We had a great experience with Zach Zachariadis - he was outstanding. Our move was complex because we were moving from another country and Zach helped us every step of the way. Very responsive and professional - I would highly recommend him More...

Zach Zachariadis was our broker during the summer of 2019, and trusting him is one of the best decisions I have ever made. It was only because of Zach's strategic intuition & unrelenting resourcefulness that we ended up with an incredibly ideal home situation, and one that we could comfortably afford. Zach over delivers: dollars on the penny every single time. Not only is he throughly appraised about the local markets he work in, he is also very sensitive to individual preferences - leveraging the former to serve the latter; Zach is one phenomenal partner to work with. Most importantly: for someone so incredibly accomplished - Zach is incredibly humble & self-effacing; never ceasing to consider how he may better serve the burden of another. Working in advertising, an occupational hazard is that I have an uncanny sense of when someone is selling something to me. That sense has gone off a lot this summer, while walking around with realtors. Surprise surprise: it did not go off once with Zach. Our city is filled with a preponderance of brokers who behave as hawkers & vendors; willing to say anything to close a deal. And then you have Zach: a partner, a friend & an advisor. Zach, you are the best. More...

Zach was great at helping me and my roommate secure our first apartment! He lead us through the process, which was completely foreign to us, with simplicity and ease. My roommate and I both live out of town, and Zach did everything he could to accommodate us and our guarantors. The only hiccup came with a miscommunication regarding picking up our keys. But even then, Zach and his partner Alex took all responsibility and made sure we got into our apartment that day.I can't gush enough about these guys. They made a daunting apartment search easy and comfortable. I would absolutely recommend Zach to anyone looking for their first apartment! More...

I have worked with a number of brokers in New York and Zach Zachariadis has by far been the absolute best. He was completely patient, honest, transparent, available, and accommodating throughout the entire process. He made the extremely stressful process of moving in NYC a good experience, something I didn't think was possible. I cannot recommend working with Zach enough! More...

In the world of New York realty, the rental process is a nightmare. The market is saturated with many brokers who offer very little, provide misinformation or dishonest information, and yet expect a massive payout of 10-15% of the annual rent. This promotes a lot of distrust among renters, and real estate brokers. "I don't want to pay a broker fee!" is a commonly heard phrase.My experience with Tatiana was almost entirely the opposite. From the beginning, she was clear and transparent in only showing no-fee properties, just like I asked. She had the rare ability to actually stick to my preferences - 1 bedroom, $2500 budget, new construction, new amenities - and find realistic options. The best of these was Hallett's Point in Astoria, which completely floored me not only for its appearance, but by how closely it matched exactly what I wanted, and for how refreshing it was to find a broker who was honest about what was being offered.She even rearranged her time with the babysitter to show me the listing!If you are looking for excellent customer service, someone who knows the market, and someone who will advocate for you as a renter, including how to ask for a lower rent than advertised, I would highly suggest working with Tatiana. The experience is one that you will not regret! More...

Tired of the salesy and the no sense of humor kind of folk Say no more. Modern Spaces is full of agents with personality and will cater to your requests and needs. I worked personally with Jeffrey and Ingrid on finding a 1 bedroom apartment under 2800 with all the amenities - Jeffrey was in touch with me daily for weeks sending options and educating me. He showed up to the tour on time and Ingrid was so kind and knowledgeable about the area and the complex. Ive dealt with many realtors in this lengthy search and no one compares to Modern Spaces and their great attitude and punctuality and constant communication. More...

I had a great experience working with Zach Zachariadis to secure an apartment in NYC. Zach immediately responded when I first reached out and was very easy to communicate with throughout the entire process. I appreciated Zach's honesty and did not feel pressured at all in deciding to secure a place. I have since moved into the apartment, and I am very satisfied with how it all worked out! More...

Jemery Ruiz is the epitome of being helpful, gracious, patient, and understanding. Moving from a different state to NYC was already a huge headache since one usually don't start looking for an apartment to lease until the month before move in. However, after seeing an apartment that suited all my needs, Jeremy was timely and helped me every step of the way. He was very patient and never made it seem like my a million questions were bothersome. Even after two weeks of signing the lease, Jeremy went above and beyond all my expectations by giving me a call to ask me how everything was going. I could not ask for a better experience. He is truly the best. More...

I am absolutely ecstatic with my new apartment. Jeremy was an absolute godsend! He made the process extremely smooth and quick! Me and my fiance were looking for an apartment for some time. We soon came across Jeremy, we told him what we were looking for. Not only did he find us what we were looking for, but he found us an apartment that exceeded our expectations. He listens well, and has a gift for finding people not just a place to live, he finds you a home. Me and my fiance are eternally grateful. The location is going to be a beautiful place to raise our daughter. Trust me when I tell you, anyone who uses Jeremy is in excellent hands! Thank you again Jeremy! More...

My renting and condo board approval experience was smooth and swift thank to Carlos Simoes. All of my questions were answered quickly by Carlos, which greatly put my mind at ease. Carlos is knowledgeable of the LIC area and general market. He showed extra attention to detail during initial walkthroughs of the space, organizing documentation, and by checking in on the condition of the space leading up to the move-in. I highly recommend Carlos and his team at Modern Spaces. More...

There are not enough words to explain how much I appreciate Carlos Simoes. I manage several apartments in the LIC area and have been working with Carlos for almost 2 years now. Not only is he one of the kindest people I know, he is also incredibly diligent. He has helped me seek out investments, follow up on lease renewals (without being prompted), and has been a constant source of real-estate advice/information. If you are looking for a realtor that is detail-oriented and super responsive (without the over-bearing aggressive attitude) please consider reaching out to Carlos. More...

I have been looking for a house for quite some time. Buying a house is very stressful and having a good caring diligent agent is key. Not everyone gets that experience. Alex is one of the most patient, kind and understanding real estate agent we have ever encountered! He showed us dozens of homes and was always eager to accommodate our busy schedules. Ultimately Alex found us our perfect dream home! Alex is very knowledgeable, full of great ideas, and an expert in his field!!! I would highly recommend Alex Giannikas to anyone interested in buying or selling a home :) More...

I have had a number of dealings with Modern spaces as a landlord, and with a number of their agents. I have used them to fill both commercial and residential vacancies. My personal experience has been fantastic. I have gotten some wonderful tenants and they know how to close deals. The agents I have dealt with were inventive and came up with unique solutions that worked for both myself and the tenants. Some of the agents have even become personal friends of mine. In doing deals with people you learn about how they operate.  The tenants presented to me have always met my preset criteria and modern spaces has saved me many many hours of sifting through potential tenants. As a landlord I often refer other landlords to modern spaces and always get a huge thank you! I would refer them to anyone with absolute confidence. Both their Commercial and Residential team are top notch.   Thank you Modern Spaces for all the help!! More...

For both transactions he was dedicated, diligent, informative and really just went above and beyond. What I especially loved about Zach is that he’s a good, trustworthy person.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Zach Zachariadis recently to find a new apartment. We were in a very stressful situation because we had adopted a puppy that our current apartment wouldn’t let us keep. We had a short time frame to find a place for us and our puppy and Zach accepted the challenge. He genuinely listened to what we needed and our feedback on each apartment. He was extremely responsive, flexible with our availability for appointments, and kept us updated throughout the process. I’m sure he was busy with other clients, but it never felt that way. He gave us a lot of information about each apartment, the neighborhoods, and was helpful with recommending how each place could work for us, i.e. furniture layout, transportation, etc. The service he provided went above and beyond our expectations and we can’t thank him enough for finding us a place that would work for our family—and in only 2 weeks! If you are looking to move in or around Queens, make your life easier and call Zach! More...

I can truly say I got beyond lucky by working with Zach Zachariadis. He was the most patient, and understanding realtor when it came to looking for my first apartment in Astoria. Understand, that I had absolutely no knowledge on apartment hunting or any of the ups and downs that came with searching for the "perfect" first apartment. Zach was incredible, he stuck through all my changes, (with a really big smile that is) and guided me through months of searching. Rain or shine, showings were done. He made sure that I was acquainted with the neighborhood and pointed out every possible nail place, (which is truly important for any girl moving far from home!!) Zach was never pushy or antsy and I couldn't be happier to have had him as my broker. If you're looking to find your perfect home, ZACH IS EXCEPTIONAL! More...

I just bought my first home and Steve could not have been more helpful, supportive, and patient as I learned all the ins and outs of purchasing a new place.

Given his expansive client base, we were able to rent the apartment quickly and at a competitive rate. When we recently decided to sell that same apartment, naturally Steve was the person we went back to. He has his finger on the pulse in terms of market value, did an excellent job explaining to buyers why our apartment was worth the asking price, and secured a competitive offer in only 2 weeks. We highly recommend Steve Lelekidis and plan to use him again in the future, if the opportunity arises. More...

He was completely upfront and honest with everything. The video walk throughs were so helpful! With Zach’s help I was able to find an amazing apartment that was completely inline with my expectations and budget. Zach’s friendly, honest and patient approach made him so easy and fun to work with! More...

The first time I walked into Modern Spaces, I was greeted by Chris Winslow and I told him the kind of an apartment I wanted, the price range and the neighborhood. That same day he showed me the apartment that I was dreaming about, he was able to instantly understand what I liked and needed from an apartment. Chris was very professional, friendly, and extremely responsive; he made the entire process so much easier and less stressful for me. He was always in communication and I never had to follow up as he was always one step ahead. I had a great positive experience working with Chris and Modern Spaces, and I would definitely work with them again when the opportunity comes. More...

Finding an apartment in NYC, even as someone who has grown up in the city, is no small feat. After looking for some time for a place without using a broker, my roommate and I realized that our options and chances would be greatly improved by using one. We were lucky enough to end up with an amazing broker!We must have gone to and contacted 8 or 10 different real estate places before I stumbled upon a listing by Zach Zachariadis. I was very impressed with the walking video tour of the apartment provided on the Modern Spaces site. Unlike every other listing I had seen thus far, it gave a very accurate representation of what the apartment looked and felt like. Prior to this, my roommate and I had wasted tons of time seeing apartments whose photos were seemingly intentionally misleading.Zach stuck with us until we found a great place. He was never pushy, and went out of his way to stay promptly available to us during our search. He went way, way above and beyond what I'd expected from a broker, and we truly knew he was on our side from the get-go. We went through a rough time with one of the landlords, but Zach went to bat for us and found us a place that ended up being much better.I honestly believe you won't find a more friendly and hard-working broker than Zach. Give him a shot. More...

I heard mixed things about how easy it would be to find an apartment in NYC. Being that it was my first time apartment hunting in the city, Modern Spaces stood out to me as a search engine because their listings seemed exceedingly more quality than other popular sites like StreetEasy and Zillow. My broker Zach Zachariadis helped my roommate and I find a few listings that we liked. He was the first broker that was extremely professional, followed through and followed up with us on a regular basis, and finally made good on his promise to help us land an apartment that we both love! We definitely hit some bumps along the way when it came to shady landlords, but Zach was dedicated and helped us push passed those unfortunate events. We are very greatful for Zach and modern spaces for helping us find an apartment so close to the end of the month. Thank you for your hard work, professionalism and dedication. Two thumbs up!

Let's face it, no one really likes the stress of looking for a new apartment, especially in NYC. Zach, however, turned my apartment hunt into an extremely enjoyable experience. Zach is professional, knowledgable, efficient, reliable and very communicative. He went above and beyond to make sure that I was happy with my new place, and that I had all the information I needed to feel comfortable signing the lease. He was also very patient and I appreciated the time he took to help.I couldn't recommend Zach more highly! More...

The thought of beginning the search for an apartment in New York City was quite intimidating. Well, in steps Zach with his professionalism, enthusiasm, and knowledge. He was so wonderful in the whole process of finding our apartment. From having the video walk through available that I could share with my family and friends across the country to walking us through all the details of signing of a lease, he went above and beyond. He answered all of our many questions, offered professional advice and was always so quick to respond. It really felt like he was on our team. With confidence and gratitude, I highly recommend Zach!!! More...

The only catch was one of our guarantors was overseas while the whole process of paperwork was going on, but he worked with us and made the process so seamless and stress-free. We were able to have a bit of flexibility with when certain forms were needed and he was able to accommodate all of it. I would highly recommend Modern Spaces, and Zach's services to anyone. More...

Zach Zachariadis with Modern Spaces helped me get the perfect apartment.

Once I saw it and knew it was what I wanted, he was very helpful in letting me know exactly what had to happen next and exactly what paperwork was needed from me and my guarantor. With his help my application was approved quickly and I was able to sign the lease within a week of first seeing the apartment. Zach was friendly, always responded quickly when I had questions and he definitely reduced the stress of the apartment search process!!! 10/10 recommend! More...

Moving to The Big Apple is stressful, but especially so when moving back to the US after eight years abroad. Having never lived in New York, but knowing which area I wanted, I reached out to a few brokers to set up appointments. Heath shamed the rest of the bunch from the word "GO"! After listening to my (fairly specific) requirements, he put together a comprehensive two-day plan to cover all of Long Island City. As we pounded the pavement, he gave me a great outline of availability, geography--the real ins-and-outs of the area. It was the best crash course in the neighborhood I could've asked for! By the end of the second day, I had put in an offer on a beautiful place. Because Heath made sure I knew exactly what to expect and what paperwork to bring, the experience was flawless. Two days later, we were approved. One month on, and we've made the Big Move from London to Long Island City and couldn't be happier in our new building. Don't expect a buttoned-up suit-type broker. If you don't like to laugh and have fun, while apartment hunting, then this isn't your guy. Heath has a true love for Long Island City, and he'll help you love it, too. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or a nicer person! More...

He was quick to respond to messages and phone calls! You can definitely count on Jeremy for being someone who is reliable, quick, and most importantly professional. Modern Spaces is Lucky to have Jeremy!! More...

Zach Zachariadis of Modern Spaces, Astoria, NY, is an exceptional real estate sales agent who worked professional magic to help us get the perfect apartment within our budget, with our commuting, space and lifestyle needs. His genuine, warm, friendly and most importantly, honest way of helping people to find homes is rare. From our first apartment go-see, to the last, Zach made us feel as though we were part of his family and that he was looking out for us as a caring brother or cousin would, describing each option honestly, and asking us the right questions. He astutely used our answers to assess which of ours needs were the priority for our dream apartment and read our body language and non verbal communication with amazing accuracy, which helped us save time when we did not exactly love what we saw in an option. He is a master of hospitality and made us feel cared for every step of the way, driving us around neighborhoods, giving us the scoop on dining, history and culture which few agents ever offer to the standard that he did. Having experienced working with realtors in both the US, specially in the Upper East Side rental market and in international locations, I can confidently say that Mr. Zach Zachariadis stands out as an extremely skilled, caring, honest professional and efficient real estate sales agent who puts his clients (renters) and their happiness first as they search for a home that is right for them. Bravo Zach! I encourage everyone who appreciates these traits to seek him out. He makes what can be an anxiety filled and painful apartment hunting process, extremely fun - because that's who he is, naturally! You can count on him being honest, transparent, dependable, efficient, professional and forthright every step of the way, and then you get a wonderful place to call home at the end of the experience! We were so lucky to find him! Thank you Zach! Modern Spaces you are indeed fortunate to have a real estate sales agent like Mr. Zach Zachariadis in your ranks! More...

We searched for an apartment for 4 months and Jeremy Ruiz of Modern Spaces showed us the best apartment. We have been living there for a month now and we couldn't be happier. Jeremy was really refreshing after dealing with dozens of other brokers/agents. He was professional and friendly and I mean that sincerely. i.e. he made no comments about what we should or shouldn't accept, didn't ask us to lower our standards and he never had an attitude problem. He answered all of our questions or reached out to other people for us. The lease signing was actually pleasant and for the first time ever, we did not feel coerced into anything. We have had the worst apartment search this summer and Jeremy was the only one who remained professional and did not make it personal. He did his job and he is a true professional. Thank you Jeremy!

We cannot thank Kayla enough for the recent sale of our Hunters Point condo.

Once we gave the green light to list, Kayla quickly put the wheels into motion, securing the best photographer & fielding the numerous calls from potential buyers. We had a record breaking open house weekend that yielded several offers from qualified buyers. All during the process, she kept us in the loop in order to close the deal quickly and was always available to communicate via phone/email.

Our first real estate transaction was made significantly easier due to Minas' professionalism and local knowledge. He actually represented the seller on the home we purchased, but he had such a good understanding of the neighborhood and what we were looking for with regard to the rental market that we hired him to rent out the units after we closed on the house. Minas went above and beyond what was asked of him, and as a result of his hard-work and thorough rental-application process, he hooked us up with the most amazing tenants. From the closing, to showing the apartments, to the applicant screening, to the eventual signing of leases, he held everyone's hand the entire way through. What could be a very troublesome and expensive experience was made painless by Minas at Modern Spaces in Astoria. Highly recommended! More...

And even when my roommate was running late to the viewing, they were nice enough to wait and give her the same tour. They even checked in with us when they were out of town for work.

I had the pleasure of working with Minas when searching for a new apartment in Astoria and with his help, secured a lease on a fantastic one bedroom for a great price! I'd highly recommend him to anyone and will definitely be referring him to my friends. As many will know, searching for an apartment in New York city is quite the task. Using websites such as Street Easy, I quickly learned you never know if what you see is actually what you'll get. After weeks of searching and having no luck, by chance I met Minas when reaching out on a listing. The first thing I appreciated about Minas is how quickly he emailed a response to my request to schedule a time for a viewing. Using Street Easy, I began to get annoyed at the amount of brokers who would lazily respond with one liners  such as "Call me at XXX-XXX-XXXX". Minas on the other hand went above an beyond the crowd. He promptly emailed back to schedule a viewing as well asked additional questions so he could tailor to my needs. When we met for are scheduled viewing, Minas not only showed me the unit that I originally contacted him about but also additional units that fit my budget and needs. The one I ended up signing the lease on I actually never saw online! As far as New York Real Estate Brokers go, I have nothing but great things to say about Minas. When viewing the units, he wasn't pushy as other brokers had been. He sat back and allowed myself and my girlfriend to look at the units and explore freely. He was easy to talk to and happily answered all of our questions and listened to our concerns. My highest praise of Minas was his honesty and integrity. When asking questions that most brokers would dart around or try to avoid, Minas answered with transparency and honesty. He really has your best interests in mind. He even made the application process a breeze and got me on a lease in less than a few days. If you're in the market looking for a new apartment, forego the stress and team up with a broker that puts your best interests first. Minas is the broker to call! Five stars across the board.

My boyfriend & I are ready to leave Manhattan for more space. I was intrigued by Modern Spaces through the great reviews here and I'm glad I listened to them. I saw a listing i loved on StreetEasy listed by Minas; when contacted about it he asked me for other details of what I'm looking for and lined up 4 apartments to see. I honestly told him one was too far from the train and he never pushed it, just knocked it down to 3 apartments. Minas was a sweetheart; we are both originally from queens so it was nice to chat about that and get a real feel for how genuine a guy he is, not common in the realty world. We fell in love with an apartment we saw and he was quick to make sure things got going. Happy to say we signed the lease yesterday after a painless experience. Would highly recommend Minas; he's lived in Astoria his whole life and knows the neighborhood very well. No bait & switch here, just a great agent! More...

We walked into Modern Spaces and were immediately met by Mary Beth. We were looking for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo somewhere in New York City and were not familiar with Long Island City. Mary Beth was incredible from day 1. She took the time to not only show us apartments but also took the time to show us the neighborhood and gave us advice on where we should go for good food ! We met with her over 4 weekends in a row. Mary Beth was honest and not afraid to point out the pros and cons of every apartment. Additionally, she was respectful of our budget and attentive to our needs. Four months later we are now the proud owners of a new condo in Long Island City ! We would definitely recommend Mary Beth at Modern Spaces and would love to work with her again in the future ! More...

My boyfriend and I were in the market for our first apartment together. We had a few specific needs, and I came across a nice listing on Streeteasy. The listing led me to Eli, a Modern Spaces broker in Astoria who showed me the apartment and got the ball rolling with the application process.  He helped make the process of finding and procuring the apartment my boyfriend and I wanted as easy and as painless as possible. I don't think I've ever had such an easy time finding a new place to live! If you're looking to live in Astoria, I highly recommend looking up Eli! More...

Just when I wanted to give up and take our apartment off of the market, Mary reminded me of the end goal at the end of the process and when all is said and done I can’t thank her enough. I have never been a fan of the idea of a broker but I have been proven wrong after working with Mary Torres. She is no nonsense and very honest about the market and what’s possible but Mary’s committed to her clients, she works all hours to make it happen, continually giving solutions and options and she doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. I am really grateful that Mary was able to close the deal and now we are living in our dream apartment overlooking NYC. Thanks Mary!! More...

My girlfriend and I found a great apartment in Astoria through Harris at Modern Spaces (we were referred by a friend). He was extremely helpful with our unusual move in date request and talked through all of our questions and concerns patiently. Will update after we've lived there for a bit. 10/10 would use Modern Spaces again! More...

Had a great experience with Modern Spaces in Astoria (the one on 30th ave).  Worked with Georgios Anagnostopoulos, who found us a place quickly despite our request for an uncommon floor plan during the busiest month of the season.  He was very accommodating of our work schedules and put in a lot of time viewing places with us.  He knows the area well and is a pleasure to work with.  We are very happy with the apartment that George was able to deliver for us.  Thanks!

I just moved from California to New York and met with a dozen of realtors. Nobody does the job better than Calvin Yan and Christina de Curtis. I contacted Calvin and he showed me 4 apartments in less than one hour. When other realtors were telling me that what I was looking didn't exist in the market, he had exclusive connections with local owners that made possible to find the right place. I was undecided and he was pro-active contacting me two days later telling me he was able to negotiate a small price reduction. After a second view I decided to take it. Since these were privately-own apartments the owners conducted a deep review to secure they were getting the right tenant. Then Christina led the efforts to secure a good deal for both sides and answer my questions even after signing the deal. Their broker fee is slightly higher than the rest of Queens, but still lower than Manhattan. But their exclusive listing,  service, and personal attention make the fee worth. More...

Minas was diamond in the rough for sure! We found an AMAZING apartment with him. I love how well he knows the neighborhood and the people who live there. When I wanted to go see a place for the first time (without ever meeting him) my schedule kept changing and he was very accommodating. His demeanor is calm and he was so nice. My husband and I love him so  much we have passed his info along to our friends also looking in the neighborhood. They love him now as well. If you want to rent in Astoria, rent with Minas. You won't be sorry. More...

We worked with George (Georgios Anagnostopoulos) to find our dream apartment. He was terrific. He worked so hard to find us exactly what we wanted and didn't waste our time with apartments that didn't meet our criteria. I can't recommend him enough.  He not only showed us really good options, he was a nice guy and we felt like we could trust him. Don't get that often. More...

Cristina Candio is one of the most dedicated and honest people I know. When I first emailed her about a listing at 7am on a Saturday, she got back to me within seconds. That responsiveness continued throughout the entire process. My Astoria apartment hunt was very difficult due to some issues with another roommate, but she was persistent and never gave up. She found me an amazing apartment and I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend Cristina to anyone looking for an apartment. There are a lot of shady agents in Astoria, but she is the complete opposite. Don't even put anymore thought into it and just give her a call. More...

I worked with Mayra over a few weeks looking for a new apartment in Astoria.  She was on time, prepared, and friendly, even when working on evenings and weekends to accommodate my schedule.  She took time to text or email me with additional apartments to review.  Unfortunately, lease timing, and amenities did not coincide with the budget I was looking to stay within so I did not rent a place.  I decided to stay where I am for another 6 months or so and pick up my search late this summer.  I intend on contacting her at that time.  I've worked with realtors in several states over the years as a buyer, landlord, and tenant, as well as with several realtors for this most recent rental search.  She's one of the best.

I dealt with Steve trying to find a place in Astoria. He was extremely knowledgable and helpful during the process. I found a place and yet he still followed up weeks later which was very nice of him. It's a pleasure to work with someone who is truly friendly and easy going while at the same time super professional. More...

David Diedrich was extremely helpful and professional in what can be a difficult to navigate market in Astoria.  Dave made himself extremely available to us in our search- he responded to our initial request in under 15 minutes, and returned all calls immediately throughout the process.  He didn't push rentals on us at all, and really listened to our selection criteria.  Because of this, we were able to find the perfect place under our budget after looking at only three listings!  He even inspected the property before our move in to make sure a few small repairs were complete. Look no further for a reliable realtor. More...

This review is for Greg Kyroglou.  I had called Greg about an apt and he had told me he would contact me when it became available. I didn't think he would actually remember me, but he did and contacted me as soon as he was alerted.  That really impressed me. Through every step of my apt process, Greg was super helpful, friendly, and honest about everything.  I truly felt like he had my best interests in my mind.  My apt lease was super easy bc of his help and the entire process was pretty seamless thanks to him. He even followed up with me even after his part was done.  I couldn't be happier with my experience with greg and modern spaces. If I ever look for another apt in the future, I will definitely give him a call! More...

I recently rented an apartment through Modern Spaces and had about as easy a rental experience as possible. Greg Kyroglou is without a doubt the most honest and accommodating agent I ever worked with. Astoria is full of shady, unreliable brokers who often push their own agendas, but Modern Spaces -- and specifically Greg -- stands out as the rare broker that's reliable and trustworthy. More...

Eli from Modern Spaces was so kind, professional, and helpful. We are really grateful to find what we wanted in our new home. Eli listened to our needs and was respectful of our budget, our requests, and our time. He helped get us into a home that we are incredibly excited about. Can't wait to host our first gathering in our beautiful apt (with balcony) in Astoria BY THE PARK! :) Woooooo hoooo! More...

This review is for Samantha Freire, an agent with Modern Spaces NYC who helped my roommate and I finally find an apartment. We looked for a month and a half, had brokers lie, fluff it up, just to take my application fee and keep it. Than we had brokers who just didn't get back to us. I called Samantha and immediately felt like someone was finally listening. Not only did Samantha Freire help us get an apartment, it was the first one she showed us, no sugar coating with her and she does whatever she says she will. After working with real estate brokers for years I can honestly say Samantha knows her inventory and actually listens to her clients on what they need and what their situation is. Samantha Freire at Modern Spaces NYC did in one day what no broker could do for me in a month... Also she does not FORCE you into something by showing you the worst things she has. She gets you what you ask for. More...

Dave and Cristina at Modern Spaces were truly great to work with.  They were able to work with my budget, and Dave really went out of his way to continually provide updates.  Cristina was on an international vacation but STILL communicated via email and answered my questions.  Unfortunately the landlord dragged his feet on the application (which Dave was very apologetic about) so I went with another apartment through a different broker.  Dave also had other Astoria apartments lined up to aid in finding an apt.If given the opportunity I would definitely work with Dave and Cristina again.  Both are professionals who under the hassles of moving and work towards making a stressful situation much easier.

I've had negative experiences in the past with various real estate agents, but David at modern spaces is unlike any other. He picked up my phone on the first call, set up an appointment to see an apartment at 830pm, and mapped out how the whole lease process would happen before it did. He followed up on my moving date to make sure the landlord followed through on renovation promises and was very professional the whole time. I don't know how the rest of the agents at modern spaces operate, but I would highly recommend David. More...

This review is for Greg Kyroglou. Not being from NYC, my husband and I started looking for our new apartment months in advance...AKA too early. We had hoped that we would stumble upon a hidden gem with a move in date far enough in advance for us. I reached out to a number of brokers in Astoria to assist in our search and not was as professional, honest and helpful as this guy! As I reached out to Greg too early in advance for there to be any available units, he said he would get back to me closer to our move in date. Sure enough, one month prior to our move in date, who emails me? This guy!Greg is defiantly a broker who keeps his word and treats his clients with the up-most respect. If youre looking for a place in Astoria, Greg is your guy! More...

Moving back to NYC, Tom Blaze has been awesome. He showed us two amazing places and we filled out an application within an hour. Unlike many other realtors (especially in the city), off the bat, he seemed very amiable and genuine. When walking the streets, random people stopped and said hello, as he helped a lot of people find their apartments nearby. It was also nice that he was willing to meet us on his day off, as his co worker was at a funeral. Our apartment hunt was cut short a huge deal as a result. We've since moved forward with an great apartment in an ideal location well within our budget. More...
