Michelle helped me find an apartment for my family in 2019. She was friendly, promptly replied to emails and texts, reliably met me when planned and suggested options I would not otherwise have identified. We ultimately found a place that was better than I had expected thanks in part to her help. She made the process of applying for and negotiating the final lease easy and low stress.
Burdie was highly helpful with helping us look at some apartments in the Prospect Heights area. She was transparent and thoughtful, and it was a pleasure working with her. While we did not end up choosing an apartment in this area, Burdie made our apartment search process enjoyable, and we were very grateful for her help.
Sunny and Peter,
I highly recommend anyone looking for an apartment to work with Burdie! She is very responsive to emails, calls, and texts so you don’t have to worry about a long wait for someone to get back to you. She stays in your price range and takes into account your wish list for an apartment. She’s super kind and friendly and answers any questions you have about the apartment and is very informed on the place and landlord she works with. Working with Burdie was by far the best experience I’ve had working with a broker!
It was a pleasure to work with Burdie. It is tough to come across an agent (especially in ny) that you feel is working for you. She was understanding, flexible and most importantly honest with the good and the bad. She took the time to understand our feedback and had great insight on the buildings, landlords and areas she was showing. We at no point felt pressured and loved feeling like someone had our backs in our apartment hunt!
Michele helped us secure the perfect apartment for us! She was a pleasure to work with and continued to act professionally throughout the process from viewing to signing, and even checked in after we moved in to see how we were settling in. Highly recommend!
My partner and I had a wonderful experience looking for our first apartment together with Burdie. After each living in various areas of NYC for almost a decade - my partner and both had a laundry list of needs for our future home. Burdie spent time to make sure we found the best apartment for our budget and that fit our needs - around our crazy schedules. Additionally, she has relationships with some of the most wonderful landlords in our area. Definitely our favorite apartment to date in Brooklyn!
Working with Burdie was such a delight. My partner and I are new to the New York rental market and Burdie helped us really successfully navigate through this process! As we toured and applied for the apartment that is soon to be our home, Burdie advocated for us to our new landlord to make sure our lease and the pre-move maintenance on the apartment was fair and reasonable.
Not only would I use Burdie again in my next search, I have actually already recommended her to a friend who is moving into the city in a few months.
My girlfriend and I were determined to find a new place and we searched high and low for 2 months. We met and interacted with so many brokers and agents but Burdie was special. What makes her special is the fact that she really cares. She will listen and she will work diligently at all hours of the day to help you find exactly what you want. She is genuine and honest. It's hard to find someone who isn't just trying to make a buck in this industry. Burdie is a true gem and I am so grateful that we crossed paths during this very daunting process. If you need a place, ya better call Burdie!
My experience with Burdie was nothing short of amazing. I have experienced realtors for practically my entire life (family business is in real estate), and without a doubt, she is the best I have ever encountered.
This was my first time renting a place in NYC. Unlike all of the other brokers I dealt with, she actually explained the process to me and had my best interests in mind. She actively put my needs before her own commission and genuinely cared that I found an apartment that I would be happy in.
I cannot say enough kind things about Burdie. She was an absolute joy to work with, and has continued to help me with the apartment for weeks after I signed the lease.
If you have a choice in your broker/agent, I implore you to reach out to Burdie. You'll immediately realize how amazing she is, and how much better the process will be with her on your side.
Hands down the best broker you could wish to have helping you find your new place.
After what seemed a lifetime of looking for somewhere to suit my needs I met Burdie who showed me a property in Park Slope. Despite it not being the property for me Burdie took notes on what I was looking for and did the searching for me.
She ended up finding me the best place in Clinton Hill, which hadn’t even been posted yet.
She walked me through exactly what I needed to do to make my application watertight, which I needed being a first time renter in nyc!
Always easy to reach, really attentive and detailed on what needed to be done from both myself and the landlord.
Would 100% recommend to anyone who is looking to find their new home!!
Thanks Burdie :)
I dealt with a lot of realtors when searching for my first apartment in New York, and Burdie was definitely the most helpful and personable I worked with. She took the time to listen and understand what I wanted in an apartment on a personal level. Rather than try and shoehorn me in a place that wasn't right, she worked to find places that fit my needs, and to help me get an edge on securing more competitive apartments. Many other realtors gave me the feeling of being of being dispensable, or of being brushed off - Burdie was a rare exception to that.
Burdie was extremely nice and helpful. She responded to emails and texts promptly. She streamlined the paperwork so that I didn't need as many documents as other landlords/brokers were requiring. And best of all, she continues to reach out to make sure the the move-in process goes smoothly. It was a pleasure working with Burdie! I wish more real estate agents were like her :)
I would highly recommend working with Michelle (aka Burdie) for any and all of your real estate needs. Searching for a new apartment was driving me crazy, looking at place after place, dealing with one agent/broker after another. None of them were as respectful, down to earth, but most importantly, as HELPFUL as Michelle.
Ultimately the apartment she showed me was a little out of my price range. When this happened with other agents I was made to feel like I wasted their time. Michelle went the exact opposite direction. She went above and beyond to provide me resources that eventually helped me find a place. She’s a great human being, and an even better broker. Again, I can’t recommend her enough!
Burdie has been an absolute delight to work with during my search for an apartment. She is very willing to work closely together, is extremely warm and accommodating, and most importantly, she is keen to ask difficult, but valuable questions of prospective properties (landlords, other tenants, etc.) to ensure that there aren't any hidden surprises along the way.
Long story short, Burdie made me feel very welcome and at ease during my apartment search, and I would very much love to work with her again!
We were very happy working with Burdie. She really listened to us and found multiple properties for us even though we had a difficult requirement list. She was always available to answer our questions and to offer suggestions regarding spaces we may never had thought to see. We would definitely work with her again.
Burdie is absolutely amazing, she is a great person and a great broker. She genuinely cares about making sure you find a place you love. She worked around the clock to help me find a place. When I found one in the location I wanted, even though she wasn't the broker for the unit, she still helped me out and looked into it to make sure it was a legitimate sale. She is fantastic at what she does and can 100% be trusted in helping you find your new home. (:
Burdie is without a doubt the best real estate broker I have worked with in New York! In my 6+ years of apartment living, I have never met someone who was as prompt, kind and organized as Burdie. She has thought of me even when I wasn't hunting -- sending me places she knew I would be interested in. I look forward to continuing the relationship and only renting through Burdie!!
Burdie was so great to work with! Her warm and kind personality made the entire process so easy and completely stress-free. She took the time to make sure we had everything that were looking for in an apartment, and she was willing to go out of her way many times to accommodate us. She was extremely attentive during the entire process and really made us feel like she was right there when we needed her. I would recommend Burdie to anyone looking for an apartment!
I recently got a deal to move to NYC, and in a very short time noticed. Renting in NYC, in my case Brooklyn, is very stressful and difficult. I am sure I could not be able to find the apartment I did without Burdie's help. Burdie is extremely attentive, reliable, and will make the impossible to find anyone the right unit! 100% service, almost almost 24/7! Thank you for your great service!
Burdie helped me rent my current apartment, and she was a downright Godsend. She did everything she could to work quickly and made sure I didn't get out-bid; she negotiated with the landlord to get him to agree to some nice repairs before I signed the lease; I later discovered that she personally took the time to clean up the space after the men who gave it a fresh coat of paint left a mess behind them; she gave me a very fair broker's fee.
Basically, Burdie is a very sweet soul and anyone in New York would be lucky to rent through her. She goes above and beyond for her clients in every sense of the phrase. I would absolutely work with her again the next time I am looking to move.
Burdie was such a great help to us during our home search, really taking the time to understand us and what we were looking for. It was such a nice experience and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for their new home.
Burdie is a fantastic broker. She has great knowledge of the NY market, takes careful consideration of your unique needs and surfaces some great options. Honest, punctual and a genuinely nice person. Highly recommended!
I can't say enough good things about Michele (Burdie). Looking for an apartment can be stressful. Burdie took all of the stress out of my search. In addition to being a great listener, she is an extraordinarily good human being who is truly interested in helping her clients find their perfect home. She helped me find exactly what I was looking for in short order. Simply put, she cares. And because she cares, she is the best at what she does.
Ok... I have met with about 10 brokers in the past week and you are far and away the most professional, thorough, helpful, and friendly
The best agent I've worked with in the city by far. She really cares about finding you a place where you'll be happy and comfortable. She went above and beyond to make sure my requests (installing or fixing certain things) were taken care of before move-in as well. She is very organized and just an all around nice person. I would definitely recommend working with her.
Burdie helped my roommate and I quickly get our apartment just a few days after she first showed it to us. She was incredibly responsive throughout the process, making sure we had everything we needed to apply and sign the lease. It was a big help to work with someone so nice and friendly during the apartment hunt.
I haven't rented from Burdie yet, but I am confidant that I will. I love Burdie's different approach which is to really listen to your needs and desires and then help you manifest it. She believes in you when other agents laugh in your face. She is kind and gentle and makes the crazy process of real estate in NYC a bit more manageable and friendly! Burdie is the best!
Michele was very helpful and responsive. I would recommend working with her.
Michele 'Burdie' Burdiak helped me find an apartment in Bay Ridge. She's great: quick to respond, incredibly accommodating, and super nice. I can't recommend her enough.
Burdie was excellent. Even though we did not rent an apartment with her, she was a pleasure to work with and even gave us movers suggestions! Burdie is very kind and very patient, she really listened to our needs. Burdie is very responsive and what I valued the most was her honesty. Her goal was to not waste our time and I really appreciate that. I highly recommend working with Burdie to find your perfect home. Thanks Burdie for everything and best of luck!

Ms. Burdiak was genuinely fantastic. She was smart and upbeat and really knew what she was doing. It was a joy to work with her and made apartment hunting both productive and fun. I will definitely be sending anyone I know who is looking for an apartment in the future her way!
Lauren Nicole Flippo,
I didn't end up renting from birdie, but she was amazing and very attentive!
Agent is wonderful and responsive. Great!
Burdie has been so great! She was incredible at keeping in contact with us, and keeping us up to date on everything that was happening with the apartment. She always kept us in the loop and was always super sweet. We had a great time working with her
Burdie was great, while we did not rent an apartment through her, she was more than willing and able to provide us with apartment listings that fit our criteria and was flexible enough to work around our schedules in setting up viewings.
Such a great experience. Michele went above and beyond our expectations and worked so hard to find us an apartment that we loved. We couldn't be happier!
Burdie is a very professional, thoughtful and urgent broker! She listens to your priorities and makes them her own. Unfortunately she did not have access to the apartment I ultimately selected, although I wish she had! I highly recommend working with her both for her diligence and honesty. Thank you, Burdie!
Burdie was BEYOND helpful and patient in our search. She always responding to our questions quickly. I would recommend anyone work with Burdie!
Burdie was a pleasure to work with, she responds fast and is extremely helpful in finding apartments suited to your person needs. She is very caring and attentive to the questions you might have. Best agent I've had!
Burdie was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the process. Can't recommend her enough!
Dedicated and persistant!
Burdie was an amazing broker to work with and although we didn't end an renting from her, I'll be willing to recommend her to any of my friends.She took the time to get to know us and our preferences and incorporated that into the places she showed to us. If you're looking for a broker who knows her way around and who will look out for you then Burdie is your woman.Thanks Burdie for all the tips! We enjoyed seeing Brooklyn with you.
