Last March my daughter and I started to look for an Apt to buy in New York City (Manhattan). For people (like us) who are not from New York and are not familiar with the peculiarities of the real estate market in that city, the experience can be daunting. We had the good fortune to have as our agent John Chubet, whom we had met a few years before and who impressed us early on with his professionalism. During the whole process of looking for an Apt, making an offer, and waiting for Board approval, John was extremely helpful. His excellent knowledge of the local market in Manhattan helped us to focus immediately on the right areas for us. He gave us great insights into the different neighborhoods and always responded promptly to our (many) queries. He explained to us every step of the way, and in great detail, how the process works. The result is that after only three months (and admittedly a bit of luck) we found what we were looking for and made an offer for an Apt in a Coop. Putting together the application was very tedious (unlike anything I had experienced before) but John's expertise and willingness to invest his time in helping us made all the difference. I would not hesitate to say that, without John's dedication, we would have given up on our goal of owning a piece of real estate in NYC. If you are looking to buy in NYC, especially if you're not familiar with the real estate market there, I highly recommend that you contact John. With his outstanding expertise, responsiveness, and negotiation skills, you will be in excellent hands.

I was facing a daunting, uphill battle in renovating and selling my Brooklyn co-op unit from Seattle: determining what renovations would yield a strong return on investment, hiring and managing contractors remotely, navigating my co-op Board’s policies and approval processes, and more. When I contacted John to explain my situation, he dove into the challenge headfirst. On my behalf, he conducted a detailed assessment of the unit condition, generated a proposal for high-impact renovations, and designed, orchestrated, and oversaw the renovation project in its entirety, leveraging his network of proven, trustworthy general contractors and suppliers. John and his team compiled a detailed and targeted market analysis to ensure we were pricing the property in an optimal manner and performed a dazzling virtual staging that contributed to a formal offer within 5 days of listing. Throughout this process, John went above and beyond to lead coordination efforts with contractors/vendors, the co-op management company, my lawyer, and the buyer’s Broker to move quickly and keep “tension in the wire”. John’s strong sense of accountability, design expertise, valuable personal network, sense of urgency, and excellent client communications make him a rare find. I strongly recommend John for the purchase or sale of your next home. He’s much more than a Realtor®. He’s a trusted advisor.

We first met John at the end of 2019 when an apartment near ours caught our eye. We were just starting to think about buying, and John was super helpful with our slightly complicated down payment situation. He was never pushy, and we just really liked his easygoing demeanor. That said, he's super knowledgeable about the market, on top of eve, and has always been upfront and honest with us. When we started looking again nine months later, we thought of him right away, and it was a whirlwind experience. We went from seeing a few places one Saturday, to having an accepted offer a few weeks later. John helped us through very competitive negotiation with a shark of a seller's agent, navigated us through a tedious and complicated co-op application process, and helped us take care of issues we discovered at our final walkthrough. He's checked in consistently (but not annoyingly) throughout the process. We would absolutely recommend working with John.

John is a phenomenal Realtor®, and more. He spent countless hours with me, showing me many, many, many apartments all over Brooklyn, helping me create pro/con lists for a few top places, never pushing me to go beyond my budget, and really celebrating my first ever purchase. He also supported me as I moved to the west coast and needed to rent out my place, and ensure it was in perfect shape to show. He found the most respectful, caring renters for me, and when it was time to sell my apt., again helped me make sure the place was in perfect shape to show, and helped me with every detail of the sale from across the country. In addition to all the above, he is an incredibly caring, smart, knowledgeable, non-pushy, fun, and proactive Realtor®. I am incredibly grateful and lucky to have worked with him.

It was difficult to find comparables for our apartment in a market that seemed challenging. John did his homework and came up with a substantial number of relevant options; thus we felt comfortable setting our price. As we prepped for showings, he went all out with great ideas, actual embellishments, and physical labor to tweak the apartment into optimal shape. He handled the showings and the negotiations smoothly; he made what could have been tense and nerve-wracking into a lesson in diplomacy and sang-froid. We felt confident in his abilities all the way through the process, and the agreement and closing were swift and painless. He's a lovely man and we give him the highest recommendations.


John was our Broker during our three months looking for a condo in Brooklyn, and I feel so lucky that we found him. He was incredibly knowledgeable about Brooklyn real estate, the ins and outs of condos and co-ops, and the entire process from start to finish. He really understood what we were looking for and did a great job planning out our open house days to target what we wanted. He is also just fun to hang out with, which helps when you are spending every Sunday together. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a chill person who is also a great negotiator and incredibly experienced in his field.
