If you're not familiar with the Kensington/Ditmas Park section of Brooklyn, I strongly recommend you take the time to check it out! You will be glad you did! Here is what $1800 gets you in this neighborhood:
*HUGE Living room and Bedroom
*New Kitchen Appliances with Granite Countertops
*Gas Stove/Oven plus a Built-In Microwave
*Heat & Hot Water Included
*Elevator Building with On-site Super
*Laundry Room in Building *Youtube video tour available on request
If you were to place this same apartment, with its numerous closets and large living spaces, in downtown Manhattan, you could expect to pay $3000 [or more] per month. Park Slope? Maybe $2500.
AND SO... if you're willing to ride a few more subway stops - to either the Ditmas F Train or the Cortelyou Q Express Train - you will discover a developing neighborhood that's wonderfully diverse, a bit more residential, and a respite from the hectic, crowded streets of the more "prime" neighborhoods.
According to the Not For Tourists web site, "Cortelyou Road, the main drag, has become something of the new Park Slope - - blending cosmopolitan eating and drinking establishments with a family-friendly, residential quality on the side streets."

Tim was very responsible and honest guy. I could trust him and he answered all my questions quickly. The best part that I liked him was that I could tell he was enjoying his job and help people finding the best apartment. He wants to make people happy! I can totally recommend him to all my friends!

Tim responded to my initial inquiry very quickly and was willing to work with my schedule (was moving from out of state). He was always responsive throughout the process and was quick to answer any and all questions I had. I contacted many brokers in the Brooklyn area who either never responded or were very rude. Tim is courteous and knowledgeable and I would recommend him to others. Even though the broker fee can be very expensive, it's nice to know you will at least get your questions answered and Tim will go out of his way to help.
