Working with Joe was an absolute pleasure. Especially as a first time buyer, Joe was incredible and walked me through every step of the process. Additionally his knowledge of the city and all of the ins and outs of the process made for an extremely smooth experience. If I am ever looking for property again I will definitely go with Joe and would recommend him to anyone looking for an agent.
It was an honor to meet and work with Joe as I was looking for my first property. During the initial stage of the process, you can tell that Joe is intelligent, caring and responsible. I would send him 5 listings that I was interested in and he would break down the risks for each, as well as spot out which ones had land leases (which I was very surprised), and what he felt. I saved a lot of time and was able to go to the places that I really wanted to see. Despite all the advice, he never pushed for any particular property to avoid making me feel rushed. He once replied to me back at 11pm, which alone speaks a lot to his work ethic. After finding a property I liked, I had a lot of requests and Joe professionally handled each one of them, guiding me through the market and CoVid-19. I second many things said about Joe, but I definitely would emphasize his honesty throughout the process. At no point in the process did I feel like Joe was trying to just collect the fees and move on. He would contact me even just to check on how I was doing given that I was very anxious and cautious. As we went through the negotiation process, he was very respectful of the boundaries since we have a lot of parties to work with, but still gave me advice in the shoes of other roles, which is very rare. I was lucky that StreetEasy found Joe for me, but I would recommend Joe if you’re looking for a property in NYC
Joe is extremely kind and detail oriented. He really cares about his clients and spends time finding out their needs for housing. He is also very organized and schedules showings and then syncs them with the client's calendar and time. We had a great time looking at homes and found ones that really fit our needs.
Joe will make sure he understands exactly how the apartment your'e looking to buy should feel and
look like and will save you a lot of time and hassle from seeing many bad matches. He obviously
puts himself in the shoes of the buyer and always makes sure you're aware of all the small details
you might have overlooked. Joe is a really true professional when it comes to punctuality and
organization and will make the outmost, only to make sure you understand your options. His good
attitude is really inspiring in a way that he'll never make you feel like your'e waisting his time when
you get indecisive. That's important. I would highly recommend Joe as your buyer broker!!
I told Joe what I was looking for in July of 2018. I was pretty specific in what I wanted and Joe did
not try to push anything on me that I wasn't looking for. I was out of touch with Joe for a while and
he called me in August of 2018 letting me know that he had found exactly what I was looking for!
Joe made an appointment to show me the apartment that I ended up buying and several other
apartments to compare within the neighborhood. Joe negotiated on my behalf with the seller and we
agreed on a price quickly. Joe was helpful throughout the entire process, inclusive of the closing,
and made the process understandable as a first time home buyer. I would recommend Joe as a
NYC area real estate agent.
First of all, Joe Gilani is a consummate gentleman. Beyond that, the fact that he was able to find,
negotiate, and succeed at getting a house that my husband and I liked, in the right location, and that
we could afford is an incredible testament to his skills, knowledge, and patience. We may have
been some of his toughest customers because of our preferential and economic limitations.
Nevertheless, Joe and the team of people he has assembled around him made home ownership a
reality for us.
Working with Joe was an easy-going, pleasant & overall- super positive experience. He was always very professional and did what was best for me throughout the whole process! He's extremely knowledgeable on what he does and worked very hard to make sure I was happy with what he brought to the table. Thank you Joe for making this super stressful experience one that I'll always rave about!! You're awesome!
Joe is a driven Entrepreneur that knows what he wants and how to get it. He is an amazing
connector because he cares more about bringing value to others than receiving it. On the other,
hand he is also a sharp negotiator that knows how to get the deal done. I am proud to be part of his
journey and I can’t wait to see his company expand.
Joe is a consummate professional, both high tech and high touch,willing to go above and beyond
for his clients and the people he works with.
I've had the pleasure of working with Joe on multiple levels including having him as a Client and
working along side him as a Partner on a Major Project. Joe brings a unique blend of wisdom,
professionalism, and friendliness to the table along with the ability to challenge others so that they
go the extra mile to produce exceptional work. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with Joe
and growing our professional relationship
Joe is one of those rare individuals who are always hungry for more in life. His drive and
determination is inspiring and his business ability and intellect are two of the reasons for his
successes to-date. Joe is an asset to any organisation looking for a self-motivated, driven and
Joe is as knowledgeable and professional as they come. He was with me every step of the way and
has an attention to detail and work ethic I haven't seen in any other real estate professionals I've
worked with. Sometimes I wondered when he found time to sleep because he never failed to quickly
answer my questions and was always sending over helpful information and updates. Would highly
When it comes to talking about good things and Joe, where do I begin? I hadn't even moved to New
York, and Joe was helping me with everything from picking areas to live in to connecting me to
movers and shakers in the city. I am thankful that people like Joe exist, as they exist to not only
propel themselves but others around them. Moreover, Joe is hardworking, patient, and has a keen
eye for detail that sets him apart from other entrepreneurs especially those in the tech space. I'm
thankful to Joe for acting as a connector, friend, and example.
