I’ve never paid it. Look for no fee buildings.

Yes, unless it’s a no fee apartment. If you do pay a fee, it’s generally either 15% annual rent or a months rent.

I find it absolutely insane that NYC people accept paying someone to open a door for them. Absurd.

No. There’s absolutely no need and it’s not worth it to pay a brokers fee, plenty of apartments that are no fee

On StreetEasy for the most part but you have to be super diligent as they get snatched up quickly

What would you do?
My company contracts a web developer, we have a set amount of hours for the quarter and pay over if more work is needed.
He never gets anything done. Doesn’t answer emails half the time. The one thing he’s done was take out a blurb that threatened our eligibility for patent renewal.
We have another company taking over in January, but I still have some pretty important dev needs until then and I can’t get him to do a thing. I truly try to give him all he needs.
