GREAT experience finding the PERFECT place..

It was a really great experience to work with Katya! She helped us find a perfect place, just exactly what we were looking for. Katya was able to accommodate our price range, the location and other requirements we had about the apartment. The whole process was very smooth and quick. Katya is an amazing agent! I highly recommend her services to anybody who doesn't need any trouble to find an apartment of their dreams!

Top quality agent katya is responsible and knowledgable

I was so happy to have Katya as my broker. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and answered all the questions I had. I was looking for an apartment in Manhattan and didn't know how the whole process goes. Katya worked hard on finding a perfect apartment in quite a limited budged. She was very flexible to accommodate my crazy schedule and made the whole situation less stressful. I was beyond happy to find exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend Katya to anyone. She is honest, responsible, knowledgable and one of the nicest people I met!

So happy with our new home thanks to katya

Katya was a HUGE pleasure to work with. She took time to listen to what we were really looking for in an apartment and did all of the grunt work negotiating the best deal possible. We ended up with the size, location, renovations, and building features we really wanted. We couldn't be happier to move into our new home and couldn't have done it without her!

Jason Tsalka is so hardworking and highly recommended!

Jason Tsalkas helped me find an apartment in Financial District when I was moving from Florida. I had spoken to a few real estate agents and non of them were willing to put in the hard work like he did. Many days before and during my visit to NY to look at places, Jason was in constant contact searching for listings. He listened to my needs and reserved days out of his schedule to work on my search. He's extremely hard-working, patient, and generous. He also really cares and that is a rare characteristic in a NYC real estate agent. I needed to get my 80 lbs. Golden Retriever into a weight restricted building in FiDi and he stopped at nothing to make it happen. After signing my lease, he remained available in an instant for any other questions I had and even gave me a little housewarming gift at the end. I would absolutely use his real estate services in the future.

Jason is one in a million as far as genuine NYC Real Estate Brokers go

Jason is one in a million as far as genuine NYC Real Estate Brokers go. I was lucky enough to get in contact with him early in my apartment search. 

It started from the way beginning where he responded to my first inquiry with a list of questions for me to answer, so he could best understand everything I wanted in my future apartment. 

That led to multiple hour long phone calls at all hours of the day/night with him providing knowledge of the NYC Real Estate Markets to myself and working his hardest to learn all about myself so he could find the perfect apartment for my friends and I. I felt I could ask him any question in the world and would always get the truth back from him. 

I ended up looking into some apartments with Jason and he was just as helpful in person, showing us a variety of great apartment options in different neighborhoods. He was sure to clearly state all of the differences between the apartments and everything they had to offer. 

Unfortunately one of my friends ended up speaking with another broker who ended up showing us a different apartment we really liked which had a later move in date which was in our favor. You would think upon hearing this Jason would lose interest in talking with us, since the sale was gone, but this was not the case what so ever. 

Jason continued to look for the perfect place for my friends and I, just in case the apartment we had our eyes on fell through. Jason even called me to update me and ask how our search was going, giving me great information on my entire process. 

Before signing our lease with another broker, Jason was the first person I went to, to ask all of the questions I had about the lease/new broker I was working with and if there was anything I should look out for. I spent an hour on a three way call with Jason and my roommate the night prior to our lease signing and he answered everything for us and made us feel comfortable going forward. He did this out of the kindness of his heart and truly wanted to make sure we were not being played in any manner and were getting the best deal we could. 

I would 100% recommend Jason to anyone looking for an apartment in New York City and have already shared his number with multiple friends of mine of whom I know are looking to make the move into the city in the coming months. 

My mind is at ease knowing that I will have Jason to go to when my next lease runs out and am looking for a new apartment. 

Thank you Jason for providing me with such a positive NYC real estate experience!

Jason seemed super trustworthy and genuinely invested in finding us the perfect apartment.

Going into finding our first apartment, my roommate and I were nervous about sketchy brokers that tend to be everywhere in NYC. I booked appointments with multiple brokers to see a bunch of places but ultimately cancelled them all in exchange for just Jason. Every other broker seemed to be scamming recent college grads into seeing apartments that don't look like the images in the listing, that are a more expensive price than what is advertised, and aren't actually in the location they are advertised as being in. Jason seemed super trustworthy and genuinely invested in finding us the perfect apartment. Everything he did was in our best interest and he never once tried to fool or scam us. We gave Jason our credentials as far as price and location and he went above and beyond to show us everything there is to see. He was also always available to talk when we needed (which was a lot). He worked around the clock for us in a time that he understood was extremely stressful.

Even after we signed the lease and the transaction was complete, Jason stayed in touch with us to make sure everything was going well and that we felt comfortable in our new home. If you want a trustworthy broker who will work in your best interest and be super personable, definitely contact Jason.

Alex rescues the lack of trust I had in real estate agents

Alex rescues the lack of trust I had in real estate agents. He works with integrity and transparency. He communicates in a clear manner and was extremely knowledgeable in terms of what I was looking for. He is personable and provided lightening quick responses even on weekends.  I appreciated his hard work and enthusiasm to help me find exactly what I needed.  I would highly recomend him and would contact him for services when required in the future. Thank you Alex for the wonderful experience and for making this process so smooth. You are amazing!!!

[ALEX] He is a testament to Platinum Properties and blows the competition away.

I just wanted to thank you for you swift response and lightning efforts in helping us out. We can see why you were so highly recommended. 

In particular I wanted to let you know how fantastic Alex has been throughout this whole thing. We'd met some pretty unhelpful people up until this stage and were beginning to lose faith. Alex was not only of the utmost courtesy and professionalism, he at times has gone far beyond the call of duty to look after us and make us feel comfortable. He was always in control of the situation. 

He is a testament to Platinum Properties and blows the competition away. 

We will of course be recommending you and Alex to our friends who move to New York. 

Best wishes, 

Ross and Daisy.

Jesse was extremely reliable and competent from first viewing to closing.

Jesse was extremely reliable and competent from first viewing to closing. Having had a bad real-estate broker in the past, Jesse made my wife and i feel extremely well taken care of. He responded to queries promptly and made himself available to answer questions at quite unreasonable hours. I would have complete confidence recommending Jesse to any and all my friends and family. He made a stressful experience as pain and hassle-free as possible and am very grateful to him for it.

Going to see apartments with [Marina] is like going with your best friend.

I honestly can't thank enough to Marina Whalen for the incredible support she has been during my apartment hunting. It's my first apartment in New York and I wanted everything to be perfect and I couldn't be happier with the one I got. We went to see dozens of places that were exactly what I was looking for and Marina literally circled across the entire city to help me find the perfect apartment. Going to see these with her was like going with your best friend who wouldn't let you jump into premature decisions or making you see features that you might have been missing. She also helped me with decoration ideas as she has a strong background on design. I would look for an apartment anywhere in the world with her. Thank you so much, Marina!

[Constantinos] has been amazing to work with and made the entire process so seamless for us.

My roommate and I recently worked with Gus [Constantinos] Katehis and he found us an amazing apartment in Chelsea that we could not be more excited to move into in the next couple weeks. I don't have enough good things to say about him as an agent and I thought it necessary to relay how positive our experience was to you. I felt he understood what we were looking for as renters and he really delivered. He kept in constant communication so we never felt on the outs—a feeling that leaves you very uneasy, as you can imagine, in the rental/application process. He's been amazing to work with and made the entire process so seamless for us. We hope and plan to work with him again in the future and have already recommended him to so many friends in the city!

"A friend recommended Teresa [Stephenson] at Platinum, and she was the best..."

When I decided to get my own NYC apartment, I knew I needed guidance. A friend recommended Teresa at Platinum, and she was the best. She understood "the impossible" I was looking for - affordable, cute, and in a cool neighborhood. She investigated every single link I sent to her. She sent me ideas outside the box. She saw the silver linings and was honest when I was being too picky, but was also protective and critical of properties when necessary. She was patient and super fun to spend a Saturday with. I highly recommend these folks!
