"I look at each new client or transaction with a fresh perspective, using knowledge from previous deals and finding new insights and tools to make the next deal smoother."
As a Manhattan broker over the past three decades, Tanner has been an instrumental part of moving real estate from Listing to Sold in an ever-changing market. He launched his career with a bang: working with ambitious early developers in the Far West Village, selling out two new buildings in the days before the Hudson River Park existed and achieved its celebrity status. Convincing buyers to take a chance on a neighborhood he had long called home proved profitable for those early pioneers; many have become friends and repeat clients over the years.
He has since moved on to other developments in other neighborhoods. Thanks to his many referrals, Tanner has been involved in the sale and resale of co-ops, condos, lofts and townhouses all over Manhattan.
His passion for his work comes from his love of architecture and design combined with a passion for people and their life stories. Buying or selling a home is about closing one chapter of your life and beginning what is hopefully an exciting new one. Being a part of this transaction is a privilege Tanner takes seriously, and it shows in his work - though he does always try to do it with a smile and a laugh to make the whole process a bit more fun.
Being a good, patient listener not only attracts lifelong clients; it's something his colleagues know, respect and admire about him. He's earned a reputation as an outstanding broker to work with on transactions, so fellow brokers are eager to accept deals with him - a major advantage when a listing has multiple offers.
What does this mean for his clients? Faster transactions, outstanding negotiations and a seamless experience from start to finish. Even in an occasionally ruthless business environment, being a nice guy is something Tanner has proven can be an advantage."
"If I were to hire a broker for myself, I would look for honesty, dedication and a sense of humor."
