Gabriella Santoro

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Gabriella is thrilled to bring her extensive knowledge of New York properties and savvy negotiating style to work for you. She has a deep appreciation of the physical and cultural architecture of New York and has lived in a variety of structures across three boroughs. A native New Yorker, she was born, raised, and educated in New York City as were her parents, paternal grandparents and great-grandparents before her (when asked, Gabriella says: no, we did not leave New York, why would we?).

As a BOND sales agent, her primary focus is townhouse, Co-Op and condominium sales, however, as a New Yorker, she has moved many times and understands what it is like to rent in this fabulously intricate city. Before her real estate career, she worked in health and social science research. Educated in psychology, she earned a B.A. from Columbia University and a M.A. from the New School for Social Research. She also lived and worked abroad while earning a M.A. in Creative Writing from Bar-Ilan University, with a focus in poetry.

Gabriella’s experiences have shaped her as both an avid listener and a sharp negotiator. Her determination and attention to detail ensure a smooth and efficient process from the initial contact to closing. Here in New York, there is a home for everyone, but it can take perseverance. Whether you are looking to buy or sell, Gabriella will be your guide and advocate through it all.

Gaby was fantastic as my real estate agent. I'd been looking for several years when she started working with me, and she helped me kick my search into high gear. Over 12 months, she found and took me to dozens of properties, learning each time (along with me!) a little more about what was really important to me. When we found the apartment I eventually purchased, I was already prepared with all of my necessary documents, thanks to Gaby's guidance. She is patient, sharp, thorough, and kind. She knew what questions to ask, and more importantly, guided me through the process in a way that took care of both the practical elements (what to offer, how to prepare, what factors to consider) and the emotional elements (how did I feel, how did that inform what I should do, why I should or shouldn't be concerned about any given part of the process). I STRONGLY recommend buying a home with Gaby. She is a great partner for a first-time home buyer, and I would also use her for any future home purchases.

Gabriella made renting the perfect apartment in NYC easy and enjoyable. She was professional and worked hard for us. We will definitely be using Gabriella again.

Gabriella is genuinely helpful and a pleasure to work with. She understood our various parameters immediately and was persistent and patient when dealing with the various other parties involved in the house-buying process. She answered our (many) queries promptly and concisely and didn't seek to push us in any particular direction. She is intelligent, honest, and down-to-earth, and has a calm, reassuring presence (maintained even when we had our five-year old son in tow). Finally, as others here have remarked, she also has a usefully comprehensive knowledge of New York City neighborhoods. Gabriella has earned our enthusiastic endorsement.

Gabriella was excellent. She made herself available immediately when we had to buckle down and find an apartment under severely limited time constraints. She listened to our needs and wants in terms of location, price, etc., and followed up with the buildings we were interested in in a very timely fashion. Plus, Gabriella is very knowledgeable about various neighborhoods in NYC, which makes the whole experience much easier for stressed/overwhelmed clients. All in all, a very positive experience and we would highly recommend Gabriella to anyone looking to rent or buy in NYC.

Gabriella was incredible. She exhibited completely amazing wisdom, tenacity, kindness, energy, and flexibility. She had enormous professionalism and encyclopedic knowledge of the New York neighborhoods, of her clients, and how the system works. I give her my highest recommendation, and would work with Gabriella any time.

If your thinking of going at it alone, I strongly suggest you don't! Gabriella was referred by a dear friend and I can only sing of her accolades and pass this referral along to you. Gabriella was a wonderful, supportive agent who helped guide me through the maze of home ownership. She appropriately assessed my home needs, and pre-arranged the viewings, which met my criteria: size, price range, location. She relieved all the burdens associated with buying a home. Really, who knew? Need a mortgage? No problem, she has a working relationship with a few lenders. She dealt with the seller's broker, (a headache in and of itself) and helped move the transaction along smoothly. She alerted me to potential problems and gracefully redirected the process when I went astray. She was calm, assuring and explained the pros and cons of every decision I contemplated. I can assure you, if you are like myself, a busy workaholic, with zero patience for mankind in general, going with Gabriella is the home buying LIFE LINE you need!!! Without her, I would have definitely sabotaged the deal and missed out the PERFECT HOME and SWEET MORTGAGE RATE. While most of my friends cried about the horrors of buying, I can tell you, it was a walk in the park with Gabriella Santoro!
