Russel is dedicated, professional, and easy-going (a welcome change of pace in the industry). Russell was keen on listening to exactly what we want and finding places that suited our needs. He was also great at working with management to get us to both the price and move-in date we wanted.

Russell is a great agent to work with. I unfortunately got involved with a less-than-reputable management company while apartment hunting and was left without an apartment with less than a week to find a new place and move. As soon as I called Russell, he scheduled a time to meet me and show places within 2 days. He showed apartments in the neighborhood I was looking and within my price range. He supported me through the application process and happily I was able to get a new place and move in within the short deadline. Russell is professional, works well with time crunches, and is supportive through the end. I highly recommend Russell for anyone who is in the market for a new place. He will not disappoint!!

Russ responded to my first e-mail within minutes, and from that point forward he continued to stay on top of my search and application process with the same attentiveness and sense of purpose. Russ made it a point to show me the best apartments first, even if it meant less of a commission for him. He found me the apartment I have always wanted, and I am extremely grateful for his services and the way he handled the entire process, with care and efficiency.

Bottom line: Working with Russ finding my first apartment was a pleasure and I would recommend him to anybody and everybody looking for an apartment in NYC.

Finding an apartment in Manhattan can be a daunting task, made even worse by agents who are dishonest about their listings and what they could do for me. Russ was plain and simple an honest agent and an overall great guy to work with. He put in many hours of hard work to help me find the apartment that was right for me. He wasn't pushy, respected my price range, and he was always honest about listings. He truly went above and beyond in helping me find the right apartment with a landlord that wouldn't pull any funny business. I HIGHLY recommend working with Russ and have already referred him to family and friends looking for apartments in New York.

I highly recommend Russell as a broker. He was extremely helpful in my search for an apartment in Manhattan - I did not know exactly what I wanted, but Russell asked the right questions, listened to my perspective and used my answers to formulate a search. He was very honest about pricing of comparative units, which instilled a lot of trust. He showed me places that were a really good fit for me.

Other brokers do not give this level of service.

I will definitely look to utilize Russell in any future searches.

Russell was a great agent to work with. Most importantly, he was completely honest and transparent, which from my experience with brokers, isn't always the case. He listened to our needs and what was important to us in finding a great apartment and didn't stop looking until he found it. Friendly, mild-mannered and professional. It seemed like he actually cared about finding us what we wanted versus making a quick commission.

I would recommend Russell to anyone in the market for an apartment who doesn't want to deal with typical broker/agent c**p. He's a people pleaser and wants you to be happy and made the whole process easy for us.

Russell was extraordinarily helpful with my apartment search. He spent a good deal of time discussing what I wanted and what the market was like for those needs. He did not try any of the normal scams brokers in the city are known for, but was almost too honest. I would suggest anyone looking for an apartment to work with Russell.
