Joann was the only broker I dealt with who took the time to call and understand what we were looking for, and also explain the ins and outs of the NYC rental market. She took us through all of our options, was upfront and open about fees and fee structure, and asked fantastic questions that we didn’t think of when we were looking at apartments. She worked with our difficult schedules and was available on short notice to show us apartments both on weekends and during the week after we left work. Overall, after multiple moves in NYC over the years, working with Joann was the best real estate broker experience my wife and I have had. - Joe & Christina S.
As a parent, living out of state, and having a child who was seeking housing in New York City, I initially felt at a disadvantage. I wanted my son to be taken care of, but I was not able to be there myself. I wanted my child to have the best housing, in the convenient location near to his school/job, and at the best possible price. Joann not only found my son a beautiful apartment in one day, in a luxury 24 hour doorman building, but at a great price too. She was available by phone, and email, every time I needed a question answered or help with his paperwork. She handled the necessary documents and facilitated the securing of the apartment. She made the whole process smooth and painless. I would recommend her highly! Best Realtor in New York City for sure! - Terry P.
Before I met Joann, I had absolutely no good apartment prospects. I had looked on various apartment search websites, used a few brokers, and was still unable to find a decent apartment. The brokers I spoke to on the apartment websites had a long response time, and some of them didn't respond at all, or after the apartment I inquired about was already off the market. The other brokers dragged me around all day just to show me disappointment apartments. Joann was truly a lifesaver. She was very persistent in meeting up with me and promised to show me the best apartments; she definitely did not disappoint. She showed me multiple units in various buildings in the area that I chose, and at the end of the day I was struggling to choose an apartment because I had loved all the options so much. She made the application process smooth and went the extra mile to make sure I moved in on the date that I wanted to. She also spoke to the leasing office/building on my behalf so I had less things to worry about. Working with Joann was a wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend her to everyone I know. - Grace L.
Joann is the first and only real estate agent I've ever worked with. I had to find the apartment while I was outside of the United States. With 12 hours of time differences, Joann was very accommodating and helpful in helping me to find the apartment that I currently reside in. She is very accessible, both through phone and email. She helped me to check out the physical locations of the apartment (there were A LOT of different buildings that I had my eyes on) and sent me pictures and videos as I was unable to make it to the location. Very diligent and dedicated person. Love her, highly recommend!
Joann是我第一个也是唯一一个有过合作的房产中介人。在找纽约住房时我人在国内，没有办法去看那些公寓。她帮我跑了所有的地方，而且有不厌其烦的发图片和视频给我。我当时人在中国，与纽约有12小时的时差，但还是很容易就能联系到她。不管什么时候打过去她几乎都会马上接电话，让人很安心。很尽职尽责的一个人，强力推荐！ - Phoebe Y.
When you work with Joann you have a savvy and knowledgable expert in your corner. She helped me navigate the complex world of NYC real estate and find a great place that I love. - Alex F.
