Despite the mayoral call to “make NYC your gym,” finding a workable workout routine in this city can be an uphill battle. After a day of work, hustling to your fitness facility of choice is exhausting in and of itself, to say nothing of jockeying with other gym members for the prime equipment. Fortunately, more and more of New York’s new luxury rental buildings are being built with in-house gyms, saunas, yoga classes, bike storage, and more fitness-friendly features to match even the most top of the line athletic clubs around the city.

And the folks at TripleMint have made it easier than even to land your dream apartment—and dream amenities.

A tech-savvy brokerage with a user friendly site, TripleMint eschews many of the usual inconveniences associated with the typical brokerage, paying brokers based on client satisfaction, and streamlining the search to give you access to the same listings the pros are searching. Why email dozens of different brokers when you can schedule appointments on the TripleMint website and visit all of your favorite apartments through a single agent that you’ll meet face to face?

Once you’ve set your sites, TripleMint keeps the perks coming, with exclusive deals on moving companies, cleaners, delivery services and more. In keeping with the firm's ethical ethos, TripleMint donates a portion of every brokerage fee to the housing charity Rebuilding Together NYC, so for each person they help find a home, a family in need can stay in theirs.
