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!

Joel was amazing to work with!!! He was professional, friendly, and extremely helpful! His expertise were crucial in helping me find a place that fit my budget and needs. I was extremely stressed out trying to find a studio in New York on my own. Once I started working with him, he found me a place in 2 days, and the whole experience was painless. I absolutely love my new place and I'm so grateful I had Joel to help me.

Joel is a phenomenal real estate agent. I signed a lease for a new apartment within 2 weeks of contacting him. He is always super friendly, professional, flexible, knowledgable, helpful and respectful. Joel responds to emails extremely quickly and answers all questions thoroughly. Overall, Joel made the apartment search process completely painless. I would absolutely recommend Joel to someone looking for a top-notch real estate agent, even if you know nothing about finding a place to live in NYC (like me!).

From the start of first browsing sites to find a unit to personally meeting Joel, his customer service was phenomenal. I came to his office without knowing anything about the city and the different neighborhoods. Joel made me feel extremely welcomed and asked me great questions about my lifestyle/personality to match me up with the perfect neighborhood.

When I narrowed it down to some desired areas, Joel put together a showing list that had all my desirable wants and that were also within my budget range. I loved how he had units that were on the lower side of my budget in addition to the higher side, so that I could see what price difference would get me here in the city.

Joel was in communication with me at all times and immediately answered any questions I had. He also was there to assist me when things got overwhelming in the search/application process. I could not have adjusted to the city as quickly as I did without him and his team. From the start, they welcomed me with open arms, made me feel extremely valuable, and never once pressured me into working with them. I look forward to working with Joel in the future and recommend him to friends as well.

Joel was professional, responsive and helpful throughout the process, from looking at apartments to filling out the application to signing the lease. He made what we expected to be a very daunting and confusing process run smoothly from start to finish. We feel very fortunate to have found him and would recommend him to anyone. In the sea of confusion that is the NYC renting process, Joel is a real gem!

Joel is a very helpful real estate agent. Moving is really a super stressful time and what also makes it worse is that sometimes you end up working with or dealing with seedy individuals. Joel is definitely the opposite of all the typical stereotypes that come with the process. Although we didn''t ultimately get the apartment his team showed us due to timing, he was very helpful and responsive via both text message and via the phone. He had alot of good advice and tips for all my questions and never treated me like a commission. It really was a refreshing experience to say the least and i''d definitely look to work with him again should my housing situation change.
