This was my first time renting in NYC and Gabriel was very helpful!! He was available practically 24/7 to answer all my questions and kept me updated throughout the process. Highly recommend!

I feel so lucky to have found Gabriel. He made the process stress free and took plenty of time to work with me. I found my apartment the first day I looked. Gabriel is a good listener and thoughtful about what his clients are looking for. Call him!

Gabriel he is such a gentleman and knowledgeable. He is very patient and kind, he will explain each of the apartments good or concerned. He is very care about our feelings, also the most words he said is: "When you walk into an apartment, you will have a feeling or not, if you have the feeling that THIS IS WHAT I WANT! Then this is just you are looking for." I believe this and I found the apartment have the feeling: THIS IS WHAT I WANT!
Thank you Gabriel, nice work with you!

I had worked with a few other brokers before Gabriel and had found nothing....so far away from what I wanted....I felt like crying, seriously!!
I met with Gabriel and after a brief meeting at his office he put together a few options that were tailored to me.

I'm sooooo happy...Moving in on the 1st

Gabriel was a pleasure, he found me the perfect apartment without any fuss. I came from Florida with my father and only had the weekend to find an apartment. After only one afternoon, BINGO!!
A sweet one bedroom right in the middle of everything. I'm so excited to move in, thank you Gabriel!!

requested to be met at his office instead of the apartment i was interested in. when i politely asked to make an exception and to meet at the apartment instead, because his office is nowhere near the apartment at a very inconvenient location he stopped replying and never got back to me.

Finding an apartment in NYC is no easy task. I reached out to many brokers and
talked with them over the phone. I even had my roommate meet with a few other
brokers to look at apartments, prior to meeting with Gabriel. Collectively, my
roommates and I looked at over 6 apartments. We found the perfect apartment upon
the first meeting with Gabriel.

I can honestly say that Gabriel was extremely professional and efficient in
communicating with me. He also understood and took into account our budget to
help us find the perfect fit. I highly recommend Gabriel if you are looking for
an apartment!

The broker didn't want to show me the apartment unless I signed a contract with his company. He also stated this was New York's law to protect myself. I imagine every other firm in the city is breaking the law then...

Gabriel Owens Responded:
The form I requested he sign is a disclosure form given by the department of state. It states on the front in bold letters THIS IS NOT A CONTRACT!!
It is a form that states that I work for you not the landlord, hence it is in your best interest that I present it to you. THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE MAKES IT MANDATORY THAT WE PRESENT IT TO YOU AND GET IT SIGNED.
IT PROTECTS YOU, ALL THE OTHER AGENTS YOU DEALT WITH SHOULD HAVE PRESENTED IT TO YOU!! It is the law.

Gabriel was extremely prompt, courteous and helpful throughout our entire rental process. He was always available and happy to schedule appointments around my busy work schedule. A very knowledgeable and personable agent. We would highly recommend him for your next move!

I really enjoyed working with Gabriel. After having gone out looking for apartments with a couple of different brokers, neither of whom were able to show me apartments that fit my parameters, Gabriel immediately found me an apartment in Soho that was exactly what I was looking for. He responded promptly to my initial inquiry, was flexible in accommodating my schedule in terms of viewing the apartment, and once I had agreed to take it he was extremely responsive in helping me prepare the paperwork (this was my first time renting an apartment in New York City). Plus, Gabriel is genuinely a nice guy who's easy to work with. I've already recommended Gabriel to a friend who's looking for an apartment in downtown Manhattan in April and I would encourage anyone else looking for a place to reach out to him as well.

Although Gabriel was very courteous in correspondence, finding out the availability of the apartment listed was a bit like pulling teeth and I was up front about how my time was very limited due to travel.

He required that I meet in his office first--something that some agents require and others don't--and I implored him to be up front about the availability, as the idea of going all the way to his office just to find out the unit I wanted most was not available would have been very upsetting. Of course, after I said this, the place was no longer available. I'd like to think he was being honest the entire time, but prior experience leaves me skeptical.

Gabriel is the first broker I've worked with that I felt actually earned his broker's fee. He's incredibly prompt, friendly, genuine, flexible, and not pushy in the least. He hooked us up with a perfect apartment in the neighborhood we wanted at a price we knew we couldn't beat anywhere else. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I cannot rave about Gabriel enough. The process from my initial inquiry through the day I signed a lease was 6 days total. I sent dozens of emails to broker's, and Gabriel was the only person who called me immediately instead of just sending a form email asking me my income and credit information. He made me feel like a person. Not only was he warm and personable, but Gabriel was also professional--he didn't waste my time by showing me just the apartment that I asked for. He showed me things below my price point and above so that I had a thorough comparison.

I will definitely recommend him to all of my friends for their rental searches. He went above and beyond throughout the course of this week to meet me near my home to retrieve papers, calling or texting me to keep me informed about the process, and helping me obtain my dream apartment.

I highly, and unequivocally, recommend Gabriel.

My fiance and I were looking for a 1BR and had specific ideas in mind for what we wanted. I contacted Gabriel after seeing one of his listings. His emails have always been polite, courteous and professional. He is also pleasant and nice to work with in person, too. We found our new apartment on our first day viewing places with him. It was a positive and efficient process overall. We recommend working with him!

I’m a busy executive level professional who recently moved into an amazing apartment in central Manhattan with Gabriel’s help. I had very high expectations and had seen quite a few agencies already without being able to come up with anything even close.
Gabriel on the other hand worked round the clock to find me the perfect place, ensuring that my time was not wasted in the looking process (he did the work) and then also ensured the application went through smoothly. I could not be happier with my new home! I found him to be extremely efficient, personable and trustworthy, listening carefully to my needs and coming up with a few great tips. Recommended! This is my fifth apartment in Manhattan but I hope to stay in this one for a very long time!

I was very disappointed in this interaction (or lack thereof) I too am a native New Yorker, and as such expect people to be conscious of other people's time in such a fast paced city.
I went to go meet with Gabriel after inquiring about a rental, he asked me to come meet at the office (all the way in midtown) then did not even meet me in person but sent his very curt associate in a classic bait and switch. They stated the apartment was not worth seeing but I should give them all my info and see what they could find. I had asked specifically whether the apartment I saw listed here was stlll available for viewing. They could have told me it wasn't over the phone and saved my precious 2 hours I took off work. Awful business practice!!! Don't waste your time.

I've met with many brokers but I have yet to come across one that's as good as Gabriel Owens, he's on top of the his game and has great listings. Since, he's a native New Yorker, he knows the city very well and has a lot of connections. Gabriel is very easy to get along with, has a great sense of humor and I'm looking forward to using him again in my future real estate needs.
