"We recently rented a lovely apartment that was shown to us by Michelle Easterlin. Before we settled on our choice, Michelle was accessible and flexible with our busy schedules to accomodate our viewing of the handful of apartments she had selected for us to see. We were very pleased that she fully understood what we were looking for and didn't waste our time with properties that didn't measure up. She made the process straight forward, always responded in a timely way, and was a true professional. We recommend her highly." - Mr. & Mrs. Winnick
“Michelle is really terrific. She helped my fiancé and I find our current apartment on the Upper West Side. She always took our feedback seriously and showed us apartments that satisfied our needs. Michelle even protected us from a deceitful management company. There is no one else I would turn to for our next apartment. Michelle has us as clients for life!” – Ryan & Jessica
“Michelle worked with me on my search for a new apartment. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the market, as well as the different buildings & neighborhoods I was looking in (significantly more than a seasoned New Yorker such as myself who thought he knew). Her energetic & inviting personality made the process fun, and less “painful” as sometimes buying in New York City can be. Michelle always listened to my needs, and would adapt & filter through listings, so we wasted no time. On top of all of her qualities, I appreciated her approach. I was confident that she always had my best interests at heart, and I could trust her advice & expertise. Michelle knows the system, and will work diligently to help you find the home that fits you best. “- Matthew

She personally took the time to test every feature of the apartment on move-in day with us and was a pleasure to work throughout. We'd highly recommend her!" - Dan & Anita
