Finding Your Manhattan Rental

Searching for an apartment to rent in New York City is exciting but can also be challenging without the right guidance. Having a team working for you during this exciting time will make the process fast and rewarding. The sky is the limit as far as apartment style and amenities go in choice locations like the Upper West Side. William Bolls from the Compass Group, is a local New Yorker and a highly regarded real estate broker, that will make the search for renting an apartment in Manhattan his priority.


New York City has an incredible variety of apartments available for rent. Choosing the property type that works best for you and your family takes some careful consideration. Most residential rentals will be in the form of a privately owned condo or an apartment in a rental building. When renting a condo, you will have a lease with the person that owns that specific apartment, the other building occupants could be individual owners or also renters. A rental building will have a landlord that owns the entire building and rents out each apartment to different tenants. You may also come across co-ops for rent. Although condo and rental building tenants must undergo a range of financial scrutiny and possibly board reviews, co-ops notoriously have stricter criteria and may present longer lease terms.   


Renting an apartment in Manhattan is a great option for many people. It gives you the chance to explore and get the feel for a neighborhood without the stress of putting down permanent roots. Financially and legally, renting is a less expensive and simpler process. Not having your assets tied to a property as a long-term investment is a major advantage. Renters often enjoy the same luxury amenities that owners do without having the responsibility of the apartment’s upkeep on their shoulders. While condo and co-op homeowners in NYC will have to worry about additional monthly charges such as property taxes and maintenance or common fees, tenants are generally only responsible for their own utilities. There are a lot of perks to renting an apartment in New York City and by getting in touch with us at (646) 285-8197 or [email protected] we will help you find and move into your new address as quickly as possible.

"“I can't imagine purchasing a property in New York City without William"

“I can't imagine purchasing a property in New York City without William. As an out-of-town buyer, we faced additional challenges when we decided to buy an apartment in the city. As cliched as it sounds, William truly made us feel like his only clients. It's not a simple process and we required a decent amount of hand-holding. He was there for us every step of the way, even anticipating a lot of our concerns. One of the most valuable characteristics of a good agent is responsiveness. Any time we contacted William--and it was often--he responded quickly and completely. William will definitely be our agent on future transactions.”

"The market was tough, but William stuck with it and brought it home"

“I worked with William over a lengthy period, trying to sell a lobby level doctor's office in a residential co-op building on the upper west side. The market was tough, but William stuck with it and brought it home. He showed patience and was always straightforward, honest and friendly throughout the process. Definitely 5 star.”
