He is extremely personable and easy to work with. He really cares about each and every one of his clients. Unlike some of the other brokers I worked with, I never felt pressured or smothered working with him.

    I’d never gotten my own place before so I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into. Tim took the time to explain all the fees, procedures, and options. He also took the time to listen to what I wanted in an apartment. I started my apartment search a little too early, but Tim still took me out viewing apartments just to get a better feel for what I liked and didn’t like, so when apartments that fit me became available, for my move-in date, he would pull the listings aside and arrange a time for us to go see several of them in one day. My work schedule was absolutely terrible, but Tim went above and beyond just to make sure we could plan showings that worked for me.

    I just signed a lease for a beautiful apartment which meets ALL of the criteria I was looking for. I seriously could not be happier with the service I received from Tim. I absolutely will use him again in the future and recommend him to anyone looking for a place to live.

    Thanks Tim!

    We were immediately contacted with a response when inquiring about a listing through Trulia. Instead of providing his listings to us, he asked us what kind of apt we were looking for. After giving him our response (bedroom size, sq footage, price range), he came back with options and was ready to show us the listings that very evening. We were very happy with all the listings and ended up choosing the first showing. This is quite the opposite of what we experience with another broker earlier that day/evening which scared us and made us cautious about brokers. Turns out, Lovell impressed us.

    In regards to the paperwork/lease signing, that also went very smoothly. All communication/documents were done electronically. The exception is the actual hard copy lease and payments. This too was also smooth. The plus side was that Lovell’s office was across the street from my job and made it easier to coordinate.

    Overall, my husband and I were pleased with the service. We would highly recommend his services.

    Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable and well connected in the area — he’s also a deeply caring and friendly person. He was especially accommodating considering my particular situation, I was unfamiliar with the New York area and was looking to move to a 1BR apartment in a very quick time frame. Initially, I was daunted by the all of the options. As soon as I reached out to Zuriel, he immediately replied back and was eager to help me find the perfect apartment.

    After setting up a weekend to come view apartments, Zuriel was incredibly attentive and organized a detailed schedule of showings. There were tons of great options and, more importantly, Zuriel had the right connections and depth of knowledge to inform us of the particulars of each unit. He was by our side during every step of the process.

    You should also know this about Zuriel – he goes the extra mile. Whether it’s helping with finding movers or bringing a tape measure or an umbrella for a showing on a rainy day, he’s got you covered. Those quiet little details speak loudly to his character.

    In the end, we ended up finding a gorgeous unit that perfectly suited our needs. And, better still, we ended up finding a wonderful agent and all around stand-up guy in the process.
