    "Alex has made us realize he is a true diamond in the rough. He has seamlessly and effortlessly found 2 separate renters for us over the last 2 years, both of which have been ideal tenants. His promptness and responsiveness to whatever situation arises is bar none the best I have experienced in almost any service based industry. Alex represents precisely what great reliable service should be. I can unequivocally offer my highest recommendation for Alex, if only there were anything higher to offer!"

    “I contacted several brokers but ended up working with Alex because of his great attitude. He impressed me with his friendliness, honesty, and excitement. Despite a long exhausting apartment hunt, he never stopped tirelessly working and was always positive. He quickly got a feel for what type of place I was looking for and set up numerous viewings. Sometimes we would spend the better part of a day looking at places in different neighborhoods across Brooklyn. Since I was new to many of these areas, Alex's wealth of knowledge was super valuable. However, what is most impressive about Alex is how much he cares about you. His attentiveness in all the small things makes him an absolute pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great broker.”

    "First and foremost, Alex is a professional who brings something to the table that no other broker I've worked with in NYC has, genuineness. Nothing he brings to the table is fake. Coming from a small town, I needed to work with someone who shares the same attributes yet has true NYC knowledge and experience, so that my expectations can be met - not managed. There's a big difference between the two, and Alex made the division. It showed me he genuinely cared about me, my financial situation, and my living situation. Furthermore, and the main reason why I've referred him to friends, is because with Alex, the job doesn't stop after paperwork is filed - Alex will continue to care and make sure everything is exactly the way it was expected to be."

    “Within two days [of listing] Alex had a new lease for us. When that lease fell through because the new renters, had bad misfortune happen to them, Alex and Brette came up with a new tenant within a week under the same terms. Not only did they help us, they helped the tenant that had the misfortune. We were able to cancel their lease without damages, since they had a new tenant right away and no time was lost. They also did this while we were out of town arranging cleaning repairs and the lease by email and fax as we were traveling. They saved us money and a lot of worry. Amazing service. Thanks Alex and Brette.”

    "Alex is a miracle worker. My husband and I needed to find a rental for a quick move to Brooklyn. We were fortunate enough to find Alex, who helped us achieve our goal of a great new apartment in a mere 1.5 days. But it wasn't without a huge amount of work on his part. He listened well to what we were looking for and then assembled a large number of apartments to view that he thought would meet our needs. He is well organized and efficient. He responds promptly to questions. He is also a pleasure to run with...he knows the city well and was an excellent guide to two newcomers to the area. We couldn't be more happy with the service he provided. He is honest, hard-working, and eager to serve. What more could one want in an agent?"

    “Alex impressed us with his professionalism, knowledge of the market, and responsiveness from the moment we started corresponding prior to our move to New York. He went above and beyond to find us an apartment that fit our budget and our wish list while guiding us through all steps of the process with ease. He is extremely hard working and service oriented with a keen understanding of finding the 'perfect fit' for the customer. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and we recommend him without hesitation.”

    "Alex was recommended to us by a friend, which already spoke volumes about his qualities before we'd even met him. Alex did an amazing job - he quickly understood exactly what we were looking for; organized and guided viewings (any time, day and night, seven days a week, he was available); and we were soon only seeing exactly the type of property we had in mind (and we were very demanding clients). Alex rapidly found us our dream apartment in the West Village, but there were complications - as coming from overseas, we were atypical renters without (at the time of looking to sign the lease) the normal basics such as a US bank account, cell phone or social security number, and even more problematic, there were some particular sensitivities stemming from the landlord's future plans for the building. Alex helped us address and overcome all of these hurdles, and we moved in within a week of seeing the apartment (despite there being competing applicants). Alex was the consummate professional - always organized and available - and on a personal level, was a complete gentleman and an absolute pleasure to work with. We have no hesitation in recommending him."

    "Alex Mahgoub represented us twice as our real estate broker. The first time he helped us rent out our high-end 2-bedroom apartment in Manhattan. We were under a very strict timeline and needed to get the place rented in under 2 weeks so we would qualify for a mortgage on another place. He was able to utilize his network to get our place rented in a really short period of time and for a great price. He was also great to work with because he is really knowledgeable and also has a positive attitude. A few years later we decided to sell that exact place and so we looked to Alex because we had been so pleased with his work previously. Again he did not disappoint. He is extremely hard working and knows how to work with buyers to get them interested. This was a tough sell because, although it was a beautiful 21st story apartment, it seemed dated to some of the new construction that was going up all over Gramercy and Flatiron. But Alex kept showing and meeting with buyers and after a couple of months we had an offer in hand at a great price – in fact it was one of the highest sales in an already high-end building. I would recommend Alex to anyone who wants to sell or rent their place with a hard working, knowledgeable and charming broker. "

    "We interviewed multiple brokers to rent out our apt and Alex was the most professional, knowledgeable and eager. He handled the entire process seamlessly (photos, listing, open house, background checks and renter approval) for us while we were traveling abroad. Alex found the perfect tenants and even offered to be the main point of contact for us and the renter should any issues arise since we live out of town. We highly recommend Alex and would work with him again for all of our NYC housing needs."

    "I was just about to give up on my search for buying an apartment after many failed attempts before I enlisted Alex for his assistance. Other brokers just didn't seem to care as much about my search and were sending me listings without any real thought and just didn't feel customized to what I actually wanted. Alex made me feel like he not only listened but applied everything I told him to his search. Within one week of meeting with him, after months of looking with others, Alex found me the apartment I am very happy to call home now! The experience with Alex was just completely different. He is extremely responsive by e-mail and even after signing contracts Alex was there for me the whole time through out the process since it was my first time. There is no one else I would have wanted to do this with knowing how well he ended up treating me and of course how happy I am with the final result.”
