Dan Janow Photo

An outgoing and efficient representative with a welcome sense of humor, Dan Janow prides himself on being the perfect ally in the search for a new home. In fact, he sees his role as something akin to a consultant—a collaborative guide who provides value by educating clients, researching options, and solving problems.

At the beginning of the search, Dan likes to ask as many questions as possible, in order to streamline the process later on. “Questions take time and questions save time,” he says. “But when it comes to looking at apartments, I use a ‘show, don't tell’ approach.” Dan is a native New Yorker with a broad knowledge base of neighborhoods and properties throughout the city. A practicing attorney before he joined the real estate industry, his ability to target, research and synthesize information is vital to his success as a representative.

Dan received his B.A. from Franklin and Marshall College and his J.D. from George Washington University, where he was proud to be Chief of Staff of the Student Bar Association and captain of the softball team. He also wrote comedy skits, danced, and acted in the “Law Revue show” for which he was the first person voted “Worst Singer” two years in a row. He’s a huge Yankees fan whose extracurricular pursuits include intramural sports, chess, and stand-up comedy. He calls the Financial District home.

Dan. Is. Awesome. From the moment I first spoke with him about my search, it was clear I was dealing with someone incredibly bright, and committed to understanding exactly what my boyfriend and I were looking for. Seriously - he found us THE EXACT apartment we were envisioning, that wasn't listed *anywhere*. A two-bedroom in a doorman building in Chelsea that allows pets, with a private terrace, walk-in closets AND a soaking tub - within our price range. What?! Yes.. A place that included not only every must-have on our list, but every nice-to-have - along with some perks we didn't even know were possible (brand new Viking appliances - seriously?). He found us several other places, as well, that covered all of our bases. And (!) he dealt with both of us - a couple moving in together for the first time - not an easy task...
We ended up renting a place ourselves directly due to some timing issues on our part, which was a bummer as we really wanted to close a deal with Dan given how great he was to work with.
I highly recommend using Dan Janow to help you find your next place. Not only is he great at what he does, but he's pretty fun to walk around the city with, too (imagine conversations around things like Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?" while hoofing around downtown at blazing speeds).

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Dan was excellent to work with. He was more than willing to show us many apartments in several different locations. Anytime we needed to get into contact with him he was quick to respond and made finding an apartment easy and fun. If I ever need to find an apartment again I would use Dan without question.

Dan is a master of realty.

He remained within our budget, and quickly gauged our apartment preferences after showing us a wide variety of buildings and spaces. Not once were we pressured to make a decision, a rarity in NYC.

We found our place at the end of April, and Dan went the extra mile. Knowing that our current lease lasted until June 1st, he negotiated with the building to postpone the move-in to May 29th. More than a month after signing our lease!

Should we move again, we will be contacting Dan. I suggest you do the same.
