Peter Guirguess. Remember that name. He works out of the Bond New York office located in Union Square.

Finding the right apartment in Manhattan is a daunting exercise for even the most savvy New Yorker. I have lived here a long time, have been involved in LOTS of apartment searches both with and without brokers, and I have never had a better experience than working with Peter Guirguess of Bond.

First: He listened to my requirements, which were deceptively simple.. But when is the last time you gave someone your list of "must haves" and they listened to you? Not only did he listen, but he didn't waste my time or his time in showing me apartments that I would not even consider.

Second: No pushing. I'm pretty good at making up my mind. We looked at a number of potential apartments the first day, and when I said something wasn't what I wanted, Peter didn't try to "sell" me on the apartment. Instead, he paid attention to what I did and didn't like so that he could use that information to find apartments that better fit my needs.

Third: Peter knows his inventory and his neighborhoods. He pointed out "pro" and "con" elements in neighborhoods and buildings we considered, and went out of his way to look at apartments just coming on the market so I wouldn't have to go look at places that didn't fit my needs.

As Peter showed me apartments, he brought an energy and excitement that was truly genuine. He basically "called his shot" and told me the apartment I eventually rented within ten minutes of
our just meeting! Peter showed me many apartments and displayed knowledge of each Landlord, as well as pointed out which landlords required extra security deposits, which ones had an easy approval (this was essential to my search), which ones were priced below market cost, and many other useful details that can only come from having a lot of experience.

Peter Guirguess is a cut above every other broker I have used. He is smart, personable, considerate, professional, and takes pride in matching you to the apartment you really want. I give Peter my highest recommendation - I will not hesitate to send my friends and family to him.

My experience with Peter Girguess has been nothing short of amazing. My two roommates and I were referred to Peter from a friend who had moved to the city a year earlier (who gave Peter a stellar review), and I genuinely have to say we are so happy that we reached out to him.

Peter has been attentive and helpful every step of the way. He walked us through listings and has been honest and up front with us since our first call. Not only did he explain the process to us clearly, but he stayed within our budget and worked with us to find the apartment of our dreams (actually beyond our dreams, because we thought we would get a much smaller space for our budget). Peter is quick, efficient, honest, respectful, respectable, and professional. He goes out of his way to make sure you are satisfied and goes out of his way to make things easy for his clients. During our apartment viewings, he gave us his honest opinions and worked with us to ensure we were happy.

When it came down to signing our lease, my two roommates and I have different schedules and couldn't all go to the office to sign together, so Peter took the time to go out of his way and bring a copy of the lease to each of us individually at our offices. I have never heard of any broker going out of their way like that. He has been such a pleasure to work with, and I would recommend him to anyone searching for an apartment in Manhattan.

Refused to show me the apartment listed on the website without showing me others as he said it was not a good use of his time.

Peter is an excellent agent. He was on point from our first contact and was still happy to offer help after we were all settled in. I am from Manhattan and needed a savvy agent that wasn't going to waste time showing us the run of the mill. Every place we toured got better and better. He saved me time and anxiety. He earned every penny of his fee as well as our trust and respect. I recommend Peter to anyone who needs quality and service.

Peter was very rude in our communications and refused to show me an apartment because he did not want to travel "60 blocks".

Peter Guirguess Responded:
From the "reviewer" Ok great. My cell is XXXXXXXXXX. See you tomorrow at 6:45 at 82nd and 1st. I don't think I'll have time to look at others after that one because I have another appointment, but if you send me some listings, maybe we can pick a time to meet over the weekend. Thanks! Anna

- Unfortunately, showing one single apartment is not effective. I tend to show my clients many options. If someone only has Fifteen minutes to view apartments, I'd prefer they call me when they have time

Peter is a great agent. He was as invested in getting me an apartment in Manhattan as I was. He rode his bike across the city just to meet me at a place that was just coming onto the market. He also offered to help move stuff into my apartment after I signed my lease. I was so grateful for all his help, I wouldn't have been able to find an apartment without him.

Peter is terrific! I had very specific criteria for an apartment with respect to location, price point, and move in date. Peter was in continual contact with me, notifying me as soon as prospective apartments hit the market, so I was able to immediately view and nab the perfect apartment in Hell's Kitchen. He is very persistent, diligent, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. HIghly recommend.
