Giselle was wonderful to work with. I'm relocating to the city after recently graduating college, and really had no idea where to begin. After trying and failing with a few other brokers, I was very discouraged after falling for scams and dealing with many disrespectful people. A friend recommended I try Giselle and she made the process incredibly easy. Despite my budget restrictions, she found me a dream apartment. She made everything stress free for me and my roommate, who is currently living across the country, which made the situation very complicated. In a time crunch, she worked tirelessly to find us several places to fit our needs, and I couldn't be happier! I had a nearly impossible task- a nice, safe, affordable apartment with a short commute to work and only two weeks to spare before move in, and she delivered much more than I thought was possible. Any young, busy, professionals moving to the city would greatly benefit from her empathy, skills, and efficient work. Thank you so much, Giselle!!

Giselle is AMAZING. My boyfriend, our friend and I were looking for a true two bedroom apartment. We were from Boston, so we only had one weekend to look for apartments. Giselle made the process so easy. She worked with me beforehand to understand what I liked and did not like in an apartment, and put together about 5 viewings for us in one day, all of which were great apartments. In the week leading up to our visit, she took countless phone calls from me and answered all of my questions. Giselle was the most down to earth and honest realtor I spoke to during my apartment search. I expected apartment hunting to be a nightmare, but Giselle actually managed to make it quite an enjoyable day. When we found the apartment we wanted Giselle did everything she could to make sure we would get the apartment. I have recommended Giselle to my friends, and would definitely recommend her to anyone out there looking for an apartment in the city. If you want an easy process, someone who takes the time to answer all of your questions and walk you through the process, and realtor who is going to be completely real and honest with you, then Giselle is your person. Thank you Giselle! You were great.

Giselle did an excellent job helping me find my new apartment. She was honest, straightforward and extremely pleasant to work with. She really took the time to find apartments that fit exactly what I was looking for, in the neighborhood that I wanted to be in. As a result of her working hard to find the right apartments to look at, the entire apartment search only last a couple of days. In addition, when I finally found the perfect apartment, she assisted in the rent negotiation process and went out of her way to ensure that I got the exact lease terms that I was hoping for. She is a no nonsense agent that is actually enjoyable and fun to work with. Something that is hard to find in the New York rental market. I will absolutely use Giselle for any of my future rental needs.

I am so lucky to have stumbled upon one of Giselle’s listings while apartment searching in NYC. In a market full of bait and switches and untrustworthy agents, Giselle was a breath of fresh air. She worked diligently to find my fiancé and me the perfect apartment in the West Village. Not only did she find exclusive listings that weren’t widely advertised, but she actually previewed the apartments in advance for I was out of state, to be sure the apartment fit my search requirements. Furthermore, when I gave her a rather wide price point range, she didn’t immediately jump to my highest price point and try to sell us on the most expensive apartment. She actually searched for the right apartment for us in the lower end and middle of our price range. Something that most NYC agents do not do. Giselle then went above and beyond her call of duty (after our lease was already signed!) by conducting the walk-through of our apartment while we were out of town, to be sure the apartment was in top condition and move-in ready upon our return. I cannot recommend her enough – she absolutely made the daunting NYC apartment searching process the smoothest and most enjoyable that I’ve experienced. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Giselle was fantastic. My roommate and I had a unique situation to deal with and she was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. She even gutted out a bit of a stomach bug to walk down to the management company and submit our application with us! Absolute gem!

While I never ended up renting from Giselle, she was very nice and quick at responding. In the fast pace of rentals in NYC, having someone getting back to you quickly is a huge plus. She was honest and provide me with additional advice which was appreciated.

To whom ever reading my reviews and responses...this client and myself spoke after this review was written and found that there was a misunderstanding. This client was looking for a true 2 bedroom apartment located in the East Village that could accomodate a family, 50lb dog and a king size bed @ $2800-3000 budget. I did the best I could and kindly emailed the options I had. Client was open and agreed to view what I had. Later, I followed up and they said they found something else! :-D

Giselle was a real pleasure to be around! The apartment hunting thing is a real hassle and can be very stressful here in Manhattan. Being around her I laughed and felt like I was hanging out with a friend the whole time. She did her best to show me the best options for me and am thankful for that. By end of day I was signing my lease for my apartment in Gramercy!!! Work with her she's fun!

Giselle, was the broker who helped me find my amazing apartment on the UES. I had heard nightmares from moving out of state and she made the process so easy and delightful. I couldn't be happier with her services she truly is in it to help people find their dream homes.
