Great agent to work with. Very personable and tries to do anything he can to get you a great apartment. I did not rent an apartment through him, it was just bad timing, otherwise I would have rented one.

Jamal was an exceptional broker, he helped us find exactly what we were looking for and helped make the approval process smooth and effortless. If you want the best apartment possible, work with Jamal, I would definitely recommend him to friends and family and everyone looking to buy, sell or rent in NYC.

Jamal was amazing. From the first phone call he was incredibly knowledgeable, introducing me to neighborhoods I otherwise wouldn't have thought to look in. We told him our requirements (price, safety, etc.) and found great options for us to look at. He even spent an hour driving my roommate around a prospective neighborhood when I was running late from work. Jamal was extremely patient and dedicated to finding us the perfect place. I would without a doubt recommend him to anyone looking to rent in New York!

WARNING: if you are expecting to deal with a typical broker, do not go with Jamal. However, if you are looking for a reliable, trustworthy, helpful advisor who also knows how to do the brokering stuff, go see Jamal.

Let me elaborate... Jamal responded to my inquiry super fast. I contacted him via text as well as through naked apartments after seeing his rave reviews, and it's not a hoax people. Jamal really is the whole package! We saw apartments whenever I asked him I wanted to see some. He never told me no, he never made me feel like I was annoying him (I am very self aware, and it got to a point I know my questions were maybe too repetitive. I can't help it sometimes, I am neurotic like that). He made me feel like we were casually shopping around for the best apartment, and despite some unforeseen bumps in the road, Jamal was always there to relieve my anxiety. We all know how stressful it can be looking for a new home, especially in NYC, but his confidence made me less worried overall. He talked me through all the steps, and when I finally got my apartment he didn't vanish either, but still answered any questions I had left. Professional and dependable. So glad I listened to the reviews on here. You won't regret it! Found my apartment and I am unpacking as I type this. :)

Jamal was a total pro and went above and beyond to find the right place for me. He was sensitive to my small budget, unlike many other brokers, which was very meaningful. I was a total pain and anxious through the process, and he was incredibly patient. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a home in NYC!

I got in touch with Jamal one Friday evening and by Saturday afternoon (that's less than 24 hours notice for anyone keeping score), he had 6 apartments to show me. What's more, every last one of them fit the criteria I had given him (location, size, amenities and, most importantly, rent).

He's a professional, courteous and no pressure guy but will definitely help you think about the pros and cons of an apartment and its location. After I decided I wanted to put in an application for one of the apartments, he laid out the process very clearly and helped make sure all my documents were in order. We met for the lease signing with the landlord and beforehand, Jamal went through the lease with me and made sure everything was clear and that I wasn't giving the landlord my firstborn as a deposit.

From soup to nuts a great experience!

Jamal was great for the following reasons:

I gave several brokers a very detailed, somewhat difficult list of requirements for my next apartment. Because I was on a month-to-month lease to begin with, I had no set move-out date and could afford to wait as long as I wanted. That sort of annoyed many brokers. No rush...

Jamal was great - he drove me around Manhattan in his car while others made us take cabs and the subway. He was extremely good about responding to texts and emails right away. And after showing me 10-20 places, he finally found everything I wanted in a preferred neighborhood for the right price. He walked us through the approval and application process and when it came to negotiating fees and move-in dates he was more than accommodating.

After we signed the lease and paid the fee, he was still quick to respond to texts and emails and see the move-in process all the way through!

I'd 100% recommend Jamal to any of my friends for either renting or purchasing a home. He's a very, very chill guy and will be getting an invite to the housewarming party!

Jamal helped me find an apartment this summer .. In no time! This was really surprising for me since I had been hearing horror stories from friends about house hunting/dealing with brokers in New York City.

He is a very professional and friendly guy who knows exactly whats on your mind. After our first meeting where he showed me a bunch of places, he listened patiently to what liked and disliked. The next meeting turned to be our last for apartment viewing as I instantly fell in love with the first apartment he showed me. The paperwork, lease signing process was smooth and I was able to sign the lease for the place within 3 days of first viewing it. He was also kind enough to arrange a second viewing of the place especially for my fiancée the very next day.

Working with Jamal was a very pleasant experience. Highly recommended!!!!

Jamal responded to my message very quickly, which I was very impressed with. He is very polite and professional, and he listed to everything I had to say, took my preferences into account, and actually suggested a much better solution to my problem. His passion for Real Estate is clear, and it is always nice to find someone as friendly as him.

If you want a broker that is not pushy at all, and will work his hardest for you, Jamal is the one to call.

He is the best broker I've ever dealt with, and I can only say good things about him. I will be recommending him to every friend and family member and definitely look forward to working with him in the near future.

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP JAMAL!!!
