read bio

Tyler, a lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, was born and raised in Washougal and now resides in Hockinson, WA.  His love of all sports, but in particular basketball, led him to Warner Pacific University and Mayville State University, where he played basketball and earned a degree in Business Management, with a minor in Finance. 

After graduation he returned to the PNW, and joined North America’s market leader in event rentals, Quest Events. Over the next 10 plus years he formed relationships to build his client portfolio in event management, traveling all over the country with companies such as Nike, Amazon, Boeing, Starbucks and Microsoft. As Covid hit, Tyler chose to go back to school where he earned his Real Estate license. 

Tyler now brings his passion and sharp attention to detail to help buyers in a highly focused search for their house, and to help sellers get the most value for their home. He understands that buying and selling is one of the biggest decisions in a client’s life and views representation and guidance of his clients through this process a true privilege. 

In 2021, Tyler met Tanner while working on a joint real estate transaction. They worked well together, and shortly after, Tyler joined VestCapital, where his roles include identifying, purchasing and selling properties for VestCapital investors. 

Away from work, Tyler enjoys spending time in the outdoors; boating, skiing, camping, with his wife Lindsey, a Registered Nurse, their two young children Kinzie and Layken, along with their friends and family.
