“Dan. Is. Awesome.”
Dan. Is. Awesome. From the moment I first spoke with him about my search, it was clear I was dealing with someone incredibly bright, and committed to understanding exactly what my boyfriend and I were looking for. Seriously – he found us THE EXACT apartment we were envisioning, that wasn’t listed *anywhere*. A two-bedroom in a doorman building in Chelsea that allows pets, with a private terrace, walk-in closets AND a soaking tub – within our price range. What?! Yes.. A place that included not only every must-have on our list, but every nice-to-have – along with some perks we didn’t even know were possible (brand new Viking appliances – seriously?). He found us several other places, as well, that covered all of our bases. And (!) he dealt with both of us – a couple moving in together for the first time – not an easy task…
“His work ethic and drive cannot be matched.”
Daniel Janow was an absolute pleasure to work with. He truly took the time to get to know me and understand my needs, which led to a very quick turnaround in finding my condo. Daniel is someone you can trust–he was straightforward, honest, and looked out for my best interests. I would highly recommend working with Daniel Janow, his work ethic and drive cannot be matched.
“He makes you feel like you’re his only client.”
Everything about working with Dan Janow is fast and efficient. Not only does he walk faster than most humans sprint, he gets you everything you need before you know you need it. But perhaps his greatest asset is, he makes you feel like you’re his only client. He’s entirely available and considerately responsive with both feet planted firmly in your corner.
“This level of dexterity is indicative of his exceptional abilities as a real estate broker.”
Mr. Janow was able to simultaneously work with us, the clients; representatives from our bank; the property management company; and the team members at his office. This level of dexterity is indicative of his exceptional abilities as a real estate broker. With his guidance and connections across the FiDi we were able to find and sign with a property that made us very happy quicker than would be possible otherwise.
“If I ever need to find an apartment again I would use Dan without question.”
Dan Janow was excellent to work with. He was more than willing to show us many apartments in several different locations. Anytime we needed to get into contact with him he was quick to respond and made finding an apartment easy and fun. If I ever need to find an apartment again I would use Dan without question.
“Should we move again, we will be contacting Dan. I suggest you do the same.”
Dan Janow is a master of realty. He remained within our budget, and quickly gauged our apartmentpreferences after showing us a wide variety of buildings and spaces. Not once were we pressured to make a decision, a rarity in NYC. We found our place at the end of April, and Dan went the extra mile. Knowing that our current lease lasted until June 1st, he negotiated with the building to postpone the move-in to May 29th. More than a month after signing our lease! Should we move again, we will be contacting Dan. I suggest you do the same.
“We absolutely loved working with Dan Janow”
We absolutely loved working with Dan Janow- a breath of fresh air in the NYC real estate market. Dan is extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, hardworking, and honest. He will really listen to and look out for your needs. We highly recommend him!
“I am extremely pleased with my new apartment and I would not hesitate to use Mr. Janow in the future”
Mr. Janow was extremely professional in his approach, displaying a wealth of knowledge as to what was available and conveyed an understanding of the Manhattan and Brooklyn communities. Mr. Janow was thorough in obtaining an understanding of my search parameters, specifically my budget, space requirements and safety concerns. He did not waste my time showing me rentals that did not fall within my search parameters. Mr. Janow was always courteous and on time, but most importantly he was able to find me a satisfactory residence quickly and efficiently. I am extremely pleased with my new apartment and I would not hesitate to use Mr. Janow in the future or recommend him to my friends or associates.
“He also secured us the best deal that fit our preferences perfectly.”
This past summer, my roommate and I worked with many brokers without feeling comfortable with any of them. Some were pushy, most overexaggerated, and some flat-out lied about the apartments they were showing. We felt like we were running into scams every time we turned a corner. Dan, however, was not only the friendliest and most honest broker we ever worked with, he also secured us the best deal that fit our preferences perfectly. And although there were many obstacles that prevented us from getting all of our paperwork in on time, and although there were many times we panicked at the possibility of losing the apartment, Dan assured us that he was on our side. He put our fears at ease, worked with us closely, and negotiated with the building in our place. He was patient and understanding throughout the whole process, and as a result of his hard work, we were able to move into our beautiful, luxury Financial District apartment with few problems and no regrets. Our apartment hunt has finally ended on a peaceful note, all thanks to Dan!
I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER WITH THE TREMENDOUS FIRST RATE SERVICE THAT I RECEIVED FROM BEN SCHECK
I couldn’t be happier with the tremendous first rate service that I received from Ben Scheck[.] We met once, he showed me a few places in neighbourhoods I thought I’d like and then I went back home over 5,000 miles away. Ben video taped tours of apartments and listened. We met once, he showed me a few places in neighbourhoods I thought I’d like and then I went back home over 5,000 miles away.

BEN LISTENED TO ALL OF OUR MUST-HAVES, AND WAS VERY RESPONSIVE AND STRAIGHT FORWARD WITH ALL DETAILS
My roommate and I started our search early since we’d had terrible experiences in the past. After living in a dump for a year (never move into a magnum property!) we pretty much knew what we wanted. Ben listened to all of our must-haves, and was very responsive and straight forward with all details. We fell in love with a building downtown but couldn’t find the exact apt we were hoping for – we were the first to know as soon as any new units opened up and Ben came back to view the apts with us several times (often after typical hours or on a weekend to accommodate our schedule) until we found the right fit.
Ben always answers all phone calls emails and questions you might have. He even facilitated us seeing an apartment that belonged to a client he helped move into that building the year before because we weren’t sure how big the space would feel once a wall and furniture were in – that spoke volumes of his professionalism and relationships with clients!
We move in next week and could not be more excited to move into our new home – this week can’t pass fast enough! If you want a straight forward, knowledgeable and friendly broker, Ben’s your man! Thank you Ben!
BEN SCHECK WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR ME
Ben Scheck went above and beyond for me. Dealt with some major hurdles in the process but he refuses to lose for his clients. Highly recommend him.
“[BEN IS] A TERRIFIC BROKER… GETS THINGS DONE QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY.”
This review is for Ben Scheck. I recently started my search in NYC and wanted a 2 bedroom for my roommate and I. We contacted Ben off an ad on http://renthop.com and he showed us the apartment we inquired about and others that were similar. From what a lot of my other friends have told me, brokers like to use fake pictures or post ads that don’t reflect accurate pricing, but Ben was truthful and upfront from the beginning about the ad we saw and the other places he wanted to show us. At no point did we feel like we were being upsold. Ben never put any pressure on us, but rather gave us all of the information and facts about the current market and each apartment we visitied. He let us ultimately make the decision to move to Tribeca instead of pushing us into an apartment we didn’t want. We will definitely use Ben again, and be referring our friends and family when we need anything real estate related in town. He’s a terrific broker and has the resources around him to get things done quickly and efficiently…he was well worth the fee we paid for our great apartment!
I will definitely recommend Ben
From being flexible with meeting times, negotiating move-in dates and apartment pricing, it helped take the hassle out of the move. Ben has continued to check-in throughout the process, even after the lease was signed and the movers had come and gone to check-in on everything to make sure it went smoothly. I will definitely recommend Ben.
