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!
I worked with Andi! She worked so hard to get me the perfect apartment. I was super stressed during the process, but Andi helped me keep my cool! She''s a great agent and if I ever move in NYC again, I will definately use her!
I was on the hunt under a very tight timeline and I had found Mike Chang who was absolutely incredible. I have lived in New York City almost my entire life and I am extremely knowledgeable about the rental market. When I spoke with Mike I was very specific in my demands and I told him that I didn''t have time to go see many places. I gave him the specifics and he way surpassed my expectations based on the limited inventory that was available in the Upper East Side. Not only did he get me a place that was incredible but he got it within four blocks of my old place.
Everyone knows that moving is extremely stressful and he completely alleviated a lot of the stress with the paperwork. He is also very knowledgeable with buying and selling of apartments in New York City and I plan to venture/invest in sales and buying a property using his services. I highly recommend using Mike Chang from Alpha Properties weather you are planning on moving and renting or to buy and sell an apartment.
Danny was wonderful to work with. He is diligent, always returned my call quickly, addressed the problems, and stuck with it until we got the apartment! He is respectful and I believe it was because of him that I got approved. Thank you again Danny!
Andi made our entire apartment hunting process super easy. We had been bait-and-switched by brokers a few times, but Alpha Properties completely alleviated any worries we had about the tough NYC real estate market. We actually applied for our apartment with CitiHabitats, paid the fee, and then were told the unit was rented to someone else at the last minute. We later met with Andi, who informed us the same unit was still on the market, and after checking with the landlord, told us that they had never received our application the first time we applied with Citi. We then ran down to her office, put in the app, and got everything taken care of very quickly. She was helpful, personable, and very professional. She knows the UES market really well; I''d definitely recommend her.
My roomie and I had been tirelessly searching for an apartment for the month of October (due to some nightmarish roommate situations- but that''s another story) before recently signing a lease and moving into a really great apartment in the Upper East Side. Our agent, Andi Antonucci, was more than helpful in helping us find a home that was within our budget as well as within our preferences. She was always very prompt and polite in replying to emails, texts, and phonecalls and was very diligent throughout the entire process (all of which occurred in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy! She even met up with us to show us an apartment (which we now call home) late in the evening when both my roomie and I were both free to see it together.
The majority of agents my roommate and I had interacted with before coming to Alpha and to Andi, were your stereotypical realty slimeballs who probably didn''t care much for helping you find an actual home, but rather were more concerned with the numbers game, making a profit, and moving onto the next "client". Seriously- some of these guys will lie through their teeth and say anything to make the sell. I could see right through their bullshit.
So thank you Andi and Alpha Properties, thank you for being so sweet and professional, thank you for helping us find a place we can really call home, and thank you for being a HUMAN. Other agents- please take note.
She waived our application fee!
Mike Chang was insightful and perceptive in finding a property quickly to suit my needs perfectly. He took the steps to close the deal in a timely fashion and I''m very happy in my new place
Andi did an awesome job with finding us a place DURING the hurricane! Saved me. Thanks a bunch!
"Danny helped us find a very nice rental in midtown east. In the few hours we spent with him, he was very intuitive in understanding what our needs were and he showed us several units that had everything we were looking for. We could have picked any of the apartments he showed us and we would have been very satisfied. What we really appreciated about Danny was that he was considerate, not pushy and remained readily reachable. I would recommend Danny to my friends and colleagues with no reservation. "
Mike Chang is the real deal. Not only did he respond to our inquiry quickly and professionally, he went to great lengths to find us the perfect fit. Navigating the market for an apartment in Manhattan can be more than daunting, but his compassionate approach eased our worries. He is a client-focused, hard-working, and knowledgeable broker.
We did not ultimately rent from Mike because of a fluke opening in our current building, but he will be our go-to guy in the future and we will DEFINITELY recommend him to our friends.
