Mr. Pakula was firstly very responsive unlike the other 3 realtors that I had been recommended through friends. He was very easy to call and get in touch with. Secondly, he took me around in a chauffered car which made it very easy to view properties on my limited time frame since I am very busy in my professional career and only have certain weekends to view properties. He spent time with me on each property we looked at, and advised me against the ones that in his opinion were overpriced and had no resale value in the future. I felt very comfortable with him as a first-time home buyer and my mother had a high opinion of him given the fact that she is in the real estate business carried a lot of weight. He is an excellent agent and you can''t go wrong with him. There is no pressure on his part to sell a property to you and he is always looking out for his clients first and foremost. He is a rarity among agents in NY and I highly recommend him.

Alex Caballero is the BEST!
After several attempts w/ other brokers and solo outings, I was referred to Alex and NY Living Solutions by a friend of mine who was abs. thrilled w/ her new apt! Alex was professional, friendly, and frankly the best broker that I've ever had the pleasure of working with! He listened to all my concerns/ preferences, but also did an excellent job of helping me to expand my search, so that I could be in an apt/area that I was truly happy with! After ONE DAY of apt searching w/ Alex, I found my dream apt and I could not be happier! I honestly could not have done it without Alex's candid answers, savy neighborhood knowledge, and positive attitude! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Alex to anyone who is looking to effectively navigate the jungle that is the NYC rental/buying market!
Michael always provides more services than just representing buyers. I came from a foreign country and was not very familiar with the local market and a lot of issues regarding real estate. Michael not only told me about the real estate market but also the school district, selecting contractors, and how to deal with the management company and the super. Incredibly patient and resourceful! Moreover, Michael has a car service, which made the showing process very efficient! I saw several apartments at a time, and I think this service will benefit people who are very busy with their work. Michael is always willing to help me out when it comes to a variety of problems related to my new apartment. Not only Michael helped me rent out my new apartment in about two months but also he helped me deal with all kinds of unexpected problems! After buying my first apartment in Manhattan, Michael and I became very good friends. With Michael, buying the apartment not only was a great experience but also brought me a good relationship. Thanks Michael!
