About Us > Testimonials
“Julie was my agent when purchasing a Fifth Avenue co-op and she could not have been better. Her patience throughout the process (including responding to my over 900 emails) was commendable. She has a vast knowledge of the NYC real estate market and was always willing to arrange showings and engage in the difficult negotiations needed to secure the perfect apartment. I highly recommend using her skills for any real estate transaction.”

“It has been a pleasure to work with Marc Alter in finding our lovely new home! Our family was looking for an apartment with three bedrooms in Manhattan. Due to many changes in our personal lives deciding upon what we wanted was more convoluted than we had imagined. Nonetheless, Marc supported us throughout the whole 5 year long process and was incredibly patient and helpful.
Because we lived abroad and travelled to NYC infrequently, a lot of this process was conducted online via email. Marc was always very attentive and available. Not only did he inform us about specific apartments he thought we might be interested in and about their neighborhoods, but he also informed us about New York at large so that we would make informed decisions.
Marc was always knowledgeable about every building we visited and came prepared with detailed sheets that compared different buildings, apartments, locations, and prices. He was key in helping us narrow down our options by offering sincere opinions, yet did not fail to take into account our preferences and to always respect and support our decisions. During the difficult process of placing offers on different buildings, Marc was very prepared to advise us on the current market and on what competitive offers we should make.
It would be an injustice not to mention that Marc is also an expert in all things New York and that he really got us excited to move to this new location. Since we were new in the city, Marc even gave us tours of places he thought we would enjoy and recommended great restaurants and markets for us to check out. We always felt Marc was an incredibly generous and kind with us as clients, but he went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. For these reasons, we would encourage anyone to work with Marc!
With Marc, our family found an ideal three bedroom apartment in the Upper West side that has met our expectations in every way and we are incredibly thankful for everything he did for us.”

“Jeremy Cohen was absolutely integral to the sale of our co-op on the Upper West Side. From the beginning, he handled everything with speed and precision. He met with us first to discuss our priorities, then explained the details of the sales process. We were immediately put at ease, and he was in constant contact with us from start to finish.
Jeremy quickly had our apartment photographed and listed, and only four days later he held our first open house. Nearly 20 interested parties visited, and the next morning we had four offers on the apartment. I believe Jeremy priced our unit perfectly, leading to an incredible amount of interest. This led to a bidding war, and we ended up with an offer that was considerably above our asking price.
I couldn’t be happier with the way Jeremy handled it all, and I never felt any stress. I highly recommend his service!”

“Millie is an absolute pleasure to work with and is exceptional at her job. Having been introduced to her via my employer back in February 2016, it was obvious from the start that Millie was in control, extremely organised, understood my requirements and delivered what was asked for exactly how it was supposed to be. Nothing was ever too much to ask and viewings were available almost as soon as our phone calls ended or after I clicked the Send button. For me, being organised, timely, efficient and reliable is extremely important and Millie represents this and much more.
Her personality is very inviting, friendly, she has a lot of energy and she cares not just about what she does but how it affects her client. On numerous occasions during our viewings, Millie would never hesitate to contact the office on the spot to have questions answered and this always left me in a better place.
Millie removed the stress during the process and often follows up to ensure that everything is good, that I am in a good place and hassle free.
You cannot go wrong with Millie. She will bring a whole new meaning to apartment hunting and you will thank yourself for doing so.”

“Marc did an amazing job during our search to purchase an apartment in a family-friendly building on the Upper East Side. He was great with communication, educating us on the process, negotiating a fair price and was a true partner each step of the way until we closed.
After a few years of living in the unit, we decided to move and had Marc rent out the apartment. Once again, he was extremely professional and efficient, finding a great, qualified tenant in a short period of time, who has been a pleasure to deal with. I can’t thank Marc enough for all of the help and advice he’s provided – we’re thinking about selling in the next two years and planning to have him handle the sale as well.”
“I was very happy using Julie to rent my investment properties and also sell my condo recently on the Upper East Side. I found that she was professional, honest and result-driven and would highly recommend her to anyone else.”

“We worked with Jeremy Cohen from Level Group and really can’t recommend him more highly. From start to finish, he was highly communicative, available, and made us feel like a priority no matter what day of the week it was.
Jeremy took all of our requirements and put together an aggressive tour of downtown, showing us over 10 apartments in several neighborhoods ranging in price and amenities. He confirmed every appointment, and even had bottles of water for us since it was a hot day!
After seeing the last apartment, he helped us talk through each listing and truly understand what our options were. Jeremy was completely supportive of us no matter what, and seemed to genuinely want us to make the right choice for US. That’s a professional.”
– Rebecca L. and Justin B.
“Julie at the Level Group recently helped sell my Co-Op Apartment, 7 years after Julie had helped me purchase the apartment originally. Julie is incredibly knowledgeable, organized and responsive. She laid out a great strategy for showing the apartment and driving interest. Her plan resulted in multiple offers. Julie was an expert negotiator navigating those offers and got us a great price and a successful closing. I couldn’t be happier with the level of service.”

“Finding a new apartment is hard. It’s stressful. It’s overwhelming. It’s scary. Thank god for Jeremy Cohen.
Jeremy treated me with tremendous professional courtesy. He was thoughtful, he planned ahead, he presented me with a lot of options, he was friendly to everyone he saw, and he was patient. We looked at a lot of apartments. He never broke his stride.
Jeremy is the definition of a people-person — He cares for the people he’s around, and he wants them to feel good, safe and secure while finding a new home. Home is important to him and he brought that caring to his work with me. Ask him to help you find your next home and you definitely won’t be sorry.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Julie in my search for an apartment in Manhattan. Although Julie identified a number of great apartments, it took me a while to come to terms with the crazy NYC real estate market. In retrospect, I should have jumped on several apartments she showed me in the early going, but Julie never lost patience and was extremely thoughtful about what I was looking for.
At my request, we looked in several neighborhoods over the course of my search and Julie was very knowledgeable about all of them. She was great about talking me through the pros and cons of each apartment and was never pushy or ever gave me reason to believe that she had anything other than my best interest in mind.
Once I found apartments I wanted to move forward with, she was excellent in communicating with the seller’s broker and engaging them to get as much useful information as possible to make an informed offer. When my offer was accepted, she was very helpful in working through the negotiations to get into contract and she shouldered the burden of putting together my board package, making the process as easy as possible for me.
The quality of the broker community in NYC is very hit or miss and it’s a game of chance as to what level of service you’re going to get, but with Julie, I was fortunate enough to work with someone who is honest, smart, persistent, patient and thoughtful. I would definitely work with her again and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell their apartment.”
