November 2019 by Alison B. , KIND AND A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH

I''m from the Midwest, and moving to New York was daunting in many ways, but especially when it came to finding an apartment. I''ve lived here for about 10 years and have rented several apartments, and having to find yet another one when I had to move for a new job seemed overwhelming because of my previous negative experiences. I feel so lucky that I found Sovereign to help me navigate the process -- they actually made it very easy. The communication was great, the quality of properties was much higher than other agencies I''ve dealt with (particularly in Brooklyn), and I really appreciated that they were not pressuring me to make snap decisions. Most importantly, I absolutely love the place they found me and they got me an amazing deal. I think I could have looked at dozens of places before I found such a nice apartment for a great price. They are kind and a pleasure to work with -- I can''t recommend them enough.

We live in the UK and our daughter is a sophomore at Columbia. For various reasons we were in a position where we had to secure an apt near to School (Morningside Heights) within her budget with only a week to ge before seater started. After many previous enquires and web trawls, and a mixed bag of various agency responses, we found one on Sovereign and immediately contacted the name - Julio Carrero. Julio was great - always responsive, clear in his explanations for people like us (parents of an international student - we are British), patient with our questions, and courteous. He also always answered his phone quickly - this is a real benefit - and tried hard on our behalf to make sure that everything was right for a single female renting in NYC. Well done Julio, and thanks to Sovereign!

Julio was an amazing help with locating a dream apartment. Within 3 hours of contacting Sovereign (no exaggeration) I had already seen 8+ apartments in my perfect location and price range. Julio gave insightful info into each apartment and helped me work through my indecision to weigh the options. Also a super friendly and funny guy -- would definitely work with him again!
