“We could not have asked for a better broker. Jacob was proactive from our first meeting. He expertly guided us through every step of the process, and his calm demeanor gave us great confidence in him and built the trust we needed to successfully purchase our new apartment. He brings depth and breadth of knowledge of big-picture financial trends to his work. We would recommend Jacob without any reservation to anyone looking for a first-rate, delightful real estate professional, highly skilled in navigating the competitive NYC market.” –B.K. & J.B., Buyer“Jacob is a thorough, conscientious, and highly personable agent whom I recommend without hesitation. When we first sat down he had already done his homework and had a number of selling strategies in mind. By the time we hit the market a few weeks later, his presentation was impressive and fully mature, resulting in a quick sale (well above asking). Jacob is sensitive and trustworthy in handling either side of a transaction. Easily the best, most professional agent I've ever worked with, and I'm very happy with the results.” –D.J., Seller“As first-time sellers in NYC, we were very apprehensive, but with Jacob's support everything went unbelievably well. His knowledge of our neighborhood and perception of the best features of our condo gave us confidence that he could find the right buyer. Through close consultation after receiving an offer he understood our position and effectively negotiated very favorable terms for us. We were also impressed with the brochure made for the condo and the quality of the staff we met who produced it. We highly recommend Jacob and his excellent professional skills.” –J.C., Seller“Jacob Miles is an incredibly helpful and knowledgeable real estate agent. He was available 24/7 to answer questions and schedule showings. Jacob consistently went above and beyond what was expected of him – he had print outs with information for each showing he took us to, reports on the market for different neighborhoods, and he always followed up after appointments. He was extremely professional and an absolute joy to work with. I highly recommend Jacob to anyone looking to buy or sell in NYC.” –M.D., Buyer“My experience with Jacob has been excellent. Being from overseas with no contacts in NY, he has assisted me tremendously in the purchase and management of my condo there and have no hesitation is recommending him.” –A.S., Buyer & Landlord“I was under pressure to locate an apartment in New York City with no time to spare and I was simultaneously starting an extremely stressful, time consuming job. If one is familiar with New York, then they understand how it is nearly impossible to locate a place quickly, especially if one does not have endless hours of free time and an enduring patience. Jacob came to the rescue, expediting the search and sign process beyond my belief, and doing so in a stress free manner. Before being recommended to use Jacob's services, I had attempted to work with a few other realtors, and therefore I can say the following: Jacob's professionalism is unparalleled, he knows the city like the back of his hand, and he has an unwavering ambition to help land his clients the place for which they are searching. At the end of my current lease, without a doubt, I will be calling Jacob. I would recommend you do the same.” –G.S., Tenant
