My roommate and I contacted Ariel in early July hoping to find a small but well-kept two bedroom on a tight budget. While the apartment we ended up signing was higher than our preferred price point, we found a gem in Harlem well before our August move-in date and really enjoyed our search with him. We had our fair share of crazy brokers and building owners, so working with Ariel was a welcome relief. He communicated quickly, wasn't at all creepy or pushy, and made the search easy by driving us to each apartment destination. In total, we spent about 6 hours with Ariel over two Saturdays, and knew we would have no regrets about paying the broker's fee. (When we encountered locked apartments, he literally sought out the super in the streets.) We were also able to have frank, non-pitchy conversations about neighborhood safety and fun things to do in the area. It really helped us build a vision for living in each place, beyond the apartment walls. Honestly, the apartment search with Ariel was just plain fun--and super efficient. We'd recommend him without any hesitations.

I rented an apartment from this agent.

Ariel worked hard to find the right apartment for me despite the fact that I had a very specific search criteria. I appreciate him taking the time to personally drive us to the apartment to look at them. I would recommend Ariel to anyone.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

With only three weeks left before ending our lease and mandatorily leave our apartment, we decided to jump on the gun on using a realtor to find our next nyc apartment. We found Ariel in an overwhelming and overflowing pool of apartment brokers and we're very glad we did. He had been very accommodating and helpful to us. Unlike other realtors we have dealt with, he was with us, physically present checking out and looking at the apartments. He listened carefully and and made sure to cater to our apartment requirements, needs and hesitations. All with a very friendly demeanor. Throughout the process, he had been very prompt with providing us necessary requirements and responding to all our inquiries and concerns, big or small. We went through a lot of major road blocks on claiming the apartment we want but Ariel managed to find the right solutions for us. To top it all, he gave us a favorable rate. And yes, we got the apartment we want and in time for our deadline. If we had to go through it again, he's definitely on top if our list.

Ariel was extremely knowledgable and helpful throughout the whole experience. Having a car, he was able to show us a lot of apartments in a short amount of time. When I need to move again he will be the first person I call.

Ariel is a breath of fresh air in the whole apartment finding process. He was extremely personal, lending out his cell phone number and always responding quickly with any questions I or my roommates had. He was on top of things and made sure we got into our place and were happy.

I highly recommend him, he will make the entire pain of finding an apartment in New York seem like smooth sailing.
