With over three decades of experience in the service business, Gavin has built a reputation on  integrity and honesty. He wants all his clients to think of him as their "Broker for Life," and  prides himself on strong relationships and communication that are essential to his success. As the former owner of a high-end construction/contracting company in New York for 24 years, Gavin has an eye for quality and a penchant for exceeding expectations. “When I was in  construction, I surprised many of my clients with a level of quality, service and communication  they were not used to here in New York. When I apply these same principles to my real estate  business it seems to set me apart from many other agents. Quite honestly, neither contractors  nor real estate agents have very good reputations in New York so I find I continue to surprise  my clients. I like that.”  Once Gavin is your agent, you'll realize you just found a broker who will really work hard for  you. He is knowledgeable, responsive, dedicated, and tireless in his efforts to please. That's  why Gavin receives so many referrals from his loyal, satisfied clients. Besides his professional expertise in building, renovation, and residential sales, Gavin's  personal experience as a landlord, investor, and manager of several properties for other  investors affords him a powerful advantage. His complementary background in advertising and marketing also enables him to aggressively market his exclusives with a creative and distinct  edge. Originally from Jamestown, NY, Gavin holds a B.S. degree in Sociology from The King's  College in Briarcliff Manor, NY. He additionally studied advertising copywriting at The school of Visual Arts in Manhattan. Gavin resides in New York City as well as Westchester County, and  is the father of five children.

I would like to let anyone looking for an apartment in NY to contact Gavin. Generally I cringe before contacting a broker and try everything I can do to avoid them. I could not find anything for my family to live last month. I contacted several brokers on Naked Apartments and other sites. Gavin was the first to respond and the only one who understood what I was looking for. He only showed us several apartments, they were all exactly what we wanted. It only took an hour! Gavin expedited our applications and we were approved the next day. He was professional, listened to our criteria for a home and did not waste our time. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great apartment.

I wasted weeks of precious time with 6 or 7 other brokers who consistently showed me things I clearly said I didn't want to see. Not only did Gavin listen to my needs, he showed me 4 apartments that were exactly what I wanted. In addition, I am very busy and can't see apartments during the day. Gavin set up access and was showing me apartments until 9:00 at night! A true professional. Don't waste your time with anyone else. I will be buying next year and will definitely be contacting him.

I knew Gavin was going to be my broker when I contacted him about an apartment after midnight and he responded back right away! My husband and I have lived in New York our whole lives and have dealt with many brokers in the past. We have never had a broker work as hard as Gavin. We had many requirements and an impossible budget but he eventually found us the perfect place. He showed us DOZENS of apartments before we found the right one. He was very patient with us (me) even though he was so busy with other clients. I would highly recommend Gavin to anyone in need of an apartment.
