Gabe is fantastic. He is highly responsive,friendly proactive, and most importantly - HONEST. Everything in his reviews are fully disclosed, NO BAIT AND SWITCH, and is fully honest about the pros and cons of any unit. I hope I can find a unit through him, but even if I can't, Iwould HIGHLY recommend him. A+ and thank you.

Gabe exceeded my expectations. He was patient and gave me honest and strong advice. He listened to my wants and found great choices within my budget, and landed me the BEST apartment! There were multiple applications on the place, but he got the job done!
Above all else, he was a kind person and I enjoyed working with thoroughly.
Thank you Gabriel!

Gabe was great and extremely helpful, he only showed us places that were in our price range and met the requirements we were looking for (which he actually took the time to get to know/understand). He was always 100% prepared and even able to adjust on the fly when there was something else in the area that could be a potential fit.

We got very lucky through an apartment owner so we didn't end up renting through Gabe, but I know that had it not been for this, I know we would have. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants a responsible and responsive agent.

Regards,
Brian

I typically despise working with brokers because of their bait and switch antics, but Gabe is truly an honest broker. He showed me places that met the exact criteria I gave him, and did not try to sell me on ones that were outside of this criteria or above my budget. He was honest and easy to deal with, which made the nightmare of moving in NYC easier. I highly recommend him!

Gabe was a pleasure to work with. He was friendly, straight forward and very flexible. I am a young professonal who was looking for my first place in NYC. Gabe made what could have been an uncomfortable and confusing process easy to understand and stayed n constant contact every step of the way from tours to signing and even after I moved in. I recently signed a great studio in UES and I couldnt have done it without Gabe's help.

Gabriel is an excellent Broker. He definitely went above and beyond to find us the right place when we were pressed for time. He dealt with the building management company in an efficient manner and made the lease signing process quick and painless. He even made sure that our utilities were being handled properly prior to our move-in. I highly recommend Gabriel and will refer to him for future real estate needs.

He is very proactive and made himself available for us through the entire process. I really hope from now on we will have an open communication with our super and management company the same way we had with Gabe. Thanks Gabe!

Gabriel was the most responsive & courteous broker I've worked with. He immediately responded to my inquiry, found what I was looking for, and showed me several places.

Because my husband was out of town when our initial meeting was scheduled I offered to reschedule so that he wouldn't have to show the apartments twice. However, he said he had no problem showing them twice, so we kept our original appointment, and he even followed up with me to schedule a second meeting with my husband.

I think Gabe is, hands-down, the best rental agent in NY. He is knowledgable, resourceful, and responsive. And--he listens, actually listens! More importantly, he is a no-games, no-pressure type of professional. In the NYC rental world of hype, dishonesty, and bait-and-switch, Gabe is refreshingly ethical. In a short amount of time, I learned to trust that Gabe had my best interests at heart. He even negotiated an awesome deal for me. Believe me, he is rare. I will keep Gabe in my iPhone and rely on him when I, or my friends, need a man with integrity in the NYC real estate world.

Gabe was great! Not only did he return my call right away but he also gave me very useful information about the renting process in NYC. Given my lackluster experience with other brokers in NYC, I have to say Gabe actually takes personal interest in his clients needs. Through him, me and my boyfriend found a great apt on the Upper West Side.

I would def recommend Gabe to other potential renters!

Gabriel is amazing, especially compared to all the other brokers out there -- he didn't do the extremely frustrating 'bait & switch' thing, which made me instantly trust him, and he gave me frequent updates about the apartments I was considering, without being annoying or pushing me to make a decision. Unfortunately, I met Gabriel after I had already applied for an apartment (and was looking for other options in case the application would not get approved); if I hadn't, I'd definitely go with him. Highly recommended.

I recently rented a one bedroom from Gabe. I can honestly say my experience with Manhattan real estate brokers prior this has been horrendous and is the part of the moving process I dread most. Gabe was fantastic, to the point that he drove to Long Island to hand deliver my application to the landlord to ensure I didn't miss the apartment (which has happened to me before). In addition, he was impressively responsive to questions/paperwork issues, efficient with documentation/signing, didn't 'push' me aggressively before or after showing the apartment (with the usual scare tactic of 'show up with everything, you have to rent now or you may not find something' etc that so many of the brokers I've used previously have done). He also checked in after I was settled to make sure I was happy with the new place. All said, overdelivered throughout the entire process and was friendly/helpful throughout. I very rarely write reviews and can honestly say I would recommend him to family and closest friends. When I move again, I WILL be calling him first.

He responded to me promptly whenever I had any questions, was upfront and honest about the apartments he showed me, and did what he could to accommodate my requests. My boyfriend and I ended up renting a great apartment well within our price range in our desired neighborhood. Thanks Gabe!

Gabe is an extremely knowledgable and no-b******t broker. I contacted him about seeing a particular apartment. When it did not meet expectations he rescheduled his afternoon and spent an additional three hours taking me around Midtown, helping me find a place I would love.

Gabe is very personable and is interesting to talk to. An afternoon of walking all over the place would not have been so enjoyable without his company.

All in all, I recommend this broker and will use him again.

This is only a review for Gabe Mayorga.

I contacted Gabe through their website. I was interested in seeing a certain apt that he represented. He was very prompt in getting back to me and we sat up a time to view. He showed me the actual apartment that was on the website, no bait and switch. He had also looked up a few other places to show me that very day. I was interested in staying in Harlem, but he suggested the Upper East Side. He'd already demonstrated that he had my best interest in mind so I trusted his opinion.

Needless to say that the apartment that he showed me was GREAT and ended up being the place i put an application in for. I am normally skeptical about the ethics and usefulness of brokers, but Gabe definitely gives that profession a good name.

In summation, my experience with Gabe was great. He was friendly, knowledgeable and seem to like what he does. He kept in touch with me throughout the entire process via calls, texts and emails. I would highly recommend Gabe if you are looking for an apartment and I will be recommending Gabe personally to people that I know.

Worst real estate agent in NYC. I would give him zero stars if I could.I don't know how to even start off because everything went wrong. He repeatedly pushed me to keep signing leases and tried to tell me how "amazing" apartments that were falling apart were. Then, I found out he lied to me about another place I was considering and the rent magically had gone up overnight. When speaking to the other broker in charge, Gabriel knew that I was going to find out the truth and wouldn't stop harassing me via phone calls and texts. I let him know how he wouldn't be assisting me anymore. Stand clear of him and ladies especially he will try to compliment you anytime you get and give you free passes to a spa blah blah blah

I called his agency after my friend had used the same one a year ago. They connected me to his phone and we discussed what I wanted in an apartment. I said where I wanted to live and how much I wanted to spend, and afterwards he sent me three links in an email, I liked one of them and asked to see it asap, the next day we met and checked it out. It was a little small but the location was ideal (express subway a couple blocks away, etc.) So it fit the bill. In hindsight I should have looked more, but I don't have buyer's remorse so far. Next time I plan on avoiding a broker's fee, but that's not gabe's fault. We went back to sign the application, and there was some slight confusion in regard to the fee involved, but I read the form and it was pretty typical. A couple days later the lease came in and gabe waited while I went over it and made notes. I then moved in and had to call gabe to ask the building management to clean it up as it had some leftover junk on the shelves. They cleaned it up the same day, so thanks to gabe for the quick calls.
overall gabe was helpful and did a good job of making a stressful experience a little easier by answering my questions and being pleasant to talk to. He offered to help me find a no fee apt next time, which i'll likely take him up on, haha

Gabriel is driven and hungry, and you can tell. This is the best trait a broker can have - you know you can trust them to get the job done.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to ultimately rent the studio that Gabriel showed me in Harlem. This wasn't his doing, however, and he was absolutely attentive and supportive along the way. He made the process seamless and answered every question I had immediately. His turn around time and level of professionalism is impressive!

Extra points to Gabriel for showing me an apartment at 9pm, within a few hours of me texting him. He really does go above and beyond for you! I highly recommend him.

I haven't had great experiences with other brokers, but I was very immediately impressed with Gabe. He asked the right questions about what it was I was looking for and then took that and applied it to the next slate of apartments he showed me. While other brokers may try to get you above your price range or away from the area you suggested, Gabe is right on-target and all about fulfilling your needs. He's all about positive energy, which is great. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a broker for an apartment in NYC.

Gabe was absolutely amazing to work with. He found apartments within my price range and was very helpful throughout the entire process. A lot of times brokers will take you to apartments that look completely different but Gabe's apartments looked exactly like the pictures. With someone like Gabe you can sign off on the lease and be 100% confident that what you see is what you get. I have recommended him to two of my friends that will be searching for apartments within the next few months as well.

I worked with Gabe throughout February and into March. Even though we did not end up getting an apartment, he was so helpful! My boyfriend and I are waiting until June to move, but will definitely use Gabe.

I generally don't like working with brokers I meet through websites because they show you things that are not what you are looking for and out of your price range.

This happened to me with two other brokers I used before Gabe that I met through this website. He was different though. He told us his opinion on what he thought would work for us and ONLY showed us places within our budget. I highly recommend him!

He was available at all hours, and would jump at a moment's notice to show me a new listing which met my criteria. Gabe remained committed to my search and invested a tremendous amount of time until we found a wonderful apartment which met my criteria. I give him my highest recommendation.

I met many brokers amidst my search for an apartment in Manhattan, and Gabriel found me the best selection of apartments strictly within the neighborhood I was firmly attached to. Also, he was the only broker who made me feel comfortable about seeing the unit and not feel pressured in a way that often made me think twice before contacting the broker again. He is the best broker I've met. Thank you for helping me find this wonderful apartment in such a short period of time!

He showed us the actual apartment that was on the website, no bait and switch. He had also looked up a few other places to show us that first day. We met up with Gabe on our 2nd day of apartment hunting. At that time we had had no idea what we wanted/needed and Gabe was more than patient and helpful in explaining to us some of NYC's rental processes. After we met the first time we set up a time to meet with him a few days later to view more apartments after we'd decided what we liked/wanted in an apt. At the 2nd appointment Gabe showed us more places that were what we were looking for. He even showed us a few places with a listing broker. We found this very admiral because if we went with one of those apts they would have split the broker fee.
In the end we found a random apartment that Gabe hadn't shown us so we didn't go through the whole rental process with him. But our experience with Gabe was great. He was friendly, knowledgeable and seem to like what he does. He kept in touch with us well, via calls, texts and emails. I would highly recommend Gabe if you are looking for an apartment.
