    Chris was very helpful, responsive and fair in working with me. I would recommend him.
  • Victoria Vasile Zufog Reviewer 20150302
    She was smiling all the time and gave me a lot of good information. I do appreciate what she does for me.

    Victoria is a charming, highly knowledgable and polite broker who knows the Astoria rental market intimately. She took her time out to give some titbits about the neighborhood as I wasn't very familiar with it, showed a couple of great apartments based on my requirements, and was very helpful with the other neighborhood information she provided. I highly recommend her.

    It was an absolute pleasure to work with Chris. When we met Chris, there was an instant vibe, where we were able to express our likes and dislikes of his inventory, and have some casual chit-chat, making it comfortable to work together. We felt no pressure, and did not feel that Chris was like the other realtors we had met with- his end goal was not a commission, but making sure we were happy and looking forward to our future apartment. Chris was helpful and accommodating, down to earth, and social. We almost took another apartment after meeting Chris, but wanted to circle back with Chris to make sure we were not missing out on working with him, and apartments he had access to. We ended up completely forgetting about the apartment we had seen, and continued our search with Chris, until we found our new home. We couldn't be happier with his service, and help! I will recommend him to any and everyone! He cares about his clients!

    Victoria was really wonderful to work with. We met with several real estate agents and did not have a good experience with the large majority. Victoria was absolutely the exception. She listened to everything we said that we wanted, showed us several apartments in a very timely and organized manner. She changed the apartments she showed us as we changed what we were looking for, and even helped us realize some of the things we hadn't thought of. She showed us apartments that she thought we would like, but did not try to push anything on us that she knew we weren't interested in, or that was outside of our parameters. She contacted us to follow up but not too much, just enough really. Victoria was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and most refreshingly genuine and honest. I truly wish we could have gone with Victoria for our apartment as she was by far the most deserving agent we worked with. I will be recommending Victoria to anyone I know looking for an apartment.

    Victoria Vasile showed me an apartment I loved and rented it to me. She made the process seamless and easy. Victoria continues to check in with me even after her part was done. I appreciate how helpful and knowledgeable Victoria has been.

    Victoria was 100% helpful from the first time we contacted her. She found us an amazing apartment in less than 2 weeks ! We were on a tight schede with one of our roommates moving from out of state and got us in our new place right on target. Will not pressure you to go out of your price range and was very knowledgable about the apartment/neighborhood. Would recommend to anyone!

    Victoria made finding an apartment in NYC stress free. She showed me a handful apartments within my preferences and price range and even after kept sending me new listings. After finding an apartment with her she made the application process easy and was always quick to answer my questions. It's hard to find a broker who really does their job and goes above and beyond for their clients, and Victoria is just that. I would use her again and reccomend her to anyone!
