My Story

My name is Tyler Coates and I was born and raised here in Lexington, SC. Although I specialize in LexingtonLake Murray-Lexington Side, Lake Murray-Newberry Area, Lake Murray-Irmo/Chapin Side, Lake Murray-Saluda Side, I also assist clients in most areas around the Midlands including Columbia, West Columbia, Chapin, Irmo, Gilbert, Blythewood) and surrounding areas.

As a young, ambitious child, I pushed a lawn-mower around my parent’s neighborhood to make spending money. Over fifteen years later, my ambitious attitude has carried over into my career as a REALTOR® as I strive to serve residents of the Midlands to the best of my ability. I have always loved to work with and help people as much as I can.

While attending Lexington High School, I spent my summers working for two well-known local custom home builders in Lexington. Throughout this time I was not only able to gain an extensive amount of knowledge about proper construction, but also how important timelines are to the homeowner. I knew I had a passion for Real Estate, but also needed to continue my education to gain more knowledge and tools that would prepare me for my career. In the fall of 2007, I began to attend The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina.

After graduating from The Citadel in 2011 with an Honorable B.S. degree in Business Administration, I accepted a job with Fluor Daniel in Afghanistan working in The Project Controls Department. While working with Fluor, I was responsible for managing a section of the operational and change management budgets that would at times exceed $285 million. This made me extremely confident and knowledgeable with budgets and staying on target to ensure that the consumer remained confident in the budgets being presented.

When I returned home from Afghanistan, I worked for a local Poultry Processing Facility where I became a Shift Manager within 3 years while also breaking numerous plant records. While working in the quick, complex environment of the Poultry Processing, I learned many invaluable skills in business management and time management that would propel me to make my final transition to EXIT Real Estate Consultants.

I married my childhood sweetheart in 2013, and together we welcomed our daughter in late 2016. As a family, we enjoy remodeling distressed houses, spending time with our family, spoiling our two goofy Doberman Pinschers, and enjoying all Lake Murray has to offer in our spare time.

If you’re looking for a reputable, trustworthy, and dedicated agent, look no further! If you, your family, or anyone you know needs help finding their next home, investment property or is looking to sell their home, it would be my pleasure to assist you in any way I can. Also, if you have any questions about real estate in general that I can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be easily contacted by phone/text at 803.530.4066
