Matt was one of the best brokers I have ever worked with. He was on time for our meetings, knowledgeable about the area, stuck to the budget and never tired of showing me more apartments — even when I was willing to give up. He told me that he doesn’t take on too many clients at one time so that he can devote the time necessary to each — and that definitely came through to me. I never felt like he was looking at his phone contacting the next client. Matt went out of his way to make the lease signing easy — a time when many of the realtors would have walked away and let me handle it — and after it was signed made sure to contact me to make sure everything was as promised. I have already recommended him to a few friends and will be sure to use his expertise in the future.
I would highly recommend Matt. Matt helped to find the perfect place for my daughter. From our first encounter with Matt he was professional and understood very quickly what we wanted. He took time out to show us the options and was very patient with us. I was truly amazed when he went above and beyond to help with some furniture arriving prior to move in. I was even more impressed when he showed up on move day to ensure everything went smoothly.
I will be using Matt again in the future and highly recommend him as one of the best realtors in a New York!
Can’t say enough good things about working with Matthew. I fully trusted him and his opinion after having worked with previous shady brokers in finding other apartments throughout the city. He was great in answering all of my questions honestly even if it was not what I wanted to hear about a place. I could tell he genuinely cared about making sure we found a place that we would not regret living in, and didn’t put any pressure on us to make a decision. He also helped us to negotiate the rent price down a lot from what it was listed at by the apartment owners.
10/10, recommend using him.
I highly recommend working with Matt to find your next home!
He is the perfect balance of assertive and chill. He actually listened to what I wanted and need for my family’s next apartment, and showed me those opportunities.
You can not go wrong with Matt!
Matt is the most kind and thorough broker ive ever worked with. He makes visits and provides video of the space with proper narration if i cannot make it to certain showing. He researches the building of interest to give me a full background check before recommending a place. all in all the best!
Meeting Matt was truly a serendipitous event. In the midst of searching for an apartment and sending out a few inquiries, I messaged Matt regarding a listing while on the Subway home from work. Before reaching my destination, I had already received a reply from him and a plan for a phone conversation to discuss my apartment search. From our first conversation, It was evident that he was extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable. By the next morning he had already compiled a list of apartments that met my search criteria— and I was a bit particular in regards to what I was looking for in location, size, budget, etc. Less than 24 hours after first meeting Matt, he had found me a fabulous apartment that checked off all of the boxes on my “list.” He was an invaluable resource to help quickly facilitate the application process. Matt’s calm demeanor, optimistic attitude and charismatic personality automatically instill a sense of trust. He makes finding an apartment in NYC (one of the most stressful experiences possible), a calm and anxiety-free experience. He is very reachable and responsive and always looking for the most up-to-date listings. He always goes the extra mile to look into inquiries you send him as well. He sets out to find people their perfect home, and truly achieves just that. I can confidently say that Matt will always be the one I contact when searching for an apartment and have already recommended him to several friends and clients I work with. With Matt on your side, you know that he is fully devoted to your search, honest and trustworthy; A true diamond in the rough in the world on NYC real estate!
This semester was chaotic for me as I was faced with a sudden evacuation from my previous apartment due to faulty construction. On top of that I was away for break when I heard that my move out date was changed to an earlier date, so I had to contact the agents through phone calls/text messages. Matt was the most attentive out of all the agents I contacted, where he even sent me videos of the streets the apartments were in. He helped me narrow down my options before even returning to the city, which shortened the actual apartment hunting process to two days (which was great for me as I had to move out at the end of the week). He was very helpful and nice throughout each step, and really took the stress out of my rushed apartment hunting process. On top of that, he also recommended me some cheaper moving companies, and checked in with me after I settled into my new place to make sure I liked it (which btw I love my new place). Thank you Matt for turning a potential nightmare into a surprisingly pleasant experience :)
Matt is very polite, punctual and on top of things!
Left a great impression as a professional and a person.
Thank you for taking care of us!
HIGHLY recommend Matt!
He was awesome at helping me navigate the apartment search in the West Village.
What stood out most about Matt was his inside information about apartments that hadn't been listed. In a challenging real estate market like NYC, you want someone with Matt's tenacity, experience and knowledge to make the process easy.
I am so grateful that my friend recommended using Matthew as an agent for my Soho rental. I was looking for very specific criteria. Not only did Matt tick all the boxes, but he also went above and beyond.
Thank you so much for helping us find a home . You were know the city and the market inside out...you were readliy available at all times. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I know we weren’t the easiest clients, but you were there...you made everything happen and your quick agility landed us an amazing home. We HIGHLY recommend you to anyone looking for someone to look out for their best interest as a client, shoot straight, and go the extra mile! You truly have the client’s best interest at heart from the moment you meet them until the job is done- it almost felt like having a friend or family member in the business (even ended up negotiating us a lower rent btw!)
Thanks for everything!
Quite possibly the best experience I’ve ever had finding an apartment in NYC.
We have all heard the horror stories, and as a parent finding a place for my daughter to live while going to school, this is all I think about.
However, Matt (or Finkle as we call him), was a ray of sunshine. He communicated the week before we flew in. Understood that we only had 2 days at best. He understood everything we were looking for and sent video, photos and even FaceTimes us at spaces. We saw the top picks and went with the first place we saw in person.
Our trip to NYC to find an apartment turned out to be an hour or so and we ended spending a lovely mother daughter weekend together without the worry.
Thank you Finkle!!
As a renter in NYC for nearly a decade, having been through many agents and apartments over the years, I can confidently say Matt presented the highest level of service I have experienced. He is incredibly thorough. He is transparent, trustworthy, detail-oriented and an overall pleasure to have gotten to work with. Matt made the search as pain-free as possible. He works quickly and truly listens to the needs of his clients. Highly recommend!
