Sachiko is an extremely helpful and dedicated real estate professional. I initially got in touch with Sachiko because I answered an ad for an apartment. She then contacted me, asked about my specific situation, and found multiple listings for me that were more suitable than the ad I originally answered. I only had a few days to search for an apartment because I was moving from out of town, so Sachiko worked extra hard to get me in to see listed apartments in a very short timeframe. She then worked quickly and efficiently with me on the approval and lease signing process as I had a tight schedule. Throughout the process, she took initiative and was extremely communicative. She gave me regular updates on the approval process, gave detailed directions about documents that I needed, and made herself available to answer all of my questions. Sachiko is exceptionally competent, helpful, and professional at her job. She shows a lot of patience, is informed, communicates well, and is very pleasant to work with.
I don't typically leave recommendations but Sachiko was extremely helpful when showing the property and getting the lease signed. She was punctual, knowledgeable, and accommodating. If I'm ever looking for another place I hope she's still showing!
If you want someone who will work harder than you in getting you into an apartment than Sachiko is for you. All questions answered in a timely manner and all details listed out for you. That is what you are going to get with Sachiko. She took care of getting my daughter and roommate into a great apartment and we couldn't thank her enough.
Great working with Sachiko from Douglas Elliman real estate! Found a great apartment in just two viewings! Highly recommend
I highly recommend Sachiko as a broker. She helped my brother and I find our second apartment in Manhattan and I couldn't be happier!
Sachiko was great! My roommate and I were moving to NYC on a tight budget and Sachiko was very considerate about our price point. She showed us many different options and worked around my roommates work schedule. We ended up renting through her and she made the lease signing as painless as possible. We highly recommend her!
Sachiko was organized, hard working, and had a great eye for a good apartment. Finding an apartment in New York is no easy matter, but Sachiko made it as easy as possible. Highly recommend.
I was moving to NYC from LA during the peak summer rental months and needed a place within a relatively short period of time. Sachiko noted my needs and scheduled a number of showings with me when I visited NYC during a brief period when i was visiting the city. She showed me some listings that were slightly outside of my geographic preference, and i'm very glad she did, because I ended up loving the unit and signing for it. I'm now glad I didn't restrict myself and that Sachiko was able to understand my needs and help me find the perfect place. Communicating with her was very easy, and overall had a great experience working with her. She made the transition from the west coast very smooth and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a place in New York!
I had such a good experience working with Sachiko finding my place. I was moving to NY from San Francisco. While I was still in SF, Sachiko spent some time with me on the phone, carefully listened to me and figured out my taste and the type of places I was looking for. She lined up some viewing for me the day after I arrived. She showed me so many nice lofts and apartments. I specially had a bad experiment with the units that other agents showed me that I was losing hope but the ones that Sachiko showed me were exceptional. I fell in love with the condo that she showed me and asked her to make an offer for me. She did an amazing job working with the landlord’s agent. My offer was accepted within half an hour. She was communicating with me day and night throughout the whole process of signing the lease. She went out of her way to help me with logistics of moving to a new place, introduced me to nice places in NYC. The whole experience was so smooth. I will highly recommend her and will definitely work with her in future
Believe me when I say that Sachiko is a gem. This review is to help parents, especially for those who don't live in NY and are tasked to help their loved one find a new home in NYC. Do not worry. Sachiko will not only take care of you and your loved one, she will make the entire process pain- and hassle-free.
I live in Hawaii, and son is in his first year of college in NYC. Despite the distance, not having any family or friends in NY, and really not knowing the rental market and what's involved, I was able to work with Sachiko via emails and phone calls to get son an apartment in two days. Two. She really took the time to understand what my son was looking for, his budget, concerns he may have as a student. She listened, made suggestions, and gave advice.
As my son's guarantor, Sachiko explained the entire rental process, warned me that the market in NYC moves extremely quickly, and gave me the heads-up on the documents I needed to provide once son found a place. Sachiko was always proactive so there were no surprises. Not one.
Son found a place on a Saturday, Sachiko called me with the next steps moving forward and what I needed to do. She called the following day as she was finalizing our application. Sachiko made me feel like I was her only client. Son said he felt the same way. By mid-morning Monday, everything was approved.
From the very beginning, Sachiko assured me that she would do her level best and take care of my son. I didn't have to worry. She made sure places my son saw were in safe areas, had convenient transportation, restaurants, and other daily amenities. She always made herself available if I had any questions/concerns. I felt I was right there next to her throughout the entire process.
Son shared that about a week after he had moved in, Sachiko reached out and asked him how he was doing, how he liked the place, if he had any questions. Amazing.
I hope this review puts you at ease. You won't go wrong with Sachiko. Trust me.
Sachiko helped me looking for nice place, and it was really helpful.
She was friendly and responsible.
If I need to looking for another place, I will definitely ask help to sachiko
Sachiko went above and beyond to help my roommate and I find the best apartment within our price range, desired layout and location. She was very responsive and explained every detail throughout the entire process of searching and renting. When viewing a unit, Sachiko is your best friend. She came equipped with a tape measurer and made sure to ask all the necessary questions. And she was on time to every meeting. It was a pleasure working with her!!
Sachiko was super helpful and fast in finding me exactly what I wanted. She followed up and made sure all my needs were met.
I'm super Happy at my new place, alot of it has to do with her great work
I contacted Sachiko about an apartment I was interested. She was in contact with me very promptly. Within a few days we did an apartment tour to look at my options and ultimately I went with my intail choice. Sachiko made it a speedy process. Case in point, I had signed my lease exactly one week from my intail inquiry.
Sachiko responded to emails all hour of the day and night and was very accommodating in meeting with me as much as needed to get the lease done. Furthermore, she took care of most of the paper. The day I moved in I could not find the super to get the key for my place. She contacted management on my behalf to get the key. Furthermore , she checked a few times after to insure everything was going well. Overall, Sachiko was prompt, pleasant, and dedicated to get the job done.
Sachiko was great! She worked with me at all hours of the day to ensure I got the right place for me. She also negotiated on my behalf so I was able to get my dream place at a price I could afford. Additionally, she listened to all of my concerns and worked really hard to find a place that had everything I wanted.
Sachiko is super nice and helpful. She helped me found an apartment I really love and she explain everything that I don't know about. Without her help looking for apartment in NYC is impossible. I am so glad she was my agent, and I can't be happier the apartment she found me in KidsBay.
Searching for an apartment in Manhattan is not a trivial undertaking. It's even more daunting when you're indecisive like i am, and managing multiple significant life transitions as i was when i was trying to find an apartment. Sachiko didn't pressure me into something i couldn't afford or would be uncomfortable with, and she somehow learned what i was looking for more quickly that i did. In negotiating the terms of my lease, she managed what i didn't think would be possible and went out of her way to see to my happiness as if we were old friends, while still maintaining exceptional professionalism. As a client, i know that i was probably more difficult to work with than most clients, but she took several major complications in stride. In the end, i could not have been happier with my experience thanks to her.
Sachiko was incredible. She's so nice and helpful. We found me a place in 2 days when I had already been looking for 2 weeks. Do not pass up the opportunity to work with her!
I worked with Sachiko to find my first "official" NYC apartment after living on subleases. Even though I'd been living in the city for over a year, the rental market was still intimidating - so much paperwork required [especially for me, as a freelance professional], so many brokers hound you the moment you reach out, and often the pictures online don't represent what's truly available. I am honestly SO LUCKY that I came in contact with Sachiko through RentHop. You can tell she cares about her clients genuinely. She really listens to what you want and what your budget is, and will work hard to make sure you find exactly what you're looking for. We saw quite a few apartments and she never put any pressure on me to apply until I found the one I knew I loved.
It put me at ease knowing I had someone watching out for my best interests, and she was so patient in explaining each part of the process. She made what could have easily been an agonizing process so much less stressful and was so much fun to work with.
I'm excited to report I found a great apartment in exactly the location I wanted to be in, that ticked off all the boxes on my list.
I would happily recommend Sachiko to anyone looking for an apartment. You will be in great hands.
Sachiko was friendly and so helpful when it came to finding an apartment for me. She would immediately answer my questions/concerns over text and phone calls. I feel content and happy knowing I have a wonderful apartment to go home to. I highly recommend Sachiko Honda to anyone looking for an apartment.
Sachiko was quick to respond to me during the apartment search process. She really took the time to listen to my preferences and find apartments that were a match! I was able to rent a really nice apartment from her! I will definitely come to her next time and reccomend that others do the same!
Sachiko was great! She responded right away, and was very helpful in guiding my decision for where I wanted to live in NYC. She knew exactly what I wanted, and put in so much time and effort to help us find the perfect place in East Village.
Sachiko was very friendly and took the initiative to greatly help me rent an apartment!
Everything about my experience working with Sachiko was excellent. As soon as I showed interest in an apartment, she called me in order to get a better understanding of everything I was looking for in an apartment. I arrived in New York on a Friday, just hoping to find a place within two-three weeks, and Sachiko found me the perfect place the very next day!!!! Paperwork was submitted promptly, and I was able to move in two days later. I can’t thank her enough!
I met with other brokers this same weekend, and was most impressed by Sachiko not only in her professionalism, but also in her continued friendliness as she checked up on me post-move in. Apartment hunting in New York can be a very daunting process. Sachiko makes it easier. I recommend with enthusiasm!
My experience with Sachiko has been fabulous!
She was listening my requirements since the first minute, and she incredible found what I was looking for!
She is really well organized, always available, and extremely efficient.
At the same time, she provides good feedback and gives you advice about the city. This is specially recommended for all like me, who is not very familiar with NYC
I will strongly recommend her!
I just got relocated to NYC and had to fine an apartment within 2 weeks. Sachiko was a great help to find some nice neighborhood and discover the city. She provided me numerous options until i find the best fit and was always available to answer my enquiries. Also it was very pleasant visiting apartments with her as she is a very friendly and kind person. I'll definitely recommend her if you are looking for someone reliable to help you find your apartment ,)
I had to look for an apartment just two years after my husband and I moved in together – and due to separation I found myself super busy and mentally tired to even start looking, - so I looked for a good broker also because leaving in the upper he said for the last 17 years I learned that the best deals worth the investment, however none of the broker I talk to got me, rather they wasted my time dragging me around and sometimes showing me the same apartment is so with a different broker , it was useless and frustrating until I met Sachiko Honda , Sachiko listened very carefully to what I wanted really pay attention and listen carefully to what I said.,She didnt try to force anything on me, and as we went to different apartment she took every detail of what I said to her attention and save me some irrelevant apartment along the way .As a matter of fact it seemed like she knew the apartment I'd like even before I saw it, but was professional enough not to even assume. – I'm telling you, if you meet this lady you are super lucky !!! Not only she help me to find exactly what I wanted in a great price in the location I wanted- but also she was super professional in the application process and went out of her way more than once a to save stress and time for me end. She was worth every minute and every dollar I paid , I am super happy !!
Sachiko is one of the rare brokers to find, she combines experience with honesty and integrity. She found us very good apartment within our price range and she organized everything very efficiently. She immediately understands what you are looking for and finds the best apartments available in the shortest amount of time. I would recommend her to everyone who is looking to rent in Manhattan.
I rented an apartment that Sachiko was showing in Brooklyn and had a great experience! Interacting with Sachiko was very easy and straightforward. She provided all of the information that I needed to know about the apartment, worked quickly through the application process, and enabled me to sign the lease within only a few days.
The whole process really couldn't have gone much more smoothly. Would highly recommend working with Sachiko and will certainly seek her out in the future if I'm ever in the position where I need to find a new apartment.
Thanks again, Sachiko!
Sachi is a great agent; she continually followed up with me and took the time to really get to know my needs. I highly recommend Sachi for any of your rental/buying needs as she is very reliable.
