Sean was great to work with. He really took the time to craft a profile of the apartment I was looking for and listened to all the specifications I listed out. He was patient while he answered all my questions and was super efficient at getting a list of all available apartments to show. And even after that, he wasted no time in arranging available times. He is fast and efficient, which was definitely appreciated especially at the rate apartments get scooped up so quickly in NYC. I highly recommend Sean to anyone looking to rent in New York City.
Sean really made my second moving experience in city an enjoyable one. He was attentive to my wants and needs and really showed me a variety of options which I appreciated. This is my second time working with Sean and it won't be my last. I love my new apartment just as much as my first apartment he helped me find. It has everything I wanted and more. Appreciate him and all of his efforts that be put in to make this as easy of a process as possible!
Sean was exceptionally professional and most of all supportive through the whole process. Navigating the NyC market can be a crazy undertaking, but I always felt in good hands. He was on the ball, but not too pushy, and I appreciate that. Would totally use him in the future.
Sean went out of his way to make sure that we had the right apartments to view based on our requests, and that we knew not only about the apartment, but the neighborhoods and buildings of each to help us make a more education decision. Couldn't be happier with the outcome. Our place is East village is perfect!
I've used Sean twice now and for an office search. Awesome guy, friendly professional and gets it immediately.
Looking for a seasoned broker who won't waste you time his your guy!
Thanks for everything.
Sean McKenzie was amazing to work with. His professionalism and outgoing attitude was exactly what we needed. He was open and honest about what we were doing and knew exactly the home we were looking to rent!
As a native Manhattanite I was set on finding a place in NYC on my own, but pretty early on in my search I felt like the system was working against me and the tedious process took the fun out of something that should be exciting and enjoyable. A friend of mine who had used Sean to find her place recommended I use him, promising he was a cool guy and would find me a place THAT DAY.
And he did! The first place Sean took me to is where I am writing from right now. He managed to find an apartment that fit my tight budget/ picky neighborhood requirements with TWICE the amount of space you would normally find in NYC for the price. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it and he took immediate action, putting together my package and anticipating any loopholes that could cause me to lose it.
A week from the day we saw the apartment I was picking up my keys and moving in. Now not only do I have the apartment of my dreams, I have someone I can call with any questions or concerns with the building, landlord, etc. I would recommend Sean to anyone and everyone in a heartbeat - he's professional and great at what he does but doesn't lose his sense of humor or cool in the process !
Sean was an excellent broker, who I'd highly recommend. He was patient and thoughtful in showing my roommate and I apartment options. Once we located the ideal place, he was diligent about coordinating all of the paperwork to make for a smooth approval process.
Sean and Ben are extremely professional and I honestly know they have my best interest at heart - which is a rarity in New York City!
My roommate and I were trying to find a 2 bedroom apartment on a very tight budget and saw about 15 apartments before finding Sean and Ben. Every apartment we had seen before were way too small with no living rooms and every other broker did not listen to our needs. Immediately when I inquired about a listing on RentHop, Sean reached out to me and just by the professionalism of his email I felt like someone was finally going to help us and care about our search. I moved forward with scheduling an appointment with them and Ben took us around the city to start our search. They were also very accommodating with meeting after 5:30pm, as my roommate and I could not search for apartments during the day with our current jobs. Needless to say, the first apartment that Sean and Ben showed us was it! There were 2 apartments in the same building and we wanted either one! I couldn't believe our terrible search was over that fast, all because they actually listened to what we wanted. We hurried back to their office where Sean was waiting for us with applications ready to sign.
The next day we could not get the apartment due to the landlord's restrictions and us not being able to use a guarantor (not Sean or Ben's fault). Sean stayed on the phone with me all day working on the issue, and once I had to withdrawal our application from the apartment, he discussed all my options with me moving forward to ensure I was able to find a place before my move out date. He suggested that I try to stay in my current apartment and resign my lease (proving that he wasn't in it for money, but genuinely was trying to help me). He stayed in contact with me until I worked it out with my landlord to stay in my current apartment. I now know who I am calling for any of my future moves in NYC! I have and will recommend Sean and Ben's services to all of my friends. Truly genuine people!
One of the best agents I have ever worked with, Sean is very professional and incredibly hard working. Though the search process was tedious and tiring, he was able to find us an incredible place within 6 hours. He asked all the right questions and was quick to respond to our concerns and questions.
He comes highly recommended!
Christine J ,
Sean was an immense help to me and my roommates ("LITERALLY A LIFESAVER"- direct quote from us). We made a last minute decision to move to New York in July and contacted Sean after a friend of ours recommended him. Within seconds of reaching out, he responded to our cries for help, laying out a detailed plan for us to follow. He gave us the lowdown on the entire leasing process in NYC, and guided us the entire way. When my roommate flew in to see apartments with Sean, we landed an incredible apartment with an August 1st starting lease after only six hours of looking. The rest of the process, while tedious, went in an incredibly timely fashion, as Sean's incredible attentiveness made sure our questions never went unanswered as we completed all of the paperwork. Definitely the best in the business, Sean will make sure he can incorporate as much of your "dream checklist" as he can while keeping you on budget.
Melissa and Gina,
Sean made the process of finding my first apartment easy and enjoyable. Even though we had a low budget for Manhattan and the apartment hunting season was in full swing, he lined up no fewer than nine different apartment that were either spot on, or close to, what my roommate and I were looking for . He was patient in answering any questions and allowed us plenty of time to look at each place. After each showing, Sean would help us rank the newest apartment in comparison to the prior ones we had checked out . His professionalism and knowledge of the NYC apartment scene was wonderful and really helped with our search. After choosing one, Sean helped make the approval process go smoothly, was very prompt in getting back to us, and we signed the lease within our time constraints. All moved in and the apartment is working out great! I would highly recommend him to anyone who looking for an apartment in NYC.
Seans great! Very pleased with our experience.
Sean was incredibly helpful throughout the entire apartment searching process. He made sure to ask all the right questions in order to find an apartment that suited my needs and interests, and presented me with several very appealing options. Ended up with a fabulous studio apartment in a wonderful location. I highly recommend working with Sean!
Sean is very organized and patient. My daughter was able to afford a beautiful apartment in a safe building and neighborhood. We never would have found anything similar on our own. Sean answered my texts immediately. The transition from looking at apartments to the signing of the lease was quick and easy. Thank you Sean!!!
Sean made the process of finding my daughter's first NYC apartment a much more pleasant experience than I had anticipated. Even though we had a very modest budget for Manhattan and the apartment hunting season was in full swing, he lined up at least nine different apartment that met our criteria. He was patient in answering our many questions and allowed us plenty of time to look over each place without feeling rushed. After each showing, Sean would followed up with questions about our overall impression and helped us clarify what was important to us. His knowledge of the neighborhoods and the commuting times for each place was outstanding. All this helped when we were organizing apartments in terms of preference. After we picked the perfect apartment, Sean helped make the approval process go smoothly, was very prompt in getting back to us, and we signed the lease within our time constraints. Because of Sean's professionalism, knowledge, patience and graciousness, I would recommend him highly to anyone who looking for an apartment in NYC.
Of all the agents I've worked with since moving to New York over three years ago, Sean was hands down the best. He had a clear plan and constantly kept me informed, listened to my feedback about each viewing, and used that feedback to take me to places that met my criteria. More than that, he was incredibly prompt and professional and earned my trust as a client.
I would highly recommend using him as your agent!
WOW!!!! Sean was so amazing!! Can't say enough amazing things about him. Did an amazing job at finding my New York dream apartment with my three best friends. The my Sex in the City dream which we are so thankful for!!! Highly recommend him!!!
Sean and his colleague Desmond were incredibly helpful and considerate throughout the entire process of finding an apartment. My roommate and I mapped out our requirements and budget and Sean and Desmond followed them to a T, asking us what we liked and didn’t like about each apartment we viewed in order to narrow our search to a place we would absolutely love. When we finally found a place, they made the application process simple and headache free! Can’t say enough good things about my experience working with him and we love our new apartment!
Sean was excellent. I had seen multiple other apartments/brokers before I spoke with him and he was the first person that seemed to really listen. The first apartment he showed me was perfect (great space, fit all my criteria, good location, within my budget) and he helped me secure it quickly and painlessly.
It was a pleasure to work with Sean. As we were a group of 4 looking for an apartment for a specific budget and for a very busy time, Sean was knowledgeable, honest and proactive with his approach. I found Sean to be well - organized and clear when we were sorting out our paperwork - really the crucial time for prospective applicants. I also felt like he was always readily available to answer any questions and he always replied to emails promptly. The 4 of us got a great deal for a great apartment and we couldn't have done it without Sean's help. I would recommend him to anyone instantly and whole-heartedly.
Sean was a joy to work with. I would Highly recommend him to anyone looking for a NYC apartment. It was mine and my 3 roommates first time looking for apartments, and he made the process extremely easy. In the end we could not have found a better apartment for the 4 of us without his help. He is very professional and listened to all of our needs. I felt he had our best interest in mind, and was able to show us the best options available.
From the first phone call to introduce himself and explain how a tenant agent works, to the signing of the lease, I couldn't be more impressed with Sean McKenzie and Oxford Property Group. Sean was always professional, accessible, and he listened well to what four college roommates were looking for in an apartment. He was able to decipher the needs and wants and delivered. I feel it would have been much more stressful without a tenant agent and without Sean. I highly recommend using his services and am very grateful that he helped find the perfect apartment for our daughter and her roommates.
I would definitely recommend Sean to anyone needing assistance in renting an apartment in NYC! He was a pleasure to work with and he really had my best interest in mind. I thought finding my first NYC apartment was going to be really stressful but it went so much smoother than expected with Sean's help. He was really familiar with the area I ended up moving to and really wanted to help my roommates and I out. So thankful for him helping us out!
I am writing this from my couch in the living room of my new apartment Sean found for my boyfriend and me. When looking for a new place, we were hesitant to use a broker, but after working with Sean, we knew we made the right choice. From the beginning, Sean was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. He wasn’t pushy, stuck with our budget (which rarely happens), and listened to our needs. Sean made our apartment search easier than we could have imagined. I can’t say enough good things about him. If you are looking for a new place, he’s your guy.
Finding the right apartment in NY is a tedious process and Sean was the right person to guide us through it. He always had words of encouragement when it seemed like we were never going to find one. He also backed his words with great units and always made himself available. He always treated us as real people and put our needs before his company´s. Not only in this platform but I will for sure recommend him to anybody who is looking for an apartment in NY.
Sean was great to work with - after the first couple of apartments he already had a good idea of what I wanted and knew right off the bat what I would like and didn't like in an apartment. I loved working with him!
Sean has a smart approach for helping apartment seekers in NYC -- he asks three questions during each showing: (1) what do you like about the unit, (2) what do you dislike about the unit, and (3) could you see yourself living there? The goal is pretty clear – he wants you look into a mirror and decide what’s important to you, personally, in the apartment search. Walking around NYC and visiting apartments is not particularly difficult – the hard part is making an informed decision and knowing that you spent your money well. Sean provides a structure to this process. He encourages you to verbalize your thoughts, intelligently rank the units you’ve seen, and make a decision based on the factors that are actually meaningful to you. As a result, as you’re walking around the city and seeing units, you never get the sense that your time is being wasted. Sean is always active during the search –discussing the options, talking about the market, and making notes and relaying your preferences back to Oxford HQ for better listings. Sean also has a professional demeanor. He is well composed and respectful of your opinion. My apartment search was quick and pleasant, and Sean was able to find a terrific undervalued apartment for me in just a couple days. I would certainly get in touch with him again when searching for my next place.
Sean was extremely helpful and accommodating during our search for a rental apartment. We were able to see and select a great apartment within a few hours of meeting him. It was truly a pleasure working with him!
Sean was very professional and efficient during a chaotic process. He helped keep the search organized and manageable. Thanks for your help Sean, wish you all the best and would definitely recommend you to anyone.
It was a pleasure working with Sean, and his partner Desmond in my apartment hunt. In one day they were able to show me 12-14 apartments back to back. In that search I saw 3 apartments that had strong potential. Sean took the time to listen to my feedback after each apartment to better understand what I liked and didn't like to better address my needs. I was about to give up on hiring a broker as many of the ones I meet prior were pushy, dishonest, or knew nothing about the apartments. As someone who has high expectations and is often difficult to please, Sean did a great job in finding me the perfect apartment within my price range. Legitimately, the perfect apartment for me. I highly recommend Sean on your next apartment hunt. I will surely be using his services again when it is time for my next move.
Sean was super helpful, quickly got what our priorities were and helped us find our dream apartment in the east village. We were lucky to have him. He was very patient and understanding and I definitely recommend his services!
Him and Desmond have a great system. No wasted time. Found a great apartment at the right price!
Mac the Engineer,
It was great to work with Sean! Easy going and smilling all the time!
He knows what is he doing! =)
Sean was super responsive and helpful in my apartment search!
It was a pleasure to work with Sean.
After one meeting we found an apartment, and after a week week we signed On it.
I have a perfect apartment!!
Sean is very organized, series and positive,
Pleasure to work with!
Working with Sean was so much fun. Keyword: fun. Much of apartment hunting is having to deal with brokers who are undereducated, selfish and just plain rude. Sean made looking for a place like looking with a friend. He managed to keep a light energy, while managing my expectation in a respectful, calm manner Plus he's just s damn cool with a wealth of knowledge and a charmer's wit.
I'm a student who is new to this country. And I came across certain problems with apartments-renting. One of my friends recommended Desmond Eaddy to me so I turned to him for help.
He fully understood my situation and my demands. In addition, he provided efficient help and much help. Although in the end I decided to stay at my current apartment, I do appreciate his excellent work. If I want to change apartment in the future, he will definitely be the guy I'm turning to for help.
I recommend Desmond Eaddy without any reservation.
