---

Founded by two long-time NYC rental brokers, NoFeeRentDirect.com realized early on that the internet was perfect for delivering all of the essential information that you needed to know about apartments for rent in New York City, instantly and at extremely low cost.

But we also knew you'd want more than just the basics. For example, we knew;
   • You'd want a building photo of every rental apartment building,
   • You'd want photos of the apartment interiors if they were available,
   • And we knew you'd want floor plans if they could be had.
   • And we knew you'd want the ability to have more than just one apartment search profile, professionally tailored to your needs.

We also knew you'd want...
   • Maps with every available rental apartment listing,
   • Lots of relevant neighborhood information, plus
   • Driving directions and mass transit information,
   • And we knew you wanted to be notified instantly and automatically as soon as a new no fee apartment came in that matched your search profile.

And we also knew you'd want...
   • A real live person with years of on-the-street apartment rental experience to answer your questions about how to rent NYC no fee apartments.

Besides all of the above, we knew that you would need to be protected from internet scams and bait and switch listings that are now so common on the internet today on all those "free" websites filled with broker listings

NoFeeRentDirect.com answered the needs listed above by delivering comprehensive LIVE customer support to help guide you about all aspects of the rental process. Our highly acclaimed rental guide, The Essential Guide for Smart Renters, will put you miles ahead of most other prospective renters in finding - and getting - the NYC apartments you want.

It took alot of my own work, but this website led me to a great NYC apt in a great location without a broker fee (other than the $139 I paid to rent-direct for the service). The only negative is that brokers have the ability to find condos, while rent-direct points you in the direction of mainly leasing apartments

My recommendation is to have 3 days, and get an unlimited train pass. Then use rent-direct and be your own broker. It really was amazing to find a great apartment basically on my own!

Usually I have searched my residential place through craigslist to move, but locally in state of VA. Last month I interviewed and got job in NYC, I needed someone to find me an apartment. I was referred to these guys through the receptionist at my new joining, Having not lived in NY before, I had lots of questions about the city, areas, crime rates etc... RDNY thankfully spent good half hour with me on phone. I did some research through their site and got interested in few rentals. Next day when I spoke to them they insisted on paying fee, I paid under $200 for their full access service. I must say at first I was hesitated, but once I got access to the vital information, I think it was money well spent! I started calling people for their rentals and have jot down to two properties which I looked today and decided on one. What seemed impossible just couple weeks back, thanks to these guys I have my new place to land in NYC. I must say I am very happy with these guys for helping out a newbie....
