I should start off with providing some background. I was on the hunt for an unrealistic apartment, too many amenities with a very limited budget. Francisco was not only able to find my roommate and I 1 apartment that we fell in love with on Park Ave but a second great apartment as a back up! We saw an apartment on Super Bowl Sunday and found out we were approved the Wednesday after, very quick and seamless process. Francisco has great apartment inventory, is very smart and helpful during the entire process up until the day I moved. I immediately recommended Francisco to help a good friend find an apartment and she got a place the same day! If you're looking for a nice, trustworthy broker, call Francisco - you will not be disappointed!
Francisco was an INCREDIBLE broker. I''d never done apartment hunting before, so I came into the process pretty uneducated - and as a result, likely easy to take advantage of. But throughout the process, Francisco made it very clear that if I told him everything we were looking for and our price range, he''d show me spaces perfect for our criterion.
He set up several viewings, and as we viewed, he developed a stronger idea of exactly what we were looking for. Sure enough, the place he had been saying he thought would be perfect for us ended up being, well, perfect for us! He sat with us through the meeting with the property management, and even helped us get a cheaper deal so that we could afford the building''s fitness center.
Overall, fantastic experience. Really suggest working with this group.
Joshua Rodriguez is hands down THE BEST broker in the city. Here is the reason why:
1. He is on your side, fighting together with you to get that dream apartment with the best price. This is important and it actually makes a difference. I negotiated with landlord for a lower rent, Joshua helped me out finding ways to cut the price lower.
2. He listens carefully to the client, carefully select all the apartments meet the requirements, and knows how to plan the route smartly. After telling him the features I want and my budget, Joshua searched for all the availables, eventually found 10, called to book appointments and planned our route well so we don''t need to waste time and energy to go back and forth.
3. He is a very patient and easy going person. I was tired of speaking to snobbish brokers in the city, or those who promised to call back but never did. Finally I met Joshua, he is genuinely a very kind and patient person. While I was being indecisive, he patiently waited and offer honest and helpful suggestions.
4. He respond quickly to msg, emails and phone calls. Efficiency is the key!
After a week''s hard work together, I finally nailed down my dream apartment. Would never get it without Joshua''s help!!
My roommates and I were working with a broker from another firm when I got in touch with Zary at MRG. We had put an application on an apartment that ultimately fell through because the other broker was so incompetent. Zary was extremely helpful, not only in finding the right place based on our needs, but she saved the day during the paperwork process by tracking down my accountant who had seemingly disappeared when we needed a CPA letter at the last minute. Very rarely do you reflect on an experience with a broker and believe that it was worth it, but with MRG, my roommates and I agree it was money well spent. We couldn''t be happier with our place!
