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!
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 didn't think it was possible to actually trust a broker in NYC, but after meeting Eli, it became clear that he had our best interest in mind. He was able to find the perfect apartment for us and was completely flexible and understanding throughout the entire process. I will definitely be recommending him to friends who are apartment hunting!
After dealing with a seemingly never-ending trail of unscrupulous brokers, working with Eli to find our new home was a much needed breath of fresh air. He was direct, helpful, and truly on our side. We will certainly be working with him again in the future.
I appreciated that you were not pushy and did not put pressure on us. You were also very quick to respond to emails and phone calls, no matter what time it was.
"Besides being professional, knowledgeable & reliable, Eli made the apartment hunting experience extremely comfortable from start to finish."
All is well in the new place! We could not be happier.
Despite the unavoidable stress of moving, Eli was a guidance and support throughout our apartment search. He listened carefully to us, as he showed us apartment after apartment, and took in to consideration our thoughts on each place before showing us the next one in order to ensure our wants were being met and our time was not being wasted. When the "perfect" apartment came up, he did not hesitate, he acted to get it for us, and because of that, we really did end up with the perfect place to call our home.
"Eli really went the extra mile. He found us the perfect apartment and helped us through the application process. A great ally to have."
Hope this helps and all is well with you and yours.
Sorry this has taken me so long.
We were relocating from out of state so we were concerned that we wouldn't be able to find an apartment with all of the amenities we wanted. We worked with at least three other agents until we found Eli. He really listened to what we wanted and in the end found us a great, affordable apartment within the parameters we had set.

Hope you had a great holiday dinner! I just wanted to Thank You for all the work you had put into finding Chris and I an apartment. I know that we weren’t the easiest clients to work with at times but we truly appreciated all the waiting and late nights you gave in order to accommodate our difficult work schedule. Best of luck to you and I wish nothing but endless clients and large commissions!!!!
You are now “my real estate guy” in NYC!
On behalf of Stuart and I just wanted to say thanks again for your help with finding a great place.
"Raanan did a great job accommodating all of our needs and helped get us our first New York apartment. He responded quickly, even late at night and weekends. He helped take an intimidating process and made it simple. Raanan is very easy to work with and is very personable. He was respectful of our budget and what we were looking for, which helped save time for both of us. Thanks again!"
I worked with Tom Beron for a couple of months this year.
I found Tom to be pleasant, hard working and friendly.
He asked me lots of questions to hone in on what I was looking for...
And he had a good inventory of apartments to show in the area I was looking.
If I ever need a broker, I would gladly work with Tom again.
I had the easiest experience working with David Spittler. Late last Monday, I saw an ad on craigslist, emailed, got an instant response - saw the apt Tuesday, applied and signed the lease the same day! He was extremely easy to work with - even met up with me at the apt the next day so I could take measurements. David actually went above and beyond to get me the deal that I needed to make it work.
I never thought I''d use a broker to get a lease (I''ve never had one in 9 years in NYC) and this experience totally changed my attitude about them.
Gilad handled the rental of our unit at 64 Second Avenue and his work was brilliant. He moved immediately, bringing us his clients in one day, to our surprise--and while acting aggressively for his clients' interest, getting us to agree to build three new bedrooms, he was also extremely aware of our concerns and needs. This allowed us to get to a quick, positive result for all.
We'd be more than happy to have Gilad handle our rentals in the future.
I worked with Andi Antonucci on getting a place of my own. She was very communicative and did a great job steering me in the right direction. She was honest up front about any fees and negotiable on her already low broker fee. Ms. Antonucci was willing to ride all over Manhattan in a taxi to ensure that I got the apartment that I wanted, and I really appreciated her dedication. If I don''t renew my lease on the space I just signed for, Alpha Properties will definitely be my first phone call when I start my next search.
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.
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
