Joe Messina


After graduating with a BA in Marketing and Finance from NYU's Stern School of Business, Joe started his own marketing, printing and design company in Chelsea. He quickly found an apartment on 26th Street where he still resides today. It is his passion for New York and seasoned knowledge of downtown that inspired him to become a real estate agent. "I want to share my insight and experience with my clients, and find them a home they love as much as I love mine."

Having dealt with individuals from all walks of life in his nightlife and marketing business, Joe developed the patience, poise and people skills that allow him to listen to what a client wants, and present them with their best options. "Whether it be planning a party or event or more recently, looking for a home, each person has a different budget, taste and vision. My job is to provide the right product for their needs, along with superior service that will make their experience memorable." The referrals upon which Joe's business has always been built is a testament to his dedication and success.

Capitalizing on the extensive resources and support at COMPASS, Joe enjoys helping everyone from business professionals to college students achieve their unique real estate goals. Specializing in his hometown neighborhood of Chelsea, he is extremely well in tune with the area's real estate market, and the exceptional lifestyle the area affords. "The diversity in people, food, architecture, and the sheer convenience of being so close to everything such as the High Line, Chelsea Piers, the Meatpacking District and Times Square, are among the many reasons I love where I live and work!"

First off, I've been living in NYC for a decade in 4 different apartments. I can honestly state that Joe was the best broker I've ever come across. Besides being knowledgable on the current market he sets himself apart by his work ethic, professionalism and honesty. I felt like I didn't have to worry about a thing...Joe would take care of it. The only reason why I didn't end up renting from Joe was because there was a lease break in my building.


I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Joe Messina is my first choice for all apartment searching moving forward. I needed to move with my 2 kids to a nice size 3 bedroom apartment in Chelsea in a timely manner and Joe was courteous, attentive, responsive, and most importantly not pushy. He knows the market here and i'm very happy with my new apartment. I definitely recommend Joe for all your real estate needs.

Joe was really great! He wasn't pushy & worked really hard to find the right place for me! He was very knowledgeable about the market and without him I would've never found a place as great as what I have now.

Joe is good people. He worked hard for us, and really cared about finding the right place for us, rather than just pushing something on us.
