Agent Testimonials

Devin was friendly, knowledgeable and quite helpful about providing useful recommendations about the apartments and the what options were best practice considering my financial status at the time. I''d gladly work with him again in the future.

- Morgan (Zillow) November 2017,   November 16, 2017
 
Devin was fantastic. First, we had a meeting to define my needs and priorities and based on that he efficiently came with some options for me. He put in a lot of work for getting all the paperwork and approvals lined up. It was a pleasure to find someone like him to help me find my home. I''ve referred him to all my diplomat colleagues who recently moved to NYC and so far we have 4 or 5 satisfied clients in my office. Absolutely the best in the city!

- Jessy (Yelp) November 2017,   November 16, 2017
 
I don't even know where to begin. There are not enough words to say how amazing Devin is. We started with Devin not really sure about our move, and how it was going to work because it was months away from our move-in date. The point is, he treated us with the same respect and worked just as hard for us as if we were moving that week, and it was a done deal. He met with us twice a month until we found the place of our dreams in the heart of Manhattan. Even though we hit some rough patches, Devin saw it through with us until the end and got us such a sweet deal with our landlord. I would say he's the BEST! He's responsible and honest. At the end he wasn't just our agent, he became our friend. I would HIGHLY recommend Devin:-)

Devin was a great agent to work with. He helped me find an apartment really quickly and he has helped other colleagues do the same. Devin is kind and professional and he quickly understood my needs when looking for an apartment. I highly recommend working with him if you want to find the right place for you in New York City.

- Sylvia (Yelp) November 2017,   November 10, 2017
 
Devin helped when I was transferred to NY last year. He was efficient, understanding and a very good listener, who demonstrated interest in my situation and questions. Additionally, he is very kind. He got me very good options and the place I am living know, which I love... could I ask for more? I have recommended Devin to everyone I know, who are searching for place in New York!

- Tonie (Yelp) Novemeber 2017,   November 10, 2017
 
Devin was a dream to work with. He was highly responsive to any and all questions my partner and I had. He was flexible when it came to scheduling tours. He took time to understand our needs. He was with us every step of the way from understanding our options in different apartments to securing a great price for us. I have worked with different agents throughout my time living in New York and I would say he is the best by a long shot. Whatever your needs, he will be the perfect person to help you find your new home.

- Sarah N. (Yelp) November 2017,   November 10, 2017
 
Devin is the greatest agent you will find in the city. Not only is he professional, kind and sincere, but he found me an apartment within no time! He truly listens to what you are looking for and after going around with several agents, he found me the perfect apartment! I cannot more highly recommend Devin. Best in the city!!

I am moving from Toronto to New York for work and after seeing Ian's great reviews enlisted his help in finding an apartment in Manhattan. I found him to be extremely effective, knowledgeable, honest, and understanding of his client's needs and concerns. To start, as a Canadian finding an apartment in Manhattan is not an easy process as lessors generally have different and more restrictive requirements for foreigners. Ian was extremely helpful in walking me through the process as a foreign citizen, making sure I had the proper documentation in-hand when I landed in New York. I was only in New York for a couple days, so Ian managed to line up about a dozen apartments in one day that we looked at together. The next day, a Saturday, there were a couple apartments I had interest in that I wanted to see for a second time, so Ian took time out of his weekend to arrange and attend last-minute showings. I ended up choosing one of these apartments, so we went back to his office, prepared the application package, and submitted it. My application was successful, and within a couple days I was able to sign the leases from Toronto. The process was over more quickly and easily than I could have hoped for or imagined. I cannot recommend Ian enough and urge anyone looking to buy or rent to contact him.

I just wanted to say that Arielle Kamin is one super great real estate agents. She really is one of the true professionals at what she does, and best of all she''s an extremely hard worker that certainly impressed me. As a salesperson myself, I always appreciate working with another another pro in their field.

- Sam J, Yelp,   October 27, 2017
 
My boyfriend and I worked with Emily Barry and it was by far the best experience we''ve ever had with a broker in Manhattan. She was extremely attentive and responsive from day one, and genuinely cared to help us find a place that we really loved. She guided us through the entire application process, was patient to answer my 946276 questions and made something that usually feels extremely stressful and overwhelming feel seamless. I cannot speak highly enough of her and will not only be recommending her to everyone I know, but will definitely be using her if we ever have another NY move (we love our new place so much that I don''t think that will be for a while, if ever)! Work with Emily and you will not be disappointed.

- Toni C.,   October 27, 2017
 
Tony’s extensive experience, professionalism and warm, calm New York sensibility was notable during our 1st conversation. Tony was instrumental in helping me find the perfect place for myself and my family quickly! Tony was super-accommodating and helped make our transition to our new place easy! THANK YOU TONY!!

- Maureen O'Connor,   October 20, 2017
 
Arielle Kamin helped us find an amazing apartment that ticked all of our boxes and more. She is extremely responsive and professional, and we felt like we could count on her to have our backs when finalizing the lease with the management company in our new building. We highly recommend her!

Scott Schiller made the experience of buying an apartment relatively painless. His thoughtful, responsive approach gave me confidence that his team was handling all of the details. I''d certainly recommend him to friends, and will happily work with him on future purchases.

- Kent D. (Yelp),   October 17, 2017
 
I reached out to Kate and got an immediate response and scheduled showing. Bonus: she actually showed me the apartment I inquired on (!!) along with a few others. She knows what she is doing! And seems to know the SoHo/NoHo area incredibly well.

- David R. ,   October 11, 2017
 
Arielle Kamin is truly the best broker I have ever worked with. Of all the real estate groups and brokers, Arielle at Anchor is the best of the best in every way. She understood immediately what I was looking for, worked around the clock and always sent me valuable options in line with my taste and budget, and was available for every showing, all while always being incredibly easy to work with and with a smile on her face. She wound up finding me the perfect apartment with all of my very specific preferences and then continued to help make sure my application was chosen for the apartment. Her support and professionalism didn't end there, and she made sure I had everything I needed after the search was over, from proof reading the lease to coordinating with my new super. I don't ever want to leave my new apartment, but I know that if/when I do, Arielle will be there to help me find the next one!

- Arynne W., Yelp,   October 09, 2017
 
I just finished an apartment search with Arielle Kamin. Arielle was incredibly knowledgeable about the NYC housing market. She grasped immediately the type of place we were looking for and only showed us apartments that were in our price range and relevant to our search. She was attentive, organized and professional throughout the course of the search and a true pleasure to work with. She eased the stress of the apartment hunt and found us our dream home.

John is as good a broker as you will ever find in New York. Two things about me: I never write reviews and I distrust brokers. So consider this the worthwhile opinion of a skeptic. :) I looked at probably 50 apartments on UES before hooking up with John. He showed me two places I loved within three days, far better than anything else I had seen. I was second in line on the first application and ended up getting the second place. I''ve been there for a month and love it! John was honest about every place we visited, all aspects - the good and the bad; I never felt pressured; and he had great apartments to show. For the place I ended up getting, John emailed on Friday that an apartment just came on the market that he knew I would like, but that it would probably go over the weekend. Normally my BS radar would be screaming but he just isn''t like that. We looked after work and submitted the application within an hour (it was THAT perfect). And sure enough, the management company confirmed on Monday, they had several other applications over the weekend. A trustworthy broker who is actually concerned about getting you a place you love - not with unloading stock and grabbing commissions... What a concept!! I''ve shopped for apartments four times in NY and each time was a nightmare. And I was once again down to the last minute after not finding anything I liked for a month. If you''ve been there, you know.... ugh! If you''re serious about finding a great place and you have the opportunity to work with John, based on my experience, it will eliminate the headaches and probably land you that dream apartment.

5 Star Review on Yelp "I have finished off a property search with Anchor's Real Estate Agent, Ian Sossen. Ian - aside from years of experience - is an agent that truly works for his clients/customers in their quest for better living conditions. He is very knowledgable about most areas in Manhattan and has a firm grasp about the "appetites" of many high-end management companies (what they are looking for so the applicants will promptly qualify for approval be it in rental or purchase.) As observed, on numerous occasions, he has an excellent long-standing professional relationships with a number of realty firms and several co-brokers; that is to say he is respected by his peers and my a number of his clients, like myself. I have already given several of his business cards to associates of mine whom are looking to purchase high-end market real estate. If you have been burned by using other realtors in Manhattan, as I have in the past, you should make one last effort and contact Ian Sossen at Anchor Associates.

With so many real estate agents in NY, it is difficult to choose one you can trust. I used online reviews to narrow down the options and Devin Graham was among those few with very positive reviews. Indeed, his reputation precedes him. He is very kind, calm, trustworthy, respectful and professional. He carefully listened to my needs and desires and selected options within my price range. And he was fast too: it all happened in 2 consecutive days. Finally, my impressions were further confirmed by compliments paid by leasing officers in the buildings we visited who indicated that Devin was among the few they could trust. I strongly recommend Devin who helped me find the perfect apartment in no time and for the right price. Thanks!!!

Nick was the first broker that we used in New York and he went above and beyond our expectations. He not only was very knowledgeable of the market but, he took the time to really understand what we were looking for in an apartment. He helped us to create a reasonable wish-list and provided candid advice. Throughout the process he proved to be very patient, organized, and responsive. I highly recommend working with Nick and plan to use him again in the future.

I moved from Toronto to New York and I was looking for an apartment to move into from Toronto. It was difficult to find an apartment with no credit history but Ian made it so easy. With Ian''s help, I was able to view multiple apartments remotely and he was considerate enough to help me find an apartment within my budget and in a great neighbourhood, close to my office. I have moved into my new apartment since and I absolutely love it here and it wouldn''t have been possible without Ian. Thank you so much!

- HARSHITA DADDALA,   September 21, 2017
 
Ian was absolutely amazing! He really listened to what we wanted in an apartment and made sure to only take us to see units that fit this criteria. He was always checking in on us to make sure everything was going smoothly, even right up to our move-in date. I would highly recommend Ian for anyone looking to make apartment hunting super easy!!!

- Elise,   September 13, 2017
 
I don''t think I can come close to fully expressing how easy Arielle made the entire process for me and my roommate. To start, she did a great job of showing us places that were actually in our price range and suited our preferences, unlike many brokers I''ve worked with that try to stretch you out of your price range on places that really aren''t what you are looking for. On top of that, when it came to seeing apartments she was very flexible and was always able to make showings work despite my (and my roommates) hectic schedules. And she showed us places that other brokers weren''t showing - sometimes it seemed like all brokers were just showing us the same places but that wasn''t at all the case with Arielle as somehow she knew about some really great spots not many other people knew about! Besides all that, probably the best part about working with Arielle was just generally how on top of her shit she was through the entire process. She was able to arrange showings at short notice. She was always on time. She did a great job of taking care of stuff that I wouldn''t even have considered, like when it came to signing our lease she brought extra copies for when we (inevitably) messed up on parts of the paperwork. She knew all parts of the rental process well and is still in contact with us as we prepare to move in to ensure things go smoothly. There are clearly a lot of moving parts when it comes to renting an apartment but Arielle made it so easy and pain-free. I would 100% recommend working with arielle and will 100% be reaching out to her when I start my next apartment search.

Audrey Blair was extremely helpful, personable and honest as I searched for an apartment in the Chelsea/West Village areas. It is nearly impossible to find an affordable apartment that isn''t on the top floor of a walkup with no windows or kitchen. I had started early, and she was great with followups and checkins, but not in an annoying or pushy way. She provided a variety of options and planned organized routes to each viewing. I eventually found a place on my own without a broker, but overall, I had a great experience working with and getting to know Audrey

- Maggie D - Yelp,   September 06, 2017
 
I was connected to John through a recommendation of a family friend, and in the future I would pass along the same favor. John helped me not once but twice (after a roommate fell through- nothing on his end) find a great apartment. He was also extremely easy to communicate with. He responded very quickly both through email or text whenever we had a question, and overall made what would have been a nightmare of a lease signing process very bearable. And unlike your typical broker, John was extremely welcoming and kind. He always had a great attitude and we could tell he cared about finding us the right spot. Moving to the city would have been way more stressful than I can imagine without his help.

- Kyle K- Yelp ,   September 06, 2017
 
John is hands down the best broker in New York City you can find. He is personable, kind, hardworking, and dedicated to his job. John worked closely with me to help me find the right apartment for me. He provided valuable insight and helped me understand what it was I was really looking for. John also provided a much needed emotional support, reassuring me that at the end of the apartment hunt, I would find a place that I truly loved--and he was 100% right. At one point, my application for an apartment was declined. Upon his own volition, John personally went back to the building manager''s office and asked them to take a second look at my application. I am now living in that building. If it were not for John''s persistence, I would not be as happy as I am now in my new home. I highly recommend using John as your broker. He is a good man and does not see you as just another opportunity for him to make a profit. You will not be disappointed!

Ben and colleague Nick were exceptional from the beginning of our association. We used them to sublet our apartment for 2016 and that flawless process made our decision to have them sell the apartment a "no brainer". In both instances, they held open houses consistently, always once a week and many times twice a week, as well as followed up with those who viewed the apartment. They also did much more than any other realtors in CT and NYC ever did for us - from setting up stagers, cleaning service when needed, and contractor to paint and ready the apartment for the market. When Ben showed up on a Sunday afternoon for an open house, a pipe had burst in the bedroom heater. He quickly contacted me and the super, held the open house, and stayed until early in the evening until the plumber had come and gone. Then he arranged to get the contractor back to deal with the water damage! Cannot recommend AnchorKnight more highly.

Jhonatan Ocampo was very helpful, friendly and patient during my apt search. During my search he was attentive, paid attention to details I wanted to have in my apt and always had new apts to show me. The apts he showed me met my standards. Overall great customer experience

Mick DiStasio was referred to me by a good friend and it was such a pleasure to work with him. My roommate and I ended up finding our dream apartment in our desired price range AND location on the very first night! We were in a bit of a time crunch because the move was unexpected, so we are super thankful to Mick for making this a quick and seamless process. We have heard such horror stories about brokers, but this was completely the opposite. Mick made himself readily available, cabbed us around to showings, helped us throughout our lease signing, and gave us some great contacts for moving companies and other services. He is a super nice guy and very conversational. Definitely recommending Mick to all of my other friends who are moving to new apartments!!

- Heidi G. Yelp.com 8/18/17,   August 18, 2017
 
Nick started our process of trying to find me a no fee apartment by walking me through the basics of how the market works. It was a refreshing change from how complicated and confusing finding an apartment in Manhattan can feel. He followed up when he said he would and didn''t leave me hanging. He made me feel like my goals for what I wanted in a new place were important and doable. You can''t go wrong with Nick - personable and he will work hard for you!

- Dina Z. Yelp.com 8/11/17,   August 18, 2017
 
This review is for Mick - Mick was great to work with and made the otherwise dreaded task of moving in NYC pleasant and easy. I''d highly recommend working with him as he''s professional, quick, and genuinely interested in making his clients happy.

The real estate market in NYC can be horrific and having an excellent broker makes the experience completely different. I was apartment-hunting during a particularly stressful time and Paloma Cacho-Sousa went out of her way to make the process smooth and pain free. She is extremely proactive and efficient, quickly learns your rhythm and adjusts to it, and pays attention to every detail. She was incredibly patient during my moments of hesitation and became an excellent sounding board. On top of it she is lovely and a pleasure to work with. I recommend her highly

John Dugan and Elliot Garcia were the amazing duo! First, I must say that these two guys have so much integrity. John must have walked with me to see 6-7 apts. in the East Village (an area my partner and I were considering) on a very hot day!!! We were both sweating up a storm and not one time did John ever complain. He was courteous, friendly and professional. Following, my partner and I met Elliot who works with John because we wanted to check out FIDI. Elliot met my partner on day one, came all the way downtown on day two just for me because I couldn''t be there the day before and then a third time for the closure on an apt. we decided on an apt. in FIDI. Elliot started to feel like an extension of us. He too was friendly, professional and courteous but even began to feel like a familiar friend. This was truly a wonderful experience because there are a lot of agents/brokers out there with trickery but these two gentlemen were top notch!

We just rented a Manhattan apartment with Belinda''s help. We came from out of town, and she spent several full days with us over two visits to the city. She was informed, prepared, timely, patient, pleasant and professional in getting to know our needs and preferences. We cannot imagine how much more difficult the process would have been without her! She turned a stressful situation into a pleasant process, and we are delighted with the outcome.

Ben and his team are the best in the business. They make buying/selling/renting a home fun and easy. From start (buying our apartment) to finish (selling our apartment five years later) we found Ben''s team to be thorough, attentive to detail, and always available to answer or questions/talk things through. We highly recommend using them for your home purchase or sale!

Paloma did a great job of helping me to find an apartment- she was really helpful and patient, and helped me navigate my move to NYC. Really good communication from when I started looking and even after I got the keys. She made my life about a thousand time easier :) I wouldn''t hesitate to recommend her

Arielle Kaman was our broker. She was fantastic throughout our entire apartment hunt, and she went so above and beyond to help us find the right place! She was helpful and extremely communicative through the whole process and my roommates and I really felt supported by her. It was a great experience!

- Peyton B.- Yelp,   August 01, 2017
 
John is wonderful! We are so lucky to have worked with him; he is trustworthy and fantastic at his job. John provided us with excellent recommendations throughout the process of looking for an apartment. He showed us a wide range of differing apartments in different areas, yet he really adapted and personalized our search based off of our reactions and the criteria we specified. Not only was he a pleasure to work with during the search, but he has helped us with our move after we found a place by providing referrals which really helped with the cost. His NYC expertise has also become particularly helpful in making restaurant decisions, he knows all the best places! Thanks for all your help John!

Arielle was so helpful and quick in finding our apartment after a disaster we encountered with a broker from another company. I already recommended Arielle and Anchor Associates to my other friends looking for an apartment in the city! She didn''t try to push anything she didn''t believe was right for us or misinform about the quality of an apartment to bait us. The people we met with at Anchor Associates were very patient with our questions and concerns as first time renters and college students. Also, not only are they super helpful professionals, but they are really cool people too! Definitely recommend.

- Bri E.- Yelp ,   July 31, 2017
 
When looking for an apartment, I reached out to Arielle and could not be more impressed. She made the stressful experience fun and made us feel as though we were looking for an apartment with a good friend rather than a broker. I would 100% recommend Arielle and Anchor Associates to anyone looking for an apartment! They really make the experience as painless as possible.

Working with Mick to purchase my first apartment in NYC was a great experience. He was quickly able to understand exactly what I was looking for and effectively filtered through hundreds of listings to show me properties that fit my needs. Mick is a highly effective communicator and quickly responded to all my question/emails/calls. He was also highly knowledgeable, preparing through comp lists before bidding on units which helped us to stay rational in a market that was highly competitive. Due to the competitive nature of the market/locations we were bidding in, we lost out on a number of early units to all cash offers. However, Mick and his team were able to come up with creative solutions to make our following bids more competitive and I ultimately ended up with a great apartment in a fantastic location. I will be using Mick for my future real estate needs.

It was an absolute pleasure working with John Dugan. My husband and I were relocating from Cleveland and as a native New Yorker, John was instrumental in helping us navigate the Manhattan rental market. John was informative, patient, and an overall professional. I would highly recommend John Dugan for anyone looking to relocate to the city, or for anyone who is looking for a better broker experience. John is the BEST!

- Alexis - Yelp ,   July 18, 2017
 
I had the pleasure of working with John Dugan in trying to find an apartment for myself and my friend. John worked tirelessly to find places under, around, and slightly above our budget in order to give us the total picture when we were looking for a place. He was direct and honest at all times, and he made the experience not only tolerable, but fun as well. There really probably isn''t a better broker in the city--do yourself a favor and work with John! Thanks for everything John!

I can''t believe I gave a NYC realtor 5 stars but John Dugan really deserves it. He''s very knowledgeable about the rental market, he''s direct and does not show crappy apartments. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Don''t bother looking any further for a realtor - just call John Dugan!

We approached Devin on the basis of his many stellar reviews and we were not disappointed! He was prompt to respond and happily spent a full day inspecting apartments with us with absolutely no obligation or expectation that we would work only with him. He was completely relaxed, friendly and not pushy in any way. He listened carefully to our requirements and preferences and worked closely to accommodate them. We secured an apartment with Devin within a week and have not looked back since. We heartily recommend him to anyone considering the use of a broker even for no fee apartments. We will absolutely contact Devin in the future for our next move.

I worked with Paloma on finding a new apartment and she was incredibly helpful, friendly, and responsive and helped me find an apartment that was exactly what I wanted. She was not pushy at all and made the whole process very enjoyable. She also gave the experience a personal touch by checking in after I moved in and leaving a welcome note/gift on moving day.

Myself and 2 roommates were searching for a 3 bedroom apartment as we were moving into NYC after college. We worked with Emily Barry. She was very efficient, had access to great listings, and made herself readily available. When we showed interest in a listing she patiently showed each roommate at different times and was able to get tenants to allow us to see the apartment at times that worked for us. She understands what 22-30 year-olds really want in an apartment and is able to cut through the noise created by other brokers, listings sites, etc. If you want to find an apartment that fits your criteria in your budget and want someone who will be honest and only show you what you actually want to see, choose Emily Barry.

She understands what 22-30 year-olds really want in an apartment and is able to cut through the noise created by other brokers, listings sites, etc. If you want to find an apartment that fits your criteria in your budget and want someone who will be honest and only show you what you actually want to see, choose Emily Barry.

"If you''re looking to buy an apartment in Upper Manhattan, then Adam Feinberg is the real estateagent you should use. He has a deep knowledge of the market, the neighborhoods, and the history of many of the actual buildings. We worked with him for several months and saw literally dozens of apartments. His infinite patience and positive attitude made thesearch an actual pleasure instead of the nightmare we''d heard it could be. We''ll be moving to our new Washington Heights apartment soon, and recommend Adam without reservation."

Henry Falcon was Amazing!!!! He Found me the Perfect place in the exact area that i was looking to spend the next year of my life. Henry is a true pleasure to work with and be around. He is smart, has a sparkling personality, knows what his clients want/need and isn''t pushy -- all great qualities for someone working the NYC housing market. I''d recommend Henry to my friends and will be calling him the next time I need an apartment. Finding a place in NYC is beyond stressful and he is so kind, so diligent, listens to the client''s needs and wants, and is honest about all of his listings. I could not say better things about our overall experience as he held my hands from start to finish. He should teach all the other brokers out there in customer service - he is top notch! Thank you Henry for all your help.

In the haystack that is New York real estate, it is a breath of fresh air to meet someone who is attentive, enthusiastic, thorough and optimistic about the industry. One such person is Elliott Garcia, he truly is a lucky find and was willing to help me find an apartment in NY City. I truly appreciated his humour, positivity, engagement and professionalism and in the end, he earned the nickname "lucky penny" ... heads or tails you can't go wrong with Elliott's help in your pocket!

5.0 star rating 6/14/2017 My roommate and I were looking to upgrade our apartment and Ian helped us to find the perfect place! We couldn't have had a better experience! After messaging a few agents regarding listings, Ian was the first to respond. He was very thorough in asking our preferences and also detailed in explaining the documents we would need for the application process. That way, if we found something we loved, we could apply immediately. Every apartment Ian showed us was in line with what we were looking for. He was patient and not at all pushy, which is something that is often hard to find in a broker. Overall he made the stressful process of looking for a new apartment an easy one. I would absolutely recommend Ian and he will be my first call should I ever need to move again!

My review is related to my experience with Lydia, as referred to me by a friend You can read further details below but at the end of the day my friend and couldn''t be more pleased with the service provided by Lydia because she brought a level of insight, connections, and detail that we would never have been able to find on our own. As I''m in the midst of my move still I''m going to bullet out the highlights: - Lydia responded immediately after I reached out on a weekday night and got on a call with me - Lydia set up a block of time for me to come into the city from Long Island and look at NINE different buildings and when we went over the three hour time block set up (because I had seen a few places online I was interested in) she didn''t bat an eye and made the calls and trucked on for an additional two hours - Lydia was knowledgeable in every facet imaginable and acted as the buffer I wanted between me and the leasing personnel at the managed buildings. I swear she knew more about the buildings than half the leasing personnel. - Lydia did not pressure me into taking an apartment that I wasn''t absolutely happy with and could see myself living in. - Lydia was able to get me into apartments that weren''t yet officially on the market due to her connections (and actually it was one of those that I ended up renting) - Lydia was easily accessible after that day to help ensure that the leasing process went smoothly - Overall Lydia put me at ease throughout a process that I knew little about and seemed daunting and it never felt like I was dealing with some sort of car dealer. She expressed genuine interest in me and finding me the right place. I couldn''t have been happier and will recommend her to other friends that move to to the city or within the city. Thanks Lydia!

John Dugan is far beyond "as good as it gets" for a person looking for a miracle in New York City. I was looking for a rent-stabilized one bedroom in a decent safe building and happened across an ad for something John was showing in an elegant part of the city I long had yearned to live in. I read his fabulous reviews and went to see the apt. first thing but I was second on the list for the showing and the person before me instantly took the apt. I told John I just had tears in my eyes at the disappointment from just looking at the clean lovely lobby of the building. Unbelievably, almost 3 weeks later and after I had seen many awful dumps, I got a call from John out of the blue. He remembered me (phenomenally) and had saved my number, saying that something had come up in the twin building next door -- a one bedroom and rent-stabilized!!!! He told me he hadn''t even put the ad on the internet yet but remembered how I loved the building and asked would I want to see it right away and could I make it in an hour or so. Miracle of miracles -- although a walk-up -- the apt. was absolutely charming -- packed with old New York charm which we both loved!!! I took it immediately! John''s depth of experience both as a Marine and a Chef de Cuisine and as a native New Yorker who lived in all sorts of apartments as a child, and his instinctive intuition about what people really need and like, and also as a NYC family man, make him delightful to be with and talk to and trust. He is a straight shooter and dedicated worker....He put up with all my questions and a few freak out moments when I got the lease to sign and did not understand certain things as I was new to rent stabilized leases. He brought in experts from the firm in this area who explained in detail everything before I signed on the dotted line. They were willing to spend a lot of time with me and were very intelligent, helpful and honest. People who say he''s the best are not exaggerating! Thanks so so much John and thanks also to the whole staff there at Anchor who helped me. I owe you a big present for this John!!!! .

This review is for Scott Schiller and Connie Dellas. They have been tremendous over several years, both with helping to rent out my apartment as well as selling it this last year. My apartment is a co-op with loads of burdensome requirements, but Scott and Connie have always been tenacious and thorough, and a pleasure to work with. This last year Scott was able to get me a very nice offer on my apartment by staging it well, and setting up an open house on an optimal weekend. Then he worked with his Anchor colleagues to make sure all the co-op processes went through smoothly. Very highly recommended!

I worked with Jamie Fomberstein at Anchor. Jamie is simply the best. Moving to NY post-graduation, my two friends and I were looking for an apartment in downtown Manhattan with very, very specific constraints. Jamie handled our requests seamlessly. We worked with several realtors before her, and we hardly saw anything that was in our ballpark, from both a price and quality perspective. Jamie had it all figured out from the start, and is the sweetest person to boot. She looks out for you all the way and is as trustworthy as they come. It was a pleasure to work with her from start to finish, and now we''re settled into the perfect space. She even burned the midnight oil for us to make sure we could close. A full five stars and a wholehearted recommendation for Jamie and Anchor.

Kristy was absolutely awesome to work with, she was so nice, helpful and made the apartment search process so easy and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone that has is looking for a new place and has an idea of what they are looking for. Kristy was so nice and did not waste any of my time by showing me places that were out of my price range, below my required quality standards, in the wrong location or missing any of my specific check list items. Kristy was able to help me find exactly what I was looking for and showed me multiple amazing options that met all of my requirements. Her quick and easy process to prepare a couple of quick forms before viewing the apartments was genius, it made the process move so quickly and was eventually the deciding factor that allowed me to get a great discount and close quickly.

This review is for Mick DiStasio. I've now worked with Mick on two separate occasions - once when I was moving from London back to NYC and another time when he came to my rescue by helping me break a lease as I was taking on a new job in a different city. I can't recommend Mick enough. He is smart, knowledgeable, thoughtful about his client's needs, does great research within the given parameters, does a great job communicating with his clients and really goes above and beyond the call of duty. Mick's sunny personality, patience and creative approach to problem solving make him a true pleasure to be around. #SuperAgent

Bryant Montalvo is the anchor of Anchor :-) Finding a place in NYC is beyond stressful and he is so kind, so diligent, listens to the client's needs and wants, and is honest about all of his listings. I could not say better things about our overall experience as he held our hands from start to finish. And we were very picky as we were particular about finding a place for our family including our 16mo old but he was so patient and found us the perfect place. I would highly recommend him. He should teach all the other brokers out there in customer service - he is top notch! Thank you Bryant for all your help

This review is for Scott Schiller. I had the pleasure of working with him to find my first apartment in NYC while I was out of state. I appreciated his direct and clear instructions on how the transaction would take place. Moreover, he listened to my requirements and did not show me a plethora of units. I don''t think I would have been able to find a unit while out of state if it wasn''t for him. While I lived in the unit, he was always quite responsive and helped make it a smooth experience. Thanks Scott!

Andrew Dispensa was one of the most helpful and genuine brokers I''ve worked with in NYC. He doesn''t pressure you like many brokers will and he is incredibly easy to work with. He also went the extra mile in getting companies to lower the rent on apartments by $100 for me. I''d recommend Andrew to anyone who needs a broker. Awesome background career too as an actor in addition to being a broker.

5.0 star rating 5/16/2017 Honestly, Ian Sossen with Anchor Associates made the apartment search as easy as pie for my roommate and I. We''ve been living in the same apartment for 6 years, and decided to meet with Ian to see what he had to offer us. Ian was very responsive and spent over 5 hours with us showing several great apartments that were within our budget. In addition, he negotiated on our behalf when possible - he went above and beyond, in my opinion. I already recommended Ian to a family friend of mine who is moving to NYC from FL and would recommend him to anyone in search of an NYC apartment! He really knows his stuff!

The world should be filled with more people like Tony Segno! I called Tony when we found out we had to be out of our apartment relatively quickly and saw one of his listings that we were almost 100% certain we would rent. He heard my sincerity and took the listing down until we could meet the following day, which was his 29th wedding anniversary. That did not stop him from expediency. The next day we rented the apartment:) He is extremely knowledgeable about the building and the area, warm, friendly and personable. He worked with us to find a lease start date that was a win-win. There are still good, kind, genuine people in the world like Tony!

I can''t believe I gave a NYC realtor 5 stars but John Dugan really deserves it. He''s very knowledgeable about the rental market, he''s direct and does not show crappy apartments. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Don''t bother looking any further for a realtor - just call John Dugan!

- Margot B.- Yelp ,   May 18, 2017
 
Bryant reached out to my roommate and I during our apartment search to help us find our perfect place. He began by showing us all the properties near and around our budget and that process took the entire day. He really took the time to work with us until we eventually found our place that same day. He was honest and really looked out for us and I would recommend him 100 times! Thank you!!

This review is for John Dugan. John was referred to me through family friends and I''m delighted with their referral as he was a pleasure to work with. Being new to the city I''m sure a lot of brokers would have tried to take advantage of my inexperience in the market. John, however was very professional and most importantly honest from the beginning - he''s left me with a solid understanding of the real estate market in NYC and most importantly, exactly what I was looking for in an apartment in the West Village. I couldn''t recommend anyone more than John.

This review is for Jesse. He walked all around Murray Hill and Midtown East with me and my mom two weekends ago and was awesome.

Thanks so much for every Jesse!

John Dugan worked with my son to procure an apartment in NYC. He was extremely accommodating - answering my questions and ensuring that all deadlines were met. He was upfront and extremely knowledgeable about the financial workings of the process. Above all, John was sincere about helping my son, and more importantly, about building relationships for the long-term. Thanks John for an seamless and professional experience.

- Jaishree K.,   May 10, 2017
 
I reached out to John Dugan, from Anchor Associates, when I found out my son accepted a job in NYC. He was helpful from the first email. He answered all of my questions, and kept us informed about the process. He showed the boys apartments, and although they chose one listed by another company, John sent us all emails telling us he is still there to help with anything they need, now or in the future! He gave tips for scheduling cable and electric hook ups, etc! Truly a class act. If my son needs to move in the future, we will be calling John Dugan.

- Anne L. - Yelp ,   May 10, 2017
 
I had the pleasure of working with John Dugan in trying to find an apartment for myself and my friend. John worked tirelessly to find places under, around, and slightly above our budget in order to give us the total picture when we were looking for a place. He was direct and honest at all times, and he made the experience not only tolerable, but fun as well. There really probably isn''t a better broker in the city--do yourself a favor and work with John! Thanks for everything John!

5.0 star rating 5/6/2017 I worked with Ian J Sossen at Anchor and I'm pleased with the experience. I got in contact with Ian 1-2 days before I came to NY for viewings and he quickly showed me a few no-fee places on the upper east side within my budget. I liked one of the places he showed me but couldn't make a decision. After a few days, I was in NY again visiting friends and decided to take another look at the unit. I texted him in the afternoon around 4:30 for a 7pm showing. He immediately replied and took me to the building again but showed a better unit with the same layout on a higher floor, which I chose as my new home. I'm very happy with Ian. To summarize, he's no-BS, polite, accommodating and respectful of my time. Compared with other brokers I met, he does not push you into something you are not sure about. I appreciate his approach of showing you options but leaving you space and time to make your own decision.

Ben was a great realtor. He took my wife and I around to several listings over the course of a few weekends. Once he had a sense of the type of place we were looking for, he took no time in finding us our apartment. He also was an expert in navigating the coop board interview and approval process. He and his team made first-time home ownership as seamless as could be expected and I would recommend him to anyone.

This review is for Scott Schiller. A no nonsense broker who gets straight to the point. I''ve lived in NYC my entire life and have always been hesitant to deal with any brokers. Scott is the exception and highly recommended.

- Leon t. (yelp),   May 02, 2017
 
My roommate and I recently began our apartment search and had pretty specific needs as to what we had to find and became very discouraged when trying to search on our own. As soon as we found John Dugan our search became much more productive and whole lot easier. He truly took the time to listen to our needs and worked hard to show us several different options to see what worked for us and in the end, placed us in a great apartment. He really made what is usually a stressful process into one that was very enjoyable. I would highly recommend him as a broker to anyone in search of a new place to live. Thanks so much John!

- Marissa Y. (yelp),   May 01, 2017
 
John C. Dugan. Experienced professional, a straight shooter, trustworthy (a word I don''t normally use when describing someone in sales). My daughter and her roommate, who will be college juniors in the fall, were having a really difficult time trying to find a nice two bedroom apartment in a desirable neighborhood in NYC, and within close proximity to their school. They were in contact with a few different brokers, searched day and night on all the apartment rental websites looking for no fee or low fee apartments that fit their budget, and they attended several Open Houses. After exhausting all efforts and coming up disappointingly short each time, they finally found John. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with, and he immediately put the girls'' minds at ease. John took the girls under his wing, treating them like he would treat his own sisters. He even treated them to lunch! John found the girls a beautiful studio apartment, in a luxury building, in the financial district. The apartment featured a home office that could serve as a bedroom for one of the girls, and John pointed out that if they put up a wall and divided the living room, they could have the second bedroom they were hoping for. The perfect solution! JOHN was the perfect solution. I highly recommend you reach out to John Dugan for all your apartment rental needs, and recommend him to family and friends too! You won''t be sorry. He really is a breath of fresh air. Thank you, John!

Brian was extremely helpful and accommodating. When we met with him to look at two apartments, he offered to show us more apartment that we didn''t even know about, based off of what he thought we liked. We found our current apartment through him and we are so happy with it. I highly recommend working with Brian.

- Jenna,   April 28, 2017
 
Brian is the greatest. He''s really accommodating in terms of your work schedule and trying to find you exactly what you''re looking for below budget. I really appreciated that he had a lot of listings to look at when we scheduled to meet instead of just the one I inquired so that we didn''t waste any time. He also was very reassuring when I had hesitations regarding management companies and noise levels in certain apartments. Rather than pushing me into a place I didn''t want, Brian was really honest in telling me how much he thought I would like the place and what the best option was. I highly recommend him!

- Laura,   April 28, 2017
 
Brian was so patient and attentive helping me find the apartment that I wanted. He was respectful and only showed me quality apartments in my budget and didn''t try and up sell me with places out of my price range and broker fees. I highly recommend working with Brian, he was super helpful in the entire process and signing a lease has never been so easy!

John Dugan is an amazing broker. We had a unique set of requests, and John spent an enormous amount of time looking for our dream apartment. He is personable, friendly, funny, and most importantly, very professional and knowledgeable. He went above and beyond to help us, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment. He''s a true New Yorker and will find you exactly what you are looking for! Thank you John!

I was very fearful of the whole process of finding an apartment in NYC until I found John Dugan. John listened to all my needs as a college student and was very honest about what I could get. He reassured me not get get discouraged and led me to my new apartment which I love so much! He''s so genuine and, unlike other brokers I''d met with, he really cared about getting me into a place I''d really love. I''ve already recommended him to everyone I know and continue to do so. If you''re looking for a broker please contact John, he''s the best!

Nick is a Secret Weapon!! I totally lucked out when I first contacted Anchor and Ben Willig, and Nick was part of the team who showed me a huge variety of both sales and rentals. He is a straight shooter, completely honest and reliable, as well as really personable and easy to work with. He is committed and obviously cares a lot about doing a good job (not "mailing it in" like a lot of other agents!). In short, their operation is high caliber, and I recommend Nick and Ben and their great support team, without reservation.

- Rebecca F. Zillow.com 4/28/16,   April 18, 2017
 
Nick is EXCEPTIONAL! I was relocating from Salt Lake City to NYC and Nick made that transition seamless. He went above and beyond with sending me options that fit what I was looking for. Even when I had to broaden my horizon in my search, he was still available to help with any needs or concerns I had. I will definitely be using him on my next move! He''s the best of the best.

Mick DiStasio was a great help in finding an apartment in NYC just within 2 days and making the move possible in under a week!

Thanks so much Mick, was a great experience!

As a recent mover to NYC, I quickly learned that the task of finding an apartment is one of the most unpleasant experiences a human in a first world country can encounter. At least, it could have been if it weren''t for Stephanie. With very little time before my job''s start date and an inability to travel to NYC to actually see properties, I was staring down the barrel of a gun with very few options for success. Before finding Stephanie, I was using the generous time granted to me by my NYC-based sister who would act as my proxy visiting many of the properties I found online. My sister would travel to the properties, some of the comically oversold on the phone by the agent, and give me a video tour of the place. The results were mixed as I was only getting places that I could find online and without an ear to the ground in the city, I couldn''t get into the best options. I stumbled upon Stephanie''s listing and after a single call, she immediately agreed to pick up the slack for my sister, even giving me the same detailed video tours as she had. She was always a text or call away unlike many of the other realtors/agents/brokers who didn''t care to give that personal touch. Within merely a couple days, I went from no prospects to several beautiful options that I never would have discovered without her expertise and dedication. Once I selected what is now my current apartment, Stephanie continued to provide day-by-day, sometimes hour-by-hour consultation on how to proceed with my application. She has even followed up with me to ask how my move in has gone. You want to trust someone to do the job right in a industry full of crooks and shysters? Call up Stephanie right now.

3/27/2017 I spent a Saturday afternoon with Howard Hauptman. I provided rental unit / neighborhood preferences in the week leading up to Saturday and all of the units we visited met or exceeded these requirements. Most of the units did not have a fee, either. Howard came prepared to view at least 10 units. He was punctual, cordial, and professional. At no point did I feel rushed though I was taking time on a weekend. Additionally, he resides in the area which makes him quite knowledgeable about different landlords. I signed a lease for a rental unit we visited and I could not be happier with the process. Howard made it easy. I connected with him via a friend (who he remembered 8 months later!). Will G. Manhattan, New York, NY

Very positive experience with this agent all around! Attentive, prompt, and efficient experience. While we did not end up leasing from this agent, excellent experience. Not pushy, and will work with you based off your needs.

Want to say how wonderful it was to work with Paloma. It was a long process in my apartment search but she was amazing the whole time, and was attentive to my exact needs. She was on time with her appointments, if not early, and always had a list of places to see within my exact requirements. I would absolutely recommend her as she is on top of her game and has a wide network across a large territory. So whatever your requirements are, she will help you. 5 star

We had a great experience looking for apartments with Jesse Lerner. He knew exactly what we wanted, and didn''t waste our time with apartments outside of our criteria. After we picked a place, he continued to help us throughout the lease signing process, and even after the lease was signed to ensure that we had a positive experience. He is also a very amiable, helpful guy! I would definitely work with Jesse and the rest of the Anchor Associates team to find an apartment in the future.

My friend and I worked with Rick Naylor and I have to say that he did an incredible job and exceeded all my expectations.. Rick was helpful, organized and was nice enough to compile an itinerary for our viewing days. I thought this whole process was going to be a pain in the a** but Rick made it simple and quite enjoyable.. He went out of his way to meet with me at work when I couldn''t step out of the office and gave great advice throughout our search.. Ended up finding a sweet place in Gramercy and have no one else to thank but Rick! I highly recommend Rick Naylor to anyone looking to find a pad in the NYC area. Cheers

Zack made our NYC renting experience a breeze! He was up front about the paperwork we needed, showed us a variety of apartments, and stayed on the management company even when things got complicated. Very professional and incredibly easy to work with. I would recommend Zack to any friend looking for an apartment!

- Cate H. On Yelp!,   March 24, 2017
 
Zack was not only extremely quick to respond to my inquiry, but he managed to compile a great selection of apartments within my budget and wishlist. Would definitely love to work with him again in the future, and can''t recommend him enough!

John Dugan - 5 stars is not enough for this guy! The words that instantly come to mind to describe John are knowledgeable (born and raised in the city), personable (you''ll want to invite him and his family over for dinner), thorough, tenacious for his clients and all around real estate rock star! I''ve had two apartments in NYC - the first one I secured on my own and it was every bit the nightmare I was afraid it would be. Then I had a random conversation with a woman on a SWA flight from Dallas to NYC who told me how she moved her daughter to NYC and used this agent named John and could not stop raving about him. I wasn''t looking to make a move at the time and had heard less than positive stories about NYC agents, but went ahead and snapped a pic of his contact info to be polite and "just in case". Two months later I found out I needed to move and after one or two calls on my own decided I''d give an agent a try and went scrolling for John''s info - by far that was the best picture I''ve ever taken! John has a knack for not wasting time without being abrupt. On our first call he explained his background and then asked me what I was looking for in my new place. He knew the right questions to ask that go far beyond price- what could I not live without? View? Nightlife? Did I need to be near a certain subway or bus route for work? Was I open to different areas? After we nailed down the basics he went to work - and man does he go to work! We spent a total of about 8 hours over 2 days looking at a fantastic variety of units - he set up the appointments, knew the promotions/deals of each, pointed out features in each neighborhood, etc. And he obviously *listens* to his clients - every apartment we looked at included my top priorities. I can''t stress enough how important it is to work with an agent who knows the city as intimately as John does. I thought I wanted to stay downtown, but ended up in a different neighborhood I would have never considered - and it''s even more fabulous that I imagined. Because of his research, I ended up in a brand new high rise with 3 months free rent and a list of other perks. The application process was of course painful (NYC and their rental nonsense - ugh), but John ran interference and did all the leg work for me until the process was completed. Honestly, I cannot fathom having to go through that on my own. Net/net - Call John Dugan, and get ready enjoy your new place in the city!

It was so great working with Paloma Cacho-Sousa. We went looking at places all over midtown and she was able to show me places that completely fit my itinerary. This was my first time living on my own and because of Paloma''s help I was able to feel completely confident with my new apartment. She was so AMAZING to work with and I highly recommend that those looking for a new place reach out to Paloma ASAP.

Best realtor I have ever had (this is my 7th real estate deal). Full service one-stop shop. A friend and a professional at the same time. Great positive attitude and composure under stress.

I''ve worked with Nick a few times, as well as recommended him to friends. He''s always super responsive, prompt, knowledgable and great to work with. I also like that he''s never been pushy- listens to what we''re looking for, tailors the searches to what will work best and understands if I need to critique my search or are not quite ready to make a decision. I will continue to reach out to Nick for future moves and I can''t recommend him enough!

- Nicole C. Zillow.com 7/12/2016,   March 10, 2017
 
My experience working with Nick to find a downtown NYC apartment was outstanding. He is detail oriented, listened to exactly what I was looking for in an apartment, and came up with a plan to view over a half dozen excellent apartment options in short notice. Every place he showed to us fit the criteria we were looking for, and he knew each building/management group inside and out. He is extremely responsive in his communication, honest in his opinions, has an excellent perspective on the market and is a pleasure to work with. I have already recommended Nick to some of my friends to assist in their apartment hunt!

- A.G.H. Zillow.com 8/30/2016,   March 10, 2017
 
Nick was instrumental in finding a gem of an apartment for us in the West Village! He was quick to set up appointments and went out of his way to make sure we were able to see anything available. He made the entire process seamless -- from the apartment search, to the broker/landlord negotiations, to signing the lease. Although finding an apartment in Manhattan can be daunting, Nick made it easy. By far the best broker we''ve had in New York. It was such a pleasure working with Nick and will recommend him to all our family and friends!

- Sarah C. Zillow.com 11/01/2016,   March 10, 2017
 
Nick was very helpful in every aspect of helping me find a new home. I was relocating from Chicago to New York so there were was a lot of extra work that went into communication, helping with local knowledge, and setting up showings. Nick was quick to respond and answered all the questions I had throughout the process. Would definitely use him in the future and would recommend him to anyone, friends and family included, for rental or sales needs.

Working with Jesse Lerner to find a great apartment was painless and fun! He was very knowledgeable about each apartment we visited and was always available for any questions we had. We were looking for a 2BR Flex apartment and he really helped us envision how we could make the space work for our needs. I''d also like to give a shoutout to Rick Naylor and Nick Campbell for helping with the whole process! I''d definitely recommend working Anchor Associates.

When I decided to move to NYC, the prospect of finding the right apartment was daunting. However, I found the right man for the job when I reached out to Rick Naylor to help with the process. He showed my roommate and I some great spots and ultimately found the ideal option for us in the location we were looking for and for a great deal! He could not have been more professional and helpful from the first showing until the date we moved in! I would recommend Rick and Anchor Associates to anyone looking for their dream apartment in Manhattan!

Searching for my first NYC apartment was such a positive experience thanks to Jesse at Anchor Associates. Jesse was professional, knowledgeable and very patient given my many questions and concerns. I walked into the apartment search knowing very little about NYC real estate. Once we started looking at apartments, it was clear that I was in good hands. Jesse took into consideration my MANY requests and found me an amazing apartment. He helped me and my roommate through the entire process and, even once we signed the lease, I was still able to reach out to him for guidance.

My wife and I used yelp to help us find a broker for our apartment search. We were a little nervous about the prospect of finding a place as we have a 2 month old baby. But luckily yelp did not fail us and we were able to work with Devin Graham. He could not have made the search easier or have been more accommodating. He showed us a lot of great options and then followed up with us after we had moved in to see how we were liking our new home and neighborhood. Working with Devin was by far the best experience we have had looking for an apartment in the city and we will definitely be asking for his help in our next apartment hunt.

- Joseph (Yelp) March 2017,   March 09, 2017
 
Devin was an absolute pleasure to work with, and really worked hard to find us the right place. Very professional and understanding. Would recommend to anyone looking to make a move.

5.0 star rating 3/2/2017 Scott Schiller was wonderful to work with. He was available anytime I needed him, and got back to me extremely quickly with all of my questions. He worked extremely hard to make sure I was happy with the apartment, and when I needed to relocate earlier than anticipated, he went above and beyond in helping to find a new tenant in order to ease the financial burden of the situation. I can not speak more highly of his work ethic and his character - anyone would be fortunate to have him as their agent.

- Jake C. (yelp),   March 02, 2017
 
I really can''t rave enough about John. I had sworn off brokers and had no interest in working with one when I met him, he''s clearly the exception and not the rule in this industry. I feel like saying he goes above and beyond doesn''t give him the justice he deserves, he really is a rare find and working with him is a game changer. I can''t recommend him enough, he won''t let you down

- Courtney Q. (yelp),   March 02, 2017
 
John Dugan was fantastic to work with! He made the painful process of looking at lots of apartments easy and efficient! He showed us around for 3 days until we finally found a great apartment! When we move again, I''m definitely reaching out to him. Highly recommended!

- Niclas B. (yelp),   February 24, 2017
 
John Dugan was a great guide to the apartment market in the UES. Prompt and professional in communications and helpful in showing me a number of apartments.

I had a great experience with Devin! He was amazing! Me and my husband found the best apartment thanks to Devin! If you are looking for something I recommend you to ask for him!

- Fernanda (Yelp) February 2017,   February 22, 2017
 
It was awesome working with Devin Graham! After reaching out to several agents through listings I found on Naked Apartments and other sites, Devin was the only agent who actually followed through with helping us see multiple apartments. Devin was very easy to work with and always very responsive. He showed us several apartments in our price range and made the application process extremely easy. I would definitely recommend working with Devin and I would definitely work with Devin again.

- Carol (Yelp) February 2017,   February 20, 2017
 
Vidal is amazing! What a dedicated agent, excellent communicator and client advocate. Vidal was on point and helped us throughout each stage of the rental process. He secured the apartment of our dreams all within a weeks time. I simply cannot convey how thankful my husband and I are for all his hard work! We cannot wait to use his services again. Highly recommend Vidal Benbasat.

- Nadira,   February 15, 2017
 
Devin was very professional and helped us find just the apartment we were looking for. He took his time to show us multiple apartments and was always patient. He even took us back to an apartment at a later date so we could make sure it was the one we wanted. Devin responded promptly to texts, calls and emails. He was with us until the day we signed our lease. Look no further, let Devin help you find the apartment you want.

- Emilio (Renthop) February 2017,   February 14, 2017
 
I like to give Scott Schiller from Anchor associates, A nice five star rating. I was in a situation where I needed a two bedroom apartment, I told him exactly what I''m looking for and he went above and beyond the call of duty and nailed it on the first try. I did not have to run around all over New York looking at different apartments..thank you. I would do business with him again and recommend him to anyone looking in the New York City area.

- Jose R. (yelp),   February 09, 2017
 
Devin was an absolutely terrific broker. He was knowledgeable about the area we wanted, listened to all of our needs and worked tirelessly to help us zero in on exactly the types of apartments we were looking for. He was also very patient and laid back, which was nice to have in a broker. I would definitely recommend him to anyone searching for an apartment!

- Jocelyn (Renthop) February 2017,   February 08, 2017
 
Paloma Cacho-Sousa took a very stressful apartment search and made it easy and enjoyable. I have never rented before but needed to find a rental due to a job change that requires a commute. I was looking for somewhere that I can commute from during the week and I would return to my house on the weekend. A lot going on all at the same time. From the minute I spoke with Paloma on the phone and then the apartment hunting trips, she made me feel at ease. She asked the right questions of me, gave me an idea of the questions I should be asking and took me to units that fit what family was looking for. She was very well prepared and spent a lot of time with us. I not only found an apartment but I also found a friend.

- Donna D.,   February 06, 2017
 
When I first started my apartment search, I started scouring sites like Naked Apartments, Rent Hop, etc. and I happened to message Ozzy about an apartment listing that he had posted. Within minutes, I received a response telling me that he has a whole bunch of places that would fit what I''m looking for. This was a huge relief given that I''d been turned away from other brokers that told me I was looking too early. Not Ozzy. He found some GREAT apartments that fit my move-in date with no problem. I actually went out with another broker to just see what else was out there and was SO disappointed because none of them held a candle to the apartments that Ozzy had showed me. He does his research and knows exactly what''s out there and which ones are worth showing (as opposed to some brokers that take you to an apartment that they''ve never seen before and hope it works) Even through some speed bumps (losing apartments, indecisive moments on my part) he stuck with me through the entire process. He also helped me get the price down on the apartment that I really wanted that was just a little more than I wanted to spend. I ended up moving into that apartment a few weeks ago and I couldn''t be happier. Even post move-in, Ozzy was in touch to make sure that everything was good and the move-in went smoothly. Highly recommend!!!

- Jessica G-Yelp,   February 03, 2017
 
When my wife and I decided to move to New York, we got in touch with Oswald. He immediately understood the type of neighborhood, and kind of apartment we were looking for. By the time we landed in New York, he had a series of units ready to be seen, and in 2 days we were able to sign the lease. All the apartments he found for us were exactly what we were looking for. Throughout the process he''s been very understanding, flexible, helpful, and friendly. We couldn''t be happier with the service Oswald provided and we definitely recommend him.

- Apo-Yelp,   February 03, 2017
 
A friend and I were moving from California, and we needed to find a place to live quickly. Ozzie was an important asset in our search for an apartment in Manhattan. He was very helpful, professional, and easy to work with. He made a point to communicate regularly throughout the entire process and was able to answer any questions we had. We trusted him to find the right apartment for us based on location and price and he did not disappoint. He made the experience as easy as possible. I will definitely use him again in the future, and have recommended him to many of my friends. I highly encourage anyone and everyone in need of an apartment in NYC to contact him.

Paloma was great- she was very informative, and understood what I wanted. She helped expedite the process with the landlord- it was the smoothest transition, and lease signing I have ever encountered. thanks Paloma!!

I had a great pleasure working with Scott Schiller as my agent. He got me familiar with all the laws and information regarding renting policy of NY, providing me all the important details. His long-time expertise in the field could be very much indicated as he handled my situation, which was urgent, very well. He guided me through contractual papers smoothly, providing me great understanding of the case. On top of that he was always available, even for all types of small questions and clarifications. Scott made me feel really welcome even before I moved in. At every point he made sure I was comfortable and helped me on many fronts. Thank you for great services Scott.

- Lovro V. (Yelp),   February 01, 2017
 
We had a great experience working with Scott Schiller on renting our apartment. Our family had 45 days to be out of our apartment, and during a slow leasing month (December) we were starting to get a bit stressed about finding a place or having to settle for something less than what we wanted. Luckily we came across Scott''s listing for a condo unit in the Upper West Side. We had only been in rental buildings previously, but Scott was EXTREMELY helpful in navigating the condo approval process. He was always available for calls or responding to emails with questions, nudged along the various parties in the process (landlord, management company, condo board, etc), and always made sure that we were comfortable and that our questions were answered. Even a month later, he sent us an email to check in on our moving date to hear how things went, showing that he truly cares about customer satisfaction throughout the process. While we didn''t rely on Scott to show us multiple apartments, I can unequivocally recommend Scott as a broker who knows his properties and has the right relationships to help make a transition as seamless as possible. He is there to answer questions and facilitate the process, which makes it as easy as possible on you as the tenant. Thanks Scott!

My family and I had a wonderful experience searching for apartments with John. John is someone who will work tirelessly to make sure you find your perfect place. He listened to my concerns and was genuinely invested in my search. I always felt comfortable knowing that John approved of a certain apartment. I am happy to call John a friend now, and would instantly recommend him to anyone who is looking for apartments in the city. John is the man!

- Catherine V. (yelp),   January 31, 2017
 
We have nothing but fabulous things to say about Mick! Having previously used Ben to find my prior apartment, he immediately referred me (now plus fiancé) to Mick. With less than three days to prepare, Mick arrived with a list of 12-17 apartments, all within our ideal neighborhood and meeting our specifications. By the end of the day, we had submitted our application for the apartment we live in now! We couldn''t be happier with the service Mick provided and would not hesitate to recommend the Anchor team in the future. No doubt, when we move again, we know who to call! Thank you Mick, Ben and team!

- Amanda M. Yelp.com 1/29/17,   January 30, 2017
 
Our experience working with John Dugan, from Anchor Associates, was as "good as it gets". We needed someone very familiar and knowledgeable with the NYC apartment rental market since we are not from NY. We spent two days with John looking at multiple apartments, from the lower East side to the Upper East side. John was incredibly flexible and patient, and had an incredible knowledge of every aspect - apartments, restaurants, tourist attractions, night life, etc. - of NYC being a native New Yorker, which was invaluable to us. We have already referred John to another family member, as well as another family friend, and we are confident that they will have the same incredibly positive experience with him that we did. My wife and I highly recommend John Dugan and Anchor Associates.

- Dan O. (yelp),   January 26, 2017
 
Elliot was the coolest, best broker we could''ve asked for! He was friendly, approachable, helpful, and most importantly patient; he very graciously showed us the same apartment on 4 separate occasions without pressuring us to commit, and while we were still short a roommate, too. While the process of applying to the apartment was still stressful, he made it much smoother by making us all feel relaxed and helping us with each step. 5/5 would recommend to a friend! Or a stranger, whoever.

- Aster G.,   January 23, 2017
 
DEVIN GRAHAM of Anchor Associates NY is the kindest, most courteous, most professional broker we have ever met. He is incredibly proactive, having gone above and beyond to find the perfect apartment for us. He listened to our needs, respected our price range, and still gave us the much-needed reality check that one needs when hunting for an apartment in New York City. We recommend Devin a thousand times over. Bravo!

- Sara M. (Yelp) August 2016,   January 20, 2017
 
Devin was great to work with! Though I ended up moving forward with a different place, I worked with several brokers and Devin was by far the most responsive, inquisitive, flexible, and nice. I felt informed but not pressured, and really enjoyed visiting apartments with him. He asked thorough questions to get to the heart of what we were looking for, and really came through with showing places that matched.

- Sara B. (Yelp) January 2017,   January 20, 2017
 
The minute you meet Devin, it's clear that he's a genuine and courteous guy. He spent hours and hours walking around the Upper East Side with me and my roommate, even knowing there was a chance we'd rent with another agent and therefore he'd never see money for his efforts. He worked tirelessly to help us find the perfect place and did just the right amount of hand-holding through a grueling application process. We have our perfect apartment, and Devin was the perfect agent!

- Kayla (Naked Apartments) December 2016,   January 20, 2017
 
Working with Devin was a pleasure. He really cares about the client and makes everything he can to find the best place. I highly recommend him!

Devin helped me and my husband find exactly what we were looking for and we could not be happier! He is patient, honest, and a pleasure to work with. Once we found the perfect apartment he was super helpful in making sure our application was in and answered any questions we had right away. Would highly recommend working with Devin!

- Zahava (Renthop) December 2016,   January 20, 2017

Devin was so great to work with throughout the whole process of finding an apartment. He went above and beyond accommodating everyone's schedules to view apartments and sign leases; really has the best interest of the client at heart. Would definitely recommend using Devin if you're looking for an apartment in NYC and want an honest and helpful salesperson.

- Lindsey (Renthop) January 2017,   January 20, 2017
 
Devin was an absolute pleasure to work with; prompt, courteous, and incredibly knowledgeable. I ultimately ended up taking another apartment, but was so impressed with Devin that I wanted to write a review anyway. Thank you, Devin, for your help and wisdom.

We had the most positive experience working with Nancy Elton at Anchor & Associates. She was positive, professional, and super helpful in our search. She went above and beyond trying to find us the perfect apartment with very specific criteria. She was very attentive to what we were looking for that fit in our budget range. In short Nancy is the best!

My girlfriend and I started our search three months before this previous Saturday (January 14, 2017) with Anchor Associates Group representative Rick Naylor, an agent that my girlfriend came into contact with through Anchor Associate Nick. Unlike previous experiences with agents, Rick made great use of his time with us, having showed us four scheduled apartments and a dozen others. He derived his list of apartments after vetting a long list of Renthop.com properties that we sent to him and developing an idea of what we desired in an apartment. We had to put our search on hold after our first meeting with Rick, which he understood. We told him that we would return to him after the new year. New Year passes and Rick sends a prompt email! The dude was on his game. We viewed a few more properties and settled on one that we''d seen previous. The process of getting approved wasn''t easy (the building''s leasing office was not transparent and we had to wait two weekdays (four from application submission) for the leasing agent to review our application and another day of getting more paperwork together that wasn''t requested by the leasing office off the bat. But such is life. We move forward. Rick handled the stress really well. And bless him for being so patient. My girlfriend and I combed the lease so finely, feeling that something would likely differentiate from what we were promised upon our first visit. We were right. And Rick handled our requests like a true professional. Our story ends with a new apartment and a great new relationship with Anchor Associates Group and wonderful guy named Rick. I''ll be sending his information along to a few of my friends who are preparing to move in the coming months. Thank you, guys, for everything!!

Nitza Christenberry from Anchor Associates is the BEST. She never tired of showing me apartments but most importantly she listened and understood my needs. I found the best apartment in just under 3 weeks. My DREAM apartment! Call her! :-))

- Martiza S. (yelp),   January 13, 2017
 
Anchor Associates is very professional and helpful! I worked with Phillip Estevez to find an apartment and the results exceeded all of my expectations! I was able to find my new place in a day and moved in within the week! Nothing pushy, very sincere and helpful and down to earth! My experience felt a million times less stressful than the past few moves I''ve had in NYC. 10/10 would recommend!

I''m brand new to the city and needed to find an apartment really fast. she responded to my first message within a few minutes, and immediately responded to my texts and emails. Emily took me to see so many amazing apartments, and made my apartment search waaaay less stressful. I''m recommending her to all of my friends!! Thanks Emily!!

I can''t say enough good things about Rick Naylor and the job he did to find me and my roommates an apartment. Rick was extremely accommodating and knowledgeable and always had a smile on his face. I will definitely refer him to friends.

Where do I start? I was a little apprehensive contacting a broker since I had just moved to NYC and had heard awful stories about how brokers try to take advantage of you. Hela was the complete opposite of those stories and more! I found her through one of those apartment rental websites and she was the only broker that answered my phone call. I told her what my husband and I were looking for, I sent her the listings we had found and we scheduled a meeting for her to show us some apartments. We ended up choosing a place that Hela found for us, she was very attentive to what we wanted, didn''t push us into making a decision and she was with us every step of the application process up to signing the lease. I also need to mention that she quickly responded our questions through texts and emails, which is very important when trying to get an apartment in the city :) I recommend her to anyone that even mentions wanting to rent an apartment in NYC! We couldn''t have been luckier to have had Hela as our broker and I am so thankful she found us exactly what we wanted!

I''ve had the greatest experience working with John Dugan from Anchor Associates! My hunt for an apartment started a couple of months ago and John can tell you that I was very particular about the type of apartment I wanted and the area that I wanted it in. John was more than attentive, efficient and hard working.. he was patient with me and my search which seemed to have dragged on for a while. After the first round of searches I decided to give up on the apartment hunt for a while I stayed with some friends yet John would check in on me regularly, even if it was just to say hello. We eventually reconnected a couple of weeks ago and long behold I was able to sign a lease within a space of a couple of days. It really does help that he had such extensive knowledge of the city as well as good relations with the leasing agencies. I don''t think I''ve ever met a broker who is so eager to help and it''s all thanks to him that I am now a tenant in a beautiful Upper East Side apartment! Would recommend him without hesitation! Thank you John, you''re simply the best!

Stephanie helped my roommate and I find an apartment in summer 2016, and was very helpful and responsive to our preferences. She was available virtually 24/7 regarding inquiries or concerns we had, and additionally provided follow up advice. Not only is she knowledgeable about the neighborhood, but the process involved with lease negotiations and the lessee/management dynamic. Have recommended her to friends, and would do so again.

- Nathan H. (Zillow),   December 19, 2016
 
Steph is amazing! I was in desperate need of an apartment and only had a few days to find the perfect place. Within a few hours, Steph met me in the East Village with a list of gorgeous, affordable apartments tailored to my needs. Highly recommended!

I had the pleasure of working with Kate at Anchor Associates and had the BEST experience! Right away after speaking with her she knew exactly what I was looking for and every unit she showed fit with what my needs/wants were. Normally it is very difficult to find a broker that is as professional and knowledgeable as Kate. I highly recommend Kate at Anchor as she made which can be a very frustrating and stressful process a breeze! Couldn''t have found my dream apt without her!

- Mariesa DeGasperis,   December 19, 2016
 
Kate was the absolute best at helping me find my dream apartment. She met us at a convenient location in the neighborhood of my choice. We looked at 10 apartments and she was extremely patient and honest giving her opinion on the apartments (pricing, sizing, and location). That day I had an application in for the apartment I wanted and signed the lease the very next day. She wasn''t pushy, or "trying to make the sale" but was still honest about pricing and fees. She''s also very personable and friendly and it felt like I was hanging out with a friend while apartment hunting. Thank you Kate for making my first apartment in NYC seem less and (sort of) fun :)

- Rhianna C,   December 19, 2016
 
When I had to find an apartment ASAP because of a break-up with my girlfriend I went through a week of endless frustrating searches that would lead me nowhere. Finding apartment as we all know it in NY City is not easy taking into account the cost, neighborhood, noise, street taking everything into account. The whole process can be very overwhelming and frustrating but then I got in contact with Mr. Scott Schiller. I have never worked with someone that diligent, knowledgeable, taking his time for questions. Scott just took one day to find me a list of 9 apartments all depending on the information I provided for him. Scott showed me the first apartment and I did not need to see the others because I knew that this was it due to Scott''s in-depth knowledge about the real-estate market and what neighborhoods give you the best value for least amount of money. Scott made my stressful move a lot less stressful as the apartment was secured within 4 days. I can''t thank Scott enough for his professional business acumen and great experience in the real-estate market. Next time I have a friend who looks for an apartment, I know that I will recommend Scott because he gets the job done very efficiently in a very responsible way so that as an apartment searcher you are left with minimal amount of work. Not only is Scott easy to work with but he is also a genuinly easy person to work with because of his awesome personality. If you are thinking about renting an apartment, you should really talk and work with Scott. In sum Scott was very helpful, caring and an outstanding professional. Based on what I needed, he showed me the best selection of apartments and I could not be happier.

12/11/2016 Natalia Stoyanova was extremely helpful in helping my wife and I find a place in a short amount of time. Moving to NYC from another city can be overwhelming, but Natalia made us feel comfortable and made the process less stressful. She was very candid and straightforward but most importantly, she listened to our feedback which helped us select the right place quickly.

- Kyle R.,   December 14, 2016
 
12/8/2016 Natalia Stoyanova is absolutely amazing! I moved from London and after being completely blown off by another agent, she responded within 30 minutes to my last minute request and then stayed with me throughout the next couple of days showing me apartments that fit my requirements exactly. I made an offer on my place after only 4 days! She has great relationships with the buildings leasing agents and is able to set your expectations both in what you can expect and what you can expect to pay. She is so sweet and diligent and really works for you. I cannot recommend her enough!

- Sara C.,   December 14, 2016
 
12/6/2016 Natalia did an incredible job helping me and my roommates find the perfect room in a high rise apartment. We are all recent grads and so first time apartment hunting can be tough (!) but Natalia was very understanding of this and went out of her way to make this transition and find as smooth and uncomplicated as possible. She showed us a variety of places, never going too far out of our desired range and always double checked with us if she wanted to show us something a little different than originally intended. At the end, it worked out great and we love our place. I would highly recommend Natalia if you are new to apartment searching because she explains things clearly and proactively brings up topics that are important to consider which I wouldn''t have thought of myself. She kept in touch after to ask how things are which we also greatly appreciated. Many thanks to Natalia!

12/6/2016 I met Natalia over 3 years ago when I was planning my move from California to New York, she helped me so greatly in finding my very first apartment in Midtown Manhattan that i absolutely loved! I never wanted to leave, I lived there for 2 years. It checked all the boxes i had for an apartment. She listened to what I wanted and needed and worked so hard to find the perfect fit. She made the entire new, confusing process for me so much better and easier. She made me feel comfortable and made sure i understood everything. From that apartment, she helped me search and search for my current apartment that I purchased. And buying an apartment in Manhattan is an even more confusing long process but she was with me every step of the way making sure everything went smoothly and that everything was clear to me. I recommend her to any friends/ family that are looking for a new place because she truly is the best at what she does and I wouldn''t know what I would of done without her! love you Natalia!!

I am a new designer in NYC. When I realized I had to move into the city right away, I found Belinda Cruz. She was amazing! She was quick with her knowledge, very efficient, didn''t waste anytime, and was able to show me several different apartments in just a short time. Additionally, she was knowledgeable about the city, the prices and transportation opportunities. I finally found the right apartment and it was all in just 2 days! I honestly could not have started my new job without her finding me a place right away. She was a savior!

- Alexa S.-Yelp.com,   December 13, 2016
 
Nitza was the best! Caring, kind, and knowledgeable. She was also so efficient and helped me navigate the wild NY application process with ease.

- Grace M. (Yelp),   December 12, 2016
 
When I moved back to the city, I wasn''t sure how I was going to find an apartment. Moving can be extremely daunting, especially cross-country. Luckily I happened upon Emily Barry and Anchor Associates. Emily took me to see multiple apartments and each and every one of the felt like an absolute deal for NYC! She was early to every viewing, which I appreciate immensely. I''ll definitely be recommending her to my friends!

- Kim C.,   December 12, 2016
 
Amy Wang is a great agent who helped my uncle from China get his dream apartment. During the entire process, not only was Amy knowledgeable about the area and the overall real estate market in the New York city, but also was patient and diligent. Without Amy, my uncle would not be able to get this unit that he is so much in love with. Thank you, Amy.

- Phillip S.,   December 11, 2016
 
Emily made our apartment search so stress free. She was honest and down to earth, a breath of fresh air from some brokers I''ve dealt with who come off as pushy. Emily listened to exactly what we wanted and explained to us what the best options would be for our budget. She knows so much, and I''d definitely recommend her!

- Celeste H.,   December 08, 2016
 
John Dugan was an absolute pleasure to work with - my roommate and I found him to be knowledgeable, patient, and very thorough. He was extremely professional throughout the entire process, and made sure that all of our questions and concerns were appropriately addressed. The process of searching for an apartment in NYC can be extremely daunting and stressful, and John made it a painless process for us. If you are looking to move in NYC, John is your man! Highly recommended!

Working with Omer Shaish was such a great experience. He was well informed, completely organized and most importantly, very personable. I never felt like I wasn''t being heard or that my needs weren''t being met. He showed me multiple apartments that fit exactly what I was looking for and didn''t push me to look anything I wasn''t sure about. I completely and whole heartedly recommend working with with Omer if you get a chance to use Anchor NYC. So great!

- Caroline A.,   December 06, 2016
 
Omer Shaish will work persistently and tirelessly to help you secure your dream apartment. When he showed me apartment number ten (and he had said all along that I would need to see at least ten apartments!) I told him "this is it." I ran back to work to meet with an important client while Omer ran to the management company''s office in order to submit my rental application. To our dismay, we found out that I was a little too late (by just a few minutes!). Someone else had submitted an application for the apartment. I called Omer anxiously and told him I was just going to settle for our second choice, but he advised me to wait it out. Omer stayed in the management office FOR HOURS waiting to confirm whether or not the other application would be approved. It turned out that the other app wasn''t approved and so he was able to submit my application on the spot! Had it not been for his patience, responsiveness, carefulness and overall expertise I would have completely lost out on an awesome apartment. I wholeheartedly recommend Omer Shaish!

- Javier S.,   December 06, 2016
 
Omer Shaish in August during my apartment search. Of all the brokers I worked with he was by far the best. He has a great eye for units and understood exactly what I was looking for and didn''t waste my time with listings that would never have met our criteria. Although I ultimately pursued a listing I had found on my own I would highly recommend Omer to friends looking for an apartment.

- Robert R.,   December 06, 2016
 
Omer Shaish was one of the most enthusiastic and professional brokers I have had the pleasure of working with. Throughout the process he showed us every listing on the market he thought would be a match, having listened to our needs so closely. Omer is very quick to respond to all communication, something that is imperative with the real estate market moving so quickly in Manhattan. I would highly recommend Omer to anyone looking for a personalized service when finding their new home.

- Jodie R.,   December 06, 2016
 
Had a wonderful experience working with Omer this past summer. He understood what we were looking for and showed us some great options. I would definitely reach out to him again when we are ready to move again in the future

- Stephanie L.,   December 06, 2016
 
My two roommates and I were desperately looking for places, just two weeks before classes begun. During that time I felt hopeless, but a good friend recommend Omer Shaish from Anchor Associates. I was so grateful to meet Omer because he understood our needs and was able to show us many incredible places that we could chose from. Omer was a huge help, making our apartment search and process incrediably easy, fast and stress free.

My girlfriend and I had a great experience working with Natalia Stoyanova to find our apartment. She was incredibly helpful and planned multiple days of visits to multiple apartment throughout our target neighborhoods. She was very professional without feeling like she was there just for the fee - it felt like she honestly wanted us to find the perfect apartment. She was very good at identifying apartments that fit our preferences and ultimately we found a great one bedroom in Hell''s Kitchen that we will be renewing this coming spring. We highly recommend Anchor and Natalia in particular!

- Michael L.,   December 05, 2016
 
When I was looking for a lux apartment to rent, Natalia Stoyanova help me find my place within couple days. She was very helpful, caring and professional. Base on what I need, she show me a large range of apartments. After help me narrow down the choices, she calculate the offers and gave me the best recommendation. On the signing day, she carefully went through all the numbers and make sure the offer was final and clear. I will call her again for sure when my lease is up.

I had a great experience working with Zack. As a foreigner moving to the city and needing to find an apartment asap, Zack quickly got an understanding of what I was looking for and didn''t waste time, only taking me to view quality places where he knew my international status wouldn''t cause any issues. He was very patient and didn''t pressurize my decision, and was extremely supportive and accommodating during the whole process, in particular helping me with the approval process and paperwork to ensure we got the deal closed as quickly as possible. Overall I''d highly recommend Zack; he''s proactive, efficient, and a very competent and trustworthy broker who clearly worked hard to get the best outcome for me.

My experience with Natalia Stoyanova and Anchor was truly exceptional. I had one day to look for apartments, she had a list lined up for us to see, and delivered on everything I asked for in terms of location, price, and building amenities. I ended up getting a great deal on an apartment and absolutely love it. Thank you Natalia!

- Maya I.,   December 04, 2016
 
Natalia was very knowledgeable about each and every apartment that she brought us to look at. She always kept in mind what we wanted out of an apartment and never went out of our pride range. She was super sweet and very welcoming. It made the hectic process of getting an apartment super easy and stress free! She also had a great relationships with the people showing us the apartments. I would recommend her to anyone.

  December 04, 2016
 
I highly recommend Natalia Stoyanova at Anchor Associates Group. She helped my roommate and I find our dream apartment, and was relentless in negotiating the best rate on our behalf. Natalia handled all of the details and made it super easy to manage the lease signing process. She's the best!

Natalia Stoyanova helped my roommates and I find our first apartment in the city. She made an otherwise overwhelming process extremely efficient and easy. She''s a kind go-getter who knows how to find what you''re looking for. The expertise and professionalism were superb.

Coming from a small town in Massachusetts, I was nervous and hesitant about moving to the big apple. From the moment I met Natalia Stoyanova to the end of the whole process, I felt at ease. Natalia listened to everything I wanted in an apartment, from location to price, amenities, and everything else involved. She walked around the whole city with us to find the perfect apartment, and if we had asked her to take another loop she would've done that too. Natalia is so personable and genuine. One of my roommates, molly, was starting work two weeks before our lease started, and I remember Natalia instantly offering her spare bedroom in Astoria for molly to crash during those couple weeks. The entire experience with Natalia was perfect. I actually ran into her in my building with my mom a few weeks ago, she remembered us like it was yesterday! Natalia is the best!!

Amy is my property manager now after her great work finding me my first property in Manhattan. Although I knew this neighborhood a little bit but Amy still wowed me with her knowledge of the important background information when showing each apartment. I really enjoyed working with Amy and trusted her professional opinion and suggestions. She is the kind of trustworthy and professional real estate agent/broker that a home buyer really needed. Strongly recommended! ---HP, on Zillow

  December 03, 2016
 
I am here to recommend Amy to other home buyers. Amy found me an off market apt in the building i liked. She really understood what I want and reached out to get it for me. I really appreciate her ''Can Do'' attitude. I wont talk much about her expertise in midtown area and other part of Manhattan. I found her through zillow and I am so happy that I found the right one. --R J, on Zillow

My working with Amy Wang from Anchor was a very pleasant experience. Finding an apartment in the city is kind of headache. Amy listened to all my requirements, narrowed it down and showed my all matching apartment quickly. I was impressed by her professional attitude and knowledge. I liked the whole easy process under her help - I would highly recommend Amy when you looking for an apartment in NYC. ----Ying, on Yelp

- Ying L.,   December 03, 2016
 
I usually don't write Yelp reviews but I felt compelled to write one about Amy Wang. What I appreciated most about working with Amy was her strong sense of integrity and instinctual feel for the real estate market. Amy was very professional and patient in explaining the complicated process of home buying. That was definitely helpful and made the process as smooth as it could. I know who I will turn too next time for my real estate needs, and that is Amy Wang. ----Albert, on Yelp

Elliot Garcia is the best broker out there. He was not only capable of showing me apartments that had everything I wanted but also very professional, honest and sincere. I was able to connect to him in a personal level. Not going to lie, I was a difficult client--asking for a really really nice apartment, yet having a low budget. However, I felt very comfortable asking him, because he was very receptive and was able to find something that I really really liked. I recommend Elliott 110%. I am definitely reaching out to him for my next apartment search.

- Yuna J,   November 28, 2016
 
After living in NYC for a year, I''ve quickly realized that good brokers are few and far between. In fact, I usually go out of my way to avoid brokers at all costs. Due to the nature of my move and the time crunch that I was in, my girlfriend and I decided to indeed let a broker help us with our move. Elliot Garcia has forever changed my view and appreciation for brokers. He is very professional, attentive, and made sure to find us exactly what we were looking for given our budget, location and pet situation. He was very consistent with keeping us updated and did not hesitate to answer any and all questions we had day or night. I recommend Elliot 100%

- Andrew P,   November 28, 2016
 
This review is for Elliot Garcia. Brokers in NYC can be pushy annoying and try to make you look like you''re awful because you didn''t sign with them! Elliot was the exact opposite! He was super patient and had to wait half hour the first time he showed me an apartment, asked me exactly what I wanted and went on to show me listing he thought I''d like. He showed me only 4 but they were the best 4 anybody else had bothered to show! He''s great to work with, considerate and when it comes to brokers, you will most likely not find anyone nicer!

Unlike many brokers, John actually took the time to find out our needs, line up apartment viewings (12 in one day) that were within our budget, and then stayed persistent with the rental management company throughout the process. He was knowledgeable about the areas and the application process, answered all of my questions, and was genuinely interested that I felt great in my new home. While I doubt we will be moving anytime soon, in the future we will definitely work with John again!

genevieve a. genevieve a. Manhattan, NY 0 friends 1 review 5.0 star rating11/22/2016 I have lived in Manhattan (and multiple apartments in multiple neighborhoods) over the past 20 years, and my experience with John Dugan was by far one of the easiest and most efficient experiences with a broker. He is from NY and knows the city and neighborhoods very well, was extremely prompt with responses, listened to what I was looking for, and was able to show me a large range of apartments at my price point (and nothing extra). We found my apartment in one afternoon and he was able to negotiate a better price for me...within 2 days, we had a signed lease, exactly what I was looking for, in a place I am thrilled about! In addition to being extremely professional, John is down to earth, and just a really nice and honest guy. He went above and beyond what most brokers would do...including running across town to deliver my lease, and work around my difficult schedule. I would highly recommend John Dugan as a broker, and would use his services again if the need ever arose!

I am so grateful that I found Vidal Benbasat. He was kind, professional and honest. He took the time to educate me about the market, neighborhoods and was fully transparent about broker fees. He asked questions, listened to what I wanted and then thoughtfully came up with possibilities. Vidal loves what he does and it shows. I had the sense that he wanted nothing more than to find me an apartment that I loved. And I did, thanks to him.

Emily Barry and her firm were terrific to work with. She had great working knowledge of the various neighborhoods in Manhattan, didn''t waste your time (only showing apartments that fit my criteria) and hustled in trying to find (and close with the LL) the unit for me. Weekends, evenings, mornings; didn''t matter. She was responsive and always available at the time that worked for me, to take me to a listing. Highly recommended Emily and her for apt rentals in Manhattan.

I was lucky enough to find Paloma online when searching for an apartment to rent in NY in the lead-up to relocating here. From thousands of miles away, Paloma has been nothing short of fantastic in her approach, professionalism and support in helping me to find the property I wanted. Paloma followed my instructions as well as offering constructive suggestions. I was regularly sent suggestions to review and comment on. Upon arriving in NY, Paloma provided me a detailed schedule and accompanied me to a number of viewings. She did her job so well that I did not view a single apartment that I did not like. Ultimately, I found an apartment a day and half after arriving in NY and moved in a further 36 hours later. I cannot highly enough recommend Paloma''s services and will happily refer friends and colleagues who are looking for property in NY to her.

Rick was awesome!! Somehow he found my roommate and I, who were like those married couples on HGTV with completely different priorities, the perfect apartment. We couldn''t have done it without him. He was a pleasure to work with and incredibly helpful. He wasn''t pushy and was very informative. I would recommend him to anyone looking for their first NYC apartment :)

We just bought the apartment of our dreams with Ben Willig! At the beginning my younger daughter showed interest in an apt on Trulia and He immediately answered back. While I was in Italy visiting my family Ben showed the apt. to my husband and our 2 daughters. At that time - January 2016 - we started looking at the market : we had been living in the city for 2 years in a rental apt and wanted to buy our own place. That first apt didn't fill our requirements but it was the first contact between Ben and my family. He understood perfectly what we had in mind and showed us just what we could like. During the process he was never pushy and always gave us great advices. Finally, after a few months, we found the perfect place. Then he showed us GREAT negotiating skills! Even after we made our closing Ben is always there to help me to solve little problems I may have regarding the move in etc. Ben is the perfect broker and he is a great guy!!!

Natalia took out a large chunk of her Saturday to help me find a midtown/Hells Kitchen area apartment. I appreciated the fact that she did not try to push me into high price ranged apartments and was extremely transparent/honest about the statistics/financial aspects/etc. of each apartment. She did not brag about any of the apartments, but gave me cold hard facts (i.e., building restrictions, amenities, and concessions). I also appreciated that she knew each building and leasing office extremely well. I will not disclose the financial details of my leasing, but let's just say that she was able to help me save a large chunk of money. I would definitely come back to her or refer her for apartments in the area!

- DIYA LIU,   November 09, 2016
 
Patrick Sullivan was the most understanding and considerate person we have ever met. Having no experience of the NY or US way of doing things, he answered everyone of our silly little questions without judging us. He took the time to understand our needs, never pushed us and was prepared to spend whatever time was needed. We found a perfect apartment in Morningside Heights, and on day one, it was home to us.

Worked with Paloma Cacho-Sousa recently this September to help me find an apartment. She was highly professional in every part of the process and showed us a few amazing apartments. The process was completely transparent and she helped us navigate a market that my roommate and I were struggling to comprehend. While we ended up taking a place that we saw earlier in the week, I would highly recommend this company, and this broker again. I am sure we shall be using her services more going forward!

I was left high and dry when a lease signing fell through at the last minute so I needed to find a place urgently. Patrick Sullivan was recommended to me and gave me so much of his time and focus that I had an application in on another apartment by the end of the day. By far the best agent that I came across during my searching, Patrick was easy to trust, easy to work with, and always easy to contact too. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a place in Manhattan. 5 star service. Carole Y. Manhattan, NY 10/4/16

Great guy, extremely knowledgeable, easy to worth with and most importantly at no point did I feel pressured to make any decisions. Going forward I will certainly use him and I highly recommend others do the same.

I had the opportunity to work with Ozzie May of 2016. we all understand how stressful the move in process is in Manhattan. we emailed pretty regularly and I told him what I was looking for. upon meeting, Ozzie showed us about 4 apartments in the location we wanted and all within price range! (we all know brokers love to show us what we cant afford).. & I kid you not-same day we rented out the 1st apartment he showed us! it was 100% exactly what I had envisioned. we would gladly recommend Ozzie to any of our friends looking to rent in the city with an honest broker who wont give you a run around.

Let me start by saying that Emily Barry is an exceptional broker and consummate professional. Emily was helpful, knowledgeable, and knew the ins and outs of every unit we visited (and we visited a lot). Emily went above and beyond by truly understanding our preferences and goals in our NYC apartment hunt. She was also an expert at navigating the intricacies of our three roommate dynamic. Overall, I would give Emily 6 stars if I could.

- Dennis Z,   October 15, 2016
 
From the minute we met her on the day of our showing she made us feel at ease about the entire process. Kate was fun, relatable, and totally in touch with what we were looking for. Kate worked to make sure that we got the best deal. In each apartment she explained the specifics about the unit and anything to take note of. She explained any benefits and disadvantages of the listing. When we asked for her opinion she happily gave it as an expert and professional. We cannot say enough good things about the team at Anchor and will be referring to anyone looking for help with their next NYC apartment. Thanks so much!!!

Scott Schiller and his team has done a wonderful job of helping us stay in the fully furnished corporate apartment. Over the last few months our renovation in Manhattan, which is delayed and over budget, has kept us from moving into our permanent home, thus Scott has been a big help extending our lease as needed. His efforts prevented the potential disruption of moving to another temporary unit. Finally, working with him has been very efficient, timely and friendly which we appreciate wholeheartedly. Overall a great team to work with and highly recommended.

This review is for Stephanie Kenna. Stephanie was was very helpful, responsive and flexible to work around my schedule. She found several listings that matched my criteria and was always very prepared when we met. I can highly recommend Stephanie!

Elliot Garcia was really great to work with. I spent a couple days visiting the city having a lot of trouble with a lot of different agents. I got in touch with Elliot and he really made the job much easier. Within the first day he had contacted me back with the time to meet, had shown me a good location, and was back up to the office to get papers signed as soon as I made the request. He was incredibly kind to work with and talk to, he took the time to hear my concerns and also was fun to talk about the city with. If you''re looking for someone with a good heart, and accommodating personality and want to make your move easier speak to Elliot. I wish I had called him day 1!

- Corey A,   September 27, 2016
 
Rick Naylor was our broker and he found us such an amazing and affordable apartment on the first try! He really listened to what we wanted and was so helpful throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend him to everyone and will definitely use him again next time we move. He was genuine in his efforts to find us a great place to live. He was extremely helpful whenever any questions arose, he was prompt and he was very fun to get to know. We are very grateful for his help and it was such a pleasure meeting him!

- Chrissy M. Yelp.com 9/25/16,   September 26, 2016
 
For anyone looking for an apartment I highly recommend working with this brokerage firm and Elliott Garcia in particular. After spending countless hours with a number of brokers who failed to meet our needs my roommates and I were lucky to get in contact with Elliott. Elliott went out of his way to ensure he was showing us apartments that met our criteria exactly, and was incredibly accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process. He was straight forward and honest, punctual and attentive, and really a pleasure to work with.

- Michael R,   September 21, 2016
 
Elliott Garcia was an absolute joy to work with! During our search we worked with several different brokers and Elliott stood out above the rest. He never tried using any shady tactics, unlike some of the other brokers at different companies. He was a straight shooter through and through. 10/10 would recommend to friends and family.

- Luke W,   September 21, 2016
 
Hela was great! She found us exactly what we were looking for and was extremely efficient at locking down the apartment. I would absolutely recommend her for anyone looking in the NYC area for apartments! 5/5 stars.

- Diana,   September 20, 2016
 
Hela Erez is an excellent broker - she is honest with her clients and sincerely cares about finding the best apartment for their individual needs. She has great connections with top-notch buildings and is willing to try to work with the buildings to work out optimal rents and payment structures. She is always on time for appointments and is very organized. Hela was the only broker I worked with who showed me apartments that were top contenders for my move. The only reason I didn''t rent through her was my current building ended up lowering my rent when it came time to renew my lease, so it made sense economically to stay. I will be working with her next time my lease is up.

- Alicia,   September 20, 2016
 
Hela was really helpful and reliable across the "finding-the-right-apt" process. She was always there on time and tried to genuinely understand what I am looking for. The apts we''ve visited reflected this and finally I''ve found my current home with her help! Really supportive and kept her promises in every regards.

- Aniko,   September 20, 2016
 
Hela was great from the start. She responded promptly, agreed to meet us entirely on our schedule (we only had one free day to look), had an entire days' worth of apartments ready to view in our price range and preferred area, and was very knowledgeable about each apartment and the city in general. She was really a pleasure to work with, and she was genuinely and noticeably honest -- not just trying to sell us on every apartment. We ended up spending most of the day with her, then leaving to meet another broker that we promised to meet for an hour (he didn't even compare to Hela!), and then meeting back up with Hela and renting an apartment from her. Hela was nice, smart, honest, and worked hard. I recommend giving her a call/email.

Gregg represented me in a complex deal that involved selling my condo and buying a coop. The deal went smoothly and was very successful. I thought that I couldn''t arrange all this, but Gregg got the whole deal done and now I have a fantastic coop.

- Caron Chase,   September 16, 2016
 
Gregg is a really polished, polite and upfront agent. He''s the type of person you feel is trustworthy, transparent and open about the actual situation. He showed us a property several times and was very patient and accommodating each time. I would definitely work with Gregg again

  September 16, 2016
 
Having done extensive business in NYC I can honestly say there is no shortage of folks who just don''t get the job done right, however, our experience in working with Gregg was nothing short of 5-stars. There were several good brokers working in our area(East Harlem), however, Gregg really understood how subjective the market can be at times and how that as well as proper marketing could help us as opposed to only going by comparables which don''t always tell the whole story. He was great with our potential clients and even when the market started to move slightly against us never pressured us to sell or lower our price putting us in a situation we were not comfortable with. His communication was great and I found him to be completely upfront about every step of our process and negotiations with clients. At the end of the day we got the best price for our apartment that we could have possibly gotten and a large part of that was due to Gregg''s guidance and level headed negotiations. Highly recommended if you want a quality broker to help sell your property.

Kate is a rock star!!!

- Jenny Bergman,   September 12, 2016
 
Collaborating with Scott Schiller was an absolute pleasure. He made a complex and stressful process feel comfortable and simple. Scott was highly communicative, responsive, and professional. When we first spoke over the phone, he quickly took a genuine interest in my goals. This was equally encouraging and refreshing. Scott guided me through all essential renting steps and executed a smooth application/approval process. I''d highly recommend contacting Scott when seeking a home suited for your specific needs. I''m grateful that we connected, and I would absolutely reach out to him again in the future!

Vidal Benbasat is fantastic. He was the broker for me and my roommate as we looked for our first NYC apartment. He was extremely responsive--called me on a Sunday within minutes after first emailing about an apartment!--and he helped us throughout every step of the process. He was knowledgable and persistent without EVER being pushy. Plus, you feel like you''re working with a real person and not just a broker, someone who truly is looking out for you, being honest with you, and trying to get you the best deal. As various issues (on our end) popped up along the way, Vidal was always patient, helpful, and above all, incredibly understanding and sweet. We had looked at several apartments (and met several brokers) before this and were starting to get discouraged--Vidal changed that. He snagged us our dream apartment, winning out against other applicants in the process, and was clearly so happy just to see how happy we were with the place. This work ethic and kindness extends to the rest of the team: Claire was also great, helping out and talking with us when we went in to discuss concerns like guarantors, etc. I can''t recommend Vidal, Claire, and the whole Anchor Associates team enough. I''ve already told friends looking to rent in the city to talk to Vidal. He''s genuinely excited to do this work and is fantastic at it. Working with Vidal was a wonderful welcome to the city, and it was truly a pleasure to have him as our broker. Thank you again, Vidal!

- Jenn David,   September 07, 2016
 
Zack was fantastic to work with from start to finish. He was professional and showed us a diverse bunch of apartments that aligned perfectly with what we were looking for. Zack showed us around 6 apartments, and each one was better than any apartment we had seen with another broker. Zack works to help you find the absolute best apartment within your price range and is great about following up from start to finish. He makes the entire process seamless, organized, and rewarding in the end! We love our new apartment and will be referring him to friends!

- Emily G. on Naked Apartments!,   September 06, 2016
 
As a first time renter, Scott Schiller was a pleasure to work with! After finding an apartment on Streeteasy, I contacted Scott ASAP and he was able to show us the apartment that same night. We loved it, and he guided us through the entire rental process with ease. Thanks Scott!

I recently worked with Jhonatan Ocampo to find an apartment and have SO many great things to say! Jhonatan is amazing at his job. He is punctual, knowledgable and truly the best agent I worked with. He only showed me quality apartments that matched my budget and needs, which was extremely refreshing after working with other agents who did just the opposite. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment in NYC!

- Blair (Yelp),   August 30, 2016
 
Jhonatan Ocampo was my broker. He is hard-working, super friendly and great to work with! -Jhonatan shuffled his scheduled around to make sure he was available on the days we could see apartments. -He took note of our preferences and searched for apartments that met our criteria -He also went above and beyond by meeting us in places that where most convenient for us. For example, one day he went to my office to pick up some documents we needed to complete our application process. I highly recommend Jhonatan!

Working with Ben Willig was a phenomenal experience. The process of buying our first apartment was an extremely daunting one, but Ben was there to help every step of the way. Ben spent countless hours taking us to apartment after apartment, listening to all of our finicky needs and wants, and then tailoring the apartment search to what we were looking for and within our budget. He was very knowledgeable about the industry and about all the different neighborhoods we were looking at, and no question was too big or too small for him. Because of Ben, I found an amazing place, and I couldn''t have gone through the buying process without his help and guidance. Ben is experienced and he knows what he is doing - I would highly recommend working with him!!

Amy Wang helped me find my dream apartment. She has a deep knowledge about the real estate market and knows the buildings in Manhattan very well. She was very professional and personal at the same time. She made understanding the paperwork and real estate jargon so easy, which was a great help especially for a first time home buyer like me. I always felt she was very focused on getting me an apartment I truly like and genuinely cared about my interests. She made the whole buying process so much less stressful. I feel so lucky to have worked with Amy! --- Yelp.com

8/18/2016 Howard of Anchor Associates helped me and my boyfriend find a fantastic apartment, under budget, that met all of our must haves and many of the items on our wish list! What we both appreciated about working with Howard was that he was exceptionally understanding our of concerns, desires, and needs, he never pressured us into a decision, and he was always available when we needed to speak with him. We would recommend Howard and his associates to anyone and everyone, and we will only work with him in the future. Thanks again for your help Howard! Chelsea M.

I worked with Annie Donahey and had an absolutely fantastic experience. Even before we started looking at specific apartments, she helped me get to know the city and find a neighborhood I love by keeping in touch via email and making suggestions for areas to explore. After that, actually finding an apartment seemed surprisingly easy, and during the entire process I really had the feeling that Annie was "on my side", meaning she was just as passionate about finding the right place for me as I was, rather than just trying to find a quick solution. Finally, I was blown away by how helpful she was in actually getting me approved for a lease, and communicating with the landlord. Being a foreign national, this was the the part that I had initially dreaded the most, but once again Annie and her colleagues made the process remarkably easy and comfortable for me. I moved into an amazing apartment 5 days after arriving in New York, and couldn''t be happier.

- Gino K,   August 16, 2016
 
Annie Donahey helped me tremendously!! She listened to my needs and was very understanding. She always kept in contact and I was updated on every little thing that occurred. She is super sweet and was very willing to help me get what I needed and could afford. Her heart is in her job and it shows. I would definitely recommend her to others!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Mick DiStasio. He is absolutely amazing. He went out of his way to accommodate me more than once and is extremely reliable. Even though I had a tiny time frame, he helped me find a beautiful apartment. Not to mention he''s extremely personable and hard working! Thank you so much Mick, I don''t know what I would have done without your help!

Amy Wang from anchor associate helped me purchasing my first home (apartment) in NYC. As a first time buyer, I don''t know much about buying a property in the city. Amy spent time explaining a whole lot details to me, which saved me plenty of time upfront. Amy is really reliable and always there to help. She spent lots of time communicating with mortgage bank and the seller side to smooth the whole process. When really needed, she even helped with my IKEA delivery since we are now neighbors and I was trapped at work. I found Amy very experienced and resourceful; meanwhile, she really knows what she is doing. She is also bilingual: native Chinese and fluent English. If you are thinking about buying or renting an apartment, you should really talk to her.

Kate is your girl! Never having stepped foot in NYC myself, I had no idea where I even wanted to look for apartments. Kate treated me like she would her best friend, and found me exactly what I was looking for in a really ''hip'' area. So thankful!

- Dana R.,   August 08, 2016
 
We worked with an Anchor agent to find our current apartment a few years ago and had a great experience. He''s not there anymore, so we decided to pick someone else from the website this time around. We ended up working with Mick DiStasio and he was fantastic! He really took the time to get to know us and what we wanted. We didn''t look at any apartments that didn''t check off the majority of our boxes. Although we spent the majority of two afternoons searching, it felt efficient, but at the same time, not rushed. Once we had seen all of our options, Mick sat down with us for a drink to talk about which place would be best for us. He had our best interests at heart and wasn''t just worried about the bottom line, and that meant a lot. Bonus: Mick''s "wingspan" is the width of a queen bed, which can be very helpful when trying to get a grasp on a space!

Keida was such a great help with us finding an apartment. She prioritized us even though we were students without a huge budget. She really took the time and listened to our needs in an apartment. Although we didn''t rent from Keida, this was due to complications on our end. Without a doubt, I would recommend Keida to a friend. I will be using her for my next move!

5.0 star rating 8/3/2016 I am not one to write reviews, but I had to write one for John Dugan as he was the best broker to work with. I moved across the country by myself not knowing a single thing about apartments in New York and if it wasn''t for John I would not have the place I am in now. He helped me find my apartment just in one day, he was so helpful, insightful, and the nicest broker you will ever meet. He clearly cares about his clients and wants to make sure they have the best and smoothest experience, because searching for an apartment is never easy, but John made it as easy as it gets. I highly recommend John he will make sure you find your home!

- Nicole E. (yelp),   August 04, 2016
 
My friends and I worked with John Dugan and we couldn''t have been happier with the service he provided. He went above and beyond to make sure we saw the listings we wanted -- even going so far as to meeting us at 8 am so we could all get to work on time. I''ve worked with many brokers before, and I can honestly say that John has been the best.

- Katherine B (Yelp),   July 28, 2016
 
7/23/2016 Howard Hauptman was incredible! We came to him in a crunch, as we needed to find and move into an apartment in a period of four days. After speaking on the phone, he presented us with great options, the first place being our dream spot! He made it happen for us and made a stressful prospect a very smooth transition. We cannot thank him enough and highly recommend Howard and Anchor!

I worked with Mick and he was absolutely great! He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and made my experience very pleasant and easy, which I hear is not typical when looking for apartments in New York City. Overall, Mick was dedicated to finding me exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to use a real estate agent!

John Dugan- Broker of the year! My roommate and I are recent college grads moving to NYC. We were referred to John Dugan who worked diligently with our conflicting schedules and deadline to help us find the perfect home! Before hitting the streets, John spent time finding out exactly what we wanted so that we could use our "hunting" time efficiently. He is a great listener but also a native of New York so his advice was extremely helpful! John sincerely cares about the interests and needs of his clients. Not only did we find an apartment but we had fun while doing so! John is exceptionally knowledgable of the city and knows the best restaurants in town. He went above and beyond to show us the best apartments that fit our criteria. John is personable, hardworking, honest, positive, and relentless! Thank you John! You are the best!!!

I would definitely recommend Anchor Associates to anyone looking to rent an apartment, especially if you''re new to the area. Beginning to end they are incredibly responsive and helpful. Within minutes of my first phone call, I already had an appointment set up for the same week to see five different apartments. I worked with Emily, and she was an invaluable resource in my apartment search. Instead of simply showing me and my brother apartment after apartment, Emily took the time to explain the area and answer any questions that I had as a new renter in NYC. She made an effort to learn our specific situation and take it into account, and built that into a pleasant, low-pressure experience. When we ran into issues getting into one of the apartments, she worked on our behalf to resolve the situation. When we needed to escape the heat for a little bit, we ducked into a store to grab some cold drinks. Gestures like these added up to build a genuine, trustworthy experience. All in all, it was great to have an honest, knowledgable broker on my side, and I''d like to thank Emily and Anchor Associates for an exceptional experience.

Lydia was fantastic. Twice over the past 3 years she found 2 great apartments for my daughter. She had great knowledge of the inventory. She always was more than prepared and had a great positive attitude every time we met. She was extremely knowledgeable regarding all the various neighborhoods we looked at. She knew what we were looking for and made excellent use of our time. Negotiations were handled professionally and skillfully. I would strongly recommend Lydia for anyone looking to rent or buy. She is a delightful person to work with

- John Bedford Lloyd,   July 14, 2016
 
Lydia Mahida is an amazing broker! We had very specific parameters for our search and she quickly found all of the available units in the city meeting them. Since we were renting a condo the application package was a bit involved, and Lydia was very diligent and detail oriented, making sure every i was dotted and t crossed. She continued to follow up and was a strong advocate for us, and even helped us gain access before the lease started to get estimates for contracting work. Lydia answers every text and returns every phone call immediately. She found us the most wonderful apartment, and we are so grateful to her. We definitely recommend her to others and will seek her services again in the future.

- Jennifer H.,   July 14, 2016
 
John Dugan came through for us with flying colors. As a mom concerned for her daughter''s safey, accessibility to her University classes and good neighborhood environment, I made the decision to go with John after conversations with several agents/brokers. Mr. Dugan did not disappoint. I truly believe he put himself in my shoes 100% and sought to find the right apartment within our budget that would make everyone happy. He showed us many places in different neighborhoods so that we could truly see what we were up against. He worked diligently. My family is beyond appreciative of John''s efforts and will encourage anyone seeking a place to live in NYC to look no further than Anchor Associates'' John Dugan. Thank you so much!!!

I met with this broker and was amazed that there was a friendly broker in NYC. I have been looking for an apartment for sometime now and have been through a lot of pushy and unpleasant people seeking housing, but when I met with Jhonathan, he was able to answer all of my questions with ease and made the process easier. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. It can be a headache finding a good apartment in NYC but with the right broker, I was able to find a place.

- Sally Burgos,   July 07, 2016
 
Jhonatan Ocampo was an amazing broker to work with. Not only was he very professional, but he made my fiancé and I feel very comfortable looking around at different units in NYC. I would highly recommend him for any family or friends looking to rent out some apartments. Keep up the great work!

Working with Jhonatan was an excellent experience. Besides working very hard and being very clear and efficient, he is also great to talk to and knows great tips. If you are looking for someone who will get the job done, as well as be fun to work with and talk to, Jhonatan is a great pick. I would definitely work with him again!

Stephanie Kenna was the most professional and efficient broker I have ever worked with. She was diligent in her research and was able to come up with an extensive list of apartments to view based off of our very specific requests that exceeded our expectations. She was positive and made the (potentially daunting process) enjoyable. Stephanie''s level of organization and communication was exceptional--she was extremely honest and helpful throughout the whole process. She was highly professional and really allowed us to explore apartments we initially thought would be out of the realm of possibility. She proved herself bright, capable, and passionate about New York and its real estate. I highly recommend using this agent for your next move!

My partner and I had the pleasure of working with Mick Distasio. Mick went above and beyond to help us find that perfect apartment in a rather limited time frame. He was very upfront, efficient, and willing to go that extra mile to make sure we got what we needed. If you''re ever in need of a hardworking, and personable broker I highly recommend Mick as he made the apartment hunting process in NYC seamless!

Emily Barry was amazing! Our daughters are moving to NYC from the deep south and one of our biggest concerns was finding a realtor that could tolerate our accents and still be patient enough to get the job done. I spoke with the owner of Anchor Associates Group about our concern and he placed us with Emily. Not only was she professional, but she was extremely knowledgeable of the area. House hunting can be extremely stressful, but with Emily''s calm nature and expertise of the area, she was able to show us all the properties we were interested in, plus more, in a short amount of time. I highly recommend this gal! She was GREAT! Thank you Anchor Associates Group for taking such good care of us!

I had the pleasure of working with Brett McDermott to find my new apartment. From the second I met Brett, he was the consummate professional. He quickly understood exactly the type of space I was looking for, and helped me work with the building to make sure everything went as stress-free as possible. Brett is very honest and one of the best brokers I''ve ever worked with. I would certainly recommend Brett, and I had a very positive experience.

I worked with Keida Dizdari who is an absolute power machine in organization and getting things done. She was very responsive to emails, asked very specific questions regarding what i was looking for and was very upfront regarding listenings she found for me. I fell in love with the first apartment i saw and applied soon after. She stayed in touch with me through the entire process and afterwards, making sure that super fixed last minute things at the apartment as well as being very patient with questions i had about the lease and the move-in. I will definitely look her up next time i need to find a place and will recommend her to all of my friends!

Great company to work with. Kate was the best broker I''ve ever used! Definitely recommend.

- Laine Sowell,   June 20, 2016
 
Keida was amazing - she blew me away with how organized she was about every step of the process. She sent me a prep list of documents to have on hand as well as was open up fees and commission. Keida prepared a list of apartments she shared ahead of time with a description for each of my key asks (price - fee/no fee, amenities in the building and location). She was the most prompt agent i have ever worked with, and was on top of everything from application paperwork to last minute apartment fixes. Her communication was very timely also that i never felt that i was in the dark and knew precisely where i was in the rental process. I HIGHLY recommend her to all of my friends and will be reaching out for help in finding my next apartment when the time comes. For someone working in financial services, Keida was the perfect person to work with who is efficient, detail oriented and very effective!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Me and my two roommates worked with Nick Campbell, and he made the experience so much less stressful than we have experienced it in the past. He took us around some places way before our lease date, and told us we could use it just to learn about the market and see what was out there, and for him to get a sense of what we were looking for. He was honest about spots that wouldn''t be worth the trip and wasn''t trying to force anything on us. He was friendly and fun to be around and even treated us to lunch in the neighborhood where we were looking. Before we went back out to search with him we ended up finding a place online through a different company and couldn''t turn it down, but Nick was SO nice about it and seemed genuinely excited about us finding a spot that was a good fit. He even send along a closing packet with deals and contact information. I''m sorry that we didn''t end up finding a place through him!

Yael is the best !! She is the best agent we ever worked with. She is very attentive to customer''s needs , infinite patience, quickly understood and attained our needs , very very professional and supportive . She has supported us via the very long and tiring process of completing the buy of the apartment , always with a smile and excellent advise . And even following the closing , she continued to provide unlimited help and support . If you want to turn the complex process of buying an apartment in the city ,into a pleasant one --don''t look elsewhere--Yael is your ultimate agent

Ask for John Dugan -getting this broker from Anchor was one of the best invenstments I ever made..Had a seriously tight budget for Nyc but he put work into making my new lease a catch with its price and location..these leasing managers and landlords see hundreds of brokers a week but his people skills and professionalism did justice..cant go wrong

We worked with Jesse and Nick to find an apartment this week and they honestly could not have been better. They took time and careful detail to show us apartments that were exactly what we were looking for. By far the best realtors we have worked with. Wouldn''t go back to anyone else.

How likely are you to recommend Kristy Salama? highly likely We met Kristy in the afternoon for a full day of apartment viewings and had an amazing day! We gave her a firm list of requirements with a very short time notice and she was able to find just what we were looking for! Her personality is energetic, professional, and kind. Kristy really took the stress out of finding a place no matter how crazy NYC apartment searching can be. She has great connections throughout the city and made the experience very positive. I''m so thankful for her and would definitely recommend!

Ben was very responsive and knowledgeable in the sale of our coop. his team clearly understands the market and he arranged several details in the execution prep to get the unit ready to sell.

- Selden M., Zillow.com, 5/17/16,   June 07, 2016
 
Throughout the entire process (which ended up being close to a year-long search), Ben was professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. He took my complete lack of real estate knowledge in stride and answered (honestly and candidly) every dumb question I could come up with. His knowledge of fair pricing, co-op requirements and my personal wish-list saved me precious time in narrowing down apartments that I even wanted to look at in-person. When I fell in love with certain apartments, he was supportive but pointed out specific problems and explained potential points of concern; at no point did I feel any pressure to make an offer that wasn’t perfect. He was engaged, proactive and always available when I reached out. His enthusiasm and positivity kept me in the market even when some initial offers didn’t work out. In a market where great apartments are often sold even before they make it to the first open house, Ben was able to put together a very competitive offer. He kept in constant communication with the selling agent and provided critical advice on improving my offer in the 11th hour that ended up winning the deal. Ben and his team were invaluable in helping me through the co-op board approval process. From the get-go, Ben was great at managing my expectations around timing, documentation and other board requirements. The dream team of Ben and Cortney made putting together the board package seamless and efficient. I was able to simply email them documents and they took care of the rest. Next came the board interview. Ben did a mock interview running through a list of potential questions. Imagine my surprise when the actual interview questions were almost verbatim what Ben had talked me through. As I responded to those questions I was now so well prepared to answer, I couldn’t help but chuckle thinking that the man is clairvoyant! Like an experienced captain, Ben expertly navigated me over the uncharted (and sometimes turbulent) seas of Manhattan real estate. His passion, integrity and operational efficiency made him an absolute pleasure to work with. I recommend him unreservedly and wholeheartedly!

6/1/2016 I worked with Howard Hauptman. My company relocated me to NYC from Dallas and I had to find an apartment ASAP. I arrived on Friday and made appointments to look at 4 apartments that next day. Howard promptly waited for me outside the apartment I wanted to view and he provided me with the best service I could have asked for. He was genuine and really cared about my well-being and was not pushy at all. I loved the apartment and had to move in ASAP. The office was closed due to the Holiday weekend and he submitted, as promised, my application first thing that Tuesday morning and the application was approved within 4 hours. I signed my lease today and can move in tomorrow. It could not have gone any better for me and I was lucky to have found Howard. I highly recommend you to reach out to him!

Highly likely to recommend We met Kristy in the morning and had a full day of apartment hunting in a range of neighborhoods. She showed us a broad array, mostly in areas we were interested in. We found JUST what we wanted and love it! It is all and quickly arranged for move in in a few weeks. She was bright and energetic and very easy to be with.

John Dugan is truly a gem in the world of real estate brokers! He listens, he is kind and genuine. Best of all he is not pushy and wants the best best for his clients! He is responsive both with email and phone calls....highly recommend!

- Vicki W. (yelp),   May 31, 2016
 
John Dugan is one of the best brokers I''ve ever worked with. The only thing I hate more then moving is brokers BUT John changed all that. He was really honest and upfront which, as I''m sure you know, is rare. I was shocked at the fact that there wasn''t any sketchiness involved. He listened to my preferences and followed thorough without being pushy. John I can''t thank you enough! But one more time for the road....thanks for being so professional and diligent!

I had the great pleasure of working with Emily Barry on my Manhattan apartment search. Emily was extremely dedicated to finding the right apartment for my unique preferences. She truly committed the time to understanding me and my lifestyle, and then she applied her deep knowledge of the NYC market to locate several great options for me to choose from. Emily was kind enough to work around my insane schedule too, which was not easy and hugely appreciated. I would absolutely recommend Emily to those near and dear to me. I was unbelievably grateful for her guidance and vast expertise! Thanks again, Emily!

5/16/2016 I worked with Mark Giordano from Anchor Associates when I was looking to move to a new place in Manhattan. From the very first contact by email, my sense was that Mark went above and beyond to find me exactly the kind of apartment I wanted based on the preferences I listed. I was pretty selective because of previous bad experiences with housing in the city, and the fact that I have a big dog made the search all the more challenging. Mark was very patient and understanding. He arranged private viewings, never rushed me through the process, and never pushed me into making a decision. I felt like I had an ally by my side, not just someone who cared only about his fee. If ever there was a broker who earned his fee--on which he was willing to negotiate--it was this guy.

- Mary W. (yelp),   May 26, 2016
 
Mark Giordano worked with me to find an apartment. He was great - really went above and beyond. Found something in my budget and neighborhood, and personally came to pick up my paperwork from my office since I could not make it to the management office in time. All in all, he is very smart, attentive and friendly and I would highly recommend him/use him again.

I am an expat living in another country, my young daughter was needing a short term lease apartment in NYC for an internship. The overwhelming task to find her a good safe apartment when she didn''t know anyone in NYC was challenging. We tried on the internet on our own for a while but it was just too hard not being right there., not knowing the inside scoop on the ins and outs of renting in NYC. We were so blessed to find Connie Dellas. Connie came through in a big way. She totally sympathized with our situation and took my daughter under her wing and within a very short time was able to have her set up in Manhattan just a few blocks away from her job, in a safe environment. We were not easy customers as being overseas did not always have all the exact paperwork that tenants usually require but she was creative and able to have both parties make the deal. I have called on Connie a few times for assistance and she has always been so helpful and reached out and went the extra mile when she really didn''t need to. I really appreciated her time and consideration when dealing with me especially being so nervous about my daughter being in NYC for the first time...since that time my daughter is now a NYC expert. If you need someone who is attentive, knows the area and is a great person to have in your corner, Connie is the best!

How likely are you to recommend Kristy Salama? highly likely Summary of their experience We were looking for a rental apartment for our newly graduated sons and were warned about brokers but Kristy instantly dispelled any concerns immediately. She is responsive and guided us through a range of sizes in a variety of neighborhoods but it took only a few hours to find the perfect first apartment. She listens well, is smart and she is hungry. Most of all she''s obviously got a big heart and we easily recommend her without reserve.

I really appreciate the values he represents, him and his firm. He knows what he is doing and will do his best to help you without doubt. Definitely one of the best brokers i dealt with for rentals.

While looking to rent an apartment through Anchor Associates, we worked with Emily Barry. She was on the ball EVERY step of the way. We had a really seamless experience with her helping us find exactly what we were looking for in an apartment, and we had very specific criteria (elevator, near a subway, on the UWS, under $3200, etc) so we were happy she could deliver us a lot of options that we could consider. She took our calls and texts and was very attentive. 10/10 will use Anchor Associates again when looking to rent/buy.

- Wendy D.,   May 14, 2016
 
Emily Barry helped us find our dream apartment. We dreamed about living on the Upper West Side but never thought it would be in our budget. Not only did she give us many incredible options, but she found an apartment that was in our budget and exceeded our expectations in every way. She was incredible every step of the way and gave us valuable advice during the negotiation process. Because of her advice we were first in line for our apartment. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to live in New York City, she truly cares about her clients getting the absolute best.

- Mary B.,   May 14, 2016
 
We worked with Emily Barry, who was super refreshing- she has a great chill vibe while also being very knowledgable. She broke down a lot of the common real estate and NYC lingo for us (thanks to her we realized we were not looking for a railroad, wing or a convertible flex!) She made sure she knew exactly what we wanted. Emily has a great balance of being professional while also incredibly personable- she was honest and highlighted what was important without ever being pushy. Getting in our paperwork she was very helpful every step of the way. Would definitely recommend Emily and Anchor!

Kristy was so wonderful to work with when apartment hunting in New York can be pretty brutal. She really listened to the things we were looking for in a place and focused on finding us apartments that we would really love. She found us a lot of really great ones that made the decision difficult but in the best way! We are very happy in the place we selected and are so grateful to have had Kristy to help us find a new place to call home.

Kristy is a wonderful person and an absolute professional, she understood our needs and worked relentlessly around the clock to find us an apartment within a fixed budget. She started at one end of Manhattan to the other, in one weekend she found us a fabulous apartment in a fantastic neighborhood within our budget. I have already referred Kristy to a friend of mine and will continue to refer her to people I know because I''m sure they will receive the same treatment as we did.

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Jesse Lerner. I recently moved to New York City from the Philadelphia suburbs. Jesse made me feel comfortable in this overwhelming city. I could not have gone through this process without him. He worked day and night to make sure I found an apartment that was in my price range and in a neighborhood that I loved. I certainly feel like Jesse is more than a real estate agent. He became a friend.

Ben was great to work with. He guided me through the buying process from start to finish and answered all of my questions. Ben is very knowledgeable of the real estate market and NYC neighborhoods. I would recommend him without hesitation.

- Richard H. Zillow.com 4/12/16,   April 28, 2016
 
I was referred to Ben from multiple friends who had worked with him during their apartment search process. He was highly recommended due to his skill, knowledge, professionalism and ability to execute and deliver. My experience working with him has been nothing less than perfection. I had searched on my own for months before I had my first meeting with Ben. I thought I had a good knowledge of the real estate market, but boy did Ben open my eyes to so many things I could not have known on my own. During this first meeting, Ben listened attentively to all my ideas and preferences and gave me his honest viewpoint and opinion of what I should expect during this search process. He took the time to explain many things about the real estate market and process that I had no knowledge of previously. He did not rush the meeting and instead offered to explain and walk through things as long as I needed to get comfort and feel prepared. I sincerely appreciated how thoughtful and patient he was from the get-go. I was under a rushed process as I had to move out of the rental apartment, and Ben worked closely with me and stayed on top of my process. During the entire search process, he was always available, full of energy and accommodating. He dedicated countless hours sending me listings online, viewing properties in person together, and discussing ideas over email. Ben''s skills became even more apparent to me during the contract negotiation stage. There were two things that stood out to me - 1) his ability to connect with others and create a harmonious environment for both parties to reach a good outcome, and 2) his depth of knowledge which ensures that he won''t miss a beat in representing you as his client. Ben was able to convince the seller to reduce the listed purchase price by over $40k and secure a fast process - I signed the contract within a month after my first meeting with him. That''s an incredible speed and discount in NYC. The rest of the closing process was seamless. He was instrumental in getting my co-op board package together fully and accurately to insure no delays with the closing process. This takes a lot of coordination and a lot of paperwork to go through. Ben has an amazing team that supports him and helped me stay organized and punctual during this process. Because of his meticulousness and professionalism, we stayed on top of the schedule and closed on time. This whole process could have been stressful but instead Ben made it the most fun process ever. I highly recommend him to all my friends without hesitation. Ben - thank you for giving me a place in NYC to call my home.

- Nancy H. Zillow.com 4/13/16,   April 28, 2016
 
I cannot say enough about the superlative attention I received from Ben and his team! I was looking at both sales and rentals for relocation to NYC from Boston, and their knowledge of the neighborhoods, the process, and the details (down to individual buildings!) was phenomenal. We had quite a bit of back and forth in negotiating with sellers, and Ben''s calm, professional demeanor and mastery of all interactions made my final decision (which was to rent for now, and look for a purchase later) absolutely the right one. HIs coordinated work with associate Nick Campbell on the rental front made for a seamless transition to finding the right apartment for me for now. Not only do I trust these guys completely, but I had a blast running around town looking at places with them! Down-to-earth, yet totally savvy. THEY ARE WINNERS!

When I was looking to buy my first home about three years ago I asked Adam for his assistance. I had no idea how much I would come to rely on his judgement. I trusted his opinion with everything from the need for repairs to navigating through the purchase process. Buying your first home is one of the most stressful financial moves you can make. Adam was able to guide me through the process while informing me along the way, reducing my fears and building my confidence. Adam is professional, informed and will always tell you what you need to know. Three years later I am a very satisfied home owner, thanks to Adam. The only thing I regret is not having the opportunity to have him as my agent

Patrick Sullivan was a pleasure to work with. He not only showed me apartments well within my price range in prime Manhattan, but was also generous enough to pay for our taxi all around the city to see places. I would highly recommend Anchor Associates, and please give Patrick my best if you ever get the opportunity of working with him. 04/14/2016

Vidal showed me beautiful apartments and was pleased to tell me everything I needed to know about the surrounding neighborhood and any amenities. He is a pleasure to work with and really set my mind at ease while looking for my future home in NY - and trust me, I''ve had some really, really bad experiences. You can tell when someone has really vetted a place, and when they understand your needs. Looking forward to seeing more with him.

Keida was incredibly helpful. I needed to find an apartment quickly and after reading some positive reviews I contacted her. Within one week she had taken me to 6 or 7 different places, all of which met my needs and fit my price range. At the end of the week I already had the keys to my new apartment. She listened to everything I said and found places that really fit, while also being honest about the pros and cons of each. Whenever anyone I know is looking to rent, I always mention that I know a great broker if they need one.

- S.Ross (Zillow),   April 20, 2016
 
When I was planning to look for a home in NY, Keida was referred to me by a close friend. She is professional, a pleasure to work with and most importantly very informative. Even though I ended up postponing my search for a while, I learned a great deal about the market so when I am ready, I am more comfortable and Keida will definitely be my Broker again in the process. Definitely recommend her!

- Gent L. (Zillow),   April 20, 2016
 
Keida helped us find our first apartment in New York City. My husband and I wanted a place favorable to both of our commutes, with easy access to public transportation, a vibrant neighborhood with great food and entertainment, a large kitchen with modern appliances, etc. She suggested a building in Tribeca which has turned out to be a great fit for us. We did not know about this area, but Keida led us to it and we are glad that we placed our trust in her expertise! When she knows that a particular area is in high demand she jumps on it without delay. Highly recommended.

Zsolt was amazing. He was professional, courteous, and very responsive to our many questions. He also provided advice on completing the board package.

I would definitely contact Zsolt for selling / buying in the future and I highly recommend it.

Adam has been the president of our condo board for years. He volunteered to lead the board to rectify several challenging and outstanding building problems. Under his careful and tireless leadership he has resolved our issues. I give him my highest recommendation. He is detail-oriented, knowledgeable (i.e. developers, codes, etc.), committed, reliable and responsive

- Karen O., Zillow.com,   April 19, 2016
 
Adam Feinberg has helped our condo navigate through a very difficult period which was plagued with financial, legal and logistical difficulty. He worked very hard to help instilling disciplines and building consensus among the owners to restore our building back to health. I highly recommend Mr. Feinberg as a real estate professional.

- Souhon C., Zillow.com,   April 19, 2016
 
Adam has been the president of the condo board in the building in which we live for many years. During that time he has overseen the many structurally complicated, costly repairs that our building community has had to address. He has diligently shouldered this job, bringing his significant financial and real estate knowledge to the task. Adam is a hard worker and an excellent communicator, particularly evident in dealing with many city agencies, building contractors, and a condo community who came to rely on his guidance with increasing confidence and appreciation. I can only imagine that he will bring the same dedication, intelligence and expertise to a real estate buyer. We have been very lucky to have him at the helm during this difficult time.

- Lisa M., Zillow.com,   April 19, 2016
 
Adam was the building president at a condo I own in Washington Heights. He was highly trusted in the role, based on his concern for the building, careful attention to detail, and comprehensive knowledge of the legal matters facing the owners. He moved to the area some years before myself, and has an enthusiasm for the area - he's always happy to discuss the evolution of the neighborhood, based on the Columbia expansion, arrival of new restaurants, etc. I'm happy to recommend Adam

- Hewitt P., Zillow.com,   April 19, 2016
 
I've known Adam for a number of years in the capacity of him being the president of a condo association. In that time it has become evident that his knowledge of the local market and attention to detail in legal matters regarding condo ownership and NY city rules and regulations are unsurpassed. Adam supervised and managed a number of large projects for the building in question so has a very good idea of what to look for and who to go to regarding building and construction quality. Adam also managed the finances and accounting for the building so has in depth knowledge of what to look for when ascertaining the financials of a property and is a trustworthy and honest person.

- Steven A., Zillow.com,   April 19, 2016
 
Adam is the president of my condo board and has done an impressive job of juggling several highly complex projects over the past couple of years. He always responds to my inquiries within a day with very thorough explanations.

I had a great experience working with Mick DiStasio - he was very friendly and helpful with my apartment search and showed me a lot of nice places. He was patient with my long "wish list" and did his best to find options that would work. He''s really responsive as well, always keeping me in the loop about new listings and answering my questions. Unfortunately I haven''t found the right apartment yet and may put the search on hold for a while, but I would definitely work with Mick again in the future.

My roommate and I are not from the area, so we didn''t quite know what to expect at the beginning of our apartment hunt. We worked with Jesse Lerner, and he is a fantastic broker. He is very attentive, responsive, and hard working. Most importantly, he was the most honest broker we met with (out of half a dozen or so). I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a place in NYC.

I had a great experience with Amy Wang when purchasing my first home in NYC. Amy clearly has profound knowledge about the real estate market and a lot of experience with foreign buyers. We did our research before coming to the city and Amy provided us her insightful knowledge of local market. Amy communicated with us frequently in the whole process and we felt very comfortable and totally agreed with her opinions, suggestions and strategies. We saw Amy''s effort and really appreciated it. I want to recommend Amy to all home buyers here. -- yelp review

Natalia was the most helpful, caring, and honest broker I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. She went above and beyond to show us each and every apartment that she believed fit our wants and needs. She was well organized and helped walk us through every step of the way! If I ever need to find another apartment, Natalia will be the first person I call!

- Alyssa Nejaime,   March 31, 2016
 
I had the pleasure of working Jesse Lerner during my recent apartment search in the West Village. He was the ultimate professional! Jesse went out of his way to learn what I was looking for and to find as many apartments as possible for me to see. Even apartments that were not listed on Streeteasy. He was a pleasant, no pressure kind of person with excellent follow-up. The time walking between apartments was actually enjoyable rather than the awkwardness I''ve experienced with other Realtors. I would recommend Jesse to anyone that is beginning the search for a new home!

I worked with Mick DiStasio during a recent apartment hunt. Although I didn''t end up finding my apartment through Mick I would recommend him as a broker. He was helpful, courteous, and didn''t waste my time dragging me to places outside my price range or desired location

This review relates to Nancy Elton of whom I had the great pleasure of working with. I have just relocated from the UK and can not recommend Nancy highly enough for the insight she offered me as to how the rental market works in the US. Not only that, as a native New Yorker she gave me lots of information about the city which only a local would know! She proved to be honest, reliable and hard working - arranging a number of quality apartments for me to view with very short notice. It is clear she knows the market very well and was keen to understand me as the Client and then tailor the viewings accordingly to my taste and requirements so as not to waste time. I can''t thank Nancy enough and will be recommending her to any friends or colleagues who are looking for a broker in the future. I will definitely use her again.

I worked with Zack Haluszczak on a lease reassignment. Zack made this entire process stress free and took care of advertising the apt and showing it to possible tenants. I was able to get out of my 24 month lease quickly without paying the hefty fee originally requested by the landlord. I would recommend Zack to anyone looking to rent or deal with a lease reassignment. He is kind, courteous and easy to be around... and punctual!!!

I had an opportunity to work with Ozzie and he was an great partner who showed me a large number of units that were all in my price range and fit my criteria. Three things stood out from my experience with Ozzie. 1) Every apartment he showed me was of high quality, there were no duds. 2) He had relationships with most of the building attendants, there was no unnecessary waiting to see places. 3) He tailored our visits to my schedule and had a very efficient plan which allowed us to see about 15 apartments from 56th and Lex all the way to 34th and 1st without any backtracking and without taking up the whole day. He was also very friendly and easy to work with, didn''t try to sell too hard if the space wasn''t right for me, and adjusted the viewings on the fly based on my feedback. Great experience.

These guys are really great. We worked with Nick Campbell, who was friendly and attentive. Usually with brokers I feel like they are just trying to move properties, but Nick was genuinely concerned with helping us find a place we were happy with and he put a lot of work into it. Definitely would use them again.

- Jamie S. Yelp.com 3/16/16,   March 17, 2016
 
We worked with Nick Campbell who was recommended to my roommate and I so we gave him a call. Within 24 hours, he had a list of places to show us over the weekend that were exactly in our budget and in our desired location. He spent a good chuck of his Saturday showing us different properties in the city. Nick was not pushy and didn''t pressure us once. Nick knew a lot about the apartments he was showing us and was incredibly helpful. Once we found the apartment we wanted, he broke down the process step by step and couldn''t have made it any easier. I would recommend working with Nick to anybody and I will definitely go through him to find my next place, as well. Nick kept it real.

I worked with Jesse Lerner - he was so unbelievably great. I called Anchor on a Thursday afternoon, spoke with Jesse, told him what I was looking for and on Friday he showed us 5 apartments. One of which, is the apartment we got! There were complications on my end with some credit issues and he was so patient and helped us through it all. It was truly such a pleasure working with him. Would highly recommend him!!

Monica was fantastic. I was moving from out of state, and after sending out several feelers, most brokers ignored me as I was not in the area. Monica helped vet the different listings that I found online, and compiled a very detailed list when I arrived to view apartments. The entire process was painless, and from what I have heard about NYC moves, this is saying something. I highly recommend Monica Jey as she was extremely professional and we were able to secure an apartment in one day.

My roommate and I had an awesome experience working with anchor Associates. Our broker, Jesse Lerner, was extremely motivated and dedicated to helping us find the apartment of our dreams in Manhattan. Jesse always got back to us in a timely, organized and professional manner whenever we had questions or concerns about properties we visited. He showed us great apartment potentials that really pinpointed the areas of the city that we loved and the type of apartment we could see ourselves living in. Once we found the apartment we wanted, Jesse acted quickly and saw the entire application process through. My roommate and I are excited to move in and really happy that we chose to work with Anchor Associates for our first NYC apartment!!

I had a wonderful experience working with Ben as he guided me through my first personal real estate transaction. Ben was recommended to me by a close friend, and I myself have already recommended him to another friend and will absolutely continue to do so in the future. Ben is very knowledgeable and always willing to answer every question I had. I learned this from the very first phone call I shared with him which lasted almost three hours on a Friday evening. Off the bat, this told me that as a serious buyer, I would get the benefit of a very serious broker. Rather than brush me off or give very surface-level explanations as I found some brokers to do, Ben dove into the details and rationalized the answers to my questions. This conversation gave us a very solid foundation to work with to start off our relationship. Finding the right place was quite the journey, but Ben makes a great effort to make this as seamless as possible. After a couple conversations and reviewing listings together online, we were off to our first go-around viewing several apartments in just one day. Ben set up all the logistics to make sure we could view all of them one after another with enough time. If he had to drop off briefly for an important appointment, he would make sure another member of his (very friendly) team was available to be there and assist, to ensure that we were always in good hands no matter what. I recognized these as non-trivial time commitments and appreciated it greatly. As I saw more apartments and discussed with him my reactions to different places and my requirements, there was no feeling of pressure from his side. His desire is simply to understand what you want so that you can find what you want. After I finally decided on the apartment, Ben helped me navigate the twists and turns that make up the process of actually closing on Manhattan real estate. There were several complications that came up from the seller side, but Ben made sure to advocate for my needs, keep me informed, and respond to my consistent inquiries. Throughout the closing process, he proved to be incredibly patient and understanding. Probably the most important thing I would want you to take away from my review is that I believe Ben to be a very trustworthy and genuine person. When you''re making one of the biggest transactions of your life, you need to have the confidence that this trust enables you to have.

Ozzie was extremely helpful in our search for our first apartment in NYC. He was willing to meet and show us apartments after business hours, which was really helpful, since we both work during the day throughout the week. He also always answered any texts or emails we sent right away, answering all of our last minute questions. Anything he didn't know about an apartment, he contacted the management company right away and would get back to us very quickly. He made sure to take the time and understand what was important to us in our search for a "home," and found a place that he thought we would really love. He even went so far as to go to the apartment on his own time and take a video of the place for us to see, so we could get a sense of the place before we saw it ourselves. Ozzie is professional and gives you his honest opinion whenever you ask. He also never came off as pushy, and honestly wants to find you your perfect place. Even after we found our place, he made sure to check in with us to make sure everything went smoothly. We really appreciated his help in finding our first place and would recommend him as an agent for anyone looking for a place in NYC.

When I started looking at apartments last year, I was not going to go for a broker, but I met Keida, had her show me several apartments, and eventually ended up finding an apartment through her. She is very professional and courteous, and really tries to match your expectations to what''s out there. I highly recommend her, even to those skeptical about brokers.

My girlfriend and myself were moving into NYC on A short timetable and Matthew Wood took unbelievable care of us. Not only did he take all of our requests into consideration but set up a great variety of places over a two day span to make sure we found what we needed... He was professional and friendly and a pleasure to work with. I would gladly recommend him and Anchor Associates to any friends coming from out of town or looking for a new place in the city!! Thanks Matt!"

I am here to recommend Amy Wang from Anchor Associates. She found me a rental apartment in Manhattan one year ago and helped me purchasing my first apartment midtown east recently. Amy was very professional, efficient and friendly broker. She helped with my rental, purchasing and interior design. She is really a resourceful and one of the best broker I ever met. I have been recommending Amy to all my friends who need an apartment. ---Yelp

Zack was absolutely phenomenal! He was incredibly knowledgable about not only the neighborhoods he showed, but also, the individual buildings themselves. His patience with me as a first time NYC real estate shopper was greatly appreciated. I never felt rushed into making a decision and he went above and beyond to make sure that I was comforable with my choice and the whole process. Thanks, Zack!

I had the pleasure of working with Emily Barry at Anchor Associates. Of all the estate brokers I have worked with (and I have moved three times in the NYC area in the past three years), Ms. Barry was by far the most organized. She took the time to really understand my needs. When we went and looked at units, not only were they appropriate and appealing, but she optimized the schedule so that we went fluidly from one viewing to the next. She was kind and courteous, attentive and compassionate. I heartily recommend Emily Barry to any prospective renters.

I highly recommend Nitza Christenberry as an agent. She was fantastic. My son recently moved to NY, wanted Manhattan, searched on his own but the task was too confusing and daunting. We contacted several realtors/property managers and got the runaround until we found Nitza. While the others were rude, not willing to listen and help, used really high pressure tactics, etc, we found Nitza to be the exact opposite. Honest and kind, listened to what my son was looking for and found a nice apt after taking her time to research and meet with him and show him around, versus him just wandering all over NY. She was fantastic and went above and beyond. Call Nitza.

This was my first time apartment hunting in NYC and despite hearing from others what a nightmare experience is could be Nick made it super fun and enjoyable! He planned a route taking in about 10-12 properties all of which met my criteria and was extremely helpful in guiding me through the US/NYC rental processes, etc. I didn''t actually go with one if the properties he showed me in the end but he still sent through a pack of useful contacts / information etc for renting a new apartment. Can''t rate the service highly enough and will certainly use again on my next move! All the best!

I was referred to Anchor through a friend, and I definitely owe him big time for helping me find them! Nick Campbell helped me find an apartment for my company, and the whole deal was sealed within two weeks of first contacting Anchor. Prior to working with Nick, I had searched for about two months for a landlord that would be open to corporate leases to no avail - many landlords in Manhattan are not open to corporate leasing for residences because of the citywide crack down on Airbnbs. He found me an apartment on the first day of our search that was exactly what I had hoped for - perfect size, great amenities, doorman, and the landlord was willing to start a relationship with my company. The application process had a lot more moving parts than a regular lease, but it still took a fraction of the time that I had expected. Nick was able to navigate the challenges of the corporate lease agreement with ease, and was very communicative throughout the process so we all knew what was needed and what the expectations were at every step. Thank you, Nick!!

Mick was such a huge help when it came to finding an apartment that suited our needs. He called to ensure he knew exactly what we were looking for and was extremely accommodating and flexible when it came to scheduling viewing times. Unlike other agents we had dealt with, we felt that Mick was genuinely there to help us, we never felt pushed around or pressured and truly felt he had our best interests at heart. I would definitely recommend him in assisting with your apartment hunt!

I worked with Patrick Sullivan and he was friendly, helpful and felt like he was being honest with me not just trying to sell me on an apartment. He found me listings that we''re even on other websites yet and found listings that were what I asked for, not just what he was trying to sell. I totally recommend Patrick and had a great experience working with him.

- John B.- Yelp 2/18/16,   February 18, 2016
 
I worked with John Coleman out of the Chelsea office. John helped me find an apartment in Williamsburg and it was a great experience working with a broker for the first time: I contacted Anchor about two months ahead of a 6 month move to NYC for work. John was assigned and we discussed my needs. The week of a trip to NYC to review apartments, John called me to schedule time together. He had several apartments that fit my requirements. He kept connected up until our scheduled time. John was absolutely clear and helpful as we reviewed several apartments that met my needs. Once I chose an apartment, John was incredibly helpful as we went through the application and approval process. Being in Los Angeles, it wasn't always easy because of the different pieces of paperwork/ certified checks needed but John always made it clear why anything was required and he was always available to hear any of my concerns. Having never negotiated an apartment from such a distance, I had some moments of fear, worried I was sending off money to never be seen again! But John was a great and calming presence bringing me back to reality. Eventually, I was approved by the condo board where I'm staying and I couldn't be more thrilled. I am sure that part of the reason it worked out is that John displayed the same clarity and conscientious attitude with the renting parties as he did with me.

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Mick. He is by far one of the best (and nicest!) brokers out there (and believe us, we have moved A LOT and had numerous experience working with various brokers in the city). We cannot say enough positive and wonderful things about Mick. He is truly a professional - kind, courteous, helpful, and not to mention extremely patient. He went above and beyond to help us find an apartment. We appreciated his willingness to go out of his way to send us new and updated listings, schedule viewings that accommodated our crazy schedules, follow up and take the time to really listen to what we were looking for throughout the process. Some brokers are just not as in-tune to what their clients want in terms of specific criteria in an apt. Mick, on the otherhand, just got it. He understood, was very supportive and helped us from beginning to end. THANK YOU MICK for all of your time, energy and effort in assisting us and turning what could have potentially been extraordinarily stressful and exhausting into a fun and positive experience! Keep up the fabulous work!

Ben was a pleasure to work with and helped me to find the perfect home in my dream location in Manhattan. As a first time home buyer, I was anxious about the process. Ben helped tremendously to alleviate those concerns and was extremely responsive to all of my inquiries and pushed for a slightly aggressive closing date to accommodate my hectic work travel schedule. He really held my hand throughout the entire experience and went above and beyond more times than I can count. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to buy/sell an apartment in the city.

I have had the delightful privilege to work with Ben in buying our first apartment in Manhattan. He was introduced to me with great reviews by a close college friend of mine as a very capable, reliable and personable broker - and he was really all of those traits and beyond. He himself grew up in the area and personally invests in properties in Manhattan, therefore knows a ton about the market. Given his transaction experience he is also great at managing tough processes that will undoubtedly come up in any real estate transaction in Manhattan. What I appreciate the most is his honest advice in any situations. Ben will lay out the key considerations ahead of any decisions you need to make and really allow you to make the call.

I had such a great experience with Anchor Associates and specifically my broker, Jesse Lerner. Throughout our entire search for a NYC apartment, Jesse was very professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. He took every question I had and really took the time to answer them fully and professionally (and timely). At no point did Jesse make me feel pressured to settle on any listings, and he was extremely patient with us. He found us a perfect apartment that I will now be calling home!

Worked with Nick Campbell in January 2016. Was looking for a Feb 1 lease and he was straight up amazing! I was working with a bunch of different brokers at the time but Nick was by far my favorite to work with. He stood out from the rest as the best/most trustworthy/most knowledgeable broker. Nick really took the time to get to know me and understand why I wanted to move and what I was looking for in my new place. I told him I wanted an upgrade in quality that wouldn''t break my $2K budget and he delivered. Nick never showed me or tried to sell me on places that cost more than I was willing to spend which is something other brokers do that is SO annoying. He also would send me videos and pictures of prospective apartments so that I could decide if they were worthy of an actual visit. Not only was Nick always communicating with me, but he was available to show me apartments whenever it was most convenient for me. He really respected my time which I appreciate. Anchor Associates has a solid inventory of great listings and would definitely use them again. Thanks Nick for going above and beyond!

If you want a very professional and thoughtful realtor, work with Patrick Sullivan. He is knowledgeable, follows up on every detail and is excellent at showing a wide variety of properties to understand what you really want and need. This was a relocation back to NY with a condensed time line and urgency to find an apt. And I had to admit, things had changed since the last time I lived in NYC and I needed the guidance. He knew about the neighborhoods, transportation options in each and was as dedicated to finding the right apt as I was. There was no pressure (even after looking at 10 properties) and he was very focused on making the hunt a positive and personal experience. This was the best real estate experience I have ever had in NYC. In fact, when it comes time to buy next year, he would be the only person I would work with.

Definitely hire Patrick Sullivan at Anchor Associates! You will not be disappointed, I promise. I was very happy with my experience and highly recommend them. Why? Read below :) I recently relocated to New York from San Francisco and had no idea what to expect in this rental market, not so much in terms of price (we know both cities are insanely expensive), more with regards to finding a broker - a good broker! While I had the luxury of browsing neighborhoods and apartments for a couple months, I could not find a decent broker for the life of me! I came across so many bad brokers who were misleading and didn't seem to care much about what was important to me. Then I met Patrick Sullivan at Anchor Associates who were AMAZING! I really enjoyed working with both of them. Patrick is very personable and highly considerate, and most importantly, he was extremely patient with me (I'm picky and I can be indecisive) and very understanding of my needs (I am always very careful about what personal information is disclosed and how it's handled, and I wanted to perfect balance of what was important to me in an apartment). I was so, so appreciative! Being in a client services role myself professionally, I have high expectations for and am an advocate of exceptional service. There was no lapse whatsoever in assistance and responsiveness (at any time of day)! I was very pleased and would absolutely use them again, so I highly recommend working with Anchor Associates, specifically Patrick! Though I never had the chance to meet their colleague, I also have to credit Art Jalandoni who I know Patrick was frequently in touch with and helped us seal the deal on my lovely apartment in West Village! Talk about TEAM PLAYERS and consummate professionals who truly really take pride in their work, for their clients as well as their business partnerships (like building management companies). THANK YOU to Patrick and Art as well as Anchor Associates!

This review is for Belinda Cruz from Anchor. Belinda was absolutely amazing and wonderful. She was extremely helpful with finding us exactly what we wanted and answering all of our questions. We are new in town and were quite clueless on the whole process and Belinda helped guide us through it with a great amount of patience. I would highly recommend Belinda to anyone looking to find the perfect place for themselves

I met with Christian O. Mendez, Christian is wonderful agent! He is very patient and understanding. Christian will take the time to go over all of your needs and he will make you feel as though you are his only client! Christian is one of the most honest agents I have come across, I would recommend him to anyone! What I liked about Christian is he does not put unnecessary pressure but makes the whole process feel very comfortable. Definitely use Christian as your next agent!

Howard has been helping to rent the properties I manage for over 4 years. He is an absolute joy to work with, and always makes my job much easier by bringing good, qualified candidates in to apply for the rentals. He has an upbeat and cheery but also very professional demeanor and is very trustworthy. I highly recommend him to any client searching for their dream apartment!! "

1/26/2016 Howard Hauptman from Anchor is a diamond in the rough world of New York City real estate!! Anyone who has lived in this city knows that root canals and running a marathon are easier than finding an apartment. Not only is inventory sparse but the brokers who show them are forceful, disinterested, and unresponsive. This winter my boyfriend and I had the pleasure of working with Howard to find a new apartment in our neighborhood on the Upper East Side. From our first interactions, we knew he was different. He listened, responded, and only showed us apartments he would approve of for his own family. Howard took the time to find out what we wanted and only showed apartments that fell within our difficult criteria. When our search needed to be put on hold temporarily, he understood. Howard then proactively reached out to us! It was not to swindle us in to a cramped walk-up, but to assist in finding us a home!! He knew what we wanted and through his vast connections had apartments to fit our needs!! During the entire process Howard went above and beyond the call of duty. He continually updated us, assisted with the application, and even offered to drop off our deposits!! Our deal wasn''t sealed with a signing, but a hug. Howard is a true gentleman and the definition of caring. If you need a home, your first (and only) call should be to Howard Hauptman.

My roommate and I worked with Jesse about a month ago to find an apartment after moving from Florida. Jesse was incredibly approachable and friendly, which was the first thing we noticed. When we first met with him, he had a list of 10 places to check out in our area, which more than impressed us for a first meeting and visit of the area. He pointed us in the direction of several popular areas and important neighborhood features, in addition to finding us the apartment we currently occupy. Working with Jesse was a great experience!

We worked with Mick this past week from Anchor Associates to find our new apartment. I can''t say enough about how helpful he was and how smooth the process was. We started off with several other brokers which was confusing, overwhelming, and we felt we didn''t know how to make our wants come across for the apartment search. I read reviews about Anchor Associates and decided to call them. My husband and I were impressed at how Mick really listened to what we were looking for, followed through on our wishes, and was upfront and honest with us. He compiled a list of apartments for us to see in one day, knowing time was tight for us, and each apartment fit what we had asked for. We found our apartment in one day of searching and applied right away. He helped through the entire application process, was quick in his responses to us, and kept us informed throughout the process. We were approved and signed the lease within one day. I am so thankful we found this group- it was such a good experience. Having moved around the city several times, I was dreading the process of looking for an apartment, and Mick really changed that for us. Highly recommend them and will use in the future!

My daughter and I were in New York for only a short time to secure an apartment for her. I contacted several agents, including Oswald Perez, to inquire about properties they were promoting or listing. Some of the agents contacted were helpful, but many were either unresponsive or were not listening at all to what we were looking for. Ozzy listened to what we were looking for and was very responsive with communications, both by email and text. Once we decided to go with an apartment he showed us, he was very good at getting everything done in the process. I found Ozzy to be honest, and he provided assistance to us in a professional manner that was attentive to what we were looking for. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment in Manhattan.

Work with Emily! She was incredibly thoughtful and diligent helping me find the perfect apartment. Constantly sent listings that fit exactly what I was looking for and was refreshingly honest compared to so many other brokers out there. Even after a few didn''t work out, she kept me in mind for new places that came on the market. An incredibly hard worker on your side in what can be an exhausting process. Thanks again!

Ozzy was a pro from the get-go! We worked with him to initially identify an apartment that was the right size and price for my wife and I, and was more than willing to show us the apartments and coordinate with the ownership when we had questions to make it all happen. He was also quick to follow up with us during our signage phase, and was very very friendly, knowledgeable and willing to be our crutch (as we hadn''t been through this for a while!!). I highly recommend Ozzy for your leasing & buying needs so you can find the right new home for you.

Patrick Sullivan is your man! Very much on top of things, very efficient and straight to the point. He understood exactly what my needs where and thanks to him I found my new apt and put down an application in less than a 2 hours of apt viewing. He is also very nice and makes the whole search process fun!

This was the second time that I''ve worked with Howard H. at Anchor, which speaks volumes about his professionalism, dedication, and commitment to his clients. Howard will stop at nothing to find you the perfect apartment, and is extremely well connected in the real estate industry. Howard years of experience prove invaluable when it comes to closing a deal. He has built a solid rapport with several different management companies, landlords, and property owners in New York, and truly knows the ins and outs of each building. Whether you need advice on furniture layout, a lesson in building fees, or a recommendation for the best neighborhood pizza, Howard''s work ethic and determination for client satisfaction are second to none. We will definitely use Howard again for our next apartment! Thank you for your help, Howard - we love the new digs!

Belinda is dedicated, professional, charismatic and on your side. Just what you want in the frenetic New York market. I appreciated her insight, efficiency and delivery - we got the place, and it felt right. Hail good teamwork and thank you to Belinda.

I highly recommend Jeff as an agent. He was incredibly professional, polite and responsive to my my specific apartment needs. Unlike a lot of other agents, he wasn''t overly pushy or aggressive. He really listened to my budget and preferences and went above and beyond to try to help me find the right place!

Natalia is great! My sister and I were looking for our very first apartment and we really didn’t know what to expect. When I contacted Natalia she was very thorough in explaining the process of looking for/applying for an apartment in NYC. We also had a very tight budget but Natalia made sure not to show us anything we couldn’t afford. She was kind and honest about what we would be able to find and what neighborhood would suit us best. She also had great communication and always replied to our questions and concerns right away. We had a very limited amount of time to find an apartment, but Natalia worked hard within our timeline and never made us feel rushed into any decisions. We found an apartment just 2 days after we began working with Natalia, and we were signing the lease a couple business days later. I really don’t think we could have found in apartment with our tight budget and limited time frame without Natalia. I would definitely work with her again and recommend her to anyone looking for a place in New York.

- Emily,   December 15, 2015
 
I worked with Emily in my apartment search - she was a pleasure to work with. She was extremely helpful in the process and even though I didn''t rent through her, she continued to offer up help and guidance. Very professional and would recommend using her and Anchor Associates.

Mick Distasio helped us locate an apartment in NYC for our daughter to lease while attending college. He was very professional and well educated about both the local market and the requirements we had. He listened carefully and found us several properties that were perfectly suited to our needs and budget. He was willing to view one property multiple times and we were able to quickly secure the exact unit we desired thanks to his expertise. I would highly recommend Mick to anyone seeking assistance in the NYC area.

I worked with Jesse Lerner while searching for my first apartment in NYC. I was looking for an affordable place with great amenities in a safe neighborhood. Jesse showed me numerous options that fit both my needs and expectations. Much different than most sales people I have worked with in the past, Jesse tried to find what I was looking for instead of selling me something to benefit him. I really appreciated how straight-forward and honest he was throughout the process, making the experience easy and enjoyable. He was incredibly organized with the search, helping me find an apartment within a week of starting the process. He is also incredibly friendly and fun to be around, creating a positive experience that felt more like two friends hanging than business. I loved Jesse as a broker and would definitely recommend him to anyone interested in finding a NYC apartment.

- Sharen R. Yelp.com 12/1/15,   December 01, 2015
 
Definitely work with Mick. He takes the time to find out what exactly you''re looking for, caters your viewings to the best of his ability, and is super flexible/responsive throughout the process. You also don''t leave the viewings feeling pushed around - a rarity in NYC real estate. In terms of Anchor, be prepared for an introductory call - they want to chat with you directly about your needs rather than over email.

Ben goes way beyond the traditional function of a real estate agent. His enthusiasm and expertise made him a trusted real estate advisor for me, often drawing on his own personal experiences in the New York City real estate market to educate me and inform my decisions. I have worked with Ben on many occasions, but most recently on my acquisition of an apartment in Manhattan. Before I had even decided to buy, Ben scheduled time with me to share valuable insights and considerations before entering the market. From that conversation to the day I obtained my accepted offer was just about 6 weeks. During those 6 weeks, Ben worked tirelessly and we saw over 60 units! During the search, Ben was attentive to my feedback, carefully curating listings to align with my evolving views on what was important for my home. After 3-4 weeks, Ben effectively knew what I wanted better than I did; on one Sunday, I saw 3 consecutive listings that satisfied all my top criteria and ended up putting in offers on each! And his dedication to the process did not end once I had my accepted offer. He was critical in project managing the entire process from that initial conversation, through closing and even extending himself to assist me in other questions that I continue to have such as homeowners insurance and renovations. He was adept at dealing with management companies, selling brokers, bankers, lawyers and all the other key stakeholders in the process. He was also highly responsive and available at all times to answer questions or provide updates. Any market participant, whether novice or experienced, will be at a significant advantage with Ben as an advocate.

My boyfriend and I had a pretty extensive wish list for our "dream home" in the heart of the west village..private outdoor space, newly renovated and approved for 3 dogs., which David Alcalde was somehow able to deliver on the very first apartment we saw! Never before have we had such a wonderful experience working with a broker in NYC. David was a class act from beginning to end - accomodating our schedules for paperwork signing, coordinating with the building for measurments and flexible move-in timing ...he even offered to help with our move and sent a special surprise for our pups! David is the best! We couldn''t be happier with our new home and highly recommend him if you are looking for a professional, genuine broker. Thank you David!

- Margaret M. via Yelp,   November 18, 2015
 
I highly recommend Dave Alcalde, who is professional, responsible, honest and easygoing. He is willing to do extra work for the client''s best interest, such as bargaining with the landlord and finding nearby parking/dining options. It was a very enjoyable experience working with Dave. I rarely post reviews and don''t even have a yelp account before. But I feel that I need to do this for his great service. Dave is definitely the broker that I will go to and refer to my friends in the future.

Zack is definitely the most reliable, wise and honest broker we've ever worked with, a true real estate baron and a wonderful, easy-going person. Zack knows everything about Manhattan and its neighborhoods. He was very attentive to our needs and by far exceeded our expectations. With Zack's help just in two days we've managed to find an ideal apartment for our young family and the next day we moved in there. Zack supported us throughout the whole cycle starting from the neighborhood choice to the assistance with paperwork and apartment management approval process. I will definitely recommend anyone who is looking for an apartment not to waste their time trying to find an apartment themselves or working with rude and unreliable brokers. Zack is great! Feel free to get in touch with me by email (stan.bulko@gmail.com) and I'll tell you more. Konstantin T.

LIFESAVER!!! I was working with Christian Mendez and he is super amaze!!! I contacted him over the weekend when i was in an apartment hunting bind, and he contacted me right away! Within the same day we were already looking at places!! Hes so sweet, i instantly felt like he was my best friend. I have a very crazy work schedule so i was a little bit scared of whether not i was going to find a good place in time. Christian must have taken really good mental notes the first day because i was in an apartment by the next weekend!!! He called me one day during the week to come over and look at a place during my lunch break...and it was everything i was asking for!! I''m a month into my new home and super happy!! I can only hope that i have other people to refer to him because he was super amazing and made it sooo easy!

Had a great experience with Anchor Associates. My broker was Audrey Blair. I had worked with several brokers in New York and seen several apartments, but ended up applying (and signing the lease!) for the first apartment that she showed me. She was very keen to my requirements and needs, was well-prepared for our meetings, and liaised with the management company on my behalf. We maintained a steady line of communication throughout the entire process and she ensured everything proceeded as smoothly as possible. Overall very satisfied and would use her service again!

We found Helene Campbell through a cousin of ours who swears by her. Helene did not disappoint! She came with a fully prepared dossier of rentals for my mom, who was able to find the right apartment the same morning. Helene helped with the paperwork, and everything went very smoothly. We are particularly impressed with her knowledge of NYC and her responsiveness to our priorities, which shifted a bit as she showed us apartments. We loved working with her, and would recommend her to anyone looking for apartments here in NYC. David S.

I would highly recommend Mick DiStasio for his professionalism. He was a pleasure to work with and fully understood my requirements. What set him apart from other brokers was the fact that he never pressured me into choosing an apartment. He always told me to take my time and was more than willing to show me apartments at times that suited me. On top of that he''s a really nice guy!

I can''t speak highly enough of the work Nick Campbell did for my girlfriend and I in securing our new apartment on the Upper West Side. We first contacted him about a month and a half out from our move-in date, and he soon contacted us and started doing some research based on what sorts of places we were looking for. He had an answer for every question we had, and, was honest and forthcoming in every interaction we had with him. He did all of the legwork in setting up about 10 apartment viewings over 2 dates. He gave valuable insights and background on each apartment we saw, and really made us feel comfortable at all times. He was very sensitive to our budget and walked us through the pros and cons of each place we saw. We ended up finding an unbelievable apartment within our budget and in a location that is as good as it gets. There is no way we would have been able to find our new place without Nick, and we are very thankful we connected with him! Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a new place in the city.

This is regarding Christian Mendez: Christian was fabulous to work with as he truly understood what we were looking for. Where most brokers are after the money, Christian really wanted us to have an apartment that suited US. We saw almost 10 apartments with Christian and every apartment got closer and closer to what we wanted until we found the perfect one. Christian is sincere, hardworking, and honest. He tells you how it is and doesn''t waste time. Each unit he shows you he has already seen and vetted and can speak to it. In case I''m not getting my point across: CHRISTIAN IS AMAZING When I start looking for my next apartment. I can tell you already, CHRISTIAN MENDEZ will be my broker

5 star rating10/5/2015 My boyfriend and I were having a very difficult time finding what we wanted, where we wanted and with time not in our favor, it was our luck to have Mr. Howard Hauptman, an agent with Anchor Associates Group, recommended to us. He was literally a hero that saved us from the obstacle course that is New York City real estate leasing! Not having any luck finding the right apartment that matched our extremely particular criteria, Mr. Hauptman was able to jump right in last minute and find us not just a solution, but our dream home. He helped us find exactly what we were looking for, literally the only unit that existed in our desired location that checked every box on the list. No other leasing agent was able to meet our needs, and Mr. Hauptman was able to find our hidden gem. Further, he helped manage the leasing process and helped smooth out the bumps in the road. It''s rarely smooth sailing when apartment hunting and leasing in New York, but thanks to agents like Mr. Hauptman and the Anchor Associates Group you really can have a happy ending

I worked with Nick Campbell again this year to find an apartment. Although at the end of the day I decided to go with an apartment not brokered by Anchor Associates, I will say what I said in the previous times I''ve worked with Nick that he was super gracious and super helpful regardless of the fact that I went in a different direction with regards to picking an apartment. He really is fantastic to work with and I would highly recommend him. Nick is a very genuine, no nonsense guy and most importantly - a straight-shooter. He won''t waste your time with white lies like other brokers in the city. The broker fee is more than worth paying when you are working with a guy like Nick Campbell. For the second year in a row, two thumbs up.

I reached out to Anchor Associates for help finding an apartment - quick! I worked with Jimmy, who was wonderful. He showed me 11 different options, hitting up 5 neighborhoods in 4 days. It was my first time looking for my own place, and Jimmy made sure I was comfortable, educated and happy throughout the entire decision-making process. He was always available via email, phone or text and a pleasure to work with in-person. Needless to say, I found a great apt and am very thankful for his expertise and services.

This is regarding the excellent experience we had with Gloria Burtch. She is one who can give brokers a good name. We had been told horror stories about brokers: told to find any way around having to use one; told that everyone always resents having to hand their money over after such an unpleasant experience, but Gloria proved all those warnings wrong. She had been referred to us by a friend. It''s telling and important to know that much of Gloria''s business is by referral. This is the reason why: she is not pushy; she is kind; she genuinely wants to help you; she knows that moving is often a stressful time of life, especially into one of Earth''s most intimidating places. She made the process no longer intimidating because with her long experience, she told us calmly and informatively what we should expect and what we shouldn''t. She listened to what was important to us and tried to find us places that fit that. She didn''t try to push anything on us that skewed from our priorities. Unfortunately, we worked with another broker from the Bond firm who fit the horror-broker template completely: he told us what we should be doing; he criticized our choices for wanting something a little different than what he had available; he talked (loudly) over us when we were trying to convey our priorities; and he sneered that we brought our three children along to see apartments. This, I expect, is what most New Yorkers have to experience, but gladly, Gloria was a delight. When it came down to the happy blessing of having two apartments to choose from--one found by Gloria, and one found by the pushy and forceful guy--we wanted our money to go not only to the efficient and professional person, but to the NICE person. Whaddya know? Sometimes the nice person does win out in the end.

I spend lots of time to find a 6 month lease in NYC. It is not an easy thing!! I found Scott and Furnished NYC Homes and they really solved all my problems. Scott is extremely efficient and understand the needs or temporary or short relocations. He is there to make things easy so you can just concentrate on enjoying NYC. The apartment was just as it was described in the photos and we found no surprises. It was fully equipped, in a perfect location, and with the most helpful staff. The Superintendent and Doorman were just out the league. They solved any single problem!! I will highly recommend Scott as a trustworthy Broker!!

This review is regarding Helene Campbell who helped my boyfriend and I find a wonderful 1 bedroom apartment. I was referred to Helene from a friend, and we couldn''t have had a smoother or more pleasant experience. As everyone knows, it can be both time consuming and stressful searching for an apartment to rent in NYC. From our first contact with Helene, she proved to be incredibly responsive and helpful. We communicated via email to narrow down our specifications and budget and Helene also sent over a checklist of all the documents we should bring to viewings so we could be sure to apply right away if we found an apartment we liked. She accommodated our schedules and set up 5 appointments on a Saturday afternoon, ultimately finding an apartment that met all of our needs on that very same day. Helene was very respectful of our budget and was never pushy. Throughout the lease signing process and approval, Helene remained in steady contact and talked us through each step. We would refer Helene to anyone who is looking for a stress-free experience and a great broker/client relationship. Helene is the best!

Looking for an apartment with Samona has been a real pleasure. I am an international student with no US guarantor, so it is not always easy to rent an apartment in New York, but Samona arranged everything and showed me great places that I could rent. I emailed Samona before arriving in New york, and she showed me 6 different apartments on my first day in the city. She perfectly understood what I was looking for, and took all the criteria I had given her into consideration. When I found an apartment that I loved, Samona help me out through the entire process, reassuring me when I was scared I would not get the apartment, and even showing me other places to have a back up plan. She was always there when I needed information or help. Thanks to Samona''s great work, preparation and professionalism, I have found the perfect apartment for me! To sum up, I had a great experience with Anchor Associate group and I deeply recommend their real estate agents!

We went through Anchor Associates, and specifically Helene Campbell in order to find my son an apartment for his last year of college. We were out of state, but Helene made it as easy as possible for questions, concerns, and next steps. We almost gave up, but with her perseverance my son now has an apartment of his own. I would highly recommend Anchor, and more specifically Helene, for any future apartment hunting ventures.

I recently purchased a 2 bedroom apartment with A.K. in the Upper East Side and I would highly recommend his services. A.K. was excellent at negotiating on our behalf and was very patient working with every member involved with the deal such as the lawyers, banks, other broker, co-op board, and seller. In addition to his professional skills, he is always quick to respond to e-mails and phone calls. His calm, and friendly demeanor made the process a very positive experience and A.K. was always on top of everything 24/7. I would high recommend any buyer, seller, or even a renter to A.K!

This review is for Helene Campbell. She was great to work with and tries very hard to meet our needs. Very professional and was always early with our appointments. The apartments she showed us all fit to our requirements, and she made sure before hand that the landlord can work with extra security without a guarantor. We finally settled up with an apartment in 4 days from the time we contacted Helene. Very satisfied with her being our broker.

This review is for Harry Ego-Aguirre. After my roommates and I tried to find a place with no fee for a few weeks, we met Harry. He originally was showing us another typical tiny no fee location in the EWS which wasn''t the right fit for us. Harry asked us what exactly we''re looking for price range, size, location, etc. and that''s how we found our new place! He got straight to the point and got us through all the paperwork seamlessly.

As a new resident in New York City, we are happy with the service provided by Lydia Mahida. She is professional and has gone out of her way to help us find a suitable place within our budget. She also makes sure that our interests are protected and taken care of. We're grateful that we now have an apartment where all the basic necessities work. Best of all, the rent is affordable, lower than our previous place despite a bigger premise. Thank you Lydia for your patience and for taking care of everything for us.

I had met with a few brokers before finally getting in touch with Lydia. I was uncomfortable and displeased with many of the brokers I had met before her. Lydia however changed my entire apartment hunt around very quickly. I wanted to be picky and particular about my apartment and Lydia allowed me to do so and ultimately found me EXACTLY what I was looking for. She was personable, friendly and overall extremely likable. Lydia really listened to what I wanted, and really made a great effort to show me exactly what I was asking for and nothing less. Lydia was on time to appointments (which we had had issues with other brokers), she also made the most of our appointments by showing us multiple apartments (all of which you could tell she had thought about based on my requirements) within the blocks we were looking on a specific day. She also followed up and kept in touch with me which is important during this process. Lydia was knowledgeable not only about real estate and neighborhoods but knew a lot about each building we viewed as well. She also had access to an impressive array or all different apartments for me to look and compare. All these qualities show not only great customer service but also showed that she cared about the client and what they wanted more than just closing a deal. I was extremely happy with everything and how it turned out. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone and I would use her again when the time comes. Really a pleasure to work with. 12/04/14

He cuts to the chase, but also has a friendly demeanor. He gave us the respect and empathy that we never got from other brokers. By working with Shawn, we finally found a broker we can trust.

This is the second year that my roommate and I have turned to Nick Campbell for our NYC apartment search and have once again found an awesome spot. Nick is reliable, friendly and communicative - all essential traits for a real estate agent in this crazy city. We felt confident that Nick would find us another great apartment after having success working with him last year and as a result, we just landed our dream apartment! Nick really listens to what his clients are looking for and doesn''t waste their time with results outside of those parameters. Nick, thank you for a seamless, stress-free apartment search and for helping us lock down another amazing NYC apartment!!

I found Dexter after working with a few other agents and he was definitely the most helpful. He asked detailed questions about what kind of place I wanted and what neighborhoods I preferred, and then showed me places that actually matched. ... Thanks to Dexter, I found a great place within my budget. He also helped me with the application and I was approved and all set in less than a week.

A.K. helped me find the right luxury listing during the busy summer period. Instead of wasting my time and showing me every option that wouldn't work, he instead did a thorough job getting every detail on what I was looking for. We spent a couple of days looking at only the right listings and finally settled on the right one. I would recommend A.K. to any serious renters as well as my network.

Danny is a pleasure to work with. He responded to my initial request for information on a holiday and things only got better from there. He is extremely responsive, does his research and knows how to get you what you want. He is friendly, personable, does not push an agenda, and works with you. I will gladly work with him again in the future.

- Kitu Kumar,   August 11, 2015
 
Danny Li is a great agent. He is very friendly and it''s easy to work with him. He was the only broker that asked us what were we looking for in an apartment and showed us places that fit our needs. I am very happy with my new place and will definitely recommend him to other apartment hunters. Just so you know, I got a rent stabilized apartment during the summer season - a quite busy rental season in NYC. All thanks to Danny!

- Vianney Gimenez-Pinto,   August 07, 2015
 
Danny cares about finding what your looking for and always keeps his clients best interests in mind. He is kind, resourceful and above all extremely reliable. He''s willing to go the extra mile to find the right place and truly cares about his work. I highly recommend Danny and will be using him for years to come in seeking out great NYC apartments.

Ross Vesselinov was the solution to all our apartment hunting needs. I never thought that I would come out of the NYC apartment search process with such a great place and so much fun doing so as well! Thanks to Ross, my roommate and I were able to find a place and sign a lease within 3 days from beginning to finish. We knew we wanted a place on Long Island City within a certain budget and Ross made sure to show us places that met our exact needs. After the first apartment we looked at, we were able to submit an application. The following day, as we waited for the result of our application, Ross took us around Manhattan to look for some more residences, and we were able to get some more options in case the first application fell through. Luckily, we were approved within two days and had an apartment that met all of our needs and then some (such as a TENNIS COURT!!). My roommate and I are extremely excited for our apartment and cannot wait to move in, all thanks to Ross. If you want a hassle free and fun apartment search process with someone who is attentive and honest, go with Ross. He will make sure you find the right place.

I was looking for an apartment in NY, quite the daunting task to begin with, however, Samona Butler made the experience such a pleasant one. Exemplary service in a chaotic environment. Very responsive which is a pet peeve of mine.Thank you!

- Katniss M.,   August 03, 2015
 
Judith was very helpful when I viewed an apartment in the east village. She knew it was a competitive apartment, so she made sure to follow up with me regularly, without being overly push like many other brokers in the city.

Mr. Gregg was very helpful helping us searching for our dream apartment which now my whole family really enjoy it. Without his expertise, his excellent negotiational skills, I think my family will lose the chance to get the apartment, anyway, thanks Mr. Gregg

- Ngar,   July 24, 2015
 
To whom it may concern, I am a handicap older woman. I worked with Gregg to find an apartment after living in my present home for 37 years. He not only escorted me in his car, pushed my wheel chair, helped me in and out of his car with my walker, and never made me feel self conscious about my impediment. One of the kindness people I''ve ever encountered.

- Lynn Schecter ,   July 22, 2015
 
It was a great experience working with Gregg,! He is trustworthy, knowledgeable and professional. We are very happy with our newly purchased apartment and highly recommend him.

- Jing Li ,   July 22, 2015
 
Gregg was absolutely great in finding me an apartment that had everything I was looking for. I ended up renting an amazing apartment in the midtown west area. I would DEFINITELY recommend Gregg to my friends if they want to find something in NYC, and will hopefully use him again in the future.

This guy is the real deal. I can''t sing his praises enough. I moved to NYC and looked at almost 20 apartments with various brokers. I responded to Zack''s listing, he called me that day, met me and has everything taken care of to view some places. Instead of wasting my time, he asked me what I wanted, cancelled those that didn''t work for me and told me I''ve got the one. Then we saw it, it was the absolute best deal on the market (unheard of Manhattan studio with prime location, quality and price). As if that wasn''t enough, he got me an even better deal and did whatever it took to get the approval and help me figure out a way to close the deal. Leased was signed within 24 hours. Trust me, this guy has what it takes. Don''t even waste your time with anybody else. Zack gets it done everytime and more importantly, you can trust him. He''s available. He follows up even after the close. Everything a broker should be and worth every penny. Call him right now.

Ben was a pleasure to work with on my transaction. Not knowing the various neighborhoods in Manhattan, Ben asked the right questions regarding my needs and immediately pointed me in the right direction regarding the specific neighborhood I should concentrate on. Once that was established he did his homework to find properties that I would be interested in. I did not want to spend a lot of time looking at property after property. Within a few days we found a property that fit my needs and negotiated a price that I was comfortable with. During the due diligence period had guided me through the process and the transaction closed without any surprises. I strongly recommend Ben for your purchase.

- Patrick A. Trulia.com 7/14/2015,   July 14, 2015
 
I received help from Danny Li, who was quick to respond and answer all of my questions. He made sure to keep me updated and let me know the moment an apartment was available/unavailable. He''s really friendly, professional and good at what he does. I highly recommend him to help find an apartment in this fast moving city!

- Chelly P.,   July 14, 2015
 
My boyfriend and I just signed the lease on a new apartment this week using Anchor Associates and couldn''t be happier. Howard Hauptman was our amazing broker who made the entire experience so exciting, enjoyable and FAST. We found our apartment on a Wednesday and signed the lease the following Tuesday! Not only is Howard knowledgeable about New York real estate, he is also incredibly kind and patient. Trying to find an apartment in NYC can be a nightmare. It can be very difficult to find someone to work with that you really trust. Howard was that person for us. We really felt like we made a personal connection with him and will absolutely be recommending him to anyone we know looking to rent or buy in NYC. Thank you again Howard!

Jonathan is a creditable broker whom you can trust and rely on. Not only does he understand the recent behaviors of the real estate market, but he also provides reliable advice. He is a very fair person who makes reasonable judgements based on his clients'' personal backgrounds and situations. I was one of the cases who needed housing soon since I had just relocated from a different continent and had no idea about apartment hunting in NY. Jonathan had successfully found me an apartment that fit my preferences which I knew had high hurdles, but had done it smoothly. He is definitely a broker that anyone would want to work together with.

- Saika Yamamoto,   July 07, 2015
 
Go find Danny Li for sure!!! He is bilingual at Chinese and English fluently(I don''t know what else he can speak). He is super easy going and honest, which means reliable. When you looking for a future home, that is the most important thing that can help you to, I think.

- Jing. L,   July 06, 2015
 
Danny Li is sooo good! He is nice, patient and professional as an agent! He''s never being pushy. He will consider your requirements and give the reasonable suggestions! I had a pleasant experience with him!!!

- Amanda A,   July 06, 2015
 
My roommate and I worked with Zack Haluszczak this year and we were very happy with our apartment search results. Zack took extra time and effort to fully understand the apartment needs and budget we were looking for, only showing us locations we could actually afford, without any hidden fees or deceptive prices. He also prepared tours of several available apartments for us to view together, and had arranged keys and viewing availabilities beforehand. Zack was also very helpful when it came down to meeting with the landlords and submitting all necessary paperwork. The extra effort and level of professionalism did not go unnoticed!

- Stephen G. on Yelp!,   July 06, 2015
 
I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with Danny Li. He was awesome! When my future roommate and I arrived at the office, we received a warm welcome and were walked through the process of using a broker in New York. I felt comfortable asking questions and Danny was so helpful and resourceful. We then ventured out to visit apartments based on a route he had prepared. We saw five potential places in total. We did not feel pressured and felt like Danny truly cared that we find a place that matches our needs. At each location, he would ask us questions to see what we liked or didnt about the place, which help gauge what the ideal apartment would look like. Overall, future roommate and I had a great experience and I would be happy to work with Danny again to find the perfect home.

- Christine M.,   July 02, 2015
 
Ben is a go-getter who really hustled for us. He quickly learned what we liked and gave us a steady stream of potential places to review. He quickly set up appointments for site visits and got timely feedback on any questions we had. Our search took over 6 months and Ben never wavered in his assistance to us. Once we had an accepted offer Ben showed outstanding knowledge of all of the processes (coop board, legal, banking, closing, etc.) that we needed to navigate to bring the deal to a successful conclusion. He made a stressful process relatively easy and the closing completed with no issues. I highly recommend Ben without hesitation or equivocation.

- Andrew C. Zillow.com 7/1/15,   July 02, 2015
 
Working with Tony Segno was an absolute pleasure from the start. He was always more than willing to go out of his way for our convenience while maintaining the proper professional procedures. As new renters, we were looking for someone with his experience and expertise to help us find the perfect place, and he more than succeeded. I would, and plan to, recommend Tony’s excellent work to anyone interested in a truly seamless rental experience.

- Brittany Pease,   July 02, 2015
 
Francois Baron helped us find our apartment after just 3 afternoons of searching! He provided extremely kind and professional service from the start of our search all the way through to signing the lease. This was our first time looking for apartments in NYC and despite reading so many horror stories online, our search with Francois was hassle-free. As non-US residents we were concerned it would be hard to find an apartment that would accept us, but Francois was a fantastic advocate and helped us secure the perfect apartment. I have already recommended him to a friend and would use him again without question!

- Ben and Reesha,   June 30, 2015
 
Unbelieveable service in a particularly difficult transaction - I am South African and had little time to view and once back home, had practical challenges like time differences, signing documents, closing etc. Ben remained calm and solution driven all the time. Unbelievable. Highly highly recommend him.

- Donne C. Trulia.com 6/30/15,   June 30, 2015
 
Samona was awesome! I moved to NYC from out of state and she found me the perfect apartment. She is very knowledgeable about her areas of coverage. She even contacted me after I was in the apartment for a few weeks to ensure that I was settled in. I recommend her to anyone looking for a place in NYC.

- Jevon W.,   June 30, 2015
 
Jon was a fantastic realty agent for my roommates and I. He was very professional, very personable, and very fair. Finding a quality apartment in NYC can be a very overwhelming task. Jon made the process much more bearable. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to find an apartment in NYC. We''re extremely happy in our new place. - Erik

- Erik Roos,   June 29, 2015
 
I very much enjoyed working with Ben. He was thoughtful in his approach ensuring he understood our needs and recommending we look at places that fit our profile. As we narrowed down our search, Ben was responsive in looking at market comps to get us comfortable with our bid and walking us through the process. Ben was not pushy and ensured we were making an informed bid at each stage of the process. Once our bid was accepted, Ben stayed very involved ensuring our Board package was complete and following up with the Property Management/Board until we had our approvals in hand. I would highly recommend Ben and his team to anyone seeking an apartment in Manhattan.

- Anne C. Trulia.com 6/29/15,   June 29, 2015
 
My husband and I worked with Kelly Neptune from Anchor Midtown to find our apartment in NYC. She was so incredible. She is zero pressure, she listened to us, and even when we didn''t know what we wanted, she was able to hone in on it for us. I have never had a more pleasant experience with a real estate broker. When we are looking to buy in a couple of years, we will be calling Kelly. Thank you!!

- Molly P,   June 27, 2015
 
Phillip Estevez was extremely helpful for my roommate and I and made finding an apartment in lower Manhattan very stress free. If you''re looking for an apartment in Manhattan I highly recommend contacting Phillip Estevez of anchor associates.

- Omar A. - Yelp,   June 25, 2015
 
I had a great experience with Zack from Anchor! He was really helpful and attentive throughout the entire process. He was always reachable and lined up so many places for me to see it made the process really great. Would definitely recommend them to anyone!!

Nick Campbell helped us find a great apartment! He was so patient with our indecisiveness and was really accommodating given that our roommates were in three different cities. He made the process really easy and as enjoyable as finding/moving into a new apartment can be! We will definitely use him for our next apartment.

- Meghan M. Yelp.com 6/18/15,   June 19, 2015
 
My experience with Emily was fantastic. She knows the city, has some great relationships, reacts quickly and showed me some incredible options. Do your research, have an idea what you want and Emily will find it.

- Michael H.,   June 18, 2015
 
Emily is very educated and responsible person: she knows what your are looking for and shows only essential apartments that meet your criterion. Her follow-up is always immediate! I bet you won't regret working with her.

- Jaewook L.,   June 18, 2015
 
Phillip Estevez made finding an apartment Manhattan easy. I have already recommended him to my friends who are looking for apartments in Manhattan as well. He really listened to what our needs were and what our budget was, but he was also very knowledgeable and helped us find out what we really wanted in the end. He is easy to talk to and always available for questions. He made apartment shopping smooth and stress free. We were fortunate to work with him.

- Nicolas H. - Yelp,   June 15, 2015
 
I recently had the pleasure of working Lauren on an apartment search and it was an unqualified success. Lauren has close relationships with the property managers she works with making the process so much easier. Lauren was responsive, dependable and listened to and executed on my ask. The best part about Lauren is that she is an all around good human being, which I have found to be a rare commodity in the real estate business. I have no reservations about recommending Lauren.

Teresa Osorio has helped me move in just one week into an up and coming neighborhood! Teresa is professional and gets exactly the kind of place you want to live in. Thanks Teresa!!!

- David B,   June 09, 2015
 
Teresa Osorio is THE ONE TO GO TO !!!!! Honestly, I could make a #1 best seller based on the experience we faced and AMAZING dedication Teresa has shown me during our apartment search. We started apartment searching in November, when Teresa was with another company. However, she continued to keep in contact with me making sure my apartment search was moving smoothly. I had a really tough time finding an apt. in NYC because roommate situations kept changing at the last minute, BUT Teresa has stood by my side for MONTHS THE ENTIRE TIME! I have never heard of a broker sticking with their clients during so much turmoil and long searching. It showed me that she cares about my well being and living, so I began to give her my full trust. I chose not to work with any other realtor or broker. I am so honored and thankful to have worked with her. There were days she spent hours going all over Manhattan and Brooklyn with a list of apartments for me to search from. Each time she was right by my side, sometimes even provided transportation. Finally after finalizing roommate situation and budgets, Teresa managed to FIND ME THE PERFECT DREAM APARTMENT!!!! I live in a beautiful newly fully renovated apartment in Bedstuy with all the amenities one can ask for. It''s absolutely beautiful in my price range and the ideal location I originally wanted to live in. I am so thankful and happy!!! If it wasn''t for her hard work and dedication, who knows where I would be staying right now. I am happy that we got to experience this because everything happens for a reason...and to say my first New York apartment is a dream apartment is still shocking and mind blowing TO BOTH OF US! I can now say she went from a hard working broker to a friend! She won''t fail you and will go far and beyond to make sure you''re content and approved! Trust me!

- Frankie W,   June 09, 2015
 
Ross Vesselinov was great! My boyfriend contacted him regarding a listing he found online and Ross responded right away to set up an appointment. He had us send our preferences and what we were looking for in an apartment (i.e. budget, # of bedrooms, amenities, etc.) so that he would know which places to show us. Ross took us all over Manhattan for hours one Saturday showing us places that he thought would fit our criteria. He is very knowledgeable about the different areas of the city, which subway lines are nearby, what there is to do in the area, etc. He is also very honest and realistic about what kind of apartment you will be able to get on your budget. Although we were interested in several apartments that he showed us, we ended up having to postpone our move for several months. Ross was completely understanding. We contacted him again in March and he suggested that we start our search this time in Long Island City. Based on our preferences and reactions to the first set of apartments he showed us, he thought that we could likely get more of what we were looking for within our budget in LIC. The first apartment he showed us had everything that we were looking for! We filled out an application that day and now we''re living in a beautiful apartment in LIC and loving it!! Overall, this was a great experience and Ross was very helpful and supportive throughout the whole process. He helped us with our application and even came to our lease signing to answer any questions that we might have had. He really listens to what you''re looking for and does his best to find you a place that has what you want. I would recommend Ross to anyone looking for an apartment in NYC, and when we''re ready to move I know we''ll be contacting him again!

- Nicole R,   June 09, 2015
 
I told Rob what I wanted in regards to a luxury apartment and he was very diligent in finding us a place the met and exceeded our standards. He also recommended a moving company that did a great job. I highly recommend using Rob as a broker in NYC

- Matt B. New York ,   June 08, 2015
 
Our experience with Amy Wang was excellent. She was helpful in all phases of the purchase, and in suggesting other people who could help with various tasks. We got better mortgage rate and a very responsible attorney through Amy. Amy was very detail oriented and careful when preparing all docs for the coop board. I recommend her in the highest possible terms.

Finding an ideal apartment is not always easy, especially in NYC! But my agent Art Jalandoni from Anchor Associates really made this process so much easier. As a new grad, I moved from Boston to NYC to start my career, and I had a limited amount of time to find an apartment before my work started. Art really listened to my needs and concerns, and he has always been responsive to my inquiries. He''s a great communicator and brings a lot of passion to work. With his help, I found a nice apartment in Manhattan in a great area. I would recommend Art for helping anyone with relocation needs. I''m sure you won''t be disappointed.

- Meng G. (Yelp),   June 04, 2015
 
Posted on YELP: Gilad Paz went above and beyond to help me and my roommate find an apartment within our budget, neighborhood and other requirements. He spent the day patiently showing me places while I sent pictures to my roommate (who was not with us) and was incredibly helpful communicating with her and myself about our options. We ended up finding the perfect place and he even provided restaurant recommendations etc many of which I am excited to explore! This was my first experience looking for an apartment and he was also very informative regarding the paperwork I would need and what to expect from the process. I would still be wandering NYC looking for an apartment without him and cannot praise him enough for his help.

- Alison M.,   June 03, 2015
 
It was overwhelming trying to find an apartment in NYC, especially if you are moving from other cities. We were looking for apartments by ourselves first, but then we decided we have to find an agent to help us. Then I began searching online and reading yelp reviews. Finally I reached out to Art Jalandoni from Anchor. He is very professional and responsible. Because we are international students, there are a lot process that we have to go through. Art was there every step, helping us in every way he could. And I have to mention, he is so responsive and reliable. I remember he went out of country once. During that time, he not only arranged his colleague to help us out, but also answered calls and responded to emails and messages really quickly. We are so happy with our apartment! It meets every requirements of ours. Thank you Art for your all your helps!

- Sammy G. (Yelp),   June 03, 2015
 
Zino Angelides was great help in finding me a new apartment. He worked hard to find a variety of good choices based on my detailed requirements. He was always there when I had any questions, and he was very honest in the process. I definitely recommend him for anyone looking to get an apartment in the city.

  June 03, 2015
 
Without a doubt, Randy is the most honest, helpful and hard working broker I have encountered in New York. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable about the industry, but he is invested in his clients and committed to finding them the best possible apartment that fits their criteria. In total, Randy, my roommate and I visited five different apartments over the span of two weekends. Never has Randy been late nor unprepared. Instead, Randy has been reliable, responsive and realistic with us throughout the entire process. He always makes himself available to answer any and all questions (even the ridiculous ones). I cannot tell you how refreshing it has been working with a broker who sincerely seems more committed to providing his clients a service than commissioning a fee. As an NYU student with many obstacles and hoops to jump through to secure a place, Randy really came through. I highly recommend his service!

- Melanie H,   June 03, 2015
 
Apartment searching in NYC can be daunting!! So when I needed to kick start the apartment hunt again, I reached out to friends looking for suggestions on a good broker. I''ve heard many horror stories about brokers, so I was a bit apprehensive... A good friend of mine had been transferred back to NYC for work and needed to find a place in a matter of days (literally!). The situation was a bit crazy, but she raved about the support that her broker gave her during the apartment hunt - and she found an awesome studio in a great neighborhood. Which is exactly why I reached out to Nick Campbell for my search this time around. He was awesome - within two days he had walked me through the process, answered tons of questions and had set up 6 apartment viewings in my target neighborhood! We spent 2hrs looking at great apartments - all of which I would have considered. He was a great sounding board during the search and really knowledgeable about the neighborhood. My experience with Nick changed my opinion of NYC brokers!! I would highly recommend his services to any of my friends!

Keida Dizdari was fantastic to work with and made our apartment search pain free. She showed us only well kept and managed properties. She moved quick when a new property opened up that she thought we would like and the next morning we were submitting our application.

- Emily P. (Yelp),   June 02, 2015
 
Abdul was always quick in answering questions that I had via texts or phone calls. He was patient in explaining the intricate of apartment hunting in Manhattan and gave great advice. He noted when we would be available and when we would not be, and followed up with us based the schedule we informed him about. A very personable and reliable broker to work with if you are searching for an apartment in NYC.

- Carol Y. Yelp.com 6/1/2015,   June 02, 2015
 
Ross Vesselinov is fantastic! As a newcomer to NYC, I was overwhelmed with apartment hunting in the city. I randomly came across an apartment that Ross showed me and he took the lead. Very picky about what and where and how much I wanted, he listened and created a focused list of places to see. When I moved from the first place to check out a new area, I called Ross. Again, he was on point and I LOVE my new place. I have no concerns whatsoever recommending Ross as a broker. He is great, patient and tireless.

- Jamie T,   June 02, 2015
 
Posted on YELP: Gilad Paz is truly a wonder to work with. He helped us find an apartment even though we were out of State while looking. He was incredibly kind, accommodating and willing to help us with all our needs. We cannot thank you enough, Gilad, for all of you help and kindness! Thank you thank you thank you!!

- Rachel Y.,   May 30, 2015
 
Posted on Yelp: I honestly could not speak higher of Gilad Paz. I usually am not a fan of brokers, but Gilad was efficient yet never pushy, and so friendly while also refreshingly honest. He went the extra mile in navigating my situation and securing my dream apartment for me. He made the process such a smooth, easy and thoroughly pleasant experience (and that is never said about apartment hunting!).

- Katrina S.,   May 30, 2015
 
This is regarding Diane Magnuson, who was fantastic to work with. I ultimately decided to go another direction with my apartment search, but working with Diane was such a good experience compared with other brokers I contacted, I had to post a review. She didn''t hassle me, worked with me to find good listings, and felt very trustworthy when I was working with her. I could definitely tell she was putting a good amount of time and effort to find something I liked. I hated that I couldn''t go with one of her units, I just happened to fall in love with an apartment I stumbled across online by chance. However the next time I need to find a place in NYC, I''ll be reaching out to Diane first.

Work with Robert - he was by far the best part of my move to NYC. I have moved many times (In the U.S. and abroad) and he definitely makes the short list of professionals I would recommend to close friends and family. I was surprised by the speed with which he works (you can tell he knows the market like the back of his hand) and he was able to match me with an apartment that I am very happy with. Managements really work on the owners behalf and it was essential to have someone who knows the game working for my interests. I will definitely be calling Robert again in the future.

- S. Patel - New York,   May 20, 2015
 
Lauren Guidry was amazing! Moving from the UK we had no idea of the market, and Lauren took the time to explain everything to us. She listened to what we wanted and found us the perfect apartment. Lauren goes out of her way to help her clients find the perfect place and the best deals. She is very knowledgeable of the market, and is warm and friendly. If we ever move from this amazing apartment, Lauren will be the first person I call!

- Laura D,   May 20, 2015
 
I started working with Art Jalandoni last Fall. I mentioned to him that we were looking for a 2 bedroom/2 bath and had very specific requirements. I thought it would take at least a year to find something that met my needs. Incredibly enough it took just a few short months. Somehow, he did it! We have the perfect home now and I am so grateful that I found Art. Art works really hard for his clients and I really appreciate that. I travel quite a bit for work so there were weekends where I wasn''t around for open houses. Art would go to the open houses on my behalf and either FaceTime me or take videos and share. If that is not going above and beyond I don''t know what is. 5 Stars all the way.

- Joanna Stark (Yelp),   May 15, 2015
 
It was an absolute pleasure working with Keida Dizdari! She was incredibly knowledgeable, reliable, and professional. We had a difficult time deciding what exactly we wanted from Manhattan, and Keida was always very patient and honest about our options. She showed us incredible apartments that fit our budget, and she always took the time to understand our needs. I highly recommend Keida for any of your real estate needs!

Phillip Estevez made my move to New York go as smooth as possible. He was very professional and was always quick to respond to me at any time of the day. After researching different apartments he was able to find me the perfect apartment within my budget and in a great location. He was very honest and straight forward throughout the whole process. His knowledge of the city was extremely helpful when viewing apartments. He was very flexible, which made it easy for many viewings to be scheduled in such short notice. This was my first time renting an apartment, but he made it as simple and quick as possible for me. He answered all my questions and was very helpful every step of the way. I highly recommend working with Phillip!

It was extremely challenging trying to find a short term, furnished rental in NYC during peak travel time until we secured Eyal''s professional and patient assistance! Accomplishing this endeavor completely by phone and email was an added challenge, but we were thrilled to have his expertise, time and talents! He went above and beyond and was very helpful! We are grateful for him and his extensive knowledge of the area and the process! He made what could have been an overwhelming and frustrating challenge so much easier!

I can't recommend Samona enough. She went out of her way to find a great apartment for me, even during the Christmas holiday, and was kind and courteous throughout the search. I dealt with some brokers that were pushy and slightly rude but Samona was neither. She was a true professional and I would definitely recommend her.

Posted on Yelp: Relocating back to NY after many years away and needed to find a place quickly. Gilad Paz helped me to find a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment in Chelsea in one day! He asked the right questions up front and lined up great options for me. I would definitely work with Gilad again!

Diane was fantastic in helping me find an apartment during my move from DC to NY. She was the only agent I heard from who actually paid attention to what I was looking for, and sent me back a list of great options to consider. Other agents were sending one-off apartments that usually weren''t anything like what I had asked for. Since I was in NY for only a few days Diane helped me make the most of my time by scheduling a handful of viewings on a Saturday, and had the schedule and map all laid out, making it pretty painless for me to just show up and focus on comparing places. She was also very helpful with general advice about the search, never pressured me into making a decision, and followed up on the units I applied for. Within those few days I was approved for an apartment and signed a lease. After having moved I can safely say I love the place and am glad I worked with Diane.

Nick made our NYC home finding an immense pleasure. If you want a broker whom actually genuinely cares about finding the best fit for you (a rarity here) and not his commission ask for Nick Goforth. He was amazingly kind and honest with us in answering our questions and in spending numerous days with us to find the right home. He never pressured us for a certain apartment and his knowledge of the market and his profession was truly impressive to say the least. A good broker makes his client feel they have their back and as a result of Nick making us feel that way we signed in confidence with him. We love our new home. Go with Nick and trust me you won''t regret it.

One word sums up Emily. Amazing. I was faced with the task of moving across the country from San Francisco to NYC and had 2 days to find a place. I connected with Emily through some online research and immediately felt comfortable in her ability to find me something. I was a bit scattered and anxious leading up to the apartment hunt, but Emily remained unwavered in her confidence that everything would be fine. She continuously made me feel less stressed than I undoubtedly would have felt if left to do this on my own. Prior to my visit she had me list out all of my criteria and when we met she had over 30 places mapped out for us to view; each organized in a well-thought-out pattern for visiting in an expeditious manner. Even when I threw her a curve ball at the end of day 1 (changed most, if not all, my criteria on her) she was able to regroup and show me several great properties the next day, ultimately leading to a beautiful place. Post lease signing, Emily has remained in contact to ensure my move was happening smoothly and to let her know if there was anything I needed. A sign of a true professional who deeply cares for her clients. I would recommend anyone I know to use Emily in the future. They wont be disappointed.

Ross is a very responsible agent. He is also very efficient and showed us 7 apartments in one day. Afterwards, when we were making our decisions, Ross kept us updated everyday on the progress of our options. Overall, Ross is an organized and friendly agent and I''d recommend him to everyone looking for apartments in NYC!

Jonathan Biton was a pleasure to work with. He accommodated my hectic work schedule, listened very specifically to what I was looking for and showed me apartments that were in line with my asks and budget. He is a professionally, genuinely cares and knows the NYC market. Jonathan guided my boyfriend and I through the entire lease process end to end, finding us our dream apartment. If that wasn''t enough, he went the extra mile by renting the apartment we were leaving which saved me my security deposit, since I was breaking my lease earlier. Do yourself a favor and call him when you start looking.

I have been working with Diane Magnuson for the last week trying to find a property for rental for the summer in NYC. Diane is ABSOLUTELY THE BEST. She really knows what customer service is all about and goes out of her way to please her customers. I think she works at all hours as I was getting emails from her at all times of the day. I would be delighted to work with her again in the future if/when I have realtor needs in New York.

- Manuel S. - May 2015 (Source: Yelp),   May 05, 2015
 
Diane Magnuson is a fantastic person to work with here. My boyfriend and I contacted multiple brokers in the beginning so we could see as many places as possible and immediately we gravitated towards her, more so than anyone else from any other company. She is so kind, warm, respectful, and honest in her work and it was a pleasure to work with her. What she does that no other broker did for us, is with every listing, she gave a personalized description of it's features, her own personal experiences with the unit/building and even sent additional info about what she liked about each one. It was so helpful to have that extra info in addition to the general listing! That really set her apart from the others and shows she truly cares. Any time I had a question, she would promptly reply and even spent a half hour with me on the phone going over what exactly I was looking for. She is thorough in her work and puts a ton of time and thought into finding her clients a place. Thank you Diane for all your time!!!

Had an experience that couldn''t have been better. Their associate Zino Angelides found me and my wife an apartment on 1) A narrow time table, 2) In the exact neighborhood desired, 3) On a budget, and 4) That was pet friendly for large dogs. Even upon completing our transaction with them, he regularly follows up and is genuinely interested that he found the right place for us. If we are ever moving again we will definitely be going back!

This review concerns our dealings with Helene Campbell who successfully guided my daughter and her boyfriend through the rental of their first apartment. Anyone who has tried to rent in NYC knows how competitive the market can be. In fact, my daughter had seen and lost several apartments before coming to Helene. Helene listened to their requests (one of which was not to submit their application for the apartment until she was sure theirs would be the only app, so as not to lose their application fee -- which had happened before). In any event Helene turned what seemed like a harrowing experience into a successful one and made sure their application was appropriately filled out. Within 24 hours they were on their way to a lease signing. Thank you!

- Judy Baumgarten,   April 29, 2015
 
I just worked with Helene Campbell, who I found through her listing for a wonderful apartment on naked apartments.com. She is experienced, honest, professional, and gets things done promptly. She helped us submit an application for the apartment we saw right away and was available whenever we needed her, without being pushy like other brokers can be in similar situations. I would definitely ask Helene to help me in the future and would trust that all of her listings are of the highest quality.

Jonathan Biton is the best! I had to relocate from Los Angeles to Manhattan and he was incredible. He was able to zero in on exactly what I was looking for and gave me more than enough options to feel great about my choice. He spent all day looking at apartments on his birthday; talk about dedication. He was such a joy to spend all day with and I was able to sign with an apartment within one weekend trip I made to New York. I would highly recommend working with Jonathan

"Charles Gaeta gave me and my roommate many options for apartment units, almost as many as we were able to line up ourselves by searching sites like StreetEasy and Craigslist, but without any of the hassle. We arranged a day with him to devote just to showings and were able to find and apply for a place right then and there, which turned out to be undoubtedly a fit and a keeper for us. He is a broker you can trust, be open and honest with, and freely communicate with. We recommend him to whoever might be searching the market."

New to the NYC apartment hunt, finding the right apartment for the right price was an overwhelming and challenging experience. That all changed when I linked up with Drew Grombala from Anchor Associates. Finding an agent that has your interests in mind is not as common as you''d think in this city. I probably met with ten other agents from different firms around NYC before meeting Drew. My experience went from stressful to enjoyable knowing that Drew was looking out for my best interests. If anyone is looking to buy or rent in the city, I''d recommend Drew 100% of the time. Thanks, Drew. We love our new spot!

- Tyler D. Yelp.com 4/21/15,   April 21, 2015
 
Had a great experience with Anchor. Working with Drew Grombala was a great experience and made our apartment search super easy and stress-free. He is very knowledgable and only showed us places that tailored to price range and preferences while others just showed whatever places they had listed. Also, Drew was very proactive and reached out to us when ever he thought he had a good match for us, rather than us having to hunt him down. Overall, it was a great experience and I recommend using Anchor if you want the best apartment search experience.

Somehow my 19-year-old daughter and her friend found Natalia on their own and she showed them an apartment they loved, so I arranged to meet with Natalia the next day (since the girls are students and my husband and I will be paying half the rent!) One of the first things Natalia said to me when we met face-to-face was that she''s also a mom and is basing her apartment-hunting advice on what she would want for her own daughter. After we spent several hours together, I realized that this was absolutely true. This was my first experience looking to rent a Manhattan apartment, and the whole idea was overwhelming to me. Natalia honestly and thoroughly explained the ins and outs of the process and answered all my questions. She showed me a different apartment first so that I could have a basis for comparison, and then she showed me the apartment the girls wanted. It turned out to be perfect: well-sized, conveniently located, within our price range, and in a lovely building with 24-hour doorman protection. Natalia was responsive and extremely helpful every step of the way. I would give her the highest recommendation.

- Susan B. West Orange, NJ ,   April 20, 2015
 
Great experience! We worked with Drew Grombala and he was the best! Quick, professional and very responsive. We were searching for apartments for quite a while and met with brokers who didn''t really care for our interests; they were more interested in getting the listing to whoever bid first. After meeting with Drew, we found our ideal apartment within a couple of days. He was conscious of what we wanted and showed us places that fit our needs. I recommend for anyone searching for an apartment in NYC and wants a stress-free experience!

I recently worked with Nick Campbell. He showed great knowledge of the market and dedicated a good amount of time doing research for me. I was working with a few other agents at the same time, but no one was as good as Nick. He had a great understanding of my need and showed great responsibility when it came to provide updates/schedule appointment/reply emails/etc. I would recommend Nick to all my friends.

Ross made my move to NYC incredibly easy. I had very little time to search for apartments, and I only gave Ross 1 week''s notice before I''d be traveling to NYC. He was extremely flexible with my busy schedule and took care of everything. For the little free time I had, he had lined up and planned apartment visits and made excellent use of the time I gave him. He listened very well to what I wanted. So well in fact that the second apartment he showed me I ended up taking! He also made sure to take me around to see all of my options, too. He was there throughout the entire process and took care of everything. He was by my side even after the lease was signed. 100% recommended!

- Louis ,   April 11, 2015
 
Posted on Yelp: After several horrible experiences with other brokers, I met with Gilad. He was so friendly, very responsive, and most importantly he was the ONLY broker that showed me apartments that fit my criteria. He listened to what I wanted and found my husband and me a great place in Murray Hill. I would definitely recommend working with Gilad!

I cannot say enough about Kelly - as an alien in NY it is very challenging to find apartments at the best of time. When I started looking at apartment options - it became clear on two fronts, things arent what they appear - you would look at apartments that looked nice and seemed reasonable, but then the agent would say - "it has just gone but we have this other one - slightly more expensive than the listed one - as in $300- 500 + - a scenario called " Bait and Switch" In addition Craigslist just was out of date and not honest. Thank God for Kelly ! - She listened to my concerns, she took into account my budget and also she made me realise an apartment I wasnt going to consider was actually an ideal solution for me and at least take a look. She was right and at no stage was she pushy, she kept in contact, and was the ultimate professional- she went to work in conjunction with the property manager to ensure I got the best deal possible that worked with my budget. I am absolutely going to recommend her to my friends here... and will use her again without hesitation.

It was a pleasure to work with broker Yuliya Kalshteyn. She helped me find an apartment that is perfect for me in my desired location and price range. I know Manhattan and the rental process well, yet as a single renter who works full-time, I did not have time to search out all my own viewings. Yuliya prioritized showing me the properties whose owners paid the broker fee. I also preferred to work with Yuliya for her more reasonable fee of one month''s rent when the majority charges 2 months.

It’s been a month we moved in our new home and finally get to write about Ben Willig. Ben came as a recommendation to us from one of our very close friends who he had helped purchase an apartment as well. In a nutshell… TOP AGENT, TOP CLASS SERVICE!! That’s what you can expect from him and nothing less!! Very proactive, methodical and hardworking! Ben was extremely helpful, professional and responsive and knows the NY realtor market very well. We are the first time property buyers and with so many questions and reservations that we had, Ben guided us throughout the process in the most accommodating manner. He was ALWAYS kind and patient with us in explaining things in detail and the in the most simple way. Always honest and was never biased in his opinions. He loves his job to bits and that shows in the way he handles his work and clients with so much care. Without doubts, we are his clients for life and would recommend Ben to anyone looking to buy or sell their property. He is surely the very best real estate agent to work with in New York city!!

"Found a beautiful 1 bedroom for my girlfriend and I because of Ethan. We are from California and were originally very worried about finding a good place quickly in NYC. Ethan had multiple suggestions for us on the first day we worked with him. Although our finances weren''t what the landlord had hoped for, he helped us secure our apartment within one day!"

This is a review for Mr. Harry Ego-Aguirre at Anchor''s Associates. I met Harry when I was looking for an apartment in NYC. He is an honest, hard-working man who takes care of his clients'' interest. Harry walked me through the very complicated NYC real estate market and explained everything very clearly. Then, he spent many hours showing me different properties till I chose my place. Since then, I know whom to contact for anything related to real estate.

I was fortunate enough to have Ross Vesselinov as my broker. Initially, I was in a big rush to find an apartment since my lease was expiring soon. I found Ross online through nakedapartments.com and he quickly sent me an email to set up an appointment at my convenience. He also asked me what I was looking for in an apartment (i.e. amenities, rent, size) so he could tailor his search to my preferences. We met Saturday morning and he showed me roughly 10 apartments throughout Midtown over a span of 5-6 hours. It was obvious that Ross had really listened to what I was looking for because each apartment he showed me had some, if not most of my preferences. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I ended up signing a short term renewal lease at my current apartment. When I told Ross that I was no longer looking for an apartment, instead of being annoyed that he had wasted an entire Saturday, he told me that he understood things happen and that he would be more than happy to help in a few months. A few months later, I called Ross to help with my apartment search again. He remembered all of my preferences which made things much easier. He made himself available Saturday morning to show me around all day. The first building Ross took me to had everything I wanted and more. He really listened to what I was looking for and found a place that was perfect for me. He even met with me the following Saturday morning and patiently waited during the 1 hour lease signing to answer every question I had regarding the lease. I highly recommend Ross to anyone looking for a broker. I assure you he will go above and beyond to find you your next home.

Charles Gaeta was by far the best realtor I''ve ever worked with in the New York City. He was very responsive (responding to texts and emails at a moments notice any time of the day) and was very good at figuring out exactly what we were looking for even when we weren''t quite sure ourselves. For our first move into the city, he was the ideal realtor, not pushy, but always available, and incredibly knowledgable of what was available and possible within our budget. We will be calling him when next we need to move.

I had the pleasure of working with Belinda Cruz from anchor associates to find the perfect NYC apartment. I was very specific with my criteria and Belinda showed me various apartments within my budget and my criteria. She paid very close attention to all the details. She was also very patient with me even though I kept on changing my mind on which apartment I wanted so we had to visit some 2 times. I was also on a very tight timeline to find a place and move in and Belinda spend all day Friday and half day Saturday to make sure I found the perfect place. She responded to all my emails In an extremely timely manner and conducted herself with professionalism the entire time. She also followed up even after my lease was signed, which was great. I am really glad I got to work with her and I definitely recommend her to anyone searching for the perfect place in NYC :)

To the Management of Anchor Associates and their respective clients, I am writing to give Tony Segno my highest recommendation. Tony possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent senior agent and manager: he knows his market extremely well; he is diligent, responsive, and very patient with his clients. Tony is both very professional and personable while clearly taking pride in doing a good job. In my particular case, I was in need of an apartment quickly and Tony made everything happen swiftly and efficiently so that I could move in quickly. It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job than Tony in his role.

I can highly recommend Nick Goforth as a reliable agent to find the perfect place in the city! We were looking for an apartment but were not living there yet and needed help lining up suitable options that had what we wanted on our list. Nick was quick to reply to emails and calls, as well as calmed my fears. He was able to schedule many apartments to look at that met our criteria and walked us through a well-organized day all mapped out by Nick. It was a painless experience and we settled on a great place in a neighborhood we did not yet know, but really liked. I was happy we kept an open mind because Nick had some great new ideas for us to find us the right place in the right location.

I found Amy through one of her listings online. After talking with Amy, I decided on a two year lease of a 1bd instead of a furnished short-term rental based on my situation and money saving purpose. Amy was very responsive, extremely professional and has profound knowledge about Manhattan''s real estate market. I could feel that she was working for my best-interests. I would absolutely recommend Amy to anyone, you''ll be in good hands!

There are a lot of brokers in New York and I had the pleasure of finding and working with a great one. Diane Magnuson paid close attention to our requirements and was very proactive in finding and vetting apartments for us. My family and I were relocating from the Middle East, which took the usual stress of moving to a new level, especially with the time difference. We woke up each morning to new listings, photos and Diane's personal assessment of the pros and cons of each apartment. She has integrity, is honest and throughout was very responsive. We were using several brokers and she stood out head and shoulders above the rest. I highly recommend her.

Aleks was diligent in finding an apartment for us. She showed a variety of apartments differing in size, price, location, and layout. She also was willing to meet multiple times when it was convenient for us. Not only was she on top of it, she was very friendly and it was easy to communicate what we were looking for. I recommend Aleks!

Belinda Cruz was extraordinarily helpful with my search for a midtown rental. She is a true professional. Here''s why: -she responded to questions and requests very promptly -she listened to my requirements and only showed me apartments that filled them -she appeared to have ongoing, positive relationships with staff at the properties we saw -she was extremely detail-oriented and has an excellent memory -she was very organized--we saw 10 or so units in two afternoons -she identified a very affordable unit in the right location and we saw it right away; I applied quickly and she was very helpful through the application process -since I returned home, I wired funds and she walked my deposit checks to the management office herself on a very rainy afternoon Need a real estate broker in NYC? Contact Belinda at Anchor.

Belinda Cruz was a pleasure to work with when my roommate and I needed to find an apartment. I would recommend her to anyone! She was very professional, accommodating and a friendly personality. She took a genuine interest in what we were looking for and guided us through the apartment hunting process since we were new to living in Manhattan. Belinda was very thorough in answering all of our questions/concerns and guided us through every step of the process. My roommate and I are very happy with our apartment and we couldn''t have done it without Belinda''s help!

Nicholas Goforth was amazing. As someone who was entering the New York rental market for the first time and coming from Canada, sifting through the terminology and plethora of available rentals looked like an extremely daunting undertaking. Then trying to figure out what neighborhoods were best and where I could get the most for my money was a whole other set of considerations. Nicholas'' gently and consideratley explained the market, set up all of the viewings and even made me look at some units that I had already excluded from my search. He was right!!! By showing me the differences between where I thought I wanted to live and where he thought I would be able to get more of what I wanted at the best prices available, within a matter of hours I went from confused to accommodated!!!! I am very excited about the apartment Nicholas directed me to and I am looking forward to making it my home over the coming weeks. I highly recommend Nicholas if you need help finding the right place for you to live!!

I had the pleasure of working with Laurena Patarkatsi on my apartment search. I was new to NYC and apartment hunting, and was considering 3 different living arrangements (3 man, 2 man and solo) with very different price ranges. I couldn't have asked for a better broker - Laurena was extremely patient and warm, and really took my budget into account. She was careful not to show things to me that were out of my range and was accommodating when my living arrangements changed (about 3 times throughout the course of 3 days). She was not at all pushy and really took the time to figure out exactly what I was looking for. She answered all my questions about the city, gave me tips on where to go out/eat/work out and was fun to hang out with for the 3 days we spent apartment hunting. I had recently graduated and didn't understand the apartment search process, but Laurena guided me through it, and, after showing me a ton of awesome apartments, found me a place I love! She has my highest recommendation.

I worked with Nick Campbell a few weeks ago when my roommate and I were trying to decide if we should resign our lease on the UES. We wanted something a little further down but didn''t want to increase our rent while compromising on space. He took all of our requests into account and did a great job of showing us what was available for our price range and needs. He was really friendly, honest, and knew exactly what he was talking about. My roommate and I felt like we learned a lot about the current market and despite the fact that we decided to stay in our current apartment, we''ll definitely use Nick again in the future

Ryan McGuirl recently helped my roommates and I find a new apartment and we were more than impressed. He was great!! Extremely accommodating and flexible when it came to appointments and viewing apartments. We didn''t feel like he was "selling" it to us, he genuinely was trying to help us find the best fit. Very helpful in answering all of our questions, and also very responsive to all emails and texts. Ryan is clearly someone who takes his job seriously and will do whatever it takes to make sure his clients are happy. Nothing bad to say, we had a great experience.

My roommate and I worked with Jimmy Fernandes when searching for our apartment and had a great experience. Not only did we find the apartment we had been searching for (location, space, price), we also felt comfortable throughout the entire process. Jimmy was very conscious of our budget and never pressured us - he was extremely professional and easy to work with! During our lease signing Jimmy was extremely patient and helpful - he answered all of our questions and advocated for us. We would definitely recommend working with Jimmy when searching for an apartment in NYC!

If you want an all-purpose professional broker than A.K. is your guy. A.K. was very helpful in negotiating the deal we wanted, working with our desired location parameters, budget, and was a text or call away if we had any questions. Save the time and use him as your sole broker, I would recommend him to anyone in my network as well as refer him in the future.

Last year, we worked with Helene Campbell. She understood our needs, mapped the city and helped us find the perfect apartment. Now I walk to work everyday and remain very grateful to Helene for finding me a diamond, that I couldn''t find on my own. This year, we were looking for an upgrade we called her again and she was up for the challenge. She found us great options, and restricted the search for broker fees paid (by landlord). Helene thank you for looking out for us!

This is a review of my experience with Laurena Patarkatsi. Laurena did a wonderful job of helping my girlfriend and I find our first apartment together. She was professional, always prompt, and showed us a great variety of apartments in a great variety of Manhattan neighborhoods. When we picked our apartment, she helped us fill out the forms and even went so far as to pick up our deposit check from my girlfriend at her office and drop it off with the management company. We would definitely work with Laurena again and would absolutely recommend her to any friends looking for a broker.

My husband and I moved from the California because of a new job and the thought of finding an apartment in Manhattan was extremely stressful. Jonathan took the stress out of the search and actually made it enjoyable. We initially contacted him for an apartment on the Upper East Side but after showing us a few apartments, Jonathan listened to our needs and realized that Midtown West was our best option. After only 2 days of working with him we rented a two bedroom in a luxury high-rise and he didn''t charge us a broker fee! We would definitely recommend Jonathan to anyone looking to move!

I've been meaning to write a review but just haven't had the chance to. But Laurena Patarkatsi definitely deserves a review so here I finally am!! My boyfriend and I decided to look for a 1 bedroom to move out from a studio. I filled out the contact form on Anchor's website and received a call from Laurena shortly after. Mind you, this was a Saturday so I was really surprised to be receiving a call! She asked for some more details of my needs/wants in the search, and said she would be able to show an apartment the next day (on Sunday!) I was already wow'ed from that point. Working with Laurena was such a pleasure! She's so sweet, and although it's impossible to completely negate the stress of moving, she definitely helped make the entire process as painless as possible. One of the major problems that I had going into the apartment search is that it's really difficult (close to impossible) for me to be able to take off work or leave any earlier than 6, and I struggled looking for realtors that would be able to show me places after that. But Laurena was very accomodating and coordinated everything to be able to show the apartments after work hours! There were so many days where she was out showing places to us until 8 or 9pm, and I really really appreciated that. We also had quite a few restrictions coming into the search with a relatively low budget, and it seemed hard being able to find a decent place but Laurena proved us wrong!!! She showed us a lot of different places over a course of a few weeks and was very patient with us despite how indecisive we were being. I really appreciated how she didn't push us to make a decision and was very understanding of our needs. Wen we finally decided on a place, she was again very helpful throughout the entire application process. The place we got isn't big (what can we expect living in the Big Apple?) but I am still happy with where we ended up. I am so happy to have been able to work with Laurena, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is going through the apartment search process!! Definitely 5 stars :)

Ethan was very helpful during my apartment searching in New York. I relocated from California and I knew that finding a good place to live in Manhattan could be a nightmare. Ethan totally understood all these. We met the afternoon after we first contacted each other in the morning. Ethan was very professional. He answered all my questions and concerns with great patience. He already got a list of targets ready according to my requirement. His careful preparation turned out to be very useful. I made my decision that afternoon and this just was my second day in New York. After that he negotiated everything, including telling the leasing company to get the apartment ready before it was initially scheduled. He also helped me greatly in getting all documents ready. Eventually all worked out smoothly. I moved in before the storm. I highly recommend Ethan as an agent. His profound knowledge in leasing/real estate fields and his nice personality guarantee a nice outcome.

Ask for Sebastian! One word, awesome! Sebastian was able to find me my dream home TWICE! Even when working under strict deadlines he was able to deliver. When looking for brokers in NYC it''s hard to find someone who is honest and hard working and that''s why when it''s time to find another home I will be calling Sebastian. :)

My roommate and I worked with agent Drew Grombala to find our first apartment in New York! We could not have had a better experience. In addition to being professional, prompt and knowledgeable, Drew really took into account all of our priorities and what we were looking for in our first big move, including budget, neighborhood, commute to work, etc. He showed us a variety of options, and we ultimately ended up in our first choice apartment. Overall, Drew made this process incredibly smooth, and stress-free. I would absolutely use him again and plan on recommending him to all of my friends that will be moving in the coming months. Thank you again Drew!

- Gaby C. 1/28/15 Yelp.com,   February 10, 2015
 
This review is for Drew Grombala - I cannot say enough good things about him. I spoke with him on a Wednesday afternoon and by Thursday morning he had not only put together a list of viable apartments but also set up the appointments allowing us to begin looking first thing in the morning. That initial batch ended up including my perfect apartment, the lease for which I just signed yesterday (he accompanied me for support). From the moment I met up with him, he put me at ease. He has an easy going attitude, which is necessary in tense situations, but is also completely on top of every detail. Throughout the scouting and signing process, he dealt with me, my schedule, my boyfriend, my guarantor - all seamlessly. I would - and will - recommend him to anyone and everyone who finds themselves in the typically unpleasant situation of having to find a new NYC apartment. Thanks, Drew!

This review is for Drew Grombala. From the over-the-phone introduction to our in-person appointment, Drew was professional, helpful and genuine while showing us the options in our price range. He was extremely prompt in answering our questions and proactive in finding listings for us to view - I would absolutely use his service again and recommend him to friends.

NIck Campbell was very responsive, friendly, and helpful. We saw a bunch of apartments on a Saturday at the last minute, and even when we didn''t end up choosing one of the ones he showed us he still emailed us to give us tips about the neighborhood and moving in. We couldn''t have asked for better service! He comes highly recommended and we will definitely use him for our next move.

- Ani Z. 1/24/15 Yelp.com,   February 10, 2015
 
Nick Campbell was the most helpful real estate broker I dealt with in my very stressful move to New York (I went through several). He responded to emails promptly and gave detailed answers. He also didn''t try to rush the process at all, which was nice because almost every other broker I dealt with did. You don''t want to rush it! He''s your guy if you want some authentic advice on moving to Manhattan. Highly recommend.

- Will S. 1/25/15 Yelp.com,   February 10, 2015
 
Nick Campbell was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating. I''ve never lived in NYC before and wasn''t really sure where to start, what neighborhood to live in, what I wanted in an apartment or what I could afford. Nick helped me navigate all of that. I will definitely look to use him again in the future and will be recommending him to anyone I know looking for an apartment. Thanks Nick!

My roommates and I worked with Ryan McGuirl to find our dream apartment -- and he was absolutely amazing to work with! This is the second time we''ve used Ryan as our realtor, he does not disappoint. I would recommend him whole heatedly to anyone in search of a realtor. Ryan was hard working and diligent in finding us the best apartment for us. He went above and beyond to make sure our new place met each and every one of our requirements. Ryan is always on time to appointments and was so flexible working around our busy schedules to find time for apartment viewings. Ryan is a loyal and dependable realtor that will always put your priorities first and not rest until you''ve found your dream home!

- Paige T. 1/22/15 Yelp.com,   February 10, 2015
 
Ryan McGuirl got me a great apartment, very easy and simple process. Extremely transparent throughout the whole process, very trustworthy broker. Would highly recommend.

Erica Orlando was superb. I recently accepted a position in NYC and had barely 2 weeks to find a place and arrange my move up from DC. I had no clue how the system worked in Manhattan and ended up scheduling a number of appointments with a ton of brokers, so I feel like I can speak from a place of experience. She showed me exactly the kind of places that I wanted -- all incredibly spacious and in some generally popular (read expensive) neighborhoods that matched all my must haves and fell just in my price range. She was extremely attentive and delightful to spend time with -- something you must do when traversing the city from one listing to another. And even though I ended up going with a listing that I had seen through another broker, she was still incredibly understanding and supportive and truly made me feel that she was only interested in me finding the right apartment, not about earning her fee. If you're new to the city and don't have a broker that you know you can trust, take my word for it and go with Erica!

Posted on Yelp: Gilad Paz is the man!! Making my first move to New York I was a bit anxious about finding a place in a neighborhood that would suit me. Gilad managed to take a stressful, daunting process and make it enjoyable...in a snowstorm no less. I wasn''t sure exactly what I was looking for, so I was only able to provide vague criteria. Gilad was never pushy or impatient, and amazingly was able to take my paltry feedback and find me the exact unit I was looking for within the hour. He was very efficient in processing feedback from the first few units we looked at...it wasn''t long before he knew exactly what I wanted. His knowledge of the city and the available inventory was extremely impressive. He''s a true pro and a great asset to Anchor Associates. Thanks again Gilad!!

Posted on Yelp: Gilad Paz made finding my new apartment such an ease. I was dreading finding a great apartment that I was looking for within my budget but Gilad tried his best and I found it! Definitely let him know what you really think about the apartments you see, he just wants you to be happy with your new place. And if you do find it and it''s slightly above your budget, he''ll go out of his way to make it work. Also, he''s not pushy and sketchy like other brokers. Super friendly and was a pleasure to work with!

Diane was an amazing broker. She was extremely attentive and found me the perfect studio apartment. Despite my difficult schedule (only had 2 days in the city to look), she was able to get a lot of viewings that really let me look at my options. She was very responsive and made me feel like I was the only person she was helping. Not only did she respond to my emails extremely quickly, she seemed to really care about finding me the perfect place. I would highly recommend Diane to anyone.

Zack did a great job showing my husband and I apartments in New York City. He was very compliant with our budget and requirements. He even showed us apartments under our budget, which i have never experienced, ever, with a broker in NYC. He was very easy to work with, and overall a genuinely, nice guy. The apartments he showed us were great as far as city apartments go, the only reason we did not go with one of his was because we found an apartment at the last minute in Brooklyn which was by some close friends and Zack does not specialize in Brooklyn. I would, without any doubt, use Zack again if we were looking to move back into Manhattan.

- Rachel K. On Naked Apartments!,   January 27, 2015
 
Marija Erjeldan was just wonderful to work with. After one conversation she knew exactly what I was looking for, and found countless good options. She was friendly, and so accommodating. Furthermore, most brokers seem to know 1 or 2 neighborhoods well. We kept changing what neighborhood we were interested in, and she had a good grasp of all areas. I feel really lucky to have gotten to work with her, and would recommend her to anyone looking in Manhattan.

From the beginning Zack was very responsive to all emails and text. After meeting with him the first time, I really felt comfortable with him and I felt that he knew EXACTLY what my boyfriend and I were looking for. He never pushed me into looking at places that were outside of my budget or location. He took a day showing my boyfriend and I all over the UES, showing us ton of one bedrooms and the area. After just a few outings we ended up finding a place in a great location, it was a very quick and easy application process with Zack, he was easy to get a hold of to answer any questions we had. VERY organized and knowledgeable about the area. I would strongly recommend him!

Posted on YELP: Stumbled by total chance into this agency and landed in the hands of Gilad. I was looking for a city apartment and had zero experience in the process (Because trust me there is one!) Gilad was a voice on the phone to me. I had never met him but what a great listener he was. He took me to only buildings and apartments that met my criteria. As a result of looking at several options, I am now settled and quite happy in my city digs. Shout out to Gilad!

I''d highly recommend A.K. Ibrahim- he''s extremely professional, was always on time, and adapted to what I was looking for in an apartment, not to mention that he was also very personable. If I could do it all over again, I would''ve cut the time spent using multiple brokers and have just used him instead. He showed me numerous available properties on the market and was an excellent negotiator on our behalf. If you''re looking to close in on a place soon in an efficient manner, then A.K. is your guy.

My husband and I contacted agent Ross Vesselinov a week or two before Christmas in the hopes of finding an apartment and signing a lease during our visit to NYC over Christmas. We currently live in California and needed to find an apartment in Manhattan FAST! Fortunately we found Ross online and got really lucky! After I gave Ross my wish-list of must-haves, Ross skillfully narrowed down the neighborhoods and the apartment buildings to show us in our two day window. Thanks to his in-depth knowledge of the different NYC neighborhoods and their proximity to the subways we needed to be near, we finally decided on our next home. 15 mins from Times Sq in a fabulous state of the art high-rise building close to everything....and....it included all the items in my wish-list! I highly recommend Ross - and not only as a realtor but because he''s easy to connect with and he listens!

I recently met with Nick to "pick his brain" about real estate opportunities in NYC and was very impressed with both his knowledge and the passion he has for his work. He certainly comes across as a very personable individual who works hard and puts his client's interest above his own. I would certainly recommend Nick to family, friends, or anyone looking to purchase or rent in NYC. Thanks Nick. E.D.

As if the holiday season isn't stressful enough, I was in a time crunch to find a place in NYC. Thanks to a recommendation from a friend, I called up Nick. Thank goodness for that. He took care of everything. He was available 24/7 if I had any questions. He found me an amazing loft that fit the bill and was able to negotiate the price to fit the budget! The process went seamlessly thanks to him ,not to mention he was a super fun guy to work with. I don't usually write reviews but he deserves this one . Will definitely be going to him in the future with any real estate needs !

I spoke with Nick about the landscape of the NYC real estate market in 2015, and he was very knowledgeable. He explained to me the differences between condos and co-ops, told me which areas are the best areas to buy for an investment, and gave me a detailed account of what I can expect going into a transaction. While I do not know if I will be purchasing anything in the near future, if I were to do so, I would definitely use Nick as my broker. Thanks again for all your help!

Keida Dizdari is the best! I''ve meet several brokers and she is the most professional, responsible, and the one you can rely on. As an international student, it is more difficult to find an apartment; yet Keida helped me found a perfect one. The first time we meet, she tried to understand my situation and my priorities, later on after seeing more apartments, it get closer to the one I''m looking for. I feel so lucky to meet her!

This review is for my recent experience with Harry Ego. Moving apartments in Manhattan is typically a nightmare with so many different options, floor plans, prices, locations, etc. but Harry helped transform the experience and turn it from an enormous undertaking into a simple task. It started when I responded to an apartment listing on one of the main apartment sites. I was less than thrilled about the space once I saw it for myself. Instead of just ending the engagement after the showing, he asked us some very thorough questions to get an idea of what I was looking for. It''s not that uncommon for this to happen, but Harry''s knowledge of the market and the apartments available really showed when he came back with several listings that met all of my criteria. I don''t typically give a second chance after having a bad first experience but Harry''s confidence helped sway my opinion and give a few of his new listings a shot. The very next apartment wasn''t even on the market for a full day when he brought us to see it. Not 5 seconds had passed before I was sold and knew that he found my new home. It met all of the criteria I had laid out (some of which might not have been so easy) and I''m now in love with the new place. Unlike many other brokers and agents, Harry treated me like a family member. - He took the time to listen to my needs and only show me apartments that met them - Showed up on time to all appointments - Acted very professional in all of our engagements - Was very clear and precise on all of the required information that was needed during the application process - Gave recommendations for trusted moving companies and temporary wall builders Added Bonus: since we were able to make a quick decision on an apartment that was new to market and apply within 24 hours, he was kind and gave us a reduced price on the fee. Being that Manhattan is one of the most expensive cities, incentives like that always make for a happy client. It was an amazing experience to work with Harry. I highly recommend his services for anyone who''s burdened with moving in Manhattan.

Deresia Williams is the greatest agent on the planet! As a first time homebuyer I wasn''t entirely sure what to expect. Deresia made the process less stressful. First of all she not only listened, but heard and understood what I was looking for. Then she set about finding the right house that would fit both my needs and budget. She was available to answer all of my questions; her responses were honest and knowledgeable. Deresia made sure that I saw every house that I wanted and had suggestions for some that I hadn''t thought about. in fact, the home that I bought was one that she had suggested. How is that for a real estate agent - Awesome! I would highly recommend Deresia of Anchor Associates 12/28/2014

"Ross Vesselinov helped us every step of the way from start to well after finish to even go as far after we were settled in to check in and make sure everything was going smoothly with our transition into our new place. He genuinely cares about the tenants being as happy and as comfortable as they can be with their apartment. One of the nicest and most genuine people I have met since I moved to NYC. Very professional and personable. We couldn''t have had a better experience with a broker."

I found Sebastian Murawski while looking for an apartment in NYC on Craigs List. All the apartments offered by Anchor Associates looked great on line and when I inquired about a six month lease term, Sebastian went above and beyond his own listings with Anchor, (who required a one year lease term), and found me a great apartment with beautiful Hudson River views for the six month term I required! He is an exceptional person who will do his very best for you and I highly recommend giving him a call if you need an apartment in NYC! He is wonderful to work with and met my husband and I on several occasions to see several apartments that would work for us. He managed all the paperwork and worked with the building management to get the place partially furnished for us too. I can''t say enough positive things about our experience with Sebastian and Anchor Associates.

We highly recommend Carol - she was a pleasure to work with and was very efficient in getting back to us on all of our questions. Thanks again Carol!

I worked with Emily to rent an apartment in a high-rise building in Manhattan and could not be any more pleased with the experience! She was immediately responsive to my introductory e-mail and met me that afternoon to show me an apartment that I had inquired about. Once I had decided on a place she went above and beyond what I would expect of a broker to make sure I got the place I wanted, handling things on my behalf when I was traveling on business. Emily was very professional, courteous and hard working, and I would recommend her to anyone in need of a new place!

- Ben F.,   December 18, 2014
 
Looking for your first New York apartment can be intimidating. Emily was so helpful and worked so hard to find all the best places in my price range. She was very easy to talk to and to express how I felt about each listing. Making each place better and better as the day went on. After looking at multiple listing we narrowed it down to 2 great places. I made the decision and Emily was there to help fill out all the paper work. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an apartment. She truly cares about all your apartment wants and needs.

- Stephanie S.,   December 17, 2014
 
Emily's level of professionalism was nothing short of astonishing. I am a licensed real estate agent in New Jersey, so when i was moving into the city my standards for who was going to help me was very high. I spoke with and even met 5 different agents from various brokerages. none of them even compare to Emily. She has great relationships with many different building managers, great knowledge of the best areas and is quick and pleasant on all fronts. I am completely happy with the services and would recommend her to any of my friends or family.

My wife, daughter and I live in Ithaca, NY and just bought an apartment in Manhattan. Ben Willig was our broker and I can recommend him without hesitation. Ben is a thorough professional and he leads a fine team of knowledgeable real estate agents. We had never bought property in NYC before and were anxious that it would be a very difficult and complicated process. It was indeed a rather involved process, but Ben’s knowledge of the market and his affable nature made it a pleasure. Ben listens very intelligently to what his clients want, and I found that he got to understand exactly what we were looking for. He asks good questions, gets to know your tastes, and works within the budget you give him. If you change your mind (and most people do), you will find Ben adapting very quickly to your new ideas. Since he knows Manhattan’s neighborhoods well, and since the qualities of a neighborhood make a huge difference to how you will respond to your new home, Ben will not waste your time showing you places that may look good in pictures but will not give you the kind of home you want. We looked at apartments in a number of neighborhoods and ended up purchasing one in Lincoln Square; both the neighborhood and the apartment are perfect for us! Ben’s team made the process of getting a mortgage, doing the paperwork for the coop, and other related things, extremely simple. That was especially helpful since we don’t live in the City and had to do some things from a distance. And when we knew we needed a good contractor, we again asked Ben and he made some excellent recommendations to us. We found all of his recommendations to be good and reliable, and it was so convenient to interview and choose one person from the list of names he gave us for every category. All in all, Ben is superbly professional -- amiable, intelligent, and sophisticated. You will enjoy working with him. He will make you feel comfortable and let you explore things at your own pace. (And while you are looking at apartments or houses in the City, don’t forget to ask him about his favorite restaurants. We found a couple of extremely good North Indian restaurants because of him – and so many Indian restaurants in NYC are underwhelming at best!)

Dear Milan, I am so glad a close friend suggested very strongly that I call Anchor and make sure I spoke with you, as she knew I was having difficulty with my decision to leave my apartment after 31 years, along with the painful process of downsizing. Your professionalism, your empathy in choosing the apartments I looked at, and your suggestions on visualizing the rooms and furniture made the process so much easier, and I am very grateful for your help. Your following up and remembering details helped keep the momentum going. It will be my pleasure to recommend you, and Anchor, to friends who need a good, professional guide in choosing a place to live. And the midtown location of your offices is great! Thank you, Milan, for your help. Best regards, Collette Richardson

We had a great chance to work with Diane Magnuson. She is the best broker in town! We just arrived in NYC from Paris and we didn''t know the city before. In 4 days we have signed our lease. Diane helped us find THE perfect appartement, she has great qualities, specially she knows to listen to her clients and help them find the best! She is helpful, very nice, and always gives you tips of any kind. Also she answers so quickly to your mails, so you always know what''s going on, she is a great hard worker! Diane has a great energy and don''t give up. We loved working with her, we felt welcomed and cared ! Thank you so much Diane ! A & M

Diane Magnuson was great to work with. Thorough and enthusiastic, she made it easy as possible to rent in New York. Without her, it would have been a much bigger pain than it was. She was always prompt, thorough, and good-humored. After hearing bad stories about brokers in NY, she struck me as very trustworthy throughout the process. There were some hitches in signing the lease (I'd never signed a lease in NYC before - it's easier in Chicago and L.A.), all of which she helped work through - instead of exchanging a lot of emails with the building back-and-forth, I just sent stuff to her. Even though she has a lot of energy, she's not a high-pressure broker; that would not have worked for me. Highly recommended.

This review is for Chris Boggs. I''m in the process of moving from San Francisco to New York City and he made it completely seamless. My goal was to have a lease signed before I got to NYC and be able walk right into my own place. Every other leasing agent, broker, landlord, family member, and friend told me that was impossible to because in NYC landlords will only rent people that come see the apartments in person. I had my girlfriend reach out to Chris and he responded within minutes to set up a time to see the apartment. I followed up with Chris the next day and he was nothing responsive. If he didn''t know the answer he got it for me within an hour at the most. On multiple occasions he responded to emails I sent late at night my time and on the weekends. I would highly recommend Chris, he was amazing!

I had an excellent experience using Eyal for my apartment hunt! I am a New Yorker with very little time outside of my work schedule. Knowing that most apartments are available for viewings during normal work hours, I needed to enlist a broker that would narrow down my priorities and not waste my time. Eyal was very flexible around my schedule and a pleasure to work with. He was also very helpful in translating lengthy lease contracts to terms I understood. Highly recommended! JESSICA BIAGIONI

I was dealing with Chris Boggs in searching for a convertible 3 bedroom apartment in Manhattan he waexcellent he zeroed in on the needs of my wife and I and he came up with the right place he knew exactly what to look for after patiently figuring out what we needed ,therefore much time wasn't wasted and the stress factor was minimized on top of all this he was extremely patient and did not resort to pressure tactics which I abhor. I am a tough businessman-and he was by far the best broker we indulged because he took an interest in the client I would highly recommend chris.

I spent ten days pounding the pavement looking for an apartment in a very specific area in New York. Fabiana was one of the most professional agent I worked with. She arrived with a document from the NY Department of State which protects tenants'' rights and gave me a copy. When I put in an application, she followed up diligently (responding to messages at 11 pm)and gave me a favorable response the following day. I truly recommend her services to anyone looking for an apartment in New York.

Fabiana was completely professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Communication was always prompt and concise. Though an apartment was ultimately not rented from her, that is not a reflection on her, and I would not hesitate to work with her again.

Posted on YELP: Gilad Paz will put your interests ahead of desire to quickly close a deal. He will tell you when to walk away and when to push harder. He works tirelessly to help meet your requests and as another commenter adds will check in on you after you''ve settled. Gilad understands that moving is stressful. He will help ease your stress and find you the place that you''re looking for. He helped my girlfriend and I find a place in Chelsea and we could not be happier.

I worked with Helene Campbell on finding my last apartment, and she was great. I would highly recommend her! She spent many hours taking me around to several apartments in various areas of the city. She was able to pick up on things I liked and didn''t like, and then steer me in the right direction. She was very responsive and dedicated. You feel like you''re the only one she working for even though I know she has many things going on! She was always pleasant and it was a great experience.

Holly Harnsongkram may be called a real estate agent, but she is really in the happiness business... at least for me. Finding the right place to live was a crucial factor in my happiness when I moved to New York after 25+ years in London. Holly listened very carefully to what I said I was looking for, and showed me only places that fit my requirements. Having lived in Europe herself, she is especially good with people moving from overseas; during our time together, she gave me lots of information about the New York rental market, pointed out charming elements of the neighbourhoods we were visiting, and steered me away from neighbourhoods where I wouldn't have been happy. Every time we met, she was extremely well organised, efficiently setting up appointments, keeping to my schedule, and staying within my budget. She was tenacious, determined to find me a place I would love, patient with me as I wavered on what I was looking for, and always cheerful and fun to be with. In addition to her listening skills, and her excellent taste in apartments, Holly is a skilled negotiator, guiding me calmly and expertly through the lease/contract phase of my search. If I ever move again within New York, I wouldn't want to work with anyone but Holly. She is the best of the best!

Nick Campbell was excellent! He was recommended to us by friends who had success working with him, and my roommate and I had a similarly great experience. He was extremely patient with us and worked hard to answer our millions of questions. He didn''t make us feel rushed in making a decision and was very easy to communicate with via text or phone calls. He spent a lot of time with us looking at apartments and talked with us about the pros and cons of different apartments like a real person--didn''t give us a lot of the sleazy sales-talk most NYC brokers feed you. Overall a great experience and I would definitely recommend Nick to anyone else!

Dear Natalia, Just want to thank you for absolutely everything. I just can''t say enough to thank you for all you did to help me find an apartment especially at a time when I was beginning to despair. Way above and beyond the call of duty. I know I was a hard case! But you knew from the get go what I was looking for. I am truly and deeply grateful. Your talents, charm and warmth made the search bearable and short. Thanks a million for your expertise, high professional attitude and your big heart in seeing this through to the end. Thanks to you, I now have a home in New York! Rita B.

I had the pleasure of working with Diane Magnuson this July. I was looking for a 3-bedroom apartment in Greenwich Village and the LES on a relatively tight budget and Diane was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, positive, and motivated throughout the process. Unlike other brokers I have worked with, I was able to contact her 100% of the time through emails and phone and she never gave up on our search. I was expecting the apartment hunting process to take much longer than it did due to the parameters I gave her, but she was able to find my new apartment within a week. I would definitely suggest using Diane as a broker!

- Elizabeth S. - August 2014 (Source: Naked Apartments),   November 13, 2014
 
We can''t recommend Diane enough. My wife and I were arriving from overseas on a Sunday night, and prior to arriving, Diane had ensured we knew all of the paperwork needed to make application a breeze. Diane was always very prompt in responding, only showed us apartments in our price range that were pet friendly, and was very helpful and friendly throughout the process. We ended up renting the first apartment she showed us, and started moving in two days after seeing it! If you need a new apartment - ask Diane for help!

It is a pleasure dealing with Mia. She is a very knowledgeable agent, always returns phone calls. She helped us to find our dream home. She is a professional, who will make sure to find exactly what you are looking for. We always recommend her to our friends and family.

We are a French couple who recently moved in NYC and we''ve had the chance to meet Derek at the beginning of our apartment search. Derek is a very nice person with a high sense of professionalism. As we were new in town, we were asking a lot of questions about the American housing market. Derek never spared efforts to explain it. He played a very important role in telling us the ins and outs of getting a flat in Manhattan. He carefully listened to our needs and expectations while showing us a variety of apartments. He took note of every single remark, positive or negative, we expressed after each visit. He was very keen to keep these reviews in mind for the next visits. While being very professional, Derek has great interpersonal skills that go way beyond his broker duty. This is certainly appreciated. We will definitely recommend Derek to anyone looking for an apartment here in NYC.

Posted on YELP!: Gilad Paz is an awesome! Not only has this guy helped us find the perfect spot in less than 24 but he constantly follows up and checks on us even after 1 month! I''ve moved every year and worked with multiple agents. I think I just found my permanent to go agent. Thanks Gilad!

Posted on YELP: Gilad was an excellent broker! He knew immediately what we were looking for and only showed us apartments that he thought we would be interested in. He was a pleasure to work with and found us our next home. Do not hesitate to use Gilad!

Ross Vesselinov was a pleasure to work with and is someone you can definitely trust. I would undoubtedly recommend him to anyone! He knew exactly what I was looking for in NYC, was very thorough, and showed me a variety of places. However, I ended up signing the first place he showed me. He was very accommodating and helpful throughout the processes and is still there for me should I have questions/concerns. He always had my best interest in mind, which I greatly appreciated, in a business that can get very competitive. Huge thank you Ross and keep up the good work!

- T.H.,   October 28, 2014
 
My roommate and I worked with Rossen Vesselinov to find our apartment. He was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. He listened to what we were looking for and showed the places that really fit our needs. He was both friendly and professional. He really understood what can work for us(pricewise & location wise & condition wise), and took us to look the apts over and over again until we made our decision. I would definitely recommend to work with Ross.

- Lara T,   October 28, 2014
 
Ross Vesselinov is the best broker I have ever worked with, ever! A situation came up and I had to find an apartment within two weeks. I was referred to Ross by a friend who had great apt search experience with Ross before -- and it proved that he''s right! Ross was so professional and really worked for client''s interest 24x7. Given that I had limited time to search, Ross spent 3 days with me showing all the best options within my budget, and he would send me the list the night before so I could take a look first and be more focused on our search the next day. I was pretty stressed out because of the time constraint, and initially I made a decision to rent an apartment which I didn''t really like. Ross seemed to read my mind and asked me if I felt comfortable in making the choice. I told him my concerns and Ross said, "Ok let''s see a couple more and find the one you like.". To be honest most of the other brokers would be happy to close the deal asap and move on. Ross was truly a professional and worked for client''s interest. And at the end, he did find me the perfect apartment that I like! Thanks Ross for finding me a home! I will definitely recommend Ross to anyone who needs to find an apartment!

It was our good fortune that Eyal Zabari was the only broker to promptly return our five phone calls to various brokers three months ago when we were interested in purchasing a studio apartment on the Upper West Side. He greeted us in his friendly manner and patiently showed us many different studio apartments, in the process revealing his thorough knowledge of the current residential real estate market in NYC. Through him we made an offer, which was rejected. Then we made an offer directly to the seller of another unit. No realtor involved. Our offer was accepted. We told Eyal of our move and thanked him for his time and for all he had taught us, which he graciously accepted. That deal fell through, and the unhappy result made us realize we needed a trusted and knowledgeable agent between us and the seller. The obvious choice was to go back to Eyal. He was absolutely great as he carefully guided two innocent suburbanites through the complexities of buying a Manhattan co-op. His patience and the countless hours he spent with us answering our questions, filling out forms, assembling the application package, and coordinating the whole complicated process, were nothing short of amazing. From all this you may rightfully assume we recommend Eyal Zabari most enthusiastically. Lynn & Dawes Potter

Being fresh from Australia I didn''t like the idea of paying a broker''s fee to rent an apartment. This meant Drew started behind the eight-ball. But, he quickly won me over with an easy going demeanor and by showing my wife and I amazing apartment after amazing apartment. Finding our apartment was an easy process thanks to Drew. Drew''s also a great bloke. No matter what broker you choose. You''re going to spending at a day walking NYC with them. With Drew you''ll not only find an apartment - but, you''ll have a good time doing it.

Ask for Matt Deiger as your broker. I have worked with several brokers over the years in this city & can sincerely say that Matt will be my broker for many years to come. His calm and professional demeanor make a stressful situation, like moving in NYC, into something very manageable. He consistently followed up with me and remained positive throughout the entire process. Even at the inevitable utter frustration phase of apartment hunting, Matt really came through. He was available at all hours, followed up witih me via phone call, text and email and was never 'overly persistent' or aggressive. My list of "must have's" was quite large and Matt pulled it off. It's obvious that Matt has developed special relationships with several management companies throughout the city. He was able to utilize such relationships for us to our best benefit -- Without me even asking! He delievered the good news that we were getting an 'out of budget' unit within our budget! We couldn't be happier & feel so lucky to have met Matt! We've already recommended him to my friends and advise you strangers to use him also!

I can not say enough as to how amazing Mia was to me and my family as we searched for the perfect place for us and something that would fit our budget. Mia was extremely patient and understanding to all of our needs and helped us understand what is the best for us. Mia cares for every client like it''s her own family and does not stop until they are happy, she is an amazing agent and an even more amazing person. If you are looking for an agent look no further then rite here you will surly not be disappointed! Thank you Mia for all you have done for us!

Mia is a hard working agent who will not stop until she satisfies her clients. There is no words to describe her dedication and persistence in everything she does. I have no doubt that she will make it very far and succeed in every area of her goals. No matter what your interests are she can find them for you. As for recommendation I would recommend any and everybody to her because she is simply the best !!!

I had a great experience with Mike Engstrom and I would highly recommend his services. The move to NYC and finding an ideal apartment caused me much anxiety but Mike made the process simple, enjoyable and fast. He is a knowledgeable, no pressure type of person, which is refreshing. The day after we met and viewed apartments, I was approved for a great apartment, exceeding my expectations. Great work Mike and Thank You again.

- Michael D.,   October 19, 2014
 
Michael Engstrom was fantastic to work with: smart, knows his stuff, good listener, committed to building relationships and creating win win solutions. I was able to find a new home within a day - after looking at a dozen properties, thanks to Michael''s excellent organizational skills and network of relationships as well as his updated knowledge about all the neighborhoods I was looking in. He also got me a fabulous deal as well so I ended up with a much nicer apartment and amenities than I expected and within my budget. I give him my highest recommendation and when I buy, I''ll definitely be calling Michael again.

- Darlene,   October 19, 2014
 
I had no luck trying to find a suitable apartment, when I managed to find one the owner decided not to rent it. But thankfully I then came across Anchor and contacted Michael and he was a great help. He introduced me to furniture rentals, was fast in e-mails reply. I told him what I needed and now I found a suitable apartment. Very thankful for his help!

I first contacted Emily, along with many others as I was in the process of emailing/calling everyone that had a semi decent apartment listing that fit my criteria. Most responded with a few quick words, showing little effort or interest in my buisness. Emily called and asked me a bunch of questions about what I was looking for. She was really personable, but also very eager to help me. However, what surprised me the most is when I finally met up with her she remebered every single thing I told her on the phone. She did her research, making sure to only show me apartments that were viable options. Emily showed me apartments at the bottom and top of my price range to ensure I understood what my money was getting me and to allow me to make an educated decision. Many of the brokers I met with only showed me apartments at the top of my budget to optimize their return. Some tried to con me into run down apartments with terrible management. Working with Emily was such a different experience then all the rest. Not only was she great at her job, she was genuinely looking out for my interests. When I finally found an apartment, she didn''t disappear. Emily was very willing to contact the management with any questions I had, she even helped me negotiate the lease. I was really busy with work, so it was nice to have some help. I would never have found the apartment I am in now without her. I would recommend her services to anyone.

We arrived in New York and began looking for no fee apartments and stumbled across Yuval''s listing. The reason we contacted him initially was because his listing was so robust - photos, building details and full disclosure. You already felt as if there wasn''t anything to hide. We met Yuval around the apartment building he was going to show us and he of course was early and incredibly friendly. He''s got a sincere personality and you genuinely feel like he wants to help you. We walked through 3 units that day and it was great. He gives you the information you need, while at the same time giving you space to look at the apartment. You don''t feel like he''s hovering and you don''t feel pressure. After we looked at a few more apartments, we decided we wanted to apply to one of the apts he showed us. He was very responsive via email and ensured we were taken care of when it came time for us to work with the buildings leasing coordinator. If you are looking for a no fee apartment, contact Yuval because he will show you true no fee apartments!

Holly Harnsongkram at Anchor helped me find a 1 BR apartment in a couple of days and then assisted in the final negotiations with the landlord''s property manager. I worked with several brokers simultaneously. Holly stood out because she listened carefully to my reactions to visits, worked diligently to show me other listings and let me call the shots. Her low pressure and efficient approach paid off for both of us - I found a place that I am happy with and she beat the other brokers hands down, all with a deferential, courteous and professional manner that is hard to find in NYC. Thank you Holly and Anchor Associates!

Amy was a great pleasure to work with. I relocated from CA recently. Amy''s knowledge about Manhattan''s rental market saved me lots of time and energy when finding the perfect neighborhood and apartment. I want to show my appreciation here and strongly recommend her to others who is in need.

This review is for Ross Vesselinov, the most awesome broker I have worked with. I moved to NYC recently. Since I was new to NYC and wanted to save money, I was looking for no-fee apartments. Then, since it took too much time, I contacted several brokers. I met two brokers before meeting Ross, but they just showed me apartments, which were over my budget. They just wanted to make more money. However, Ross was totally different. He asked my budget and showed all possible houses in many different places of NYC, which are within the budget and within 20 minutes from my work. He spent two whole days to show me around 20 apartments. Whenever he showed me apartments, he figured out what I like and dislike, and then showed me better ones. Finally, I got the one, which I liked in every aspect. He helped me till I finalized the contract. I recommend to work with Ross for finding apartments in NYC. I would recommend him to my friends in the future, and I will also work with him again next year.

I recently moved in to my new Brooklyn apartment. I was very stressed at the idea of moving and was so lucky to have met Randy Caddle who helped me in my search. He really put me at ease. I had a lot of requests and wasn''t familiar with many neighborhoods. His knowledge of Brooklyn areas and patient attitude really made my process 100 times better then I expected. I really didn''t have to worry, he brought many options to me and we were able to find a place fairly quickly. I highly recommend requesting to work with him if you need to move. He didn''t push any place on me which made me feel comfortable, it felt like a partnership to really find the place that was best for me.

From YELP: I highly recommend Gilad Paz and Anchor Associates in general - he made apartment hunting easy, quick and fun. Basically, he cares about you - which is ridiculously rare in the broker world. I was moving within Manhattan and had contacted a few other brokers who turned out to be unreliable/offering ''fake'' apartments online before turning to Anchor quite by accident. Gilad met me on time, has an extremely professional yet personable approach, and actually listened to what I wanted before touring 6 different apartments. He has an innate knack for finding apartments that fit your criteria AND can offer suggestions you might not have thought of, but probably will like. I was amazed at how much I liked each apartment we looked at, and many of them were under-budget. He consistently kept track of which ones I liked best and provided a sheet with all of them listed, with prices and details so I could remember. He truly wants to find the best apartment for his client - immediately after finding out a certain apartment was on the market and offering to pay half the broker fee, he called and we set up an appointment for the next day. He picked the earliest appointment they had to give me an upper hand on timing (it''s those little details that make you feel like he''s in your corner!), and I''m so glad he did. I ended up renting it, in the perfect location with everything on the ''wish'' list. Instead of fading into the background after sale like most brokers, Gilad attended the lease signing and caught a few typos I completely missed, suggested window treatment and painting companies, and even gave a celebratory gift of champagne. A very professional, nice, skilled, easy-going broker - absolutely recommended!

Only words of praise for Milan. After discussing with him our options at the building we were living in for the past 3 years, Milan advised us to extend our lease because of the market conditions which was not really in our favor, especially because we were looking to by this fall. We managed to negotiate a great renewal rate and extended our lease and are now in contract to buy our first home in Manhattan.

It was a pleasure to work with Samara, she was very informative, helpful and payed close attention to the kind of apartment I wanted.

From YELP: Gilad Paz was the best Real Estate Sales Agent. Not only he understood exactly what I was looking for since the beginning, but he actually took the time to walk around the city with me, waiting patiently for me to decide where to live. This is the type of service that literally blows your mind. I recommend him 110% So pleased with the service he provided!!!

I recently worked with Nick Campbell in finding an apartment. After having worked with a variety of other brokers in the past, it is clear that not only did Nick outperform the other brokers in terms of helpfulness and search efficiency, but he also maintained a level of courtesy and honesty that is extremely hard to find. He did his job very well - two thumbs up.

Fabiana was a pleasure to work with in helping my roommate and I find an apartment in NY. She responded promptly to an initial inquiry and arranged to have us view the apartment we were interested on in short order. Fabiana's responsiveness and flexibility is what called our attention. You don't find these qualities so easy with brokers. We enjoyed the chance to work with her and look forward to work with her in the near future. Do not hesitate and reach out to her in your search!

I spent one day seeing apartments with Mia, and I was very happy to work with her. Mia was efficient with our time and took me only to specific listings that I wanted to see, unlike other brokers who pushed me to see many listings before I even knew what they were. She listened very carefully to my needs and wants, and worked hard to find what I was looking for. She was very responsive, and even replied to my requests late into the evening. Finally, she was fun and pleasant to talk to--the kind of person with whom you don''t mind spending several hours traveling around the city! I highly recommend her as a broker. She made a very stressful process much more pleasant."

I worked with Ross Vesselinov and couldn''t be happier. He is genuine, very friendly and most importantly VERY patient. My 2 roommates and I were extremely selective about our preferences and he took all 3 of our opinions into consideration while showing us apartments. He was very flexible and worked around our schedules to show us places over the weekends. Ross showed us over 15 apartments and was very upfront about the ''fine print'' details for each of them, making the process very transparent. We never felt pressured to apply for any of the apartments he showed us and he did a great job of following up with us on the ones we were interested in. We now live in a beautiful place thanks to Ross! He negotiated an unbelievable deal for us and walked us through the entire lease signing process. He made the rather overwhelming task of finding a great apartment in NYC incredibly simple and I would definitely recommend his services!

I was referred to Rossen Vesselinov through a friend, and I have to say, working with him was overall a great experience. Ross definitely knew the ins and outs of the market and is a great broker. He was very patient with me through the whole process--answering any question I had no matter how dumb. Communication was easy and essential. He helped me figure out what exactly I wanted and then showed me what different parts of New York could offer me. In the end, the whole process was relatively stress-free and successful! I signed a lease on a great apartment and would indeed recommend Anchor Associates, and especially Ross, to anyone looking to move to New York.

We're very happy with our experience, Jonathan Biton did a great job to find the best place for us, he's very knowledgeable at what he does, explained everything very clearly to us, knows clearly what we're looking for, our needs,what we want and don't want, also he's very patient and very caring for his clients along the way. He is willing to negotiate on our behave to find the best deal possible, and we did ended up finding best place which satisfied our every needs. We just moved to New York from Canada, and just like what I said before, we are very happy with the experience, this guy is awesome, and we are willing to work with him without hesitation in the future.

After a month of searching for apts with shady brokers, a friend recommended Matt Deiger of Anchor Associates. From the first call Matt was on our side. He knew exactly what we were looking for and did not waste our time. He was extremely thorough, negotiated with the building and was definitely our advocate throughout the entire apartment search & renting process. My roommate & I are so happy with our new apt. Even our dog loves it! He found us the best apt that fit all of our needs & budget. He even brought the paperwork to our offices to make the process easy & seamless. I would recommend Matt to anyone new to NYC - he knows NYC real estate! Thanks again Matt!!!

9/23/2014 This review is for Carol Rodehau. She was an exceptional broker, very patient with my many questions regarding the apartment search. She was extremely knowledgeable and listened to exactly what we wanted and found the best deal. She over exceeded our expectations with our new apartment. We would be happy to recommend her to any of our friends and co workers searching for a broker and new home. Thanks again!

It was great to work with Mia as she through just a few conversations got a sense of what I was looking for. I met her just once when she showed me all the apartments she had found for me and I found the one I was looking for on that day. In essence, she saved me a lot of time by sorting out a wide spectrum for me in a single day. It was tiring but helped take decisions more quickly. She is extremely diligent about the process as well and told me upfront that it doesn''t make sense to meet and waste time unless I had all the documentation in process. This was very useful as it pushed me to know everything I needed and get them ready as quickly as possible. And the moment I had them, she took the step forward. She is also very honest and gave objective opinions on the apartments we saw. Overall, she has been a pleasure to work with.

If your looking for an apartment, try Anchor Associates. I don''t typically write yelp reviews, however, my experience dealing with Nick Goforth from Anchor Associates was so exceptional I thought that this was something that needed to be done. First off, aside from helping me find a dream apartment, he was very receptive to my needs and truly understood exactly what I was looking for in a place to live (I had a long list). His honesty was the first thing that stood out to me and was the reason I decided to do business with him. I had a flexible range of time to move out, either in a week or 5 months would have been fine for me. Nick told me that if I waited till the winter that I may be able to find apartments for slightly cheaper...no other agent I had spoken to told me that, most wanted to rush. Nick did however suggest that we check out a few apartments now so that I could see the inventory for my self, thus allowing me to be able to know what was out there and make an informed decision, whether to move now or move later. Nick was also extremely professional, he knew the market, he knew the buildings, he showed up on time and was responsive to emails/ questions and was also very accommodation to my viewing schedule. In the end the deal that Nick found me was so insane that I decided to sign now. It took one day with him for he to show me exactly what I was looking for. Looking forward to a move in a few weeks from now. There are still some genuinely good people in the world. Thanks, Nick!

We worked with Michael Engstrom who was extraordinarily helpful and interesting to hang with during the process. With Michael''s help we were able to find a larger than expected apartment, within our price range, and more overall amenities than we had expected. After we moved in, Michael twice checked in on us to make sure everything was good and if there was anything he could do to help. If you are in the market to rent or buy in NYC you should contact Michael first and see what he has to offer and/or what he can find with some digging.

As an entrepreneur it is difficult to show regular income and this is of course a major stumbling block (okay, an Everest) when looking to rent an apartment in NYC even for those willing and able to pay a year's rent up front. Michael Engstrom was very pleasant to work with, and instead of dropping me went out of his way to help me gather documentation to bolster my unusual case, and even worked with Insurent, the new renter's guarantee company, that I had not been successful with myself. The result is that I have a gorgeous new apartment in a brand new building, river views and all. I recommend Michael whether are an easy case or hard one. Mucho, mucho thanks, Mike!

7/21/2014 My wife and I worked with Michael Engstrom to find our new apartment in the Upper West Side. He was very informed about the neighborhood, showed us a great variety of units, and was very efficient and easy to work with. We are incredibly happy with our new place. Between the both of us, this was undoubtedly our best apartment search experience.

Yuval was super fast with his replies to my questions. He went out of his way to show me an apartment that just came on to the market at a late hour. Even though it didn''t fit my needs, I''m continuing to work with him as he''s the most honest and professional broker I''ve come across thus far. Thanks !! :)

Worked with Ryoko Tanaka, who was great--worked with our budget constraints, was super responsive, helpful, and the sweetest and most competent broker I (or my roommates) had ever worked with.

I am happy to recommend Yuliya to anyone who is seriously looking for a suitable and affordable place in the city and doesn't like to work with aggressive and " pushy " agents. Unlike some other brokers (and I worked with many), Yuliya is very honest and wouldn't promise you conditions that are not exactly there just to spark your interest. She had objectively described not only advantages but also disadvantages of the apartments to make sure that we are making informed decision

- Anna Kimelfield,   September 12, 2014
 
Hands down the best broker I''ve worked with. Very high level of integrity, professionalism, and an all around sweet person! Made the time to show me great properties and really took a lot of the stress out of the process. Highly recommended!

I got a job offer in NYC after finishing university in Toronto. I was initially worried about the relocation process and finding a suitable place to live. After realizing how crazy the rental market is in Manhattan, I decided to use a real estate agent to help me in my search. I got in touch with Anchor after reading all the great reviews, and they certainly lived up to it. I dealt with Emily Sarrat, and basically set up a date where I would drive down from Toronto to NYC and spend the day looking at apartments. I was able to communicate my budget and preferences, and have a discussion with Emily before setting out on our adventure. We viewed several apartments in different areas of the city, each time coming a little bit closer to what I wanted. Emily took my feedback seriously and helped me find a place I really liked. I ended up signing a lease that day, and was on my way back to Toronto with very little stress. After living in the apartment for a few months now, I have to say I am very happy with everything. Location is great, building is great and I have only good things to say. If you are looking for a trustworthy and honest group of people to help you find your new home, look no further. Dealing with Emily was great, I highly recommend her. She put absolutely no pressure on me to find a place or sign, did not rush me, and even took it a step further to make sure I was really happy with what I was doing before signing the lease! Thanks so much.

This is a fantastic real estate company. We had contacted Chris Balazs a month prior to our apartment search, and he was wonderful to work with. Since we were moving from England, it was really important to us to have good communication with our agent as we only had a couple of days to find an apartment and couldn''t check out the area before our flight from the UK. Chris was always quick to respond to our emails and he gave us all of the information we needed to submit our apartment applications and to get an apartment quickly. We spent a day apartment searching with Chris and he really understood what we were looking for, we saw lots of options that were great. Chris helped us through the process of getting our favorite apartment and we had the lease settled a couple of days later. I''ve heard it''s very difficult to navigate the real estate field in NYC, but Chris made everything so easy and the process went so smoothly. The ratings for Anchor are clearly high for a reason- they''re excellent to work with and really care about their clients. Chris was a great agent, and everyone else in the office was also really friendly so I am sure that apartment hunting with any of the Anchor agents would be a good experience too. I would recommend Anchor to everyone, they are excellent!!

Eddie was incredibly personable and professional. He listened to our list of must-haves and wants, and created a curated list of properties for us to see. When we saw something we didn''t like, Eddie used that as a way to further filter what he was showing us. We never felt like Eddie was wheeling and dealing, and actually really enjoyed our time with him. We would definitely recommend working with Eddie for your next search!

Eddie Wilk is hands down the best Broker in New York City. If you are in need of an apartment I highly recommend that you give him a call. This was my first time looking for an apartment in NYC and Eddie could not have been better at helping out. He was honest and showed me exactly what I wanted to see. He truly looks out for his clients and wants them to find their dream apartment unlike other brokers out there. He is also very enthusiastic and loves his job which makes it all for a better experience. I work in Finance which means my hours are horrible. Eddie was completely understanding and met me at any time that was convenient for me. He was extremely knowledgeable of every part of NYC along with LIC. When I found the place I wanted, he negotiated a better deal than I thought I could get. I am officially a lifetime client of Eddie’s and Anchor Associates. If you are looking for an apartment, Eddie Wilk is the man to call.

- Chris LaFuentes,   September 08, 2014
 
Eddie exceeded my expectations. He truly understood what I was looking for and went out of his way to make the process easier. He is dedicated, hard-working and most importantly honest. Working with him felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders! Alex Dickerson Eddie was extremely helpful and knowledgeable with searching for an apartment. This was my first time renting in New York and Eddie was great with information, timeliness, and with finding a decently sized apartment within my price range. It was great working with Eddie and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a place in NYC.

- Mounya S.,   September 08, 2014
 
Working with Eddie Wilk was an incredible experience. While finding an apartment in NYC is a daunting task, I quickly realized that finding an agent to work with was infinitely harder. The market is filled with sketchy individuals who utilize fake photos, listings and prices to lure you into contacting them. Eddie is as honest and legitimate as they come. He genuinely invests himself in the process of finding your new home. His ability to network and build relationships allows you to find the best units and negotiate the best prices possible. Regardless of the listings on file, I would seriously encourage you to contact Eddie as to what you are looking for. He will get the job done for you and turn a very stressful process into one you will thoroughly enjoy and want all of your friends and family to experience as well. Thank you again, Eddie!!!

Christine found the beautiful apartment in Williamsburg where I am now staying in less than two days which is amazing given how challenging renting can be in New York! Without her strong experience, contagious optimism, dynamism and extreme responsiveness (even late at night) during each phase of the (complex) process, I am sure I would not be today in this apartment that I like so much. I also really appreciated Christine’s congratulations card and gifts as well as the fact that she always made sure that everything was in order/making quick progress during my move that followed the signature of the lease.

I recently moved to the Murray Hill/Midtown East area thanks to the beautiful apartment Yuval helped me find. I had tried out two realtors from competing agencies prior to meeting Yuval and had negative experiences with both. These brokers only cared about making the sale and were playing games that wasted valuable time and money. Yuval was a breath of fresh air. He was extremely genuine, a great listener, accommodating to my busy schedule, and truly had my best interest at heart. He answered all texts and calls immediately and paid careful attention to detail. Yuval had great inventory to show and was an absolute pleasure to work with. I have high expectations and Yuval exceeded all of them. I highly recommend him!

Nick was incredibly helpful and so lovely to work with! From day one he showed us so many viable apartments that fit our criteria. He was even great about trying to find apts that had varied room sizes to accomodate our range of budgets. I was really impressed with how efficiently he scheduled our viewings so we could really take the most advantage of our search time. One two hour hunt with Nick will get you close to if not closing on an apt - we ended up signing the first spot we were shown and there was more than one great options to choose from. I highly recommend working with Nick - no compaints all good times.

I successfully worked with Christine to find an apartment in the Manhattan borough of NYC in two weeks for my family of three and our medium sized dog. Christine is an energetic, consummate professional who is result-driven while being easy to work with. She worked with me for three months prior to the move, and was on the ground with us constantly throughout. She was helpful, knowledgeable, and understanding of our ignorance of the city and its' requirements. She was always responsive and willing to meet us anywhere for anything. Christine also has great follow-through by coming by to visit and give our daughter a gift, showing us that we were more than just a client. I enthusiastically recommend Christine for anyone considering moving to NYC."

I had the pleasure of working with Samara Kern during my recent apartment search. After seeing so many depressing apartments my expectations were close to zero. My friend referred Samara to me and everything went upwards after. She showed me great apartments - in my budget in amazing buildings. She was never tired of it and more importantly her positive attitude made everything much better! Thanks Samara, you rock :)

Samara Kern was without a doubt the most helpful and caring broker I have ever worked with! I am a recent college grad was looking for my first apartment to begin my career in New York and Samara made this process as easy as possible! She had a very detailed and well thought out plan for our day and made apartment hunting in New York as painless as possible. She was very knowledgable about the areas of Manhattan in which i was interested in living in and always gave me her honest opinion and thoughts. Samara will be the first person I contact the next time I am looking to move and I would recommend her to anyone moving to the area!

She took us to four buildings and BINGO! It even has a terrace the size of the apartment! My friend and I were trying to find a non-broker fee apartment in Manhattan. We were getting tired of craigslist ads and decoys. We needed a "Handler"! We needed: * High ceilings. * View of something peaceful - like water. * Cool doormen. * Windows! I immediately liked her because her voice message had a personal greeting and she called back immediately! She rolled with our eccentric sense of humor. Her questions about lifestyle and priorities not only took into account our budget, but our need for subway lines, a good gym, and a Starbucks downstairs!!! She eased our stresses and made us laugh. Thank you so much Emily Sarrat! You''ve sent our lives into a wonderful new trajectory! L & S

We recently worked with Ben Willig of Anchor Associates on a co-op purchase in Manhattan. As a first time home buyer, we were incredibly lucky to have Ben as our buyer''s broker. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process -- from the bidding process, due diligence, signing contracts, acquiring financing, the co-op board package and interview and ultimately the closing. First and foremost, Ben is extremely attentive to his client''s needs and responsive given the various tight deadlines that are inherent in a co-op purchase. In addition, Ben has great recommendations for the resources one would need in closing a purchase (financing, attorneys, inspectors, insurance, etc.) and all the people we worked with were top notch. As issues would arise in the process -- as they naturally do -- Ben and his team showed great skill in handling them on our behalf and achieved great results for us. With the help of his warm, friendly and knowledgeable colleague Nick Campbell (who actually helped us view numerous rental properties before we decided to explore purchasing), Ben at Anchor Associates was the best broker we could have asked for. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone as a broker for a home purchase.

Posted on YELP: Gilad Paz was incredibly great to work with he made our search for the perfect place easier than we thought. We met him to view a few locations in Chelsea and what we got was a place we could call home. He did a great job assessing what we liked and showed us strictly that. That''s exactly what i liked, I liked that he didn''t waste our time every place we saw all had potential. If your looking for a great real estate agent look no further. We couldn''t be more happier!

I just used Anchor Associate Helene Campbell to find an apartment in New York City. She was fabulous! She did extensive research and developed a whole list of apartments within my price range and in the area where I wanted to live. She had a sensible itinerary for the apartment visits and we found my dream apartment in one day. I cannot recommend her more highly and would use her again in a heartbeat.

Moving is one of the most stressful experiences us New Yorkers have to face. I promised myself after my first move I would never use a broker again. From our first conversation Randy Caddle put me at ease with his genuine concern, professional demeanor, and personal knowledge about the different neighborhoods and building managements in the city. He understood my needs and never once forced one apartment over another. Coming from a luxury building I knew I was going to have to make sacrifices to be in an area I really wanted to live in. Randy pointed out all the pros and cons which allowed me to make the best decision. The day he showed me an apartment that I fell in love with, I was headed out to the Hampton''s for 5 days. Randy went above and beyond his responsibility as a broker to help me secure this unique apartment. He ran all over the city gathering my paperwork, picking up leases, drop off checks in order to get the job done! I highly recommend Randy to anyone looking for someone to help make a stressful process a breeze. His devotion and willingness to go way beyond "his job" was unbelievable and very rare in this city. Thanks to him I''m moving into a perfect apartment in SoHo that fits my personal needs! Thank you so much Randy for your non stop help and amazing communication!!!!!

If I could rate my experience with Anchor with 10 stars I would. However, more so than Anchor It was our broker Howard Hauptman that really made our experience wonderful. Not only was Howard knowledgable in all aspects of NY real estate he was unbelievably kind and lovely to work with. Apartment hunting can be miserable and Howard was truly the answer to all of our prayers. Howard is one of the rare breeds that doesn't do this for a commission but does this because he loves what he does. He takes care of his potential clients as if they were his own children and genuinely listen and cares about where he places them. While many brokers hung up when they heard about our moderate budget, Howard made it his mission for weeks to find us the perfect place that would suit all of our needs. I can tell you this is the first apartment that my roommate and I rented with Howard but it will not be the last!

I worked with A.K. Ibrahim to find my Upper West Side apartment and would definitely refer him to any of my friends, family, and colleagues. He cleared an entire day to show us apartments in 90+ degree weather and was able to coordinate access to multiple properties. After finding the best option for us, he was able to help me work with the landlord to negotiate a tricky move in and he also helped us coordinate the paperwork with my guarantor to make it a seamless process. I work a pretty a crazy schedule but having A.K. was like having the extra pair of hands that I needed for the move, I would highly recommend his services!

Zach is great, he responds very rapidly to inquiries and helps give you a fair amount of options to go see in the areas that you are interested in. He follows the price ranges at a reasonable rate, allowing for a wide variety of apartments to view. He is very friendly and helpful. I recommend using him as he does help guide you through the process, and gives helpful advice along the way.

Svetlana is a straight up professional, very prompt, clear and concise about all the paperwork that was needed and just made a situation that could have been difficult very easy. We were relocating from Florida and had to find an apartment in a short period of time. We needed to come to New York to see apartments and sign a lease within 24 hours. Me and my wife wanted to see a particular neighborhood that we''ve heard about but never visited. Svetlana intuitively understood our concerns and what our needs were. She was very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and showed us our dream apartment at the very first viewing! Very knowledgeable and personable agent. We highly recommend her for your next move!

- Alex P.,   August 12, 2014
 
Great service from Svetlana! She always let me know when she knew of a listing that I would be interested in. She knew how to accommodate for my wants and needs as well as my budget. Although I did not go through with one of her listings, she was extremely helpful and understanding. I will definitely work with her next year when I need another apartment. I Highly recommend her!

To Whom it May Concern, I worked with broker Kristy Salama to help locate an apartment rental in Manhattan for my son and his 2 friends. Kristy was a pleasure to work with and helped us find the perfect apartment for him and his pals! They love it! Kristy listened to our needs and was very proactive in identifying suitable apartments in our price range. She did not waste time showing us apartments which we were not interested in or unaffordable, as some brokers do. Kristy was extremely supportive through our search process, and made the experience of “shopping” for a Manhattan apartment very pleasurable. Kristy is a real professional, and we valued her service very much. Customers will be well-served to work with Kristy, and I highly recommend her. Very truly yours, A. Pirozzi

My roommate and I just concluded a fabulous experience with Nick Campbell of Anchor Associates. He is professional, relentless, and savvy, but more than anything else, a great guy that takes the pain out of rental apartment shopping. Nick was more than flexible with timing, logistics, and repeated visits; his ability to add useful, professional insights while simultaneously steering clear of the typical sleazy / pushy broker rhetoric that one expects during a broker search was invaluable. My roommate and I fed off of his energy and optimism that we would find the place we were looking for, and ultimately, Nick ended up finding a fantastic spot. Moreover, in negotiating our leasing application and credit checks, Nick was able to push back our move-in date (when we would start paying rent) by two weeks - a much valued effort considering we were both paying rents through the end of the current month, and wanted to limit overlap as much as possible. If you are reading this review, don''t pull a clown move - call up Nick from Anchor Associates and get your search underway. He is top-rate, and we plan to use him again for future apartment searches.

Derek was amazing in helping us relocate to an apartment in Manhattan after our move from out-of-state.

He was very friendly and professional, making us feel like his only clients. Thank you Derek for all your hard work!!

Jada Neal at Anchor Associates-Chelsea was a tremendous help in finding an apartment. The challenge we faced was finding something while out of town & not at all familiar with the process.

Anna found exactly what I was looking for and got a great deal for me. I wanted a one bedroom close with some outdoor space close to the subway and cool neighborhood. She showed me three unique pats, each better than the last and the third one was perfect. She knew what I wanted, found it quickly and was very pleasant and professional throughout the entire process.

This Review is for Anna Kozlova, I have lived in the city for 5-6 years and have always had bad to average experiences with brokers. Anna was a refreshing change because of her attention to detail, professional but welcoming attitude and honesty. She was very careful about understanding my preferences and every one of the 6-7 apartments she showed me were viable choices. I would definitely work with her again in the future and recommend her to anyone looking to finally find a broker who is trying to make money doing honest work and not screwing you over.

Yesterday Emily Sarrat showed me apartments in New York and she was very professional, efficient, excellent and attentive quickly.

Working with John Grant was an absolute pleasure. If it''s any indication, I have never posted a Yelp review, but his service compelled me to post one. I currently live in Washington, D.C. and I was looking for a one bedroom for my girlfriend and me. I found John on Craigslist thru one of his postings. I reached out via email and he responded same day on a Saturday. We saw the apartment that evening. This trend continued as my working in DC limited our searches to the weekend -- he made himself available every weekend, Saturday and Sundays, mornings thru evenings, during the entire process. John''s service was a breath of fresh air, having dealt with several subpar brokers and landlords. I''m happy to have found such a great resource, and I would love to work with him again in the future. I highly recommend anyone looking for an apartment to seek out this knowledgable, affable broker.

I am moving to the city from Boston for grad school and was originally referred to Ben Willig from on of my college friends who used him in the past. I emailed him to set up a meeting and promptly received a response from his assistant/admin saying that one of his associates would be reaching out to me. At first I wasn''t sure if I was just being passed off to anyone and was a little hesitant. Within and hour, I received an email and a voicemail from Drew Grombala and I could not be happier to have been able to work with him! After only a few minutes of meeting Drew, it is easy to tell he is just a great guy. We spent the better part of a Saturday together walking all over the city looking at apartments and he was always very honest, professional and up front. He did not promise anything that he knew he couldn''t deliver on. I knew by the end of that first meeting that I didn''t even want to meet with any other brokers because I had spoken to a few that I didn''t have a great feeling about. Drew was able find the perfect apartment for me near my school and close to central park for my dog, and of course dog friendly. He was extremely attentive and responsive and took care of everything for me. I should also note that being on the grad school budget, Drew probably earned his smallest commission from me but still put forth great effort and service. I would recommend Drew to my mother if she needed a broker. Thank you Drew and I look forward to working with you again for my next place!

My sister and I needed to move apartments this summer but we had some difficult restrictions for our search. Jimmy Fernandes was introduced to us through Ben Willig as a part of the Anchor Knights and he was absolutely fantastic throughout our apartment search process. Jimmy was both patient and hardworking, and he never bat an eye when presented with the difficulties of our limited options. My sister and I won''t ever work with another broker and we highly recommend him to everyone looking for a new home. Thank you Jimmy!

After hearing the horror stories about dishonest and scheming brokers I was a little scared of using one in my apartment search. I gave Zack Haluszczak a chance based on a friend's recommendation and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Zack may just be the most genuine and friendly broker in New York. He was more than willing to put in the time and effort necessary to find me the perfect place for my needs and never pushed anything I wasn't quite sure about. He is very accessible and responds quickly to any form of communication. I would strongly recommend him to anybody looking to find a new place to live in NYC - you will not regret it!

This review is for Drew Grombala who helped my roommates and I find our new UES apartment. All four of us have nothing but glowing things to say about our experience with Drew. He was punctual, professional, and incredibly accommodating with his schedule to make time for us. Drew has a positive and upbeat demeanor which makes the painful process of finding a home in the city much more enjoyable. We will be recommending him to any friends and coworkers looking to move.

Diane was one of the most strategic thinkers that I worked with at OATS. Diane was instrumental in defining and conveying the unique mission of the organization and worked tirelessly to secure critical partnerships, grants and supporters, collaborating with board members, government officials and business leaders. Additionally, Diane is a passionate and dedicated leader who works extremely hard to foster a productive team culture that enables colleagues to enjoy what they do and succeed together.

Diane Magnuson from Anchor Associates is a "one of a kind" broker in NYC. I have to say that it is really difficult to find a good broker in NYC that is always available, dedicates a good amount of time on your search and never gives up on you. I worked Diane and since the day we met she always put 110% effort in for me. I had a difficult situation where I had 2 dogs, desired outside space and an UES location; and she was constantly researching apartments on the market that would meet my needs. She was always available to talk to me and always responded to calls and emails quickly. She was such a pleasure to work during my search. After all her hard work she did for me, my husband and I found a house to purchase quicker than we expected so we didn''t end up renting in NYC. Diane was very happy for the next chapter in our life, and I commend her for all the work she did for me over the month we worked together. I have dealt with a few other brokers that just didn''t have the dedication and kindness that Diane had. I highly recommend that if you''re looking for a good broker that will make your search less stressful, contact Diane Magnuson at Anchor Associates - she is the best!

Alex is the most amazing agent that I have ever worked with. She''s always available and willing to help, really hard worker and very easy to deal with . I highly recommend her, through her I have found my dream house in New York . Thanks for your hard work Aleksandra .

- Mario - Yelp.com,   July 23, 2014
 
If you are hunting for apartments in New York City and need some thoughtful guidance to put your mind at ease, Aleksandra is the perfect choice for you. Her professionalism, attention to detail, knowledge of the market and ability to listen were all qualities that made her a pleasure to work with throughout our search. She has a great attitude, cares about her clients and is willing to put in the extra time and effort which I believe is rare to find these days. Her main objective from the start is to help find you the right place that fits your criteria and will make you happy. She''s extremely responsive, patient and is truly a pleasure to be around. Thanks, Aleksandra!

Derek was a pleasure to work with. He tirelessly took us to listings in our desired area, sometimes with two toddlers in tow. He helped us to narrow things down until we found our home, and he provided good insight to the purchase price. He was also able to help us rent our old place. We highly recommend him.

- Chris B. (Zillow),   July 21, 2014
 
I have rarely come across a real estate broker who is as responsive and professional as Asaf. He has a great command of the market, extensive contacts, and listens to your needs while providing encouragement. After a barrage of brokers contacted me by email, he called me and gave the process a personal touch. With our requirements in mind, it took one day to find what we were looking for. Total professional, took command of the application process and we were approved without delay. I am a life long New Yorker and would recommend Asaf to any apartment renter or buyer for an optimal experience. AG

Dear Ethan I wanted to take a moment to thank you on behalf of all of us for your time today and hard work. All the apartments you took us to were terrific & hard to choose between. Ultimately we are staying with the very first choice but getting to explore the New York market with you has been an excellent experience. Wishing you the best on your daughters upcoming nuptials. Thanks again

Working with Derek Chan was a breeze. We really appreciated his support through the entire process. Derek guided us through the paperwork necessary to rent, took careful consideration of our location preferences, and ultimately pulled together an itinerary of great places to visit. Derek was never pushy when it comes to making a housing choice, and we never felt any pressure to make a decision from our end, which was so helpful, especially after hearing horror stories about aggressive brokers. Derek was extremely kind through the entire process and incredibly thoughtful and diligent in asking questions to tailor the apartment search to our expectations. Derek did his best to satisfy all of our expectations in an apartment, and I will definitely be working with him again in the future. Would recommend him to anyone looking for a new apartment in the city!

Yael was an incredible broker to work with. She was very friendly and went the extra mile to help me in securing a great studio all the way from Michigan! I felt very comfortable working with her, as it was my first apartment obtaining on my own. I will definitely speak highly of her and your company to my friends and family in the future!

"I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for all your help finding my apartment. I'm really excited about living in that area and I'm sure we've found just what I was looking for with a mix of residential and shops and restaurants which I wouldn't have been able to do without your help."

Belinda is awesome. She responded right away to my inquiry, met me on-time, was very professional and kind, and the best part is that she didn't make me feel pressured to sign the lease, but when I told her I liked the area, she directed me to a local newspaper with by-owner listings. I definitely recommend working with her!

I found my apartment at Anchor Associates Chelsea with Deresia, and I have to say that she helped me so much on everything! She is a polite person, very sweet and friendly, and always calm when needed. As well for me being International, is way more difficult to find an aparment and she did a lot of search for it. For sure I totally recommend her!!!!

We used Ethan Wolvek to rent our new Brooklyn apartment and had a really great experience. I''ve lived in NYC for nine years, and my boyfriend his entire life, and neither of us had ever used a broker before. The real estate market in Brooklyn being what it is, however, we realized that we were going to have to pay a fee anyway (to the building''s broker) and decided to give it a shot. Ethan gave us the royal treatment. While I still think we could have actually found the apartment on our own, we definitely couldn''t have: - negotiated the lease - negotiated the timing of the signing of the lease - coordinated our move-in date (it was a complicated situation with a lease-break and not-so-communicative current tenants) - coordinated picking up the keys and then actually picking them up for us - helped out on move-in day, going as far as letting our movers in for us to save us time and money when we got stuck in traffic - welcomed us into our new home with a toast :) Definitely saved us a lot of hassle. While we vow to never move again, if we had to do this one again, we''d follow the same path.

My boyfriend and I worked with both Josh and Eyal to help us find a studio/1 bedroom. We received great work, extensive lists and a lot of dedication to help us find an amazing place. Without their help, we wouldn''t have found our apartment. Very pleased with these realtors!

Yael was great! My fiancé and I didn''t have too much time to hunt for apartments, so Yael distilled the process down to the top picks in the area we were looking in. None of the apartments she showed us were bad choices, and once she got a better idea of exactly what place we were looking for, she really bargained with the renting representatives on our behalf for the best price on our future apartment. She was always smiling and upbeat, patient with our occasional late meeting times (we were from out of town) and made the process short and sweet, allowing us the most important thing: time to enjoy the rest of our vacation! Really a great experience!!

Scott made me feel instantly welcome and at ease about hiring him to show me around the city. The amount of knowledge Scott has is extremely fascinating. He constantly managed the expectations of my roommates and didn’t push anything, very relaxed feeling with him. Scott was always available by phone and email and we have now become friends!

- Beth W,   July 09, 2014
 
Hands down best real estate agent in the city. After spending several weeks looking at countless apartments, I was ready to settle on a studio in Chelsea. At the very last second, by pure luck, I met Scott Johnson. After carefully listening to my preferences, he painstakingly sought out numerous options - finding several amazing apartments that had just come on the market (sometimes before it was actually even listed). He diligently negotiated on my behalf and thanks to him I now live in a spacious 1 bedroom in the heart of Chelsea (much better than any other location I had looked at) for the same amount that I would paid for a studio. He also went the extra mile in getting the management company to accept my guarantor and even sent me a house warming present after I moved in! Thank you!

  July 09, 2014
 
Scott is an amazing individual - eager to help, accommodating to the needs of all, jovial, loquacious, and overall a very positive person to work with. He treats everyone fairly and equitably. No "wool" with Scott! I recommend him with the utmost confidence.

Friendly and Smart. Robert was an excellent agent for us. We'd just moved from Spain and Robert found an excellent apartment for us in just one day of touring. We are very happy with our new apartment and would most definitely recommend Robert to any first time renters in the city. 5 Stars!

- Bianca - Spain ,   July 09, 2014
 
Every single rental he sent me for review was vetted to perfection. Not once did he send me a long list of "kinda OK" choices, and not once did he suggest a unit which was outside my budget - which I really appreciated, as it set realistic expectations of what I would afford. Wonderful energy, never pushy, and a wonderful negotiator.

- Abby Zimmermacher - Yelp,   July 08, 2014
 
VERY impressed. Robert was easy to talk to and asked so many questions to figure out exactly what I needed. In the end, I got a better apartment than I thought I would. I was extremely impressed with Robert's professionalism. I looked at over 100 apartments online, and about 10 in person and was getting very frustrated with a zillion broker's I tried working with. Then a friend from college recommended that I call Robert, because he helped her find a great apartment when she moved last year. Before I even called him, I actually responded to an ad he had up in Midtown West - and was impressed that he basically found me before I found him. We spoke on the phone, and I told him exactly what I wanted. He set up a few appointments for literally the next morning - and I just saw 5 awesome buildings - all no-fee - and in my price range. Ultimately, I am going with Riverplace, because they have a shuttle service that will take me across town to my job near Grand Central. I wouldn't even have considered that location because it would be a crazy trek by subway - but Robert knew about the shuttle - and told me how many people who live there love the location and convenience of the shuttle. I'M IN LOVE WITH THIS APARTMENT! Would definitely recommend Robert for his attention to detail, and his ability to look outside the box. He literally found me an apartment in less than 24 hours. I had been looking in Midtown East - and he showed me that what I really wanted existed somewhere else and could still fit my needs.

- Harry M. - New Jersey,   July 07, 2014
 
I worked with several brokers in Manhattan and I have to say Yuval is the most professional agent that I have encountered. He knows the inventory and will not waste your time. Whenever I have a question his response is immediate. I am still working with Yuval and am sure to find a great rental. I highly recommend Yuval. He operates with the utmost of integrity. He is a 5 star broker! Thanks !

Nick El-Tawil did a great job of showing us around. He was enthusiastic and cared about OUR needs. He didn''t show us places that he knew were out of our budget, and that we definitely would not want to see. Most importantly, he hustled to make sure were looking at the right apartments. Thanks Nick! We would definitely recommend him to others in their apartment search... in fact, we already have told a few friends.

Derek helped me find my first apartment in NYC and he could not have made the process any easier. He really listened to what I wanted and did a fantastic job finding a variety of apartments. He was also always accessible for my 100 questions and was incredibly thorough. He even came to my place of work to pick up my paperwork because I was so busy and stressed! FIVE STARS!

I worked with Amy before and a trust was built up between us. She just sold my apartment with a satisfying price. Amy is a trustworthy, efficient and warm-hearted realtor. I have been consulting Amy for many aspects in the real life and she was always willing to help. I could not recommend Amy more to anybody who is selling, buying and renting apartment in the city. Amy is a successful professional! --Trulia, Jun. 27th, 2014

"I worked with Yael Gonen-Dawson when I was contemplating a move in NYC. Yael was not only prompt and professional, she also truly listened, showing me a wide variety of apartments that not only fit my taste, but also fit my budget. I would highly recommend Yael to anyone who was contemplating a move in the city."

"Me and my boyfriend spent a few hours yesterday with Yael: she was great, very enthusiastic and helpful- as well as responsible, prepared and she knew her stuff- She showed us a variety of apartments- and she was very patient with us- knowing full well that this process is tiring and may be overwhelming- I recommend her wholeheartedly!"

- Juliana N.,   June 25, 2014
 
"I am writing this in regards to my experiences with Yael Gonen-Dawson. She was of great help. We started looking at apartments not knowing if we would be 2,3, or 4 roommates, due to this uncertainty our first day with Yael showing us around we saw all 4 bed rooms with some 3. It turned out we went with 2 roommates so our first day of showing was a complete waste of everyone's times and Yael had no problem with that! She met with us again with in the week and showed us many more options for two bed rooms that fit all our other needs. She did everything you can ask for from a broker and more making the process very simply and easy which for me was a huge plus due to the fact i needed to get my own condo rented out I really needed someone to do all the leg work and that is exactly what she did. Very positive experience and I suggest Yael as a agent for all, I know based on my experience I certainty will be in the future."

If you are looking to find a place in NYC then Randy Caddle at Anchor Associates Midtown is your man! He asked detailed questions, listened to everything I had to say, gave great feedback and then used all of that to find me the perfect place to live. His knowledge of the city and each borough is incredible and he really takes the time to get to know you, what you like and what you need to find the right area and right home. He keeps in contact and follows through on his word. If you want to work with someone who genuinely cares about seeing you happy with your final choice and not just about what they''re going to get out of it then you have to work with him!

Art Jalandoni was extremely well prepared and helpful in my search process. I had a late start on my apartment hunt and only short window in which to find a place to live before starting in my position. He organized a jam packed day of apartment showings to show me what was available at my price point in different areas I was interested in. He made the application process extremely easy by giving me a comprehensive list of the documents I would need. To make sure I had an answer as quickly as possible he worked until late in the night to make sure the landlord had all the information she needed. By the next day at 5, I was signing a lease for my favorite apartment.

I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Christine Chang of Anchor Associates Chelsea. She was very prompt to reply to my e-mails and was able to show me 5 units on very short notice.

“Joe was fantastic - he''s an amazing agent and would recommend him to all my friends. Joe was really considerate, careful and provided amazing service.

I chose Anchor Associate based on the Yelp reviews and my experience did not disappoint. Arthur was very responsive, extremely professional and had great business ethics. He truly made me feel like a valued client and that he is working for my best-interests, which cannot be said for many other Manhattan brokers. I would absolutely recommend Arthur to anyone, you'll be in good hands!

I worked with Samara Kern trying to find my first apartment. She was absolutely amazing to work with! She listen to all of my needs and never tried to push me into something she knew wasn't right for me! She helped me find my first apartment so fast and I could not be happier with it! If I ever move in the near future, I would definitely work with her again!

Kristy was absolutely phenomenal. She helped me find a place with almost no preliminary notice, and made sure that I was satisfied with the apartment and building. She searched quite a few listings to find me a place within my price range, and with the amenities I wanted. In less than a week, she had shown me several apartments, and then put the paperwork through for the place I selected as well. She was very personable and made me feel like I could rely on her. She was in contact with me through every step of the process, all the way to the day when I moved in. She was extremely knowledgeable about the places in the city, and every single apartment she showed me was clean, well-maintained, and in a good building. I can't thank her enough for her help!

Worked with Drew Grombala and although new to the game, was really helpful and had a great attitude.

Easy to get along with and at the end of the day was a good person to be showing us apartments. Trusting and ambitious, would recommend.

Robert was a breath of fresh air! We just moved into our new apartment and couldn't be happier. Robert is very knowledgable about the luxury market and after a few questions, he was able to find exactly what we were looking for. We started our search in Midtown West and Robert patiently showed us several buildings. Based on our reactions - he convinced us to checkout some new buildings in Chelsea. We fell in love with the apartment - love at first site - just like he said we would- and COULD NOT be happier. We recommend Robert 100% !!

Just want to let you know how appreciative I am of suggesting I use Robert Chattah to handle the sale of my Condominium # 7J in the ORION. He handled my sale as well as my current tenant in a very professional manner. He got for me the highest price in the building ($1495 per square foot)for my studio apt. He was so helpful. I cannot begin to thank you enough. Robert Chattah---This young man knows so much concerning the real estate market in NEW YORK.He knows exactly what to do & say. Robert gets along well with all. He is a people person. Since my unit will not be closing for about 30-45 days he was able to secure a very nice professional tenant for my unit until closing. He was able to obtain a very high rental price for the unit. I am very happy as this tenant will stay until the Condo closes. In summary, I thank you very much for recommending Robert to me. I will always refer clients to him. He is my realtor now. I will use him for all of my real estate needs in the NEW YORK CITY AREA. Sincerely, Gertrude G Owner--Unit # 7J The ORION

I have nothing but praise for Anchor Associates, and particularly for real estate agent, Nicholas El-Tawil. I called with an urgent request for help finding a place late on a Sunday night, and Nick was straightforward and honest in helping me find a place both Sunday night and then was ready to meet with me on Monday morning, even when that particular Monday was Memorial Day. I am very grateful for the frank and speedy assistance I have received from this group. Thank you.

Drew Grombala helped my husband and I find our new apartment home in NYC. We were moving from North Carolina so we weren''t familiar with the different neighborhoods or the apartment hunting process. He made our apartment home search very pleasant and relaxed. He walked us through the entire process and showed us a lot of apartments. On the first day, Drew toured us through several different types of apartments to find out exactly what we were looking for. After understanding what was most important to us, Drew narrowed down the search to meet our specific needs. With his help we were able to find the perfect apartment in a great neighborhood. We would definitely recommend Drew! He worked extremely hard to find the right apartment for us and had great customer service (which means a lot coming from a southerner). He was very prompt in answering our emails and phone calls and was always friendly and professional. His great customer service didn''t stop after we found the apartment either. After we signed the lease, he was very helpful with all of our questions and even brought us our keys when we arrived in the city. Drew will go above and beyond to make sure you find a great a place you can call home. Thanks Drew!!

Loved Lydia. I felt like she dropped everything and helped me to the best of her ability. I can''t imagine how this would have worked out without her. I worked with other agents before her in the same search and was so disappointed and over the whole process. She really found me an awesome apartment and showed me the best of the market in my price range. She didn''t waste my time showing me places she knew I wasn''t going to like. I will be referring her to my friends.

Amy made my first home purchasing much easier. I am very happy with my first home and would like to recommend Amy to other home buyers. The apartment viewing process took a while before I found the current one. Amy showed professional knowledge and lots of patience.

I would credit her efficiency for the successful purchasing, which is crucial in the competitive market. J.L

Scott was extremely helpful and made the process easy... In one day he took me to multiple listings, keeping the search within my budget and the area I was looking for, and found me my new apartment! When it came time to write up the paper work he met me on the weekend so my application could get in first! When I signed the lease, he made it super easy and brought the documents to my work! He even got me a deal on the fee which was awesome. I loved working with Scott and would recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment.

I had the pleasure of looking for apartments with Nick GoForth from Anchor Associates this past month. My roommate and I had a tight budget and were looking at the most difficult time of the year for an apartment over two months in advance as we would be away until right before we needed to be in the city. Knowing this would be as easy as effortless as making it through the entire line at trader joes in under 25 minutes I wasn''t expecting to have any options to look at, but nick scrambled at the last minute and magically manifested three apartments for the exact time we''d need one, mid month too, all of which were definitely in budget and great areas of the ues. None of which I had found anywhere else, and I had been searching. I assume he was up late that night getting it touch with people, and even if he had found them from other sites or no fee listings as I''m sure some brokers some places do, I certainly didn''t see those ones anywhere so no matter what he was making his services worthwhile. We ended up going with another place purely because my roommate and changed our mind about our desired location and happened to fall upon something at that exact time a bit more downtown, but it was a super hard decision even so and nick really did show us three great options which I was sure were impossible given our criteria. It was delightful to have him show us places, and he was very on top of things, got back to all correspondences quickly and purposefully, and was responsible and respectful. Much appreciated.

Andrew was wonderful to work with, and I have already recommended him to friends who are apartment hunting. I was looking for a studio or one bedroom in downtown Manhattan, and Andrew listened to my priorities and found my new home. He is friendly, professional, responsive and efficient. He works incredibly hard on behalf of his clients, and was a great resource during the negotiation and application process. I was impressed with his work ethic and really enjoyed working with him. I would happily work with Andrew again.

I recently bought a Condop Apt on the Upper East Side at Manhattan. From visiting the open house to the closing table, there were many details to worry about. However, I was very lucky to work with Eyal Zabari, the listing agent. Eyal is very knowledgeable about the building, the neighborhood and the Condop purchase procedure. He is a good listener, very patient and highly efficient . He always replied my calls, emails, texts promptly, no matter on weekends or at nights. With his efficiency and guidance, I was be able to move into the new apartment in two months!! He also offered to help me rent out my old apartment and referred a very good moving company. I was very satisfied with Eyal’s help and would be happy to recommend him to my friends. Nancy at NYC " 3/21/14

I went with Christine because she was the first person to respond to my emails, and I feel like I got lucky because she was great to work with from then on. She listened to my nitpicking, ensured I had all the paperwork prepared ahead of time, and I signed a lease on a fantastic place only 3 days later. She was also pleasant to talk to as we walked between various places, made the search easy

I never write Yelp reviews, but when I find a customer service representative who truly puts the customer first I feel the need to publicize it. Good business is good business. In working with Josh Banilivy, I was thoroughly impressed by his professionalism, integrity, hustle, and market intelligence. Despite the long and strict list of standards my girlfriend and I had for finding an apartment in Manhattan, Josh persevered and found some of the most valuable apartments in the very specific neighborhoods we were looking in. It's a rare surprise to find a young and intelligent real estate agent that is in tune with his domain to the degree that he can find every available apartment that is unlisted publicly in an hour's notice. Within an hour of speaking on the phone, Josh showed a range of apartments with different attributes in different neighborhoods within our budget. Had we relied on public internet listings, we would have never have seen what Josh provided for us. This kind of market intelligence is well worth the relatively cheap brokerage fee that accompanies Anchor's services and we were happy to reward Josh for his efforts. If you want an apartment in the Murray Hill, NoMad, Flat Iron, Kips Bay, Gramercy area within your requirements and you need it yesterday, call Josh and don't waste your time elsewhere.

Aleksandra is without question the most amazing agent I have ever worked with !..She goes above and beyond what's required..Most agents may know the market, but she has an innate ability to listen and then translate the individual needs of her clients. She's clear, professional, positive and CALMING. I would recommend her to anyone facing the daunting task of apartment hunting in NYC Thanks Aleks for all your support and help!!

If you are looking for someone to help you find the perfect apartment Aleksandra is the absolute best! We requested to view one apartment and within hours Aleksandra was able to meet up and show us the apartment. She also spend the remainder of the weekend showing us an additional eleven apartments. Aleksandra is very personable and listens to what you are looking for. She did not deviate from our price range and stuck closely to the locations we were interested in. Once we found an apartment Alkesandra worked closely with the leasing office to make sure all of the paperwork was processed correctly and quickly. Overall, it took us 4 days from start to finish (looking for a place to having a signed lease with a move in date). The process could not have been easier. If I were ever to move again in NYC I would absolutely work with Aleksandra and will recommend her my friends and family in the future. Thank you Aleksandra, we could not have found our new home without you!

Aleksandra is amazing! She is very reliable and will definitely get you the biggest bang for your buck in NYC. She charges a very reasonable broker fee for great work, which is hard to find, and she is on her toes at all hours of the day to help you look for a new home whenever is most convenient for you. I am happily now moved into my new home on the Upper East side with all of the amenities and space that I could possibly want for a great price. I couldn't have done it without her!

Having just graduated from college, I am moving to New York in two weeks to start a job and, this being my first apartment, I was very anxious about the whole process. I found an apartment on the NYTimes real estate section that I thought looked like a good fit for me and e-mailed the realtor, Anchor's Aleksandra Milanova. Unlike many of the realtors that I had e-mailed, she responded very quickly and was extremely professional throughout our e-mail correspondence and multiple phone calls. She listened to my desires and kept in mind my price range and I could not have asked for a better experience! When I flew to NY to meet with her in person to see the various apartments she had chosen for me, she was very pleasant and extremely prepared to answer any and all questions I had about the various apartments we visited. She showed me a great variety (doorman buildings, walk-ups, luxury bldgs etc.) and at various price points. Every building we walked into she had clearly called ahead to make an appointment and was very knowledgable about its amenities and the area. The process was very smooth and I highly recommend Aleksandra!

- Merrill C - Yelp.com,   May 07, 2014
 
This review is for Aleksandra Milanova. When I first contacted her to find a NYC apartment, I had already been looking at places for over a month and she managed to show me exactly what I was hoping to find, faster than any of the other brokers I had worked with prior to getting in touch with her. This proved to me that she truly listened to what my needs were, and where I was coming from and what would be most suitable for my situation. I knew that I would have a lot of options on the Upper East Side but Aleksandra was quick to find the kinds of places that fit my criteria and not once did I feel like my time was being wasted. She showed me places mostly within my range, but also made sure that I had an idea about what else was out there so that I would be able to make a fully informed decision about what I was getting into. She had a wonderful balance of warmth and professionalism, and working with her felt like I was being taken care of by a friend. Watching her interaction with the management companies was also a real treat - it was evident that she was well know and well liked and knew what she was doing. Thank you Alex, for helping me find my first home in the city! Bottom line, I would recommend her over and over again :)

This review is for Nick Campbell. I saw one of Nick''s listings on Trulia and asked for more information. He responded in less than 24 hours and answered all of my questions. After informing him of my needs and desired move date, I realized I was hitting the market a bit early. We agreed that I would reach out about a month later. When the time came, Nick made it a priority to show me and my roommate a ton of places as soon as I contacted him. Since this was our first apartment search in Manhattan, we wanted to see as many options as possible. During the first day Nick showed us a variety of different places. After this we were able to give him a list of specific criteria. When we made our next appointment he showed us another round, all of which exceeded our expectations. After only the second day of looking we found a great apartment and Nick submitted an application the very same day. Nick was able to accommodate our needs for our first apartment. He never pressured us into making a decision and was open to continue showing us more places. Nick displayed a strong knowledge of the market and was able to answer every question we had...there were many. I can understand how finding an apartment in Manhattan can be a headache, but Nick made sure this was not the case. Overall it a quick and hassle free experience. I would recommend Nick to anyone searching for an apartment in the city. When the time comes, I will be using Nick to find apartments in the future.

I know I know, it seems like a big jump - from 1 star to 5 stars. But I think this jump speaks volumes of Anchor''s constant strive to achieve perfect customer satisfaction. After my last review, I was contacted directly by the head of Anchor - Val, and he was genuinely interested in knowing what happened and personally took it upon himself to ensure that he and his company make up for my past experience. So he put me in touch with one his associates and personally ensure he will follow my progress. Enter - Nick Campbell. To say he did a phenomenal job is an understatement. No doubt he was patient and understanding, and we actually made two trips into the city to look at apartments and I think he was spot on in understanding exactly what we were looking for! He really made it very easy for us to pick and choose an apartment. One thing that I must highlight is his ethical integrity. Before we finalized our current apartment, we had almost finalized another one before it but due to certain irreconcilable issues we had to let that apartment go. What impressed me was the fact that Nick never once pushed us to take that apartment, he could have if he wanted but he just told us that if we are not happy with it, to let it go - And I think that speaks volumes not just of him but also of the culture being inculcated at Anchor Associates. True customer service lies in the ability to listen to the customer, learn from feedback and excel in delivery. That is exactly what Val, Anchor and Nick did.

- Aditya S. Yelp.com 5.6.14,   May 07, 2014
 
As someone who was looking for an apartment in Manhattan for the first time, I expected to be overwhelmed with high prices and small spaces. In one afternoon, Nick Campbell showed us many great apartments that fell well within our budget and were actually bigger than I had expected. With Nick's help, in that same afternoon, my roommate and I were able to find the apartment we were looking for and decided to apply that day! Nick was so friendly and answered all of our questions with a smile - turning what could have been a stressful process into an enjoyable and exciting afternoon. What was more, he made himself accessible for all of our questions during the application process, even on Christmas Eve (really great timing on our part!). Even though it was the holidays, he was there to guide us and we were approved the day after Christmas! I'd also like to give a shout out to another Anchor agent, Ryan McGuirl, who stepped in last-minute for Nick the day after Christmas for our lease signing, as Nick was out of state for the holiday. We are very grateful for all of their support and willingness to help us even at a very inconvenient time! Thank you Nick for helping us find such a great apartment and making the process as easy as possible!

Erica is a knowledgeable, helpful, and honest broker. She is always willing to work with you. Erica gives her time and effort in order to ensure that you are happy with the choice you make.

If I could rate Erica Orlando more than just 5 stars, I would in a heartbeat! Erica is a great realtor and I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is looking for a place to live!

Andrew is one of the nicest, most caring people and he will work his hardest to find you the best apartments and then further lock in your favorite one when you are ready to move forward. I have only the best things to say about Andrew and will definitely be recommending him to anyone searching for an apartment.

I had a great experience working with Carol Rodehau who found the perfect apartment for me in the neighborhood I wanted - and within my budget! She's very knowledgeable about the market and showed me properties that fit what I was looking for. I appreciated that she was patient, not pushy, and made a typically stressful process to be much easier! I'm always happy to recommend Carol to my friends when they're looking for apartments, and I highly recommend Carol @ Anchornyc.com or 917 214 6649 to anyone who is beginning the apartment-seeking process!

"I highly recommend A.K. Ibrahim as a broker in the city. I had a property in Battery Park that I provided A.K. exclusive rights to in order to take it off the market. A.K. was able to give me realistic expectations on the current market and my property, as well as a solid game plan. He was then able to move my property before the expected deadline, and he handled all the negotiations thoroughly between all parties. I would entrust A.K.'s work to my family and friends in the future."

Javed Ousman at Anchor helped me find an apartment I love. I am really grateful. He planned out where he was going to take me to look according to the criteria I had discussed with him. I didn''t have a lot of time to spend looking at apartments. He was very well organized, resourceful, patient, and understanding. Moving is stressful. I''ve been in my new apartment less than a week. It''s a beautiful day in Manhattan. I love the view from this apartment, the buildings'' amenities, and the neighborhood. It''s exactly what I wanted! Thank you Javed!

Kelly and I worked with each other during my one day search in the Upper East Side. I am currently an Upper East Sider and I knew I needed an agent to help me in my search to make it easier for me. She showed me 15 buildings in 6 hours and I was able to make my decision that day. She provided useful information regarding the managements and neighborhood, and always gave me an honest opinion. HIGHLY recommend Kelly!

Ross is an excellent broker and I can now say a friend. He helped my roommate and I look for an apartment in the heart of Manhattan. His experience and knowledge of the marketplace was very helpful. We had a very particular situation and he was able to locate the perfect apartment for us in a very short period of time. In addition, his negotiation skills were impeccable when it came time to close on the rental. He was able to lower the price of the apartment on our behalf. He was also on top of all the paperwork once it came down to signing the lease. The best part of all was that Ross wasn't pushy. He listened, paid attention to what we needed and found us what we wanted rather then trying to push for something more expensive. Overall a great experience and an amazing outcome. My roommate and I highly recommend Ross to our friends, family and anybody else who wants a good, honest, hardworking broker.

This is a review of David Borowik, Anchor Associates Midtown. I moved from Chicago to New York this past summer and was looking to find an apartment before I made my move. I visited New York and met with David only twice before I ended up finding my apartment. I told him what I was looking for in an apartment (as well as my price range), and David was able to help me find exactly that! As someone who values efficiency, I especially appreciated that David was clearly organized and responsive throughout the entire process. It was apparent that David knows New York and the real estate market extremely well. He was able to give me advice on what a good or not so good deal was and why. He made the whole process much more stress-free and smooth for me. I''ve also since recommended him to a number of my friends, who have also had positive experiences purchasing and renting apartments in New York with David''s services.

We worked with Eyal 3 years ago to buy a 1BR apartment in the upper east side of Manhattan, rented it out and sold it with him last month. Eyal was highly professional, trustworthy and effective. He never applied any pressure to buy or to sell and always looked to accomplish our priorities above all. IS & SC 4/1/2014 We recommended his services to close relatives and they were very happy as well. We would highly recommend Eyal to anybody who is looking to buy, sell or rent out in the complex NYC market and hope to work with him again.

Ross Vesselinov helped me find an apartment this past summer. I was searching for an apartment with a very specific time frame and area to live in, and he was very helpful and thoughtful about all my requirements. He was responsive, polite and I had a very good experience.

- Grace J on Yelp,   April 02, 2014
 
I worked with Ross Vesselinov, who managed to get me my current place only in a couple of days! He consistently showed me places that I was not getting from other brokers, and did not slow down even when I told him I was close to signing another place. In fact, he found me my current apartment mere hours before I was to sign for the other place. He was very persistent in his search, and maintained excellent professional demeanor throughout. I would highly recommend him.

- Harsha J on Yelp,   April 02, 2014
 
Ross Vesselinov is by far the best person I could have met in my search to find the perfect apartment. I was very reluctant to use a broker but my friend recommend Ross to me. I have to say that I was blown away by all of the help he provided me when it came to searching for the right apartment. The man was extremely friendly and knew exactly what I needed versus what I wanted. Through this broad field of vision, he was able to navigate my decision making process and help me make the correct choice. He wasn't pushy and certainly did not try to upsell me something I didn't want or couldn't afford. There was also no rush. We went and looked at as many apartments as was needed for me to finally make the decision. Once it came to closing, Ross was extremely efficient. Not only was he on top of all the paper work but he was also able to come up with some great solutions to the problems we came across. I also want to mention that he helped negotiate the lease down on my behalf without me even having to ask. Overall a great experience and one that I would recommend to family and friends. Ross your the man!

My boyfriend and I knew exactly what we wanted in an apartment and were not looking for a broker who wanted to trek all over Manhattan looking at places we knew we'd never move into for hours on end. We replied to a select few listings we found online and within an hour Rossen Vesselinov had responded. I let him know our situation, what we wanted and didn't want, and unlike most brokers, he listened! We set up an appointment for only a few hours later and he showed us three different apartments in the same building (which was the building we were hoping to get in to) all around the price range we had given him, all with all of the specifications we had requested. Things went so smoothly that we put in our application that day and signed the lease 4 days later and moved in a week after that (we've been in for over a week now and still love it!). Ross was friendly and helpful and any time communication needed to go back and forth he was there to do it for us - making the hardest part of the whole thing just signing the paperwork! Like I said before - he actually listened and only showed us what we wanted to see and then was extremely helpful!

- Beth Ann D on Yelp,   April 02, 2014
 
If you are on a tight timeline and need an apartment miracle, Ross Vesselinov is your guy. He was a lifesaver for me. I had 2 weeks to pack up and move from Boston to begin a new job and only one weekend to find and sign on an apartment. I got to the city on a Friday afternoon for appointments I had previously scheduled with another realtor from a different firm only to find that she had only ONE place to show me. Desperate for better options, I found Ross online and quickly gave him a call. Later that day he showed me several places and then he worked all night to come up with a long list (of 20 places!) to show me the following day. He worked very efficiently and didn't spend time showing me things that were out of budget or things that were missing amenities that I felt I absolutely needed. Apartment hunting in the city is all about finding the needle in the haystack and Ross worked tirelessly until he found me my perfect place. He is smart, great under pressure and overall wonderful to work with. He made a difficult and stressful situation fun and I look forward working with him the next time I move. Give him a call - you'll be thrilled that you did!

- Honor Flannery on Yelp,   April 02, 2014
 
Ross listened to what we were looking for and showed us two apartments to those specifications - the second one we rented! I love that we did not waste time.

Anchor Associates are amazing. I just moved into the city and met with (unnamed broker)originally with a deadline of 3 days to find an apartment. (Unnamed broker) tried to bait and switch me into an apartment I didn't feel comfortable with. I dumped them and found Ross and he was amazing. He put up with showing me different areas in NYC for 2 full days. We literally looked at Apts in Upper East, East Village, Stuyvesant, Upper West, Midtown, etc. He worked with me to find an apartment within my budget and my preferences - I actually was able to sit with him and look at available listings before we went around. By the end of it, we had looked at over 20 apartments throughout the city and Ross didn't pressure me to put an application in until I felt ready. I can't stress enough how great Ross was to a person that just moved into the city. He doesn't play any games and definitely cares about his clients.

Ryan continues to stand out regarding his knowledge, service and suggestions. He is an absolute pleasure to work with as he transformed a stressful searching process into a manageable educational experience allowing me to reach a comfortable decision while working through numerous options. I will be referring friends & family to Ryan in the future as I believe he will continue set himself apart from completion & keep his focus on prioritizing his clients.

In New York, the perfect home can feel frustratingly out of reach. You encounter a lot of brokers here, many of whom seem to be going through the motions just to secure a commission. It's a relief to meet someone like Zack Haluszczak of Anchor Associates who genuinely wants to find you a home, who understands the stress you've been going through, and who does research to find options that could make you happy. He is available when you need him, takes his job seriously, and is a pleasure to work with. He has solid knowledge of the downtown area and learns about available apartments and building specifics so that he's ready to answer your questions. I strongly recommend Zack for anyone seeking a broker who cares.

Art Jalandoni was absolutely amazing!! He's one of the best brokers I've ever worked with. He really listens to what you need and tries his best to find whatever suits your needs- and he's incredibly personable. He makes the entire process much less stressful and he's just so kind!

- Christopher A. - Yelp,   March 27, 2014
 
I have lived in New York City for years and have found most brokers rude, uncaring, and negligent. With our lease coming to expiration and the building turning single family condo, we knew we had to find a place and with a deadline. For 2 weeks I worked on meeting brokers and seeing apartments. Not one showed me an apartment I was looking for (and I am extremely detail-oriented when it comes to where I live) even after explaining what and where I want. Thank god for Savita! She brought my hope back for brokers. Finally someone willing to listen, ready to put in the time, and who wouldn't waste MY time. We had an apartment lined up and ready to go with Savita, and we would have taken it. However, a last minute call from an old friend gave us the opportunity of a lifetime that we couldn't say no to. Savita will definitely be the first person I call for my next move. Savita is loyal, respectful, honest, and sweet. You have confidence and peace of mind with her. I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

First impressions are everything to me. Ryan was well-dressed - wore a suit and tie. He was friendly, courteous... Not your typical realtor stiff. He was a personable guy. Looking at apartments, he listened to what I wanted and showed me a few places that fit exactly what I said within my price range. Then he showed me something a little different... Instead of all stainless in the kitchen, this place had wood paneling with butcher-block counters. Done and done. This guy knew exactly what I wanted before I even knew it. I hadn''t even CONSIDERED that combination for a kitchen before, but somehow he knew I''d love it. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Trust me... You want to work with Ryan. He knows what he''s doing.

- Ben G., Naked Apartments.com,   March 25, 2014
 
Ryan was very helpful in getting my apartment rented. In person, over the phone, and through email, Ryan was helpful, thoughtful, positive, caring, fair, and easygoing. I would recommend him to anyone looking to find or rent an apartment. He is a terrific real estate agent, and he's just a very nice guy!

If you want an honest and competent broker (that combination seems rare here in NYC) go with Andrei Turcan. He was recommended to me by a friend who had bumped into him a year after she worked with him to find an apt (she ended up going with a no-fee apt instead) but he remembered her and although she didn''t use him, he was very cordial and encouraged her to stay where she was because she had a good deal. When we worked with Andrei, he was very attentive, did his homework, gave us plenty of useful tips and paid attention to our checklist of requirements. Although we found a no-fee apartment ourselves, I will definitely call him again on my next apartment hunt.

- Elise M. from Yelp.com,   March 25, 2014
 
Ryan Long was extremely helpful in helping my friend and I locate an apartment within our parameters, and then quickly processing us through the application and into the apartment, even coordinating with the landlord to allow us to move in a week ahead of the scheduled move in date. After the first property we saw with him didn't work out, he followed up with us by sending us a number of properties that were in the location and price range that we were searching for, and was very responsive in setting up appointments to view properties. He was very clear and fair about any and all fees involved, and there were never any surprises thrown our way at any point in the process. I highly recommend working with him to make moving around NYC as easy as possible.

To start by buying or renting a car, boat, house or just about anything that you need to spend at least a year with its a headache and I don''t want to participate. I had the fortune to work with Kevin Dumont as I was looking for a place to rent. It was cold miserable, slushy rainy winter day a few weeks ago. For once I was not even prepared with an umbrella. After speaking with him for 10 mins. He got to the point and showed me over 8 properties with incredible patience and dedication. Lots of walking under the rain. With a very refreshing optimistic point of view. The last apartment we saw was exactly what I had in mind all along. Unfortunately, it had an offer. However, Kevin was willing to help me put in mine and see where we could get with it. I backed out of it because I didn''t want to lock myself down until the offer went through which he explained very well. All and all, by the end of the day I felt like I was checking out places with a friend. Kevin is super personable and follows up all the way. I dealt with half a dozen realtors and Kevin was 1 of two that was not shady and super nice to deal with. Very upfront and knowledgeable. Even when I did not rent fro him.... I find him to be an excellent Realtor and I will suggest him to anyone looking for a broker... Thanks Kevin for the help...

Amy helped me and my wife renting a 3bd upperwest side. Amy was very knowledgable and responsible. She arranged all details on a timely manner. We would strongly recommend Amy to anyone who is looking for an apartment in the busy city.

This is the second time that we have used the talents of Eyal Zabari to find an apartment to buy in New York City. A few years ago he found an apartment for our daughter down in the Greenwich Village area. She remains ecstatically happy there. More recently Eyal found an apartment for my son in Midtown. We gave him the desired location, apartment size, and type of building and Eyal found an exact match. It is not often that you find a sales professional that has the customer’s best interests in mind. Eyal does not try to “package” the locations that he is showing you. He is both straight forward and honest and works very hard to find exactly what you want. His follow through is beyond compare. He leaves no detail unresolved. I wholeheartedly recommend Eyal if you are looking for a home in New York City in any price range.

Scott was a dream to work with to find an apartment! He quickly understood our needs and preferences when it came to location, apartment features and style, and he structured the apartment tours efficiently. When we chose an apartment, he handled all of the paperwork seamlessly. Highly recommend working with Scott!

I was impressed by Zack's professionalism and his proactive attitude in helping me with my search. I was new to the NYC rental market and Zack shared his expert knowledge, guiding me through the different factors to consider when approaching the the search. I would highly recommend Zack to anyone looking for their next home in the city.

Hi Milan and thank you for the follow up. We love it. Just moved in last Tuesday so still settling, but so happy we found this place and that the management was flexible with our situation. Thank you for all your hard work on this one. Say hi to your beautiful girls for us

Posted on Yelp: Gilad was a pro. He worked very hard for me and my family to make sure we would find a great new home that met all of our criterias. Not too pushy, but enough pressure to keep us aware of the fast moving rental world in NYC. Punctual, knowledgeable, friendly. You''re in good hands with Gilad.

- Charles D.,   March 10, 2014
 
Posted on YELP: I had a fabulous experience with Gilad- he was professional and really knew the buildings. I moved here from the Midwest and was trying to find a place on my own. Working with Gilad showed me why brokers are important. He took the time to understand what I wanted and helped me to find a place that I love. Gilad knows the buildings and finds one to help you find a place that feels like home. I would highly recommend working with Gilad to find the right place for you.

Amy Wang was a fantastic help in finding and negotiating the apartment that i bought last week. Since Oct 2013, she has been working with me to find a good investment property. After some trying, we closed the transaction recently. Amy was representing my benefit when I was not NY and I have no doubt that she negotiated the best possible price for me. I recommended Amy and Anchor Associates to friends of mine. I look forward to working with Amy in the future and know that she and her team will help me find good investment opportunities. --Zillow

Had the pleasure of recently working with Deresia. We were under a deadline to find a great apartment. She was available for all of my questions and concerns. She worked with us from start to finish and even followed up after the lease was signed to make sure we were happy.

If you need an agent, call Helene! We recently rented an apartment with the help of Helene from Anchor. Having gone through the process before with other agents in the city, our expectations were not high that she would serve our best interest. Well, she proved us completely wrong and showed that there are still agents out there that genuinely want to help you find the apartment that you want, for the price that you can afford. She was upfront and honest about all the fees, no fees, etc, which led to no last minute surprise as we are ready to sign the lease. She was also always available and very responsive during and following our application for the unit we had chosen. She really made our apartment hunt as easy as can be, which is saying a lot in this city. We plan on staying in our new apartment for a while, but should we ever look to move again she will be the person we call to help us, and we would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.

Kelly was wonderful to work with. She found us several excellent options within our budget, and was prompt and supportive throughout. She always made herself available to answer all of our questions and concerns, regardless of the day or time. This was our first experience looking for apartments in NYC and she made it very straightforward and painless. I highly recommend working with her.

Florin Hoxha was a pleasure to work with. He treated us like people, and not just dollar signs. He listened closely to the details of exactly what we were looking for and he worked hard to find the right fit, showing us spots that no other brokers had been able to find for us. He truly felt like a partner to us in our apartment search. It felt like he took genuine interest and pleasure in finding us the perfect apartment, even after the 3rd time we asked to see the same apartment - He showed up with a smile on his face to let us in. He''s helpful and accommodating and did everything he could to get us the best deal possible with the apartment we wanted. He negotiated some excellent concessions on our behalf and we ended up with a great deal on a great place. I''d work with him again in a heartbeat.

I absolutely vouch for Art from Anchor and would refer him to anyone I know looking for an apartment in NYC. Unlike many people in the industry, he is truly a class act and treats his customers as people, not just dollar signs.

Zsolt is an absolute gem. He is very resourceful and knowledgeable about the market, and most importantly a pleasure to be with. He is extremely responsive to individual needs and has a wonderful way with people, as well as sound negotiation skills to get his clients what they want. I have referenced him to a number of very close friends all of whom speak very highly of him.

He is totally dedicated to finding you the perfect place. He is patient and on time and works quickly. He cares about finding a place to make his clients happy and checks in on the details as deals are being made. He clearly loves his job and has a great work ethic and great taste. Truly a pleasure to work with!

My boyfriend and I used Jo (Jhosmarty) Castillo when moving from Hoboken NJ into Manhattan. Jo was extremely helpful in showing us all different types of apartments in the Upper East side while keeping in mind our needs and budget. She was friendly, very flexible with our busy schedules and always available to answer our many questions throughout the process. Jo ended up finding us the perfect apartment and continued to offer her help and support throughout our entire move. We would highly recommend Jo to anyone looking for an apartment in Manhattan!! She did an amazing job!

I cannot express how wonderful and helpful our broker, Nick Campbell, was during our apartment search. He is the opposite of the pushy NYC brokers we had dealt with before. My roommate and I really felt like he listened to us and wanted to put us in the best apartment possible, as opposed to trying to get us to jump on the most expensive apartment so he could get a higher broker fee. Nick worked with our very crazy and disparate schedules, was available to answer any question even when we texted him at 11pm, and actually made the process of apartment hunting fun and exciting. I''m happy to report that we just moved into our new place over the weekend and couldn''t be happier. I cannot recommend Nick enough.

I cannot tell you how refreshing it was to work with Nicole and Howard. After looking for an aparment for weeks with pushy and irritating agents, I was so happy to have found both of them. Nicole really listened to what I was looking for and showed me listings within my reported budget. I was able to find a great apartment with everything I wanted. They worked around my schedule and were available for any questions I had. Renting an apartment in NYC can be a long process but everything went smoothly thanks to them. I couldnt be happier in my new apartment!

Nicole helped me to find a place in the city in the span of a weekend. She was personable and straightforward, and prompt to my emails, calls and texts. Felt that I had her full undivided attention when we were looking at apartments and that she was personally vested in finding me a great place. Nicole was the only broker I used to find my apartment and I would recommend her to friends. When my lease is up and if I'd like to move again, I plan on calling Nicole to find my next place!!

This review is for Nicole Winthrop. Nicole did an outstanding job finding me and my wife an apartment. Both of us were new to the city, short on time, and coming from remote locations. She listens well, communicates well, is overwhelmingly responsive, professional and very flexible with her schedule. I would highly recommend Nicole to anybody looking for a property in New York.

Being new to the city and short on time, I contacted Jimmy for some help in finding housing. I knew that I would use Anchor Associates after my first chat with Jimmy, as he took great care and time to detail every step of the NYC apartment rental procedure for me. He was able to find several apartments that suited my preferences and budget, and I was ecstatic to find something during our first outing. Jimmy was very patient with my indecisive mind and encouraged me to hold out until I knew I had found the right apartment. He took me from Chelsea, to the UWS, to the UES, and then back to the UWS when I wanted to take a look at one apartment again, all in the same day. Those horror stories of Manhattanites and their housing experiences definitely didn''t apply to me! When I finally settled on an apartment, the application and approval process was fast and efficient, and Jimmy even offered to help me move my stuff into my new home! All in all, I had a wonderful experience with Jimmy and Anchor Associates, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a broker in NYC.

This review is for Helene Campbell -- she is awesome to work with! On my first day of search I saw about 9 apartments in the UWS with a couple of brokers from other companies. It gave me a good grasp of what was out there but I was not feeling satisfied. I stumbled upon Anchor Associates and texted Helene. She responded right away and asked for a phone call. Before Helene, I had gotten so used to having only text conversations with brokers initially that when she wanted to speak over the phone, I got a sense that she REALLY wanted to get to know me and that she cared deeply for her clients. This turned out to be very true. A few hours after the phone call, we met. She had a folder full of listings she thought might interest me. Some I had already seen with other brokers and she was very cautious and honest about not even entering the premise because she didn''t want me to pay double the fee if I decided to go with them. Every single apartment she showed me met my budget precisely and she was always prepared for apartment access (no playing key tag with other brokers, no waiting around for super to show up, etc). I spent 2 days working with Helene, however I did not end up signing a lease with her. This is only because another broker showed me the apt I eventually chose just a couple of hours earlier. She had it in her magic folder of options but due to the contract agreement had to go with the broker that showed it to me first. She told me she likes to research and enjoys digging for gold. I truly believe NYC needs more agents like Helene -- she is super organized, detail-oriented, responsive and so so helpful. The whole time I felt as if I were her one and only client. I HIGHLY recommend working with her!!!

Very impressed with Nick Campbell. My roommates and I were very anxious to find a place and move in as soon as we could.

I had a great experience working with Anchor Associates Group. Nick Campbell is an awesome agent! Nick was very helpful throughout the entire process and put in a lot of time to find places that had what my roommates and I were looking for. As a first time renter I had many questions and Nick was extremely knowledgeable and reliable. It is evident that Nick is very dedicated and passionate about what he does because he went above and truly cared about us finding a good apartment (even made it fun!) Thanks to Nick we found a great place!

Nicole was fantastic and found us a few apartments that fit our criteria. She wasn't pushy about getting us into a fee apt, even though we chose one because it was a bit better than the 2nd choice that was no fee. By far the best broker we dealt with during the search and would recommend her to friends searching for a place.

We were visiting New York from Philadelphia and had two and a half days to look at 1-2 bedroom condos. Ben who was recommended by a friend greeted us at our hotel, before check-in and showed us several properties throughout the city for two days. The initial search was based on a list of possible properties that Ben had preselected with our feedback on Agentfolio. In order to use our limited time efficiently, Ben provided a driver and had prearranged our itinerary with appointments at various properties. Ben''s knowledge of NYC gave us a good feel of the prices, architecture, amenities and safety of each area. Ben is a good listener and readily modified what we saw on the second day based on our first day''s experience. The final half day involved returning to our favorite condo in the financial district. Within 5 days we had an accepted offer. He then provided assistance and guidance through the condo application process and within a month of our initial search we were condo owners. At our request he also provided useful suggestions for possible lawyers to use at closing. Ben was attentive and thoroughly professional throughout the process. Without his experience and guidance I doubt whether we would have found our condo and would certainly not have been ushered through the process so efficiently. I feel that no one could could have done better. We would definitely use his services again should the need arise.

We worked with Diane Magnuson on finding an apartment. Our budget was pretty low for NYC, and our conditions were decently extensive. Even with this, Diane was amazing. She catered to our every need, demonstrated sincere interest in our wants and needs, and showed us some great apartments. There was no misleading, shady, or vague information provided to us. She was always upfront with costs and her opinions on the apartment with regards to our wishes. She really was amazing and I would recommend working with her if you don't know what you're doing...because she does!

My roommates and I were looking for an apartment and were provided the services of Diane Magnuson. She was very helpful and knowledgable and wasn't pushy at all. It was great to have a person who was friendly, reliable and knowledgable about Manhattan's apartments. Next time we are looking for our next apartment we will without a doubt be calling Anchor Associates again.

First worked with Ben Willig at Anchor in 2009, during the search for my first Manhattan apartment. He was far and away the best agent of the many I experienced across numerous agencies. He was even proactive in helping me to negotiate the apartment price down. Fast forward to 2014, and Ben was the first and only call I made when I needed an agent to find my fourth apartment in the city. He referred me to Nick Campbell, another member of his team. Nick was a pleasure to work with and made sure we were taken care of through the process. Thanks to the well-organized search he arranged across a number of neighborhoods, it took us only 5 hours from the start of our search to finalizing the terms of a multi-year lease. I enthusiastically recommend Ben and Nick to anyone and everyone seeking an apartment in NYC.

This was my first time apartment searching in New York City and as a single female it was rather daunting. I was concerned I would be shown apartments out of my range, not in line with what I was looking for and feel pressured by a broker to part with my money. It is with such relief that none of these attributes can be applied to Nicholas at Anchor Associates. Not only did he schedule apartment viewings that met my needs he was such a support throughout the whole process. I felt as though I was apartment hunting with my friend. Nicholas guided me through each step and whenever I had questions his responses were from a considered emotive and reasoned approach, not a financial one. He understood my needs, gave me many options and weighed up the pro''s and con''s with me when I was indecisive. He was always punctual and professional and has such a warm and inviting demeanor. I could not recommend Nicholas enough. Together we found the perfect apartment for me within my budget. Whenever my needs change and I want to move, Nicholas will be the person I''m calling to assist me.

Having Scott help me around the city was a great, memorable experience. Everywhere he brought me was very well planned and clearly showed he knows how to listen and deliver. Scott is unlike anyone I’ve ever worked with, as it was obvious that he put in a lot time and effort to make sure we were happy. Scott always had a smile on his face and it felt like I had known him for years, not just a matter of days. I am eager to work with Scott again!

Franck was the lead or co-agent on the sale of my 3 apartments last year. I needed them sold quickly and at a competitive price in order to purchase a new place. Even as the process become complicated with banks and buyers, he stayed on top of things and worked to make it all happen. I had attempted to "sell by owner" before I engaged him - that was a waste of time. I should have started with Franck and saved time, money and energy.

Amy rented out my 2bd apartment that I just purchased with her help. She was such a responsible and efficient agent. Frankly, I was surprised when I heard that she rented out my apartment after two weeks. I was hesitating when assigning her the exclusive right to rent, cause I thought it would be hard to rent out in this freezing weather. But in two weeks, she did it already! Through the whole process, Amy kept me updated and discussed with me about different renting strategies. She is a smart lady and very reliable. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who need to buy or rent an apartment. -- Trulia.com, Jan 29th, 2014. CongY

Having transferred over from Europe we worked with Javed Ousman and Sebastian Murawski to get an overview over the NYC rental market which was a time consuming exercise but well worth the effort. Both were very professional and helped us in making up our minds what a realistic expectation is in this market is. Without them pushing us to a decision, we signed a lease within not even 2 weeks of looking. So both thumbs up for them, happy to recommend them. Arend S. New York, NY

Posted on YELP: Having moved 7 times in 8 years in NYC teaches you a few things and one of those is when you find an amazingly helpful broker, you keep him forever. Gilad Paz is your guy to make apartment hunting a piece of cake! I highly recommend him to anyone. Gilad''s quick, professional responsiveness got us set up in one night to check out over 10 apartments in multiple buildings. He was extremely friendly, polite, outgoing and listened to all our wants and needs. He was never pushy and was extremely helpful answering questions, telling us about different areas and buildings. His patience to even take us back to see places within the same night is a true testament that proves his goal is to really help you. Working with Gilad was such a breath of fresh air, I''m a total fan and will be recommending him to all my friends!

I had spent at least two months looking on Craigslist and various other sites on a daily basis searching for an apartment in the big apple. To no avail I found nothing; time was running out and I was really starting to panic-thank goodness I found Mike. Michael Engstrom was an absolute delight to work with from day one. Moving from out of state to New York was proving to be quite the task, also slightly overwhelming. Once I got in touch with Mike he took the reins; he listened to what I wanted in a place, he stayed within my budget without ever trying to push something on me that was out of my price range. I flew in and expected to spend the entire week looking at apartments. I met Mike Saturday morning and was pleasantly surprised by his professionalism and sincerity. He had appointments lined up all day, but the fifth showing was exactly what I was wanting. He made the experience a lot of fun-would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a place in NYC:-)

Dear Val, We''d like you to know what an incredible realtor and friend Tony Segno has been to us since we met him in November. Tony was introduced by Francois Baron, another outstanding realtor and member of your team when we moved to New York from Singapore, and were looking to buy a home in Westchester. Not only did Tony help us to find the house of our dreams - 90 Cortlandt Avenue, New Rochelle - he went above and far beyond the services that we, as clients had expected of him. He listened to us when we explained our needs and expectations - and the proof in that is that it took us just a month to find the right home for us and to close the deal. There was no time wasted looking at properties we weren''t interested in. He knew and understood clearly what we wanted. Francois had introduced Tony as the Westchester expert, and Tony proved several times over, that he is indeed that and more! He is very knowledgeable about the property market here and most certainly knows the area well. Tony helped us to successfully negotiate the purchase, he introduced us to a great attorney for the closing, and many excellent contractors for roofing, flooring, renovation and painting services that we needed for the house, and he even helped to manage them all. The move into our new home was a fairly stressful process for us all, but Tony called frequently during that period just to remind us to take things in stride. Until today, he has been persistent about following-up with the seller''s realtor (who has hardly been responsive) on various commitments the seller had made to us in the sale - commitments which the seller''s agent was to deliver upon. We are new to the area and still, Tony continues to be our first point of reference for all the things we need to get settled in our new home and in the area - whether it''s a contact for a car dealership, pediatrician, dry-cleaners, or even a great Italian restaurant in the neighbourhood. It has been a month since the closing on our home purchase, but just this morning, Tony called to ask if we would need help shovelling our driveway following last night''s winter storm. Of course, we had fully expected Tony to show up with a shovel! Tony has become a valued friend to our family. He still calls us several times a week just to ask how we''re doing and to see if he can help us in any way. We love and appreciate his patience, kindness and sense of humour - he is truly one-of-a-kind. Our three-year old daughter Anya absolutely adores him - that in and of itself speaks mountains about Tony''s character and personality. It goes without saying that Tony sets the bar for his profession, his peers and for the industry. We doubt there''s another realtor out there who is like him. He is clearly Anchor Associates'' most valuable member and we hope that he will be recognized for it. Many thanks.

Zack Haluszczak responded to my request extremely quickly. He was thoughtful in compiling a list of properties to show me and after not seeing something I wanted the first day, he followed up promptly and came up with a list of properties that better suited my needs based on the feedback I gave him during the first day. He''s an extremely pleasant person to be around and demonstrated great patience and understanding with my decision making process. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to for an apartment in NYC.

I had a great time working with Andrew Vo as he helped me purchase my first home in NYC! He's very accommodating and adjusts quickly to your needs. He takes the time to answer your questions and explain things to you, and he never takes long to respond to an email. From what I've heard, my experience was extremely smooth and I didn't encounter any bumps; which I attribute to Andrew's experience and expertise in the field.

We used Robert Esposito at Anchor RE to find our apartment, he was wonderful. He was quick and attentive and very responsive to what we were looking for. Our window was very small and what we needed was very specific. We did not waste any time seeing things that were not appropriate for us. He really listened and he understood our needs. He was there through the whole process and we can recommend him highly. Robert gets 5 stars from us!

Derek Chan helped me when I was looking for an apartment. He is a complete professional, and was always prompt, courteous, and totally prepared to answer my questions about potential apartments. He also was familiar with the apartments he showed me...I would not hesitate to ask for him when you need a real estate professional.

Nicole Winthrop is fantastic - would very much recommend her support! We had to move apartments after 2 years in a fantastic 2 bed, furnished apartment in the East Village. Having been throuhgly spoilt by NYC real estate we were very fearful about a move to pastures new and had very specific requirements. Nicole showed us a great range of places and did not give up after our extreme pickiness and found us a great apartment in the neighborhood we were looking for, with red brick wall NYC features! She is a pleasure to interact with while looking at the apartment and on the way in between them - always ready with trusted insight, guidance and advice. She also acted extremely fast to ensure that we got our names down first to close out the deal. Thanks so much Nicole - you did an awesome job!

I transitioned jobs from Washington, D.C. to NYC a couple of weeks before Christmas. Despite knowing many people willing to let me couch surf in Manhattan, I wanted to lockdown an apartment before heading back home for the holidays. Needless to say, I was a prime candidate to be pushed into an apartment quickly by an "enterprising" broker, regardless of my true desires. After dealing with some unscrupulous characters who were clearly out to get people in the door and into an apartment as quickly as possible to turn a profit, I got in touch with Nicole W. at Anchor Associates. Nicole completely broke the mold, as she was sensitive to my expressed particulars regarding budget, size, amenities, commutation, and location. Whereas previous brokers shrouded their pitches in smoke-screens that are better likened to threats about limited availability, landlord shortcomings, etc. than true knowledge of the market, Nicole was always candid, patient, and knowledgable about each apartment we viewed. Nicole understood that I wanted to sign a lease before the holidays, but she made a point to make sure I didn't enter into a contract due to a time squeeze. Nicole's attention to the customers' desires, rather than her commission is one characteristic that sets her apart. Other factors that set Nicole apart is that she is quite pleasant, interesting (she teaches English as a second language), and knowledgable. She makes the apartment hunt what it should be - in a word, exciting. Ultimately, tenants are looking for an apartment that will make them happy when waking up in the morning, hosting friends, relaxing, and coming home from work. It is often difficult and a bit overwhelming searching for an apartment in NYC, but Nicole sheds a lot of light on each neighborhood and the commute you will be making each day. Ultimately, thanks to Nicole, I found a great apartment that fit my budget. Lastly, she was willing to work late to fill out paperwork at their very professional, conveniently located office (another testament to her customer service and work-ethic). She even showed up to the lease signing, and sent a follow-up card with a house-warming present. I highly recommend contacting Nicole W. when searching for an apartment in New York.

Ryan was a pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable and prompt to find apartments within my specific parameters. I would highly recommend him.

Agent Andrei Turcan took me and my wife through some great places in Manhattan recently one night and he couldn''t have been more helpful. In just a little time he made sure to find great options within our means that met all of our needs without having to settle for less. When we prioritized location (location, location) he gave us a great option literally steps from our work (as opposed to the 45-min train ride we were expecting). He prioritized our needs with our wants and could not have been a nicer guy. I would recommend him to anyway that has a fixed budget and will be on your side, as opposed to the brokers trying to get you into places that will profit them the most.

This review is for Ben Willig. We started our apartment searching journey with Ben 5 months ago when our friend referred Ben to us. Ben is the most patient and the least pushy real estate agent I have ever come across, who has a tremendous knowledge and connection in the real estate market in Manhattan. We just closed our apartment today, and things went so smoothly and stress-free, it''s been incredible. Ben respects your opinion, advises you to put in the best purchase price (from your standpoint) and helps you to find the best value apartments. When we were comparing a few apartments, he actually recommended the lower-priced apartment to us, and I was quite surprised he actually did that! This is all because he puts a client''s interest in front of his own - which is a rarity these days. and we cannot thank him enough for all his and his team''s (Andrew in Ben''s team has also been tremendously helpful) support and guidance. We actually referred a couple of our friends to Ben and we look forward to continuing our relationship with him.

After 6+ years of living in the same Manhattan apartment I finally made the decision to move. I was pretty nervous about the whole process and really didn''t want to feel pressured into signing a lease on a place I didn''t fully love. I contacted Howard Hauptman, gave him my laundry list of must-haves, and my budget. He showed my roommate and I some great apartments that came in under budget and had great amenities. Once the application process started Howard coordinated every aspect and did a lot of back of forth between us and the various other parties involved. We didn''t feel any pressure from him and felt that he truly listened to us and most of all cared about the final outcome. I highly recommend Howard and will definitely contact him when I''m ready to move again!

Nick Campbell and Jimmy Fernandes were extremely helpful and by far the nicest brokers I have ever worked with. I was against paying a broker fee completely, but after working with Nick and Jimmy i wanted to give them my business as well as recommend them to all my friends looking for an apartment. They were patient and did not push us into an apartment at all. they left the decision completely up to my boyfriend and I and they were kind and helpful without making me feel bad for asking a million questions. We plan to use Nick and Jimmy for all our apartment searches going forward and I highly suggest them if you are in the market for a NYC apartment and are looking for understanding, caring people!

I initially met Konstantin when I was on the hunt for my next apartment to purchase. As soon as I met him I felt at ease, he wasn''t the usual hard selling realtor but actually listened to what I was looking for and was very patient as he took me around the city to see about 50 properties over the Summer. In seeing how professionally he approached searching for an apartment for me, I then asked him to look at selling my property aswell. His knowledge of the process was so extremely helpful and he knew exactly where to price my apartment so that it sold at the first open house! Konstantin has a quiet confidence about him, he''s friendly, very easy to work with but most of all I really felt he was on "my side" and only wanted the best for his clients and for them to be happy. I''m pleased to say he found me my dream apartment and held my hand all the way through the stressful process. I highly recommend Konstantin! Source LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/kzaliznyak/

Jhosmarty was SO friendly and down-to-earth. She dealt with the management company to negotiate on my behalf in regards to me not having 100% of the money required to move-in and was able to work everything out for me. I hunted on Craigslist for weeks and saw nothing but shady brokers listing apartments for less than I knew they were worth, or crappy apartments for too much, photos of apartments that weren't representative of the actual apartment, etc. I had read horror stories about less reputable brokers. I was exhausted and didn't want to search through crap anymore. I had always been hesitant to work with Realtors with higher fees (12%, 15%) but I now understand that you get what you pay for and it's worth it if you experience high anxiety around finding an apartment. She isn't pushy in the least and is willing to whatever she can to help you -always with a smile. Worth every penny. I now have an adorable apartment in Park Slope that is just what I had hoped for. Thanks Jhosmarty!

This review is for Kelly Neptune. Kelly helped me find an alcove studio in midtown west and she showed me around 7-8 buildings all within my criteria. She helped me with restaurant ideas and told me about the neighborhood which helped me with my decision making. She was always responsive and got me through the application process which was surprisingly more difficult than I originally thought. She negotiated my rent down which was a bonus for me as I know the rental market is strong. I have been here for a month and I love it so far and I plan on recommending Kelly to other friends!

"I recently rented an apartment through A.K. Ibrahim and thought he was great! He wasn't like the usual pushy broker who just puts you in a tiny space and demands money, he took my budget into consideration and was able to show me everything within my price range. Not only was he a genuinely nice person, he also found me a place quickly and did not waste my time. If I ever need another place in the future I will definitely use him again and would not hesitate sending a friend over his way!"

She asked questions and really got to know who we are. She also gave recommendations of places to go eat, laundry and dog services. Again very pleased. Anyone who is lead by Irma will be completely satisfied." -K. Mason

Just signed my first NYC apartment with Nick Campbell and Jimmy Fernandes! These guys have got to be two of the best in the business. The most real, friendly, knowledgeable and smart guys I have met in my hunt for an NYC apt. These guys took me out in early December to find a spot but the girlfriend didn''t want to commit to a Jan 1 move in. Called these guys up again for a second round and they were more than happy to take me out for a second time. Found the perfect spot and these guys handled the rest. Very attentive and quick response to our questions. Will definitely be recommending these guys to my friends. Big shout out to Nick and Jimmy from Anchor Associates on 57th street. Thanks fellas

We felt very comfortable working with Ryan throughout the entire process, and he found us the apartment that we now love!

Posted on Yelp!: After seeing countless apartments searching far and wide throughout queens and manhattan with other brokers, Gilad Paz thankfully with one viewing found the perfect apartment for me right in my budget. Also to include he is a nice guy to be around, very friendly upbeat and positive but mostly he gets the job done and gets you in the dream place. I highly recommend Gilad.

- Terrell P.,   January 13, 2014
 
Posted on YELP: Gilad Paz did a fantastic job! I flew into New York specifically to find an apartment before my move date, and so we only had one day together to find a suitable place. He dedicated the day to me, we saw close to a dozen properties and every single one pretty much matched my criteria to the t, which is a reflection that Gilad took the time and effort to prepare for my visit. He gave good advice along the way, educated me on the NY rental market, and was really fun to hang out with for the day. In the end, we found a place that I adored and signed the lease docs the following day, and he helped me throughout the whole process. Highly recommend Gilad if you're looking for a place in NY, you won't be disappointed. I couldn't have done it without him!

I worked with Howard Hauptman from Anchor, who I had called after seeing his listing in the NY Times real estate section for the beautiful apartment that I ended up buying. From the first time we spoke through closing, Howard was very attentive, detail oriented, trustworthy, fully involved, and one step ahead of the game. He attended the inspection, walk through and closing, and was fully dedicated to helping me secure the apartment of my dreams. He also has a great sense of the industry, so he was able to provide helpful information and insights to help me secure the apartment and feel confident about my purchase!

-" I had a home in Lords Valley, Pa that we had listed with 3 different agents. Although we were dissatisfied with the last agent we let her list it twice. After trying for 5 years to sell the home we took it off the market. After speaking with Fanny, who was familiar with Pa, she recommended an agent for us to list it with. We interviewed the agent and decided to give her the listing. Within a month the house was sold at a satisfactory price. The agent was professional, informative and always available to answer our questions. Needless to say we were very thankful for Fanny's excellent referral. We have been friends since, and wouldn't think twice about going to Fanny for future real estate assistance."

It was both a prosperous time in my career and one in which I was able to learn a tremendous amount about the business of real estate and the importance of building and maintaining client relationships.

I wholeheartedly recommend Fanny as someone I will continue to work with in the future."

Posted on YELP: Gilad Paz is the best! Backstory: Fresh in NYC this fall, my boyfriend and I eagerly set out to find the "perfect apartment! In a great part of town! Budget friendly! Close to transport! Bars! Shops! Restaurants! Laundry?" This enthusiasm was quickly drained after long and painful 3 days traversing the city with another broker. We were just about ready to accept that choosing an apartment within our budget was going to entail balancing the lesser of evils (not ideal part of town, no amenities, outdated, etc.) when I answered a Craigslist posting by Gilad. I, skeptically at this point, agreed to meet him to check out some apartments. The next day, he graciously treated me to a coffee, and we set out on the hunt. I liked him immediately - he was nice, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable about the city & available properties. We looked at about 10 places, each, to my delight, better than the last. I was honestly bewildered at how my other broker had missed all these available spots. Gilad seemed to have a good relationship with numerous property owners, which helped a lot. He offered insightful opinions, without being pushy. He was patient, and shared in the excitement I felt upon the realization that we could actually find a place that fit our criteria. We ended up signing a lease that night, and are now settled into a place we love, and so grateful for Gilad for that. He even sent us a house warming gift! If we had stayed with the other broker, we''d be paying essentially the same amount for a lackluster place. If you are looking for a new apt, this is absolutely the place to go! Call Gilad now!

I was referred to Fanny by a former client of hers from when she owned her Executive Search firm. I am in the process of being transferred to another state within the end of this year and want to purchase a home wherever I land. I had already spoken to other real estate agents who either quickly said, "If it's not in NY, we can't help you, but call us if it will be" or "Just call me when you're ready". But, from the moment I spoke to Fanny and she said, "Ok, let me pick up the phone and make it happen", I knew we were in good hands. She took the time to thoroughly explain everything from what she termed, "proper disclosure", to buyer services, and what is owed to us by any real estate person we deal with. I'm sure, like many people out there, I'm not alone in having had no idea there were, as she explained, "so many things that are mandatory to be given to buyers, sellers or even renters by every real estate person we deal with." She has already tapped into her network and interviewed a handful of out- of - state Realtors, to be able to quickly get started when I am ready. I had heard great things about this woman: a builder of relationships from a past of securing you an executive position with her clients, but I can say of the present in the lost art of customer service and care, finding you a home, or anyone who can help her to help you do so. Beautiful eyes, radiant smile, quick-wit, and fire-burst of personality is what you instantly see in her perfectly put together "petite" package- but, behind it is a sharp and savvy "giant" that captivates anyone for a lifetime. Hands down, an amazing professional that we will work with and refer to everyone!

Let me preface by saying that I have always wanted to live in Manhattan, its been a dream of mine for many years now. After living in Hoboken, NJ for several years I started searching for apartments to rent in Manhattan in January 2010. After working with a few brokers and searching nearly every inch of Manhattan, I decided to stay in Hoboken, but keeping my ultimate goal of living in Manhattan firmly in sight. At that time I saw many places, but was not very impressed with the brokers I was working with. The brokers were not listening to what I was telling them and kept trying to show me places that didn't fit my criteria, they wasted my time and I ended up getting very frustrated and gave up. I re-started my search for a rental apartment and began working with Fanny Montalvo and and herthe team. I immediately knew I had found the right firm to work with as Fanny and her team made me feel very comfortable and really listened to me and what I wanted in an apartment. Throughout the search process I never felt like I was being pressured into leasing an apartment I didn't want, it was honestly very easy and straight forward from day 1 until closing. I ended up renting a furnished studio apartment in a new condo building in the Upper West Side. After renting for a year I decided that I wanted to purchase an apartment and called on Fanny again to assist in my search. I decided to purchase a unit in the same building I was renting in. I have owned several condo's in NJ over the years, but I can tell you that buying an apartment in Manhattan is a whole different ball game and not an easy process. Fanny and staff made the negotiation and closing process as painless as possible. I have referred a few friends to Fanny as I know they will be in good hands. Thank you Fanny, as you helped me fulfill a life long dream and I could not be happier.

Ben was a pleasure to work with. He stayed within my price range and within the areas of the city that I expressed an interest in. Ben was always available by phone or email and made sure to always give me his undivided attention.

Posted on YELP: We recently moved to New York from San Diego. After several viewings with "brokers" who were either leasing agents for specific buildings or other brokers who were determined to show us properties that did not meet our requirements, my wife contacted Gilad Paz from Anchor. His attitude was refreshing in contrast to our previous experiences. He showed us several great properties and we were able to make an informed decision about what we ultimately wanted: a large apartment with a Manhattan city and Hudson views, in a secure building, with all of the amenities. Working with Gilad was a great experience and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for new space in NYC.

Diane is a first-rate NFP director and fundraiser. She has excellent people skills, and a genuine appreciation for the establishment of the arts.

Diane was a great asset during her time at OATS. She really helped us build a stronger development program, increase and diversify our fundraising, and improve our strategic perspective. She one of the most dedicated people I've ever worked with and really "gets" nonprofit missions. She's is a talented fundraiser and a wonderful person!

iCivics retained Diane to help with grantwriting to support a new strategic initiative. I have been consistently impressed with the quality and timeliness of her work - she is always on or ahead of schedule, gives her work great care, and treats deadlines seriously. This project required considerable learning to get up to speed on the details, and she educated herself on the subject matter with great enthusiasm and success. I have found her to have high integrity and is moreover very reasonable when it comes to rates -- especially given how efficient she is. I recommend Diane highly because of the tremendous work she has done for iCivics as a grantwriter.

Diane's work with my company Gorilla Rep was game-changing for us. It began my long study of NFP fundraising and development, and Diane was a brilliant mentor and experienced, exemplary practitioner. Her depth of understanding of what was going on around the company and within it early in its progress was inspiring and helped propel us further that I thought we could reach. It was always inspiring to work with Diane and she has remained a key advisor for me and Gorilla Rep, and a true friend.

I came to know Diane in 2008 when Project FIND was selected to be a beneficiary of BGC's Charity Day. This is a one day, multi-million dollar event conducted globally in the BGC offices. Proceeds raised go to hand selected charities at the local offices. In working with Diane, I experienced first hand her committment to her role, and to the people she served. She was unwavering in her thought leadership and efforts to see that Project FIND both gained as much exposure to a new base of donors, and achieved heightened public awareness for the work Project FIND engages in and the population they serve. I've remained in contact with Diane since then. I am always amazed by her ceaseless energy for what she does, and her ability to blend her high level of professionalism with her passion. Diane would be a valued asset to any organization.

This review is for Belinda Cruz. Actually this is my second time to go to her. Last time she helped my sister find an ideal apt in the heart of Manhattan. She appeared to be as professional, hard working and considerate as usual. I appreciate so much for her help and could not be happier with the experience. We have three girls to share an apt in midtown west with limited budget, and wish to settle down at the peak period of time. It seemed a not easy situation for us: we are international students with heavy school burdens hoping for living near campus--Columbus Circle. New York City is much more competitive than we thought, even the rental markets. I just contacted her two months before my intended moving day. She kept it in mind and tried hard to cater to we three girls'' different and changing requirements. She always showed patient and never pushed us for decision. But once we decided to have a try to apply, she was more than effective and efficient. Finally, we got the ideal apt with satisfaction. I can''t image how we could do without her help. More impressively, Belinda is responsible and trustworthy. Every time she kept me updated about the situation of a specific apt, responding messages in seconds, even in the midnight. She, as well as her company is working in transparency because they will not lead you in traps. On the contrary, after moving, she did not stop caring. Please do not hesitate to contact Belinda if you want to settle down in New York City.

I highly recommend Ben Willig for his professionalism and expertise. Ben handled the sale of my condominium in Manhattan, New York. The entire sales process (from listing to closing) took less than 4 months. This was due, in large measure, to Ben's expertise - from understanding the real estate market in New York and appropriately (and competitively) listing the apartment, to negotiating and handling every aspect of showing the apartment and negotiating the terms of the sale. Ben was always responsive, professional and knowledgeable - with answers to every question and helpful strategy to close on a relatively complex sale. I was confident in Ben and knew everything was going to be taken care of in the time frame that I needed. I couldn't be happier with my experience, and thank Ben for all of his hard work.

I''d highly recommend Zack Haluszczak to help you find the right manhattan apartment. As with most apt seekers in nyc, time is of the essence. Zack was punctual and professional throughout the process and was able to find just the right apartment within the price range I specified. Personal and non-pressuring, characteristics seldom found in brokers in the city! I''d absolutely recommend Zack to friends.

Coming from Texas, I was a newbie in apartment rentals in New York City. Despite multiple hours of online research regarding renting in the city and looking up apartments on different sites, I could not find what I was looking for and what I did like were already taken in a flash. I had to start my work soon so I resorted to brokers to help me out. I''ve been through at least three brokers from different companies, in which 2 out of 3 were borderline rude, pushy, impatient, and ultimately yielded unsatisfactory results. Fortunately my roommate found Victoria Caputo from Anchor Associates who was very sweet and patient. She took us to see some apartments that were very different, as a means of making us realize what we get for our budget and to factor in the pros and cons. She was very honest in describing to us the apartments and never seemed to sugarcoat anything just to make us buy it. We opted to increase our price range a little bit and decided to go for the luxury apartment in Murray Hill, which was one of the apartments she showed us on the first day. The application process was a little rocky due to the busy schedules between me and my roommate. But after we got everything together, it was overall pretty smooth. We could not be any happier with the apartment that we chose and we have Victoria to thank for that.

Amy just helped us renting a 4 bd upperwest side. It was hard to find a nice apartment during winter time around Columbia University. We fell in love with the first apartment that Amy showed us. We were the first one viewing the total renovated apartment. Everything was just out of shipping box. Amy accelerated the whole process for us to move in in one week since we were in a big hurry. We really appreciated all her effort and time. -- Dec. 16th, 2013. Trulia.com

Zack Haluszczak was very helpful throughout the process. He showed me good listings related to what I was looking for and wasn''t pushy. I ended up renting an apartment he showed me and he negotiated a better fee for me. I would recommend him to anyone looking to rent an apartment.

My wife and I recently relocated from Vancouver to New York. Knowing well that rental apartments were a hot commodity in the Big Apple, we had contacted a few brokers prior to our departure from Vancouver. Our main request was that they find us an apartment with an in-suite washer and dryer in Astoria, Queens. The agents wanted us to contact them as soon as we arrived so they could begin the search - it was "no problem", they could find us one with ease. Upon arrival, I contacted our ''friendly'' brokers. All except two had the decency to return our e-mails and phone calls. One actually e-mailed back saying that an apartment with a washer/dryer combo was unheard of anywhere in New York, let alone Queens, and that we should forget about looking for one! Talk about pompous, arrogant attitudes and we have not even met them yet. So, I''m like, whatever happened to the helpful, decent and hardworking people who call themselves Realtors in New York? I guess they are a dying breed unlike in days gone by, where they would hustle to appease clients. Perhaps, given the fact that there is a demand for real estate in New York, they are too lazy to walk the beat and rely solely on owners who come to them with their listings. Long story short, a couple days later while browsing through real estate websites we stumbled upon a listing by Ms. Alma Salaj of Anchor Associates and sent her an e-mail. She contacted me right away seeking more details of my search and offered to assist us. Alma followed up with a courtesy call the following day to make sure we were all on the same page. After our conversation, she repeated the requests we had, including the washer/dryer request, and said she will find exactly what we wanted. I was skeptical, but I guess she was not, and I''ll get to that in a moment. That very evening I received a call from Alma. Voila! Not one, she had found us several apartments in Astoria and vouched, we would be happy with what we saw. She also took upon herself to make appointments with building managers, to show us the apartments without us asking. Alma made the time to call around and even personally checked the buildings prior to offering them to us. Two days later, we visited the buildings. Alma was correct we were very happy with the listings she had picked. They were not only within our price range; they also had the amenities we were looking for and in our preferred neighborhood. We were surprised and relieved at the same time. What we noticed too, was that Alma appeared to have a very good rapport with the building managers and Supers in the buildings we visited. She clearly did her homework prior to committing and showed how much she cared. Alma was not about wasting our time or hers! What struck us most about Alma is that she was respectful, genuine in her dealings and upfront about everything, including her broker''s fee, which was one month, paid by the owners (No Fee). There was no second-guessing anything. She was patient explaining how things worked in New York and prepared us beforehand. She also did a walkthrough of the apartments with us, helped with the lease signing process and was there every step of the way - representing our interests. Our company relocates people in and out of New York all the time, and because of the positive experience with Alma, we have given her name and Anchor Associates to our Human Resources Department for future referrals. Alma is definitely a stellar agent who knows what she does, a great listener, and a fantastic broker to have on your side. We recommend Alma Salaj 100% to anyone!

Gilad is friendly, hard-working, and knowledgeable about the city of New York. He is motivated and proactive, and will devote time to assessing your needs and desires in finding the perfect home for you. He taught us valuable information we hadn''t considered about the Big Apple, which helped us to better understand which areas of town would work best for our needs and why. Any neophyte New Yorker could benefit from working with Gilad Paz when moving to this big, new city. Additionally, he always has a smile on his face.

This review is for Victoria Caputo. 1. She found us our apartment in the one day we had in town by showing us over 20+ units over 5+ hours. 2. She listens carefully to what you're looking for. 3. She is very flexible and caters to your schedule. 4. She is efficient. She mapped out the day thoughtfully. We had no down time whatsoever. 5. She is honest. Nothing more to say about that. 6. She does her diligence on the units she presents. 7. She stayed with us the entire time from inital viewing to the entire application process including going with us to the local bank to draft the security deposit. 8. She is a fast walker. You will find yourself keeping up with her though and shedding some pounds in the process. 9. She's easy to talk to and you don't have to worry about any awkward silences. 10. If I use a broker again, I will call her without hesitation. Thanks Victoria.

My roommates and I worked with Zack Haluszczak-- he was AMAZING. Without even knowing our wish list he took us to apartments that met all our needs. He doesn''t waste your time trying to convince you to look at something you won''t like. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND

Zachary Haluszczak was extremely helpful. He is proactive, thorough and friendly. Zack is very attentive and did an amazing job showing us many apartments that were perfect for our group.

My wife and I just moved to Manhattan from New Orleans this month and Kelly was incredibly flexible in working with us and helping us find the place of our dreams. I was just finishing school and we were unable to come to New York ourselves; however, Kelly was one of the very few real estate agents who was willing to work with my parents who offered to help us pick a place. Most of the other agents either were more than happy to turn us away and tell us we had to come ourselves or they couldn''t do anything for us. On top of that, she was awesome about keeping me up-to-date via phone and email about apartments that we were considering, and brought a lot of good options to us for consideration. We looked extensively online, on craig''s list, and on other websites, but Kelly had access to better real estate listings than anything we could find. We''re planning to possibly buy a place in the next year or two and we definitely plan to follow-up with Kelly for that too. Overall, we''d highly recommend Kelly! Sincerely, Karthik K.

Searching for an apt is always a stressful time, but working with Andre was a great experience! He made the entire process stress-free by always responding to my needs and questions promptly. I have moved in NYC several times before and always dealt with realtors never getting back to me, never showing up to viewings on time, and showing me places out of my price range: however, Andre was perfect! Professional, timely, and never pushy. He did all of his research on all the apartments he showed me, and filled me in on all the details of the buildings/management companies and neighborhoods. He showed me several apartments that fit my needs and let me chose the right one for me with no pressure and even got the rent down. I love my new apartment and never would have gotten it without Andre''s help. He was the most professional realtor I have ever worked with and would recommend him to everyone I know!

My husband and I worked with Carol Rodehau who was one of the best agents we have ever worked with! We literally went through 6 different brokers until Carol had been recommended to us through some friends of ours. Not only was she personable and enthusiastic, but was also a very good listener, patient and empathetic to what we had hoped we would be able to find in our location and budget. I cant tell you how many people cant believe how great of a value for the rent that we pay at our place...Did i mention we have an in-unit washer& driver, all new wood floors, stainless steel appliances, lots of sunlight with 1500 sq ft of living space!!!!!!!??????? If your tired of pushy, impatient brokers then look no further then Carol Rodehau at Anchor Associates!!!!!!!

A few months back we closed on the sale of our Co-op at 666 Pelham Road in New Rochelle. Tony Segno was our representative. A friend of ours referred him to us. We never actually met Tony in person as we live in Florida but I do want to say in speaking with him I felt like I knew him for years. He has that warm friendly personality that you just connect to. Along the way we did run into some issues with the buyer as most real estate transactions do. Tony just went out of his way to help us get everything in place. He was just truly amazing. I have met a lot of real estate agents over the years and Tony is just at the top of the list. His personality and professionalism makes him a very special employee. I just wanted to thank you for having Tony on your team. Sincerely, Deborah & Richard Suozzo

I had a chaotic living situation and was very anxious about how it would all turn out--and Savita truly came to the rescue! I didn't know until the last minute whether my lease would be renewed or not (my landlord and I were negotiating how much he would raise the rent so I didn't have a definitive answer). So, I had to conduct an apartment search without even knowing whether or not I would ultimately need a new apartment! Savita was completely understanding of this crazy situation and helped me through my whole hunt! She was so patient and friendly throughout the whole process and showed me some great back-up apartments in case we needed a Plan B. She took care of everything for me and I couldn't have been more satisfied with her service. Next time I need to find a new place, she will be the FIRST person I call.

My roommate and I have both lived in NYC for 2 years prior to working with Anchor Associates for our third apartment. I could not have been more pleased with Anchor Associates. We worked with both Ben Willig and Andrew Vo- who were both absolutely fantastic. Unlike many of the sketchy realty brokers you find in NYC, both Andrew and Ben took the time to speak with us about what we wanted in an apartment, they were happy to show us many different spaces, even setting aside full afternoons during the weekend to work with us. When it came to signing an apartment they took the time to explain the process and negotiate the apartment price/lease agreement. They did not rush us through the process which many brokers do. After signing our lease, they took the time to check in with us multiple times to see how we liked our apartment, even bringing over home made cookies as an apartment warming gift! Working with Anchor Associates was a great experience, I would (and have) highly recommended them to anyone looking for an apartment in NYC.

Zsolt was very professional, patient and helpful throughout the entire process and he helped me find exactly what I was looking for. He made the experience of looking for a new home as painless as possible. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market and I couldn’t recommend a better agent than him.

  November 22, 2013
 
My girlfriend and I were buying our first apartment and Zsolt was recommended by a friend. He was fantastic: * Good knowledge of the areas we were interested in and then quickly figured out what we were looking for in apartments and only showed us apartments that met these criteria. * Very good at helping us through the negotiation process - how to open the bidding, when to increase and by how much, etc. * Excellent recommendations for a mortgage broker and an attorney. Generally made the process of buying an apartment as fun as it should be.

- Mike G.,   November 22, 2013
 
Zsolt is someone you can always trust. I would 100% recommend him. He knows what he is doing and never sends you on wild goose chases. I used him to rent multiple apartments and found him to be very knowledgeable and trustworthy.

- Kristen C.,   November 22, 2013
 
Zsolt was extremely helpful in identifying a property for me which I feel will be a good fit for me socioeconomically. Since I am relocating to NYC, this was of extreme importance to me. I would highly recommend Zsolt, and in fact, our company has used him previously. He is very professional, and not the pushy hard sell type which you can easily find in the NYC real estate market.

- Tom Webb,   November 22, 2013
 
After arriving in NYC for the first time, right the following day Mr. Bene probably showed me more than 15 apartments only the first day. the apatments he showed me mostly fit my taste, and i was able to choose an apartment after searching for less than a week. He showed me my favorite place very quickly and helped the whole process go through very smoothly.101

Zsolt Bene changed my life several times! He has been my Real-Estate agent (friend) for over 8 years. He possesses a quality like no other; Integrity, trust, understanding, overall a wonderful person. He is well versed in the New York real estate world which could be complicated, overwhelming and frustrating. I have recommended him to friends and strangers from all over the world. He gets the job done...

- Brenda S B,   November 22, 2013
 
Zsolt is an absolute gem. He is very resourceful and knowledgeable about the market, and most importantly a pleasure to be with. He is extremely responsive to individual needs and has a wonderful way with people, as well as sound negotiation skills to get his clients what they want. I have referenced him to a number of very close friends all of whom speak very highly of him.

Searching for an apartment with Ryan was easy, convenient and surprisingly fun! NYC brokers are notorious for their cut-throat antics; from misleading listings (spacious??) to downright scammy (where was this fee before the application?) With Ryan, we experienced NONE of this. He was incredibly polite, honest and professional. All of our meetings were on time and on point. Our apartment hunt with Ryan was absolutely stellar and we absolutely recommend him.

Just relocated from London to NYC. I did not realize how difficult it is to finding a decent flat here, I met a number of brokers and was constantly disappointed with the service… until I met John! John sent me relevant apartments that fitted my criteria or most of them (and believe me I am fussy!) and made himself available on the day, so we could visit them and not miss great properties (which are taken off the market quickly). When visiting properties, unlike many agents John was not pushing for me to take an apartment for the sake of it, he was genuinely interested in me finding the right one. He also continued searching outside working hours and answered to emails at night, this is excellent service! I highly recommend his services. A colleague of mine also used the services of Anchor Associates to find an apartment, he made exactly the same comments so I guess the culture is just right in this company. Thanks again for making a difficult search so much easier! I DID rent an apartment from this agent.

- Pierre Francois (Naked apts),   November 22, 2013
 
5 stars recommendation! I would certainly not rate anything less for the quality of assistance I received from Holly Harnsongkram, from Anchor Associates in finding my flat. Especially as a foreigner, I was pretty anxious about rules, regulations and real estate market in New York, unknown to me. She had the most exquisite way to make things natural and simple. Knowledgeable not only in the building itself, she was great in advising in the neighborhood also. She was very good at facilitating the paperwork process and I could swiftly move in. I would certainly recommend her and definitely call her again should I move in the future.

- Alain D.,   November 21, 2013
 
I worked with AK, he could not have been more informative as to the current market and what is available. He is so knowledgable about each neighborhood and really took the time to figure out my needs. He also proved to be very trustworthy - unlike my previous experience in the city with another company. He negotiated my rent for me and my length of lease to exactly what I could afford and on top of that I have my dream apartment. Would recommend to all my friends and family in NYC.

I could have written any of the existing rave reviews and just replaced the broker''s name with Nick Campbell. He revived my faith in NYC brokers. Well, I never had any to begin with. He made Manhattan apartment-hunting a pleasant experience. I am very impressed that Anchor Associates has such a consistent stable of brokers who all seem to show the same outstanding caliber. If ever I need to look again for a place in Manhattan, I would call up Nick without a moment''s hesitation.

We are closing the deal soon with Amy. We were lucky to find the right agent. A friend of mine recommended Amy to us and it worked out so well. Amy was showing us around Upper East and Upper West side. We worked together pleasantly and smoothly with Amy''s professional knowledge, help and suggestions. We could not had a better experience. Amy was the media between us and all other parties. She even helped us out with home insurance purchasing. It was such a relief working with Amy, who knows every aspect of purchasing an apartment. I would strongly recommend Amy to anyone who are looking for an apartment in Manhattan. --Zillow, Nov. 14th, 2013

I worked with Ryan Long, initially I was supposed to work with a different broker but they switched me over to Ryan and was relieved from the first day. He's a great broker, not scummy and he's about business. He wants to make you as happy as possible and works magic to find what you're looking for. I would recommend him 100%!!! Very professional, honest, trustworthy and a great broker not like the others in NYC!

My name is Carl White, and I am the former sports anchor-reporter for the Fox 5 10''OClock News. Mimy is currently in the process of helping me find an apartment here in Manhattan, and I MUST SAY that so far she has been exceptional in her diligent work ethic, in her efforts to satisfy my apartment needs. Mimy has a terrific personality, quite knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to knowing the real estate market in NYC. Mimy has already persuaded me to refer Anchor to the many influential friends and colleagues I am acquainted with here in NYC, in the television, film, radio, sports, and broadcast industry. Keep up the good work!

- Carl White,   November 18, 2013
 
I wanted to write to tell you about the wonderful experience that my fiancé and I had working with Mimy in our recent apartment search. Mimy was so professional and easy to work with. She showed us an enormous variety of apartments that met our needs. We were astonished at how many places she had to show us and at her in-depth knowledge about each of the buildings. She clearly has an excellent grasp on the "crazy" Manhattan rental market! She was very responsive to our needs (apt. size, location, lease start date, price, etc.) and after just 1 day working with Mimy we found the perfect apartment. Mimy was also excellent at helping us through the application and approval process and got us to sign the leases within just 2 days! We have lived in Manhattan for a while now and have seen many, many apartments but we truly believe the one we are moving into on E. 56th is easily one of the best we have ever seen! We look forward to being the envy of all of our friends. We wanted to share our wonderful experience working with Mimy with you. It was a pleasure and we will certainly recommend her to anyone who needs a responsive, attentive, trustworthy and friendly broker!

- Christina H.,   November 18, 2013
 
After viewing about 25 places and meeting with over 15 brokers (without any success), I had given up on my search for the perfect one bedroom. I had called Mimy about a listing prior to ''giving up'' and when she called back (later that day) I explained to her my special situation and how I felt it was hopeless for me to view anymore listings. Mimy convinced me that, a new apartment would be found for me... Three days later, I had signed a lease and moved in and this was after a full month of searching! I really must say the Anchor seems to be the only company left that cares about its clients. I love them!! I will never forget how they helped me and cared about my happiness.

From the start, Florin was very responsive. He asked me what I was looking for in an apartment and he only showed me listings that fit my criteria. He did not push me to decide on a place. He even suggested I continue on my search with other brokers to make sure that the places he showed me were a good fit for me. He was very helpful from beginning to end. I would definitely recommend him to a friend. Thanks again for all your help during such a stressful process!

My wife and I recently worked with Milan in trying to find an apartment. While in the end we rented another apt in her building without going through a broker, we really enjoyed working with Milan and wanted to let you know. He worked to find an apartment that suited our unique tastes and was extremely accommodating of our busy schedules. He was extremely professional and courteous, which can be a rarity amongst NY residential RE broker. We hope to remain in touch and work with him in the future. Sincerely, Justin and Eliane Karr

I worked with Gloria Burtch and she was fabulous. She listened to us and showed us what we were looking for and was so informative! Since my roommate was coming from California and me from Atlanta, we definitely didn''t know a lot about the market in NYC and Gloria was extremely helpful in educating us. I highly recommend working with her - she''s reliable, not pushy, great with follow up and so sweet!

Amy provided excellent service in handling my first home purchasing upperwest side Manhattan. She responsed to any questions I had quickly, always had a solution to the issues that came up. Uses technology to assist our viewing process and complete the transaction, made it very easy and convenient to get the paperwork done. From start to finish, she was extremely professional and efficient. Before closing my deal, I already recommended her to my friends who are international buyers as well. --Zillow, 10/24/2013

I would highly recommend Amy as a realtor. She helped us purchasing our first home in Manhattan. Her efficiency and knowledge attracted us at the beginning and her patient and detail-oriented working attitude assured us during the whole process. We got the whole package (one stop) help from her: Attorneys, Mortgage Consultants and even the Contractor we just hired. I found Amy a great help and resourceful in every aspects when buying and managing a property. A.

John Grant! John Grant, broker extraordinaire, is the answer to your apartment searching needs, desires and expectations. As a practicing real estate attorney myself, I went into my last apartment search with an extremely jaded perspective. I had been through the customary bait-and-switch tactics practiced by nearly every broker and could not have been more frustrated. However, John Grant was honest, straight forward and anything but unnecessarily forceful. When John Grant saw something that met our expectations, he pointed it out to us. When he found something that was inferior, he told us ahead of time so as to not waste our time. John Grant seems to have subterranean NYC real estate connections beyond the average man. He will use these persuasive connections to find you your ideal residence. Bottom line- if you are looking for an honest, straight-forward and efficient broker in a real estate industry filled with deceit, double-dealing, trickiness, fraudulence and crookedness, John Grant is the answer. I could not possibly recommend him more.

Konstantin Zaliznyak has acted as our broker to assist in finding a suitable property to purchase in Manhattan and then in negotiating and finalizing the sale. We highly recommend him as an extremely professional, enthusiastic and diligent person. He assisted us with relevant information throughout the lengthy negotiation process and went to no end of trouble to solve particular problems that we had as foreign investors. We found his knowledge of property matters to be very comprehensive and he was also able to assist us in making contact with legal and financial experts. We highly recommend him to anyone seeking assistance with real estate in New York. Regards, Peter Brook Source: http://www.trulia.com/profile/Konstantin/

Konstantin Zaliznyak was a great broker to work with! Konstantin never wasted our time; he quickly understood the specific features we were looking for and only took us to places matching our criteria. We even changed our preferences many times throughout our search and he was always quick to adapt and show us more places that matched our criteria. It took more than 3 months to find the right place, and working with Konstantin throughout that time was a pleasure. He was very professional, patient, and responsive. I highly recommend Konstantin to anyone looking for apartments in NYC! Soource: Yelp

We were very fortunate to make contact with Konstantin over a year ago. We are foreign buyers and sought information about the New York market prior to buying. Konstantin spent an extraordinary amount of time patiently explaining everything to us so when we did make a trip to New York, he was there to show us exactly what we were looking for with a large number of choices. We eventually purchased a condo with a lot of assistance from Konstantin. He is patient, polite, knowledgeable, very professional and, if I may say so, a nice person. If you are looking to buy or sell or rent, there is no need to seek out anyone other than Konstantin. Source: Yelp

I have known Steve Levine for more than 10 years and consider him to be one of the most reliable people I have come across. He is extremely involved on a voluntary basis in the Synagogue that I am Vice President of and he is always getting things done that need special attention in the most efficient manner. Steve is also a person of the highest integrity and has a reputation among his friends and neighbors as a person that can be trusted with regard to confidential and sensitive matters. I would highly recommend Steven as your Real Estate Agent, he will always do the best for you.

I am writing this review for Jimmy Fernandes and Nick Campbell of Anchor Associates. Looking for an apartment in Manhattan is typically a stressful and unpleasant time. However, Jimmy and Nick went out of their way to make the experience as relaxing and easy as possible--they even made it kind of fun! They spent HOURS with me looking at various apartments all over the city. They took into consideration all of the things we were looking for in an apartment, asked for my feedback after each apartment, and adapted their list of apartments to show me based on that feedback. They were very knowledgeable about the apartments, the management, the neighborhoods, and anything else I had questions about. They really did an amazing job from the second I met them, to the day we signed a lease, to the follow-up phone calls making sure we were happy with our new apartment. I would definitely recommend that anyone looking for an apartment in NYC call Anchor Associates and ask for the dream team Nick and Jimmy :)

My girlfriend and I were looking for our first apartment in New York and were lucky enough to cross paths with Lamonte Ball. Lamonte was astoundingly courteous, responsive, and knowledgeable. We only ended up visiting one apartment together, but he took me to the spot and answered all my questions, went out of his way to introduce me to the landlord, then took two full hours-- no exaggeration-- out of his day to walk me around the neighborhood and point out nearby necessities, introduce me to local business and their owners, and identify other cool spots worth knowing about. That kind of diligence-- plus timely updates on the listing question and ample advice about the process in general-- was much appreciated as someone going through the ordeal of finding an apartment for the first time. Lamonte was exceptionally friendly while still being appropriately professional. That's hard to find.

- Seth R.,   November 07, 2013
 
Looking for an apartment on my own for the first time, I was SO lucky to be working with Lamonte Ball. I couldn't have asked for anyone more responsive, diligent, and friendly. He took the time to walk me around the neighborhood, introduce me to local shop owners, and just generally made me feel very comfortable with the whole process. I'm so thrilled to be moving into my new place, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a broker who will make the sometimes daunting search for a new apartment in nyc not only bearable, but fun!

From YELP: Having worked elsewhere with two of the shadiest brokers I could possibly imagine, I was recommended to Gilad Paz. Thank God. I felt like I was finally working with someone that showed an interest in what I was looking for. Gilad was super patient, and didn''t rush me into making any decisions. I really appreciated his flexibility, and that he actually searched within my price range (most brokers seem to push you up....as if your budgets were sent arbitrarily!) But thanks to Gilad, I found the perfect pad for the perfect price.

Lydia was really helpful and patient with my roommate and I. She listened to what we wanted and was able to find the perfect apartment exactly within our price range. Finding an apartment in Manhattan can be such a discouraging experience but Lydia worked day and night to find us the right place. After signing the lease she remained in contact with us and helpful right through lease signing. She even contacted us on move in day to make sure everything was all set. She really went above and beyond for us and will for you, too. Source: Yelp http://www.yelp.com/biz/anchor-associates-new-york-6?q=Lydia

We just got an amazing apartment in battery park and we have to thank our brokers John and Jin for it. We were not sure where to start because we are not very familiar with New York City market. From our initial phone call, John asked many questions to understand what we wanted. He was patient with many questions we had and he sent us an email right away with list of our wants, which made us see that he paid attention to what we said. We saw over 10 apartments all over the city with John and Jin and when we walked into this apartment, we knew it was the right one for us. Thank you for helping us! You guys are the best! - review on Yelp.com

Once in a while you have the fortune to work with someone who restores your faith in humanity like Peter. After a first round of showings, none of the apartments I saw met my criteria, and Peter took in all of this information as we went along and genuinely understood what I was looking for. Whereas many in the past have tried to smooth talk me into something that I didn''t want, he considered my needs and kept an eye out for possible matches. It was very nice for a change to have an agent contacting me with listings to see the next week, and right off the bat the first place I saw was a home run. The place was an exclusive listing with a different broker, so he''d have to split the fee, yet he put my needs first in the situation which really made me feel like he was actually acting as my "agent" in the true meaning of the word. He''s also a pleasant guy, not pushy, friendly and down-to-earth. Take it from me, Peter''s a stand-up guy you''ll be happy to work with.

My fiance and I moved to NYC from DC for new jobs (we''re professionals in our mid-late twenties) and had one weekend to find a place. We found Francois Baron at Anchor through some other Yelp review and took our chances--and we''re glad we did. Communication leading up to our weekend of searching was very easy and clear. We gave Francois a price range and explained the amenities we were hoping for. He was pretty good about showing us places at the lower end of our range (as requested), and in the neighborhoods we wanted. It was also a stressful time for us with many big life decisions involved, and Francois was patient while we took some time to discuss things privately here and there. He was also just pleasant to be around. We would recommend Francois!

Mario was very helpful for me and my friend as we were looking for a place with quite a few restrictions. Despite the fast-moving nature of the real estate market here in the city, he had a very measured and organized approach to find apartments that exactly fit what we were looking far. His responsiveness was greatly appreciated, but even more important was the professional manner with which he communicated with us - I find very many agents lack a professional edge in how they handle renters, and I was very pleased by my experience working with Mario. I would work with him again in a heartbeat and definitely recommend him.

Jin and John went beyond what we expected from buyers brokers. They blew us away with their professionalism, efficiency and competence. They were a truly nice people with sensibility and genuineness that we did not expect from brokers. They both have extensive knowledge of the market, (and John knew every single building in the city!) and very informative about current real estate trends, which ensured us that we were in good hands. They helped a lot in calming our nerves about our first purchase in the city. John and Jin made purchasing a property in NYC a great experience for us. -Full review on Zillow.com

We were so lucky to find John and Jin to purchase a home in the city. We did not jive with the 2 previous buyers brokers we worked with and was losing hope. But Jin and John really made the process a lot easier for us by doing their jobs very well. They made us feel comfortable and relaxed through out the whole process. They linked up us with Agentfolio and we were able to go through the newest listings, organize what we saw, and discuss what we liked or not liked about each. They communicated honestly and clearly with us for the entire duration of the sale process and we were well informed about everything that went on. Jin and John are great brokers but at the end of the day, very nice people to work with. They are funny and charming and we feel that we were very well represented by them. They are on-point and top of their business and we highly recommend Jin and John to anyone looking to purchase! - full review on Yelp.com

Although Steve Levine is relatively new to real estate sales, he has great passion for the business and is working hard to be the most knowledgeable and responsive real estate agent in NYC.

This review is for Scott Schiller at the 950 Third Ave office. I was thoroughly pleased with the service that Scott and his team provided during my search. He was extremely professional, very prompt with correspondence, courteous, personable and patient, given this was my first rental experience in Manhattan. Scott also has 19+ years experience in the NYC rental market, so I had a very seasoned professional helping me with my search. Scott helped me find an apartment that had everything I wanted in Midtown East. After trying the no-fee route on Craiglist, StreeEasy, Naked Apartments, etc., I came to realize that using a broker service was the most painless and efficient way to find the right place that suited my needs and budget. After telling Scott what I was looking for, he immediately compiled a list of 8 vacant apartments to take a look at the next day. He made an extremely agonizing experience actually fun and easy. It was also pretty cool seeing how almost every doorman or apartment manager at the buildings we visited greeted him on a first-name basis and was very cordial with him, which was a good sign and proved that Scott was legit. Overall, I am very happy with Scott and Anchor and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to find a place to live in NYC.

He was extremely flexible with when he was able to meet and was very enthusiastic to show us the first apartment he found for us. We ended up loving the apartment and decided to apply for it. Peter was extremely helpful and answered all of our questions and was able to get our application in very fast, resulting in us getting the apartment!

Belinda is amazing! We were moving to NYC for the first time from out of state with a week to find an apartment. Belinda was quick to respond initially and easy to reach during the entire process.

Amy was a great help to me with finding an apartment to rent within my budget and meeting my criteria. She is very knowledgeable on the neighborhoods and costs associated with each apartment/building complex we viewed. She was able to schedule multiple viewings in one day so that it would limit my travels into the city. I recommend her to anyone, whether you are searching for a long-term or short-term rental. She was very accommodating with her schedule and a pleasure to be in company with throughout the viewings and lease signing process. --Trulia, Sep, 22nd, 2013.

Working with Victoria Caputo made my apartment search go incredibly smoothly, she did an amazing job. After finding out my preferences, she showed me a wide range of apartments on the first day within my price range, 10+, and from there figured out exactly what I was after. While my first choice was unavailable, she helped me put together a back-up application very quickly in case the other application fell through. She called me the minute she heard about a suitable apartment the day after our first meeting, and arranged to show it to me immediately. This was an excellent fit, so Victoria worked closely in putting in the application and following up until I signed the lease. I would recommend Victoria to anyone looking for an apartment, she was extremely helpful and patient with my demands.

Ben Willig was the broker that worked with us in finding our first apartment in New York and we could not have asked for a better, more devoted broker.  There were several circumstances which made our apartment search challenging, most challenging being the limited amount of time that we had to look at apartments (less than 24 hours). The first day of our experience was a Tuesday afternoon in which the weather also made our search more challenging.  It was down-pouring rain for the first few hours and Ben, along with his assistant Vu Tran, were still eager to continue the apartment search, even though there was only one umbrella for four people.  They insisted that we use the umbrella, while they were unprotected from the elements. That day we were shown multiple apartments that matched our search criteria.  We were not shown apartments that we could not afford or in areas that we were not interested in living; we were only shown apartments that were appropriate to our needs and means.  This was a welcome surprise having previously dealt with brokers that were more interested in their commission rather than what would be the best for us. We would HIGHLY recommend Ben Willig and Anchor Associates Group to anyone who is looking for any assistance with the search for an apartment in New York City.  His knowledge and expertise of the New York area and its fast-paced changing real estate market was a welcomed surprise and immense help which made the experience of searching for an apartment pleasurable and successful.

How much do I love Ben Willig? Let me count the ways.Ben is truly broker extraordinaire... calm, knowledgeable, smart, funny, the hardest of workers. I cannot tell you how lucky we feel to have worked with him during our apartment process. Our situation was tricky b/c not only we were trying to find a new apartment in Tribeca or Gramercy (two neighborhoods we knew very little about - but luckily Ben did!) but also, my boyfriend had to break his lease four months early. Ben navigated the entire process with ease - he found us the VERY perfect apartment - under our budget with everything we wanted and more. He also managed to negotiate with Jon''s building for a lease break and find a new tenant. Amazing!!! We move in three weeks, everything is settled and we are thrilled. Plus, we got a discount on movers because we worked with Ben! I''m telling you what I told my friends - if you go with any other broker other than Ben Willig, you''re nuts.

I was fortunate enough to end up working with Anchor Associates earlier this summer when my friend and I moved up to New York from Atlanta. We initially expected the apartment search process to be difficult. Fortunately for us, we were paired up with Ben Willig who did a perfect job. We outlined our decision factors and Ben stuck to them. Ben spent the entire day with us and presented to us over 13 apartments that matched our price and location preferences. Ben acted very professionally and friendly. He assisted us with the entire process (including signing) and was very informative about the process. Our experience with him and his team was stellar and we have recommended him to three of our friends who have moved to the city who have all had similar good experiences. If you are in the market, make sure Anchor and Ben are helping you navigate it.

Me and my roommates were in a search for a three bdrm apt for sometime with a broker who helped us find our previous home. Unfortunately after seeing many different places, the search didn''t come to a fruitful conclusion. That''s where we looked up the naked apartments and found Milan''s add. After discussing our options and needs, he was able to show my roommates and me a few good apt which eventually led to us finding an amazing spot in Murray Hill. The place turned out to be more convenient for us than the location we were originally interested in. This was all possible due to his knowledge of the market and his way around the neighborhoods. He heard what we had to say and he delivered. Thank you Milan for everything!

Alex T is the best! He was so easy to work with, incredibly respectful of what we were looking for as far as space, location, price range etc.. He was always on time, he even stood in a parking spot for us for a half hour when we were running late once! That is no easy feat in the city! He's tenacious but not at all pushy, and he only showed us clean, well kept apts that we could afford. He always had multiple listings at his fingertips so if we weren't crazy about one place he'd have 5 others ready to go. Once we found the apt we wanted he was so on top of things! He was our liaison with the mgt company and even met me at my office to run our paperwork over. You can reach him any time, he's super reliable and makes you feel like his sole focus when he's with you. I cannot say enough good things about him! Highly recommend!

Hi Robert, Just wanted to say thanks again for helping us with our apartment search. We were really impressed by your flexibility and accessibility during the whole process. It was a stressful process given that my schedule was so hectic at that time, but you were great about showing me targeted apartments that you thought would be good for us. We love our apartment and really appreciate you taking the time to make sure every issue we had with the apartment was fixed. Thanks for everything. We really appreciate it! Kind regards, Candace

This review is for Jessica Drevins, someone who was amazing to work with especially for younger individuals who are looking for a place in the city. I met with multiple realtors when I first was looking at apartments within the city and when I came back for my second visit I chose to work exclusively with Jessica. She was kind, personable, listened to what I wanted and made good use of my time. In particular, she wasn''t pushy, didn''t ask if I wanted to sign paperwork immediately and gave me time to think and process my decisions. Jessica was the perfect balance between professional and fun. She wanted what was best for me and always told me any fees or things that may or may not be missing in the apartment. I would recommend Jessica to anyone looking for a reliable, thorough and trustworthy Realtor. She was wonderful!

This review is for Belinda Cruz: Recently, I was in a where my apartment building was sold, and the new owner decided they wanted to live in my apartment, so my family (which included my then 3 month old daughter) and I were given 60 days to find another apartment. During the 1st 30 days of my search, I worked with at least 8 brokers from various companies to locate a new home. Frankly, none of them were sensitive to my situation, one even telling me that their time was too valuable to continue to look at multiple listings. One day, I saw an apartment on-line that looked promising, so I contacted the broker. Honestly, I expected more of the same treatment, but by chance, and luckily for me, it was Belinda Cruz! She worked tirelessly with me, taking into consideration not only my availability (which was usually after 6 PM), but more importantly, the small amount of time in which I had to find a new apartment. We viewed quite a number of apartments in various parts of the city on a daily basis. Once I got home from those exhausting viewings, there was always an email (with pics!) from Belinda that summarized the apartments we had viewed that day. Eventually, I selected a dream apartment downtown! If you're looking for an apartment broker in NYC, Belinda Cruz is as good and as genuine as it gets! I will never use another broker as long as I live in the City!!

I didn''t think it was possible to meet an attentive, responsive and quite frankly...kind....broker in NYC. Then I met Jin Kim. I needed to reassign my lease and Jin truly came to the rescue. Aside from getting the job done, Jin answered everyone of my texts and emails within minutes to assure me she was on the job and doing everything possible. She went above and beyond, offering incentives for her fellow brokers, running papers around town and even moving furniture! She was an absolute professional but also a pleasure to deal with on a daily basis. If you''re looking for amazing service Jin is the person to call!

I was moving to NY from India for a six month stay and needed a furnished apartment in a hurry. Searched on the web and found a couple of dozen listings that I liked. I emailed the concerned agent on each, and got a few responses. Was very lucky one of them was from Scott Lightfoot of Anchor Associates. From the beginning he did his best to help me narrow down my choices and find apartments that would suit my particular situation. While the other brokers would contact me as and when it suited them, and with a take-it-or-leave-it attitude, Scott was extremely prompt in this responses. I shortlisted about a dozen apartments, ranked them, and asked a friend who lived in NY to check them out for me. Scott took my friend around to see these and to a few others that he thought would suit my preferences. I was very happy that I was able to get the apartment that was no. 1 on my list. Within a couple of weeks we had negotiated the lease, and got all the minutiae ironed out. When I flew in from India, he was waiting at the apartment with the keys, and things went without a hitch. I plan on enlisting his help when I''m ready to move again, and would definitely recommend Scott to my friends.

My roommate and I were looking for a place to move in NYC and were having a hard time finding n apartment that suited our needs. Then we were recommended to Scott Lightfoot at the Anchor Associates Group by a friend. He was very professional, but made the whole experience of finding an apartment fun and easy. We saw several different apartments in the first day alone, all of which were great! I would highly recommend this group. Ask for Scott if you are looking in NYC!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Eyal. He is very professional and extremely responsive. He was able to negotiate on our behalf and get us moved into a new condo apartment less than one a week. Truly amazing!!!

I found Belinda Cruz, and it was the best thing that happened to me in my search for an apartment. She accommodated changes in budget and showed me a proper variety to learn what I wanted. The offices of Anchor Associates were great and I really felt that the team had my best interest. Choose Anchor associates and find a great place ! Belinda is a gem and such a pleasure to work with !

John and Jin helped us navigate the confusing world of Manhattan higher level real estate with patience and compassion. They were able to schedule multiple viewings around our very busy schedules and helped advise us in neighborhoods and building types. We are better off and much more knowledgable from having worked with them. Thanks John and Jin, you're the best! - Source Zillow

Amy helped me buying my first investment peoperty in NY city. Although it was a short notice. She made all appointments with Banks, Loan officers, Accountants and apartments for us in a timely manner. Amy was such an efficient and organized person. We found several good choices in 3 days and signed the final contract in one weeks. I will definitely get Amy''s help soon for the next investment purchasing. She is the one that we would like to continuelly work with.

I am writing to express my pleasure working with Amy Wang, who represented me in my recent purchase of a uppereast side apartment. Amy guided me through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for apartments to making the offer and closing the deal. I credit Amy with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience. This is my first purchase of property, and I had such a pleasurable experience. Amy is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. I never could have gotten my dream home without her.

We worked with Vladimir Kulagin as our Buyer's Agent to find an apartment to purchase in NYC. He was a great man for the job - very responsive and professional. He dealt effectively with difficult counterparties, was always on task, always with a smile. We had a few deals fall apart but he never gave up and quickly found the next opportunity. As a result, we found exactly what we wanted, down to the last detail. Excellent work, Vladimir, thank you!

Thank you for the gift basket of treats. I've been meaning to write and tell you what a pleasure it was to work with Jimmy Fernandes. His job was made difficult by the fact that I was searching for an apartment for my daughter who was not able to devote much time to the process. I believe we met on 3 occasions and I was shown many listings. The weather was hot and I was feeling desperate and cranky and despite all that, Jimmy kept it positive. I never felt pressured and I know he would have graciously shown me more apartments without complaint had we not made a decision. I will certainly call on Anchor again if we have to undertake another search.

- Linda B. 9/29/2013 Yelp.com,   September 30, 2013
 
Amy was very helpful in finding a new home. She took the time to help me look at places very early on to help me understand what I can expect even though the places we were viewing were on the market too early for me to rent. I really appreciated that. When it came time for negotiations I felt I was treat fairly and was given the best rate possible. I would highly recommend Amy to anyone looking for a new apartment.

0 1 Suzanne C. Manhattan, NY 9/27/2013 When I wanted to return to my New York roots and come HOME, I prepared myself that it wasn't going to be easy to find an apartment that I could afford. Well, I was pleasantly surprised by Howard Hauptman of Anchor Associates. I planned my "seeking" trip to New York and Howard made what I thought an impossible task actually fun and possible. Howard knew what I was looking for and he found it! I am moving in November 1. If you are looking for a professional and competent person who can get you what you are looking for, go and see Howard Hauptman at Anchor Associates Group.

I worked with Ben for about 4 months while looking for an apartment in the Chelsea area and couldn't have had a better experience. While it sounds extremely clich?? to say that someone "goes the extra mile", it is a 100% accurate portrayal of Ben's work ethic. Two quick examples that come to mind include 1) during the final walk through prior to closing on the apartment I ultimately ended up finding, Ben (in a full suit) got on his hands and knees to fully inspect that the chimney flue was working correctly, completely accepting the fact that he would get dirty in the process. 2) I had a contractor take a look at one of the apartments I was looking at in order to see what it would cost to make a few renovations. I was stuck at work and unable to meet him at the apartment, but Ben said he would show the contractor around and let him know what I was looking to do. Sure enough, Ben met the contractor at the apartment and was able to walk him through everything that I wanted to. Simply put, your average NY city broker would not put in nearly as much time and effort as Ben does to make sure that you have a positive experience in searching for a new place to buy or rent. I recommend him to all of my friends, and consistently hear similar feedback from them.

My roommates and I needed to move into an apartment in the city in a short amount of time. We decided to use Anchor to be able to see what was out there. We used Mitchell Cohen as our broker and he was great. He was on time for our appointments and took us to multiple locations in our budget range. He was knowledgable about the areas of Manhattan as well as the apartments we saw. We needed to do paperwork that day and he was extremely accommodating in getting us back to the office to sign all of our documents. The process was organized and simple. We were able to sign a lease within a week. Using Anchor made the process easy and took a ton of stress off the apartment finding process. Anchor was great to use!

I would like to leave a review for Helene Campbell because it has been a pleasure to met her. I was looking for an apartment in NYC to study here and I contacted her from Italy, and when I came to ny she showed me a large number of apartments and they were all beautiful; furthermore I asked to change the search parameters after one day and it was impressive how she managed to find different apartments to view the day after. She is really professional and nice and it was very pleasant to walk across the city in her company.

This review is for Logan Dougher, who was nothing but fantastic both times he''s helped me find an apartment. I''ve rented 2 apartments through Logan and have had really positive experiences. Logan is a honest straight shooter and says everything like it is, which can be very rare in NYC as I''ve met many brokers during my 7 years here. Both times I worked with Logan, he took the time to really understand what I was looking for in an apartment and stuck to my budget when looking for places. He was very sensitive to not wasting my time and whenever possible he''d preview a place in person before showing me. He is also very organized and moves very quickly so that we were able to successfully in an application when I wanted to move on something. In fact, I trusted Logan so much (that he was representing the apartments as they were and had my best interest in mind) that I actually submitted an application and signed my current apartment without ever having seen it in person and just based on his photos and description. And even after my apartment was signed and he was paid, he still helped to make sure my landlord followed through with various cleaning and other services that was promised to me and helped me secure renter''s insurance. Can''t say enough good things about my experiences working with Logan, and no doubt that I will work with him again the next time around!

Derek was truly nice to work with. He listened to my requests, concerns and very well adjusted the apartment view list and actively asked landlords questions on my behalf. Some of them I didn't even think about. On the first day he showed me 10+ apartments...It was a lot! But Derek made the experience pleasant.

My boyfriend and I worked with both Jin Kim and John Santulli to find our new apartment. We had worked with a few other brokers from different companies, but were not impressed. Not only were they professional and responsive, but they found really great places for us within our budget and they were available throughout the entire application process. I will definitely be recommending them to others - Full review on Yelp.com

I was having a hard time in finding a place in NYC and Anchor made it much easy! I was assisted in my search by a very professional agent: Jameela Rodriguez. She was very understanding, helpful and such a nice person. She showed me great places and it was a pleasure to have her showing me around. I was in a hurry to find the apartment and she managed to find me one in two days. By the way, labour day was included in the two! Very professional group, I would recommend it!

"Robert is very motivated in helping his Clients find the best match for their preferences, budget and timing. Unlike many agents in the city, he listens to his Clients rather than pushing what might be easy or convenient for him to show. I would strongly recommend Robert to anyone looking for a new home in Manhattan." - Julie McLaughlin

I recently moved from Canada and only had a few days to find a place. I decided to go with Andrew Vo as my broker and it was the best decision I could have made! He was unbelievably helpful and very patient throughout everything. Even before starting, Andrew made sure he understood exactly what I was looking for in terms of prices and neighborhoods. Andrew took me to tons of different locations, with the intention of making sure I had a broad selection to choose from. He was up front with all prices and fees and answered all my questions as honestly as he could. I''ve heard stories of brokers taking advantage of their clients, but this was definitely not the case. Overall, Andrew kept on top of all the scheduling and made the process very smooth. He was also a very genuine and sociable person, which made the grueling process of finding a place much easier. If I had to move again in NY, I would definitely go back to Andrew as my broker!

I worked with Michael Engstrom at Anchor Associates for approx a month and really listened to what me and my wife were looking for and he showed us many apt in our price range. He managed to negoiate good terms and a free months rent on this particular apt we decided to go with.. Michael is true champ in real estate, the next Million Dollar Listing star hopefully.

FROM YELP: Gilad Paz was by far the best broker I worked with in the city. Gilad is incredibly knowledgeable, receptive, and personable. He made it feel like he was truly working for us and trying to get us the best apartment at the best price. My roommates and I contacted Gilad through the Anchor website and he called us within minutes to discuss what we were looking for. On less than a day''s notice he was showing us great places in the right neighborhoods. He even ended up staying with us until after 10pm on a Saturday night so we could get our application in - overall an amazing level of service. Throughout the entire experience he was incredibly helpful and informative without ever being pushy or overbearing. During the course of my apartment search I probably met with around six or seven different brokers, and Gilad was not only the most effective, but also the most pleasant to work with. Wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone looking for an apartment in NYC.

Moving from Rochester to NYC. I had no idea how involved the process would be. Luckily I picked broker Kari Shannon at random off a web site. She handled everything professionally and quickly. She is awesome.

My wife and I were set - we're moving to New York, all the way from San Francisco. We both challenged ourselves to find an apartment via craigslist - bad idea. Anyway, long story short, saw that Anchor had great reviews. Sure enough, they live up to the hype. A great group of friendly, reasonable, and patient people. Savita Pandya was our broker and she did an absolutely amazing job. I was left with only a few days in NYC during my work trip but she made it work. Over the course of two days, we saw a multitude of apartments, all different enough to help narrow down exactly what we needed. Once we landed on one, she was patient while we pulled all of the paperwork together and helped guide us to ensure we had the best opportunity to land the apartment. All in all, Anchor was a great company to work with and Savita in particular is worthy of my recommendation. I will definitely be going back here for my next apartment hunt.

My fiance and I were having a difficult time finding the right apartment in Manhattan and had looked at numerous apartments prior to working with Derek. Not only is Derek highly knowledgeable and acquainted with the neighborhoods we were focused on but he also had great apartments to show us. He is also very responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommended!

POSTED ON YELP: If you want to work with a broker that listens to what you want and delivers the perfect apartment, work with Gilad Paz. We recently relocated to NYC and after giving Gilad a "wish list" for what we were looking for, he nailed it with the first apartment he showed us. Not only that, it was fun hanging out with Gilad as he showed us other potential apartments. A really nice guy and a true professional.

POSTED ON YELP: Coming from Ottawa, ON the boyfriend and I had read a few articles about NYC real estate and apartments, but really had no idea what to expect. We had planned a few days in the city to look at listings we found ourselves and booked an afternoon to see apartments with Gilad Paz. It was clear when we first met Gilad that he was very interested in our apartment needs and showed us a wide range of apartments that fit our requirements. At the end of a few hours we had seen a lot of places, but found two that we loved. We got the application process rolling and although there were a few hiccups on the landlords end Gilad was there to help smooth things over. He did a lot of work on our behalf to make sure we got our perfect NYC apartment. We have been very happy with Gilad and recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment. He''ll do whatever it takes to find you your perfect home.

This is a review of my experience with Howard S. Hauptman of Anchor Associates. Howard is a kind, gentle, and most importantly, honest man. I first met Howard in the beginning of August when I began my 1 bedroom apartment search. The apartment he showed was outstanding. However, not wanting to rent something the first day I began my search, I spent the next 3 weeks looking at over 20 apartments with 5 other agents from different companies. The apartments the other agents showed were awful, charging a 15% fee, and oftentimes faulty advertised. I began to realize how much better Howard was than all of these other brokers. It seemed like he genuinely cared about helping me find a comfortable place to live. If you are seriously considering moving into Manhattan, I suggest using Howard Hauptman as your agent. He has built relationships over the years with owners of various buildings so he can negotiate the best terms possible. I highly highly recommend Howard. If you have any questions, feel free to message me.

I would like to write this review for Nick Campbell, with whom it was a pleasure to work with. He was able to find was I was looking for in an apartment and he worked very hard to get it in a small period of time. If I wouldn''t like any of the apartments he showed me one day, he will be ready with more listings the next day. I appreciated that he was 100% dedicated, and very attentive to everything that was going on, really paying attention to all the things I told him and really looking for something that had everything I needed. I also want to thank Anchor associates for the being honest about everything and for helping me get my new apartment. thank you very much!

Andrew Vo is dependable, considerate, and hardworking, and I highly recommend working with him! My roommate and I were looking for a two bedroom in Chelsea/West Village area and one of our friends had actually recommended Andrew. Right off the bat, he show a tremendous and genuine interest in helping us find the best value. Even more so, my roommate and I were very particular/picky with regards to what we wanted, but Andrew did not waste our time showing anything that didn't fit our requirements. He repeatedly made us feel like his priority and consistently kept us updated on potential listings. He fit us in right away, showed us 5 apartments in one day, and the 4th place we visited is now our current home. And to throw a cherry on top, the place he found for us was no fee! It was the first time I worked with a broker where I felt like I wasn't going to get ripped off. And for me, someone that has moved over 5 times in New York, that is pretty cool. In a city with so much sensory overload, it was so refreshing to meet a broker that not only had our best interests in mind, but also put forth his best qualities and character as an expert in his field. He was a pleasure to work with, and I will be referring him to all my friends!

He is an amazing broker. Finding an apartment in NYC can be tricky. He helped us in every way possible. He showed us several apartments, and knew exactly what we had in mind. He stays in constant communication to find just the right apartment. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking an apt.

Jonathan is an absolute sweetheart. He is truly interested in your background, what you are looking for and why. He gives you other options if nothing has worked out and is someone I would recommend to others. We asked him to move up our appointment and he ran to the location to make it in time. He is an outstanding broker and is very good with follow up. I am VERY happy with our dealings with him.

Josh Banilivy from Anchor was a phenomenal agent. I''ve dealt with a few other brokers this summer but none were able to help me as Josh did. It was necessary for me to find an August move-in and it was already late July, but Josh was all over it. He really understood the type of apartment I was looking for, and wouldn''t at all push me into something I didn''t like. With my slightest sign of dissatisfaction he knew it was ready to move onto the next listing. I actually ended up re-signing with a previous landlord so we did not end up closing through Josh, but I was very satisfied with this work. Thanks!

This review is for Peter Papazoglou. Peter was very patient and helpful through the entire apartment search process. I didn''t have much time to find a place, and Peter was constantly sending me new choices that matched my budget and preferences. I ended up doing a sublease because of the time limit, but when it is time for me to look again I will definitely go to Peter!

Andrew Vo was the absolute best broker I could have asked for. He helped my roommate and I find our first apartment after we'd graduated from college and somehow managed to find us the PERFECT apartment. He took everything we asked for and delivered like no one else could have. Andrew was always available to answer questions, explain New York City housing rules, show us any apartments we were interested in and act as a sounding board for any tough decisions. He went above and beyond what I would have ever expected from a broker, helping us with paperwork, continuously making himself available for questions even after we'd signed our place and delivering some of the most delicious cookies I've had as a move in gift for us. Andrew always brought a positive energy to everything even when it was over 100 degrees outside and made what should have been a very trying and irritating experience a fun adventure and I would whole heartedly recommend him to absolutely anyone. Whenever I change apartments I will 100% be using him again!

Paola worked with Leah Niyazov to make sure absolutely all my apartment finding needs were met. And she could not have been more courteous or fun to talk to along the way! She did a great job of organizing my thoughts for me as I weighed the pros and cons of the fabulous buildings she showed me. I highly recommend her to people looking for a home in New York.

I found Jameela''s profile on the Anchor Associates website while searching for available apartment listings in Manhattan. Over the course of a few showings I learned much about what to expect for my given price range within the different neighborhoods in which we viewed apartments. As a newcomer to the apartment-hunting scene in Manhattan, she did a great job of answering all of my questions and being patient with me throughout the process. I ultimately signed with another realty group, which was not in any way reflective of Jameela''s performance as an agent. Nonetheless, Jameela was a pleasure to work with and anyone who employs her services will have a great experience.

I had lived in New York City for a few years but had never been faced with the problem of finding an apartment from scratch. Luckily there was always a spare bedroom open with friends whenever I needed one so I really had no idea where to start. I had heard horror stories of slimy NYC brokers who charged outrageous fees while delivering a fourth of what the renter requested- I knew I was in over my head. Thankfully a friend referred me to Logan Dougher and I knew after our first phone conversation that he understood exactly what I was looking for. My boyfriend and I had some strict parameters during our search (read: budget) and Logan didn''t try to pressure us to up our limit. We spent a few afternoons with him looking at properties and ultimately found the perfect spot which Logan was able to negotiate down to a price we could afford. He was very professional and diligent and we will definitely do business with him again

- Mallory J. - 5/7/13 - www.Yelp.com,   August 22, 2013
 
Went through a number of brokers with my boyfriend before we found the right shop and the right guy. Logan Dougher is a guy who will actually listens to his clients. He doesn't try to up your price point, he doesn't force exclusive listings on you, and he will pound the pavement to find the right place (even if it is a needle in a haystack). He is extremely responsive throughout the process. Following my very positive experience with Anchor and Logan, I have recommended him to a number of other friends. They report similarly outstanding service. Would recommend without hesitation.

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Andrew Vo in the search of our first NYC apartment. It was a relatively pain free process and ended up finding the perfect neighborhood and place for us well within our budget. Andrew went with us to look at a TON of apartments and lucky to say that we are now in one that we really like. Andrew was always very professional and very timely. His flexibility with our location and price range was much appreciated. Of everything, I really appreciated is that we never felt rushed or pressured to do something we weren''t 100% comfortable with. Thanks so much for the help!

I worked with Andrew Vo to find my apartment and he was AMAZING! I was looking for an apartment and was coming in for just one weekend from out of town. From the initial phone call, Andrew was fantastic to work with. He was extremely communicative checking in with us regularly leading up to our session to give us updates on what we would be seeing. I looked with a few other brokers too before meeting Andrew and every single apartment he showed me was 10x better than what anyone else could show me. After just three apartments Andrew found us the winning one and helped us with everything 100% from figuring out the guarantors, rental agreement, gas/electric/Internet, moving logistics and more. Andrew went above and beyond his job and was really a joy to work with. And, he is a fantastic baker (he brings all of his clients cookies after they've moved in), you would be a fool to not let him help you find an apartment!

This is a review for Andrei Turcan. Finding an apartment in Manhattan is a nightmare and kind of brokers you come across a worse one. We thankfully met Andrei. He was very patient with us as we started our search for an apartment earlier than expected 15 days before move-in date. He showed us lot of apartments and best thing is he didn''t force us to settle for one. He understood what we wanted and changed what he showed us based on that. He also gave suggestions based on our budget, showed us Astoria. I was a pleasure working with him and I am hopeful I will use his services in future.

This guy is amazing. I was recommended to him by a friend who was very pleased by him so I decided to give him a try. I am a very difficult and specific person and Joshua definitely showed me the kind of apts I was looking for. He took me out for showings multiple times and worked around my schedule which was quite nice of him. He also kept in contact with me often to keep me up to date with our search. He is truly a genuine guy who will find exactly what you''re looking for no matter what. He found what many other brokers said were unheard of in Manhattan. For me that was a newer building with a washer and dryer that was not over the top expensive (along with other specifics) and Joshua definitely found exactly that. Unfortunately due to last minute job location I was unable to move into the apt Joshua worked so hard to find me, but I will definitely be giving him a call as soon as possible. I would definitely recommend everyone to work with Joshua, for he will find exactly what you''re looking for!

This review is for Andrew Vo. Andrew was a tremendous help during my short stay in NYC. Although I did not end up signing a lease through him, he was very frank and courteous. Andrew is very knowledgeable of the real estate market, and helped walk me through the process of getting an apartment in the city regardless of my decision of using him as my broker. An added bonus is that he introduced me to a sweet local bakery. If I ever need a real estate broker in New York again, my first choice would be Andrew.

My boyfriend and I were searching for a small furnished apartment in manhattan for a limited time (6 to 12 months): it proved to be almost impossible, until we contacted anchor associates group. More specifically, Victoria: she was the nicest broker I ever dealt with, always very fast to answer any email or concern we may have had. She helped us find a lovely apartment in just few days after we contacted her and she kept us updated throughout the whole process. It was such a breeze finding the right place to live in, thanks to her. I highly recommend her.

This review is for Kari Shannon. Kari was a huge help when my wife and I needed to find a 1br apartment in a very short time period. Kari selected 16 great apartments for us to see in one day, was easy to communicate with, and helped us think through the benefits of each different apartment. Kari also was a big help working with our super and management agency to accelerate the process since we needed to move in in less than one week. I would highly recommend working with Kari.

Andrew Vo from the 57th street corporate office is a rock star broker. My fiance and I were relocating from San Francisco to New York. We knew we had to find a broker but really didn't know the first thing about finding one. We happened to reach out to Andrew and he was nothing but great! My fiance was very particular in where we wanted to live and what we were looking for...(dog friendly, close to water, not so noisy, price range, garden if possible, etc). We met Andrew and he had a handful of places to show us. Some of them we loved and others eh, not so much. Andrew gave us the run down on how we needed to approach the ones we really liked as well as told us that he would like to take us out to see a few more if we had time before heading back to SF. This time I left my fiance behind since this process was not really something he "enjoyed" and he trusted my judgement (as long as Andrew kept us within the blocks that we gave to him). WOW - we found the place. Amazing location, great building, and had everything plus more that we were looking for. Andrew out did himself! Now I head back to SF and we need to get moving on securing the apartment. Andrew kept us informed every step of the way. We got beat by seconds of another party submitting their paper work - but that didn't stop Andrew. He went to the buidling first thing the next morning to see if there were any other apartments coming up - and there was one. Andrew took pictures for me, described the differences from the apartment that I orginally had seen to make sure that I was ok with them. Long story short - we got the apartment and Andrew was amazing with helping us with everything. I was a little nervous since the majority of the paperwork was going to be done with us still in San Francisco...Andrew didn't seem to have any issues with that. Very professional and a pleasure to work with. Thanks again Andrew we are so happy in our new home.

This review is for Andrew Vo. I have been through the NYC apartment search three times after this and Andrew gave me a new found view of brokers in NYC. In my previous searches, Brokers were either targeting specific apartments and not very helpful or they didn't really care for what I wanted and was always rushing me. It got me to the point where I didn't want to work with brokers and I would try my best to hunt the ads for no broker places. When I met with Andrew, I was thinking, here we go again but after we talked and he showed me places on the first day, I had a good feeling he was going to help me find a place that I would enjoy living in and met my criteria. He showed me around 20 places in a four week period and explained in detail the different types of places we were going to see and what was good about them. He also was patient and listened to what I wanted even if I didn't know what I wanted. At the end, I was very pleased with my apt hunting experiences this time around and I found a great place with his help. Thanks a bunch.

Anchor Associates Group was so helpful in our apartment search. We work with a new broker, Ryan McGuirl, who was so passionate and committed to our search. I would recommend Anchor Associates and Ryan to anyone!

This review is for Andrew Vo. Andrew was a total saint to work with as he guided my roommate and I through the whole process. I had to make changes to our apartment search numerous times regarding move-in dates and the number of roommates. Andrew showed me more than 20 apartments without complaint even though I was very selective and indecisive. When we had to restart our search due to changes in our living arrangement, he came back with a list of new options the very next day. He never pressured us into anything and was strictly professional the entire time. Communicating with Andrew made life so much easier for me when I was traveling. Easily accessible by email, text or phone, he always responded within a day and answered all of my questions every time. When my roommate and I finally decided on an apartment we liked, Andrew was there every step of the way during the application process. Recently, Andrew even came over to drop off cookies after we moved in as a housewarming gift. We are very lucky to have found someone that is so thoughtful, patient and experienced to be our guide in a city where there are so many sketchy brokers. Would absolutely recommend Andrew to anyone. (Especially if you are as indecisive as me!)

My roommates and I were moving to NYC from Canada and were not familiar with the real estate market here. Lucky for us, we were introduced to Andrew Vo of Anchor Associates. Andrew helped us look through many locations - being mindful our collective requirements for housing and timelines (being that we were coming from out of town to view places). Eventually we settled on a place that was about as good as it was going to get in NY for the price range we were looking for. Andrew was very friendly, knowledgeable, responsive, and helpful through the entire process. An added bonus was Andrew's focus on customer service after the lease was signed (ie. Welcome baskets, offering to help with moving etc.) I would definitely recommend him to anyone that's moving into the NYC area.

Moving to NYC can be a difficult process. However, with Oren’s help and expertise it was very easily managed. Oren has helped me find two apartments in the city. The first apartment was my first in NYC so we were excited to find the perfect place. We worked with Oren for a multiple weekends until we found the right place. We probably drove him crazy but he was always available and continued to show us places until we were happy. We ended up in a perfect 3 bedroom apartment which was very affordable in a great location in midtown. We then moved three years later and Oren was there to help. We wanted to move south so he showed us places and worked with our work schedules, meeting late or on weekends. Oren found us an extremely rare “junior 4” which was an incredible apartment in Gramercy. Not only is Oren a great broker but I consider him a friend who I can trust. I would recommend him to friends and family in a heartbeat.

THANK YOU again for finding us the most amazing place to live :) Definitely wouldn''t have found this on our own. If there''s anyone looking for an apartment or to relocate in NYC in the future I will surely recommend them to you!

My roommate and I used Anchor Associates when looking for a rental apartment this past month. We connected with Vu Tran, who had been recommended to us by friends of ours. Having used a broker from a different company a year ago where it was apparent that he only seemed to care about what he earned off of our rental, we knew what qualities to look for in our next broker. Vu was exactly what we needed in order to go through the seemingly long application process- he helped us navigate through all of the paperwork we needed to send in and was always patient with us. He helped us understand the various fees (and not in a way that he helping us for his own good). We told him we wanted to sign a two year lease- he helped us make sure the rent increase from 2014-2015 wouldn't be too high. He was a fantastic liaison between us (our application) and the building/management company. Most importantly, we felt GOOD paying him the brokers fee that came with the apartment/company because he so genuinely wanted to help us find an apartment and not go through the same experience with a broker that we had had the prior year. I can't speak for all of the reps from Anchor Associates, but if they are half as great as Vu I would definitely recommend working with them.

I was looking to rent an apartment in the UWS or UES in less than 5 days, since I had to go back to work as soon as possible. Kevin proved to be savvy, professional, and reliable. He would point out any flaws the apartment had and made accurate comments. He also answered his phone every time and responded very quickly to my text messages/emails. He did not pressure me to get an apartment, he gave me useful neighborhood tips, and he genuinely worked hard to find a good match for me. I would recommend him again in a heartbeat and I plan to rely on him if I ever need to rent a different apartment again.

This review is for Marija Paunovic Erdeljan I would like to write this review for Marija Paunovic Erdeljan because she was an absolute pleasure - not only was she extremely professional in showing me various apartments, but, she was super personable and down to earth. She was honest, funny, kind and just a joy! I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for an apartment in NYC! She is an absolute doll!

Amy found us a very nice 4bd around Columbia University. We are international students and were really in need of a good apartment in a safe and convenient area. Amy was very familiar with the area. She and our friend in NY found us the best 4bd within our budget. She is very professional and patient with our questions and inquiries. I highly recommend Amy if you need a real estate agent. --- July 14, 2013

POSTED ON YELP: As a first-time apartment hunter in NYC, I found the process incredibly stressful and overwhelming. I spent my first few days visiting disaster after disaster, either by myself or with other brokers, feeling like I would never find what my roommate and I were looking for. I called Gilad Paz at Anchor Associates to inquire about an online listing. From the start, Gilad was calm, understanding, and incredibly helpful. We met a few hours later, and Gilad was prepared with a list of places that met our needs. He had a genuine demeanor that I didn''t find in other brokers, and his laid-back vibe mixed with his focused commitment to helping us, made me feel at ease. We loved the first place we saw, and took it! Throughout the application process, Gilad was very helpful and made a difficult process seem incredibly easy and smooth. I would recommend Gilad and Anchor Associates without hesitation.

We had a great experience working with Scott Schiller at Anchor Associates. Our son had a summer internship and we wanted to find him a furnished apartment in a good building - Scott showed us a beautiful furnished studio in Murray Hill and it was ideal! The place was immaculate, furnished with every possible amenity and everything was in perfect working order. Scott was responsive whenever we needed anything at all and it''s been a wonderful rental experience from beginning to end. I would not hesitate to use Anchor Associates in the future and give them my highest recommendation.

Mitchell was really great! He was straight forward and found me an amazing apartment in Murray Hill in the perfect building! I couldn''t be happier! He''s very quick and responsive and I would definitely work with him again! The fee was worth every penny!

Ryan McGuirl is awesome! He was very professional and listened to our criteria for an apartment. He took us apartment hunting all day in the pouring rain and was very focused on finding us a place that we liked. He was also very adaptive - we changed some of our preferences during the search and he quickly called his team to find more places that matched our new criteria. We would definitely recommend him!

FROM YELP: This review is about my experience working with Gilad Paz. I was supposed to move to NYC from the West Coast to start working in mid-August, so I was looking for an apartment in NYC. I intended to fly to New York for four days before my start date to check out the apartments and sign the lease. My friend recommended me Gilad as a very helpful and professional agent, so I contacted him. From day one, Gilad has proven himself to be a professional who cares about clients and listens to their preferences very carefully. He has asked me about the list of features I would want to have in my "ideal" pad, listened carefully to my suggestions, scheduled a tentative appointment and emailed me a very detailed list of documents I needed to have with me in order to apply for the apartment and/or sign the lease. I flew in to NYC on Sunday, met Gilad on Monday and went through several apartments with him (7 bldgs with about 12 apartments total, if I remember correctly). Gilad had a much more lenghty list, but he was adjusting it in real-time, given my opinions about the apartments viewed in order to avoid seeing those which would not fit my tastes. Finally, we came across an apartment that I absolutely liked, Gilad helped me go through the application process, and the lease was signed the next day. I was able to get my apartment keys and even move some of my stuff in by Thursday, which was super quick. Working with Gilad was a great experience, and I would highly recommend him to everyone. He is great at reading his clients'' mind and pays a great deal of attention to one''s tastes and preferences.

I would like to write this review for Howard Hauptman. My colleague recommended Howard after I got relocated to NYC back in Nov. His patience, integrity and quality of service struck me. He helped me to find rentals last year. He is always on time for appointments, and always listen to me attentively. Eventually I found a short term rental through a friend, yet, I still appreciate his help and efforts. Six months went by and I started to think seriously about buying. I thought of Howard immediately and I called him. He threw himself wholeheartedly to find me the best home in NYC. Long story short, we went through a lot of frustration and anger in the process. After an accepted offer was annulled, I decided to rent as i need to move out soon. Then, Howard started to look for rental again for me. Eventually, he found the perfect rental for me and I moved in this week. I am so happy to finally find my own place and settle down. Howard helps to find my dream place and he is a great friend of mine. In the process, I have learned a lot from him about customer service, about NYC, family and even life in general. He is ultimate professional in real estate!!!! I strongly recommend Howard to anyone who is new to the city simply because he is the BEST. thanks Anchor and thanks Howard.

I had to move from Boston to NYC for work and had less than a month to find a place. I had no idea of the neighborhoods in NYC and where I wanted to live. Ronaldo is one of the best realtors I have worked with (and I move around ALOT). He was highly professional, respectable, personable, reliable and considerate. He never cancelled on me, was always on time and knew NYC extremely well. He was vey patient with me, answered all my questions and showed me apartments that met my priorities/requirements. I HIGHLY recommend Anchor Associates Group (and Ronaldo!) to anyone & everyone looking to find their home in NYC.

-- This review is written for Marija Paunovic Erdeljan -- Marija was a great asset to our apartment search! I recently moved from Boston, MA and was quite nervous considering the fact that it is not an easy job finding an apartment in NYC. That being said, Marija definitely made it much easier! We didnt have your typical client-broker strictly business relationship with Marija. This is because, while very professional and assertive at the same time, Marija has a very warm personality and a great sense of humor. Marija was also very responsive during all of the phases of our apartment hunt. She kept updating us on new findings very frequently, showing great knowledge of the market and the neighborhoods, which gave us comfort that we are not missing out on anything potentially interesting. One of the most important things is that Marija answered all of our questions very honestly and quickly, which is something i really respect! After having such a great experience with Marija, i would definitely have to say that she is my choice for any future apartment searches, and would like to recommend her to everyone else as well! Anchor Associates can be proud of having a person like Marija on their team.

Marija Paunovic Erdeljan represented me for my first apartment. First a friend referred me to Anchor Associates, and while on their site I found a promising apartment, along with Marija''s contact information. She contacted me quickly and made an appointment for me to see the apartment. She was accommodating and friendly, in an otherwise overwhelming process for me. That first apartment ended up being perfect, along with my experience working with Marija. She was thoughtful, and informed and a huge help. I can''t thank her enough.

After working overseas for more than 5 years and having no recent U.S credit history, I expected the process of securing an apartment lease in Manhattan would be a nightmare. However, David was able to make the entire process simple, efficient and even enjoyable. First, he showed me multiple apartments in my price range and within the very specific area I had requested. He also helped expedite getting all the necessary paperwork in place for a quick approval by the building. David also made sure the lease signing process went smoothly. Overall, he provided excellent service and made the experience effortless. I won''t hesitate to refer friends and relatives to David and Anchor in the future.

Francois Baron was extremely helpful during our apartment search. My fiancé and I were looking for a 1-bedroom apartment in the midtown area. We were relatively pragmatic in our search and tried our best to prioritize our wants (lots of sunlight, large-ish kitchen, etc.) hoping to find a place that met some of them! I really felt that Francois understood us and he showed us a number of apartments with a variety of charcateristics that matched our requests over a 2-day period. As so often happens, what we thought we wanted before visiting apartments, and what we actually liked while visiting apartments with Francois, were very different. We are very thankful that Francois showed us a wide range so we could actually see the differences and make an informed decision. We ended up finding a place with Francois and couldn''t be happier!

John is very helpful and respond very quickly. Any inquiry I had he was able to get all the information back to me. Anything that he is not sure or don''t know he will try to find the answer for me and quite quickly. I am quite impress with his service. He is also very patience and able to arrange many properties for me to see in a very short period of time. he is also very helpful in find lawyer and account to help me close the deal and for tax purposes. He seems to know all the area quite well and able to help guide which area would be good to buy, especially for investment.

John is a professional of the highest quality. I would be the first to recommend him to anyone in search of an apartment in Manhattan. His knowledge of the field of real estate is truly impressive and he is always on the ball in keeping you up to date with regard to the latest developments. I was always very comfortable working with him and his partner. Read the full review on Zillow.

John Santulli was our agent. He was great. We called him on Saturday and he was ready on Monday. Not only was he prompt, he was able to meet our very specific criteria including 2 dogs, which is not an easy thing in NYC. Anchor was cool as well because they were able to reduce the crazy expensive fees from 15-10%, which is still high, but very fair relative to NYC.

- Nina M. ,   July 24, 2013
 
I worked with John Santulli and it was a great experience! After countless brokers said we couldn''t find anything in our price range within the areas we wanted; John found it. He was always honest and upfront with what we could/couldn''t find and worked every day to find what is now our perfect apartment. Amazing location and exactly what my roommates and I wanted. He even gave us an amazing bottle of champagne at our lease signing. First broker I''ve worked with who has truly cared about what I wanted and didn''t try to sell me. I have and will continue to recommend John to all of my friends and family looking for apartments in NYC. Thanks John!!

- Jessica L. ,   July 24, 2013
 
I just wanted to send along some feedback regarding our experience working with John Santulli, who helped us search for an apartment in the upper east side his past August. Although we didn''t end up renting any of the apartments that he showed us (we found one on our own), he was incredibly helpful throughout the process and certainly went above and beyond. In my experience with brokers, which has been many since I''ve moved 8 times in the last 10 years, John was by far the the best. He was very motivated, honest, and incredibly professional. Most importantly, he kept up with our ever changing wishlist, and was determined to find an apartment that fit our needs and in our price range. Overall, it was a great experience working with John and I would definitely recommend him to my friends or seek his services in the future.

- Molly ,   July 24, 2013
 
My fiance and I worked with John Santulli to find an apartment on the Upper West Side. John was absolutely fantastic and found us the perfect place to live. I initially contacted John after seeing an apartment that he posted to Craigslist. While we were on the phone he offered to set up a two hour appointment for the following day to show me additional apartments in our price range that had the specifications I mentioned on the phone. The following day, he showed me four apartments, each of which I seriously considered whether it could be our home, which proved that he had done a targeted search and was listening to what we were looking for. When we decided on the apartment that we wanted to apply for, he helped us gather the necessary documentation and was flexible when we had to reschedule our lease signing meeting. At the lease signing, John brought us a bottle of nice quality champagne as a congratulations gift. We were extremely impressed with John''s professionalism and it was a pleasure to work with him! I would recommend him to anyone.

- Janine D. ,   July 24, 2013
 
Jin Kim at Anchor was very helpful--very competent, well-informed, and eager to help us find just what we were looking for. Thanks to her, we found a place that met all of our (fairly lengthy list of) requirements. And she even advised on negotiating with the landlord. Highly recommended!

- Elizabeth M. ,   July 24, 2013
 
This is the 2nd year in a row, I''ve used John Santulli to help find my apartment. Moving is a huge hassle, and John helped to show us all the availibilities in our price range in the desired location. He found us a great apartment last year, but unfortunately we were forced to move out beyond our control. This year we applied for 3 apts, 2 of which fell through because of issues with the management co(no fault to John), and he stuck with us and continued to show us what was available after each application fell through. John was diligent in his search for us, and did not pressure us to do close any listings that he showed us. We were in a huge time constraint and John helped to make sure that the application process moved as quick as possible. I would definitely use John again in the future, and recommend him to anyone who is seeking a apartment.

- Marc S. ,   July 24, 2013
 
We had the pleasure of working with John Santulli and his team on a rental apartment search. John is professional, efficient, knowledgeable, well informed, patient, not pushy and open to explore every request. In a matter of 2 days we saw about 10 different apartments and in 2 weeks we settled on one. In every way John was a mensch and we highly recommend using his services.

- Rachel L. ,   July 24, 2013
 
We had spent nearly a week on Craigslist, only to be thoroughly disappointed with inaccurate/misleading listings and some sketchy brokers. My friend recommended John Santulli at Anchor and within two days of showing us around we found the apartment we''re living in now and that we''re so happy with. Our apartment-hunting experience went from night to day thanks to John. He was super-straightforward and an extremely clear and efficient communicator throughout the whole process. He took detailed notes of our phone conversations that he emailed to us, and answered all of my (too many) emails right away. He gave us a realistic perspective on everything, but no pressure. I''ve recommended him to several friends since and I would start with him if I had to look for an apartment again. Highest possible recommendation.

- Chris G. ,   July 24, 2013
 
John is the most organized broker we have ever worked with. Not only does he listen to your specific living needs, but he writes everything down and emails it back to you. He asked us questions we hadn’t thought to ask ourselves. If that wasn’t enough, he found us an apartment bigger than we had hoped for at a the rent we were able to pay in the heart of the neighborhood we wanted to live in. He worked hard but he didn’t oversell. And when things got delayed, he calmly stepped in and got the paperwork signed. John has his own style and it works for him. And us.

This is my 3rd year living in Manhattan and never, NOT ONCE, have I met a BETTER BROKER than John Santulli. I called John and explained to him that I had one week to find my next apartment or I''d be living on the street. It was a desperate situation, to say the least. But John calmly listened to all my needs and assured me that he could find me an apartment. I doubted him because of my previous, negative experiences with brokers. Instead he found me my DREAM STUDIO. In only two short outings over the course of two days John provided me with a selections of 15 apartments to choose among. When I finally decided on one, he made sure the paperwork and application process went as smoothly as our showings. To say the least, I was AMAZED at the service Anchor Associates provided. These people are truly professionals at what they do. I can''t say enough good things. (Note: I''ve used other brokers in the past...Halstead, City Habitats, and Best Apartments. The worst was Best Apartments. Beware of the tall, blonde, skinny Nordic looking fellow. He double dipped me and my boyfriend last year and still charged us a 15% fee!!! Horrible people and an even worse broker!)

- Brian P. ,   July 24, 2013
 
Jin is a fantastic agent. She helped place me twice so far in Manhattan NYC. She is very punctual with appointments and follows up promptly. She does a great job at listening to your needs and goals and finds listings that match your situation and price. She was very helpful and accommodating when I lost my apartment in hurricane sandy. She helped me find a new place within a matter of days and was willing to go above and beyond to help me find a new place. She is a great agent and I highly recommend Jin as your next agent during your apartment search.

- Salvatore L. ,   July 24, 2013
 
I had a ruthless landlord. I needed to break my lease. She of course wouldn''t let me out of it. Jin Kim came to the rescue and found someone to take my apt within a couple of weeks. She went out of her way to work with the coop board to get the new person in as quickly as possible. I''ve also recommended her to many of my friends that needed apts. She is professional and not pushy as some realtors can be. I will definitely keep recommending her to anyone that needs an apt. Seek her out, she will not let you down and will make you laugh along the way.

- Kelly H. ,   July 24, 2013
 
When I got a job in NYC John helped me find a fantastic, dog friendly apartment very quickly (actually in 2 days!) He helped with everything from guiding me to safe neighborhood to helping me deal with a difficult management company. When I was transferred back to the west coast much earlier that anticipated John and his associate Jin, helped me to find someone to rent my apartment in less than a week. They made what was a very difficult process, especially in a city like NYC, a very easy. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for a place in Manhattan.

- Jessica R. ,   July 24, 2013
 
In a town with upwards to 15,000 or 20,000 real estate brokers, one is still challenged to navigate the long list of brokers/firms in order to find someone that is going to make your process as smooth as possible. I was adamant about finding an apartment myself in order to avoid additional fees. However, the process was simply too overwhelming. After having only negative experiences with a handful of brokers, my roommate and I finally met John Santulli. John not only made the process smooth and easy, he was straightforward and honest with us the entire time. In addition, John found an awesome place for us Downtown. He earned his fee big time! I continue to reference John when colleagues and friends ask for a broker recommendation. Thanks John!

- Darragh C. ,   July 24, 2013
 
Anchor has totally impressed me! I was looking to have my upper east side apt rented. I had been trying on my own but with work I could not do it and so I called John Santulli and Jin Kin. Actually another agent who no longer does rentals told me to speak with John and that he could get it rented faster than anyone could and HE WAS RIGHT! John and Jin rented it in ONE WEEK! I know my place was in good condition but IT was their skills and network that GOT IT RENTED !! I am still so Wowed with the speed and quality of the tenant they found me! I am so grateful to them! They will get all my future rentals and I refer them to anyone that is searching for a place or has a place they need to get rented . Super profession, fast, knowlegable a great experience! THANK YOU !!! Read this review on Yelp

My son was moving to NYC and needed an apartment near Fordham Law. I contacted Anchor Associates and found Helene Campbell. Helene immediately asked all the right questions and started the search. Once my son, his girlfriend and I arrived in NYC Helene took us to 4 apartments that evening. She couldn''t have been any nicer and truly cared about finding us the perfect place. The next morning we looked at several others and found the one that fit all their needs. Helene handled the paperwork, dealing with the manager and made me feel a lot better about the move. I can honestly say that Helene Campbell is truly one of the best agents in NYC, without her I don''t know what I would have done. NYC is not the place to move to without the help of a professional and that is what Helene is. Helene Campbell is one of the most caring, thoughtful and enthusiastic people I have had the pleasure of ever dealing with. Do yourself a favor and use Helene for all your real estate needs, she''s the best

A few months ago I started the process of apartment hunting in New York, as I knew that I would be relocating to the city in September. I was referred to a particular agent through a friend, and was surprised to hear from the agent first! Everyone was extremely nice, professional and proactive - unlike many realtors out there. Jimmy Fernandes and Ryan McGuirl toured my mom and I around the city. The first day that we met they had a list of apartments for us to tour. As we began the search, they were very understanding of what we were looking for. Finally, a few hours later, we walked into a beautiful building and found "the" apartment! Since we had to travel into the city from CT, they were very willing to rearrange their schedules for us. The application process took longer than expected, but both agents were very communicative and helped us every step of the way. I would HIGHLY recommend these agents to anyone looking in the city!

Kari Shannon just helped my girlfriend and I find a new apartment. She worked hard to find us a variety of good apartments based on our detailed requirements. Communication and logistics were both easy with Kari, too. And she helped us get a price break on the rent and secure extra storage space in the new building. Even the move-in date worked out perfectly. I definitely recommend Kari if you are looking for an apartment in the UES.

I would like to write a review for Samona Butler because it was a real pleasure to have her help. She was able to show me places according to my criteria and found me a great apartment. She was always willing to help me with all my needs and available all the time. I am really happy with her work and with the apartment she found me.

Anna Steinman is not only the best realtor with whom I have ever worked, but she may also be the most competent person I have ever known. Without reservation, I highly recommend her to anyone. Her knowledge of the business is truly masterful; she is literally able to answer any question on-the-spot. Once again thank you.

Anna responded to me extremely quickly and answered all my questions. She showed me many listings that all met my requirements and I was just thrilled that she was able to meet me on such short notice. She is extremely nice and always had my best interests at heart. I look forward in working with her again soon as I finalize my move date.

David Findel was an absolute pleasure to work with and I could not have asked for a better broker for my first apartment in NYC. He took the time to take me an
