Lawrence was awesome to work with. Everything with him was straightforward and clearly explained... no surprises. He obviously has a good rapport with the landlord because I was accepted almost immediately after applying and got a fair rate... Quick and painless. I wish I could say as much for the other agents in Brooklyn. I couldn't recommend Lawrence highly enough.

I rented an apartment from this agent.

Tried to set up an appointment to see an apartment for 2 straight days but Lawrence is extremely slow to respond. He also expects you to fill out a form with dozens of questions just to schedule a viewing. Lot's of other agents that are more-than happy to schedule an appointment within 1 or 2 message exchanges on Naked Apartments. Don't waste your time with Lawrence.

EDIT:

You had all day Sunday and Monday to schedule a viewing. Broker not working on Sundays is ridiculous. Nonetheless, by the time you got back to me on Monday (2pm), I was fully scheduled until 7pm. I asked if that was okay. It took 7 hours for you to respond. By the time you did, my entire Tuesday is already booked.

I made it clear that I would share my contact info as soon as you committed to a showing. Most brokers are dishonest. I've seen 9 apartments in the past 2 days with 7 agents and you're the only one that was unwilling to meet me half way.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Lawrence Roberts Responded:
You requested a same-day anonymous appointment on a day I had already informed you we don't typically do showings (Sunday). You next requested a viewing ~8pm on a Monday and I was booked already. You were unwilling to provide a full name, email, or phone number. Unfortunately we weren't holding any open houses for you to attend and scheduling a private showing without any contact information is against our policy.

I'm glad you found someone willing to help you.

Smooth from begining to end. Lawrence really understood what we were looking for. The process was quick and we were in our new apartment in a week. Definitely recommended! Bonus points for being from Brooklyn and really knowing the ins and outs of the neighborhood!

Lawrence is a super honest agent. He was not pushy at all and he genuinely listened to my needs and my budget. He even went so far as to warn me about things I might not like about an apartment before showing it to me. He gave me the mental space I needed to come to a decision on my own about whether the apartment was right for me. He went above and beyond to do the right thing. He also gets "extra credit" for being a native of Brooklyn as he knows the area well.

Haven't rented yet, but want to say this fellow seems on the level. The video I saw made you feel like he wasn't hiding anything bad about the apt., very thorough and appreciated.

Lawrence responded to my initial inquiry right away and lined up many apartments for me to see in a very short amount of time. Well informed of all of his listings, can answer any questions immediately and his office members are highly professional, helpful, and responsive as well. Though I did not rent an apartment from Laurence, I highly recommend him to anyone!

Even though I didn't end up renting with him, I would gladly contact Lawrence again during an apartment search. He was courteous, helpful, and easy to talk to - which is actually a great asset when showing a client multiple apartments in an afternoon! His listings are also a huge step above what most other brokers are offering.

Lawrence is courteous, thoughtful and highly professional, as well as honest and personable. His courtesy and affable manner was especially notable, given that I was unfortunately nearly fifteen minutes late for our appointment. He was helpful, and very knowledgeable about the area I was researching. Although I'm still early in my search for an apartment, Lawrence took the time to work with me and answer all of my questions. An added plus: Destination Real Estate has a very helpful website that contains accurate video footage/photos of some properties.
