Glenn really helped me and my roomate find our first New York City apartment! He was one of the few honest and straight forward brokers we had come across and really made the process easy and stress free. He really went above and beyond in helping us find/ get approved for our dream place no matter the difficulties along the way. This review is well deserved and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment in the city.
Looking for the perfect apartment for my roommate and I in the city was very stressful but you would never think that was the case if you were lucky enough to have Glenn as the broker. He is straight-forward and forthcoming, which I found to be very refreshing compared to other brokers I've encountered during my apartment hunting in New York City.
I'm usually not one to spend time writing reviews but in this case I just had to because it was so well deserved.
I had been searching for my new home for months using all of the major apartment hunting websites and apps. I probably worked with over 15 different brokers! And still I couldn't find the right apartment for me. Then I met Glenn Lawrence.
Glenn is hands down the best broker I have ever worked with. He asked all of the right questions to make sure he searched his database (which has all of the exact same listing as all of the websites I was searching) to find only the kinds of apartment options I would actually be interested in making my new home. He was thorough and straightforward, and went above and beyond to really differentiate himself from all of the other brokers out there.
Rather than dealing with 15 different brokers from the various apartments you find, I strongly reccomended you use only one: Glenn Lawrence.
Glenn was such a help in the nightmare of renting in NYC.... I am simply writing this because I want others to have the same experience that I did. I wasted so much time with a few other brokers before meeting Glenn, being brought to apartments that weren't the pictures I saw listed online or the prices were different. Glenn knew the area I wanted to be in very well, was very honest about all the listing he showed me and even when I was at work, would send pictures form his phone of apartments he was viewing for me when I didn't have time to be there myself - unbelievable this guy. I doubt other brokers have ever done that for anyone, and for this I want to thank him. Thanks Glenn!
Glenn has broad in-depth knowledge about rental buildings in Midtown West, the area that I focused my apartment search on. He is not some broker who will lure or force you into signing a lease that you will regret later on. He has lived in over ten buildings himself and gotton extensive connections in the rental industry. He is professional and charming. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to find an apartment in Midtown Manhattan.
My husband and I were very impressed with Glenn's transparency throughout our entire search. We had worked with many brokers in the past few weeks only to have been brought to something beyond our budget or just not what was advertised. Glenn went above and beyond in his research for us and we can't thank him enough. We will most certainly be recommending him to our friends. Thanks again Glenn!
I can't recommend Glenn enough. He literally made miracles happen. Besides his incredible determination and admirable work ethic, he's also genuinely interested in helping you achieve the right apartment.
He was wonderful to work with and I'm sending everyone I know to this man. Thank you Glenn!!
I've dealt with multiple brokers living in NYC for so many years and Glenn is by far the best broker I've worked with. He's efficient and really wants to help you find the best place possible, he understands your needs and what you are looking for in order to find you the best home possible taking into account your budget and must-haves. Ideally a pleasure to work with and I would use him again and recommend him to all my friends and colleagues.
I spoke with various real estate agents in an attempt to find a cooperative and knowledgeable person to assist me in finding an apartment. I was fortunate to work with Glenn Lawrence. He found a great apartment for me in a building that is owned and managed by some great people. It is clear that Glenn not only does his best for his clients, he has also created good relationships with owners and management. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a new home.
As amateur apartment renters in NYC, my roommates and I enjoyed working with Glenn. He was easy to contact, and willing to go out of his way to meet up and show the apartment. It was not an easy process getting a lease, but Glenn was pretty organized and helped advocate for everything that we wanted. He also had a lot of helpful advice and wasn't very pushy about signing a lease. It was a stressful process, but he did his best to make all of us feel comfortable and confident in our choice. I would be happy to use him again if I decide to look for another apartment in the future.
Glenn was an integral part of finding the perfect apartment for my husband & I, & our two dogs. An exhausting feat in NYC until we met Glenn. Not only is he a super nice guy, but extremely professional, dedicated, and added much needed comic relief at the right moments. I cannot recommend him enough!
Glenn was amazing. Polite, kind, thorough. He showed me more than twenty apartments (I lost count) and was attentive to my needs, budget restrictions, and particular demands. (II am a picky person!) Unlike other brokers I have worked with in the past, he never seemed icy or put-out. I have had too many experiences in the past with brokers who seemed like they were doing me a favor in working with me. We did finally find an apt, and I am happy, thanks to Glenn. I would recommend him highly, without reservation.
Not enough great things can be said about our apt hunting experience with Glenn. My fiancé and I were looking for our first apt together, and not really sure what we both wanted. He took us out a few times and really listened to our reactions to each apartment- so we were very quickly faced with the problem of too many perfect apartments to pick from. Glenn has great relationships with everyone involved in the process as well- so we felt respected entering every building- not something true of every broker. If your looking for a broker- go with the one that patiently listens to your reactions to the apartments being shown, and adjusts what he shows to cater to exactly what you are looking for and your price point- this is Glenn.
Glenn is an incredible agent. He helped me find my apartment within a weekend; and, my apartment is fabulous. Glenn listens to what you say as well as what you don't say, an amazing characteristic for an agent. By being personable and intuitive, Glenn creates a relaxing atmosphere for you to find your ideal apartment. My experience with him could not have gone any better.
Glenn was terrific. I have been looking in Midtown West for some time, and Glenn offered me four excellent choices in my price range. He was able to accommodate my time schedule, understood what I wanted, and was very easy to work with. An excellent experience. I will use Glenn again next year and am recommending him to friends.
I was fortunate enough to work with Glenn during my apartment search and cannot recommend him enough. Glenn was friendly and concerned about our needs and what we were actually looking for - he was also cognizant of our budget and didn't try convincing us to pay more like many other brokers I worked with previously. He was honest and forthcoming with information about various areas of Manhattan in terms of real estate pricing which we found immensely helpful - in short, if you are looking for someone who knows the market, is willing to help you and out and is going to be 110% honest about things, I'd definitely go with Glenn!
I am a broker myself and Glenn was fantastic to work with. We saw only 5 apartments and he nailed it on the head with the first apartment. He truly knows how to cater to his clients as well as deliver the best quality customer service i have ever experienced. I will definitely be a repeat customer and will be purchasing my future home from him as well! All my friends have his info and will be using he also! Best in the business hands down!
What a find! Glenn is truly a diamond in the rough of the New York realtor market. Working with him felt less like a chore and more like a friendship. That is because Glenn takes the time to actually get to know you. His knowledge of the market is immense. Because of this, he is able to show you what you want to see, he doesn't cut any corners, and, most importantly, he stays within your budget. Glenn will also find time to conform to your schedule - so much so he even rearranged his schedule to show the same apartment three times in one day. Even after you find the perfect place, Glenn will stay by your side to negotiate a better price and help the transition process run as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend Glenn Lawerence to anyone looking to rent or buy in the New York area.
Glenn is great. He helped my friend and I find an awesome apartment, got the rent lowered, and always acted in our best interests. He was prompt, professional, courteous, and is an all around fantastic guy to work with.
I ahighly recommend Glenn and encourage you to to get in touch with him if you want some of the best places and deals in the city.
