Assaf Tayar’s fast rise to success in NYC real estate earned him not only top-tier awards, but top-notch relationships with loyal clients thanks to his fastidious service and impeccable results. Before founding his own boutique brokerage firm, Metro-Spaces, he was a repeated top producer who ran his own group at a leading real estate company in Manhattan.
The need for something different, and a gap in the industry pushed Assaf to cover that untouched market with the opening of Metro-Spaces. His company’s mission is to go beyond closing deals and focus more on giving back. “Being in business is not just about numbers; it’s about people. We all have a personal responsibility to help others. At Metro-Spaces, our focus is on our clients and what they need. It’s on our employees, and recognizing their value. And it’s on making sure our environment and communities are protected, whether by working with green buildings or donating to charitable causes.”
This unique mission, coupled with his strong market knowledge, wealth of contacts, quality service and creative real estate solutions, has put Assaf and his team in a new and untouched league when it comes to selling residential real estate. Besides running the operations of Metro-Spaces, he also specializes in sale and rentals of properties in all neighborhoods of Manhattan above 14th Street.
Assaf is originally from Israel where he served in the Army. He next obtained his law degree, then ran a successful import/distribution company for many years. Assaf ultimately sold this business to pursue his longtime passion for real estate in the greatest city in the world – New York – serving the needs of buyers, sellers, renters, landlords as well as local and international investors.
A resident of Gramercy Park, Assaf has diverse interests outside of work that include extreme sports, riding horses, and travel worldwide.
