John and Jin were great to work with. They are professional, knowledgeable and honest. Having rented over 15 years in the city, I was hesitant and uncertain to jump into the sales market at its peak. I heard and read horror stories about people lined up to purchase apartment with their documents, and bidding wars. I needed someone to trust in this field. Upon my first initial phone call with John, I was hopeful. Meeting John and Jin for the first time to see a bunch of open houses on a Sunday, reassured me that they were on my side. They were very relaxed and easy going, they were not pushy or focused on making a quick sale. They pointed out things in the apartment, gave me inputs and their opinions and showed that they wanted what was in my best interest. We drove around in a car service and made things easy. It was fun and enjoyable to see some of these options. During the 2 months of searching, Jin and John were my eyes and ears of real estate. I trusted their judgment and at the end, we found the perfect apartment for me in UES. I got an unbelievable space in the perfect location. I can’t express what a great great job they did for me. I recommend John and Jin to anyone looking to buy! They will take good care of you.
This recommendation is for The Santulli Team. This is the second time purchasing a home, but first time in the city. We were so excited to finally be moving into the city. John and Jin were absolutely amazing in helping us getting this done. After only 2 rounds of scheduled showings in the course of 4 weeks, we found our home! Jin was so helpful in organizing endless board package documents and reference letters. John was so instrumental in negotiating and getting this at a phenomenal price for us! Jin and John, you guys were amazing! Thank you for making this dream come true for us!
We just got an amazing apartment in battery park and we have to thank our brokers John and Jin for it. We were not sure where to start because we are not very familiar with New York City market. From our initial phone call, John asked many questions to understand what we wanted. He was patient with many questions we had and he sent us an email right away with list of our wants, which made us see that he paid attention to what we said. We saw over 10 apartments all over the city with John and Jin and when we walked into this apartment, we knew it was the right one for us. Thank you for helping us! You guys are the best!

We were so lucky to find John and Jin to purchase a home in the city. We did not jive with the 2 previous buyers brokers we worked with and was losing hope. But Jin and John really made the process a lot easier for us by doing their jobs very well. They made us feel comfortable and relaxed through out the whole process. They linked up us with Agentfolio and we were able to go through the newest listings, organize what we saw, and discuss what we liked or not liked about each. They communicated honestly and clearly with us for the entire duration of the sale process and we were well informed about everything that went on. Jin and John are great brokers but at the end of the day, very nice people to work with. They are funny and charming and we feel that we were very well represented by them. They are on-point and top of their business and we highly recommend Jin and John to anyone looking to purchase!
Jin and John went beyond what we expected from buyers brokers. They blew us away with their professionalism, efficiency and competence. They were a truly nice people with sensibility and genuineness that we did not expect from brokers. They both have extensive knowledge of the market, (and John knew every single building in the city!) and very informative about current real estate trends, which ensured us that we were in good hands. They helped a lot in calming our nerves about our first purchase in the city. John and Jin made purchasing a property in NYC a great experience for us.
My boyfriend and I had a short time frame to find an apartment in NYC and we were pretty demanding... And they did great! They drove us to every apartment we wanted to visit and were always available to answer our million questions. They were friendly, patient and gave us very good advices. We quickly found a gem in the UES, with everything we were looking for!

I didn't think it was possible to meet an attentive, responsive and quite frankly…kind....broker in NYC. Then I met Jin Kim. I needed to reassign my lease and Jin truly came to the rescue. Aside from getting the job done, Jin answered everyone of my texts and emails within minutes to assure me she was on the job and doing everything possible. She went above and beyond, offering incentives for her fellow brokers, running papers around town and even moving furniture! She was an absolute professional but also a pleasure to deal with on a daily basis. If you're looking for amazing service Jin is the person to call!

John and Jin helped us navigate the confusing world of Manhattan higher level real estate with patience and compassion. They were able to schedule multiple viewings around our very busy schedules and helped advise us in neighborhoods and building types. We are better off and much more knowledgable from having worked with them. Thanks John and Jin, you're the best!
