Unsolicited Testimonial 1

Unsolicited testimonial by an owner/client, from a letter sent to Miho’s broker regarding follow-up care she provided many months after the deal was completed:

“Recently my tenant had problems with Con Edison’s extreme billing errors regarding his electrical usage. At that time, upon my request, Ms. Aono intervened on my tenant’s behalf to advocate his cause with Con Edison. She spent an incredible amount of time and effort negotiating with Con Ed and the problem was finally solved in my client’s favor.

Since I met Ms. Aono, the image I always had in my mind of ‘real estate agents’ has changed 180 degrees. It may be rude to say this, but until now I felt real estate agents’ attitude was ‘once received the commission, that’s the end of it’. (Perhaps that’s the norm.) Ms. Aono is completely different. I never knew anyone exists who does that much for her client. I bow my head to her.

Ms. Aono also found an apartment for my employee, and we are very satisfied with the apartment and the service we received.

I am very honored and very happy that I got to know someone like Ms. Aono. Thank you very much.”

"In finding us an apartment, you really took care of us very well. Thank you very much.

Miho's kind, courteous and thorough support, and her appropriate and timely actions were the reasons we were able to get this apartment.

My husband and I are very happy that we were able to get the apartment we really wanted. We are always talking about the fact that without Miho's efforts, realistically speaking it would have been impossible for us. Thanks to Miho's assistance, we were able to attain happiness in New York.

In the past, we experienced several Real Estate Agents, but they were always only interested in our income or if we can pay the rent. They were very pushy and they only showed us apartments that were easy for them deal with.

With this coop apartment, at the beginning it seemed almost impossible to us. There was so much paperwork and we were feeling so overwhelmed by all the obstacles that seemed to be stacked up ahead for us, that at times we felt very discouraged. But every time Miho was always kind and supportive, and she instructed and guided us through. She said to us, it's okay, don't worry -- let's work through it together. Her words, her integrity and her pro-active approach always encouraged us, and inspired confidence in us that we could overcome all obstacles.

When the time came that we passed the interview, my husband, Miho and I were really happy together. Miho was so happy for us as though she had gotten her own apartment.

Miho always put our feelings first, and we appreciate that so much. Even after her job was done, she e-mailed me to say we should contact her if any problem arises. I knew it wasn't just words -- I really feel she has our best interests at heart.

Lastly, we appreciate that we met Miho through this apartment search. Thank you Miho for giving us such a wonderful apartment.

To the many people looking for new apartments, put yourselves in Miho's capable, hard-working hands and wrap yourselves in her warm, caring support." — Yaeko Kato

"I first met Miho two years ago when I was looking for a rental in Forest Hills and she had a listing I was interested in. That rental did not work out, but Miho worked very hard for me at that time with personal service and research. I postponed my move to Forest Hills for a year. But as soon as I was ready to start my search again, I contacted Miho because I had had such a good experience with her. I knew that she would give my search the kind of care and attention I needed. And indeed, this time she found me the right property. I negotiated my lease through her and it has worked out well. She is polite, easy to deal with and very professional, and she takes a personal interest in her clients. I highly recommend her." - Dan Jacobson
