10/10 Would definitely recommend Victoria. I moved from a completely different state, was in the city for 5 days and had a lease signed at an apartment I fell in love with before I left. She is very sweet, personable and professional. Moving from out of state, I had so many questions and she answered every single one with ease and ensuring I fully understood everything.I cannot thank you enough, Victoria!
Was pointed to Victoria through a friend when I needed to find a place close to my new job in NYC. Victoria was incredibly kind, walked me through what to expect, and asked a ton of questions to ensure that she would find the right place for me. On the day of touring, she communicated very well, and dynamically altered the schedule to adjust for what I was discovering about myself and the kind of apartment I wanted as we saw places. She found amazing places in neighborhoods I hadn't considered that were even closer to my job than the neighborhoods I had considered and once I had decided on a place, she was incredibly helpful with taking the next steps to secure it. I highly recommend Victoria if you are looking for someone personable and knowledgeable, especially if you aren't 100% sure what kind of apartment or neighborhood you are looking for.
We couldn't recommend Victoria B more! She was personable, proactive and always available. She took the time before we'd even met to explain the ins and outs of the rental process and how to get the best deal. She was immediately invested in helping us find us the best home and by the end felt like looking for an apartment with a friend. Thanks, Victoria!!
We enjoyed working with Victoria so much! She was extremely attentive and responsive to our needs, patient and friendly. Victoria is very professional and has a lot of knowledge about the NY apartment market. She took the time to explain us all we needed to know and answer all of our questions, which was extremely helpful along the way. Victoria is without a doubt the best broker we've worked with! We highly recommend to anyone who is in the search for an apartment on working with her!!
I met Victoria through a friend and from the start she was professional, courteous, and understood what I was looking for. She ended up finding me the most perfect apartment that was right in my budget. The application process was a bit intense and despite some obstacles, Victoria kept her cool and maintained great communication throughout. She gets my highest recommendation and anyone would be lucky to work with her.
Victoria was a pleasure to work with. She understood what I was looking for and was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the process. I felt like I was in good hands from the moment we met.
Really enjoyed working with Victoria Balandeu. I'd emailed her about my search three months before my move date. Nothing was on the market yet for my timeline, but she said she would keep me in mind. I figured I'd never hear from her again, but she reached out about a month later telling me she found the "perfect" place. I was skeptical, and at that point had been to see dozens of places other realtors claimed were "perfect", only to find they were small, drab, windowless cells well above my price rage.Much to my pleasure - Victoria showed me the PERFECT place! It was larger than I expected, perfect neighborhood, all the amenities, and BELOW my budget! I signed the lease ASAP.Not only did Victoria actually LISTEN to what I wanted, and follow up on her promise to keep me in mind, but she went above and beyond during the process. As typically happens, there were a few bumps along the way with our move. Victoria personally went to the unit before move in to make sure that the landlord and super fixed some items that were still not ready, and was on top of everything until the moment we moved in. Really she gave Cadillac treatment. A++++
Victoria Balandeu was a pleasure to work with! We found a great place for a great deal! Victoria was helpful throughout the whole process.
My boyfriend and I loved working with Victoria. She was and still is so responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. We all know how stressful it can be to find and apply for an apartment in NYC but she made the process seamless and and enjoyable.I recommend working with Victoria 100%.
Victoria was incredibly helpful in my apartment search, especially navigating the complicated and stressful process of finding an apartment. She was extremely diligent in finding apartments for me to view and understanding the type of apartment I was looking for. If it had not been for her knowledge and experience of the process, I would probably still be looking for an apartment with only days left on my current lease or would have settled on an apartment I wasn't completely happy with. Even after I applied for an apartment, Victoria continued to look for places I might be interested in applying for as a back up which was an essential plan as my first application was not accepted. I'm happy I listened to her in continuing the search and it shows how much she cares about her clients to make sure they get what they want and don't get screwed over by the process.
Victoria was the most attentive, most organized, and the sweetest agent I worked with in my 3 months of looking for an apartment. She was never pushy, but always offered her thoughts and advice- she even helped me picture how to set up my furniture in any apartment we were looking at. She didn't take me to any apartment that was way over my price point, and was always available to talk via phone, text or email. It's no secret that commission fees can be a bit pricey, but I had zero qualms paying the fee with Victoria- something I could not say about any other broker I worked with.
Victoria is wonderful. Not only was she a delight to be around, but she was also vigilant in helping me on my search. I am not the easiest client--high standards/low budget--but she was patient and reassuring and did find me a great apartment. She didn't push me into any place just to get her check but she did offer great pearls of wisdom to help me feel good about my choice. I hope to not move anytime soon but when I do I will be using her for my next place.
Victoria was such a huge help in my apartment search. Other brokers I met with seemed to just want to show the apartment and move on with their day. But Victoria was so friendly and helpful right off the bat, wondering what I was looking for and if she could be of any further help. I took her up on her offer, and she set up a fun day full of many beautiful apartments that were perfect for me. I found and signed for my apartment the same day! I would definitely recommend her to anybody looking for both a friend and the best apartment-resident matchmaker there is! ?
Victoria is a godsend for anyone seeking a place in NYC. I will recommend her for anyone that I know seeking a place. There are too many praises I can sing for my experience signing an apartment with her so here is a list:-extremely responsive and reachable at any time-genuinely cares about her clients and this is reflected in her going above and beyond to find the right fit-if an apartment gets taken, she is pragmatic and finds something similar that fits your wishes and budget-works well with all parties (e.g. Management firms and clients) to make sure clients can move in at desired time, etc.-she helped me sign an apartment while I was out of the country without even viewing it - she can make anything happen - an excellent problem solver-knows the city and the market inside and outVictoria made finding an apartment much less stressful than it needs to be, I cannot recommend working with her enough. Thank you Victoria!
I e-mailed Victoria to see a studio that was slightly out of my price range. When I went to the appointment I explained to her that I was in desperate need of a new place because the original apartment I was supposed to move into had fallen through. After she showed me the studio she stood with me downstairs for half an hour to looking through her phone for any apartments that fit my criteria. She showed me several places and tried her best to help me any way she could. Victoria is AMAZING and would definitely go above and beyond for her clients. I would recommend her to anyone.
Victoria was very helpful and answered all my questions. She understood what I was looking for and showed me apartments that fit my budget while considering location. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.
Victoria is an excellent and energetic agent! She was willing to invest the time needed to understand our needs and show us some beautiful apartments. Victoria also took the time to teach us (new renters) the facts about being a tenant in NYC, which would otherwise be a bit overwhelming. We can't thank Victoria enough and give her our strongest endorsement - thank you, Victoria!!!
My experience working with Victoria was excellent--she was friendly and professional, and she put a lot of effort into helping me finding an apartment I would be happy with. I would definitely work with her again, and I recommend her highly to anyone looking for a NYC broker.
Victoria was very helpful throughout the entire process. This was my first time renting in the city and she guided me through the whole thing and assuaged all of my concerns. I ended up with an apartment that was just what we were looking for!
Sarah Faith Thompson,
I worked with a couple or different realtors before I met with Victoria. She is the most knowledgable and hard working agent I came across during my apartment hunt. I'm extremely grateful for her dedication and will to find the place that was just right for me. I love her bubbly personality and the ability to really listen to my needs. I would highly recommend her if you want a dedicated person who is there to answer all your questions and guide you in the right direction.
