Andi did an awesome job with finding us a place DURING the hurricane! Saved me. Thanks a bunch
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).
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.
I worked with Andi! She worked so hard to get me the perfect apartment. I was super stressed during the process, but Andi helped me keep my cool! She''s a great agent and if I ever move in NYC again, I will definately use her!
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.
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 came across one of Nadav’s postings by total serendipity, and I’m so glad I did. Throughout our interactions he was honest, warm, forthcoming, timely, helpful, and dedicated. When I didn’t get the first apartment I put in an application for ( I moved a bit too slow), he helped me find something that was an even better fit. Within a day he lined up several other places to show me- thoughtful of my priorities and criteria in location, space, & price. He appeared to take on a personal stake in finding the right home for me. I felt that, at every stage of the process, Nadav went above and beyond. For example, he stayed late so I could come and sign the application. He even came with me after the lease was signed to help me take measurements of the new space which was incredibly kind. Moving, even under auspicious circumstances, can be an arduous, daunting, and stressful experience. Nadav made the whole process a bit easier and way more fun for me. Next time I have friends moving into the city, I’ll insist they reach out to Nadav straight away.

Omer was always professional, polite and punctual. No problems at all. Thanks!
My roommates and I were looking for a 3 BR apt in the Gramercy/Flatiron area. This, being my third apartment search, I was quite familiar with how difficult it is to find a good apartment in NYC and the right broker. Through Alpha Properties, we worked with Tom Beron who blew away all our expectations. Not only did he find us a great a place at a very reasonable price, but he was very easy to work with. Throughout our search and application process he was very patient, never pushy, and always seemed to be working for our best interests. He had a lot of good listings to show us and worked with all our needs to ensure we would get the place we wanted. It was great having Tom as a broker and I would recommend him to anyone else looking for an apartment in NYC.
We used Gilad Talmor of Alpha Properties to find a four-bedroom/ flex five in New York City. He was very knowledgable of the market, and always seemed to put the client first. He had a ton of listings that fit exactly what we were looking for and never wasted our time. Gilad was very easy to talk to, and he always seemed to make himself available whether it be by phone, email, or in person. Recommend using him for your next apartment search, because he will make the process that much easier especially if you are a first timer.
