One of the best brokers I've worked with in the 7 years that I have lived in New York! Yesim was on time, very well prepared and had multiple apartments on hand to show. We looked at 4 quality apartments in less than an hour. She's straight forward and honest, all listings were exactly as advertised with detailed photos and descriptions. I can recommend her hands down.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Yesim was fantastic. We didn't end up renting one of Yesim's apartments because we had seen something that was better for us before we met her but she spent so much time walking the streets and taking me to all the apartments on her list that would work for my husband and I. She is very knowledgeable about neighborhoods and NYC in general which was very helpful. And I ended up giving her deposit checks because we where interested in one of the apts she showed me. When I called back to tell her we had changed our minds she sent me a video via text of her shredding our checks which really impressed me. She seems very honest, she is timely and reliable with communication (ie. texts and emails) and really cares about finding her clients the best place them. I would recommend her 100% and will use her next time I need a broker in NYC.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.
