Moving into or within a big city can feel overwhelming the way few other things can, and nobody understands that better than Ben. He's been a renter and a real estate investor in three different continents and moved into apartments in cities where he didn't know a single soul. Whether you're coming from overseas to chase your dreams in the city that never sleeps, or just making the interminable journey from Brooklyn to Manhattan, Ben can empathize. He's renovated apartments with views of the Acropolis in Athens; he has biked around the Forbidden City of Beijing before finding a duplex that fit just right, and he's sold clothes to afford rent for a tiny studio in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Basically, if you need an agent that knows it takes time and effort to find the perfect place, and is willing to put in that effort just for the love of the game, then you've come to the right place.
Ben knows that when renting apartments it can feel like everyone is out to get you. He puts in the personal touches to assure each and every client that agents from RNY are committed to putting a smile on everyone's face when that last contract is signed and the move-in date is set.
Ben studied English literature and Japanese language at The Ohio State University. When he's not hustling to root out the absolute most magnificent apartments in New York City for his clients, you can find him playing his saxophone, writing fiction, or painting dollhouse miniatures.
