Hakeem is a great agent and I highly recommend working with him. He has helped me with two apartments now, and I recommended him to my co worker who also got a place from Hakeem. He is extremely polite, helpful, and understands the needs of individual renters. He is quick to respond to all questions and needs you may have. Hakeem definitely goes the extra mile for his clients. Highly recommend working with him!

This review has bee na long time coming, but I can't recommend Hakeem highly enough! He was professional, courteous, knowledgable, helpful and understanding! I looked at a few apartments in Fort Greene Brooklyn and Hakeem was by far the best agent I worked with. I was honest with him from the start about all my details and preferences and I am very very picky and Hakeem was completely understanding. I did not feel like I was annoying him, and he had great relationships and was responsive in helping me attempt to negotiate with the Landlord when I had asked.

I have had negative experiences with agents before, as everyone in NY seems to have: however Hakeem was very very positive and a pleasure to work with. He was direct, honest, no frills, yet also very friendly. Thank you Hakeem!

Hakeem was absolutely fantastic to work with. He was extremely professional while still making me feel comfortable throughout the entire process; always communicating what was going on, answering practically immediately to text messages and phone calls, and always making sure I was getting the most accurate information as to what was going on. I could not have asked for a better broker, and I will go back to him for help in the search of future apartments.

After dealing with a lot of different brokers in the city, Hakeem was incredibly responsive and professional. He made the process of applying for an apartment easy and efficient and made us feel like he was looking out for our best interests as well as those of the landlord. I would absolutely recommend working with him.

Hakeem was great to work with. Blazingly fast, super reliable. Took the initiative to send me photos and ads for a multitude of apartments, but I didn't even need them because the first one I saw was great and we took it. And nothing against the local conglomerates, but if I'm working with a realtor, I'd rather pay a local guy who knows the neighborhood, and who the landlords trust. Excited about the new place!

Hakeem was very detail oriented and communicative throughout our entire experience with him. He responded to our emails promptly and alway explained everything that we needed to know throughout the process. We've just rented our apartment from him in Ft. Greene and were very pleased with our decision to work with him. I would highly recommend him to others.

Hakeem is wonderful to work with! All of his glowing reviews online are accurate and well deserved. He is very professional, always responded to emails and texts promptly, arrived on time for the showing, very helpful and patient. Answered all of our questions and concerns. I highly recommend him, and would definitely work with him again in the future. Thank you Hakeem!

My experience with Hakeem was hands down the best experience I've had with a broker. He was very responsive in setting up times to meet and answered all of my questions (even the dumb ones).

He knew the area well and knew the landlord well and really didn't waste any time without being pushy. He let me know my options and the process upfront so nothing was surprising.

Hakeem is still helpful (with more dumb questions of mine) now that I've signed the lease and have moved in.

I was very fortunate to find Hakeem. He's incredibly responsive (responded to my texts/emails almost immediately) and very trustworthy. I appreciated that he didn't "sell" me any apartments and was very transparent throughout the entire process.

After a long, painful apartment hunt in which we dealt with quite a few tactless, scheming, and dishonest brokers, finding Hakeem was absolutely a dream. He was courteous, honest, and made the entire experience of renting an apartment -- which is always full of so much anxiety -- so much more straightforward and easy. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone, and I am so thankful for his professionalism throughout our business with him.

Finding an apartment in the city was a pleasurable experience - is not something you hear often in the city. But working with Hakeem this was the case.

He was extremely professional, timely, well organized and most importantly honest, add to that a well sized 1 br in Fort Greene at a good price and you've struck gold.

I would highly urge anyone looking for a new flat in NYC or Bklyn to get in touch.

It doesn't surprise me how many 5 Star and positive reviews Hakeem has received. If there were room for a 6th star, I'd check that box. Glad there's room for another review. Here's mine.

Get in touch with Hakeem now. Don't wait to read the end of this if you're looking for a place to live. Contact him this instant. Do you know how fast real estate moves in NYC? And in Brooklyn, forgedaboudit!

Hakeem's knowledge and many years-long relationships with tenants and building owners- who clearly love, trust, and rely on him to deliver "the perfect landlord-tenant match"- give him a serious advantage.

Hakeem had all the patience in the world with my fiancé and I as we told him what we were looking and hoping for. He paid attention to us. He listened. He showed us a few places and keep doing that. He didn't give up on us.

Here's a magical thing he told us while we were in an apartment which was nice, but the bedroom was a bit too small: "If you can hang in there, there's an apartment that's going to be available soon. If you're interested, I'll let you know about it. I think you'd like it."

We said, "You bet!"

He did contact us a few weeks later, just as promised.

He never even put that apartment on the market. From the meetings he'd had with us and his relationship with the landlord- and because he's Hakeem(!)- he knew we would all be a good fit.

On Aug. 1st 2015, we're moving into a garden-level rental apartment in a brownstone on a gorgeous street in Fort Greene- with a private garden at a price that was within our budget.

Hakeem more than came to bat for us, he hit a grand slam. We'll always be grateful.

Hakeem was AWESOME. We got our first apartment in New York with a different broker through Naked Apartments, and it was a terrible experience. With Hakeem, the process was completely transparent, communicative, fast, and friendly. Thanks so much Hakeem!! :)

Hakeem helped us with our first experience apartment hunting in New York. He was polite, punctual, and always available via call or text. He is an honest and laid-back guy, and we really felt like he had our backs during the process. He drove us to the bank when we had a tight window for getting money together for our lease signing, and he drove to the city from his home in CT to give us our keys on the day we moved in. He made the entire process--from searching to signing to moving in--less stressful. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
