I would highly recommend Lawrence as an agent. He is professional, courteous, and very responsive. My roommates and I were from out of state, away on vacation part of the time, sometimes over emotional and dramatic, and unfamiliar with the NYC renting process. Lawrence was very patient with us and made the renting situation as stress-free as possible.

He never pressured us into picking an apartment or hounded us for a response. He is truly a PROFESSIONAL and a pleasure to work with.

I can't say enough about Lawrence! He is a wonderful agent to work with - quick with responses to emails, extremely detailed with answering any questions we had, very kind and patient. He did a thorough search of apartments in Manhattan and LIC with our specific criteria and found amazing options for us. He quickly got to know our style and what we were looking for and therefore was able to find us a great place! I would highly recommend working with him.

Lawrence was a very gracious guide and overall a great asset in our search for the perfect apartment. He was extremely knowledgable about the apartment buildings in Long Island City and about the area in general. He was thorough with showing us our desired apartments and diligently took notes as we went from building to building. After our day of viewing, he sent a detailed email summarizing the units we liked, building details, and costs. He not only impressed us, but the leasing agents at the different buildings all seemed to recognize and respect him. Once we decided on a unit he was extremely thorough and responsive and acted as a great intermediary between us and the leasing office. He was very efficient and followed up with the leasing office on the application status diligently. From beginning to end he showed great professionalism and and eagerness to assist us at anytime of the day with questions about the process. Working with Lawrence was a great experience, I would highly recommend him to others.

I would recommend him to everyone.

Lawrence is amazingly responsive and reliable. I was able to meet up with him the SAME DAY that I first contacted him. I was unsure about what I wanted and he patiently walked me through every single available listing in LIC, which fit my criteria. He paid attention to what I liked and took notes, which later helped him to narrow down which buildings to show me during our tour of LIC. I met him on a Thursday and I signed my lease on Saturday of that same week. He was neither pushy nor aggressive. He was focused on what I liked and could afford.

Even after we signed our lease, Lawrence helped us work out all the details of our move with the leasing agents and the moving company liability insurance and renter's insurance. Again, he did this very quickly and ensured that we had a really smooth move.


I would absolutely recommend working with Lawrence for LIC, Manhattan or Brooklyn rentals.

Lawrence was a pleasure to work with while we looked for apartments in LIC. He was very thorough and catered to our desires. He payed close attention to what aspects we liked best and chose apartments that fit these qualities best. It was not the typical horror story you experience you imagine about moving. Instead he didn't push or get aggressive. Rather he tried his best to find a place that would make us happiest.

Lawrence was a pleasure to work with! He gives great spacial advise and will lay out exactly what you have to work with. By the end of our first hunt, we've looked at over 8 units within 6 buildings in the financial district! After seeing all the possibilities, my roommate and I have decided to sign one of the units we viewed. I would recommend working with Lawrence without a second thought!

I worked with Lawrence last year in September. He was very helpful and showed us around the financial district. I ended up renting in Queens for a few months, but I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking in downtown Manhattan, he seems to be very knowledgable of the market there!

Lawrence was so helpful and responsive with me and my roommate! He always answered my questions and showed us around so many different neighborhoods in Manhattan, Clinton, Financial District, Battery Park, West Village, and East Village. I ended up not renting in Manhattan last year which is why I didn't move forward with Lawrence, but he really was amazing. I would recommend him to anyone who's looking for an agent that would work for you and make you feel comfortable and at ease, especially with renting because its such a stressful process; Lawrence definitely made it stress-free. I will definitely recommend him to family and friends!
