CNE - Broker
Being a lifelong Chicago resident helps Tim offer excellent knowledge of the Chicago market and its many neighborhoods. Tim not only is selling the home, he is selling the lifestyle that comes with living in the neighborhood. After growing up in Barrington, his first residence in the city was a rooftop apartment in left field across from Wrigley Field. He owns an investment condo and is a founding board member at his 95-unit, loft-conversion building in Bucktown. Tim has resided in high-end contemporary homes in River North, but really enjoys the flexibility and openness of loft-space living in the West Loop. "It's so exciting to see the changes that are taking place in the West Loop every single day."
After being rookie of the year at the largest real estate office in Chicago, Tim joined @properties in 2007, helping them become Chicago's #1 real estate brokerage firm. This change was due to state of the art technology, as well as the aggressive and cutting-edge marketing tools. "My buyers and sellers have benefited greatly from this move, and I have never looked back. My clients are always my first priority," said Tim. "I keep the communication lines always open and have a team of qualified lenders, attorneys, and inspectors to support the process. I want this journey to be enjoyable and stress-free for you."
After graduating from Indiana University with a finance degree, Tim traveled globally while also working in sales. This has provided him with extensive experience in selling and strong negotiation skills. Tim continued his education by getting a CNE designation (Certified Negotiation Expert).
When Tim has spare time, he enjoys playing golf and shooting pictures while he continues to travel around the world. Someday he hopes it becomes easier to get to Antarctica so that he can say he has visited all 7 continents. His latest endeavor has been working alongside his wife Sarah as she continues to paint amazing abstract art. They started a gallery Sarah Raskey Fine Art where she displays and sells her work by appointment only.

Clients are saying:
"Tim was very personable and efficient. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to refer him to a friend or family member. He is extremely professional and knowledgable. Tim made the whole buying and selling process much easier for us. I couldn't have been more pleased with who we chose to represent us on the buying and selling of our homes."
"I did not know anyone who directly worked with Tim before I contacted him but I knew of him through mail advertisement and also heard his name randomly in my building. Despite not having a personal recommendation, I could not have been more pleased with the service he provided. He was prompt, professional, provided good communication, and did many showings in a short amount of time. He found a renter in 10 days and exceeded the listing price. After finding the renter, he promptly got all the paperwork together and the process was very smooth. He quickly responded to phone calls/ texts, even after he received his compensation. I would highly recommend Tim to a friend or anyone whom is interested in finding a broker. He was great to work with and I could not be happier."
"Tim was very knowledgeable, and accessible throughout my experience from our first meeting to the signing of documents. He has also made himself available with his contacts now, in addition to the future, if I need help with any matter, from needing a plumber to offering the name of a locksmith."
"My sister-in-law recommended Tim Manning to us. Upon meeting him, we were immediately impressed! He showed us Chicago properties for about two years. This could not have been an easy task, as we lived out of town, were rarely available for showings, and weren't really sure what we wanted. He never lost his patience with us, even when we wanted to give up the search. His knowledge of the city was greatly appreciated. He was confident but never arrogant or pushy, a true professional. Our new home is a dream come true. It has everything we wanted, including the best view in the city. And we owe it all to him."
"Tim was amazing to work with. He always kept me up to date and provided helpful feedback towards the sale of my place. I highly recommend Tim and would use him again. Thanks again for all your hard work."
