Insurent Grows Rapidly in Brooklyn as the Brooklyn Neighborhoods and Rents Surge

Share Article

The Insurent® Lease Guaranty Program was created to assist landlords, condo/co-op owners, renters and brokers in closing residential leases. Insurent allows thousands of leases to quickly and easily close to the benefit of all parties.

Insurent is a fantastic tool for Brooklyn owners to lower their vacancies and increase their profits while reducing their risk of rent loss, all at no cost to the owner.

As Brooklyn neighborhoods and rents surge, the number of Brooklyn multifamily owners using the Insurent Lease Guaranty has grown by nearly 50% in the first eight months alone of 2013.

Charles Schoenau, Managing Director of Insurent, commented, “Brooklyn is exploding in a stunning way, and it is reflected in higher rents, huge renter traffic, and the many new developments and more renovations. Insurent is getting deluged with calls from renters, owners, and brokers who need to use Insurent and want it in their Brooklyn buildings. It is understandable as the rents in many Brooklyn neighborhoods equal or exceed the high rents in Manhattan neighborhoods, and it is hard for many domestic and international people to meet the owners' criteria even though they are well qualified renters in terms of resources to pay the rent."

"Although we are growing in all boroughs of NYC rapidly, Brooklyn has been overwhelming," says Schoenau. "In the next three weeks, we are scheduled to meet with many Brooklyn owners who are planning on adopting Insurent for the same reasons that over 1,400 building representing over 225,000 units accept Insurent.”

Insurent is also engaging in a Brooklyn outreach campaign to seek out and meet with other Brooklyn owners and brokers unaware of the Insurent Program and its benefits to owners, renters and brokers. Insurent will be speaking at the Brooklyn Summit on September 17th, and in the coming weeks will also be meeting privately with numerous owners and brokerage firms.

Jeffrey Geller, Chief Operating Officer of Insurent, adds, “Insurent is a fantastic tool for Brooklyn owners to lower their vacancies and increase their profits while reducing their risk of rent loss, all at no cost to the owner. At the same time, Insurent gives large pools of renters the opportunity to achieve their dream of getting their desired apartment in the many popular and surging Brooklyn neighborhoods. ”


The Insurent Lease Guaranty Program was created to serve renters, landlords, condo/coop owners, and brokers and relocation specialists by offering the first institutional guarantor of residential leases. It is now accepted in Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Illinois, New Jersey, Massachusetts and New York. The Insurent Lease Guaranty Program has been featured in the New York Times, The Real Deal, The New York Real Estate Journal, Real Estate Weekly and Multi-Housing News.

The Insurent Lease Guaranty Program is underwritten and issued by Argonaut Insurance Company, a property and casualty insurance company rated A (Excellent) by A. M. Best. Instead of looking for an individual guarantor or co-signer, or having to pay a significantly larger security deposit or prepaid rent, a renter may utilize the Insurent Lease Guaranty to satisfy the landlord’s financial and credit requirements.
