Looking for some input on a wide angle lens

I am planning on purchasing a wide angle lens and would like to get everyone's input/advice/opinion etc... I currently have a Nikon D5200. I would use it to shoot city-scapes and indoor real estate shots (these would be for my company's website to show the type of work we do, they would not be used for Real Estate sales).  I currently own an 18-55 kit lens, 35mm 1.8 and 70-300 3.5-5.6.  I plan on purchasing a 24-70.  I know that some of these options will leave a gap, but I am ok with that.  I am would like to know which has the best image quality and reliability.  They all fall within an acceptable price range.  I am willing to spend some more money, if there are any other suggestions.  I would probably put my max budget at US$1150 and consider the Nikon 12-24 f4

I am debating between the following:

Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f/2.8 Pro FX Lens for Nikon

Tokina AT-X116PRDXN AT-X f/2.8 PRO DX 11-16mm Ultra-wide Angle

Tokina AT-XAF124DXN 12-24mm Wide-Angle

Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM ELD SLD Aspherical

Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 EX DG IF HSM Aspherical Ultra Wide Angle Zoom

Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Wide-Angle Zoom Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

Thanks in advance and look forward to everyone's opinions.
