Faye Samim understands the importance of having a place one can be proud to call a home. She has lived in and around some of the most beautiful real estate in and out of the United States and, after starting her own family, found that the greatest moment for her was when they found their own home. That’s why, for her, real estate is more than just numbers on paper; it’s about people, no matter who it is, and family, no matter how big or small. Faye originally hails from Dubai, one of the most beautiful emirates within the UAE, where magnificent real estate is a given. After having moved to the US in 2006, she lived in New York City and loved being surrounded by the concrete beauty before moving to the suburbs. After earning her Bachelors degree from Excelsior College, she went on to earning two Certificates from Fashion Institute of Technology and New York University, respectively. Having worked in the financial world in Dubai for over 5 years and the fashion industry in the US for 3 years, Faye has accumulated various experiences in working with diverse clients, which promises excellent outcomes for her real estate clients.

She's quick and pleasant, but I've not yet looked at apartments with her. I expect she will be knowledgeable and pleasant.

Faye was very helpful and efficient in finding me an apartment that fit my budget. She and her whole team were very nice and truly cared about me as the renter, and worked hard until I found an apartment that I liked! I had a very pleasant experience working with her, overall.

Faye is an amazing agent. She took the time to understand my roommates and my situation and helped us find an apartment that fit our needs. I would recommend her and Tatyana to anyone who is new to the city and looking for affordable living arrangements.

Thanks Faye!

I cannot express the lack of professionalism/ convenience here. I was only interested in apartments below 14th street. she told me to come by her office, which is in Times Square. I was annoyed, but assumed she would map out a game plan of what apartments we would see when. Instead it was like she had never even scheduled me. The office can most likely be compared to that of a terrible used car dealership/ sweat shop. After finally arriving at her desk and filling out paperwork we were handed off to one of her minions which began to call to try and make appointments. We then traipsed around to see apartments from another agent who had no knowledge of the apartments we were viewing. Eventually, I rented from another NYC realtor, who was far more accommodating and professional.

Faye is an Amazing agent!

She is super fast and responsive and uses up to date technology to stay in touch with me as an international customer. I presented a tough case as an international student without a US guarantor but it only took Faye a couple of questions to understand my needs, she kept in touch with me and took me on my first day to see the apartment and I applied for it by the end of the day. She had found me the perfect apartment that I fell in love with and no other compares..!

Not only that but also Faye kept in touch to insure I settled well, helped me in how to get around and took me to places near by that I would like. Faye is still extending her services even after her work is done.

In a nutshell, Faye is a professional, responsive, nice, helpful, great agent that gets work done instantly and I totally recommend her.

Thanks Faye!

Faye went above and beyond to assist me in finding an apartment. She provided all of the necessary information and worked well with my restrictions. Great communication. I intend to use her in the future (if needed) and will be referring others.

I've spoken with dozens of agents in the NYC area and numerous other industry professionals, and I can say with absolute certainty you will not find an agent who knows the market better than Faye Samim. She is also an extremely helpful individual and just a great lady. Her results speak for themselves.

Faye was extremely nice and helpful. She provided a list of fabulous apartments complete with pictures and with prices we could afford. In the end, we rented through our university housing, but our experience was excellent, nonetheless.

Faye is one the best agent I came across while searching for apartments in NYC. She is prompt, responsive and knowledgeable in her industry. She contacted me right away and we set up to meet in her office. She was professional and courteous and tried very hard to meet my needs. She explained every aspect of finding and qualifying for apartments to me so I could be ready when that apartment which I am looking for is found. I highly recommend anyone to call or email her to find your next apartment.

The reply was prompt but the communication was very poor. I was under the impression that I was going to meet her in order to see the apartment I had inquired about at that very time. She requested I come to her office which is about a 20min walk for me. I asked if we could meet near the apartments since I live close to them and that would be more of a 5 min walk for me. She said that the apartments she wanted to show were near the office (further insinuating that I was going to go see an apartment).

When I arrived I filled out paper work. She then asked me what I wanted to see. I was confused; I wanted to see the apartments I inquired about on NakedApartments. We went through the mandatory financial requirements. Then she said she had to call and set up to see if I could go see the apartments.

I was under the impression that, that was what this meeting was about, especially since she said "her office was near to the apartments."

It would have been better if she said you must come in and fill out some paperwork and go over some necessary guidelines before we can start looking at the apartments.

Additionally, she called one of the apartments, asked the renter if I could come today. He said no but tomorrow. She asked what time tomorrow then hung up the phone.

She then informed me he could meet at 11am. I told her I could not, and what about 9 am. She said well he already said 11 am....

I told her that was fine but she didnt ask me if that time was okay with me and I was sitting right there.

I told her I would attempt to make that time.

She picked up the phone and then told me she was calling to schedule me to a different appointment right after the 11am. (again she did not ask me if this was okay)

I said no, I cannot do that. I have plans. I can only make the 11am.

Overall terrible communication.
-Misleading about the purpose of our meeting
-Did not ask when my availability was and started scheduling things for me without my consent

Faye made finding an apartment in New York City extremely easy and painless. From the start, she was extremely helpful and flexible with my busy schedule. You can expect her to be very responsive to your inquiries via email, text, or phone. If you want someone to find you a great apartment and deal, contact Faye. I'll be recommending her to any friends or family looking for apartments in NYC in the future.

SO responsive, and incredibly willing to work with you and around your schedule. I didn't end up using her, as I decided to narrow my search to Brooklyn, but she was easily the best about returning calls/texts/reaching out and identifying places for my needs. There's a reason that she has all these five-star ratings. I'm sorry that I never got to meet you in person, Faye.

I did not hire Ms. Samim as my broker, but she was quick to respond to any inquiries. She originally contacted me with various listings. I began the search early (beginning of April), and she promised to contact me beginning of May, which she did! Later she provided a follow-up call in mid-May with helpful advice about searching for various brokers and the apartment hunt. Ms. Samim is fast-paced yet determined, informative, and followed through with everything she promised. Thank you for the help!

I contacted Faye about an apartment in Astoria. In response she messaged me informing me that she had apartments in the UES. Not being interested in the UES listings, I chose to not respond to the email, but I received a call from Faye, trying to convince me to look at apartments on the UES in which I was clearly not interested. My requirements for an apartment were completely disregarded and it turned into a sales pitch instead. I wasn't very impressed.

Faye Samin is an enthusiastic and knowable agent. She works with the AC Lawrence agency. She referred me to Yeranuhi Barakyan. My experiences with Yeranuhi can only be rated as 5 ****. I met with her on Sunday, Feb 27th and signed a for a beautiful apartment in my price range on Thursday, Feb 28! She was prepared and took care of me and understood my needs. I heard such horror stories about apartment hunting in NYC. Yeranuhi Barakyan made the process easy, and stress free. I can’t say enough about her and AC Lawrence in general. I will refer Yeranuhi and AC Lawrence to all my family, friends and associates. Thank you Yeranuhi, you’re top shelf!!!

When I emailed Faye about a particular apartment I was interested in, I wasn't expecting to hear back for a while, since it was a Sunday evening. To my surprise, she responded almost immediately, asking me what I was looking for and what my price range was. Faye was respectful and professional in all of our interactions, and she was incredibly accommodating when I visited the AC Lawrence Realty office--offering me water and making sure I was comfortable. Although I did not rent an apartment from AC Lawrence, Faye's expertise and patience definitely made the stressful and hectic process of apartment hunting in NYC relatively worry-free. What I really appreciated was the fact that Faye really listened to me and respected my boundaries. I'd recommend her to someone looking for an apartment in New York City.
