When we decided to formally start our house hunt, we wanted to make sure we had an agent who knew both Philadelphia neighborhoods and the surrounding communities because we weren't quite sure where we wanted to settle. We also wanted an agent who would be in for the long haul- we were looking for our "forever" house, and we weren't going to settle until we found what we wanted. Tim was recommended by friends who took almost a year to find houses, both in and out of the city. As soon as we met him, we knew he would help us find the right place. He was very encouraging throughout the entire process, always providing thorough insight and honest feedback on the many houses we saw. He never pushed us out of our comfort zone. But when we did step out of it, he knew it was for the right reasons: we had finally found the right home. His guidance during the entire home buying process was invaluable. I don't know that we could have purchased the home we did, at the price we did, without his help.
