Worst broker experience I have ever experienced. He showed me an apartment that I liked and one of my questions to him was who were the upstairs neighbors. He told me they were "the nicest people he has ever met" since he also got them their apartment about a month earlier. I believed him and leased the apartment. Those "nice" upstairs neighbors turned out to be some of the nastiest people I have ever met who have given me hell ever since I moved in.
I ended up calling Liam back to ask for advice and he said that he would be willing to find me another apartment, free of charge. I agreed and he ended up showing me a couple more apartments after which he said he would take half of the broker fee. He jumped from free to half off with no explanation. That left a sour taste in my mouth. I then tried to get in touch with him a week later and he ignored all my calls, texts and emails. Horrible experience that no one should deal with.
Moral of the story.. these are brokers so DON'T believe everything they say since all they want is to make a quick-buck being the middle man. I don't understand the function they serve. Don't bother paying a broker fee in NYC since there are a ton of no-fee apartments out there.

I rented an apartment from this agent.

Liam Mccarthy Responded:
I'm sorry you couldn't work things out with your upstairs neighbor. Mgmt ordered upstairs family to comply w/lease; they did, but not to Dan's satisfaction. Mgmt agreed to let Dan out of his lease; I showed him 3 apts and didn't hear from him for 2 weeks (fee issue my fault; forgot what I had offered but never corrected). 3rd contact for apt already in contract. I hope you can find the right apartment, and sorry the one I found you didn't work out.

Liam was very flexible with appointments for viewing, was able to knock down the monthly rent a bit and work around my move date. Very satisfied. Thank you.

Liam is without a doubt the go-to guy for the Windsor Terrace, Kensington, & Ditmas neighborhoods. He showed me one of the best apartments I've seen in my entire search, was friendly and had a lot of great information about the apartment and the building. We didn't end up renting through him because we decided that the neighborhoods he works in are not for us commute-wise, but I wish they were!

Renting an apartment in New York City can be daunting for anyone, but we had a particularly tricky situation: a long-distance relocation with a less-than two week turnaround time. With an 8 month old. And two cats. Liam moved mountains for us. He responded quickly to my inquiry, we were able to meet with him right away, and he got our little family into a great apartment in an awesome neighborhood within a week. He was courteous, responsive, and professional - we couldn't have asked for more. I'd recommend him highly to anyone.

Liam was incredibly helpful and pleasant to work with. He has great rentals to offer and was communicative, friendly, and responsive throughout the process. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area where he maintains listings and has great relationships with the key players (landlords, management, etc.). His fees are reasonable and well worth it. We found an apartment through him that matched our needs perfectly. It was wonderful to work with him and I highly recommend him.

Liam listened to our needs and limits, checked his inventory and helped us land a great home!
His attentiveness was a rare treat, after working with brokers over the past year. This is the man to work with if you want to move, but not compromise your hopes! When it's time to move again, he will have our business.

Liam is the best broker I ever worked with. He was very pleasant to deal with and he worked around my schedule. He was honest and upfront about the apartment and the landlord. My husband and I were looking for an apartment in Windsor Terrace for a while with no luck. We were beginning to get discouraged. When I saw Liam's posting I reached out to him. He called me immediately and set up an appointment with me to view the apartment. Before we even scheduled and appointment he gave me all the details of the apartment. Rent, amenities, pet policy, and address so I could Google map it and see exactly where is was located. He was on time for the appointment and was very thorough when he showed us the apartment. He showed us all around the building and the even walked us around the neighborhood. He showed us where the subway was, the park, and the nearest grocery store. He even told us where the closest pizza and Thai restaurants were!
During the application process he was very helpful. He negotiated with the landlord on our behalf and kept us informed every step of the way.
Overall, he is an excellent broker and I would recommend him.
