Couldn''t be happier! My girlfriend and I were looking for our first apartment together when a friend of ours recommended Motion to us: We contacted them the very next day. Our broker, Lane, was very helpful from the start and guided us every step of the way. Lane was extremely accessible as we were in contact with him almost every single day. He was honest with us regarding unit fees and what some of the pros and cons of each building/neighborhood were/are. My girlfriend and I never felt forced into a situation we weren't comfortable with, and Lane never tried to up-sell us on a unit that was out of our price range. We were also pleased with the transparency when Lane was unavailable. He was able to seamlessly introduce us to one of his associates, Adam, who picked up right where Lane left off. Ultimately we ended up signing a unit while with Adam and had a wonderful experience nonetheless. My girlfriend and I couldn't be happier with our unit and we look forward to working with Lane during our next move.
Lane was extremely helpful, he was one of the first agents I spoke to and it was my mistake to continue reaching out to other agents even after I met him. I ended up coming back to Lane because I got tired of being manipulated and lied to by other agents. The apartments he showed me were all amazing and exactly what I was looking for, he took the time to understand my needs and my budget instead of just showing me places where I would have to compromise on what I wanted or raise my budget. He also wasn’t aggressive or pushy, something I felt with other agents. He was honest and gave me the information I wanted and laid out all facts for me to make decisions, instead of bulldozing over my decision process. I would highly recommend him!
Lane is an awesome agent! We were moving to the city from FL, which was extremely stressful on a pretty tight budget, and Lane found amazing options for us. He listened to what we were looking for and very patiently took us all around the city, giving us great advice and being very understanding no matter what situation arose. He is extremely responsive, even keeping in touch with us and looking for options between visits to the city. Couldn''t speak more highly of him.
Lane is a fantastic broker to work with! Sadly I did not sign for an apartment with him but if the situation was right, I would have signed with Lane. I actually will reach out to him first for my next apartment! He''s a bright and cheery guy while also being a really chill and down to earth person. He is not pushy in an aggressive way and he gives you the space you need to think over a deal. He gives good information and even helps you with pricing a deal that will go through with the landlord/management company of the building.
Lane really made the process of house hunting in NYC so much smoother. Not being American, my boyfriend and I were intimidated by the process but Lane was incredibly helpful and we ended up finding a great place!
Not to be vain but Lane got us the sickest apartment ever! Our place is huge, super nice, in a great area, and under budget! He was easy to work with, responsive (even during crazy late and early hours), available on the weekends, and an overall great option for people moving to New York City.
Also (as trivial as it sounds) Lane is a great communicator over text message. This was super important to me since I''m not always able to talk on the phone. 9 out of 10 would recommend.
Lane is an excellent agent: professional, friendly, and so helpful with our apartment search! He helped us find the perfect place very quickly, which is crucial in NYC. The application process for the apartment we ultimately chose became a bit stressful as both my roommate and I were traveling; Lane made absolutely sure that everything worked out with the building and that they received all of our materials in time. He was incredibly responsive to the many questions we had about the process. Thanks Lane!
Lane was super helpful right from the beginning of my search all the way up to my lease signing. He always responded to my texts and calls and helped me with any and all questions and concerns I had during my apartment search. Finding a great apartment (and a great broker) is a really daunting task in New York City, but Lane made this stressful task and period a much more feasible and happier one. He is really dedicated to finding the right apartment and conditions just for you. Thanks Lane for all of your help!
I recently relocated from san francisco and not ever being to New York before I had no idea where to start luckily I messaged Lane and he found me the perfect place in three days! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! He was kind and patient I will be working with him again once my lease is up!
PSA: Lane is a real broker! ???? We ran into a lot of scams in the beginning of our apartment search and after coming across Lane we were finally put at ease. He was very professional and extremely quick to respond to all forms of communication. My roommates and I all moved from out of state and he made the process smooth by allowing other people to look at various apartments for us. We ended up in an amazing apartment in a great location. Overall lane is a 9.5/10!
Lane exceeded our expectations. We never thought we would find a place this big and this central within our price point. He spent an entire day scouting around with us for an apartment, pulled strings and made this happen.
Thanks a lot Lane for everything.
Your''re the man!
Lane was very attentive and quick to respond to all my communications. He asked about our needs and made sure to cater to them when evaluating an apartment. He was as invested as we were in securing the right apartment and I would definitely recommend him to anyone going through the overwhelming process that is finding an apartment in NYC.
My girl friend was looking all over the city for a good apartment for months. She is a vary detailed person and needed the perfect apartment to her liking. So I decided to help her out and find her a great broker. Lane found the perfect spot with in a week. Lane you the man!!
Lane will tirelessly work for you until you are satisfied. As soon as he got an idea of what we wanted, EVERY apartment shown matched our style and personality. Also, by adhering to no-fee apartments, which he did on his own not because we requested, he selflessly worked for us and not for himself. MOST STRONGLY RECOMMENDED - LOOK NO FURTHER.
Brian and Danielle,
We worked with Lane in our difficult search for the right apartment in NY. Though we did not ultimately go with a place he showed us, his diligence in hunting down as many options as possible impressed us. He dis a great job, and we will look him up the next rime we need to hunt!
