She was excellent and professional in every way possible. Often times she went over and beyond to accommodate for my needs and desires. She was extremely courteous, kind and friendly. Definitely the best broker I've dealt with if not the best! I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.

FIRST RATE SERVICE- WHAT A TROOPER!
Marie went out of her way to help me find the right place.
Her support and warmth through the whole process made her a pleasure to work with. And she was unwavering! When push came to shove she TOTALLY went to bat for me. Just the best! I highly recommend her outstanding services!

Marie-Helene and Hardeep were fantastic. The entire process was swift and smooth, but I was not made to rush at any stage and Marie-Helene was happy to answer all of my questions.

The apartment was listed as no-fee but Hardeep and Marie-Helene explained that the fee was uncertain until they had spoken to the landlord. This made me pretty nervous that the cost of moving in could change for the worse, but I was delighted when they later confirmed that after speaking with the landlord there would indeed be no fee to move in.

I cannot wait to move into the apartment when my lease begins. Thank you Marie-Helene!

Marie-Helene showed me only one apartment. It was a bad experience. She did not attempt to make any conversation nor did she have a friendly attitude. She did not listen to what is was that I was looking for and tried to show me something out of my price range. When I told her it was above my budget she became very nasty and told me she has nothing for me to look at. When giving me papers to sign (broker info) I was confused at first and she again gave another attitude about it..meanwhile I did not even see the place yet. I would not recommend her to anyone.

Marie-Helene is absolutely wonderful to work with. She showed me a wide variety of apartments in Astoria and Long Island City, demonstrating a deep knowledge of both neighborhoods. She was really patient in showing me around on evenings and week-ends and was always responded promptly to my inquiries. In the end I decided not to move there because it would have made my commute to New Jersey each day too long. That said I would recommend Marie-Helene to anybody looking in the area. You could scarcely do better.

Marie was just wonderful to work with. We gave her the tough task of finding an apartment for our son in one day! Not being native New Yorkers, we had no idea where to begin, but Marie patiently helped us navigate the unfamiliar real estate market (unfamiliar to us!) and our son found his perfect place in just one day! She went above and beyond to make this happen! I would highly recommend Marie and would definitely use her in the future.
