It’s no secret that the demand for New York real estate is high and space is limited in the Big Apple. Moving to NYC (or even moving within it) is a daunting task to say the least. I know when I first moved here over 12 years ago, I had no idea where to begin or how to do it. Fast forward many years (and many apartments) later, I’ve learned that getting a smart real estate broker is the way to go. Jayne Firtell, who works for Prudential Douglas Elliman, has helped my husband and me through the years find our homes. So I asked her to share with us her top tips to buying real estate in Manhattan in hopes that it will give you a better idea. Please contact Jayne for a personalized consultation to assist you with all your apartment finding needs. Whether you’re looking to buy or rent, Jayne will help you every step of the way.
