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.
