Grant is an absolute gem, and you would be lucky to have him as your realtor. He is very approachable, responsive, personable, and really wants to help find you a home. My husband and I recently relocated from Los Angeles to Manhattan. Neither one of us had lived in New York City before, but we had heard it is extremely difficult to find a good apartment, and even tougher to find a good broker. We hired Grant based on his positive Yelp reviews.
We had only one weekend to find an apartment in Manhattan, as we were both still working in LA at the time and could only afford to fly to NYC one time. In preparation for this, we emailed Grant a list of "must-haves" and "would like to haves." He sent us an extensive email of listings, including floor plans, photos, and detailed descriptions. When we got to Manhattan, in a single day, Grant showed us at least 7-8 apartments, all of which fit our "criteria." It was very easy to select "our favorite," and Grant quickly put in our application, and even talked the rent down by $100/month! We had a very extensive application process as our unit is in a condominium building which requires a lot of scrutiny. Grant assisted us the entire way, even making arrangements for us to move in a couple of days early.
Grant is prompt, professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend him. We would definitely use him again in the future, although he found us such a great home, I don't think we'll be moving anytime soon!
