Any brokers / brokerages folks have worked with that charge only 1 months rent vs 2 months rent? Looking for an updated 1BR for $4000-$4500 in UES. The selection on StreetEasy isn’t that expansive, but I don’t really want to pay 2 months rent to find a place

Just look for no fee apartments


No fee updated apts on the UES are in your price range. I just signed for a 1BR on the UES - in my search I found most fee apartments were cheaper and after the 15% fee, broke even with the no-fee apts in the first year. If you stay longer than a year you come out ahead even after paying 15%

Yes some do. Negotiate down. I just got mine down to 11%. Still not great but might be able to get a decent chunk off. Broker fees in NYC is such a damn scam.

Loftey! $0 fee. I got my UES apartment through them.

Fishbowl family! I need your feedback! A new position has been created for me. Operations/ correctional officer manager? What a title, right?

@Mindshare: Completely jealous of your sneaker game. 🙌


HR vent of the day - New president of the company wrote a policy without my knowledge and released it to the employees. The policy basically says that they shall not park within a specific area due to construction but should park in 2 other lots (there a 4 lots total). I get a message this morning to write up DAs for people parked in the 4th lot that was not discussed in the policy. I refused because the policy was vague and really open ended. Apparently I’m playing word games and nit picky. 🤦‍♀️

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not selfish, and it cannot be made angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it.  Love is never happy when others do wrong, but it is always happy with the truth.  Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits. Love will never end.
