I used Millenium real estate on Ditmars Blvd. You'll have to pay the broker one month's rent, but it's worth it if you stay in the apartment for at least a year or so.
I also love the area. Lots to do and the subway is really quick into Manhattan. There are tons of sushi restaurants on Ditmars, which is a big plus for me lol
$750 for a 1br is very cheap anywhere in NYC, let alone a nice neighborhood like Astoria.
I would be VERY careful. You know the saying if its too good to be true then it probably is.
Edit: I just realized that post is 4 yrs old. Argghh
