"Phyllis gave me excellent advice when it came to choosing and negotiating an apartment rental in NYC. In my experience, I found her to be patient, knowledgeable and very accommodating to my needs throughout the entire process. Her guidance and diligence gave me a sense of comfort from start to finish. Phyllis is extremely professional and personable. She was able to help not only with negotiating the deal but also referred me to movers, a housekeeper, and a dog walker, helping me get settled in my new home and neighborhood. I would recommend her as an agent to anyone with complete confidence and am grateful to have had her help during my moving process." – Erin B.
“Phyllis was our broker for our most recent apartment sale in Tribeca, and she was amazing to work with! People always say you can't get everything you want when you are looking for an apartment in Manhattan, but she was able to find an apartment in the neighborhood we were most interested in, with a beautiful open layout, plenty of space, sunlight and a feel good vibe - precisely what my husband and I were looking for." - Nancy G.
"Phyllis is intuitive, thoughtful, organized and well connected, and she really understood what we were looking for, making the search and rental process quick and painless for us. We couldn't be happier with our new place and can't thank Phyllis enough for helping us make it happen.” – Noren K.
“Finding an apartment in NYC is not an easy task. Having said that, our experience working with Phyllis has made the process not only extremely easy, but also fun! What separates Phyllis from the sea of real estate professionals out there in NYC is that she truly cares about her clients and their happiness - I can guarantee from our personal experience that she will advocate for you on your behalf and ask questions that you might not even have thought about asking. She is always transparent and extremely trustworthy which makes the entire process of finding and buying your dream apartment in NYC so seamless including all the paperwork. Phyllis is responsive, is extremely patient with her clients, and most importantly listens to you and is quick to understand your preference. This has made a world of difference for us since it saves everyone’s time when you are sent and taken to the right types of buildings and neighborhoods. We also loved that she lives in TriBeCa herself and really knows the true ins and outs of the real estate market. Whether you are a buyer, a seller, or just curious about specific neighborhoods/buildings in NYC, Phyllis should be your go-to real estate professional that you just cannot afford to lose!” –Seulki C.
“Put simply, Phyllis was the BEST! She made the entire purchasing process not only easy, but enjoyable; my husband and I couldn't recommend her enough. As first time buyers we were a bit nervous and inexperienced, but she walked us through the entire process (from offer to post-closing and all in between, mortgage included!) and made sure we felt comfortable at each step. Being our unit was being bought from the sponsor, things got a bit complicated, but Phyllis was there to answer each and every question we had along the way. If you're looking for an amazing broker, look no further. We will definitely be lifelong customers!” – Michelle E.
“It is eight months since I moved into my apartment in the financial district and I appreciate the NYC real estate expertise of Phyllis Alario more than ever. New to this market, I initially presented my requirements to Phyllis by telephone and she astutely added to the list. By the day of our apartment tour Phyllis had narrowed the search to ten selections. She was familiar with each of the building’s details, pros and cons, and we were treated with the utmost respect at each visit. What I will never forget is that as we walked to each apartment building on her list, I would ask Phyllis why we were not viewing apartments in the buildings that we passed. She actually provided major negatives for each building we passed over! Within two weeks of our initial phone conversation an ideal apartment was signed. Phyllis also confidently guided me through the formal lease signing and supplied needed practical advice on NYC apartment move-ins and daily living. The entire experience was honest and relaxed. I would never consider a different realtor if needed in the future." - DDM
“A friend had recommended Phyllis Alario to help me find a condo to buy in Manhattan. As soon as I spoke with Phyllis, I loved her sincere and upbeat voice. We arranged to meet immediately, and she did not waste any time explaining what she had for sale that fit what I was looking for. That day I immediately put a deposit down and I am currently living in my new condo, loving life. I strongly recommend getting in touch with Phyllis whether you are buying or selling your home.” – Cynthia B.
“I never met anybody who works as hard as Phyllis! She found me my last 3 apartments and each one was better than the other. She changed the way I feel about real estate brokers and went out of her way to get me the best deal. Since then I have referred a few of my friends to her, and she continues to deliver each time!” – Tom M.
"Phyllis helped my wife and I purchase a new home in East Hampton in 2016. I found Phyllis to be process oriented, detailed, highly professional, but more so an amazingly attentive listener to our goals, and what we wanted in a home. We viewed multiple listings and home magazines prior to seeing homes, so our time was efficient and well spent. In terms of negotiation, Phyllis helped us to get a much better final price on the home, and helped negotiate important extras, like furniture and window treatments, and pre-close fixes in the bathroom and kitchen. Most important to us though, was how she took charge of the process, which had inevitable hiccups and obstacles due to the sellers, and handled all of the important details for us. I highly recommend Phyllis and her team!" - Stephen Stabile
