Know your customer and know your inventory; that's the foundation for success in the real estate industry. Alek Esposito is continually listening to his clients' needs and watching the market carefully so he is always expert at both. Alek's extensive customer service and sales experience comes from building and running his own wholesale clothing business in the fashion industry. His entrepreneurial drive, business savvy and marketing ingenuity are powerful assets he brings to real estate. More than a rental and sales specialist, Alek is a consultant, advisor and partner who escorts clients through the intricate decision-making and transaction processes with ease. As a born and raised New Yorker who has lived here all his life, Alek is especially excited and stimulated by matching great people with great homes in his favorite city. Over the years, he has lived all over Manhattan in Washington Heights, on the Upper West Side, the West Village and Chelsea, so he has a broad knowledge of the different neighborhoods. No matter where you want to live, Alek puts his customers and their needs first. He believes a good agent is a strong listener, never buckles under pressure, and is never pushy in any way. "Deals will come once trust and relationships are earned," he says. Outside of the work arena, Alek has varied interests that include film, NYC history and fun facts, fashion, entrepreneurship and investments.

Alek knows everything. But beyond being an urban expert and beyond New York real estate, he understands and is compassionate towards his clients and is completely invested in their well-being. Alek knows exactly how to get you what you want. And fast. It took no more than two days for me to find the perfect studio apartment. On the third day, I was already moved in. Alek was most instrumental in making this happen. He is incredibly resourceful and opportunistic. Yes, he has immediate access to a broad spectrum of real estate "stuff" -- the things that make his profession so valuable -- but what sets Alek apart from others is both his exceptional tenant-landlord matchmaking skills and his super-professional but super-cool New Yorker demeanor: fast, sharp, and wise. He is easy-going and fun to spend an afternoon with -- chatting, apartment hunting. He is transparent about how things work and I found his insights incredibly amusing. He is the most realistic "idealist" when it comes to real estate which, in my opinion, is the best way to provide such professional service. Not to mention Alek's continued support long after move-in. He is a good guy to know. Like I said, he knows everything.

Alek was incredibly helpful in my search for an apartment on the Upper West Side. He seemed very familiar with the area, and was genuine, transparent, and honest in our communications. Unlike other agents, he did not give up on the specific location that I wanted, and he provided me with a hopeful outlook despite my unique financial situation. Alek is amicable and easy to communicate with, and he provided me with a great deal of flexibility regarding my schedule. He was able to find me a perfect fit in just over a week. I would highly recommend using Alek as an agent to anyone else searching for an apartment in New York City.

Results Matter - Alek was able to find me the apartment I needed, in the neighborhood I wanted, under budget, in less than a week. He was knowledgable, helpful, and professional.

Alek was able to actually show me the apartments I had viewed online, unlike other agents who just wanted to meet me to fill out paperwork to discuss other apartments not listed. I appreciated that Alek let me make my own decisions, and I never felt pressured by him. He answered my questions honestly. Although I ended up finding a apartment on my own, I would highly recommend Alek for anyone new to the city.

Alek is great! I've lived in Manhattan for seven years and have had nearly that many apartments, and I can say with confidence that Alek is among the best. He is responsive, informative, courteous, knowledgeable, and most of all, honest. I told him what my budget was and he never pushed me to exceed it; ultimately, he ended up finding me an apartment that was much less than what I had anticipated spending. I was impressed by his knowledge of the building and the management company and also by his tireless efforts on my behalf (responding to calls and emails at night and on weekends, working with the management company to adjust my lease start, etc.). I highly recommend Alek!

He was great. I was in a very unique and complex situation and Alek helped me secure a great apartment. He worked hard, and actually listened to me which most agents do not. Also what I really liked about Alek, is that once I gave him my budget he didn't try to get me to spend more. Overall he is a great agent. He was also very quick to respond to me when I texted, called, or emailed him. Highly recommend using Alek.
