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.
For Omer Levy. It was a pleasure to work with Omer. He is a friendly jovial guy promptly responded to calls and texts, and got us the best deal on the apartment we wanted. Definitely recommend him!
Zach was dilligent, professional and listened. Pleasure to work with.
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.
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).
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!
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!
We were new to New York and America and were incredibly lucky to find our broker Tom Beron at Alpha. Tom was incredibly generous with his time and advice and was invaluable to helping us find a flat and get settled in the city. We gave him a really hard brief as we didn''t know the city but Tom was patient and accommodating working out what and where suited us best. I would highly recommend him.
Jack & Nicola
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.
I also wanted to tell you how grateful I am for your help in our apartment search these past couple months. You really went above and beyond for us, and I so appreciate your constant communication and dedication to finding us the best apt.
You always made time for us, and were so on top of being flexible around our changing schedules, and organizing many visits to numerous apartments.
We are thrilled with our new home!
I am referring one of my friends to you,I know you will be a wonderful resource for them.
