Gus did an awesome job finding us an apartment. We are from out of town and were working with a limited time frame. Gus had multiple apartments lined up to fit our needs and we were very happy to find a great place. Gus and his associate Joon were both very nice and extremely helpful every step of the way. His customer service and professionalism were top notch. I would absolutely recommend Gus to anyone looking for an apartment in Manhattan.

Gus made the process of moving from Texas to New York much easier than we expected. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and was a pleasure to work with. He kept in constant contact prior to our trip to NYC to be sure he knew exactly what we were looking for. Gus turned an overwhelming and stressful trip into a successful experience in which we found our perfect apartment. He ensured us that we wouldn’t leave to go back to Texas without finding our ideal place to live, and he was right. We are extremely happy with Gus, and highly recommend him to anyone! Gus was sure to only show us apartments that matched our stated needs. His experience and knowledge about Manhattan was very helpful in describing the neighborhoods, the rental buildings, and any transportation concerns. Gus had our best interest at heart throughout the entire process, and thanks to him we are elated to have the perfect future home! Thanks Gus for all you have done for us!!

Gus was instrumental in our move to NYC. Coming from the Midwest, we could not have done this relocation on our own. Gus was patient and knowledgeable, going above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable.
He always made us feel like his most important clients, and never made us feel like our tight budget was an issue. He found us the perfect place, in our preferred nieghborhood, and even introduced us to our new favorite deli/sandwich shop! We will definitely use Gus again for future moves, and highly recommend him to others both familiar and unfamiliar with the NY areas.

Gus, Instead of writing a review about you, I'd just really like to sincerely thank you for all of your help and hard work in finding the right place for me. You really made this process feel so easy. I appreciated the fact that, after flying in to NY to meet you, you had an entire day planned out of places to visit in the neighborhoods I really was interested in. I was impressed that you knew I didn't have a lot of time to find a place due to my relocation schedule but what you planned out and the honest discussions we had about each place we visited really made me feel comfortable and objective. Mostly, it helped to make me patient and confident that I'd find the right place....and I did - thanks to you! Thank you again so much for all of your efforts and mostly just thank you for being able to relate well with me and what I was looking for.......Tim Slaby

Having the opportunity to work with Gus was GREAT!!! He helped to make the stressful process of apartment hunting fun and easy. From the begining he took the time to find out all the things that were important to my husband and I and really worked, searched and found us many places to look at that fell into our needs. Not only is he a complete professional, he is so knowledgable about the buildings themself and the neighborhoods, which absolutely helped us make our decision. I encourage anyone to work with Gus...he will get you the apt you're looking for!!

Not yet. We are evaluating sale of our home before re-starting our search. Gus Waite was not only professional and set up a perfect day of appointments which fit our specifications to a tee, but he was proactive, friendly, funny and smart. Not only will we use him for our continued rental search when we are ready, but also to buy a larger apartment in the coming years as we retire full time. Thanks so much to Gus for going beyond the call. Carol & Gary Levine Northampton, Massachusetts

Gus was tremendous and made the process of finding an apartment in NYC very easy. Gus is an awesome guy and one of the nicer people I have met in NYC. He was incredibly responsive and genuinely cared about finding me an apartment, regardless of a broker fee. Gus did not try to oversell me and showed me places that were in my price range and met my needs. I ended up moving to Brooklyn and did not use Gus but it was not becasue he was not a great broker. I will plan on using Gus in the future when I look for another apartment and will absolutely refer him to friends.

I would absolutely recommend Gus to anyone who is looking to rent in NYC. He was extremely professional, well prepared and really listened to exactly what we wanted. He prepared a tour for us, was really patient and explained the process. We LOVED working with him! He is without a doubt the best rental broker in NYC. If I could give him 10 stars we would!

Gus was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him! He was knowledgeable, transparent, responsive, and flexible. During the exciting and stressful time of finding an apartment in NYC, he was compassionate and seemed to share our concerns in finding the right fit. Although I went another direction, I would definitely work with him in the future if need be!

Gus initially reached out to me with an apartment that fit the criteria of what my girlfriend and I were looking for. After emailing back and forth for a while we met and got right to it. He tried his best to find us a place that we both liked and didn't give up. Gus worked tenaciously to get us an apartment that we loved. When it unfortunately did not go through he was very supportive and confident that we would find a place. Although it was not our first choice, we found a place that we can call home. Gus was great to work with overall, is very knowledgeable and friendly. He comes highly recommended from two fresh New Yorkers.

Gus has by any yardstick been the most thorough and knowledgable person in the Rental Market. I have the leases signed and hope to move forward but a family illness is stalling it. well we might have to get a bigger place. he has been overly patient and informative with us on how to assemble the right package and find the right location.. I would with conviction tell any body to use him. A real gem of a guy.

I contacted Gus because he found one of the most incredible apartments for my friend. He was helpful and friendly, and he worked his hardest to find me exactly what I was looking for. While I ended up stumbling upon another apartment through a friend, I would, without hesitation, use Gus on my next hunt.

Let's be honest when it comes to Renting in NYC you do not want to deal with a push broker who is going to tell you what to do. Of the multiple brokers I went to Gus was the only one who really let me make my mind up. He is an overall stand up guy and will tell you how it is strait up. I really don't think you will find a more responsive available broker, I dealt with a few other agency's and no one was as professional as Gus. Found me a apt that I love. You wont regret working with him I promise.

I really enjoyed working with Gus. 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, Gus immediately found me an apartment in Nolita 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, Gus is genuinely a nice guy who's easy to work with. I've already recommended Gus to a friend who's looking for an apartment in downtown Manhattan in September and I would encourage anyone else looking for a place to reach out to him as well.
