When you are dealing with dozens of agents, you really can compare. All information about the apartment was detailed and correct.

I worked with Taylor a couple of weeks to find a studio in New York. Taylor has been really helpful to me and always thoughtful about the places I might like. He does not research on the apartments themselves but also on the surrounding area based on my preferences to make sure I can find the best place within my range. I'd love to work with Taylor again my next apartment search.- Tung N.
