Mr. Michael Pakula help''ed us found our first home in Mahattan. In a big city like new york, it may not be very easy to have a concrete idea about what you really want in the first place. Michael is very patient and professional. He help''ed us get our ideal apartment within a very short amount of time. Finally, Michael used his professional network to secure our deal at a very competitive price.
In summary, I am very appreciated of Mr.Pakula''s excellent work. I would highly recommend Mr. Pakula as a responsible real estate broker to any of my friends who are still in house hunting.
This is my second year in NYC and the second time I''ve needed to find an apartment. Last year was a terrible experience with the brokers I contacted - they always charged really high fees or seemed to somehow not really have your best interests at heart. After that, I had a very negative view on brokers.....but Ande changed all of that!!
Ande is an exceptional, hard-working, honest agent. She goes out of her way to find you listings that she''ll know you''ll like and is super organized with setting up appointments and such - none of the aimless walking around, wasting a whole day. My roommates and I worked with her and she found us a really great place, at a good price, and was very honest in fees (she found us a "no fee" place , even when other brokers were still trying to charge us a fee on the same location!). Furthermore, it only took one afternoon to find a unit we were really happy with.
Even when we thought we wouldn''t get the apartment due to an administrative mixup, she personally went into the building''s leasing office to negotiate. She is great at following up, making sure you feel like you''re in the loop, and extremely efficient.
In an industry that isn''t known for being very forthright, Ande definitely stands as an example of what a broker should be. I''m very glad that I contacted her and put my trust in her to find us this apartment!

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

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

"Michael is always on it.....you can depend on him 100% to get the job done.....In our case there were mountains of paperwork demanded by the Board of Directors, Approval process and countless exchanges between the Buyers and Sellers. Michael handled everything adroitly, on time and we look forward to working with Michael again on new endeavors."
"Michael was extremely helpful in helping find the right apartment for the right price. He displayed his knowledge of the Manhattan real estate market and always went about the process with the upmost patience and attention to detail. I felt that I was in good hands from start to finish and would definitely recommend Michael."
