Thomas Szoeke takes pride in the fact that he is more of a real estate "advisor" than an agent and his clients appreciate that. With a most dedicated work ethic he excels by guiding people instead of just "selling." Keeping abreast of the market at all times and understanding the current climate and options, allows him to provide his clients with the best of service. "By truly listening to each client, defining their wants and needs and monitoring the market to keep them aware of the best opportunities in the marketplace, the right fit will ultimately present itself."
Born in Budapest, Hungary and raised in Vienna, Austria, Thomas is fluent in English, German and Hungarian. He understands a diversity of cultures and their needs when it comes to relocating. Thomas comes from a family who has been involved in real estate for over 20 years. He became a licensed broker in Europe in 2012 where he was a managing partner in a brokerage specializing in luxury rentals and sales. This European venture was most successful as he became known as the "residential resource" to many expatriates, diplomats and international investors in addition to the general community. Having now joined forces with Lorett Vigon and The VIGON TEAM at Citi Habitats, Thomas will serve as the international community's "NYC Resource" for those wishing to rent and purchase real estate here in New York. A specialist in rentals and sales as well as investment properties, he is the team's International Advisor servicing clients who, like he did, seek to relocate or invest in New York from overseas. Of course, his heart is still in Europe but after falling in love with our town, he made the decision to call NYC his home.
Thomas attended Vienna University of Economics and Business and holds a Master of Social and Economic Science degree. Prior to venturing into real estate in NY he held positions in retail and business development as a manager for multinational corporations and start-ups. His prior roles were Director of Field Salesforce for the world leader in cosmetics, and various management positions in the fashion retail industry. Extremely organized, he has strong analytical, leadership and communication skills to meet his clients' needs. Hands-on and service-oriented with a flexible approach, Thomas will ensure that your real estate experience with him is efficient and as smooth and seamless as possible.
When he's not closing deals, his main interests include travel, fashion, design, and he enjoys basketball and wakeboarding as well as other sports.
