I spent a Saturday afternoon with Howard Hauptman. I provided rental unit / neighborhood preferences in the week leading up to Saturday and all of the units we visited met or exceeded these requirements. Most of the units did not have a fee, either. Howard came prepared to view at least 10 units. He was punctual, cordial, and professional. At no point did I feel rushed though I was taking time on a weekend. Additionally, he resides in the area which makes him quite knowledgeable about different landlords. I signed a lease for a rental unit we visited and I could not be happier with the process. Howard made it easy. I connected with him via a friend (who he remembered 8 months later!).

Had a wonderful experience working with Howard Hauptman. Great, honest person who helped us find the perfect place. Very highly recommended.
Howard of Anchor Associates helped me and my boyfriend find a fantastic apartment, under budget, that met all of our must haves and many of the items on our wish list! What we both appreciated about working with Howard was that he was exceptionally understanding our of concerns, desires, and needs, he never pressured us into a decision, and he was always available when we needed to speak with him. We would recommend Howard and his associates to anyone and everyone, and we will only work with him in the future. Thanks again for your help Howard!

Howard Hauptman was incredible! We came to him in a crunch, as we needed to find and move into an apartment in a period of four days. After speaking on the phone, he presented us with great options, the first place being our dream spot! He made it happen for us and made a stressful prospect a very smooth transition. We cannot thank him enough and highly recommend Howard and Anchor!
I worked with Howard Hauptman. My company relocated me to NYC from Dallas and I had to find an apartment ASAP. I arrived on Friday and made appointments to look at 4 apartments that next day. Howard promptly waited for me outside the apartment I wanted to view and he provided me with the best service I could have asked for. He was genuine and really cared about my well-being and was not pushy at all. I loved the apartment and had to move in ASAP. The office was closed due to the Holiday weekend and he submitted, as promised, my application first thing that Tuesday morning and the application was approved within 4 hours. I signed my lease today and can move in tomorrow. It could not have gone any better for me and I was lucky to have found Howard. I highly recommend you to reach out to him!

Howard Hauptman from Anchor is a diamond in the rough world of New York City real estate!! Anyone who has lived in this city knows that root canals and running a marathon are easier than finding an apartment. Not only is inventory sparse but the brokers who show them are forceful, disinterested, and unresponsive.
This winter my boyfriend and I had the pleasure of working with Howard to find a new apartment in our neighborhood on the Upper East Side. From our first interactions, we knew he was different. He listened, responded, and only showed us apartments he would approve of for his own family. Howard took the time to find out what we wanted and only showed apartments that fell within our difficult criteria. When our search needed to be put on hold temporarily, he understood. Howard then proactively reached out to us! It was not to swindle us in to a cramped walk-up, but to assist in finding us a home!! He knew what we wanted and through his vast connections had apartments to fit our needs!!
During the entire process Howard went above and beyond the call of duty. He continually updated us, assisted with the application, and even offered to drop off our deposits!! Our deal wasn''t sealed with a signing, but a hug. Howard is a true gentleman and the definition of caring.
If you need a home, your first (and only) call should be to Howard Hauptman.

This was the second time that I''ve worked with Howard H. at Anchor, which speaks volumes about his professionalism, dedication, and commitment to his clients. Howard will stop at nothing to find you the perfect apartment, and is extremely well connected in the real estate industry. Howard years of experience prove invaluable when it comes to closing a deal. He has built a solid rapport with several different management companies, landlords, and property owners in New York, and truly knows the ins and outs of each building. Whether you need advice on furniture layout, a lesson in building fees, or a recommendation for the best neighborhood pizza, Howard''s work ethic and determination for client satisfaction are second to none. We will definitely use Howard again for our next apartment!
Thank you for your help, Howard - we love the new digs!

My boyfriend and I were having a very difficult time finding what we wanted, where we wanted and with time not in our favor, it was our luck to have Mr. Howard Hauptman, an agent with Anchor Associates Group, recommended to us. He was literally a hero that saved us from the obstacle course that is New York City real estate leasing! Not having any luck finding the right apartment that matched our extremely particular criteria, Mr. Hauptman was able to jump right in last minute and find us not just a solution, but our dream home. He helped us find exactly what we were looking for, literally the only unit that existed in our desired location that checked every box on the list. No other leasing agent was able to meet our needs, and Mr. Hauptman was able to find our hidden gem. Further, he helped manage the leasing process and helped smooth out the bumps in the road. It''s rarely smooth sailing when apartment hunting and leasing in New York, but thanks to agents like Mr. Hauptman and the Anchor Associates Group you really can have a happy ending
I have to write to you to say what a pleasure it was to meet you and work together.
I wish that more Brokers in our business had your qualities of intelligence, carefulness and integrity.
I look forward to doing more deals with you, in future.
All the very best,
July 2015 , Howard Hauptman
