"I relocated to NYC from the UK in 2016 and was lucky enough to be connect with Jessica. Even before arriving in the US she was able to assist with information and guidance, allowing us to dive straight into the property hunt when I arrived. As a first-time buyer in both the city and country, Jessica’s knowledge was invaluable and she helped me find a fantastic property that ticked all the boxes. Throughout the entire process she was ever the professional, helpful, always available, and always smiling! Added bonus points for going the extra mile and taking my mother around the city for a recap of all the properties as well! I would recommend Jessica Chen to anyone looking to buy a property in Manhattan, and she will be my broker if I ever need one again." - Sebastian

"Jessica Chen is honestly the best broker you can find anywhere. She helped me tremendously when purchasing the property and then again with renting it out a few years later. She took the time to understand exactly I wanted, listened to and understood what type of neighborhood, vibe and lifestyle I was looking for. She helped immensely with the apartment search, advising me of the different neighborhoods that she thought would interest me and the return as an investment property. She worked diligently to find what I wanted and was able to show multiple listings that fit my needs. After settling on the apartment, Jessica walked me through the complicated board package, and went far beyond by assisting me through the tedious mortgage process as a foreign international. Jessica is involved, determined, extremely helpful and passionate about her job. She is not just another broker doing her job, she is the broker to go to." - Mubarak

"My husband and I were able to transfer our lease, quickly and hassle-free, thanks to Jessica Chen! We recently purchased a home in the suburbs and needed to find someone pretty quickly to take over our lease. Jessica was a huge help from day one. She was able to find the perfect tenants in just under a week that met the building requirements and were flexible on timeline with their move-in. Jessica was professional, reliable and responsive throughout the whole process. With all the stresses of buying a new home Jessica made this part of the process worry-free for us. For any NYC real estate Jessica Chen will be our #1 recommendation!" - Jessica

"I would highly recommend Jessica Chen for anyone looking for a place to live in NYC. Given our very busy work schedules at the time Jessica made it an incredibly easy process to find a new apartment and even went as far as face-timing me with my boyfriend while I was out of town on a business trip. She listened to our specific needs which included an onsite gym, in unit laundry, a breakfast bar/island kitchen, outdoor space, and enough space to comfortably fit my boyfriend’s office space. She really went above and beyond to find us exactly what we were looking for, exceeding our expectations, not making us compromise on any amenities we wanted, and all within our budget. She viewed apartments prior to taking my boyfriend and I to ensure it would meet our expectations. From there, she handled our lengthy board package making it as smooth as possible. Additionally, she was thoughtful enough to send us a note and housewarming gift after we moved in. She was truly amazing to work with throughout the entire process!" - Kelli

"We contacted Jessica and 2 other agents from other agencies when we needed to find a studio apartment for Kathy’s move to New York City. We had 2 weeks to find the apartment and get the lease in place. Jessica listened to our preferences and had a list ready of apartments that she shared with us days before we were going to be in the City. The other agents promised such lists but never really came up with anything. We went to New York and met with Jessica, who is delight to work with. All the apartments she showed us were in the price range we requested, and all were in the areas we requested. the apartments were listings from her company and from other real estate companies. It was a long day, but we did find the right apartment. Jessica helped us through the qualification process, and we had the lease and keys even a few days earlier than expected. We would definitely recommend Jessica to anyone looking for an apartment in New York. I grew up originally in Manhattan so I know how difficult apartment finding is. Jessica was always honest with us about everything, and we never felt that she was pushing us to any particular choice." - Daniel

About Jessica

"Jessica provided a great balance between being involved and giving us room to make decisions. Jessica gave us plenty of space while we looked at each unit and made decisions but was always happy to provide her input. In fact, one of Jessica's strengths is that she has an astute ability to use her outside perspective to reflect back how each unit aligns with one's overarching apartment goals.

Jessica was exceptionally professional and fun (they aren't mutually exclusive!) to work with. She exuded the upmost professionalism with all of the landlords that we met, while also making the process fun, laid back, and comfortable. In a time that is often filled with stress and audible sighs, we found ourselves laughing, mentally decorating different units, and enjoying the unique aspects of NY living. " - Michael V.
