WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT ABBA…
“Last November, my roommate and I were ecstatic to meet David Crombie, who, after listening to our many apartment requests, dealt with our many demands quickly and professionally. He found us our dream apartment at an incredible price in the perfect neighborhood. He was, and still is (even six months later), quick to help us with any apartment problems or concerns we face, even though it is no longer his responsibility to do so. If you’re using Abba, ask for David. You will not be disappointed.” –Brittany G. (Yelp)
“Worked with Shloime a few months ago. He was nice enough to drive us around each area so we could get a better feel for each neighborhood. He was also very understanding of our budget and we had an overall good experience.” –Kurt R. (Yelp)
“I came across an ad for a recently renovated, no-fee apartment (a rarity, in my opinion) on nakedapartments.com with the broker listed as Judy Levin. I immediately felt assured when I spoke to her as she was straightforward and our communication could not have been better. Her exuberant assistant David showed me the apartment (a very nice change from the usually dismal attitudes I’ve dealt with in the past). Carmen at the ABBA Realty office was very patient and helpful in both answering my questions about the lease and also later when I received the first rent statement with a discrepancy. She told me she would take care of it right away and did just that. All throughout my dealings with ABBA Realty I’ve been very impressed, especially keeping in mind the horror stories of friends who have dealt with other realty companies. I’m still awed by how extremely kind and helpful everyone was, especially Judy, who was so sweet when I kept texting her incessantly (even over the weekend) before signing the lease. She was and continues to be (even five months later!) my liaison when I need to get in touch with the management company. I’m so very grateful to her for her incredible kindness when I had an issue with a noisy neighbor. If you go with ABBA Realty and with Judy and team, you’ll be in good hands. Thanks again guys!” –Tiffany M. (Yelp)
“I was extremely happy and impressed by how professional, helpful and genuine the staff at ABBA realty were. The realtor agent that helped me was Ms. Batsheva (Ava) R., and she was dynamic, resourceful and simply a pleasure to deal with. I was pleasantly surprised, since I arrived to New York on a Sunday night, and was able to find a place that not only close to my work place, but newly renovated and spacious on the following day. Moreover, as mentioned prior, she was extremely professional and reliable, which are so vitally important when a newcomer is searching for a place to live for the foreseeable future. I highly recommend this agency to people who are looking for a great place to live within their workable budget, and are looking for professionals that are not only great at what they do, but want to help with this search, and this I believe includes everyone:).” –Arman F.

“Worked with Megan from Abba Realty in Crown Heights and i must say i am very happy. I was at my wits end with trying to find an apartment and i finally got a call from Megan due to an email that i sent to inquire about an apartment. She was professional and efficient. I was very impressed and the whole process was painless so thank you Megan from Abba Realty.” – Janelle N.
“Megan Primus was so helpful when many other brokers in Brooklyn really fell short. We were very happy with her service and grateful for her professionalism and positivity!” – Kaysey T.
“David, Judy, and Chaya made an otherwise painful process painless. David helped my roommate and I find the PERFECT apartment. He made us feel like we were his only customers, and has since answered many calls and emails with the inevitable questions that come up during the process of renting a BK apartment. We felt taken care of the whole way through. We have now since moved in and are still able to reach the team at Abba Realty for assistance with the transition into the new spot. Can’t recommend them enough.” – Mallory T.
“I came in contact with Abba through an apartment search on Naked apartments. I truly recommend using this agency. Everyone that I have interacted with from there has been very pleasant, helpful, and friendly. All of the listings I saw from them were in very good condition and a little bit off the beaten path, on fairly quiet blocks, which is exactly what we were looking for. Megan helped my boyfriend and I find our first apartment together. As a young couple starting out, we had a lot of questions and she was always quick to respond. She was very helpful, taking our budget into account and helped us find a great apartment that really fit the vibe we were looking for. She was patient, not pushy like many other agents that I dealt with, and she had a positive, upbeat personality that made the whole apartment process much more enjoyable.” –Colleen P.
“David Crombie from ABBA Realty is the most professional and friendly expert on his job. This guy surprised me so much with ability to come after office hours, the most flexible specialist, he is truly friendly, very honest, he knows his job for 100%. He is really nice guy, our guy, your guy, everybody’s guy. Without exaggeration, don’t hesitate, ask David Crombie from ABBA Realty and I guarantee you will love this guy. He is so fast in response, he emails you back in 30 seconds and takes care of any matter or question you may have.
Do yourself a favor choose ABBA Realty and you will never regret.” – Rovshan K.
“I was looking for a new apartment of my own to rent for at least a month an a half to no avail. While I did see many apartments and spoken to different realtors, none of them really took their time to help me until I contacted Neil. Despite his busy schedule he really put an effort into making sure that I saw as many vacancies that fit my description and needs so that I could find exactly what I wanted. Once I settled on an apartment he assured me that he would help me to secure it and that is exactly what he did. He advocated for me as a prospective tenant and kept me up to date on the renovation status. While I was in a panic about potentially losing the apartment to someone else, he helped me to feel confident that everything will go smoothly. It all worked out and I am about to move into my new home. Neil was not only professional and steadfast, he was also backed with the help of his fellow teammates at Abba Realty who are also as friendly and professional. I liked that they did everything in their power to make me feel comfortable as I reviewed and signed my lease. Thank you so much for your time and collaborative effort! So, if you are having trouble finding your new home, I highly recommend this realty.
A very happy client :-)” –Roshney L.
“Moving from Los Angeles to Brooklyn and Jake Pearson is the guy to go to. So responsive and accommodating. I flew in to NY for a week to look at apartments as I’m going to school in NY this summer and need a decent one bedroom. Jake called me back 3 minutes after I left a message and told me he had a crown heights spot for me to check out. I really liked it but wasn’t sure of the subway access. It was fine, cuz a few days later he showed me another spot that I absolutely loved and was 2 blocks from the subway. I’m excited to start my year there and feel safe and happy with my new apartment! It’s not too expensive (for NY) and access to transportation is key for me…” –Samuel S.
“My roommates and I had a hard time finding an apartment until we met David and then everything turned around! He got us a reduced brokers fee, he arranged the lease signing at a date and time convenient for us, and he also got us a 2 year lease agreement when the landlord originally agreed to one year. He has been with us every step of the way and we could not be more grateful. He made us feel very comfortable and already at home in our new apartment. Thanks Abba Realty!” – Danielle S.
“My review is on the great service that I received from Megan, through Abba Realty. She asks me what I was looking for, she could relate to my concerns as a mother and answers all my question regarding the application process. She is always cordial and willing to help me as a clients, including suggesting schools for my daughter. Always enthusiastic, energetic and displays positive behavior. She found an apartment that best suits me and my budget, never try to convince me to take what she thinks is best to me but what my requests were for my family. She always follows through and finds the answers to any questions and reports back to the me promptly and answers my text for those late night questions. The Abba Realty and Megan has excellent customer service skills and will recommend her and the company to anyone.” – Latoya B.
“I worked with Jake Pearson and he was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the whole apartment search process. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for an apartment rental in Brooklyn!” – Anna A.
“I’ve worked with allot of agents over the last 2 years looking for a place. Jake was the first one I had that actually seemed to care about what I needed. Jake helped me find the perfect first apartment. He was patient and understanding throughout the whole process and after. He knew I would have a lot of concerns and probably annoying questions. At no point did I feel rushed to make a move I wasn’t happy with. I honestly love my place and to make it better the experience to get it was very pleasant. If I ever had to move I’d definitely look into working with Jake and Abba again.” – Warren O.
“I can’t say enough nice things about Jake. Dealing with renting, real estate, and moving into Brooklyn NY is a task on its own. Jake made it about as painless as possible. Prompt calling and Text messages. He could even be reached on the weekend. Thank you Abba Realty for your great work!” – Mark C.
“David Crombie and the team at Abba Realty are the best you can ask for!
Everyone is super helpful and eager to work with you in order to ensure that you are truly happy with the results. If you can, make sure you work with David! He is an amazing real estate agent that has the unique ability to make a stressful experience fun and easy. Even after moving in he still checks in to make sure everything is going well and offers help anytime needed. Truly a wonderful person and great to work with!” – Aleksandra K.
“What a pleasure it has been working with Abba realty. I was referred by a friend to meet a certain Jake Pearson and right from the beginning the guy was on point!! We narrowed down my search based on price, location and availability to about 4 places and Jake was super persistent in negotiating my lease for me. Found exactly what I was looking for and came out 100 bucks monthly under budget!!!! I love good business and working with those who understand such practices.
Thanks again Jake!!! Looking forward to next time” – Ross H.
“We recently had the pleasure of using Chaya Rosenberg at Abba to help my family and I find an apartment and can not express enough how happy we are with her. She was a pleasure every step of the way and I would Highly recommend her and Abba Realty. She really made the process of relocating my family painless. Her communication and her knowledge of the area made us feel super comfortable with every step we needed to take.” -James T.
“I worked with Judy Levin to move into my apartment nearly 3 years ago and she has been my go to agent for apartment hunting ever since. Judy worked really hard to help my husband and I get into a building I had been wanting to move into for 2 years. She was very thorough and communicative throughout the entire process. There was one flub in the process and Judy did everything she could to not only resolve the situation but she made sure we were taken care of. I have referred her to many friends and she provided them the same level of amazing service. Fast forward to now, my husband and I have been looking to move into a larger place in our building that is in high demand right now. As soon as a place was available, Judy called me and made sure we got in. She helped us get through the process smoothly and quickly. We love our building and are so excited to be able to stay longer with more space. None of this could have happened without Judy’s help. She will continue to be my go to agent.” – Natalie T.
“I must say that I am truly impressed with Jake and Abba Realty. My sister and I were looking to move out of our places and into the city for some time and within a week our quest for about a year became a reality. Jake was super responsive, very engaging and was available for me when needed. Hands down, it the most pleasant experience I’ve ever had dealing with a real estate agent and when the time comes to leave Brooklyn, I will call them first. Thanks Jake!” – Acanthus F.
“One of the best brokers of all time! Carmen has been so great to me from the beginning to the end. She works
Hard for the people she works with. For several weeks she strived and worked hard to get my roommates ans I into our first apartment. After all her hard work she even went out of her way to visit us to
Make sure everything turned out okay with our apartment once we moved in. We are so grateful for Carmens hard work and dedication. Love you Carmen! Highly recommended , Rare, hard to find.” –Ajaijua C.
“These guys are the best!!!!
Not only are they friendly, but they are super efficient! I was able to view my new apartment, put in my application and sign the lease and get the keys all in less than 48 hours.
Their renovations are beautiful. Brand new bathroom, new and gorgeous appliances, new hardwood floors all in a pre-war building that has very spacious units. I saw over 20 apartments before stumbling on Abba realty’s options, and they had the best ones.
Not to mention, I am in an extremely safe neighborhood in crown heights.” – Bineta S.
“I was touched by an angel!
Chaya from Abba Realty was there when I was looking for an apartment, and she was there every step of the way. In a neighborhood where apartment hunting is almost impossible and searching for the right “digs” can take months or longer, the perfect place nearly fell into my lap with Chaya. She was patient with all the little quirky text messages and questions I had along the way. I feel so lucky and thankful.
Thank you!” – Renee S.
“I had the privilege of working with David Crombie and Moshe Rubin as my realtor when looking for an apartment. David is more than just your average agent. I appreciated his hard work and dedication. He was there to help in every possible way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend David Crombie and Moshe Rubin to any person who is looking to rent in NYC, as seek there services in any of my future real estate transactions.” –Barbara R.

“I worked with David Crombie to find an apartment and he was so much more friendly than the other brokers I worked with. We had been searching for a month and when we met with David to see the first apartment we found the perfect one on the first try, at the right price. David was very focused on making sure that we were happy and satisfied with our experience working with Abba Realty. I would definitely work with them again.” –Leah H.

“I’ve been looking for the longest time to move to Hamilton heights in Harlem with my family. I was initially rejected from two apartments with other brokerage companies. The second was extremely painful, as I liked it alot. After placing a call to Judy Levin from Abba, she was extremely courteous and assured me she would help. She placed a call to the management company, and because of her excellent relationship with them, they reviewed my application. In the end I was accepted. I highly recommend using Judy and Abba, and look forward to using them in the future.” –Yudi S.
“I had initially found my apartment listing on craigslist and interacted and corresponded only with Moshe. He was professional, timely and walked me through the entire process step by step. He also responded to each and every one of my questions and I had a ton of them since I had a few cruddy interactions with sketchy brokers earlier in the month. I also work very odd hours and he was flexible and able to meet before my work shift and on break hours. After living in the city for over 17 years, I have to say this is the best broker transaction I’ve had. I was treated like a valued client from the first phone call to the in person apartment viewing and to the last step of signing the lease.” -Liz N.
