Meet The Augusta Team

Tyson Schuetze » Founder of Auben Realty

After working nearly every job in every career field: paralegal, music journalist, US Census Bureau representative, Red Bull marketing member, and record label manager, Tyson eventually discovered he was unemployable.

Luckily, he eventually found his passion for transforming distressed houses into homes.

Along with Natalie Walls, Tyson founded Auben in its first location, Augusta, GA--on the wrong end of real estate bubble. Augusta has been good to him and it is where he met his future wife, Erin. They now have two daughters, and two rescue dogs. Surrounded by an amazing team of talented people, he is inspired daily to keep dreaming big, and improve neighborhoods one house at a time!

When he is not working, he constantly tries (and fails) to catch his wife, Erin, in his new endeavor, running. He is originally from Louisville, KY and has also called Denver, New York and Charleston, SC home.
