As a New Jersey native, Michael Comandini spent a great deal of time planning his own move to New York City and today calls the Lower East Side home. With his engineering background, Michael offers a unique perspective to his clients looking to live below 23rd Street. “This part of the city is filled with history but the story of how these buildings created the foundation for building technology is also pretty legendary,” says Michael.

Today he offers clients knowledge about the changing face of the NYC market helping them to make sense of the real numbers when it comes to calling the city home. From statistics to the best gyms and places for coffee—Michael knows Manhattan. As a real estate professional, Michael works with renters, buyers, sellers, investors, management companies and landlords helping to connect his clients with the apartments they will enjoy calling home. His affiliation with Citi Habitats gives him access to the city’s largest database of properties so he can work quickly and efficiently. “They say time is money, and for those looking to call Manhattan home—they aren’t kidding. Sometimes just a few minutes can make the difference.”

As a co-founder of the Comandini-Chowdhury Team, Michael is able to help those moving to New York for school as well as those relocating for personal and professional reasons. His extensive network of service providers assist his clients to make the move seamless instead of challenging. This is one of the reasons why Michael has been able to attract International clients who need someone with experience to help them navigate the complexities of their deal which includes coordinating with schools, employers, families, multiple banks and more. “As the creative epicenter of the world, New York attracts the best talent in the world for many industries and I have been successful helping many Internationals to call NYC home.”

Michael’s rental clientele are also using him to purchase their first homes in the city and rely on his expertise when evaluating property. 

When not trekking the neighborhoods of Manhattan, Michael enjoys taking long rides on his motorcycle, snowboarding and snowmobiling upstate during the winter.

This year I moved into my first apartment in Manhattan, and I was incredibly fortunate to have had the professionalism and support of Michael Comandini throughout the laborious, and often frustrating process of apartment searching in New York City. Michael is thoroughly informed and experienced with the Manhattan market, and works tirelessly to ensure that he is constantly up-to-date. At our first meeting, he asked me to describe my ideal apartment and then assured me that he would do his best to fulfill my specifications. He kept this promise to the end. He has access to 95% of the listings in New York City and established relations with various management companies. As soon as he learned of a promising deal, he contacted me immediately and we scheduled a viewing at my earliest convenience.

Michael is entirely client-oriented; he never compromised my desires, and only showed me apartments that fit my criterion. He always kept me updated and encouraged me to contact him with questions, inquiries, or potential listings, and I’m grateful for his patience and expertise. It is clear that Michael has a natural talent and love for his work. His genuine enthusiasm to show his clients prospective apartments makes him an extremely successful and congenial broker. I had heard countless accounts of grueling experiences with New York City real estate, but I never doubted that Michael would find me my future home. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who seeks an efficient and stress-free apartment search.

I rented an apartment from this agent.

Michael is a very kind guy who showed me a variety of apartments, and even though I didn't end up renting through him, he seems to be good at his job and is absolutely excellent at being in touch and answering any and all questions I had. The only thing is that I'm a musician and we looked at an apartment that I would have happily put an application in for but it turned out musicians weren't allowed, and he forgot to check for that ahead of time. Other than that, very kind and easy to work with.
