"Before I approached Tiga to list and sell my New York apartment, I already knew he had a vast knowledge and understanding of the industry and the real estate market. He took the time to advise and guide me, updating information as needed. He worked tirelessly to organize open houses, and bring potential buyers to view the premises. I highly recommend Tiga. I knew from the beginning that he was committed, honest, informed and determined to finding the right buyer. Tiga’s professionalism inspires confidence. From listing my apartment to its sale he was consistently available, clear and knowledgeable. Tiga’s manner was thoughtful and thorough in executing all facets of this process. "

- Dyan Grey, Seller

"Tiga was very professional and seamlessly completed the sale of my coop from listing to closing. He always kept me aware of what was happening at every stage of the transaction. He is knowledgeable, efficient and got the job done in a relatively short amount of time. In addition, he always looked out for my best interests and guided me in my decisions. I recommend him highly to anyone looking for a very competent real estate professional to handle their property sale or purchase. I was extremely pleased to have him represent me."

- Tom L, Seller

"It was my first time to buy an apartment and I had no knowledge of real estate. He showed me several co-ops and negotiated with seller’s broker to lower the price. Also he helped me for mortgage, lawyer, insurance, board interview, moving and so on. Even after moving in, he answered all my questions and gave advices on troubles I had in my apartment. My purchase process went very smoothly and satisfactory. He is very trustworthy, honest and very professional. I strongly recommend him. "

- Sayuri Tateno, Buyer

"Tiga McLoyd went above and beyond in helping with the purchase of my first apartment. He is an extremely polite and patient man. Tiga provided such insight into a process I was not familiar with at all. He guided me every step of the way assuaging my fears and concerns with truth and facts. He never scoffed at any of my first time buyer questions and got back to me right away. I can’t say enough good things about him. Tiga is a man with integrity that looks you in the eye and tells you the truth."

- J. Harmon, First-Time Buyer

"I was in the uncomfortable situation to need to leave and rent my apartment for only two years for urgent family reason outside the country. In addition, it was interesting for me if the future tenant was willing to keep the furniture, so that I did not need to move away and back again for my return in two years. Within one single week Tiga found a lovely tenant matching the situation and could present her to the Board of the Building under extreme short notice. Although, I was not in town, our communication has been extremely responsive and immediate. Altogether, the deal was done under less than 3 weeks. I could meet my future tenant before packing my private items and Tiga brought me the check. Congratulation Tiga, I couldn't dream working with a better professional than you ! Thank you so much. I wish many other apartment owners will experience your professionalism, expertise, and responsiveness with your elegant and permanently friendly manners. "

- Lucette D., Landlord

"I am on the Board of my building and in fact, the President of the Board suggested that we all use Tiga for our search for fine tenants. He not only helped me but did so in such a professional and dignified manner, he was and is a pleasure to work with. I just mentioned I wanted to rent my place and he was over the next day and found a suitable and perfect tenant for my studio. I just want to add, Tiga is the best and most professionally dressed agent I have ever seen. This not may mean a lot to others but to me, he projects style, class and professionalism. I will always use Tiga."

- JoDell S., Landlord

"Tiga has always put in the time and effort to ensure a successful outcome over the years. He understands the needs of an owner/landlord and is always willing to go the extra mile. He is extremely flexible and understanding and knows how to think outside the box to close a deal."

- Cynthia S., Landlord & Seller

"I would highly recommend Tiga McLoyd. He's found me 3 beautiful apartments and I wouldn't consider working with anyone else. He listens well to what I want and screens the apartments to be sure they meet my criterion. He knows the market and sets realistic expectations. Honest and trustworthy, he worked hard to find the best possible apartment for me. "

- Cheryl L, Multiple Transactions

"We have worked with Tiga on numerous occasions on both rentals and condos and we have always been delighted. Tiga is knowledgeable about the market, consistently available to us, sensitive to matching our needs to the available inventory, an aggressive advocate for our position, a good strategist and always very pleasant to work with. We are privileged to recommend him. "

- Dan & Andrea A., Multiple Transactions

"Throughout the whole process he was extremely helpful and responsive in answering our many questions (we are first-time homeowners in Manhattan) and impressed us with his deep knowledge of everything real estate. Even though he was the seller's realtor we felt that he truly cared about our interests. We will definitely work with him again in the future. Thank you Tiga! "

- Katharina T., Buyer

"Tiga was our agent in buying our current apartment and we couldn't have been more happy with his services. He made the process less stressful by being genuine with us. He was upfront with some of the problems with the apartment which was negotiated in the price and we were happy with the outcome. It's a pleasure to see him in the neighborhood with his family and his adorable dog Broccoli. You got to love anybody who names their dog Broccoli:) "

- Julia C., Buyer

"I would highly recommend Tiga McLoyd to anyone looking for an apartment in NYC. He was knowledgeable, friendly, easy to work with and guided me step by step through the application process. I felt he was looking out for my best interests, which is rare to find. "

- Gautam S., Renter

"I can't say enough about the great experience I had working with Tiga. He helped me find a great place and made sure I asked all the right questions. He even worked with me and the landlord to negotiate a longer lease which wasn't standard out of the box 1-2 years. And he made sure to check in with me after everything was signed just to make sure I didn't have any more questions. I hope I don't have to move again anytime soon but if I do Tiga will be the first person I call. "

- Craig S., Multiple Transactions

"Hi Tiga! Just writing to let you know that today me and Daniela have successfully moved into our new apartment. It looks amazing, exactly what we have been looking for. I showed it to my friends, who helped me carry my things from Queens to the new place, and they really liked it! Good location, 3 minutes away from Subway A train, very secure building (cameras in the lobby and outside), laundry in the basement, plus, after all, it is a one-bedroom apartment with living room separate (!) from kitchen and there are 3 (!) walk-in closets. For our budget we consider it as a really good deal and we have you to thank for it! Thank you A LOT! We also realize that our situation was really difficult and unique for you to deal with. We are both new to NYC: I am Russian coming from London, applying for Green Card and waiting for a work permit, Daniela is a graduate student at Fordham coming from Florida, both have family as the main source of income and almost zero credit history. All in all, a very difficult scenario for the broker agent in relation to dealing with the landlords and finding the right apartment. Daniela and I are really grateful for your help in looking for an apartment for us, as well as for giving various tips on how to deal with different situations in New York in general. Besides, given our previous bad experience with Bond and their shady way of doing business, we really appreciated your advice on how to get the deposit back from them quickly and without having to go to court. I also understand that as the result of this bad ‘Bond experience’ we looked very anxious and not trustful while communicating with Citi Habitats and you. We apologize for that and want to say ‘Thank you!’ again for remaining calm and professional and making the whole process the least stressful for us. Now we can say for sure that we had an excellent experience of working with you and are more than pleased with the final result. Thank you very much Tiga! We will keep in touch and, like you said, will probably seek the general advice about living in New York again sometime in the future. "

"I have bought, sold and lived in homes in New York City, Westchester County and seaside Connecticut for a period spanning + 50 years. I also lived in Belgium for some years where I rented, purchased and sold properties where my family could comfortably reside. I have, therefore, extensive experience in dealing with real estate professionals. Last year, Tiga McLoyd guided my efforts to sell our NYC apartment which we occupied for 13 years. Very successful. Tiga also found just the studio I was seeking, and he directed me through the purchase process. I can say without reservation that Tiga's skills, experience and enthusiasm exceeded or equaled the services I received from all the other real estate professionals whom I have ever engaged. "

- Dudley S., Seller & Buyer

"Tiga has been the most reliable broker I worked with. The difference is in the after service. Normally after the deal is done the level of interest decreases but not with Tiga. He still follows up on anything I need. Simply great."

- Jose G., Renter

"I just wanted to write a quick email to say thank you; and to relate what a wonderful experience I had to work with you on the purchase and then the sale of my apartment on the upper west side. I knew that I had complete trust in your abilities when I asked if you could represent me on the sale of the apartment three yours after you lead on the purchase of the apartment. It was so easy to work with you because I knew I could trust your experience and customer service. Even though we coordinated on a harder selling experience because I was out of town for the transaction, the experience went incredibly smoothly thanks mostly to your expertise and great brokering experience. I could not have done it without you and feel confident that I received the best service possible for this difficult transaction. I was impressed with the way that the sale was conducted. You brought buyer and seller together easily and the process was so smooth and from my perspective easy, though I know that a lot was being performed on your end. You made it so easy and I appreciate the great way you coordinated on the sale and kept me informed the entire way even though I was in California. Every step of the way, I experienced top quality service and I felt completely comfortable with the transaction in your capable hands. I will certainly pass along a reference to anyone who needs an agent for an apartment sale or buy. It will be my pleasure. Thank you for coordinating everything with such expertise and great customer service. "

- Roger K., Seller & Buyer

"Tiga was my first landlord when I moved to Brooklyn, and still the best one I've had to date. When my wife and I started thinking about buying a home in Brooklyn, I reached out to him to help us navigate this overwhelming process because he was someone who I trusted and liked. From there he exceeded expectations. Tiga may not have been your landlord, but if you want to work with a broker who will ease your stress and care about you and your goals, Tiga is your man. First and foremost, Tiga knows his craft. On top of that, he's dedicated, responsive, and personable. He thoroughly and patiently answered every question we asked, discussed every scenario we posed, and looked into every property we were interested in. He connected us with multiple people to discuss financing and ultimately pre-approve us for a loan. He was never pushy, just helped us make sense of what we were seeing, thinking, and feeling while adding his logic for why one route might be better than another for us. His enthusiasm and knowledge made a difficult process less intimidating. We highly recommend Tiga as a broker."

- Efrem F., Tenant

"I'm writing to say what a pleasure it has been working with Tiga McLoyd of Citi Habitats during my recent move to New York. Tiga has made the process of finding an apartment far less daunting. Even before I moved to the city, he spent a lot of time speaking with me on the phone about what I was looking for, a conversation that I think later paid off when the actual search began. Throughout the process, he has been extremely responsive, and his long history in New York makes me confident that I've seen the best properties available in the area I'm interested in. I would recommend his services without reservation. "
