Gabriel was an excellent guide and consummate professional. He brought us to many places within our budget and based on our needs, and he was very responsive to our feedback to narrow down the search. He was also extremely timely with communication and always looking to be helpful. To top it off, a pleasure to spend time with him. I'd recommend him to anyone.
Gabriel was very professional. I highly recommend working with him.
Gabe was such an extremely helpful agent from the start! He reached out to me immediately after I sent a request to him through Naked Apartments. He got right down to asking the important information - budget, location, move-in date - and later that week he brought me to about 8 apartments in a few different neighborhoods. He did not pressure me at any point. He took notes when I mentioned what I did or didn't like. He kept my budget and my criteria in mind wherever he brought me to. Gabe is friendly and really loves his job, which makes it easy to spend time with him while he helps you to find a great apartment in NYC (which as we all know isn't the most pleasant task).After submitting my application to an apartment that I loved, but finding out that someone else had submitted an application before me, Gabe did not give up. He stayed in constant communication with me (but not in an aggressive or annoying way that some agents can be) and when 3 more units opened in the original apartment building that I loved, we went later that day and I ended up with the apartment of my dreams!Gabe has 5 stars in so many hundreds of reviews for a reason - he's a good guy, helpful, to the point, and wants to get you your dream apartment. I will absolutely use Gabe in the future and I cannot thank him enough for all of his dedication and hard work in helping with my apartment search!
Gabriel was very helpful and professional! He showed me a nice apartment that fit my requests (unfortunately by the time I applied it was gone, but that's my fault). I can definitely recommend him!
Excellent agent, no games. I toured with 5 other real estate agents in New York before I found Gabe on Naked Apartments. Save yourself the time and just contact him first!
Working with our agent, Gabriel Mayorga, was an absolute pleasure. He knew exactly what we wanted and we found an apartment within a few hours. Gabriel is superb: he called/emailed us when he said he would and he answered all our questions. He made the process so easy. Heâs excellent at what he does!!! Thanks Gabriel!!!!!
I've worked with Gabe now on two separate moves into Manhattan, both from out of state, and he's been a huge help each time, securing an apartment for me on a limited travel schedule - not to mention limited budget. Gabe is great at listening to your initial request, lining up apartments he thinks will be a good fit, but then adjusting course along the way. He picks up on your feelings about a place quickly and helps you hone in on what you like and don't like about a given place, and both times has helped me find places that were great that I didn't expect to find.He also works well with your budget, showing a good range of options, and usually can find a mix of fee, no-fee, and reduced fee apartments. Really helps you get a sense of what you can get for your price range in the areas that you're interested in (he's helped me find a place on the UWS and the UES).Gabe also goes the extra mile for his clients, and has helped me with issues that needed to be taken care of on the ground in NY when I've been out of state prior to moving in. He's a great guy, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for place in Manhattan!
Gabriel was incredibly helpful in finding our new apartment. When we met to view the apartment, he quickly started to get an idea of what we were hoping for in an apartment and tailored the list of places to show us that afternoon to match. We found a fantastic place that same day that we are very excited about. Gabriel always responded to emails and texts right away and was always courteous and professional. He'll be my first recommendation to anyone I know looking for a place in Manhattan!
Gabe is one of the best brokers you will ever meet. I met him last summer when I moved to nyc. He was very knowledgeable about apartment searching and gave me tips/advices when looking for apartments. Even though I decided not to rent an apt and instead sublet a room, I told him that I would consider renting an apt later. After months, Gabe remembered me and checked in on me in the winter and spring in case I wanted to search for apartments, which I did! He is a very kind, honest, and trusting person and I would 100% recommend him as your broker.
Gabe was incredible to work with! We were moving to New York from out of state and only had a few days to find an apartment. After showing us a couple of apartments, he honed in on what we valued in an apartment and only showed us options that fit with what we wanted. He was incredibly responsive to our emails and texts and worked tirelessly, even after we left the city, to help us get all the paperwork needed to finalize our lease. I would highly recommend anyone looking for an apartment in Manhattan to work with him!
Stop what you're doing and contact Gabe. He will do everything in his power to make sure you find a place to live, when you need it. No matter how outlandish your requests are, he will work to get it done. Do yourself a favor and call Gabe today.
Gabriel was straightforward and pleasant to work with! He sent us listings that actually matched our criteria unlike many other realtors. It was great!
Very honest and upfront agent. No bait and switch: what you see online is exactly what Gabe will show you, plus more like it, if you are interested. Highly recommended!!
Year two with Gabe! Prompt, courteous, and honest. Gabe took our parameters and found us eight stellar apartments that fit our asks. A few units were just slightly outside our area but really opened our eyes to what just a five block difference in sizing can make. Finally settled on a super central and well priced unit in midtown.
Our experience with Gabriel was worthy of 5 stars without a doubt. He responded to our email and text messages on a holiday and we set up viewings that very day! He was personable, honest and undoubtedly wanted us to find the apartment that suited all of our wants and needs. He took us to several places in one location we were originally interested in but when we viewed them, we decided to look into another another area of Manhattan. That very next day he got together a bunch of other viewings that he thought we might like better; and he was right! We ended up falling in love with an apartment he had told us prior in an email that he thought "was the one". Gabriel understood exactly what we wanted and knew we only had 2 weeks before needing to leave our current apartment. We only worked with him for 2 days until we found a place but it felt like we knew him for much longer. I highly recommend working with him. You will find that his efforts and time put in to understand exactly what you want and to make this process as easy as possible, will exceed what other agents would give. If I ever move again I will contact Gabe!
Without resorting excessively to cliches, I would absolutely give Gabe 6 (or 7!) stars if I could. Rest assured, every 5 star review you could read about him here is 100% true. Being new to the NYC rental market, we wanted someone with experience and integrity - I reached out early to Gabe because of his multiple listings and excellent reviews, and was blown away by his courteousness and generosity with his time. He was both optimistic and realistic with our budget, and told us exactly what we needed to bring to be successful (documents, deposits, etc.) We coordinated a day and time to meet, and as expected, he was prompt, friendly, and a pleasure (fun!) to work with the entire time we spent with him. Within ~2 hours we had seen >10 apartments in our desired area alone, and could have seen more had we wanted to stretch our boundaries just slightly. At no point were we pressured or rushed - in fact, Gabe saw his role as facilitating, graciously balancing our desires with the realities of renting in Manhattan (while also dropping all manner of knowledge about the neighborhoods we were viewing). All the units we saw were in excellent condition, and Gabe had personal relationships with many of the management companies and on-site staff. We ended up selecting an apartment that morning itself, and Gabe put through our paperwork in record time - we were able to sign that week, no issues. Gabe even read through the contract himself to make sure it was on-par with what we should expect for this market (as an added bonus, he took another walk-through of the unit with us, so we could measure it for furniture!) Having rented in other markets, I have to say Gabe far exceeded our expectations from rental brokers, and we not only would be glad to work with him again, but will certainly be recommending him to others!
Gabriel was great from our very first interaction. I could tell he really cared to set me up with an apartment that fit in my budget and needs. He was also very patient in explaining and incredibly knowledgeable about the NY real estate market. He was able to find the perfect apartment in the short time (3 days) I had to search for a unit before flying out of the city. Really enjoyed working with him. HIGHLY recommend his services.
Gabe is without a doubt one of the friendliest, hard working, no bs brokers I have ever dealt with. Over the years I have worked with a lot of different brokers through out NYC, and most of them drive me crazy with their gimmicky sales pitches, pressuring me into apartments, and not looking out for my interests.Gabe however, was extremely professional and went out of his way to make sure we got the apartment we wanted. He worked closely with us every step of the way and always had our best interests in mind.We ended up getting the apartment we wanted because of his hard work and for the first time I felt like I actually enjoyed the process of working with a broker in NYC.I highly recommend working with Gabe to find your next apartment.Thanks Gabe!
Gabe is THE BEST! We were only in NYC for 2 days so I had alot of pressure to find a place ASAP. Before even working with us, Gabe let us know the list of what to bring so we are prepared and competitive as a tenant. He showed us several apartments in 3 different areas of the city that he had emailed over to me beforehand (so not to waste our time) and was incredibly efficient and informative even following up with a detailed email of all of the prices and info on each place you liked. You get the feeling he knows EVERYONE and he has ALOT of keys himself so you don't have to worry about getting into a place or having to rearrange your schedule for the building. We were in NYC over Thanksgiving weekend so that was a huge concern. Gabe does NOT show any apartment with broker fees until all else has been exhausted so that is a great feeling to know you're not going to get slapped with a huge bill on top of all the other costs NYC requires to move in. Lastly, but I think most importantly is Gabe is honest, he doesn't post anything that isn't a real picture (this has happened to us, bait and switch) and he is not high pressure either. I ended up getting an apartment from another listing unfortunately and it was over my original price range, but otherwise I had two top choices from Gabe's I would have pulled the trigger on as well. I highly recommend him!!
After a struggling search to find the perfect apartment for four people, Gabriel stepped in and helped find the right place. Not only was he accommodating with our expectations he continued to help us with the process of compiling all financial documents for approval. He stayed with us throughout the whole process following up on how we like the place and make sure we switch cable/electric. This was extremely comforting and helpful and made a stressful situation stream less. By far one of the best agents out there, I would highly reccomend for those in the process of searching apartments. He does not just show apartments to sucker you in but finds apartments you are actually interested in. I will use him for years to come.
Super friendly and great! Highly recommend him. Brokers don't have the best reputation in NYC but he was more than helpful and great!!
Gabriel was great to work with! I contacted him because I read the many positive comments on this site and after my experience with him I can say the comments were very accurate. He was always responsive to emails, calls and texts, and always worked with our schedule. When we met he was very well prepared and efficient. He showed us apartments that met the criteria we provided, and in the neighborhood we desired. He was helpful and kept us informed throughout the application process. Gabe is a great agent, we would certainly recommend him and will contact him first when the time is right for our next move. Honest, professional, hard working, attentive, knowledgeable, friendly...
Gabe was incredibly helpful and found us the perfect place! He was always super responsive and never pressured us into making a decision. He went out of his way to figure out exactly what we were looking for and never tried to show us anything above our price range. Gabe made the experience of renting so much less stressful and we are so happy with our new apartment!
Gabe was a very friendly and helpful agent that was always on time for appointments and went out of his way at every step to help us secure an apartment. We knew that Gabe would be a great agent when people on the street stopped him to say "hi" and thank him for his help in finding them an apartment. Would highly recommend him to anyone searching for an apartment in NYC. Thanks again Gabe!
Gabriel is amazing. Super attentive and helpful, quick to respond to any question or concern. Even when the first apartment we wanted fell through he went out of his way to find other listings for us to check out and helped us find our new home. We couldn't be happier the way things worked out! When it comes to the stressful charade of finding an apartment in the city I highly recommend Gabriel.
Gabriel was a pleasure to work with. He was always available and responded to our phone call and email questions promptly. He was open and honest about pros and cons of each place we looked at and helped us narrow down our search based on our preferences. Highly recommend Gabriel to anyone hoping for a hassle-free apartment quest.We absolutely love our new place!
Gabe was great energy. He showed us three excellent one bedrooms for our moderate budget and through his observations and interactions with us he saw that what we would likely most enjoy is a sunny, alcove studio that had just been on the market for 2 days, in a large building just at the end of its' gut renovation. Well priced for the location and new features, it was exactly what I wanted. Very excited to move in.Gabe was always honest and upfront with his expert opinion in regards to when it would be most advantageous to rent, what we can expect, which apartments carried fees, how to best approach the management company, and other super useful tips. When I had some key questions in the evening he was patient and kind in helping me understand the process and my options.We put in an application at 8pm the same day we saw the fourth apartment he submitted it immediately so that we would be the first application in, it was approved on day two, and signed on day three. Extremely efficient, quick with email and questions. Highly recommend this fun and helpful guide. Will recommend to all my friends. His listings are honest and accurate to what you can expect. Great experience.
Best broker I've dealt with in NYC. Beyond helpful, upfront, and fair. Knows the area and is a stand up guy. Highly recommend.
Gabriel was very quick to respond and always kept in touch. I contacted him Friday night, viewed an apartment next morning and had the application approved by Tuesday. He made the whole experience of finding an apartment in NYC painless
Extremely responsive, extremely efficient and extremely quick to understand what I was looking for. Took him two apartments to understand exactly what I wanted. Scheduled appointments according to my schedule (after work/7pm on weekdays) and didn't linger or waste my time. Really a pleasure to work with, will definitely contact again!
Gabe is by far the best Broker in New York City. He works fast and efficiently. He is always available to assist you. He is very knowledgeable of the NYC neighborhoods.
Gabe did an amazing job when showing me apartments in the city. He is patient, truly listens to what you want, and then goes out in search of apartments with you. He doesn't b**t you and works with you to find the apartment that's right. He's personable and friendly and really knows his stuff. Although I ended up finding an apartment through chance, I would definitely work with Gabe again and will be recommending him to my friends. Thanks Gabe!!
Gabe was great-- he was kind, patient, and professional. He was never pushy or oppressive, just friendly and helpful. I had never looked for a place in New York before and Gabe came out to work with me over a holiday weekend the moment he flew back into town on Sunday. He worked hard to find places that met my extremely narrow criteria and it is only by chance that I did not end up renting from him. I saw a property manager's sign on the side of a building while walking to a friend's place and ended up getting my apartment through them. If not for that stroke of fate-- it would have been all Gabe. Thank you for all your help and hard work, Gabe!
Gabe was absolutely fantastic and made the entire process of searching for a new apartment basically painless. He took into consideration what I was looking for and only showed me apartments that fit my needs. Gabe is extremely patient, has great insights, and responds to any questions / concerns both quickly and honestly. I had a great experience working with Gabe and highly recommend him to anyone searching for their next apartment.
Could not be happier with Gabe. I am a first time renter in NYC and had a few hiccups during the apartment hunting process. Gabe remained patient with me and guided me to a great apartment. I dealt with a few other realtors, and none of them came close to Gabe's professionalism. I highly recommend him.
Fantastic agent! He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I would strongly recommend him.
Gabe made my apartment search much easier. I had two days to find a place to live and was not at all familiar with the Manhattan rental market. He was very responsive, answered my many questions and made what was an overwhelming process much less stressful. I'd recommend using Gabe to find an apartment.
Gabe is honest, doesn't pressure you, and never stops working for you. He found me exactly what I was looking for at a great price. My experience with Gabe was perfect in every way.
I was looking at apartments in NYC on Christmas Day 2014 and made two inquiries about apartments Gabe was listing. I received an email about 3 minutes after my inquiry and we then subsequently spoke on the phone for about 20 minutes...again, on Christmas Day.Although I just started the process of looking for an apartment, I have found my Realtor! This man is dedicated, helped steer me in the right direction, gave me very helpful information, and I look forward to working with him.Sincerely,Dr. Cory Brewster-Greenstein
Gabriel was the 3rd or 4th real estate agent we viewed apartments with. His way of doing things is way more efficient than any of the other agents. He took us to about 5-6 apartments over the course of 1-2 hours and, although we liked a few enough to send in an application for, we decided to wait a couple weeks to make a decision. He was very patient with us and took us out a second time a couple weeks later to show us 6-7 more. We were deciding between 3 we loved, chose the one we liked the most, sent in the application and later in the day it was approved and we signed our leased.Gabe is a personable, friendly, no-b**t real estate agent that isn't going to schmooze you to get more money out of you. He genuinely has your best interest at heart and wants to make sure that you're getting the most out of your apartment - including a low brokers fee. I would 100% recommend him to everyone and will return to him for my future apartment ventures. Once again, an overall awesome and kind person. Thanks, Gabe!
Finding and securing an apartment in NYC has to be one of the most difficult task's the city throws at you. Gabe really streamlined the process for us. He is honest and forthcoming with information. He did a wonderful job helping my family find an apartment to suit all our needs and an even better job at making sure we secured it. I would highly recommend using Gabe to help in your apartment search.
Gabe was a lifesaver. My boyfriend and I were stuck in a terrible apartment with all the problems you can think of. Gabe not only gave us extremely helpful advice that ultimately got us out of the situation, but then helped us find a new apartment that was exactly what we were looking for (and he did not try to solicit our business--I asked him for help). He was patient, thoughtful, and most of all honest, and in the end made sure we got what we wanted. I cannot recommend this broker more highly.
Gabe is fantastic. He is highly responsive,friendly proactive, and most importantly - HONEST. Everything in his reviews are fully disclosed, NO BAIT AND SWITCH, and is fully honest about the pros and cons of any unit. I hope I can find a unit through him, but even if I can't, Iwould HIGHLY recommend him. A+ and thank you.-Mike
Gabe exceeded my expectations. He was patient and gave me honest and strong advice. He listened to my wants and found great choices within my budget, and landed me the BEST apartment! There were multiple applications on the place, but he got the job done!Above all else, he was a kind person and I enjoyed working with thoroughly.Thank you Gabriel!
He understood and worked perfectly with my situation. I really recommend him!
Gabe was great and extremely helpful, he only showed us places that were in our price range and met the requirements we were looking for (which he actually took the time to get to know/understand). He was always 100% prepared and even able to adjust on the fly when there was something else in the area that could be a potential fit.We got very lucky through an apartment owner so we didn't end up renting through Gabe, but I know that had it not been for this, I know we would have. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants a responsible and responsive agent.Regards,Brian
So far I really like this agent. He's very prompt about answering all my questions, very kind and helpful. If I do rent a place, I hope it ends up being this agent that I rent from!
I typically despise working with brokers because of their bait and switch antics, but Gabe is truly an honest broker. He showed me places that met the exact criteria I gave him, and did not try to sell me on ones that were outside of this criteria or above my budget. He was honest and easy to deal with, which made the nightmare of moving in NYC easier. I highly recommend him!
Gabe was a pleasure to work with. He was friendly, straight forward and very flexible. I am a young professonal who was looking for my first place in NYC. Gabe made what could have been an uncomfortable and confusing process easy to understand and stayed n constant contact every step of the way from tours to signing and even after I moved in. I recently signed a great studio in UES and I couldnt have done it without Gabe's help.
Gabriel is an excellent Broker. He definitely went above and beyond to find us the right place when we were pressed for time. He dealt with the building management company in an efficient manner and made the lease signing process quick and painless. He even made sure that our utilities were being handled properly prior to our move-in. I highly recommend Gabriel and will refer to him for future real estate needs.
Gabe was fantastic - easy to work with, very responsive, attuned to what we were looking for, and a nice person. We found the perfect apartment and it was the quickest and most stress-free apartment search I've had in NYC (out of many). Glad we found him!
Gabe is an absolute gem. Contentious, hard working and willing to go the extra mile. He is super fun to work with, really listens and wants to know honestly what you think and gives terrific advice. Now that we have found him, we will never use another broker. I cannot recommend him highly enough!
We met Gabe at the beginning of our search for the perfect apartment. Gabe is very reliable, honest and gave us a lot of tips about negotiating with brokers/landlords. He is very proactive and made himself available for us through the entire process. I really hope from now on we will have an open communication with our super and management company the same way we had with Gabe. Thanks Gabe!
Gabriel was the most responsive & courteous broker I've worked with. He immediately responded to my inquiry, found what I was looking for, and showed me several places.Because my husband was out of town when our initial meeting was scheduled I offered to reschedule so that he wouldn't have to show the apartments twice. However, he said he had no problem showing them twice, so we kept our original appointment, and he even followed up with me to schedule a second meeting with my husband.
I think Gabe is, hands-down, the best rental agent in NY. He is knowledgable, resourceful, and responsive. And--he listens, actually listens! More importantly, he is a no-games, no-pressure type of professional. In the NYC rental world of hype, dishonesty, and bait-and-switch, Gabe is refreshingly ethical. In a short amount of time, I learned to trust that Gabe had my best interests at heart. He even negotiated an awesome deal for me. Believe me, he is rare. I will keep Gabe in my iPhone and rely on him when I, or my friends, need a man with integrity in the NYC real estate world.
Gabe was excellent throughout the entire process. He's clearly highly committed to his clients and listens carefully to ensure that he is showing you the best places. Also, Gabe has a solid understanding of the NYC real estate market and is on top of all the trends. I'm a satisfied client and strongly recommend using him.
Gabe did a great job working with us, understanding our (sometimes obscure) needs and requests, and staying patient as the apartment hunting process went on and on. He doesn't play the games that other NYC brokers play. We had a great experience with him.
He was helpful, he helped me get my dog approved, he negotiated a great deal for me in terms of move in day, and when my work schedule got crazy, he brought the lease to my office for me to sign. He never tried to upsell to me.
Gabe was wonderful and we are grateful for his help during our apartment hunting. He was honest, reliable,kind and very responsive. He did what he could to help us towards our goal of finding a place. I would recommend Gabe to anyone who is looking for an honest opinion and an enjoyable experience while searching for apartments. Thanks Gabe for all your help!
Gabriel is a great broker! As a first timer, looking for apartments in the city was overwhelming and after having dealt with other brokers, Gabriel was definitely the most helpful. He was very honest and made the whole experience of finding the perfect apartment simple. I would definitely recommend him!
Gabriel is a great broker - he's honest, friendly, and not pushy like other brokers can be in New York. He made the process of renting an apartment simple and painless! You definitely can't go wrong while working with him.
Gabe was great! Not only did he return my call right away but he also gave me very useful information about the renting process in NYC. Given my lackluster experience with other brokers in NYC, I have to say Gabe actually takes personal interest in his clients needs. Through him, me and my boyfriend found a great apt on the Upper West Side.I would def recommend Gabe to other potential renters!
Gabriel is amazing, especially compared to all the other brokers out there -- he didn't do the extremely frustrating 'bait & switch' thing, which made me instantly trust him, and he gave me frequent updates about the apartments I was considering, without being annoying or pushing me to make a decision. Unfortunately, I met Gabriel after I had already applied for an apartment (and was looking for other options in case the application would not get approved); if I hadn't, I'd definitely go with him. Highly recommended.
Gabe is an incredible broker. He is honest, fair, and not pushy. He found me the perfect new home, and understand that it was an emotional decision. I will continue to highly recommend him to everyone I meet. Overall, he is a professional, kind, and committed individual.
very friendly very helpful
I recently rented a one bedroom from Gabe. I can honestly say my experience with Manhattan real estate brokers prior this has been horrendous and is the part of the moving process I dread most. Gabe was fantastic, to the point that he drove to Long Island to hand deliver my application to the landlord to ensure I didn't miss the apartment (which has happened to me before). In addition, he was impressively responsive to questions/paperwork issues, efficient with documentation/signing, didn't 'push' me aggressively before or after showing the apartment (with the usual scare tactic of 'show up with everything, you have to rent now or you may not find something' etc that so many of the brokers I've used previously have done). He also checked in after I was settled to make sure I was happy with the new place. All said, overdelivered throughout the entire process and was friendly/helpful throughout. I very rarely write reviews and can honestly say I would recommend him to family and closest friends. When I move again, I WILL be calling him first.
Gabe is a wonderful agent. He is not only helpful but also very kind and fun to work with. I appreciate his honesty, hard work and very good personality. He always responded to my messages very quickly no matter how busy he was. Even though I didn't rent an apt from him, he did proved his professional and friendly work ethic.Wish you all the best, Gabe.Xinyi
I am only 19 years old and so this was my first time searching for an apartment. Gabriel was not only helpful and informative but very understanding and made the entire process virtually painless. He found me a great place to live and it wasn't even the listing I found him through on this site! He is a wonderful broker and an even kinder person.
Gabe was extremely responsive and helpful when we were in NYC for a week from out of state to look for an apartment. He was very nice and explained things well without being overly pushy. We ended up not getting an apartment through him, but I would highly recommend his services.
I've done housing searches multiple times in Manhattan and Gabriel is by far the most personable, sincere broker I have experienced thus far - for sure a rare find in NYC. He responded to me promptly whenever I had any questions, was upfront and honest about the apartments he showed me, and did what he could to accommodate my requests. My boyfriend and I ended up renting a great apartment well within our price range in our desired neighborhood. Thanks Gabe!
Gabe was very helpful when I was looking for my apartment. He unfortunately only had one in the area I was looking for, but overall he was very up front and honest about everything, flexible with his hours and easy to work with.
Gabe is an extremely knowledgable and no-b**t broker. I contacted him about seeing a particular apartment. When it did not meet expectations he rescheduled his afternoon and spent an additional three hours taking me around Midtown, helping me find a place I would love.Gabe is very personable and is interesting to talk to. An afternoon of walking all over the place would not have been so enjoyable without his company.All in all, I recommend this broker and will use him again.
This is only a review for Gabe Mayorga.I contacted Gabe through their website. I was interested in seeing a certain apt that he represented. He was very prompt in getting back to me and we sat up a time to view. He showed me the actual apartment that was on the website, no bait and switch. He had also looked up a few other places to show me that very day. I was interested in staying in Harlem, but he suggested the Upper East Side. He'd already demonstrated that he had my best interest in mind so I trusted his opinion.Needless to say that the apartment that he showed me was GREAT and ended up being the place i put an application in for. I am normally skeptical about the ethics and usefulness of brokers, but Gabe definitely gives that profession a good name.In summation, my experience with Gabe was great. He was friendly, knowledgeable and seem to like what he does. He kept in touch with me throughout the entire process via calls, texts and emails. I would highly recommend Gabe if you are looking for an apartment and I will be recommending Gabe personally to people that I know.
Wonderful broker!! Very flexible and able to work with my schedule. Showed me apartments within my budget and criteria. Would recommend him to anyone looking in the city. Very polite and professional!
I called his agency after my friend had used the same one a year ago. They connected me to his phone and we discussed what I wanted in an apartment. I said where I wanted to live and how much I wanted to spend, and afterwards he sent me three links in an email, I liked one of them and asked to see it asap, the next day we met and checked it out. It was a little small but the location was ideal (express subway a couple blocks away, etc.) So it fit the bill. In hindsight I should have looked more, but I don't have buyer's remorse so far. Next time I plan on avoiding a broker's fee, but that's not gabe's fault. We went back to sign the application, and there was some slight confusion in regard to the fee involved, but I read the form and it was pretty typical. A couple days later the lease came in and gabe waited while I went over it and made notes. I then moved in and had to call gabe to ask the building management to clean it up as it had some leftover junk on the shelves. They cleaned it up the same day, so thanks to gabe for the quick calls.overall gabe was helpful and did a good job of making a stressful experience a little easier by answering my questions and being pleasant to talk to. He offered to help me find a no fee apt next time, which i'll likely take him up on, haha
Gabriel is driven and hungry, and you can tell. This is the best trait a broker can have - you know you can trust them to get the job done.Unfortunately, I wasn't able to ultimately rent the studio that Gabriel showed me in Harlem. This wasn't his doing, however, and he was absolutely attentive and supportive along the way. He made the process seamless and answered every question I had immediately. His turn around time and level of professionalism is impressive!Extra points to Gabriel for showing me an apartment at 9pm, within a few hours of me texting him. He really does go above and beyond for you! I highly recommend him.
I haven't had great experiences with other brokers, but I was very immediately impressed with Gabe. He asked the right questions about what it was I was looking for and then took that and applied it to the next slate of apartments he showed me. While other brokers may try to get you above your price range or away from the area you suggested, Gabe is right on-target and all about fulfilling your needs. He's all about positive energy, which is great. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a broker for an apartment in NYC.
Gabe was absolutely amazing to work with. He found apartments within my price range and was very helpful throughout the entire process. A lot of times brokers will take you to apartments that look completely different but Gabe's apartments looked exactly like the pictures. With someone like Gabe you can sign off on the lease and be 100% confident that what you see is what you get. I have recommended him to two of my friends that will be searching for apartments within the next few months as well.
I worked with Gabe throughout February and into March. Even though we did not end up getting an apartment, he was so helpful! My boyfriend and I are waiting until June to move, but will definitely use Gabe.I generally don't like working with brokers I meet through websites because they show you things that are not what you are looking for and out of your price range.This happened to me with two other brokers I used before Gabe that I met through this website. He was different though. He told us his opinion on what he thought would work for us and ONLY showed us places within our budget. I highly recommend him!
Gabriel was very responsive and down to earth. He held true to his promises and found me a fantastic apartment!
I have spoken to many brokers and Gabriel was the one who stuck it out through the grueling process with the utmost PATIENCE and was not pushy at all. He was always punctual and kept me in line especially with all the information that I needed to retain and the documents I needed to gather. He is absolutely the best agent I have worked with!
I cannot speak high enough of Gabe. Amidst a real estate market where many agents are deceptive and lie to find clients, Gabe impressed me with his honesty, transparency and authenticity from Day 1. He was available at all hours, and would jump at a moment's notice to show me a new listing which met my criteria. Gabe remained committed to my search and invested a tremendous amount of time until we found a wonderful apartment which met my criteria. I give him my highest recommendation.
I met many brokers amidst my search for an apartment in Manhattan, and Gabriel found me the best selection of apartments strictly within the neighborhood I was firmly attached to. Also, he was the only broker who made me feel comfortable about seeing the unit and not feel pressured in a way that often made me think twice before contacting the broker again. He is the best broker I've met. Thank you for helping me find this wonderful apartment in such a short period of time!
I was interested in seeing a certain apt that Gabe represented. He was very prompt in getting back to me and we sat up a time to view. He showed us the actual apartment that was on the website, no bait and switch. He had also looked up a few other places to show us that first day. We met up with Gabe on our 2nd day of apartment hunting. At that time we had had no idea what we wanted/needed and Gabe was more than patient and helpful in explaining to us some of NYC's rental processes. After we met the first time we set up a time to meet with him a few days later to view more apartments after we'd decided what we liked/wanted in an apt. At the 2nd appointment Gabe showed us more places that were what we were looking for. He even showed us a few places with a listing broker. We found this very admiral because if we went with one of those apts they would have split the broker fee.In the end we found a random apartment that Gabe hadn't shown us so we didn't go through the whole rental process with him. But our experience with Gabe was great. He was friendly, knowledgeable and seem to like what he does. He kept in touch with us well, via calls, texts and emails. I would highly recommend Gabe if you are looking for an apartment.
Nice guy, easy to work with. Persistent!
Gabriel goes beyond his call of duty and is very straight forward and honest. I had seen many apartments and dealt with several brokers. I had the best experience with Gabe and ended up renting a beautful 1 bedroom on the UWS through him. I highly recommend him for any search.
Gabe is a very responsible person. His professionalism made our house hunting process very easier. We will continuously stay with him for future opportunities.
