Tyler Thomas was born with a love for the outdoors, fortunate to be exposed to the lifestyle at an early age. Born and raised in Austin, Texas, he lived there until graduating from the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas in 2001.
After school, he moved to Dallas to help launch SmartShield Sunscreens. Over the next 14 years, SmartShield grew into an industry leader within the safety and industrial market with clients such as the U.S. Military and in niche retail markets focusing on active outdoor lifestyles, primarily fishing and hunting. Tyler operated as an owner and COO for SmartShield and consulted for numerous outdoor related and unrelated companies along the way.
In 2015, Tyler joined Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s to begin his career in ranch and land sales. With his deep business background, outdoor experience, and extensive network, Tyler founded TT Ranch Group. Backed by the world’s most powerful and prestigious realty brand, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s and TT Ranch Group combine the industry’s best technology and marketing with innovative methods and proven expertise within the ranch real estate market.
He spends most of his free time on various ranches and enjoying nature. He has fished and hunted throughout Texas, the U.S., and beyond. During these times, he has developed a deep passion for conservation and the preservation of our natural resources. Tyler is actively involved with the Coastal Conservation Association, The Nature Conservancy, and many other conservation-based organizations.
Tyler believes wholeheartedly in loyalty, honesty, and integrity both in business and friendship. His overall business acumen and transactional and contract negotiation experience provide a leg up for his clients when operating on their behalf.
