"Effortless. I tried my best to be flexible but Jason made the process of selling my first home easy. If I had to do again, I wouldn't hesitate to work with Jason." - Denise A.

"Jason was a stellar agent all around! He helped me find a wonderful apartment match within budget of what I needed, and he did so with consummate professionalism from end to end of the process. I recommend him 100% to anyone looking for a place as well as someone highly qualified to help you along the way." - Michael C.

"He was always there for us. From planning to last minute requests. And always with a smile and always with a willingness to make things happen. He couldn't have been nicer, more knowledgeable or more professional. Anyone looking for an apt or a house should seek him out." - Barry (Coop Buyer)

"We loved working with Drew on both finding a place of our own, and later renting out our property. He is very responsive, communicative and always made us feel that our property/tenant search was his top priority." - Rachel (Landlord)

"Thanks to Drew, I am a first-time homeowner. Drew was efficient in navigating the search for my dream co-op in Jackson Heights, Queens. He endured I was as strategic as possible in the offer stages in a very competitive market — without ever making me feel pressured. His down-to-earth nature was refreshing in what is typically a very stressful process. I’d recommend Drew to anyone buying a home in NYC for his high integrity, market knowledge, and ability to put buyers at ease." - Lauren (First time homebuyer)

"I highly recommend Andrew Freerks to anyone interested in buying and/or selling a property. Andrew is a knowledgeable, detail oriented and responsible professional and my experience of buying a property could not have gone smoother. He responded to my calls and emails promptly, was always available for discussion and provided guidance when negotiations with the seller hit some rough spots. His assistance and professionalism throughout the process was excellent!" - Dave (Investor)

"Andrew was brilliant to work with. Myself and my husband were very busy during our long process of looking for an apartment. Andrew was very patient and not too pushy and accommodated our schedules. He kept within our requirements which was hugely helpful and we never felt anything was a waste of time. We were very picky and Andrew found us our apartment! He was then very fast and kicked things in aggressively when it came to placing an offer on the apartment. This was extremely important as we would not have won our bid if Andrew was not assertive at this crucial stage. He took calls at all times of night and always made himself available. If we come to selling again we will definitely return to Andrew for a professional and smooth process." - Paula and Greg (Coop Buyer)

"Drew is FANTASTIC!! He is a great negotiator, knowledgeable, responsive, and took the time to understand what I really wanted from my new apartment. Looking to buy an apartment in NYC can be a daunting task. Drew guided me step by step throughout the entire process. He was meticulous and organized (not surprising considering he is a veteran). First step was finding a home. Drew's knowledge of the NYC neighborhoods is impressive. He's got his fingers on the pulse of NYC's real estate market and was able to find the perfect home for me!! Second, he was a pro in leading negotiations. My home was already in contract with an accepted offer and he was STILL able to use his relationships and negotiate me into the deal instead. Third, Drew was very patient and organized putting together the paperwork for the deal. He worked well with my lawyer, the coop board, and the management company. I highly recommend Drew!" - Jordan (First time homebuyer)

"Drew was helpful from the moment we met until the moment we closed. His experience and connections showed when he was able to get us into viewing an apartment right before it even went on market, and we needed up taking the place basically on the spot. Top notch." - Justin (Condo buyer)
