Welcome! Welcome! You've got a beautiful Ficus benjamina. You may experience some leaf drop as they really do dislike changes. But it will recover. Water when the soil gets dry but do not over water. It loves bright light but not direct sunlight.

I agree, Weeping Fig (Ficus benjamina) At one time I had three very tall trees in containers by our pool; those things were so finicky and would lose leaves if I changed their location by moving them even a foot away! Sometimes they would even go completely bare but they always re-sprouted new leaves.
