|Here’s a sample of what my clients and colleagues value about working with me…
“As first-time home buyers, we were looking for an agent who could help us through the entire process of researching, selecting, and financing a home. Tyler met and far exceeded our expectations and hopes for an agent. He was extremely knowledgeable, patient and genuinely enthusiastic about helping us find the perfect home for our needs. At the same time, he is a fantastic listener and was able to adapt his process and the focus of his research as our understanding of our own needs evolved. Finally, he is a very skilled negotiator who is able to read a situation and craft a respectful, compelling, situation-appropriate response that enabled us to easily win our multiple-offer situation. I would recommend Tyler to any of my friends and family who are searching for a home, particularly those who are completely new to the market. – First-time home buyer
I’m not kidding when I say Tyler’s professional handling of my home sale was nothing short of masterful. It was a complicated, or “challenging” sale of a 90-year old West Seattle home and it was tiny – 700 square feet. I needed help. Everything else I had tried had failed…If you are looking for a real estate agent that knows what he is doing and is honestly interested in helping you get the results you need–with integrity–then Tyler McKenzie is the person you must call immediately. – Home seller
Tyler McKenzie is a consummate professional. His advocacy for his clients and integrity should be the benchmark by which all real estate professionals are measured. As a mortgage broker, it is essential to know you are working with an agent who will work with you as a team to create a successful transaction. When my borrowers are represented by Tyler, I know they are in good hands. Working with Mr. McKenzie is always a delight. – Mortgage Broker
“I have said this to others and to Tyler himself — never once did I feel he was acting in his interest, but always in mine as a customer. Even when it looked like the sale might not close, I didn’t feel his advice was self-motivated.
I also found that during my searching, other real estate professionals knew Tyler and spoke very highly of him.

I was introduced to Tyler through a mutual friend of ours when I was looking to purchase a home very last minute and needed expert trustworthy, diligent and very professional real estate help. Tyler came through – and then some. I felt very assured and confident that my interests were taken care of, that Tyler didn’t need me to PM him because he was already on the ball, and I could relax and let him walk me through the home purchasing process (and it was my second time through it).
Here’s the kicker. At the time of my home purchase, I had accidentally sprained BOTH my ankles (yes, literally, both ankles, sprained badly, long story) – and was very immobile. Tyler walked my dog a couple times, and (the best part) even literally hand carried me into the signing of the papers and escrow, too (because I could not walk). Yes – now that is commitment.
Recently, when I was considering doing a refinancing on my home, Tyler was quick to respond to my inquiries and did a market analysis for me, too. He’s not only about the dollar signs and sale – and as a result, a real meaningful friendship has grown over the past five years I’ve known him – from events, to parties, to business introductions, to meeting significant others, and checking out cool new eateries. He’s played an important part of my life – and will continue to in the future. Loyalty, trust, and respect are key values you’ll find with Tyler.

I simply cannot say enough good things about Tyler McKenzie. My husband and I just bought our first home in the Ravenna area of Seattle. Tyler made the whole process incredibly easy. He responded quickly to our questions and would check-in with us throughout the entire buying process. Tyler listened to us, thoroughly answered all of our questions, and took the time to understand our desires and our budget. He made sure we understood the market we were dealing with.
We trust Tyler’s knowledge of the market and the buying process, and we also trust his high level of professionalism. Tyler helped us navigate a “multiple bid” situation on the home we now own, and I am sure that his presentation of our offer and his work up to that point helped us to win out over the competing offers.
Tyler was flexible to work with us at the pace in which we wanted to pursue a new home. Even within our short time frame, Tyler got a strong sense of who we are, what we needed, and our tastes.
Tyler is someone we trust. Tyler’s representation and integrity was of the highest quality–I would recommend him without hesitation.
