Working with Allen was like working with a friend. He knew our style and taste just from a short conversation and helped us find our home. He was very communicative and honest, keeping us posted with his communication with the landlord of the apartment we were interested in. I even ran into Allen at the subway and we had a lovely conversation, like a said: it's like working with a friend. He explained every process and never beat around the bush. He's your guy!

I had an absolutely terrific experience with Allen Lyons and Gillian McKenzie of Urban Realty when I searched and then rented an apartment at 2838 Stillwell Avenue. They were always straightforward with me, to the point, keeping me up on things as they slowly evolved (the tenants of the original apartment I was interested in decided to renew, but then another apartment just like it became available). I signed the lease yesterday after viewing the unit, which far exceeded what I had imagined in my wildest dreams. I have lived in Park Slope for thirty-two years, watching it take off in terms of real estate but also watching it change people-wise. Coney Island always appealed to me, but I wasn’t really sure what was available or if I would be able to find anything I liked or could afford. Allen and Gillian made it so easy. And now I have the best apartment in the world and the true New York mix of people that I embraced when I first moved from the West Coast in 1983. I’m recommending Allen, Gillian, and Urban Realty to anybody and everybody that will listen

This agent responded promptly to my request to see the apartment, he was late to the viewing but he was apologetic and courteous while showing me the place. I told him I would make my decision overnight and would call him early in the morning. Well for the next four days I called him day and night. He texted me on the second day asking if he could call me, I responded within 10 minutes saying yes. That was over one month ago. At least I could see how unprofessional he was very early on and didn't wait for his call because since then I met a REAL broker who helped me secure an even better apartment. Never do business with him. UNPROFESSIONAL and disrespectful of your time all the way

I'm sorry but I never met with you nor do I have any inquiries from you. I wish you the best.

Responded quickly to my inquiry. He was helpful, polite and showed the exact same apartment that was advertised. He kept in contact throughout the process and got a quick approval. Highly recommend!

Allen showed me an apartment in Prospect Heights that I immediately knew I wanted to sign. From the start Allen felt like refreshingly like a normal person who didn't use any sales speak or inorganic behavior. I felt like he was always on my side and in the end he helped me move forward with an exceptionally fast approval and signing process. Definitely recommend Allen for your apt search.

If your looking for a true professional Allen is the agent you should work it. From the beginning Allen was very responsive, he listened to our needs and showed us apartments within our budget. Anytime I had a question he would respond instantly. My family and I are very excited about our new apartment. I highly recommend Allen, he's a fabulous agent.

Left a message for Allen over 4th of July weekend and he reached back out within the hour even though he was out of town. After a quick call to a colleague, I was met at the bldg by another agent ready to show the apt with no notice. Allen was beyond polite, informative and most importantly responsive. Would definitely recommend and work with again!

Allen is a fantastic agent and a wonderful person who made our apartment search painless and even pleasurable. He went above and beyond the call to help us find and secure the perfect apartment; he was always available when we had questions or needed help, and went out of his way to take care of us. I can't say enough good things about him. A true professional: honest, dedicated, hard-working, personable, responsive...everything you could ever ask for. You won't find a better agent out there!

Allen was very kind and quick to respond, but he showed us a completely different apartment than the one advertised. First of all, the address was different, so all of the research we did on the building ahead of time was useless. Secondly, the apartment did NOT match the pictures, which showed a brick fireplace that did not exist in the apartment at all. It was a classic bait-and-switch move, and even when he suggested other apartments in the area, we decided not to view, because we no longer felt comfortable shopping with him.

Look no further, Allen Lyons holds the golden keys to your dream apartment! Allen helped us secure a beautiful 1 bedroom apartment in Sunset Park. He was always available, honest, courteous, and very knowledgeable about the market. Allen made the horrific apartment hunting experience much easier and we ended up with a great home that met all of our requirements. We highly recommend him and have already referred him to friends!

Allen is a fantastic agent. He helped us find a great apartment and made a tedious and stressful process so much easier. He was honest and upfront about what criteria the landlord was looking for in his tenants. He was always willing to work within our schedule and was in contact with us without being pushy. He was even able to meet with us after the lease signing so we were able to show our family and take measurements. I'd highly recommend working with him! 5 stars all the way!

Allen is a great agent. He showed us a lot of apartments during a thunderstorm and was still so pleasant to work with. He listened to what we were looking for and knew just what to show us. We would gladly work with Allen again next time we're looking to move. Just one advice: Allen will show you so many great units, you should take notes and photos so you can remember what you liked and didn't like about each so it's easier to choose.

Now that we've moved into our unit, we're ecstatic and are pleased with our choice. Thank you, Allen!
