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
This is my second year in NYC and the second time I''ve needed to find an apartment. Last year was a terrible experience with the brokers I contacted - they always charged really high fees or seemed to somehow not really have your best interests at heart. After that, I had a very negative view on brokers.....but Ande changed all of that!!
Ande is an exceptional, hard-working, honest agent. She goes out of her way to find you listings that she''ll know you''ll like and is super organized with setting up appointments and such - none of the aimless walking around, wasting a whole day. My roommates and I worked with her and she found us a really great place, at a good price, and was very honest in fees (she found us a "no fee" place , even when other brokers were still trying to charge us a fee on the same location!). Furthermore, it only took one afternoon to find a unit we were really happy with.
Even when we thought we wouldn''t get the apartment due to an administrative mixup, she personally went into the building''s leasing office to negotiate. She is great at following up, making sure you feel like you''re in the loop, and extremely efficient.
In an industry that isn''t known for being very forthright, Ande definitely stands as an example of what a broker should be. I''m very glad that I contacted her and put my trust in her to find us this apartment!

Ande is an exceptional agent and was a pleasure to work with her. She assisted with the competitive NY market and is a strong negotiator. Since I was not from the area I appreciated her expertise and how dialed in she was to all the different neighborhoods. Ande is organized, efficient and diligent- I would highly recommended her.

Ande is a goddess. She the NYC real estate matchmaker! The first listing Ande sent me (after just a 30 minute phone conversation/discussion about who I am & what I''m looking for) could not have been a more perfect fit. She found me my dream apartment in a matter of minutes. Ande is a beautiful person inside and out; she''s truly a joy to work with. She has a powerfully positive energy that is so clearly reflected in her professional undertakings. She made what is usually an awful, stressful search/move into an easy and exciting process.

Majlinda is amazing!! She helped me rent my first apartment in NYC this summer. I was brand-new to the city, never lived on my own before, and was absolutely terrified by the process of getting an apartment in NY. But Majlinda immediately made me feel right at ease, and by the end of the first day of apartment-hunting, we found the perfect new home for me! From the moment we started searching, Majlinda was incredibly communicative and responsive to my needs. I really appreciated her openness and honesty as a broker and how much she helped me through the lease-signing, which can be very intimidating for a first-time New York renter. Even after the signing, Majlinda stayed in touch with me to make sure everything was okay and that the move-in was going smoothly. I will definitely be calling Majlinda again if I ever decide to move out of my gorgeous new apartment!!
Cannot thank Michael enough for helping us find our dream condo within our budget.
Michael showed us places that were not on our list, broadening our horizons and helping us uncover what we really wanted.
In addition, Michael put us in contact with a great lawyer and mortgage broker. We''ve been happily living in our condo for over 3 years and cannot thank Michael enough.
