Tiffany Ong

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker

Tiffany, who was born and raised in New York City, brings an invaluable combination of veteran experience, exceptional service, and a deep knowledge of NYC to her role as one of one of the leading real estate agents in the city. After 18 years of specializing in residential sales, Tiffany’s ability to efficiently guide her clients through a given transaction is not only second nature, it is a process she enjoys as much now as she did on her very first day. She has an industry-wide reputation as a focused, energetic broker who consistently exceeds her clients’ expectations—and who makes her own matcha latte every morning. Plus, as the owner of investment properties and as a board member of Zeckendorf Towers (a mixed-use 650-unit condominium), she brings her clients a unique point of view, regularly offering them firsthand insights into what it’s like to be a homeowner and investor in Manhattan.  Deeply rooted in the Union Square community, Tiffany has seen the neighborhood grow into the vibrant community it is today and serves as a Board of Director of Union Square Partnership to help maintain and improve Union Square for future generations to enjoy.

Her passion for her work and her natural way with people are reflected by her large number of repeat and referral-based clientele—she lives for the chemistry and connection that happens between a well-matched broker and client.

Prior to her time in real estate, Tiffany enjoyed a successful career in finance that continues to benefit her current real estate clients. After graduating from Baruch College with a degree in International Marketing, Tiffany spent five years working in the Investment Banking Division at Goldman Sachs and held various roles at Citigroup. If she hadn’t gone into real estate she may have stayed in finance—or become a private investigator. Problem solving, deduction, and observing human behavior are all skills she puts to use every day as an agent.

Tiffany lives in Union Square with her young son, and loves the area not only for its convenience to transportation, shopping, and the park, but also because of the amazing community she has seen blossom over the past 20+ years. They stay busy by visiting legendary NYC attractions, enjoying the food scene and traveling. She also works hard to instill in him her core belief about New York City: that if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.

"I had a “guardian angel”guiding me through the mind fields of New York real estate. Tiffany truly looked after my best , long-term interests every step of the way...Tiffany goes above and beyond the standard of care...Now,I wouldn’t even consider selling my apartment, let alone buying a new one, without Tiffany by my side.  She works from the heart; she actually cares.  She’s committed to the long-term relationship far more than the near-term transaction.  The perspective she brings, that of a native  New Yorker and real estate owner herself, plus her energy and spirit ,are all things I came to value...”

"As a first time home buyer, Tiffany was an absolute godsend. She is a native New Yorker, and was totally able to help me navigate the complicated real estate market.  She put me on to properties that I had no idea were in my budget and was able to walk me through the process with her knowledge of the market based on her many years of experience: co-op's vs. condos, new vs. renovated, tax abatements, maintenance fees, etc. and helped me put together a crack team of lenders, lawyers, and inspectors.  She really was able to put a personalized touch compiling a list of places and neighborhoods, that would suit my personality and considerations I didn't even know I could have. It's important for you to see what you don't want as much as what you do. What's important to you?  What would be your ideal?  What are your deal breakers?   Can you renovate or do you need a home that is finished as is. I ended up with a dream apartment that exceeded my expectations."

“Tiffany was an absolute pleasure to work with. I not only looked to her as a knowledgeable real estate broker, but a good friend who took a genuine interest in helping me find the right place. Being completely new to the real estate industry, I needed to work with someone who would be able to teach me the ins and outs. Tiffany’s patient and clearway of explaining everything to me was a welcome relief to a sometimes stressful time. I always felt open to calling Tiffany with any questions, and her thorough follow-ups to my inquiries made me feel like I had her personal attention all the time. I have already recommended Tiffany to 2 of my friends."
