Jay was a pleasure to work with. He was punctual, professional, and worked hard to find options that met my criteria. He was easy to work with, flexible, and accommodating.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Jay knows the nyc real estate market well and was great to work with. We had a detailed discussion about my apartment search. He narrowed my criteria down to the top five places. Which made my search less stressful and saved me time.

I rented an apartment from this agent.

To his credit, Jay was always quick to respond. That was about where the positives ended though. He showed me a few apartments, including one in a building that I was already negotiating for a unit in. I let him know that I was likely going with the unit that I had been offered before talking to him, and he demanded a 1-month broker fee for showing the building. I told him that he had no claim to any kind of fee for showing me a building that I was already negotiating for a different apartment in, and he threatened legal action. He then had Spire's legal counsel call me to try to get the fee out of me, and I explained the situation to them. They must have realized that they had no case, as they called the building management company to tell them not to rent to me. Credit to River2River--they told Spire that I had been in negotiation before Jay showed me anything. Since then, I haven't heard anything, but I hope nobody else has to deal with this sleaze the way I did.

Jay took us to a great apartment where we very quickly signed for an amazing 1BR. He knew a lot about the property and was very helpful. The entire process was very smooth.

He is very nice. Even though i asked him to show other apartments that we did not talk about before, he kindly took us to those apartments and he regularly checked available apartments and let us know ASAP . Thank you so much Jay!

Jay was very responsive and timely and was very knowledgeable in answering my questions. He also wasn't overly aggressive which is great because you need to feel like you can trust your broker. I ultimately stayed in my old building but I would definitely work with Jay again.
