Tyler Kunkle

Buyer's Agent

Tyler Kunkle

Tyler was born in Manhattan Beach before moving to North Carolina. After receiving his BA from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, he returned back to Los Angeles where his heart always remained. Tyler began his real estate career running a top producing team on the Westside of Los Angeles. He sold over 40 homes in his first year and has continued on this path of success. The home buying process can be daunting and confusing, especially for first time buyers, but Tyler prides himself on making his clients feel comfortable at all stages of a deal. With constant communication and the highest commitment of service, Tyler is known for his authenticity, timely responses and extensive real estate knowledge. He understands the competitive LA market and maintains great relationships with agents across the city, resulting in successful client deals in multiple offer situations. “I truly love what I do. I get to help my clients jumpstart amazing stages of their lives, whether it be buying their first condo or finding the perfect home to raise their kids in. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else”.

When not working, Tyler loves to play in weekly basketball leagues, get to the sand volleyball courts, golf and watch any and all UNC Tar Heels sporting events.

Our first experience with buying a home took nearly 20 months and involved several losing counteroffers, low inventory, inaccurately described properties, and exorbitant overbids. Tyler made this otherwise…opaque and frustrating process much easier for us to navigate, employing an even keel and a frank assessment of the challenges we faced. His honesty, patience, and diligence in helping us select the perfect place was invaluable. Balancing our hectic travel schedule, incredibly specific demands, and lack of experience in the buying process, Tyler went above and beyond to make certain that we were happy with the biggest purchase of our lives. If you're looking for someone who understands the landscape of the Los Angeles real-estate market at an expert level while displaying the soft skills to help provide you perspective and find value within that market, Tyler is your man.

Tyler was a great partner during the home buying process. He was always very prompt in identifying properties we would be interested in, scheduling tours and following up…with the sellers. Tyler was also extremely helpful in the contract review and flagging potential issues. My husband and I would definitely recommend seeking out Tyler for your home buying and/or selling needs.

"Tyler was awesome. I've had the pleasure of working with Tyler this past summer. He embodies selflessness and is as good of a person as he is a…realtor. Tyler uses his smarts as well as his heart to navigate my first home purchase; regardless of the hectic Southern California market. What shocks me is his determination and willingness he has a "get it done" attitude. He continued to show me listings on a weekly basis and was very accommodating to my schedule. I hope to work with Tyler on my second home purchase in the coming future. Tyler is a name to know in the So Cal Real Estate game."

I cannot recommend Tyler enough! He made our first house buying experience easy and less intimidating. He was ALWAYS available to us when we needed him. Tyler feels…more like a longtime friend and less like an agent. I'm a little sad we won't be seeing him so much anymore now that the process is over!

My wife and I met Tyler when he was helping a fellow agent with a listing in Mar Vista. We had just started our house search and had…no idea what to expect or how to go about the actual purchasing part. Recognizing this, he spent a good amount of time just talking us through the process at the open house. Following that weekend, he was extremely quick and diligent with his follow up. He spent another hour with us walking through everything in detail and providing us with resources. This was all before there was ever a commitment to work together. He was extremely patient with us and provided lots of great options. We ended up seeing 40 houses but then decided to put our search on hold. Even during this period, he worked with us to make sure we were happy. Every text/email received a quick response. Finally, we found 610 - it was the 41st house we saw - and things just came together. The final sprint was where Tyler really shined. He walked us through every single step in so much detail that we never felt uncomfortable with all of the documents we had to sign (and there were MANY). With all of the different people that get involved in completing the transaction, it really helped to have such a professional in our corner keeping our best interests at the forefront. Overall, a great experience and we couldn't be happier with our first home.

This is why you hire Tyler: He scrolled through a lot of microfiche to find a building permit for us. Tyler consistently went the extra mile to not…only get the deal done, but make sure we were comfortable with the house.

Tyler operates with an attentive, energetic, no-nonsense attitude. He stayed focused on our needs, not his personal taste and bias as so many agents do. Communication was always…prompt and clear, consistently delivering balanced input to make sure our buying goals were achieved.

My husband and I had a fantastic experience buying a new home with Tyler: our search for a new house could have complicated by the demands of our…new baby but Tyler went out of his way to accommodate our hectic schedule at all times. He was super quick to understand what we were looking for, and always offered thoughtful and refreshingly honest advice. Tyler has the ability to make things happen quickly without losing track of any details - and he made sure we were always clear as to where we were in the fast moving process. We couldn’t recommend him more highly!

Tyler was highly recommended to us by our close friends who also have him as their realtor. They couldn’t say enough amazing things about him and now I…know why. From the first meeting, Tyler was beyond wonderful. He explained the entire home buying process to us in detail and terms we could understand. As first-time homebuyers, we had MANY questions throughout the process, all of which Tyler answered patiently and honestly. He would even respond to texts at 11pm at night! He went above and beyond any expectations we had of a real estate agent. Tyler actually made our home buying process incredibly positive and fun. He has amazing energy which made each interaction a positive one! He was always available to answer questions and was an excellent communicator. He exercised amazing due diligence in each step of the way and negotiated with the seller to get us everything we wanted! We cannot say enough about Tyler’s knowledge, professionalism, and positive energy. He helped make the process of buying our first home completely memorable and something we will cherish forever. Tyler is more than our real estate agent now. He’s our new friend!! We look forward to having Tyler as our real estate agent for all of our future properties

Where do I start with Tyler? We met him while casually checking out open houses just for fun and we immediately connected and liked him. Two weeks later…we found a place we wanted to make an offer on and frantically searched for his card to call him up. I knew right away I wanted Tyler to represent us in buying our new home. Long story short, the place we wanted didn't work out but Tyler was there every step of the way with our search from Santa Monica to where we ended up, our new loft in downtown LA. Tyler and the entire team at Halton Pardee went above and beyond all of our expectations.

We couldn't be happier and more grateful for having Tyler represent us. He gave us great advice, was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. We always felt like we were his only clients. He was by our side every step of the way, always available...I swear he does not sleep. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house. He's become a great friend and we can't wait to work with him again.

We hired Tyler Kunkle to help us buy our first house. I have to say that we are not the easiest clients to have. Despite that, and it…being a crazy seller's market, and us deciding midway through to entirely switch areas, Tyler was calm, collected, and helpful throughout. In the end his ability to negotiate relationships and work with the seller's agent was what put us ahead of the five other potential buyers and got us our house

Buying a home in general can be a very stressful and emotional experience especially for the first time. We were so happy that we picked Tyler to work…with because he made the entire process so comfortable and guided us every step of the way. He was so knowledgeable about areas in LA and found so many places for us to see. He listened to exactly what we were looking for and what things were most important to us and helped us find the perfect place. He was a skilled negotiator and was extremely patient throughout the entire journey answering questions and providing us with thoughtful advice daily. In addition Tyler was thorough and diligent but most importantly he truly cared about us being happy and finding the best place. I cannot say enough great things about Tyler and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone buying or selling their home

Tyler was the best agent we could have asked for. I couldn’t believe how responsive he was to all of our requests and questions and was in constant…communication throughout the entire process. Tyler was highly knowledgeable about the the LA market and the ins-and-outs of the buying process. Most importantly, he knows how to get the deal closed. We had 10+ offers on our place and because of Tyler, we are now able to call that place home. I would recommend Tyler to every single person I know who is jumping into the buying process.

I had the pleasure of working with Tyler on the financing for one of his clients. I had already worked with my client for a few months…on the pre-approval of his loan, and was then introduced to Tyler once my client began to make offers on properties. Tyler did an excellent job throughout the entire escrow process. His communication at every stage of the process was great, and he was able to secure a credit for my client from a listing agent who was a challenge to work with throughout the entire process. Thanks to Tyler's efforts, my client was able to secure a lovely home in an excellent and in-demand area of Los Angeles, and I know that my client is thrilled with the representation that he received from Tyler. I highly recommend Tyler to assist you with your next home purchase.

I was immediately impressed with Tyler the first time I met him at an open house - he was extremely knowledge about different neighborhoods, schools, and real estate…in general. From the point my husband and I decided to work with Tyler to moving into our house, he made our first home buying process painless. He guided us through the process and was always available to answer questions. He dealt with a difficult selling agent in stride and was great in negotiating our asks for fixes that needed to be done for the house. Finally Tyler was upfront and honest about anything that came up in the process and gave us great advice - I always felt like I could trust him. I would recommend Tyler to anyone who is thinking about buying a home
