If you are looking for a real estate agent in NYC, contact David. While searching for an apartment can be a grueling process, David made it easy and stress free. I knew I was in good hands with him. He is extremely professional, knowledgable, and personable. As I've had experience working with other agents in the city who wasted my time by taking me to apartments that were out of my budget or that did not fit my requirements, I was skeptical. However, David actually listens to you and shows you great options. He guided me through the application process, and kept me updated every step of the way. Thank you David for helping me find my dream apartment! I will be sure to recommend you to all of my friends and family.
David was very quick to respond to me. After speaking to him over the phone, he had a clear understanding of my needs and found me the perfect apartment! His knowledge of New York City real estate and his tireless attitude took the pain out of moving. Thank you David!!
David and his team were very quick to respond and helped me find an apartment on the first day of my search. They guided me through the process and made it really easy. Looking forward to moving into my new apartment!
Moving to New York was a difficult process and I had no idea how crazy the rental market was. David was very helpful through the whole process. He showed me apartments in my budget but I didn't realize how little you get for your money in the city. After pushing up my budget David took me around again and I was able to find a great apartment and very happy that David was there to guide me and even managed to negotiate a discount on the rent and got me quite close to my original budget.If you are moving to the city or just want a great agent representing you - contact David.
I recently rented an apartment through David. He listened carefully to my requirements and found the perfect option - I only had to look at one apartment! He was very professional, quick to respond to emails and helped me with all my questions. David guided me through the process of being an 'international' in the NY renting scene, and was well versed on all aspects. His colleague Carlos Manchego was also incredibly helpful. David is certainly recommended.
David is a nice guy, and I did get a decent apartment. All his 5 star reviews are most likely legit, but I believe my experience contained some unique twists that's worth documenting. I have all emails/pdfs to back up what I say. The spelling of my first name is one of kind, so anyone could Google me and find my email to get a copy of anything they want verifiedâ¦ There were 4 agents involved total. The 1st agent I got in touch with was actually a guy named Ryan who I guess is no longer with Keller Williams. He put me in touch with David, and David set up the appointment on my Google calendar to look at apartments. We had a few email exchanges and a phone conversation, but when the day to see apartments came, David needed to suddenly be out of town which happens and I donât hold that against him. His colleague Connie was assigned the task of showing me 4 (ended up being 3) apartments. I told David the max rent I was willing to pay, 3/4 apartments had higher rent than that! I also told him I didnât need a gym and in-building dry cleaningâ¦ I think 2 out those had that as well. I didnât get a good 1st impression of Connie because the 1st thing she asked me was what nationality I am, and she was confused (and corrected her question to ethnicity) when I told her American. Many Asian Americans including myself consider this racist. I was interested in one of the Apartments, and when we went back to the office to start the paperwork, I was pressure to cough up $500 agent deposit in addition to the $100 fee just to go look at apartments. I wouldâve appreciated it if they told me this on the phone of via email because they took cash only. The agent fee was 15% and they wanted that immediately before the apartment was even guaranteed. I did make them wait until at least the owner confirmed before paying the 15%, so it wasnât actually required to pay that immediately which they wanted me to believe. Connie told me that all their apartments could not be found online in sites like naked apartments and street easy, but that turned out to be incorrect. I did a simple search of the building on street easy I found my apartment listed and it said âno feeâ (screen shot saved). When I confronted David about it, he emailed back saying that it was a mistake. When I got the email containing the list of fees from David, I was actually charged an agent fee of 16.66% (2 months rent). When I confronted David about that, he again said that was a mistake. Furthermore, I had to pay about $2000 in more fees (not deposits) that were not advertised - things like move-in fee, administration fee, move out fee, etc.
Working with David was a fantastic experience. He is very knowledgeable and makes the entire process fun. All of my questions were answered so quickly, and I never felt bad about asking them. David, as well as his colleague at Keller Williams, Carlos Mancheno, helped me through every step and showed me several apartments before I picked the one that I liked. The entire efficient process took into my account my schedule, and the fact that I will be making a cross-country move. Highly recommended.
Fast and knowledgeable. David provides exceptional service and was able to show me great apartments. I wish I had called him first and not wasted time with other brokers. In the end I moved in with a friend but as soon as our lease is up I know who I am calling. I would recommend him to anyone else looking for an apartment in New York.
I didn't end up renting through David, but that was through no fault of his. He was extremely helpful and did everything he could to find me what I needed. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in NYC.
Amazing Agent! I was nervous about working with an agent but now that I have worked with David I don't know how I could have ever done with out him. Found an amazing place and can't wait to move in.
David was great. He was very quick to communicate and understand me and my room mate's needs. He sent some options for us to review on email and from their we made a shortlist and went out at looked at the apartments and he helped us apply (and negotiated a lesser monthly rent!). If you need help finding an apartment, use him. You won't be disappointed.
David was a pleasure to work with during my apartment hunt. He took all my requirements into consideration and was able to provide me with many different options. He helped me stay within my budget and found me a place that I love. I would highly recommend him to anyone searching for an apartment in the city!
David was truly fantastic! He listened carefully to all of our needs, and found several great options. He responded quickly to emails and was like an angel guiding us through the renting process. Highly recommend him!!!!
David was great! Super helpful and very quick to respond to emails and phone calls (like crazy quick responses!!). I will definitely be using him for our next move.
David was great to work with during my apartment search. He is very professional yet fun. He listened to my criteria and showed me great places one of which I rented. I would recommend working with David.
Great experience. After trying all day to get an agent to return a phone call, I contacted David and he called me straight away. From there we meet, looked at properties and signed a lease on a great apartment, all within two days.
Being new to the Manhattan real estate scene, after meeting with a few agents, i realised i needed someone a little more professional and efficient. That's when i met David Popplewell. He not only attended to my real estate inquiries with professionalism, ease, efficiency and organization but also showing the ability that he understood my needs and wants, combining them together to find us the perfect place.He not only helped us but educated us on the rental market in Manhattan and most importantly he LISTENS!! Do yourselves a favor, skip the others and contact David Popplewell (and team) they will help you immediately get settled into your new home WITHOUT the drama and constant run around!
David is AMAZING!! I needed to move from California for a job at short notice. He found me a place on budget in my desired area at SHORT NOTICE. He seems to know all the good apartments, it was hard to choose :) 36hours from the time we saw the first apartment to signing the lease. Truly amazing... Thank you David!!!!
I am writing to give David Popplewell my highest recommendation. David possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent broker: he knows his market extremely well; he is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with his clients. He is both very professional and personable. He clearly takes great pride in finding his clientâs the right home. In my particular case, I had just taken on an opportunity with my employer from India, to move to NYC. Though I had been to NYC several times, I had very little knowledge or experience looking for apartments or for that matter knowledge of what neighborhoods I should be looking at, for my price-point; only that I had to find an apartment within a week's time. David was knowledgeable and moved swiftly to find listings that were best suited to my personal needs (amenities-wise, commute from work, etc.). He helped me understand the pros and cons of all the options and responded to all asks with a great deal of patience and all concerns with a sense of urgency. What impressed me the most about David is his due-care, not only did he work with me through every step of the process but also followed up almost, a month after to see how things were going. I am very glad I had David to assist in finding my first NYC apartment that I am extremely proud of and I am very thankful to David!
What a fantastic experience! David was helpful from the moment I called until after I moved into my new apartment. He made the experience so easy, I found a place I love. He was there to assist every step of the way. I would recommend him to anyone!
Expect the exceptional with David. From initial phone contact to execution of lease, the service this man provides is truly outstanding.Getting a job transfer to NYC and with limited time to find a place, David explained the process in detail and found us the perfect apartment in 1 day! Easily 5 stars! I will be referring him to all my colleagues and friends.
I highly recommend this broker! Professional, understood my needs and requirements and found the perfect apartment. I WILL be using him again. A++++
I inquired about one of David's listings and he responded within minutes. He was courteous, professional and listened to my needs and he showed me several apartments. He even negotiated a RENT DECREASE! This guy is the real deal. No usual broker BS. He was refreshing! Can't say enough- use him!
