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.
I worked with Michael Chang, who was extremely hands-on, helpful, and dependable. If I called him he was always there to answer my call, and met with me at very short notice on multiple occasions. When I expressed my budget, he made sure not go over it, and actually ended up finding my boyfriend and me a place below the number we were expecting to spend (hard request to get filled in this city). I highly recommend Alpha based solely on my experience with Mike, who literally found us the apartment of our dreams in a day!
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
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!
Keren was the perfect broker. She has been caring, active and very good giving us advise, as it is our first time in the city searching for a new home. I highly recommend her if you want to have a happy and easy process searching your new home.
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.
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.
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!
I have worked with Alpha Properties on my last two apartments and the experience overall has been great. Yes - it is expensive to work with a realtor, but to be honest, it is impossible to find good apartments in NYC while avoiding a fee. Alpha has a great number of exclusive inventory that is worth every penny.
Joe was a pleasure to work with - he was honest, and knew exactly what I wanted. I was able to find an apartment i loved, apply, and get approved in a matter of a couple of days. No stress. Highly recommended!
Mike is a kind-hearted broker - the one that anyone would want when they are looking for a place to live.
In the world of apartment searching, there are many lies and deceit, but NOT with Mike! He is a 100% genuine person, and a pleasure to work with. Very friendly.
My first experience was in January- I had a friend living in Chicago who needed a place in NYC, but didn''t have a chance to fly out here to secure an apartment. This friend asked me to do him a huge favor and meet up with Mike to look at some places... it was GREAT! Mike was awesome. It was cold, but he was able to take me around in his SUV. We saw 15-20 places, many of which were quite different from one another, which is a great trait to have when viewing places. My friend in Chicago chose one of those places, and when cashier''s checks needed to be given, Mike met me at my office (all the way down in the Financial district) during my lunch hour to pick up the checks. He is great.
And when I needed a place to live a couple months later, you can guess who I called. Mike Chang. A broker king among broker peasants.
