My spouse & I rented an apt in a building that was severely damaged by Sandy. We have tried to find a new apt to call home. Every agent we speak to does not follow up on viewings, listings, or even a return call/e-mail. Looking for a reliable agent

This seems to be par for the course with L.B. R.E. Agents. They would not last one week in Manhattan. Were you working with Prudential ?

Did you try Joe Sinnona?

Try angies list or craigs list and rent an apt. in Long Beach without real estate agent and save her 1 month rental fee commission! Be careful of shysters and fraudsters, by checking with City Hall to see who owns the house and if it is the landlord that you met with. Do not make any deals with anyone other than the landlord on file with City Hall Tax Dept. for the address you seek to rent.

There is an app called Homes.com that has many rental listings with contact info and pictures, so you canbe your own agent.

FORGET THOSE REAL ESTATE AGENTS...IF ITS NOT A WORTH WHILE DEAL FOR THEM, THEY WON'T CALL YOU BACK.....BESIDES THE FACT THEY ARE ALSO LAZY !! AND THATS RIGHT....THEY WOULD NEVER LAST IN NYC. REAL ESTATE MARKET....SUCH A DIFFERENCE WHAT MAKES AN AGENT....ALSO....CRAIGSLIST IS THE WAY TO GO...YOU CAN ALSO POST AN AD YOURSELF WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR ETC...I JUST LOOKED RECENTLY ON CRAIGSLIST...SEEMS LIKE THERE ARE A TON OF APARTMENTS AVAILABLE BY OWNER....ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT GOT THEIR INSURANCE MONIES BACK AND REDID THEIR PLACES....SO ALOT OF THE APARTMENTS ARE BRAND NEW.....WHEN YOU GO ON CRAIGSLIST MAKE SURE YOU PUT LONG BEACH INTO THE SEARCH AREA AND YOUR PRICE RAGE....ALSO THERE ARE SHARES TOO WHICH ARE REASONABLE....GOOD LUCK MY LONG BEACH FRIEND......HUGS....

BTW beware basement apartments, they are 99.99% almost always illegal fire hazards, mold hazards, and worst of all if there is another flood you will lose all of your stuff and have no place to live too! Report all basement apartment to the Nassau County District Attorney for criminal prosecution. Call 516-571-1000.

WE ARE WORKING WITH ROBIN BOKOR FROM PETRY IN LONG BEACH. SHE HAS BEEN WONDERFUL TO DEAL WITH, RELIABLE AND DOESN"T WASTE YOUR TIME. SHE SHOWS YOU WHAT YOU ARE INTERESTED WITHOUT HASSEL AND CONSTANT PHONE CALLS!!!

Leonard, the last time I tried using Craigs List, I am still getting porn and all sorts of spam, sent to my inbox. Criagslist is to be avoided, there are other web sites that do not have that issue and work better. Meredith, good to hear about someone having a good experience, I will spread the word on that. I heard that Petrey RE has closed two out of their three offices in the last two months and is steps away from going out of business.
