"Sam is professional, energetic and displays a warm, friendly personality. He was terrific to work with, sending frequent informative emails and providing substantive information on apartments and neighborhoods. When I flew into NYC for the day to see prospective apartments, Sam had everything scheduled, and he devoted the entire day to helping me find a home. Sam also followed up with me after I left NYC, which I found helpful and reassuring. I’m so grateful for Sam’s support and expertise!"

We definitely recommend Sam to any family who is looking for a trustworthy, knowledgeable and hardworking agent. Cheers!"
