Gill Chowdhury

We have worked with Gill Chowdhury for a number of years, in a number of capacities – as our agent when we were looking at rental properties, and also as our agent when we were seeking to buy (and subsequently find a renter for) property in Manhattan.

Gill distinguishes himself from other agents in many ways. He is diligent, patient, very knowledgeable, resourceful – and a good listener. We had so very many parameters in each of our assignments for Gill, and he took the time to absorb each one of them and respond intelligently and quickly with very appropriate properties. We never found it necessary to expand our search to other agents.

His work ethic is such a refreshing change from so many agents we’ve worked with in the past – from agents who simply tried to sell us their inventory, to agents who gave us a handful of their business cards and disappeared after telling us to leave them at properties we’d identified on our own! Gill will show you what YOU want to buy – not what he has to sell. This is a rare and elusive trait amongst brokers, and one that we strongly appreciated.

Gill always makes himself available, and is very responsive. He gives honest assessments on properties, and educates his buyers on pros and cons. This was especially important to our searches, as overseas investors who deeply appreciated the insights that Gill provided for the US market, so we could make informed and educated decisions.

Gill has an engaging personality and strong professionalism … he is far and away our broker of choice. We have recommended him – without reservation – to all our friends looking to buy or rent in Manhattan and its Boroughs.

To whom it may concern:I am delighted to recommend Gill Chowdhury of Douglas Elliman New York.

Gill has rendered his service as real estate salesperson to my family for 3 years already. He originally helped my son rent a nice apartment and last year extended his sales expertise in arranging for us a successful purchase of a remarkable one-bedroom apartment in midtown Manhattan.

It is rare to find a professional who has the breadth of knowledge required for a licensed real estate agent. Gill is proficient, dependable, hard-working, well-organized and always reachable. We have referred him to some of our friends from Thailand and they are all impressed with his outstanding services.

It is my pleasure to recommend him to you without reservations.

I recently went through the process of finding my first apartment in New York City. Given my experience, I thought it necessary to inform you of the tremendous talen and professionalism of one of your brokers, Gill Chowdhury.

Despite viewing apartments for only several days, Mr. Chowdhury scheduled no fewer than eleven visist in three different neighborhoods so that I could get a good feel of the different options available. His dedication to doing a thorough job was apparent not only in his tenacity ot find listings that suited my particular needs, but also in his wealth of knowledge regarding neighborhood quality and amenities, building management companies, as well as every step of the leasing process. Gill’s attention to detail in his job is unparalleled.

While looking for a new place to live has always been stressful and exhausting for me, Mr. Chowdhury made the process as close to enjoyable as possible, by making me feel that I knew exactly what I was getting and had an able advocate on my side. Mr. Chowdhury’s professionalism and cando are a stark contrast from what one comes to expect when looking for a new place to live.

I certainly know whom to contact for my next apartment.

I had an amazing experience with Gill. Even being in a whole other state he was able to help me find the apartment I’ve always wanted. He was always easy to reach and responded quickly. He really did go above and beyond in finding a new place for me. Moving is always hard and stressful so it was great to know I had someone like him at my back to make things a little easier.

I am writing on behalf of Gill Chowdhury and would like to relay the excellent experience I had working with him. Having worked with several agents on both coasts over the last several years, I can state without doubt that Gill is among the best in the industry.

From the beginning, Gill has been attentive and thorough. I began my apartment search with a considerable amount of apprehension and once I began working with Gill all of my stress and worries vanished immediately. He worked tirelessly for me, listen attentively to my needs, and offered a wealth of valuable insight and knowledge that I have not found else where – I was especially impressed when he solved a debate I was having with a roommate over the translation of Candide. In the week I spent working with Gill, I also pleasantly found his professional acumen to be matched only by his friendly demeanor and reassuring manner.

In my experience, Gills knowledge and dedication is unmatched and I recommend him to anyone looking for Manhattan real estate – and I too look forward to working with him again.

To whomever it regards,

Gill is very professional and knowledgeable in what he is doing. He always responds to my email right away with detailed explanations and answers. I am new to the city and I not only thank him for finding me an awesome apartment, but also take the extra step to help me with tips and guides to living in the city. He is very friendly, but at the same time professional. Everything went smoothly as planned despite the weather and the vortex, which I can give Gill a lot of credit to. I found the perfect apartment and signed the lease within 3 days thanks to Gill. I never knew leasing an apartment could be this easy, and I would absolutely recommend Gill to anybody trying to get a place in the city. Sincerely,

Tozabit Phadetpai
