I saw one apartment with Onur and though we did not rent it, he was very respectful, smart and an all around cool guy. When we need to look again, I will be sure to give Onur a ring and recommend that others do, too.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Onur was very courteous and respectful to our needs as a client. At first we hesitated to answer all of his questions because they seemed like too much information to give out to someone we did not know. In the end we understood how important it is to find the right fit and he did find us a great place in only 4 days!! He is extremely responsive and very smart person to work with. Just tell him what you need and he will work night and day to find you the perfect place. He even sent us a move in gift to our home. He deserves all of the stars we are giving him! Thank you again for being such a professional and a nice person! It is rare to find one these days.

Unfortunately I was not able to give Onur my business as I took a listing from another broker. I wish I could have.

Onur was very professional in our interactions and extremely attentive to our needs / budget. If you are looking for a place, be sure to let Onur know and he will do his best to sort you out. Thanks Onur!
