House Owner, Landlord and at Home in Brooklyn, for me the right Place to live

I keep my European point of view and absolutely understand and know that
it's not always fun to look for a new home in this crazy Real Estate Market...

If you ever had to move, you already know about: -apartments, -service,
RIDICULOUS  APPLICATION PROCESS AND LOTS OF PAPERWORK

MY GOAL:
To guide you through this process as stress free as possible and

GET YOU APPROVED for YOUR new home

I Buy -  Renovate - Sell - Rent - Residential Homes, Commercial Spaces and Houses

I believe that an apartment should not only be a place to sleep,
it must feel like a new HOME                                                    
                                                                                                    You are very welcome, André

Overall, working with Andre was a pleasure- I contacted him after seeing a really nice apartment and to my surprise it was still available, a great deal, in a great location in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn- after seeing it with him and making a decision with in the first hour- he immediately got to work in securing us getting the apartment. He understood our situation with our current landlord and worked very hard to get us the apartment we really wanted, overcoming every single obstacle. I couldn't have asked for a better relationship with a broker and I hope to get a chance to work with Andre again. I would recommend anyone to him!

Andre A. Krist NYC&.US Responded:
Huge SORRY, you ABSOLUTLY right!

I was 10 Days in Europe and my office didn't responded to your email last Saturday.
They got an application last week and missed to email, call or text you.

Again sorry and all the Best,
Andre

Lovely to work with. Did not pressure us upon first viewing like many other brokers I have worked with in the past. Made the paper work process as transparent and easy as possible. Working with Andre was the most stress free moving experience I have had in Brooklyn.

Quick response and literally rearranged his schedule and items in his vehicle to accommodate myself and my wife when looking at 2 of his units. We only wish the units were perfect for us, and would have loved for something to have worked out, but was honest and forthright and got straight to the point. Would love to rent one of his places in the future, if something became available.

Andre was a dream come true from start to finish. I was skeptical at first at how easy and trustworthy he was, I've dealt with all the BS that the NYC rental market has to offer. The entire process was super fast and super easy. Andre was honest and flexible. Again, a dream come true. Highly, highly recommended.

Initially I wrote a good review under pressure from him to do so, since he helped me get into the apartment. (He flat out requested I write a positive review for him). The truth is, he is a broker who works for the WORST management company I have ever dealt with and does not represent that clearly. He tries to play himself off as an independent broker but he's hired by the landlord himself. He put immense pressure on me to get a guarantor because my credit was less than perfect and then demanded several years of tax returns, letters, so much information that was above and beyond necessary. Thinking the apt was what I wanted, I went along with it, stupidly. I was given the run around about fees that I had to pay and Andre misrepresented what fees I'd get back and not get back. I was bilked out of a couple hundred dollars up front. On top of that, I was told by Andre that the apt had a dishwasher. When I went to see it, it was at dusk and there was no electricity in the apt. So he gave me the tour by flashlight. I was only there for 10 minutes, enough time to see the place - and believe me - they gut renovated it a few years ago, so on the surface it looks great. But I forgot to notice where the dishwasher was. I asked him "hey I don't recall seeing a dishwasher" and he told me "yeah yeah, it's there." It wasn't until I went back to the apt, to take measurements, just before I signed the lease, that I noticed that NO, there is actually no dishwasher. When I called Andre to confront him about this, he played it off like it was an unintentional mistake, that he got the unit confused with the unit upstairs. He claimed there was nothing that could be done and now I couldn't have a dishwasher. I pushed and pushed for them to install it, he said NO, "take it or leave it." Since I was 1 day away from signing my lease, I didn't feel I could walk away over a dishwasher but something felt very off to me about this - and how dishonestly this was handled. I made a huge stink to the owner about "either I get a dishwasher or else I walk" and they at first were like "fine, walk, you know how quickly we'll have this place rented?" But eventually when I said "okay, see ya" they relented and agreed to put in a dishwasher. Andre was incredibly rude to me after that.

Once I moved into the apt, the problems began. I was without heat for over 25 days this past winter, without gas and hot water for several days. My requests for help went unanswered. I reached out to Andre and the other people from the leasing office for help - they never responded. Once the sale was made, they no longer cared. I have a mouse infestation in my kitchen, my windows don't lock and are broken. I am trying to get out of my lease because the landlord won't do basic repairs and my apt is a nightmare. And the landlord is probably going to sue me for breaking my lease. Complete nightmare. Beware of Andre and Carli Stanicker and anything on here labeled Brooklyn Rents. They are complete scam artists and will rip you off. Worst mistake I ever made. Andre is smug, arrogant, rude and works for people that are even worse. Major danger.

Needs to work on communications skills.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Andre A. Krist NYC&.US Responded:
First of all, I understand your disappointment.

You applied for a nice, huge 2BR/2Bath NO FEE
apartment, 2blocks from L-Train for only $1700 (utilities included).

We have minimum credit and income requirements,
and it turned out that you are not qualified.

You agreed in writing and during a phone conversation that you will provide a guarantor,
YOU NEVER DID (Apartment was 10 days on hold for U)

If this makes you feel better to review me like this, OK 4 ME.

I tried everything.

When I first inquired about the apartment I got a response within hours and was able to view the property that same day. Andre was professional and honest about the property and the great deal that we would get. He always made himself available via text, phone calls, and emails and if he didn't know the answer to something he would find out and get back to us right away. Working with Andre was one of the best experiences that I have had working with a broker/Realtor in NYC and I would definitely recommend him. A+++ service

Excellent professional businessman who made every effort to accommodate my requirements. Quick and courteous communications and always transparent when discussing the buildings we were looking at and what the process of applying entailed. Basically, it was a relief to work with someone as professional and good as Andre and I would recommend him to anyone looking to rent in NYC.

It's just great to work with a professional.
It such a huge difference, if you only deal with an "rental agency"
or (as in this case) with people who owne different buildings!!!
Amazing service and he absolutely knows what he is doing
and talking. Thanks!!!

Please don't hesitate to work with Andre. He is absolutely fantastic. He met us at an odd hour and happily showed us around his gorgeous apartments. Andre is open and honest and seemed to care more that we got the apartment we were looking for and less that he "sold us" on one of his units. He's friendly and completely forthcoming about what we could expect from the rental process, which is information most agents don't want to disclose. Not to mention that his apartments are pristine. We are still considering several of the options he showed us. Thank you, Andre!

Agent didn't show up to open house or respond to repeated texts and calls. Apartment ads are misleading. He advertises 1 bedroom apts that are actually small studios.

We highly recommend working with Andre. Andre's properties are absolutely beautiful and we are so excited to move into our apartment. We are highly impressed by Andre's professionalism, accommodating nature, and fast responses. He is personable and no nonsense, and he has exquisite taste and great shoes! We couldn't ask for more. Thank you Andre, for making it happen.

I had several email exchanges where I asked Andre if he had a 1 bedrooms in my price range and he seemed to never answer that question. He finally answers "yes, we have many options." I go after work to meet him at the address (Andre was down the street), where the other agent there tells me that they only have studios in my price range. When Andre comes, he tells me the 1 bedrooms in my price range had already rented. So, I am not sure why he had me come if he didn't have 1 bedrooms in my price range, especially after I asked him via email several times. He seemed nice enough, but the whole process was really annoying.

Andre A. Krist NYC&.US Responded:
I'm very sorry about this!

This is one of our prime Brownstones at Hancock St. (2Blocks from A/C Train).
I just got an application for the last 1BR, before our appointment, during an Open House.

Sometimes nice apartments are going fast if they in top location and priced right ;-)

Andre was great--professional but relaxed. He helped us find a good place for the right price but didn't pressure us into anything, even when we were a little slow getting our paperwork together. I definitely recommend him and would work with him again in the future.
