I highly recommend Joel. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him. He responded to my inquiry within minutes and guided me through the whole process. He found my fiancé and me our dream apartment. We couldn’t be happier.

Joel is a stand-out realtor who really went above and beyond to help me with my apartment search. He took time to understand my needs, help me prepare my paperwork, and answered all my questions throughout the process. Even though it was super early, he still took time out of his day to walk me around various apartments so that I''d have a better idea of what I was getting into (as I''m moving in from out-of-state). I appreciated his NYC-native insider knowledge and kind, humorous approach to a stressful apartment search. When I found a non-broker-fee apartment outside of our search, he still helped me look it up and encouraged me to sign although he wouldn''t gain anything from it. I couldn''t have done found a place in NYC without him - and next time I look, I''ll be sure to contact him and refer my friends!

Joel knew me better than I know myself. He focused my apartment search and left me a satisfied customer just weeks later. Top notch. Highly recommend.

Joel did an amazing job helping me find my apartment. He was very upfront with my options and asked a lot of clarity on what I was looking for to provide the best set of information for apartments to view. He provided a catalog of over 8 apartments for me to view all within my range and needs. When i decided on which apartment to sign on he was quick to respond on all communications with specific details on next steps. He also was very communicative when I was in the process of submitting my application. He''s a great agent and I''d totally work with him again!

Finding an apartment in Manhattan that is a good fit for you, and your budget, is not an easy task, even if you happen to be a Manhattan native. With this in mind, I wanted to acknowledge Joel Francois, senior managing agent at Bond New York Properties (office # 646-666-2388). Joel takes the time to meet and get to know you, and what you need in an apartment. This is especially important when you have specific requirements, such as a requisite amount of closet space, a bedroom that has at least a particular amount of square footage, pet considerations, etc. Once your requirements are articulated, he compiles a list of candidate apartments that match your requirements as much as possible. He explained their process is about building relationships with their clients, both in the present and for the future. This helps to put you at ease and provides you with confidence that your search will be successful. If you are looking for an apartment in NYC, Joel Francois is the man to see.

I had a wonderful experience working with Joel to find my apartment. He was kind and informative and really listened to my needs. He worked hard to find the best places that met my budget and replied to all my emails in a timely manner to answer any questions I had. Once I found a place and signed the lease, he continued to help me get settled. (Continued to answer my emails!) He did whatever he could do to connect me with property management and make me feel comfortable. I''m very happy with the apartment and grateful for the time and attention he gave me to find it.

I have to mention that I have never experienced such a professionalism, quality and care from a real estate broker on the territory of NYC during the last ten years of my moving-around-the-city. I contacted him from Europe when I decided to look for an apartment and it took me literally two weeks to fill in all the documents, pass through the board for approval and get the key. He has been compactly taking care of my case which in the situation that I was at this moment was the most precious help I received. He has been absolutely outstanding and understanding to the point of going beyond professional borders in order to accommodate my case. I highly appreciate the work he did and the agency should be proud to have people like him representing it. Wish him and BOND all the success in the future!
Joel and Sophia have been incredibly helpful and kind from the moment we walked in till we left with a great apartment. These two are definitely one of tops in their field. I would recommend them to people in need.
Joel was absolutely outstanding during my rental search with my roommate. He was not only incredibly knowledgeable of the market, but was understanding of our needs and budget. He exceeded our expectations by finding us an apartment within our budget and with a low commission fee all while during the height of the rental season in Manhattan. He worked quickly to secure our apartment and we were able to move into our new home quickly and with ease. Furthermore, he followed up with myself and my roommate when we had questions or concerns and made himself available at all hours. Without hesitation, we would wholeheartedly recommend Joel. He is a reliable agent, a wealth of information, and will work to find the apartment that fits all of your needs. Thank you for everything, Joel!
