Tyler and his team did an all-around excellent job of helping us buy our first home. They went above and beyond in putting our needs first and making sure we were kept in the loop throughout the entire process.
When we first started looking into buying a house we had visited one of the big banks to speak with a mortgage representative. Shortly after, we received a recommendation to take Tyler’s first time home buyer’s workshop. After the workshop we knew that we wanted Tyler to help us work through one of our biggest purchases. Regardless if you are looking to purchase a home in the near term or down the road, we would highly recommend attending the workshop. Tyler gives you some great and honest insight into the mortgage process in a relaxed and non-sales type environment.
After we had our offer accepted, Tyler and his team broke down what to expect over the upcoming weeks. They were extremely responsive to emails and answered any question we had no matter how simple or complex the answer ended up being. We also really enjoyed getting the weekly updates.
Overall, Tyler and his team made the process pain free so that we could enjoy our first home purchase to the full extent. Regardless of what your situation may be, we definitely think that Tyler and his team can help you out as well with your next home purchase.

Great team. Excellent communication throughout the process. Went above and beyond to help us move things along quickly and smoothly! We received regular updates on the status of everything we needed and got immediate responses to our questions- evenings and weekends included.

If you want a home buying experience that is smooth, punctual, financially sound and altogether boring then you've got to hire Tyler and his team. Rather than writing a general pre-approval letter Tyler writes one for each property specifically and this helped tremendously in buying a great home the very crowded market in Central Iowa.
If you would’ve told me four months ago that I would be buying a house I would’ve laughed you out of the room. I’m basically a 13 year old in an adult’s body. I mean, just yesterday I was watching ‘Legends of the Hidden Temple’ re-runs on YouTube. I was convinced that renting was a great option and seemed to be the way things were going to go for a few more years. My girlfriend and I had gone to a few open houses, and while my heart wasn’t really in it, I played along. My girlfriend convinced me to go to Tyler’s Homebuyer workshop. It was a tough sell since it was in the middle of the first round of hockey playoffs, but I went because deep down I was curious as to what I would learn. I came away with a lot to think about.
I was blown away. If you have ANY questions about what it takes to buy a house, this workshop is the best resource in Iowa. Tyler and Jason stripped away all of the fluff and explained the industry buzzwords that I would’ve had to google after the workshop. They deconstructed the home buying experience into a very clear step-by-step process. They challenged my assumptions about what would need to happen for a house to even be a possibility for us. Tyler knows his stuff, and he’s clearly thought a lot about how the process can be broken down and simplified. The best part? There wasn’t any pressure. At all. Tyler could’ve easily encouraged us to find a home outside our means and set us up for a long “You’ll love this time-share in Paducah” type sales presentation. Instead he explained what would happen if we found a house we wanted to buy. He gave us things to look out for and warning signs to be aware of at every step in the process. I left the workshop empowered, feeling like homeownership was a viable option for us.
Fast forward a few weeks. We found a house we wanted to buy and we got in touch. Then something completely unexpected happened; the process happened exactly the way Tyler told us it would. After some initial document gathering on our end -which we were prepared to do since Tyler told us it was part of the process- we pretty much sat back and let Tyler and his amazing team work. They were responsive, quick to reach out if there was something they needed clarification on, and efficient. I kept waiting for a voicemail to go un-returned or an email un-replied to, but it never happened. We were kept in the loop the entire time, getting an email every Friday that showed us exactly how far along we were, what was happening and if we were waiting on any third parties. We closed on time and under budget, just as Tyler promised.
We’ve had a few minor questions after closing, and Tyler’s team answered them as quickly as they had when we were in the thick of buying our house. In most cases, service after is sale is more impressive than service during the sale. The Tyler Osby Team has the best service mentality of any company I’ve ever seen.
You’ll notice I don’t have very many (if any) other reviews for anything on here. This one is by far my longest, and it’s well deserved. I was so impressed by Tyler’s work that I signed up, promptly unsubscribed from the marketing emails, and then posted this review.
Tyler’s that good.
Working with Tyler and his team was easy, especially for a first time home-buyer like myself. I had a lot of questions and they responded to my emails very fast (within an hour or less). Even if they didn't have an answer right away, they still responded letting me know that they were figuring it out.
Tyler's team was also able to move quickly and help me close in less than 6 weeks!
As a first time homebuyer, I was nervous about going through the process of buying a house. I attended Tyler and his team's first time homebuyer workshop and learned everything I could ever want to know about what it looks like to buy a home. I highly recommend this workshop, whether you are just thinking about starting to buy a home or if you're already looking with a realtor. Seriously, can't recommend the workshop enough.
Tyler helped set us up with a realtor that was able to help us based on our needs and once we found a house we loved, Tyler's team responded immediately to get us the needed documents to submit the offer and make the house ours. Updates via email and phone made the process go quickly and without hiccups, helping us close on time and under budget. The team made sure we knew what to expect moving forward, so the process was never as scary as I had imagined it!
I think the biggest testament to Tyler and his team is the fact that ALL of my friends have gone to him when buying houses. I fully plan on coming back when it's time to buy my next home.
The Tyler Osby team was very easy to work with and we had comfort in knowing we would receive a response to any question we had within a few hours. We loved being kept in the loop as steps were completed. This was the easiest closing we have ever had. They made what can be a very stressful experience a simple enjoyable one.
