Happy Client Reviews

We met Tyler almost three years ago at an open house when we were first looking to buy. I started following Tyler on social media at that time and always enjoyed looking at his listings and homes he helped buyers purchase.

When we unexpectedly found ourselves ready to sell our home in Westchester just 2.5 years later, he was the first agent we called. From the moment we met once again, he was warm, friendly, extremely knowledgeable, respectful and fun. We knew we could trust his recommendations, advice, and that he could get us top $$ for our home! He did a fantastic job helping us stage the home ourselves and brought in the best local photographer to showcase the most beautiful features of our home, complete with a 3D walk through.

Two open houses and a week and a half later we had more offers than we ever dreamed of and got an amazing sale price for our home. Tyler then walked us through the next steps seamlessly and we closed on time 30 days later without any hiccups. What more could we ask for?

I can’t recommend Tyler highly enough. 10/10!

Tyler was our buying agent for our first home and we had such an amazing experience working with him. He's incredibly knowledgable of the LA real estate market. Being first time buyers, we didn't know what the heck we were doing but Tyler went the extra mile to help us through every step of the process. He has excellent relationships with lenders and understands real estate finance very well. Ultimately we ended up finding the perfect home for our family and Tyler saved us thousands of dollars on our purchase price and loan. I highly recommend Tyler and his team at Pardee.

From listing to closing, Tyler gave specific direction on how to maximize the value of our home without false promises or inflated metrics. He understood the market nuances and created a plan that was easy for us to follow in what would otherwise be a very stressful process, ultimately leading to a fast closing with great buyers at a wonderful price!

Tyler has been a great resource in the past as well as more recently for rental listings and tenant outreach, and we will continue to work with him whenever we need him. What makes Tyler truly remarkable is his availability; he is always there when needed, making the entire experience smooth and stress-free. His personable nature adds an individualized touch to the professional relationship, creating a comfortable and trusting environment for clients. Finally, Tyler's professionalism shines through in every interaction, showcasing his expertise and dedication to providing top-notch service. In the competitive world of real estate, Tyler's exceptional qualities make him a standout agent who consistently exceeds expectations.

We've been working with Tyler for over a year, trying to find our perfect first home in this crazy market. Tyler and his team were extremly helpful from the get go. Coming from Europe, we had no idea what the process of buying a home in the US entailed and he guided us patiently through the whole thing. We saw a lot of places together, trying to understand what we really wanted, and what we didnt want. Communication was always on point, even when we were texting him on weekends, way past bed time sometimes ...In the end, he found us a house while we were out of the country, facetiming with us on the visit, and helping us past the finish line with great negociating skills. After our offer was accepted, it was a bit of a rush because we needed to close within 14 days. Tyler had many contacts to help us with inspection and great contacts with lenders as well. Everything went smoothly and fast.Now, even after we have closed on the place, he is still as responsive when we have questions and need recommendations on gutters, general contractors, taxes, you name it.Overall, highly recommend working with Tyler and his team, they are total pros, and more!

Tyler was amazing to work with. He was always willing to work around our schedules to meet with both me and my boyfriend, as well as my parents to show a variety of home options. His honest opinions and reasoning around which areas would be best for our price point was exceptional, and he went above and beyond with helping us along the way in the offer process. I cannot recommend him enough!

Great experience working with Tyler! He's extremely knowledgeable and helped us feel confident throughout the buying process. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking in LA.

Tyler was awesome guiding us through the sellers' experience. He helped us three years ago on the buy side on a different home and was equally helpful on the buy side as well.

We cannot say enough about Tyler! We met him at an open house when we were casually looking for a home last fall and then …. Fast forward, we weren’t so casual and Tyler was just the guy to help! Here are just a few highlights from our experience with him:1. Tyler proved to be a good listener as it came to understanding and acting on our expressed needs and desired price point in a home 2) importantly, he also was perhaps the most informed realtor we spoke with regarding the Westchester community (and surrounding communities) that we were most interested in acquiring our dream home 3) Tyler proved to be a strong negotiator with valuable insight concerning the specific builder and clearing prices for comparable homes 4) As we were not very familiar with all the minute details that go into a home during escrow — Tyler was very experienced in navigating the various home inspections, title , escrow and lender required deliverables and overall process to guide the transaction to closingWe cannot express our gratitude more. Not only did we have an awesome realtor experience with Tyler but I believe we also acquired a friend!

Working with Tyler made the whole experience smooth and easy. He is highly knowledgeable, professional, communicative, and thorough. With his advice, we listed my home at a fair price for the market and within a week of listing, we received five offers and three were over the asking price! After that, everything continued to be smooth sailing and we even closed a couple days early. I really couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Tyler did a marvelous job in helping to sell our condo. After 7 months of "no-sale" with another realtor, we switched to Tyler. He demonstrated his savvy immediately by recommending staging our unit and timing our reentry into the market. He identified our target audience for our condo and staged and marketed accordingly. Within 30-days we had multiple offers and closed escrow in 45 days. We were delighted with our outcome and our experience of working with Tyler.

Tyler was great to work with. We were first time home buyers, so we had a ton of questions and he was always very responsive. He hand held us through the whole process from start to finish. We hope to be able to work with Tyler again some day, and would definitely recommend him.

Tyler and Rya helped us through a very long process of buying our first house in a very competitive market. They were extremely responsive and patient as we stopped and re-started our search multiple times. They definitely fought for us and we are so excited to move in to our home. We would recommend them over and over again. Thank you!

Tyler’s an all rounder skilled in every aspect of real estate. Great local knowledge and superbly efficient communicator. We are so happy with the extraordinary service Tyler provided on our sale. Tyler managed showings, inspections and tons of other small requests dutifully and effectively. Tyler was incredibly helpful in managing every aspect of the process (sales aggreement, request for repair etc) which drew on and evidenced his considerable experience in real estate negotiations.

Tyler worked as my listing agent to help me sell my first condo. He was a valued partner throughout the entire process explaining the best strategy for us to take during the pre-sale process all the way through close of escrow. He was very knowledgeable about the entire sale process and always made himself available to either answer my questions or deal with any minor issues that came up during showing or the close process. I would highly recommend Tyler to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. I had a great experience working with him and his team and I look forward to working with him again for my next purchase!

Best experience with a realtor to date! Tyler was upfront and straightforward in our initial meeting and remained steadfast and confident through the entire process; even as the market started to shift. He also went above and beyond during the escrow process to assure the deal kept moving forward. We are grateful for the hard work Tyler and Rya put into selling our home and would most definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in the LA area.

From our first call, to handing the keys to our new home, Tyler provided me and my family a bespoke, safe, and thorough service for buying a home. He was really the first one that force us to discuss financial considerations, and how to shop for homes at an agreed budget. There was no judgement on his end, and he only offered his helpful insight on every place we visited. When we finally decided to place an offer, everything move quickly, consistently, and in good order. The seller agent was even impressed with his coordination of the inspections and the vendors he referred. He was really our best advocate, and I don't think we would have had such a stress free process without him. I will enthusiastically refer him to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home. When it comes time to list my home we bought, we'll work with him again, no second thoughts.

My husband and I were looking to buy our first home, and Tyler came recommended by a friend. From our first conversation, I could tell that he had a competitive approach to bidding in a tough market, which was exactly what I was looking for. Tyler told us that only 5% of his value would come from him finding us home listings, and I found that to be totally true. Once we discovered homes that we wanted to offer on, Tyler swooped in to help us make winning bids. Two of our offers were accepted, and then he helped us seamlessly negotiate through a 30 day close of escrow on our dream home. I would absolutely recommend Tyler to anyone, and we’ll certainly call him when it’s time to sell. It’s a pleasure working with Tyler and his assistant Rya.

Tyler and his team did a fantastic job preparing my home for a quick sale at a fantastic price. He worked with me to make sure my needs were met whether that was answering my questions, making suggestions or explaining the process each step of the way. If you want an outstanding agent to work with, Tyler can’t be beat!

Tyler is extremely responsive and helpful throughout the process. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a property in LA. He showed us a ton of properties and helped us avoid a few pitfalls that could have been a bad home/investment.

Tyler went above and beyond in the most challenging buyer’s market in recent history to help us purchase our first home. He worked with us as we refined our priorities and explored new parts of LA, never flinching to meet us for weekend and evening showings from Tarzana to Pasadena down to Long Beach. He was the consummate professional, exercising his discretion where appropriate while also respecting our family’s needs. Tyler helped manage everything and made the process seamless. He’s the total package of smarts, excellent judgment and grit - 10/10, highly recommend.

I would highly recommend Tyler & his team if you are looking to buy or sell a home. He recently helped me find my dream home in LA - a fully renovated single family home, with guesthouse and beautiful yard. He was incredibly patient and helpful as I decided which neighbourhood to focus on, and moved quickly once we identified the right property. He has an incredible network of contractors and partners, that I have been able to tap into and seek advice from. He is a superior negotiator, demonstrating creative thinking when needed - a quality that cannot be underestimated in this process. I have a busy job, and not a lot of free time, and he and his team, made it so easy for me, arranging apt’s/ viewings around my schedule and even collecting the keys for my new house! I look forward to working with him again in the future, on my next move!

Tyler has now represented us as both a seller and a buyer, and for both transactions, we relied on his expertise and knowledge every step of the way. He's extremely knowledgeable about the market and has fostered a wide network of connections. He was always willing to tap into this network on our behalf, helping us to better position ourselves in an extremely tricky market. We always felt like Tyler had our back throughout negotiations, and we can't imagine navigating the process without his expertise.

Tyler helped us sell our home and purchase a new home in our neighborhood. He was really wonderful to work with: super responsive, informative, knowledgeable, honest, and respectful of what we wanted and the decisions we made. He went above and beyond in pretty much every respect, and has continued to be responsive and helpful post-transaction. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.

It has been a long journey to find our new home & Tyler was so helpful every step of the way. He had his hands full with us (in my opinion) and never made me feel like I was too much. Obviously this was our first time and he really understood that and helped us in more ways than I expected. Rya (his team) was also so lovely to work with and was really helpful in showing us how to look at things differently. Would definitely recommend them for new or experienced buyers!

We bought our first home with Tyler, and it was a wonderful experience to work with him. Our friends previously bought a home, with Tyler as their agent, and we collectively have only great things to say. From the beginning, he provided education and insight on loans we had not previously considered, this was a gamechanger for our home buying process. He has great contacts, we've used his recommendations throughout the process - from banks to inspectors to vendors, they've all been fantastic. I'm truly grateful to have worked with Tyler and will recommend him to anyone in the area, he's a wealth of knowledge and a lot of fun!

I was looking for an investment property in Venice and Tyler helped me find the perfect one for me. His knowledge of the Venice market is impeccable and he even helped me calculate income and expenses with a series of properties, so I could evaluate each one intelligently.

Tyler was referred to us by a friend who'd recently also gone through the daunting process of buying a first home in Los Angeles - and feeling like the deck was stacked against us as a self employed small business owners.

Tyler & Rya were great - they talked us through the process, calmed our nerves, connected us to the right options - from prospective lenders for q&a through to who to help with inspections. They negotiated well - advised us when to bend a little, and were great coaches on helping us feel confident in saying yes, and probably more importantly, in saying no.

When buying your first home, particularly in a market like Los Angeles you ride an emotional rollercoaster. You get excited, you get beat, you get burnt, people cancel sales, investors dump money and beat your offer, but with Tyler by your side, you'll find the home you love - and you'll buy it.

On a side note -Tyler is the kind of person you could have a coffee or a beer with - he gets it, he can see through the bad flips, the neglected details, and can help you see the promise when it's there.

Tyler was amazing to work with. He made the process of buying home exciting and was quick to respond to every single question my Fiance and I had. I would 100% recommend Tyler to anyone looking to buy a home. His professionalism, attention to detail, and dedication to his clients was really impressive. We are both really happy with the home we bought!

As first-time home buyers in Los Angeles, working with Tyler made the process smoother and more stress-free than we could've imagined.

He walked us through everything with patience, responsiveness, and clear market expertise. Tyler guided us on how to approach financing, helped us figure out which neighborhoods were right for us, and had great negotiation skills once we found a home we loved.

Tyler's network also proved to be invaluable. His recommended contacts for loan agents, home insurance, inspections and repairs were all incredible to work with. Tyler communicated and coordinated all logistics with them during the escrow process, helping us close quickly without any stress - we could take a backseat and trust that everything was on track thanks to Tyler.

We felt like Tyler was looking out for our best interests every step of the way thanks to his honesty and attention to detail. We'll definitely be recommending him to friends/family and working with him again if we move in the future. Thanks Tyler!

One of the best in the business. This was our second transaction with Tyler and once again everything was so easy. Tyler and his team did all the heavy lifting on coordinating photos, showings and all the documents it takes to sell a property. Could not recommend anyone better than Tyler and his team. You will not be disappointed!

My family loved working with Tyler! Prompt, efficient, kind, knowledgeable of the area, and helped us get our dream home. I recommend Tyler to all of my family and friends, as he is that amazing! He was just EASY to work with. Thanks, Tyler!

Tyler was extremely helpful and patient with us as we searched for a home in and around LA for over a year. He went above and beyond to set-up showing appointments, provide his candid advice and opinions, and set us up with everything we needed once we finally had an offer accepted. We are first time home buyers and really appreciated Tyler's support and active engagement in our search, especially during this difficult buyers market where we were met with a lot of disappointment along the way. I also really loved working with his associate Rya, who graciously stepped in to help on occasion when Tyler was unavailable. Highly recommend working with their team!

Tyler is amazing! He is so knowledgeable and helpful and definitely is able to understand what we wanted. We are first time home buyers and even though we didn’t know the right vocabulary to say what we were looking for, Tyler was able to figure it out and help us get the perfect home. I could not recommend him more highly.
