Billy Degand

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Billy Degand has greater than eight years experience renting residential units focusing on high-end renovated properties in downtown Manhattan. He has developed a fine eye for the quality, value and details that his clients seek, and deserve.

Billy's work ethic is second to none. He frequently works seven days a week, searching for the exact apartment that will excite his clients and fit their needs. His dedication and enthusiasm have brought him a great amount of repeat business and referrals, which are the badges of honor and trust for a top-notch agent.
Mr Degand's education includes a Certificate in Business from the Lycee de Bordeaux France and a BA in Business from CCNY.

Prior to coming to America, Mr Degand was a professional musician in his native Haiti. He is fluent in English, French, and Spanish. Billy has spent most of his career working for an entity that was both a brokerage and property management company. This has afforded him a unique understanding of how to best approach owners, and how to negotiate skillfully to close a deal that's fair to both the client and the owner. This perspective, coupled with Billy’s patience, tenacity and commitment to his clients, make him the perfect broker, one experienced in satisfying both parties.

Billy Degand and Janine Young have been very dynamic and efficient in finding
an apartment in New York for me, and so despite the my high expectations,
inexperience, absence of guarantees and my specific situation (no credit, no SSN,no guarantor, no funds in the US).

Billy Degand has been very effective at understanding my needs as I just arrived
from Paris. He has been very dynamic as well as patient in directing me towards
the most appropriate apartments. Billy found workarounds to address my lack of
paperwork, and he even negotiated a 4.2% discount on the rent for me.

Janine Youg has been very dynamic in guiding me through the steps of the
administrative process. She guided me and provided me with the documents
quickly despite my situation requiring countless changes in the process, and
thanks to her dynamism I was able to gather the relevant item fast.

Moreover, Billy and Janine have been very sympathetic and kind during this
process. Hence I strongly recommend the services of Billy Degand and Janine Young.
