Here is a Review from one of the many clients Michael has assisted;
Dear Michael,
I wanted to thank you once again for your help in getting us the apartment. I must have spoken to thirty different agents over the past few weeks, all of whom promised to help, and none of them acting on that promise. But you came through for us 110%.
So allow me to commend your dedication and professionalism, and your manner.
Sincerely, Rachel --- Park Slope Brooklyn
I rented an apartment from this agent.

I had to message this agent several times to get a reply, and I had lots of trouble getting him to confirm appointments via text or email, which I said were my best/only methods of contact. He said it could be viewed "any time" but the landlord wasn't available on Saturdays which this agent should have known but did not communicate to us until an hour before the time we had requested. I understand that agents, supers, and landlords are all busy and have other commitments (including religious sabbath!), but he did not tell us what those were so that we could plan around them. Difficult to get a clear response from, tried to get us on his list instead of telling us that the place we were interested in had already been rented (the only one in our budget for that neighborhood and we knew it). Responded to this review privately and curtly rather than in public.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Michael Merola Responded:
In reference to your review, I called you and you did not answer several times.This is the busy rental season,apts. come and go daily, there is a 1.5% vacancy in Park Slope,not all landlords accept guarantors. Great 3/4 bedrooms are much higher than what you wish to pay..likely 3400-4500 per mth.I emailed you others, which you did not respond to my emails. I don't understand why you have the need to give negative reviews, and what the purpose is?

Michael Merola Responded:
Alex, I did respond to you, and I do not have any apartments that meet your search criteria of 1300.00 for a studio/1 BR/loft in the area's of Bedford - Stuyvesant, Bushwick, Greenpoint, Williamsburg. The current rent market is higher than 1300.00 now.But I will keep my eyes open.

Responded to my first inquiry to set up an appointment, then never replied when I tried to confirm. The apartment was rented a day later, my wife and I were willing to take it sight unseen if he would have responded.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.
