Bob Brooks is the BEST broker around!!! He was the ONLY agent to see me the same day I called. I was doing a big move from Cali to New York and he helped me through the entire process. When I arrived for my appointment, he had a list of places ready to be shown that day. He is so kind and very impressive. He got the apt that was perfect for me. He even helped me figure out the commute to my campus. He made everything really easy being alone in New York as a college student. He also spoke to my mom and help bring everything together. Everything was all settle in 2 days. I am very grateful for him and I will be recommending him to everyone I know!

Finding an apt in NYC can be scary, but it doesn''t have to be. Find yourself a Bob. Quick to respond, deeply understanding of my unique needs, and ready to deliver. Bob will advocate for you and genuinely try to match you with the right place. Even though I don’t have a very big budget, Bob treated me like a friend. Thank you so much for helping me!

After attempting to work with several other brokers, I felt disappointed and hopeless. Enter Bob. He genuinely went out of his way to advocate for us and deliver solutions. When other brokers said no, Bob said yes. He will make the effort to really connect you with the right apartment. He will work around your schedule and find the “diamond in the rough”. Thank you very much, Bob!

?Bob quite simply is the man! Within 24 hours of contacting Bob, I went from extremely stressed by the NYC market to signing for a beautiful place on the UES. Bob has a great energy, is always available to talk, really listens to what you''re saying and can hone in on exactly what you''re looking for. He does not treat his clients as such, he embraces you like an old friend. No matter what you''re looking for Bob can find. He is extremely knowledgeable of the NYC market. Prior to our meeting, about 10 hours before we meet, he had already sifted through over 100 listings. I cannot recommend Bob any higher!

Bob took care of all our needs from the second the initial meeting started right through to the end. You would be hard-pressed to find a more knowledgeable and thorough agent. He worked tirelessly to get us our first choice of apartment in an amazing location at a great price. He took the time to show us each apartment, answer all our questions, and even stayed late so that we could get all our paperwork in order. A true professional, he helped turn what would have otherwise been an intimidating process into an enjoyable and exciting atmosphere. I cannot recommend him enough - if you want to work with the best around, accept no substitute. He did a fantastic job making himself available no matter the time and provided emotional support when things got stressful. Truly exceptional service!

From the 1st conversation I knew Bob would find the perfect apartment. He answered every question, always accessible and made the process seamless. Found the perfect apartment and a friend as well. Can’t thank Bob enough. Adrian

Bob was great. He has great energy and puts love and care into each of his deals. Got us a great deal in midtown west. Responds to all inquiries promptly and is overall very helpful and informative. Highly recommended. Will definitely go through him the next time I need an apartment.

Robert is a fantastic agent, and I find it unfortunate that I can''t use stronger adjectives for fear of sounding hyperbolic or disingenuous. Bob does not beat around the bush, which is a quality I''ve encountered countless times in many other agents.. To start, he arrived at our destination early (we arrived roughly 5 minutes early to find a tall man waiting at the door with a huge smile on his face) and took us in after a 5 second introduction. He proceeded to show us 3 apartments, and amazingly enough, our biggest problem was choosing which one to sign. What really sold me on Bob, though, is what he said to me as he was walking away: "If you want to get the deal done tonight, let me know. Whatever needs to be done for you to be happy and sign, just let me know and we''ll get it done. Tonight. I''ll work late for you if you want me to." That small quote essentially captures Bob''s energy and motivation which, to me, were the absolutely definitive selling points. It goes without saying that all the basics (discussing broker''s fee, paperwork, etc.) were covered seamlessly as well. All in all, Bob''s fantastic both as an agent and a person- he''ll get the job done. Just be warned that there will be hugs at the end (he really does insists on these), so be prepared once you sign.

Bob was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. He responded to my inquiry within minutes, and got me in to see the apartment I wanted that day. Not only Bob, but the entire staff at Bond New York went above and beyond to insure that my roommate and I got the place we wanted. He says that he “Puts love into every deal” and that couldn’t be more true! Definitely found my lifelong NYC realtor.

I am new to moving to New York after growing up and attending college in the Midwest. My roommate currently lives in the city, but finding an apartment that was in our price range and met many of our requests (such as a low walkup, near our workplaces or near a train, etc.) was horrific. We continued to search and search and became discouraged. That was until we came into business with Bob. Bob was easy to work with, incredibly helpful, very responsive, and everything you could ask for in a broker. If you’re located in New York or anywhere else, Bob is your guy. He is very accommodating and flexible and will do whatever it takes to find you what you are looking for. My roommate and I found the perfect place thanks to Bob. Bob is the guy I will recommend to all my friends and my own broker for life! Thanks, Bob!

I''ve lived in NYC for 5 years and I''ve rented A LOT of different apartments. It is always a nightmare and I try my absolute hardest to avoid brokers because I''m always spoken down to, told to come into the office and shown a bunch of things out of my price range in irrelevant neighborhoods on way higher walkup floors than I request. Bob was honest, fair & more than helpful in searching his entire database for my requirements. Then he gave me a clear list of days and times to see them, starting with the one he knew I would love. He insisted I raise my voice about any issues I may have & that he would be able to help me with ANYTHING as long as I spoke up. Every single thing I asked about he made work for me & he was right about that first apartment. We loved it & had our application in just minutes later! He took the time to explain things without being condescending and after just 30 minutes in the office & a two day span from seeing it & signing the lease, he gained a lifelong client! If you''re looking for a place, Bob is your guy! Thanks, Bob!

Bob Brooks has been fantastic to work with. He showed us three beautiful apartments, all in our preferred neighborhood and all in our price range, and was extremely accommodating - he even had his colleague, David, take us to see two of the places twice! I''ve seen a lot of terrible units during my apartment search, and every single place that Bob showed us was better than anything we saw elsewhere.
In the end we rented a huge one-bedroom in Hell''s Kitchen. Bob got us a great deal and has continued to be helpful even as we prepare to move, since he is so knowledgeable about the area. We''re lucky to have found him!
