I worked with several agents during my last apartment search and Jon was one of the best. He is refreshingly honest, personable, and has a true appreciation for the NY real estate market. He only showed me apartments that fit my basic criteria and quickly gained an appreciation for what my priorities were (ie., neighborhood vs. sq footage, etc). I ended up finding my dream apartment through Jon and he jumped through hoops to ensure I got it before anyone else. Looking for a new place can be really stressful, especially if you are on a tight timeline, and Jon really did make the process seamless by quickly earning my trust and not putting any pressure on me to make a decision. He's a real professional and someone I'd gladly recommend to friends and family.

I rented an apartment from this agent.

Jon was great to work with! We talked on the phone for about half an hour to go over everything I wanted for my new apartment. We went out one afternoon and he showed me a bunch of really great options including the place I rented! I was really nervous about the whole process but Jon knew the answers to all of my questions and made the whole thing so easy. Definitely recommending him to my friends. Great restaurant recommendations too!

I did not deal with Jon directly, I was dealing with a younger colleague of his. I was not particularly impressed with the service: although the properties fitted most of my criteria, they did not fit them all. I felt that I was pushed by them to take any apartment as what I was looking for apparently did not exist in my price range in NYC (which proved to be incorrect...). Also, there was one apartment which I almost took, but I decided to drop it when I realised that the agent was trying to get commission from both the company managing the apartment and me (bringing it over the already high 15% level). Not a great way to do business in my opinion guys...

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

I was by no means Jonathan's largest client given my budget - but you never would have know it given how tirelessly he worked to find me a perfect apartment.
