A native Texan, Tucker Haynes is active all over the Hill Country community, having attended John Newcombe Tennis Academy, Schreiner University, and Texas Lutheran University.
The Kuper Sotheby's International Realty agent has a strong work ethic that's focused on service, honesty, and integrity. He takes a proactive approach to real estate services, addressing his clients' needs by inviting questions and discussion and helping them to consider diverse perspectives and alternative options.

Well known for his conservation activities, Haynes is an avid outdoorsman who spends his free time driving the Texas highways. He has explored, hunted, and fished across all parts of the great state of Texas. That expertise means that he doesn't just focus on residential properties, but also lake getaways, hunting ranches, family vacation homes, corporate retreats, and investment properties.
We chatted with Haynes to find out more about his work and what drives him.
CultureMap: What inspires you to do what you do?
Tucker Haynes: Find the best fit and deal for clients, as cliché as it is, and being able to educate them throughout the process and the many ways they can get the property they dream of.
CM: What's one piece of advice you'd give to people looking for their dream home?
TH: Use the 80/20 rule. Without going the full custom building route, it is very unlikely you will find that perfect place that matches your list of needs and desires. Have an agent who's either well connected to subcontractors or well informed on how to renovate.
CM: And advice to those who are selling?
TH: Price appropriately, use excellent photography, and have the home be show-ready.
CM: Sum up San Antonio in three words.
TH: San Antonio: Spurs, Rodeo, Fiesta! New Braunfels: lake/river, beer, sausage.
CM: What do you consider your "special skill"?
TH: Being able to transcend most demographics, be it elderly, wealthy, first-time buyers, etc. and understand needs/wants and how to make it all come together.
CM: What's one thing people might not know about you?
TH: I have traveled to 40-plus UN-recognized nations. I compete in barbecue cook-offs on a semi-regular basis, and I'm a big tennis guy.
CM: Finish the sentence: "It's a good day when..."
TH: Luck meets preparation.
