"Rene was always responsive and on top of every step in the buying / closing process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buying a place in NYC"

Dear Rene,You were as true to form as you presented yourself to be. Considering you worked for the better part of a year to secure my listing, we met several times and you kept in touch every few months, I'm quite pleased to have been your client.
The integrity behind your approach and manner in business stands as a defining anchor to your success. I'm pleased with the quick work you made of what had been a difficult sale in the past. You turned the burden into a reward.
Thank you.


"Rene sold our place after only 2 open houses and for more than asking price. He is extremely knowledgeable, easy to work with and makes an unpleasant process effortless. I would highly recommend Rene if you need to sell your place."

We worked with Rene for over a year and experienced seller generated “bumps” in the road. Rene always analyzed the problem and came up with great suggestions to possibly address the issue. He was always working creatively to obtain the best solution to allow us to reach out goal of buying a brownstone. In addition Rene has an excellent network of support service providers that can help the first time NYC buyer to move the process along – inspection, legal and financial references that are of high integrity.

He will get you to your goal whatever it may be! We are thrilled with our acquisition.

We absolutely loved working with Rene. We learned that it's not about the price of the apt but the mortgage rate matters most and just like that we were able to buy otherwise little too pricey apt for affordable monthly payments due to his diligence, patience and efforts.He was always there for us through the nerve wrecking process before the closing. He calmed down all doubts and showed care until the last minute. We were lucky to have met him.

We appreciated how Rene managed the process to sell our house within an expedited time frame, how he organized Open Houses and private showings in a way that did not disrupt our family life, and how he integrated our requirements in the sale strategy. The house sold above the asking price in a very short time period, thanks, in large part, to Rene's dedication to the listing and ambition.

Rene was very helpful to me. Throughout the process of buying my apartment, he was extremely responsive and helped me looking for places within Manhattan and Brooklyn. I did specially appreciate his smooth, respectful and patient way of interact. I would highly recommend Rene as an experienced real estate professional.

I went to Rene's open house and immediately liked the apartment. I had a very short timeline for moving in and while Rene wasn't able to do magic to reduce the standard 2-week timeline of the building association, on his part he did everything very efficiently. He always replied to my emails promptly during the term of my rental and was overall helpful.


Rene was our broker for a somewhat undirected apartment search in Manhattan and Brooklyn through most of 2015. He was incredibly helpful and patient. He often was able to get us in to see properties on a day's notice and ahead of the open houses and were able to find a place we love and put in an offer before anyone else got to see it. We had a great experience working with him. He was always professional, responsive, and thoughtful. We highly recommend him.

Rene Fauchet was exactly what my wife and I needed when we had to do a real estate transaction. He listened to what we wanted to do and carefully looked for properties that met our needs.
He did not waste our time on anything else. Rene epitomizes professionalism; he is smart, trustworthy, educated re the market, and always responsive to texts, emails and phone calls. When we found what we wanted, he took care of everything step-by-step, and we felt very comfortable that we were in good hands.
Five stars! The best.

Best regards,

"Rene Fauchet did a great job helping us buy our first apartment in NYC. He was very attentive to our needs and budget. He identified a range of options that satisfied our requirements and provided us with a lot of information to facilitate our decision. In the approval process he was on top of his game. I would highly recommend working with Rene".

Rene was incredible. He was such a big help with all the aspects of the process to buy a place on the Upper East Side. His knowledge of the market was a big help since I was coming in from LA. The process took a long time due to lots of complications from both the seller and myself, but his patience and help in directing me towards the right people to make my dream of living in Manhattan come true will never be forgotten. I wasn't prepared for all the hurdles it takes to buy into a NY coop, but Rene was right there to guide me through the process. He went over and above what one would expect from a real estate agent.

Rene is a pleasure to work with. He listens to what you say and reads between the lines to help you work out what you are looking for and can afford. Some brokers will show all clients the same listings but Rene tailors what he presents to his clients based upon what they are looking for. He puts a lot of effort into research and is very diplomatic with other brokers, sellers, etc., and always responsive to our requests.

Rene Fauchet was very helpful in our search for the right house. We had accepted offers on at least 4 houses with Rene negotiating with sellers and their brokers. He tirelessly showed us many more and was attentive to the style, size, and location of what we hoped to find. Always very positive and helped us work through the complications of buying a townhouse.

Recommend highly.

Michael Staats

Rene is not only responsive but also a very patient broker to work with. He totally understood what exactly I was looking for and he only sent me info on apartments that matched my criteria. I highly recommend him.


Although we did not find a home with Rene, it was not because of him. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him and will do so again. Rene is responsive and respectful of each individual's situation. He understands the buyer's needs and is very easy and pleasant to work with. I highly recommend him.


Out of all of the agents & brokers that I work with, Rene Fauchet shows unmatched professionalism when working with his clients. Time after time, he is able to exceed his client's expectations whether it be finding a home, or selling their home. I give my strongest recommendation to Rene, and would absolutely work with him to manage my real estate.

Alex Dorman

My family and I worked with Rene for the entire year in search of the "right" property. During that year there were many changes as to what type of property we wanted to obtain and also as to what its purpose would be.

One thing remained for certain, Rene worked tirelessly all kind of hours. He searched the market to find a property that would suit our needs and make a solid investment. Rene educated and advised us about the areas and the investment opportunities. He went above and beyond to help us deal with few difficult situations that we encountered along the way.

No matter as to what happened,
Rene remained pleasant, respectful and courteous. He guided us through and helped find that one special property that we really love.

Thank you, Rene.

Although realtors share a common profession once a deal is struck you become adversaries each with a fiduciary responsibility to their client. You may get along great but you cannot cross that line.

Many realtors have war stories and recently it was my turn. My story differs because the listing broker’s client placed him in impossible positions which forced us to lower that adversarial wall and work together for months to get the deal done, battling obstacles the entire way.

Rene Fauchet of Douglas Elliman was the listing broker in this difficult deal. He is a hardworking professional that consistently went above and beyond to produce and resolve issues no matter how the dire the situation became. We developed a trust and confidence in one another, supporting one another when it frequently became impossible to see the light. We succeeded to bring seller and buyer to the closing table for a satisfactory outcome.

We learned to navigate the unpleasant and impossible and although neither of us wishes to repeat the episode, it did give me an opportunity to meet and work with one incredible NYC realtor and I would not hesitate to work with Rene Fauchet again anytime,,,anywhere!
