Don't shame me but I'll admit that I use these reviews to make decisions but almost never leave one but I just had to for this...
Tal is awesome! I moved here last year from California where we do things quite a bit differently and somewhat overwhelming. I found my current place on my own and it was rough and saw things about fees and brokers and swore I'd be fine on my own.
When I started looking for my new place I was hesitant to do anything with a broker but after meeting Tal I realized how wrong I was about letting a broker help because he made the whole process super easy and found me a place that had literally everything I asked for and more.
He was a great guide throughout and couldn't be happier to have worked with him and happy to sing his praises... I'm in NYC for school and not sure how long I'll be here but if I stay and need a new place the first thing I'm doing is hitting up Tal for help!
I recently used Tal to find an apartment in NYC. The experience was so pleasant. He took his time in getting to know what I was looking for and found an amazing unit for me. Couldn't recommend him enough. Thank you!
We worked with Tal Eshel over at ITE Team and it was by far the best experience we ever had working with a broker. He actually listened to what we were looking for and each place he showed us hit the mark. He actually consulted us, and guided us through the process. He is knowledgeable and professional. He consistently followed-up and followed-through. He represented our interests throughout the negotiations and got us the deal we wanted. If you are looking to rent an apartment in NYC I would highly recommend you working with Tal...you would be hard pressed to find a broker better than him.
We highly recommend Tal as an excellent resource if you need to find a luxury apartment. He has seasoned knowledge of the NYC market especially, Midtown West and Hell's Kitchen and honed in on our needs quickly and showed us several apartments each day over about 3 or 4 days. Sometimes we asked to go back to a building we had already seen but wanted to narrow down our choices. Tal was always happy to meet us and take us anywhere we wanted to go. From the beginning, we knew that we were lucky to find Tal and he showed us several apartments that were beautiful with great amenities which made it hard to choose. Tal is patient and was determined to find us a great new home. In the end, after many viewings, we ended up choosing a unit in the first building that he showed us. He respected the process of us needing to satisfy our curiosities by looking at our options in different neighborhoods. He has a very professional "no-pressure' approach which we also thought made the process easier. If we ever had questions, Tal always got back to us with answers/floor plans/prices within minutes and gave us excellent customer service. And all of this while not collecting any fee from us during the pandemic! We cannot say enough good things about Tal. He really is great at his job! Richard & Patrick Sterry
Tal was so professional and relatable! He took what can be an extremely stressful situation (especially in a city like New York) and turned it into something so easy! The only thing that was hard was choosing between all of the amazing apartments he showed us! He really honed in on our unique taste’s, and with his unlimited (or at least it felt unlimited to us!) he found exactly what we wanted! He even knew we would love it before we did! If we ever have to move again we will be reaching out to Tal, and we suggest you do too!
By far the best real estate experience I’ve ever had . Tal helped us find the perfect place so quickly and checked off everything on our list! 100% will recommend to friends and family and use him in the future.
Tal was great to work with. He listened to exactly what we were looking for and stayed within our budget and other criteria. He didn't waste our time showing us places outside our price range or those which didn't meet our needs. He is personable, responsive, understanding and accommodating. He clearly knows the market, neighborhoods and buildings. We could tell he cares about the client and not just the transaction. He helped us find the perfect apartment. Highly recommend!
I worked with Tal to find my apartment and I can't recommend him enough! He was incredibly helpful in showing the apartments and also coordinating negotiations with the apartment owner. I highly recommend him as a broker for NYC apartments.
Tal was extremely helpful in finding a great apartment that fit right in my price range. Most importantly he was really communicative and easy to reach to answer any of my questions at all times which shows that he really cares about his clients.
I cannot recommend Tal Eshel enough! He helped me secure the apartment of my dreams and went above and beyond for me. He was always available for my calls, and I was always able to reach him with any questions. You really feel like you have someone on your side with Tal! If you get the chance, I HIGHLY recommend working with Tal, and can't wait to work with him again in the future!
Are you looking for a broker? or a partner to search for your next apartment? Someone who can empathize with you and your requirements. Someone who knows the industry and has established relationships. Who is direct and unbiased, someone who looks out for your interest. Look no further than Tal and his team. Tal helped us explore the market, negotiated on my behalf, and got us a deal that I thought was impossible to get. He truly looked out for me. His insights and advice throughout the process made the whole process seamless and easy! Cheers Tal, and for anybody else thinking of renting an apartment in NYC do yourself a favor and talk to Tal.” – Mohneesh
Tal was the first broker I''ve ever worked with in my life. Previously, I had always been happy finding good places to rent by myself. When I decided to move to NYC, one of my friends mentioned that she had a great experience with a broker and asked if I wanted to talk to him. My first thought was "probably not", but I figured I had nothing to lose so I asked for his (Tal''s) contact info. I had a call with Tal and was upfront with him about my skepticism with working with a broker. I honestly just didn''t see a reason to work with one given that I''d been fine without one my entire life. However, he seemed very kind (as my friend had said), was very patient in answering all of my questions, and not at all offended about my direct line of questioning, including understanding his incentive structure or asking him to explain the benefits of working with a broker. I was unsure after our first call so I did some more research online about working with brokers in general and thought of more questions. I asked him for another call the next day and we talked for another half hour. What tipped me over the edge to decide to work with him was that he told me "he likes to invest in long-term relationships with clients". Although I had to take his word for it (and my friend''s positive referral, which was a meaningful indicator), I took a chance and said yes. My decision was made easier by the fact that I was moving across the country and that there were no fees on my side whatsoever. I sent a detailed email to Tal with all of the places that I was considering and notes on the kinds of spaces and requirements I had. He planned an 11a-4pm day of tours for me when I visited and we saw about 30 units in 9 buildings. It was a long day but gave me a very good sense of the options. I could also tell that he took my email to heart and tailored the tour for types of units that I would like. I walked away that day with one unit that I loved and another one that I liked and would also consider. We talked further and he offered to show me more units the next day, so we met again and he showed me 6-7 buildings and about 20 units. I really appreciated his willingness to show me even more apartments, even though I was feel pretty good about one unit that I saw that day. We even started an application for that building on the first day, yet he still was more than willing to put in the work to schedule a second day of appointments based on my feedback of places I had liked the first day. The entire time we were together, and during the decision making process, he never pushed me towards one unit or another. At the end, I decided on the second unit that I saw the first day. Price-wise, it was among the cheaper options, but he never pressured me to choose a more expensive one even though he might stand to make more if I did. I also feel lucky because the unit that I ended up signing wasn''t listed on any apartment search websites like StreetEasy! He also helped me with this place because he told me that shortly after we visited it, another person saw it and wanted to apply for it, but since he had showed it to me and had a relationship with the building owner, he was able to take it off the market if I was willing to move forward with an application. It''s an amazing unit at a good price and I feel so lucky to have found it with Tal''s help. I really felt like he had my best interests at heart all the way through, and I have to say that he won me over with his actions. I have talked with others who unfortunately have had bad experiences with brokers. If you go online, you''ll read about these bad experiences (not with Tal, but with brokers in general). However, working with Tal surpassed my expectations and if any of my friends move in NYC in the future, I''d be advocating for them to consider working with Tal because it was such a positive and productive experience. Especially now during the pandemic when the market has flipped to be very buyer-friendly and the buildings/landlords are paying the broker''s fee, I don''t see a reason not to work with someone like Tal.
In my experience Tal has been absolutely amazing to work with. I needed to find an apartment within 2 weeks, and Tal removed all of the stress of searching for me. He showed me lots of apartments that were exactly what I was looking for, and was very conscious to stay within the price point I had set. He also assisted me in getting paperwork in very quickly, during an unexpectedly busy time at work. He tailored everything to fit my situation - don''t know what I would have done without him. Hes easy and quick to communicate with, and I felt he answered all my questions honestly without bias, which in my experience, is difficult to find in a broker. Tal followed up consistently with me, to ensure everything was running smoothly, even after I signed the lease. He was the most professional broker I''ve worked with, and it was clear he had established relationships with the buildings we viewed, which was very reassuring. Will definitely use Tal next time I move, and will recommend him to anyone.
Tal is very knowledgeable, considerate and an all around good guy. Even when I was considering a property he didn''t show me he remained unbiased and helpful. At the end I chose a property he showed me and he remained engaged ensuring I had a good experience after I moved in. If you''re looking for a new place- Tal is the best.
Tal was an excellent broker to work with. Very professional, punctual, and found a ton of options for us to review that matched what we were looking for. Highly recommend.
Tal was wonderful to work with. He picked up immediately what we wanted and showed us the all the best options for our criteria and didn''t waste out time. But he knew what we really needed and found us a great deal that we are so grateful to have now as our wonderful home!
Working with Tal was an absolute pleasure! He was so friendly and helpful that I would never work with any other broker. He showed us exactly what we asked for and even anticipated our needs. He ended up finding us the perfect apartment and was there for us every single step of the way. He was literally available 24/7 for any questions or concerns we had and made the entire process feel more bearable. I consider Tal an expert in his field as well as a great friend. Thanks, Tal!!
Tal Eshel provided first rate, concierge type service in securing a great rental for me.He had all the answers on the steps to go through for a quite tedious rental and lease process. I will contact him any time I need to find another rental property and certainly recommend him to any one else.
Worked directly with Tal Eshel as my broker to find an apartment in November 2020. With the pandemic causing such a renter's market in NYC, Tal filtered out many options and showed me only the best options in my price range. He responded almost immediately to my emails and texts and always picked up my phone calls. He planned all the visits to the numerous buildings perfectly in advance so we never had to wait to see any apartments by having working relationships with multiple landlords and leasing agents throughout Manhattan. He showed me around 50 apartments (my choice) within a week and I found the apartment that brightens your eyes the moment you see it. Then he helped broker an insane deal with 2 months free, free amenities, and making the net effective rent the gross rent. Couldn't ask for a better apartment hunting experience, I'll keep his number in my contacts permanently.
These guys were the best brokers I've ever worked with. They were dedicated to finding me the perfect place and tirelessly helped me search. They are professional, friendly and great at negotiating. They had the best inventory out of anyone I worked with. Must use them!
Tal is very professional and friendly. He is amazing to work with. He always response right away and give update on the property as soon as he can. I had very pleasant experience. I highly recommend him.
I met Tal in 2019 during the research of my first apartment in NYC. What I immediately noticed was not only his extreme kindness but also his very professional and sensitive approach. Searching for a new apt is a tiring process that is even more tiring if you don''t trust your broker. In a city like NY where brokers tend to have a "first come first served" approach, due to the high number of customers on the market, finding a broker who really cares of your needs, that is alwasy there ready to help and support you, with a sincere interest in your final satisfaction, it''s rare and precious. That''s why I choose Tal also for finding my second apartment in NYC, and the search was faster and easier due to this trust and professional support that Tal was able to establish with me since the very first time. Frankly, I will not need any other broker ever and, if possible, I would ask for Tal’s professional service even if I will need an apartment in another city. Absolutely a great choice.
I can''t speak more highly of my experience working with Tal and Idan. From the jump they were thorough, efficient and pleasant. It was clear they are exceptionally knowledgeable and well liked by the buildings we toured. They were consistently responsive and fair with a very human touch to all of our interactions - they truly wanted to help me find the new apartment of my dreams (and they did)! With deep sincerity, I recommend working with them.
I found an amazing apartment with Tal''s and Idan''s help. Both are very professional, patient, nice and respectful! All the apartments that they showed were great. Without a doubt I picked one, where I live now. 5 STARS!
Tal is a great realtor. He was extremely understanding and responsive and did everything he could to make sure I get the best deal and best outcome during my search for apartments. I highly recommend him as he will not disappoint!
I can''t say enough great things about Tal Eshel. He helped me and my husband look for the perfect apartment for the best price. He was super patient, respectful, dedicated and professional. He truly looks out for your best interest and listens to what you are looking for and makes sure you get it. Very friendly, organized and easy to work with which made a process that can be hard very pleasant. If I ever need to find more apartments in NYC I will contact Tal without hesitation.
My husband and I recently worked with Tal and Idan while looking for our current apartment! They were both such a pleasure to work with and made the entire process so easy and stress-free. Tal and Idan were both extremely professional, communicative, and timely. They listened to what we wanted and quickly found us some fantastic options ! Once we found a place we loved, they managed all of the negotiations and made the lease signing easy! They have great relationships with excellent buildings in the city. We absolutely love our current place and can''t thank them enough. We will definitely recommend them to friends who are looking and if you''re looking for an excellent group of brokers, you''ve found them!
Nicole & James S.,
Tal was extremely helpful for us. We saw over a dozen places because we were being picky, but he took care of all the communication, reservations, and planning for each one. He helped us find a new place that we are very happy with now. Thanks Tal!
Tal and Idan are very good brokers that I highly recommend. During the first visit we talked about my criteria and they showed me couple of apartments. From there they were able to identify my preferences and style and they were able to select apartments that only match with what I was exactly looking for. They are also very good negotiator, they really do their best to advice you in your choice and get you the best price possible.
Tal is one of the best brokers I’ve worked with in the city. He was dedicated to show me the best options within my price range all across the city. Additionally, he helped me negotiate the prices very well. He was very friendly and kind and understood what type of apartment I was in the search for. Even though me and my roommate ended up moving to a condo, Tal was very helpful to provide all the information regarding the condo application process even if there were no incentives for him. Overall, this group has a very professional and informational approach and they will always be willing to help you find an apt in any area in the city. Will definitely recommend this group to all my friends and family!
Tal is truly amazing. He was actually the first broker I personally worked with and I''m very thankful for the wonderful experience. He''s very dedicated and passionate about his work. My sister and I ended up moving into a new place that she had originally contacted before I even met Tal but even if he didn''t have any incentives to work for us, he still helped us by trying to negotiate with the leasing office and we really appreciated his help and kind heart. He''ll always be available and happy to help everyone! Awesome man.
Tal is incredible. He listens to everything you want, and tailors the apartment he shows you perfectly. If you see something you’re not into, he stops showing you anything that is similar to what you didn’t like. He’s so helpful and amazing. Anyone would be lucky to work with such a knowledgeable and accommodating agent. Highly recommend working with him!
Very professional, showed my roommate and I a lot of places, and got us a great deal! Would highly recommend.
Without a doubt, Tal is the best real estate agent I've ever dealt with in any city. Trying to plan a cross country move to NYC comes with enough stress, but Tal was just the best. He answered my endless emails within my minutes and arranged viewings over one weekend on a tight timeline.
Once in New York, Tal took us all over trying to find the perfect place. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and fun -- not to mention great negotiator who helped us get exactly what we wanted at a fair price. He was also just fun to be around! I would not hesitate to recommend Tal to anyone, and I will most definitely been working with him again in the future.
It was amazing to work with Tal! He was extremely flexible and communicative throughout the whole apartment hunting process. He made sure to find us an amazing apartment and I would recommend Tal to anyone who is looking for a place in NYC. Could not be happier with the apartment!
Tal was extremely helpful with everything! I was new to NYC and not really sure what I wanted or needed in an apartment. Tal and team walked me through every step of the process in a timely manner, with diligence and friendliness. Highly recommend!
Tal was a fantastic broker. All parts of the rental process were very smooth and efficient. I wouldn't have been able to move into my apartment if it wasn't for the speed in which everything was done. Great service and would suggest him to anyone moving.
Tal has been extremely helpful, patient and sweet throughout my entire apartment hunt in the Upper East Side. If it weren't for him I'd most likely still be searching for an apartment! I would recommend him to anyone that's searching for an apartment in NYC.
I worked with Tal, who was attentive and persistent in finding apartments in my budget, target location, and with my desired amenities. He also negotiated with his company on my behalf. Thanks for the great service Tal!
