Tyler Cauble
The Cauble Group

Tyler Cauble is Founding Principal and President of The Cauble Group, an East Nashville-based commercial real estate brokerage serving the Greater Nashville Area. He's a native Nashvillian that has not only been a witness to the city's tremendous growth, but is also involved in it through his developments, renovation projects, and volunteer work.

As President of The Cauble Group, Tyler helps bring together buyers, sellers, landlords, and tenants in retail, office, industrial, and multi-family real estate. He’s committed to helping business owners understand the market so that they can grow their business and be part of Nashville’s future. Cauble is also the best-selling author of Open For Business: The Insider's Guide to Leasing Commercial Real Estate.

What is a personal piece of advice (business advice/saying/quote) that you lean on and could pass on to others? 
Just get out there and do it.

Best business book you’ve ever read? 
Walkable City by Jeff Speck - has more to do with commercial real estate and urban design than business in general, but hands down the best book I've ever read related to my industry.

One misstep you took in your business that you could caution others about? 
Being slower to hire. My business took off faster than I could handle, so I brought on a team to help me manage everything and we sold 50% less the following year because I was having to manage a less-than-A team.

How to you de-stress after a particularly hard day? 
By working more! I love what I do.

Have you come up with any creative social activities in 2020 that you would like to share? 
Maybe nothing creative, but I do love sitting on my grandparents' back porch (socially distanced, of course) and spending time with them.

What’s something about you that would surprise everyone reading this? 
I'm covered in tattoos and plan on getting more!

What EO benefit has been most valuable to you during these uncertain times? 
My forum has been critical to keeping me grounded and focused throughout the craziness over the last few months.
