BrickUnderground's Renter Referral Program Update: "Find me a place a broker would live in"
BrickUnderground's Renter Referral Program is one week old today, and so far dozens of renters from in and outside NYC have requested a match with a good Manhattan rental agent in what the Wall Street Journal reported last week is the tightest rental market in 5 years.
Some renters have been quite descriptive about their apartment requirements. Our favorite: "Looking for a place a broker would be happy living in."
Others have some questions, ranging from how to find an apartment to accommodate a piano (answer: quietly, as landlords take a dim view of pianos and the noise complaints they typically produce) to finding a "no-fee" rental agent, to whether BrickUnderground is paying the broker's fee (no--we just make the match and stand by to offer further help if need be).
The more referrals we make, the more leverage we have to improve the renter-broker relationship, so please help us spread the word about the renter referral program by telling your friends and by clicking the Facebook Like button at the top of this page.
