Finding an apartment in NY is seriously like no other city. I was beyond stressed trying to find a place while living in Seattle/during COVID. I talked to a couple of other brokers before I found Charles and they were rude, offputting, and just not very helpful. Charles takes the time to actually talk to you, really listens to what you want/looking for, and is overall just the best broker to work with! 10/10 highly recommend.
Highly recommend ! Loved working with Etan, Thomas, and Charles during this process of finding our next apartment in the city. Charles helped us fine our ideal apartment and was extremely responsive to our every question during the application. Best experience by far during my several years in the city and moving apartments!
My roommate and I came to New York on a quick, three day trip to find an apartment. Needless to say, we were stressed about finding the right place for the right value. We were very lucky to meet Charles Narwold from REAL NY early on. Charles was incredibly personable, helpful, and non-pressuring. We were able to bounce ideas off him, and he worked with us as we figured out what we really wanted in an apartment. After we figured out which one we wanted to apply for, Charles was very responsive in getting us the details of the application. He went above and beyond and kept in constant communication with us just so we could be ready to submit our docs. The process from then on was very smooth, and Charles took very good care to make sure we knew what was going on. I wholeheartedly recommend Charles and the REAL NY team to anyone looking for an apartment. My roommate and I loved our experience with them!
Great great great great! Charles Narwold was my representative. After speaking with him for 5 minuets he knew exactly what I was looking for and showed me exactly the options that I’d consider. After viewing 4 apartments, we closed a deal on the first one he showed me. He was also responsive and available. I recommend working with him!
We've all met brokers that have been pushy and way too eager to get you to just sign a lease so they can collect their commission. Not Charles Narwold. He was patient and super helpful in gathering and providing answers to questions that naturally come up from any apartment hunt. Super reliable!
Charles was SO incredible. He was fun, helpful, and knowledgeable throughout my entire move. He knew exactly what I was looking for, and treated me like I was a good friend. Overall a great experience from start to finish.
Jean-Claude and Sally,
If unicorns existed, Charlie would be one of them; the experience I got from him was rare and he was a gem. If gnomes existed, Charles helped my short and sweet stay be fantastic. If dragons existed, Charles was in fire! If wizards existed, Charles is magical.
Charles Narwold helped myself and my roommate find a beautiful apartment. He was very friendly, quick to respond and answer any questions that we had. I am still living in SF looking for an apartment in NY and Michael made this process so much easier!
I would recommend Charles or any of his colleagues if you are looking for a new place, especially if you are moving from out of state!
I worked with Charles and he was FANTASTIC! He was quick and knew exactly what I was looking for on the first shot. I looked online in a specific neighborhood, and he immediately referred me to a building that I overlooked and I LOVE my building now. He negotiated and took care of all back end stuff. As I've worked with tons of brokers before, I can confidently say he was the best I've ever worked with. Highly recommended for sure.
Charles was amazing at helping me find an apartment. He was extremely fast at replying to my messages, even outside of normal business hours (8 pm on a Wednesday!). He seemed to be very familiar with the neighborhood I was interested in and the apartment tours all went smoothly. Charles was even exceedingly patient with me and my indecisiveness.
Finding an apartment in NYC within budget can be a very stressful process but Charles was able to find me the perfect apartment for my needs. Highly recommended.
Jason Van Doornick,
Working with Charles Narwold was incredible. While most brokers constantly pressure you into a decision, often showing you 4/5 apartments with the goal of only showing you 1 that you might actually be interested in, Charles did none of that.
He was extremely open to what I wanted, and showed me all over the city. He is extremely knowledgable and helped me really get my bearings on the city as a whole.
When I finally found an apartment I loved, Charles was extremely helpful in securing it - working hard to make things happen.
Charles is fantastic, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to move.
Charles Narwold! Super nice guy. No B.S. - just likes what he does. Knows Brooklyn really well, and knows how to communicate with BK brokers and MGMT companies. I know nothing about Brooklyn - I’m glad I had Narwold in my corner.
Charlie and Alex turned a weekend of apartment hunting into an hour of apartment finding. Thanks, guys.
I worked with Charles to find a home and thought his knowledge of Brooklyn was amazing! Before going out to look at apartments, Charles took the time to speak with me on the phone about requirements and fees as well as rattle off multiple buildings that he thought would be a good fit for me. He gave me education on what was out there fitting my budget and didn't push me past what I could afford. I really appreciated his honesty and understanding of the Brooklyn market - choose Charles as your agent, you won't be disappointed!
We had a fantastic experience with Charles!
Having never stepped foot in New York, it was a daunting moment for us to look for a place to stay.
We’d read online that New York brokers can be quite pushy in getting clients to sign contracts as soon as possible and, at times, dishonest with tactics such as the bait-and-switch.
Charles was far from these descriptions. He was professional, honest, transparent, yet friendly, helpful and courteous. He helped shortlist the properties to view based on our criteria and placed emphasis on informing and educating rather than pressuring or influencing us, making sure that the decision is up to us.
Although we were exhausted from 3 days of viewings, we had a good time talking with Charles, who had the humility and patience to answer all our beginner-questions. We also enjoyed hearing about his time living in Brooklyn and in-depth knowledge of the area.
We were very grateful for his time, effort and hard work, especially on a beautiful weekend where he could be spending it with friends or family.
Even though we didn't go with the apartments that Charles showed us, he graciously congratulated us with our final choice. He has gained our respect for his work ethic and professionalism.
Thank you once again, Charles. We will certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a place around Brooklyn!
I worked with Charles and had the fastest, easiest, and most seamless move in I have had in NYC yet. Painless process. Thank you. Thank you!
