Emilio responded quickly to my email inquiry. He took the time to read my email, suggesting another option in addition to the apartment I contacted him about. Showed me 2 apts. Saturday, neither was right fit but he said it was helpful in determining what I'm looking for. He's been in the business for years and it shows. Great listener, professional and knowledgable.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Emilio was great, responded quickly to my request and answered any and all questions I had along the way. He showed us an amazing apartment and worked diligently to help us get it. My roommate and I are very excited about our new apartment (so I hope I won't need Emilio again in the near future) but if we do, we'll certainly be contacting him again.

Emilio was a great broker to work with. He was always available to take my call and was quick to respond. He went above and beyond to help us get the apartment.

Emilio is an honest, punctual, easygoing, hardworking broker. Full disclosure --- he only showed us 1 apartment --- but that was more a reflection of our budget and the inventory available where we were looking. Throughout the whole process of setting up the viewing, meeting up and going through the apartment, answering all of our questions afterward, negotiations with the landlord, and the actual signing of the lease, Emilio was a pleasure to work with. In our apartment search, we looked at 23 apartments in with over 10 brokers, and I've gotta say, Emilio's easygoing attitude and total transparency put them all to shame. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a place in NYC.

Emilio is totally free of the broker-itis syndrome that seems to run rampant in NYC. NOt only was he always early to every appointment we had with him, he was friendly and never pushy. What I like about Emilio most is that he gives you things straight up.. never oversells a place or tries to spin a listing into something that it's not!

Bottom line is that Emilio is the quintessential un-broker: punctual, courteous, genuine & trustworthy. If you've looked for an apartment with your typical NYC broker before then you know how much of a rarity this is!

Emilio was a great broker to work with for a number of reasons:

1) he was on time, even early, to show us the apartment
2) he recommended several other apartments worth looking at to help minimize our search
3) he wasn't pushy or tried to oversell the apartment we ended up taking, even suggesting we think about it over the night.


Emilio greatly minimized the stress of finding an apartment in the city and was kind and thoughtful to all of our needs and periodically checked-in with us throughout the leasing process. He's a great broker and I would recommend working with him for your apartment search.
