Alex was great. He and his assistant Oana were very accommodating and friendly. He listened to what I was looking for and helped me find places within my budget. There was a small organizational error with keys, but Oana was very apologetic. Even though I didn't end up renting an apartment with Alex, I would highly recommend him!

Alex definitely has a talent for knowing exactly what I want (maybe even more so than myself!). I am very fortunately to have a smooth and fast experience working with Alex and his partner, Shiri: we found the apartment that I need exactly in a very short amount of time. I'd definitely recommend working with Alex.
Thanks again!

My wife and I moved to New York from Australia and Alex met with us the morning after we arrived. Within a few hours he had developed a short list of apartments based on criteria, we had inspected them and had already completed an apartment application.

He also gave us a lot of tips on living in New York, and devoted efforts to sourcing an apartment for us far beyond that of what I would have expected of a broker.

Alex is highly personable and honest, and legitimately cared about getting us into a place that we'd be happy with.

I'd definitely work with Alex again if given the opportunity, and can't recommend him highly enough to others on this site.

Thanks Alex!

I had the best experience with Alex and his team. He responded immediately to my initial inquiry and was very helpful. He was honest and upfront with me about my situation regarding what I could afford but he still managed to find me the perfect apartment. Of course there were a few bumps along the way but whenever a problem arose he was quick to solve it and get the job done. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend him to any family member or friend.

I recently worked with AC Lawrence to find an apartment in Midtown. I worked with Alexandru and Robert and they were both amazing and ended up finding us the perfect place. Coming from someone who has worked with PLENTY of brokers over the years and seen hundreds of apartments either out of our price range or in the wrong area, it was refreshing to work with two people who understand your needs and are willing to find what it is YOU want as opposed to whatever listings they have. It's such a stressful situation to find an apartment in NYC, it's wonderful to have two people helping you through the process and not pushing you into anything that you're not satisfied with, they really wanted to find the place that was perfect for me!

Thank you again Alex and Robert, you were wonderful and we're really excited to move in soon!

I just signed my lease for an apartment that he showed me. I met him and within 2 days he found me an apartment me and my room-mate loved. He was courteous, honest and very easy to approach. He and the wonderful lady that showed us the places (Her name is Emma) were very responsive and showed us some wonderful places within our budget. I cannot wait to move in and if anyone asks me who to go to, I will recommend him!

I highly recommend Alexandru Galiceanu. He helped me find a very great deal on an apartment while I was still in California. Everybody says it's a nightmare to find an apartment in NYC, but thanks to Alexandru, it was a very easy process for me and I couldn't be happier. Above all, he is a very good listener and quickly honed in on my situation and found a place that exceeded my expectations.

Alexandru responded quickly to my initial inquiry and to all my subsequent email questions. At his office we talked about what I was looking for a bit more in details an he came up with an initial list of apartments to visit.
Drew showed me the apartments and he was in contact all the time with Alex to adjust the list based on my feedback. I found my dream apartment the same day after only seeing 4 units!

After that Alex took care of the whole process of negotiating the rent, the move in date and the lease term.

I'd definitely work with him and his team again. Highly recommended!

Alexandru listened closely to everything I wanted and a couple of hours later I was walking in my dream apartment. I could not have asked for a better or more efficient experience. Be prepared to move, he will find what you are looking for!

I would HIGHLY recommend Alex and Manhattan Apartments. He was extremely helpful in finding me a fantastic apartment at an even better price. Alex listened to what I wanted and gave me exactly that. He was also very friendly and did everything in his power to get me the best apartment for my money. FIVE STARS!!!

Although my roommate and I had a low budget and a short time frame, Alex was very attentive, patient, and helpful with us. He was always available via phone and email and was willing to answer as many questions as we had. Elisha showed us the apartments that we picked out with Alex, and she was also great.

I would highly recommend Alex. I contacted him after seeing a posting on this website. When we sat with him at his office, he paid attention to our requirements, and set realistic expectations for us, and on Day 1, we found an apartment we really liked. Throughout the process, he was very responsive, both via emails and phone calls, and very accommodating given my hectic travel schedule. The whole process took only about a week, and he was even able to hand us the keys a week earlier than our lease start date. I would not hesitate to work with him again or recommend him to others. - Jess

Alex was awesome to work with. After an initial inquiry via the website we set up a time for me to come by his office. We talked about a many different options and Alex provided a number of apartments with various styles and price ranges for me to compare.

Once we decided on a place, Alex and his team worked quickly to allow it to all come together quickly with terms we were pleased with.

I especially recommend Alex and Manhattan Apartments if you are like us, you are coming to the New York area from out of state as they made the process an easy one.

Thanks Alex, Jonathan & Team

I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking to lease in Manhattan. His staff are knowledgable and courteous and go out of their way to ensure you find the ideal property, without wasting your time on properties that don't meet your requirements. Would absolutely work with Alex again.

I very highly recommend Alex. He was knowledgeable, personable, understanding, and was not pushy. I had very particular needs and he did a wonderful job at accommodating all of them. He is also very reliable and available and responds quickly to all calls and emails. Overall I had a great experience with Alex and Manhattan Apartments.

I was very happy with Alex and Manhattan Apartments as a whole. I only saw two apartments but that is because I signed a lease for the second one. I needed an apartment quickly, described my needs/wants, and on the same day Alex was able to show me a place quite close to perfect. The moderate amount of hand holding through the application and signing process was also appreciated.

By far the best experience I've had renting an apartment with a broker, and I've relocated in the city 5 times! He showed me 7 properties and we found a place I fell in love with on the first day! Alex negotiated the rent down and pushed the move in date to the end of the month on an immediate unit. Great experience! Highly recommended!
