Our no-cost, e-classified Matchmaker to a Manhattan residential property.

Our no-cost, e-classified Matchmaker to a Manhattan residential property. Here’s how it works:

Find Me a Match – For Buyers
Find Me a Match – For Brokers

1. A buyer finds their next home by filling out the “Find Me a Match” form below.
Your parameters are posted on our Match Me board
2. The buyer’s parameters are posted on our Match Me board
3. Owners and brokers have unlimited, cost-free access to a buyer whose criteria and financial profile match their  property.
4. An owner and/or their broker can submit an “I Have a Match” response to the buyer through Regarding Real Estate.
5. Based on the buyer’s completed Find Me A Match form, Regarding Real Estate uses an unbiased process to decide whether   there is a “feasible” real estate match. If there is, both the buyer and the broker/seller are notified.
6. If both parties agree, an appointment to visit the property is scheduled.


This is how “Find Me a Match” defines the parameters needed.

A Budget range

B Neighborhood preference

C Room count

D Bedroom(s)

E Bathroom count

F The buyer’s overriding priorities, which have been clarified by completing the Regarding Real Estate Personal Planner

G. Amenities and appurtenances, as described in Mastering Manhattan’s Educating yourself section.
