My roommates and I had to find a new place because our lease was coming up. All of us were beginning to get very nervous because we could not find anything for our price. That all changed when we met Ben, he explained to use what locations are the best for the price points. He ended up taking us to Murray Hill and found us a stunning 3 bedroom apartment for an amazing price + he was even able to get the rent down $100 a month for us! I cannot thank Ben enough, he called to check up on us and is an amazing advisor. A pleasure to work with!
Benjamin was the best realtor I've worked with to date. Ever since the beginning, he was always prompt when returning calls or emails. He would constantly be sending me new listings and narrowed the results down for me in a perfect way! He never went above the budget we gave him. He answered all of our questions and walked us through each step of the paperwork. Ben's work was much appreciated.
I cannot express my appreciation for Benjamin! He made my home buying process so quick and easy. He gave me constant updates. He answered all of my questions quickly. He would meet with me and explain definitions and obligations along the process. I will definitely be coming back to Ben for my future home buying experience. Thank you again!
Moving here from LA, I was not sure about anything. I did not know where I wanted to live. Meeting Benjamin was the best thing that happened to me, he showed me options in all different areas, Upper East Side, Murray Hill, Kips Bay, Tribeca, and Nomad. I started to understand what each area has to offer and decided to move forward with Nomad. Thanks to Benjamin, I am extremely comfortable with my decision as he showed me a lot of options. He was so generous, if you are looking for an apartment, he is the right guy! Highly recommend!
Ben was extremely helpful with all of my queries. I didn't have to use a real estate agent as luxury buildings were no-fee anyway. However, I chose to use Ben based on the reviews he got on this website, and I do not regret a single second of doing it. The decision came down to two apartment buildings right across from each other and I got Ben's honest opinion about both buildings. He provided me with an objective view of the two properties, without pushing me to go for a particular one. At the end, I made a decision and we're extremely happy with it. Ben also went above and beyond by helping us with our move and with any other miscellaneous tasks we needed to do. Highly recommend!
Ben is literally a life-saver! I haven't look for an apartment for years, even harder coming from a big space and going much smaller. Ben was so gracious, warm, professional, kind, patient, and understanding. As soon as he had an idea of what I was looking for he immediately complied lots of apartments for the two days we went out. He ended up actually making this process fun for me because his attitude was so warm and loving, that he actually made me want to find an apartment. He really knew what he was talking about. He understood the buildings that he was showing me and had personal connections with many of the leasing agents. And he explained everything to me that I didn't understand. He wrote down everything, collected floor plans, took pictures, send texts, was always on-time meeting me, and his communication was A+. I highly recommend Ben and I will absolutely call him if I am ever looking again. I had worked with two other brokers before meeting Ben and I can't begin to tell you what a difference it makes working with a true professional.
My roommates and I are so lucky to have met Ben. He goes the extra mile for you and finds you the best apartments based on your specified criteria. He literally took 4 hours out of his day for several appointments to show us all the possible options for us. Over the past 2 years he has found us 2 great apartments (one in Kips Bay & one in Hells Kitchen). Both apartments were cheap when compared to similar units and have provided us with everything we requested.
From the very beginning, Ben was just on top of EVERYTHING. We had an initial sit down to talk about neighborhoods, our budget, etc. and he worked to put together a plan that felt to us, so personalized and yet so professional. It wasn't uncommon to me to receive emails from him in the middle of the night with updates or just checking in. He was also very much in tune with what our priorities were when looking for our apartment.
On top of everything else, Ben guided us through the entire process with a smile. He told us step by step, the easiest way to do this and the best way. Besides his sharp professionalism and attention to detail, he brought personality, humor and levity to every single day, something that two nervous first-time renters appreciated so much. I guess it goes without saying, but Ben will be our agent of choice for all of our future real estate endeavors as he made this process so enjoyable for us.
Ben was super helpful throughout my search. Prior to meeting Ben, my wife and I were struggling to find our new home. Ben made sure to get exactly what my wife and I were looking for in just a day! He set up a couple of appointments according to our preferences and had great relationships with all the leasing agents. He worked his absolute hardest to find my wife and I the best deal. He was very professional in all our communications and responded quickly and knowledgeably to all my inquiries. I cannot thank him enough, highly recommend!
He was very attentive and went out of his way to help me find an apartment. I would definitely recommend him to others looking for a real estate broker in the city.
