Ami is a wonderful broker who really cares about finding his clients a great deal. He was really helpful with trying to figure out what exactly I wanted (e.g., deal breakers, space requirements, location, etc.) and then doing an initial filter to make sure we didn''t waste time viewing apartments I wasn''t interested in. Furthermore, he was able to help me look at a place before it hit the market so that I could move fast on it. He is definitely someone I would work with again in case I ever need to find another apartment and he is someone I would refer to other people.
I had a nice experience with Alpha Properties recently. We had limited budget but we got a very good apt through Alpha. The agent, Jacob Cohen, is friendly and patient. He showed us 7+ apts on the first day. And we were interested in 2 of them. And we had need credit guarantor when we were signing the lease. Jacob also helped us a lot with that. Great thanks to Jacob and Alpha!
Etai Shickler was prompt in replying to my request to see apartments and worked with my busy schedule to look at places. I had a pretty strict set of criteria which he understood and delivered on every time. There was no filler in the places he had me view. All were gems that spoke to my needs.
Etai is a great broker and a genuine person. Do yourself a favor and contact him right away. You won''t regret it!
I contacted a lot of brokers while I was desperately looking for a new place. A year ago I was forced to move out of my apartment within 10 days. I didn''t want to move away from the upper east side so I tried to find something close to my old place. As soon as the brokers found out that I am from Europe they told me I would never be able to get an apartment unless I earn enough money and have someone guarantee for me that earns even more money. After a very long day of looking at apartments that were simply inacceptable I met with Andi Antonucci from alpha properties. I had almost given up hope, I had to move out the next day and so far not seen a single place that was close to what I was looking for. I told her right away that I am not a US resident and that my salary was not as high as expected, but that I would still be able to pay for everything. First thing she said was that I shouldnt worry, she would find an apartment for me. She was so nice and said she would only show me apartments from where she knew the landlords could accept me. Out of all brokers I met with she was the only person who actually showed me apartments within my price range and exactly in the neighborhood where I wanted to live. I moved into a beautiful and perfect one-bedroom apartment only four days later! Everyone at alpha properties new york, especially Andi Antonucci, was so caring and nice and really eager to make it happen for me to not only move in asap but actually find the place I was looking for.
I can only recommend alpha properties!
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.
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%
Andi made our entire apartment hunting process super easy. We had been bait-and-switched by brokers a few times, but Alpha Properties completely alleviated any worries we had about the tough NYC real estate market. We actually applied for our apartment with CitiHabitats, paid the fee, and then were told the unit was rented to someone else at the last minute. We later met with Andi, who informed us the same unit was still on the market, and after checking with the landlord, told us that they had never received our application the first time we applied with Citi. We then ran down to her office, put in the app, and got everything taken care of very quickly. She was helpful, personable, and very professional. She knows the UES market really well; I''d definitely recommend her.
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.
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!
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.
