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 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!
I leased a studio in Murray Hill with Jason Polanco. He''s very professional, and was especially eager to go the extra mile to help me secure a place on a tight deadline while I was out-of-pocket during the signing process. Here''s why you should entrust Jason with your rental search:
1) He is super friendly and down to earth, conscientious (he remembered a few days later a concern I had about one of the many places we visited), respectful, VERY patient, and detail-minded.
2) He is lightning-quick in responding to communication.
3) He showed me a number of apartments, all in my budget and according to what I was looking for.
4) Jason was upfront with the price and concessions he could get me, and tried his best to get me the lowest possible rent.
5) Manhattan Realty Group has good working relations with the landlords and leasing offices around the area.
6) Their staff are very gregarious and not at all aggressive or pushy.
With NY rentals, the more transparent, timely, and hassle-free, the better. I cannot imagine a smoother real estate experience, nor a better agent. Go with Jason and MRG especially if you are looking in the Midtown East area!
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!
