About Ben:

Testimonials

"Ben Jacobs was fantastic in showing my Upper East Side apartment. He showed it nonstop and negotiated a wonderful deal for me. I couldn’t be happier with his endearing personality and hard work. I would certainly recommend him.”

-Gail E.

“Ben Jacobs and CORE were instrumental in marketing, negotiating and ultimately selling our apartment. His straight talk and determination are unmatched. My family is pleased we made the decision to switch agents and firms. Ben’s hustle and fortitude solidified our great results.”

-Matthew H.

“Ben was so incredibly hands on, thorough and such a pleasure to work with. We were listed with another agent and company and were having a lot of difficulty getting feedback or any information on open houses, etc. After many months we decided to switch realtors and found Ben. He jumped in right away, and quickly got everything in place and so soon after that our house was sold! Throughout the short process he kept us updated with feedback and made sure everything ran as smoothly as possible. We couldn’t have had a more lovely, easy and smooth experience in selling our home. We are very grateful for Ben!”

-Malia S.

“Ben is an energetic and resourceful agent who will go to great lengths to find you the apartment you want and then walk you through the process. He sold my apartment that I bought through him. His expert skills in selling my apartment made the transaction go very smoothly.”

-Delia K.

“Ben was a great advocate for my interests throughout the entire process. From the initial dealings with the seller’s broker until the post-closing escrow arrangements, he ‘had my back’ and used his expertise to skillfully guide me through each step. He was very responsive at all times, pleasant to deal with and went the extra mile on several things, including referrals which made my life easier.”

-Veronique S.

“Buying and selling in New York City is challenging. You want a broker who understands the market, will minimize the stress and close the deal – that’s exactly what Ben Jacobs did for me. I enlisted Ben’s help when I sold my apartment and was very much impressed by his patience, diligence and incredible efforts to minimize complications on my behalf. Ben is a solid broker and one that I would recommend to anyone. He combines genuine rapport with an astute professionalism that helps both buyers and sellers navigate an already difficult process. I look forward to working with him again.”

-Mariel E.

“Ben did a great job selling our apartment. He expertly guided us from prepping the space and getting the right contractor to strategizing the right price to optimize our return. We were thrilled to get over the asking price. We appreciated that Ben kept us well informed along the process.”

Margie B.

“My parents had the fortune of having Ben Jacobs as their real estate agent while selling their co-op at 332 East 77th Street. My parents are elderly and had a difficult time maneuvering through the process. Ben was understanding and caring. He made it very clear from the start that he was our advocate. Ben took his time to explain things that might be mundane to others in real estate but to us, unfamiliar with the NYC co-op selling process, was insightful. I highly recommend Ben Jacobs. He is knowledgeable about Manhattan and real estate. But more so, he will be in your corner fighting for you, just like he was with my family.”

-Mylene M.

“My wife and I had the pleasure of selling our two-bedroom apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn with Ben Jacobs in April of 2017. We decided to use Ben because we were confident in his knowledge, energy and trustworthiness which were again displayed throughout the sale/closing process. There were several things that we particularly enjoyed about working with Ben. First, while Ben used his industry expertise in creating a selling strategy, he also genuinely listened to our input and without hesitation he tailored the strategy to reflect our feedback. He also took the time to explain to us why he suggested doing things a certain way and what alternative options might be. Secondly, we always felt that we were Ben’s #1 priority. When we needed to get a hold of him or needed something done, we knew that Ben would be doing everything he could to help us achieve our goals. He is incredibly professional and well organized. Finally Ben, is just a nice guy and easy to get along with! We enjoyed having Ben in our home and knew he would be looking out for us.”

-Chris and Rachel L.

"Ben is a real estate agent like no other. He has a great sense of the market and knows how to price to sell. Ben is responsible and dependable, and was available at all hours. He has excellent communication skills and is a great negotiator, but most importantly, he is honest and has integrity. I would strongly recommend Ben to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in New York City."

-Alan F.
