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.
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
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.
Israel was referred to me by a friend who had a great experience with him and spoke of his honesty and how he "is not like other brokers." Over the course of a couple of weekends, I needed to make the most of my apartment hunting time prior to relocating to NY from another city. On virtually a day''s notice, Israel gave me a few hours of his time on both Saturday and Sunday, and I had a sense that he had taken note of my preferences and priorities and did additional work for me to prepare for the following weekend of apartment hunting. I was very impressed with his accessibility and responsiveness. Israel is also very up front and honest, setting expectations for how we would be able to work within my preferences. I felt that I could trust him, and that he was a knowledgeable source of information for living in NY in general, as well as the particulars of the rental market in certain neighborhoods. If you are in need of assistance with apartment hunting, especially if you are coming in from out of town and have never lived in New York, I would highly recommend Israel to ensure that you have someone you can trust on your side for the difficult adventure that is apartment hunting in NYC.
I recently secured a lovely apartment through Asaf Cohen. I saw a few places with him, and many others with other brokers, and in my experience, Asaf was very friendly, patient, thorough and not at all pushy. He listened to my needs and treated me with respect. Apartment hunting in NY is a hideous experience but working with Asaf went very smoothly. He turned the application around very fast, shaved some money off the rent and got me the move in date I had wanted. I''m now living in a fantastic new home which I couldn''t be happier with.
I had a great experience with Alpha properties. Mike Chang was amazing - he negotiated us a price lower than the listing, a lower broker fee and even offered to hang our shower rod for us - I would definitely recommend finding a place through him. I will certainly be going back to Alpha Properties next time I move
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!
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.
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!
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.
