what our clients think

Had an amazing experience working with Etan! He was took me around to tons of different apartments and was amazing to work with. He was also very patient with my indecisiveness and helped talk me through my decision. I cannot recommend him enough!

I had never worked with a broker before, but Victor made my first experience absolutely delightful. He knew all the right questions to ask, how to make us feel like we were making the right choices and always always going the extra mile. We did not have an easy experience finding a place, but Victor make us comfortable and dealt with challenges like a true professional. He is smart, thoughtful and fun! I would highly recommend working with Victor!

Victor was the best and made the search for an apartment as stress-free and fun as possible! We had a few road bumps during our search (none of them his fault!), but Victor was always thinking ahead, looking out for my and my roommate''s best interests, and was so knowledgeable about everything — all while being such a sweet, gentle, and calming presence. I can''t thank Victor or recommend him enough! Use him for your search and you won''t be disappointed.

One of the best brokers I've come across in the city. Jonny went above and beyond to ensure we get a good deal on our apartment, and was super helpful with any difficulties we had!

Worked with Joe Tartaglia. Super nice and very helpful. We secured an apartment in 24 hours with little to no hassle.

Definitely will reccommend Joe to anyone who is moving to NYC!

Victor was completely awesome and helpful during my search. He spoke confidently, transparently, and with I could tell he had my best interest in mind. As someone just out of college and going through the process for the first time, I felt really comfortable communicating with Victor and he was nothing but enthusiastic and accommodating!

Elana was referred through a family friend, and now I definitely know why. The REAL NY recruits not only solid brokers, but warm and kind ones. In a city where real estate is incredible cut throat and at times aggressive, it was refreshing and comforting to know I had a broker that cared and was doing a lot of the leg work. Elana is hardworking and passionate about real estate, making her incredibly good at her job. Not only is she well aware of every neighborhood, she’ll negotiate for you, ask the right questions but most importantly she’ll find your home in New York City! A city that is crowded and small, sometimes you get lost in the mix, but Elana is a burst of high energy mixed with love and professionalism, I was truly lucky to have her.

I am so grateful for Johnson Tsai’s professional and personable service! He helped my roommate and I snag a great deal in West Harlem, and did a seamless job handling communication with various listings while both of us were out of state/abroad. All throughout the hunting, viewing, application, and move in process, Johnson thoroughly answered our many questions as first time NYC renters. He offered helpful insight and always patiently explained the expectations that come with renting an apartment in the city, which really helped ease our anxieties. I would highly recommend Johnson Tsai for anyone looking to find a place to call home in New York!

Sam Trenk was our agent throughout the process of acquiring 159 W 53rd St 36H. Sam found the apartment online for us to observe. She then put together a list of 20 apartments that met all our criteria. She organized apartment showings so that we were able to visit all 20 apartments in a day and a half! We found the absolute perfect home. Sam then walked us through the whole acquiring process and put together the financial package for the property manager. All throughout, Sam was always professional, patient, honest, kind, warm, friendly.....I felt like she was part of the family! I could not have completed this process and found the perfect home without her. What a godsend!!! Thank you so so much!!!!!

Elana was invaluable in my search for a new apartment. She understood what I was looking for and opened up great opportunities that I wouldn’t have otherwise found. She was friendly, attentive, and made sure I was securing the right terms on what we found. I could not recommend her more highly and would be my first point of contact when I next move. Thanks again.
