"William helped my daughter find a lovely apartment quickly and efficiently. He listens, prepares and knows the market. He showed her listings that were a precise fit so we didn't waste time. (This was especially important because we were looking during a crushing heat wave with afternoon temperatures reaching 99-degrees.) And he's an incredibly nice person to work with; even the other agents were relieved to see him because they know he's a pro and a nice guy. You won't find a smarter, more knowledgeable or professional agent. And you'll have fun in the process." - Allie

"I am in the process of moving to Manhattan from California and looked at virtually hundreds of apartments online. I was not inspired, so enlisted the aid of William Findlay. After describing what I was looking for, he nailed it in one shot! The first apartment he showed me I rented. William possesses an uncanny ability to know what a client is looking for. In addition, he possesses a well-developed and sophisticated aesthetic. He is extremely responsive, and was always good-natured when I continually contacted him with additional questions and issues related to a cross-country move. He helped me make my move as seamless as possible. William is professional, and most of all, honest. I recommend him without reservation." - Bridget McKenna

"“William did an outstanding job showing us the appropriate apartments based upon our needs and price point. He has high integrity and is very conscientious and tenacious, always keeping our best interests in mind. We found William to be a highly attentive agent – He constantly worked far beyond the 9-5 workday window to answer any questions we had via email, text or phone call. We would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy/rent a home. I would be happy to email or talk with prospective clients to provide feedback on our very positive experience.“ - Cathleen
