Thanks to James, I found a great apartment in Murray Hill on the FIRST day of my search and well within my budget. The work he put in made the broker's fee very much worth it. The NYC rental market is very competitive. After a long day of searching, James received a new listing and immediately took me there. We were in the apartment with 5 other potential applicants and many were already submitting their applications. On the spot, I told James that I wanted to submit an application and he was very strategic in his approach (trust me, there is strategy!). Long story short, we hurried back to the Citi Habitats office, filled out the application, got the money order, and James LITERALLY sprinted back to Murray Hill to catch the other broker who was showing the apartment. The other broker said he really respected James' hustle and I honestly think that's how I got my apartment. James got there faster than anybody else, IN PERSON, and turned in my very complete paperwork :) All in all, James was great to work with. Super responsive and knowledgeable of the market. What I most appreciate about James is that he said our relationship doesn't just end with the signed lease, he will be there for me if I have any questions, concerns or needs with my new apartment. He'll take care of it.

I am so happy I met James, he set a standard to which other realtor agencies look up to. I just moved to NYC from Sweden 3 weeks ago and I was shocked by the rent, the fees and requirements for an apartment in NYC. Before I met James, I dealt with other brokers, which was a disappointing experience. Most of them rushed through the apartments without any comment and gave me the feeling that is just about their fee. Even one did not show up at all. James, in contrast, is the total opposite. He was very friendly and charming and even though we had only an appointment for one apartment, he took me to 3 others across the city and spent hours with me. He never rushed me and it was more like a friend showing me the area and the apartments. With James, you have every detail you need, and you're taken care of during the whole lease-signing process. I can't say enough amazing things about him. Additionally he gave me useful tips about getting started in NYC. In summary, I fully recommend James to every person, friends, family, or just anyone looking for an apartment who is looking for an expert and honest broker, who really cares!!!! THANK YOU JAMES!
