Clients are saying:
"Tim is an outstanding advisor. He understood our needs as a family and stayed patient through an up-and-down process. We were selling and buying at the same time while in the midst of expecting our third child. Our process took longer than expected, but Tim stood by us all of the way through. I absolutely recommend him and his team. They work well together and Tim's high standard for communication is his best asset. Tim is creative, practical and attentive to each detail in the process."
"Tim helped my boyfriend and I close on our first property. We had a difficult transaction in the process because of the sellers but Tim was there every step of the way calling the sellers agent to get information for us answering the 1000 questions Id ask him everyday. And we were able to close successfully in less than 30 days! If I could recommend any real estate agent it would be him.
"Tim did a fantastic job of negotiating a sale and a purchase for us all in a single weekend. It was a flurry of activity that resulted in some additional negotiations on both deals to ensure that they both completed successfully and he was there to assist us every step of the way!"
"Tim is an even-keel, fast-action agent and I would recommend him to anyone. We used him as our agent to sell our condo in June 2017. We had some challenges with small sqf and no parking, and Tim still closed quickly, well-over the competitive average for the area.
We also used Tim to shop for a new home. My wife and I had our hearts set on a property...literally ready to dive in. Tim walked through and found multiple issues with the property we would have never noticed until it was too late. He knows what he’s looking for and will make sure you make informed decisions. House shopping is emotional, and he brings a very present sense of reason and practicality to the table.
He spent the next few weeks making appointments until we found the perfect home. He was able to negotiate a fair offer and a speedy close with his well-connected network of legal and finance partners....
If you see this - call Tim today. Be sure to ask about his legal and finance people too... they’re all stellar.
"My wife and I chose Tim as our realtor because of his extensive knowledge of the housing market trends in Chicago. Once we started our search, Tim made himself available for all questions (phone or email) and was quick to book showings at the multiple houses we were interested in viewing. While viewing houses, he gave us detailed information on the properties and if he didn't know something, he was quick to find the answer. He gave the right amount of advice. Meaning if something was not great or wrong, he'd let us know right away, but he also gave us time to digest a property and draw some of our own conclusions before he jumped in with his suggestions. Before we put an offer in on a house, Tim was very transparent in what the process would look like and gave us visual guides to follow if needed. Once we put an offer in on a house, Tim continued to support our everyday questions and gave us advice and constant updates. He had done a lot of research on the area and was able to help and advise us as we negotiated a fair price for the house we loved. Additionally, he was also incredibly helpful with finding an attorney and an inspector. Overall, we would highly recommend Tim to any of our friends and family. We couldn't be more happy in our new house!"
