Jumping Off a Cliff (with Ty Smith)
Play • 42 min

Ty Smith founded Exline Capital, a commercial real estate investment company, after experiencing many facets of the industry as a project manager, an analyst, a dealmaker, and even a ranch manager. Taking that experience and combining it with a desire to build something himself, Ty and Exline work with investors in what he calls the “middle market” in real estate’s four core food groups: office, industrial, multi-family, and retail. Ty initially built the company through one-off investments to build a track record, and in 2018, he pivoted to focus on fund management as the core business. Six years later, Exline has invested in projects exceeding $1.2 billion in multiple states. Listen as Ty shares how and why he started a business under strained circumstances and how finding your niche and staying the course can lead to achieving your ambitions.

Ty Smith, founder and Principal of Exline Capital, has experience in multiple areas of the commercial real estate industry including new construction development, historic redevelopment, public private partnerships, value-add acquisition and stabilized acquisition projects. Ty received his Master’s degree in Real Estate and Construction Management from The University of Denver and earned his Bachelor’s degree from Texas Christian University. Ty, his wife, Natalie, and their children live in Fredericksburg, Texas.
