Unfortunately, I signed my lease before I realized how unprofessional this business was. Our realtor constantly feeds us false information (costs, move in/out dates, amenities, etc) and she is extremely unreliable. They don't respond to emails and they handle things very poorly. I would NOT recommend.
I had a great experience working with David. He was on time for my appointment and even stayed a little later than he normally does to show me a place and accommodate my schedule. He was honest about both apartments that he showed me, both the positive and potential downside, but I loved one and ended up signing a lease that night. I was lucky because the building works exclusively with him. He wasn't pushy like most other realtors that I've dealt with. It was a really pleasant process, and I will be recommending him to anyone that needs a realtor.
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!
I'm not sure why there are so many bad reviews of Harvard Ave Realty! My boyfriend and I were looking for a one bedroom off-campus to save money. We didn't have a big budget and I was picky with what I wanted. Furthermore, apartments were renting out fast! We worked with Dan Patzelt and it was only a pleasure. He was very candid about the apartments and seemed to know a lot about the area. He was accommodating to our student schedules and even picked us up/dropped us off at our dorm sometimes on the way to or from showings. Now that we've moved in, the process was easy. Dan answered all of our questions and concerns. I'd definitely recommend Harvard Ave to others!
Eric at Harvard Ave Realty does nothing but post bait and switch ads on Craigslist. My husband and I have each called on separate occasions about a listing that was posted weeks apart and he called each of us back saying it was suddenly rented because it was such a great place. All he wants is to get you on the phone to see what you're looking for and then try to get you into some shady apartment you wouldn't otherwise consider.
Do not trust this "agency".
