Customer Testimonial

Evy Yan Lin

Seller Rating:

Evy Yan Lin was a very professional agent and it was a pleasure working with her. She can speak both English and Mandarin, which is a huge plus for my mother. She is a very good translator between the two languages and also very knowledgeable about the terms of the contracts and the process of selling the house so it was easy to work with her. I would recommend her to another friend to use her. - Jennifer Pei Lin, 217-02 November 2017

Richard Gambino

Seller Rating:

Richard Gambino did a great job!

He did a lot of leg work and had patience, He is also knowledgeable and was able to coordinate with everyone. He will be recommended to anyone who needs his services. - Jem Nti New York October 2017

Nina Kim

Seller Rating:

I dealt with Nina and her mother previously, when I first purchased this property and each time I rented it during the some 11 years that I owned it. Each time I was totally satisfied with the competent service I received.

I am a retired real estate attorney with over 35 years experience and dealt with numerous brokers and Nina and her mother are among the top notch of real estate agents I dealt with.

Personally and professionally, they were fabulous.

On this particular transaction, Nina was particularly helpful in dealing with the condo's managing agent and getting the needed common charge/waiver letter (which due to timing of the buyer's loan clearance had to be revised several times), the indemnity regarding violations and insurance certificate. - Alex S. Avitabile, Brook July 2017

Richard Gambino

Buyer Rating:

Richard Gambino was excellent throughout the process. We hit a few road blocks along the way with the seller but Richard was able to work through them efficiently. What really stands out about Rich is his work ethic and personalized approach. He helped move the process along every step of the way and did not hesitate to get his hands dirty when required. He was very open from the beginning and presented all information truthfully, a characteristic that has been ever so decreasing among sales agents and brokers in the real estate arena. - Jonathan Niyazov, Hewlet August 2017

Richard Gambino

Buyer Rating:

Richard was very professional and patient throughout this whole purchase. He constantly kept in touch with us as to the progress of the purchase. This sale was very unique in that the seller had past away. The purchase from start to finish took over a year. He was in touch with us throughout the whole time to let us know of the updates. I would highly recommend him in the future to anyone that is looking to buy or sell. - Warren Cheng June 2017

Richard Gambino

Seller Rating:

Richard is very knowledgable . My husband & I felt very confident. There was not a question we asked regarding pricing, tenant questions, his opinion on property values. We truly felt confident that he knew what he was talking about. He has expertise in his field and it shows

There were a couple of times when we needed an electrician for the property . I called Richard in a panic, he called me back immediately . He always had the right people to call to fix whatever problem came up with the property . We felt he gave us excellent advice when we had any concerns. He is very confident of his knowledge and this made us feel very confident & secure. We really feel Richard always had our best interests at heart.

Richard Gambino is extremely professional. He made the entire process of selling the property very easy. Richard was "on call" at all times. There was never a time that I had a question or an issue and he did not text me back or call me back immediately . Any question we had , Richard always had the answer . My husband and I have sold 3 other properties through the years, I can honestly say, Richard was the best agent we've ever had. - Tina, New York August 2016

I can't say enough about Richard Gambino. He is a true professional that made our selling of this home a pleasant experience. He went above and beyond for this transaction to go smoothly. I highly recommend Richard. - Debbie Maaas, Quogue, Ne June 2016

Richard Gambino

Seller Rating:

Richard was absolutely amazing.!!!!

My brother and I were selling my mom's house of 53 years.

After being told by a Manhattan agent the house was worth $500k, I met with Richard. Richard keenly knows that area, he is in tune with who would be purchasing in that neighborhood and their expectations.

We signed with Richard listing it at $800k. I sold above asking in about a week. We were indeed impressed. He was a source of much advice as to what to be concerned about or not be. Having grew up in the neighborhood he was keenly insightful. He's talent had us impressed at every step. Thank you!! - Johannes Knoops, Assoc A April 2016

Richard Gambino

Seller Rating:

Selling our family home was emotionally difficult for us. Richard Gambino understood this from the start and took time to listen to our concerns and thoughts while continuing the task at hand. The plan he developed with us was exact and true , leading to a successful sale in a short time. We would strongly recommend his services to our family , friends and neighbors. - Donna And Frank, Maspeth February 2016

Richard Gambino

Seller Rating:

Richard was nothing but helpful, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. Our home took a little while longer than expected to sell, but this was due to a drawn out eviction, and not Mr.Gambino's fault. He was courteous, very quick to answer any and all questions we had, and found a buyer for us in a VERY short amount of time. We would (and do) highly recommend Richard to all of our family and friends, as well as to anyone who may be looking to buy or sell a home. - Janis And Marcin, Maspet December 2015

Richard Gambino

Seller Rating:

I appreciate that he wasn't obnoxiously aggressive like so many others I have dealt with. - . E December 2014
