Robin is absolutely incredible to work with. She genuinely cared about our interests and did everything possible to get us the apartment that we fell in love with. I plan on only going through her for all future moves! She's THE BEST.

Robin is super responsive and effusive in her sales pitch. There is no doubt that Robin is a people person and loves what she does. The only problem is that the apartment we rented through her was completely misrepresented. Had I written this review a day after we signed our lease, it would likely be littered with praise for her professionalism, though calls sometimes came at inappropriate times like 10pm. However, after a year living in a roach infested, mice ridden apartment with terribly unresponsive management and lackadaisical superintendent, I have to say it is not worth it to use a broker.

Robin highlighted the newly renovated kitchen, but failed to share that there is a history of rodent and pest infestation and poorly patched up holes resulting from these renovations, which only encouraged little visitors from the neighbors. She failed to mention the apartment would not be professionally cleaned, particularly the bathroom which featured some impressively stubborn stains and discolorations.

The agency she is affiliated with seems like a lovely boutique firm, though how they handled the reference checks and guarantor review left something to be desired. This is undoubtedly the worst apartment I have ever lived in my decade in NYC. I sincerely regret being caught up in the facade presented by this broker.

UPDATE 8/17/2015:

Despite the phone blasting at 10pm, I've decided to raise the review up to 3 stars. We were still "sold" an apartment with a myriad of issues that have been a complete nightmare to deal with but this is the entirely the broker's fault. However, I will suggest that more attention be paid to the apartments you're "selling" to potential tenants. It should be the broker's responsibility to be truthful about issues with a building/apartment.

Robin Pollisky Responded:
If you would have contacted me about your issues a year ago and not at the last month or last days of this lease by writing a terrible review instead of calling me for help. I would have moved you out or tell your landlord to take care of you. I had no idea this building had problems. You are the only people I ever rented a place in there. I would never had put you in there with any of these issues if I knew that. I take care of all my clients as if they are family.I love all my clients.

Robin is fantastic! She helped me find a great place that exceeded my expectations. She respected my budget (didn't take me anywhere that was over) and genuinely listened to my concerns about applying for an NY apartment for the first time. She was gregarious and warm - made me feel super comfortable with the search. Beyond that she's honest, knowledgable about the areas in Brooklyn, and even took me out for a latte after I applied.

Robin was incredibly attentive - always answered texts and calls right away. I called her originally about an apartment that didn't end up fitting our qualifications, and when I called her about another place 2 weeks later, she remembered exactly who I was, my price range, that I had a dog, etc. Once we picked our place, she even arranged with the super for us to go back into the apartment a second time to measure it. The next time I rent an apartment (which hopefully wont be for awhile), I will definitely call her again.

Robin has found me my last two apartments, and I wouldn't go to anyone else. She cares deeply about her clients' satisfaction, and works hard to find something that fits what you are looking for. Robin is hands down the best agent I have come across!

I worked with Robin Pollisky. She was lovely. She found us a cozy, unique home in Crown Heights that was also miraculously affordable. She drove us around the neighborhood and held our hand through the nerve-wracking process. This was, after all, our first time handling forms, payments, and all that jazz. She was patient and communicative and just a real mensche.

Robin is so full of energy, enthusiasm, and knows the market so well. She almost magically has access to apartments before any other agent and will work hard to make sure you see those apartments first. Really a pleasure and a trip to work with this woman and am so happy for my new apartment!

Robin was absolutely amazing with my roommates and I. She went above and beyond with our applications and helped us get all of our paperwork in order! Her positive and charismatic energy makes her an exceptional agent who truly cares about her clients! I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an apartment! She tells you upfront what you need so there are no surprises!

Robin went above and beyond to get me into the place I wanted. She made sure to get an understanding of what I was looking for, took the time to show me around the potential neighborhoods not just the apartments, and stayed up very late with me to close the deal.
Can't speak highly enough about Robin!

I've worked with Robin over the past 3 years to find two great apartments. She has always been very quick to get back to me, regarding any inquiries or updates based on my apt hunting needs. She's funny too, which makes the experience less nerve racking. Next time I'm looking for an apartment I'll reach out to her first for sure!

Robin worked with our group through the My Space office in Crown Heights. She worked VERY hard to get to know each of us, show us the best of the best in our price range, and followed up with more apartments.

She was completely honest and upfront with us, and was sensitive to the fact that we were young girls looking for our first apartment on a budget.

Ultimately, we did not get an apartment (we chose to put the search on hold while our group figured some things out), but when I return to the search - I will be working with Robin!

I started looking for apartments less than a month before I had to move to Brooklyn and Robin was by far the best broker that I dealt with. She was responsive, knowledgeable about the area (food/entertainment/bars), drove us to the different apartments, and was genuinely interested in making sure that we got into a place that best suited our needs.

Mine and my potential roommate did not have very synced up schedules, so initially I went alone to check out a few places with Robin and the few that I really liked we went back to a second time (on a Sunday afternoon) once we were able to get our schedules worked out.

I will be keeping the business card that Robin gave me and would 100% go through her again if I need to another apartment in the future.

Robin went above and beyond to help find the perfect place for myself and my two roommates. While we were searching for our very first apartment from out of state, she worked hard to make sure we were prepared for searching and knowledgable of neighborhoods and NYC realty. With only ONE DAY of looking at apartments with Robin, we found our dream three-bedroom. Robin stayed with us through hours of deliberation and endless questioning - ultimately resulting with us submitting an application and deposit way after her office was closed. Robin is a fantastic agent who truly cares about her clients. We cannot thank her enough for her hard work and dedication!

Robin is WONDERFUL. She helped us out in a pinch. We came to her, desperate and tired, and she found us a place the same day. She is attentive, conscientious, and made the viewing process as fun as such a stressful situation possibly can be. She always called right back and there was never a problem reaching her. She looked out for us and always had our best interest at heart, going the extra mile to make sure we were all happy, safe, and got what we wanted. Robin saved us today! Do yourself a favor and work with Robin if you want an easy, fast, and efficient moving process.

Robin contacted me just hours after I found a listing on the website. Although the apt I inquired about was no longer available, Robin showed me two additional (and in my opinion better-valued) apts and made sure that we got the apt that we wanted.

Robin was an excellent broker, and I would both use her again in a second and recommend her highly. She showed us the best apartments we saw in our search - by far - and she worked with us really closely to make sure we got the apartment we wanted. Robin really cares about her clients, and it shows. She's also a straight shooter who's very upfront about every property she shows. Robin is the best! She helped us find an amazing apartment at a great price, and I highly recommend her.

Robin was wonderful to work with. She took the time to get to know us, and kept us updated regularly with new listings. Even though she works with so many people, we always felt like we were her number one priority. She advocated for us and made sure we got the apartment we wanted. SUCH a huge thank you to Robin for helping us find an apartment that is perfect for us!

My two friends and I were looking to rent our first apartment ever, which seemed extremely daunting to us. We emailed a multitude of agents, but many of them didn't respond, or responded and did not feel trustworthy. Then by a stroke of luck, I stumbled across Robin. I contacted her, and she responded within an hour. She took time that day (Sunday, her weekend!) to show us a fantastic place that fufilled our 'wish list' and was in our budget. We were nervous about the process, but Robin was patient with us, and went out of her way to make sure we understood the process and felt comfortable. She had great connections, and really knew the area well (she even gave us suggestions of restraunts to check out!) Working with Robin was amazing, and we absolutely recommend working with her! We are signing our lease next week, and could not be more thrilled with the apartment she found us!

I've lived in NYC for a long time and worked with many agents. Robin is hands down the best. She took the time to understand my needs and used her knowledge of the neighborhoods and apartments to help me find the perfect apartment. She's professional and hard working. She made sure I felt comfortable with my decision and really took the time to make sure I was getting the best deal possible.

Robin helped me and my roommates for three weeks to find the place that would be perfect for us. She took time to get to know each of us and cared a lot about finding us a place that was a good size and in a very safe neighborhood. She went above and beyond in regards to working with us without rushing us at all. Her honesty about the apartments was very appreciated. I would highly recommend working with Robin!

Robin is literally the best broken in NYC! She doesn't try to sell you anything you don't want--when you walk in an apartment she often will point out what is wrong with it first so that you can be fully aware of this and make the decision for yourself----she's super honest, super open, and very personable. I recommend giving her a call if you want to talk to a REAL person who will help you find what you are looking for! She helped my roommate and I find a great place on Franklin Avenue, which is exactly where we wanted to live---and she listened to us when we said we like the old stuff ! call this woman!
