Since 1999 I have spearheaded a community effort by providing affordable housing to students & entry-level professionals willing to consider housing outside of Manhattan, Brooklyn, & Queens. I am NOT an employee of the landlord, I am NOT a real estate person, NOR do I work on commission. I do however occupy the premises & volunteer my time facilitating communications & repairs within the property. I work full-time as a public servant in the engineering field & my time is limited (ergo, serious inquiries only). I am invested, professional & responsive & I ask for all potential renters to reciprocate in kind. I pride myself on being transparent, an innate problem-solver & a straight-shooter. Should you be financially, physically or mentally unstable I am NOT qualified to pursue a relationship w/you much less one that yields a long-term communal housing situation. That said, I am overall a positive influence.
