I had called many brokers and none returned my calls or replied to my text except Lou. He was always available every time I contacted him. They, him and his business partner, were always very personable, professional and courteous. They made me feel like I was their only customer, and showed me a couple of apartments right away. I highly recommend you contact Lou, he is the best!!!

The agent charges a broker fee, but I was not interested in fee-based apartment. The agent explain to me that he does charges fee, but would let me know if he finds a no-fee apartment.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Lou Duarte Responded:
Hi Rahman,

Thank you very much for the review, I sincerely appreciate it. Just to clarify what I explained to you: There's no fee charged to you if the landlord is willing to pay the broker fee. At this time, I didn't find any no-fee apartments that fit your criteria but will keep searching!

Lou is AMAZING! He responded quickly to my initial contact and was thorough and professional. Even though he showed me some great apartments, I ended up renting elsewhere. Lou still helped me through the process and gave me negotiation tips for the other lease which was incredibly kind. He was genuine in making sure I was happy with wherever I decided to sign. Lou is a true gentleman who is excellent at his job. USE HIM!

Great broker. Showed me a lot of wonderful apartments in my price range within a few days of first speaking with him. He did a lot of research for what I was looking for, and even looked into parking garage pricing for the area I was interested in. Lou is great and I would recommend him to anyone who wants an honest, hardworking broker that will find you a great apartment!!!!

Lou is a great broker. A very personable and sweet guy to work with who really went above and beyond to show us great places. He took into account what my roommates and I wanted, doing his research to show us places we had yet to see with other brokers. He is very prompt with responses and did a wonderful job following up with owners and different management companies to get us all the answers we needed in searching for the perfect place. He is a very easy person to get along with and I definitely recommend Lou to anyone looking for an apartment in the city!

Lou did an outstanding job assisting my girlfriend and I in finding an amazing apartment. He was able to find us exactly what we wanted on our first night of looking. I could never imagine that searching for an apartment would be so easy. Lou was personable, polite, and detail-oriented. I strongly recommend him.
