James was, by far, the BEST agent I have worked with thus far. I have worked with realtor agents since my junior year of highschool (2003-2004) and I have looked for homes to buy (and am a home owner) and to rent. I, obviously, found apartments and homes to live in but always had such a difficult time with every single realtor except you. James was always punctual, in-tune with our needs, patient, understanding and, lastly and most importantly, mindful of my budget! I will be looking for him again when I am ready to sell my house in Jersey and get a new one in NYC or if moving, again, for whatever reason. :) - Jennifer Kim

I enjoyed working with James Winn of Elegran Real Estate and Development during my search for a Manhattan apartment this summer. He is a consummate professional with a laser beam knowledge of both emerging and established Manhattan neighborhoods. He helped me focus on particular areas I found appealing and did an enormous amount of homework and preparation before each visit. He was patient and flexible during my search and maintained a wonderful optimism. His concerted efforts certainly helped to make my apartment search far less daunting. - Janice Davison

Mr. Winn is very professional and trust worthy. He understood what I was looking for completely and I found my dream building just for one day trip. He was good at organizing schedules. He answered the question in a second. Thanks James. I enjoy my new life now!! - Hiroyuki Aihara

James was absolutely fantastic. He was instrumental in finding us a new apartment. My husband and I aren't from NYC and only had a weekend to find a place to live. James, who is very organized, pulled together great options in our price range and set up all the appointments. He even came with us to all the tours and was a voice of reason when it came time to make that final decision. - Alex and Alyssa Georg

I first contacted James in April 2014 to educate myself about the New York City apartment rental process. He was prompt returning my phone calls, very efficient answering my e-mails and made sure that I understood the paperwork required to secure a lease for recent collegte graduates. Every few weeks, he sent me updated listings in an effort to find an affordable apartment in the right neighborhood for my daughter and her 2 roommates. I found him to be very courteous, professional and trustworthy which are extremely important attributes in the Real Estate industry. I would not hesitate to refer James to anyone who is looking to rent or purchase New York City real estate. - Karen Caracausa

My wife and I recently worked with James Winn from Elegran to find a new rental apartment. James quickly identified available apartments that met our expectations. He exemplified professionalism and provided market expertise. For example, we found an apartment and we were interested in signing a two year lease. However, the management company had a 5% percent rent escalator in year two. James advised rental rates typically increase 3% per annum. He suggested we sign a one year lease which would allow us flexibility in addition to renewing the lease at a lower rate the following year. We took James' advice and signed a one year lease. We would recommend working with James and would hire James as our broker in the future. - Mark Andrews

It was great having James as our real estate agent. We were on a tight timeline to find an apartment and he went above/beyond to find us the best options that fit our criteria - even helped guide our research during a holiday when we reached out to him for input. In the end - we found the right apartment within our schedule. He is very professional and really listens to his clients. We always felt that he had our best interest at heart. Just as an extra note - upon hearing that our apartment might not have the window screens that we initially thought would be there, James went out of his way to buy us a couple :) now that's something. We highly recommend James.
