We had a great experience working with Annie Hawkins, who helped us to secure a studio in a tranquil, sought-after location in Inwood. We have been looking for studios around this location for about 3 weeks, and as soon as the opportunity comes up, we contacted Annie immediately. Annie responded within minutes of receiving our message and we arranged a time to view the studio the very next day. The rest of the process was smooth and Annie was extremely communicative, reliable and dependable.

What differentiates Annie from other brokers in the area:
1. The quality of her listing: we checked out over 20 places in the Inwood / Washington Heights area. Let’s be honest, here. Some of the apartments / studios we saw are simply decrepit. We only saw one listing by Annie and it’s much better than everything else we have seen. Not only was the rent reasonable, there was elevator in the building and laundry on site, both of which were very important for us.
2. Annie is an articulate, honest and reliable professional: Throughout the process of working with Annie, she did not once try to peddle items / services that were not necessary. We have come across an obscene amount of unscrupulous brokers in the area. Annie is a woman of character who delivered everything that we agreed on.
3. Annie’s knowledge in the Inwood / Marble Hill area: since she has been living here for many years, she helped us out with recommendations for window blinds, coffee shops, as well as other useful things. The “intangibles” of having someone who is intimately familiar with the area have been tremendously helpful.

If you are looking to rent a place around the Inwood / Marble Hill area, Annie Hawkins is unequivocally the go-to person that you need to get in touch with.

My husband and I were lucky enough to connect with Annie Hawkins when we were looking for an apartment in Manhattan. We wanted an apt. we could afford in a nice neighborhood, hard enough in NY generally, nearly impossible in Manhattan! But Annie found us an even better apt. than the one we had first inquired about and right across from a beautiful park! Annie introduced us to the neighborhood, showing us the best restaurants, stores and spots to enjoy the beauty of the parks in the area. She helped us with a locksmith, a mover, and just went so far beyond just showing us an apartment to make us feel welcome in our new neighborhood and settle in. (I know we are not the only ones she has done this for because walking through the neighborhood she was greeted by other tenants she had found apts. for, and everyone from the super to the locksmith speaks of her as the special person she is.) If you want an apt. you will love, call Annie! You won''t be disappointed.

If you’re thinking of living in Inwood, Marble Hill, Ft. George or Hudson Heights chances are that sooner or later you’ll meet real estate broker Annie Hawkins. Now that you know.....make it sooner.
Annie is everywhere up here, she knows everyone and every place in these great neighborhoods. She is a good listener and will not show you an apartment that does not fit your criteria. In other words, she won’t waste your time. But spending time with her is a blast, so look forward to exploring the neighborhood and having a lot of laughs along the way. I had a pressure-filled two week window to find a rental in Inwood before I sold my apartment and with Annie''s guidance I got a wonderful place that I hope to live in for many years. She has a great rapport with her landlords and that leads to a pleasant lease signing experience. In the end, you’ll probably have an apartment and you’ll definitely have a new friend in the neighborhood.

Dear Annie,

Thank you for all of your help in finding my new apartment. I am
absolutely in love with it and am so excited to move in! I have
worked with several brokers in my eight years in New York, and by far,
you have been the most professional and knowledgeable. I really
appreciated how upfront you were about everything and all of the time
you took to educate me on the apartment and the neighborhood. While I
hope that I won''t have to move again for a long time, if I do, I will
definitely be coming back to you. I look forward to referring my
friends to you so that they can have the same wonderful experience
with you that I did. Apartment hunting is not always a fun process,
but you made it very enjoyable!

Thanks again,
Wesley Clark

Dear Annie

I just want to thank you for your assistance in our apartment hunting
for Keane. You were informative, helpful, and responsive. I am
particularly impressed with your efficiency and the ability to always
maintain a friendly smile at all times. I will certainly tell my
friends and colleagues to ask for you if they are in need of
assistance for finding housing in the Medical Center area.

Moving to NYC or moving within NYC are both challenging undertakings - and searching for the right apartment can be the hardest part. But not if you have the right person helping you! When I moved back to NYC in 2006 and most recently this year when I, like a lot of folks, decided to downsize and find a new place to live, I was so fortunate to work with Annie Hawkins. Annie is a consummate professional - engaged, caring, thorough and always on time, each step of the journey. She has helped someone else I know as well and he had equally positive things to say about her. Annie carefully considers your priorities and draws on her resources and knowledge of the neighborhood - she doesn''t waste time. She went out of her way, both times, to help with all aspects of the application process and was a consistent, encouraging presence during what is often a stressful time. I cannot recommend her more highly and hope you will choose to work with her when you make your big move!
