We met Josh in 2005 when we were in need of space for our rapidly growing financial services company. Josh was the consummate professional during the process. He patiently waited for us to make a decision on the right amount and cost of space. We started with much smaller space in mind, but Josh helped us see that we could afford a bit more space than we were looking for (utilizing owners contribution and sublet income). It was the right decision as we outgrew that space within a couple years and had to kick out the subletors. Josh knows the commercial NYC real estate market well and demonstrated great expertise in dealing with landlord negotiations.
Please accept my sincere gratitude for the outstanding job of sourcing, negotiating and securing new office space for Charity Buzz. You made what could have been an extremely difficult expansion and relocation into an easy transition. You did exactly what you said you would; even when there were bumps in the road you were always ready with a very practical solution. Your knowledge of the local real estate commercial market and current trends was very impressive.
I have leased office space before and with your patience, tenacity and diligence our transaction was once again a success. Your clear and logical explanations every step of the way made working with you a complete pleasure. I look forward to our next expansion and will once again call upon your services.
We first met Josh in 2004 when we were in need of space for our combining out 8 year old consulting company with a new startup we had built in Connecticut. Josh was the consummate professional during the process, taking into account the needs of all three partners and two companies, as well as those of a disparate group of employees (based in NYC and Connecticut). He showed us more than a dozen spaces, helping us make a decision that we were ultimately happy with. After 2 years in this location, Josh helped us trade up to a showcase location for our startup, which had undergone fairly transformative growth – from 5 people to 35 people. Josh helped us find a space befitting the market we were in, and then helped us negotiate an affordable rent. He then found us a subtenant for the space we were vacating, and then another subtenant two years later when the first one moved on. Josh knows the commercial NYC real estate market well and demonstrated great expertise in dealing with landlord negotiations and finicky clients. Additionally, and more importantly to us, Josh is not all about closing the deal – Josh has proven to be about finding us the right space – one that we’ll be happy in, can grow with, and can afford.
