Gilad is the worst. I first reached out to him via the Internet, I saw a listing under his name that suited my price range and appeared to fit my needs. He suggested that we set up a day to view apartments based on my needs ( price

totally unprofessional. they switched agents on me from my original call and then they switched again. after confirming our appointment the guy calls back the next day and did not reach me. when i called him 10 minutes later he started copping me attitude for not picking up my phone and said he would not make our meeting on time because we had not confirmed. when we saw a place we discussed general terms and price. after putting in an application that day we were not called back and then when we called we were told that the landlord wanted 150 more a month - in a renters market. we did not budge. it took us several weeks to get back our application fee after more shady doding and doublespeak.

Pros: access to nice apartments

Cons: very shady dealings

BEWARE! I wish I had looked these guys up before looking at apts with them. They showed us one we really liked - I gave them money for an application fee for me and my boyfriend (they tried to charge more for the fee than previously discussed, but I had brought cash and it was all I had with me, so they were out of luck). I got suspicious when the woman we were working with said we could definitely come sign the lease the next morning, as if it were nothing (before submitting application, looking at credit, etc). A few hours later it turned out there was a higher offer on the apartment. It seemed like the landlord would never have accepted the price the apt was advertised for anyway, even without another offer. Also, the offer may have been fake. We sensed shadiness and refused to get into a bidding war. They agreed to give back our application fee but then kept dodging phone calls and emails. We met to see one last apartment (NOTHING like what we were asking for - they don't actually seek out apartments that fit your criteria, they just show you whatever junk they happen to have) and it turned out the woman "forgot" to bring the refund. Then she went out of the country. Eventually I went down there in person and was sent out to get a letter notarized saying they'd given me back my money before they'd hand over the check. Three weeks after the fact I finally got my $ back, so if they have scammed you don't give up - go there in person and get it back.

Pros: none

Cons: scam artists, liars

My wife lived up in a Sassouni-managed building at 97th Street for 10 years; I lived there for 3 years, and moved in two years before we got married. Suffice it to say that Sassouni Management is the worst company I've ever dealt with. Ambi in particular was a royal nuisance, running the gamut from incompetent to outright rude and insulting. I'll start with the building: poorly maintained, plagued with insects during the summer, at least 10 days a year without hot water due to "emergency servicing" of the boiler, lack of adequate heating during the winter, and leaks that allowed water to cascade through the roof (above the 5th floor) and pool in each hallway down to the 3rd floor. The tiles in the hallway walls and floor are cracked, the walls aren't able to hold screws (even with anchors in place), and there's raw plaster patches and uncovered holes in the wall all over the place. As far as the management office staff go, Ambi is awful. Soon after I got married, my wife called and asked that my name be added to the lease. Ambi told her, rather rudely, that Sassouni Management "doesn't add people to [the] lease" and hung up. Never mind the fact that my wife and I had already done the legwork and found the exact law, code and section number indicating that they are, by law, REQUIRED to add a spouse's name to the lease after being notified in writing. So we contacted the appropriate branch of NYC government, sent Sassouni a certified letter with our request and waited 30 days for them to (fail to) respond. At that point the NYC tenant advocacy department took over ... two months later, we received a copy of the judgment, ordering Sassouni to add our names to the lease immediately. Even when we wanted to move out, Ambi proved to be incompetent. When I asked her for a number to fax some info to, she gave me the _phone_ number. The receptionist who screened her calls ended up getting me the info I needed. Summary: Sassouni are slum lords. AVOID

Pros: Cheap rent.

Cons: Poorly maintained building, incompetent management officers (aka Ambi).
