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.
They have the best listings, we checked with other reality companies and they just didn''t show the same quality apartments. Also the application process was very smooth!
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.
My roommate and I are recent college grads. Michael Chang was very responsible and knowledgeable about the document requirements, which just made our apartment hunting so much easier. He''s also very responsive about text, email, and phone calls. A five star rating without a doubt!
I recently transitioned from LA to NYC for a job opportunity. I wanted to be close to work on the Upper West Side. My family mentioned I needed a broker since I was also moving my family and needed the space. I found Israel the VP from Alpha Properties on craigslist but was sceptical dealing with him since I was remote from LA. He knows the Upper West Side pretty well and since I was very particular about things, Israel knew where to look at. I had my brother-in-law meet up with him and Israel was very accomodating. My brother-in-law knew my taste and after viewing 3 buildings, Israel found an apartment with all the amenities I asked for and is only a 1 1/2 block walk to work. Even though we ran through some hurdles with the management company (not his fault), that didn''t stop him from reassuring me that the we have the lease. During the month we communicated remotely prior to signing the lease, he was very responsive even past 9pm ET (6PM PT), never rushed me to signing a lease, and had an overall great attitude even when I was running late. I had a backup broker on standby but never needed him since Israel never wasted my time when I was shopping for an apartment. Thank you Israel for such a pleasant experience.
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.
Gili is wonderful. Really takes the time to search and identifies with your cause. If you want to feel like you have a team for your apartment hunt. Gili is the perfect match. She will show you the most appropriate places according to your budget and also to your taste. Recommended 100%
We worked with Mike Chang from Alpha Properties while searching for our first apartment in NYC and were 100% pleased. We were looking for a 2 bedroom on the Upper East Side. My roommate and I saw Mike''s listing on Craig''s List listing and were able to visit that day. We really liked the apartment, but knew we had a particular situation as one of us was currently out of the country. He met with my roommate that night to discuss the application process and the best plan of action. He was diligent in helping us through the process and worked intently to ensure we accepted and approved in a timely manner. Mike was professional and responsive throughout the entire process which really put us at ease. We had worked with an unreliable broker beforehand and were so pleased to have found Mike. He made the process easy and much less stressful. Can''t say thanks enough. Highly recommended!
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.
Being new to the city I was not sure what to expect in my search for my apartment. Alexander from Alpha Properties was great. I gave him the details of what I was looking for and the next day he showed me 9 or 10 different places in the neighborhood I was interested in until we found the right one. He was very responsive to all of my questions via text, email or phone call and showed a genuine interest and concern in finding me the right place!
