Hakeem did an outstanding job handling the rental of our existing apartment, allowing us to break our lease and the subsequent rental of our next apartment. He presented himself in a professional calm manner, and was knowledgeable and considerate of our needs. Thanks for your hard work, dedication and guidance through this transition! I recommend him highly to anyone. Good job and thanks Hakeem!! Mr. & Mrs. Miller

Working with Hakeem was absolutely amazing. He helped us to move last minute in a quick and efficient way. He's was extremely personable, easy to work with and he devoted his time to our needs. You can tell he has a lot of experience in this field because he handled our situation (which I thought would be difficult due to credit issues) with ease. I'd definitely refer all my friends and family to him! -M. Beber

Classic bait and switch NYC rental broker. Posts "in contract" rental listings online and when you contact him regarding the listing he replies with this classic scripted response, "They took in an application they're reviewing. When are you free to see some apartments?"

Mind you, my initial inquiry email sent MINUTES AFTER broker listed the unit online TODAY (5/15/2015). His response - "I'm not the only agent/broker with access to this apartment. Every agent in the city has the same access. At that price point an apartment that cheap that would receive over 30 applications as soon as it was listed."

In the end, don't waste your time. He is a slow broker. The listings he posts online are more then likely "in contract" by other brokers.

P.S. As of 5/15/2015 he still has the listing active online.

Hakeem Otiti Responded:
Classic Scorned Renter. I advised this gentleman that the apartment was priced to rent quickly. He was dragging his feet to disclose information pertinent to securing the apartment, a more serious renter beat him to the punch and now he feels slighted. In your next search move more expeditiously. I advised "Craig" there's over 27,000 licensed agents/brokers in NYC with access to these listings. The $1,500 and under rental market moves very quickly, he moved very slow.

P.S. Defamation.

I appreciate your help getting me settled and the Hakeems' Pick Of The Day emails were actually instrumental when I was looking. I will spread your name to fellow friends in need of apartments in Manhattan. -Evan

Hakeem has been exceptional! He traveled across town twice in one day to meet me and then across town again to give me my keys! He was always professional and efficient. He moved quickly and only showed options that met our situational needs. I thank him for his follow up. I would use Hakeem again hands-down! -Michelle F.

I had a wonderful experience working with Hakeem. He was very patient, accommodating, knowledgeable, professional and patient with my hectic schedule and changing interests. Hakeem answered all of my questions, provided expert advice and never pressured me ...which was a welcomed surprise! He made a typically stressful moving experience a lot easier and even a little fun. I trust him, have already recommended him to my friends and will refer anyone who asks. I fear as though I may be sounding like a sycophant, nor am I being paid to say this, but truly, he is AWESOME! -Jeremy B.

Where do I begin? Hakeem reached out to me in a quick manner. He asked me what I was looking for, and he waited no time to send me exactly what I envisioned. It wasn't easy bc I was on the lower end of the budget, but wanted a gorgeous apartment. That didn't turn him away! We went on a few apartment hunts, and on our 3rd hunt, i found my dream home. As an NYC renter, it's very hard to find exactly what you're looking for, but bc he was such a great broker, he really thought outside the box and sent me listings that I would normally brush aside. One of them ended up being my dream place! THANK YOU HAKEEM- for treating me like a VIP client. I would recommend anyone to work with you!!

I met with several brokers during my apartment search in NYC (greedy, vain, impolite, etc.), but Hakeem was without a doubt the most genuine, patient, and sincere of them all. Hakeem ultimately showed me a beautiful "studio" listing in the Meatpacking district, and highlighted all of the main attributes of the area, the building, and the apartment itself. Given the small sizes of most studios in the city, he was even kind enough to help me draw out a few potential furniture layouts. I currently reside in this apartment, and Hakeem kindly continues to check in with me on occasion to see how things are going - an unnecessary gesture, but a true demonstration of his professionalism and focus on maintaining client relationships. With that said, if I choose to relocate upon my lease expiration, Hakeem will hands-down be my first call. Thank you for all of your help through the move-in process, Hakeem - it was a true pleasure!
