Tyler is a 5 star real estate agent, whose experience as a trusted professional across multiple industries shows at every turn. He really listened from the start to our needs and wants in our new home, and always came up with good suggestions and played devils advocate as necessary. Tyler always showed up, on time, with a smile on his face - and lord knows there were LOTS of showings - he had a lot of patience and his follow-up rate on any question we had was literally 100%. He was a good sport when we pivoted with our wish list towards the end of the process, and we ended up purchasing a home we love in a wonderful building.
We would recommend Tyler to anyone looking to buy in NYC - sharp, turned advisor with a good idea for details (and problems), an honest partner and overall just a nice person who was a pleasure to work with. If you are thinking about it, hire him! You won’t be disappointed." - Laurie M. and Jeff C., Coop BUYER, Lenox Hill, Upper East Side
"Tyler was the consummate real estate agent for us. He was incredibly reliable, responsive and transparent all the while Selling our apartment when we were residing out of the city. He was nimble, efficient and very professional throughout the process. He took quick action to sell the apartment fast, but listened to our needs and was extremely organized, knowledgeable and dependable. I was super impressed how he made us feel like a priority throughout and highly recommend him. I would use him in a heartbeat again and appreciate his tenacity, experience and reliability. Thank you, Tyler!!!" - Hillary N., Condo SELLER, Lenox Hill, Upper East Side
"Tyler is the ideal broker to work with. He is honest, reliable, communicates well, and is extremely knowledgeable about everything real estate-related. He guided me through the Selling preparation and the showing process, and then during the finalizing of the details of the sale. He was flexible and creative, and open to changing course when needed, but held the line when that was appropriate. I felt supported by him throughout, and could not have asked for a more caring, dependable person to work with. I recommend Tyler with no reservations." - Jane M., Coop SELLER Upper East Side
"We recently completed the sale and purchase of a co-op and condo in Manhattan. Tyler is one of those rare people who truly cares about the people who work with him. He's highly professional, listens intently, and pays close attention to detail, and really works hard on his clients' behalf. Importantly, Tyler really has an excellent grasp of the market and provides superb guidance in helping navigate what can be a daunting process including pricing, marketing, staging, ongoing communications, advocacy and shrewd negotiations. As a result, we had multiple offers (including two all cash) and locked in our buyer in three days following the open house. We couldn't have been more pleased with working with Tyler. He's professional, attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with. In addition, we also purchased a condo and Tyler helped orchestrate the deals so that the sale and purchase were only two weeks apart. We couldn't be more pleased to work with Tyler and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in Manhattan. You'll be well served." - Jim S., Co-op SELLER, Tudor City Murray Hill and Condo BUYER, Gramercy Park
"I am a first time buyer and worked with Tyler in helping me find my new home. He helped me through all the steps and details, and took the time to answer all my questions thoroughly.
He is very responsive, respectful, and knowledgeable, and his number one priority was to ensure that I found a place I could call home. I am thankful for all of his help through the NYC Co-op buying journey, and his attention to detail and patience working with me as a first time buyer (and seamlessly worked through any complications along the way). He was always honest and prioritized my best interests throughout the process.
I strongly recommend Tyler to any prospective buyer - you'll be in great hands with a trusted partner!" - Anupam K., Coop BUYER, Lenox Hill, Upper East Side
"Tyler helped us find and purchase a pied-a-terre for my parents on the Upper West Side. They were purchasing the apartment remotely, with Tyler and I doing the groundwork. He was an absolute pleasure to work with - he was always responsive, available, and willing to see as many apartments as we needed, offering valuable insight about each property. We never felt pressured to look at properties beyond our price range nor did we have to sacrifice the amenities that were important to us. Tyler is a kind, patient and genuine person who puts us at ease while helping us navigate the process. We would recommend Tyler to our friends and anyone looking to find a place to call home in the NYC area." - Susan, Ken, and Sarah D., Coop BUYER, Upper West Side
“Canadians buying in Manhattan look no further! Tyler made the near-impossible happen for us; a Canadian family buying a coop in Manhattan. Tyler guided us through all the hoops and hurdles with grace, patience and imperceptible persistence. He patiently explained to us the rules and regulations (perhaps more than once!), and while we were ready to give up on this purchase several times, Tyler persevered and made it happen. From beginning (many showings and one rescinded condo application) to end (we are the proud owners of a beautiful 2-bedroom coop in a historic building in Greenwich Village), Tyler was along for the ride. He checked in with us every day (we live in Toronto), and coordinated countless calls between the real estate agents, lawyers, managing agents, etc. Tyler Schaeffer should be your real estate agent in Manhattan, Canadian or not!” - Karima and Alam P., Coop BUYER, Greenwich Village
"Finally, I bought my first apartment in NYC during the pandemic. Thanks to Tyler, he made sure everything went smoothly. There were so many unforeseen issues but he helped me get through them. Tyler is really professional and very attentive. He is always available if you have questions or need some suggestions. I’m really happy that Tyler was my realtor!"
- Nuttapoom Y. and Juliano O., Coop BUYER, Upper West Side
"Thank you Tyler for a completely seamless experience in purchasing a dream-come-true residence in a historic building in Manhattan!!! From our first meeting it was apparent you viewed your role as helping "US" find the perfect place. The experience was a thoughtful education on your part to the possibilities of what was best for our needs. From day one we felt completely confident in your abilities in absolutely every aspect of the process. You more than delivered and as an added, unanticipated bonus made it enjoyable, totally uncomplicated and lots of fun. Thank you, thank you!!!" - Amy and Fabio F., Coop BUYER, Lenox Hill, Upper East Side
"If ever there is a real estate broker extraordinaire it is Tyler. It was a true understanding of what we wanted in terms of size, location and price so we were all able to work together effortlessly, to find exactly what we had in mind. He was there every step of the way from bidding to signing and closing. He made the process as easy as possible and we will applaud his patience and perseverance always. He is an asset to anyone looking to buy or sell and our association will continue for a long time to come." - Louise H., Coop BUYER, Upper West Side
"We worked with Tyler to find us a new place to live in NYC—after owning several houses in the NJ suburbs for almost 30 years. It was a challenge both for us and for —trying to find something that would work for us, for our daughter graduating from college, and for our two dogs, after living in houses more than twice the size, with large yards, driveways, garages, pools, etc. From the beginning, Tyler explained in detail what we should expect and be prepared for, and patiently walked us through all the process steps and myriad options. He was also extremely patient and supportive going with us to the multiple neighborhoods, buildings and apartments we thought we wanted—and going back to several places 3 and 4 times. Throughout the process, he was always timely in his response and follow-up on issues as they arose. When we finally made a decision, he negotiated vigorously on our behalf—both on the price and the longer lease we wanted (which the landlord didn’t want to give). Even after we signed the lease, he pushed the landlord once again to let us delay our move-in by a month because of the coronavirus issues—without any penalties or additional cost to us. We would highly recommend Tyler if you are looking for real estate anywhere in the New York area." - Peggy and Chris F., Condo RENTER, One Manhattan Square, Lower East Side
"Tyler provided professional, personalized service to guide me through both the sale of my co-op apartment and the purchase of a new development/condo. He was a wealth of valuable knowledge and showed great patience in educating and preparing me for the complexities of navigating the NYC real estate market. Every step of the way, Tyler provided superior service that allowed me to trust him and make informed decisions. In the sale of my co-op, his market expertise allowed us to set a realistic and competitive sales price, which was critical to our success. Tyler was able to get early looks at the apartment, brought us multiple all-cash buyers, and closed a deal within three days of our open house.
Tyler was equally dedicated to my hunt for the perfect new home. Always accommodating to my schedule and attentive to my needs, Tyler was devoted to my search. He was incredibly helpful in curating and selecting showings that cut through the clutter of NYC’s overwhelming inventory. His work ethic and responsiveness made our meetings efficient and productive. Tyler helped us close the deal on a beautiful condo, negotiate favorable terms, and was there to assist us until we had the keys in our hands.
Tyler was also a valuable resource in recommending contractors, movers, and legal needs related to my purchase. I was proud to have Tyler represent me
and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to other buyers/sellers." - Lindsay S., Coop SELLER Tudor City Murray Hill and Condo BUYER, Gramercy Park
"Tyler is an exceptional real estate broker and a wonderful person. My wife and I first met Tyler at a showing of an apartment where he represented the seller. Although we decided to pass on that apartment, we both were impressed by his professionalism, knowledge, and personality. We had worked with other brokers over the course of a year, but none had won our trust.
As we moved forward with Tyler, we were not the easiest of clients. Tyler introduced us to many dozens of prospects and guided us with his experience, patience and good nature. As we considered options, our appreciation for him grew. We noticed the impressive way in which he interacted with other brokers and the respect they accorded him by virtue of his flawless professionalism and charm. When we found the one--an UES white glove co-op-- he was there every step of the way, from the viewing to offer and acceptance, to the meticulous preparation of the board package.
And his assistance didn't stop at closing. Even post-closing, he reached out to make sure everything was ok, and when an issue arose with the mover in the middle of the move, he jumped in and, through the force of his agency and skills of his personality, successfully addressed the problem. was pro-active without being pushy. He appreciated the stress we were under with other aspects of life and business, and he did as much as possible to alleviate that stress. Tyler started out as our broker and became our friend. You can do no better than having Tyler on your side." - Jackie and John D., Coop BUYER, Lenox Hill, Upper East Side
"We recently completed the purchase of a condominium in Manhattan with the expert assistance of Tyler. His professional knowledge of the Real Estate market is only surpassed by his engaging and warmth while providing skilled guidance through the intricacies of the market.
He is patient and meticulous in the journey from initial introduction, to developing a clear understanding of our needs to inform the relevant search to identify the perfect property in the desired time-frame. Tyler quietly inspired our confidence in his ability to locate the right condo on our behalf and provided the highest level of support from viewing to pricing, negotiating, mediating, signing and closing the deal." - Maureen, Jerry and Stuart H., Condo BUYER, Murray Hill
"I am so thankful to have worked with Tyler in finding my ideal apartment. I started my search with a general idea in mind and Tyler helped me to refine my ideas and guided me through every step of the process. He was there to listen to my feedback and once the right apartment came along he was there to work through the contracting and closing process. I expected apartment hunting to be a daunting task but, he made it joyful, and I'm very thankful that I worked with Tyler." - Andrew H., Coop BUYER, Upper West Side
"Tyler has been extremely courteous and patient in the process of acquiring an investment property and subsequently renting it out.

We will certainly continue working with him." - Liliya and Ivan P., Condo BUYER Investor, Hell's Kitchen
"I had an amazing, seamless experience working with you. You took the time to get to know me and listened to my needs requirements in an apartment making the search process very easy. I really appreciate your responsiveness and accountability working together to schedule viewings, discuss pros/cons and execute the lease signing process. I am very happy with my new home and will definitely work with you next time." - Ashley C., RENTER, East Village
"I want to thank you for the high degree of professionalism with which you handled our subletting the condo apt. at the Parc Vendome. Several things really impressed me: you were open to any questions that I had and at all times you were honest, you were easy to get along with, you followed-up quickly with the condo and the landlord, and stayed on top of the process and any issue so that there were no delays." - Milena, Emmy and Martin A., Condo RENTER, Midtown West
"Tyler is a knowledgeable, reliable and thorough real estate broker. He capably guided me through the process of renting my condo and was with me every step of the way. He is attentive to detail and assiduous in his client communications. When issues arose with my rental, Tyler worked diligently and ethically to rectify them. He is a trusted business partner and a pleasure to work with." - Miriam K., Condo RENTER, Upper West Side
"Tyler graciously helped us find our first NYC home as we planned our move from Washington, DC. As two first-time residents, we are especially grateful for his expertise and his outstanding, personalized service throughout this entire process. Tyler went above and beyond to make sure that we didn't just find the perfect apartment in the right location, but that we found somewhere that truly felt like home to us in a brand-new city.
He was always so attentive, and patient and he made himself available at all times — not just to see the many apartments with us, but also to talk through our options and weigh the pros/cons of each in-person and over the phone. He understood exactly what we were looking for in our apartment and our neighborhood, often proactively equipping us with information that only an expert on NY would know — like the area's history, the best places to eat/shop, and even what our commute to work would look like.
This all gave us a real insight into what our life would actually be like living in our new home (vs. just visiting for a short period of time). Tyler was there every step of the way — from finding the apartment to negotiating the price to preparing and submitting our application with us. He even sent a follow-up note to congratulate us on our 6-month anniversary!
He made an often stressful, confusing process feel absolutely seamless, fun, and exciting. And now, we have not just a home, but our dream home. We look forward to continuing to work with Tyler in the future because of his excellent service." - Dana C. and Dylan H., RENTER, Soho
"From the onset, Tyler made it a priority to get to know us as clients prior to showing us any listings. Tyler made us feel that our new home should meet all of our criteria, and that we would not have to adjust our expectations. He was careful to adhere to our budgetary needs and was readily available to answer any questions we had.
He reminded us throughout the process that we were looking for a home for ourselves, and he showed personal investment in our happiness. Having had previous experiences working with impersonal brokers, his genuine nature helped us feel confident and comfortable when deciding on our new home.
We highly recommend Tyler to anyone seeking help in renting apartments in the hectic Manhattan real estate environment." - Amanda C. and Aaron K., RENTER, Upper East Side
