waste any time, straightforward, always on point but very laid back and easy to deal with. He was able to find me a large one bed in the West Village that was not even available yet. He knew the property manager and could get me in the apartment before everyone else. I signed the lease the next day. My sister is already working with him for another apartment.

Julien is probably the most knowledgeable broker I have ever met. I used different brokers in the past and the process has always been painful. His knowledge of the City and the Downtown area is unmatched. It seems like he knows every single building and price points around the different neighborhoods.
I was looking for a one bedroom in SoHo and my time was very limited. I called him, set up an appointment for the next day. Met him for two hours and we were applying for an apartment at the end of the day. Was approved 24 hours later.
It is truly the first time I was actually happy to pay a broker's fee. :)
