★★★★★ “Gavin is absolutely fantastic - knowledgeable, responsive and incredibly focused on customer service and a positive experience. I recommend and endorse him wholeheartedly and without reservation. To prove it...I hired him a second time, and will hire him again, too! More specifically, Gavin was very helpful with two specific issues. One, he demonstrated tremendous market knowledge when I was looking to purchase a property in New York City - after not having lived in NYC for five years. We discussed a number of different neighborhoods and price points, and he was flexible, knowledge and patient - he was a really valuable advisor. Two, Gavin has been extremely helpful 'dressing up' a rental apartment that I own in NYC and finding excellent tenants for the place. I couldn't have rented it as successfully without him. Call Gavin if you're interested in NYC real estate. He's a tremendous resource.” -- DAVID, Seller, Tudor City, New York, NY
★★★★★ “I highly recommend working with Gavin. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to New York's tough real estate market (Manhattan and Brooklyn alike) and makes the stressful process of finding a home or commercial space enjoyable. He takes the time to show you as many houses you need to see to be able to make a decision and is dedicated when it comes to helping you through the process of coming to an agreement with the seller. He will guide you through every step of buying a home and is extremely responsive. I've worked with other brokers before who tend to be rather "pushy" and have to say it was a pleasure working with Gavin. He understands the needs of a young family needing a new home equally well as finding the right space to grow your business.” -- OLIVIA, Buyer, Chelsea, New York, NY
★★★★★ “Four years ago I asked Gavin to take care of the listing for the sale of my apartment. It is one of the best decisions that I have ever made. From past experiences, I had expected the process to be somewhat trying, it was nothing of the sort. The apartment sold for above asking after only 3 days of showing. From listing to closing, Gavin and his team did an amazing job!” -- VIVIAN, Seller, Greenwich Village, New York, NY
★★★★★ “Gavin was fantastic. He took great pride in seeing us through every detail, answering questions and responding and following through on communications throughout the process. He was also very personable and made our apartment purchase a fun experience. I would recommend him to anyone!” -- KAY, Buyer, Soho, New York, NY
★★★★★ “Gavin Hammon was an absolute pleasure. He helped me and my husband buy an apartment in exactly the location we wished (our "dream" location in Manhattan). It took us only five viewings and two weekends to find the right one. He was so incredibly knowledgeable; he walked us through all the steps and set us up with all the right mortgage brokers and attorneys. We highly recommend him! “ -- SAM, Buyer, Union Square, New York, NY
★★★★★ “Gavin was extremely helpful in navigating through the daunting process of purchasing an apartment in New York City. He had the patience and commitment to take the time to search for the right place and never pressured me to rush into a decision. Furthermore, his stalwart work ethic and attention to detail ensured that nothing ever slipped through the cracks and everything was done in a timely manner, every step of the way.” -- MICHAEL, Buyer, Gramercy, New York, NY
★★★★★ “I had an amazing experience buying my property with Gavin! He helped me along every step of the way and guided me through the process professionally. He is enthusiastic, friendly, a real expert, go-getter, responsive, passionate, and has a clear vision. For a first-time home buyer and someone that worries about things even when there is nothing to worry about, my mind was always at ease working with Gavin. Any questions I had were answered in a matter of minutes. Where do you find that level of customer service these days? If you use Gavin and his team you will not be disappointed, actually, you will likely feel more at ease knowing that he is working for you. Gavin has a level of professionalism that is unparalleled. I would highly recommend him.” -- ANDREA, Buyer, East Village, New York, NY
★★★★★ "Gavin was instrumental in guiding us through the purchase process of our apartment. He was calm and insightful. Helped negotiate the final purchase price and had full knowledge of the market and its nuances. Would highly recommend Gavin to any prospective purchaser/seller." -- ROBERT, Buyer, Chelsea, New York, NY
★★★★★ “Gavin was invaluable in our search for a home: a great advisor, a patient listener, a fine negotiator. He understood our taste. To help us to find a house in an area of Brooklyn he was slightly less familiar with, he collaborated with another excellent broker, which was smart; everyone who has worked with him—including the lawyers and mortgage brokers he recommends—was excellent, and had a deep respect for Gavin, too. He made himself available at short notice and was already easy to reach and honest in his appraisals. I would highly recommend him.” -- EMILY, Buyer, Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY
★★★★★ “Gavin was always incredibly helpful and responsive. He was recommended by a friend, and he was warm and professional. He helped organize a ton of apartment visits and got me in to see things quickly. He was even willing to bike around south Brooklyn with me! He made a difficult process easier and more enjoyable. I'm so glad I found him.” -- ANNA, Buyer, Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, NY
★★★★★ “Gavin understood exactly what I was looking for and helped me find the apt of my dreams. His local knowledge and expertise were very helpful. He answered the thousands of questions I had everyday. It took us only 10 days to find the apt. I definitely recommend Gavin.” -- FLORENCE, Buyer, Fort Greene, Brooklyn, NY
★★★★★ “Gavin was both attentive and patient throughout the long process in helping me find a new home. He was very easy to work with and very available whenever I needed anything. I found him to be knowledgable about the apartment search process (including knowledge about the market and available inventory) as well as the contracting and closing processes. I would recommend him (and already have!) to friends or family looking to purchase a home.” -- GENIA, Buyer, Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, NY
