New York Habitat was established in 1989 under the auspices of Founder and President Marie-Reine Jézéquel. Its French subsidiary company was opened with an Office in Paris in 1996 and further developed with the South of France in 2001 and a new subsidiary company in London, U.K., in 2002.
The idea for the company came after recognizing the lack of options available to travelers who desired more personal accommodations than those provided in hotels. This is how New York Habitat designed a way to give travelers the feeling of what it is like to live independently in New York, Paris, the South of France or London, by arranging stays in quality furnished apartments. Our approach was and is unique, and has been embraced by the international travel community. Since its inception, the company has grown and expanded its services and clientele. Originally serving mostly French visitors to New York, New York Habitat now serves a vast international clientele.
New York Habitat is a full service real estate agency licensed in the United States by the State of New York. New York Habitat-Europe is its French subsidiary company approved by the Syndicat National des Professionnels Immobiliers (SNPI) and New York Habitat-London Ltd is its British subsidiary company. We are member of the Better Business Bureau. Due to our relations with the world of travel, we are also endorsed by IATAN. We also have a relationship with Travelex Insurance Services.
