Testimonials

We wanted to let you know that Dimitri Skretas was our broker for renting our apt, and his efforts were nothing short of phenomenal. During the entire process, he was very professional and knowledgeable about the real estate market. We trusted him to stage and show our apartment, and he did an excellent job. Even our doormen enjoyed interacting with him. He promptly kept us updated throughout the whole process, including the photo shoot, scheduling viewings, board application, and the lease signing (payment, credit check, etc.). We just had to sit back while he provided excellent service. We were very happy with him and thus wanted to express our appreciation for the value he added.

We've worked with dozens of brokers from various firms over the past 12 years. Some, quite frankly, were idiots. Others were knowledgeable but unresponsive. Yet others provided service only halfheartedly, sometimes leaving us "stranded" towards the end of the transaction. Dimitri, on the other hand, was reliable, responsive, intelligent, and client-friendly throughout the entire process, going above and beyond the call of duty along a number of dimensions.

We wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all of your help with our apartment - not once, but twice. When we left NYC, I told Paul that we'd never have an apartment like this again - but thanks to you, we have our home again. We sent a small token of our gratitude to your office (arriving next week), and hope that you know there was nothing we could have sent that would do justice to the appreciation we feel for your incredible ability as a broker. We will recommend you to anyone we know looking to get or change places in the NYC area, and know that by doing so, the people we care about are in the best possible hands. Believe me, I never thought I'd write any of this about NYC real estate and the people that call it an occupation, but you are the exception that we are so grateful to have in our corner. If there's ever anything we can do (referrals, testimonials, etc.), you only have to ask. You'll be the first call we will make when we need to move again, but until then, thank you for busting your butt to bring us home.

Thank you a thousand times,
Paul and Caitie

"I undersigned Jean.

"To Whom It May Concern:

Kai Wong helped my roommate and I rent our first apartment in Manhattan. He was professional, helpful and honest in all aspects of finalizing our leasing singing. His reliability was exemplary and he would follow up on all questions or concerns that we had in a timely and expeditious fashion.

I thank Douglas Elliman and their excellent judgment in hiring Kai and I especially thank Kai for helping us through the renting process in NYC and getting us into our dream apartment.

Sincerely,"

"We wanted to help our parents find a retirement condo unit in Brooklyn and we are very happy with our experience with Kai as our agent. Kai speaks fluent Chinese and was very articulate and patient in helping our parents throughout the process. Because we can only be in touch via phone or email, his excellent communication skills and prompt replies became the key to the successful transaction. He went above and beyond in helping us deal with difficult sellers, which took away a lot of stress from us. He knows the areas well, and was able to collect enough info to formulate a good offering price. Parents are now in a great unit that they love. We felt that we were in good hands with Kai throughout. He and his team covers Manhattan and surrounding boroughs."

Happy Holidays,

Edmond

"He explained the entire process to me clearly and made sure it would be a simple one. He was punctual, efficient and overall attentive to detail. Even after I obtained my new home, he made sure that my experience had been a good one. If you are looking for a well experienced and kind real estate agent, Kai Wong is definitely the one to use. I am so happy with my new apartment and hope to be in it for many years to come. However, if the opportunity ever come that I must move again, I will definitely reach out to Kai."

Wes S.

Kai helped us get an amazing apartment downtown. He was extremely helpful and honest. He was very knowledgable about the apartment and the area and he answered all of our questions. The process was fast and efficient. Within 30 minutes of seeing the apartment, he was securing our position with management. Only a couple hours after we saw the place we signed the lease and were left with the keys to the apartment. We are so happy with the place we are moving into and cannot thank him enough for making it a reality. I would recommend him as a Realtor to anyone searching for a place to live.

Hi Mark,

I am writing to provide feedback on Dimitrios after working with him on looking for an apartment to rent. He went above and beyond in helping me with my search, often meeting on weekends to show me properties over the course of a couple months. He was extremely diligent in looking for suitable options and followed up regularly. I've decided to go with a temporary solution and look to start evaluating options to buy later on the year and will want to partner with Dimitrios.

Best,
Lauren Ruane

To Whom It May Concern,

I worked with Kai Wong to find a new tenant for my apartment (on which I was breaking a lease). I had a fantastic experience with Kai and would highly recommend him. I am fairly new to the NYC rental market and Kai was very helpful on all accounts. He was responsive to all my queries and requests and managed the process with efficiency, professionalism and honesty. I will look to him in future if I need further real estate assistance.

Sincerely,
Preet P

"I worked with Kai to sell my 1 bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side. From the very first phone call, Kai was very responsive and took ownership of all aspects of the process. I was looking for someone to do all the work of selling my apartment and that's what I got with Kai. All I did was show up at closing."

Ankur S.

I have worked with Kai for about three years now. He first helped me find a few apartments to rent.Recently, I have purchased an apartment with his help.

Kai has always been very helpful and quick to respond. He helped me navigate the complicatedapartment buying process, making it much simpler for a first-time homebuyer in NYC. In addition, he isknowledgeable and is always ready to share valuable advice.

I would recommend Kai as a broker if you are looking to rent or buy an apartment in NYC.

To Whom It May Concern,

Kai Wong was a pleasure to work with, particularly as a first-time renter. He was responsive and thorough in fielding questions, even outside of normal business hours. He was professional to us as prospective clients, but also respectful of current tenants when we were viewing an occupied apartment. We would recommend Kai to anyone seeking an apartment in this competitive NYC market.

Regards,
Samantha Y

To whom it may concern:

I have had the pleasure of working with Kai Wong on the rental of my buildings for the past four years.  During this time he has shown professionalism, honesty and integrity in servicing my properties.  He has handled everything from showings the property demonstrating both knowledge of the apartment and neighborhood, to processing and qualifying the potential tenants.  Through the years Kai has provided me with many great tenants that are respectful of my property and pay their rent on time.  He has become an intricate component in our rental process and an important resource that we rely on.  I would recommend his services to all landlords and management companies that are looking for a broker that provides excellent exposure in addition to personal attention to every rental.

Sincerely,

I am remiss in not writing sooner to commend you on the professional job you have done in negotiation a rental for my New York apartment.  It was my intention to rent my apartment without using the services of a realtor.  What a surprise when you called saying you had a very qualified serious client who would like to see the apartment.  Your professional direct pleasant business-like but affable manner was so compelling that your client moved to the “head of the list”.  After you said she was seriously interested but was in a real time crunch, you moved so quickly to “make it happen”.  You negotiated with me on your client’s behalf always representing your client’s interest in a very reasonable manner.  You and your client had a complete, lengthy, complex board package (and required 10 copies) submitted within 2 days.  Since I am not located conveniently to New York City, this was a huge favor to me.  When I imposed upon you and your client to meet in person on a Friday evening since my time in New York was so limited, you left a social engagement to accommodate me.  You were always immediately responsive to problems that came up along the way.  Unbelievable that start to finish with condo board approval and move-in was accomplished in about 30 days.  The tenant and I owe this all to you (and with help from the management and condo board).

I have dealt with agents for over 30 years.  You are the pleasantest, most professional, efficient, realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with to accomplish our goal.

Sincerely,

Carol B. (M.D.)

 

To Whom It May Concern:

I wanted to write this letter to commend Elliman broker Kai Wong for the excellent job he did in assisting me with my apartment rental.  In our initial correspondence he was quick to respond to my inquiry and was knowledgeable about all aspects of the apartment.  As soon as we progressed to the showing he was prompt and professional; when it was time to settle the deal was consistently clear in his expectations.

It would be my pleasure to recommend him to an inquiring friend, and I’ll certainly be looking for him again should I ever need estate assistance in the future.  Thank you for providing me with a relative pain free and expedient experience in putting me in my new home.

Sincerely,

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing on behalf of Kai Wong.  I recently rented an apartment through him and it was a pleasure working with Kai.  Kai is very responsive, helpful and made the moving process easy.  I would definitely recommend Kai and Douglas Elliman to friends looking for an apartment.

Thank you,

I am currently working with Kai on two transactions, and I wanted to share my experience in working with him.  I also recently shared this with several hundred of my coworkers:

I know that finding the right person to work with in finding /selling an apartment in New York City is a hot topic, so I wanted to make a recommendation.  I’ve now worked with Kevin (Kai) Wong on two occasions—one rental and one sale, and will most definitely continue to work with him for any future New York City real estate needs!  He’s honest, reliable, experienced, knowledgeable, and responsive and always has a great selection of properties.  His firm can also reputably represent rentals and sales to the New York City market.  He has my highest recommendation!

Brenda L.


To Whom It May Concern:

I had the pleasure of working with Kai Wong in searching for an apartment.   Kai was incredibly accommodating and easy to work with, offering to work around my schedule and meet at my office.  With Kai’s help, I was able to find a great Chelsea apartment within my price range and ideal location.  The lease signing was quick and easy and Kai was able to answer all my questions.

Should anyone be in the market for an apartment, I would whole heartedly recommend working with Kai.

Sincerely,

Lindsey D.

"Dimitri Skretas has very conscientiously provided excellent brokerage services for various real estate transactions on my behalf. As an agent, he successfully interceded for me in the sale of an apartment, the purchase of another property and the management of its rental negotiations.

I highly recommend Dimitri as a real estate agent, due to his methodical attention to detail and his untiring devotion to his job and to his client."

Hollace Farber

Dimitrios worked with me in 2003 to purchase an apartment in NYC, my first. He worked thoughtfully and diligently with me during the entire process and I was ever so pleased to observe him cross his t's and dot his i's through the closing in a seamless manner. He is honest and able to resource relevant information as needed. An asset to anyone lucky enough to work with him when navigating the NYC housing market. I recently caught up with Dimitrios and was delighted to find him wearing his experience of this past decade very well while still being the earnest, competent professional he was becoming when we first met.

Denise Melroy, Buyer

I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Dimitrios during the rental then subsequent sale of my mother’s apartment in TriBeCa. He's extremely professional yet still warm and friendly. He makes you feel like he's got your best interest always. I've worked with many agents over the years and few compare to the how he services his clients. I lived outside of Manhattan and at times he found a way to meet me at some mutual point in Brooklyn to deliver documents. He goes the extra mile. No matter how much time passes I feel that I can always call him up and ask him real estate advice and he'd still help me. You're going with the right guy. I wish I can get him out to Brooklyn!

Yvette Wong, Seller

Kevin,


I am so grateful for your ongoing help in matching tenants to my rental property.  Your absolute trustworthiness allows me the freedom to never worry about my investment.  Giving you the key was the best decision I could have made.


Evelyn K.

My wife and I have moved more times than we care to think about.  This has given us the chance to work with a variety of real estate companies, and individual brokers.  Some have been a pleasant experience, while others, not so much.  Working with Kai Wong from the get go was an absolute pleasure.  From our first meeting with him, to his numerous follow ups after, we can honestly say unequivocally that it was the most pleasurable experience we have had dealing with another apartment rental.
