Omer was always professional, polite and punctual. No problems at all. Thanks!
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 had a great experience with Sunny at Alpha Properties NYC. He helped me and my roommate find the perfect apartment and then quickly helped us submit an application. He was very helpful, friendly and professional and addressed all of our concerns immediately. I would recommend Sunny to anyone trying to find a great NYC apartment!
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 Omer and Joe during my apartment search. Omer was professional and made the process seamless and stress-free. Omer even went out of his way to help me get measurements for my apt and get the a/c installed before my move-in date. They were both super quick and responsive with any questions I had during and after the move. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and anyone looking for a new apartment.
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
My experience with Alpha Properties was hands down the best experience I''ve had using a broker in New York City. They were so prompt in giving me a ton of options that fit all of my requirements of an apartment-- which was amazing considering I had a giant list of requirements and huge expectations. (Also, unlike other brokers they don''t show you anything above the budget you outlined, which is something I appreciated.) They worked with my schedule to make sure I could see apartments at times that were convenient to me and even kept on top of the whole process with me via email and text while I was out of town. Chris Corigliano in particular was amazing at making sure the apartment I settled on was going to be perfect for me. Once I had decided on one, he dealt with all of the paperwork with the management and followed up with me (including move in details, insurance, etc)-- so that everything was settled quickly and efficiently. So excited to move into my studio tomorrow! I''d recommend this company to anyone looking for an apartment in the city.
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!
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.
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.
