Will Tiller, Principal

Prior to working with Borges Brooks, Will obtained his real estate license in 2012. In addition, he’s been a real estate investor and developer since the early 2000’s. He started his career in 1995 when he started Premier Media Technologies, a home automation AV company, which he sold in 2012.

Tyler Whann

Tyler Whann and his wife Lisa have built, designed, and furnished numerous primary residences in Dallas, Texas, over the past 20 years where they currently reside. In addition, they have built, furnished, and designed secondary homes in Watercolor, Hawaii, and Costa Rica. As a result, they have a clear understanding of the entire building, design, and furnishing process from start to finish, along with the high level of expectations required from a client perspective.

Previously, Tyler received his Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Southern Methodist University (S.M.U.) in 1993. In 1994, he started an auto finance business from the ground-up with several friends from S.M.U. Over the course of 12 years, Tyler and his partners were able to grow Drive Financial Services to become one of the nation’s largest privately held subprime auto lending companies. He exited the company in late 2005, and then it sold in late 2006 to one of the world’s largest banks. It is currently publicly traded on the NYSE.

Since exiting the company, he has been involved in private equity investing, and has served on the board and been actively involved in several Christian non-profit organizations. In addition, he and Lisa started Heritage School of Texas in 2011, a non-profit Christian school for kids with learning disabilities.

Lisa Whann

Lisa Whann has a keen eye for unique and tasteful residential design, not only from an architectural standpoint, but also in the selection of cohesive furnishings. This is evidenced by the numerous homes she and her husband have designed, built, and furnished, many of which have been featured in publications.

Previously, Lisa received her Bachelor of Business Administration degree and Sociology degree from University of Texas at Dallas in 2001. She put her business degree to work shortly after graduating to start The Threaded Needle out of her home.

In January of 2002, she became a full-time home manager after delivering her first child, Olivia. Campbell soon followed in 2003, Connor in 2005, and Georgia in 2007. She quickly became an advocate for children with Apraxia and a resource to parents after one of her children was diagnosed with the disability a few years after birth. She quickly realized that the traditional educational environment, public and private, was not conducive for remediation of the disability. Recognizing this gap in the educational system, she and her husband, Tyler, were led to start Heritage School of Texas, the first Classically influenced Christian School for kids with learning disabilities in the DFW metroplex, in 2011.

She has also been actively involved in various ministries at Watermark Community Church since its inception in 1999, along with a number of other Christian ministries in Dallas.
