I interacted with multiple brokers while looking for a Manhattan apartment, and Mike Chang was by far the most helpful, responsive, and professional agent I encountered. After making an online inquiry I received a phone call from him just a few short hours later. After realizing the apartment I was interested in wasn''t right for me, he began looking for others immediately. Unlike other brokers, Mike wasn''t pushy about renting an apartment outside of my price range- when I told him my preferred budget, he stuck to it. If you''ve had any experience with brokers in Manhattan you will know this is a very rare quality! Mike was always responsive to text messages and phone calls, and stayed in constant communication about meetings and appointments. Even after my lease signing he continued to help with questions I had for my building''s property management company.
Overall, I don''t think I could have had a better apartment search experience with any other broker. I highly recommend this trustworthy and professional agent for anyone looking for a Manhattan apartment. Thanks Mike!
Mike Chang is the real deal. Not only did he respond to our inquiry quickly and professionally, he went to great lengths to find us the perfect fit. Navigating the market for an apartment in Manhattan can be more than daunting, but his compassionate approach eased our worries. He is a client-focused, hard-working, and knowledgeable broker.
We did not ultimately rent from Mike because of a fluke opening in our current building, but he will be our go-to guy in the future and we will DEFINITELY recommend him to our friends.
I worked with Tom Beron for a couple of months this year.
I found Tom to be pleasant, hard working and friendly.
He asked me lots of questions to hone in on what I was looking for...
And he had a good inventory of apartments to show in the area I was looking.
If I ever need a broker, I would gladly work with Tom again.
David was a gentleman.
Extremely easy to work with.
Quick in responding to messages.
Showed very competitive listings.
Zach was dilligent, professional and listened. Pleasure to work with.
Dean was a great agent! Made it super easy and quick for our move.
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.

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.
It was a pleasure working with Alpha Properties. We worked with Yana and she was very helpful and knowledgeable and showed us exactly the kinds of places we were looking for. I would recommend her to anyone!
"Liz was incredibly kind, professional, and helpful in helping us find the perfect NYC apartment. She listened to our needs and only showed us options that we could actually see ourselves living, which was awesome. She valued our time and made the leasing process seamless and successful!"
