Airbnb's fairytale expansion in major cities around the world faces a rude awakening as it finds itself embroiled in disputes with city governments. We discuss the nature of the sharing economy in which the company operates, how the sharing economy impacts the real economy and the regulatory measures being taken to curb its adverse impact on the housing market.
In the age of the sharing economy, its flag-bearer finds itself in murky legal and ethical waters with governments and housing interests.

"I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new apartment in Manhattan."
"It makes me sick to know that I will be forced by policy to give her commission."
"I'd definitely suggest using a broker, especially Ugonna, to find your place."

Elijah Brown was truly awesome to work with. He's super friendly, professional, plus quick and easy to communicate with. I honestly feel that I would not have gotten my dream apartment if it wasn't for his persistent follow through with the owner in getting our application to be chosen. All in all I couldn't recommend him(and Elegran) more!

Elegran is truly a 5-star Real Estate Agency! My girlfriend and I moved to NYC from Ohio with very little knowledge of the New York market. We originally met with a different broker who tried to take advantage of us by attempting to charge us double commission. Luckily we were able to part ways and team up with Elijah Brown. Elijah is spectacular! When we met, he was very honest and upfront with us right away. He educated us on the NY market and his broker costs. We then gave Elijah one day to find us our dream apartment within our demanding specifications, and he DELIVERED! Elijah was very professional and personable. I would highly recommend Elijah Brown and Elegran to next of kin!

I am grateful to have met Meena Ziabari, she made an excellent job in helping me found a house while I was out of the country. I was told that finding an apartment in NYC was a very difficult and exhausting process but it was really easy and quick to find it thanks to her. She took the time to really listen and understand what I was looking for. I highly recommend her professionalism and knowledge of the market.

I was in the market for a new apartment rather unexpectedly and was on a tight schedule as well as a fixed budget. As a free lancer in the city, getting an apartment is not exactly easy. I contacted Ugonna Onekwe, after looking at a few apartments with another broker and I really feel like he took my particular situation into account and worked hard to find me the right place. I gave him my specifics and he did all the legwork, contacting me within a few days with appointments lined up to see 4-5 places. Each of the buildings he took me to were exactly the feel I was looking for, and there was a decent range of layouts and views and neighborhoods to choose from. I picked one of the buildings he showed me and he helped me get all the necessary paperwork in order, as well as presenting me with options for dealing with my free lance status as a renter. The whole process was easy and Ugonna really helped me to feel at peace and comfortable during what was feeling like a very stressful time. I have already referred one friend to him and will gladly refer friends when I hear they are in the market for a new place.

I could not be more pleased with my experience looking for an apartment in Manhattan with Daniel Chun at Elegran. Though I was working with a tight schedule, he was able to line up apartments that were within my preferred location and price range. Daniel coordinated everything ahead of time and was on point; all the apartments that we looked at fit my specifications and were scheduled with maximum efficiency so as to be able to see as much as possible with my limited schedule. In one afternoon, I was able to select a great apartment and had a fun time in the process!

I was in contract to sell the apartment I had lived in for nearly 20 years, had not found that "bigger place" I had intended to buy, and had less than 2 weeks to find a rental in NYC. I was furiously searching on-line for "no-fee" apartment buildings, making appointments to see apartments in my price range, and fearing the worst. Enter Daniel Chun: He noticed that I had accessed his company's real estate listings and asked if he could be of any assistance. He accompanied me to look at a studio apartment--it was smaller than my office. There was no way I could fit my "stuff" in that box. Daniel sat me down, asked me what I was looking for in an ideal world, and then told me he would take care of it. He also told me that we should not bother looking at the other apartment he had scheduled to show me (I was slightly shocked when he said that, but more so appreciative!) I walked back to my soon-to-be-sold apartment almost sure I would be knocking on my parents' door with all of my possessions in boxes on the curb. A day or two later, Daniel called to tell me we would be spending Saturday looking at apartments. I was very skeptical--but desperate--so off I went. The first apartment we saw was...perfect! The second apartment we saw was...perfect! The third and fourth apartments he showed me were...perfect! I could not believe my eyes. I could envision myself living in each and every apartment we saw that day! I had been running around for weeks looking at apartments I had personally picked out for myself on-line, only to find that they were nothing like I had expected. In one day, Daniel Chun showed me 4 perfect apartments. How did he manage that? He listened, asked questions, and listened some more, until he understood what I wanted and, more importantly, what I needed in a home. Then he helped me decide which one to actually rent--and thank goodness he did, because I truly had no idea what to do! To say that I highly recommend Daniel Chun is truly an understatement. His expertise in everything real estate related, coupled with his ability, determination, and passion for matching people to places, makes him the only real estate agent I will ever use again. SR

Ugonna Onyekwe at Elegran was a pleasure to work with for our office rental search. He helped us find a beautiful penthouse office space very quickly that met all of our criteria: budget, location, size, amenities, and lease terms. Ugonna took time to thoroughly understand our needs and priorities and remained in close touch through our search with updates on new available properties and updates. He was very flexible and understanding of our busy startup schedule. Ugonna's a great overall guy, very friendly and professional. I'd highly recommend him.
