I literally just finished my 4th NYC apartment hunt and I know how stressful it is. Luckily, it doesn't have to be as hard as you think. I'm in tune with the Brooklyn market, and I will tell you what an apartment's deal is. There's no reason for me to gloss over the fact that the second bedroom doesn't have any windows or closets, and I won't tell you the rooms are big if they aren't. My time is precious also so there's no point in wasting anyone's.  If you see one you like, email me, ask what you want, and let's view. Have your stuff together, be ready to apply, and get ready to move! If you don't see anything you like, but just want to chat, I can do that too.

I worked with a lot of agents and Tim was one of the only ones who responded, showed me things that would fit and sent me information on them before hand. So many agents contacted me with listings not even close to what I needed. I wish I could have rented one of the ones Tim showed, but we found our dream apartment right after he showed us apartments. I will definitely send him any friends looking and keep his info for the next time we move. Great agent with great listings! Thanks Tim, sorry!!!

Extremely unprofessional. Although he answered my inquiry in a timely fashion, it was rude. I'm surprised he's in a service industry. I wouldn't do business with him.

Tim Intravia Responded:
Reese: I'd like to see it on my break Monday.

Tim: Only showing is sat at 2 pm. Can you make it?

Reese: I'm out of town this weekend. I can do next weekend if it's available.

Tim: Doubt it, 25 people viewing tomorrow. Check back tho, ya never know!

I'm not sure where the "unprofessionalism" is here, esp considering I did in fact respond within 5 minutes. Perhaps it was the lightning quick, honest response regarding the way under market apartment you were interested in?

The most unprofessional, childish and out of order broker I've ever delt with.

Stay clear and check out his companies reviews on Yelp if you want more honest reviews!!

Tim,

I'll happily pay a competitive brokers fee. Just not to you now!

Comments like:
'You don't understand the market'
'Your application wouldn't have been accepted anyway'
'Don't email me again I'm busy'
and calling me and texting me after I leave this honest review to complain and have a go at me are all very unprofessional.

Oddly, your responce here is the most professional you've been today. Sadly, it's not true though.

There are some awesome brokers out there who will work hard for you, not just for themselves. Do your homework and read reviews everywhere!

Find someone that will work great for you. Don't settle for Tim.

Tim Intravia Responded:
Ricki,

I'm sorry you didn't want to pay the brokers fee, (who does!?)but both the ad and I were very clear about that. I wish you luck in your search and regret that we weren't able to find you an apartment that worked in your price range.

Best,
Tim

Follow up--I wish you the best. I've fought pretty hard for most my clients, unfortunately, from time to time, sometimes, my efforts are for naught. There's a lot of respectful prospective renters, you're just not one. Good luck.

Nicest and least pushy agent we saw (and we saw a lot)! We asked Tim to meet us late notice around 8pm, and he didn't hesitate, taking his time with us. We didn't rent from him, but he was clearly genuine and honest, and we would have if we could have!

Only had a brief email exchange, but he responded to my question about an apartment within an hour and was professional in his communications.

I didn't end up renting from Tim, but he was super nice. He replied to all my emails and informed me as soon as anything new came on the market. He was very personable and was able to empathize with the stress that comes with apartment hunting in NY, by relating his own recent experiences. In a sea of awful evil brokers, Tim didn't make me feel like he was taking me for a ride, and I appreciated that.

NO BS with this guy. He posted an apartment that just hit the market without any pictures or any info and told the truth by saying he knew nothing about it but it was worth a gamble. We took a chance and went to see it (usually wouldn't, but went with the gut here) and it turned out to be amazing. We applied on the spot and after some back and forth (due to my wife's credit issues) we were approved. Tim actually convinced the landlord we were a safe bet despite her little hiccup w a missed student loan payment and we moved in two weeks later. Love the place, and while paying a brokers fee is not something anyone wants to do, we got our money's worth and then some. Thanks Tim!

Tim is great. Very responsive, flexible, and personable. My renting process with Tim and the entire Brick Real Estate team could not have been smoother or easier. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to rent.

Tim took the time to understand what I wanted in an apartment, showed me the courtesy of limiting his suggestions to what knew I'd like and found me a place that met all my requirements.

I'm really happy I had the opportunity to work with him and I love my new apartment.

Cheers Tim!

Tim took us all around Bushwick on a super hot day, he even bought us water. Ultimately we renewed our lease, but what a nice guy and honest broker, rare these days!

I loved the apartment that Tim listed, but I never saw it--we had some abrupt communications mixed with stretches of radio silence, and we didn't end up setting an appointment up in time (I found another apartment while we were going back and forth). I didn't have a horrible experience, but this is the kind of broker emailing that got really frustrating during my search.

Tim Intravia Responded:
Laura-we were scheduled to view something 10 hours from the last email when you sent this-"I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to cancel our appointment for tomorrow morning. I am just putting in an application on an apartment I saw this morning, and I don't want to waste your time while I have a pending application"

I am guessing you had a lot of contact w many agents, butyou clearly mistook me for someone else in this review.

Tim was very helpful and showed me this place last minute. I found a great deal out in Bushwick, but I had to make an account to let you all know how helpful he was. Thanks Tim!
