What are the most common complaints about living in New York? The winters, the tourists, and finding affordable yet livable housing? Well, luckily, avoiding (at least) one of these urban foibles is as easy as contacting Mr. Alan Moretz.

Some background: my two roommates and I were trying to find a reasonably-priced 3BR apartment in the Bushwick/Ridgewood area, and it was not going particularly well. To be fair, our application profile was less than ideal, as among the three of us, there were credit problems, unemployment, and low-incomes galore. We did, however, have two solid guarantors on our side. That being said, we worked with a larger brokerage firm for three weeks with almost zero success. Few places we were shown impressed us, and none of the landlords seemed to be interested in renting to us.

Eventually, we reached out to Alan, and within five minutes of e-mailing him with the details of our predicament, he had called to schedule a showing that same day. This was 11:49am on a Thursday. After seeing the (sufficiently nice) place Thursday evening and submitting some basic paperwork Thursday night/Friday morning, we were meeting the landlord and signing the lease at 11:45am Friday morning. In other words, fewer than 24 hours elapsed between first contact with Alan and our lease signing.

Obviously your timeline may vary, but the fact remains that Alan is incredibly responsive, informative, and concerned with adapting to his clients' circumstances. There was absolutely no deception or pressure from Alan's end, and he was fully willing to work with us on our accelerated timeline and provide any advice we desired to assuage the concerns and paranoia we had developed on account of our, let us say, "rough," experiences with other brokers.

Common sense dictates that "the little guys" or "mom and pop shops" always provide a better customer experience. The last few months have, in our minds, validated such wisdom, as working with Alan's self-owned Coda Real Estate NYC afforded us not only a quality product (the apartment we ended up renting from Alan fit our needs perfectly) but an exemplary custom service experience.

From our perspective, there is no better way to find an apartment in the north Brooklyn/south Queens area than to work with Alan Moretz.

Alan was a complete lifesaver for my brother and I after we got dragged around by Nooklyn. We had been applying to places for 2 weeks with the other company only to be let down multiple times. Finally, after much frustration with Nooklyn, my brother found a listing by Coda Real Estate NYC and decided to reach out to Alan Moretz about an apartment. Not only did he reply to my brother's email within 5 minutes, he offered to show us the place that same day! After seeing the apartment at 5, we applied, got accepted and signed by the next morning. If it weren't for Alan both my brother and I would still be couch surfing. (I moved from out of state this week) Not only is he efficient at his job, he is personable, honest, and genuinely concerned about helping his clients. I would 100% recommend him and will surely use him for my future rentals. Skip the hassle of working with bigger companies and use Alan Moretz at Coda Real Estate NYC! You won't be sorry.

Alan has to be by far the best broker in NYC! I had such a great experience working with him in finding my new home. =) Everything from his quick and thorough responses, being very accommodating, to answering any question I had. Alan is super friendly, genuine and easy going guy. I have nothing but great things to say about Alan and his team and I definitely recommend him and Coda if you are looking for a place to call home in the city. They will make your experience more pleasant than you could ever imagine!

Alan saved my (housing)life within a 24 hour period. I had a horrible experience w a previous broker which involved me signing a lease, paying all fees and deposits and then the day before my move, was informed the tenant wasn't leaving and I had nowhere to go. A friend got me in touch w Alan and he sorted every last detail, every bit of paperwork & payment within 1 day. I moved into an incredible apartment. Alan and his co. Coda are amazing, truly good people, and I will be forever grateful.

Alan is the best. He's the only real estate agent I've ever liked as an agent and a person, and I felt completely comfortable working with him from start to finish. He goes above and beyond to help his clients and works tirelessly to make sure they get everything they want and know everything they need to know. He's the only agent I plan on using in my future apartment searches.

We all know moving sucks, but Alan made it so that the whole process didn't seem so daunting. He walked us through the process, showed us the same place multiple times to ease any doubts and entertained all of our ridiculous questions. He was always prompt, courteous and forthcoming with information and even if he didn't know the answer, he found out right away. If NYC real estate is a dark, cold and unfamiliar ocean filled with slippery eels, Alan is a lighthouse. Thanks for bringing us home.

Alan is a great broker to work with. He doesn't pressure you and is very honest. In every apartment we looked at, he would lay out the pros and cons. He didn't hide anything, didn't give us the run-around, just gave us the facts. He found us a great place so hopefully we don't have to move soon, but when we do, we will certainly be calling Alan again.

Alan Moretz of Linnaeus Group was a fantastic broker. Very honest and helpful, and super responsive even over weekends. He worked to negotiate a lease we were happy with, even though it took several rounds with the landlord.

Alan rented my roommates and I an apartment last year and it was a great experience. Recently I saw some listings of his here and contacted him when I was considering moving in to a smaller place to live with my girlfriend. He didn't have anything that fit our needs at the time but he was super helpful and gave us some great advice and provided wonderful service. I definitely plan to ask Alan for his help if I need a new apartment again.

Alan is the best! I rarely rate services but Alan deserves one. With my situation, I was worried that I would never get a decent apartment. Alan responded to my email, listened to my concerns and vision for my ideal apartment and poof, he found me an amazing place! I can't stop smiling :)

Alan is the first broker I've worked with that I felt actually earned his broker's fee. He's incredibly prompt, friendly, genuine, flexible, and not pushy in the least. He hooked us up with a perfect apartment in the neighborhood we wanted at a price we knew we couldn't beat anywhere else. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
