Because of Justin and Phil''s professionalism, the entire experience of apartment hunting is going very smoothly! Now I am living in a great apartment, everything about the place is working so well together that I''m actually able to be 100% focused on grad school and other non-apartment-related aspects of life.

Justin Duffy is beyond amazing!! I cannot say enough good things or thank him enough for everything he did for my son. After making three trips to NYC from Boston trying to secure an apartment in Manhattan for my son, and having no success with another realtor; on our fourth trip my son reached out to Justin Duffy and Linaris Rivera. From the moment he made contact and we visited them at their office, we knew we were in great hands. Justin listened intently to my son''s needs and scoured his listings for apartments that would fit his budget and geographic requirements. Justin had several listings and Linaris took us all over the East and West Villages showing us apartments. Linaris was so much fun to work with, she knows the city and its neighborhoods inside and out, and was able to answer all our questions. For the first time, we actually had a great time looking at apartments! Linaris stayed late into the evening to show the apartment my son is now renting, and Justin stayed extra late to help us through the application process. Justin was so attentive to our needs, our time constraints, and the fact that we were having to do this from Boston. Justin was in touch with us every day, keeping us informed of the status of our application and getting the lease overnighted to us for signatures. But it doesn''t end there! Justin was in touch with the management company for us to clear up a couple of questions we had, and he even arranged to pick up the keys for us and delivered them to us at the apartment on SUNDAY of Labor Day weekend! Unfortunately for Justin we were a couple of hours late getting into the city that day and it held him up from enjoying his long weekend - for which I apologize profusely. Justin has continued to follow up with me and my son to make sure that everything has been going as planned. I truly believe that if it had not been for Justin Duffy, my son would still be living in Boston! Thank you so much Justin!

Justin and Phil are amazing to work with! I had a hard-pressed schedule with moving out-of-state and starting my new job in a few weeks in NYC. I was only in town for a few days in hopes to find, sign, and be approved when I left town, which is a challenge in this market. I had strict parameters that we had to work with and they were always mindful when they were searching for properties. Their professionalism, honesty, listening-skills, and communication made this stressful situation so pleasant. Phil was always engaging in conversation and by the 2nd / 3rd viewing he already had a sense of what I liked and didn’t like which helped to cut out places and open others (didn’t waste my time). By the end of a FULL day of scouting, I had 3 great options! The next morning we filled out the paperwork and Phil walked me over to the management company to make sure it was a smooth transaction during my lease signing. I am so grateful for their time, patience, and knowledge!! Their communication and services didn’t stop when I signed the dotted line. They continued to follow up with me after I moved in and check to see how I am doing as a new “New Yorker”. That’s beyond customer service… I didn’t feel like they were my brokers, but more like helpful friends throughout this full cycle process. I will always use them in the future and will always recommend this awesome duo to friends & family. I love my new place I call home!

Justin and Aubree are absolutely incredible. Our hunt for an apartment in NYC was crazy. My boyfriend and I had met with previous agents who simply were not showing the space we wanted within our price range. After hours of frustration, we finally met with Justin and Aubree and wow, what a difference experience off the bat. Justin handled all of the business side. Helped narrowed down the right spaces and gave us a few to look at. He was very professional and extremely helpful. Aubree then showed us around the city and each individual apartment. They all were what we were looking for! She was so sweet and easy to talk to. She shared some of her favorite places to eat in the neighborhoods we were in and made the whole experience great. Once back, we started the paper work process for the apartment we wanted and within a week we got our place! My boyfriend and I have nothing but great things to say about Bond New York as well as Justin and Aubree. Thank you so much! We love our new apartment in the Upper East Side!
Justin is an absolute professional and highly skilled. He was able to quickly identify my needs and swiftly locate the perfect apartment for me. My apartment search started and ended the same day. I'd highly recommend working with Justin.
Justin and Aubree went above and beyond in helping me to find the perfect apartment in the city! They were very thorough, professional and supportive throughout the process. They prioritized my needs and desires and made sure to fulfill them to the best of their ability. They were also very quick to respond to emails which I found to be rare when working with other realtors. Justin and Aubree played a significant role in making a dream of moving to the city a reality without having to settle for an unfavorable living environment. They have my highest recommendation and I could not thank them enough for their dedication to my satisfaction. You will not be disappointed.
Justin and Phillip helped me to find an apartment in the summer of 2017. I had previously reached out to Phillip quite early for my lease start date, but once the timing was better, he reached out to me pro-actively to begin my hunt for a new place. I had previously met with other Realtors that I felt were trying to push me into signing apartments I visited, but Phillip and Justin weren''t like this. They were thoughtful in considering what I wanted, and presented me with a number of options when I met with them in-person. Then, we went to see a bunch of apartments, and I had luck by the 3rd option! Once I found somewhere I loved, they reviewed all my paperwork with me, went to the building management office with me to submit my application, and even sat with me through my lease signing. They were really helpful in answering all my questions and making sure everything went smoothly. Phillip even delivered my deposit checks to the management company for me when I had a work event and couldn''t bring them myself. Overall, I had a great experience working with these two and love my new place. Worth the fee!
I came to NYC from Minneapolis - knowing little about the neighborhoods and process of getting an apartment. I contacted him, and he was gracious, fast and comprehensive in explaining the entire process to me. Breaking down fee/no-fee and what my money could buy in different neighborhoods. I was in a bit of an odd circumstance, and he worked with the management companies to come to a perfect resolution. I would trust him and refer him to any friend in a heartbeat. Justin was truly amazing.

Justin was professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. Even though I was working on a tight timeframe he and Aubree Brown worked hard to find a great place without making me feel rushed or pressured. I would absolutely recommend working with them again.

Justin was extremely knowledgeable about NYC and paid close attention to my needs. He really got to know what I was looking for and provided excellent options. I now live in an apartment that I absolutely love and could not have found it without him and his colleague, Chiara.

Justin was very professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with during my apartment search. Thanks to him and Phillip, I was able to view multiple apartments and had a lease signed for one that afternoon (fast even by New York standards!). For someone unfamiliar with renting in New York, I highly recommend giving Justin a call.

Justin and Phillip adopted a systematic and informative approach when helping me with the apartment search. They were mindful of my criteria at all times, knowledgeable about the apartment listings, and quickly incorporated feedback from the first day into the second day of viewing. They also kept clear and prompt communications regarding document preparation, action items, as well as any potential issues. Both my mom and I found the interactions with them a pleasant experience. I am glad to be able to find a place within such a short time frame, and would like to recommend Justin and Phillip for being professional, efficient, and friendly throughout the process.
