Thank you Marlon 5 Stars!!!! DO NOT HESITATE TO REACH OUT TO MARLON. He locked down my apartment within 5 hours in Midtown West in a great luxury building that had every single amenity I was looking for within my budget. Thanks again!!
Mercer Real Estate went above and beyond to find me my incredible apartment in FIDI. I needed a apartment within the first week of the New Year and Marlon was able to lock my apartment down just in time to start my new job on Wall Street. Marlon was a great communicator, very clear and him and his team were able to get me a great deal. I will be referring all my friends and colleagues to Mercer Real Estate going further so happy with the results!
Thank you Marlon for locking down my beautiful apartment in the heart of the West Village to start off the New Year!! I'm so happy I connected through Marlon on RentHop.. I will 1000% use him again next year!!
I would highly recommend Mercer Real Estate for their apartment hunt. I had a wonderful experience with Marlon who helped me to find my first apartment in New York. I was relocating to NY for a new job and was unfamiliar with the real estate in the city. Marlon, having grown up in Manhattan, was an expert in suggesting which neighborhoods would suit young professionals. Marlon was very supportive of my NY apartment checklist, but was also realistic about expectations on finding the perfect apartment.
After a 2-day hunt (one being in the snow), Marlon helped me to find a beautiful apartment in Midtown West, which was a quick commute to work. I appreciated that he continually spoke with apartment's broker to make sure that I landed the place. He was quick to follow up me on updates and paperwork to get me to the next steps of renting. I could not have found this place without Marlon & Mercer Real Estate!
We recently had the pleasure of working with Marlon, from Mercer Real Estate in our search for an apartment in NYC. Marlon was extremely responsive and shared her knowledge of the NYC market.
He was able to find apartments that matched our list of requirements and made the process fun and low-pressure.
It was great working with him and we would highly recommend him as your broker if you are looking for a place in New York City.
We were looking to purchase an apartment in Manhattan, preferably in Chelsea, and called upon Marlon and his team to see what was available. Marlon was awesome in lining up viewings that we requested and others we hadn't even considered, but were super helpful. We found our dream apartment with his help and Marlon negotiated the terms of our contract like the professional he is, and also connected us with an excellent lawyer to handle the closing.
Marlon is the whole package: smart, funny, on-point, a great listener, hard-working, very knowledgeable, and just really enjoyable to work with on a real estate search. I would 100% recommend Marlon Browar and his team at Mercer to anyone interested in finding real estate in New York City.
Working with Marlon and his team at Mercer Real Estate was incredible. While most brokers constantly pressure you into a decision, often showing you 4/5 apartments with the goal of only showing you 1 that you might actually be interested in, Marlon did none of that.
He was extremely open to what I wanted, and showed me all over the city. He is extremely knowledgable and helped me really get my bearings on the city as a whole.
When I finally found an apartment I loved, Marlon was extremely helpful in securing it - working hard to make things happen.
Marlon is fantastic, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to move!
Marlon is an excellent broker and helped my roommate and I find an apartment in Chelsea that met our requirements. He accommodated our work schedules and kept us updated via text message of the whole process.
To ensure that my roommate could see the unit in person, Marlon stayed an additional hour past the scheduled showing time (6pm) so that they could make it after a work meeting. In order to facilitate a quick move in, he also coordinated with the building owner to get improvements to the flex bedroom unit installed within a short timeframe and locked down the apartment for us!
Had a great experience working with Marlon at Mercer Real Estate. He was incredibly friendly, helpful, and helped us work with an extremely difficult broker in order to secure a lease on a great co-op.
By far the best experience I've had with an NYC broker!
I have nothing but good things to say about Marlon's team. Moving in Manhattan is stressful and irritating not to mention confusing. You go to Streeteasy and end up with 30 different brokers calling about apartments that look nothing like the pictures. I am really glad I met Marlon.
He was very professional and thoughtful, not pushy at all like most brokers I dealt with prior to meeting him. I highly recommend Marlon and his team, they have great listings and are extremely professional. It's really nice to know that in this jungle of madness there is a reliable team of brokers you can count on.
Marlon was an absolute pleasure to work with. Marlon is a true New Yorker and knows the lay of the land better than any brokers i've worked with. He made each step of the renting process hassle-free, efficient and most importantly, enjoyable.
If you are looking to work with someone who is honest, flexible and smart, I would highly recommend Marlon. He found my roommate and me a beautiful apartment in the West Village at a much lower cost than others. It was a true pleasure working with him..
Apartment hunting in NYC can be an absolute nightmare, but if you work with Marlon can actually be pleasant. I contacted him via MercerRealEstate.com about an amazing listing in the West Village, and we were very pleasantly taken aback that the listing photos were real.
We've been fooled by the classic NYC bait-and-switch several times prior to meeting with Marlon, and it was truly very refreshing to work with someone who was so genuine and professional. He's very responsive via phone and email, and as a resident of the West Village himself he had a ton of recommendations and advice to help us make our move as seamless as possible. Would highly recommend him and his team!
I had a awesome experience working with Marlon to secure a great apartment in Midtown West. The entire process took less than a week and Marlon was very professional in terms of making sure that we had all the required documents ready in a timely manner. He's very responsive even during the weekend (we applied for the apartment during a long weekend).
My boyfriend and I were moving to New York from San Francisco and did not have much time to figure out our living situation.
All we knew is we had to relocate to Manhattan and wanted to check out places within our budget in a few areas.
I emailed Marlon and he got back to me within 10 minutes and was so helpful in explaining the process and listened to all of our top needs. The following week when we arrived in Manhattan for a two day business/housing search trip, he had lined up so many options within the time constrictions we gave him for both days. Despite our limited time, Marlon hustled for us big time and showed us so many places we would actually consider living in and being happy at. I was so utterly impressed with his attention to detail and hard efforts he put into making our lives easier. I had experienced another agent in NY that was really abrasive, and was clearly not looking out for our best interest so we were so fortunate to have met someone who was willing to bat for us and devoted so much time to our needs. We highly recommend Marlon because he found us what we needed and on top of all that is so knowledgable and professional.
We are hoping to do more business with Marlon in the future as well when we look to buy next!
Marlon Browar is a broker who will actually listens to his clients. He doesn't try to up your price point, he doesn't force exclusive listings on you, and he will pound the pavement to find the right place (even if it is a needle in a haystack). He is extremely responsive throughout the process.
Following my very positive experience with Mercer Real Estate and Marlon, I have recommended him to a number of other friends. They report similarly outstanding service. Would recommend without hesitation..
I am extremely grateful that i was able to find someone so effective and patient like Marlon. He helped find the perfect unit that met all my needs.
Not only did Marlon answered all my questions or met me whenever I was available; he understood exactly what I was looking for. He is very professional, responds to calls/emails quickly and has a great attitude about everything. I highly recommend Marlon and his team at Mercer Real Estate!
Marlon was so incredibly helpful and knowledgeable from start to finish. He was a true pleasure to work with and made our apartment search not only effortless, but enjoyable. After sub par experiences with other brokers, Marlon is on a different level. Once he took over, finding an apartment was a breeze. We knew we could trust him and ended up with our dream apartment. We were sad to say bye to him once his job was done! I would use Marlon and Mercer Real Estate again in a heartbeat and will be recommending him to anyone I know in need.
I've gone through several apartment searches in Manhattan, and 1) it's really difficult to find good apartments for a reasonable price, 2) it's not always pleasant to work with brokers. I'm leaving my first ever RentHop review for Marlon Browar because he not only helped me and my boyfriend find the PERFECT apartment for a great price (after we had researched hundreds of apartments on our own for the past few weeks and failed to find anything we both liked), but he was also by far the best broker I've worked with and absolutely deserves 5 stars.
Marlon stands out from other brokers due to his exceptional versatility, responsiveness, and ability to understand your needs. I have worked with other good brokers, but Marlon is the only one I would actively recommend to friends because he consistently goes above and beyond. I am someone who always has too many questions and I often hold back from asking everything, but Marlon immediately and thoroughly answered all of my many questions no matter what time of day it was. I felt comfortable enough to ask away, and he was often perceptive enough to give us extra information even when I didn't ask, if it was relevant to our search. He even proactively filmed a video of the apartment we liked during the day so we could see how much sunlight it got, since we couldn't make it to the apartment in person during weekday work hours and didn't want to risk waiting until the weekend to make a decision.
Marlon really cares about making all parties happy, and as a result, he felt more like a friend than a broker throughout the entire process. By the end of our apartment search, we were more than happy to pay the broker's fee, and Marlon has continued to stay in touch after we signed for the apartment to make sure we have everything we need. Thank you Marlon for a wonderful apartment and experience!
I worked with Marlon of Mercer Real Estate who did an amazing job showing me great 1 BR Apts that fit my needs and budget in NYC. I ended up selecting a great apartment with awesome amenities.
I'd definitely work with Marlon and Mercer Real Estate again!
Marlon is extremely kind, efficient and patient. I have been looking for months to what I envision to have as my next apartment in NYC with my boyfriend and I. Because of him I now have my DREAM new place and I could not be more grateful to have had him as my broker. He never gives up and his persistence will continue to bless him with endless success. He has the best units on the market and he will help you find exactly what you are seeking. I would highly recommend him to anyone :)
I wholeheartedly recommend Marlon Browar's services. He has helped us two years in a row find our rental apartment.
He is responsive, diligent and answers all our questions and concerns thoroughly. Joe also was a great communicator. Aside from the hard work he did for us, he is just a genuine good person who is also a pleasure to work with and be around.
It was a great pleasure working with Marlon. He was very professional and responsive, answering all our questions and facilitating communication with landlords. He set up last minute showings almost immediately and persisted to find us the best apartment. He was also able to help us negotiate the rent as well!
Overall, our experience working with Marlon couldn't have been better and we would definitely recommend him for anyone else looking for a broker!
Marlon is an exceptional broker in the New York City market. He is trustworthy, responsive, but perhaps most importantly adaptable to your preferences and desires as far as meeting times, communications and housing types.
Most of all, I give Marlon credit for being incredibly patient. We must've looked at over a dozen places before seeing the correct spot.
I recommend Marlon and his firm Mercer Real Estate with the utmost confidence - and urge you to consider him for your home buying/renting needs in New York City.
I can't say enough good things about Marlon and his brokerage Mercer Real Estate
Everything was thoroughly explained to me as we went along, and never once was I pressured into anything that was out of my budget, or didn't meet requirements. As a result I felt comfortable accepting some key recommendations during several offers. Many agents in NYC would have taken advantage of that amount of latitude; Marlon did not.
If you are looking for an upstanding, intelligent, and exceptionally reasonable broker to help you with your NY real estate transaction, look no further.
I can't say enough good things about Marlon and his team. I was very budget oriented during my search and hugely unfamiliar with the NY real estate pitfalls (aside from renting...buying is a whole different ballgame) - they did a tremendous job keeping me competitive in the market and walking me through the process.

A fantastic, painless experience renting for the first time in New York through Marlon. I began the process with little idea of what I was looking for besides a short commute and a budget, and only had a weekend in the city to find a place. But Marlon helped me figure out the best neighborhoods to look in, then took care of all the legwork ahead of time to line up lots of great options for me to see while I was in town. While I was in the city, he made sure I got to know the neighborhoods I was considering, answered all my questions along the way, and was incredibly transparent, responsive, and patient in helping me find the ideal place to live.
In the end I found a perfect apartment, and I was amazed by how seamless the whole experience was, from initial communication through signing. Highly recommend the Mercer team!
Marlon and his team were incredible to collaborate with and we got an apartment on our first day of looking. We saw a great mix of places and decided on the last one, as it was perfect for what we were looking for.
Marlon was extremely helpful with the paperwork side of things and was very easy to communicate with before and after our search.
I met Marlon through a recommendation of a friend who was a past client of his.
Marlon was extremely helpful in my search for a 3 Bedroom in Chelsea. Start to finish, we only worked together for about a week, that is how fast we found our current apartment.
From the start, he was professional, responsive and understanding of what we were looking for. We went through the basics and discussed what was important to me - staying at/under maximum rent, neighborhood, subways, etc. When we went to look at apartments, Marlon had a number of apartments for us to see together. During each one, he helped me with questions and also gave me some ideas of how I could make each place my own. We found a winner that same day and Marlon helped me get the application started and kept in touch throughout the application/approval process. When it came time to sign the lease, Marlon assisted with answering all questions regarding the lease. He also stayed in touch until I received my keys to make sure the entire process was done seamlessly.
While the NYC real estate market may always be unpredictable, Marlon was reliable and pleasant to work with. Highly recommended!
Marlon Browar of Mercer Real Estate truly went above and beyond for us. He was extremely friendly and accommodating and was available by phone/text at all hours to answer our questions. His email replies were also very timely. He showed us multiple apartments at our request and even did measurements for us!
We couldn't be happier with Marlon's service and his brokerage Mercer Real Estate and would recommend him to anyone!
For the past 6 months, I planned to move to Seattle for a new career opportunity. But that plan abruptly changed and I was reassigned to New York in June. Having to find an apt immediately I wasn't sure what to do..
I created a RentHop account and browsed the listings in New York. Having only visited a few times, I wasn't familiar at all with the neighborhoods and quickly got confused. Then I contacted Marlon via email to gauge my interest in a 1 Bedroom in Midtown. I told him my budget, what my primary concerns were, and what my dream apartment would look like. He reassured me that him and his team of brokers could handle it.
Marlon connected with me with and gave me instructions on which documents I would need when I came up to look at apartments. I then talked to Marlon about what I value in a neighborhood and my budget (including broker fees). He told me that he will email me in the morning of my showing after confirming reservations. He made sure he knew where I would be staying so that I could have plenty of time to get to the location.
TWO DAYS IN NY:
Marlon told me the night before what time we would start at. He then confirmed with me four hours prior to our appointment the exact location to meet at. And you know what? That first apartment met all of my criteria (but slightly above my budget)! I instantly loved the neighborhood and the apartment. We then looked at a few other apartments after to confirm how much I loved the first one. Unfortunately, right after I submitted my application, I found out that another renter leased the unit.. After I received the bad news, Marlon buckled down and found a few more apartments for me to view on Sunday morning (goooo Marlon!) Unfortunately again, there were a few hiccups regarding some management companies needing a guarantor. So I left NY without an apartment. But I was still confident in Mercer +Marlon magic.
Marlon viewed a few other apartments, videotaping them to show me how they really look like... and TA DA! Marlon found one UNDER my budget, in the same neighborhood that I loveeee, and just 1 block to the subway. Yes, he achieved the mission in just one week!!
Throughout this entire process, Marlon always responded within the hour and patiently/happily to all of my inquiries (and believe me when I say I have a bit of Type-A lawyer personality mixed in with my Californian roots). Yes, you will have to be flexible. But if you place your faith in the Mercer Real Estate brokers, you will find a real life NY apartment that you love. Apartment hunting does not have to be a nightmare!
Icing on the cake: Mercer hooked me up with a free trial at Equinox! Plus, Marlon showed up to my lease signing today (I actually moved in today) with a bottle of cab. How did they even know that that's my favorite wine?? They must be really magical!
So I am eating dinner at a neighborhood taco place just two blocks from my apartment and dedicating this review to Marlon and his team at Mercer Real Estate! They helped me start my New Yorker life in a cozy home that I love, and I hope I will love New York just as much.
Using Mercer Real Estate was the least stressful part of our cross country move. Our broker, Marlon Browar, was phenomenal. He quickly responded to questions and requests from the time of our first phone meeting to weeks after we had moved in.
We arrived to look at apartments one week before our move in date. With only two days to lock down a place before leaving the city, my girlfriend and I were very stressed. Marlon did a great job easing that stress by having at least 4 visits scheduled each day. He was helpful in dealing with the building managements, signing our paperwork, and pushing the landlord to get a decision made quickly on our application. He definitely has close relationships with various landlords throughout Manhattan which helped tremendously.
I would never consider using a different broker or company for any future moves.
From our very first conversation, Marlon listened to my needs regarding what I was looking for in an apartment. I emphasized how I really wanted a place that had doorman and a gym in the building and he helped to find apartments meeting that criteria, all within our budget. He was super flexible since I was only able to look at apartments after work, and he was able to work with that despite how late it was. His search was very productive because after one night of looking at 3 apartments, my wife and I found one that we really liked!
He was extremely helpful in the application process by getting all of our documents ready and following up with any additional documents that were needed by the landlord, including why additional documents were needed. Being that it was our first time looking for an apartment, he was extremely helpful from the start to finish.
I would highly recommend Marlon and his team at Mercer Real Estate to anyone looking for a seamless process.
I had a great experience working with Marlon to secure a beautiful apartment in Soho. The entire process took less than a week and Marlon was very professional in terms of making sure that we had all the required documents ready in a timely manner. He's very responsive even during the weekend (we applied for the apartment during a long weekend).
He had a ton of recommendations and advice to help us make our move as seamless as possible. Would highly recommend him and his team!!
Marlon and his team at Mercer Real Estate did an exceptional job at locating my awesome new apartment. They are very detail oriented and extremely friendly. It was an absolute pleasure working with Mercer! I would 100% work with Marlon again he provided amazing service and got me an unbelievable deal on my apartment. Definitely reach out to Marlon and his team to find you your next home in Manhattan... Thanks again.
Marlon went above & beyond to help me secure my beautiful apartment in Midtown West. He's professional, kind and very honest. Also extremely knowledgable about the NYC rental market!
Marlon was exception in assisting me find my apartment in Midtown West. I highly recommend you use him and his firm Mercer Real Estate.
