Blake is a sharp negotiator with more than a decade of local buying and selling experience throughout Palm Beach County. His knowledge of contracts, broad experience in home and condominium sales, and “straight shooter” approach means his clients get a trusted guide with a keen eye for the best deals in a quickly changing market.
A LIFE OF SALES
You could say Blake has been in customer service since before he could drive, working with his father as he managed upscale country clubs throughout the US. Blake continued work in high-end properties through college. After graduating from Penn State with a degree in marketing, Blake and his wife, Lauren, moved to the Palm Beaches where they live now with their Beagle, Toby, and newborn, Connor.
WHAT HE LOVES ABOUT OUR AREA
Real estate is a 24/7 job, but when he is not assisting clients, Blake is enjoying all that Florida has to offer. “I have a love for the ocean and enjoy snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, and relaxing on the beach,” says Blake. As a serious hobby, Blake enjoys taking care of his large saltwater aquarium.
LEARNED FROM THE BEST
Blake honed his work ethic and eye for detail while working for noted real estate magnate Jeff Greene. As the leasing manager at The Strand in West Palm Beach, Blake successfully negotiated hundreds of condominium rentals, while also co-managing the facility. Blake is now the showing manager for Jeff Lichtenstein’s # 1 team.
COMMUNICATION IS KEY
“I’m always direct and honest with my clients,” says Blake. “I don’t leave anything out. I want them to know what’s going on, all the time.” Blake starts by taking the time to learn in depth about his clients’ needs and goals. “I don’t just ask their budget,” he says frankly. “I want to know who they are, what their values are, and what’s important to them so I can guide them to the best possible home. On the listing side, it’s the same thing, as I need to listen to what the Buyer is looking for and communicate why the home we are representing is the right fit.”
AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE
Blake loves what he does and is driven by his clients’ satisfaction of making each transaction stress free, enjoyable, and getting them a great deal.

“Blake, We cannot thank you enough for all that you did to find us this beautiful home. We are truly happy here and well, we wouldn't be here without you, so thanks! Finding a home in West Palm Beach area is a difficult process, especially if you don't already live here. Add to that a large dog and a cat and let's just say, it was complicated. Homes come and go in a day, so you have to be on top of it and have someone who is looking out for your best interest. We would find homes online, call the listing Realtor and the homes would be gone by the time we reached someone. I can't tell you how many realtors we talked to, we would find one we liked, ask them if they would be our realtor, they would say yes, but in the end, when the day of showing apartments and houses were done, so were they. You were so different. You weren't just our 1 day realtor. You worked with us, we found a location and you showed it to us several times. We thought, this is it, this is perfect, in the end, it wasn't, but you didn't just walk away, you stayed with us, you listened to our needs, were responsive, sent us listings for the type of properties you thought would fit our needs and were pet friendly. It took time, it took patience and persistence and you were the only one who stood by us until we found our home.Also, don't forget to tell me what sauce you would like, if you want to buy a jar, that's fine, but we are going to give you a jar as well. Let me know so we can get it to you!Thank you again Blake, we will be telling everyone about you!”

“I have known Blake for about 3 years now and had the pleasure of working with him as my realtor when looking for a condo in Downtown West Palm Beach. Blake's knowledge about the downtown real estate market is multi-faceted and he is most certainly able to do more than the average agent. I appreciated his ability to advise me though the entire process with my tight moving time-frame. He was there to help and support me in every possible way needed. In addition, he is very patient and looks for the best interest of the client. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Blake to any person who is looking to rent, buy or sell a home, as well as seek his service in any of my future real estate transactions.”

“Blake made a potentially stressful move from New York City to West Palm Beach so easy. I contacted him a couple months before as I was trying to learn more about the market, and he answered my questions and sent me listings so I knew what I was dealing with. When I visited to find an apartment, Blake had our day carefully planned, showed me three great options, and three hours later I signed on an apartment! I never felt pressured, Blake was very patient, and he listened to my priorities and kept me in budget. I am very grateful and happy with my new place!”

“I have worked with Blake twice while looking for a place within Palm Beach County. Both times that I worked with him he was extremely helpful and very responsive. I had very selective criteria when it came to finding a new place and I was very picky about what neighborhood I wanted to live in. Blake was very proactive about finding several places for me to view and he was very flexible with his time as well. Within a short period of time I had a new place to live that met all of my needs and I'm very pleased with how quickly the process went. My family and I thank Blake very much and I would highly recommend working with him.”

“I had my 2-bedroom condo in San Matera posted on Zillow as For Sale By Owner. After not having much luck obtaining any serious traffic or offers, I decided to reach back out to Blake with the hopes of getting the condo sold as quickly as possible. Blake responded promptly and set an appointment to meet with me at the condo to discuss services and recommended pricing. I found Blake and Jeff Lichtenstein to be very professional and knowledgeable about the current market in San Matera. I decided to list with them during our meeting and they placed the condo on the market immediately.Right off the bat we had multiple showings and had an offer come in within the first week. While the initial offer was under asking price, Blake was able to negotiate to a full price deal. After the terms of the contract had been accepted, Blake kept me updated every step of the way to closing. His office was also very organized and we were able to close on the condo within 2 weeks after the contract had been executed. I would say my overall experience with Blake was excellent and I would recommend him to others looking to sell their home or condo”

“We had the absolute pleasure of working with Blake Tyson during the sale of our home, which we had resided in for the past 34 years. Blake was extremely polite, professional and went above and beyond the call of duty!Blake knew the area/comps very well and helped us to price our home accordingly. He made showings a breeze by communicating each request to us and would personally accompany each showing and give us immediate feedback. Within a month we ended up having 4 offers on the table at the same time, which Blake negotiated to get us $11,000 above our asking price.Not only did Blake do a great job with negotiations, he also helped us manage our move by referring vendors for movers and junk removal. We had a problem with our first moving company who cancelled on our moving day, but we were able to get another moving company on short notice, that Blake recommended, to come out within the next couple days. While this did put us behind schedule, Blake said he was going to make sure we didn't miss our closing date.Closing day arrived with the closing scheduled for 4pm and we still needed to move a ton of furniture and junk out of the home. This is where Blake not only showed his commitment to the sale, but also to us as people. Blake showed up first thing in the morning in jeans, a t-shirt and gloves and went to work helping us get everything out of the house. He even loaded up our uhaul for us! If that's not going above and beyond, I don't know what is.Not to mention, Blake also helped us find our new home in Jupiter. He made that an extremely easy and stress free process. All we can say is we couldn't be happier with the service we received from Blake Tyson and Illustrated Properties in general. I would recommend Blake to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in the future. Blake makes you feel as though you are his only client! Even after the sale, he has still stayed in touch.Thank you again for everything Blake!”

“Dear Blake:Patty and I want to thank you for all the time that you invested in locating a home for us. As newcomers to the state, you quickly established yourself as the one real estate agent that we could depend on in terms of punctuality and willingness to accommodate our needs. You helped us immeasurably, not only in finding us a great deal on the home of our dreams near the beach, but in renting one first and standing by us in our attempts to reconcile difficulties with the landlord. Your involvement compelled the landlord to rebate us an additional $495.00! Patty and I look forward to working with you in the future and will gladly recommend your services to anyone needing a real estate professional.”

“Hi Jeff, My wife and I would like to thank you and your team for the great work you all did with sale of a former home and the purchase of our current home. Blake and Craig impressed both of us with their perseverance, professionalism and temperament. They made us feel very comfortable with the process and kept up our morale when the initial sale of our home fell through. They were also very responsive to our inquires and worked tirelessly to ensure that both transactions reached a successful conclusion.Our best wishes to all for continued success,”

“Hi Jeff: I would like to say that the showing and sale of my property in PGA National was a pleasure and well coordinated. Blake mostly came to my home and gave me immediate feedback on every prospect. I tell people I don't mind paying the commission because I feel with your group, the commission was earned. We had a lot of traffic generated and good feedback.I felt the brochures were beautiful and the pictures professionally done. Having someone at your house is the best possible scenario. In the past, the realtor would have to run down agents for feedback and most of the time it was scarce. With Blake I knew everything about the prospect and their interest level.I was a new home sales representative for major builders and my home was handled in the same professional manner as a new home sales office. I felt that objections or questions could be handled right on the spot. It is a stressful time when you are selling or buying and Echo Fine Properties made the process better.You have a well oiled machine and I wish you continued success. Feel free to share my comments with your future clients.Thank you,”

“After an extensive search, we chose Jeff Lichtenstein and Echo Fine Properties to sell our home, because we noticed the following things about his realty firm:His firm had a high volume of sales in our neighborhood;His advertising material and photos of homes for sale were very professional;His listings seemed to have a shorter time on the market than other realtors; and When we were making a realtor selection, Jeff took time away from an out-of-the-country family vacation to talk with us.We benefited from all of the above and, as a result, achieved a relatively quick and above-market sale price for our home.While our home was on the market, Jeff’s team was very responsive. Blake and Craig provided much of the day-to-day assistance and worked seamlessly together. Someone was always available and made time for us when we needed them. Blake’s being personally there for showings/ inspections and his post-showing communication couldn’t have been more prompt, thorough or valuable. Craig’s attention to detail and ability to keep documents completion correct and on schedule ensured there were no glitches in the process.Still, Jeff was always available for counsel, guidance and negotiating at critical times. He made the effort to listen, understand, and be creative in meeting our needs. His extensive experience and skill in pricing, responding to offers and negotiating were invaluable.Even though our home value was modest by comparison, Jeff and his team gave us the same robust, thorough communication and professional services (photography, advertising copy and marketing brochure) that he gave his multi-million-dollar home sellers.After a sales contract was signed, their very efficient processes ensured no balls were dropped or momentum lost. Closing was smooth, fast and had no glitches. Every detail was taken care of.All-in-all, we know we made the right decision to select Echo Fine Properties and Jeff Lichtenstein as our realtor and would do it again in a heartbeat.”

“Dear Jeff, Please accept our sincerest apologies for not having written to you much sooner to tell you how extremely pleased we were working with you, Craig and Blake. There is not one thing that we were disappointed or frustrated with at any point during the sale of our house in Grand Cay at the PGA National or the purchase of our new condo at The Landmark. When we decided to sell our house after 20+ years, Craig suggested we hire an inspector to check the house out with which we did. After the minor adjustments were made and the house went on the market, Craig and Blake never once tried to get us to change our adamant instructions that only serious buyers be shown the house and that they be told there was not much leeway in the price, no “lookers” and no open houses. We probably had eight or nine people viewing the house, with four bids, and we took the final one which was an offer we couldn’t refuse. Shortly after we put the house on the market, we began looking at condos at The Landmark. As it was a bittersweet decision leaving our house which we loved, Craig and Blake assured us they would find us a place we would also grow to love …… and they did! We have known you for over 20 years and we were always impressed by your motivation, as well as your strong desire over the years to be the one to sell our house when we were ready. It was this, plus the fact that years ago during one of the worst hurricanes our area had in decades you were thoughtful enough to send us photos while we were traveling of our house and the pool area where the screened enclosure had come down so that we could return home to do repairs (during which time we got hit by the second hurricane!) made us decide that you would be the one we would sign with to sell our house when the time came and we have not regretted it for one minute. Craig and Blake represent you and Echo Fine Properties, personally and professionally, incredibly well. They are both very pleasant and personable, thoughtful and caring, knowledgeable and extremely professional and gave very good advice and guidance. They were reliable, followed up when they said they would and were always accessible. They certainly made both processes of selling our house and buying our condo as easy and painless as possible. There is not one suggestion that we could make to improve your or their methods or styles. Thank you once again for everything you did on our behalf. It was a pleasure doing business with you all. Wishing you continued personal and professional success. Warmest regards, Linda & Mike Moran”
