My passion is for helping people to achieve their goals; whether your goal is to find that perfect place to rent or buy, or to find the perfect people to rent or buy from you, my goal is to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.  I would sincerely appreciate the opportunity to assist you. Whether you are moving locally, from another state, or another country, I can help you.  Diplomats, students and pets are not an me now to get started.

Having grown up in NYC, I enjoy helping newcomers as well as seasoned veterans of the city to explore. At The Hechtgroup, we are passionate about helping you to settle in the place that you will call 'home'. We will go the extra mile, we will leave no stone unturned, to get you home. 

I can show you any of the units on the Hechtgroup website and many others as well, not just the listings in this profile, so contact me about any listing and I will get you settled.  At any given time, there are, quite literally, thousands of apartments available in New York City.  Although I do not have time to list them all, I have access to them and I can show them to you.  I accept late night calls and I am happy to meet with you during the evenings as well as on weekends.

The best way to assess the value and suitability of a property is to see it in person, so call us now to set up a private showing. Please contact me, Steve Karlin via email at

We moved from the UK to NYC and used Steve to help us find an apartment. Steve was happy to work with us for about 2 months before we moved. During this time Steve sent us numerous properties fitting our criteria so that we could see what kind of apartments were available. Then 2 weeks before we left the UK Steve arranged a comprehensive 2 days during which we viewed around 30 apartments, deciding on one on the second day. Steve was then very helpful in closing the process, having helped us in advance to prepare the documents we would require to have our application accepted.

All in all an excellent and very professional service that fully justified the fee.

Many thanks

Steve did a fantastic job of finding several apartments within our list of criteria. He showed us several, and knew exactly what we had in mind. He stays in constant communication to find just the right apartment. We are so thrilled with our new home.

Steve knew what we wanted better than we did. He showed us all the apartments that we picked but in the end he suggested something else. We rented his choice. He did a wonderful job! C&C

Before Steve contacted me through Naked Apartments, I had searched with several agents as well as on my own. I was seeking an unusual apartment size/layout and this made finding the right place very difficult. Previous brokers only showed me cookie-cutter apts that didn't meet my criteria.
However, Steve was the only one able to find the diamonds in the rough that I wanted to see. Virtually every apartment that Steve showed me was nicer and closer to what I was looking for than any that the other agents had shown me. It was clear that he was better both at looking for apartments and listening to my needs.

In addition, due to my busy schedule, Steve patiently went out of his way to meet me during work hours, in the evenings as well as on weekends until we found the right place.

Lastly, not only was Steve a great agent, but he was happy to share his knowledge of the city and the NYC real estate business. I definitely got an education in NY Real Estate just by listening to him.

If you want help finding a great place that's right for you, without wasting time or energy, give Steve a call. Steve went above and beyond to help me, and I would gladly recommend him to anyone searching for a new home.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.
