Fed up with unprofessional brokers in NYC, I got in touch with Bilel at Bond. He has a great understanding of the market and did not waste my time by taking me to apartments that did not fit my expectations.

We found my apartment at an open house. More than 15 applications were submitted for the apartment the same day, but Bilel worked late that night to put together my application in a way that appealed to the management company. I am confident I would not have gotten the apartment on my own or with a run of the mill broker.

Bilel proved to be very professional, honest and hard working during my search. What impressed me the most was that he continued to work for me after he made his commission. I was on the west coast and needed information on the dimensions of the apartment, the lighting and closet situation, etc. Bilel went out of his way to contact the management company and get me the information I needed. He even offered to go to the apartment and take the measurements himself.

I would recommend Bilel to anyone looking for an apartment in NYC.

I highly recommend Bellmarc and especially my broker, Bilel Kaaniche.
My past experiences looking for apartments in NYC have been extremely stressful and time consuming. But this time, Bilel found me exactly the apartment I was looking for within my price range on the very same day that we met to discuss open listings. He listened to my criteria and didn't waste my time showing me places that I wouldn't like or that were out of my price range. Also, he was extremely supportive throughout the application process and helped make it a seamless and stress-free experience. Thanks to Bilel, I love my new apartment, the location it's in and at a price I can afford. Strongly recommend this company for its listings and this broker for finding the apartment you want!

I believe Mr. Kaaniche is a victim of the awful habits that the NYC Broker's community has fallen into. Let me be clear: Bilel is not a bad person, but he is not a good broker.

I have gone through the rental process in NYC half a dozen times and I know what questions to ask. Bilel seemed disinterested in answering any of them or finding out the answer if he did not know (e.g. 'who is the management company for the property', 'what is the security deposit', 'is there laundry in the building'). These are standard questions that every potential renter should ask... He claims he had never heard any of them and seemed shocked that I was asking.

He also had no interest in negotiating lease terms on my behalf until I fought with him to do so, even though the agreement was that I would be paying him 15%. This is unacceptable; his job is to represent his client, not the landlord. He forgot this; therefore I walked away and he lost 15% commission.

Abridged version: decent guy, bad broker

Advice from one Professional Services pro to another: Remember who your client is and always help them. You can't be cavalier and expect a 15% commission.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Bilel Kaaniche Responded:
It s unfortunate that your perception to the present market and the requirements of this landlord are not very realistic. I had prepared you a head of time that this landlord was difficult and looking for over qualified tenants and i gave you his info.Your credit score was not as good as you stated. Also you have a new job and no pay stubs and i got you approved within 24 hours with only 1 extra month security which is totally fair. I believe you don't really need to move and you lost agood deal

Bond Agency was the worst. Their business model stinks. They gave me the impression we had appts to view the apartments I had specifically inquired about. I got to their office, and they had no appointments set up. Will NEVER use or view a listing of theirs again. Complete waste of time.

Bilel Kaaniche Responded:
Seriously. I was helping another agent . You were not my client . You were looking for 2 bedroom for October with 80 pounds dog .It was too early to show and i had no listings for October . I was professional and i tried to show you 2 options but i could not have access on Saturday and i explained that we had only 2 landlords in our listings who takes huge pets
I did not waste your time.

Bilel took his time to make sure that I had the home I wanted as well as needed. By his being empathetic to my needs, I felt as if we had connected, building a working relationship I could trust. I could see myself actually living in a community such as this. It has exactly what I want and that is whatever I need, in walking distance.

The man is the worst. I inquired about an apartment that was shown ON a picture. He made me go into his office and signed a contract. I had to rushed from work to meet WITH HIM. Instead of taking me to the apartment i inquired about, he, instead took me to Harlem. WASTED MY TIME. I ENDED UP IN MIDDLE OF HARLEM ON A RAINY DAY, TRYING TO FIGURE HOW TO GET HOME.

Bilel Kaaniche Responded:
It s not a contract .It s an agreement and NY state disclosure form .You were not qualified for the unit that you contacted me about . You were already living in Harlem .
