Jay Glazer is a New York City real estate professional unlike any other. Working with Jay means that you will always receive a fair and honest assessment of any property. He does his homework, works closely with outstanding legal and support staff, and enables his clients to embrace deals with a great sense of confidence. As long as I live in New York City, I will turn to Jay for property advice.

Jay takes care of it. I’m not the easiest guy to please and my experience with Jay makes me want to buy a home three times over.
— David Chang, Momofuku
From a late night kick off call where he explained us the differences between a coop and a condo, to a hearty handshake and gifts at closing, Jay held our hand throughout the whole process. And at any step along the way, if you need someone from finance to flooring, he’s got a guy. A huge thanks to Jay and The Glazer Team.
— Adam N, Buyer
I’ve now worked with Jay and his team for three separate closings (a previous purchase a few years ago, and just recently, a sale and purchase) and could not recommend them highly enough. Jay, Scott, and the whole team are total professionals and a complete pleasure to work with. I always felt in very good hands through every step of the process. One of the things I value most is their attention to detail and willingness to be available to address any problems, large or small, whenever they arise. They did a fabulous job with the sale—my friends and family were all very impressed at the excellent listing they created, and how quickly we were able to get interest on the apartment—and then they did an expert job in helping sort out the details of my new purchase. I would recommend The Glazer Team to anyone and hope to work with them again.

As a first-time homebuyer in New York City, my goal was to break away from the rental gods that continued to leave me with no equity and an empty wallet. At first, I proceeded on my own scouring the web weekly piecing together open house schedules. Coming up very dry and having no idea of what I really wanted, I turned to a friend’s recommended realtor - The Glazer Team! While I thought I was providing a ‘wish-list’, I really had very conflicting ideas stating I’d be happy in walk-up or doorman building, and could live in the east village or upper west side. Jay immediately began asking the right questions helping to define what really made sense for my lifestyle. Jay’s team goes above and beyond communicating what is available, accommodates viewings (even at odd hours for those that work late!), and showed me properties to compare my likes and dislikes. Jay’s team is phenomenal at timely communication and makes the search process fun as a first-time homebuyer. Once I arrived at what I was looking for and completed negotiations, I turned to Jay and said, ‘now what?’. Without Jay’s team I absolutely would not have survived the closing process. Walking me through step by step always ahead of schedule helped me to remain calm and trust the very lengthy and time consuming NYC co-op routine. As I hit several hiccups, Jay was able to take care of these on my behalf in a professional and timely manner. Additionally, I opted to buy an apartment requiring major renovation. Jay got me off the ground to understand the renovation process and I continue to consult him regularly even though I have closed. Jay – thank you for answering my countless phone calls, worried emails, and naïve first time homebuyer questions. You certainly set me up for success and words cannot describe how grateful I am for making me feel like your one and only client throughout the entire buying cycle. I will absolutely recommend you in the future and you will be first people I call when I opt to sell and upgrade to another NYC apartment!
— Kerri, First Time Home Buyer
Jay is literally the greatest broker out there! Jay and the rest of the Glazer Team are on a completely different level than every other NYC real estate broker! Having worked with them to buy our first apartment, my wife and I now joke about how crazy it is that people use mediocre brokers when for the same price you can have someone like Jay. The Glazer team made the entire buying process a pleasure. Jay has an encyclopedic knowledge of New York real estate. He literally has memorized the nuances of every single building in Manhattan and within each, their little quirks. When we started our process, I sent Jay a long list of street easy apartments that I thought we might like. Within minutes he explained tiny nuances of each unit and why some were good and some were not so. Once he quickly understood our tastes, he only showed us apartments that we loved, and ultimately, our new apartment. The value of working with someone like Jay really kicked in once we got a little closer to the close. After we selected our future home, he thoughtfully helped us craft our co-op package, knowing exactly what they like (and don’t like) to see. From there, he introduced us to great potential lenders, lawyers, inspectors, everything. Everyone who he recommended were top notch. I wouldn’t rent, buy or sell an apartment in New York without his help. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
— Jonathan Snider, Buyer
The Glazer Team had sold several apartments in our building and after speaking with the sellers it was clear they all had a high degree of satisfaction (including getting higher than initially expected prices for their apartments). We decided to give him a try after the glowing reviews and were not disappointed. Jay was a true partner—it felt like he was always looking out for our best interests. He brought a tremendous amount of creativity to the process as well, including videos and alternative advertising, that differentiated our sale from others on the market. His attention to detail, responsiveness, market & neighborhood knowledge were all top-notch. At the end of the first week, we had a signed contract (in a softening market) which was the true test for us. We have already recommended him to friends and will continue to do so. Having worked with several other brokers in the past - mostly frustratingly so - we think Jay and his team are unmatched.
— Robert, Seller
While I have real estate experience, my wife and I were totally new to Manhattan. We feel as though we completely lucked out when one of our Maryland realtors networked and connected us with Jay Glazer. Jay more than exceeded our expectations. He educated us on the marketplace, condos versus co-ops, and safe land leases versus unsafe ones. He was very attentive and patient while we looked at too many units to remember, while also our wants, needs and even budget changed. Throughout the total process, Jay was always available, responsive, timely and made the entire experience fun and enjoyable for us. The unit Jay ultimately landed for us was the pied-a-terre of our dreams, at a deal better than we had anticipated. Experience, hustle and the right personality make for a great realtor and I would highly recommend Jay Glazer and his team to anyone.
— David H, Buyer
This is my second real estate transaction with Jay and his team, which speaks volume in a city like New York! I initially chose Jay to be my broker over 2 years ago after seeing how well he conducted an open house at a listing I was interested in. After a previous successful purchase 2 years ago, when it was time to move on to the next endeavor, Jay helped me sell my apartment off market and find a new place in Brooklyn. This time around, there were a few bumps along the way, but Jay was always available, stayed on top of things, and helped deal with each situation as it arose. The thing I appreciate about working with Jay is his honesty and communication. You always feel like he’s telling you his honest opinion, good or bad, and that he has your best interest in mind. He always answered my calls/text/emails regardless of time of day, day of the week, no matter what the topic, the dialogue was always there and that transparency goes a long way. I would (and have already) recommend Jay and his team to friends and family. Real estate in NYC is tricky, and you really need someone who not only knows what they’re doing but also someone who you can trust.

Jay Glazer is the best broker you could imagine. He handled every step of the process with ease, a sense of humor, and excellence. He’s the real deal - not someone doing this as a day job.
— Josh Atwill Pais, Actor and Coach
Jay demonstrated unfailing energy, a thorough knowledge of the market, a sound grasp for negotiating, and a sensitive ability to coach and educate rather than to force the process.
— Robert E. Harvey, The Ashforth Company
Jay is fantastic - responsive 7 days a week, very knowledgeable and helpful. His team was also great to work with! I would recommend Jay to anyone in NYC looking for a great agent.

The perfect balance of New York original mixed with old school New York soul… Jay knows how to get deals done in NYC with alacrity, creativity, good humor, genuine care and most importantly, integrity. Whether it’s a first time buyer or a seasoned New York real estate vet, you would be hard pressed to find a better guide through a NYC real estate transaction than Jay Glazer. A client first, day and night, can-do spirit and hey, his glasses are pretty cool too! What more can you ask for in your Broker!
— Craig L. Price, Partner Belkin Burden Wenig & Goldman
As a first time home buyer, I couldn’t have asked for someone better than Jay to help me through this process. From our first conversation I felt like he only had my best interests in mind and I really felt at ease from beginning to end. Jay was extremely responsive and I felt he went above and beyond to make sure I was happy and comfortable with every decision. When I was away on vacation he went to an open house for me and FaceTimed me just so I could get a glimpse of an apartment I really wanted to see! I can’t say enough about Jay and his team. I hope some of my friends and family want to buy an apartment in New York soon so they can work with Jay and have the same amazing experience I had.
— Elissa Feldman, First Time Home Buyer
Jay Glazer helped me purchase my first home in New York. We decided to work with Jay because he showed deep knowledge of the market, was extremely patient with us as first-time buyers, and, most importantly, wasn’t trying to make ANY deal happen—he waited with us for the RIGHT deal. Not only was he a great agent, but also, he was a fantastic coach through the complicated process of purchasing an apartment in New York. Jay is extremely responsive and will make himself (or a member of his team) available for anything. We went out on countless open houses with them. That was helpful as Jay’s team was able to synthesize our feedback and views on all properties. I would definitely recommend Jay and his team to my friends and family. He made the purchasing experience interesting, enjoyable, and stress-free. I am glad we found Jay and will absolutely work with him again.
— Christian Grados, First Time Home Buyer
This is the second time that we’ve used Jay and his team, and we couldn’t be happier with the results in both instances! When we first bought an apartment 4 years ago, Jay’s knowledge of various neighborhoods, as well as first hand experience in dealing with many of the buildings, was invaluable. He helped us navigate the ins and outs of purchasing a co-op, planning renovations, and overall just made the process much less stressful than we had anticipated. Flash forward to selling another apartment this year - Jay’s staging, pricing and negotiating led to a sale that we were thrilled with, to say the least. Long story short - whether you’re buying or selling, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more dedicated or knowledgeable team than Jay’s!
— Jane Holter, Buyer
If I could give 100 stars, I would. Jay and his team provided me with unparalleled service. As a first time home buyer, I was very new and unfamiliar with essentially every part of the NYC real estate transaction process. Jay walked me through the entire process with patience, diligence and compassion for my anxieties as a first-time home buyer. Jay is an immense source of knowledge on the real estate market in NYC and his expertise is clear in every step of the process. I actually met Jay over four years ago when I was just starting to stabilize myself financially and curious about the NYC real estate market. He offered to meet and discuss the topic with me and see some apartments, which we did one afternoon. From that point, it took me four years to be in the financial position to actually buy something that made sense, but during all that time he was a resource for me to learn and see. When it came time to actually buy, he was able to provide guidance without ever pushing me, but I was still able to lean on him to help me make smart choices. In my particular case, negotiations were drawn out as was the entire contract/closing period due to some unforeseen complications, but Jay guided me through it and ultimately I got exactly what I wanted, where I wanted, at the price I wanted (I’m elated!). Jay really goes above and beyond for his clients—making each of us feel like we are his top priority. Can’t recommend him enough!
— Shira Adler, First Time Home Buyer
When we started to explore buying our next apartment in Manhattan Jay was the first call we made. We leveraged Jay’s network to build a great transaction team. Jay had recent personal experience with our prospective building and his knowledge was instrumental in making sure we were getting great value for our purchase. Not to mention, he was able to appropriately guide us through the board approval process. Our home purchase was pretty easy and stress free and we have Jay to thank for all his help to make that the case. Jay once again proved to be a great real estate agent, a great guy and a great friend. Give him a call!
— Hillary Solomon, Buyer
We couldn’t have had a better experience working with Jay — we walked away with not only our first home, but an increased knowledge of Brooklyn real estate and plenty of A+ recommendations as well. During a process that’s often confusing, frustrating, and scary, The Glazer Team kept things grounded by being incredibly reachable (if you have a question, you will get a response within five minutes) and incredibly supportive. Plus, Jay is just a super dope guy on top of everything else! I can’t imagine jumpstarting buying a home without him. Thanks for everything, guys!
— Kate Ward, First Time Home Buyer
A couple of years ago, I had a fortuitous encounter with Jay at one of his listed properties in West Village (which rivals his sartorial taste) and was impressed by his intimate knowledge of New York City real estate market which can be quite tricky to figure out. During the following years, we performed due diligence on countless properties but Jay was quite happy to come along in this long, protracted journey of looking for the right home. Then we finally found THE apartment and it was during the period of negotiation to closing when I realized how important it is to use an experienced broker with substance like Jay and associate Scott, who really went above and beyond. They answered my texts and phone calls 24/7 and responded positively to all my frustrations along the process like pros with a focus. I would highly recommend Jay’s Team. Do not ever try to go through the process on your own unless your day time job is to buy an apartment. Even then, it’s not worth it.
