We recently went apartment hunting in the East Village. Alexander did a great job showing us tons of places. He was friendly, helpful and patient with us. We never felt pushed into anything. He knows his job. He''s honest. In a city like NY, those are two valuable assets.
Zach was dilligent, professional and listened. Pleasure to work with.
Mike is a kind-hearted broker - the one that anyone would want when they are looking for a place to live.
In the world of apartment searching, there are many lies and deceit, but NOT with Mike! He is a 100% genuine person, and a pleasure to work with. Very friendly.
My first experience was in January- I had a friend living in Chicago who needed a place in NYC, but didn''t have a chance to fly out here to secure an apartment. This friend asked me to do him a huge favor and meet up with Mike to look at some places... it was GREAT! Mike was awesome. It was cold, but he was able to take me around in his SUV. We saw 15-20 places, many of which were quite different from one another, which is a great trait to have when viewing places. My friend in Chicago chose one of those places, and when cashier''s checks needed to be given, Mike met me at my office (all the way down in the Financial district) during my lunch hour to pick up the checks. He is great.
And when I needed a place to live a couple months later, you can guess who I called. Mike Chang. A broker king among broker peasants.
"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
Gilad, helped us, and he was GREAT really was amazing customer service and put every waking moment of his time into helping us find a home. I have never seen someone so dedicated to a person he had just met then he was, if you are in need of a new home and you need help come to Alpha, more importantly come to Gilad, he made a very painful process a little less painful
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.
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 recently secured a lovely apartment through Asaf Cohen. I saw a few places with him, and many others with other brokers, and in my experience, Asaf was very friendly, patient, thorough and not at all pushy. He listened to my needs and treated me with respect. Apartment hunting in NY is a hideous experience but working with Asaf went very smoothly. He turned the application around very fast, shaved some money off the rent and got me the move in date I had wanted. I''m now living in a fantastic new home which I couldn''t be happier with.
Who ever said finding an apartment in NYC was a painful experience? Andi Antonucci at Alpha Properties made this one of the easiest experiences since I first moved to the city years ago. I sincerely appreciate the customer service she exemplified in every aspect of the process. From being on time, to listening to our picky needs, the entire Alpha team made my life easier.
Without a doubt when considering your next move call Andi Antonucci
Israel was referred to me by a friend who had a great experience with him and spoke of his honesty and how he "is not like other brokers." Over the course of a couple of weekends, I needed to make the most of my apartment hunting time prior to relocating to NY from another city. On virtually a day''s notice, Israel gave me a few hours of his time on both Saturday and Sunday, and I had a sense that he had taken note of my preferences and priorities and did additional work for me to prepare for the following weekend of apartment hunting. I was very impressed with his accessibility and responsiveness. Israel is also very up front and honest, setting expectations for how we would be able to work within my preferences. I felt that I could trust him, and that he was a knowledgeable source of information for living in NY in general, as well as the particulars of the rental market in certain neighborhoods. If you are in need of assistance with apartment hunting, especially if you are coming in from out of town and have never lived in New York, I would highly recommend Israel to ensure that you have someone you can trust on your side for the difficult adventure that is apartment hunting in NYC.
