Naftoli was very good at helping me find a new apartment at a great deal with the qualities I wanted. He can be brusque, but he's just trying to get you what you want while it is still available. I would definitely use him again the next time I need to find a place.

Stern Realty is very good!They do move fast, but that is because you end up looking for places when everyone else is (towards the end of the month). The people were very friendly, and my realtor, Naftoli, is completely amazing. So friendly and will introduce you to the entire neighborhood before looking at the place. This is a way better way to go than the shadyness of craigslist. Loved the places I saw, told me the positives and negatives of the places, and kept showing me places that were within my budget. Very good experience. Ask for Naftoli, you won't regret it!

I am moving from New Orleans to Brooklyn, so I knew only the basics about neighborhoods and the process of finding an apartment. I worked with Naftoli, and I cannot recommend him more highly. He responded to my inquiry within 8 hours, then met me at the office to explain the process and what I should expect. He also took the time to zero in on what I was looking for by showing me a range of good options. He truly acted as an advocate during my application process and in talking to the landlord. In the end, I was able to find and secure a beautiful apartment in my price range in less than 72 hours.

This agent was rude and discriminative, asking questions that had nothing to do with the rental of an apartment. He discriminated about the need for wheelchair access asking invasive questions in a rude tone

Naftoli Sternbuch Responded:
IM sorry for the misunderstanding! I simply wanted to know how many people will be moving into the apartment. I have many apartments with weel chair access and will be more then happy to assist you in your apartment search.

Naftoli was an amazing broker to work with. He continued to help me until I found an apartment I was happy with. He was incredibly patient and showed me as many apartments, in my desired neighborhoods, within my price range as I wanted to see. He was always very easy to get in touch with and will work around your schedule - we met in the evenings and on the weekend. I would definitely recommend Naftoli, he'll help you with every detail of your move and is more than happy to share his knowledge.

Big Thanks to Naftoli for making my move fast and easy. He was a pleasure to work with. I'd recommend him over all agents I've met.

*Update*
I'm half way through my lease and now feel he was a bit dishonest and rushed the process knowing I was a first time renter. He said we would get new floors which will not happen due to taking it "as is" and there's mold and other problems which were hidden until after I signed the lease. Beware.

I found Nafoli in a newspaper! I chose to sign up to Naked Apartments and other websites just to share my thoughts!

The apartment was $2500 dollars a month. It was when i was at lease signing and had 3 certified checks in my hand. Clumsy me i had mistakenly made Naftoli's check at a 10% rate which was $500 dollars more then what NAftoli was charging for the broker fee. I feel like most brokers would have just taken the money and wouldn't say a word! -But not Naftoli!! He told me that was not what we discussed and that i had made a mistake and i should go change the check to $500 less! He waited 45 min for me to do so! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!!!

Feeling inspired in Brooklyn!!!

Fast response! As a teacher, my budget isn't very flexible and needed to know if there was any way to get a lower rent cost. He was start to the point and that helps me to keep searching for other apartments instead of waiting for a response. Amazing!

I would just like to say that working with Naftoli was the easiest and smartest thing I could have done. He contacted me almost immediately after reaching out to him. After answering a couple of questions, he had a good idea of a few places I should look at. Although he was unable to make it to the viewing, he went out of his way to contact the current tenants to let them know I would be coming. I have never had a better experience than I did working with him!! I ended up renting the first apartment he had me see, and I could not be happier! Thank you so much for your wealth of knowledge and expertise! If looking for an apartment in Brooklyn, you MUST go through Naftoli!

Naftoli is an excellent agent. Not only is he professional, kind, and super pleasant (rare in Brooklyn), he is incredibly competent, quick, and on point. When my husband and I first moved to Brooklyn, he made the process seamless. And once we decided to leave, he helped us lease the apartment in no time! Five stars for sure!

Naftoli is amazing! His turn around rate was extremely fast and communication constant. He listened to exactly what my husband and I actually wanted, and found us the perfect place within budget! He was patient with us when we needed it, and worked with out very limited windows of availability. I also appreciated that when necessary, he made the effort to actually call instead of just texting. He is really the best real estate agent I have ever had! He is honest, dedicated, and a hard worker. I would recommend him to anyone.

Naftoli was a great help in finding an apartment. He was personable, friendly, and helpful. He kept in steady contact with us and replied swiftly to any of our inquiries. Naftoli showed us as many places as he could to help us compare and contrast the details of each apartment. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the apartments, the neighborhoods, and the pros and cons of every apartment. Thanks to Naftoli’s dedication, we had all the info we needed to choose the right apartment for us. I would definitely recommend Naftoli to any friends looking to find a new home.

Naftoli was a pleasure to work with! He gives great spacial advise and will lay out exactly what you have to work with. By the end of our first hunt, we've looked at over 8 units within 6 buildings in the area we were looking in! After seeing all the possibilities, my roommate and I have decided to sign one of the units we viewed. I would recommend working with Naftoli without a second thought!

I inquired about an apartment through text with the number provided on this agent's profile... He informed me it was not available (although it's still on his profile) and was extremely rude when he told me about another one. I asked him for pictures and he said "didn't see" Everything he said to me was basically one to two word answers. I've never had to deal with a broker like this before. He had an extremely immature attitude for a person who's supposed to be professional. It doesn't take a lot to show respect especially when potential clients are inquiring about apartments YOU'VE posted.

Naftoli found us an awesome apartment that wasn't listed publicly yet. He was very professional and punctual.

He also corrected a hiccup during our applications process that could have cost us the apartment. I enjoyed working with him and would definitely recommend him.

He knew what I wanted and gave me information about the listings that I wanted to see off the top of his head, it was nice to know that he understands my needs.He helped me every step of the way since searching for an apartment. I was very happy to complete successfully the process with Him.

I cannot rave about Naftoli enough. The process from my initial inquiry through the day I signed a lease was 6 days total. I sent dozens of emails to broker's, and Naftoli was the only person who called me immediately instead of just sending a form email asking me my income and credit information. He made me feel like a person. Not only was he warm and personable, but Naftoli was also professional--he didn't waste my time by showing me just the apartment that I asked for. He showed me things below my price point and above so that I had a thorough comparison.

I will definitely recommend him to all of my friends for their rental searches. He went above and beyond throughout the course of this week to meet me near my home to retrieve papers, calling or texting me to keep me informed about the process, and helping me obtain my dream apartment.

We didn't rent with Naftoli, but he was quick, efficient, and flexible to our criteria. We were a tough sell but he found a great apartment that could work with our budget limitations. We ended up choosing to move closer to Manhattan, but if you want to win that race to get the application in, talk to this guy.

UNPROFESSIONAL,RUDE,NOT PUNCTUAL,DISRESPECTFUL. MY PREGNANT WIFE AND I WAITED ALMOST 1 HOUR FOR THIS YOUNG NASTY KID. NO APOLOGY. REFUSED TO SHOW ME HIS ID. HE BECAME NASTY AND NERVOUS, AS WELL AS DEFENSIVE WHEN I PUSHED FOR HIS REAL ESTATE LICENSE. I WAS SO AGGRAVATED THAT I TOOK MY WIFE AND LEFT, WITHOUT EVEN VIEWING THE APT. MAYBE IT HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT WE ARE AN INTERRACIAL COUPLE. THE YEAR IS 2013! GROW UP!
