I never thought renting in New York could be so simple. Yaakov was enjoyable to work with. He found us a great apartment within our budget.

My experience with Yaakov (Jake) was not pleasant or professional. Not only did he never show up for the 2 apartment viewings that were scheduled, but he also failed to mention that he didn't have access to the apartment. Thus we had to re-arrange schedules to view the apartment during times in which the building's super was available.

After lots of back and forth regarding the application process, we were finally able to submit all documents, the application and put the security deposit down on the apartment. When I arrived at the realty office and met Jake, for the first time, he laughed at me after I introduced myself. He then started asking me questions, which had been discussed 2 times prior to our actual meeting. Jake went on to say that regardless of the fact that our combined income is 80x the rent, unless we're willing to get a guarantor (which we cannot) OR pay 2 additional months in rent upfront, then we can't get the apartment!

I'm shocked that after speaking with a realtor twice regarding our application and credit history that they would wait until the applicants have furnished all documents and moneies to tell them that they are not worthy of the apartment. I find it VERY hard to believe that with an apartment that has been on the market for over 30 days and there are 2 solid candidates that are willing to sign a 2yr lease, have excellent rental history, etc would be denied an apartment. Not having 700+ credit scores is a plausible idea when 95% of the credit history is student loans. But instead of wanting to having a conversation about all this, even though this was discussed 2x prior to meeting AND he said it was fine, Jake chose to be unyeilding and rude. I will never, ever go through an agency that thinks its okay to tell clients that they make enough money to do what is asked (pay 2 months of additional rent upfront). What an ABSOLUTE waist of our time.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Hi Andrew,

I'm sorry you had this experience with a realtor, but it seems you accidentally left this review for the wrong realtor.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Jake was very professional and pleasant to work with. I was shown the apartment the same day I contacted him. He always kept in touch until I found what I wanted.

Excellent. Helpful. Efficient. Miracle worker? My roommates and I moved to Brooklyn from out of town and with limited income. I was sure we'd be couch surfing for weeks before we had our own place. Enter Jake. Through him, we found a nice apartment before we arrived in NY. He was patient and handled our situation masterfully. I recommend him highly.
