Kovan's Biography
Kovan Pillai helps New Yorkers navigate the often confusing New York real estate market to find the place best suited to them. Kovan uses his platform as the NYCRentalExpert to provide news, tips, and insights on the city's rental market,

Kovan was born and educated in England but has also lived in Singapore and Hong Kong. He graduated with Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in mathematics from Oxford University and obtained a PhD in mathematics from NYU. He has worked as an astrophysicist, a teacher, a medical researcher and also an equities portfolio manager at a Hedge Fund; he also tutors mathematics around the city and knows its neighborhoods and schools very well. Kovan is a property-owner in Murray Hill and is therefore keenly attuned to the New York City real-estate market.

When he’s not helping his clients, Kovan enjoys traveling (60 countries and counting) and talking to people from different backgrounds, using his fluency in Spanish and French to good effect.
