I rented an apartment from Greta for 3 months March 27-June 27 2015 on East 58th street. It was a perfect location close to subway shops and restaurants. It was safe with very helpful doormen. There is a full laundry in the basement of the complex. Walking to Broadway and off broadway shows was easy, most within 20 minutes walk. 10 minutes to beautiful Central Park and 20 minutes to Lincoln center. Greta was most helpful and attended to any of my queries in a very timely fashion. All in all I had a wonderful New York experience in a great part of the city.
I had a commitment to rent one of her apartments months in advance for a summer rental. One week prior to move-in she told me the apartment was no longer available. When I called her to discuss why she did this-she hung up the phone on me and took it off the hook.
Terrible experience! Will not deal with this landlord again and will not recommend the same to others. But if you still come across Greta, make sure that you have a document signed by her which clearly states the address of the apartment and the price. If you manage to get a few updated photos of the place out of this landlord, you have succeeded halfway!!! Pay attention that the same photos repeat from one of her properties to another. Do not commit until all your questions are answered, if, of course, you can stand the bizarre and rude attitude.
I was totally frustrated trying to find accomodation for a stay in
NYC. Having declined accomodation
from Greta initially (as I thought it to be too expensive) I emailed
her again and she immediately repsonded assuring me that she would
find me a suitable place. She was true to her word. On arrival in NYC
she was welcoming and was very helpful to us during our stay. She is a
hard worker an goes out of her way to accomodate clients. She is
direct and to the point so dont be put off by her blunt approach. She
is really very kind!
I dont know what this landlords apartments are like because i could not get past 3 sentences with her. She was very hyper and aggressive, and would not give me chance to even tell her what apartments i was interested in as she would interrupt me when while I was attempting to provide her my specifications. She seemed to be panicking about the US open and UN week.... Good luck to anybody who deals with her.
The landlord was impolite over the phone.
i met Greta one year ago,i was looking for apartment and send about 5 emails to a different landlords,but nobody respond,i finally give up then she send me an email,she was very nice to me , i was asking to call her and we set up a day when i can see the place,NO deposit which is great for me and i am sure for every one!
one year left and i never turn my head to other landlord,this is my 3rd time renting a place from Greta and NO problem,i read reviews someones told she was rude,but i dont agree,i have no problem with her at all!!!
i recommended Greta to everyone who needs apartment on emergency based and for any case!
I found Greta to be direct, honest, accomodating and very helpful. She has gone out of her way to help me when my schedule changed several times, and I highly reccomend her. She is NO games, and bluntly honest...dont be upset, be happy someone tells you the truth right away. Greta is a rare and wonderful find.
I read the reviews on Greta, and chose to call her anyway. I found her to be very up front, and quite blunt. I expected that, and I actually appreciated it. I am scheduled to meet with her, and pay for the apt I am renting. She was quick, efficient, and did everything she said she was going to do. I hope all goes well, and sometimes I know I can come across harsh, so thus far I would reccomend her. She went out of her way to help me, when I had a problem with plans. I am greatly appreciative.
I rented from Greta on an emergency basis, when I needed to move in the same day I found the place. She was extremely accommodating and was able to get show me the place at lunchtime and get me in by that evening. The place was well maintained, if a little dated, but Greta went above and beyond to make it comfortable, even coming by to do the laundry. I would highly recommend renting from her.
I saw the reviews for Greta. I went out of my way to be humble and polite. After a few emails I was completely fed up!
Landlord was rude.
Greta is impossible to work with and is rude. When I inquired of one of her properties, she repeatedly referred me to her other properties, refusing to schedule a viewing.
Her harsh tone and comments in e-mails were extremely offensive. We chose not to rent from her.
this woman is hard to work with!
Nasty woman... difficult to deal with. She scares tenants away.
This really doesnt have anything to do with the landlord, but my experience with the listing agent/broker was possibly one of the worst Ive ever had who in theory was trying to sell me something. When I called her cell phone (which was listed in this website) to discuss a possible rental, and asked for Greta, she responded who else would be answering the phone, she then proceeded to yell at me for not emailing her and then she hung up on me.
Please verify rental type and all prices before staying at the apartment.
