I will schedule viewings for you, and assist you with lease signing, moving in and beyond.

The vast majority of the people I work with find an apartment in one or two days of our initial meeting.  Take a moment to read what just a sampling of the people who have worked with me have to say about the experience, watch my videos and relax. You are just a couple of days away from moving in to your perfect New York City apartment!

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.

My experience with Gus was fantastic. He was able to take what I liked about a neighborhood I had experienced and find me a similar neighborhood with a price that fit my budget. He drove me around to show me the different neighborhoods and provided invaluable insight that you would never be able to get from simply looking online. I felt that Gus really did care and was looking out for my best interests throughout the entire process. And while this was very helpful with the apartment search, it was even more so when it was time to sign the lease. Gus made what I’m sure is a complicated process seem very simple and had my back every step of the way. Overall, I had a great experience and am very happy with my apartment. I can’t imagine going through this process without Gus.

Had a fantastic experience working with Gus Waite. He was very flexible and accommodating. Took into consideration exactly what my roommate and I were looking for and pulled up a great list of apartments to see. After the apartment criteria of my roommate and I changed, Gus was able to find a fitting apartment on the spot. Gus was very professional, cordial, and personable. He did a great job of showing the areas of New York City very well.

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!!
