I've read plenty of negative reviews about Pan Am on yelp and so to share my opinion, I added my own review about PanAm on Yelp, and it was hidden under "reviews that are not recommended." So here's hoping this will be seen? I don't understand the majority of the negative reviews on Yelp. On second thought, I do. But none of these issues relate directly to them. These are issues every New Yorker has unless they're paying 5M+ for their apartment. And even then I've heard similar stories or different but far worse... I've had nothing but the best experience with PanAm in my last 4 years. Most of the negative reviews are all things that people deal with in ny, no matter who the landlord. I've been living in Manhattan for over 25 years now and have moved around a lot. Probably 15 apartments total. I've had the experience of several different landlords. Maybe 3 or 4 that I can think of off the top of my head that were as responsive to my needs as PanAm. My super has always helped me out whenever I need it, and if for some reason I can't reach the super, I contact Pan Am and if I'm emailing late at night I always have an answer the next morning or latest early afternoon. They've even addressed some of my issues with tenants by sending out flyers to the entire building. Mostly, I've been angered by the reviews on yelp because I've recommended PanAm buildings to friends and family, who then always stumble across their reviews and second guess themselves and my opinion. I've typically been able to sway them since they've all spent time at my apartment and don't have anything but nice things to say. I don't want my friends, family, and coworkers to think I'm making poor recommendations when I know that its the opposite. Anyway, maybe one day my review will be approved by Yelp. Who knows, since I've always had issues with reviews showing up for restaurants, my laundromat, my dog groomer... they pick and choose as they see fit. I don't really get it.
Cooper & Cooper was such a blessing. Jordan Cooper (one of the principals) contacted me himself in order to set up an appointment and really took the time to understand my needs, requirements, and deadline. Even though we were moving in about a month, we had to find an apartment that specific week due to other work commitments, which would only leave us one week before our scheduled move. Jordan set me up with one of the firm's managers (Genevieve) and we met the next day. Genevieve met with us at our hotel and took us from the Upper East Side to the Lower East Side. We saw about eight apartments, all ranging in sizes, prices, and amenities. She was friendly, professional, organized, efficient, right on spot with the timings, and responsive. We made the decision to go with a wonderful complex in the Upper East Side, steps away from the subway station, within blocks of Central Park. Although it was on the higher end of our budget, we could not be more happy with our choice. Genevieve even managed to negotiate our monthly rent down and include two years of free gym membership in the building (savings of $1200!). Jordan personally attended the lease signing in order to answer any question we might have had and show support. Cooper & Cooper even offered to oversee the movers if we were too busy! In any case, our experience with Jordan and Genevieve could not have been any better. My wife and I felt like they really cared about us and about their reputation. Every firm has good agents and bad agents. But we thank Cooper & Cooper and know we would've never found this complex without them.
