We used Gilad Talmor of Alpha Properties to find a four-bedroom/ flex five in New York City. He was very knowledgable of the market, and always seemed to put the client first. He had a ton of listings that fit exactly what we were looking for and never wasted our time. Gilad was very easy to talk to, and he always seemed to make himself available whether it be by phone, email, or in person. Recommend using him for your next apartment search, because he will make the process that much easier especially if you are a first timer.
Right from the beginning, I was able to get in touch with Gilad with ease and he was able to work with my schedule in order to set up an apartment viewing on very short notice. He was very professional/courteous and he provided me with all the little details I needed to submit my application. Even after submitting the application, Gilad kept in touch and let me know everything that was going on with the management company so I was always aware of the application status.
Again, it was a pleasure working with Gilad Talmor and I hope to continue to do so in the future and would highly recommend him to friends and colleagues.
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!
"From my first meeting with Gili, she has worked tirelessly to find out exactly what I was looking for, and to find a suitable 1 bedroom apartment that I can call my home. She is cheerful and energetic, and most accomodating with my hectic and unpredictable schedule. She has gone above and beyond to survey a great area of Manhattan (the entire East side), for a suitable apartment and then arranged a well-strategized viewing schedule. Most importantly, she is very considerate and did not push for an immediate decision on the apartments that we viewed, but instead offered her thoughtful opinion on the lag between an apartment getting on the market and then becoming occupied. It did happen that an apartment that I really liked was already taken by the time I gathered the application paperword. Gili was amazing and put forth extreme efforts to make sure that I finally got a similar apartment, in the same building. Finally, she helped with the application procedure which went very smooth. All in all, Gili was tremendously helpful, finding us an apartment in a very short time frame, given my extreme schedule restrictions, and she did it cheerfully and light heartedly. I can say that she can easily rival and real estate agent featured in House Hunters".
Andi did an awesome job with finding us a place DURING the hurricane! Saved me. Thanks a bunch!
David was a gentleman.
Extremely easy to work with.
Quick in responding to messages.
Showed very competitive listings.
Israel is the one of the most talented and dedicated real estate agents (or professionals for that matter) that I have ever met. He knows Manhattan like the back of his hand and always goes the extra mile. NYC is a very difficult place to find real estate for rent or sale if you don''t know what you are doing -- I can''t recommend Israel enough.
My roommate and I both moved from our homes in New Jersey back in May. We tried a different brokerage firm before finding Alpha. Andi responded to our request immediately and was ready to get started right away. Because we were first-time renters and fairly new to NYC, we tried our best to prepare ourselves with questions and concerns, while hoping not to be taken advantage of. Andi respected our requests and budget restrictions, and also did an excellent job of showing us apartments in the areas we had designated. All apartments we saw fit the descriptions we had provided. Andi never tried to convince us to pay higher than we could, and was very straightforward with the policies and procedures of Alpha. She was very quick to respond to our calls and emails at any hour, and very patient with the many questions we had. During lease signing, she made certain that we had the chance to read the entire contract over, agree to it, and ask questions. She also made it a point to have us in the office in person so that she could clarify the riders and make sure that we knew how to communicate with the management company and landlord. I would definitely work with Andi again and have already recommended Alpha and Andi to some friends interested in moving in the near future.
This review is specifically for the broker Mike Chang: My roommate and I had been looking at apartments in Manhattan with other brokers and management companies before We met Mike .We were very disappointed with their professionalism, honesty, and ability to take our wants and requirements for our apartment into considerations. Mike, however, responded promptly. He took the initiative to even point out a listing the next day of our call to him.
Mike was punctual and came prepared for the showing .He was also highly transparent through the process, and gave us advice and suggestions.
The next day we met with him and we weren''t so impressed with the first apartment but he was prepared with printouts of other apartments.
It was nice to have choices and an agent who was by our side and fighting for us. We think very highly of him.
After 5 viewings, one apartment stood out! With the proper paperwork, our application was submitted for approval. We''re so happy to have found our apartment and thankful Mike was there to help us!Finding an apartment is a difficult thing to do but don''t stress out. You will have choices.... maybe not as many as you would think BUT there are some places that are gems. You just have to stick it out... and have a great agent who cares for real estate work. Mike Chang is one of them!
After meeting few NYC''s brokers I can tell for sure that the best broker I''ve met was Andi from Alpha. Even though we decided to stay in our current place She gave us a professional service, always answer on time & full of honesty... Not too mention she is absolutely beautiful!
I''m sure that next year I will call this office again & look for her.
Have a great summer Andi & AlphaNYC
