The process of renting an apartment in New York City is overwhelming even for seasoned renters. “After spending numerous weeks wasting my time with bait and switch broker tactics, no show meetings and discovering that certain landlords have notoriously bad reputations it became obvious that I needed help. I reached out to Kirby Sommers’ AptStar service and am so grateful that I did,” states financial services specialist Chris Lautenslager who has been renting in Manhattan for over 8 years.
Kirby Sommers has been revolutionizing the way renters find apartments with her eGuides called Landlord Links since 2005. The best selling guides are similar to Zagat books with the added bonus of having hyperlinks which renters click on to see apartment listings offered directly by landlords and management companies.
Mr. Lautenslager adds: ”AptStar identified an apt for me that was literally perfect! This took only 1 day to view listings as opposed to a constant scramble of phone calls, texts, e-mails and meetings. The time I saved was in itself worth the modest one time cost. But the fact that I now have a beautiful no-fee apartment from a solid landlord confirmed that it was one of the best investments I could make.”
Kirby Sommers has recently upgraded a personal service she offers via her LandlordLinks.Net website called AptStar by adding more specialists to handle the overwhelming amount of requests from apartment seekers for help.
While most listings provide only the minimal information on apartments, the unique AptStar service allows apartment hunters to use terms like “eclectic, really sunny, kid-friendly, and every imaginable description along with the most desirable tag words any New York City bound renter can mutter: “no broker’s fee.”
In addition to saving renters on broker fees AptStar also ensures clients shine like superstars on paper and ace their interview with the landlord thus eliminating stiff competition and also helps them from making costly rental mistakes.
No other rental service offers honest service to renters in the city. Craigslist is full of bait and switch broker posing as owner listings. And, Streeteasy, which was supposed to make renting an apartment easier, is full of random brokers with no guarantee of honest service or the no fee promise.
Ms. Sommers believes AptStar is the only way to solve the dysfunctional nature of the apartment rental market in New York City. “When someone uses AptStar, they’re getting a great rental experience, along with the right apartment, which means we’ve made a customer for life or for as long as they continue to rent in the city.”
