"Jimmi Circosta and Darrel Stephen were a pleasure to work with when I was looking to rent out the garden apartment in my building. They had an intimate understanding of the current market, did a great job of keeping me updated on their progress, and offered useful insights and advice on the applications we received. I would be delighted to work with them again, and would not hesitate to recommend them to others looking to find tenants." - Neal
"I worked with Darrel Stephen out of the Citi Habitats office at 387 Park Avenue South. Darrel helped me find the perfect one bedroom apartment in West Harlem. He was helpful, honest, punctual, and was available any time I had a question or concern, no matter what time of day. It was a total pleasure working with him, and once I settled on an apartment he got the entire application process completed in 2 days. I recommend him to anyone looking for a place in NYC." - Joseph
