Bobby was quiet simply the best broker I have ever dealt with (I would say one of the coolest and most down to Earth human being's I've ever met as well). He was super fast with his response time, extremely polite, never pushy, and was able to secure me the apartment of my dreams. Honestly, for those of you who are reading this stop now and CALL BOBBY! He will get you what you want. There really is nothing more I can add. He simply is the best!

I reached out to Bobby after reading his reviews and am so happy I did. He showed me several apartments in various areas, and was fun and professional. Within 8 days of moving to NYC I had a lease signed, no doubt thanks to Bobby. Totally happy.

Bobby was a refreshing change from the 3 other brokers that I wasted time with before I met him. He was incredibly upfront, prompt and efficient. He understood my needs quickly, and didn't waste time in setting up viewings to fit my schedule.

Bobby is the first person I'll call when I need the services of a broker again. I highly recommend him, he's wonderful.

I contacted Bobby through naked apartment and two days later I signed a lease for exactly what I was looking for!
Not only is Bobby good at what he does, he is also a very friendly person! It was a pleasure to do business with him!
I recommend him strongly!

Update: Had to move out of my apartment unexpectedly and only had a few weeks to get a place. Called Bobby since he helped me the last time. He not only responded quickly, but he remembered my requirements from the year before. He lined up places quickly and got me a good place at a good price. Once again, he didn’t push me into something that wouldn’t work, he was patient (saw about 15 places), and helped through the process. Always a pleasure to work with someone that is professional, nice, and delivers.


Original review: Bobby was easily the best broker I’ve worked with. I was looking for a 1br in Midtown West with specific dimensions and price. I knew it was going to be difficult to find, but not impossible. He never pushed me to the UES like so many other brokers tried to. He listened to what I was looking for. He did not show me places that didn’t match my criteria and didn’t waste my time. He communicated constantly about what was available and didn’t lie to me or pull any bait-and-switch. He was always up front and honest.

I didn’t have strict deadline to move out. So many brokers would not speak to me even though I was ready to move. They told me to contact them 2-3 weeks before I absolutely had to move in an apparent effort to put me in a situation where I had to take what was available. Bobby didn’t do that. He started the search immediately and accepted I was ready even without a definite deadline. He didn’t push me into something I wouldn’t have liked. He was able to find something that worked for me.

When it came to the application and lease signing, he was very helpful. He answered all of my questions quickly and made the process very easy. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment.

Bobby was really helpful and not pushy at all. My only comment was that he only had apartments in a very limited area (Soho).

Hi there,

We are writing to express our complete satisfaction with Bobby Tolliver as a realtor. Throughout the entire process, Bobby was professional, knowledgeable, and motivated. His positive attitude on finding THE best apartment was contagious.

Initially we were uncertain of the neighborhood, but Bobby diligently checked multiple areas to verify that the location met our goals within a very short timeframe. Consequently, within 2 days of visiting apartments, we signed for exactly what we wanted.

Thank you Bobby.

All the best.

I've been meaning to write Bobby a review for awhile...I met a lot of brokers during my apartment search and he was by far the best. My favorite Bobby story was when we looked at an apartment in a high-demand neighborhood. The apartment was so sought-after that we were afraid someone had already taken it, even though it had only been on the market for maybe an hour. So I filled out the application and Bobby took a photo of it with his smartphone and emailed it directly to the owner (because of his connections he happened to know the owner). I've never met a broker with so much determination and dedication!

Bobby was great to work with, he gave honest advice and was extremely reliable. He took the time to show us many apartments, upon our request. In general he is extremely understanding and accommodating to one's needs.

Bobby found me an incredible apartment at a great price and he helped navigate me through the complex and lengthy co-op application process to a successful approval. I'm relocating from California and not only did he use my time in the city efficiently, he also communicated well with me long-distance. I am incredibly grateful for his time and skill and I highly recommend him as a broker.

Bobby has been great to work with. He organized an impeccably-timed viewing session for me over the course of one afternoon during which he showed me several apartments, and at each stop he carefully listened to my feedback and adjusted the rest of our viewings accordingly. He prepped me in advance with what materials I would need for the application process so we could move quickly, and when the time came to submit and process the application and complete the lease signing he was responsive and completely reliable. Bobby also checked in with me after the lease signing was completed to make sure I got what I needed. He is thoughtful and professional, and he has my highest recommendation.

In looking for a 2 bedroom, my roommate and I lucked out by getting connected to an owner looking privately, so we did not end up renting an apartment that Bobby showed us. However, if it weren't for that connection, we certainly would have rented one of the units Bobby showed us. He showed us several, and ALL of them were within our price range and of the sort of quality that clearly exceeded the price range. His ability to research and find us excellent opportunities was phenomenal. We dealt with other brokers as well, some of whom were sharks; they were pushy, pressuring, and tried to talk us into situations that clearly did not meet our needs fiscally and in terms of comfort. Bobby did nothing of the sort -- we told him what our requirements were, what our price range was, where we wanted to be, and he showed us apartments that fit our exact criteria. Quite simply, he was completely honest and understanding at all times, which is an extremely invaluable characteristic in his business, particularly after dealing with other brokers who were solely after their fee, and wanted it fast.
Bobby made what's usually an exhausting and frustrating process a little easier I highly recommend him to help with your apartment search.

Bobby sent me a few apartments within my price range in the neighborhoods I was looking. He was friendly and courteous, not aggressive and did not waste my time. I did not end up moving but will definitely be in touch with him when I do look to move.
