"Paul is a great leasing agent. He spends the time to know his clients and understand their needs. He represents the interests of both the owners and the tenants in every transaction. I am impressed by his energy level, creativity, and work ethic. Paul has proven his abilities with real results. Having only been on site for 2 months, he has signed more leases than other agents had in 6 months. We will be working with Paul on many more transactions to come." - Genghis

"As a NYC Property Manager I’ve worked with several brokerages and agents. In my experience, I am yet to come across an agent who’s as honest, educated, and diligent as Paul Sweet. What makes Paul unique is his unparalleled ability to get the best deal for both the landlord and client. He truly has everyone’s best interest at heart, which translates into successful deals. He knows how to set expectations, and doesn’t overextend or over promise. In addition, Paul is always accessible. Phone calls, emails, and texts are always returned within 24 hours (if not immediately after they’re sent). In short, if you’re looking for a reliable agent, look no further than Paul Sweet.

"This the second time I have been blessed with the services of Mr. Sweet as my Broker. I appreciate receiving prompt return of emails which kept me organized & well informed. Thank you for your kindness and professionalism. " - Joy, Hudson Heights

"Paul to the rescue! We had the pleasure of meeting Paul Mid December 2017. At the time, we were looking for an apartment with move in date for Feb 2018. Out of the many, -and we mean MANY!- brokers that we reached out to, he was the only one who took his time to find us the perfect apartment. Most brokers out there gave us the impression that they wanted to move us into an apartment YESTERDAY to get their cut. Do the words “Too soon to start looking” sound familiar to you? This was not the case with Paul. He really took his time to find exactly what we wanted as our first home. His friendliness, patience and professionalism far exceeded our expectations and for that, we are beyond grateful to him. We highly recommend anyone to work with Paul to whom we wish all the success and praise that he deserves in real estate. " - Raf & Bo, Washington Heights

"Paul helped my daughter find an apartment on the Westside of NYC. As Megan was a first time buyer, she had dozens of questions as did her Dad, who lives in Northern Vermont. Paul was always patient, kind, and informative. I remember asking him:" Would you buy this apartment for your daughter?" Paul's answers were direct and deliberative. In sum, he became our friend, advisor, and more.... When buying in NYC, the process can be painstakingly long, especially when dealing with a coop board. Paul never wavered in his commitment. Thus, I am thrilled to say that my daughter recently closed on her first NYC apartment. Quite simply, this never could have taken place without the remarkable skill set that Paul Sweet brought to the table.... " - John, Vermont

"I could not have asked for a more supportive, helpful, considerate, or compassionate broker than Paul Sweet. From start to finish, Paul went out of his way to make sure I was getting the very best, and was always available to work with me to make sure the purchasing process was as painless as possible. As a first time buyer, Paul went above and beyond to make sure I felt confident and comfortable, and I know he always put my best interest at the forefront of any transaction. I cannot thank him enough! " - Megan, Upper West Side

"Paul Sweet is a fantastic developer’s agent. He is consistent, responsive, dedicated and enthusiastic day in and day out. Paul took over one of our projects from another marketing agent and in his first month was able to deliver an enormous amount of deal flow. The actual “deal” process is the best part with Paul. Paul is all over every single deal. " - Jay, Madison Realty Capital
