Reviews

Let me express mygratitude for James’ wonderful help. He was thoughtful and attentive, and thoroughly knowledgeable. He quickly developed a good understanding of what was important to me, even when that might be weirdly different from what is important to others, or the average tenant (if there even is such a thing!).

His prep work was impeccable, he gave me full information along the way, he noticed things I would not have ahead of time, and he assisted me throughout the application process as well.

The Steiner Hernandez team took the time to understand our needs and find the perfect location for our family. We could not have done this without them! – Gerad Gilbert, Anheuser-Busch InBev
I’m very pleased with the level of service I received. The team was extremely knowledgeable and responsive. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who’s relocating! – Taneisha Dean, Ernst & Young
My rental apartment search would not have ended as successfully as it did without James helping me. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and was never phased when my plans change 50 different times. Thanks for everything James, you are very good at what you do. – Dominic Sadarangani, Capital One
Wanted to take the chance to highlight how impressed I was with James support on the apartment search, he was always available, had a great response timing, and didn’t rest until we found a suitable place. Before coming I heard a lot of bad stories about the apartment search in NYC, but James made my experience easy and pleasant. Thank you both for all your help!! – Ramses Ghani, IBM
James was great! He understood what we wanted and did his research. He didn’t waste our time or his. I would highly recommend him.
I rented an apartment in late May from James Kogut. I was so pleased with the entire renting process which I attribute all to James. We began viewing apartments with various realtors of whom did not listen to what we wanted and were pushy and unpleasant. James was so accommodating and really listened to what we were looking for in an apartment. It was very nice to have someone sift through apartments to find exactly what we wanted. We are very happy in our new apartment and I will be referring James to friends! I plan to work with James when I am ready to move! Thanks again James!

James Kogut has been tremendously helpful (and patient) in my search for a decent, affordable 1BR in Manhattan. Over a rather hectic, 2-week period, he showed me about 10 places, and on the last day, we hit the jackpot with four viable options, one of which was a clear winner. It was REALLY difficult to let that one go, but I ultimately decided to look for a place in Astoria, as I simply couldn”t afford an apartment in Manhattan in my preferred neighborhoods. But James and his colleague, Jason, certainly ran the gamut of the options I DID have.

I would highly recommend James at Bond New York to assist with your hunt. He was highly communicative, patient, willing to run all over town (and learn new areas!) and always available for questions. Young, energetic and clearly loving his job, I think you”ll be happy if you choose James and his team.

He was very responsive with all emails and texts. He kept us updated if there was any activity on the apartment that we were hoping for. As first time NYC renters, he was knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods, requirements for rental approval, and our needs/wants in an apartment. After the lease was signed, he even went back to take measurements so we could begin buying furniture. He did his best to make the process as easy as possible. Overall great broker and HIGHLY recommend him!
I had a fantastic experience with James (Kogut). Even though I didn”t ultimately find my apartment through James, I am very grateful for all of his help. He was able to strike the perfect balance between being laid back and creating a no-pressure situation while also staying in good communication and sending me frequent updates on new apartments that met my criteria. Next time I look to move, I will absolutely use James as my agent.
It was absolutely a pleasure to work with you and the entire Douglas Elliman team. Thank you for all your help and prompt responses in an effort to find the right home for myself, Brianna, and our family. – James Dangelo, Anheuser-Busch InBev
I want to provide my highest commendation for his performance. The viewing day was organized well, the service he provided was excellent and we achieved a good deal on the apartment in a simple, professional manner. – Sukhraj Dhadda, Ernst & Young
I also want to pass on our feedback on the local team that helped us, Jason and James. They both did exceptional work and Jason in particular went above and beyond in showing us our local neighborhood when we first arrived and making recommendations when I reached out to him. Their help really made a difference in those first days and we were able to make the most of the week before my husband started work to find an apartment and get settled. – Aruna de Oliveira Costa, Ernst & Young
James Kogut helped me and my roommates apartment search in January 2014. He couldn’t have been a more helpful agent – he worked his schedule to accommodate our hectic workdays (showing apartments in a driving snowstorm). He made himself readily available to answer a seemingly endless list of questions and was happy to share his knowledge of NYC rental real estate. Overall, he made what could have been a stressful apartment hunt a quick/easy/enjoyable task. James went above and beyond to help his clients, and it certainly paid off. Thank you!
James was extremely helpful and made himself available at all times for us. He helped us find an amazing apartment on a time crunch and handled everything for us creating a low stress environment. I would receommend him to everyone searching for a NYC apartment because he really does go the extra mile for you. He even helped me hang my T.V. once I moved in. A really well-informed socialable guy who will put forth the extra effort in making your apartment hunting a more pleasant experience.
Awesome guy, doesn’t create a stressful environment like other agents I’ve dealt with do. Knows everything there is to know about the place he mainly represents.
James was extremely helpful during a very stressful few days. He gave us many options in our price range in a short amount of time and we are definitely happy with our selection. Without his help it would have been extremely difficult for us to find another suitable apartment of this caliber.
James is a fantastic real estate agent. He responds quickly to inquiries, and will go above and beyond to help you find the perfect apartment. Unlike some brokers who try to pressure you, James is kind, and patiently and guides you through the crazy NYC real estate market. Though he showed us many great apartments over a long period of time, we didn’t end up renting through him but would have been happy to. I will definitely be using him again if I decide to move in the future. I highly recommend him.

James was very helpful, and was definitely a find when looking at the real estate scene in New York. He took the time necessary for my roommate and I to see apartments, and was honest, helpful, and knowledgeable about the market, neighborhoods, etc. I would highly recommend him to anyone; He was amazing.
James was great from beginning to end. It’s as simple as that.
