"I've had the most positive experience with my broker Luke Walsh during my apartment search in NYC. If anyone wants to know what the rental market is like in the city these days, it is brutal. Luke was able to help me navigate the search with diligence, competence, and thoughtfulness. His knowledge about the different neighborhoods and buildings is unsurpassed. He has great communication and negotiation skills and I find him to be completely trustworthy which helps provide a great sense of comfort. He makes the whole process seamless and follows up till it's done. He is an exemplary broker and I highly recommend him."

"Our experience with Next Step Realty was excellent from start to finish. We were relocating from London to New York so did not know much about the rental market in NYC. We had a call with Sophie where she talked us through the process and confirmed our preferences for apartments in detail. On the day of apartment hunting itself, she took us around many apartments, all fitting our criteria perfectly, and asked many questions of landlords / letting agents that we wouldn't have considered asking. We landed an apartment that same afternoon. All in all, she made what was a very daunting process into a breeze. Cannot recommend Next Step Realty enough."

"I had an amazing experience from start to finish. It was a very seamless process. I applied to get the process started online, was called within 24hrs to converse about what I was looking for. Within a few days I had an agent, Marilyn, who worked with my wants and needs. She did an amazing job in gathering apartments for my tour and after I chose one it was easy process to apply and get approved. She offered help during the lease signing process. I was very unknown to the NYC market and I did not know what to expect. However, Marilyn really helped ease those nerves and get me the apartment that I wanted. I would 10/10 recommend Next Step Realty."

"I had the best experience with Jake at One Step. He carefully listened to all the criteria that I was looking for in my new apartment and delivered on every factor. He understood and showed me multiple options that were exactly what I wanted — in addition to even more apartments that would have been satisfactory fits as well. What’s more, the Next Step team has excellent relationships with landlords and property managers around the city, which meant I got to see so many apartments before they were listed online to the public, as well as got offered special deals on rent. The whole process was fast, easy, and as painless as apartment-hunting in NYC can be. I was moved into my new apartment one week after our appointment date, and I have loved it. Highly recommend!"

"I had the pleasure of working with Marilyn at Next Step Realty in my search for my new NYC apartment. She transformed the daunting process of finding an apartment in NYC into a manageable and enjoyable experience. We began with a preliminary discussion to cover my preferences, including budget, apartment size, amenities, and location, which greatly streamlined the process. During my scheduled appointment, we visited 8-10 different apartments, and I had the opportunity to rank them based on preference. By the close of the business day, I selected an apartment that I really liked and submitted an application for it. Marilyn continued to assist me during the application process by ensuring that my paperwork was in order and liaising with the leasing agency on my behalf. Overall, I highly recommend Next Step Realty for anyone looking to make their apartment search easier in NYC, especially if they're new to the area!"

"The experience was seamless, and well-curated. Sophie was very helpful, especially in pointing out some things about apartments we saw that I would not have thought of. No notes."

"So so grateful to Next Step Reality and Marilyn for helping me find my first apartment in New York! As an NYC newbie the apartment hunt seemed completely overwhelming to do by myself. With Marilyn by my side I was able to tell her everything I was looking for and relax while she curated a list of apartments that fit my criteria. Marilyn was knowledgeable, supportive, and had great relationships with landlords such that we were able to see an apartment on the fly. My new apartment is perfect and everything I was looking for!"

"We had a great experience working with Meena. Our wish list was long and detailed, but Meena picked up on what really mattered and we ended up in a beautiful apartment in a neighborhood that wasn't on our radar. 10/10!"
