I worked with Tony at Ideal Properties to buy a condo in Clinton Hill in Brooklyn, and he was hands-down the best. Knowledgeable, attentive, professional and enjoyable to hang out with to boot! I really liked Ideal's approach to helping me get the deal structured, and I can highly recommend Tony and the company in general. I would work with them again in a heartbeat!
Schjanna from Ideal was so good to us! She worked extremely hard and showed us great apartments. She is artistic, kind, trustworthy, and responsive. Awesome person and an even better broker.
Thanks so much for helping us find our new home! Calvin went above and beyond to show us places that had everything we were looking for and we even ended up being below our budget! We worked with a few Williamsburg agents, one flightier than the next, but Calvin was hands down the best one.
You may want to contact Linda from Ideal Properties Group, she is the broker’s broker! She will rent your apartment, and take care of all issues, from big to all the minor details. She’ll get you a great price, and find you a qualified tenant quickly. Linda is always in a good mood, and responds right away, and with much enthusiasm. She seems to work very hard to meet all your goals, but makes it all seem effortless! Linda is a rarity in the cut-throat real estate world in Brooklyn.
REMSEN TOWER REVIEWThey will stalk you for rent. They send an email on every 18th even though rent is due on the 1st. They leave a bill under your door. They leave a bill in your mail box and will call you on the 2nd if rent is not paid by the 1st. They have another location in Park Slope. They manage Remsen Towers. Remsen Tower is for a fact visually pleasing, and do a really good job of garbage disposal and making sure the building main areas are clean and decent. Thanks Shine Corp. BUT notice there are no reviews on Remsen Towers any where because they intensely manage Remsen Towers reviews so people will not know they are getting a crummy deal by living in a building filled with trash people, built between 2 very noisy, high traffic main streets, where tons of service trucks and vehicles travel on in the dead middle of the night. EVERY NIGHT. They are trying to make good on their new construction investment, so they will track reviews online. They will do nothing in response to noise issues in the building. They moved some pervert young guy who was harassing me by pounding on my walls and slamming his doors in the middle of the night. He finally stopped when he found a girlfriend. PERVERT. And he had some kind of bug problem because I smelled the strong fumigation coming from his apartment into mine. The bugs came into my apartment and bit me all over my body and face, and ruined my beautiful skin. Then they moved in some crazy nut bag creep above me who literally DOES NOT SLEEP (or has a very weird schedule), and constantly makes noise in the middle of the night, by intentionally taking a metal object and pounding on his floor every night. He now makes sure to do it every night since I asked him to stop. Their response to me was 'move out'. Very unethical people. Change your locks they will come into your apartment every chance they get, especially if you are a young woman living by yourself. There is no explanation to come into a woman's apartment so frequently besides the reason of perverted intentions. Nasty weird people
Put cameras is your apartment. VERY shady bunch of individuals, so be really careful.- You will see that most of their tenants are extremely unhappy living in their buildings and/or settling for their sub-par living conditions -You will get a crappy apartment -You will be ignored if you have an issue with your apartment -You will have little heat in the winter -You will experience their terrible attitudes, as they hate to speak with their own tenants -You will try to have a calm and civilized conversation with them, and they will be extremely dismissive, rude, and VERY argumentative-You will try to leave and they will bad mouth you to potential landlords -You will live among the most inconsiderate trashy people that society has to offer Rent at your own risk. Their buildings are for people who need to get out of a desperate situation. Another reviewer on another site mentioned arrogance....Arrogance is an UNDERSTATEMENT. Speak with them and see for yourself!
Maria from Ideal was awesome! She was instrumental in helping us to get our townhouse, in a heated sellers market! As first time home buyers she guided us throughout the process and made sure that everyone was on top of things to make the sale as painless and as organized as possible. Thanks so much Maria and Ideal!
Absolutely unprofessional company, and not worth anyone's time. Their broker, Harry Frenkel, had my application accepted, and proceeded to put off meeting me or getting a lease to me. Two days before our expected move in, he still didn't have anything for me and couldn't give me a straight answer about why, other than saying his bookkeeper hadn't come in to the office yet (which he told me every day). Finally he stopped responding to my calls and emails. I strongly suggest finding an apartment elsewhere. This company is not trustworthy.
Unresponsive and nasty. The man in charge at 225 Bennett Ave. is the over-privileged son of the owners and throws his weight around like a bully and a flaming racist. DO NOT RENT HERE, especially if you're a person of color. Just don't do it. They will find a way to make your life miserable using the money they've been bilking from renters and co-op owners for decades. STAY AWAY.
These guys really get it. I found it really difficult in Brooklyn to find respectable brokers who are also friendly, and great people. I worked with Ideal for my last two apartment searches and I couldn't have been happier with the results. I loved my first apartment, and unfortunately had to move after temporarily losing a job. Anyway, Ideal is terrific!
