5-Start Yelp review from Grecia R. on 5/19/18: We were so lucky to have found Michael. He immediately understood what we were looking for and showed us the right apartments. He was always responsive and somehow he made us feel like we were his only clients by giving us so much attention and helping us with every detail. Awesome service!
Here's what Sara P. wrote on Yelp in October 2017: "My husband and I cannot express enough how highly we recommend this company, especially Michael Carr. He worked with us to find exactly what we needed in an apartment, in our budget and in our desired location. He was reachable at all times, never pushed us or hurried us in our decisions and worked incredibly hard to advocate for us with the landlord. In the past, we have gone out of our way to avoid using an agent and Michael has completely given us faith that there are agents out there who not just earn but deserve the fees that they get paid. If you are at all looking to move to the Hudson Heights neighborhood, definitely go with Michael and Greg at Sovereign!"
Mimi T says (on 1/5/18) "I stumbled on Sovereign and their agent Michael Carr by accident. I was being forced out of my apartment by new and unscrupulous landlords and was trying desperately to stay on the Upper West Side. I saw an apartment advertised that was literally around the corner and called the agent, who happened to be Michael. He squeezed me in right away (he was waiting for another client). Loved the apt, but wasn't perfect so kept looking. A few weeks later that apartment looked better and better and was still on the market, so we put in an application. For a silly reason we were turned down and Michael and the principal agent at Sovereign went to bat for me. When the landlord wouldn't budge, Michael promised he would find me something even better. A few days later he convinced me to widen my search to Hudson Heights. Tho my wife and I were reluctant to leave our beloved but absurdly pricey UWS, Michael convinced us to at least look and by offering to show us around the neighborhood personally and sending us a video of a lovely, affordable apartment, we agreed. We eventually chose a different apt in the same wonderful building. He led us through the application process, made sure we did everything correctly and when we again ran up against some reluctance on the part of landlord ( special circumstance), Sovereign advocated for us, we did one additional step, and GOT the apartment. We absolutely love the space (indeed a giant step or two up from the apt we lost), the building, and, our lovely, quiet neighborhood. We owe our current contentment and happy ending to Michael Carr (and Sovereign) who was a dream to work with in every way: available, calming, kind, funny, energetic, and willing to go the extra mile. I couldn't recommend him more highly."
