Zach was dilligent, professional and listened. Pleasure to work with.
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.
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 am happy to share my positive experience with Olga. She showed excellent market knowledge, good communication and negotiating skills, I was able to find the property I wanted to and sign a lease on terms that satisfy me completely.
Olga was a fabulous help to me. She worked with me in a cold snowing January browsing all this apartments in midtown for 3 hours back and forth with helpful advice, income etc. She made it all very easy, warm and cosy. Appeared to be one you could trust.
The most important thing in renting is the paper work which Olga has again been very professional. All went smooth and quick.
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.
Alpha NYC has been a pleasure to work with. This past summer we used several brokers, but nobody was able to find what we were looking for. Thankfully, we worked with Tom Beron, who was extremely helpful, competent, and efficient. He quickly found us the perfect apartment, and even knocked $250 from the original price. He also charges a very fair and competitive broker''s fee. I was abroad when my roommates found the apartment, and Tom was very understanding and patient when receiving all of my paperwork. He is very practical, knowing exactly what needs to be done and when. I will definitely be recommending him to everyone I know.
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.
My roommates and I were looking for a 3 BR apt in the Gramercy/Flatiron area. This, being my third apartment search, I was quite familiar with how difficult it is to find a good apartment in NYC and the right broker. Through Alpha Properties, we worked with Tom Beron who blew away all our expectations. Not only did he find us a great a place at a very reasonable price, but he was very easy to work with. Throughout our search and application process he was very patient, never pushy, and always seemed to be working for our best interests. He had a lot of good listings to show us and worked with all our needs to ensure we would get the place we wanted. It was great having Tom as a broker and I would recommend him to anyone else looking for an apartment in NYC.
I loved my experience with Alpha. Alexander helped me with my search and was diligent and understood 100% what I was looking for. I fully recommend him if you are looking for committed and honest broker.
Israel is a true professional. I had been referred to him by a good friend who had worked with him and trusted his services. I had been introduced to a number or agents prior & Israel stood apart. He listen to my needs, utilized his network & experience; MOST IMPORTANTLY WAS ALWAYS AVAILABLE when I needed him. Israel is now a trusted friend & certainly a must have on your team.
