I am fully committed to helping customers find great apartments in New York City, based on listening to their specific needs, objectives, budget and expectations.    I specialize in affordable studios, 1 BR, 2 BR and 3 BR apartmens, anywhere in New York City and desirable residential areas in Queens and Brooklyn.  Most of my customers are looking for a great place to live, close to public transportation, shopping, restaurants, entertainment and basic services but the most important thing is a combination of safety, convenience and affordability.   I update my rental inventory on a daily basis due to the fact that most of my current listings are apartments that based on location, size, condition, amenities and price get rented very quickly in this fast-moving market.    Therefore, I highly recommend all my clients to schedule a viewing of the apartments they like at their ealiest convenience to avoid disapointments.  You can contact me a day or two prior to scheduling a viewing to allow me enough time to check the availability of your desirable apartament with the owner or managing company, secure access to the building and keys to the unit.   Unfortunately, the inventory changes daily and good and affordable apartments are hard to get. So if you are looking for great deals don't me by phone, text-message and e-mail to start with your apartment search as soon as possible.    Time is always of the essence because this is a very competitive market...what's available today...may be gone by tomorrow.    I help you search, locate, evaluate and negotiate your leasing terms with minimal interruption from your team and I do all the work so you don't have to. We even provide you with a comprehensive review of your application and required documentation prior to presenting it to landlords and managing companies to ensure your acceptance...thus avoiding waste of time and unnecessary processing application fees.    I am able, ready and willing to provide you with the best customer service possible by working with you in a mutually beneficial business relationship that will produce results in the most timely and cost-effective way.    My philosophy is that customers in need of a new and exciting place to live shouldn't experience high levels of stress, anxiety and frustration while looking for available and affordable apartments by themselves or working with unreliable real estate agents.    I am here to simplify the entire process for you, once we identify your specific needs based on location, size, condition and price we work in a smart and proactive way until we find the perfect apartment for you. We are literally working with you and for you 24/7...our goal is to be your reliable real estate solutions provider for your immediate needs and in the future.    I work with Ardor New York Real Estate, a reputable real estate company with over 20 years of experience in the New York City market.    We have a dynamic database that produces real listings on real time, which gives us the ability to work with an organic inventory of 200 apartments of all sizes, prices and in the most desirable neighborhoods in NYC every single day. This translates into efficiency, time saving, more options and great deals when you need it.    Check my current inventory regularly and schedule a viewing at soon as you find something that meets your specific criteria.   I will help you preparing all the required documents and leasing application to improve your chances of getting accepted.   The standard brokerage's commission in this industry is 15% but in our case its negotiable...we work with what will make you very comfortable.  We also present your offer to the managing agents and negotiate better conditions that will benefit you. In some cases we even get you fre-rent time so you can move in to your new apartment even before your lease starts.

My approach to real estate services:

  • Establish a good line of communication with prospective clients in a friendly and casual environment.
  • Conduct an accurate needs assessment and analyze the search criteria that will produce relevant results.
  • Work closely with customers looking for apartments, landlords looking for reliable tenants and all market conditions with overall effectiveness.
  • Advertise, present and view apartments that meet the criteria of customers (time management)
  • Represent the interest of my customers with honesty, responsibility, loyalty and integrity.
  • Work with customer's busy schedules in a flexible manner when it comes to meetings, viewings, application preparation and submission and lease signing.
  • Give customers the ability to view apartments in their target locations, present offers and prepare everything they need to reach a successful outcome.

  • Call for Action:
  • When your lease is about to end and you need a new apartment. (usually 2 moths prior to expiration)
  • If your personal or professional circumstances change and you need to relocate immediately.
  • When you are ready to take advantage of new and exciting opportunities in the real estate market (good deals)
  • When you need or want to upgrade or downgrade your living space or just simply move to a new neighborhood. 

  • Contact me by phone, text-message or e-mail.  I will be glad to work with you and for you. I am flexible, adaptable and highly reliable.  I believe that respect, honesty, integrity and open communication are the basics for building a mutually beneficial and long-term relationship.

Nelson is very helpful when searching for an apt, he will find an option that you agree to, and doesn't push you for a decision. I'm glad that I had a chance to work with him!

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.
