If it weren't for Yousaf We probably wouldn't be living in NY any more. He took what could have been an unbearable process and managed to guide us from start to finish: from finding listings to wading through all the mind-numbing bureaucratic nonsense. Our set of circumstances were quite particular - 2 ex pats recently moved to NY, both without US credits history; one of us (me) without a US-based employer. The list of properties he found were all well chosen from start to finish. There were no wild cards. Prior to Yousaf i had been shown some absolute shockers for the price range but every flat Yousaf showed us was high spec, with good amenities and at a reasonable price. Where he really stood apart was how patient, understanding and basically caring he was in helping us navigate the various checks and admin required once we chose a flat. We only had half (at best) of what was required of us and felt like the situation was hopeless. Yousaf's dogged determination helped us stay the course when at times i felt like taking a swan dive off the nearest tall building. Seriously i Cannot thank this guy enough and cannot recommend him more strongly. He went way above and beyond. If you're looking for new digs in New York.
