If you're going to spend your hard earned money using a broker to help you secure an apartment, I'm going to make sure your transaction is flawless. 

I will not show you an apartment that I would not live in myself. 

I will not cancel on you last minute, unless I have a very, very, very good reason. 

I will respond quickly to your calls and emails. 

I will not surprise you with hidden fees or handle your deposits unfairly. 

I do my best to keep my Naked Apartments page as up to date as possible. If you find a listing on my page, it is more than likely to be available.

I rented my apartment through Adam almost a year ago. Throughout the entire transaction he was very professional, prompt and delivered great client service. I am sure anyone who’s visiting this site knows that finding an apartment in NYC can be an extremely frustrating, depressing and challenging process. Adam is one of the very few brokers who works extremely hard to help alleviate some of those challenges, resulting in a seamless and less frustrating experience for clients. I highly recommend Adam!

I'm perplexed by this agent's reviews. For me, Adam was not prompt, efficient or communicative, which was very disappointing. Coordinating with him was like pulling teeth and gave the impression he did not want, have time for or care for my business.

After a month of looking for apartments I saw one of Adam's listings (posted that day) that looked like a perfect fit...All I had to do was see it, and if I liked it in person, I was prepared to apply on the spot.

I both responded to the ad AND texted Adam that morning saying I was very interested and would love to see the place that night if possible. But the only response I got from the agent was a message via NakedApartments "noting that we are in communication via text."

If my sending him a text to no response = being "in communication," fine, but I didn't hear from him again that day. I even called at the end of the day, but got voice mail. The next day (Friday) I called the agent again throughout the day and got voice mail. Finally as the Friday was wrapping up I texted again.

He finally responds, asking for the usual (income, credit, employment, etc.) I respond, but having not heard back for 20 minutes I texted again and asked if I could see it tonight because I really wanted to make a decision asap.

He told me it was too short notice (even though I initially contacted him the morning before), okay fine, but then he said that he wouldn't be available until Monday (Huh? What rental agent posts a listing before the last weekend of the month of June, only to take that weekend off??) That means he probably never planned to contact me until Monday or later despite Monday being the 29th and July 1st being only 2 days later!!...I started to just forget about it, but I asked again what time Monday he would be available....He wrote, "Before I schedule let me tell you the move in costs..." Why was scheduling a simple showing being made into a 2-day back-and-forth via text message?! He sent the costs... "Can you handle the move-in costs?" When I said Yes, he didn't respond until the next morning, asking what time Monday I can meet, I responded. He never replied. The next day (Sunday) I had to text again, asking if what I replied worked for him. He said only the later option, which was Monday night. He said the application process can be 2-5 days! And he couldn't guarantee others haven't already applied and only half the application fee would be returned. I texted back calling everything off. This was a waste of time.

BOTTOM LINE
I give Adam a low rating because:

A)He was not prompt in responding to my inquiry. In this market at this time of year, one day, even a few hours, delay in responding to inquiries (for both parties) is too long, especially at the end of the month. I have spoken with good agents at all hours of the night and weekends.

B)I had to constantly initiate conversation and grab Adam's attention and even then texting with him and trying to set up a simple showing was like pulling teeth, going through endless texts/questions about my salary and personal info, and a list of standard fees every rental in NYC has (a savvy broker would assume I wouldn't be inquiring about the apt if I couldn't "handle" these basic costs).

C) The agent was not flexible and was probably too busy to meet my simple needs or even appear interested/willing to help me. Based on my dealings with other agents, Adam was way too slow to respond and not flexible or efficient with scheduling. For a rental agent to not be available all weekend on the last weekend of a summer (or fall) month seems odd. How can a broker demand applicants have decent jobs, but refuse to be available on off hours for showings or communication?

D)The agent did nothing to earn a 10% brokerage fee. I had to do all the coordinating, poking and prodding just to get him to agree to schedule a viewing, pulling teeth and initiating contact over the course of 4 days, while Adam came across as dubious and noncommittal with me. And text is a horrible way to screen/schedule.

Unfortunately my experience with this agent didn't seem to match everyone else's, and based on my experience I would NOT recommend this agent, unless you are willing to text back and forth for days or are interested in listing$ that he may devote more energy to.

Adam was very patient and courteous to me. He answered all the inquiries I had about the apartment I was interested in before I've seen it. I've had a lot of doubts about renting the apartment he was offering, but he talked me through it and managed to convince me during my showing and alleviated all the concerns I had. He made the rental process easy and efficient - he was very hands on and kept me posted constantly regarding my application. And he delivered on his promise of getting the apartment and moving in on a specific date. I was very lucky to get an agent like Adam - He is very friendly and approachable, and will not just sell you on an apartment as an agent, but as a friend that you can trust.

Adam was super helpful when it came to finding an apartment. He was prompt in getting back to me and answering any questions. I actually ended up renting the first place he showed me. (He even took me back to look at it a second time a few days later, just so I could be 100% sure.) I appreciated his patience and would recommend him to others looking for a no nonsense broker that will still treat you like a person.

Adam was very courteous. He quickly responded to my inquiry about the apartment which I was interested and informed me of when I should start seriously looking.
I am a bit too early but I know when I should start and what I'm expected to produce as a renter.

Although we did not rent an apartment with Adam, he was very helpful with trying to find us an apartment that fit our budget and that we would like. He gave us great knowledge about how the renting process worked and kept us up to date when new apartments that fit our criteria came to market. I would work with him again in the future.

Adam is truly wonderful at what he does. He was knowledgeable about the apartment he showed me and even knew some of the buildings history. He is very easy going and eager to assist you in any way that he can. I don’t know how I would have found my apartment without him. Every step of the way was clear and organized.

Thanks again Adam!

Gary: Adam is a very professional agent. He assisted me in securing a great apartment in the Flatbush - Ditmas Park area. There were a few hiccups along the way, but Adam handled them in the most professional manner. He answered all my questions with a speedy response time. I would not only recommend this broker, but I would certainly work with him again.

Adam is the ideal broker; he answered all my questions without hesitation and promptly contacted the building owner for answers to questions he was unable to answer. Adam is extremely courteous and accommodating,and, though I am hoping to get the apt I've already applied for through him, if I don't I will continue working with Adam until we find a place. P.S.: Adam found a wonderful apartment for me!

I had a great experience with Adam. He was friendly, very knowledgable about the apartment and building I saw, and extremely patient in answering ALL of my questions (and I had tons). He also took time to talk about what I was looking for specifically and make suggestions about other rentals he would have for viewing later in the month. As a bonus--there was a building I passed that looked amazing. After our meeting, he called the management company to see if they had anything open, which was above and beyond. I didn't end up renting an apartment through him (I was working with multiple brokers), but I'd recommend him to anyone looking in the areas he covers.

Adam is pretty awesome! He was able to find me a really nice apartment for the money where other rental agents did not. Unlike other agents, he did not ignore my inquiries and never tried to pressure me into anythings. He was honest, courteous, and very professional. I have a new apartment and ready to move in. Thanks Adam, you made this stressful experience wonderful.

Adam was quick to respond, pleasant, and totally no nonsense! He was fantastic to deal with, meeting us (my fiance and I) late on a weeknight to give us the applications and then early the next morning to get our deposit, all so he could be first in line to submit our application. When it was time to sign the lease, he sat with us and went through every page, making sure we understood what we were signing and giving us time to read. I've already recommended him to friends. Adam is the guy you actually want work with. Highly recommended.

I had a week to find an apartment on a smaller budget, and I reached out to a dozen different brokers. Adam was quick to respond and follow up with all of my questions as well as arranging for me to visit the apartment I was interested in. He showed us additional units in the same building and I ended up finding the perfect place!
He answered questions promptly and made himself available for anything we might need during the signing and decision process.
I'm more than thrilled with my new home and thank Adam for making it possible!
