I couldn't be happier with my experience working with Jon to find our new apartment. First and foremost, it was very apparent from the onset that unlike other brokers I've worked with, Jon actually took a vested interest in helping us find the "right" fit for both our preferences and budget. Overall, Jon was very professional and clearly has strong relationships with the management companies in Manhattan. Further, he was valuable resource for information, and gave straightforward answers to our questions, including "is this apartment a good value for what they're asking?" Even if the answer was no.

We started looking with a relatively short amount of time to move into the new place (~2 weeks), and even after being relatively hard to work with (committing/reneging on a particular unit), Jon was determined to help us find the right place. He made himself available after hours to accommodate my schedule and also showed me several units during lunch. In the end, we ended up finding the perfect apartment with tons of sq. footage and great views of the city for price that's hard to believe given what I was paying before for a lower quality apartment.

In short, next time I'm in the market for a new apartment, I'll be giving Jon a call.

Jon was very helpful and responsive throughout our apartment search. He helped us to secure our first choice apartment despite competing applications. We would use him again.

I can't say enough in praise of Jon. He was very pleasant, professional, savvy and totally dedicated to finding me an apartment. After weeks of looking I was getting very anxious about the lack of decent properties and availability, but once I got in touch with Jon I was instantly reassured. He was aware of properties that were not yet on the market and, once he had showed me one of these that I LOVED, he managed to negotiate a better deal with the landlord and got me qualified to rent the property (which was in an extremely in-demand building with a lot of competition). If you are going with a broker in NYC, you really need one with great connections in the widest array of quality buildings and solid negotiation skills, and Jon is the best of the best (and I don't say that lightly). A-1!!!

I highly recommend Jon, he is a great and reliable broker. He was very helpful during the whole process, from the application form to getting the keys to move-in. He was always available to speak and clarify any of my doubts. I am from Brazil and this is the first time I look for apartments in the city, as such I had many questions. He is a nice person, easy to deal with, very objective and focused to get things done in the best possible way for both parts. He helped me a lot to speed up the process as I had a tight schedule to move-in. It is hard to find a good apartment in Manhattan, especially in the region I have chosen to look for it and Jon was able to show me 2 great apartments, and both of them had very good prices too. It was pleasure to work with him. You can really count on him to find a good apartment and make a great deal.

Jon was a pleasure to work with. My girlfriend and I had a pleasant experience and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment. He was very professional, efficient and understanding of what we were looking for. He even showed us apartments that other brokers had no idea of. He proved he knows his stuff and does as he says. Thanks Jon!

Jon was great to work with! He was very quick to respond and understood exactly what we were looking for. He didn't waste our time showing us apartments that didnt fit all of our criteria and called us immediately when the right one came along. I would highly recommend working with him!

Best broker we worked with and we had an absolutely amazing experience!! We rented the first apartment he showed us which was EXACTLY what we wanted and true to the apartments he posts on this site! He was super responsive to our first inquiry, answered our questions honestly, and when we shared with him what we were looking for he made sure that the apartment he showed us met all of the things we wanted! We had terrible experiences with other brokers who were dishonest and showed us apartments that didn't meet any of the criteria we were looking for AT ALL! The management of our building also told us that they were showing the apartment exclusively with Jon/Metropolitan before they were showing it more broadly so we got to see the apartment before anyone else and rented it on the spot. Highly recommend working with him, was incredibly refreshing to have such a simple process after working with others!

Jon was incredibly helpful in our (first-time) apartment search. Most importantly, he was efficient and completed our entire deal within a week. As full-time students, Jon was able to work around our schedules to secure us the West Village apartment that we wanted. He is personable, communicative, and always quickly responsive. Jon gets straight down to business— he even negotiated the broker's fee! Would definitely recommend him to a fellow classmate / fellow New Yorker!

Jon was easy going, very helpful and great to work with - I highly recommend recruiting him to help your search! Thanks Jon!

Jon was incredibly easy to work with and so so helpful. He was honest about fees, understood what I wanted and got me into (and eventually confirmed!) an apartment before anyone else in New York. He was also key in negotiating the terms of my lease, which really was really make or break in the process.

No one wants to pay a broker fee, but Jon is worth every penny. You would be crazy not to work with him!

Jon was such a pleasure to work with. In the awful process of finding and then applying for apartments in NYC, everything was a breeze working with him. He got my boyfriend & I into the apartment we were dreaming of. He was professional, polite and friendly... only showing us apartments we were interested in and not wasting anyones time. He knows the business and knows how to get things done. Highly recommend!

Jon was extremely efficient and polite. He showed me only apartments I was interested in, and didn't waste my time. He was never aggressive and pushy like other brokers. He was patient and waited until I made my decision.

Jon was extremely helpful throughout the entire apartment search process. My roommate and I rented the third apartment that Jon showed to us, streamlining the process and reducing the overall headache that accompanies apartment searching. Jon also eased the process by communicating effectively with our apt's management company and even came to my office in midtown to collect paperwork when I was unable to leave during the day. Highly recommend working with this broker!

Overall we had a great experience with Jon. Being that we were new to the city and first time renters we needed someone to guide us through the process which he did. He navigated us step by step and showed us apartments only in our criteria. We are very happy with the outcome and couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Jon.

Jon was very helpful with our search for an apartment. After seeing over 15 apartments with other brokers, we found the apartment we were looking for the first time meeting with Jon. We highly recommend him!
