Justin Duffy

Justin Duffy

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Justin Duffy was born and raised in Brick, New Jersey, down by the famous---and now infamous---Jersey Shore. Born to a police officer and a veterinary technician, he had a very interesting and educational upbringing. This small town New Jersey origin has allowed him to truly appreciate human connection and community.

When Justin graduated high school, his parents separated and he made a move up to Elizabeth, NJ with his father. He spent four years in Elizabeth learning about himself and the beauty and diversity of people. During this time he began building a career in fashion retail as a visual merchandising manager, which eventually lead him to New York City.

After a year of living in Brooklyn and designing store and window displays for top retail chains in Manhattan, Justin decided to leave the fashion world in pursuit of something more fulfilling. He had always had an interest in real estate, not because of the income potential, but because of the people. It's all about relationships.

"There are no bad experiences; just good stories. The same goes for the people and the adventures you encounter while working in New York City real estate. It's all beautiful and I am so grateful to be able to meet and help so many amazing people on a daily basis."

Justin now works with the largest independently owned real estate firm in New York City, getting to know his clients better than they know themselves---and finding them the homes of their dreams. When he's not helping his clients, you can find Justin at a yoga studio in Brooklyn, an art gallery in Chelsea, or practicing with the local improv group.

Justin and Phillip adopted a systematic and informative approach when helping me with the apartment search. They were mindful of my criteria at all times, knowledgeable about the apartment listings, and quickly incorporated feedback from the first day into the second day of viewing. They also kept clear and prompt communications regarding document preparation, action items, as well as any potential issues. Both my mom and I found the interactions with them a pleasant experience. I am glad to be able to find a place within such a short time frame, and would like to recommend Justin and Phillip for being professional, efficient, and friendly throughout the process.

Justin is very knowledgeable and highly professional – we were able to find an apartment the first day I met him. Throughout the whole process he was quick to respond to any questions I had and his answers were very helpful. Even after the lease was signed, Justin has answered questions and helped with anything I have reached out to him for. I would highly recommend Justin to anyone I know.

Justin was an amazing agent and was very knowledgeable about the properties. He helped me through every step of the renting process and answered (the many) questions I had afterwards.

My daughter just finished her freshman year at NYU and her dorm situation for next year was untenable. With great apprehension, we began the search for an affordable apartment in the city. She had to do almost everything, as her father and I live 6000 miles away. Justin Duffy was helpful, easy to contact, professional, and efficient. He was transparent about the process and the fees involved, and all of his advice proved correct. I felt free to ask as many questions as necessary, and Justin answered my dozens of questions with a smile in his voice. Most importantly, my daughter felt comfortable with him and, happily, found the perfect apartment on her first day looking.

I was really troubled looking for a place to stay at SoHo area just for 6 months. Justin and Phillip were really welcoming and fast finding me a place. On the same day I was signing the papers. Truly, I didn''t expect such results. Tremendously glad I went to them.

Justin was fantastic to work with. After expressing my eagerness to find an apartment, Justin made me feel hopeful that he would find me what I was looking for. His confident demeanor kept me stress free throughout. I would recommend him to anybody that wants to make the apartment hunting process easy.

Justin would be my number one choice for agents to work with in NYC. I''m from a small city and found out early on that looking for apartments in NYC was stressful! I worked with 4 different agents, saw over a dozen apartments, and still was not any closer to signing a lease. Enter Justin. He changed the game! I sent him an email and the next day he responded and I was able to schedule a consultation with him that same week. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and only showed me what I wanted to see. He didn''t waste my time and showed me only apartments that were within my budget. Throughout the whole process he kept in constant communication with me and answered all of my questions. In addition, he even showed up to my lease signing to ensure that everything went smoothly! From the first day I interacted with him, to the last, I know that he was working full time for me. I would recommend him to anybody looking for apartments in NYC. Nothing but good things to say about him! I found my dream apartment in NYC and I couldn''t be happier!

Justin was incredibly informative, couldn''t have asked for a better agent! He made me feel comfortable, and was very responsive to the numerous questions I had. In particular, he was very honest and never dodged any of the weird questions I threw at him. He was also very precise with all of the financial matters. In the end we found a perfect place for me. Overall great experience, will surely work with Justin again down the line.

It was very nice to work with Justin Duffy and Linaris Rivera. Follow up on the transaction was amazing.

Justin is a superstar! My wife & I moved to NYC late February and needed to find a place asap. Our requirements were not the easiest (short tenancy, location etc..) and we had spoken to a few agents before and were very nervous about the whole process. Then I came across Justin Duffy on one of the real estate websites and sent him and email. From get-go Justin was amazing! He was warm and friendly, very accommodating and extremely helpful. He had excellent knowledge of the city and very quickly pointed us to a few places we might like. Infact, the place we moved into (less than a week later!) was no.1 on the list Justin made for us. Justin went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure we were able to get the place. He did an amazing job speaking to the landlord and guarantors on our behalf and put an admirable effort until he was finally able to secure the apartment for us. Justin is down to earth, friendly, very knowledgable and a pleasure to work with. Justin, thank you for making my wife & I feel welcome here in NYC and making one of the most difficult aspects of our trip so much easier. We saved a lot of stress and sleepless nights thanks to you.

Justin helped me in finding my most recent apartment. As the process is always a bit stressful, Justin made it feel smooth from start to finish. He provided me with a lot of options and wanted to ensure my needs were all met. He was also persistent in finding alternative options when the first apartment I was interested in did not work out. He was super helpful along the way and it was truly a pleasure working with him!

Great working with Justin Duffy and Aubree Brown. Very knowledgeable, efficient and professional. Amazed that I was able to secure an apartment with all documentation done within a week from my start of the search.
