I highly recommend Bari Dolin. She is totally honest and reliable, and works hard. We had one weekend to find a studio for our daughter who will be attending NYU in January. We told her our price range, (the low range), and she came through, showing us about 6 apartments in one day. We found one, and she made the paper work as easy as possible. She helped set up our paperwork, a week ahead so the process would run smoothly. Dori is personable, and nice as well.

Bari was wonderful to work with. We needed to get our daughter out of a bad dorm situation - over one weekend Bari found us a great apartment, helped us close on it, and even found us a great mover that would work on a Sunday. On top of that, she recommended a great restaurant for us to go out and celebrate afterwards. The whole process could not have gone more smoothly. We highly recommend Bari and will absolutely use her again if the need arises.

She listened to my requirements and budget and had 6 lined up for me. I put in applications for the first two I saw and skipped the rest. I was approved within 24 hours, because she went back to the office that night and processed my paperwork. I still owe her a drink. She's not just knowledgeable - but she's also a great person. She's really seems as if she's not going to try to push some apartment on you, that she wouldn't live in herself. She's more like your cheerleader in this NYC renting madness, not a sleazy car salesman. I've referred her to coworkers and friends, without giving it a second thought. Get extra cards from her. You'll want to pass them out.

Found us a great apartment! Didn't waste our time with apartments that did not meet our needs and price range. Very diligent and helpful with paperwork and leasing process. Highly recommend!

Bari is top-notch and a friend for life. If you want pushy, go elsewhere. She is truly interested in getting you in the best apartment for you. This comes from someone who communicated a few times by email, flew across the country from Hawaii and walked the pavement with her one afternoon. By the end of that day, we locked an apartment that was perfect for us. Aloha!

Bari’s first interactions with me were so professional, detailed and answered all of my questions. The back and forth that ensued was largely in part to my many questions, concerns or likes/dis likes. Bari continued to be prompt in her responses with great detail and professionalism.

We met on a Saturday and it was an instant hit. Bari was personable, professional and totally got what I was looking for. That day didn’t feel like “apartment hunting” at all. We actually found a great apartment and began the process of an offer and subsequent paperwork. To say the road was rough would be an understatement. (no fault of Bari's) Through it all Bari was in my corner. I never worried through anything because I knew Bari had my back. I felt comfortable and taken care of.

Once approved trying to get the lease signed was a whole new ordeal. Mostly caused by the building’s broker who was one of the most unprofessional person I’ve worked with in my life.

Again, through it all, Bari made me feel like I was her only client. Supporting any decision I made and helping to guide me to make the right decisions.

Even as I’m typing this review, I get a text from her to follow-up on the move and see how it goes.

I’ve heard so many experiences from friends of awful broker experiences and only read about positive experiences online. Had it only been the building broker I would have had a negative experience to add to the pile. Thanks to Bari, I had the best experience finding this apartment. It was so clear that Bari only cared about getting me into an apartment I would like.

Bari was absolutely incredible. I found a listing of hers through craigslist and inquired about it; she responded almost immediately. Although that specific listing rented quickly (probably because Bari is so great), she helped my roommate and me find similar apartments based on what I had seen from that listing.
The apartment we chose she instinctively knew we would love- and we did! It had everything we were looking for and more. We viewed the apartment on Monday night, signed leases Thursday and were able to move in that Saturday. The quick turn-over and speedy follow up work was amazing for my roommate and myself who were commuting into NYC for work before that.
This was my first time as a renter and Bari was incredibly helpful and informative throughout the entire process - she even gave us some fantastic ideas for decorating inside the apartment.
She knows what she's doing, listens to your needs, is extremely on top of things. I am 100% happy with my apartment and how much Bari helped my roommate and me through the entire process.

Bari was amazing to work with. She did her homework up front and we saw 7 apartments in a couple hours. The places she found were exactly what we were looking for.

Although last minute circumstances led me into keeping my current place, I will be using Bari again next year.

Thanks Bari!

Bari's knowledge of the downtown area, personal experience as a tenant, understanding of my search criteria, and honest advice all contributed to a stress-free and successful first-time apartment search in Manhattan.

Bari accommodated my busy work schedule, and organized a weekend day of apartment tours. Bari's extensive research and communication before our tours resulted in a great selection of apartments that fit exactly what I was looking for.

I would definitely recommend Bari--especially if you are a first-time renter in NYC!

Bari is the most helpful, professional, hardworking broker I have ever worked with. She spent countless weekends making sure my husband and I found the perfect apartment...and we did! She was thorough, insightful, not pushy, patient and overall, a true professional. I would recommend her to anyone needing to move and I would use her again for my next move. She recently helped my parents move to their dream apartment too! Use her...You will not regret it!

Bari went above and beyond for us in our search for a new place. We started out fairly broad, unable to decide between Manhattan & Brooklyn. She helped us hone our search and we found the place best suited to our needs. We are so happy in our new pad in a fab hood.

Bari was a very professional and knowledgeable agent. My fiancé and I were looking for our starter home and we could not have found a better place without the help of Bari. She made us feel comfortable and at ease with the whole process. If you have gone through that process before you know how difficult it can be. She is the person to seek if you are looking to rent in NYC.

Bari is a phenomenal agent, and a consummate professional. She is thorough, committed to her clients, and honest. Throughout our search, Bari never stopped scouring the listings to find the perfect home, always followed-up with us, and was careful not to push us too hard. It felt like her top priority was our happiness in finding a new home, and not simply making another sale for herself. We strongly recommend Bari to family and friends, and will return to her if ever we need to move again!
