I had a fantastic experience working with the Margolis Espinal Adler Team and have frequently recommended them to friends and colleagues. Communicative, professional and prompt—my questions were always answered and my confidence in them remained high throughout the entire process. It makes such a difference to have a top notch team in your corner for such an important purchase!

Selling our co-op apartment in NYC after 40 years of living in it, was a big decision. We were very lucky to have the Margolis Espinal Adler Team alongside us every step of the way. The entire process was not only painless but enjoyable. They set the stage, targeted the appropriate audience, directed the entire presentation, and found the best buyer at a smart price. We owe it all to the Margolis Espinal Adler Team for giving us the best transition to our new life. Thank you.

I had an incredibly positive experience working with the Margolis Espinal Adler Team. During the sale of my New York condo, they went out of their way to get to know me and my needs personally. I always felt listened to and respected, as the team spent as much time as I needed to discuss the process and analyze data. Ultimately, they more than delivered with one of the highest prices per square foot in FiDi.

Selling Larry, my late husband’s apartment at the Kenilworth on CPW was a complex sale. The timing of his passing (leading up to the Holiday season) and the pending change in tax laws were all converging to complicate things. Jeff, Howard and Marie navigated this terrain seamlessly and completed the transfer with complete success. The Margolis Espinal Adler Team are consummate professionals.

The Margolis Espinal Adler Team has a gentle, but effective, manner in encouraging buyer and seller to reach agreement on price. It is, perhaps, the key characteristic of a successful team who deals with trophy properties.

I feel very fortunate to have met the Margolis Espinal Adler Team and have had their help with my first co-op purchase. Their dedication and passion to their jobs made everything flawless and easy for me to just follow their steps. They made the whole process so simple for a first-time home buyer to understand and they were always there to answer any of my questions along the way. They really are genuine to what they do and the overall quality of the service they provide is supreme.

I have to say that the Margolis Espinal Adler Team was the most professional, competent and overall outstanding real estate agents I’ve ever worked with - and my family has been in the business for over 40 years, has executed numerous transactions, and we have seen our fair share of agents come and go.

Joseph Chaplin

Viqui Maggio White

I have only raves for Joe Chaplin. He sold our apartment in a timely manner, getting us the price we asked for, and made the whole process painless! He Always returned my phone calls and always kept us on top of negotiations. By the end of our sale I felt like I had found a friend, not just a realtor. I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their place.

Adam Aglietti

Joe was amazing. I was so impressed with how responsive he was. He is friendly, efficient, reliable and really cares about you finding the right place, for the right price. A lot of brokers I've dealt with in the past seemed like they didn't have time for me. Joe was the exact opposite. Made me feel like I was his most important client and that added to this wonderful experience. Very highly recommended!

Lauren Silverman

I had a wonderful experience working with Joe. He is responsive and very dedicated. Joe is knowledgeable on the current real estate market and helped me get a great deal on an apartment in midtown east. Joe was professional, reliable and a pleasure to work with during a time that could have been very stressful.

Steven DeBear

Joe worked extremely hard and diligently to ensure that I was able to find the right apartment for my tastes and budget. He made my search a priority even though my budget was on the lower end of the scale. I would highly recommend using Joe's service if you are in search of a new place!

Rahil Berani

Joseph was able to find us an apartment with exactly what me and my significant other were looking for. We were able to find a great middle ground, and negotiations worked flawlessly. Never did Joe say "no", but rather worked with the management company to find the best solution for our needs. I would recommend Joe to any of my friends.

Mackenzie Russel

Joe was a really great broker. He was available seven days a week and showed me numerous apartments before I found the perfect fit for me. I was looking for something with low maintenance that fit my price range and he managed to help me lock in an apartment that had half the maintenance of comparable apartments in the area. I love my new place and will be happy here until I decide to sell and Joe will be the first person I contact when that time comes around.

Hanwey Shieh

Joseph was great at helping me find my new home. We scoured the entire downtown area for something specific and after a year and what seemed to be an infinite number of viewings we found the right one for me. After helping me negotiate the offer, Joseph was instrumental in putting together a sound Co-op board package and guided me through the entire process. Joseph is a genuinely friendly, honest and dedicated broker. I have already recommended him to friends and colleagues.


I highly recommend Joe as a broker. He is one of the few true honest brokers out there. Most of the one's I met made false promises and this was not the case with Joseph. Highly recommended!


Before meeting Joseph, I honestly would not have believed that brokers like him exist in NYC. I called him after looking at his no listings here and seeing two positive reviews. I’m SO glad I did. He was genuinely friendly, honest and really put in effort to help us through the process of finding and applying for an apartment. He showed us a variety of places in the Financial District and never pressured us to look at apartments above our price range. He anticipated our questions before we asked them and promptly asked leasing offices any questions he didn’t know the answer to. After finding us a no fee apartment that we absolutely love, he helped us through the entire application process AND lease signing.

After our previous bad experience apartment hunting, we started this process ready to stand our ground. This was absolutely unnecessary with Joseph; he is a great broker and a pleasure to work with.

Mallory Moore

Joseph was amazing helping me find my new home. I had to find and sign for an apartment from another state and he was full-support for the entire process to help make it happen. He also advised based on his extensive knowledge of the city. I'm so glad we used him because we have been in our apartment for a couple of weeks now and it's perfect- we love it.
