I first started working in a family business leasing retail space inNew York,New Jersey and Florida. I loved all aspects of real estate, finding run down buildings ,renovating them for lease and sales. It's always exciting meeting fascinating people and making lifetime relationships. I help manage over 10 buildings in NYC and New Jersey. and enjoy helping find that perfect space.

Jonathan is hands down one of the premier brokers in NYC. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable of the market, he will go to bat for you in whatever way possible; all while maintaining complete transparency. I would highly recommend giving Jonathan a call to discuss your options. You will not regret it!
After seeing all the positive reviews here, I decided to call him. Johnathan is a really responsible person I have ever met when I am hunting an apartment. He always responses very fast with phone call and is straightforward. I have contacted lots of brokers in LA and NY but he is definitely the most professional and responsible person. I am an international student and it’s hard for me to find a good apartment because I don’t have a U.S-citizen guarantor. But he tries his best to help me out and I got the good apartment I love. Whoever wants to work with a nice and professional broker he is the one. I cannot thank him enough!
Loved working with Jonathan - highly recommend. Found the perfect apartment that I love.
He was efficient with time, dependable, there for advice and helped with the move. Always call to get ahold of him and ask him any questions.
Thanks again, Jonathan.
I had the privilege of working with Jonathon to find my apartment in NYC. I worked with other realtors before him but Jonathon was truly the best. He was honest and straightforward with me and always picked up the phone when I called. He made this process as easy as it could possibly be. I highly recommend Jonathon and will be using him to help me find all of my future apartments as well.
Never responded to my inquiry.
Give this guy a call. Itâs tough to find a broker whoâs there for YOU not just wants to sell you and move on.He put my mind at ease within seconds and was so personable. Told me straight up the positives and negatives of the unit. Didnât pressure me or rush me (believe me thatâs rare in nyc) and a real personable guy.he was also VERY clear. iâm still in the search process but i know exactly what ill be expected to pay upfront with him.bottom line. no BS. nice guy - hit him up
This guy will be a fighter in your corner.My boyfriend and I came across a listing of Jonathan's from craigslist. He responded within an hour and set up a time for us to see the listing and others that were similar within a few blocks the next day. Jonathan asked us our preferences, and apartment must have's - and the apartments he showed us did not disappoint. The second unit we saw was a 1BDR in Lincoln Square steps from Central Park and we knew we had to have it. From this point on is where he really shined. Jonathan immediately set up an appointment with the building management, coached us in how to best show off our candidacy, stood by as we filled out the application, walked with us to the bank, bought us coffee while management ran our credit report, and celebrated with us after we were approved - all within a 5 hour turn around. Really WOW. We had seen at least 20 other apartments by this point with other building brokers, and couldn't believe how much Jonathan made us feel like he was fighting FOR US, instead of trying to squeeze every last cent out of us (almost every other nyc broker it feels like).Really, we can't verbalize how much he was an advocate for us as the rental applicants. As a professional, he ranks far superior in the honesty department, and with empathy and kindness that is hard to find in this city. We thank you. We love our apartment. We couldn't recommend this guy more.-Deborah + Hugo
he did not find anything for me.
Jon Schnapp is an extremely thorough and straight forward agent. He listened to my needs and took them into serious consideration when showing me various units. He was helpful and continued to try to get my roommate and me a good deal in any apartment we looked at. I had an apartment fall through and called Jon in the morning, and he had an apartment for me that afternoon. I strongly recommend him as an agent to anyone looking for an apartment. I have worked with a lot of agents, and he is by far the most efficient and one of the best agents I have work with.
Jonathan was very responsive with all our requests and actually listened to our requirements for apartments and showed us everything we were looking forward. He was very efficient and prompt with the entire application and lease process
Jon was very helpful in finding a place for me, definitely has the best exclusives and seems the most knowledgeable broker I worked with. I highly recommend using Jon as a broker
Jonathan was very professional and direct in his approach. He was thoughtful and, most importantly, listened to my requirements. Jonathan ensured that I was prepared to sign a lease immediately. Every apartment that he showed me had all the requirements I requested and some that I did not know I wanted. Ultimately, his relationships ensured that I was first in line for a fantastic apartment in the West Village. I highly recommend using Jonathan to anyone who is serious about finding a good apartment.
Jonathan schnapp was very helpfull in every way possible. He was available around the clock, if you need to rent a apartment i would go through him every time!!!
Jonathan was great to work with!He helped me find an apartment within 24 hours. He was honest about my initial inquiry and after speaking with me, found me something better that suited my needs. I am so glad to have found Jonathan in the rental market here in NYC!
Out of all the brokers I've spoken with and worked with, Jonathan was by far the best. He listened to everything I was asking for and was honest with me from the start. Apartment hunting can be a very stressful process, but Jonathan made the process seamless and made me feel confident that he had my best interests at heart. He's very timely and organized. I would highly recommend working with him, he's truly a gem.
Jonathan is absolutely great. I was really stressed out about finding an apartment when I found out I'd be relocating to NYC for work, but Jonathan made things much easier. He found me a great apartment in the neighborhood of my choice on the first day of my apartment search. I definitely recommend him!
Jonanthan did a great job for me finding a fantastic apartment. He is a great broker and has a lot of NYC market knowledge. He showed me a lot of apartments that fit my budget and was very flexible when it came to viewings. He is efficient and will not waste your time. Heâs got access to a lot of exclusive apartments. I would definitely recommend working with him.
Jonathan was fantastic to work with from beginning to end! We had something very specific in mind and Jonathan was able to show us apartments that fit our budget and location. He was efficient and don't waste our time. We were pressed for time and he worked with us to ensure the process be as smoothe as possible. In addition he did a great job speaking with the landlord and securing the apartment we want! Jonathan was a wonderful broker and made my first nyc apartment experience much easier and enjoyable! I would highly reccomend him if your looking for a great broker that can work with you efficiently and find that perfect apartment then Jonathan is the broker for you!
My girlfriend and I used Jonathan to help find a new apartment in the West Village. He responded to our request to view one of his listing and was extremely proactive when it came to find additional apartments for rent. He showed us a bunch of places that fit our budget and requirement (finishings, wash/dryer, etc.) and didn't waste our time. We ended up finding a great place and signed a lease a few days after viewing the unit! I highly recommend using Jonathan to anyone looking for an apartment.
Jonathan got it on the first day!! I only wanted to see the unit I responded to and wanted to make sure the photos were accurate and sure enough, that was the apartment I fell in love with. Jonathan has excellent exclusives, I believe his father is a landlord and very knowledgeable about the market. It was way more credentials thn I wanted to share but it was worth it. He's excellent and highly suggest using his services
Lots of fake images. Just do an image search in google.
I was very pleased with Jonathan being so straight forward and showing me the exact apartment I responded to. Jonathan has many exclusive apartments and his fee was very negotiable. I would highly recommend him if you want someone knowlegeable and experienced.
Jonathan did it again!! found me my perfect apartment in the West Village. Not only does Jonathan listen to my needs when I say, low floor, sunny, budget. He tells you straight up what the up front costs are and always delivers. Dealing with many agents, Jonathan certainly is the most knowledgeable and definitely has the best exclusive apartments
He no showed to our appointment. When I called from our meeting point to see when he would arrive he yelled at me and blamed me saying we didn't have an appointment. He refused to reschedule saying he had 14 other appointments to view the apartment that day.Additionally, I really question the legitimacy of his listings. He has identical photos for apartments in the west village, east village, gramercy park and the upper west side. Really sketchy.Edit: Johnathan Schnapp's reply to my review is untrue. He is completely misrepresenting our phone conversation. Also, I have screenshots of his listings, he uses the same photos for apartments in different neighborhoods, I would attach them to this review, but sadly, that is not an option.
I was very happy with Jonathan showing me what I emailed himto view. We have a dog and it seemed difficult finding a place thatAllowed large dogs. Jonathan not only found the perfect place but was very professional and had the best exclusive apartments wesaw. I highly recommend Jonathan if you want a very educatedBroker
I will say that Jonathan definitely has some of the best exclusive apartments we saw downtown and he was very negotiable with the fee. At first we were a bit upset with the amount of paperwork we needed to apply for the apartment but he did get us the unit and we are very happy. The photos are accurate and he definitely listens to our needs
Creepy! Jonathan called and emailed me, and when I called him back he told me that I would need to bring all sorts of paperwork and a certified check if I wanted the apartment. He told me about 3 times that the apartment would go fast-thanks, I heard you the first time. When I asked to make an apointment, he told me I would have to call him back in the afternoon. When I asked why we couldnt make the apointment immideatly, he simply said "bye" and hung up on me. Not trustworthy behavior. Be careful!
Jonathon was super responsive and only showed me apartments in my price range. Although I ended up finding another apartment, Jonathon was super courteous and offered to help if I ever needed anything. Good broker!
I'm sooooo happy with my new apartment!! Not the easiestprocess but Jonathan is very experienced and has manygood exclusive units in the downtown area. I was recommended by a friend who used him and I am very happyabout his professionalism and showing me the "actual"apartment I emailed on and renting it!!!
Jonathan told me over email the open house was 12pm to 4pm, but when I called at 12:45pm he claimed they were only showing it until 1pm. He then insisted that it was my fault because "you have to call" him. No explantion as to why he provided me incorrect information - repeatedly - over email.
Finally someone listened to me when I said I want a real2 bedroom with a livingroom. He does like speaking only speaking on the phone but he found us a great apartment and he was very honest and a 1 month fee. He seems tohave many exclusive units in the area.
Apartment advertised was not the apartment shown and were not comparable. 20 minutes late to appointment.
