I contacted a lot of brokers while I was desperately looking for a new place. A year ago I was forced to move out of my apartment within 10 days. I didn''t want to move away from the upper east side so I tried to find something close to my old place. As soon as the brokers found out that I am from Europe they told me I would never be able to get an apartment unless I earn enough money and have someone guarantee for me that earns even more money. After a very long day of looking at apartments that were simply inacceptable I met with Andi Antonucci from alpha properties. I had almost given up hope, I had to move out the next day and so far not seen a single place that was close to what I was looking for. I told her right away that I am not a US resident and that my salary was not as high as expected, but that I would still be able to pay for everything. First thing she said was that I shouldnt worry, she would find an apartment for me. She was so nice and said she would only show me apartments from where she knew the landlords could accept me. Out of all brokers I met with she was the only person who actually showed me apartments within my price range and exactly in the neighborhood where I wanted to live. I moved into a beautiful and perfect one-bedroom apartment only four days later! Everyone at alpha properties new york, especially Andi Antonucci, was so caring and nice and really eager to make it happen for me to not only move in asap but actually find the place I was looking for.
I can only recommend alpha properties!
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.
As a young professional living in New York City, it is always a challenge to find trustworthy people in real estate.
Shawn was not only dependable, but extremely resourceful and very knowledgeable of the city. He was very understanding of my time constraint and only showed me things that he knew applied to my long list of demands.
In the end, he was able to find the most ideal apartment in a tight real estate market with the quickest turnover.
They have the best listings, we checked with other reality companies and they just didn''t show the same quality apartments. Also the application process was very smooth!
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 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!
Having lived in several apartments in the city, I know very well how painful looking for a new apartment can be. This time around we had Tom Beron as our broker, and all I can say is that the experience was as good as it gets. He had a great sense of what my roommates and I were looking for, and has great relationships with building managers in the Murray Hill and Gramercy areas. His relationship with one company in particular paid off extremely well. He was able to negotiate the rent down $250 on the unit we were interested in. You can imagine that my roommates and I were thrilled when we heard this news. He charged a fair price too. I've definitely overpaid for much crappier apartments before. When it came to the application process, it's definitely tough to get three recent college grads with every document in order. Tom was very patient with us while still staying on point and making sure everything was in order for the management company. It was great to have him as a broker, and I'll definitely be using him again when I'm in the market for a new place. Fortunate for my roommates and I, the place he got us is great so it might be a couple of years until then. I'd say if you are looking for an apartment in the Murray Hill / Gramercy area, Tom is definitely the guy to reach out to.
I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed meeting with you on Sunday during the walk-through and the lease signing for the apartment. I really did appreciate your help and working with the boys in the apartment search etc. You personal touch and friendly disposition is appreciated. Your professional attitude and willingness to accommodate our schedule is also appreciated.
My son really did appreciate your help and the way you treated him.
Best wishes and thanks a million.

we can't thank you enough for finding such a wonderful place for us! Unlike other brokers we talked to, you were never pushy and seemed to genuinely care about what we wanted and listened to our needs. This definitely sets you apart from the rest. Be sure that I will be recommending you to my friends all over town. And of course, look for an invite to our house warming party ;)
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!
Andi was really responsive and on top of the game. She was really flexible with timing and understanding. We are still deciding on the apartment but I would still recommend Andi. She will be very helpful and quick to address your needs!
