Sebastien was wonderful! He responded to all of my calls and messages quickly and was very helpful. I was waiting on my "dream apartment" to become available, and he got me in to be the first one to view it! I signed with him later that evening.

Sebastien is a dream to work with. After meeting multiple agents looking at multiple apartments, Sebastien was the first to agent to actually help me look for an apartment. He is beyond patient and a tireless worker. He kept all my seemingly impossible demands with each apartment he showed me, previewing them before I went to make sure I wasn't wasting my time. He was always charming and kind, which is a wonderful bonus when going through such a stressful process. In the end, Sebastien found me my dream place, larger than what I was looking for and under my budget. I still can't believe how lucky I am and will ALWAYS recommend Sebastien to anyone looking to find a place in New York. I can honestly say I could not have done this without him. It was truly a pleasure.

I came to New York with only one week in which to find an apartment, with a pretty tight budget and some strong opinions of what the ideal apartment would be like. A friend put me in touch with Sebastien, who had helped her with her apartment search earlier, and I'm so glad she did. Sebastien helped me find a perfect apartment in my price range in a great neighborhood, but before that, he spent all week contacting apartments, lining up viewings, explaining the process to me, and giving me his honest opinions of different locations and apartments. We were looking both in Harlem and in Brooklyn, and his knowledge of the city and various neighborhoods was clear. I knew I could trust his judgment, and that he had my best interests at heart. He ended up negotiating a great deal for me. I would recommend him to anyone!

The apartment hunt in New York can be tough, and I'm not sure I could have done it without Sebastien.

Sebastien was wonderful to work with. He was always available by phone/email and checked in daily (usually more often) with places to look at. He also checked on and verified listings we found on our own.
Sebastien was professional, patient, polite, honest, and full of information. He made the apartment search process the smoothest it could ever be.

Working with Sebastien made what could have been a torturous search process downright pleasant. From the beginning, he focused on my top priorities for a space and worked with me every step of the way to find me a great space in well-kept building, in the neighborhood I love.

I needed an apartment that could hold a king-sized bed, no easy feat in NYC, but I knew the proverbial needle in the haystack was out there. Sebastien found me an inside scoop well under what I was willing to pay. He found me a true New York miracle!

Courteous, professional and thorough, he went the extra mile for me taking pictures of the renovations taking place in my apartment during the process so I could stay abreast of the developments.

I have already recommended him to my friends. Sebastien is the best agent I've worked with in my experience renting, buying or selling real estate in Charlotte, London, Sao Paulo, DC, Houston, Jersey City and NYC.

Sebastien is fabulous. He showed me what was possible and helped me understand what was really important to me. That is priceless. When the first round of apartments were no-go, he kept me updated with what was new on the market. I eventually decided to stay put, but when I'm ready to move (as soon as the market slows down a little) I'll call him first.
thanks so much Sebastien, and I'll be calling you soon.

Sebastien Haizet was the first broker I contacted when I was looking for a new apartment, and boy was I lucky! He was extremely professional, friendly and very easy to work with---and he found me exactly what I was looking for! I would highly recommend him to anyone searching for a new apartment in the New York area. He’s the best!

Sebastien was very fast in getting back to me after my initial contact. We met and in our first meeting, he took the time to understand my needs as well as my wishes. He then worked effortlessly to accommodate as much of my wishes as possible (which in NYC, can be quite difficult). We visited a few places, and each time he would actually be honest if he thought the place did not fit me. He is also great to work with (great sense of humor, reliable, and available).Thanks to him, i now have a great apartment in a great location and at a very very descent price!
