The Dysfunction and Dishonesty in NYC Real Estate: An Insider’s Advice on Navigating the Rental Market

My name is Eirik Davey-Gislason and I work in real estate in New York City.  There, I said it.

Real estate in NYC has a horrendous reputation; a well-deserved horrendous reputation.  I didn’t intend to have a career in this field and the fact that I am still in the “business” 7+ years later is amazing to me.  I was looking for a second career and had limited options based on my background as an actor.  Thankfully, I found a firm dedicated to honesty, integrity, transparency and conducting business ethically.  As a result, my experience has been wonderful, positive, and rewarding.  I help many people find new homes.  That should be rewarding, right?

This blog is his opportunity for me to educate everyone who has a horror story or is on the verge of one.  By sharing, preparing and advising my audience on what to expect, what is normal, what is right, and what is wrong, I hope to do my part to expose the wrong-doers and shape the future of this dysfunctional thing we call NYC Real Estate.

Stay tuned for my next post on how to avoid scams and bait and switch schemes in the form of deposits to brokers! Feel free to email me any time at with questions on this or my upcoming blogs. I am honored to help! Eirik
