Seriously, Zuriel Haskins is the BEST broker we've worked in New York! He's actually the best service we've had in NYC in 5 years!

Zuriel is the nicest, most helpful, patient and accomodating broker you'll find. Not pushy at all, he will show you as many or as few apartments as you need and is willing to always go that extra mile to find you the best apartment. He spent a good 6 weeks with us looking all over different areas of NYC and Brooklyn to see where we liked, always showing us places that fit out criteria - yes, he actually listens to what you want - and importantly, he always made the appointments efficient by showing us many places at a time, which we appreciated.

We have just signed our new lease and couldnt be happier, we've found a broker we'll use in the future for rentals and sales.

Highly recommend Zuriel!!

Zuriel is hands down the best broker I’ve worked with in New York; extremely knowledgeable, professional and patient. He took the time to really understand what my needs were and what I was looking for. He showed me a lot of options in different neighborhoods which really helped me narrow down my search to a specific neighborhood and type of apartment. He would say to me, “I don’t want you to force yourself to like something” and he really made sure I didn’t give up until I found “the one”. He was also great during the negotiation and approval process and made sure everything worked smoothly until I signed my lease. I would recommend him to anyone looking for their new home in NY.

Zuriel has been very nice and helpful, he has a very good knowledge of the area in which we were looking for an apartment and took time not only to show us apartments but also to give us information on the neighborhood. Although we did not rent through him at the end since we decided to apply for an apartment we had seen before meeting him, we appreciated a lot his kindness and efforts to help us in our search.

I was looking for an apartment in a bit of a rush, but was not willing to settle. I had a very specific list of things the place had to have, a certain amount I was looking to spend, and a seemingly unreasonable deadline I had to find this place in. I was, hate to say it, the client every broker must dread. Zuriel was outstanding in ways I have not come across in any broker I have ever used. He was courteous, personable, extremely knowledgeable, and honestly eager to help me find "the place". He was in contact with me multiple times a day, and did not give up until we finally found it. Not once did he ever show hesitation or frustration. We all know how trying apartment searches can be, and I never once doubted finding a place, or even finding it in time from the minute I started working with Zuriel. I am certain that after my outlandish demands, he could find the perfect pad for anyone looking! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking...if anyone can find it, it will be Zuriel!

Zuriel was very quick to respond to my original email.

I spent the day looking at apartments with him and I couldn't have been happier. He understood what I was looking for, and was extremely patient with me. He had a positive upbeat personality that made the whole experience really exceptional.

While I didn't end up renting any of the apartments I saw with Zuriel, it in no way reflects negatively on him.

Highly recommended.

Zuriel was a pleasure to work with and I strongly recommend him to anyone looking, particularly in Brooklyn. Zuriel has strong ties to the area and is a wealth of information on everything from the architecture to restaurants and shops. Although we ended up renting in a different area, Zuriel presented us with some excellent options and I would certainly work with him again.

Zuriel quickly gained our trust and found my girlfriend and me a beautiful 1 bedroom in fort greene. Moving from Chicago to Brooklyn, we knew the type of apt that we wanted, but needed an education in Brooklyn neighborhoods, and Zuriel patiently showed us around and quickly found us the perfect apt in the perfect location for us.

Zuriel was not only helpful and kind but also totally understanding about my crazy schedule! He showed me around the neighborhood and made sure I got a feel for what it would be like to live in the area. I'd recommend him to anyone who wants to work with a broker who is honest, knowledgeable and trustworthy.

Zuriel was a wonderful broker! He was knowledgeable, professional, accessible, and very helpful. My roommate and I were searching for a great apartment that suited us and he absolutely helped us find it. I am so happy we went with him. I would definitely recommend Zuriel to other apartment hunters.

I would like to say Zuriel was very helpful and diligent with my fiancée and I finding an apt. I wouldn't say we were an easy for Zuriel to work with, but he continually found places over and over for us to see. He finally found the ideal place in Brooklyn that met all of our many wants and needs. I would recommend Zuriel to anyone who ask, as his patience and determination was appreciated.

Even though I ended up renting through another broker, Zuriel was definitely the most helpful agent I worked with during my apartment hunt. He was proactive and really got to know what I was looking for so that we didn't end up viewing spaces that didn't meet my predefined set of expectations. His ability to show relevant apartments coupled with a kind and personal business approach made him easy to work with unlike many of the other brokers I saw, who wouldn't budge on fee and were more interested in a quick/easy sale than a satisfied client. I would definitely recommend Zuriel for those looking for a trustworthy broker, trust me they are hard to find.
