Gabriele’s professionalism and dedication are well documented by the independent reviews offered by Park Slope Parents members and testimonials from former clients and customers.  Here is what sellers, buyers and landlords say about their experience working with Gabriele and her team: 

“Gabriele is a true professional. When we initially sat down with her, I was impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market's trends and especially impressed with her intimate knowledge of what potential buyers need and what they are looking for. If you want your apartment to sell at a competitive price, Gabriele is the agent for you. She wastes no time and gets the job done.”  - JW, seller
“In this day and age it is unique to experience good service from smart, honest and honorable people. You are one of those unique people.  Your marketing skills coupled with your market knowledge are outstanding.  And, you are definitely skilled in interpersonal relationships with prospective clients and interpersonal seller issues.  Any client would be blessed to have you as their real estate sales representative.”  - JZ, seller
“Prior to meeting you, my sister and I had listed the apartment with another brokerage in November of 2007. It was on the market for about 9 months and nothing materialized. As soon as we had listed it with you, you had given us great suggestions such as getting rid of the clutter, furniture, renovate it at a minimum cost, redo the floors and paint it. Just spending some time and a few thousand dollars made a huge difference!!! You found the buyers - a wonderful couple that fell in love with our apartment.” - SG, seller
 “Gabriele has been a pleasure to work with in every respect, being supportive, honest, helpful, attentive, and always available day and night for any questions and concerns we had. Living out of state and selling a property in Brooklyn was not an easy task and she made everything easy. Gabriele is the consummate professional.  She is extremely knowledgeable and outstanding in her ability to successfully market and sell our coop in a very difficult time of the real estate market. I cannot express enough words of praise.”  - D P, seller
"Gabriele Sewtz came highly recommended to us by our trusted attorney. And choosing to work with her was the best decision we could have made when selling our apartment and purchasing a new one. Gabriele maintains a keen understanding of the current real estate climate. She works tirelessly to maintain a high standard of personal professionalism and accountability. It is clear she is passionate about her work, and that she wants for her clients to be completely satisfied. And we are."  - AG and JG, seller and buyer
“At the start of this process, I couldn't have imagined how complicated and stressful it would be, and the effort would have failed long ago if you weren't working on my behalf.  The sale has required an amazing amount of strategy and ground-work, neither of which I feel many other agents would have been prepared for or willing to take on.  To say that you're on the ball is an understatement. I hated the idea of having to pay a broker's fee when I first decided to sell, but now think that that'll be some of the best money I'll ever spend.” - VF, seller and buyer
“Through the sale of several properties in New York City, Gabriele Sewtz is definitely the most focused and driven agent we have come in contact with.  Her assessment of our circumstances - we needed to relocate for a new job - coupled with her willingness to be as aggressive in price as our market would support, made her the perfect fit for our sale.  From our initial meeting to the final sale, Gabriele spelled out each step of the process, was always considerate of our neighbors, transparent in her dealings with prospective buyers and their agents, and was very adept at navigating the more complex currents of our employer's company sponsored relocation package.”  - SF and DF, seller
“Gabriele is very professional and exceeded my expectations regarding her knowledge and attention to detail.” - AF, seller  
“Gabriele is knowledgeable, sympathetic, and tireless. More than just a real estate agent, she was our advocate, our teacher, and, when necessary, our psychiatrist. We can't imagine going through the process of buying our first home with anyone else by our side and we recommend her without reservation.” - MG and JA, seller and buyer  
“As newbies to buying, especially in a market as daunting as New York real estate, it was reassuring to have Gabriele on our team. Gabriele is the perfect broker.  She was our secret weapon in finding and securing the apartment of our dreams.  She was our voice of reason and our faithful advisor.  She cared not only that the sale was made but also that we were happy throughout the entire process. She’s the best.” - C B and JK, buyer
“Plain and simple, our purchase would not have gone through without Gabriele. She has an incredible grasp of the market. After listening to our experience seeing many other properties with other brokers, Gabriele needed to show us only one house to match us with the place we live in today. We bought our brownstone in the middle of the financial crisis, when mortgage and sale requirements were changing daily. Gabriele navigated the entire process with the grace of a prima ballerina and the doggedness of a pit bull on a pant leg. She had us at ease every step of the way, despite numerous near-implosions of the deal. I never, ever want to buy or sell real estate without her again.” - JA, buyer and seller
“To say that Gabriele knows what she is doing would be an understatement!  She is honest and forthcoming with her opinions, and I always felt like I could trust what she was saying.  She was sensitive to my needs, really listening and picking up on what was important to me (sometimes before I realized it myself!), so that I could narrow my focus to appropriate options in the neighborhoods I was considering.  I felt like she was my advocate right from the beginning, all the way to the closing - and beyond.” - LCV, buyer
“When we found our dream apartment, Gabriele guided us through a very stressful bidding war and even though we were caught up in wanting the apartment, guided us to keep within our budget. We were first time home buyers, and Gabriele was excellent at preparing our coop package, and working with attorneys, inspectors, etc to make sure the whole process from offer to contract to closing went smoothly. Even though negotiations with the seller and her representatives were quite acrimonious, Gabriele took control of the situation and turned it to our advantage.” - HN, buyer  
“Being new to the real estate market we needed somebody we could trust – we were lucky to have Gabriele since she’s extremely responsible, honest and efficient. She got things done for us we thought could not be done. Still the process of buying an apartment should not hinge on luck – we needed a professional who would go an extra mile and Gabriele did that for us.” - EF, buyer  
“We can enthusiastically recommend Gabriele Sewtz as a highly competent, professional, empathetic real estate agent.  Not only did she handle the marketing and sale of a relative's apartment, for which we were the executors, she was sensitive to the enormous clean out we were responsible for and went above the call of duty to give us guidance and recommend related services we needed.  She also has the patience of a saint and a positive, nothing-is-a problem attitude. I could go on but she is one of those rare individuals who focuses on the desired end results and makes it her business to reach it....if you're considering any other real estate agent - don't! You're lucky you found Gabriele.” - JD, seller  

"I worked with Sarah Kruse this past winter to find a 1 br/studio apartment in Manhattan. Sarah was an outstanding partner from start to finish. She was able to walk me through all decisions from whether to rent or buy at my price range, to how to approach the offering etc. She was responsive, thoughtful and wonderful to work with. I would fully recommend her to anyone looking to make a real estate decision." - LM
"I always felt that Sarah "had my back" and I never felt any pressure to move forward on something that I wasn't comfortable with, like I had with other agents I had spoken to. I am lucky to say that Sarah has remained in my life as a friend and I look forward to working with her again when I look to buy a place in the coming year." - NR
"At a time when the market is extremely competitive, Sarah helped us in negotiating and securing both of the properties we wanted. She was extremely professional, consistently punctual, and overall a pleasure to work with". -K&R L
"I had another broker show me several units prior to you and a few brokers show me listings via phone and email, and all of them caused me feelings of despair, whereas your guidance gave me hope – a priceless feeling in New York apartment searches. The glaring difference between you and other brokers was the number of intelligent questions you asked both at the beginning of the process and throughout the process. And then you actually understood my answers and took them into account in listings you showed me so that my time was well-spent instead of wasted. I will surely make referrals to you in the future." - DN
"Sarah was personable, professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with! She listened to the things which were most important in my search and didn't waste any time--she took me to view apartments which met and exceeded my needs/expectations. I thought that looking for apartments was going to be exhausting, but her expertise and great personality actually made it fun! I would recommend entrusting Sarah with finding you the perfect apartment!"  - JR

“Above and beyond being polished and poised, she is diligent, thorough, intelligent and professional.”
