★★★★★ "Working with Michaela is a dream. She understands renters
and landlords, knows how to evaluate the market, and makes the listing
process from start to finish feel easy. I pride myself in my organizational
skills and Michaela was still one step ahead (at least) all of the time. I
highly recommend Michaela. " - Danielle T.
★★★★★ "My experience working with Michaela was an absolute joy—she was incredibly responsive, expedious under the tight moving timeframe I was under, and accommodating to some of the particular challenges I faced in the application process. Michaela found an incredible apartment in our search and successfully aided me in securing the space I would soon call home. As I was transitioning from Brooklyn to Harlem, Michaela’s knowledge and expertise with Upper Manhattan was incredibly beneficial and eased any concern with the quite drastic change in geography. I look forward to the opportunity of working with Michaela in the future and referring her to friends and colleagues also looking for their next home in New York." - Ryan S.

"Michaela is the best, simply put. She is the sweetest and most dedicated person you will ever meet. Being a first time home buyer is so nerve racking, but Michaela was with us every step of the way, answering our questions, helping guide us, and being a true pleasure to work with. Can’t recommend her enough!” — Uju B.
