Eric Goodman Realty has been in business for 24 years, and in the past five years alone, has rented to over 100 tenants who came in on a referral from either a previous tenant, or a satisfied client. We take pride in providing excellent service to our clients and tenants. In addition, we’ve had several tenants move within our company’s array of properties; from a studio, to a one-bedroom upon marriage, and when the little ones were born, to a two-bedroom. The sad truth is that people who are happy with services don't usually take the time to write on these websites and give positive reviews. Please look at the reviews on insiderpages,com in order to gain a well-rounded opinion of our company.\r
We felt compelled to respond to the “slumlord” comment after a gentleman who signed a lease with us last night brought it to our attention. He expressed concern after reading it, but was kind in saying that he didn't believe it, but wanted assurances. The broker on duty pulled up the HPD (Department of Housing Preservation and Development) report for the building wherein he was renting, and it clearly showed that there are ZERO violations on the building. By anyone’s definition, a slumlord does not maintain buildings with zero active violations.\r
Without going into the particulars of this person’s situation—as there is no need to start a debate on this forum—this tenant’s complaints are unmerited and her use of the words slumlord is rather libelous.\r
We encourage anyone looking for an apartment, who may read this person's post, to keep in mind that we manage over 200 apartments, and have rented apartments in many other buildings through our brokerage services. We conduct hundreds of transactions per year. All of our buildings are well-maintained by any standard, including that of the HPD, and many apartments have in fact been updated.\r
If you are looking for an apartment and see one of our ads or signs, please feel free to call us, and come look at an apartment; please ask for a building report, and, of course, talk to the neighbors. Eric Goodman Realty has helped many people make NYC their home, and it's a shame when a good company with good practices is potentially devalued by one disgruntled tenant.
