I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience working with Larry on the purchase of my NYC apartment. Being a first-time buyer, he guided me through every step of the process, from offer to closing, while offering his expertise in the NYC market. Larry was very accessible and responsive and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to rent or purchase an apartment.
While other NYC brokers told us we would never find an apartment that matched our wish list, Larry listened carefully, patiently accompanied us to numerous buildings, asked the right questions of the sellers' brokers - and ultimately found us our dream apartment. He provided expert guidance on making an offer and then meticulously prepared our Co-Op Board package. Larry also worked tirelessly to ensure the successful marketing & sale of our previous apartment. Whatever time of the day or night, Larry was always available, offering smart business advice and a calming presence. His background in accounting/finance is a huge asset and I always felt that Larry truly had our best interests at heart. I couldn't be happier with the services Larry provided and I highly recommend him to anyone navigating the NYC real estate market.
Larry was so nice to work with - he was knowledgeable, and accommodating to our needs - showing us properties that matched our need and budget and sharing insights about the NYC area markets. He is a delight to work with - but if there were one thing I could say stood out about Larry it would be that it appeared he really cared about getting the right fit for the client, and wow, that's really great in an industry that's so often about the deal and not the person. I would recommend working with Larry if you're coming to NYC on a budget, looking to get the most bang for your buck!
Larry is really wonderful-- he found me a rent stabilized apartment and helped me with the complex process of having two guarantors. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the market and even saved me from wasting money on an application fee for an apt I would not qualify for-- he helped me find something great and I recommend him very highly.
Lawrence called me back immediately. I really appreciated that he called *just* to tell me that he didn't currently have any apartments that matched my search criteria (as opposed to trying to show me apartments beyond my max desired rent, etc, which happens more than one would wish). In this tough business called NY real estate--I've searched for many apartments over the years in the City-- that's a true mark of a serious professional with integrity.
Just days after hurricane Sandy, I was stuck in a tight spot, I needed to find a new place fast. I was looking for a spacious apartment in manhattan with nice finishes/amenities on a tight budget. As many of you probably know by now, that is not an easy task. Not only did he deliver on the apartments, he was also prompt and responsive every step of the way. This was far and away a different experience from others I have dealt with before, especially in light of the circumstances surrounding the storm. In the end, I did not rent through Larry because I really like my current apartment building and a more affordable option opened up here. Larry is an exceptional broker-organized and genuinely helps you weigh your options and find a good match (even if it means that you don't rent through him). I will definitely give him a call next time I am looking.
We had the pleasure of working with Larry Mackler at Anchor and it was an awesome experience! We were referred to him through one of my friends and from the beginning he was extremely helpful and patient. We spent a couple of days seeing about 10 apartments and Larry was always very positive and upbeat the whole time. He was very professional and responsive to all my questions and concerns. In the end, we found a beautiful spacious one bedroom in a small doorman building on the Upper West Side. We are in love with our apartment. We barely shut the blinds because the views are so extraordinary at all hours. I am so grateful that Larry knew to show us this place and that he helped us win it even when it seemed sure it was going to another couple!! We are extremely happy with his services and are going to recommend him to all our friends and family!
