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.
We were new to New York and America and were incredibly lucky to find our broker Tom Beron at Alpha. Tom was incredibly generous with his time and advice and was invaluable to helping us find a flat and get settled in the city. We gave him a really hard brief as we didn''t know the city but Tom was patient and accommodating working out what and where suited us best. I would highly recommend him.

Gili showed me a number of beautiful apartments that exactly fit what I needed. She was extremely approachable and friendly. Once we picked an apartment, she laid out the process in simple terms and guided us through every step, keeping us updated as she put in our application. I would strongly recommend her as a real estate agent.
"I had a great experience working with Gili during my apartment search. She was very flexible with my schedule, and she showed me places that were in my price range, and just what I was looking for. She works harder than all of the other brokers I have worked with, and listens to find you the perfect apartment!"
"Danny helped us find a very nice rental in midtown east. In the few hours we spent with him, he was very intuitive in understanding what our needs were and he showed us several units that had everything we were looking for. We could have picked any of the apartments he showed us and we would have been very satisfied. What we really appreciated about Danny was that he was considerate, not pushy and remained readily reachable. I would recommend Danny to my friends and colleagues with no reservation. "
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.
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.
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).
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.
"Dafna was an amazing asset in our search for our perfect apartment. She went out of her way to make sure that the broker process was simple enough for us to complete as a full time student and full time lawyer with little free time. The entire arrangement was always transparent and 6 months after signing our lease, I still recommend her to friends."
• To Whom it may concern,
I am writing in regards about your employee Dafna. I Had the pleasure in working with her on finding my new apartment back in November. She was so accommodating in showing the apartment I wanted to see. Dafna is great with people and made me feel comfortable in making a very big decision. She is timely, professional, and knowledgeable about her field of work. I am very lucky to have worked with her and super pleased about my living situation and how it all came to fruition. I would recommend Dafna to anyone who is looking for an apartment.
This was my first apartment by myself, so naturally I had all sorts of weird requirements, silly questions, and tons of hesitation in signing a lease. Dafna was very understanding, and she was more than willing to show me one particular apartment more than once. I had actually met her a few weeks ago when she showed me another apartment that didn't work out. Out of all the brokers in the city, I guess I was really meant to rent from her! I knew I had to have the apartment as soon as Dafna showed it to me, and she was very helpful in making that happen. We rushed to her office as soon as I decided, and I was out of there in under an hour. When there was a slight snag in the management company's scheduling, Dafna was very responsive, and worked with me as much as she could to come up with a viable solution. I love my apartment now, and Dafna is to thank!
Dear Dafna - You assisted us with getting an apartment for my daughter, Casey (Katherine) Smart, at Mulberry Street, and on which I am a co-signer. However, neither of us received a copy of the signed lease and I am writing to you now to ask that you send a copy to me at: Cynthia Smart Smart Legal Assistance 701 4th Ave. S. Suite 201 Minneapolis, MN 55415 She loves the apartment! Our compliments and thanks for your excellent, swift, professional and friendly service! Happy Spring! Thanks - Cynthia Smart
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.
