Mike Chang was insightful and perceptive in finding a property quickly to suit my needs perfectly. He took the steps to close the deal in a timely fashion and I''m very happy in my new place
I highly recommend Mike Chang. He is reliable, honest and polite ( big plus when dealing with brokers in NYC) He was able to get the ball rolling on an apartment that i liked the very next day. He was always easy reach and made the entire process really smooth. I''d give this guy a call if you’re looking for a place in New York!
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 communicat...
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 pro...
I was on the hunt under a very tight timeline and I had found Mike Chang who was absolutely incredible. I have lived in New York City almost my entire life and I am extremely knowledgeable about the rental market. When I spoke with Mike I was very specific in my demands and I told him that I didn''t have time to go see many places. I gave him the specifics and he way surpassed my expectations based on the limited inventory that was available in the Upper East Side. Not only did he get me a place that was incredible but he got it within four blocks of my old place.
Everyone knows that moving is extremely stressful and he completely alleviated a lot of the stress with the paperwork. He is also very knowledgeable with buying and selling of apartments in New York City and I plan to venture/invest in sales and buying a property using his services. I highly recommend using Mike Chang from Al...
My roommate and I are recent college grads. Michael Chang was very responsible and knowledgeable about the document requirements, which just made our apartment hunting so much easier. He''s also very responsive about text, email, and phone calls. A five star rating without a doubt!
I had a great experience with Alpha properties. Mike Chang was amazing - he negotiated us a price lower than the listing, a lower broker fee and even offered to hang our shower rod for us - I would definitely recommend finding a place through him. I will certainly be going back to Alpha Properties next time I move
We worked with Mike Chang from Alpha Properties while searching for our first apartment in NYC and were 100% pleased. We were looking for a 2 bedroom on the Upper East Side. My roommate and I saw Mike''s listing on Craig''s List listing and were able to visit that day. We really liked the apartment, but knew we had a particular situation as one of us was currently out of the country. He met with my roommate that night to discuss the application process and the best plan of action. He was diligent in helping us through the process and worked intently to ensure we accepted and approved in a timely manner. Mike was professional and responsive throughout the entire process which really put us at ease. We had worked with an unreliable broker beforehand and were so pleased to have found Mike. He made the process easy and much less stressful. Can''t say thanks enough. Highly recommended!
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 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...
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...
I was in a bit of a bind trying to find a new apartment before my current lease was up (in a matter of days!) and Mike Chang from Alpha came to the rescue! Firstly, he responded quickly to an e-mail I sent regarding a few postings and set something up for the next day. After getting a good understanding of what I was looking for he mapped out a very efficient and time saving course for checking out a ton of apartments in a short amount of time. He wasted no time trying to persuade me on apartments I didn''t show any interest in and really made the search about me and what I wanted, which was refreshing compared to experiences I had in the past with other agents.
In the end, I found the perfect apartment and Mike encouraged me to move quickly... the two of us rushed to his office to get in the application and necessary paperwork in less than a day! All worked out and I was appro...
I worked with Michael Chang, who was extremely hands-on, helpful, and dependable. If I called him he was always there to answer my call, and met with me at very short notice on multiple occasions. When I expressed my budget, he made sure not go over it, and actually ended up finding my boyfriend and me a place below the number we were expecting to spend (hard request to get filled in this city). I highly recommend Alpha based solely on my experience with Mike, who literally found us the apartment of our dreams in a day!
I had a great experience working with Mike Chang, he really went above and beyond with helping me find a place, especially since I was living in another city at the time and unable to physically be in NYC to sign a lease. He helped me get all the necessary documents together to be able to have an apartment by my short deadline. I would definitely recommend Mike Chang to anyone looking for an apartment.
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!
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!
