Hi all! I came on nakedapartments just to give an outstanding review for Rose Blau. :)

In May (2015), I went on the dreaded nyc apartment hunt, going through tons of headaches and soooo many pages of Craigslists posts, plus 13 brokers. Let's just say... thank freaking goodness Rose was lucky # 13.

Yes, she is maybe too honest (I appreciated it though), and abrupt, and blunt, and busy (so just try again if she doesn't email/call back, but I believe she always responded to me). And yes, she tells it to you like it is as far as what you can/can't afford, whether your time frame is realistic, whether your requirements can be met, etc. (All of my requirements were met btw, which were: elevator, 24/7 security guard who accept packages, laundry in building, dishwasher, unbelievably low rent, particular neighborhood.) But she is great and she does the job so well.

She knows the good listings because she is proactive and experienced. She doesn't push you to get anything. She doesn't talk anything up. (She doesn't need to.) She just shows you amazing places based on your specifications and you can decide on it. (And that's how it's supposed to be! but almost no one does this for some reason!)

This was remarkably a different experience from any other broker I or my friends have used. (The other brokers I used showed me really bad apartments in crappy neighborhoods for the same price I got for my current amazing place through Rose. Anyone who has been through the major time-wasting nightmare of using brokers with bad listings knows what I mean when I say it's just like the apartment-hunting episode of 'Louie.')

Also, even after I already moved in, if things weren't quite right or ready, she took care of me to make sure everything was perfect, which is so above and beyond. For example, I wasn't satisfied with the landlord's/super's/management's/contractor's (whoever was responsible, I'm not sure) pre-move-in cleaning and she made sure they cleaned the apartment of dust, etc, for me and even replaced appliances (including getting me a new fridge and stove for free- and the stove was perfectly fine/already new) and added new features! Even got the landlord to pro-rate me 3 days rent for my troubles.

I tried to email her recently to ask what kind of gift I could thank her with, and she refused a gift. ;)

So now I'm on here hoping that increasing her business is a good "thank you" (not that she needs it, probably, but still).

Also, if you don't have a lot of money like me, sure-- you might not get a reno'd-luxury-whatever, but she really sticks to your requirements. I got what I wanted, stayed in my price range and dream neighborhood, though it also meant getting something small with few windows in an old building and an unpretty bathroom - fine with me! "Big" and "New" wasn't on my must-haves, doorman/elevator/laundry/dishwasher/cheap was. I feel like I got an amazing deal, and now it's October, and I'm still so happy and grateful for my apartment. Thank. Freaking. GOD. (and Rose!)

Feel free to message me if you have questions or want more details or if you'd like to see pics of how it all turned out! You can message me here, and this account is also linked to my facebook if you prefer that.

Anyway, good luck!

Rose was extremely helpful at every possible step in the process of renting an apartment. She made it easy to find our new home and I would happily recommend her to anyone who wants to rent in NYC.

Rose Blau and Peter Schoen were remarkably diligent in finding me an apartment and guiding me through the leasing paperwork. Despite my rather meager housing budget, they found me a new home within a week, and were cordial and professional throughout the process. I can recommend them wholeheartedly. They were absolutely worth every dime of their fee.
