This real estate firm is a NIGHTMARE. They lie about their listings (particularly the location of the available apt), don't show up to appointments, are late when they do show up, and then try to make every excuse in the book when you call them out on all the reasons why you're unhappy. Luckily for me, I never even got viewed the apartment so, no dealing with trying to get my $500 "good faith" deposit back. But, when you list an apartment for $1,650 in a luxury high rise, with 24-hour doorman at 89th and 3rd Ave and then have me meet you in a building on 2nd Ave between 91st and 92 streets directly in front of the largest crane I've ever seen in my life due to the 2nd Ave construction line, I'd call that pretty shady realty and a blatent bait and switch ad. To make matters worse, after I called them out on it (getting into an arguement with the realtor's "boss" who showed up to show me the apt because she conveniently wouldn't make it in time) the "boss", Michael, told me that he called LaShara and told her she "wasn't allowed to do that anymore". And when I pressed further, even stating that I had been interested in some of her other listings but now, given this experience, didn't trust her listings, he stated that they were "probably all fake as well". These people are scum of the earth and liars. LaShara even had the nerve to email me afterwards stating that none of her listings were fake and she wanted to help me. HA! I would never give this company a dime of my money. Interestingly enough, when I checked her listings online again after I got home, the apartment listing was conveniently changed from "89th/3rd" to "2nd Ave UES". I checked again this morning, and it's back to "89th/3rd". There are plenty of other better realty companies out there. Don't waste your time with Caliber and their fake ads.
Hello, Sorry about the confusion with the meeting location, however that was not the building you would have seen the apartment in. We are not to disclose addresses of apartments. The apartment was not near any construction. Unfortunately, while this apartment does exist you did not want to view it. In any event, I was more than happy to assist you to find a unit and view this unit but you were no longer interested. We here at Caliber Associates only advertise real apartments; the meeting location has nothing to do with neither the building nor the apartment. Best of luck on your apartment search! Regards, LaShara Pratt
