John grew up in Vail and graduated from the Vail Mountain School in 1984. He attended Hamilton College in Upstate New York and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.

John then moved to Osaka, Japan to teach corporate executives English. After two years of instructing all levels of Japanese employees, from new trainees to the presidents and CEOs of many well known companies, John traveled around the world for a year and relocated in San Francisco to begin a career in international business.

After working with a large Japanese firm in the international logistics and customs brokerage arena for five years, John and his new wife Danie moved to Denver as Sales Manager for the Denver branch of John's company.

Always an entrepreneur at heart, John started a new business in 1995 representing a British firm leading the world in the field of polymeric repair products and techniques. Over the course of eight years, John sold and directed projects in most of the power plants in Colorado, numerous dams, waste water plants, air force bases, office buildings and manufacturing companies. (He can tell you some fascinating stories on the chairlift!)

Two young children, an inherent love of the mountains and several death defying situations finally convinced John of the logic behind moving back to Vail to join Slifer, Smith and Frampton Real Estate and follow the impressive footsteps of his mother, Carroll Tyler (see bio under list of brokers.)

John had the incredible fortune to accept a position as assistant to Rick Pirog (see bio under list of brokers) in June of 2004. Under Rick's tutelage, John earned his broker's license in November of 2004, his GRI certification in 2006 and has assisted Rick with over $350 million in residential transactions including East West Partner's exclusive residential development in Beaver Creek, The Custom Homes on Village Walk. John has also worked with East West Partners marketing the Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa in Avon, Wintergreen Homes with their South Fork Meadows development, and Summit Habitats on The Pointe at Edwards, another high-end gated residential community.

Team Pirog and Tyler offer more than 46 years of experience in the Vail Valley real estate market. They represent owners of everything from vacant home sites to entire residential developments. But more importantly, Rick and John can offer you broad insight into raising families in the Vail Valley, retiring in the Vail Valley and truly enjoying a lifestyle most people just dream about.

"We are here for life and would love to help you join us! We will do our best to make your dreams come true!"

"We have now known John for around 8 years and he has been our realtor through buying two homes and selling one in Beaver Creek.I can't say enough about his willingness to help with basically everything regarding buying or selling a home in the Vail Valley which is invaluable when you are living in another state. John also willingly reached out to us regarding any other questions/issues we had relating to home ownership/vacationing in the local area. John is very friendly, knowledgeable and the realtor that you want to have if you are buying/selling in the Vail Valley."


"John was outstanding in his dealings with my wife and I. He listened to what we wanted and showed us homes that fitted the bill. He was extremely attentive going above and beyond at every point . he even booked us dinner at a restaurant one evening! He knew the market extremely well and has continued to be more than supportive on helping us bed down the property even after the sale was completed. A true gentleman and a pleasure to work with. I would wholeheartedly recommend working with him."

"Can't say enough about John's service to us- because we were not in Vail during most of the time the house was on the market he went above and beyond to help us manage the house as well as marketing it. He communicated extremely well with us despite our sometimes being hard to find. He was a friendly but professional presence in all of the transactions."


"John Tyler is an excellent realtor! He goes beyond the call of duty and adds his personal touch. John did a great job helping us sell our unit, which he accomplished within a matter of days! Thank you John! I highly recommend your services to anyone seeking to buy or sell."

"Spectacular service. John went above and beyond all expectations in listing our home. His investments into photography, actively promoting our home in the real estate community and tireless dedication in getting our home sold has thoroughly impressed us. John received the Slifer's Broker's Choice award, which is a peer-based award given to the Realtor other agents would most likely choose to work with. His professionalism is topnotch."
