Raymond's Rooms at 207 E 125 Street is the biggest scam artists in the city, they prey on folks living on fixed incomes or with jobs just getting by looking for housing. Several people that I interviewed told me how they were set up after paying for a furnished room, but when the clients got there, the room was empty and smaller than they were told. Sometimes in a dilapitated building or house. Stay away from this agency.

I rented 2 rooms and didn't have any problems

“Slightly below above-average”

Since: Jul 10

arguably garrulous

Edgar... you didn't move in with 27 relatives, did you?
'Cause that definitely would make the room seem smaller.

I also rented two rooms at different times through Raymond's Rooms and never had a problem. Edgar Martinez and Sergio seem to be the same person and a liar. They were always polite and there results were good. My last room I lived in for 14 months with a very nice family on 195th street and St Nick's before moving into my apartment. They also have been serving Upper Manhattan and surrounding areas as long as I have known them which is over 13 year. Thank You

Raymond himself is a huge liar. They rent rooms for other people and some of them are nice some horrible but Raymond will tell you anything to get your money and don't expect to ever get a refund if you're not happy.

Raymond's rooms is the biggest scam. They prey on people on people who need housing ASAP. A friend of mine gave them $575 for a room. when he got to the room the owner of the apt. slam the door in his face stating he ha no vacant rooms. Raymond's room would not refund his money nor did they find him another room. Consumer affairs need to shut the agency down immediately

I hope Raymond is on the level because I will be needing a room soon (next week). Hopefully not in someone else's home. i have had bad experiences when sharing and would prefer just a room with a bathroom. I am a student and not some rich person. I pray Raymond can help me.

I've known Raymond for so many years and not once people has complained. And if you got a room that's not good, is not Raymond fault. And you don't have to keep the room. Look for another room. You are just an idiot.

Question y didn't u ppl who geld scammed y didn't u ask to view the room b4 handing over any $$$ or y didn't u make appointments to arrange meetings and start looking and asking questions before u really had the money that's what I did and do .. I went to .a place that took cash only.. But I wasn't feeling the vibe so I told the man I had to go to an ATM when I actually had it in my pocket I left and never returned DJ if u feel violated and scammed it's it own fault.... My friend to me about him and I googled him and look what I found so I know now he works and all that so next it in need of a room asap..... Slow it down asap doesn't get u a good deal
