“Prior to the launch of ResidentialNYC.com, the process of finding a new home was unnecessarily complicated and frustrating for consumers,” said Steven Spinola, President of the Real Estate Board of New York. “Now, consumers can go to ResidentialNYC.com to find accurate and comprehensive listings by thousands of brokers at one address, giving consumers the best selection possible. It’s the ultimate homepage.”
