Finding an apartment in NYC is very stressful and Cecil did not make it any easier. He did not offer any expertise, help or comfort in the process. He provided us with incorrect information on multiple occasions and tried to act like a "middle man" instead of being the broker WE hired. After initially cornering us into showing the apartment we ended up leasing (2 other agents simultaneously wanted to show us the same apartment), we were forced to work with him, which was anything but pleasurable. While I cannot say that he was "sleazy" in the way other brokers i've worked with have been in the past, he was incompetent at best and unwilling to work for us. The amount of money we paid him and the minimal work received pains me greatly. He was pessimistic and occasionally rude giving the most feeble responses to simple questions. Although we did get the apartment we wanted, he in no way helped us in answering any of our outstanding questions or negotiations with the management company. I am not saying Bond or its other agents should be avoided, but Cecil certainly should. You are better off doing it yourself.

I rented an apartment from this agent.

I have never received a review like this. I'm so stunned.
I had no idea you felt so strongly this way.

Please realize that dealing with 3 separate tenants and essentially 6 guarantors almost *guarantees* a degree of miscommunication.

I worked SO very hard on this and for you Ilana.
This is indeed a major blow to me and yes, again A *FIRST* review of it's kind.

Much of what you feel is simply unavoidable, again as a result of dealing/handling MULTIPLE individuals.. 60 documents total

Cecil helped find me and my girlfriend the best apartment, in the best location for the absolute cheapest rent. He helped us deal with a really tough landlord-- and got us into by far the best apartment I've lived in, in NYC. He's a total professional and earned every dollar we paid him. Other brokers are brutal, don't even waste your time. Cecil is the man.

You want to have Cecil as your broker. I entered the rental market thinking I could do this on my own and did not need to use a broker. Cecil proved me wrong. The knowledge he has about the rental market, inside connections with various buildings, and his creativity with rent negotiations made it completely worth it. Most importantly, he attentively listens to what you're looking for and doesn't push you toward what works for him. He exceeded my expectations in every apartment he showed me. The next time I am in the rental market again, I will be calling Cecil.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Though it didn't work this time as time limitation and our finance
situation, Cecil has been trying soooooo hard to make up our expectation. Cecil was never pushy, always standing my side to figure out what the best for me. Believe me I have listed agents in my contacts, and Cecil is THE BEST. Such a trustful person nothing like push you to sign and get cash. I will definitely come back to Cecil next year with better finance situation.
