Finally home sweet home and settled in NYC! My roommate and I had a remarkable time working with Matt Bauman and Next Step. Matt made our apartment search quick and easy, and especially working with us as international clients and with a fairly unique situation. Conference calls and emails to cover our necessities and wants made the ‘day-of’ apartment search a smooth process – FaceTime, text messages, and extra guests in tow. The locations Matt selected were exactly what we were looking for and within our desired budget and location. On site, he was great and patient to recap apartment details and remained very unbiased but helpful and professional. Once finding our new place, having Matt facilitate applications, paperwork, and agent communication really made the house hunting process as low stress as possible and enjoyable. Follow-up paperwork and welcome notes have been a nice touch and we’d love to do work with Next Step, but specifically Matt again! Love our new apartment – even as a 5th floor walk-up!
