Rachel is an opera-singing, trivia-slinging ball of energy originally from Seattle, Washington. Moving to Manhattan for her Masters degree over 6 years ago was the best decision she ever made, and getting to know the neighborhoods, restaurants and attractions of this wonderful city has been a longtime passion -- she is excited to put that knowledge to good use!
After a few miserable experiences hunting for an apartment, Rachel quickly learned what worked and what didn't when searching for the perfect place to live, and how to pick the right person to aid in this process. Now, as a licensed real estate salesperson, she looks forward to providing a level of customer service and attentiveness that she always desired.
Rachel is a great communicator, hard-working and extremely diligent. And, if you'ire lucky, she might even treat you to a bit of her Bernadette Peters impression.
Rachel Policar from Bohemia Realty Group was everything you can hope for in a realtor. She's kind and she keeps up with you every step of the way when it comes to both finding and applying for apartments based on your needs. She always makes time to show you all the properties you're interested in, as well as recommending ones after carefully considering what it is you've expressed to her you need. Not only that, but she was willing to give outstanding advice about apartment searches that goes beyond what she "had" to say as a realtor. She really cares, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for places in NYC.

Rachel Policar is the absolute sweetest. We would not have been able to make it through this process so easily without her kindness and warmth. In addition, she was always available for me if I had questions. Her answers to my questions always were transparent. I did not feel pressured by her to sign a lease only for her profit, but she cared about what we really wanted and needed in our new home. Cannot recommend her enough!

"I loved working with Rachel Policar when I moved to NYC. I was impressed with how knowledgeable she was of each neighborhood she showed me. I actually worked with two other realtors from other companies while working with Rachel but quickly stopped because Rachel was best. I'd say I was a difficult case for her but she never gave up. I'd definitely only use her in the future and refer others to her." ~ Wykella P., Washington Heights
"Rachel was sweet and lovely to work with- and everything started off wonderfully.The lease signing was pleasant and easy." - Elizabeth P., Fort George
"She was awesome!! I really felt like it was a great experience. We are very happy with our new place! And I will recommend bohemia to everyone." - Jenna, Washington Heights
"Rachel was so flexible. She did more than what she had to." -- Marina G., Washington Heights
"My experience with Bohemia Realty was amazing! I recently moved to NYC from out of state, so I was forced to do my apartment search over the phone rather than in person. Rachel was amazing! She sent my roommate and me countless videos of apartments and took our feedback seriously. She also was readily available to answer any questions and managed to coordinate our lease signing virtually across different states.
I could not ask for a better experience! If you are searching for an apartment, Rachel and Bohemia Realty are definitely the ones to see!"
~Ikeia M., Washington Heights
"This review is for Rachel Policar. Rachel was superb! I honestly can not rave about her enough. She went above and beyond for my roommates and me. She was timely and professional throughout the entire process. I wish all agents could be like Rachel. She truly considers your needs and does whatever it takes to secure the space you want. Thank you so much for your service Rachel, you're the best!"
~Elissa M., Washington Heights
"I worked with Rachel Policar. She's so amazing! From the first time I contacted her, she was very hands-on and gave me great advice on the relocation process. Each time I saw a place that I liked, she had no problem going out and getting physical videos being that I was not yet residing in NY. I would definitely recommend using her!"
~Tiesha B., Washington Heights
"Rachel made special arrangements in order to fit my schedule. I will go to Bohemia Realty Group if I ever have to move again!"
Martin B., Central Harlem
"Loved Rachel and Bohemia. If we need to move again, we will definitely be working with Rachel again."
~Eduardo G., Washington Heights
"Rachel was very supportive and helpful throughout this process. When we first moved in a lot of what was remodeled in our apartment was either not done or done poorly. She helped us out in making sure the super and property management were on top of it as soon as possible. We loved Rachel. We would love to work with her again for when we are interested in buying."
~Steven R., Washington Heights
"Working with Rachel Policar was a great experience. She was super accommodating and couldn't have been nicer. She showed us a variety of places that were just what we were looking for. Even though we did not find a place because of circumstances that had nothing to do with her or the realty group, I would 100% recommend using Rachel as your broker. She knows a lot about the upper Manhattan area as well as the area around the apartments she showed. I would have her be my broker again in a heartbeat!"
"Our experience with Rachel Policar was very easy going & comfortable. During a stressful event, her professional positive demeanor puts the nerves at ease and gives hope to a seemingly impossible cut throat apartment hunting competition in New York.
Rachel was very efficient & on point. She showed us an apartment we originally inquired about but was not to our expectations. We simply talked for about ten minutes about what we are looking for and right away, she had a list of apartments in her head & she wanted to show us that night. She had a gut feeling about the last apartment she showed us & exclaimed how she absolutely loves it herself. Sure enough, we loved it just as much as she did and we gave her the deposit on the spot.
The signing experience was very quick. Once all paperwork was emailed and sent off, we received the lease the next morning once approved. We are very pleased with Bohemia Realty Group especially with agents like Rachel Policar. I would highly recommend working with her to anybody, especially if you are hoping to live in an apartment that perfectly fits you and still keeps within your budget.
The Bohemia's website is beautifully designed and easy to navigate. They have a perfect list of apartments that look like dreams. Gladly love to work with Bohemia again if looking for an apartment in the future."
~Matthew M., Washington Heights
"My experience with Bohemia Reality was absolutely amazing!! This was my first time working with a broker, so I was a bit nervous about the process. I was on a time crunch and had limited resources. From the very beginning, my broker Rachel made a commitment to help me find the apartment I would love. She exceeded my expectations!! Not only did Rachel find my dream apartment, she was in my corner the entire time negotiating the best deal for me. She was available to answer my text/ calls and always looked out for my best interest. She even braved the crazy NY weather with me to view apartments! I highly recommend Rachel P. at Bohemia Reality!! Washington Heights location on Broadway and 163rd St."
