I have never worked with a broker who is so responsive, so empathetic, or who works as hard as Jane Katz. Working with Jane was like having a clear roadmap to the selling and buying process. With skill and steadfast determination, Jane put my apartment into contract in less than 10 days and sold it over asking price. Jane brainstormed with me and gave me smart recommendations, and her drive to keep me thinking practically and long-term when searching for my new home was particularly valuable. I would confidently recommend Jane to any buyer or seller who wants a true partnership, and who wants to get the job done with practicality and style.
We first met Jane through a mutual friend in May 2021. While in the city for just a few days from Paris, we wanted to visit a few one-bedroom apartments in the West Village, Greenwich Village to University Place area. In just a few hours, Jane showed us a couple real gems, but we were not quite ready to put in an offer. We left Jane with a very tight, specific brief of what our dream apartment and buildings would be, and we left the city. Not more than two weeks later, Jane contacted us with not just any apartment profile but THE apartment profile in THE building on our dreams on lower Fifth Avenue. She got us in before the listing was on the market. She mastered a FaceTime visit with us in Paris, and within just a few days, we made an offer that was accepted. By early September, we had successfully met the Coop Board’s approval, which was in great thanks to Jane’s step-by-step and meticulous guidance getting us through the Board package approval. Jane is not only an expert of the NYC real estate market, she has excellent taste and is extremely personable. She helped make our little NYC apartment dream come true!
We absolutely loved working with Jane! She is professional, knowledgeable and always greets you with a smile. She is so personable and interested in finding the “right” apartment for you. She’s honest and open about what she thinks, which we really appreciated. She’s a tough negotiator and would never push anyone out of their comfort zone. The whole process of looking at apartments during a global pandemic was tough and Jane just made it easy. She always came to all appointments with folders and information that she thought we should know about the apartment and the building and if we had any unanswered questions she always followed up with the answers. We would highly recommend Jane – she was an absolute pleasure to work with!
We have worked with Jane to renovate and sell a Manhattan condominium in an estate we are administering from Florida. Jane has been a true pleasure to work with from the beginning to the ultimate sale of the renovated condominium. Jane produced analyses of the market both when listed and as the market changed during COVID-19. Her analyses were well done and very useful to guide us in our decisions. We would highly recommend Jane, as she not only has tremendous knowledge and resources regarding the NYC real estate market, but also the business sense and communication skills to successfully conclude a sale at a difficult time. We look forward to an opportunity to work with her again, and can highly recommend her to any trust and estate professional who needs assistance with NYC real estate.
Jane is very detail oriented and one of the most resourceful and professional real estate agents I could have hoped to work with. As a first time buyer, I had a general idea of the buying process in Manhattan and what I was looking for and for our first meeting she arrived with various apartment options along with materials on what I could expect associated with expenses and timing to help me narrow down my options. Her market knowledge and building research was fundamental to our discussion around putting in an offer and ultimately buying a co-op on the Upper East Side. She was very encouraging and patient throughout the entire process. I am really enjoying my new home, it is exactly what I was looking for!
I had a very positive experience working with Jane Katz. She is professional, smart, hard-working and a very good negotiator. During our journey together, we encountered many roadblocks and Jane overcame every single one. She gave 110% of herself and I always felt she had my best interest at heart. She also stayed in close touch with me throughout the process and afterwards, which I found very comforting. As an added plus, Jane is extremely pleasant to work with. I recommend her highly for any complicated transaction, and aren’t they all in NYC.
Jane Katz is a delightful, focused and highly informed agent who will do everything you ask and more to find a dream apartment.
We recently purchased a co-op at Upper East side New York with Jane’s help. Jane took time to understand our requirements, budget and timeframe. She worked hard to find appropriate candidates for us to select from. She promptly responded to our inquiries. All in all, she was very thorough in her follow-ups and had an extremely nice manner throughout the process. I would certainly work with her again should I need to purchase another apartment in NYC.
