Professional Expertise

With 14 years of experience in commercial real estate, Tatiana joined Savills Studley in 2003 to pursue tenant representation assignments.

Prior to Savills Studley, Tatiana worked at Helmsley-Spear, Inc. and Grubb & Ellis as a leasing agent for 205/215 Lexington Avenue, 59 John Street, 224 Fifth Avenue, 141 West 36th Street and 118 East 28th Street.  While at 205/215 Lexington Avenue, Tatiana aggressively canvassed and marketed the property, which resulted in her reducing its vacancy from 60% to less than 15% within a year plagued by a down market.  While at 118 East 28th Street, Tatiana more than doubled the rent roll in one year by completing nearly 40 transactions.

Before real estate, Tatiana had an outstanding career in education in her birthplace Moscow. She held a prestigious appointment as an English professor at the Moscow State University of International Relations.  While in Russia, she also worked as a business reporter and editor for Russian cable television.
