Max knows the apartment hunting game better than anyone else, and that's why he's extremely successful. As a newcomer to NYC, I had a lot to learn; many brokers came at me with lots of listings, and many of them wasted my time showing me places that clearly did not meet my criteria.

Max, however, listened to exactly what I wanted in terms of cost, size, and amenities, so every place he showed me was a strong candidate. He also went out of his way to find places that weren't clearly listed. When it came time to do paperwork, Max was completely honest about all of the various fees and deposits, and I never felt pressured or confused during the process. Most importantly, Max is extremely quick and aggressive, and that is EXACTLY what you need in a NYC real estate broker...especially in the summertime when the demand is extremely high.

If you know exactly what you're looking for, Max will find it for you (and he'll do it quickly), so be ready!

Max is one of a kind. He is charismatic and always on the move to find the apartment that's perfect for you...no matter your budget. He is flexible with his schedule and promptly responds to emails. More importantly, his 10+ years of experience in conjunction with his deep relationships across the city helped my roommates and I secure an apartment quickly...it came on the market 15 minutes before our appointment and we were closing by lunch (the landlord called him personally to give him first dibs).

To sum up, if you need an apartment in NYC, call Max Salazar. You will not be disappointed.

Max was really responsive to my inquiries. He managed to fit high quality options into my busy schedule. I got to rent a midtown east apt within walking distance to work with fair price. I would highly recommend Max to anyone.

Max was very helpful in showing me many apartments both in the specific area that I was interested but also in slightly different adjacent areas where the apartments he had identified matched my requirements. Max was very responsive to all questions / emails and made the whole process very straightforward all the way through to signing the lease. He followed up with me quickly and made sure that I had all of the paperwork to hand when I made my decision about an apartment.

I usually don't write reviews online. But finding an apartment is a very painful and stressful process. And in the jungle that NY is there are few opportunities to get real, concrete, and truthful feedback on brokers.

My name is Marc and I'm a Belgian national that moved 2 years ago to the city with very few ties in the US. For us foreigners, finding an apartment is even more difficult given the amount of paperwork required, especially if you don't have income (I was a student until a few months ago) and credit history in the country.

In my case, I was additionnaly extremely rushed with time, given I got to the city from my summer on Sep 22 and had to vacate my previous apartment on Oct 1st.

I got in touch with max through Craigslist, and every single listing he showed was of truly high quality. He was extremely flexible in adapting to my busy schedule and used a no b******t and efficient style of working. After a failed application at the Caroline (our application got there only 30 min after another one) he found me an even better 2 bedroom, 2 baths apartment that takes dogs in a beautiful building in SoHo - all of thatwhile still negotiating the price down despite the deadline.

He managed the application process admirably and really fought for me and my roommate despite the flaws in our respective files (e.g. guarantor requirement, etc.). Finally he even helped me moved when I realized most of my friends couldn't take enough time off their job to do so.

All in all, Max is the best broker I've met in the city, and I've worked with a bunch of them (I moved 4 times in tow years). This review should be sufficient to convince you, but if not, feel free to contact me.

Best,
Marc

Max was the first agent to respond to my questions. He had 3 units immediately the next morning that fit everything I was looking for. He really works hard to make you happy! I highly recommend!

While we did not end up working together, Max was fair with his information, responsive to emails and questions, and courteous throughout.

A true TROOPER in the industry. Max knows what he is doing. I'll most likely go with him when I'm ready. He works and aims to please. Very easy to work with. Listens, recommends. I would HIGHLY recommend him to others.

Thanks Max

Max was the first broker I ever worked with and he made the apartment finding process a breeze! My roommates and I had lots of specifics in what we wanted in an apartment and did not think we would realistically be able to find a place that really fit all of our needs, but Max showed us 3 great places that were infinitely better than anything else we had seen on the market, one of which we ended up renting instantly. He only shows you places that really fit your criteria and is very honest with you about what is out there for you. He made the process quick, efficient, and seamless. He got my roommates and I the lease overnight via FedEx since we are moving from out of town, and he helped walk us through the entire process. It is definitely worth setting up a meeting with Max. I promise you will not be disappointed and it will not be a waste of time. I thought I was going to have to spend all weekend looking at apartments and settle for one just so I would have a place to live but I found a place quickly and definitely did not settle I LOVE my new place! Email Max he will help!

I had given up on the listings coming from Naked Apartments until Max sent me an email. He could be one of the few brokers that actually pays attention to your needs. He saw my profile and emailed me about a brand new listing. My wife and I hadn't even walked through the whole apartment before we decided that it was perfect. Max was so in tune with our requests that he even pinpointed our favorite block!

We didn't bother to see any of the other listings for the appointment, but based on the photos, I know those would have fit all of our requirements too. Within 36 hours, we had the keys in our hands.

From start to finish, Max was fantastic. He was responsive and accommodating. He didn't waste our time, and he didn't play any games. He's one of a kind in this cutthroat business. I would recommend him to anyone.

I had limited time in NYC to land an apartment. I gave Max specific requirements of the apartment I wanted over the phone. When we met at his office, he was ready to go. He gave me three options to to look at that day. We saw all three and I fell in love with two of them! Everything was signed and sealed in time for me to catch my flight back home. This guy will not waste your time and he delivers!
