Taavo was born in Manhattan and lived on the Upper West Side until the age of 13 when his family moved to Europe. After moving back to the States, he briefly lived in Utah and more recently in Savannah, GA. Taavo has made Manhattan his home and after living around the world, believes New York is the most interesting and exciting city in the world. In his free time, Taavo is often playing tennis (still his favorite thing to do) and enjoys fishing, playing poker, drinking fine wine, and watching sports. His focus is on residential rentals and sales in Manhattan.
