My experience with Drew proved that he was a great broker. He was quick to respond, well-informed and helped us sign a great apartment in our budget. He was very accommodating and ensured we had all the necessary documents to get approved for the lease. He was professional and had our best interest in mind when negotiating with the landlord on our behalf. I’d recommend Drew to anyone looking for a broker.
Drew found me exclusive listings that I could not find on any websites or via other brokers. His honesty was another characteristic that set him above the others that I worked with.
I reached out to Drew regarding an apartment he had advertised and he almost immediately emailed me back. We met the same day that I contacted him and saw a variety of different options that were available for my move in date. What stood out about Drew was that he would actually take the time to listen to what was important to me about the home and adjust the search accordingly. He really cares about his clients and does everything he can to make them happy. I ended up renting a different apartment then I had originally contacted him about after he had gathered more information and offered me a much better place walking distance to my office. Due to his relationship with the landlord I was able to pay a reasonable low fee and I am very happy with how it turned out. If you are renting and apartment near Grand Central, and do not want to waste any time; Drew knows the areas availability extremely well and is easy to work with.
Drew Adams was the ideal rental broker. If not for him, I wouldn't have found my dream apartment in the West Village so quickly. After getting in contact, he almost immediately called me to get a sense for what I was interested in. Within hours, he'd sent me listings by email (no need to visit the office!), highlighting one that had just come on the market at an unbelievable price and that we shouldn't wait to see it - he was enthusiastic about an 8am showing, which I gladly entertained.
The apartment was newly-renovated and just north of Washington Square Park at a price that was a fraction of similar apartments.
Together, we filled out an application within the hour. He was directly in touch with the listing agent throughout to ensure that my application would be a success, updating me along the way. When another applicant came in with a higher offer, he strategized with me and even refunded an administrative cost because he felt so bad about the unusual bidding.
Suffice it to say, Drew was absolutely instrumental to the joy I feel from having found the right place. I'd previously dealt with a handful of other brokers who were challenging to communicate with, didn't understand what I was looking for, difficult to meet with, and plain old shady - Drew was by far the best of them all.
For these reasons, it's my pleasure to provide an enthusiastic endorsement!
Drew was very easy to work with. He made me feel comfortable, was patient taking the time to walk me through everything, and was never pushy at all. From our initial contact to signing the lease he made the entire process seamless. He was always prompt and he was even able to negotiate the rent down.
Highly recommended. I traveled from NC to NYC to find a place to move asap and he showed me exactly want I asked for. Took me view nice apartments and once I found the place I liked he made sure all the paper work was handled correctly. He's very easy to communicate with, very professional, and always answered my calls or texts. It was great working with him.
