Michael was GREAT. I was a nervous first time renter working with a budget, difficult guarantor situation and with a roommate across the world, and he was fast, responsive, assured me he would get the job done, and delivered. Other brokers I talked to before deciding to work with Michael were pushy or said they didn't think my roommate and I would ever be approved, but Michael took every challenge in stride and we are so happy in our new place. He was able to find us several (I think six!) apartments UNDER our price maximum, in our preferred neighborhood (East Village - no easy feat) during a very competitive time (late summer), and from start to finish he was there to make sure I felt comfortable and informed about all of my options. We also had to start our search later than recommended and he somehow pulled off getting us into apartments, applied, approved, signed and sealed in a little over a week. He is professional, friendly, really knows his stuff and I would recommend him to anyone-- especially if you (like me and my roommate) have a tight budget and are not necessarily "prime" candidates to be approved for an apartment in this crazy city. He is the kind of agent that is well worth paying a broker's fee for the help, peace of mind, and advocacy on your behalf.

Michael understood what I was looking for and made helpful, appropriate suggestions to help me find a great apartment. The whole process was much easier than anticipated and Michael answered any questions I had quickly and was easy to work with. I found an apartment that I'm happy with very quickly with his help.

I am in the process of finding an apartment with Michael and I can say that he is very responsive and attentive to my particular needs. I hope we can close an apartment in a timely manner. I am sure if he continues this level of commitment that it will not be a problem.

Michael is very quick, friendly, knowledgable, but above all, honest. I was supposed to look at East Village and Williamsburg apartments with him but had to cancel very last minute because my roommate and I ended up finding another place on our own. He was very understanding and kind about it! Before we even looked at places though, he was very methodical about probing us for our needs and wants. He wanted us to know that East Village apartments are very small and if we were okay with that. Great guy!

Michael has been extremely helpful with my housing process since Day 1. He was patient enough to take me all over the city and stop by all the places I was interested in. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs an honest yet knowledgeable broker!

Michael was really, really responsive and attentive to what me and my roommate were looking for with our budget. We saw a great apartment with him but we ended up deciding on another place. After that, we sat down at his office and go through listings that may have fit our price and space.

I think the best part was that he wasn't pushy and didn't make us feel like he was doing us a favor. And I think that made our experience with him a really positive one. Definitely will be looking to him if we have to move in the future!

Michael was extremely helpful and professional, working within my budget to find a wide range of apartments. He went the extra mile in searching out the best and newest places to view, and was always flexible according to my preferences. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment, especially in the East Village.

I was from out of state and Michael was the first broker I contacted before I came to look. He was very helpful and kept in touch til the week I arrived. He is a busy guy so def call ahead and work over the details of what you want and when you'll be coming. In the end he found me a great apt and worked with me to get it. I highly rec Michael if you are looking for an apt.

Michael is an excellent agent and would definately recommend. I was looking for a apartment near the midtown area my budget being at $2500 max. He was patient working with my specifics of having a doorman in a luxe building which can be a challenge at that price with my requirements. I did work with another realtor prior at Nest Seekers who was extremely stuck up, convince me to move my max price to 3000 and busy looking at what i wore than finding me an apartment. Luckily Mike worked with me for several weeks and after looking at many apartments (sorry), I found my apartment in midtown with a doorman in a lux building. Thanks again :)

Michael was helpful, listened to what I wanted and even showed me apartments I wouldn't have considered that turned out to be perfect. I highly recommend him as he works with fee and no fee apartments. Is up front and returns your emails and phone calls promptly.
