About Tyler Wilson
Coming from a place of integrity and
passion, Tyler Wilson is a respected Mortgage Loan Officer who is committed to delivering his
clients what they deserve the most: lending experiences that are seamless,
productive, and worth remembering. Driven to help families unlock their
unique versions of ‘house to home’ success, Tyler brings with him an extensive background involving tailored
financial planning, unique
lendee/program matching, client advocation, and the art of turning every initiative into one with a viable path
forward. Even more, Tyler is passionate about not only proving to clients just
how enjoyable and stress-free this leg of the journey can be, but doing so all
while ensuring they feel nothing but confident as they take on one of life’s
most fundamental investments.
Born in Germany as a product of a compassionate 20+ year school teacher (mother) and a gritted 30+ year retired Colonel/Army Ranger (father), Tyler learned early on in life the innate value of perseverance, hard work, and keeping an open mind. Part of that stems from his army brat upbringing where he was exposed to various cultures and customs following his father's stations, and part from witnessing just how much of your future is based on the decisions you make today. With this as his base and upon moving to Huntsville, Alabama in 1999 for his father’s last assignment, it became the catalyst for Tyler to earn a Bachelor’s in Finance with a concentration in Banking and Investments and minoring in Economics from The University of Alabama in 2007. In addition, scale within the finance sector, notably becoming a former Branch Manager for one of the nation’s largest lenders.
Why the shift? Amid house hunting with his wife Alaina after the housing bubble and economic crash, Tyler witnessed first-hand the harsh repercussions of an unstructured mortgage lending process; not once, but twice. Wishing that type of scenario on no one, it ultimately inspired Tyler to pivot his financial background to dive deep into the mortgage finance arena - all with a goal of becoming the very resource he wished he had during his own mortgage lending ventures. In addition, to eliminate the far too common fears and apprehensions involved with mortgage lending by pedestaling education and transparency, and ultimately empower others with non-cookie-cutter insights that enable them to confidently make decisions for themselves now and for their futures.
Fast forward to today, Tyler has been a licensed loan originator since 2012, is a licensed education instructor through the Alabama Real Estate Commission, the Creator of The Clear To Close Team, and has accelerated to become a Top 1% Mortgage Originator. Furthermore, holds firm specializations involving FHA, VA, USDA/RD, NON-QM, JUMBO Financing, and diversified Conventional Programs. Applying those competencies to practice, Tyler has helped countless families and individuals navigate the complex processes of mortgage lending, gain long-term financial security, and build/manage wealth in the best form this country provides - real estate. But what has solidified his client’s trust the most is his sharp eye for spotting lender red flags, taking his time to help others on their personal journey (YOU are much more than just a business opportunity), and above all, for truly valuing the trajectory of his clients' successes just as much as they do.
As a self-proclaimed mortgage nerd, Tyler is always seasoned with the current industry trends to remain ten steps ahead. Furthermore, he loves optimizing his clients' successes from prequalification to closing by instilling the notion of never settling. To Tyler, there is a perfect match out there for every client, and he made it his mission to build those bridges. However, when Tyler is not working, you can find him enjoying family time with his two sons Talan and Asher such as playing soccer, hiking, and fishing, and spending time with his beautiful and A-class culinary wife, Alaina.
