New York, NY
I think it's worth a point by point review....
1) I knew the neighborhoods far better than the agent, who still insisted we take wrong turns, and asked directions from people who clearly didn't speak English. I, however, speak fluent Spanish. I'm also a woman.
2) I am also a serious painter. As such, my only requirement was a great deal of light. He insisted that North facing windows get lots of natural light.
3) I have heinous credit. But I also have a guarantor who earns close to half a million dollars, and a cosignor who also earns quite alot of money. To pay for my supplies, I also work a verry corporate job and am working at rehabilitating my credit. At the end of our meeting the agent asked me about credit and began to roll his eyes when I said that I'd discuss my credit with the management company, with all required paperwork.
4) Agent (same as other reviewer?) could not give me accurate prices on some places and also showed me apartments with bedrooms that weren't anywhere near the housing or pricing requirements I specified.
His unprofessionalism was incredible. My bad credit shows on paper; his is manifested as his life.
