My approach to my work goes beyond my job description, as I am always looking for ways to improve efficiency. The fact that I can get along with my peers, make necessary arrangements to meet deadlines, and successfully function in fast-paced environments have all contributed to the growth in my chosen field and my clients placing a significant degree of trust in me.

Edward was GREAT. At first, I was a little nervous about using a broker that I found online, but he turned out to be wonderful and helped us find and rent a truly amazing apartment in Williamsburg. He took all of my - and my parents - annoying phone calls and was a great mediator between us and our landlord. Definitely use him!

Agent responded to the first email with a list of automatic questions, but never responded again after I submitted the information requested.

Edward Gomez Responded:
I do apologize for the inconvenience. I was waiting for the end of this Month to contact you to start looking for an apartment. Since your lease is expiring at the end of November, looking for an apartment in early October is too early to begin the search since these listings are on a 1st come, 1st serve basis. I would still be willing to help you find a place to call home once after November 1st begins. I look for my client's best interest at all times, please understand.

I really can't say enough about Edward's courtesy, enthusiasm, and good humor. Despite last minute notice and my limited budget, Edward and his team managed to set up five viewings in a morning - all within my price range and location I wanted. Always reachable and reliable, Edward also had an associate who lives in the neighborhood telephone me to answer my questions about the area. I would strongly recommend Edward and his office to anyone moving to the city - before speaking to him I felt like I didn't know anything about renting in NY, and now I am much more confident that I have a handle on the market. This is the guy you want working for you...I don't think anyone else can match his energy and enthusiasm.

I can't express how awesome my experience with Edward has been. As a student from outside of New York, I was pretty nervous getting into searching for an apartment, however, right from the beginning Edward was enthusiastic, and reassuring. He made sure I had all of my paperwork in line before viewing any apartments so no one's time would be wasted. The apartments he had lined up were all within my price range and exactly what I had in mind, he was also a pleasure to spend the day with! With the horror stories I heard from friends dealing with brokers, I am beyond thankful that I found Edward. Highly recommended!

Beware of this agent's bait and switch tactics. I had the most absurd experience with him while trying to see a unit he listed. First he refused to tell me if it was available until I filled out a litany of questions. Then, once he did say it was "definitely available" he told me I couldn't see it because it wasn't right for me. It took me contacting another agent at Rapid to discover that the apartment had been rented out a whole 4 days prior to our conversation.

He's obviously all about getting you into his office under false pretenses in order to show other apartments you may have absolutely no interest in.

Edward Gomez Responded:
When you sent me an inquiry, I sent you a list of questions to answer since you left no number to contact you directly. You revealed that you was looking to move in the next month from now. This apartment as I informed you was for an immediate move in. It was not "right for you" because it would not be available for another 30 days. Soon afterwards the apartment was taken, as is the reality in this business. If you're still in the search after October 1st, I would gladly help you.

Edward lured me into his office on a saturday afternoon under the false pretenses that I would be seeing an apartment I found online. When we got there he sat us down and chatted us up about our price range, informing us how difficult it was in the neighborhood we wanted, and had us sign a sheet of paper. Not until after 15 minutes in his office and an hour of travel did he tell us the apartment we wanted was sold last night, despite having spoken on the phone just an hour before to confirm! I specifically asked if we would be seeing it and he said yes. He then tried to convince us to see an apartment too big for our needs, out of our price range and nowhere near the neighborhood I needed for my daily commute. Quite literally, a waste of time.

Edward Gomez Responded:
I apologize for the inconvenience, but I did not meet with you this past Saturday afternoon. I didn't set any appointments since I was in a family gathering. It might have been with someone else. I did see that you reached out to me in regards to one listing that still is available. If you are still in the search for an apartment, please feel free to contact me. This industry is always on a first come first serve basis. There will be many times when an apartment is here now and gone later.

It's a waste of time working with him

Edward Gomez Responded:
Mike, I have attempted to set up an appointment with you for the search of your new place. Although I could not give you the full address of the apartment (which would make my job as a real estate agent obsolete), my advertisement gave a general range of where the apartment is located. Last we exchanged in messages was myself asking to know of your availability. If you are still interested in looking for an apartment, please let me know.

Throughout the past several weeks, Edward has been there every step of the way. He has always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. His professionalism, mentor ship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt that he was just trying to sell me a house, but that he was a mentor to answer my questions and help me to make the best decision for my family.
I now consider Edward a friend and would highly recommend him to anyone that is searching for a new home. Thanks again to Edward Gomez and The Rapid Realty Team for being such a pleasure to work with.

Very poor follow up to my emails. I had to prod him to respond. Told him my availability to meet in his office and he never replied.

Edit to add: He absolutely did not call me or leave any messages. My phone works. I have received and placed many phone calls, but none from this broker. I also absolutely did not receive any emails. I've even checked my spam. If he couldn't reach me by those methods, why not send me a follow up message through this site?
Shame on you for lying.

Edward Gomez Responded:
After attempting to schedule an appointment over email, I have called the phone number you provided several times last week and got no response. Since you never called me back, there has been no more communication. If you are still interested in looking for an apartment, please let me know. I can be reached by cell phone better.

I've waited to write this review because I wanted to see how everything would pan out but now a few months down the line I have to say- Edward is an all around great guy to work with, plain and simple. I had been mislead by realtors before who are super friendly at first and then give you the shaft but Edward is genuinely an approachable, HONEST, decent guy that you can talk to and get great help from no matter what.

I have never felt so at ease working with any other realtor. Edward is great at making people comfortable and putting their needs first. At the end of everything I felt like this was a guy I could genuinely trust.

I have been unfortunate enough to deal with many different realtors over the years and have moved around a LOT. When I came to New York City I was already dreading having to go through this all again.

I was completely new to the area but luckily got some info about this company through a friend at work. He was boasting about what a friendly guy Edward is and what great work he does. I was totally skeptical- usually amazing reviews from people are highly exaggerated but fortunately for me this wasn't the case. I decided I had nothing to lose by just hearing Edward out on the phone (my regular screening attempt before I meet any realtor in person). Eventually you get really good at it.

When I spoke to him over the phone I told him I just recently moved to New York City. I didn't even get much farther than that. Edward told me a lot of cool stuff about the city that I had no idea about. We ended up talking about sports and some cool bars for quite a while before I realized I had been talking to a complete stranger about random junk.

Finally I mentioned that I would like to know more about his company and where he was located. I figured he was being nice since I was a new client and that I had better keep my guard up anyway.

When I visited him at his office, Edward was extremely friendly. I felt like this was already someone I knew even though I had just moved to the city. He was calm, polite, didn't interrupt me or act like he needed me to sign something fast. He let me talk as long as I want.

Things I really liked about Edward:
1. Extremely personal
2. Meticulous in his work- pays great attention to detail
3. Super responsive and great at tech savvy work- texting, emails, phone etc, you can always get a hold of him.
4. This guy knows everything there is to know about Brooklyn, seriously.
5. One of the most patient people I have ever worked with.

I have reached out to Edward multiple times. My first e-mail got an automated response, but after I responded her never answered. I've texted, called, left voicemails. Haven't heard a thing.

Edward responded to me within the day and asked me a list of questions about myself and what I was looking for. I responded immediately and haven't heard from him since. That was over a week ago.

Never responded to my inquiry.
Edward Gomez Responded:
Although I never responded to your message on nakedapartments, I did indeed contact you via the phone number you left for me. I left voicemails on a few occasions. I am sure you have contacted several agents on your search for a home and my calls probably got lost in the mix of the others to whom you have reached out to. If you are still interested looking for an apartment, please let me know. Again, I do apologize for the inconvenience.
