Although we didn't end up renting an apartment with Josh, I have to see he was so attentive and kind and really went out of his way to show us apartments (which were great, but we ultimately decided to go with another one). I think Josh is not only a good broker, but a kind person and we absolutely loved working with him - super friendly, professional, attentive and well, Thanks for everything Josh!

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Josh answered my inquiry right away and was able to show me a few apartments the same day. He got me approved for a great apartment and I'm signing my lease on Monday. Thank you Josh

Great service and great guy. Just rented a beautiful 1 bedroom from him and he was straight up with me from beginning too end. Highly recommend him. Sorry the previous reviewer had a bad experience.

DO NOT USE THE BROKER! He will lie, change already discussed prices, and add additional fees way down into the leasing process. Look up more reviews on Yelp for Joshua Brick, Brick Joshua, Smart NY Realty and JB Realty. He operates under different business names probably for this reason. Keep a look out for his phone number and address 1837 Flatbush Ave and do not go near this guy. He also has a partner named Steve that runs the same games.

Josh set up an appointment with us for an apartment and never showed up. When we got there he told us the door was open in the unit and to go ahead in. As we looked through the apt and waited on him, he later called and said he went ahead to another appointment. Not sure why he thought that was ok. We called him back (while he was supposedly in his other appointment) told him we loved the apt and wanted to confirm the pricing and fees. Josh confirmed the apartment was $1400, $1400 broker fee and only a $100 app fee to which we would get back if we were denied for the apt for some reason. After we filled out the application, sent over our information and paid the app fee, Josh then told us that the owner wanted $1500 for the apt. After asking what we could do to work out the miscommunication, Josh came back and said the owner would go down to $1450, but the owner would no longer pay the $200 and $250 app to the management company, so we had to pay it. Eventually we got in touch with the owner and the owner said he never made any adjustments in the pricing and Josh only told him that we wanted the apt for $1450, so he agreed. Feeling better having communicated with the owner, we decided to simply ignore Josh and move forward with application, still willing to pay him the broker fee. We asked to see the apt again and hours before the apt, Josh decided to send his partner Steve to meet us, one of is multiple efforts to avoid talking and meeting us in person.

As days went by and no word as to what the next steps in the app process would be, we became worried and asked Josh again to review the process. He then told us that none of the fees we had paid, the initial $100 app fee and then the additional $200 app fee were never refundable (although, at the beginning of the process he said any fees would be refundable). This story goes on longer than I would like to continue writing. We ended up withdrawing from the application process after other factors surrounding this apt made us feel uncomfortable.

While working with him, you will notice that he prefers to deliver info that is hard to deal with like pricing via text, so he doesn't have to talk to you in person or over the phone. He puts on a great impersonation of a good person, but will do anything to his paycheck at your expense.

Point of the story is Joshua Brick is the scum of the earth.

Arranged an appointment with me to see a place way out in Bed-Stuy, almost in Brownsville, and never showed up. We had confirmed the appointment the previous day, no word about rescheduling, no reply to my texts. Very unprofessional.

It appears they have great listings online but when I got into contact with someone, he gave me another number to call that was supposed to show me an apartment, then he told me to call another number before he would meet me to show me the place and that number told me they didn't have any listing in the price range that was listed online and was my initial inquiry.

Steve contacted me and was quite helpful with my search of a new home. He arranged for me to view a few apartments. I wish all agents were that accommodating. Thanks again Steve
