Jonathan Ney Photo

After graduating from the University of Michigan, Jonathan moved to Manhattan and quickly became involved with the real estate market.  Jonathan plays on the same team as his real estate clients.  Rather than "selling" clients, he partners with them to help guide, inform, and inspire them to make the best real estate decisions based on their needs and parameters. Jonathan prides himself on his attentive service skills as well as his strong work ethic and straightforward, no-pressure style.

The tremendous enthusiasm, dedication, and diligence Jonathan brings to every real estate transaction gives his clients and their referrals reason to continue work with him time after time.  His sharp attention to detail and unmatched commitment to helping buyers, sellers and renters excel in today's complex NYC market make him one of the most enjoyable agents to work with.
 
As a resident of the Upper East Side, he enjoys his proximity to Central Park, fantastic museums, and some of the finest restaurants and shops in the city. Outside of his busy workdays, Jonathan and his wife enjoy exercising, exploring the city with their dog, attending art shows, going out to eat, and skiing during the winter months.

Jonathan was INCREDIBLE! He came highly recommended from Spire, and after doing business with him I understand why. He was on time and fully excited about seeing the available apartments. Jonathan showed us 5 different palaces and not one of them was sub par! He kept the search within our price range. After choosing which apartment he helped us understand our contract and everything that we needed to know about renting our first apartment. I am happy to say we signed and are now looking forward to moving into our new apartment.
Thanks again Johnathan!

We had a great experience! Ramin Danialian and Jonathan Ney were our brokers and got us an awesome apartment two weeks from initial contact to lease signing. Our timeline would have probably been one week, however, we started as a group of four needing four guarantors and eventually going to just two people. Honestly, it was a bit of a clusterf**k, but Ramin and Jon were always kind, patient and happy to show us more apartments no matter what our situation. Most importantly, we felt they were really looking out for us personally and financially unlike most brokers in NYC who just want to get the client into any apartment as fast as possible in order to get their commission. Ramin and Jon made sure we were in a good neighborhood, a comfortable apartment for our needs and at a good price. One apartment which was a "reach" for us in a really nice building would have cost us $600 in application fees, but Ramin and Jon discouraged us from applying because they didn't think we would get approved and we would have just wasted that money. They did all this despite the fact that they would have potentially earned a much larger commission than what they ended up getting in the end. These guys are really trying to build a business by bringing something you don't often see in the NYC real estate world: HONESTY.

Broker was very responsive and truthful about apartment availabilities, a very welcome contrast to many other brokers I emailed about apartments here in NY.

Jonathan Ney came to my rescue during my apartment search. Things went smoothly from my first experience with Jonathan. I was not carted around all neighborhoods and shown things that did not interest me. Rather, my search was custom tailored to my own likes which ultimately resulted in me finding a true gem of an apartment. His follow through and diligence was unmatched compared to the other brokers I had previously worked with. My experience was drama free and I was definitely in the right hands. I would not hesitate to contact Jonathan or recommend him to anyone searching for an apartment.

HIGHLY recommend you work with Johnathan! He was nothing like the average NYC broker that shows you a single apartment and then falls off the face of the earth. He was easy to contact through email, texts or phone and was available and accomodating to our crazy work schedules. He had lots of great places that met all our needs and was honest about what the process would be like. Thank goodness for Johnathan or else we'd probably still be searching for a place to live!

This is one of those situations where I actually didn't mind paying a brokers fee. I feel like Jonathan really earned it which if you have worked with other brokers you would know that is not typical.

Jonathan was really able to help me where most other brokers were glad to give up or toss me away. I have issues with my credit and instead of just not working with me, he did everything he could to help and ended up finding me a great apartment where I can live with my roommate. He was always responsive, from the moment we started working with him until the end. I wish we had found him sooner, it would have saved me from a lot of heartache of dealing with brokers who really didn't care about me.

Spoke with Jonathan on Friday. Arranged to meet one of his colleagues on Saturday at 2pm in midtown. He was a no show, and did not respond to calls or texts. Caused a large inconvenience and wasted time. Will not look at apartments with Jonathan again.
