Mark Fruce is excellent! Mark is attentive, detail-oriented, compassionate, and listens well to the needs of his client. He arranged several appointments for me to view apartments to rent in New York City. As a first-time tenant in this city, I was very intimidated. Mark made me feel comfortable every step along the way. He was confident that I would find the right home -- and I did, with his help!! I highly recommend Mark Fruce, and I will be using him again in the future if I decide to buy! - Ashley R.

Mark Fruce was a pleasure to work with. After dealing with rude brokers in Manhattan, working with Mark was a relief. Mark knew his way around and he had full expertise on the process. He was extremely knowledgeable as well as responded quickly to us, he always made us feel like we were his first priority. Even though my roommates and I were traveling internationally, Mark helped us sign a beautiful apartment from overseas! Now that's something not a lot of brokers can do! - Tanushree G.

Mark Fruce was a true pleasure to work with. Having been in contact with several brokers, I really felt Mark was willing to take the extra effort and time to help us find what we wanted. We had some specific requirements that made our case difficult, but Mark did his research very well and found great options. The final apartment that we viewed, we ended up getting and it exceeded our expectations. We were so happy to be able to secure this apartment through Mark's effective negotiations along with his help and support. Thank you again.

Mark Fruce is professional, patient,and extremely helpful in my apartment hunting. He made sure that we secured a viewing promptly in the condominum that I was interested in and guided me through the paperwork involved in applying for the apartment. He was responsive to my questions and even talked me through the lease terms during after-office hours. He assisted me in reaching out and dealing with the condominum management team regarding my move-in process. Throughout this entire process, Mark showed himself to be dedicated to his clients, knowledgeable about the property market in NYC and is pleasant to deal with. I'm glad that he was on my side in my first rental experience in NYC! - Caleb C.

Mark Fruce was excellent at helping me find a rental to call home for my second move within Manhattan. He was professional and attentive to my preferences yet easygoing and enjoyable to talk to and work with throughout the apartment hunting, application, and moving process. I don't expect I'll be moving from the superb apartment that Mark helped me find in the near-future, but should I undertake another move farther down the road, Mark will be my go-to agent. If you're looking to move to New York from out of town or just within the city itself, you will not be disappointed with Mark at your side. - Michael N.

I would highly recommend Mark! - Leshi L.
