Call me for all your rental needs. The ONLY AGENT with my own KEY TO GRAMERCY PARK I can show you that neighborhood from the inside. A 12 year veteran of Manhattan I know all the neighborhoods of this city and can help find the perfect fit for you.  With knowledge of Brooklyn for over 25 years, I can help you find your ideal home.

As a commercial property inspector, I often have the inside scoop about properties coming to market, or undermarketed. I see more apartments per week then any other agent you could work with. I have the background to help you identify value and the understanding of the marketplace to put you at an advantage.

Why settle for the below average experience and the constant run around with other agents, when you can get more then you pay for with me.

Call for a brief conversation, so I can get you sorted into that fantastic New York City apartment today.

My Fee is 15%

Please be serious and have your rental packet in order. If you need to know what paperwork to pull together, just ask. I am more than happy to help you understand what you need and why you need it.

I could not have been happier with my experience with Joe Cogan. When I came to our first meeting he was prepared with 10 or 15 properties that we could narrow down together. In addition to pointing out properties, he gave me a general education of the New York Real Estate market which was critical in guiding my search.

Joe served as a great asset when visiting specific properties. He asked the leasing agents questions that I would never have asked on my own, the answers of which were very helpful in finding the perfect apartment. With the amount of time Joe devotes to your search, he makes you feel like you are his most important client.

Joe proved invaluable in helping negotiate the lease. His presence provides immediate credibility and lets landlords know that you are not to be taken advantage of. Without him, I might have signed a lease adverse to my interest. With him, I was able to knock $1000's of dollars off of the annual rent.

I would highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for an NYC apartment.

I dealt with a lot of brokers during my apartment search and without a doubt Joseph Cogan was the best by a long shot. I would recommend him to anyone in the future as he was easily the only broker I felt like dealing with during my apartment search.

Before meeting with Joe, my roommate and I had met with 5+ other brokers and seen 10+ apartments. Each time, the other brokers would show us apartments wayyy out of our price range or the exact opposite of what we were looking for. Joe knew exactly what I wanted before even meeting with me. He listened to me and showed me three great apartments. He got the price down on the one we wanted and negotiated for us to move in early at no additional cost.

The brokers fee is high but that is just how it is with brokers. He did a ton of work and found us a place that we had not seen. It was totally worth it to us because we were still waiting to hear back from another apartment and our lease was running out at our old place in two weeks.

We had a great experience working with Joe to search for a 1-bedroom rental on the Upper East side. He is organized and knowledgable, listened carefully to our needs and offered his expertise on the nuances of the market, allowing us to make a fully informed decision. We were able to view over 10 apartments in under 3 hours, thanks to his careful planning and methodical approach; of these, we would have been happy in almost half of the choices. Plus, he was a pleasure to chat with and his company made trudging around Manhattan in the pouring rain for 3 hours much more enjoyable. He also had a careful eye and insight into situations that might enable bargaining power, and I was confident that he would have been able to secure a great deal for us. While we ultimately ended up going with a different apartment through work, I would recommend Joe to any of my friends or colleagues who are looking to rent or buy.

Joseph did a fantastic job showing my girlfriend and I a wide range of apartments giving us a great selection of choices. I appreciated that he did not pigeon hole us to one style of apartments. The choices were well thought out for what we had told him our interests and preferences were. Additionally, Joe was extremely attentive and responsive over both email and phone.

While we ultimately did not rent an apartment with Joseph (personal choice we had to make, not reflective of what he showed us) we would recommend him to anyone.

This guy's the best. Listens and doesn't waste your time, showed me apartments within my parameters and price range, and really knows a lot about neighborhoods. Also helps that he's a property inspector, was candid with me about what we were seeing. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting an efficient, pleasant, apartment hunting experience.

Joseph responded to my email quickly. We chatted about what I wanted and he didn't waste my time. He showed me 4 apartments that fit my parameters, including the listing I found here. It was a tough choice but Joe was patient and helped me with the pros/cons of each apartment and then was super helpful in navigating all the paperwork needed to rent an apartment. The next time I move, I'm going straight to Joe!
