Tyler Smith

 

Running Time: 1:49

Background: 

Tyler Smith works with Keller Williams Realty in Folsom, California.  He services the Tri-County area of: Sacramento, Placer, and El Dorado Counties.  Last year, he closed 171 transactions with a total sales volume of 32 million.  His average sales price was 187 thousand, of which 16% were buyers and 84% were sellers.  He operates a team with 5 members:  2 executive assistants, 1 buyer agent, 1 field runner, and 1 team leader.
 
Tyler Smith is the team leader of The Smith Team.  He has been an agent for 7 years.  Tyler specializes in selling REO and Short Sale properties.  Last year Tyler was ranked the #1 Agent for Keller Williams Realty in Sacramento County and ranked in the Top 50 agents nationally for Keller Williams Realty.  Not bad for a young man who is only 27 years old and selling homes in a down market.

Tyler started into real estate at a young age.  Although he had a slow start, he is firing on all cylinders now.  Tyler has a rare gift of being both analytical and charismatic.  He uses his analytical skills to develop and implement systems and standardized checklists.  He uses his charisma to quickly build rapport with asset managers, prospects, and staff.

Tyler loves to learn new ideas…and implement them.  He is energetic, full-of-life, animated, and tenacious.  He has the gift of story telling and uses it to paint vibrant pictures.  He peppers his speech with wonderful quips such as:  “go from making a living to making a fortune”, “if it doesn’t make money, it doesn’t make sense”, and “what you give out in slices, comes back to you in loaves.”  Tyler believes “the early bird gets the worms” and typically rises before daybreak.
