Ben's customer service and attention to clients are top notch. My fiancé and I had given him a complete list of our criteria, price range, location, etc. and he let us know in advance that we should come with all necessary paperwork just in case we might happen upon our dream place. It's a good thing we came prepared per his instructions, because the first place that he showed us was PERFECT... For anyone looking for apartments in NYC, I would only recommend Cooper & Cooper and I had such an awesome experience working with Ben. He's a great person.

Ben Falchi was my wife's and my real estate agent for the recent purchase of our new apartment. This was the third time that I've been through a real estate transaction (twice as buyer, once as seller), each time with a different real estate broker, and of the three Ben Falchi was easily the best! Ben was always professional, was friendly and pleasant to work with, and helped guide us through many unexpected events throughout the bidding process and even during contract negotiations... I would strongly recommend working with Ben Falchi at Cooper & Cooper for anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

Ben Falchi is by far the best NYC broker I've ever dealt with. He helped us through a lease break recently where we had 11 months left on a two year lease. My wife and I have two young children and found an amazing home outside of the city, which unfortunately meant we had to terminate our lease early to accommodate the move. Given all of the stress associated with moving to a new home (especially outside of the city), the LAST thing we wanted to worry about was a lease break with a big NYC landlord. Thank goodness Ben was there to help. Ben originally showed us our apartment and found us a replacement tenant within two weeks! The breakage was a lot lower than we were anticipating and we are ecstatic to be out of our lease. Ben is incredibly responsive and is very well connected to NYC landlords – relationships that he leverages on behalf of his clients. He is a total star and I would unequivocally recommend him to anyone looking to find an apartment or locate a replacement tenant in the context of a least break. Thanks again Ben!

I had the pleasure of working with Ben at Cooper & Cooper. We set up a phone call to discuss what I was looking for and he asked a lot of questions, took detailed notes and listened carefully. He followed up, was on time for all of our appointments and had plenty to see that met my requirements. He had more information about every place we saw than any other broker I'd met with. Bonus that he's also very personable, interesting and easy to talk to. After wasting time with several other companies, I finally felt like I was getting somewhere in my search. And I did – I'm moving very soon!

Ben Falchi was phenomenal in my apt search. Really listened to my needs and was thoughtful about the listings. Ben was responsive, friendly, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a new place! Thanks Ben and Cooper & Cooper!

Ben Falchi at Cooper & Cooper helped my wife and I find an amazing apartment at a great price. We could not have found a place like this on our own. He was very receptive to our concerns and preferences and stayed in our price range... He lined up 16 apartments in 10 buildings for us to see the course of an afternoon, all of which were better than anything we had seen so far. One of the apartments had a fantastic view of Central Park and hadn't even been listed on the market yet. Ben helped us get the application in and the lease signed. I'd highly recommend anyone looking for an apartment in New York to get in touch with Ben. He'll take care of you and find you a place you love.

I lived in the same NY apartment for years. Loved the neighborhood. Was quite happy. But then, as so it happens here, everything changed in a hurry and I found myself trolling the real estate sites knowing I only had a month or so to find new habitation. High anxiety. Then along came Ben, and I thank my lucky stars. A pleasure to have met and a pleasure to have done business with. I had found it a tiring, dispiriting experience going from apartment to apartment on my own looking for a place, so when Ben came aboard as my guide and sherpa I considered myself extremely fortunate. Ben has a ton of patience, goodwill, wit and charm which happily made trudging from one neighborhood to another not only tolerable but a pleasure. I was very specific in my needs and had only moderate room for compromise, but Ben took it to heart and fulfilled my brief to a tee. Very professional and attentive to nuance and detail. He really found me exactly what I was hoping to find. Very happy with the whole experience. Wholeheartedly recommend Cooper & Cooper and Ben Falchi!

Just found an amazing apartment in our ideal location and price with Ben Falchi. I cannot say enough to express how great it was to work with Ben. His level of competency is beyond what we expected in a broker. He always had our best interest when dealing with landlords, leasing agents, etc. Four thumbs up from two happy renters.
– Josephine A.
Just signed the lease for my first NYC dream apartment today thanks to the unbelievably hard-working Ben Falchi. I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience... On top of Ben's immense talent as a broker, his charming personality and sense of humor was an absolute delight, as well. I highly recommend Ben Falchi and Cooper & Cooper "Couture" Real Estate. Thank you, Ben!!

Where to begin? My boyfriend and I had a lot of specifications for a one bedroom apartment we were looking for in Manhattan. I filled out the form on their website for rentals, and was matched with Ben Falchi right away. From the very beginning I knew it was going to work out. Before Ben, we felt defeated and never thought we would find a place in time that we would love. We had looked at over a dozen apartments with different realtors over the prior couple weeks. We had a tall order, and no one really seemed to "get" us and what we needed, nor did they really take the time to. Like most people in Manhattan, I have a very busy schedule and Ben was more than accommodating... Ben found an array of apartments that hit everything we were looking for. He was very respectful of our budget (and didn't push us to increase it) and he wasn't overly pushy throughout the day, and continued to ask even more questions to understand what we liked and/or didn't like about each apartment... He accomplished what no other realtor could in one day. My boyfriend and I are now living in an amazing apartment that would NEVER have been possible without Ben. I cannot thank him enough for everything he did. He went above and beyond what any realtor has ever done... The realtors at Cooper & Cooper (and especially Ben Falchi) really do care about their clients and don't consider them just another paycheck. Thank you Cooper & Cooper and thank you Ben for all of your hard work!

I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Ben Falchi of Cooper & Cooper Real Estate when apartment hunting in New York City. Ben's patience, knowledge, and professionalism made the process painless, and his comprehensive research ensured that I was able to find an apartment within my budget that fit my specifications. Over two days, Ben showed me a broad cross-section of the apartments within my price range so that I was able to make an informed decision when signing my lease. I highly recommend his services.

My girlfriend and I recently worked with Ben Falchi via Cooper & Cooper Real Estate. I alone was in town for the day, while my girlfriend was out of town. We had a very short time frame and NEEDED to find a place with several specifications, all within a day or two's time frame. Ben was courteous, professional and diligent throughout our interactions with him. Ben acted quickly and got us results well within our specified time frame. Ben also found an apartment that hit every check mark on our list, while being well within our budget. I highly recommend his company and his services for real estate transactions in New York City, especially if you're moving from out of town. I didn't think finding a place would be this smooth, Ben made it that smooth.

Ben Falchi is a stand-up, honest guy. I consider myself very picky. He listened to my situation and worked very quickly to show me apartments that I was comfortable with... I would work with him again in a heartbeat.

My girlfriend and I worked with Ben Falchi to find an apartment in Manhattan in Summer 2017. Because of Ben, the process was streamlined and efficient. Ben initially set up a phone call to discuss the parameters for the apartment search, including neighborhoods, price points, and amenities. His immense knowledge of the Manhattan real estate market ensured that our conversation covered all salient points. Ben made sure to show us only apartments that met our requirements. Over the course of a single afternoon, Ben showed us at least eight apartments, each of which fit the bill. Ben was at all times forthright and candid, and never pressed us into leasing any particular unit. Because of Ben's preparation, we were able to find an excellent apartment in only a few hours. Ben was also incredibly helpful during signing, and thoroughly explained the purpose of each document. Furthermore, he was always timely and responsive. In sum, I could not recommend Ben Falchi more highly. He is a true professional, without whom the apartment search would have been far less productive.
