Robert was amazing! I was looking for a starter apartment with my boyfriend for the longest and Robert ended that search. He was kind and attentive, he really helped me feel comfortable by putting himself in my shoes and that was one of the main reasons I decided to choose an apartment with him. Now I can say I have great first apartment as a new home.

Thank you again Robert.

I did respond to several e-mails from this person. I informed him that I was unable to assist him. End of story.

Robert proved to be a man of his word when he promised me he would find the right apartment for me.
He was fast and effective in helping me get through all the hassles and pains of getting an apartment in NYC.
I highly recommend him and I wish him all the best.

After endless hours spent with a number of brokers, I thought finding the "right" apartment was never going to happen... until Robert responded to my email. I had seen his good reviews on this site and expected someone who was good, but didn't realize I was going to meet a future friend and miracle worker. Robert took as much time as I wanted to see places. Sunday's, Friday evenings, Monday mornings... it didn't matter. Robert took me to see any and every place that could work in our budget and specifications. We ended up finding our dream apartment in our dream location, thanks to the diligence shown by Robert. Yes, brokers fees are expensive, but my empty pockets were comforted knowing that the person on the receiving end actually deserved it, worked hard, and was successful. Robert promises he will find you a great apartment and means exactly that.

I really do appreciate it.
It was my pleasure working with you guys!

I have say, apartment hunting in New York City is one of the most stressful experiences a person can endure. Between shuttling to locations- at times, the brokers we dealt with were trying to pawn off horrible apartments by convincing my roommate that it wouldn't get any better than this. We felt like we were doing most of the leg work in locating apartments and almost everyone did not "get" what we were looking for....that is, until we met Robert.

His timing in our search could not have been more serendipitous. He listened to what we were going for and did not waste our time showcasing apartments that did not fit the bill. He was punctual, professional, available, communicative and I'm happy to say - has become a friend throughout this process.

When it comes to finding an apartment - don't waste your time with other brokers. Consult with Robert and you will be relieved of the stress and annoyances that come with finding the apartment of your dreams.

Dreams do come true and Robert found my roommate and I a true gem just when we were on the brinks of giving up the search entirely.

Great experience. After spending 3 years at my old apartment, and unsure of how a proper search would go, Robert was very helpful and upfront about my options and possibility of obtaining my apartment with other applications. Very responsive during checkins and flexible with showings. My new apartment is a steal and I'm very excited to move in shortly.

Robert and his wonderful real estate firm were introduced to my brother and me through a family connection. From the moment we met him, he put us at ease and assuaged our fears and emotions during the daunting task of searching for an apartment under $2,000 in Brooklyn Heights.He showed us many possibilities and at the same time, we learned the neighborhood and were able to quickly find the right place.He also had a great rap ore with all the building staffs we encountered. Robert was there for us during the difficult application process, always readily accessible by phone and throughout showed exceptional sensitivity and genuine care...even buying us iced lattes on the hot day! While the original apartment did not work out, Robert was able to find us another gem. I highly recommend him in all and every way! Jennifer

I was referred to Robert through a friend who also had a great experience with his services and was definitely not disappointed.

Robert was very professional and friendly. 10am on the first day, he found me the perfect place. It was a home run. That's unheard of. He knew exactly what I was looking for and made sure the application process went as smoothly as possible.

Somehow he actually made the hunt for an apartment in NYC a pleasurable experience. I didn't think that was even possible! Thanks again Robert!

Like everyone else who has worked with Rob, we found him a great guy to work with. Honest and great attention to detail and especially understanding to what kind of place we were after. 3 of us are 26 and moved from Australia Rob matched us up with a great apartment for the right price and we are stoked especially after hearing a lot of stories about dodgy New York real estate agents. Thanks mate!

Robert helped us find an amazing place in our price range in the narrow geographic perimeters we set. We rental was "snatched" out from under us, REF worked double time to make up for it and found us the place we still live in! We definitely recommend him to others.

My nephew was moving from Los Angeles to New York, I was enlisted as the apartment finder. I came across an apartment that Robert was the broker for and immediately called him. I was anticipating on having to leave a message and to my surprise Robert answered the phone. Renting an apartment in Los Angeles is far different than renting in New York, Robert was very patient with me and answered all the questions I had. I immediately knew he was the one to find us our apartment. We flew to New York the next week, met with Robert and spent an entire day looking at apartments. By the end of the day my nephew had his first New York apartment! Robert was very professional and patient, and most importantly eased all our fears through his kindness. Choosing Robert was the best decision I made. If there are 10 stars to give I would give him that. Thanks Robert, we are eternally grateful to you!!

As an artist, I tend to have somewhat unconventional requirements for my living spaces. When I met Rob, it seemed like he intuitively understood what I wanted. He wasted little time and led me straight to an amazingly unique place in Brooklyn Heights. It was exactly what I wanted. Rob's a great broker and, more importantly, a really good guy.

Mr. Franklin, a knowledgeable and helpful person and realtor, is definitely the person to contact to help you find your new home. He has helped myself and numerous friends to find apartments to meet everyone's varied needs and requests. He'll help you with not only the practical matters, but all the things that help make a house a home - from the neighborhood, to the space and more. And he can recommend some wonderful Art to decorate your new space too!
