Yakub is wonderful! SUPER helpful, kind, and PATIENT (something I find many NY brokers lack). He fought really hard to help me and my roommate get an AMAZING apartment and did everything he could to make sure we were taken care of. I know the dream is to find a no fee apartment but Yakub is worth every single penny and I’m so excited for my new apartment! Thank you!!
Yakub is professional and extremely helpful. His kindness and patience made the process of securing the perfect apt much less painless. I highly recommend him!
There are good agents, there are great agents, and then there is a best of the best agent like Yakub!! Trust me when I say choose Yakub for your apartment needs. Outstanding personal service, attention to detail, follow-up, fairness, diligence, and it's all wrapped up in a kind and caring personality. Working with Yakub takes so much of the frustration out of dealing with the Manhattan real estate world. I found his professionalism incredible and his communication with me was beyond perfect.
Truly a fantastic experience working with Yakub and I highly recommend him to all!
It was a very nice experience to work with Yakub! I am impressed by his professionalism and enthusiastic attitude in assisting us getting the apartment. He could be reached anytime literally. I appreciated he ALWAYS kept us posted on every step even though there was no respond from the landlord yet. This made us feel secure and comfortable. And with his help, we got the apartment in one week! I will highly recommend him to my friends.
Yakub is very friendly and responsive to our requests, we are glad to work with him as our rental process would not work smoothly without him. I would strongly recommend our friends to contact him for future rentals as well!
Yakub worked extremely hard to help me sow the seeds for a life in which I keep expanding my dreams in my first apartment. Always there with a speedy response and I appreciate his patience as I was in a time crunch.
I had to find a new tenant in about 10 days since I was moving out of the state. He was confident he would find a new tenant for me to take over the lease, and he DID find one before I move out! I was so worried that I may have to pay rent for another month after I move out, but thanks to Yakub, it all worked out. He updated and gave me heads up for potential apt viewing in timely manner, so it was easy for me to plan for other things I needed to do.
Yakub reached out to me as I was trying to find a new tenant to take over our rental - and I'm so glad that he did! From the initial conversation throughout the entire process, Yakub was professional, timely, organized, and transparent. He was great to work and he clearly puts in the time and work to deliver for his clients. From the first conversation I had with Yakub to having a new tenant signed was less than a week!
A true professional and highly recommend!
Yakub reached out to me to list my unit and I'm so glad that I agreed to work with him! My co-op is located in Manhattan and I now live more than four hours away so previously renting my place had been tedious as I did all of the work myself and thought that no other person would take the care that I do. But I was wrong. From the beginning Yakub was patient with me, respected my trepidation, and worked hard to build trust and rapport. He went above and beyond in working with the current tenant to get professional photos of the space. The tenant even mentioned to me how nice she thought he was during this process! He worked with me long distance to obtain access to the unit and when confronted, sought to ensure the building shareholders were comfortable with him as he held showings. He met my rental deadline and stayed on top of everything! Its sad to say but I never really thought of anyone in real estate as being honest or genuine but he truly is. You can tell he takes pride in his work and reputation. Unfortunately, the tenant he found for me will most likely be a long term renter so I will not have the opportunity to work with Yakub in the immediate future (happy/sad). But better believe I'll be looking for him when the time comes.
Yakub was very helpful with getting the apartment!! Best broker I have ever worked with in NYC!!
Working with Yakub was an absolute joy and after negative experiences with other brokers his expertise on the market and honesty came as a breath of fresh air. As someone moving to New York for the first time it can feel overwhelming and uncertain, but with Yakub I felt at ease and like I was truly being listened to. He showed me incredible options and I never felt pressured into making a decision.Yakub really went the extra mile to find a place that both my boyfriend and I would love and even though we had a short time frame to find an apartment he made the time to take us to several listings in both Brooklyn and Manhattan. He literally worked through the night to get us into viewings and made himself available when we had questions or concerns. If youâre looking for a broker that will have your best interest at heart, look no further. I truly can't say enough good things about my experience and I look forward to working with Yakub in the years to come.
Yakub was an absolute rock star when helping us try to find our place in NYC. He worked tirelessly to get us to as many high quality and varied listings as possible in Manhattan and Brooklyn. He was available at virtually every hour of the day (no joke he responded to an email I sent him at 1 AM!) and was extra communicative and patient with us. It requires a great deal of patience to deal with people navigating New York for the first time, and Yakub handled my crazy needs and decision timelines with the utmost professionalism. He did not constantly press me to give him an answer, which a lot of brokers will do, which was a huge relief. He also showed me apartments that I wanted to see, and was not just trying to shift inventory which a lot of other brokers will do.Yakub was a great guide to the craziness that is New York City apartment hunting, and I could not thank him enough for all of his help. I look forward to working with him in the future when searching for future spots in and around New York.
