RIP payphones, fire escapes, radiators, and window-hanging air-conditioners. Oh, and hopefully one-way streets. But don’t mourn too long, because the future is coming! http://ow.ly/LHEtm

"...which defeats the whole purpose of the real estate industry..."

I could not be more pleased with my experience looking for an apartment in Manhattan with Daniel Chun at Elegran. Though I was working with a tight schedule, he was able to line up apartments that were within my preferred location and price range. Daniel coordinated everything ahead of time and was on point; all the apartments that we looked at fit my specifications and were scheduled with maximum efficiency so as to be able to see as much as possible with my limited schedule. In one afternoon, I was able to select a great apartment and had a fun time in the process!

I am grateful to have met Meena Ziabari, she made an excellent job in helping me found a house while I was out of the country. I was told that finding an apartment in NYC was a very difficult and exhausting process but it was really easy and quick to find it thanks to her. She took the time to really listen and understand what I was looking for. I highly recommend her professionalism and knowledge of the market.

Ugonna Onyekwe at Elegran was a pleasure to work with for our office rental search. He helped us find a beautiful penthouse office space very quickly that met all of our criteria: budget, location, size, amenities, and lease terms. Ugonna took time to thoroughly understand our needs and priorities and remained in close touch through our search with updates on new available properties and updates. He was very flexible and understanding of our busy startup schedule. Ugonna's a great overall guy, very friendly and professional. I'd highly recommend him.

Working with Ugonna Onyekwe was really fantastic. I was living in MA when I first started my apartment search so I emailed him about what I was looking for and specified my price range ($2000-$3000) for a studio / 1 BDR. I used to live on the UES but upon moving back, was open to living in different areas of Manhattan. He immediately put together an organized 20 page PDF of listings with large detailed photos, descriptions, and lists of amenities, etc. I was looking for an apartment in a clean, new, well-managed building and one that would have significant amounts of sunlight with granite/marble countertops, lots of closet space and a nice modern kitchen etc . I knew right away that we were on exactly the same page and that he understood what I was looking for. The listings were fantastic - I loved a number of the floor plans and ended up settling on a place proximate to my office in Midtown East. The studio I am in now is much better than the 1 Bedroom apartment I used to be in (in a co-op), although the rent is certainly comparable. The management in the building is wonderful; work orders I submitted through the portal have been attended to within an hour and at the latest, by the next day. The layout of the apartment is impeccable - the apartment is south facing and the huge windows flood the apartment with light. I do a lot of cooking and the closed-off kitchen (vs open kitchen) is a huge plus for a studio. Given the fact that I was juggling graduate school exams and applications during the time of my apartment search, I was relieved to have found someone who narrowed down all the options and filtered out listings to the absolute best ones available prior to me making a trip to Manhattan to view them. Ugonna was remarkably patient, professional, sharp and responsible throughout the process. He was easy to get in touch with, easy to work with, and really on top of things. He knew intuitively whether something would work or not and whenever I brought up a point, he really took the time to listen. I was unable to be in Manhattan to sign my lease and he took charge, conferred with the management office, and had them FedEx Overnight it to my home. The final authorization process for the building was quite convoluted and he was prompt about bringing things to my attention and resolving them. I was grateful for that level of professionalism and excellence. Ugonna was willing to go above and beyond expectations to find an apartment that fit my criteria and that type of dedication is noteworthy. I would highly recommend him for your next purchase, sale, or rental in the city.

I was in contract to sell the apartment I had lived in for nearly 20 years, had not found that "bigger place" I had intended to buy, and had less than 2 weeks to find a rental in NYC. I was furiously searching on-line for "no-fee" apartment buildings, making appointments to see apartments in my price range, and fearing the worst. Enter Daniel Chun: He noticed that I had accessed his company's real estate listings and asked if he could be of any assistance. He accompanied me to look at a studio apartment--it was smaller than my office. There was no way I could fit my "stuff" in that box. Daniel sat me down, asked me what I was looking for in an ideal world, and then told me he would take care of it. He also told me that we should not bother looking at the other apartment he had scheduled to show me (I was slightly shocked when he said that, but more so appreciative!) I walked back to my soon-to-be-sold apartment almost sure I would be knocking on my parents' door with all of my possessions in boxes on the curb. A day or two later, Daniel called to tell me we would be spending Saturday looking at apartments. I was very skeptical--but desperate--so off I went. The first apartment we saw was...perfect! The second apartment we saw was...perfect! The third and fourth apartments he showed me were...perfect! I could not believe my eyes. I could envision myself living in each and every apartment we saw that day! I had been running around for weeks looking at apartments I had personally picked out for myself on-line, only to find that they were nothing like I had expected. In one day, Daniel Chun showed me 4 perfect apartments. How did he manage that? He listened, asked questions, and listened some more, until he understood what I wanted and, more importantly, what I needed in a home. Then he helped me decide which one to actually rent--and thank goodness he did, because I truly had no idea what to do! To say that I highly recommend Daniel Chun is truly an understatement. His expertise in everything real estate related, coupled with his ability, determination, and passion for matching people to places, makes him the only real estate agent I will ever use again. SR

I was in the market for a new apartment rather unexpectedly and was on a tight schedule as well as a fixed budget. As a free lancer in the city, getting an apartment is not exactly easy. I contacted Ugonna Onekwe, after looking at a few apartments with another broker and I really feel like he took my particular situation into account and worked hard to find me the right place. I gave him my specifics and he did all the legwork, contacting me within a few days with appointments lined up to see 4-5 places. Each of the buildings he took me to were exactly the feel I was looking for, and there was a decent range of layouts and views and neighborhoods to choose from. I picked one of the buildings he showed me and he helped me get all the necessary paperwork in order, as well as presenting me with options for dealing with my free lance status as a renter. The whole process was easy and Ugonna really helped me to feel at peace and comfortable during what was feeling like a very stressful time. I have already referred one friend to him and will gladly refer friends when I hear they are in the market for a new place.

Ugonna Onyekwe did a perfect job when he asked in detail which criteria were important for me while searching for an apt. in NY and sending me an excellent 11MB 27 page file of matching apartments with real pictures and all necessary information. Although I had a very good idea of the available options having lived here before, having worked with several other agents and having researched the offerings for months, it was a pleasure to see such a precise overview. When meeting Ugonna, it was also a very pleasant surprise that he is the kind, patient, knowledgeable and honest professional which you hope to meet when you look for a place. He had organized three appointments for the apartments I selected and everything was perfectly organized. If you want to enjoy your apartment search, call Ugonna. I will certainly recommend him to other friends and colleagues.

I highly recommend working with Ugonna Onyekwe! He exudes professionalism, knowledge of the market, and took the time to really listen to and understand what was important to me in a home. He was patient in helping me understand the market and found me exactly what I was looking for AND in my price range. Working with Ugonna made my whole apartment hunting experience, which can usually be daunting, run smoother and less stressful. I'd definitely suggest using a broker, especially Ugonna, to find your place. He gets the job done while maintaining his laid back personality. If I move again I'll 100% seek his help.
