It was a pleasure working with Mr. Shahid. He is very timely, professional, courteous, respectful and reliable. He responds to emails, texts and phone calls almost immediately. I appreciate that he goes above and beyond for serious clients. For example, he picked me up from my job (I'm a teacher), drove me to the management office to sign my lease, and then drove me back to work! I cannot begin to express my gratitude for Mr. Shahid's kindness and flexibility!

Hakeem put us in a lovely apartment after we'd just about given up on moving this year. He's very quick to respond, even over the weekend; he's no-nonsense over email but warm in person. He helped us put in the application immediately, and while there was some delay on the management side in reviewing it, Hakeem made sure to keep us appraised and reassured throughout the process right up until the ultimate signing. Definitely a good experience.

Having just moved to NYC and being a first time renter, Hakeem couldn't have been more helpful to my wife and I. He made the time to show the apartment around our work hours and finalized the signing of the lease promptly and without any problems. He was knowledgeable about the area we moved into and gave us lots of confidence that we were making the right decision. Having now moved in, we couldn't be happier. Any small teething problems we've since had, Hakeem has made himself more than available to help out and responds to our enquiries straight away. We're more than happy to recommend Hakeem for finding your future apartment.

As a first time renter, Hakeem made the experience a total breeze - so friendly and easy to work with. He immediately responded to my inquiry and continually followed up with me via text and email throughout the entire application process. In less than 48 hours after viewing the space, I was signing a lease! Highly recommend! I found an amazing apartment in a location I did not think I would be able to afford.

Hakeem is by far the best realtor I have worked with. He is very responsive and straightforward. He answered inquiries at all times of day and followed up on all my questions. Had great relationships with the management company and helped me make sure that the apartment I was renting met all of my requirements. I would recommend him to anyone looking in the area.

Hakeem was great to work with! By far the best broker i've worked with in NYC thus far. He had the best apartments and best prices also. Very trustworthy and responded to my calls promptly.

Working with Hakeem was an absolute pleasure! He was prompt, responsive, and trustworthy. I've been living in New York/Brooklyn and this was my first broker experience that I actually enjoyed. I HIGHLY recommend!

Very calm and relaxed guy who was easy to work with, and spelled everything out for us neatly when we had questions & wanted to see places. I would highly recommend using him in all your future apartment hunts.

My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Hakeem. He was very courteous, professional and punctual for our meetings. He was very responsive to all of our emails and made the application process go very smoothly. He has a good relationship with the owner of the apartment we're moving into and they both made us feel very comfortable with the transition. I would highly recommend Hakeem to other prospective movers.

Hakeem was quick about things, he was honest. And he knew the place well enough to answer questions. Recommended. There's a lot of shady brokers out there. He's not one of them. Great experience.

Hakeem is by far the best broker I have ever come across in New York City. Having moved at least seven times, I have had my fair share of awful brokers who don't listen to a word you say and try to convince you to get a crappy apartment in a crappy neighborhood for way too much money. I have now found two apartments through Hakeem in the past three years and as long as he is around, I don't plan on using anyone else ever again! Hakeem clearly has a good relationship with all the owners he represents and this shows in the quality of apartments he offers. I have never been less stressed when apartment hunting than when I had Hakeem as my broker. I HIGHLY recommend him!

This is the second apartment I've found through Hakeem. If and when I move again, I'll use him again. He always responded very quickly and he got me a great deal again. Work with him. You'll see.

Hakeem was trustworthy, punctual, and helpful. We fought for one apartment with a particularly complicated application process, (a middle-income housing development) and Hakeem was up front about our chances, while also going above and beyond to make sure we were in the running. We took a risk entrusting him with a lot of very sensitive information for that application. We didn't get the apartment, but we got all of our paperwork back- it's been 6 months without any issues. I would absolutely recommend him to help find your next apartment.

Hakeem is great! Knowledgeable, always quick to respond, and incredibly helpful in guiding me through the whole process. Definitely felt more comfortable working with an independent agent like Hakeem vs one from a large and sketchy company. Highly recommended.

Hakeem was very professional and patient with me despite all my apartment criteria. He responded very quickly to all of my emails at all hours of the day. He was early for meetings. He worked with the landlord to make sure I got the apartment I really wanted. I would definitely recommend him!

Hakeem is by far the best broker I have ever interacted with! His listing was clear and thorough, upon sending him a message he immediately got back to me with even more information before scheduling a viewing. I was able to come prepared for the tour later that evening with all the paperwork necessary to fill out the application. I heard back from him two days later letting me know I got the apartment and we met again to sign the lease 3 days after that. It's clear he has a good relationship with the landlord and only brokers for people he trusts. If you are looking for a reliable broker who will not waste your time, this is your man!
