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

Haven't found a place that I really like yet, but Michael was great. Very friendly and professional and offers a really good deal on his broker's fee. If the right apt came up, I would definitely rent an apt through him

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Moving can be a hassle (believe me, I've moved 6 times within the past 6 years due to my profession). As a young professional wanting to settle down in Brooklyn, I realized that there are so many horror stories out there of agents who were scammers. But, Michael quickly proved that to be false.

Michael was very quick to respond to my initial call, and was able to accommodate a apartment tour that evening. He was very thorough and honest, and warned us that his apartments go quick so we had to act fast. And fast doesn't even being to describe how the process was. However, the apartment that we initially wanted was rented out to someone else (this shows how fast apts go!). Michael notified us that there are other options within the building and found another apartment for us, and if we don't like it..he would offer us a full refund. We filled out the application that night, and we were accepted, and sent the lease the next morning. Michael explained everything to us every step of the way, and he was always very quick to respond.

If you're looking for a broker, don't look anywhere else. Michael is definitely the perfect agent!

Michael was amazing! He really went above and beyond getting me into the apartment I wanted.
I was faced with challenges, having a dog and less then perfect credit. He found me a great,safe and cute spot for me and my pup to call home. Not only is Michael a hard working, dedicated agent but, he is also a genuine guy. He truly impressed me with his kindness. I would definitely reccomend him to a friend and I will use him again in the future.

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:
I called you, texted you, and you did not reply This was the busy rental season,apts. come and go daily, a 1.5% vacancy is in Park Slope,Not all landlords accept guarantors.you mentioned you needed one .because of your bad credit. you wanted to pay 2600, for apts that are 3400p/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, when you have issues with negative credit and income., I am the bad guy?

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.

Michael Merola Responded:
FYI I did respond to you , and you never answered the phone, also I have no control when and if another agent rents an apartment or has a application
