If you're looking for the perfect apartment and you're looking for RIGHT NOW - then let's go! Since you're online searching for apartments then why not actually come out with me to look at them right now? I have an inventory (with keys in our office) of apts ready to go look at. This is a hot market and some apts are grabbed up within hours so the sooner you see the apt the better chance you'll have getting that application in to get the IDEAL apartment! TEXT ME if you need to look at apts right away. If it's late - I'll get back to you in the morning. ***This is NYC - Rentals will go QUICKLY. If you see an apartment you like, then have your FINANCIALS READY (ask me for the required docs you'll need) and put in an application. I have had too many clients think a little too long on an apartment and they end up losing out by waiting.
Also - the process of apartment hunting can be as long or as quick as you want*. If you sign a lease this weekend (meaning you have all your paperwork ready to go), the application can be submitted THAT day and you might just have your keys by the beginning of the week (depending on how quick the landlord responds).
A little background on me:
Michael grew up in Dallas, Texas and then moved to the Northeast when he attended the United States Merchant Marine Academy from 1998-2002, a military academy located in Long Island, New York. He served in the U.S. Navy Reserves from 2002 to 2012. His real estate career was just beginning in 2005 with the purchase of his primary residence in Downtown Brooklyn, New York.
Michael started his own real estate investment company, MSD Property Solutions, LLC as a sole-proprietor in August of 2007. The company was centered on acquiring properties throughout the NYC Tri-state area and turning them over for profit using creative “subject-to” and “lease-option” financing techniques. During the first quarter of 2008, the company commenced negotiating its first few residential short sales. In February 2009, he combined efforts with another investor to create Oroton Equities, Inc. – an investment firm that specializes in distressed residential real estate short sale arbitrage and commercial joint ventures and acquisitions. Michael maintains his position as the Chief Operations Officer of Oroton Equities which currently acquires multi-family properties in New Jersey.
Michael has maintained an active real estate salesperson license in New York since November 2010 working with Exit Realty and now Ideal Properties Group in Brooklyn. He also maintains an active salesperson license in Connecticut. Since moving to Downtown Brooklyn, Michael started to see the developers flock to the area with new skyscrapers popping up almost every month. It was hard for him not to research the latest and greatest development that would soon bring trendy restaurants, shops, and bars to the high-demand Brooklyn neighborhoods. Friends frequently refer to Michael as the "Brooklyn Maven"! He's a dedicated agent that is willing to bend-over backwards to make sure his clients find the ideal pad.
