I'll keep this brief; this agent is a fraud. I signed the lease and submitted all of the required payments, they cashed my checks and the next day the landlord called to inform me that the apt I had signed for was now being sold instead. They were completely unprofessional and "miscommunicated" with me many times, even showing me the wrong apt until the day that I signed for it. The experience was a nightmare.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Joe was very responsive from the first message I sent him. He showed up on time with access to the apartments that I wanted to see. Additionally, he was able to show me another apartment that I was interested in last minute. After seeing an apartment that I wanted to proceed with, he sent me the application materials promptly and was able to answer my questions via e-mail and text. It was very nice to work with someone so organized and responsive. I recommend Joe!

Joe was very helpful and expeditious in getting me moved into an apartment, but I would never work with him or his management company again. They tried to wrongfully withhold my security deposit plus $150 from me. Joe owed me $150 from our initial signing agreement and dodged me for about 3 months, while promising through text message several times that he would have the money for me the upcoming week. It was only when I confronted him outside my apartment while he was showing apartments to other people that he paid up, but even then he tried to make excuses not to. And when the management team withheld my security deposit for no reason, I sent them a letter threatening to sue and they paid up right away.

All of this is 100 percent true, please be wary when working with Joe and/or his management team.

Brian,

I am so sorry for the trouble you have had with landlord, But will all due respect I hope you understand whatever business you have with the landlord is only with him directly and has nothing to do with me even though I found you that apartment innately.

Again I am sorry for the trouble you have had, I wish best of luck!

Joe was amazing. He was very helpful and helped me and my girlfriend find an apartment. Finding any New York apartment is hard well Joe made it easy. He was straightforward and honest he did not give us the run around that most agents do. He was great and I would recommend him to anyone!!

Joe is without a doubt the most honest, trustworthy broker I've ever encountered. When I first spoke to him, he warned me the apartment was quite small, and would I be alright with that? That's when I first felt I could trust him, because I don't think I had ever heard a real estate professional outright use the word "small" before, it's always "cozy" or "cute" or something. I could tell I was dealing with an honest, upfront guy who wasn't going to mislead me or waste my time or his.

When I showed up to meet Joe and see the apartment, I found that the apartment was larger, and in general nicer, than I had expected! A very unusual experience, and a refreshing one! Joe was incredibly knowledgable about the building and apartment, he was able to answer all my questions quickly and with absolute certainty. He was also very respectful of the current tenant of the apartment.

I had a very good idea of what I wanted, and had shown up prepared to apply immediately. When I told Joe that I wanted to apply, he was completely honest about the current apartment application status (he had sent some out, but none had been completed) without pressuring me in any way. We went to his office to fill out the application, and he stayed there to answer any questions I had, and let me use his computer to print out some documents that I had neglected to bring (I guess I wasn't FULLY prepared). He was incredibly helpful in this as well, again without any pressure to rush.

I would recommend Joe without any hesitation. He's professional, responsive, well-prepared, and, most importantly, completely above-board and upfront.

Joe was a great agent to work with. After initially contacting him about an apartment that was quickly taken off the market, he contacted me about an identical one in the building and was able to show me the apartment the next day. Not only was he professional and courteous, but he was also sympathetic to an unexpected situation with my guarantor and assisted me in finding ways to secure the apartment despite that. I would highly recommend finding an apartment through Joe.

Very pleased with the communication and professionalism of Joel. He was helpful and polite, with quick responses to all my inquires--and there were many! Ultimately I did not end up renting from Joel, but he was a pleasure to work with and I would welcome the opportunity to rent from him in the future.

Joel was very responsive and met with me several times to look at apartments. He worked with me to get me approved for an apartment too. I ended up finding something else but it was a good experience all around.

This is a honest broker. Joel was quick to respond to my initial request, set up a same day viewing, gathered my paperwork efficiently and had an apartment secured for me by the next day. After signing the lease, he was even kind enough to drive me to a train line that would take me right home- which was awesome because after weeks of apartment hunting, I was pooped!I've already told friends who are looking for places that he should be their guy : )

Spoke with Joel twice about an apartment I was interested in. He confirmed both times that the space was available for showing. It wasn't until I waited outside for 20 minutes that he let me know the apartment had already been rented. He was very apologetic, but it was still a huge waste of my time. He also said he'd send me further listings, but never did. Overall, a really frustrating experience.

Joe Perl Responded:
Hi Rose,

Sorry again for that and making you wait 20 min outside,

I tell you what happened, when you called me to set up a viewing I told that there is a application in for that place so there is no point to set up a viewing cuz i did not want to waste your time. but the next day after we realized that applicant is not qualified. I called you right away to set up a time to show the apt later that evening, but meanwhile that 1st applicant found a Co signer and got approved and signed lease
