I loved my experience working with Mr. Michael Taylor from Cooper & Cooper. Long story short – he's professional, listens to your opinions, finds apartments that satisfies even the pickiest of apartment hunters, communicative, and negotiates on your behalf! I'm definitely going to recommend him to my friends and keep his information for any future moves... Mr. Taylor was a Miracle Worker.

My husband and I recently worked with Michael Taylor from Cooper & Cooper finding our first apartment in NYC. Neither of us had experienced the apartment search here before and Michael was definitely the kind of broker we needed to help us through the search. He walked us through the entire process and with his knowledge and connections we were able to land the apartment of our dreams! Throughout the process he was attentive, listened to what we were looking for, and stayed in constant contact with us through this stressful time. There is no way we would have found the place we are in without his support and guidance. He was encouraging, positive and never gave up on us. Michael provided us with the best service through each step... I would highly recommend him to anyone that is new to the city or just need an awesome broker!

The overall approach from this firm is excellent and they are in many ways an antidote to the problems with NYC realty firms. Michael himself was well informed, a good listener and a complete gentleman and extremely patient as we searched Manhattan during the hottest few days on record!

Michael Taylor was an absolute pleasure to work with. He possesses an extensive knowledge of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Accompanying me throughout the vast area that is NYC, Michael was able to provide recommendations on neighborhoods that weren't previously on my radar and to make the apartment search both seamless and enjoyable. Had it not been for Michael, I would not have considered a home where I ultimately chose to rent. Michael is efficient, promptly responds to inquiries and is hands-on during the process. If you are looking for an agent that is organized and knowledgeable, I would highly recommend Michael Taylor.

I worked with Michael Taylor to get my current apartment in the Financial District. He was patient and reassuring, he showed me 10+ apartments and I never felt rushed or pressured into making a decision. Michael is extremely professional, very organized, and passionate about his work... He is personable, and quite honestly the most genuine broker I have ever worked with. The search process in itself is hectic and frustrating but working with Michael made me feel comfortable and confident, like I had my own personal cheerleader rooting for me... I absolutely and wholeheartedly recommend Michael Taylor as a broker. He is highly skilled and knowledgeable, he pays attention to detail, and most definitely has the personality to successfully work with any client. Work with him! You'll thank me later. :-)
