Shiri Herbet Photo

Shiri (rhymes with “cheery”) Herbet understands that finding an apartment is one of the most challenging aspects of living in New York.  In addition to her expert knowledge of all the city has to offer, Shiri’s clients value how she infuses the process with humor and lightheartedness, bringing a sense of calm, efficiency and even fun to what could otherwise be a very stressful time. Shiri loves getting to know what makes her clients tick, and finding the perfect place for each of them to call home.   Her passion for the Big Apple began as a teenager when she would visit from her native Israel.  She’s delighted to call the Upper West Side home, and could draw each crack in the sidewalk there from memory, having made it her business to become an expert on the unique charm of her ‘hood.    Most apartment-hunters know, it’s not always possible to dedicate only the day-time hours to searching for your new home.  For those clients who often burn midnight oil, Shiri can be especially helpful, since she is a night owl who prides herself on her quick response times even after hours. Personality-wise, Shiri is best known as an adventurer.  She has visited 35 countries, and loves sharing travel tales with similarly-minded friends and clients.  She spends her free time taking advantage of the unique offerings of the best city in the world, enjoying everything from the perfect Happy Hour margarita (be sure to ask where!) to the latest Broadway show, art house movie theater or music venue.    Shiri is fluent in Hebrew.

We had been looking for housing for ten days, and had worked with around 10 brokers. Among all, Shiri was by far the most helpful, straightforward and honest one. She listened to our needs and only showed us apartments that actually satisfied them, not wasting our time like many agents do.

She is a very helpful and warm-heart agent. She really cares about our concerns and places herself in our position. She is also very efficient and has access to tons of new listings.

I worked with Shiri when hunting for my next apartment. The time available to me was quite crunchy and tight.
I engaged with Shiri on Tuesday and by Friday of that week I signed the lease. During the 3 Day engagement, Shiri made sure to hear my requirements, take them into account, show listings that fitted my specification and made sure everything went smooth. I didn't find her pushy but very rational when giving advice.

Now, I'm happily renting in the apartment that Shiri helped found for me.

I totally recommend working with her.

Shiri was great to work with. I originally reached out to her based on the reviews by other people who worked with her. I began my search online, but quickly realized that I would need the help of someone who really knew what they were doing. Shiri knew what I needed even more than I did. She was able to put in perspective for me my budget, and what I could get for that price in different neighborhoods. She was quick to reply. We started looking at the beginning of the month, and I had moved in to my new place by the 15th! She was incredibly knowledgeable and great to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an apartment in Manhattan.

Shiri responded promptly and took the time to meet and discuss my wants and needs. She was very friendly and patient. She's also refreshingly healthy-minded about her work-- as in she genuinely enjoys finding someone the right home, instead of being focused on time and money. You can't go wrong with her.

When my company relocated us from CA to Manhattan, Shiri was a blessing disguised as a broker. My husband and I needed an apartment with no time to waste and Shiri was fantastic. She is funny, honest, kind, caring and incredibly genuine. She went above and beyond to make sure she understood our wants and needs and found us an apartment the first day! In addition to helping us find an apartment, she was very knowledgeable and informative about everything from restaurants to transportation truly making us feel at ease. Because of Shiri, Manhattan now feels more like home.

Shiri was very helpful, honest, and straightforward with the apartment search. Although my boyfriend and I have never been to the city before, Shiri took us under her wing and let us know the practicalities and impracticalities of apartment hunting in this rigorous market. Should we need another apartment in the future, Shiri would be one of our top choices.

Shiri was fantastic. I was very lucky to have her. I have worked with brokers before and this has been my best experience. She really understands your requirements and is very candid about possibilities with out being rude or condescending. She is very responsive and professional. She is very honest and polite and also very patient. Looking apartments with Shiri is like looking for a home with a friend. She made the stressful experience of finding a home in new york very smooth.

Shiri Herbet is a kind, caring and excellent agent! We flew in from another state to rent an apartment and found an apartment within the 4 days Shiri suggested we needed to stay. Our daughter needed an apartment within walking distance to her graduate school in Manhattan. She showed us apartments that were in our price range and close to the location needed. The final apartment my daughter rented was larger than she hoped for. Shiri is very upbeat and interesting to talk to. She loves New York and is very knowledgeable about the area. We recommend her highly to help you find what you need and want.

Shiri is hard working, honest, and straight forward.
While I did not end up with the apartment I initially contacted her for, Shiri and her partner Alex worked with me efficiently and professionally to find me an apartment that was pretty much exactly matching my needs, in quite a short amount of time. I definitely recommend working with her.
Thanks Shiri!

When my wife and I initially used Naked Apartments to find a broker, we received a lot of responses and spoke to a few brokers who appeared disinterested in our personal situation (we were relocating to the US from Australia and new nothing and no one in New York).

Shiri put in the effort to understand our situation and personally take responsibility for finding us an apartment, providing advice on neighbourhoods and general New York living before recommending areas or apartments to us.

When we arrived, Shiri showed us a number of apartments including one she had handpicked with us in mind. We loved it and secured it that day.

Shiri is a friendly and honest person who also happens to be a great broker, and anyone who has the opportunity to work with her should do so. Even after finding us an apartment, Shiri has gone above and beyond her role in offering advice to us on living in New York and the US.

Thanks again Shiri, we've really appreciated your help.
