How We Selected The Winners

PropertyNest's editorial team compiled a list of companies and service providers in each category serving the New York City area and selected those vendors that stood out from other companies using decisive criteria.

The Best Insurance Carriers

In both renters and homeowners insurance categories, we looked at three main components to determine our winners--usability or access, financial strength, and affordability.

For security deposit and guarantor insurance companies, we looked at affordability, fast landlord approval, and flexibility in eligibility to determine the best.

The Best Home-Related Service Providers

We had expanded criteria for home service providers. In most categories, we looked a customer service, affordability, accessibility or response time, and unique services or features to distinguish vendors from hundreds of others.
