I don't know about any of the other reviews, but I worked with Crystal Hayes and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional and knowledgeable broker.
I recently relocated from Chicago and was looking to move into a nice studio in NY as soon as possible. After our initial consultation, Crystal showed me a range of apartments all within my budget, in a variety of locations downtown, and was able to accommodate my busy working schedule. I never felt rushed to make up my mind.
Crystal's approach was great because 1) she set up a ton of appointments for apartments that fit my wish list based on our initial consultation, 2) she always asked for my feedback on what I liked and didn't like from each of the apartments we saw, and kept that in mind when deciding what apartments to show me next, and 3) answered any and all questions I had about the different NYC neighborhoods, what my commute would be like to work from a particular apartment, etc. As a first-timer to NY, I felt much more educated about the real estate market after looking at apartments with Crystal.
Luckily I was able to find my perfect apartment (a spacious studio in Greenwich Village with a doorman, high ceilings, a terrace with a view, and a short commute to work) within a week of my initial phone consultation. Crystal was extremely accommodating, super nice and friendly to work with, and I always felt like she had my best interest in mind.
All in all, I'm very happy with my experience with Crystal and I would recommend anyone frustrated with their apartment hunt to give her a call!
Me and my roommate Alicia were fortunate enough to get places in the hands of Crystal Hayes. We just moved from Sweden to Study at Newschool in New York and thought that it would be a nightmare to find an apartment especially us being international and students and having a fairly low budget.
When we first met Crystal we described our dream apartment and location etc. She immediately responded " I promise to find you your perfect apartment", and she sure did! After looking at about 4 apartments the last one was the perfect one for us and we immediately decided on it!
Crystal was amazing to work with! So helpful and funny and she really picked up on our taste and what we were looking for! I can really recommend her! She fought for our apartment and was so determined to find us the perfect one!
We will for sure use Crystal again and we recommend anyone who is looking to work with someone professional to do the same!!

I contacted Crystal Hayes from Bond after seeing an apartment she posted on http://nakedapartments.c…
Crystal responded within a half an hour of my first inquiry regarding the apartment. She was very efficient in contacting the landlord of the building to make sure my roommate and I could rent the apartment - as we are both students and first-time renters. We were able to visit the apartment that day, and Crystal helped to get things turned over very quickly for our approval. Any question or concern we had was immediately addressed and answered. The pictures she posted of the apartment and the price were both completely accurate...which is not always the case with some brokers. I highly recommend working with her!

I don't know how Bond gets bad reviews, y'all must not have worked with Crystal Hayes.
My girlfriend and I were looking for our first apartment together, kind of a big deal! I must say, we were fortunate enough to have Crystal Hayes from Bond NY be our broker. We started our search working with several brokers from listings on websites ranging from Craigslist to NakedApartments. Our experiences with other brokers weren't horrible but with Crystal it was fantastic. Once we met Crystal we worked exclusively with her. We provided a range we are willing to spend and the neighborhood we wanted to be in (SOHO). Crystal found multiple places around the area we wanted and was very flexible to show us the apts when we had time, often late afternoon, weekends, and through 4th of July. Once we found our perfect place in the heart of SOHO, Crystal was very diligent on sending the application and following up with us and the landlord through the lease signing. We found a terrific apt and were very lucky to work with Crystal during the process. Douglas Wagner, her manager was also very flexible and great to work with. Thanks Crystal and Bond NY.

I want to share here my experience working with the incomparable Crystal Hayes to find and be approved to rent my current apartment. Crystal listened to what I wanted and worked from there, instantly, which really wowed me. As soon as I told her what I was looking for, I knew she heard me and that we were on the same page - she delivered, and when she showed me a place that I loved at a price that fit the bill, it was in hot demand, and she went straight to work preparing the strongest possible application for me, without which I never would have been able to get the apartment. Most impressive, Crystal was in touch every day, and I know that her commitment was for the reason that she takes pride in delivering great results to her clients. I can''t recommend her as a renter''s agent enough. She is absolutely excellent. I love where I am living and I wouldn''t be here without her!
