      Bart Grzybowski believes that success in Real Estate is completely dependent upon developing a bond of trust between his clients and himself. To develop this foundation, Bart treats all of his customers with care, loyalty, and respect. In addition, he provides them with the knowledge and experience necessary to make an informed decision about which apartment best suits their needs. Bart has succeeded in numerous past endeavors because of a sense of integrity, a commitment to quality, and a determination to always do better. It is because of this that his clients expect and always receive only the highest levels of service, as is evident by his numerous 5-Star testimonials.

“In the end, what you hope to take away from your Real Estate career is directly proportionate to the amount of effort you are willing to put into it,” Bart explains. To best serve his clients, Bart likes stay prepared by always keeping up-to-date with market trends, developers, new listings, and training seminars. “Most clients don’t realize that the best agents in the business are the ones that do the ground work before they ever meet the client. They are out there previewing new properties, posting great ads, and getting to know landlords and management companies on a personal basis.” By doing this, Bart has developed a functional understanding of how the industry works, allowing him to show his clients the best properties on the market and to lock them up once his clients have made their decision.

Raised in Connecticut, Bart graduated from Villanova with a BA in Psychology, and then moved to Miami to accept a position as a Case Manager working with refugee foster care children. This opportunity provided insight into how essential it is to develop a mutual respect, trust, and rapport with clients that were at a very difficult point in their lives. Bart applies these lessons to his Real Estate career, and helps guide his clients through the hectic and, often times, stressful process of finding an apartment. Later, Bart worked as a Construction Site Supervisor who built, remodeled, and renovated multi-million-dollar homes in Miami. Consequently, he developed an eye for detail and a deep appreciation for quality work. His clients will attest that he never tries to sell them on an apartment he is not sold on himself. Bart is currently a working FORD model, and has shot with top designers such as Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Armani Exchange, and Marc Jacob amongst others.

Bart currently resides in Long Island City, and has traversed most of Manhattan, from Bowling Green to Inwood by foot on one of his 15+-mile marathon training runs. Besides running, Bart loves to travel, considers himself a foodie, and is always open to trying something new: "If I haven't done it yet, it's on my bucket list!”

I worked with brokers prior to Bart, and he was by far the best. I was very stressed with only 3 days to find, sign, and move into an apartment, but meeting Bart was an instant relief. He showed me the perfect apartment, in a great location and under my budget, and it was the day I contacted him. The apartment was signed the next day and Bart even worked it out so I could move into the apartment a day before my lease started. He was very nice, and genuinely had my best interests in mind as a client. Altogether it was a wonderful experience working with Bart, I highly recommend him, especially after going through so many terrible brokers, I was very lucky to find a Broker as sincere as Bart.

I have recently arrived in New York and knew nothing about the city or the local real estate market when I started looking for an apartment and Bart has definitely been extremely efficient in finding the perfect place for me. Passionate about his work and with a valuable knowledge of the city, he managed to identify quickly what would be the best area and type of apartment for me, and didn’t hesitate to put a lot of efforts into finding it. Very hardworking and dedicated, he had the patience to show me several apartments every day during almost a month. I fully trusted him for being so honest about each apartment’s pros and cons and focused on finding the best deal for my budget. In addition to being an extremely professional broker, Bart is also a very nice and friendly person who managed to turn all this process into pleasant moments. I fully recommend him to everyone!

I have worked with many realtors in the past and Bart is definitely one of the best, if not the best.

I found him to be courteous, attentive, and extremely receptive to all my requests. Above all, he is honest!

I had contacted him via Naked apartments to help me find a one bedroom apartment in Astoria. I was on a fast track deadline and at that point, I didn't really have high expectations for an apartment as long as the space was just nice enough and it fit within my budget.

What he ended up finding for me however, completely blew my mind and exceeded my expectations 1000x.

After I described what I was looking for, Bart was immediately on top of the game. I was looking mid-month and knew that inventory was scarce, but he already had two apartments lined up for me to view the next day. All throughout, he was well organized and excellent with his communication.

The day I was supposed to view, I received a text message/call out of the blue from him in the morning stating that I should meet him in the UES to check out a gorgeous gut renovated, one bedroom apartment that was rent stabilized and therefore renting far below market price. I took a chance and learned that things that are too good can really be true!

The application process had me nervous, but Bart handled the whole thing extremely well and kept me up constantly up to date on the latest status.

All in all, even if not in Astoria, I ended up with an amazing apartment in an amazing area for an amazing price. Bart heard all my criteria and was able to improvise for me in a way that I did not expect. As if the service couldn't get better, he also sent me a handwritten thank you card at the end.

If you use him, you definitely won't regret it!

Bart helped my roommate and I find a 2-BR apartment in just two days, and it was the quickest, easiest, most stress-free apartment hunting process ever! I really don't have one negative thing to say about our experience. Bart was great about accommodating our schedules and lining up lots of viewings back-to-back so that our time was most efficiently utilized. He never showed us listings out of our price range/budget. He paid close attention to what we wanted in an apartment and delivered. Bart was very knowledgable about the areas that we were looking in, and you could tell that he did his research about the important little things to consider when selecting an apartment -- proximity to the train, laundry, grocery stores, nightlife, etc. We definitely trusted any of his recommendations. He was a good communicator, too. He was always in touch -- reminding us of that day's agenda, letting us know the status of our application, etc. We never had to worry about him dropping the ball. Bart consistently went the extra mile, like when he came to my work to pick up our application forms. Unlike other brokers I've worked with in the past, I never had to remind him who we were, what we were looking for, etc. It felt like he was personally invested in our search and on our team. We've lived in our new apartment for about two weeks now, and we absolutely love it. It was a great find, and we have Bart to thank. I would strongly recommend Bart for your apartment search!

I contacted Bart concerning an apartment, which unfortunately did not match my intended moving in date. We couldn't arrange something for this apartment, however Bart immediately started helping me and my roommate out. We had pretty specific demands, and were on a tight budget. Additionally, being international students there was some navigating to be done regarding what documents we would need, and being able to get those. However, Bart was very understanding and tried to help us as much as possible. It only took about two weeks for him to find a great place for us, arranging a viewing on the day it came on the market, because it would be such high demand. We signed a lease only two or three days later.
Very happy with his service.

I have dealt with a lot of brokers in the past month and haven’t felt comfortable with any of them until I stumbled upon Bart on naked apartments. Unlike a lot of other brokers, Bart has made my experience pleasurable because of his extensive knowledge of NYC but his honesty was the key trait that he acquires unlike the other brokers I have experienced. You can tell that he isn’t just trying to sell any apartment to a client but he wants the client to have the best option from what they can afford. I had a very strict deadline to lease a new apartment, and he showed me 15 different apartments in one week. My mother loved him as a person not only as a broker. I would definitely recommend Bart to anyone who is looking for a dedicated broker to find the perfect apartment for you.

I used Bart as my broker to find a Studio apartment in Manhattan. In a very competitive, fast-paced NYC rental market, Bart was patient, professional, and receptive in understanding my requirements (budget, location, etc.). He was able to provide advice and guidance without making me feel pressured to make a hasty decision on an apartment I wasn't hot on and without making me feel like I needed to change my requirements in order to find a suitable place. He was proactive in researching and scheduling viewings on two separate dates, and after viewing upwards of 10 units, I felt like he had provided me a good feel of the apartments in my desired location as well as a few options that could work for me. He helped me locate and sign a lease on a nice studio apartment in the East 30s that not only met my requirements but was a few hundred dollars under my budget as well! There's some good value out there and I am confident Bart will put in the effort to help you find it. Whereas other agents may be in the business of sales, Bart is in the business of relationships. After I settled into my apartment, he came by to check-in and brought a housewarming gift. I definitely recommend Bart as someone who will be patient with you, who will be responsive to your calls, emails, and text messages, and who can help you assess your options and feel good about your apartment selection.

Bart not only found me an apartment within a week of searching, but took the initiative and planned an entire day to view 4 different units, one of which I ended up renting. He is a very organized, personable, and honest agent who I definitely recommend to anyone interested to find the perfect apartment that fits your needs in the locations you request.

I started writing about my experience with Bart, but realized that nobody will read pages and pages of raves. This is the short version of what happened. The fourth apartment Bart showed us was exactly what we wanted. We didn't want to take it because we felt it was so fast. What we learned is that, because of the preliminary work done by Bart, he found the perfect place for us. I kept telling Bart that I wanted a place that had FIOS, and he spent some much time trying to find an apartment that had FIOS. Overtime we went to an apartment, he would call Verizon and see if FIOS would be in the building any time soon. He went so far past our expectations. We are looking at renting for a year, then buying someplace. When we do, we are definitely going to use Bart. I don't think there is better praise I can give him than I would use him again.

I recently used Bart as my broker and was 100% satisfied with the entire process. He is attentive, courteous and extremely helpful. I knew exactly what I wanted, and he was able to narrow down my search to a handful of places, all of which I could have seen myself live in. I would recommend Bart to my close friends and family.

Being short on time and experience I wasn't sure what I should be doing during my first renting experience. Once I got in touch with Bart within 24 hours I had 8 places to look at and to choose from. By telling Bart what my wants and needs where he quickly found places that fit me personally.
He works quickly and efficiently and the best part is his honesty. In a business where you need to know the truth Bart is there giving you his honest input to help you make the right choice. I would recommend him to anyone.

Having had terrible luck with my first two brokers, I feel very lucky to have stumbled upon Bart at an open house. My husband and I were very specific on what we wanted. We were looking for a one bedroom pied-a-tier, on the Upper West Side, near Riverside Park, that allowed three dogs. No easy task. Not only was Bart eager to take on the challenge, he did so with efficiency, patience and determination. I can't say enough about the work he put into our search and his level of professionalism and knowledge during the entire process. Not once did I ever feel pressured to hurry up and sign a lease. Finding the right apartment that was the right fit for my husband and I was the ultimate goal for Bart, no matter if it took looking at 25+ apartments.

Apartment hunting in NYC is challenging. I feel fortunate to have found Bart to help me navigate the crazy NYC rental market. He's a true professional and on top of that, a really nice guy that really likes his job. Especially important when you'll be spending many exhausting hours together schlepping from one apartment to the next. So, if you're going the broker route, give Bart a call. You won't be disappointed.

p.s. I'm writing this review from my great one bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side, near Riverside Park, with my three dogs at my side. Thanks Bart!!

Bart helped me find a great apartment on the Upper West Side. He was incredibly hard-working and responsive to my budget and parameters. He followed up relentlessly with landlords and other brokers to make sure we stayed on top of applications and kept moving forward. Plus he is a nice, easygoing guy. I would definitely recommend working with him!

Bart is the best broker I've worked with in Manhattan. He was very much on top of our search from the beginning. He stayed well within our price range and our location requests and was fair and honest in his assessment of the apartments we toured. If he thought we could do better than a place we were touring he would tell us. I would definitely recommend using Bart if you want to make finding an apartment as painless as possible.

Bart is an amazing broker. He is efficient, trustworthy, and he is a hard worker. Bart had an apt for us to look at every day until we found the perfect apt. He is very passionate about his job and his clients. He will not let you down, and he will help you find your dream apartment.

My friend and I really enjoyed working with Bart. He showed us more than 8 great apartments in one day that fit our budget and met our criteria. Not only did we get a great workout that day, we also found our new home. Bart was extremely attentive throughout the process and made us feel like he had our best interests in mind. He is just a really thoughtful, down-to-earth, considerate guy. So if you’re smart and don’t want to be homeless, you’ll work with him.

My daughter needed to find a new apartment in NYC and move in one week. Bart showed us 7 apartments in one day. He found exactly what we were looking for. He was patient and did a great job.
After she had moved in he followed up to be sure that all went well and that she was happy. I would use Bart as my agent again.
