What Our Customers Think

I worked with Michael Carr and I couldn''t have been luckier to find him. Many real estate agents will not give you the time of day unless you are buying. I was a renter, and Michael took the time to spend an afternoon with me, showing me around the area I planned to live in and showing me apartments -- months before I was even ready to rent! And when I moved to NY and was ready to rent, I had only one week to do it in. Although I know Michael has plenty of clients, he was always available for me and found me an apartment in the short window I had to sign a lease. He held my hand through every step of the process, calmed me down, reassured me, made me laugh, and helped me make very difficult decisions. I''m forever indebted to him and I would never recommend any other realtor in NYC! Thank you, Michael!


Kim helped me to rent out my apartment as if it were her own. She was simply amazing! She took good notes of all the people coming to open house and helped me to pick the top candidates. To repaint the walls of my living room, she went to multiple stores to pick the right color. Mine is a co-op apartment with onerous paper work, she helped the tenants to organize the package and guide them through board approval. She''s the best agent I ever met. I would highly recommend her without reservation.

This real estate agency helped my cousin find an apartment last year. The man was very nice and patient with you. My cousin found a place way uptown on the west side near Columbia, where she attends school. Recommended if you''re looking for a place uptown!

Annie made sure that our move in went smoothly, from arranging for delivery of our keys to doing a walk thru with us and our super, to checking in a couple more times to make sure everything was going well and answer any remaining questions. She also gave our fur and human babies special attention! We highly recommend her services to anyone looking to move to Upper Manhattan.

After 11 years away we recently returned to New York City. We had just a few days over Thanksgiving break to re-learn the city, understand changing neighborhoods, and get our bearings on the marketplace. The last place we saw before boarding a plane to LA was the one we selected. How lucky we were that this online listing was connected to Greg and Annie at Sovereign! Having previously lived in small, owner-occupied units in Brooklyn, the vast paperwork associated with renting in a management-company owned multifamily elevator building in Manhattan was completely foreign to us, but Greg and Annie held our hands from afar, keeping in touch via email and text and making sure that everything was clear, in order, and secure. They checked in at various points along the way, which was incredibly reassuring. We are very happy where we landed and highly recommend their services to anyone looking to move to Upper Manhattan.

We were lucky to work with both Annie Hawkins and Greg Healy at Sovereign Associates while seeking an apartment in Inwood. Annie and Greg have years of experience in the area and a great love for it, too. They were incredibly organized and intuitive when suggesting apartments that might be good matches for us. They took their time working with us, and taught us a great deal about Inwood and Hudson Heights on our real estate journey! We highly recommend.


I highly recommend Julio Carrero at Sovereign Associates. I had the best experience with Julio. He was attentive, kind, and easy to work with. He helped me with the whole process from start to finish , and made sure I felt comfortable with everything. Julio found me the perfect apartment that met all my needs. Julio also cares that people love their new home! I high recommend Julio, and very thankful I found him !


I think of Annie Hawkins as the guardian angel of our move to Hudson Heights. We love our apartment, our building, the neighborhood on the edge of the Cloister Gardens. None of these gifts would have come our way without the effective and professional help of our agent Annie Hawkins. Without fuss or hype, she found us exactly what we wanted. Our apt even has a great view. At every step of the way, Annie Hawkins smoothed the way. She clarified the ins and outs of getting our application to rent approved, at every step of the way. She is not only a stellar professional, she is a lovely person. It was fun working with her, and now that we''re living here, I feel grateful to her and I miss her. Her serenity and common sense are bracing.
