Desmond and his team did a great job in helping to secure my apartment. In addition to getting me a fair price for a 2 bedroom UWS apartment, Desmond was also able to secure concessions that made the entire process feel like a dream. The process was seamless, the team was professional and courteous, and overall I would definitely recommend others in the future.
Thank you so much Caroline I truly appreciate it you were amazing and so helpful
Desmond was our air traffic controller sending us from apt to apt, each better than the last. He helped us find a great apt.
Desmond and his team were so incredibly helpful! He was so charismatic during the apartment search and was so efficient - we wasted no time and found a place that fit what I was looking for immediately! I look forward to working with him for my future apartment hunts!
Desmond did a great job helping me find an apartment in the Upper West Side. I definitely recommend him!
I initially reached out to Desmond through Naked Apartments and heard from him almost immediately. In the course of an evening, we saw all available inventory, including the newly renovated rent stabilized apartment that I eventually rented (about 5). That night, we worked together to ensure we could file the application that night/early morning. Throughout the Landlord's decision process, Desmond had great communication and a solid relationship with the Landlord's broker. We closed within 2 days.
This very smooth process followed a challenging process with another broker that was ultimately rejected. This would not have been the result with Desmond. He works hard for his clients and is a great communicator and relationship builder.
Desmond was very honest and upfront with my apartment options which I find refreshing, especially in this business.
Desmond was a great broker to work with. He was efficient and helped my partner and I promptly find an apartment that suited all our criteria. We were new to the process and had so many questions and concerns throughout. Desmond was always prompt to respond and provided us with all the details and assurances we were looking for. He was professional, reliable and always had a reassuring attitude. Great guy to have on your side!
It was a great pleasure working. I was relocating to New York and was nervous about apartment hunting. Desmond put me at ease, came with about a dozen apartments in my preferred area and answered any and all questions I had. He secured me a lovely apartment within a day I would fully recommend him without hesitation.
I would highly recommend Desmond, his colleague, Sean McKenzie and Oxford Properties Group for finding you a NYC apartment. Desmond met with us at our initial appointment and explained the intense NYC rental process and the realities of apartment hunting within our budget but did so in such a personable and witty way that it left us feeling confident that we would find our perfect apartment. After working with Sean and finding a great apartment, Desmond took us through the application process back at the office. He was timely, professional and overall, a pleasure to work with.
Desmond was awesome! Glad we came to him for help!
Of all the agents I've worked with since moving to New York over three years ago, Desmond and his team were hands down the best. They had a clear plan and constantly kept me informed, listened to my feedback about each viewing, and used that feedback to take me to places that met my criteria. More than that, they were incredibly prompt and professional and earned my trust as a client.
I would highly recommend using him as your agent!
WOW!!!! Desmond was so amazing!! Can't say enough amazing things about him. Did an amazing job at finding my New York dream apartment with my three best friends. The my Sex in the City dream which we are so thankful for!!! Highly recommend him!!!
Desmond is absolutely AMAZING. After spending way too much time perusing RentHop and other sites, then meeting with a broker who really wasn't showing me any of the right properties, I set up a meeting with Desmond expecting the same kind of experience. He exceeded all of my expectations by a mile and was able to show me a single apartment that I immediately fell in love with! He was constantly warm and helpful, and was able to manage communication between all of the moving parts (my guarantor, my roommate, etc). I highly recommend Desmond if you're looking for a really knowledgeable broker with a good sense of humor!
Desmond and his colleague Sean were incredibly helpful and considerate throughout the entire process of finding an apartment. My roommate and I mapped out our requirements and budget and Desmond followed them to a T, asking us what we liked and didn’t like about each apartment we viewed in order to narrow our search to a place we would absolutely love. When we finally found a place, they made the application process simple and headache free! Can’t say enough good things about my experience working with him and we love our new apartment!
Desmond was extremely helpful in finding our first apartment with 3 other roommates. He made the process easy, even when it got stressful. Very professional, and organized. I feel we could not have found the apartment we now live in without the help from Desmond. Desmond was constantly searching for apartments that fit our needs during the entire process, so it felt like we were finding the best deals. I would highly recommend Desmond and his partner Sean to anyone who is looking for a NYC apartment.
I highly recommend Desmond Eaddy of Oxford Property Group. Desmond was the behind the scenes guy in our apartment search, but I have no doubt that he was instrumental in helping us find the perfect apartment within our budget. He was always professional, answered our questions promptly and kept us informed of what paperwork was necessary to secure a lease. I am grateful that we were able to work with such a great agent.
Couldn't have rented a new apartment without his help! Desmond was a pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend him to anyone in the search of a NYC apartment. He was professional and kept my best interest in mind. I'm so glad I found my new NYC apartment through him!
Desmond did a great job in trying to figure out my preferences and finding me apartments that fit what I wanted. I really respect his work ethic and I love the system that he and Sean have as a team.
Desmond is a strategy-driven broker – he’s eager to show you the best units available, and he has a great system for helping you narrow down your search. Desmond incorporates the concerns of the client heavily into the process. At each unit, Desmond asks the following three questions: (1) what do you like about the unit, (2) what do you dislike about the unit, and (3) could you see yourself living there? These questions force you to evaluate what matters the most in an apartment search. Over time, certain criteria start to emerge as more important than others, and this effectively cuts down on the number of units that you need to visit. In the NYC market where units are listed and sold within a week, Desmond does not waste any time. He mirrored my own sense of urgency in the apartment hunt and found a great undervalued apartment for me in short time. Furthermore, Desmond is polished and professional. Clearly has been in the industry for a long time and has a great sense of the rental process. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Desmond again when searching for my next apartment.
Desmond was very helpful in helping us to find a good value in a downtown NYC rental. He was very straightforward and honest with us throughout the process, which was completed very quickly and easily once we found an apartment we liked. It was truly a pleasure working with him!
Finding an apt in NYC is incredibly stressful and most of the brokers I interacted with are scumbags. Desmond was a pleasure to work with and he made a difficult and annoying experience much more tolerable. What I found particularly useful was that Desmond and Sean only showed me units I would actually rent and focused on aspects that were important for me like renovation and location. A lot of brokers will show you unlivable spaces and waste your time but that was not the case here. I looked at at least a dozen places with numerous brokers and the place I rented through Desmond was bar far the best deal. I would recommend Desmond and Sean to anyone looking for a quality place that you won't get cheated on. No one likes to pay a fee but that is the reality of NYC so it's better to go with someone you trust.
I have nothing but kind words to say about Desmond, and his associate Sean. In one day they were able to show me 12-14 apartments back to back, with efficiency. In that search I saw 3 apartments that had strong potential. He took the time to listen to my feedback after each apartment to better understand what I liked and didn't like to better address my needs. He was honest and knowledgeable about the buildings and the city. You could tell he really wanted to help find you a home you were happy and comfortable with. I was about to give up on hiring a broker as many of the ones I meet prior were pushy, dishonest, or knew nothing about the apartments. As someone who has high expectations and is often difficult to please, Desmond did a great job in finding me the perfect apartment within my price range. Legitimately, the perfect apartment for me. I highly recommend Desmond on your next apartment hunt. I will surely be using his services again when it is time for my next move.
Desmond was very calm and assertive. He quickly understood what our priorities were and he was very helpful.
Him and Sean have a great system. No wasted time. Found a great apartment at the right price!

After one meeting we found an apartment, and after a week week we signed On it.

Sean and Desmond really helped me understand the areas of manhattan and took me to view several apartments which has helped me greatly in finding an apartment, as a foreigner from London they were both very courteous and helpfull.
