Client Testimonials for Ken Shvetz

Lara E., East Village
I engaged Ken to sublet my co-op apartment in the East Village. I really
wanted to sublet it furnished to save me the hassle of having to store things,
and while Ken advised that it would probably rent more quickly if it were
empty, he was willing to try and accommodate my request. He was right, of
course, it wasn't a quick process, but he persevered, holding an Open House
every weekend and also doing individual showings in between. After a couple
of weeks I had to leave the country, so he was pretty much on his own, but he
kept in regular contact with me and the management company. And when a likely
candidate was found, he helped him get all the paperwork in order for the
co-op board and pushed things along when they needed to be. I would
have no hesitation in using Ken again or in recommending him!
Tom E., Lower East Side
Ken was very helpful and efficient in finding me an apartment and guiding me through the entire renting process when I moved from out of state to New York. He was timely in communication, patient with my questions, and worked hard to help me get a place that was suitable for my budget and preferences. He did his research and made me feel like I was in good hands. I'd recommend him to anyone.
Peter S., Upper East Side
Great job!! Would definitely use you guys again.
Brandon C., Midtown West
This is a great firm! I would highly recommend them. They were honest and didn't bait and switch me at all.
MaryAnn & Guy S., Midtown West
This was our first experience buying a home and we began our search with a different real estate firm. In a few days, we were disappointed to the point of quitting our search altogether. Then we met Ken, and he made the entire process so seamless and straight-forward. He was extremely patient with us throughout our home search, working around our chaotic work schedules as best he could--even showing us apts at late hours when he could! Honestly, we couldn't have found a home without him. His knowledge of Manhattan neighborhoods and buildings is impressive. He was always responsive, answering our questions or researching them and getting back to us, if he didn't know something right away. Ken is clearly committed to building relationships and not just "closing the deal". We would highly recommend him to anyone we know. We really can't say enough good things about him!
Steve C., East Village
After going out with 7 other brokers, this place was a breath of fresh air!

Call them... You won't be sorry!
Angela R., Chelsea
I would highly recommend Listings New York to help you find an apartment!

After speaking with numerous brokers over the phone, they were the first ones who actually listened to what I wanted. Everyone else just wanted to run me around and show me apartments! Ken took the time to ask me detailed questions such as why I was moving, so he could really understand my motivations and what was important to me, rather than just trying to pigeon-hole me into an apartment he wanted me to so many others do!

It was overall an excellent experience... He even helped me get the apartment ahead of someone else (from a different brokerage) by educating me in advance to have all my paperwork ready before I even started looking. That was a life-saver!! A++ and would definitely use again
David A., Upper East Side
I definitely recommend calling Ken Shvetz whenever you are looking for an honest, ethical broker who will give you the "straight facts" and not try to push or squeeze you into anything you're not comfortable with. He took his time, was very thorough, and never pressured me once to do anything I didn't want to do... I wished every broker in New York were this honest!
