I very rarely find the need to review something online, but Gabe's professionalism and level of service went so far above and beyond my expectations that I felt it would be criminal not to share my experience with all of you. Gabe approached me in a Starbucks after overhearing that I was apartment hunting. At that point, I was frustrated, exhausted, and annoyed at the so-called "broker" I had just gotten off the phone with, who refused to give me his last name. (That sounds legit, right?). Gabe's relaxed and reassuring demeanor immediately put me at ease, and within a few minutes, we were discussing what I was looking for, my budget, etc. Gabe initially took me to look at an apartment that was nice, but not the right neighborhood for me. Regardless, his no-pressure attitude and very quick (and consistent) responsiveness convinced me that I wanted him to be my broker. After discussing my neighborhood preferences more carefully, Gabe let me know just a day or two later that he had found me an apartment. The place was perfect (right size, right price, right location). In addition, he negotiated my rent DOWN by $100/month (thus REDUCING his brokers fee)! After learning that I was heading out of town for a few weeks, he expedited the draft of my lease (< 24 hrs!), and even waited around after regular business hours for me to make it to his office to sign it before I left the next morning on a plane. Also understanding that moving is an expensive and stressful business, he was more than willing to accept Chase Quickpay from me so that I could send him the remainder of his brokers fee while I was out of town, allowing me time to transfer money from an online savings account into a checking account.

If the above wasn't enough to convince you that Gabe is exceptional, this should: the building I moved into is actually the same building he lives in. Even after the deal was closed, even after signing the lease, even after the brokers fee was transferred, Gabe has continued to help me: he's set me up with a local Time Warner Cable rep, he's been super helpful with making sure the apartment is ready to go for my move-in date (always following up with me when he says he's going to), and he's always responsive to my (seemingly endless) questions.

In short: moving is stressful. Gabe is a unicorn of a broker, and a genuinely nice human being with your best interests at heart. Hire him.

Melissa, thanks for trusting me with your apartment hunt! It really takes a lot to meet someone at a Starbucks and hope that they have your best interests in mind.
Glad I could help!

Gabriel was extremely courteous, communicative, and responded to all of my questions immediately. My husband and I were very pleased with his service and the apartment that we ultimately ended up renting in Bay Ridge. I got the sense that Gabriel really did care about working with his clients (unlike previous brokers we had worked with) and I appreciated that he was very professional. I would highly recommend him.

Gabriel got back to my inquiry about an apartment I was interested in seeing in a timely manner and followed up with me later on to let me know the apartment was no longer available. Although I didn't get the apt I was treated in a professional manner and he is definitely a broker I would want to work with.

I just wanted to add to the stack of well-deserved positive reviews here. Gabriel was nice, really responsive, and patiently answered every question I had for him when I met him for a viewing. Also, the apartments he showed me were true to the pictures on the website, which I really appreciated. I ended up finding an apartment I loved that was listed with another agent, but Gabriel was a great person to work with.

Gabriel was prompt, patient and polite. Maybe because he's young he's still idealistic -- whatever the reason, it's nice to deal with someone who's responsive and takes his time with you. I didn't end up renting the (huge, under-market value) studio he showed me. Yet even when I texted him the next day that I was passing on it, he had the good manners to acknowledge me. Good manners go a long way.

Simply put, Gabriel was great to work with every step of the way. I contacted him with with what I wanted in an apartment (I was very picky), and by that very evening, he had a place to show me. The apartment was everything I had asked for, AND a lower price than I had anticipated. I found Gabriel to be very pleasant, yet honest and to the point. He really took the anxiety out of the whole situation. Also, I needed to be in my new place within a week. He worked overtime for several nights to meet with me and my guarantor, and made it happen! Gabriel will work very hard to find a place that you like. I strongly recommend his services.

Gabriel is great to work with. He's an awesome person & is highly professional. He was very understanding & compassionate with my interests and needs in an apartment. He isn't pushy, and I would recommend him to literally anyone.

He isn't the type of person that is only interested in your money. He is truly helpful & actually cares about finding me a place to live.
The apartments he had available for me we're the best I've seen after months of looking; & he really is great in finding places that are affordable to your budget.
Something that I appreciated about him is that he didn't treat me like a customer, he honestly felt more like a friend.

With the places he had shown me, he personally selected them based off my interests in a apartment and what I could afford.
He IS NOT the type of realtor to take your top dollar & show you places only at that number or above budget. He takes the time to find places that are typically under your max budget, while still finding the kind of places I would want to live in.

When working with Gabriel it is best to be absolutely prepared with what you would need to secure an apartment. I loved the apartments he had shown me not only for the feel that I was looking for, but it was the best for my dollar. Although the places we're so desirable they didn't last long. With Gabriel he shows you the best.
The only thing I personally wish I did was to act faster in securing an apartment,
He's the ideal realtor to work with to sit down then find a place right for you.

We used 25Realty to find an apartment in Bay Ridge and man did Gabriel Lian do an awesome job finding exactly what we dreamed of. A friend and I came to NYC looking for apartments mid-July, since we start school in September. We spent a week with two other brokers/salespersons and we ended up wasting our time. They tried to push us into closing as quick as possible on places that we truly had little interest in. They were "okay" apartments but our hearts were just not for them up until we found Gabe at 25Realty (through NakedApartments).

We contacted him and met up with him within a day or two and he showed us some really nice places. The one thing we really liked about Gabe was that he could relate to our concerns and did not push us into making hasty decisions--he worked WITH us and he gave us the space and time we needed. He understood the market well, but understood and listened to people better. He knew exactly what we wanted and we ended up closing on a fantastic place in Bay Ridge with an awesome landlord-- which is just a plus. He really pulled through for us after some bad experiences in NYC/Brooklyn!

My friend and I would highly recommend Gabe, especially if you're looking in the Southern Brooklyn area. He listens to the people he works with and is very professional. He is honest with his advice/feedack and really understands what you are looking for without pushing his own agenda, and those traits are very rare to come by in NYC now-a-days.

Gabriel was very professional, quick, and accommodating. He responded to my initial inquiry in less than an hour and was eager to schedule an apartment viewing that would fit my work schedule. Unfortunately, I found an apartment that perfectly suited my needs and price range before meeting with him, but if I were ever in the market for an apartment again, I would not hesitate for a second to use Gabriel.

Was very helpful. Did not see any apartments because the one I wanted to see was taken. But he was quick to respond and was helpful when looking for another. Did not work out, but he was very professional.

Gabriel is a great agent. I enjoyed working with him.
He replied immediately all the time. I felt like he really cares about his clients. I've been working with many agents and they don't really care. He does.
He found me easily a good apartment. This guy has good manners and he treated us like his friends, not like customers. I appreciate that.

Gabe was very polite and professional. He didn't have a grouchy attitude most agents I worked with the past had. Although he is young , he carries himself lots of energy and a passion for the job.

Very easy going, patient and knows his real estate. He got me an apartment with no struggle. I recommend Gabriel and 25 Realty.

Working with me wasn't easy. My budget was tough to come across in today's market. I was shocked that Gabriel found 3 places for me to look at it. Very happy!
