My employer informed me that I would be transferring from DC to NYC sooner than anticipated. I always knew that real estate in NY was a different kind of animal compared to renting in the suburbs so I had no clue where to begin. Luckily, a colleague of mine referred me to Next Step Realty: enter Jake Vitale. Jake was amazing to work with! Given the distance and time restraints he was attentive and worked diligently to ensure I found the right apartment in my one day visit from DC. The entire process was quick (finding an apartment, paperwork, lease signing, move) and Jake made sure everything went smoothly. He was very informative and helpful every step of the way. Even after moving in I feel appreciated as a client. Next Step Realty and Jake provided a warm welcome and continue to offer assistance if needed. With that in mind, if you’re looking for someone to meet your real estate needs and wants and exceptional professionalism; Jake is the broker you want to work with.
