We’ve been supported so very excellent by Zara Amor during the move of my wife and I! We visited NYC in September, when we were there for a week to explore the various neighbourhoods. Because Zara moved to NYC not too long ago from abroad, we clicked because our stories were comparable and she pretty well had a feeling for our wants and needs.
During the time we were back in NL she kept in touch, and towards the date we were actually flying here she started mailing and texting apartments that indeed matched our needs very well.
What I liked about visiting apartments with her is the fact that she’s honest up front – for example, “I’m showing this so you have a feeling for the cheapest 2br’s in the neighbourhood” or “We’re visiting this one because it has a terrace”. Or even “the next one is a bit weird, but big anyways, I expect it isn’t really for you, but we can take a look anyways”. Nice and transparent.
I also like that Zara takes time for you. She responds quickly to texts and emails, she takes time to chat even if it isn’t about the apartment itself, but about moving or buying furniture or… It feels like she’s committed.
I didn’t feel pressured to make a decision at all. Also after signing Zara remains interested. It often happens that agents drop you like a brick because they are focussing on making money on the next guy.
Long story short, we got a super nice apartment within our budget, we’ve been living there happily for about two months now! Thanks!
