Soo was wonderful in helping Emma and me find our first apartment. Right off the bat, Soo was very prompt about responding to our emails, which made us feel taken care of and Rio was highly efficient in choosing apartments to show us which were both in our approximate price range and met the requirements of our other criteria.
Throughout the apartment hunt, Soo was incredibly patient and flexible. When we declined the offer for Central Park North, she continued to help us look for other apartments that better fit our needs. Thank you for the great experience. Emma and I are excited to move into our new home.

I just wanted to write what a wonderful job Soo did in finding me my next little home in NYC. Having lived here for 8 years and in 10 different apartments, I knew exactly what I was looking for coming into this. She did a great job adjusting to that, and keeping the hunt less "pitchy" in favor of being more direct through the process. Within about an hour of stepping into the door of your office, Soo showed me an apartment that she had picked out - the one I ended up signing on. Relative to some experiences I've had in the past, this was quite seamless and stress-free for me (well, besides the money part ;) ). I look forward to moving in over the next few days!

I just wanted to take a minute to tell you what a pleasure it was meeting and working with Soo. She really know the city well and helped us immensely with finding an apartment that we think will be perfect. I'm sure it wasn't easy coordinating and searching for apartments while my roommate, Brenna, and I are located in different states.? However, Antony and Soo were great with communication and sending us all the information we needed to agree on a location and apartment.
I would reccommend anyone looking for an apartment or home in New York to reach out to Soo, as I know I would again with no hesitation. I cannot thank them enough for all of their hard work and being so understanding with us throughout the process.

Soo Kim didn't even have the courtesy to show up for our arranged meeting. I spoke with her manager to review the listing I was interested in and it turned out to be fake. Don't waste your time with this broker.

My experience with Soo was great. She is a hard worker and I felt that she had my best interests at heart. Although I didn't rent an apartment from Soo, I felt she was genuinely happy for me when I told her I had found a place to call home.

When no broker responded all day because of the snow storm, I finally called soo at 4pm. She gave my roommate and i her full attention and waited for us to come from brooklyn and showed us apartments she had copies of keys to until 7pm in the snow. She was nice and caring and kept asking if we were cold and told us to let her know if we wanted to stop looking but we needed to move by the end of the weekend and it would not have been possible without Soo's dedicated work ethic. I would recommend anyone to call her. She is a genuine broker.

We had a very poor experience with Soo. When we arrived there was some confusion with the lady at the front desk, who didn't even know who Soo was. When Soo arrived she didn't speak to us at all, instead communicating through the receptionist, even though we were standing right there.

After we filled out the registration form she told us that the apartment that we wanted to see had just been rent out 1/2 hour before. We knew there was another one listed on Naked that had a similar profile (2.5 bed in Hell's Kitchen for $2250), but all she said was her computer was down and that 2 beds in that area cost a lot more, but she'd show us something else.

She showed us a small 1 bedroom, no living room. She took us to another apartment and couldn't get inside. That was it for the day, which we considered a waste of time. She was excited to show us a "huge" apartment in Chelsea that was a little above our budget and we set up a time to see it the next day after she sent a couple of promising photos.

She confirmed an hour ahead of time and we arrived 15 minutes early. The cafe she asked us to meet at was closed. I texted her to tell her such and that we would explore the neighborhood. She apologized about the cafe and said she was on her way, in a taxi.

15 minutes after our meeting time passed, I texted to let her know we were outside (in the snow) and asked if she was close. That's when she called to tell me that the previous agent had rented it out and asked if I'd like to be placed on a list to see it if it opened up. She did not offer to show me anything else.

I don't know if this is normal protocol, but I expect that she was not in fact in a taxi on her way to see me (it had been over 1/2 hour since she had texted such), and I don't know how long she would have waited to call to tell me about that apartment, which was in fact in Clinton - not Chelsea. She apologized, but didn't take any responsibility. She blamed the "weird" agent that she was trying to get a hold of. I know strange things can happen, but I would have thought it would be much better customer service to actually arrive at the meeting you confirmed and then try to sort it out from there. It appeared that perhaps that meeting she arranged was never confirmed with the other agent.

I have since seen on Naked Apartments other 2.5 beds in Hells Kitchen that she represents that were supposedly available on the day I initially met with her. One of two assumptions must be correct: that she is completely inadequate at her job or that she is deliberately misleading people.

The ironic thing is she told me how Coldwell Banker is #1 in customer service. Do you ever find people say that when the opposite is true? I recommend that you don't waste your time with Soo as I did.

After meeting with other agents who showed me apartments with old kitchens when I had requested a dishwasher, Soo asked all the right questions and showed me the best apartments out there. I looked in flatbush for a bigger apartment but I would tell anyone to work with her. She knows what she's doing and she wastes nobody's time doing it.

Contacted Soo after another deal fell through, I was on a time crunch to find a place asap, and very stressed out. Soo put me at ease as she was very knowledgeable of all the buildings downtown, she took me to several buildings that fit my needs, far more than previous brokers who only took me to very high priced units. Overall I was very satisfied with the service Soo provided, and I am highly recommending her to anybody!

She was nice and responded quickly. She showed me many apartments in one appointment and really helped find an apt in a short time.
