I would definitely recommend Joseph -- he is prompt in responses, has great properties available and understands how to convey urgency without being pushy. I plan to look Joseph up when I need an apartment in the future.
We all know the story. Sleazy, old timey disinterested agents showing us terrible apartments. Um, no more. Throw that one out the window immediately when meeting Joseph. He will be your new best friend, wear chartreuse sweaters, show you the neighborhood feeling, describe in exact detail the gentrification status, go above and beyond to find what you'd like, and ALSO be realistic with your budget (and tell you when he would not recommend an apartment). Because of him, we learned about the rental market problems during December, and were able to compromise the number of beds to find the perfect location and type of building. I mean we haven't moved in YET but that's on us if it totally falls apart. I would work with him over and over again! He never hesitated to tell us the real opinion of a place — such as when he thought the train would be too loud, or that the tradeoffs would be worth it. He never talked us into a place but told us when we needed to act so that we would not lose the apartment. If you want to NOT ONLY get a new apartment but feel like your best friend (and expert agent) is guiding you through a SEAMLESS process and then somehow share life with you!? Then don't go with anyone but Joseph. Oh I should mention, he only showed us no fee apartments so you don't have to sacrifice it all in NY. He restored my hope in finding something, and restored my hope in life in general if we're quite honest. It's such a joy when you find a kindred spirit, which is absolutely above and beyond what I was expecting in the soulless process of finding an apartment here.
Joseph is an amazing broker. He was very patient and showed us every unit in the building within our budget. He was thorough with the details and really sold us on the neighborhood as he has been living in the area for a few years now. I thoroughly recommend working with Joseph and would reach out to him the next time I have to move.
Joseph has been the most pleasant, patient, punctual and professional realtor we have worked with throughout this entire experience. We told Joseph what we were looking for in our ideal apartment and he diligently searched through the inventory available within the network until he was confident the unit selections met our needs. He then sent over a comprehensive list of available units, clearly listing the amenities of each building. Additionally, Joseph has been very flexible as well as understanding with scheduling to accommodate last minute changes. For every apartment viewing we have experienced with Joseph, he comes extra prepared with a notebook to provide answers to all questions. He even has a measuring tape on hand to measure the size of a room at your request/questioning! Furthermore, Joseph is very knowledgeable about every neighborhood we have visited (from showing us detailed maps to recommending coffee shops and restaurants he has personally tried). Overall, it has been a joy to work with Joseph and we are continuing to work exclusively with him throughout our search as we really appreciate the great service he provides.
Joseph was extremely helpful throughout our apartment search process. He took the time to understand mine and my roommate's preferences and went above and beyond to find a great place for us that was in our budget and met our needs. He was also honest in communication and during the showings, and committed to helping us find a new home. I've never met a more helpful broker in the city!
Joseph was extremely patient and helpful during our stressful Brooklyn housing search. He really took in our needs and wishes and the apartments grew closer to our ideal with every showing. We finally found our new apartment thanks to him, and we're grateful that he's been so quick to respond with every question and concern. I highly recommend Joseph as a broker/manager!
Joseph went above and beyond in how helpful, thoughtful, patient, and kind he was during our search process. Apartment hunting in NYC can be very overwhelming, and he took the time to explain everything and reduce our stress. Often with brokers you just get a couple lines of email and someone to let you in to the apartment -- not with Joseph -- he made such an effort to understand our needs and give us all the information possible to make sure we met them. Although we ended up going with a different apartment we saw that didn't happen to be in his inventory, I wish we had been able to sign one with Joseph because he would have made the process so comfortable!
With the stresses of moving in New York getting higher and higher it is imperative to find an agent who is willing to work with you through this difficult time. Joseph’s ambition exceeded my expectations. It’s a great feeling knowing that there are agents out there that genuinely care about your comfort and feedback. I don’t know when or how many times I’ll move again in New York, but I’m certain Joseph Lattanzi will be my agent when i do.
