Courteous and easy to deal with, assertive but not aggressive. Viewed a couple places with him and he was pretty upfront and honest, no complaints here!

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Apartment hunting in New York is one of the more horrendous things you can put yourself through. That's why we were so lucky to meet Jacob. He immediately responded to our inquiry, and was friendly, honest, and helpful throughout the process. We were completely stressed out before we met him, and then 24 hours after meeting him, had keys to a wonderful new place. We'll be recommending him to all friends looking for apartments in the future.

Jacob was very quick to reply when I emailed regarding a particular apartment we were interested. Although the initial apartment was not to our liking, he quickly learned our preferences and needs and found us the perfect apartment later that same day. As our apartment was getting gut-renovated, he graciously met us twice at the apartment to check on the progress of the remodel. We signed the lease today and would recommend him to anyone for their apartment search!!!!

Jacob was knowledgable, professional, friendly and quick to answer my calls and questions during my apartment search. I was in NYC for only a couple of days and Jacob helped me find a great Brooklyn apartment and sign my lease before I had to leave town.
