      Jacob was fantastic! Had a qualified tenant in record time! Thank you for making the transaction so smooth. He was always available to answer any questions I had and I could not have asked for anything more.

    • Jacob helped me buy a home

        - This is our second time going through Jacob! We are students and approaching the rental process is always a tedious process but Jacob makes the process as easy and smooth as possible (which is why we went with him again). He is enjoyable to be around and is transparent throughout the process. I recommend him to everyone!

      • Jacob listed and sold my home

          Jacob was a top notch professional! He helped guide my wife and I through 2 amazing transactions. The whole time we were great like VIP clients and never felt we were ever in the wrong hands! Jacob is a true professional who will make sure you sell your home for top dollar and find you dream home for the best value! Can’t wait to continue to refer him to more family and friends!

        • Jacob helped me buy a home

            Jacob is amazing, I moved to Miami from Ohio and he helped me find a wonderful apartment in my desired location for much much cheaper than I would have been able to get on my own. He's friendly and super responsive and always stays on top of things. Definitely knows what he is doing and has a ton of knowledge on the South Florida market. I would recommend Mr. Engel to anyone looking to buy/ rent or sell a home!

          • Jacob was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He was very patience in finding the perfect home for me while that meant putting off sales in the immediate future. He truly does want what's best for his clients. I would recommend Jacob to anyone buying or selling a home! Excellent agent!

            - Miguel Fernandez - Plantation
          • Such a pleasure to work with Jacob!! We were so clueless in buying a house as first time home buyers. Jacob provides the insight and knowledge that we needed. He found great locations and houses that we never would have thought of. He helped us to realize what we really wanted... six months later and we are loving our house!!!

            - Allison Klotz - Dania Beach
          • This was my first time buying a home and I wouldn't trade for any other agent. He worked diligently to help find me the right home and answered any and all questions in a way that was very easy to understand. He had a great balance between optimism and realism. His market knowledge of Broward county was phenomenal. I felt comfortable with him the whole time and still keep in contact with him. I thank him for finding me and my girlfriend a great first home and recommend him to anyone!

            - Ben Wingard - Fort Lauderdale
          • Jacob was a dream to work with. This was my first house purchase and I overloaded him with questions. He always answered with a smile and quickly found out answers he didn't know. Jacob answered his phone every time I called. He worked around my busy schedule. I didn't think the whole process could go so smoothly but with Jacob's guidance, it felt like a breeze. I have recommended him to every person I know looking to purchase a house. I want to buy a new house just so I can work with him again. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JACOB ENGEL! You will be fully satisfied with his services.

            - Chad Fellenz - North Lauderdale

            - Erika Aguilar - Plantation
          • It was a pleasure working with Jacob. He is extremely knowledgeable about the south Florida market. He always responded quickly anytime I texted him or called. He went the extra mile to dig deep into The HOA documents and address my concerns. Overall, Jacob is a professional who knows the market well and will make sure to find you the perfect home or investment property.

            - Phil Guala - Fort Lauderdale
          • Jacob helped us find the perfect house in Fort Lauderdale. When we found a house we liked, he negotiated to help us get a lower price that was well within our target price range. He was very informative and helpful throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Jacob to anyone who is looking to buy.

            - Daniel Pessin - Fort Lauderdale
          • Jacob Engel is by far the most friendly, laid-back-while-still-extremely-professional person I have ever met. Jacob exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with. He made searching for & purchasing our first home a ridiculously enjoyable experience from the first step to the last. He was extremely easy to get ahold of, and very responsive, regardless the time of day. He definitely went above & beyond to ensure we succeeded in our venture, and even still continues to follow-up with us to ensure we are just as happy as the day we signed the papers. We couldn't possibly have been more thrilled with our experience- we absolutely recommend Jacob 100%!!

            - Stevie Fellenz - North Lauderdale
          • Jacob was really great to work with. Buying a home can be stressful and Jacob really kept us level headed. He knew exactly what we were looking for and really respected and worked around our busy schedules. He was determined to find us the perfect house and he did! Thank you, Jacob!!

            - Jodi Shapiro - Pembroke Pines
          • Jacob was wonderful to work with. He is extremely professional and a true go-getter. He was always responsive day or night. He really listened to our concerns and made this process as seamless as possible for us. I would highly recommend working with Jacob!

            - Jodi Shapiro - Pembroke Pines
          • We used Jacob to assist us in finding a new rental apartment in Miami and he was outstanding. After taking the time to sit with us listen to our must haves list and answer all our questions, Jacob was able to quickly find us our dream apartment! He was also able to negotiate the rental price down by 15%!!! Great realtor - will definitely use him again!

            - Jaymee Lewin - Miami
          • Jacob is an excellent realtor and I will be working with him anytime I am looking for another property. He is responsive and patient and goes above and beyond the call of duty. He continues to check in on my family and I even though his job is done. He provides a personal touch that shows how much he truly cares! I highly recommend him!!!

            - Stephanie Moreton - Pembroke Pines
          • Jacob was extremely personable and helpful. We moved from Illinois and did not know anything about the Florida area. Jacob knew the areas we were looking and knew where we should not look for property and the areas that were nice. He spent a lot of time with us going over properties and what exactly we were looking for. We would highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed.

            - Bonnie Fellenz - Coconut Creek
          • Jacob is a great realtor - he made the whole renting/buying process a breeze and was able to negotiate a better price for us! #HireTheNinja

            - Jaymee Shane - Miami
          • Jacob was excellent to work with! This was our first time buying a home, and he was patient and informative through the entire process. We have been in our home for almost 2 years now and still love it. We would definitely work with Jacob again for our future realty needs!

            - Summer Andresen - Cooper City
          • Jacob is an outstanding realtor and a true professional in the field. My wife and I were in a challenging situation in which we had 2 weeks to find the home of our dreams after abruptly being forced out of our prior lease. He found us the town house of our dreams that exceeded all of our expectations in 2 days. I think what I was most impressed with was his original consultation because we felt that is where he got to know us so well. We only looked at 3 places and funny enough, we ended up buying the first place he took us to because we weren't willing to let it go. So in reality, he was 1 for 1. The town house was slightly out of our budget but due to his knowledge, experience, and negotiation skills, he was able to get the seller to a price within our budget and even had the seller pay for new curtains to sweeten the deal, the true icing on the cake. Jacob has a great sense of urgency, he is easy to communicate with, and my wife and couldn't have found our dream home without his help. Thank you Jacob!

            - Joe McCabe - Dania Beach
          • Since we started to work with Jacob Engel, we felt in the right track in our house buying process, since the beginning he showed great professionalism and so much knowledge about the industry that made everything super easy for us. His negotiation skills are awesome and he truly look on his client's best interest. Always positive and patient, very knowledgeable, always in your side, Highly Recommended!

            - Omar Cusido - Deerfield Beach
          • Jacob was amazing to work with. He was patient during our longggg drawn out home buying process with many starts and stops, and passionate about finding us a home that was right for our family. He was honest and never tried to force and homes or decisions on us, and even encouraged us not to move forward if he felt it wasn't a good fit for us. He's not all about the sale which is rare to find and he looks out for his clients. He was so invested in our family and actively protected our best interests throughout our deal. He will definitely be a life long realtor for us as our family grows!!! I would recommend him to even my closest family. He just sold my sisters home and helped her purchase a new one! :)

            - Tracy Vendetuolli - Cooper City
          • Absolute amazing experience. Jacob took the time to take away the fear factor or purchasing a new home. I will recommend him to everyone!

            - Amit Deonaire - Pembroke Pines
          • We had been looking around for a home for over a year, with a couple other realtors, none of them were able to find us a home that suited our family, within our price range. We almost gave up! The first time we met Jacob, he sat with us and thoroughly asked questions, he actually listened to us and what our needs were. He came up with ideas that we had never thought of. Within a week, ONE week, he found the perfect house for us! We didn't have to give anything up to stay in our price range and we couldn't be happier. n nI think the thing that really sets Jacob apart from any other realtor is the level of service, we had a very difficult seller to deal with and he maintained his professionalism and kept the sale moving. I don't know how he did that. He explained everything to us and we never felt like we were in the dark or lost. If I called or texted him, he would respond quickly. He even helped us with an issue after the closing had occurred! Realtors like him a hard to come by, trust me, I know! Who else will take care of you before, during and even after the sale? I would work with him all over again!

            - Mia Prieto - Pembroke Pines
          • I worked with Jacob hunting for a perfect property starting in the summer of 2017. After a thorough consultation of location and must haves list we were able to narrow down the landscape of the giant Florida market. It wasn't quite the right time to buy. I was waiting the finalization of my ammicable divoce before buying. Jacob stayed in touch while we waited for this document to come in the paper. We searched so many different options before buying, condos, townhomes, single family homes. We saw homes in Davie, Miramar, Pembroke Pines, Weston, Davie, Cooper City, and Plantation. It was quite a lot of properties. I'm not sure how many inquries Jacob made on my behalf on a number of properties, but he was alway on the ball and top of it all. It was at least 10 different homes that I was interested in and he would get back to me with information immediately. He worked with me as a team and always had a postiive and encouraging energy. Thank you, Jacob for finding my 6 year old daughter and I's first home. We look forward to making many memories in it. I appreciate your patience, resillience, and consistency through it all.

            - Ana Crespo - Davie
          • We honestly do not know what we would have done without Jacob's guidance, experience and support during the process of buying our home. Jacob not only knows the market, but negotiates strongly for his side, anticipates problems before they can occur, and never takes his eye off the ball. He took care of us through any issues that came up with the purchase of our home I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area. The bar is instantly raised when you work with Jacob. He works tirelessly to ensure that your goal to buy or sell a home is as smooth a process as possible. If we ever sell this house or need to purchase another one, we would definitely utilize Jacob again. We have such gratitude for his helping us to realize our dream of living in Florida. And we fully realize what a major role he had in making our dream a reality.

            - Moe Mousa - Fort Lauderdale
          • We were so fortunate to have found Jacob Angel when we decide to buy a house. As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Jacob was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. The best thing in his personality that he has always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. His professionalism , knowledge, honesty, and hard work are much respected and appreciated. I now would highly recommend him to anyone that is searching for a new home. Thanks again to Jacob Angel for being such a pleasure to work with.

            - Reham Mousa - Coconut Creek
          • i moved to Florida for a new job starting in mid-September. I immediately started working with Jacob to find locations and styles of homes my wife and I would like. Jacob helped us to narrow down cities, neighborhoods and styles that we liked that met our criteria and lifestyle. We made 3 offers with sellers that were difficult to deal with, unreasonable, or unrealistic in their negotiations. Jacob was able to deal with them professionally and represent us well. We finally decided on another place and the negotiation went well and happened quickly. Overall for the price, the amenities, location and meeting our needs it was a near bulls-eye. It took us 6 months start to finish but Jacob was patient, tenacious, and helpful the whole way. He gave us great advise that helped us in the sale of our home in Texas as well as purchasing our new home in Ft. Lauderdale near the beach. I would highly recommend Jacob as a top notch realtor focused on helping you find your dream home. He has a whole team of people to assist him in the process that are helpful and professional as well.

            - Scott Miller - Fort Lauderdale
          • Working with Jacob was a great experience. Dealing with home searching/buying was stressful enough, but Jacob made it a more stress free process. Always answered his phone. Always responded to emails. Extremely knowledgeable in realty, and worked tirelessly to find us our new home. I would definitely recommend him to anyone searching for a home in the S. Florida area.

            - Robert O'neil - Pembroke Pines
          • My husband and I enlisted Jacob to help us find our 2nd home. He was very attentive and easy to communicate with. I admired how he worked around the clock to find us homes and would always answer his phone regardless of the time. I would recommend him to anyone buying a home and we will definitely use him again if we decide to move!

            - Nathaly O'neil - Pembroke Pines
          • Jacob was introduced to me by my brother who also purchased a house through Jacob. FL is full of Realtors but the difference is Jacob cares and loves his job and is welling to go the extra mile for his clients. I am very pleased with his services and the house I bought through him. Jacob will always be our family Realtor and he will be referred by us to all our friends who wish to buy a house in the future. nSo thank you Jacob and keep up the good work.

            - Mike Skeik - Coconut Creek
          • Buying my first house was a big deal but it was a stress-free experience thanks to Jacob. He was very patient and took the time to answer all of my questions and to show me several properties until we found the one! He walked me through every step of the home buying process and helped me successfully negotiate the deal. His guidance was very valuable as there were others interested in the same property. Jacob is a top performer who is also very knowledgeable about the market and he cares about his clients. You'll be so thankful he is on your team!

            - Molly Hottinger - Davie
          • I was referred to Jacob by co workers who had also bought from him and had a great experience. I was not disappointed! Jacob was extremely helpful and always there whenever I had a question or concern. He was very knowledgeable about the market and helped me find the perfect home. I will absolutely recommend him to anyone in the process... he knows what he's doing and will get it done! Thanks again Jacob for all of your hard work!

            - Kyle Driscoll - Tamarac
          • Not only is Jacob extremely easy to get along with he was so knowledgeable and professional throughout the whole process.

Much respect for him and I would recommend him to anyone.

            - Brooke Hernandez - Miami

          • Jacob was very prompt, professional and knowledgable! He was able to answer all my questions, give me wise feedback during negotiations and he helped the whole hectic process go a lot smoother. I appreciated the fact that H He was always patient and worked full time as a realtor so I did not have to wait until he got off his full time job to then show me houses like many other realtors I've met. He is passionate and love what he does. So glad we got a chance to work with him!

            - Sabrina Petitfrere - Coral Springs
          • As stressful as selling/buying a house can be this has been the most pleasant experience selling/buying a house. My house was listed Monday morning and by Friday we have already received 3 offers. By the following Monday I was under contract! Jacob is extremely professional and persistent. I could not have been any happier with my experience selling my home with Jacob. Highly recommend his services!

            - Jeff Coyne - Sunrise
          • I highly recommend Jacob Engel to anyone looking for an experienced real estate agent. He is extremely knowledgeable and he knows the industry very well. Jacob went above and beyond for our home search. I felt like I was always the priority and he was available anytime I needed him. I wouldn't choose anyone else to work with. He is extremely friendly so just give him a call to chat if you have any questions regarding real estate.

            - Karen Vessels - Coconut Creek
          • One of the greatest realtors I have worked with! He was extremely patient with all our questions and negotiations with the complex. I felt that he really cared about the outcome of our move, putting in all his effort to find us a place to live! We could not thank him enough for getting us the apartment we have.

            - Amanda Stumpp - Miami
          • I had the pleasure of being referred to and working with Jacob at the beginning of the year as a first-time homebuyer. I consider myself fairly shrewd with real property and had specific prerequisites in mind, which Im thankful that Jacob was receptive to. He was discerning in selecting properties to view, and it did take a few months of searching and viewing options, but Jacob did find the best-suited option for me in the end. I really cant say enough good things about my experience with Jacob. I found him very knowledgeable, professional, and always responsive. I highly recommend Jacob, he works hard at providing a very personable homebuying experience, one you can be confident in, and should not miss out on.

            - Gerrit Rogalski - Oakland Park
          • Top Notch, on top of the game, Jacob took the stress out of the whole experience.Sold our house from the first open house, excellent , would recommend, will use again. Both are children bought houses thru Jacob.

            - Scott Andresen - Weston
          • Im so grateful to have met Jacob when searching for my first home! Jacob not only took the time to understand my needs, wish list and definite deal breakers, but he ensured the process was as seamless and easy as could be. Since being a very happy homeowner, I have reccomended Jacob to family members so they can share in the same great service I received. Thank you for making my dream come true.

            - Jaira Cruz - Pembroke Pines
          • As stressful as selling/buying a house can be this has been the most pleasant experience selling/buying a house. My house was listed Monday morning and by Friday we have already received 3 offers. By the following Monday I was under contract! My purchase of my new home was pending this sale and I must say Jacob delivered everything he promised and then more! He is a great realtor and his hustle and passions proves it. Jacob is extremely professional and persistent and I could not have been any happier with my experience selling my home with Jacob. Highly recommend his services!

            - Jeff Coyne - Fort Lauderdale
          • Jacob is a top notch professional. He handled our transaction with white gloves from initial informational meeting through closing day. We were selling a home with unique challenges in a very tough market and he yielded a buyer on the second day we were on the market, who paid much more than our reserve price. Hire the ninja, you wont regret it.

            - Joe McCabe - Dania Beach
          • My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our experiences with Jacob over the last 6 months. Jacob helped us purchase our first home a few years ago. He just recently helped us sell our home (for asking in under a week) and purchase our new home (after a long search). Jacob was always very attentive to us and provided direction throughout the whole process. There were never any surprises, and we knew what to expect and Jacob delivered beyond that. Jacob helped us narrow down what it was we really wanted in our home, and he helped us close on our dream home. Jacob was proactive in his discussions with other realtors, and we were really impressed in how he was able to negotiate all that we wanted. Even when the search got tiring and we got nervous about timing (baby on the way...), Jacob continued to push us through, reminding us to never settle. I would definitely recommend Jacob as my realtor to work with any of my friends and family. Thanks so much Jacob for all of your support / time and putting up with us! We never could have made it through this process without you!

            - Allison Klotz - Pembroke Pines
          • Thank you Jacob!! We love our home and couldnt of done it without you. We worked with Jacob with purchasing our first home 3 years ago. After the arrival of our baby girl, we decided to look for a bigger home. Thank you Jacob for the buying and selling of our homes! Jacob goes the extra distance, he is always available to answer your questions, and has been a pleasure to work with. Made the entire process smooth and easy. Weve also referred Jacob to family and friends, who have also had a great experience. Professional, kindhearted, really cares about his clients, highlighly recommended!

            - Sasha Coyne - Davie
          • We are super thankful for Jacob. He made it very easy and understandable for us to find exactly what we wanted. He was available at all times and was really looking out for our best interest. We love him and would 100% recommend and use him again.

            - Brittany Schulman - Fort Lauderdale
          • Jacob was a very hands on realtor who took our wants and needs into consideration. He was calm and easy going in what can be a confusing process. He always responded quickly and was a pleasure to work with!

            - Cara Wolkowitz - Fort Lauderdale
          • Just closed with Jacob. Professional and knowledgeable. Always available and answered all my questions at any time. He was patient enough to deal with my anxiety and stress related to this purchase and kind enough to let me vent any time and then guided to the correct choice. Thanks a lot for your help!

            - Dunieski Sanchez - Boca Raton
          • We had been in the market for 4 years. Realtor after realtor and year after year with no success. The issue was that there a lot of realtors out there who act as realtors part time. Jacob is a career realtor and all he does is realty. So he was available all day. He had many clients but he found a way to make us feel like we were his only clients. We found and closed on a home after 45 days of meeting him. After 4 years of trying!!! He has an incredible mortgage broker named Joey @ First Choice Financial.... it was just an all around amazing experience!

            - Ricky Espinal - Sunrise
          • Jacob repeatedly proved that he is knowledgeable, compassionate, patient, and a true advocate. He always answered concerns that were generated by inconvenient truths that could have been deal breakers. My husband and I are grateful for all of the time and energy Jacob devoted to helping us find and close on a condo in a 55+ community. Jacob is wise and experienced beyond his years. We truly believe that Jacob' professionalism, honesty, and persistence made our search successful. Jacob consistently exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for a trustworthy realtor who always works for your best interests, contact Jacob Engel.

            - Kathleen Gaebelein - Fort Lauderdale
          • What a blessing it was to work with Jacob in finding our new home! He is very knowledgeable of the area and explained each neighborhood to us, the schools, amenities, and above all he found us exactly the home we were looking for. Jacob not only found us the home that we fell in love with but he was also an amazing tour guide and introduced us to South Florida with a big warm welcome! When it came down to negotiations, Jacob explained every step of the way and worked effectively to get us great terms. During this time we learned a lot from him and realized he has both the expertise and the kindness to turn any situation into a positive one. Jacob has excellent work ethic, communications skills and follow through. Over the years he has developed a network of relationships that today translate into a streamline process, from loan approval, inspections, title and everyone in-between. The home buying process is stressful, but with Jacob and his network of professionals, he showed us how great it can be! He educated us, saved us a lot of money and time, and he was our rock from beginning to end. We know we can always count on him!
