I was stressing about my move to my first apartment for MONTHS. I laid awake at night thinking about how stressful the house hunt would be, weeks and weeks before it even made sense to start looking. I was absolutely miserable thinking about it.
My roommate and I decided to give a broker a try, and we were matched with Sara Nardi at Next Step. She absolutely KILLED it! She was friendly, fun, and super helpful throughout the entire process, even after we signed our lease. The entire process was so much less stressful than finding a place on your own, especially because you get it all done in one day!
At the beginning of the process, Sara called my roommate and I, and took into account both of our needs and wants when it came to amenities, location, and price. In one afternoon, she took us to 7 properties, all of which I would’ve been happy living in. When we decided on the apartment we liked most, Sara was even able to negotiate a discount on the rent, and a move-in date that worked for us. She was absolutely worth every single penny.
I’ve heard many stories of people having negative experiences with apartment brokers, but I’m happy to say I will always (and already have) recommend her and Next Step to any friends and family looking to move. Thank you Sara, we can’t wait to get into our new apartment!
