'Above and beyond' doesn't even begin to cover it! My start date at my law firm was moved up suddenly by a month, I found myself needing to find a place to live while trying to study for the NY Bar Exam. Eric took amazing care of me, despite the fact that I was completely unavailable during my bar study and had only two days available between the bar exam and an international trip... I cannot say enough favorable things about him! His philosophy is that he doesn't just look for apartments, but also looks for homes. He was very candid and definitely took my best interests into account... I am completely in love with my new place and cannot thank Eric enough for being with me every step of the way! I always felt like he was in my corner and was certain that he wouldn't stop working hard until I was happy in my new place. Definitely recommend wholeheartedly!

Thank you for your help with our lease and finding us the perfect home! Definitely simplified an otherwise complicated search!

I can't stress enough how helpful you were in the process and how much I appreciated the personal touch. Look forward to working together in the future.

Eric Brown is amazing! I called him, we met the next day, found an apartment my daughter loves in two hours and he was able to expedite the signing of the lease the very next day! If you are looking for an apartment call him NOW!!! He will not waste your time and he's fun to be with! He is not pushy and really listens to what you are looking for, which was completely opposite of our previous experiences. I am so glad I called Cooper & Cooper and that Eric returned my call!

With Eric's help, Vidhi and I signed our lease today on a great apartment in a great building in Chelsea. Although I am very busy at work, I did not want the day to end without dropping a quick line to let you know how much we enjoyed working with Eric. As someone who works in the service industry, I particularly appreciated Eric's level of service on every level. His competence, responsiveness, attention to detail, commitment, ability to stay on top of things and ahead of the process, no pressure approach, demeanor, having our best interest in mind, and integrity came through every step of the way. Beyond achieving a terrific result for us, Eric made this challenging process a little bit more (read: immeasurably more) manageable for two newbies getting their first apartment in NYC, and that has made all the difference. I know I speak for Vidhi as well when I say that we look forward to opportunities to refer you business of our friends, family, and colleagues and, of course, to work with you and Eric again. Thanks so much!

Cooper & Cooper is wonderful! Eric Brown helped me find my dream apartment on the UWS when I recently relocated from DC to NYC – we really couldn't have found a place that hit more of my criteria, it worked out perfectly. Eric communicated clearly with me leading up to my search, prepared a full itinerary for us to see as many apartments as possible during my short window in which I was in town to find a new place, adjusted as we went along and discovered what was working and what wasn't, and handled all the logistics with great attention to detail. I was changing careers and pulling up stakes after 15 years in DC, so it was a stressful adjustment and I really needed someone to just handle the whole process for me – Eric did exactly that and made it SO much easier for me, and all with a cheerful attitude and a sense of humor. He also stayed in close touch as my move approached and helped me with the last minute questions and issues that inevitably arrive when you're moving to a new apartment and a new city. I can't recommend him and Cooper & Cooper highly enough; I will definitely be using them again next time I relocate!!

We called Cooper & Cooper for help and within an hour Eric was able to provide a stress-free experience... We want to take this opportunity to express our greatest appreciation for Eric's professionalism, knowledge, and patience. He was able to provide us with a plethora of options and was committed to helping us find the right apartment. He was friendly, flexible, and more than accommodating to all of our requests. We can't speak highly enough of him and want to make sure he is recognized for his outstanding work.
