Tony Messiena: seals the deal
Tony found a great apartment for us, negotiated improvements with the landlord and made the deal happen on time. We couldn''t be happier!
When my husband and I were calling around to several different agents we were very disappointed with their follow up and attitude in helping us find a rental. Immediately when I spoke with Amir I knew he would be the one to find us our dream apartment. Not only was he responsive, he really listened to our needs and had our best interest at heart as well. He showed us only apartments that fit our criteria. He made the process so easy and fun. We are now in our dream apartment and could not be happier! Amir has not only become our agent of choice but also our friend!
I think you should advance to upper management and teach this course (what you have stated so coherently and patiently below) – to those who would enter the real estate industry by whichever means (broker, client, landlord, management co.). I want to thank you most sincerely for taking the time to patiently explain all of that to me. Because I really was NOT understanding the concept of: "sending you photos for listings that will likely rent by the time we meet is counterproductive." Seriously, thank you for explaining it to me (because for various reasons, the above-mentioned included(!), I am fed up with your industry and those who practice it. As for me, hopefully an apt. I saw today will be mine tomorrow; I am running out of that window of time. But I will be saving your email, because it was SO carefully constructed/thought out! With kind regards, stm
PS: Good luck in that industry. I expect you will go far, w/o having to be like the others. PPS: If your supervisors are not already aware of the conscientious job you are doing, put this piece of "fan mail" where it can be absorbed, acknowledged, appreciated.
Thank you Chris O''Brien
Having just moved to NYC from Europe, my partner and I were finding it very hard to find a place that we liked or a broker we could trust.\r Chris took the time to get to know us, showed us the area and what was available in different price ranges before finding us the perfect place - all without any pushy conversations ""better take it now, it will be gone tomorrow"" and ""have you any idea how quickly things move in New York, what''s your price range? You know you have to pay me 15% right?"".\r Anyone looking to not be pushed into a place you don''t want to be in, anyone that wants their broker to take the time to find out exactly what they are looking for and anyone that wants a broker that isn''t interested in helping you after showing you 4 places - Chris O''Brien of NYLS is your man!\r \r Thanks again Chris!\r \r Richard
