Born and raised in New York City, Jay loves sharing his passion for the city with others. A background in theater and as a business executive gives him a unique skill set that makes him a favorite among his clients. They know that their experiences will be professional and stress free, and that he can handle the toughest of negotiations.

Jay believes his success lies in listening to his clients and fulfilling their desires and needs. He understands the extraordinary process of choosing a home and helping to make that happen is his goal. All of this translates into someone who is a passionate, trustworthy, dedicated, loyal, and an understanding real estate partner.

A career in show business reflects his passion and determination. Jay has worked on Broadway and Off-Broadway, in film, and television. Having worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for many years, he dealt with people from all over the world. His love of languages and various cultures has honed his sense of diplomacy.

His 20 years as a sales manager in publishing confirmed his belief that the most important part of any business is relationships. Jay prides himself on having forged very strong bonds with his clients and colleagues over the years, culminating in very successful deals and transactions.

Jay attended the Performing Arts High School in Manhattan and received a B.A. in Theater Arts from Hofstra University. He speaks Italian fluently and has an understanding of Spanish and French. He also has a few words of many languages under his belt “because communicating is essential.” Jay enjoys running in Central Park, and going to the cinema, theater, opera, and concerts as often as possible and is an avid art collector.

“Jay sets the standard for what an ideal NYC real estate broker should be. His absolute dedication to his clients, unmatched friendliness and immense knowledge make him an incredible real estate professional in what is possibly the world’s most competitive market. As a first-time home buyer and foreign national, I didn’t know anything about buying a home or getting a mortgage. Jay held my hand throughout the process and made me feel comfortable at every stage. He is extremely patient and genuinely cares about his clients’ needs. I am beyond grateful for Jay’s relentless effort in finding me the perfect home and the friendship formed. Jay is not only an incredibly talented real estate broker, but also an amazing human being.” - Kunal C.

Jay Fruchtman is the best real estate broker: professional, hard-working and kind. He does his best to make sure everything goes smoothly. Jay staged our Upper East side apartment and after holding only one open house, we received multiple offers, resulting in a bidding war that led to a sale. You won’t find a more trustworthy agent, who responds accurately and promptly in a real estate market that can be a minefield. We highly recommend him! - John & Ann J.

I have used Jay on several occasions to help with real estate transactions. He has always impressed me in terms of (i) the quality of his advice (ii) his negotiating strategies to ensure the deal gets done at a price that works/is put into context for both parties, and (iii) his customer service/prompt communications and return of calls - I never have to chase for an update. Overall, I have been very pleased and will continue to use Jay in the future without hesitation. - Anthony P.

The words "thank you" don't begin to express my gratitude for the manner in which you handled the sale of my apartment. The fact that I was out of state and unable to have much control was very disheartening to me.

It did not take long for me to realize that I had nothing to fear due to the fact that you were on top of everything; from the renovations, to the open houses each week, to every detail.

No task was too small for you. I felt guilty at times not being there but you took care of every aspect and went far and above the responsibilities of sales. You are not only completely professional and completely trustworthy but I now consider you a true friend. You don't treat these matters as simply a job: you realize how stressful and emotional the sale of one's home is and you were always there for me. You treated me as a genuine friend and you treated the sale process as if it were your own home. No call from me went unreturned, almost immediately, no matter what time of day or night.

You explained every step of the process to me as we went along.

Again, the words "thank you, Jay" aren't enough. I will never forget how you got me through such a difficult time in my life. And successfully!! - Most sincerely, Wanda I.

"Jay is, simply put, an amazing real estate agent. I’ve worked with him twice, once to rent out a property, and another time to sell it. I’ve worked with several agents before. Never have I met any as dedicated as Jay. He both constantly makes himself available while working incredibly hard. Real estate dealings in NYC can be fraught with anxiety. Jay is patient, knowledgeable, and bottom line gets the job done. Forget glossy agents who are all show and no show up. Jay closes. He helped us sell our apartment after we’d moved out of state. I would not hesitate to work with him again and would enthusiastically recommend you work with him today". - Aliza K.
