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!
We are SO happy we found Ideal. The process to rent through them was incredibly easy, and they are the most responsive agents I've ever worked with. Their company’s online application system is awesome and makes things easy and straightforward.
Elijah Manna, the owner of this company, is a THIEF. He took my security deposit, saying he'd return it if I didn't get the apartment, then never returned it. Almost a year later, I'm still working to get my money back. Beware. This company runs scams.
Ideal is hands down one of the best real estate brokerages in NYC. AP is an absolute gem, extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly! His follow up was impeccable and we enjoyed looking at spaces with him. I highly recommend AP and Ideal for all your rental needs in Brooklyn.
If you are looking for a realtor in Brooklyn, Ideal is the team to use. I have purchased two properties with them and I have sold three townhouses with their help. They excel at making every transaction appear seamless.
