TORAL IVAN A

(23)

I am a people person and I love to help others realize their dream of living in NYC.  Although exciting, life tends to be fast paced in NYC and with so many choices to deal with this could become overwhelming at times.  As a lifetime resident of New York City i have the experience to help you find the right property to call home.  I have many years of rental experience and can reach out to almost every rental listing in NYC.

Worst broker I've worked with.
When I first contacted Ivan, he was pleasant and gave me info about the apartment. It was all downhill from there.
During our initial call, he told me to call back the following day to schedule a viewing and get an address. The next day he didn't answer my calls or texts until less than 2 hours before the appointment time we discussed. I had to find a new number online in order for him to answer me, not the number I originally called.
We arranged to meet that evening and he told me an address that he claimed was for the apartment, but when I got there, it turned out to be a gas station. I called and texted every number I could find online linked to his name and he did not respond to anything.
I waited for an hour and he did not show up or respond.
I can not recommend enough that you do not use this guy. He wasted my time.

Never responded to my inquiry.
Ivan Toral Responded:
i responded by asking you to call me so i can ask you qualifying questions to determine you qualify and i dont waste your time, but you didnt call me and instead sent me an email asking me the address of the apartment you wanted to see, totally ignoring what I asked.

"I am a people person and I love to help others realize their dream of living in NYC" Ivan does NOT stay true to what he wrote in his bio. He does not care if he can help you or not. I was really depending on Ivan to get us a place. He back down from helping us, because I was so eager into getting this place, I would call the apartment actual office to get ahead or little more info that Ivan wouldn't provide. He got upset and withdrew from helping us. He saw it as me being sneaky. When in reality I did it out of innocent to fasten the process. But I do have someone looking into this for me.

Ivan Toral Responded:
in my defense i try to help everyone, but unfortunatley not everyone qualifies to rent. Financial history and income play a big role in the approval process, in the case of Anna she simply didn't qualify for the apartment she pursued and i cant go around the owner, if the owner says no to an applicant it is a no. Sorry but u cant blame me if the owner denied you.

where do I start? It seems like the agent is not interested in renting out anything. He responded my inquiry with his associate Daniela's phone number. I called her to schedule an appointment and she said she was gonna call and confirm the address. She didn't. I called her to confirm and got the address. We were stuck in the train and 15 minutes late. She didn't left any text messages or voicemail. Gone! We tried to reach out to her a couple times and she texted said she had to pick up her daughter from day care. So she basically just wanted to do a 3 minutes walk through and called it? About the apartment, the listing says it's at prospect park south, nope, it's in the heart of east flat bush. What an UNSCRUPULOUS realtor

Ivan Toral Responded:
i am sorry you feel this way, i spoke with my agant and she tells me you had a 6:30pm appointment and you called at 7pm to let her know your running late. She has a daughter and cannot be late to pick her up from daycare. Now, if you would like i can show it to you, but you must be on time because i have appointments at different locations every 30 minutes and i cant be late.

I called to find out information about an available apartment. I didn't have to say a word. This man was extremely nasty the way he answered the phone and told me about viewing times of this apartment. His negativity repelled me from wanting anything to do with this apartment.

Lists fake apartments and then tries to offer you an alternative

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Ivan Toral Responded:
Manhattan is very fast paced and listings move very quickly, i found you a comparable listing in the same area at a better price and you chose to give me a poor review without even checking it out, when your serious about looking for an apartment please contact me so i can take you around and show you the same apartments every other brokerage house has. I take pride in what i do and work very hard to make people happy and keep them happy.
thanx for making this job harder, ivan

Ivan was very helpful. The only reason we did not purchase an apartment for him is because we started looking for a place too early.

I recommend to avoid using Ivan's services.

Ivan was almost one hour late to our initial appointment, but that's probably not a rare occurrence in real estate. Four weeks later, I was 15 minutes late to our second appointment, and he sent me to view the unit on my own. The door was unlocked and I had to beg a random tenant to let me into the building.

I liked the apartment and on 11/20 I put in an application at his office (CitiWIDE Resource Realty) for a $100 fee. I only had $90 with me, and he was kind enough to give me a discount. He promised to email me a receipt, but he never did.

That was not money well spent, unfortunately. Despite his claim that I would receive an answer in 24-48 hours, he was consistently unable to provide any feedback about my application. After 7 days and numerous attempts to contact him and receive an answer, on our last phone conversation he mentioned again that he would get back to me soon. I never heard a single comment about my application back from him.

On 12/01 a hard inquiry showed up on my credit history in relation to the application I had filed with Ivan on 11/20. By that time I was already settled into my new place that I found directly through a private landlord at the end of the month.

I find it amusing that I initially told Ivan about my previous broker horror stories and he sympathized with me.

Note: there was no point asking Ivan for how long the apartment had been on the market. The answer was always "2 weeks", regardless of whether 4 additional weeks had passed since I first viewed the same unit and asked the same question.

Note to self: next time I apply for an apartment through a broker I will authorize a hard credit pull only if executed within 48 hours.

Thought Ivan was unprofessional. I Waited 30 min for Ivan to show up to show me an apartment. I contacted him after waiting 15 min and he did not answer his phone. Instead of returning my call he responded with a text saying he left and was waiting for me. Only to find out that he saw me waiting in my car and he didn't bother calling to confirm weither I was the person her was suppose to meet with. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!! would not recommend him to my worse enemy
