Tyson is a principal partner of The Saghir Lewis Team, named Top Producing Team in Brooklyn and Top Team in Park Slope in 2018. Tyson has been mentioned and quoted in various publications including the New York Times, relating to his successful representation of both buyers and sellers. While his business focuses on Brooklyn, Tyson is also licensed in Connecticut and frequently helps clients make the transition between New York and Fairfield County.

Tyson holds a degree from the University of Vermont where he studied Anthropology and English. He worked as a litigation paralegal, first at the corporate law firm of Dewey Ballantine LLP and later at Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett LLP, instrumental to a number of complex international cases, and is an active musician, having performed with his own group and a number of notable artists. As an Associate Broker with Halstead, Tyson continues to build his business through enthusiastic referrals from delighted clients.

“When we first listed our Park Slope apartment with agent from another well-known firm, we assumed the market was so hot the apartment would pretty much sell itself, and we did not choose our agent carefully. Three months later, with no offers, we re-listed with Tyson Lewis. The experience was night-and-day. Tyson listed the apartment on Monday, had an over ask offer on Thursday and two back-up offers on Sunday. But that’s only the middle of the story. Even though we received an offer right away, Tyson worked tirelessly BEFORE we listed. He didn't rely on a "hot" market - he created the market. After we accepted the offer, Tyson did not let up. He made sure every loose-end was secure. We were a corporate relocation, which meant mountains of red tape, frustrating rules and paperwork. Tyson navigated the process quickly and professionally. We are so thankful for all his hard work.” - Stacey & Dan P. (sellers) 2016
“Tyson was referred to me by a trusted friend and he did not disappoint! He was with me every step of the way as I navigated my first ever home purchase in Brooklyn. I'm so thankful I had him as my guide and I wouldn't hesitate to refer him to anyone I know looking for their first or tenth home.” - Alison K. (buyer) 2016
“Tyson Lewis sold us our Ditmas Park condo in 2010. When it came time to resell in August of 2015, we naturally contacted him to discuss our options. After one meeting with Tyson, we knew we had found our broker. He provided a clear and comprehensive analysis of market conditions, advised us on how to best prepare our apartment for sale, and designed a sales strategy that he believed would result in getting the best price and terms for our most important asset. We never imagined that we would receive ten offers in the first week on the market. Tyson negotiated a very intense competitive bidding situation with composure and confidence. Our condo ultimately sold for $162,000 over our asking price, exceeding our wildest expectations and setting a new record for the neighborhood. We enthusiastically recommend Tyson Lewis to any prospective seller!” - Gaylord & John Y. (sellers) 2015
“Tyson Lewis worked tirelessly, patiently and with sensitivity to help us find a new home, and then to sell our co-op from September 2014 through August 2015. Initially, we wanted to stay in Brooklyn, in a quieter and less expensive area. He created a search that was unique to our needs, and helped us explore pockets of Brooklyn with which we were unfamiliar. When we expanded our search to Westchester, Tyson graciously guided us into the hands of his Halstead’s relocation experts, and followed up to be sure we were happy. After our search proved fruitful, Tyson sprang into action, understanding the need to sell our Park Slope co-op prior to closing on our new home. One painless open house later he found our buyer. Any Brooklyn resident, even those just beginning to dream of relocating would do well to seek out Tyson Lewis in his Park Slope office!” - Robin L. & Jon F. (sellers & buyers) 2015
“When our mother died, we were seven grown children with a six bedroom Victorian house to sell in Brooklyn. After interviewing several real estate agents, we met with Tyson Lewis and knew he was the right person to sell our mother's house. We first met Tyson on a Saturday. By Monday he had beautiful photographs taken of the house, and by Wednesday the property had a website. A week later, we had multiple offers! Tyson was always a phone call or text away. We had an instant connection and I am still so impressed by how seamlessly he handled the very different concerns of seven grown children, each with an emotional attachment to the house. He negotiated a price we were all extremely happy with, and found a lovely family to buy our mother's home. When I saw Tyson at the closing, I gave him the biggest hug. He is a consummate professional, a caring person, a savvy businessman, and a terrific broker who knows the market. On any future sale, my family will call Tyson Lewis. We recommend him whole-heartedly and he has secured a place in our hearts.” - Joanne D. & Family (sellers) 2014
“As a first time home buyer, I really didn't know what I was getting myself into - thank goodness I found Tyson! He helped through every step of the process, providing valuable and trustworthy information, advice and support along the way. Tyson's keen perspective and local knowledge of real estate was essential to finding the perfect apartment and making it through to closing smoothly. I am so grateful I was in good hands while buying my first home and I absolutely love my new apartment!” - Jessica A. (buyer) 2012
“I have personally known Tyson for a long time and- although I have used other agents in the past- when I was ready to sell my co-op in Park Slope, Tyson was an obvious choice. He is honest and performs his function with a high degree of integrity. He was very realistic in terms of the sales range and the time that should be allotted to maximize the opportunities for my unit to be sold. Tyson was flexible, accommodating and was essentially on call at a moment's notice to show my property. He is very experienced at what he does and kept my stress level to a minimum. He also maximized the setup inside my unit to reinforce the apartment's best features, which was both helpful and creative. I would work with Tyson again in a second, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell, purchase or rent.” - Dayna C. (seller) 2011
“Tyson was our broker when we sold our Carroll Gardens apartment earlier this year. We were so happy to have him help us through this process, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. Tyson is very knowledgeable, very well connected, and remains calm no matter how crazy the situation gets. Our apartment was unusual, and although we loved it, we also realized that it would not be right for everyone. We needed to find someone who would be as attracted to it as we had been, and we needed to make sure that we were able to sell for the best price. When trying to determine the listing price, Tyson gave us the information we needed, so even though we had to adjust our expectations, we were able to come up with a number that suited us all. When it came to listing the apartment, Tyson used his network of brokers to generate interest. All of our open houses were well-attended, and we had many requests for private showings. Showing the apartment, and then waiting for offers was a nerve-racking process, but Tyson was calm and optimistic the whole time. He always had time to meet and talk, and always managed to put the situation in perspective. Tyson is our go-to guy when it comes to real estate. Prior to selling our apartment, he was also invaluable in helping us purchase a house. Once again, he connected us to all the people that we needed to deal with. Several years ago, he also helped out when my parents were looking to move to Brooklyn.” - Nana & Boris (sellers) 2017
