Magaly was very prompt with her responses and she showed a lot of effort in helping me to find an apartment. Even though I did not rent an apt from her I appreciate the time and effort that she put in to help me.

Magaly showed me a number of good apartments on the UES and had good knowledge of the area. Thanks Magaly!

Hi Fiona,

It was great meeting you, I'm sure everything will work out with the new place and you will be signing leases this week. I was pleased to show you and Bridget around yesterday. Let's stay in touch.

Thanks again and all the best!

Magaly tried to pull the classic bait and switch on me.

I sent her a list of multiple apartments that she had listed or marked "updated" within 4 hours of my message. The message was very detailed, describing what I was looking for, dates, and price range. Magaly agreed to show me those exact apartments.

When I arrived, she showed me an apartment that was $400 over my max. She then asked me to sign a document saying that she showed me the apartments and outlining the next few apartments she would take me to. While looking at the paper, I noticed that none of these apartments were the ones I asked to see and all were significantly over my price cap.

I pointed this out to Magaly who said that she doesn't have anything in my price range. When I asked her about the apartments that I had asked to see and to which she has agreed to, she said that the nakeapartments website was acting up and wouldn't allow her to remove the listings (I checked: the listings continued to remain up and get updates over the course of the next few weeks). If that was truly the case, why had Magaly explicitly agreed to show me those apartments and not told me that the listings were rented (or never existed to begin with)? When I said that it didn't make sense to look at any of the apts that she had picked out because they were too expensive, she all of a sudden that that she "remembered" that she had one place listed for exactly my max and if I wanted to see it the following day. Needless to say, I did not meet her again.

The other reviews here are clearly fakes. Unfortunately, Magaly is the kind of broker that gives NY brokers a bad name.

Magaly Riera Responded:
Hi Patricia, First of, I want to apologize for any misrepresentation on my part. It was never my intention to show you an apartment higher than your budget. Yes, you sent me a detailed email with your specifications and your budget. The mistake I made was when I searched through my inbox for your name and came across an email thread from mid-October when you contacted me regarding a $2500-1BR unit on the UES. I'm sorry we couldn't work together.

I am delighted to be writing you a review on naked apartments.

Magaly is extremely professional and has a ton of knowledge about upper east side apartments, managements and the area itself. She called out most the apartments I seen with other brokers just by giving her a price and street #! That's insane, how she remembers all these apartments I have no clue! Once we got down to the application the process was super smooth. After 1 day we got the approval from the leasing agent and we signed the lease. Seemed so effortless! Thank you!

I had a great experience with Magaly at Cayenne! she was awesome to work with! I was able to find a great apartment that fit all of my needs, right in the Upper East Side, where Magaly focuses. I told her what I was looking for, and she found it for me. Magaly was available at any time to answer questions that I had. I was a little nervous renting my first place in the city, but she helped me out with everything. Magaly even helped me find good places to purchase furniture, as well as she recommended me to movers and a connection at time warner she had! Magaly went above and beyond! Great broker, very professional and a sweet heart!

I was new to the country when Magaly helped me rent an apartment that accepted diplomats. I was satisfied with all the great support she gave me. The process was so easy and I moved in right away. Magaly is a person who takes care of her clients and makes everything easy. Thank you for everything you are certainly a fabulous broker.

Best,
Annie

I rented an apartment with Magaly, she found me a place on the UES. I was initially looking for a studio but then she helped me renting a 1 bedroom. I love my new home and the building is great. Location is perfect to be around. Thank you for your hard-work and for all your help.

Regards,
Dan
