I leased a studio in Murray Hill with Jason Polanco. He''s very professional, and was especially eager to go the extra mile to help me secure a place on a tight deadline while I was out-of-pocket during the signing process. Here''s why you should entrust Jason with your rental search:
1) He is super friendly and down to earth, conscientious (he remembered a few days later a concern I had about one of the many places we visited), respectful, VERY patient, and detail-minded.
2) He is lightning-quick in responding to communication.
3) He showed me a number of apartments, all in my budget and according to what I was looking for.
4) Jason was upfront with the price and concessions he could get me, and tried his best to get me the lowest possible rent.
5) Manhattan Realty Group has good working relations with the landlords and leasing offices around the area.
6) Their staff are very gregarious and not at all aggressive or pushy.
With NY rentals, the more transparent, timely, and hassle-free, the better. I cannot imagine a smoother real estate experience, nor a better agent. Go with Jason and MRG especially if you are looking in the Midtown East area!
Erez was fantastic to work with - very responsive, hard working and knowledgeable. Within a few days of contacting him he had found us exactly what we were looking for, and in our price range!! I highly recommend him.
This review is for Jamie Fields at Manhattan Realty Group.
I highly recommend Jamie Fields to anybody looking for a diligent, knowledgeable, kind, and trustworthy NYC broker. I worked with Jamie because she was recommended to me by a friend who had a very positive experience with her. Jamie was extremely responsive and helpful from the start! We called her and she immediately called me back and walked us through the whole process over the phone. My roommate and I were based in Boston and had no knowledge of the NYC rental market so she was a great resource to have and was patient in explaining everything to us. We drove to Boston just for one day and only had that day to find an apartment. Jamie took us to 8 apartments and the last one we saw was our dream apartment (and even slightly under budget). We were able to see exactly what we could get within our budget as Jamie mostly only showed us apartments in Murray Hill (the neighborhood we wanted) and also showed us a few other options in a different neighborhood.
After signing the lease, Jamie continued to help us with additional questions we had about moving into NYC and was a great resource to have throughout the entire process. Overall she is an amazing broker to work with and we would highly recommend her to anybody!
Being a novice to the whole NYC apartment market I was definitely nervous going into my search. However, I had the amazing fortune to come across Jason Polanco. Jason listened to what I wanted, my needs and my time constraints. He was so friendly and helpful, always answering any and all questions I had no matter if they seemed ridiculous or not. He came up with suggestions and sent me floor plans to help me. He definitely was on my side and wanted to help me find my new home. What set Jason apart from any other broker in my eyes was he called me to tell me about an apt he knew I would love that had everything I was looking for and was in my budget only problem was he wasn''t in the area at the time to show it to me. However, this did not stop him instead he had an associate of his meet me, Erez (shout out to Erez who was also wonderful!) so I wouldn''t miss out. Ultimately, I got that apt and I couldn''t be more grateful. Jason helped me and I definitely recommend anyone needing help with their search to look him up, he''s awesome!
