I found Harvard Ave Realty and Orit by chance while looking at apartments online. Orit Aviv has been amazing in helping me find an apartment AND signing the lease in one day. She also gave me her honest opinion for each place we visited by taking my situation into account, which surprised me to say the least. If you need a trustworthy and helpful broker to help you find an apartment around the area, then choose Orit.
After the huge storm and flood in the first week of the year, I unexpectedly found myself without a car or a safe and stable place to live. I had not been planning on moving, and I was super overwhelmed as I started to look through Craigslist. Luckily, the second apartment I saw was shown to me by Orit from Harvard Realty, and I quickly knew it was a great apartment in a perfect neighborhood for me. In less than four days, I went from anxiously apartment hunting to signing a lease. Orit was shocked and very understanding when I explained my situation, and worked with me to get everything settled ASAP.
Finding an apartment in Boston is never easy, and there are a lot of awful realtors out there that will show you something either out of your price range or something you explicitly said you didn't want. Luckily, I met David Sugarman who actually listened to everything I wanted, and was able to show me all the apartments that met my criteria. When I mentioned I had a friend who lived in a building I liked, he spoke with the owner to get the apartments in his inventory. What a guy! He was always professional, and had a really friendly staff whenever I was in the office. I highly recommend Harvard Ave Realty to anyone looking for an apartment in the Boston area.
I worked with Tom and David at Harvard Ave Realty and both were great. I appreciated their honesty, professionalism, and that they didn't try to sell me on or show me apartments out of my price range. Tom was very responsive, professional, and worked hard to show me apartments that met my criteria. This was by far one of the more pleasant experience I've had with a realty company in Boston. I'd gladly work with them again if I need to find another apartment in the Boston area.
Patrick helped me find the perfect studio! He patiently listened to my very long list of apartment requirements and showed me apartments that were all great options. After spending over a month of unsuccessfully working with other brokers, I was amazed that Patrick was able to help me find an apartment within the same day. He was on time for every meeting and he didn't waste my time by showing me apartments that were not even close to what I was looking for. Even after I signed the lease, Patrick always answered my calls and patiently answered my numerous questions. Patrick was wonderful to work with and I highly recommend him and Harvard Ave. Realty!
