Without a doubt, without an ounce of hesitation. . . . I would recommend Patrick Jacknow. I have been workin with him for over 9 years. Patrick has helped me in the rental of my home. He has always been a wealth of information from selling to repairs. He is connected to his community and has a genuine concern. Patrick has always been there any time and any day. I have never once regretted making that phone call to Patrick Jacknow. He has gone above and beyond to help with any situation.

"Patrick helped me buy my first two-flat at an incredible price. He knew me and my family well, and his advice helped get us the home despite some fierce competition in terms of bids. Since then, he's landed me several dream tenants and helped me figure out what I need to do to make my rental  property much more appealing to tenants. He's there when I have a question (I even had to hold myself back because I ask a lot of questions) and he sends me potential homes because he knows exactly what me and my family needs. I'll be working with Patrick for a long time to come." - 


"Aubrey made us feel comfortable and at ease during the full process of looking for a new business location. In the end, we got the space we wanted for our design studio, and Aubrey negotiated favorable terms for us. She knows the local area inside and out, and was super attentive to us from beginning to end. " - Noel Eberline, Yearbook Studios

He has helped me maximize my income property investments and will be the listing agent for my single family home in the spring. I feel like he has my back and will guide the process to as good of a conclusion as the possible . 2 words : honest and professional. " - Mark Laudadio


"I have been a tenant in a Jacknow building for nearly 10 years. I am happy and content with my apartment because on those rare occasions when a problem crops up, Patrick Jacknow has been quick to respond, and rectify, the situation." - Cathryn Gran


"I have been renting from Patrick for almost three years now and have had nothing but positive experiences. Patrick always makes himself available to make sure that I am safe and comfortable in my home. I always feel welcome in his office and even in his family. I truly feel that the Jacknows' look out for me and have my best interest in mind. There are not many people out there that will answer the phone after business hours and find a timely solution to any issue. I am grateful for the time Patrick spends on his career and for the support I feel renting from him." - Marissa G.


Patrick has made being a landlord seamless. He is very well organized, efficient and available always. He walked us through the whole process and recommended the necessary renovations and put us in touch with trusted contractors to cover all our needs. Patrick is honest and a straight shooter which we really appreciate. I very higly recommend Patrick. Our experience has been overwhelming positive on all counts. You cannot go wrong with Patrick.
