what our clients think

Etan was incredibly flexible, friendly, and easy to work with. He was so knowledgable about the space, and the legalities of being a broker. Even though the spaces he showed us were not the right fit for my boyfriend and I, we still loved working with him!

Highly recommend! Loved working with Etan, Thomas, and Charles during this process of finding our next apartment in the city. Etan helped us find our ideal apartment and was extremely responsive to our every question during the application. Best experience by far during my several years in the city and moving apartments!

Su Miao was instrumental in helping me quickly and painlessly navigate the NYC real estate market. She is incredibly diligent, organized, and client-centric; her stamina for being at listings, fielding questions, and following up with other brokers/realtors makes her a rare find. I could not recommend her or her company more.

I worked with Michelle B and she was FANTASTIC! she was quick and knew exactly what I was looking for on the first shot. I looked at Streeteasy at a specific neighborhood and she immediately referred me to a building that i overlooked and i LOVE my building now. She negotiated and took care of all back end stuff. As I''ve worked with hundreds of brokers before, I can confidently say she was the best I''ve ever worked with. Highly recommended for sure.

Working with Sam Trenk was incredibly easy. She was helpful and informative about the whole application, leasing, and move-in process. I''m obsessed with my new apartment, and I''d definitely recommend working with her and the REAL NY team again.

I worked with Jay from REAL NY in February to try to find a new apartment and he was very helpful and resourceful. He knew everything that needed to be done and was very honest in everything he tells me. Definitely recommend!

After looking all over Manhattan and Brooklyn for the perfect, in-budget apartment, my roommate and I were struggling with other brokers not understanding our personal and financial needs. That''s when Paul Morrissette reached out to us, and boy are we happy he did! He was able to find us the PERFECT, IN-BUDGET Brooklyn apartment the FIRST TRY. While many NYC brokers do not understand the Brooklyn market, Paul knew exactly where to look and what to find. We were blown away! He was friendly, professional and saved us a lot of time and money. I highly recommend him to friends, family and YOU!!

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!

Jonny Borochov was THE BEST I could have asked for! Being a new comer to NYC, Jonny put me at ease with his wealth of knowledge as well as his unstoppable dedication to finding me the perfect apartment! Not only was Jonny great at his job, he was also such a pleasure to spend countless hours apartment hunting with (you should hear my mom rave about him)! His commitment to finding the perfect apartment shined through when he helped me get in contact with other brokers that had access to apartments he thought I’d like—meaning that he would not get commission from my rental. I would 11/10 recommend Jonny to anyone and everyone for his honesty, commitment to my search and stellar personality!
