February 2020 by Bower L. , WENT THE EXTRA MILE
My first time renting in NYC and I couldn''t have picked a better broker. Annie is very thorough, kind, patient and always went the extra mile. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our experience with Annie. It was very pleasant to work with an agent who was communicative, knowledgeable about the community, and straightforward about the building and apartment we were viewing. When we decided to apply to rent, Annie helped us get everything done quickly and efficiently. We highly recommend Annie''s services.

February 2020 by Troy R. , THOUGHTFUL AND THOROUGH
We had already looked at a dozen apartments before seeing the place that would become our new home with Annie. We loved the apartment immediately and appreciated the thoughtful and thorough approach that Annie took with the application and rental process. She was professional and polite at every step. She responded to all communications quickly and was always very open and honest in them. We are settling into our new apartment and grateful for her assistance.

February 2020 by Brad R. , PATIENT, PROFESSIONAL, CARING
We came to our new building looking for a space to call home and we cannot thank Sovereign Associates enough for helping to make that a reality. Annie was patient and took such care with us as we explored our space. She was a consummate professional as she addressed our questions and concerns wIth the move. We are thrilled with our new rental and are so grateful for Annie and the assistance she provided.

January 2020 by Lalita B. , ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL
Annie is a phenomenal realtor who got me an outstanding, corner apartment that I absolutely love. It’s a 1 bedroom in Inwood that’s almost 1000 square feet! Annie made sure I saw it before anyone else did. When I required an earlier move in date, Annie made sure it happened with ease. She’s a great person to work with who has the contacts and the knowledge to get you a great apartment in NYC that you can call home. This was hands down the easiest experience I ever had finding an apartment in NYC. In fact, it landed in my lap! Thanks, Annie!

December 2019 by Femke S. , HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ANYONE

We recently started looking for an apartment uptown, and met Sovereign agent Annie Hawkins at one of our first viewings. From a brief conversation on site she quickly gleaned exactly what we were searching for. She showed us a beautiful property in Marble Hill that fit our needs exactly. We put in an application immediately, and Annie was very helpful in advising us in this process. It is very much thanks to her that we found our new home! Having met and worked with various other brokers throughout our time in New York City, we feel comfortable recommending Annie to anyone!

November 2019 by Delia and David , ACCOMMODATING AND RELIABLE
My husband and I needed to find a studio rental in Washington Heights for frequent and extended family visits to help with after-school childcare. Our distance to the city and other circumstances were somewhat unusual. Annie Hawkins quickly got a good feel of what we needed, minimizing the time we spent screening possibilities. She was extremely accommodating and reliable, efficiently scheduling appropriate viewings. She went out of her way to facilitate our application process. Her knowledge of area buildings, regulations and resources is outstanding. We recommend her without reservations.

November 2019 by Gardner F. , RESPONSIVE AND ACCOMMODATING
We ended up finding our new apartment via StreetEasy, and Annie Hawkins of Sovereign managed our contract. It was wonderful working with her - she was super-responsive and communicative, allowing us great on-site access into the apartment for viewings and tours. Our process was marked by peace despite the fact that we were initially wary to work with a brokerage firm - we didn''t want all the pushy "noise" that you sometimes find in the business. We were thankful for the relaxed pace we received in working with Annie and Sovereign, and were impressed by their move to waive the brokerage fee on our apartment! Overall, we are pleased with our new place and the care that Sovereign took to ensure a smooth transition.

November 2019 by Katie , FLEXIBLE AND RESPONSIVE
Thank you so much for finding my new apartment for me. It’s exactly what I was looking for. The whole process was easy thanks to you. You responded so quickly to all my questions and were very flexible about when I could meet you to see the apartment. It took a lot of the usual stress out of apartment searching. I’m definitely going to recommend you to my friends. Thanks Annie!

November 2019 by Julie A. , SAVED THE DAY
My husband and I had a tremendously positive experience working with Annie to find our new home in NY. We were living in temp. corporate housing and had a very tight timeline in which to find a permanent residence in the difficult housing market of NYC. Coming from California, we were not willing to compromise on space, and Annie helped us find a very large and beautiful two-bed, two-bath, pet-friendly apartment with in-unit washer-dryer in a great neighborhood that met our budget requirements and our timeline. We were about to give up hope when Annie came through for us and saved the day. She also has been very communicative and helpful throughout the entire process. Thank you Annie!
