My roommate and I came to New York on a quick, three day trip to find an apartment. Needless to say, we were stressed about finding the right place for the right value. We were very lucky to meet Edward Xu from REAL NY early on. Edward was incredibly personable, helpful, and non-pressuring. We were able to bounce ideas off him, and he worked with us as we figured out what we really wanted in an apartment. After we figured out which one we wanted to apply for, Edward was very responsive in getting us the details of the application. He went above and beyond and kept in constant communication with us just so we could be ready to submit our docs. The process from then on was very smooth, and Edward took very good care to make sure we knew what was going on. I wholeheartedly recommend Edward and the REAL NY team to anyone looking for an apartment. My roommate and I loved our experience with them!

Edward is an excellent communicator and wanted to make sure any concerns or questions we had were answered quickly.
He was polite and courteous during all our viewings and informative about the area (Long Island City). He was eager to help in any way and incredibly responsive. We had no concerns about getting timely responses back from Edward if we ever had questions.
We''d be happy to recommend Edward to anyone looking for a place in Queens.

My broker was Edward Xu and he helped me find my apartment. Showed me a few good options and got me a pretty good deal. He was really nice, very professional throughout. Didn''t push his opinion too hard like most brokers I met, which was refreshing. I was already looking at the Long Island City area and the place I got was ~200 less per month than most studios here. He answered my questions and concerns thoroughly whenever I asked and was willing to get on a phone call off hours too.

I worked with Edward Xu from REAL New York in March of 2018 from a referral from a friend. I didn''t know what to think about hearing mixed reviews about using a broker to find a place in NYC but decided to try things out with him. He didn''t disappoint, with only having a week in New York before having to fly back to start my move, he showed me a solid spectrum of different apartments to show me what I could pay and what I could get in New York. He took all that I wanted into consideration and was super flexible to help me lock down a place that I love. Would definitely work with Ed and Real again!

I worked with Edward Xu from REAL New York in February 2018. Brokers get a bad rep in NYC (and often for good reason) but Edward completely changed my opinions. He was so generous, going above and beyond to help me land my new place. He listened to and respected what I was after, had great communication and worked really hard when the final terms of my contract (I had some modifications done before moving in).
I couldn''t imagine a better experience. Thanks Ed!
Edward helped us found a great apt in LES. He is also very patient and helpful throughout the whole process.

Edward Xu is a top notch broker! He listened to what we wanted, he worked with landlords on our behalf, and he showed us some amazing places. He wasn''t pushy, he was very knowledgeable, and we could not have had a better experience!

Edward Xu made hunting for our Long Island City apartment fast, easy and painless. While we were nervous in the beginning, Edward''s knowledge about the neighborhood and his responsiveness to our needs made this an effortless process. He really stuck with us from looking at multiple places to locking one and signing our leases! We are so thankful for his services and I would absolutely recommend him to anybody!
