We worked with Samantha Dong to find our 3 months lease in Chelsea. It was a pleasure hacking contact with Samantha - fast answears and reliable informations - ending up with a nice 1BR.
I can give only recommend working with Samantha.
Samantha was a great broker to deal with. My friends and I were looking for something very specific and on a tight budget and she found us a great apartment. She was very easy to communicate with and willing to show me apartments at times that fit my busy schedule. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a nice reasonably priced apartment in Manhattan.
Intelligent and efficient broker, amazing to work with. Definitely recommend for anyone who's looking for their dream house!
Samantha was fast and efficient and charming, and found a perfect apartment in just one day of visits. The experience was as pleasant and easy as it could be.
Samantha was awesome and went the extra mile for us many times. Helped us move to NYC and made it easy. Found us a great place too. Highly recommend Samantha!
Samntha is a really a nice, agressive and trustable broker. We could not find an appropriate apt by ourself from internet in Taiwan. When I told her what kind of apt and the location, she found for us instantly and contact with us frequently even just via the email. She could answer any question and usually very quickly. Thanks for her help. We really find a good broker and apt.
I can't say enough good things about Samantha ... quick to reply to inquiries and available 24/7! Thank you for your professional assistance, Samantha!
Samantha was extremely helpful in finding an apartment of my desire. She quickly understood exactly what I was looking for and, and searched proactively.
I can only recommend her!
I was so fortuanate in finding Samantha when I moved to New York. I had a very tight deadline in finding an apartment, but found one with her help in a day! All the apartments she listed for viewing were great, as they suited both my budget and area preference. She's a warm hearted person which is very considerate of people's situations when they first come to the city and has solutions to any hurdle you might come across when finding a place. She also recommended a lot of restaurants ( I'm a foodie) and got me familiar with the city which created a friendly bond that I haven't had with other brokers. SO GLAD that I found her, and I would literally recommend her to anyone anytime!
Friendly, polite and very responsive to my late night emails/SMS etc!
A truly lovely broker.
Samantha did a great job with my apartment search. She listened to what I wanted, she accommodated my schedule, and she went out of her way to help answer every question I had!
Samantha is everything you want in a broker: extremely quick to respond, efficient, and organized.
She is also very flexible, ready and willing to take on last minute changes or demands. It was my first time signing an official lease, and Samantha helped me every step of the way; including setting up wifi and ConEd. She will really try to accommodate your every need to make you happy. I highly recommend her.
Samantha was absolutely honest and helpful from the beginning. She had so much patience with us and did all her best in order to get us an apartment and make it all work out. She helped us with things she did not have to, and made sure we were happy and satisfied till the end of the lease. She always had a positive attitude and was never rude or annoyed. She found the perfect apartment for us. It had all we asked for! Great real estate!
Samantha is AMAZING. She worked so hard to find us exactly what we were looking for and went above and beyond in assisting us in getting our paperwork together and it was truly amazing. She takes the extra second to learn about her clients and their needs and it ends up making the process so much more enjoyable. I would work with Samantha again in a heartbeat.
Samantha was very helpful and managed to find me a great place for my summer stay. She is very trutworthy and has been very attentive to every detail of my rental experience. I would definetly recommend her as an agent and am looking forward to working with her again.
If you're looking for a broker who will make your apartment search less stressful and even enjoyable, Samantha is your girl. I heard about Town Residential from a family friend who recommended the firm because of their esteemed reputation. After explaining to Samantha my price limit and the areas in which I was hoping to live, she immediately set to work and found places that met my criteria. It's important to note that I was in touch with a few brokers previous to reaching out to Samantha, and they all told me that my price range was impossible given the Downtown Manhattan neighborhoods in which I was hoping to find an apartment. However, Samantha was only hopeful and by far the most successful in understanding my situation. She found me a beautiful apartment in my dream neighborhood Downtown which just goes to show that her knowledge of New York real estate and her experience really sets her apart. She is a wonderful, funny, brightly-lit foodie (seriously, ask her where she gets her babka...you won't regret it), and I can safely say that I will be in contact with her in the future both as a client and as a friend.
Samantha Dong was a lifesaver! My family lives in Chicago and I needed to find my daughter an apartment in NYC for a summer internship . I was stressed because I was only going to be in town for 2 days. It was a whirlwind two days and I not only ended up with a summer rental for my daughter but Im also far more knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods in Manhattan. That's what you get from Samantha- she is a total professional and gets things done!
