About Tyler:

Tyler has been with Goldsmith, Molis & Gray since November of 2017.   He is married to Erica, who is a holistic health professional and reflexologist in Asheville.  They have a four year old daughter and a German shepherd.  Tyler and Erica are originally from West Virginia, but after graduating from the University of Charleston in 2014 they moved to Denver, Colorado, to live a more adventurous life of skiing, hiking and camping.  Tyler and his family moved to Asheville in October of 2017 where they continue that lifestyle.  Most importantly, Tyler focuses on raising his daughter to be happy, strong & kind.  He picked up his personal motto from his high school football coach: finish what you start, leave it better than you found it & care for others along the way.  Professionally, Tyler enjoys building relationships with local business owners and helping them succeed with their goals.
