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!
Zary is THE BEST broker. This was my first experience with apartment hunting in the city and Zary made the process a breeze. I think we felt instantly at ease with her, and none of the listings she showed us disappointed. She knew exactly what we wanted and I really felt like she was the most informed broker we dealt with. She was also the most accessible and reliable-- answering calls, texts, and emails right away.
Even through some issues with our application process, Zary was great at thinking on her feet and jumped through hoops to make sure we got the apartment we wanted. Her and the whole team at Manhattan Realty work well together to get the job done. I could not have had a better experience and would highly recommend her to anyone.
My partner and I worked with Eli to rent our apartment in the UES. We met with Eli after a handful of sketchy and unpleasant experiences with other local brokers and management companies. What a difference! Eli is experienced, knowledgeable, and doesn''t waste anyone''s time. After showing us a few places that were a bit out of our price-range, he knew exactly what we were looking for and delivered on it the very next day. Our application and rental process was very smooth, and lacking in stress - something that is certainly atypical around here. Would definitely recommend Eli (and the rest of his team, if they share his professionalism and knowledge) to anyone looking for a broker and tired of the NYC nonsense.
Being a novice to the whole NYC apartment market I was definitely nervous going into my search. However, I had the amazing fortune to come across Jason Polanco. Jason listened to what I wanted, my needs and my time constraints. He was so friendly and helpful, always answering any and all questions I had no matter if they seemed ridiculous or not. He came up with suggestions and sent me floor plans to help me. He definitely was on my side and wanted to help me find my new home. What set Jason apart from any other broker in my eyes was he called me to tell me about an apt he knew I would love that had everything I was looking for and was in my budget only problem was he wasn''t in the area at the time to show it to me. However, this did not stop him instead he had an associate of his meet me, Erez (shout out to Erez who was also wonderful!) so I wouldn''t miss out. Ultimately, I got that apt and I couldn''t be more grateful. Jason helped me and I definitely recommend anyone needing help with their search to look him up, he''s awesome!
