Hands-down the best.
My roommate and I reached out to Alberto based on a listing we found on Naked Apartments. We laid out our specs - max rent, nearby train lines, what we wanted in a landlord, building, and super, where we wanted to be -- and a couple days later, we were meeting up at his office, then running around Brooklyn in his car looking at a whole bunch of listings -- many of which were terrific, and none of which were out of our price range.
On the very first day of viewing, we found not one but TWO great places, and spent the night deliberating which we wanted to pursue.
We'll be moving into the one for which we applied (rent stabilized, no less!) in a few days, and it's entirely thanks to Alberto. His enthusiasm and energy are boundless, his knowledge of neighborhoods and landlords is solid, his work ethic is unbelievable, and he both found for us and secured for us the apartment we wanted -- he's the guy. Coming from someone who's had crummy, shady broker experiences in the past - Alberto is the picture of what renting with a broker should be like.
I rented an apartment from this agent.
Even though I didn't rent an apartment from Alberto, he still made a lasting impression on me and I would recommend him to anyone who is in search for an apartment in the Brooklyn area. He responded to my inquiry very quickly, and sent over some listings for us to visit the next day. He ended up driving us around for hours looking at many apartments! Alberto was even kind enough to act as a tour guide through Brooklyn since I was new to the city, and suggested places to eat/visit. He was very caring and attentive to what I was looking for. Alberto genuinely focuses his attention on you, and is not on the phone contacting other clients. On top of his patience, he was thorough and professional. There are not enough positive words to describe Alberto. He was great to work with!
