Ryan is a 'Rock Star Realtor'! From the moment he responded to our inquiry, he was relentless in his search for the perfect apartment for us, scanning availabilities daily and going out of his way to research listings in detail for our desired floor plans, space and long list of requirements for apartments within our budget. While we ultimately chose to rent in NJ for other reasons, and this was out of Ryan's licensing jurisdiction, we would not hesitate to work with him again for future searches in NY. Ryan is extremely knowledgeable, reliable and respectful, and does not pressure or try to influence you to suit his needs. He works diligently to help clients and understands and supports their best interests. Thanks Ryan, for all your hard work and follow through!

I am so lucky to say that I have had the pleasure of working closely with Ryan. This was the first time I have used a broker, and he went beyond my expectations for the services and support a broker could provide to their client. My roommate and I were moving from Manhattan to Sunnyside, looking for a two bedroom apartment, with only 10 days before our move out day. This situation lead my roommate and I to both be very nervous and stressed out, asking every little detail one could possibly imagine. Ryan responded with no hesitation, with accurate and clear answers. He assured us multiple times that everything was going to work out and he would do everything in his power to make this work. Ryan sent me texts keeping my updated with our application process every step of the way, which helped to put my nerves at ease. After moving into our apartment, Ryan would continue to answer our calls and help us with any small question we may had. The next time I move I will immediately call Ryan. Do yourself a favor and look no further for a highly recommended, professional, kind, and knowledgeable broker. Ryan will do nothing but make your moving process a breeze. :)

I contacted Ryan rather last-minute in July because I needed to find an apartment in Midtown West come August 1st. Ryan was really approachable, honest, and most importantly a solid broker who broke (ha) the process down quickly and easily for me. He also gave my roommate and I good suggestions for options for flex 2 bedrooms. I really appreciate the fact that Ryan actually took the time to find places that were actually within our budget—in my past experiences, brokers haven't been really great at doing that. Would definitely recommend Ryan to anybody in need of broker in the New York City area.

Ryan, has been absolutely the most wonderful and respectful agent that my boyfriend and I have had the pleasure of working with. Ryan made our first time apartment searching a breeze with his very amazing patience, and understanding.
Aside from being EXTREMELY responsive with us about our search, he was more than willing to help us get what we wanted, and was beyond willing to work around our schedules, which was purely magic!
We owe plenty to Ryan, and his wonderful personality- right when we were ready to take a break from the searching we found our apartment and are so much more than happy with it!

This was my first time utilizing a broker to look for an apartment in NYC. I was so incredibly surprised with the amount of time, energy, enthusiasm and drive that Ryan invested in my case. Not only did he actively listened to my “must-list” (and it was a long list) but we actively thought about prioritizing, adjusting accordingly and debated in detail all of our options.

If you can, please hire Ryan as your broker – the energy and commitment he will demonstrate to your case is unmatched!

[Added by: Naked Apartments] It's no surprise that trying to relocate to NYC from out of state on short notice is stressful. You read/hear/see things that kind of make you wonder why/how people live here!! Then you meet an agent like Ryan and you know it is all going to be okay.

I submitted an online inquiry about a unit that went to Ryan, and he got back to me super quickly, politely, and prepared. He asked me great questions to see what I wanted and informed me all about the process. I scheduled an apartment hunting trip for 3 days with my fingers crossed, and arranged to meet up with Ryan to view some options. We went to several buildings in a couple of neighborhoods because he was invested in helping me find a good fit for a big move and new job. I was so impressed (and relieved) to see that he was knowledgeable about what we saw, the differences in areas, transit, amenities, etc. but also that he obviously takes pride in what he does. A serious breath of fresh air!

Ryan is extremely resourceful, thorough, and engaged in the process while also being very patient and kind. I'd absolutely recommend Ryan to newbies like me along with native New Yorkers. It is ONLY due to circumstances beyond his control that I didn't rent an apartment through Ryan-fate brought me to a unit I saw before meeting him and it came back on market. Otherwise it would have been a lock.

Do yourself a favor: go with someone who cares because Ryan will do his best for you!!!

I would highly recommend Ryan as your agent. He is very committed, involved, reliable and helpful. Provided multiple options and alternatives as well as relevant info to consider. He truly made my move to NYC from Europe a whole lot easier. Personal attention and great after care too.
Thanks again!

Ryan is responsive and patient. He listened to what my sister and I needed, price range, location and tried to narrow it down for us so that we didn't have to run around in the NY heat. Apartment hunting can be very tiring but my sister and I chose to rent one of the first few apartments we saw and all because Ryan was a good listener and was able to identify just what we needed. I would use him again.

Ryan is awesome. Apartment hunting was not fun but Ryan worked hard to minimize our stress level. He listened carefully to what my husband and I wanted in our new home and went above and beyond to find listings that would suit our needs. We also appreciated him proactively arranging for multiple viewings in the same neighborhood. This maximized our time and really helped us get to know the area. He found quite a few apartments for us that we loved. Even though we ended up renting another place in the end, we were very happy that we worked with him and would highly recommend him to everyone.

I think Ryan was the nicest agent I've ever had. I have a general distrust for agents, since I have dealt with a lot of liars and scumbags, but I never felt like Ryan was BSing me or giving me the runaround. If he's not truly as genuine as he seemed, then he is an amazing actor who is really good at his job, but either way he found me an apt that I'm really happy with so I recommend him 100%.
