Tyler Hanson first lived in Seattle and then moved to San Diego to attend the real estate program at the University of San Diego. While attending, he became immersed in the real estate community and was selected to represent USD in the Annual NAIOP University Challenge.
Ever since his teenage years, Tyler has maintained two passions in life; entrepreneurship and real estate. His entrepreneurial endeavors include, mowing his neighbors lawns through high school, taking a leave of absence from USD to “fix and flip” a distressed property, launching and operating a local pressure washing company in Seattle, and founding a street-legal golf cart rental/shuttle company here in San Diego, which still runs strong. Shortly after obtaining his degree in 2014, Tyler joined the Tenant Representation Group at Cushman & Wakefield – San Diego. Continuing on a similar path, he joined Kidder Mathews in late 2019.
He is fortunate to have found an avenue that can feed both his entrepreneurial spirit and his passion for real estate by committing to a career as a tenant representation broker – helping all companies from local startups to Fortune 500 companies with their real estate leasing and purchases.
Tyler is intrigued by the vast and quick changes currently taking place in the workplace. He enjoys learning what the new workplace needs so he can contribute to his clients’ growth and create the most enjoyable and productive place they attend each and every day. Tyler prides himself on being an independent and original problem solver. Bring him a challenging property case!
Before expediting to a simple list of properties and their cost, Tyler will take a birds-eye view to understand the ins and outs of his clients’ business. He focuses on the type of employee base (current and in the future), industry type, employee locations, commute time factors, culture objectives, productivity efficiencies, economic goals, and many other facets to advise the best strategy he can.
While Tyler is based in San Diego, his clients and their locations span throughout the West Coast.
Tyler resides among the boating community in Point Loma, where he sails competitively or finds himself being active on the water some other way. He also enjoys traveling to new countries; anything in nature such as backpacking or skiing in the mountains.
