"It was a pleasure to work with Melissa in my search for a NYC apartment. She is professional, extremely qualified and knows the market well. I provided, to Melissa, my requirements as well as price point, and she was extremely adept at providing me with a, well qualified, list of apartments to review. Together, we narrowed the list to those best suited for me. Melissa understood that I was moving in from out of town and would have a limited amount time for viewings and decision making in NYC. She set appointments, in an orderly manner, to make the best use of our time and to maximize our efforts. With her help, I was able to find 3 apartments that warranted serious consideration and then settle on what has become my new home. And all accomplished with one day "on the ground"! I would strongly recommend Melissa Alonso!"

"As I take possession of my co-op apartment on Fifth Avenue, I must thank you for your good work and terrific performance over these last months as my realtor here on 80th Street. Throughout my relations with you and Halstead — and during an extremely competitive moment in the realty market — your savvy instincts and quick intelligence let no ball drop, so to speak. Given the energy and congenial manner that you brought to each showing of my apartment, as well as your careful attention to every detail of the negotiation as we went along, it is hard to imagine you achieving anything less than great success in your NYC real estate career."
