I got in contact with this gentleman to view an apartment and once I got there, he never showed up. He didnât even answer my email or calls. Very disappointed.
We were under a tight timeline to find an apartment in Brooklyn over a weekend, and Yaakov went above and beyond to make our process as efficient as possible. We completed an application and signed a lease on a perfect place all within a day. Yaakov fought for our best interests every step of the way and was a joy to work with. I can't recommend him highly enough.
I did not receive a follow up call
Extremely professional, dedicated and honest. Was available by email, phone and text. Went above and beyond to ensure we got the place. Helped my roommates and I through the entire process. Straightforward. Highly recommend Yaakov as a realtor. He should keep up the good work.
Yaakov is a great realtor. He updated me constantly about the whole process of renting the apartment and was very approachable and easy to reach. He was also very helpful and gave great advice. I was really nervous about the whole process since this is my first time renting an apartment but he made the whole procedure much easier. I hope to work with him again in the future!
Yaakov was amazing! He was the best agent we worked with, and he really went above and beyond to help get us through the process. Would highly recommend to him!
My husband and I were trying to help our daughter and her roommate find an apartment in the Brooklyn, New York area; and after dealing with a couple of somewhat shady agents we found a listing on nakedapartments.com and contacted Yaakov. Yaakov was able to meet with us that day and show us the apartment (which the girls loved!). We completed the necessary application and within 24 hours we were approve. Not only was Yaakov attentive to our specific need and time constraints, but he was very honest, professional and very personable. Our experience in dealing with Brooklyn Blocks Real Estate and specifically Yaakov was nothing but positive. I cannot thank him enough!! I would definitely recommend his service without hesitation!
After dealing with a few crappy agents and brokers, I ran across Yaakov (Jacob) Feldman's advertisement for a 1 bedroom apartment in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. At this point I was so tired of dealing with agents, and was looking to find a no-fee apartment (I know, that's like finding a unicorn nowadays) and just be done with it. However: I took a look at his profile and saw all of the great reviews and say "hey, why not"?
If I could give Jacob 10 stars I would! I've worked with quite a few agents, but have never come across an agent that was willing to pull the type of strings that Jacob was willing to pull. My roommate and I were looking to move into a no fee place on July 1st. Jacob showed us a place that had an initial move in date of June 15 with a possible fee. Not only did he negotiate the move in date, he also negotiated the fee! He really went the extra mile for us! My roommate and I owe him a SPECIAL gift. Thanks again, Jacob!
Jacob Feldman at Urban Pads is a fantastic broker. I did not end up signing through Urban Pads but Jacob only showed me places that, based on my criteria, would work for me. As he drove around to viewings, he asked critical questions to give a very focused search allowing me to make a very informed decision with several great options. In a year, if I look for a new place, I will definitely get in touch with Jacob. I recommend him to anyone searching for an apartment.
I almost rented a place from this agent. The weird thing was that once I got there it was a different person, which I was not warned of in advance. That was quite confusing.
Yaakov and Urban Pads made my apartment search unbelievably easy and stress-free. Just signed the lease to my dream home and am grateful for his help facilitating the process. The experience was unlike working with any agency I've dealt with in the past and cannot express my gratitude towards him. Do yourself a favor and contact him immediately. You wont regret it.
have not seen him yet, but he seems honest
Being new to Brooklyn, Yaakov was a great resource. Showing me the neighborhoods, explaining how things work, where the best shops and cafes are etc. Super helpful and fair. Hope to rent something from him soon!
Jacob from Urban Pads was an amazing agent. Very knowledgeable and extremely nice and laid back. He made me feel very comfortable to ask questions and after I made the decision to take the apartment, he was super helpful with every single step. I will definitely work with him again, and I highly recommend him.
I would whole heartedly and without hesitation recommend Yaakov (Jacob) Feldman to anyone looking for an apartment. After a terrible experience in which the terms of the lease were changed when I showed up for a lease signing, or brokers posting apartments that do not even exist, I was entirely weary of the process of finding an apartment, until I met Jacob. From the moment he showed me the first of a few apartments, I knew something was different. He didn't prescribe to the "here's a bathroom, here's a kitchen and here's my fee" philosophy I had run into prior in my search. He actually knew the apartments he was showing. He knew the details of the building and gave insight on the management. He knew the specifics of the area like laundry, restaurants, subways, etc and all this information was on the tip of his tongue. Jacob made the process extremely easy and gave the vibe of no pressure the entire time. I would imagine the ups and downs of being a broker can get to a person over time, but Jacob seems to really enjoy his work, which in turn makes his clients enjoy the process. He was able to work within my budget and needs to find me a great place and I couldn't be happier.
Yaakov was incredibly helpful. Moving from Canada, we had many questions about the neighbourhood and about our expectations moving to NYC for the first time. He was very courteous and took the necessary time to explain our options, the relevant information including safety, prices, amenities and was honest in the way he showed us around the Crown Heights area. He went above and beyond keeping in touch with us and making the effort to find us the right place. Ultimately, we found that a different neighbourhood would be a better fit for our lifestyle but that being said, we were torn in making the decision.
I'm extremely grateful that Mr. Feldman was accommodating and courteous. He helped my fiance and I find the place we wanted to live in despite our hectic schedules. I would recommend him and Urban Pads to anyone.
Jacob was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. From the first moment I stepped into the office I felt appreciated and respected, and felt that he really wanted to know exactly what I was looking for and help me find it. I met with him on a very busy day but though he was handling multiple clients and multiple applications all at once, I still felt I got the quality time and attention I needed. He was quick to get everything processed, very communicative throughout, honest with my questions, and he seemed genuinely interested in making sure I was going to be happy in my new apartment. I highly recommend Jacob and Urban Pads!
I hope he can help very nice person
Jacob is an EXCELLENT broker. Understanding, flexible, and listened to every single one of my wants & needs and made sure he only showed me apartments he knew I'd love. He was prompt, courteous, friendly, and, most importantly, HONEST. An honest broker is hard to find in New York City and Jacob is it. Although I didn't end up renting an apartment from Jacob, he was hands down one of the best brokers I've ever worked with. If you're looking for a new place to call home in Crown Heights, pick up your phone and call Jacob NOW.
Great and passionate guy!
I would not hesitate to recommend Jacob to anyone who is looking for an apartment. The service that I received from him, and the entire team at Urban Pads, exceeded my expectations. He made the process of finding a place easy, efficient and enjoyable. Thank you for making my apartment dreams a reality!
Jacob was wonderful from start to finish: he responded promptly and thoroughly to all of my communication, offered comprehensive background info on the apartments he showed, and helped ensure the signing and move-in went smoothly.
After trying to contact and/or working with 9 different brokers, Jacob was the one who finally came through for me. He showed me 3 apartments, gave me insights about the neighborhood, and answered all of my questions. I can't wait to move into my new apartment!
Jacob is a great broker. I liked his apartments. I also appreciate how dedicated he was to our search.
I never thought I would say this in my life but I did find an honest, super professional, well-spoken, hardworker broker in NYC. After so many failed attempts, I was hopeless but since day one Jacob not only answered all my questions but explained and worked hard with us to get us the perfect fit of what we wanted. He showed us both no fee and fee apartments with the same quality and effort. He is a highly professional agent who will do his best to get you the best home. Thank you, Jacob and to Urban Pads!
Jacob was very friendly and professional, and quite knowledgeable about the listings he was showing us. Overall, it was a good experience, and we got a great apartment out of it.
Fast response and scheduling.
Jacob, and the team at URBAN PADS are amazing! Very professional, kind, thorough, and efficient!
Jacob was wonderful to work with. He was considerate to my needs and moving circumstances and found a fantastic apartment that I will be really happy in. He also was a great liaison with the Landlord to ensure that my application was approved. Thanks Jacob, for all of your hard work!
Excellent broker with an excellent response time. Punctual, dedicated, and very friendly. He really pushed for us and worked with us to try and find us our best options. Went above and beyond. Would DEFINITELY recommend.
While I did not rent an apartment through Jacob, I have to say he was the most attentive and thorough broker that I dealt with. The only reason I did not use him was because I found a place that did not have a broker's fee and went with that instead. I would highly recommend working with Jacob.
Jacob was very nice and helpful. He responded to my inquiry fairly quickly, and maintained contact without being pushy. He was also able to work with the landlord and his managing company to get a better deal for us. Although we ended up at a different apt from a different broker, I would definitely recommend him and use him in the future.
Jacob was very nice, hard-working and attentive and managed to get me an apartment even though I had issues with my credit. I was lucky enough to pick the first apartment he showed but I also had the chance to see another set of apartments that were beautiful and completely renovated and ready for move-in within 2 weeks. It was overall a very good experience with Jacob and his agency (Urban pads).
