KIRKLAND, WA – May 20, 2022 – Many Northwesterners know Tyler Lockett as #16 on the Seattle Seahawks. A wide receiver for the NFL since 2015 with enough yards, touchdowns, and accolades to impress any fan, it may come as a surprise to hear he has now added “Keller Williams real estate agent” to his resume. Lockett recently dedicated his time during off-season to take classes and obtain his license in Washington state. Which begs the question…why? As someone that seemingly has it all, why this industry? And why, out of all of the brokers to hang his license with, did he choose Keller Williams?
Lockett is no stranger to dreaming big. As a driven athlete with a faith-based mindset and a love of competition, it’s without a doubt that these skills will translate into success in real estate. Set on finding a brokerage that aligned with his values, Lockett didn’t make his selection lightly. He worked closely with Keller Williams Eastside Realty, based out of Kirkland, to make sure the KW culture was the right fit. “At first I chose Keller Williams because I saw it was big in Texas where I live,” said Lockett. “Once I signed with the Keller Williams Eastside market center, I learned about the type of values and love and help that I got, which really made it plus!” Turns out, his passion for helping others and love for his community made for an authentic marriage.
“We are so excited to have Tyler join our KW Eastside family,” said Keller Williams Eastside Team Leader Laina Treuhaft. “He has such a positive attitude and is just a joy to have around. He dove immediately into business and has already sold his first listing!” Since making the move to Keller Williams, Lockett hasn’t wasted any time building his team, Liv N Serve Real Estate. Not only did Lockett’s first listing sell in mid-May for over $3 million, but he’s also made headlines offering his services to superstar Iggy Izalea and talking plans for expansion. He hopes to expand his business to the Oklahoma and Texas markets next, in partnership with the Keller Williams Expansion Network (KWEN), a new division in the KW ecosystem as of 2021.
Now, if you were worried, don’t be. Tyler has assured fans that entering the real estate game does not mean he’s calling it quits from the NFL. He’s confident he can manage both roles with the support of Keller Williams’ models, systems, tools, and leverage. While he’s winning on the field, he’ll be helping his clients win off the field.
Keep your eye out, King County! Tyler Lockett is definitely a real estate rookie to watch.
