We worked with Mike Chang from Alpha Properties while searching for our first apartment in NYC and were 100% pleased. We were looking for a 2 bedroom on the Upper East Side. My roommate and I saw Mike''s listing on Craig''s List listing and were able to visit that day. We really liked the apartment, but knew we had a particular situation as one of us was currently out of the country. He met with my roommate that night to discuss the application process and the best plan of action. He was diligent in helping us through the process and worked intently to ensure we accepted and approved in a timely manner. Mike was professional and responsive throughout the entire process which really put us at ease. We had worked with an unreliable broker beforehand and were so pleased to have found Mike. He made the process easy and much less stressful. Can''t say thanks enough. Highly recommended!
I was in a bit of a bind trying to find a new apartment before my current lease was up (in a matter of days!) and Mike Chang from Alpha came to the rescue! Firstly, he responded quickly to an e-mail I sent regarding a few postings and set something up for the next day. After getting a good understanding of what I was looking for he mapped out a very efficient and time saving course for checking out a ton of apartments in a short amount of time. He wasted no time trying to persuade me on apartments I didn''t show any interest in and really made the search about me and what I wanted, which was refreshing compared to experiences I had in the past with other agents.
In the end, I found the perfect apartment and Mike encouraged me to move quickly... the two of us rushed to his office to get in the application and necessary paperwork in less than a day! All worked out and I was approved for the apartment. Mike and his colleague took me through the lease in a very detailed fashion, making sure I understood I was signing for.
All in all it was a pleasant experience and the process was fast and efficient. Mike was easy to talk to and was very patient with all my questions/concerns throughout the process (he was even gracious enough to hop of the phone with my parents to clarify a few things I was unsure of).
I would recommend Alpha Properties to anyone and would definitely use them again!
My roommates and I moved from out of state, which is daunting as it is. We spent our first few days in NYC working with a terrible brokerage firm that conveniently only had apartments at our maximum price ( even though the location was undesirable- East Harlem!!?) Finding Alpha was like coming home. Andi helped us find an apartment in one day that was beautiful ( hardwood floors, large living area, windows in every room) in the area we wanted ( Upper West Sidea) and below our maximum price. We were able to sign the lease in a few days and move in less than a week later! I absolutely recommend Alpha...for anyone moving- choose wisely- picking the wrong realtor is a nightmare.
I had a great experience working with Mike Chang, he really went above and beyond with helping me find a place, especially since I was living in another city at the time and unable to physically be in NYC to sign a lease. He helped me get all the necessary documents together to be able to have an apartment by my short deadline. I would definitely recommend Mike Chang to anyone looking for an apartment.
My roommates and I were looking for a 3 BR apt in the Gramercy/Flatiron area. This, being my third apartment search, I was quite familiar with how difficult it is to find a good apartment in NYC and the right broker. Through Alpha Properties, we worked with Tom Beron who blew away all our expectations. Not only did he find us a great a place at a very reasonable price, but he was very easy to work with. Throughout our search and application process he was very patient, never pushy, and always seemed to be working for our best interests. He had a lot of good listings to show us and worked with all our needs to ensure we would get the place we wanted. It was great having Tom as a broker and I would recommend him to anyone else looking for an apartment in NYC.
Olga worked tirelessly to find the perfect place for my family. I felt like she really listened to what our needs were and scoured the market to find us our apartment. Our want list was pretty tough, but I knew when she showed me an apartment she did a good job pre-qualifying it for us.
Alpha NYC has been a pleasure to work with. This past summer we used several brokers, but nobody was able to find what we were looking for. Thankfully, we worked with Tom Beron, who was extremely helpful, competent, and efficient. He quickly found us the perfect apartment, and even knocked $250 from the original price. He also charges a very fair and competitive broker''s fee. I was abroad when my roommates found the apartment, and Tom was very understanding and patient when receiving all of my paperwork. He is very practical, knowing exactly what needs to be done and when. I will definitely be recommending him to everyone I know.
Devin was great! Efficient and flexible - viewed,signed and closed within 48 hours.
My roommate and I both moved from our homes in New Jersey back in May. We tried a different brokerage firm before finding Alpha. Andi responded to our request immediately and was ready to get started right away. Because we were first-time renters and fairly new to NYC, we tried our best to prepare ourselves with questions and concerns, while hoping not to be taken advantage of. Andi respected our requests and budget restrictions, and also did an excellent job of showing us apartments in the areas we had designated. All apartments we saw fit the descriptions we had provided. Andi never tried to convince us to pay higher than we could, and was very straightforward with the policies and procedures of Alpha. She was very quick to respond to our calls and emails at any hour, and very patient with the many questions we had. During lease signing, she made certain that we had the chance to read the entire contract over, agree to it, and ask questions. She also made it a point to have us in the office in person so that she could clarify the riders and make sure that we knew how to communicate with the management company and landlord. I would definitely work with Andi again and have already recommended Alpha and Andi to some friends interested in moving in the near future.
My roommate and I spent three stressful weeks looking at sub-par apartments with various realtors in Manhattan. We were hoping to find a two bedroom in the Upper East Side, albeit with a modest budget. After we saw about ten apartments (ranging from ridiculously non-livable railroads to quasi-convertible one-beds) , essentially, the message we were receiving was "your budget is too low."
I contacted Andi Antonucci at Alpha Realty, and the first two apartments she showed us were far superior than others we had seen (in regards to both layout, quality and price). Both apartments within the same area we had spent weeks surveying.
The second apartment Andi showed us was fantastic--huge, a true two-bed, newly renovated, one block away from the subway and cost less han any other apartments we had seen prior. When we found out an application had already been placed for the apartment, we were extremely disappointed; but then Andi called me at 8:00 the next morning to alert me the spot had re-opened, and got our materials approved for a lower cost than originally listed. She went out of her way to make sure we got first-dibs. The place is really too good to be true!
The management at Alpha, particularly Raanan, is extremely professional, friendly, and straight-forward about the often-murky application process.
I highly recommend Andi and Alpha Realty!
