Bought a home in 2009 in Cherry Hill, Baltimore, MD 21230.
I was a first time home buyer with very little exposure to the real estate industry. Tim took the time to thoroughly explain every step along the way and made the process as stress free as possible. I would recommend Tim to anyone looking to buy a new home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $575K in Baldwin, MD.
Tim represented my wife and me on the sale of our condo in Timonium and the purchase of our home in Baldwin. I would rate our experience with Tim as excellent. He is very knowledgeable of the market and, just as importantly to me, the tedious process involved in closing the deal. He was always able to answer our questions and provide valuable advice as we worked to close both of our transactions.
On the sale side Tim worked with us in listing the condo at a price that we were happy with and was also attractive to potential buyers and competitive with the existing market. The result was a quick sale at a price that we were thrilled with.
On the buy side Tim was excellent. He had his finger on the pulse of the market and was always available to take us out to see homes and talk us through the pros and cons of those homes. When we finally found the home we wanted Tim worked diligently negotiating the purchase (on a Friday night) so that the opportunity didn’t slip through our fingers.
Tim’s a good guy and a great agent and I would definitely recommend his services if you are looking to buy or sell a home.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2010 for approximately $275K in Riverside, Baltimore, MD.
Tim listed and sold our Federal Hill house in 20 days!...that was pretty much unheard of considering the market at the time. It was important to us that we sell our house quickly because 1) we wanted to look that much more attractive when putting in a contract on a new home and 2) we were expecting our first child in 4 months and wanted to be in our new home and settled before baby arrived. We achieved both with Tim's expertise!! Everything on the selling and buying end went so smoothly, we couldn't have been happier. We have already referred him to several of our friends who are either selling or buying. In fact, shortly after referring Tim to our friends, he successfully completed the sale of their condo and purchase of their new home!
Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $225K in Brewers Hill, Baltimore, MD.
I purchased my home in 2009 in Canton, Md with Tim's assistance. From the time I started looking to the time I put in an offer was exactly 3 months. The first few trips out were Tim's chance to learn more clearly what exactly it was that I was looking for and in a very short period after starting my search we honed in on the house I wanted.
It was my first home purchase and Tim was extremely helpful in guiding me through the entire process including providing me with a checklist of all of the items I should expect to happen or things that I would need to take care of prior to closing.
Tim was able to take what was listed as an "as-is" property and negotiate with the sellers to waterproof the basement at their expense prior to closing. He was also able to negotiate for my closing costs to be covered by the sellers.
I was so happy with the experience that I have recommended Tim and his team to 2 friends who have both purchased homes with him in the past 2 years.
I plan to use Tim and his expertise when it comes time to sell my current house and to assist in the purchase of my next one.
