Finding a suitable rental property in Manhattan proved to be a much greater challenge than I'd originally projected. The first broker I worked with spent plenty of time showing me apartments, but didn't seem to have a very complete taste or knowledge in New York housing. After spending two entire days touring stale, undesirable units throughout the city, I was referred to Andi by a colleague of mine.

I met Andi late on a Friday afternoon and within an hour or two she showed me at least five or six awesome rental properties in Midtown. Rather than stepping through a list of questionable apartments and hoping for the best, Andi brought me to what seemed like the hottest, most desirable units she knew of. Compared to other brokers in the city, Andi demonstrates a degree of knowledge and enthusiasm about house hunting that is absolutely necessary in a high-demand market like New York City. When it came time to complete paperwork and apply for the unit I wanted, Andi worked as a powerful liaison between the management company and myself. If you haven't worked with a New York real estate firm before, believe me when I say that you NEED an advocate to step you through the enigma that is the renter application process. Without Andi's efforts starting with my initial hunt all the way through the day I signed my lease, I would probably still be looking for an apartment. I highly recommend working with Andi!

Andi is a great agent and I am so happy to work with her. She helped me searching for so many apts in the area that I would like to stay. She is very patient and nice talking. I definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for apts in the city.
Thank you Andi!

Andi is one of the most hard-working people I've ever met. My apartment search was arduous and she stayed positive and was completely understanding of my particular needs. Most agents would probably have been irritated after showing me the 20th apartment, but not Andi - she's a trooper. Most importantly, she wasn't pushy - if I didn't like it right away, we moved on.

What I liked most about working with Andi is exactly that - I felt like we were working together.

If I ever need to move again, I'm definitely giving her a call. I'd recommend her to anyone.

Andi was phenomenal. I was on a tight timeline and budget and she helped me find exactly what I was looking for in short order. I was being very particular and it took 3 separate trips and probably 5-6hrs worth of viewings to find the right spot, and Andi was an absolute professional the entire time. When the management company wanted to push back my lease signing, she was able to make it work for me. Thanks Andi!

Honest and very responsive. Andi quickly found me a great apartment and then fought to get me the best deal. I will be recommending her to everyone I know that needs an apartment.

Thanks again!

AMAZING, STRESS-FREE experience working with Andi Penn. In 1 day, I met with six brokers. Five of them tried to shove apartments down my throat that didn’t meet my requirements or price range. The 6th (Andi) actually listened to me, took some time to look at all listings in the area, and then provided me with several options that met my criteria. Having spent very little time in New York, I had a lot of questions and concerns. Andi was extremely knowledgeable and really helped me to figure out what to expect and what was truly a good deal. I put in my application later that day and landed the perfect apartment.

If you want a low-stress experience where a broker actually values your time and only shows you the options that would appeal to you, reach out to Andi.

Andie is by far the most knowledgable broker I have come across in my years of living in New York. Her professionalism, personality, and encyclopedic memory of inventory led me to use Andie several times over the years as well as refer colleagues and close friends.

I highly recommend using Andie for all your real estate needs

First off I walk just like to say, if you are looking for amazing deals and great locations, call ANDIE asap and stop wasting your time.
The whole process was super smooth, and the close relationship she had with the management actually got to knock off $150 off the rent!!

Hard, diligent worker, and super responsive.
She never misses a beat, and gets back to you no matter the time or the hour of the day.

I would definitely recommend Andrea.

HORRIBLE! COMPLETE WASTE OF MY TIME! UNPROFESSIONAL!
Wasted two days of my time emailing and texting with her about scheduling appts for her to cancel/ switch times. I work during the week and this was a nuisance. I am generally patient but this was out of order. If you make an appointment you should keep it. It would be great if naked apartments let you attach photos because I would love to show the screenshots of the long text history that shows what a waste of time working with her was. After finally confirming that she had two apartments available (one vacant and one occupied) she agreed to meet me at 6:45pm on the corner of 95th Street and 2nd Avenue. Someone from her office texted me saying that occupied apt was not able to get into which means the vacant apartment was still available to view. I got there at 6:37pm and texted "I'm here" with no response text. I called her number and it went direct to voicemail. Did not get a text response until maybe 10 minutes later stating she couldn't talk now and wanted to know which apartment I was inquiring about as though this was the first time we communicated. Was then told she would not be to show the vacant apartment until an hour later because she was with another client. She expected me to wait for an hour for her which is quite rude. Seriously inconsiderate and unprofessional. This is exactly why I don't like working with brokers. Are we seriously expected to pay a 15% of the annual rent as a broker fee for this kind of service? Totally unacceptable and to brush it off as though it was nothing was beyond rude. I will definitely not rent a place from Andi as I do not appreciate my time being wasted.

Andi Penn Responded:
I was going to show you a true no fee apartment, so I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about with the 15% fee. You came across right off the bat with a huge attitude and automatically treating me as if I'm going to rip you off without even meeting me. My co-worker got the same vibe and didn't want to meet you either and cancelled with you a few hours before you had planned to meet. Maybe you should try being nice to people.

Hey NYC Renters!

I suggest using Andi!
She was amazing and an absolute doll to work with!
i LOVE our new apartment and it was pretty smooth and straight forward.. this is my third NYC apartment .. my previous experiences were a nightmare ..Shady agents that had lied to us and mislead through the whole process. Andi was upfront about everything and we signed a lease within a couple days of applying, drama free.

If you want a good NYC rental experience use Andi!
She's cool, professional and on top of her game.

Good job Andi and thank you!!!!

She was responsive, but insisted on communicating via text only...
The pictures and description of the property were COMPLETELY false, and she never informed me that the occupants would still be there when I went to view. When she agreed (via txt) to show the apt. and I asked for the address with cross streets, she texted back "Google it". I should have bailed then, I almost did, pushing back our meeting 1/2 hour which was probably the reason she would give for why she had the tenant show the smoke laden, cramped, 4th flr WALK-UP! (when did she plan on telling me that?).
Save yourself the grief.
