My parents and I had a very positive experience with Alpha Properties!
We had never rented an apartment before and our agent, Saul Cohen, was
very patient, knowledgeable, hospitable, prompt, and helpful.
He first showed us multiple apartments. They were all clean, within
our budget, and in good neighborhoods. When we decided on an apartment
that we wanted to rent, Saul worked with us to
complete the necessary paperwork. He was exceedingly helpful
and patient, and we never felt pressured or rushed.He was happy to
answer any questions we had.
I highly recommend Alpha Properties NYC to anyone looking for an
apartment in the city. Ask for Saul! You won''t be disappointed.
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!
I worked with Andi Antonucci on getting a place of my own. She was very communicative and did a great job steering me in the right direction. She was honest up front about any fees and negotiable on her already low broker fee. Ms. Antonucci was willing to ride all over Manhattan in a taxi to ensure that I got the apartment that I wanted, and I really appreciated her dedication. If I don''t renew my lease on the space I just signed for, Alpha Properties will definitely be my first phone call when I start my next search.
Olga worked tirelessly to find the perfect place for my family. I felt like she really listened to what our needs were and scoured the market to find us our apartment. Our want list was pretty tough, but I knew when she showed me an apartment she did a good job pre-qualifying it for us.
I had a great experience using Gilad Talmor from Alpha Properties NYC. I was in a crunch to find an apartment over a long weekend and was moving from out of town. With one phone call, he set up several viewings in my location, amenity and price range requirements. He was responsive from the moment I indicated I wanted to submit an application to the lease signing and beyond, offering to gather measurements and floor plan details himself. Gilad also communicates through email and text, which I found very helpful in a notoriously fast-moving process. We were able to secure a fantastic apartment that far exceeded my expectations. He also negotiated the rent down and provided an 2-year lease option that was beyond expectation.
My roommates and I moved from out of state, which is daunting as it is. We spent our first few days in NYC working with a terrible brokerage firm that conveniently only had apartments at our maximum price ( even though the location was undesirable- East Harlem!!?) Finding Alpha was like coming home. Andi helped us find an apartment in one day that was beautiful ( hardwood floors, large living area, windows in every room) in the area we wanted ( Upper West Sidea) and below our maximum price. We were able to sign the lease in a few days and move in less than a week later! I absolutely recommend Alpha...for anyone moving- choose wisely- picking the wrong realtor is a nightmare.
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).
Gilad handled the rental of our unit at 64 Second Avenue and his work was brilliant. He moved immediately, bringing us his clients in one day, to our surprise--and while acting aggressively for his clients' interest, getting us to agree to build three new bedrooms, he was also extremely aware of our concerns and needs. This allowed us to get to a quick, positive result for all.
We'd be more than happy to have Gilad handle our rentals in the future.
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.
Dear Mr. Zachi,
We arrived in New York from California last week in an effort to find our son an apartment as he was starting a new job the following day. Coming from California, we never realized how difficult and stressful this process could be. We were so fortunate to meet one of your agents, Adam Barry. He was extremely helpful in showing us properties that met most of the criteria we were hoping to find for our son. Adam was always on time, very diligent and really helped put our mind at ease. He kept in constant communication with us throughout the entire process and made us feel that he would be someone we could count on, and he certainly has proven that to be true. Thanks to Adam, our son got an apartment in record time and is extremely happy with both the apartment and the neighborhood. We wanted to recognize his efforts as we feel lucky to have worked with him and also feel he is an asset to Alpha Properties, Inc.
