Ian is the best - consummate professional, extremely knowledgeable, honest and understanding. It was our first time apartment hunting in NYC and we were overwhelmed going into the process. Ian put us at ease right away, and we found our dream apartment in the first few showings. He truly had our best interests at heart - can''t recommend him enough.

Ian responded immediately and was courteous, encouraging and helpful. He explained the advantages of the building management and the building itself. We were very pleased with Ian''s assistance and would call on him again.

Ian made my apartment hunt so much easier than expected. I was initially hesitant to use a broker, but my brother referred me to Ian with high recommendations after finding a no-fee apartment in his ideal location. We saw ~30 apartments in a few days, all of which were great options. Ian was not at all pushy and allowed me the time to make my own decision. He was accommodating of my schedule and handled all communications from the start of the search through the signing of the lease, explaining everything along the way. He was awesome to work with - highly recommended!!!

All I heard from friends and total strangers alike was that finding a New York City apartment was incredibly difficult and frustrating. I did not find that to be the case at all. Once you wrap your head around price per square foot vs ANYWHERE else you have lived previously - all you have to do is take the time to look. Maybe I got lucky, but after a short conversation with my agent Ian Sossen he knew what I was looking for. Actually I fell in love with the first apartment he showed me. I knew it was right for me the moment I stepped in the door. I wasn''t ready to move for about 6 weeks, (normally a deal breaker) Ian went to bat and successfully persuaded the leasing company to secure my preferred move in date, something I hear rarely if ever happens. I am extremely happy with my little piece of the Rock! Thanks Ian for making it so easy on me!

I worked with Ian while looking for an apartment when I recently moved to Manhattan from abroad. He showed me numerous high quality apartments and although it took a while before I decided on something, he was both patient and courteous throughout the process. He made the experience a much simpler one than I expected with his extensive knowledge of the better buildings in the city. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an honest and professional broker.

I started working with Ian from afar, since I was moving from Brazil to NYC. I knew how difficult it could be to lease an apartment as a foreigner in NY, but Ian made it all super easy and was very knowledgeable of all the different requirements landlords usually have for foreign tenants.

I contacted Ian from Brazil and he was incredibly professional, honest and extremely thoughtful. In a couple of hours, he already had a short list of apartments he thought I could be interested in. We narrowed down to a total of 6 apartments and Ian was supper effective, visiting them all in one day and using Facetime to show them to me since I wasn’t in the US at the time.

I was very apprehensive to lease an apartment sight unseen, but Ian truly had my best interest at heart and found an amazing apartment that met all the requirements I was looking for and was within my budget. I have since moved to the apartment and I could not be happier with my choice.

Ian was incredible during all of this process and I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for apartments in NY. He truly goes above and beyond for his clients.

We started to work with Ian from afar, and even before we set foot in NYC, he had already started to narrow down options for us to look at. When we arrived in New York, he had a solid short-list of apartments that fully met our requirements and a solid agenda of visits for the day. Thanks to his professionalism, and having understood exactly what we were looking for, we were able to close in on, and secure, an apartment in NYC in a record 4 days. We were very lucky to have found Ian and recommend him without hesitation.

I am moving from Toronto to New York for work and after seeing Ian's great reviews enlisted his help in finding an apartment in Manhattan. I found him to be extremely effective, knowledgeable, honest, and understanding of his client's needs and concerns.

To start, as a Canadian finding an apartment in Manhattan is not an easy process as lessors generally have different and more restrictive requirements for foreigners. Ian was extremely helpful in walking me through the process as a foreign citizen, making sure I had the proper documentation in-hand when I landed in New York.

I was only in New York for a couple days, so Ian managed to line up about a dozen apartments in one day that we looked at together. The next day, a Saturday, there were a couple apartments I had interest in that I wanted to see for a second time, so Ian took time out of his weekend to arrange and attend last-minute showings. I ended up choosing one of these apartments, so we went back to his office, prepared the application package, and submitted it. My application was successful, and within a couple days I was able to sign the leases from Toronto. The process was over more quickly and easily than I could have hoped for or imagined.

I cannot recommend Ian enough and urge anyone looking to buy or rent to contact him.

"I have finished off a property search with Anchor's Real Estate Agent, Ian Sossen. Ian - aside from years of experience - is an agent that truly works for his clients/customers in their quest for better living conditions. He is very knowledgable about most areas in Manhattan and has a firm grasp about the "appetites" of many high-end management companies (what they are looking for so the applicants will promptly qualify for approval be it in rental or purchase.) As observed, on numerous occasions, he has an excellent long-standing professional relationships with a number of realty firms and several co-brokers; that is to say he is respected by his peers and my a number of his clients, like myself.

I have already given several of his business cards to associates of mine whom are looking to purchase high-end market real estate.

If you have been burned by using other realtors in Manhattan, as I have in the past, you should make one last effort and contact Ian Sossen at Anchor Associates.

I moved from Toronto to New York and I was looking for an apartment to move into from Toronto. It was difficult to find an apartment with no credit history but Ian made it so easy. With Ian''s help, I was able to view multiple apartments remotely and he was considerate enough to help me find an apartment within my budget and in a great neighbourhood, close to my office. I have moved into my new apartment since and I absolutely love it here and it wouldn''t have been possible without Ian. Thank you so much!

Ian was absolutely amazing! He really listened to what we wanted in an apartment and made sure to only take us to see units that fit this criteria. He was always checking in on us to make sure everything was going smoothly, even right up to our move-in date. I would highly recommend Ian for anyone looking to make apartment hunting super easy!!!
