AJ was AMAZING! I reached out to him at the end of December 2018 I believe, and we decided to keep in touch later after I found out that I couldn't end my lease early. Giving him a call again in February was the best decision I made. He is a very trustworthy person, very genuine. He will show you properties that fit your criteria. He will also work incredibly hard to make sure you and the landlord can agree on a deal. As long as I stay in NYC, I will always consider giving AJ a call about any housing ideas I may have. I highly recommend AJ.
I was looking to make the move from living with roommates to getting a studio apartment, and had every intention to rent in Manhattan for proximity to work. On a whim one night, I submitted interest in a unit in Long Island City that looked too good to be true. AJ's wife (they are a team) responded within minutes even though it was late at night, and I set an appointment for that weekend with AJ since he was available. AJ was extremely helpful, professional, and not pushy at all. I have had bad experiences with NYC realtors in the past, and am always skeptical about working with brokers. However, AJ made this whole process so easy! I found a perfect unit in the very first building he took me to. He even helped negotiate 2 months free on my lease for an incredible luxury building. I will definitely be working with AJ again the next time I move, and recommend you do the same.
We found a unit before our appointment with AJ but he was an excellent communicator and very honest with us.
AJ was really great to work with. He was so helpful and super efficient. I had very limited time to find an apartment and he found me the perfect one in my price range (and i love my new apartment!) AJ was available to answer lots of questions even after putting down my deposit and after I had moved in.I would definitely recommend renters to work with AJ!
My roommates and I are feeling so blessed and lucky can find an agent like AJ. He immediately sees our needs and locates our dream apartment. It only took one week to sign the lease. Worked so efficient!
AJ Tchernev and Katrin Tchernev were great! AJ took me on a tour two times, because I wanted to see everything in the area. He was very responsive, highly knowledgeable and worked really hard on my case and approval. He is very familiar with all building managements in LIC which helped me a lot for the approval. Katrin was updating me throughout the process. I highly recommend working with both of them. Thank you guys, you're a great team!
AJ was responsive, professional, showed us quality apartments that were within our specified budget, was not pushy, helped make sure all elements of the application process and approval ran smoothly and was incredibly kind throughout the entire apartment search process. I would highly recommend him if you're searching for an apartment in the city!
AJ is very professional and is great at his job! He really tried to understand what both me & my husband were looking for, our needs, likes and budget. He show us all options very suitable to us, so there was no time wasting. After we picked our apartment, he assisted us all the way till the signing, making sure everything went smoothly. He answered all our questions throughout the process and I couldnât be more grateful to have worked with him, as I can be a handful! We truly canât recommend him enough! If you are serious about finding an apartment and donât want to waste time, AJ is perfect person to help you.
AJ was very professional, straight and knowledgeable of the area. He helped me a lot to find what I was looking for showing me multiple buildings and options. At the end, I was able to choose the best apartment for my budget and I am very happy with the result. I will definitely work with him again.Thanks a lot AJ
AJ is a very professional realtor. He took the time to understand what I was looking for and my budget. He made sure his rental options were aligned to my request. I was able to lock the deal the same day he showed me the place. I will definitely work with him again.Thanks AJ.
A 5 star person - pleasant, honest, good listener and knowledgeable. I would use AJ again without any hesitation.
AJ was super easy to work with and very responsive with our criticism about different properties. I loved working with him as a broker.
I needed to find a new apartment and I didn't have much time to spend looking around (looking for an apartment in NYC is always a bit of a challenge). I worked with Andrian (AJ) Tchernev. AJ showed me around and walked me through many great options within my budget. AJ is extremely knowledgeable about the rental marketplace. In one afternoon, he showed me the perfect apartment which suits my budget and lifestyle. I couldn't be any happier about AJ's professionalism and friendly disposition. Highly recommend working with AJ...an extremely patient and friendly advisor.

Normally I'm not a big review writer but I think Spire deserves one. My wife and I worked with Andrian (AJ) Tchernev to see apartments in Long Island City and he was great. We contacted him early one day and received a prompt response to setup an appointment. We may have spammed him with a thousand questions, each one was met with an attentive response showing no signs of frustration. He was a pleasure to deal with and extremely knowledgeable on the properties that we were being shown. My biggest issue, when dealing with realtors, is that they make you feel as if they are doing you a favor by showing you properties, but AJ made us feel as if he was there for us. I appreciate his dedication.
