Several Brooklyn real estate firms have notified the Eagle that they are prepared to help others who were not as lucky in the recent hurricane.
CPEX Real Estate
CPEX reports that its office suffered minimal damage.
"We are up and running," said principal Tim King. "If anyone needs a place to work, charge a phone, send a fax, etc., please feel free to stop by our office. We have some cubicles that are available and we will do all we can to help our fellow New Yorkers cope with this crisis."
Ideal Properties Group
Ideal is offering a reduced brokers fee to all Brooklyn area tenants affected by hurricane Sandy.
"We want to do our part in helping displaced New Yorkers find a new home while lessening the burden that comes along with the search," said Managing Director Aleksandra Scepanovic.
Broker fees for rental apartments in Brooklyn can range from 12 to 15 percent of the residence's annual rent, equal to one and a half to two months of rent, according to Scepanovic.
"By offering a Sandy-size reduction in our rental fees through Nov. 15, we hope to alleviate some of the stress brought on by having to look for a new rental apartment post-storm," she said.
Those whose apartments are currently flooded and need to find a new home quickly, Ideal Properties' rental specialists are at the ready.
