I worked with Mick DiStasio to find an apartment after just moving to the city. Mick was incredibly efficient and professional. He made what otherwise could have been a difficult process easy. We found and signed on our apartment within a matter of days. Mick is a straight shooter and a great broker. I would definitely recommend him. Thanks again Mick!

I was going through a weird transition as my previous broker that I was working with was leaving, but Mick jumped right in and was able to pick off exactly where I was left off. Mick knew what I was looking for, and wasted no time in sending me listings that met all my criteria.
During our first open house day, Mick planned everything so I didn''t have to worry or keep track of which apartments we were seeing, or how to get from place to place. When we were thinking about making offers, Mick was super knowledgeable and communicative, making sure he did research on other comparable sales, and advising us on what would be a good offer. After our offer was accepted, Mick and his team also further impressed me with their hard work and dedication in helping me put together my board application. Mick also helped me to prepare for my board application, and even though I was super nervous, he was able to instill confidence within me.
As this was my first time purchasing a co-op and had no idea what to expect, I knew I could lean on Mick for all my questions. Whenever I had a question, whether it was regarding the apartment itself, financing, mortgage, or even lawyer related, I never once hesitated to contact Mick and knew he would try to help me to the best of his ability.
Mick is awesome, hard working, dedicated, and I might add, a pretty funny guy. He is super communicative and responsible. Even when he was out of the office, he would make sure that I was in contact with another person on his team. I would totally recommend him to anyone! :)

Mick DiStasio was referred to me by a good friend and it was such a pleasure to work with him. My roommate and I ended up finding our dream apartment in our desired price range AND location on the very first night! We were in a bit of a time crunch because the move was unexpected, so we are super thankful to Mick for making this a quick and seamless process. We have heard such horror stories about brokers, but this was completely the opposite. Mick made himself readily available, cabbed us around to showings, helped us throughout our lease signing, and gave us some great contacts for moving companies and other services. He is a super nice guy and very conversational. Definitely recommending Mick to all of my other friends who are moving to new apartments!!

This review is for Mick - Mick was great to work with and made the otherwise dreaded task of moving in NYC pleasant and easy. I''d highly recommend working with him as he''s professional, quick, and genuinely interested in making his clients happy.

Working with Mick to purchase my first apartment in NYC was a great experience. He was quickly able to understand exactly what I was looking for and effectively filtered through hundreds of listings to show me properties that fit my needs. Mick is a highly effective communicator and quickly responded to all my question/emails/calls. He was also highly knowledgeable, preparing through comp lists before bidding on units which helped us to stay rational in a market that was highly competitive. Due to the competitive nature of the market/locations we were bidding in, we lost out on a number of early units to all cash offers. However, Mick and his team were able to come up with creative solutions to make our following bids more competitive and I ultimately ended up with a great apartment in a fantastic location. I will be using Mick for my future real estate needs.

This review is for Mick DiStasio. I've now worked with Mick on two separate occasions - once when I was moving from London back to NYC and another time when he came to my rescue by helping me break a lease as I was taking on a new job in a different city. I can't recommend Mick enough. He is smart, knowledgeable, thoughtful about his client's needs, does great research within the given parameters, does a great job communicating with his clients and really goes above and beyond the call of duty. Mick's sunny personality, patience and creative approach to problem solving make him a true pleasure to be around. #SuperAgent

Mick DiStasio was a great help in finding an apartment in NYC just within 2 days and making the move possible in under a week! We received a great choice of different apartments in different areas and had the time to make our mind up what we would prefer incl. the flexibility to adjust our criteria for apartments on the go. Thanks so much Mick, was a great experience!

We have nothing but fabulous things to say about Mick! Having previously used Ben to find my prior apartment, he immediately referred me (now plus fiancé) to Mick. With less than three days to prepare, Mick arrived with a list of 12-17 apartments, all within our ideal neighborhood and meeting our specifications. By the end of the day, we had submitted our application for the apartment we live in now! We couldn''t be happier with the service Mick provided and would not hesitate to recommend the Anchor team in the future. No doubt, when we move again, we know who to call! Thank you Mick, Ben and team!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Mick DiStasio. He is absolutely amazing. He went out of his way to accommodate me more than once and is extremely reliable. Even though I had a tiny time frame, he helped me find a beautiful apartment. Not to mention he''s extremely personable and hard working! Thank you so much Mick, I don''t know what I would have done without your help!

We worked with an Anchor agent to find our current apartment a few years ago and had a great experience. He''s not there anymore, so we decided to pick someone else from the website this time around. We ended up working with Mick DiStasio and he was fantastic! He really took the time to get to know us and what we wanted. We didn''t look at any apartments that didn''t check off the majority of our boxes. Although we spent the majority of two afternoons searching, it felt efficient, but at the same time, not rushed. Once we had seen all of our options, Mick sat down with us for a drink to talk about which place would be best for us. He had our best interests at heart and wasn''t just worried about the bottom line, and that meant a lot. Bonus: Mick''s "wingspan" is the width of a queen bed, which can be very helpful when trying to get a grasp on a space!

I worked with Mick and he was absolutely great! He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and made my experience very pleasant and easy, which I hear is not typical when looking for apartments in New York City. Overall, Mick was dedicated to finding me exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to use a real estate agent!

Mick DiStasio was tremendous in helping my wife and I find an apartment when relocating to New York. He was able to help us secure a unit that was within our price range and fit our list of requirements. I would highly recommend Mick to any future clients!
