We had a wonderful time working with Gustavo. He was willing and able to work around our hectic work schedule to meet us and sign paperwork. Only downside is no online signing of paperwork. He was always in constant contact with us throughout the entire process. Even when showing other people properties, if we had questions he was willing and able to answer in a timely matter.

Gustavo was great. I was wary of getting involved with a broker during my apartment hunt but he was very helpful and well worth it.

I had a great experience working with Gustavo and highly recommend his services .. He helped me find a great apartment within my budget. I found him to be personable, patient and knowledgeable of the area and he always responded immediately to all of my questions/requests. Gustavo made the whole process quick and easy and before I knew it the process was done and I was moved into my new apartment. I won't hesitate to recommend him to my friends and he will be the first call I make should I decide to move again in the future

Gustavo was kind and patient with me, not to mention he has a great sense of humor too. He showed me many great apartments and accommodated me when my budget changed. He understood exactly what I was looking for in an apartment and in a neighborhood. When I was away for work, he worked diligently with me to ensure that the management corp. for the apartment I wanted receieved my money. Ultimately I ended up with exactly what I wanted at the right price. I would definitely recommend him as an agent!

Gustavo made the process of renting very easy, from seeing the apartment, to processing the paperwork to signing the lease. It was quick and easy. He explained everything on the lease, and any do's or don't from the building management. Thanks Gustavo!

I am pleased on how Gustavo was able to find me an apartment. It really pleased me because I was in a desperate situation where my lease was going to end within 3 days and a original apartment wasted my time so I was drowning. I called him on a Saturday, met with him on the same day and completed the paperwork. On Tuesday, I got approved and I signed the lease. Because of him, I was able to move in the next day instead of two days and everything went well. I am really appreciative of his help and I recommend anyone who is looking for an apartment to reach out to Gustavo.

Gustavo was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He walked me and my fiancé through the entire process with patience and precision. He was the best agent I've dealt with and I recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment. He got us approved within 24 hours and we are moving in a few weeks. We can't thank him enough!! He even came back and re-opened his office after hours to start filling out the application. Five stars for honesty, patience and professionalism!!!

Gustavo was the best realtor I have ever worked with. I had to move fairly quickly, but I also have a very demanding work schedule and am not available during the day. Gustavo was incredibly accommodating and helped me after hours and on Sundays. He found me an apartment with all the options I wanted, for well within my budget. Everything went very smoothly and I am now in my new apartment. Thank you!

Gustavo was great. Showed me an apartment I'm in the process of signing the lease for and kept me updated throughout the process.

The only reason I gave four instead of five stars is because I haven't signed the lease yet.

It was a pleasure to deal with Gustavo. He helped us to find an apartment that exactly meets our needs and budget within a very short time frame. Gustavo has the best selection of high-quality apartments. He is always on time and always does what he promises. He kept us informed about every detail throughout the whole process, even AFTER we signed the lease. Gustavo provided us with many tips regarding living in Forest Hills, including supermarkets, schools, and parks. He is very professional and courteous. We highly recommend Gustavo!!!

ALL I AM GOING TO SAY ABOUT GUSTAVO IS THAT HIS A SCHOLAR AND A HERO BECAUSE THIS GUY KNOWS WHAT HE DOES AND VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE WITH THE HOUSING MARKET. I STARTED LOOKING FOR A PLACE IN QUEENS SINCE JUNE AND COULDN'T FIND ANY PLEASANT APARTMENT THAT WAS SUITABLE FOR MY FAMILY; I USED VARIOUS AGENTS BUT NONE OF THEM REALLY MADE ANY MAGIC FOR ME EXCEPT GUSTAVO. I GAVE HIM ONE CALL AND HE SET UP 3 APARTMENTS FOR ME TO VIEW THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY AND I FOUND MY DREAM APARTMENT OUT OF THE 3 CHOICES IN KEW GARDENS. PLEASE I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE. I WILL ACTUALLY COME BACK TO HIM WHEN I AM LOOKING FOR A HOUSE IN THE NEAR FUTURE. HE TELLS YOU ALL THE FEES INVOLVED BEFORE YOU PROCEED TO VIEWING ANY RENTALS SO THAT YOU ARE AWARE AND NOT BE SURPRISED WHEN IT'S TIME TO FILL OUT THE APPLICATION. THANK YOU GUSTAVO MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

I highly recommend working with Gustavo Curbelo. He is professional and experienced with the Forest Hills market & surrounding Queens areas. Gustavo understood exactly what I was looking for in a building and showed me quality apts within my budget. Gustavo provided me with info. about the types of buildings & management co.s in the area. He also kept me updated on new listings that freshly came on to the market and was readily available via phone and text to show units at the times that were best for my schedule. More importantly, Gustavo explained all the fees associated with renting upfront and facilitated the paperwork for me in an efficient manner. Gustavo is friendly, hard working and quick to help customers find a home in a short time frame. He is an overall top agent in Forest Hills and I will recommend his services to anyone. He helped me find a great large one 1 bedroom apt and I'm a happy renter.

Gustavo was wonderful to work with. I was moving from out of state and he always answered my emails, texts, and calls on time! He found me a great apartment in the neighborhood I wanted and within my budget. I really liked working with him, because he didn't try to show me only the apartments that close to my max budget. His focus was on finding me a great place and not on his commission/fee. He is trustworthy and I highly recommended him to anyone looking for an apartment in Queens. :)

Gustavo was a fantastic broker. He showed us a wide range of apartments within the price range, location and amenities we wanted. He was honest and not too pushy. I really appreciated the fact that he listened to us and didn't show us anything we wouldn't seriously consider. It was a pleasure working with Gustavo and I highly recommend him to anyone.

Gustavo made us feel very comfortable and made sure to help us find exactly what we were looking for. He was not pushy at all and was extremely professional. We would highly recommend him for anyone looking for an apartment in the area. After we lost an apartment because we waited too long to apply, he helped us find one better than what we had initially wanted.

If I could give Gustavo more than five stars, I would. After making the decision to move back to NYC, I began my apartment search. (I had lived here for six years prior and had worked with other brokers in the past...) Upon landing in NYC, I ran back to my past brokers who this time around weren't the best fit for me. Being an out-of-state candidate, I've always said it's harder to find an apartment in this city than it is to find a job! Stressed out and ready to give up and fly back to Minneapolis, I found Gustavo who immediately welcomed and assisted me. I told him I wanted a one-bedroom in Forest Hills and gave him my price range. He did absolutely everything he could to help me in a respectful and professional manner. Within fifteen minutes, he had several apartments for me to view and drove me to see them. Unfortunately because I had not acted quick enough, I wasn't able to get any of the apartments which was my own fault. This is NYC - when you see an apartment you like, you must jump on it! One week later, Gustavo got back in touch with me stating he had another apartment available that he thought I'd like. He sent me all details and photographs. Believe it or not - I ended up taking the apartment sight unseen and only went by the photographs. I faxed all paperwork back and got the apartment 24 hours later. Less than a week later, I flew back to NYC to sign a lease. Without Gustavo's help, I never would have found a place. He did absolutely everything he could to help me including going out of his way several times on his after work hours by answering my questions, etc. and always very promptly. He is extremely professional, honest, and trustworthy. There are so many scams in NYC and I always recommend him to anyone seeking an apartment. I absolutely love my apartment and Gustavo is now on my speed-dial for future! Thank you, Gustavo!

After looking around for a new place and calling a few real estate agents, I luckily found Gustavo Corbelo. He took his time to understand me, my situation and what I was looking for. I called Gustavo on Sunday morning, later that day he showed me the apartment, that night I had the application in my inbox, and by Monday afternoon I was approved for my new apartment. Gustavo immediately responded to every single one of my calls, texts and questions. He was very helpful and worked very hard to get me the apartment that was right for me. I would recommend him to anyone and will use him from now on. Thank you Gustavo.
