BUYER OR RENTER BEWARE! Masters of the old “bait and switch”, the only thing the Spire Group aspires to do is rip you off. As another reviewer stated, “snakes, tricking me left and right”.
The Ali’s–that is Ali Goktas and “Baran” Ali Aydin–seem to think it’s okay to post bogus listings then drag you to apartments that are the antithesis of what you’re actually looking for.
He recently took me to see an apartment at 235 W. 22nd St., which was a glorified dorm with cookie-cutter apartments that smelled like cat urine. Simply a glorified SRO.
And how about listings for $1,000 apartments that are actually “$1,500 per room?” Ali Goktas in particular was rude, inconsiderate, and frankly obnoxious.
He didn’t listen at all to my needs, was uncommunicative (does he even speak English?) and I felt actually squeamish around him. I would absolutely stay away from this guy.
