I rented an apartment with Joe Brikman a year ago. The second floor of his own house. I signed the lease, got my keys and started my life there with 4 other room-mates. Less than a year after my initial move in, Joe kicked us ALL out our place. We were out within two weeks. NONE of my room mates or I got our deposit back. He played "radio-silence" once we were gone. My room-mates and I have been texting him, sending him emails he keeps ignoring. Then I went on the Lang Realty yelp page, which he is an agent for, and we realized that we are not the only one he scammed, and he has a reputation of disappearing once you're supposed to get your advances / fees / deposit back. DO NOT WORK with this guy !

If I could give this broker less than one star, I would. I arranged a tour with Joe and confirmed our meeting twice beforehand. On the day I was supposed to see the apartment, I traveled to the building with my husband from Queens to Brooklyn, which was a trip that took us more than an hour. We arrived on time, and when I texted Joe to let him know we were there, I got a response that said, "Sorry an emergency came up, but you can let yourselves in." This text came while we were already in front of the apartment after confirming with him ONE HOUR BEFORE that we could do a tour. I understand that emergencies come up, but if you're a broker, you should at least have some common courtesy and let your client know that you're canceling on them! Do NOT work with this broker; he is extremely unprofessional.

Reached out to Joe to schedule an apartment viewing and heard back the same day. At the appointment, Joe was on time and answered all of my questions. The apartment was exactly the same as online and it was amazing. We decided to take it and Joe drove us to his office to put down the deposit and apply. Joe let us know the same day that we were approved. He explained the 1 month broker feee and application fee. He seems upright and honest. I am signing the lease in a few days- so far so good! Thanks Joe!

After initially returning my call about my inquiry into an apartment and setting up an appointment, he told me to call him back an hour before meeting to view the place. I called, no answer, no nothing. Not even a simple "it's been taken off the market." Just blatantly ignoring my calls. This guy should have whatever licenses he has revoked. He's flakey, dishonest, and discourteous. People like him shouldn't be dealing in matters concerning something so important as housing.

Agent responded initially but when I responded and let him know when I was available to view the apartment he was unresponsive and I never heard from him again.

Worst realty experience in 10 years of NYC renting. Agent Joe Brikman falsely advertised an apartment as no-fee on the Lang Realty website, StreetEasy, NakedApartments, and Craigslist. My boyfriend and I viewed and loved the unit. Prior to making our deposit, we verbally confirmed the apartment was no-fee, and Joe lied to our faces. He took 24 hours to email us the application, and we took 48 hours to complete it with all of our guarantor’s paperwork, during which Joe was harassing. All of his communications were rude, but we thought he was working for the landlord rather than us and that they were expediting the process, so we didn’t complain. After being rushed to submit supporting documents, approval took over a week, at which point Joe demanded to keep our deposit as an undisclosed fee for himself. Unprofessional and unpleasant.

Yup, ALL the reviews are true. All. Beware. Also beware of other agents affiliated with this company. Levi is just as bad. Everything is just bad. Bad. bad. bad.
