Super easy, quick, and enjoyable process.

I found an apt I liked. I contacted Moses. The next day he arranged for me to see it. Hours later my application was approved.

He was also helpful in being a liaison with the management company of the building in allowing us to access it so my roommate could see the apt as well.

Couldn't have asked for a more seamless and enjoyable experience!

Moses was very attentive, patient, and discerning regarding our needs with the 'right' apartment. He was honest, informative, and realistic regarding our goals - together we ended up finding a better place than we thought we could get. Thanks again, Moses!

My husband and I are relocating to NYC and spent an entire week looking at apartments and working with brokers. Moses is by far the most outstanding of all of them, truly an amazing broker. He's honest, knowledgeable, and fast. He told us exactly what we were coming to look at and did not try to sell us something we didn't want. In addition, he is a very friendly person, really a pleasure to interact with. My husband and I liked what we saw and were able to get approved and signed on a lease in less than 24 hours.

I really hope that I do not have to look for an apartment for many years, but if I do Moses will absolutely be the first person that I contact.

Moses was extremely helpful in helping me to find an apartment. He responded immediately to my request and showed the apartment I wanted. When it didn't meet my exact expectations, he brought me directly the apartment I'm still in a year later. He is very friendly and very willing to work within a short time frame to meet your needs and make sure you're happy. He's also wonderful with following-up. Can't recommend him highly enough!

Definitely 5 stars! Moses has been very professional. He responded to our email right away and did not waste our time showing apartments we clearly would not be interested in. He emailed us about a new listing immediately after it appeared on the market and showed it to us the next day as soon as we were available. It was exactly what we were looking for! We were able to apply the same day and got our new apartment. Moses worked with the landlord to make sure that our new place was ready on time. It is great to work with someone who actually listens. I definitely recommend Moses and will work with him if we decide to move again!

I have worked with 7+ brokers over the years. Moses is by far the best. He is honest, dedicated, informed, and - worth repeating - honest. Moses took the time to listen to (as well as understand) my needs/desires. He then worked tirelessly to find a suitable apartment for me, with a short turnaround time. He was always accessible and passionate about my satisfaction. He is a great broker and an even better person. I would recommend Moses if you want a straight-shooter, who will work diligently for you.

I can't say enough about how pleased we were with Moses Rubin and Abba Realty. They went far and above the average services of a realty company. Moses answered every one of our questions, at any time. And, worked tirelessly to get us our perfect apartment, even with our small budget. Moses was great at communicating our needs to our new landlord. He really did find us our perfect new home.
Everyone at Abba realty was wonderful to work with. We feel so lucky to have found an apartment through Moses and Abba. I would happily recommend them to everyone.

Moses was wonderful to work with and made the process of renting an apartment easy. He was able to work around my schedule and always made time to answer any questions I had about the apartment or the application process. He made sure that everything was communicated clearly and when I was ready to submit my application I had no concerns that hadn't already been quelled. I highly recommend working with him.

I had lived with roommates since 2007; with a job promotion and a salary increase I finally resolved to get my own place this year. Not being the biggest fan of Craigslist and having a short period to secure a place, a decided a broker was the best route. I approached several brokers at various agencies, including a few on this site, but my experiences left me exasperated...some made me feel inferior because of my budget, some were not upfront with fees, some seemed unfriendly and unapproachable, some seemed in such a hurry to 'get a sale' they were barely listening to me. On a Saturday in February, I spent 5 hours at a broker's firm, signing documents, handing over paperwork, forms of ID, and going through a drudgery of questions that made me uncomfortable and distrusting of the brokers and the whole rental process. In the end I turned down an apartment I liked, simply because I felt there was too much "fine print" that was not being explained to me.

The next day, a Sunday, I sent a random email to Moses inquiring about a listing I saw on Naked Apartments. The plisse sounded perfect - great price, location, charm and amenities. The next morning, Monday, I received a response: the apt had an application pending on it, but I was invited to contact him again in a few days to see if it went through. I was impressed with Moses already at this point because the response was fast and polite.

Lucky for me, the pending application did not go through. By this time, mid-February or so, Moses knew I really wanted the apartment and knew we had to act quickly. Through his busy days of meetings and other renter appointments, he kindly took time to explain to me exactly what was required to apply, the exact fees I needed, and - most important to me - what timeframes to expect, and what specific legal and rental language meant. I'm the type who prefers facts and figures rather than 'gray areas' - and the honest truth, facts and figures are what Moses always gave me.

In the interest of time and convenience, Moses offered prompt and courteous communication via email or text - a bonus for me because of my late work hours. He arranged everything for me; I honestly feel like the whole process was effortless and smooth, from emailing me the application, to arranging my viewing with the Super, to handing in the required fees.

Moses' openness and honesty is a rarity! He explained everything, and not just what I wanted to hear - but even things like what my options were if I was not approved, and that once everything was submitted there was nothing more we could do than to simply wait for the landlord/owner's answer.

Most fortunately for me, I was approved! Moshe promptly delivered the good news, and then immediately proceeded to guide me in the next steps. This being my very first rental in NYC, I was very appreciative of his efforts. He was approachable, welcoming my many nervous questions. He arranged the lease sgning just a day or two later, and even called me the weekend of my move, March 1, to ask me how things went and if I had any concerns.

I highly recommend Moses for anyone seeking an apartments! I've already given his name to several colleagues at work. If you need a place, believe me, your search WILL end with him! My apartment is everything he said it would be: clean, basic, great hood, safe for my teen daughter. Moses' kind, highly knowledgable and more than capable assistance and support helped me score a gem of an apartment!

Moses is the only broker I will work with from now on.

Moses is the most responsive and reliable broker I've ever dealt with in NYC. Every other experience I've had with brokers was a nightmare but he was a pleasure to work with due to his willingness to help, his in-depth knowledge of the property and his genuine desire to help us find a place that was right for my family.

Moshe was an excellent broker to work with! Always quick to answer emails and phone calls. Took me through the process quickly and was still there to help out until the day I moved in. I would call him again in a heartbeat (not that I plan on moving out of my beautiful new apartment anytime soon).

We were moving into NYC for the first time from Rochester. We needed someone we could trust to find and view apartments for us and to guide us through the complex application process. I had a bad experience with another broker, and my timeline was getting tighter, so it was like a gift when I found Moses. Knowledgeable, professional, and a great communicator, he found us a great apartment in our preferred neighborhood with exactly the features we needed then persisted until it was ours. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I'd worked with two other brokers before meeting Moses, and I only wish I had met him sooner. He was extremely honest, knowledgeable, and beyond helpful throughout the entire process - right from the apt showings to the lease signing. Apt hunting in the city can be a headache, but Moses was very accommodating and made things much easier. If anyone's looking for apts in upper Manhattan or Brooklyn, I definitely recommend Moses, as I already have to several of my own (and now very happy) friends.

Moses was very accommodating and helpful when my college roommates and I were looking to find an apartment quickly. He offered us an option that was in a safe area, within our price range, and made the process very smooth and without any major hassles. I would recommend working with Moses if you need to find an apartment; he has a great deal of knowledge & is very friendly as well!

When you need to secure an apartment in a hurry, Moses is the man for the job. Fast, communicative, and extraordinarily helpful, Moses worked overtime to get me approved for the beautiful apartment I currently tenant. His honesty is refreshing, and landlords take his recommendations for new residents seriously. Call Moses when you need a new place to live!

I can't say enough good things about Moses! We went back and forth emailing each other for a few weeks before we actually met. He was always quick to respond and thorough in his search for us. He found us the perfect space for us, was able to get the landlord to let us in early (despite the fact that the place was totally gutted and they had to push up the finish date by a week), and when questions arose about our lease, he was patient, thorough and communicative in listening to our concerns and explaining everything. I have worked with many brokers in my time in NYC, and during this search specifically, and Moses is the best!!
