Karl is a fantastic broker. He did not, like other agents, try to pressure me into making an application for a place I would not be approved for. He was clear with me about the place I was viewing and the fees involved. During the process he was a great intermediary between me and the building owners. He was able to relay information effectively that I needed to explain. Thank you for helping me find a home, Karl!

Everything was fine, Karl was professional and patient. We had a shortage of income as requested by the landlord, but it worked out. The only issue I had was no mention of the amenities fee in the listing (and I really don't like hidden fees!).

I highly recommend working with Karl. I had requested information on an apartment and he responded immediately. I told him exactly what I was looking for and when we met he had a bunch of options. He was very helpful and informative. I found what I was looking for in our first meeting.

Karl is an excellent, professional agent.Helpful, personable and competent.
It was a pleasure to meet him-at the end I couldn't rent the apartment (because of my low budget),but he helped me many ways.
Thank you Karl being not just a great agent but a very nice person too...Alexandra Gabanyi

Karl was extremely prompt, professional, truthful and helpful. He replied quickly to all of my inquiries and was very knowledgeable about the properties we viewed in Long Island City. He went above and beyond anything I asked and has great follow up skills. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a helpful, honest and friendly broker that knows the ins and outs of the NYC market.

Karl was quick to give us his time and attention, friendly, prompt, knowledgeable and very aware of how to seek out and address our needs. We have not yet rented an apartment, but when we do, we will gladly do so working with Karl.
