"Dealing with brokers or agents can be a nightmare...literally making you lose hope in humanity. I went through several bunches, who for some reason have a sense of entitlement and impatience surrounding them - seems to be common in this industry. However, I had the pleasure of working with Min Kim of Nest Seekers International to find my apartment and everything that goes along with that process. Once I found him, it was like I already won. From our first interaction, he was detailed, eloquent, and thorough. He is transparent and easy to get a hold of. He stayed on top of the rare listings that came up, meeting our strict criteria, and we ended up finding a great place after a couple months of looking. I just signed the lease a couple of days ago! Min was also punctual and sharply dressed. I felt like a boss each time we met up to see a new place. Never pressuring or making me feel uncomfortable in any way. It was more like he really did just want to help me find the right place and he put in the effort to do so. Mission accomplished. Thanks Min!" - Brian S -
"This review is for Min Kim. I typically do not write reviews, and had yet to have a positive experience with a broker till Min. He was professional, responsive, and extremely considerate of our stipulations and needs. He made the whole process so much easier than I expected. Negotiating with the buildings and quickly giving us updates as he heard more. He helped us land the perfect apartment and I will 100% be recommending him to anyone I know." - Robert M & Ariana C -
"I knew that finding an apartment in NYC would be a challenge, especially given my status as an international graduate student in need of a short-term, furnished rental. Initially I was hesitant to work with a broker; however, when I first contacted Min Kim through Nest Seekers International, he responded promptly and provided me with a detailed and comprehensive overview of the rental process in NYC. His transparency combined with the breadth of his knowledge made him easy to trust, and choosing to work with Min ended up being a great decision. He responded to all of my questions meticulously and efficiently, and he was kind and pleasant. Not being present in NYC at the time added a layer of complexity to my search, but Min was extremely helpful and accessible, and he really made the process so much easier for me. He understood and respected my needs, viewed apartments and shared photos with me, helped me prepare my application and ultimately found me a wonderful place to live. He was with me every step of the way, even driving me from the airport to my new apartment. I would definitely work with Min again and recommend him to anyone seeking a home in NYC!" - Katharine F -
