When my partner and I had to move out of Columbia University housing, we quickly learned that finding an apartment within our budget in the city - especially during the summer - was extremely difficult. We had one month and ended up meeting with 7 different brokers to view different apartments they had listed. In the end, we preferred working with Amauris Martinez. He was responsive and flexible with his availability; he listened to our questions, needs, and preferences; he was patient and persistent; and just on the first day of meeting him, he showed us more apartments than any of the other broker. Moreover, Amauris is transparent, fair, and honest about his fees and our transactions which made us feel more confident about working with him. Ultimately, he found us the place where we are currently living and are very happy with our decision to rent through him.
Considering how difficult the experience of apartment hunting is in the city, I can say it was a pleasure to work with Amauris, and I would highly recommend him.
Amauris was extremely professional as a real estate broker. We are so grateful to have Amauris helping us with our apartment search. He responded promptly to my emails and was patient answering all of my questions. I highly recommend him to any renter looking for a broker. THANK YO SO MUCH AMAURIS!
Amauris is the best broker I have dealt with to date. He is transparent, efficient, available and understands each individual's situation, with a seemingly endless amount of apartments to show. If you are looking to make things happen within a brief period of time and are willing to spend a fair price for a broker, look no further.
I was glad to work with Amauris. He was super responsive from the get-go. He was flexible with scheduling, never hesitated when I asked to see the apartment a second time, answered all of my questions, and offered additional information to help me better understand what I can and can't expect from owners, management companies, and supers. We covered every aspect of the lease together before I signed it (for my wonderful new apartment, yay!!), in detail. If you have not dealt with a broker before, be sure to ask Amauris what is expected for each step in advance. He is so laid back that I didn't always know when to bring deposits or fees or how to prepare them. It all went great, though. He never rushed me or pressured me to make a decision and he seemed as interested in making sure I was informed about the neighborhood and the building as he was in finding a tenant for the apartment (that is now mine, yay!!).
amauris responded very quickly to my initial inquiry, and we set a time to see a few apartments. he met us on time, and had lots of places to show us in our price range. his fee was super reasonable compared to other agents we worked with, and he had access to everything they did. renting in nyc is a pretty terrible process in general, but amauris helped everything move quickly and smoothly. he was professional, knowledgable, and didn't pressure us. he was there from start to finish. i hope to stay put for a few years, but i would definitely use him again!
I highly recommend Amauris. My daughter needed to find an apartment in NYC (northern Manhattan area) quickly and she had a limited budget. I had contacted Amauris via e-mail two weeks prior to arriving in the city (I live in Michigan) and he responded right away that he would be happy to assist us in finding an apartment. The first day I was in the city Amauris showed us apartments within her budget that also accepted guarantors outside the tri-state area. That same day she put in an application for one of the apartments and the following day she was signing the lease. Amauris made our search successful, I certainly appreciated his help and would recommend him without any reservations.
Amauris is a knowledgeable and professional broker based in Uptown Manhattan. He helped me get an apartment I really wanted and was there to help with all the paperwork and procedures every step of the way. He was readily available via text or e-mail and would always respond quickly. There are no mysteries when working with Amauris; he even takes the time explain the nuts and bolts of his profession if you want to know more. I cannot recommend Amauris enough. I referred my brother already to Amauris. If you want a good broker that will work for YOU, then get in contact with Amauris.
Amauris was very responsive in communications and not pushy. I appreciated his flexibility when it came to scheduling times to meet. The process of renting an apartment through him went smoothly.
Amauris is terrific. He found us exactly what we were looking for with the first apartment visit; we signed the lease the next day. He listens to your needs closely, knows the idiosyncrasies of the other groups within the housing industry, and is patient, professional and responsive. If you want to live in Washington Heights/Inwood/Upper Manhattan, stop looking for other agents (some will not respond). Just call Amauris!
Have nothing but good words for Amauris. My sister, husband & I called him & he helped us at a time when we needed him most. He was very patient with us, assisting us as we viewed several apartments & answered our questions truthfully (as far as we know) & was even accommodated us even after office hours. And when my husband & I finally saw & liked the last apartment which we are now renting, he made it possible so that we could get approved right away. Had no regrets having Amauris as our broker & now me & my husband are happy in our place we now call home here in the city.
Working with Amauris was a pleasure. I've met my fair share of scam artists, false advertisers, greedy, and just plain rude real estate agents. Amauris was just the opposite. I told him my budget and everything I was looking for in an ideal home and he was able to quickly point me in the right direction. He is well experienced and knows the landlords, processes and neighborhoods he works with well and he's incredibly responsive if you have questions. I recommend Amauris Martinez without reservation.
Amauris did an amazing job he help us a lot and all the questions and concerns we have he always has an answers I definitely recomened him to help u like for new apartments is a very god person and a professional worker
Amaurius helped me find a great apartment for a good rate. I apartment hunted as commuter from CT so it wasn't easy to make time to search/secure. Amaurius was very expedient. Was quick to respond to texts and emails and he moved the search/secure process along as fast as I was willing to complete steps. There was no waiting. It was also helpful that he knows the landlords and there habits. I walked around city with other agents who couldn't always get access to units. Was forthcoming about known issues with management companies and buildings. I never got the sense that I was being misled about a unit. Also important -> was willing to work for less than a lot of other agents who want a large percentage of annual rent. Good at his job.
Amauris not only found us the perfect apartment, but he really worked hard to make sure the application and leasing process went as smoothly as possible. I would work with him again.
Amauris was a fabulous realtor! He was thorough and professional. He found us the perfect apartment for our little family!
