Chirag and his team were recommended to us from a friend whose house he had previously sold, and after interviewing several other large agencies we choose to work with Gateway Realty. There was work that needed to be done and my daughter had to relocate and she is not the easiest person to work with. Chirag and his team were very patient and took all the necessary steps for me to maximize our profits. Chirag had found and managed all the contractors to work in the house, saved us money were he could, and we ended up walking away with money when we expected a loss. His team was great in finding my daughter and grand children a new home.

Their marketing team went above and beyond anything we had expected. Their photographer took pictures that had us amazed, along with a full video of the home which really made my home stand out.

I live in St Louis and I felt that I was in constant communication with Chirag and his team. If you are looking for a very personable group of forward thinkers these are the right guys to hire.

I highly recommend Vittina Ruggiero to anyone. She is very professional and courteous. Vittina is very knowledgeable of the market, and in my case was very knowledgeable of the neighborhood as well as of period homes. She worked hard to promote my house and bring in prospective buyers through advertising, word-of-mouth, and by holding multiple open houses. Vittina is a great negotiator; she works well with other agents and goes above and beyond to get her client the best deal possible.

Tina is a fantastic real estate agent and she is by far the best agent I have ever come across simply because she understands her responsibly is to serve her clients’ interest. Tina has a strong ethical and moral compass demonstrating high integrity from the first time we met and went out to see homes to the day I closed on the purchase of my home. She worked quickly and diligently to gather market data so I was able to act quickly and had information needed to determine what was a reasonable offer to make. Tina partnered with me during the negotiation process where she demonstrated very strong negotiation skills and ultimately she was successful in securing the house I wanted to buy even though there were other interested buyers. Tina was always transparent and realistic during the purchase process encouraging me to take actions and to consider certain factors in my decision. In the end I became a much more informed buyer. When an issue arose unexpectedly from the title search that made me a bit uncomfortable, it was Tina who went beyond the call of duty (not my lawyer or the selling agent) to make dozen of phone calls to get me the information I needed that then put my mind at ease. Tina was always proactive, responsive and professional in dealing with everyone making it easy for everyone on both sides of my deal to get things done. I absolutely love Tina, not only as a professional RE agent but also as a friend simply because I trust her and her judgement and I know she always had my best interest at heart. Tina, thank you for helping me secure the house my family and I will now call home for a lifetime to come.

Chirag is a fantastic real estate broker – knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. We chose Chirag when setting out to buy our first house. He started by explaining the entire home-buying process from start to finish. Throughout the entire process he was incredibly patient with us (and really got to know what we liked and didn’t like in potential properties), but he was aggressive in terms of negotiating a good deal on our behalf—the ideal combination in a broker. We ended up finding and purchasing our first home thanks to Chirag’s skills and helpful demeanor. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home in Westchester, NY!

Tina sold our family home quickly, professionally and at a price amicable to both myself and the buyer… it’s that simple. Tina’s personality lends itself to the incredible work she did. Her housing market expertise, work ethic, work acumen, diligence and her natural ability to make sincere friends. She’s a real person, not a phony. Tina priced our home “perfectly” for the market and for my family; it was honesty – not a pie in the sky price. Selling a family home after many years can be traumatic. Tina took that stress away, and guided us on how to make the most positive presentation of the house in order to sell. I trust Tina, she has become a friend and I recommend her highly.

My husband and I came across Chirag Shah and Gateway Realty at a time in our home search when we were truly losing hope. We had been working with a realtor for over a year trying to find a home for ourselves and a baby on the way. We kept missing opportunities. We felt like we were spinning our wheels. That’s when we decided to make a change. Chirag worked quickly and diligently to show us homes in our price range and preferred areas. He got to know us on a personal level, and helped us to further define exactly what we were looking for in our next home. Three months after signing on with Gateway Realty, we signed the deed to our new home, and we couldn’t be happier. We were able to move in and set up the nursery right before our baby came into the world! Chirag also helped us to quickly lease our apartment. The process was seamless. Although moving and buying a home can be a stressful process, Chirag always made us feel like we were his only customer. We would highly recommend Chirag Shah and Gateway Realty to anyone who is searching for a new home!

I was referred to Chirag through a friend and I was not sorry. During our first conversation, it meant a lot when Chirag said, “Don’t worry. I won’t show you an area I wouldn’t have my daughter live in.” This was especially meaningful because I was new to the area and very nervous about renting my first apartment. He is incredibly personable and he truly helped me by going above and beyond my expectations. There aren’t many honest people in the world but I trusted Chirag and I’m grateful to have had his guidance and expertise throughout this process.

He has truthfully done right by me as a client and I 100% recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realestate person. He is reliable and knowledgeable, but most importantly, a genuinely caring professional.

Thanks Chirag!

We highly recommend Chirag for his result focused mindset, professionalism and deep real estate expertise. We decided to retain Chirag after we failed to rent our apartment in Westchester NY through another realtor. He came highly recommended by his past clients and we quickly realized that we made the right decision by retaining him. He improved the quality of our listing by adding professional quality pictures, videos and description that got renters interested in our property. He generated traffic of potential renters every week the property was on the marked and helped us find the right renter. He excelled the previous realtor in all areas. We felt we could depend on him and were able to complete the entire process from listing to closing while we were in California.

Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Chirag Shah. Chirag is truly the best, and he has nothing but the client’s interest in mind. He has incredible attention to detail and pointed things in potential homes that other realtors never consider.

Our home search started in June 2014, we met countless of realtors and let me tell you, Chirag Shah is the best out there. He recommended a home that was 70 thousand dollars less compared the previous homes we seen with him because he felt it was the dream home for us. Our first thought was, he is for real?? This realtor is willing to sacrifice his commission to benefit our needs; which is very hard to find nowadays. Our first few realtors we met kept giving us listings that were 80 thousand dollars or more over our budget.

We had placed an offer to our dream home and found out that there was another offer already placed. Chirag did his research and used his skill to convince the seller and their realtor why we would be a suitable candidate for our dream home. We were able to get the place under our budget and under the seller’s asking price.

Through the entire process, Chirag has been with us every step of the way. Not only did we build a professional relationship with him, we can truly say that we have gained a new friend.

She was very friendly and professional……….. She was involved in every step of the process and was in contact with everyone. During the process of the sale of the house, my mom even got sick and she was so concerned and checked on her also. The day of the exchange of the house keys she even assisted with packing the car. She is an amazing agent, this is not the first experience I had with Maribel. She even assisted with the Short Sale process of my brother in law house…………….

My fiancé and I contacted Ms. Garcia to help us find a coop in Mount Vernon. Since the first email she was extremely helpful and professional. She responded to our emails, text and call in a timely fashion. She showed us multiple options, and once we found the match she walked us through the entire process. She is honest, approachable and well informed about the market. I would definitely recommend Ms. Garcia to anyone looking for a respectful, professional and reliable agent to buy, sell or rent.

Working with Maribel was the best experience (previously dealt with an incompetent realtor). Not only was she knowledgeable…she listened. She was very patient and explained everything to me along the way. And even when things went south, she was very clear-headed and kept the process on track.
