Never responded to my inquiry.
Amauris Martinez Rodriguez Responded:
I see you contacted me June 19th, 2016 at 12:09pm for a one bedroom apartment on Hamilton Heights and I replied on June 19th. 2016 at 12:15pm, then you replied to me the same day at 12:35 pm, then I replied to you at 12:40pm the same day. Then, again you contacted me on July 7th and I replied to you to let you know that the apartment is ready and then I never heard back from you. I do not know why you stated on your review that " Never responded to my inquire" if I replied to all of your emails

He responded very quickly to all of my emails and even made an appointment that was convenient for me on a weekend. Unfortunately, it turned out to be not such a pleasant experience. He was late in meeting with us. When he finally came, no type of emotion, no engaging conversation about who we were and what we're looking for, absolutely NOTHING! Very awkward moment for my fiancé and I because he just did not seemed interested in any communication with us. When we get to the apartment, his only words were "if you have any questions, just ask". Not once did he tell us about the place nor did he ask us what we thought or wanted. When we did asked question, it was like pulling teeth, and when I asked him to email me, his response "sure, just text me your email"... I wanted to scream "we have been emailing each other for a week and you still don't know me!" Seriously, if you cannot meet with clients on a Saturday to even fake like you enjoy what you do for a living, at least, reschedule for another time when you have the energy and interest. Horrible experience! There are other realtors in NYC that's more accommodating and have better communication skills.

amauris responded very quickly to my initial inquiry, and we set a time to see a few apartments. he met us on time, and had lots of apartments to show us in our price range. his fee was super reasonable compared to other agents we worked with, and he had access to everything they did. renting in nyc is a pretty terrible process in general, but amauris helped everything move smoothly. he was professional, knowledgable, and didn't pressure us. he was there from start to finish. i hope to stay put for a few years, but i would use him again!

There's a reason Amauris has so many and such good reviews. He makes a stressful process as smooth as possible. He works hard, answers Qs, explains terms and paperwork, and remains so wonderfully (and almost contagiously) calm. He really knows his stuff, and NYC is an odd real estate market. If you want a place in upper Manhattan, especially in Washington Heights, he is your man.

In the few hours that mr. Rodriguez and myself have been going back and forth regarding f an apartment, he has been very quick to respond and answer any questions that I may have. We have tentative plans to meet the Friday after Thanksgiving if the apartment is still available. I also requested that we look at any others that may pop up between now and the Friday after Thanksgiving. I have been in sales and would rate mister Rodriguez 5 star

Amauris was a HUGE help throughout the whole process of renting my first apartment. He knows his stuff well. If you don't like the first one you see, ask him for more options with the things you're looking for. He's very honest and will let you make your own decisions after he gives you all the info you need.

Amauris is your guy if you want a great and affordable apartment in upper Manhattan! He listens to what you want and does not try to persuade you into getting a place. He allows you to view the listing and ask any questions, he's very hands off unless you actually want to put in an application. I recently rented my new apartment with his help. I'd definitely recommend his services!

Amauris and I met when my roommate and I were searching for a two bedroom apartment in Washington Heights. The places he showed us at first were good but did not win us over. Afterwards he assured us that later in the week he could show us places more to our liking. He is very knowledgeable of the area and showed us a recently renovated apartment in prime Washington Heights that we are happy to now call home. He was patient with us and was genuinely interested in not only our business but also in squashing our fears in regards to the crazy world of renting in NYC. He even took the time to explain the best practices he has learned and how the landscape has changed. If you are looking for someone knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile Amauris is your guy! I would definitely recommend him and work with him again in the future.

We did not end up renting with Amauris but were very close to applying on one of the units he showed us. He asked all the right questions to know exactly what we were looking for. He showed us a handful of beautiful units in our price range and was very honest throughout the whole process. He was fast to respond to our questions and pleasure to deal with overall. I cannot speak to the application process with his company but the showing stage was excellent.

Amauris is great! He responded quickly to every question, and gave us lots of detail when we were confused about the application process. He is very above board about everything, including his fee, which was right on the listing. Once we were approved, the lease signing took place quickly, and he updated us as soon as management received it. We were really glad to rent an apartment through him!

He was minimally communicative with me. I contacted him about a unit he advertised and it took over a week of me hounding him to hear that he finally got the keys from the super. But the kicker was he had gotten the keys the day before to show someone else. Thanks. :(

Amauris Martinez Rodriguez Responded:
Hi Carol. I'm sorry you were disappointed with my service. I always try to provide the best service. I showed you 4 apartments and could not show you one because the contractors had the keys. The day before you contacted me, I specified to you that I would be showing the apartment the next morning but I did not hear back from you :( Im more than happy to continue working with you. Please feel to contact me.

He knows the neighborhood, and is happy to completely honest with you about your check list and budget fits into the reality of the neighborhood. He was extremely helpful with putting the application together and answered all of my questions before and after I signed the lease. I recommend him highly!

Amauris responded to all of my initial inquiries. When I finally met with him he was unable to gain access to the one apartment that had a possibility of meeting my criteria. I heard back about that apartment after I wrote this review.

Overall I found him to be unprofessional, but apparently he has only been doing this for two years. Maybe he'll get better with more experience.

Amauris responded to my initial inquiry very quick and we scheduled a time and a place to meet. He was there on time and showed me 2 great apartments. I ended up rented one of the 2 from Amauris and overall had a good experience. He was very flexible with me in terms of coming into the office to fill out paperwork and even followed up with me after my move-in date to make sure everything went alright. I would definitely recommend working with Amauris as he seems to have access to great apartments and will provide you with great service.

The first time I worked with him he seemed like amateur. he wasn't as aggressive as I would have liked As far as offering us other apartments to look at, Or following up with me. I'm coincideantally going to work with him a second time because he was the agent that's assigned to the apartment that I like, And I'm hoping for better results! Otherwise, he seemed like a very pleasant young man.

Amauris was GREAT to work with. He had a great deal on an apartment, and I reached out to him and he got back to me the same day. I set up a viewing the next day with him, and he made time after hours to show me the apartment because of my work schedule. He gave me all of the info I asked for and more, and the day after viewing it, he assisted me in the application process, getting my documents together as quickly as possible, and explaining how everything worked. He kept me updated via text as to the status of the documents as waiting for approval is the hardest part. A few days later, he let me know I was approved for the apartment! Today I got the keys and I'm all set!

If you want to work with someone who is responsive, has great listings, and has your best interest in mind, I highly recommend working with Amauris.

UPDATE:
Broker responded after reading my review and stated that he did not intend to be rude.

Initial Review:
Responded promptly to my initial inquiry (contacted him through a different site), but when I replied via email with my income and credit limitations (being honest to avoid wasting anyone’s time) and questions, there was no response. Sent another email stating that I haven’t heard from him, and he responded promptly and rudely, stating that he already replied. There are more professional ways to tell someone you can’t work with them.
