Austin Tyler’s extensive background in corporate and healthcare real estate includes working with multiple partners on diverse projects and understanding a variety of specialized needs. With a focus on site selection and advisory services, Austin brings a relational perspective to every layer of his work.
Before coming to DPA, Austin Tyler began his real estate career at Biltmore Farms in Asheville, where the focus on community involvement and stewardship informed his future philosophies and projects. His work on Biltmore Park Town Square, a $200 million, mixed-use town center, earned him the SIOR designation as the lead leasing agent. His responsibilities included development, retail and office leasing, property management, and construction management.
Years later, he directed the real estate portfolio and assets of Mission Health System, which included 5.5 million square feet over 18 counties. In this role he repositioned lease administration (over 200 leases,) oversaw development transactions and all acquisitions and dispositions – including portfolio monetization and sale/leaseback. Subsequently, he expanded his site selection and advisory services into the medical sector, including local independent physicians’ groups and clinics, as well as regional, multi-location partners, like Healthcare Corporation of America (HCA).
Austin’s work as an engaged partner in the local non-profit sectors underscores his belief that every healthy community must actively care for its members. His site selection and advisory roles with Appalachian Mountain Community Health Center, Haywood Street Congregation’s affordable housing initiative, and Manna Foodbank support the creation of viable solutions to WNC’s medical, housing, and food access inequalities.
