Elan Gabai

"Working with Elan was a great experience, especially given the intimidating Manhattan rental market. He was a straight shooter, quick communicator, and helped me get through a couple of rounds of negotiation to a lease signing within 72hrs. Highly recommend."

Mark Tessier

“Moving back to New York this time around there was no question on who to call to find the right place..... having helped us find two previous apartments under short notice we know that Elan delivers.... He checked all the boxes we were looking for to satisfy our lifestyle needs and he said from the start that he wouldn’t settle until we were happy..... he also ensured that not a moment of our time was wasted.... there entire process was confident, smooth and successful..... “

“Elan is a tremendous professional and working with him was flawless. He quickly understood what i was looking for and was able to assist me. He was also quite supportive in the communication between me and the landlord and tried to make this a win win for both parties. From start to finish it took us 72hrs to complete the deal and i was into my new place!”

"Elan helped me find an apartment in NYC and it was his reliability and professionalism that got me there. He was responsive to all of my questions and helped me through the process not only seamlessly but promptly as well! Highly recommend his services!"

Deanna Cannella

Working with Elan made the incredibly stressful process of apartment hunting and move-in as seamless as possible. He was professional, communicative, and all around incredibly helpful. He went above and beyond, taking time to go through the lease with us, meet outside of his normal hours, even recommended a mover and told us some "insider" tips about living in our new building. Will definitely look to Douglas Elliman and Elan again for our next move.

Elan is an exceptional Real Estate broker, who helped me navigate the difficult NYC real-estate market to find a place I could call home. Through the entire process, Elan communicated with me in a clear, concise and intelligent way. Due to his efforts, I was able to find a beautiful apartment near my work. I’m exceptionally fortunate to have met Elan and am thankful for all of his wonderful services.

Elan was recommended to me by a friend, and once we met, he did a superb job of helping me to find, purchase and move into a new coop apartment. He really listened when I explained what I was looking for in terms of size, style, and location, and patiently showed me totally suitable choices. He was thorough in offering me a range of options, but he did not waste my time. Elan was a pleasure to work with, efficient, knowledgeable, detail-oriented and totally professional. Moving can be a nightmare. Elan gave me confidence. And I could not be happier in my new place.

Elan Gabai was a pleasure to work with. His ease and affability made our experience with him effortless and fun from our first meeting. In addition to showing us the apartment that we have now signed a lease on, he was pro-active in saying that if we weren't interested in the first one that he would be happy direct our subsequent search until we found our home.

Michael Hartman

Elan Gabai worked with us throughout February, 2013 to locate an apartment in Manhattan. During this time, he impressed us with his strong professional behavior, including his knowledge of the market, low-pressure salesmanship and good-humored patience. He listened carefully to what we were looking for and helped us refine our search until we found it. We will happily recommend him in the future.

Thank you again! I am extremely appreciative of all of your help in this process. Was truly a pleasure to work with you and I will gladly refer anyone to you, next time I hear someone is in the market for a new apartment. You are a true professional!


Austin Shuster

Elan was wonderful to work with. He was incredibly flexible with our hectic schedules and took the stress out of apartment hunting. He showed us multiple great properties with everything we asked for even though the initial apartment we had wanted to see was quickly gone. He made this process easy and comfortable. I would highly recommend working with Elan Gabai.

Scott Saltiel

Scott did an amazing job helping us find our first home in the city. He was able to organize and show us a great variety of properties in the areas and price points we were interested in. He never came across as pushy but always managed to give his expert opinion along with the pluses and minuses of each property we saw.

When our favorite New Development didn’t have the layout we wanted available from the sponsor, Scott was able to find an off market resale that wasn’t allowed to be publically advertised. This apartment wasn’t available on Street Easy or any other online listing service. This apartment was only available to the broker community and made realize the value in working with a top broker like Scott.

Once we decided on placing a bid on the property Scott was extremely diligent in providing us with building and neighborhood comparables. He walked us through the process and was even able to refer us to several attorneys and mortgage bankers.

Working with Scott was a terrific experience!! I will not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to my friends and family.

Michael H

Scott was a pleasure to work with. He understood our needs and brought us to apartments that were both within our price range and fit all of our criteria. He went well beyond the services of a broker and was always extremely knowledgeable about the various areas of the city. I highly recommend him and will certainly use him in the future.

Margaret (Maggie) Frankel

My experience with Maggie was outstanding. Maggie's go getter attitude resulted in finding my husband and I before we knew we were ready to start the selling process. Maggie worked with us on a personal level, staying in touch with us as we got closer to being ready to sell our apartment. Throughout that time, she educated us on the market which enabled us to be fully knowledgeable when it was time to list.

Maggie's personal attention, professionalism, and communication of what buyers are looking for was key in selling our home so quickly. We recommend Maggie to anyone who is looking for a dedicated and knowledgable real estate broker!

Jaime and Ryan Strahlendorff

Maggie was an invaluable source of knowledge through the entire coop sublease process. The relevant applications and agreements are complex, leaving room for error. Maggie was incredibly thorough and made sure we checked everything off that needed to be completed prior to handing over my keys. She definitely went above and beyond.

Maggie is down to earth and easy to talk to. As someone who had no sublet experience, I found it so helpful to have Maggie as my realtor
