When I contacted Fatma I let her know of my expectations and was very specific. Especially my most important prerequisite that I wanted a fully renovated apartment with outdoor space. Had other items on the list that wanted, but specifically required everything new. We saw a couple of apartments. The real estate market is one that is not in favor of the renters and is first come first serve. She found me the most beautiful apartment with ample space in the Upper West Side. I loved it, however, wanted to see my other options available. When I was ready to apply to the apartment and provided all my paperwork, unfortunately the apartment was no longer available. Fatma was very honest and upfront with me. I really enjoyed that, as there are many real estate agents that are dishonest and just want to earn a buck. Fatma wanted to keep working on finding me my dream home. A couple of days after she showed me another apartment that was nothing short of my expectations and I felt this is the one. We put the application through immediately and the second time I got it. Fatma was very helpful and patient with me as I can be a very demanding person. My experience with her was nothing short of amazing. She found me my new home. Would recommend her always to my family and friends.

Fatma was amazing! From the second I emailed her she responded to me and we started the search. I was unsure if I wanted to live uptown, downtown, East side, West Side. I am Libra - I could never decide! She helped me narrow down my search, and really helped pinpoint my needs within my budget. I never felt pressured, she had a very hands on approach but also made me feel like I could still breathe! Meeting and having Fatma help me was worth every penny. She is very talented at what she does and I would highly recommend her.

I contacted Fatma K. after I read her reviews here! And I was talking to so many other brokers and they didn't sound very promising. I emailed her after work hours and she responded my email right away! I was very surprised its way pretty late! I told her exactly what I was looking and my price range and the area that i wanted to be she took me out the next day after work and showed me amazing couple options . And I decided to move forward the apartment I LOVE! It's was very hard to make a decision for me because she showed me an amazing apartments! On the other hands other agents tired to show me stuff that waay over my budget.

Fatma is really kind,honest and very professional and she knows exactly what she is doing.. I just moved from Chicago and planing to buy apt next year.. I am definitely using Fatma's friendly service. Thank you so much for all your help.
You're the really BEST!!!

Fatma did an exceptional job in finding apartment in Manhattan. She is very kind and pleasant to work with. She is also very honest person which prevented me to waste my time and avoid frustration. Because everyone knows how stressful it can be to find an apartment in nyc. We gave her our criteria for the apartment and she found apartments accordingly, and all we have to do is to see the apartment and sign the lease, so I and my husband are very glad that we met Fatma as our real estate agent. Thank you again.

Fatma Kara Responded:
Hi Julio,
I am not sure, when did you email me, i have never got your email, and i see that you are looking for one bedroom for $1,100 a month. I DO NOT advertise any apartments at that price! I think you had mistake here. If you can change your review, i would be appreciate that!

Thank you
Fatma

First of all, I think everyone who has been through the NYC rental market knows how stressful this can be. Although I ended up staying at my current apt, I felt that Fatma went above and beyond her call of duty. Her enthusiasm and responsiveness to emails/texts were top notch. But more than anything, she is a kind and caring soul that makes the search for an apt in this concrete jungle a little more pleasant. I highly highly recommend her to anyone and will definitely contact her if and when I need to move again. Thank you for everything.

Fatma was amazing to work with. She is kind and very responsive. She made what has otherwise been a pretty stressful process enjoyable and exciting! Fatma had many great apartments to show me and took a lot of care to only show me listings that met my requirements. Fatma was patient and walked me through every step of the process. Really, I couldn't have asked for anyone better and I recommend her highly! Though I hope not to be looking for another apartment soon, next time I am looking I will definitely be calling Fatma! Thank you, Fatma! <3 jenny

Fatma was amazing!!! From the very first email to the moment I was handed the keys, Fatma answered every single question I had within minutes, and with intelligence, kindness and humor! I am so grateful to have found her! And it was all of the 5 star reviews that convinced me to speak with her in the first place! She earns every star!!! I needed to start my apartment search from Louisiana, and I needed to find a place that we could move into within 15 days, and with a low budget! No easy task, but she found us exactly what we were looking for, and under budget!!! I would highly recommend Fatma to anyone looking for a NYC apartment, and actually already have given her name to several friends!! Thank you, Fatma! We couldn't have done it without you!!!

Fatma was very patient, polite and helpful. She always answered my questions quickly and scored visits at convenient times. I did not rent an apartment, because I chose another option, but I appreciate her support!

Fatma was a pleasure to work with through the entire apartment-hunting process. She immediately responded to all of my emails/calls, and was very amenable with regards to meeting times, apartment showings. When my roommate and I decided to make an offer, she was very straightforward with all the details/particulars, and we found ourselves with an apartment that met every one of our needs in a matter of days. It's always daunting to find an affordable apartment in Manhattan without compromising a lot in the quality department, but Fatma can (and did for us) make this happen quite painlessly

It's simple: Fatma made my and my roommate's UES dreams come true. We had few requests (equal-sized bedrooms, a small living room, decent budget). While two other agents failed us for nearly a month and could only talk the talk, Fatma delivered within a matter of days. Her honesty was refreshing, and I can't thank her enough for finding (and fighting for) our newly rented apartment.

We happened to end up renting from Fatma by coincidence, and I'm so glad we did! The guy we were looking with before was a sleazy liar. Fatma answered all of our questions and was very flexible. She ended up finding us a really cute apartment on the UES that is convenient and within our price range.

Although I didn't rent from Fatma, she was extremely nice, understood my needs, and truly seemed to have an upper hand in the market. She was always quick to respond and was never pushy.

Fatma is the best agent I've ever met. Actually my friend and I have a budget which makes us really difficult to find an apartment in Manhattan. Thanks to Fatma, we finally find an apartment in UES. Great location! Satisfy all our needs and Cheap!!! Fatma actually knows almost every layout of the apartments she has and according to our requirements, she provides professional advice. She is very considerate and saves us a lot of time. I'm so glad to find Fatma!!!
