Gilad handled the rental of our unit at 64 Second Avenue and his work was brilliant. He moved immediately, bringing us his clients in one day, to our surprise--and while acting aggressively for his clients' interest, getting us to agree to build three new bedrooms, he was also extremely aware of our concerns and needs. This allowed us to get to a quick, positive result for all.
We'd be more than happy to have Gilad handle our rentals in the future.
I was looking for an apartment in last December. When everyone in the world was enjoying Christmas spirit, I was getting frustrated with finding a place. There were so many misleading and fraudulent postings, my budget was a bit tight, and I have a dog. Then I finally met Mike Chang! He literally emailed me back in 5 minutes after I contacted him. He sent me a list of questions asking if I meet all qualifications. When I said yes, he immediately set up a tour on the very same night. He showed me three apartments in a safe and great neighborhood with perfect subway lines. After the tour, we started preparing all necessary paperwork and my application was pre-approved in less than 2 days. Mike was constantly contacting the management company and worked so hard to expedite the whole process. I had to be out of town for few days during the application process, but I had no problem communicating with him. He answered all my questions with patience and made sure I was clear on everything. After a week or so, I signed the lease. I love my apartment and greatly appreciate for what he did for me. I really think this was the best deal and Mike worked his magic. Not only he is professional and smart, he was very sweet for sending me a card after I officially moved in :)
The best part of my experience working with Alpha Management was hands down working with James Finelli. In fact, if it weren’t for James’ hard work and dedication, my roommate and I likely would still be looking, months later, for an apartment. Throughout the duration of the application process--I had a good amount of doubt that we’d get the place, but James reassured me every step of the way. James REALLY worked hard for my roommate and I.
Finding a dedicated and ambitious realtor that puts in 110% when working with a client --alongside many others-- is very rare in the city. So if you want the real deal, work with James. I’m a strong judge of character and he’s the man-- he will work around the clock to not let you down. Oh and I almost forgot to mention--he’s a dime; a TEN wouldn’t do him justice.
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!
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 definitely use her! Thanks Andi!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
