Highly unprofessional agent. First, before anything, he required that I have bank statements, pay stubs, id, and tax return in hand during a showing! I have not even met him nor has he performed any task and there he was asking me for my personal information. I brushed this off and decided to give him a chance. It was a big mistake.

I ended up scheduling a meeting for Saturday at 11AM to view an apartment. He said he would show me three different places within a half-hour, so I thought great. I showed up at the place, which was a 30 minute drive for me, on time with Winston no where to be found. I thought he might be showing another place so I waited. I texted him at 11:05 with no response. I then called him at 11:15. The phone rung twice and then went to voicemail. I called him again with the same result. I left a voicemail and he never got back to me. He is a waste of time and I would highly avoid him. Oh, and if he responds to this refuting my claim, you can message me at naked apartments. I have the screenshots of the messages and calls, and his emails that I can provide. My guess is that all the positive reviews are family or friends.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Winston Maragh Responded:
Unfair review. First, I simply informed him of the paperwork needed to rent an apartment & told him to be prepared (standard info). Second, we never confirmed our appointment. When we first spoke he was OUT OF STATE and was unsure of when he could meet, so I asked for tentative time & date just to get him to commit somewhat. We NEVER even set a meeting place (I dont know where he claimed to have went to meet me). A simple meeting confirmation would have solve this issue. (char limit)

I emailed several agents about listings and he was the first to respond (within seconds). He also quickly responded with other listings in the area/price range I was looking. Every time I had a question or comment he responded within a few minutes. His knowledge of the area was extensive. He intuitively knew what I would and wouldn't like after we saw the first unit. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking in Brooklyn Heights.

We love Winston! We couldn't have asked for a better agent—he's friendly, courteous, super-knowledgeable, and very quick to respond to any of our messages, even after we'd moved in. If you're looking for a home, he can definitely help!

This guy scheduled to show me the apartment I respond to. When he arrived a half hour late he informed me that the apartment was already rented. He then wanted to show me an apartment "only 9 blocks away" in a completely different neighborhood. I told him he had wasted my time and I left.

Winston Maragh Responded:
Unfair review! I cannot control when an apartment gets rented! I was also very much on time (waited an half hour? really?). I offered another unit (similiar price) approx 4 blocks away (from Washington/Lincoln to Washington/Carroll in Prospect/Crown Heights). It was a reasonable option in the immediate area and about the same space. FYI, the apartment had a washer/dryer and was gut renovated.

Winston is the best agent I've ever worked with.

He helped my girlfriend and I find a great place. He was a true gentleman through the entire process, and never pushy (which was a refreshing change from the other agents we'd spoken to throughout our apartment search). He worked hard on our behalf when it came time to submit our application.

Highly recommended!

I contact him on Monday to see an apartment that was listed. He responded immediately and we agreed on meeting Thursday at 11 AM. He told me he had many apartments in Brooklyn Heights and that he can show me all of them.

I sent him an email on Wednesday to reconfirmed the appointment and so he send me the address where we should meet. Never answered. Called him on Thursday 9 AM, two hours before our appointment. No answer. Sent him a phone message. No answer. One hour before our appointment he sent me an email that ALL the apartments that he was going to show me were already rented, BUT he has some in Prospect Heights and Fort Green.

Very unprofessional. Please Winston, don't waste people's time. If the apartments that you listed are not available anymore say that from the first time, don't use it as a hook for renting other apartments that people don't want.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Winston Maragh Responded:
This is an unfair review with an incorrect timeline. Our appointment was scheduled over a week in advance, and I only got a confirmation from Lucia the night before our appointment. Obviously I cannot hold an apartment for days/weeks at a time. Apartments do get rented. In trying to be helpful, I suggested currently available units that are on the market. These units were in the same neighborhood and adjacent neighborhood (a few blocks away or near the border).

Great broker. Super knowledgeable and pleasant, follows up and stays on track without being pushy or difficult. Showed us some great properties. Absolutely going to recommend to friends and reach out to him again when looking in the area.

Winston was a pleasure to work with. He was responsive, courteous, professional, and helpful along the way. We didn’t end up renting with him only because our Landlord made us an offer we couldn’t refuse. I highly recommend him.

Winston and I met in my desired neighborhood and he showed me a wide range of spaces before quickly finding exactly what I was looking for. He was a great listener and very attentive to my wishes, I couldn't ask for more.

Winston never showed up to the appointments we scheduled. He didn't answer my call after I told him I was on a tight schedule and promised he would be there. When I initially spoke to him on the phone, he didn't know anything about the apartments I was inquiring about. If, you're a broker shouldn't you know basic things like sq footage walk up or elevator, dogs allowed, closet space, etc.... clearly, this job isn't cut out for winston. I would give him zero stars if I could for completely wasting my time and I wouldn't recommend him at all.
