Looking for a broker who will actually give me the time of day.

Asked by Sascha, New York Fri May 10, 2013

I had a difficult time renting an apt 3 years ago and by the grace of God, met a broker who didn't get frustrated, upset or downright rude when i said the apartments she showed me were not a good match. After several apartments i found the perfect one. Once again i am looking to move and i need a broker that is familiar with Queens, more specifically:

Rego Park
Kew Gardens
Forrest Hills
Middle Village

my criteria is as follows:

price range $1350
1 bedroom with windows in living room
available parking
near transport
clean neighborhood

I went to see an apartment recently and the broker talked on the phone the whole time and it was VERY clear that she lost interest once i told her the apt was not what i was looking for.

If your only goal is to make a quick sale, please do not responsd

If you liked the broker who helped you the first time around, why not simply contact him/her; or ask people you may know for referrals; for available area properties check http://www.mlsli.com also check local print media for by owner rentals, always verify ownership before exchanging any money, word of mouth, etc.
