My sister and I recently worked with Mike Chang and he was great! We were very pleased with the level of service he offered us. He really took his time when showing us apartments, answered all of our questions, and worked hard to negotiate different items with the management company. He helped us every step of the way and under his guidance, our application was approved & we successfully received our new apartment!! Thanks again Mike!
My roommate and I worked exclusively with Mike Chang. We were very pleased with our experience. Many NYC real estate brokers are short and dismissive. Mike was always a pleasant person to work with. He was very helpful and answered almost all questions we had. He was very responsive and accommodating throughout the whole process. In the end, we owe the successful application for our current apartment to him. I would definitely recommend him to a friend. Thanks Mike!
I had an excellent experience working with Gilad. I was in a hurry to find an apartment, and it took only three days from initial viewing to signing. Due to my employment, I have fairly stringent requirements with regards to signing a lease, and he was very helpful through the process.
Overall, I really recommend Gilad as an excellent and accommodating broker.
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 roomie and I had been tirelessly searching for an apartment for the month of October (due to some nightmarish roommate situations- but that''s another story) before recently signing a lease and moving into a really great apartment in the Upper East Side. Our agent, Andi Antonucci, was more than helpful in helping us find a home that was within our budget as well as within our preferences. She was always very prompt and polite in replying to emails, texts, and phonecalls and was very diligent throughout the entire process (all of which occurred in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy! She even met up with us to show us an apartment (which we now call home) late in the evening when both my roomie and I were both free to see it together.
The majority of agents my roommate and I had interacted with before coming to Alpha and to Andi, were your stereotypical realty slimeballs who probably didn''t care much for helping you find an actual home, but rather were more concerned with the numbers game, making a profit, and moving onto the next "client". Seriously- some of these guys will lie through their teeth and say anything to make the sell. I could see right through their bullshit.
So thank you Andi and Alpha Properties, thank you for being so sweet and professional, thank you for helping us find a place we can really call home, and thank you for being a HUMAN. Other agents- please take note.
She waived our application fee!
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.
Andi was really responsive and on top of the game. She was really flexible with timing and understanding. We are still deciding on the apartment but I would still recommend Andi. She will be very helpful and quick to address your needs!
Working with Alpha was by far the best experience I''ve had with a broker or estate agent in the US or the UK.
Our broker is Alexander Miller. We spent days with other brokers looking at tiny studios, out of our price range, and fulfilling none of the requirements that we''d identified.
Alex showed us two places in about 15 minutes - both great deals, both beautiful, big apartments.
Alex is clearly really immersed and interested in his industry, and definitely does his research as he was able to find us two great options for a steal. We snapped up the first apartment we saw with Alex in the end.
Next step, having only just arrived from London, was to get all our paperwork in order so that we could move on the flat. Alex was really helpful and basically let us use his office like our own - we used spare computers and printed off stuff on Alpha''s printer. He even let us use a spare phone to make arrangements with our bank for payments to be made.
All in all, Alex and Alpha made it super easy for us to secure an amazing apartment at a really cheap rate. Highly recommend.
"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 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!
