I am the President and Licensed Real Estate Broker for Defiant Realty.  Because I run the company, I'm able to offer you what we believe is the best broker rate available in Manhattan.  We only charge 1/2 month's rent for our service, and as members of the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) I have access to virtually the entirety of Manhattan listings (and the same listings as any other REBNY real estate broker).  Our goal is to find you a better apartment than any other brokerage or than you can find by yourself.  

Give me a call or check out our website.  We can discuss your needs and discuss more about what you're looking for.  I'm looking forward to helping you in your apartment search!

Dan makes the tedious and rigorous apartment searching so much more entertaining. He is honest with the options and tries his best to satisfy his clients in every way. I will definitely recommend him to anyone who looks for an apartment in the city!

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

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).

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.
