Rick was great! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment in the city. Rick found us several apartments that matched our criteria and were within budget. We asked for a lot-- and he was honest about what was realistic for our budget limitations. In the end, Rick still found us an amazing apartment in a great area that checked off our list! We wouldn''t have been able to find this place without him.
I just wanted to write you to let you and others know how greatly I enjoyed working with you and how fabulous you are as a real estate salesperson! You helped make the ordeal of closing out a chapter of 20 years of my life at my 5th Avenue home bearable and pleasurable! Due to my 90 years on this earth, and at times impeded mobility, I often had to be present at the showings, which I know is not ideal from a broker’s perspective. But you always made accommodations and made me feel no stress. In addition, everything about you was stellar. Always prompt, always responsive, always helpful and always thorough. Not only are you personally impeccable in appearance, but in every aspect of the transaction your crisp approach stood out. I cannot thank you enough for the kindness and special care you showed me. You went way beyond the call in your always showing up with flowers, or chocolates, or picking up milk for me, etc. Your demeanor was always cheerful and attentive. The truth is I have grown to truly care about you and consider you a new friend. If anyone ever needs a reference for your skills I would gladly be available. Richard Hoyt, you are a special broker, but even more so, a special man!
This letter is to let you know how extraordinary Richard Hoyt is as a real estate sales agent. I myself, am a licensed real estate broker who worked for Douglas Elliman for 22 years. Currently, I am not working as such, and it was Mr. Hoyt I chose to represent my mother for the sale of her apartment at 1080 5th Avenue. That statement alone is a testimony to how impressive he is. From the get go, he excelled in every aspect. My mother is in the ninth decade of her life and was moving to Assisted Living; thus, this was a very tender and emotional move for her and the family. Rick handled every aspect and nuance with aplomb. He is extremely professional and cordial, and goes above and beyond what is expected of him. Remarkably thorough, always prompt, diligent, and creative in problem solving, he truly stepped up to the plate! In addition, on a personal level, he was extremely tender in handling my mother’s sensitivities and frankly, he was the perfect fit for her. I cannot even begin to list the multitudinous extra things he did for her that were completely not required, demanded, or requested of him. And of course, most importantly, he negotiated with great skill and got us a price that was a great reflection of the market. Truly, I cannot recommend Mr. Hoyt highly enough and could go on and on with the accolades I could bestow upon him. It was a true pleasure to have him as the exclusive broker. Whether he was bringing his own customer, or showing it to another broker and their customer, he consistently delivered and impressed with every visit. He is quite capable of handling both the buyer and the seller and was simply a gem to work with. He would represent either side of the sale with great success! I can honestly tell you that as a broker who sold hundreds of apartments, I cannot impress upon you enough how much he stands out in a field saturated with individual brokers. You would be doing yourself a great service, and favor, to choose Richard Hoyt! If you have any further specific inquiries, you may contact me through Rick.
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter recommending Rick Hoyt of Keller Williams, New York. I have known Rick for many years but recently had the pleasure of engaging Rick as my broker during my recent search for a new apartment in New York City.
As a result of Rick’s willingness to meet with me to discuss my requirements for the new apartment, he was able to quickly identify a number of choices that all filled my requirements. I was able to make a decision after only a few days of searching and am happily ensconced in my new residence.
Rick is professional, considerate and knowledgeable about the NY market. He listened and tailored my list of options. I highly recommend him to be the person to trust in the NY real estate market.
I want to thank your husband George for suggesting that Richard Hoyt, in your company, help me find an apartment. While I was originally reluctant to pay a broker’s fee, Richard deserves every penny and far more for the services he rendered. Not only was he professional by vetting properties ahead of time and acting as my advocate, he totally understood my needs, was very kind, and acted as an all-around cheerleader in what could have been a very stressful experience.
I love my new apartment and would happily recommend Richard Hoyt to friends or colleagues looking for an outstanding agent. He is a pleasure to work with. Bravo to you.
It is with great pleasure that I write to recommend Richard Hoyt, a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson at Keller Williams Realty, as a residential real estate agent. We have known Rick for many years and when my wife and I decided to move from the apartment in which we had lived for 16 years, we mentioned to Rick that we had not been able to find the perfect new home, despite looking for more than a year. Rick undertook a search that demonstrated that he really understood how we wanted to live our lives, and found the ideal home for us, one that we had not seen previously.
Despite a difficult seller, Rick never gave up on helping us make the purchase on terms that we reasonable, had frequent and productive interactions with the seller’s agent, and kept the negotiations alive and favorable to us at the points in the transaction when my wife and I believed that a transaction favorable to us was unlikely to occur.
Rick’s negotiating skills are matched by his integrity, and attentiveness. He listens to his clients’ thoughts and needs, while remaining grounded in the state of the market. My wife and I recommend him to you enthusiastically and without any reservations as a broker and would be happy to communicate with you further about our very positive experienced with him should you so desire.
I am writing this to recommend Richard Hoyt, my go-to real estate expert. I have worked with Richard on three homes and each time his service has been excellent and I have felt like I am his only client. He was always rich with information – about the buildings, the neighborhood and what my strategy should be relative to the price and every nuance of the negotiation. He has helped me find all my homes and forever patient with the multiply views, going back to see apartments again and again, and once I had decided, he was swift and fast acting which always made me feel like I was in capable hands and never concerned that the deal might fall apart. Richard always had my back, even when I didn’t know it, and almost looked out for me more than I was.
When I told you that I was seeking a new apartment in New York, I knew how difficult my search would be. I had geographic preferences, financial concerns and an extremely tight schedule. I also needed a space that would accommodate my furniture as well as a home office. How genuinely pleased-and relieved- I was with your prompt, thorough and most of all reassuring service. Apartment hunting under the best of circumstances can be nerve-wracking but your professional and cheerful approach made it a pleasure. Thank you for finding me an apartment that is exactly what I was looking for. In New York I think that is quite an achievement.
Richard Hoyt was a friendly and efficient broker to work with. My roommate and I started our search for an apartment online and had visited a few before we were connected with Richard. During our first meeting with him, we saw 3-4 apartments that were within our budget and near the trains we needed. After talking more in person about our criteria (laundry in building, near the 1, 2, & 3 trains), we set up another time to look at a few spots. Within the second week we had found the apartment we ultimately moved into. Everyone in the complex is very respectful, it feels safe, and the rent feels reasonable. Richard was helpful in calming the realtor who was in quite the rush to move things along over the weekend when we were all out of town anyway. He made sure our questions about the lease agreement were all answered before we signed anything. Overall, we had a very pleasant experience working with Richard and we would definitely work with him again.
