Desmond and Sean were great at being efficient, helpful and always always on call. These guys won't let you down! If you are on a time crunch they will pull all the stops to get you an apartment.

Thanks to Desmond and his colleague Sabra, I found an apartment that I love in NYC. Desmond really listened to me and tried to understand my needs. We first met in his office, where he made me explain exactly what I was looking for. Then, I immediately started visiting apartments with his colleague Sabra. Sabra was very dynamic and always tried to understand what I liked or disliked about every apartment we saw together. I was impressed by her energy and professionalism. After I saw an apartment that I loved, Desmond and Sabra were extremely efficient in putting together an application immediately. They kept me updated all along the process, until I got the apartment. After I got the apartment, they kept in touch and told me about restaurants/furniture stores/grocery shops in the neighborhood. Overall, I had an amazing experience with Desmond and would recommend him in the strongest terms.

I'm a student who is new to this country. And I came across certain problems with apartments-renting. One of my friends recommended Desmond Eaddy to me so I turned to him for help.

He fully understood my situation and my demands. In addition, he provided efficient help and much help. Although in the end I decided to stay at my current apartment, I do appreciate his excellent work. If I want to change apartment in the future, he will definitely be the guy I'm turning to for help.

I recommend Desmond Eaddy without any reservation.

Desmond at the end of the day is the best agent I have dealt with since moving here to NYC many moons ago. Talk about professionalism, knowledge of industry and customer service, Desmond went above and beyond to make sure the home I got was one I could enjoy for years to come!

I worked with 2 real estate agents before meeting Desmond and he was by far the most knowledgable, personable and helpful. Demond is very direct and asks you the right questions to help find a perfect apartment that suits your needs and personality. He knows the market so well and made the apartment finding/applying process simple and easy and that NEVER happens in NYC. I highly recommend him!

He was quick to act after our inquiry and set up a meeting for the apartment we wanted to see that same day. We asked to meet at the building, but he made an excuse as to why we had to meet at his office. Then we found out why - the meeting he set up for us was actually for a different apartment than promised. On top of that the tenant was running late. So we had to k**l time in their office and seeing a different apartment that we had no interest in. We didn't bother going in to the apartment they tried to show us.

He responded through naked apartments and we set up a showing for the next day.

He never showed nor contacted me, even though I called, texted, and sent emails.

Desmond is extremely personable and focuses on the clients needs. He does NOT waste your time. He had an awesome response time and every single apartment he showed me were all acceptable places to live in. He didn't try to stretch my budget (some brokers like to pretend you can afford rent that is $500 more than you were looking to spend/month). He is willing to help you any day of the week or hour of the day and does a great job finding you an apartment to live in with a time crunch! If you are looking to live in downtown Manhattan, Desmond is your guy!

Working with Desmond Eaddy was a great experience. He was very thorough in finding out what I needed out of my apartment along with what kind of neighborhood would fit my style. He was able to show me apartments in the morning, afternoon and in the evening. We found my new home in the third showing and he absolutely found me exactly what I wanted out of my first city apartment. The application process went so much smoother than I had anticipated after hearing horror stories of what can go into applying for an apartment in New York. In less than a day with the help of Desmond we had all of the necessary paperwork in and the next morning I had my apartment. I enjoyed ever minute of working with Desmond and highly recommend his services. He will be the only broker that I work with on any future moves. It's not every day you find a broker who treats you with such personalized service, walks you through the neighborhood and really just makes it an easy and enjoyable experience!

I got off a plane on a Sunday morning, freaking out that I wouldn't have a place to live, and by Monday evening I had a lease ready to be signed. Desmond met me the second I arrived in Manhattan, he showed me over 10 places, and sorted out my paperwork Sunday night. I would recommend him to anyone.

Desmond was listed as an agent for an apartment I found and wanted to view, I reached out to him and it took him over a week to set up a time with me to view the location. After agreeing to show me an apartment THAT DAY and asking to show me other places, I indicated that I was only interested in looking at the one that he had as a listing. He got very offended and then refused to show me the apartment at all. Incredibly unprofessional, stay away from this guy.

Desmond was the best! That's the truth... On a Sunday morning I reached out, and got an immediate response. I couldn't believe it on a Sunday I saw 7 apartments in West Village and when I found the one I wanted, he did everything in his power to get it and he did. He can make it happen- even for a foreigner like me, with no credit history.

Desmond is a great broker to work with . He provided my roommate and I with honest and practical advice regarding our criteria on out apartment search. His advice helped us land an apartment that was just what we were looking for . Additionally , Desmond was quick in replying to our emails . At last minute , our roommate and I decided to meet with Desmond and he was able to accommodate us . Desmond genuinely cares about his clients and is not out to trick then into any sale ( which is what most brokers are out to do ). If you are looking to work with a broker in your apartment search , I would highly recommend working with Desmond !

Desmond! The greatest broker! The first broker I've met who is a downright good guy, honest, and didn't try to push me into an apartment just to made a sale. He was incredibly supportive from the very beginning, and worked his tail off to ensure my roommates and I secured a fabulous apartment. Will definitely work with again the next time I need to rent a place.

He was very good about managing my expectations, even if it wasn't to his benefit. I definitely recommend him for your NYC apartment search

Desmond was really great! My roommates and I were looking for apartments and needed to get one in the next couple weeks, we were all going out of town for a weekend and were under a lot of pressure to get an apartment fast. We called Desmond asking to meet up with him and he took a meeting with us the next day. The next day we immediately started looking at apartments and the first one we saw we fell in love with. He stayed with us the whole day continuing to show us all of our options. We decided we wanted to first apartment and that day put a down payment and within a couple days the apartment was ours! Desmond worked fast and helped us find our dream apartment. He showed us amazing options, was very friendly and helped us be able to get our dream apartment!

My Roomates and I had been stressing for a while in our apartment search. We had limited time and limited funds, as we are all first year students. We were referred to Desmond through.another student, and we called him and set up an appointment for the next day. Given we were all new to the New York real estate game, we were all pretty stressed and intimidated by the process, as this was a huge step into adulthood. Desmond helped ease our stresses and we found THE apartment the same day. Desmond showed us the perfect place, a dream apartment rather, that was in our budget and in the perfect area. We signed a lease the next week. Desmond is amazing and his friendliness and willingness to help out a bunch of rookie college kids will forever be appreciated. We move into our dream home today!

I have been apartment hunting for about a month, and between the scam-ads and fee-brokers trying to sell me hot air, I became rather frustrated. Until I found Key New York Real Estate, and in particular Desmond and his colleague Sabra. I called in response to an ad, and was invited me to their office. Instead of trying to offload their stock on me, they took time to understand what I wanted, and actually paid attention, and were immediately open and honest about what was genuinely available, and what not. Obviously they did not want to waste their time showing me loads of unsuitable places, nor did they want to waste mine. I highly highly recommend this agency. They are professional, honest, knowledgeable, courteous, friendly, and a great pleasure to deal with!

Desmond helped me get an apartment that I'm very happy with and he did it very quickly, even though the whole area was out of power and cellphone connection due to Hurricane Sandy, we still walked around looking at different apartments until we found one that was perfect for me.

Very friendly and professional service. I can highly recommend.

Desmond and his team were fantastic to work with. They helped my boyfriend and I find a place remarkably fast. Not only did they make sure to cater to what we wanted in an apartment, but they were tenacious patient, and professional!

Once we found our place, it was a team effort to make sure that we were the first ones in line with an application to the landlord.

We were warned that finding a place in Manhattan would not be easy, but Desmond made the experience much easier than we had imagined! Thank you!

Desmond is amazing and made moving to NYC easier than I could have imagined! I sent an email with my preferences on a Saturday afternoon and within hours I was at their office and looking at the perfect place that I rented the next morning. Excellent customer service can be challenging to find, but you will find it with them. If you're looking to move to NYC I would recommend calling Key New York and ask for Desmond. Thank you for all the help! Jenny

Out of all the brokers I have worked with, Desmond's knowledge of Manhattan has been unparalleled. It is obvious that he does his homework to stay up-to-date with what is happening in every neighborhood, and even every building. Even in a tight market, he found some incredible apartments for me, very impressed.
