"He really listened to everything I wanted and was respectful of my budget. Within just two days he found my dream place and by the end of the week I had signed a lease. He was friendly and kind and always available for any questions even after the lease was signed. I would definitely recommend Best Apartments, and specifically Alan to everyone!" Simha K. "We recently had an excellent experience with Alan.We were relocating to NYC and had only a few days for reconnaissance in NY. Many other brokers acted as if this was a huge imposition, but Alan immediately - and intelligently - selected a cross-section of apartments in our geographic area and across our price range. This "crash course" in the NY market enabled us to make an informed decision when Alan showed us the apartment we ended up taking. Al really knows the Manhattan rental market-- and we recommend him highly." Bette S.
