I have recommended Ohav to every single person I know who needs a broker in Manhattan. We all know how grueling of a process apartment searching in NY can be..Ohav made it a breeze!!! He found me the perfect apartment..and within 3 hours of meeting him I was ready to put down my deposit! Unlike most pestering brokers who push you to fill things out because they claim "someone else has applied," Ohav was extremely honest and helpful in both the application process and the lease signing. He even kept in contact over my moving process to make sure things went smoothly.
Very amazing guy and broker-I recommend Alpha Properties specifically because of Ohav.
"Dafna was an amazing asset in our search for our perfect apartment. She went out of her way to make sure that the broker process was simple enough for us to complete as a full time student and full time lawyer with little free time. The entire arrangement was always transparent and 6 months after signing our lease, I still recommend her to friends."
• To Whom it may concern,
I am writing in regards about your employee Dafna. I Had the pleasure in working with her on finding my new apartment back in November. She was so accommodating in showing the apartment I wanted to see. Dafna is great with people and made me feel comfortable in making a very big decision. She is timely, professional, and knowledgeable about her field of work. I am very lucky to have worked with her and super pleased about my living situation and how it all came to fruition. I would recommend Dafna to anyone who is looking for an apartment.
This was my first apartment by myself, so naturally I had all sorts of weird requirements, silly questions, and tons of hesitation in signing a lease. Dafna was very understanding, and she was more than willing to show me one particular apartment more than once. I had actually met her a few weeks ago when she showed me another apartment that didn't work out. Out of all the brokers in the city, I guess I was really meant to rent from her! I knew I had to have the apartment as soon as Dafna showed it to me, and she was very helpful in making that happen. We rushed to her office as soon as I decided, and I was out of there in under an hour. When there was a slight snag in the management company's scheduling, Dafna was very responsive, and worked with me as much as she could to come up with a viable solution. I love my apartment now, and Dafna is to thank!
Dear Dafna - You assisted us with getting an apartment for my daughter, Casey (Katherine) Smart, at Mulberry Street, and on which I am a co-signer. However, neither of us received a copy of the signed lease and I am writing to you now to ask that you send a copy to me at: Cynthia Smart Smart Legal Assistance 701 4th Ave. S. Suite 201 Minneapolis, MN 55415 She loves the apartment! Our compliments and thanks for your excellent, swift, professional and friendly service! Happy Spring! Thanks - Cynthia Smart
Saul Cohen of AlphaNYC found me and my three roommates the perfect
apartment! We were looking for 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, in a hip
neighborhood, at a reasonable rate... Not easy criteria to say the
least. Not only was he patient with our very high standards and up
front about the listings he shot our way, but he ended up finding us a
beautiful space in the heart of Williamsburg. Once it was clear it
was the place for us, Saul made sure we were the ones to end up living
there. He was always available but never annoying. An entirely
positive experience. Thanks Saul!!
I also wanted to tell you how grateful I am for your help in our apartment search these past couple months. You really went above and beyond for us, and I so appreciate your constant communication and dedication to finding us the best apt.
You always made time for us, and were so on top of being flexible around our changing schedules, and organizing many visits to numerous apartments.
We are thrilled with our new home!
I am referring one of my friends to you,I know you will be a wonderful resource for them.
I finally moved in:-))) got some of my stuff although I have no single furniture to put it into but I am just so happy. I love the apartment!!!!! The super is also very nice and I feel home being back to the area:-). Happy end:-).
I am so glad I met you and that you made this possible for me! I really hope to see you around some time!
At my wit's end. That's where I was when I found an ad on yet another apartment finder site, for yet another "spacious one-bedroom" in the right neighborhood, at the right price that was... and here's the biggest factor... PET FRIENDLY. I'd already been turned down by a couple of brokers who wouldn't even work with me as I searched for a no-fee apartment that would accommodate me and my 100lb Akita. Apparently Akitas are considered aggressive breeds in NY...so even when I found apartments that allowed dogs over 50lbs...chances are they STILL wouldn't allow my dog.
So anyway, I sent an email in response to the ad and heard back from Chris Corigliano from Alpha within the hour. Turns out that specific apt didn't allow dogs over 25lbs (which, let's face it...under 25lbs isn't really even a dog)...BUT...he said I'll find you something. He took me on...he didn't laugh at my meager budget (which would be a good mortgage in some towns...but in New York doesn't seem to get much more than a cardboard box ...but under a GOOD bridge). He didn't think I was crazy to want a full size kitchen and a bedroom that ACTUALLY would fit a BED! He didn't say, I can't help you when he found out about the size of my dog. He said...don't worry...we'll find something.
And after a difficult search...with him even sending me leads while I was traveling out of the country for work...and looking at tons of apartments... and getting more rejections based on my dog... we finally found something. FINALLY. A proper one bedroom. He negotiated the rent down to fit in my budget and got me the move in date that I wanted (pro-rated for the month...which seems to be an issue w/a lot of the buildings these days). He was calm, he was patient and now my dog and I can remain together in a lovely apartment, in a convenient location (3 stops to my job!!).
Oh...and to top it off, when I moved in...waiting for me was the gift of a little tin of olive oil from his family's farm in Italy. Seriously? So, would I recommend Alpha, absolutely. Chris C. ... a pure class act.
The only downside was that I did end up paying a fee (although it was well below the standard broker fee rates in NYC).
And for the record... as a public service announcement: I have met more aggressive Chihuahuas than aggressive Akitas. It's all about training and socialization. (Just had to get that off my chest).
I recently transitioned from LA to NYC for a job opportunity. I wanted to be close to work on the Upper West Side. My family mentioned I needed a broker since I was also moving my family and needed the space. I found Israel the VP from Alpha Properties on craigslist but was sceptical dealing with him since I was remote from LA. He knows the Upper West Side pretty well and since I was very particular about things, Israel knew where to look at. I had my brother-in-law meet up with him and Israel was very accomodating. My brother-in-law knew my taste and after viewing 3 buildings, Israel found an apartment with all the amenities I asked for and is only a 1 1/2 block walk to work. Even though we ran through some hurdles with the management company (not his fault), that didn''t stop him from reassuring me that the we have the lease. During the month we communicated remotely prior to signing the lease, he was very responsive even past 9pm ET (6PM PT), never rushed me to signing a lease, and had an overall great attitude even when I was running late. I had a backup broker on standby but never needed him since Israel never wasted my time when I was shopping for an apartment. Thank you Israel for such a pleasant experience.
Joe Mor is simply amazing. He is trustful, helpful, kind, caring, hard working, accommodating, always available, extremely knowledgeable and effective. ?Our situation was unique in that we were looking for an apartment for my daughter that would also have room for me to visit a few times a month as I had just lost my husband. Joe was so considerate and understanding and compassionate. ?He didn''t hesitate when we wanted to see over 10 apartments at often difficult times. He didn''t stop searching until we found the perfect apartment in the perfect location. I felt like he was my son. He won me over at a time in my life when no one could say anything to me. He should be commended for taking a very difficult situation and making it comfortable. I will recommend Joe to anyone looking for rentals. He is tops!!
I loved my experience with Alpha. Alexander helped me with my search and was diligent and understood 100% what I was looking for. I fully recommend him if you are looking for committed and honest broker.
I interacted with multiple brokers while looking for a Manhattan apartment, and Mike Chang was by far the most helpful, responsive, and professional agent I encountered. After making an online inquiry I received a phone call from him just a few short hours later. After realizing the apartment I was interested in wasn''t right for me, he began looking for others immediately. Unlike other brokers, Mike wasn''t pushy about renting an apartment outside of my price range- when I told him my preferred budget, he stuck to it. If you''ve had any experience with brokers in Manhattan you will know this is a very rare quality! Mike was always responsive to text messages and phone calls, and stayed in constant communication about meetings and appointments. Even after my lease signing he continued to help with questions I had for my building''s property management company.
Overall, I don''t think I could have had a better apartment search experience with any other broker. I highly recommend this trustworthy and professional agent for anyone looking for a Manhattan apartment. Thanks Mike!
