With all honestly, Adam Sindeband is perhaps the best agent I worked with in finding an apartment. He is patient and willing to fight for you to get you the best apartment possible. Adam was able to find an apartment where the landlord was flexible with my financial situation.
Adam & Luis are definitely the guys you want on your side. I was a bit nervous contacting at first, because we had history with a previous broker who turned out to not really fulfill our needs. But from the start, Luis emailed back immediately on a Wednesday night & kept contact with me through the entire process. Even down to offering to pick up the rent check and help us get it to the landlord. On top of that, they both were incredibly cognizant of my study schedule during my final exams week, and made sure to get everything I needed in the midst of studying. They both answered all of my questions, and didn't hesitate to find out immediately if they didn't have an answer right then. Adam did a great job finding us an apartment that was within our budget, and that actually even had an extra bedroom. On the day of the actual apartment showings, we met Adam in his office where he discussed all of our needs. One of which was being able to find space for a golden retriever in NYC. And then he had Luis take us to the apartments. Luis did a great job of asking for what we liked/what we didn't like in each apartment, and made sure to talk us through each apartment. It's not common to find people in NYC who are just absolutely willing to help you find what you need, but are willing to go above and beyond your expectations. If you're looking for an apartment in the city, you can trust that these guys will take care of you!
Adam and Luis were great. Admittedly, I was a rookie at apartment hunting in the city, but their professional attitude and expertise set me at ease. I ended up renting a gorgeous apartment near to my job, thanks to Adam and Luis. Their priority is making sure what's best for you as a client, and when an issue with my application came up they were the first ones to jump and fix it. Definitely recommend working with them.
I was really against using a real estate broker because I had convinced myself I could, "Do it on my own!" I quickly realized that my time was worth something so I caved and reached out to Adam Sindeband at the recommendation of a friend of a friend over cocktails. Adam responded to my email almost instantly at 7 pm on a Saturday night and we made an appointment to meet in his office Monday evening. This was a little out of the ordinary but it made sense -- Rather than drag my busy bum all over the city and waste time looking at apartments that weren't a perfect fit, I would go to his office, we would discuss my budget and location needs and take it from there.
