Combining a strong work ethic with a unique ability to think outside the box, Daniel Hayblum is an established veteran of the real estate industry whose knowledge of the marketplace and ability to understand clients’ goals is unsurpassed. Known for his determination and commitment to top-notch customer service, Daniel prides himself on delivering the best possible results in every transaction.
Daniel and his brother Sabian are part of the "Afan and the Hayblum Brothers" at Citi Habitats. Their distinct skill sets complement each other well, offering clients the full package of multiple experienced agents working tirelessly to meet their needs. Real estate was embedded in Daniel and Sabian from a young age (their father was a prominent real estate developer in Australia) and the boys grew up exploring projects; one of Daniel’s first words was even “demolition.” (These days he prefers to watch new developments rise up rather than fall.)
As an agent, Daniel is well regarded for his listening skills and his ability to hear clients’ needs and help them identify exactly what they are looking for. He finds the chance to meet new people and guide them through the real estate process to be a hugely rewarding experience, and in many cases has become close friends with clients. Daniel’s people skills were honed as he worked with sick and elderly clients at Life Alert while still in school; he currently serves as a volunteer with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America.
Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Daniel attended Stuyvesant High School and studied Business Administration at Baruch College in Manhattan. A resident of Murray Hill, he has closed deals all over Manhattan and possesses a broad knowledge base of the luxury real estate landscape throughout the city. He is also a prolific investor in online real estate—a unique tool he uses to market properties in a way that sets him apart from other brokers
