What Our Customers Think

The apartment is wonderful! Moving in went very smoothly - my fiance and I are both very happy with our choice! On a side note, Adrivel was incredibly helpful and very sweet. She went above and beyond in a way that the other realtors we encountered during our search did not. We were very pleased to have worked with her.

I also want to thank Adrivel for advocating for us to get this apartment. Through the confusion she kept us well informed about our situation.

Annie Hawkins was my broker for the sale of my Riverdale coop which had a number of unforeseen glitches. She was always ready to do the right thing and get to the bottom of the issue whether it was with another broker, the coop management company or an attorney. She did this diligently, patiently & graciously at all times. She is a most accommodating person - professionally and personally. Truly, Annie will get the job done as she did for me. Annie was also my broker for an apartment rental in Inwood in Oct 2006. I was so impressed with this woman that we enjoyed a friendship for 10 years.

We received a letter recently from an incoming TC Graduate Student:

Hello Gregory,
Three of the TC alumnae - Kim (2014), Tara (2012) and Samantha (2010) all highly recommended that I connect directly with you and they provided me with your name and contact details.

All three alumnae each shared with me their individual experience of working with you during their apartment hunt search and how you were extremely helpful during their apartment hunt and search. They also shared with me that you have listings that are international student friendly

She not only helped me find the perfect apartment, but she made the application and approval process a breeze.

Greg was a great help to me and went above and beyond what your average NYC broker will do. He negotiated pre-move-in repairs with the management company and followed up to ensure the projects were completed and satisfactory. I hate having to use a broker in NYC, but sometimes you just have to. If you have to, I recommend Greg Healy. The review on Zillow can be seen at this link

Hi Greg,

I was hoping to write a quick reference for Jordan. Joe and I could not be more thankful for all the work Jordan did to help us get this apartment. He was extremely flexible with hours which, as you know, was a huge help to Joe with his busy season. Any text or call received an answer right away and we felt really comfortable with him.

He's really a great tribute to your company and we're very appreciative.

Thanks again

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.
