Ratings & Reviews

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!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Pelham, NY.

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!

Helped me rent a Multi Family home in New Rochelle, NY.

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!

Found a tenant for a Townhouse home in Hartsdale, NY.

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.

Helped me rent a Single Family home in White Plains, NY.

Nothing bad to report whatsoever, thoroughly professional, knowledgeable, level headed and diligent. The whole process, from neighborhood selection, to home selection, to contract execution to handover of keys, and then post rental follow up has been conducted efficiently and painlessly.

Bought a Cooperative home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Mamaroneck, NY.

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.

Bought a home in 2014 in North White Plains, Greenburgh, NY 10603.

I am not a person usually write comments unless either the person is so bad or so good that I have to let people know. Shah is one of the best real estate agent that I ever have. I was looking for a house for investment. Before I found him, I had another agent who made me lost golden opportunity for one of the houses and her attitude is "I will do better next time." But there are not many next time opportunities. I did not write any review for her due to her old age, but I learned my lesson that definitely you need to find someone has good review and you can get along with him or her. luckily, I found Shah through Zillow and the house I like. We found out that this house already had multiple offers and seller accepted the highest offer. under this condition, Shah made the seller accepted my offer and recommended me inspector who did inspection next day and attorney who got me the contract within one week. My house is going to close on 10/22/2014 and he is working on my rental now. Anything that you possible need, he always willing to help. I am highly recommend him if you want someone know the real estate business and efficient, he is your best choice.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Tappan, NY.

The home buying process is an absolute nightmare, but Chirag is a consummate professional whom you can absolutely rely on every step of the way. My husband and I were first time home buyers, so we had a lot to learn. He held our hand the entire way- from the first meeting when he went over the whole process, to even after we had moved in and all the papers were signed- he still was available to answer questions/help us out. I myself found the majority of homes we went to see, but Chirag was always able to secure us a viewing, almost immediately, and made himself available based off our schedule.

Hands down the most impressive part was when there was some confusion with our offer, after it had been accepted, and both parties were about to throw up their hands and walk, Chirag was able to convince BOTH sides to compromise. And we are so thankful he did. We really love our home. Thank you so so much Chirag-- and to anyone considering him- just know that he will work extremely hard to get things done in a timely and professional manner. He is so reliable, and a pleasure to work with.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Mount Vernon, NY.

After my father died, I turned to Chirag to help me sell his house in Mount Vernon. I live in Maryland and Chirag was able to take care of everything for me so I didn't have to travel back and forth to NY. He always kept me in the loop and any questions I had he always answered them promptly. Throughout the process he kept in constant contact with me and I could call him any time if I had any questions or concerns. And he was able to find the perfect buyers for the house. Chirag also has a lot of contacts in the local real estate business so he was even able to help me find a lawyer as well as a junk hauling service and locksmith. Selling a house can be stressful, so it helps to have someone who is competent and knowledgeable working for you. I would highly recommend Chiraq to anyone interested in selling or purchasing a home.
