My best friend and I were very nervous about searching for a new apartment. Last year, I had a horrible experience with a realtor who overcharged and seemed to get more and more aggravated each time we saw an apartment we didn't like. I got referred to Michael and I knew immediately we had found the right fit. Not only did Michael come prepared with a ton of listings for us, he also made sure we knew everything important about each place – even things that could have been skipped over to make the apartment seem more appealing. In the end, we found an amazing place with everything we wanted and more – and still managed to stay under budget. I would highly recommend Michael as well as Cooper & Cooper for any apartment search. The experience completely changed how I thought about NYC real estate. Thanks, Michael!

"I highly recommend working with Cooper & Cooper. My agent Michael Andrako was fantastic! As a newcomer to NYC, I was overwhelmed by the idea of finding an apartment that would meet my needs. Michael made the process simple--he really listened to what I was looking for and found multiple apartments that exceeded my expectations. I was able to find a home within one day!
On top of that, Michael is a great person who is funny, energetic, and easy to work with. I've already recommended Michael to my friends and would not hesitate to work with him again. Thank you!"

"Michael helped us find our absolute dream apartment, which was well within our price point (being recent law school graduates this is a huge plus). Michael made the paperwork process extremely easy especially considering that we're not living in the city at the time but rather some 200 plus miles away.
We could not have been happier with the services of Cooper & Cooper Real Estate and particularly Michael Andrako, who we are not fortunate enough to call our friend. If you are searching for a reliable, knowledgeable, and personable Agent than look no further than Cooper & Cooper Real Estate and Agent Michael Andrako."

"Michael's effort got us a beautiful apartment in our budget in a time frame that allowed me to move an prepare for starting a new job. Even after our lease was signed Michael reassured my roommate and I that we could still reach out to him if we had any questions or need help when working with the new apartment management orchestrating a move. he had already fulfilled his job and recieved payment, but was still willing to help and support us in any way possible. That is the truly exceptional service we got from Michael that sets him and his firm apart from other in the business. He was truly invested in our happiness and our goal of getting an apartment, and even when his work was done he was still happy to help us however he could."

Michael was so attentive and friendly – it made finding an apartment a great experience!

Michael really made the experience wonderful. He was very professional, organized, and considerate. However, I think what made Michael stand out in this experience is that he was just truly genuine. Michael was personable and always had a great attitude. For walking up as many flights as we did on 90 degree days, we definitely shouldn't have been in such a cheerful mood. I highly recommend Cooper & Cooper's services and we are thankful to have had such a great experience finding our new home. Thanks Michael Andrako!

Our experience with Cooper & Cooper was nothing short of fantastic all thanks to Michael Andrako. My husband and I moved to NYC as the result of a job transfer. We didn't know much about the area and decided to give C&C a shot. It was the best decision we could have made for this cross-country move... Michael took the time to get to know us and understand what was important to the both of us, so he could find a place that met both of our needs, which is not easy when you have a married couple with 2 different sets of wants in a place! It is obvious Michael loves what he does and wants his clients to be happy, so he makes himself accessible and flexible... I would hire him and C&C again in a heartbeat!
