I'm pleased to tell you that we received several applicants at the open house last weekend and signed a lease last night with a very lovely couple. She is a doctor and he is in the media industry.

The fact that the tenants pay no broker's fee is a big plus. It is a huge savings for them and they have more money to put into their new apartment. RDNY.com has helped me rent many of my apartments.
Nick Kalas, 4 Bldgs Midtown East
I list my apartments exclusively with RDNY.com. By listing with RDNY.com the tenant does not have to pay a broker's fee. RDNY.com clients are just as qualified as a broker's.
Gladys McDonnell, 4 Brownstones, Upper West Side
The things I like about RDNY.com are: the service is very efficient, someone always calls to update my listings and the owner site is a wonderful feature of the service. I can go online at my leisure to view my ad information.

It took alot of my own work, but this website led me to a great NYC apt in a great location without a broker fee (other than the $139 I paid to rent-direct for the service). The only negative is that brokers have the ability to find condos, while rent-direct points you in the direction of mainly leasing apartments
My recommendation is to have 3 days, and get an unlimited train pass. Then use rent-direct and be your own broker. It really was amazing to find a great apartment basically on my own!
Usually I have searched my residential place through craigslist to move, but locally in state of VA. Last month I interviewed and got job in NYC, I needed someone to find me an apartment. I was referred to these guys through the receptionist at my new joining, Having not lived in NY before, I had lots of questions about the city, areas, crime rates etc... RDNY thankfully spent good half hour with me on phone. I did some research through their site and got interested in few rentals. Next day when I spoke to them they insisted on paying fee, I paid under $200 for their full access service. I must say at first I was hesitated, but once I got access to the vital information, I think it was money well spent! I started calling people for their rentals and have jot down to two properties which I looked today and decided on one. What seemed impossible just couple weeks back, thanks to these guys I have my new place to land in NYC. I must say I am very happy with these guys for helping out a newbie....
