"New York Real Estate isn't for the faint of heart -- it's both a contact sport and serious business. I'm a tough negotiator, but I also pride myself in being a person other agents and clients enjoy and trust."

Jack might wear a tie, but he’s definitely not a suit. 

Known for his creative approach to positioning new listings, finding property, and closing deals, Jack's warm and diplomatic style drives his approach. With a great track record at Halstead Property, he treats every deal as unique, and always strives to over-deliver for his clients.

A born-and-bred New Yorker, Jack has a vast knowledge of New York's complex property market. Jack's calm demeanor and digital fluency was honed as a senior music and technology executive, as he completed multi-million dollar deals on behalf of artists such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Sheryl Crow, and Soundgarden – and with blue chip companies like Apple, Sony, Verizon, CBS and Samsung. 

Jack lives on The Upper West Side with his wife and their two dogs -- Frankie Lee and Betty. In his spare time Jack can be found seeing live music, attending lectures, and praying for a New York Knicks championship.

Client Testimonials

"I feel so fortunate to have had Jack manage the sale of my apartment.  From the moment I reached out about possibly selling until well after closing, Jack was indispensable and he made a very stressful time manageable. He was positive, warm, strategic, professional, and above all delivered a great buyer who paid well over my asking price. I can't recommend him highly enough."

- M. Montgomery


"I am so happy to have had Jack as my broker. His vast knowledge and experience living and working in New York was invaluable in finding the perfect apartment to call home. He was always mindful of my needs, budget and location requirements during the search and ready with resources and  recommendations for other professionals needed to get to closing. It was a much longer process than I had imagined but his patience, kindness and positive outlook never failed. I can’t recommend him highly enough."

- Sandy K.


“We had always rented before looking to purchase an apartment so we were quite new to the experience. Throw in having to pass muster with a co-op board and we really felt like we'd been thrown into the deep end. Jack shed great light on how it all worked from getting a mortgage, hiring a lawyer, on through to the final closing. While we looked at many apartments on Zillow and the NY Times sites Jack was the one who ultimately figured out what we wanted and found us the fantastic apartment we now call home.”

- Glenn M.

"We were fortunate to have Jack as our broker. His experience and good judgment made our long and arduous process go more smoothly. He was consistently upbeat and very easy to work with. We especially appreciated his patience when we vacillated between different neighborhoods. Jack listened closely to our feedback to truly understand what we wanted and didn’t want in an apartment. At every step in the process he proactively offered valuable guidance and direction and was a reliable resource for our many questions."

- Joel L. / Manhattan

"We are based in San Francisco and needed to find a real estate agent in Manhattan who could both secure a great luxury apartment, and also work long-distance with a corporate client who had lots of unusual needs. Jack's combination of tech literacy, market knowledge, and people skills made the near-impossible, completely possible. I highly recommend him."

- Gabby M. / San Francisco CA.

"Jack provided a great combination of thorough analysis, market knowledge, and attention to detail to my search. He connected me with a very helpful lender, and unearthed great apartments I would not have seen otherwise. I would use him again in a second"
