I was living upstate when I got an offer for a job that wanted me to start soon. I immediately started looking for studios and felt very overwhelmed. The best deal was for a room in Windsor Terrace advertised by Destination Real Estate. When I requested an appointment they were very responsive and organized. The real estate agent, Lawrence, was exceptional. He was very personable, trustworthy, and understanding of my situation. It was a real pleasure to be able to meet him. I'm genuinely glad he brokered my move in. I would recommend him and Destination Real Estate to anyone looking for a place to live.
My spouse and I had a wonderful experience with Destination Real Estate. Everyone in the office was quite helpful. We worked with the broker Lawrence. He was very responsive, thorough, and efficient. He even assisted us with purchasing a washer and dryer from the previous tenets. We would highly recommend this agency and Lawrence in particular to anyone who is looking for an apartment.
Lawrence was incredibly helpful and amazing with helping me get my first apartment! I found a listing StreetEasy.com and I met with Lawrence at the property (he was on time!). He got right to showing me the place. I didn't like that one, so he immediately showed me another place within my budget, bigger than I was expecting, and in my desired location! He introduced me to the landlord, had his office send me the application (which they did within 2 hours!) and I got a deposit down that day. The next day, I signed the lease and the apartment is mine! Everything happened so quickly, which I really needed, and I couldn't be happier. Lawrence is so helpful, quick, and friendly and I'm very pleased. By the way -- the DRE office staff is so fast and helpful!
Lawrence was fantastic. I told him what I was looking for, and he found me a great apartment. I didn't have the best credit, and he was on my side and really learned about why my credit wasn't the best and gave me the benefit of the doubt. I wouldn't have been able to get this apartment without Lawrence. Overall, Lawrence was invaluable and the process of reviewing and signing paperwork online was very easy and convenient. Highly recommend!
My info is a little outdated, but I feel compelled to share as I am in the process of moving again and can see that the google reviews for management companies are very helpful. I signed for a cute studio apartment thru DRE in South Slope in fall 2019. The building and unit were perfectly fine. Though the washer and dryer in the basement garage at the time were not working properly and it was difficult to communicate with the super. But the communication with the DRE team was pretty frustrating and sometimes not very professional. The broker fee at the time was 2mo rent, which they failed to mention earlier on. When I ended my lease a year later to live with family during the early months of Covid, it took me 2mo of constantly emailing them to ask for my security deposit back. Initially they told me to call a random number with a man’s name I had never heard and said I wouldn’t have direct contact so I should leave a message, which is very strange. Secondly the voicemail didn’t even work, it would shut off after like 10sec. So after 2mo of badgering them directly, they did send me back the security deposit in a very roundabout way. It’s possible their business has become more streamlined since 2019. But it was a very strange and frustrating experience. Again, the unit itself was perfectly fine.
