Where do I begin?

I saw a listing for a co-op 1 Bedroom apartment for $1225 and thought "this can't be real"...so it took me a while before I even reached out. Johnny responded right away telling me the place was still available and I met with him to see it the same day.

I fell in love with the building, the neighborhood (Hamilton Heights), and the apartment's character and couldn't pass it up. I put the deposit on it right away, oh and it was actually $1200! Johnny was patient and always available when I called, walking me through every step of the way. He made this a seamless, easy, and quick process. He even went the extra mile and referred me to one of his clients who has a moving company.

I've always been hesitant when it comes to working with brokers, but I can tell you that Johnny is honest, efficient and fair.

I'd recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment, he was great!

first i will start with he was very timely with the first response. my issue is was that he wanted to meet on a random corner, instead of the exact address or meeting at his agency. this listing does not indicate that he charges a 15% fee, (he told me about the fee after we agreed to meet) which was not the problem, but when i asked him to fax me the fee agreement, and the name and number of both his agency and the building's management or owner, all of a sudden the location was rented, which was exactly an hour before we were suppose to meet. why did he agree for a viewing if the venue was already rented. let me back trace: i saw the listing (posted only for 9 hrs)/ i contacted the agent via text/ the agent respond via text a few hours later/ we agreed to met, same day/ agent mentions fee, i ask questions, same day/ agent tangos around answering my questions, then tells me the location has been rented/ the ultimate red flag. why would agree to meet me, the same day you responded to me, then tell me the apartment is rented after i asked questions to verify and cross-reference that he was a legit agent and working on behalf of his company and/or the building's management. personally, this felt like a scam. i would advise that everyone do their research before signing any contract with this agent, and read the whole contract before you sign it. also, he gave me the name of his realty. i googled and called the number listed online. no one picked up the phone, and on top of that there was no voicemail set up, which an automated voice says after the ringing stops. just giving you the heads up

I am so so glad I worked with Johnny because he just simplified the whole apartment hunting experience for me.
I was working with another broker and the guy did not have any clue of what he was doing because of that broker I lost an apartment that I felt in love with. I decided to move on with another broker and found Johnny in the site. At the first email I sent him I have a quick response from him, he prepared me to be ready with the paperwork that I need for the managements that we looking apartments at. I saw an amazing apartment and thanks to him and his guidance I got my apartment right away. he was always there for me, always go the extra mile and he made happened. Great work ethics and excellent service.

This was the most pleasurable experience in getting to know how the new york market works and the paper work i needed to prepare before applying for my apartment. It was very easy and johnny was very helpful i loved his service he responded relly fast to all my questions seems to know exactly what he is doing ! He suggested great apartments the apartment i had originally responded for was unfortunately taken but he has guided me into many others that are by far way better.
