My sister and I recently worked with Mike Chang and he was great! We were very pleased with the level of service he offered us. He really took his time when showing us apartments, answered all of our questions, and worked hard to negotiate different items with the management company. He helped us every step of the way and under his guidance, our application was approved & we successfully received our new apartment!! Thanks again Mike!
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.
Israel was excellent at everything that needed to be done when dealing with rental of a coop in New York City. He kept me informed, educated me and handled all negotiations very professionally. I am a demanding client and I am very happy working with him.
Israel is the one of the most talented and dedicated real estate agents (or professionals for that matter) that I have ever met. He knows Manhattan like the back of his hand and always goes the extra mile. NYC is a very difficult place to find real estate for rent or sale if you don''t know what you are doing -- I can''t recommend Israel enough.
Alpha NYC has been a pleasure to work with. This past summer we used several brokers, but nobody was able to find what we were looking for. Thankfully, we worked with Tom Beron, who was extremely helpful, competent, and efficient. He quickly found us the perfect apartment, and even knocked $250 from the original price. He also charges a very fair and competitive broker''s fee. I was abroad when my roommates found the apartment, and Tom was very understanding and patient when receiving all of my paperwork. He is very practical, knowing exactly what needs to be done and when. I will definitely be recommending him to everyone I know.
"From my first meeting with Gili, she has worked tirelessly to find out exactly what I was looking for, and to find a suitable 1 bedroom apartment that I can call my home. She is cheerful and energetic, and most accomodating with my hectic and unpredictable schedule. She has gone above and beyond to survey a great area of Manhattan (the entire East side), for a suitable apartment and then arranged a well-strategized viewing schedule. Most importantly, she is very considerate and did not push for an immediate decision on the apartments that we viewed, but instead offered her thoughtful opinion on the lag between an apartment getting on the market and then becoming occupied. It did happen that an apartment that I really liked was already taken by the time I gathered the application paperword. Gili was amazing and put forth extreme efforts to make sure that I finally got a similar apartment, in the same building. Finally, she helped with the application procedure which went very smooth. All in all, Gili was tremendously helpful, finding us an apartment in a very short time frame, given my extreme schedule restrictions, and she did it cheerfully and light heartedly. I can say that she can easily rival and real estate agent featured in House Hunters".
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!
Zach was dilligent, professional and listened. Pleasure to work with.
I had a great experience using Gilad Talmor from Alpha Properties NYC. I was in a crunch to find an apartment over a long weekend and was moving from out of town. With one phone call, he set up several viewings in my location, amenity and price range requirements. He was responsive from the moment I indicated I wanted to submit an application to the lease signing and beyond, offering to gather measurements and floor plan details himself. Gilad also communicates through email and text, which I found very helpful in a notoriously fast-moving process. We were able to secure a fantastic apartment that far exceeded my expectations. He also negotiated the rent down and provided an 2-year lease option that was beyond expectation.
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!
