Gus is as passionate about property as he is about his clients. He is also a popular trainer who has passed his knowledge on to a whole new generation of real estate professionals through his enlightening training seminars.
A New York resident since 1979, Gus has seen over 10,000 NY apartments since starting in the real estate business. “My obsession is seeing property and matching clients to their perfect place. I am too busy to waste my time or yours, so I do all the work before you even call me. When I began in real estate, I made a commitment to see at least 10 properties a day, and I have. With a previous life as a stand-up comic, actor, director, serious foodie and movie buff, the tour you get is sure to include a couple of laughs and recommendations you won’t get even from Mr. Zagat himself.”
