My roommate and I used Bapple to find our first apartment in the city. Mary was extremely understanding of our budget and neighborhood preferences. A lot of brokers assume you are ignorant and will ram their opinions and 15% fee down your throat. I never felt that way with Mary. She took great care of us as and was extremely patient as we made up our minds. We settled on a place on Thompson St. It''s small but exactly what we could get for our budget in our top neighborhood. If you''re up front with what you want, Mary will help you find it. Bapple has great relationships with management companies in cool neighborhoods, too. Will definitely contact in a year when we are doing this again.
Christina''s professionalism coupled with her affability make her a true pleasure to work with. With deep knowledge of the city''s nuanced real estate scene, Christina consistently provided expert counsel and understood how to navigate the complex market. Christina helped me find an apartment that met all my requirements and even surpassed my expectations. I highly recommend Christina and look forward to working with her again in the future.
We were very very pleased with our experience with Christina at Bapple in Dec 2013. We liked her right away and found her to be the most honest, down to earth broker we ever met in NYC. We responded to her ad for a Soho 2 bedroom and within 1 day we were on our way towards applying, getting approved and signing the lease at the Bapple offices. She took the time to walk us over to our new place, before we even had keys to take measurements, and she was always quick to answer all our questions by email and text during the holidays.
Unfortunately, we don’t expect to meet other brokers like this in Manhattan…..
Thank you again Christina!
It was a great pleasure to be assisted by Christina! She is a very genuine and strong person who knows what she is doing. I felt she understood my expectations in terms of accommodation and delivered the perfect result! I'm happy in my apartment also because of her.
Bonus Note: She waited with me over two hour for the bedbath&beyond guy to deliver my stuff in the apartment! Admirable
Christina assisted me to secure a large property short term for my family when we were visiting NYC in the summer of 2013. The property was very competitive, having her in the city made it possible for us to obtain it upon my arrival. We had very important requirements which she made sure were not overlooked. Very good service from her.
We worked with Christina to find an apartment for my daughter Giulia who was enrolled for a semester abroad at a school in the Financial District in 2013. After a very difficult experience with the first property, a friend referred us to Christina who found the perfect apartment the first day we went out looking. Everything I saw before then was just a culture shock! Throughout she was accommodating, friendly, fun, and professional. She also worked very fast. The experience was fantastic so we sent additional friends to her. If you are looking for an honest agent in NYC real estate, please use her services, you will be very happy.

Christina's performance was excellent. When renting a tenant does not know about the landlord and I mean in every aspect. The fact that Bapple has good, honest landlords makes it easier for us tenants to trust your company. I recommend using their brokerage services, and Christina for an agent.
I’m an Italian student who came to NYC for a 6 months exchange program and I wish to recommend Christina, who I had the pleasure to work with, during my apartment hunt in January 2013. She helped me a lot along the way, finding the exact apartment I needed for my stay in NYC. She always was very available, highly dedicated and very professional. When other agents gave up or were not very responsive, Christina was the one who never gave up and who dedicated 100% + of her time to accommodate me, and every single customer she has. In fact she helped 3 of my friends, finding apartments they felt truly happy in very quickly. Christina is very responsive, has very personable manner, strong work ethic and she always puts a lot of effort in her work, to make each customer feel exclusive and satisfied.
For those looking to rent or buy any property in NYC, Christina's service is excellent and you will be very happy. She is the best!
I have had the pleasure to be assisted by Christina while looking for a flat in February 2013.
Out of all the agents I dealt with, Christina was by far the most responsive, prepared and professional that I have met. She was proactive in suggesting potential flats that could meet my criteria, and as she immediately understood how valuable time was for me, she never showed me anything that wasn’t perfectly matching all my requirements… Needless to say, she matched me with the perfect flat within the first day of visits! She was also extremely helpful in the negotiation of all the terms of the lease (which in my case wasn’t easy) and managed to secure a monthly rent which was below the initial asking price. Nothing was ever too much trouble for her and I highly appreciated all her help.
In summary, I would highly recommend Christina to anyone looking for a property in NY.
