I was fortunate to work with Will the past few weeks as he guided my wife and I in our apartment search. Will is friendly and attentive and really cares about finding his clients a home that meets their needs. He took the time to understand what was important to us and tried to only show us apartments that were in line with our expectations. He was also flexible with his time and really made us feel like we were his priority. I would recommend Will to friends and certainly would work with him again in the future. - Jordan K.

William Yau was fantastic to work with. He is a very clear communicator, consistently responsive, always reliable, knowledgeable, and a helpful teacher throughout the homebuying process. In addition, he is highly patient and personable. I would highly recommend working with William if you want an experience that reduces the stress and increases the clarity of the process. He will help you consider many factors to find the right place for you. - Benjamin E.

If you’re looking for a person to help with finding an apartment, I highly recommend William Yau. He’s very knowledgeable with NYC, specifically in Queens where he helped me find an apartment in a luxury building. And what was more surprising was that the building paid for his fees. Yes, there are places that pay for agent fees. He will gladly explain that. I gave him a budget and told him what I was looking for and he already had a few in mind. What stood out the most to me was he did only help with finding a place but also helped with the lease signing process. If you haven’t signed a lease in NYC before, it can be a long and frustrating process. But William was there every step of the way even after all was signed. - Jonathan S.

Worked with Will on finding an apartment for my move cross country from SF to NYC. I gave him my requirements and criteria prior to arriving. On the day of our appointment, Will took me around to a few apartments and I was able to find the one early on in our visits! We ended up cancelling the rest of the appointments for the day because he was able to pinpoint the perfect apartment for me quickly. Highly recommended!!! - James R.

William was an absolute amazing real estate broker. He took a very personal approach and listened to what I was looking for in an apartment as well as my own unique situation/circumstances. Coming with some pre-conceived notions on the difficulties of being approved for certain apartments, William convinced me to stay optimistic. He made the whole process extremely pleasant and at every potential roadblock, William walked me through the situation and explored all options with me. Ultimately, I was approved for the apartment of my dreams and I cannot wait to move in. I owe all of it to William and I would definitely recommend him to absolutely anyone in need of his services. - Steven L.
