Team reviews

Timothy's team was great getting our house prepared to go on the market. He coordinated all the contractors and got all the repairs/remodeling done in just about a week, which was super fast considering what needed to be done!! His team was patient and accommodated all our requests. Timothy has his own movers which made it easy when we had to shift things a bit to accommodate the contractors and our schedule. Then the house was cleaned and beautifully staged and the garden was tidied up. It looks gorgeous now and I am so sad to move away!

Showed home in 2015 in Warm Springs, Sunol, CA 94539.
Primary point of contact: Lily Wang

I recently purchased a property from Timothy's agency. I was very impressed with how they staged the house and sent Timothy the following email--

"I am the buyer of the property at XXX recently listed by your agency. My family and I are very excited to become the new owners of this lovely house and look forward to our many years living there.

I am writing to ask for a huge favor if not too troublesome for you. I was impressed with the staging with the house which I thought had done a great job flattering the features of the house. I myself am not an expert in decoration and almost want to replicate exactly what the staging expert did. I know that this is probably beyond your scope of services, but just wonder if I could get a few tips from the staging expert where to get similar furniture and things to keep in mind while I decorate the home.

Thank you in advance for your time! BTW, it was a great pleasure working with Lily on your team throughout the process."

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Warm Springs, Sunol, CA 94539

Good local knowledge but he is over stretched. He is never available for comments or feedback or input. You are on your own after the first meeting. He never picks up phone. He just uses his name to get you in his pockets. Be very careful. Use other agents if possible.

Sold a home in 2014.

We used Timothy as our agent to sell our home. We found him to be an unethical agent - he is also not the broker of his own office. Will not even return calls as soon as you sign the listing agreement with him. Unqualified staff too and a lot of turnover in his office. Will never recommend him to anyone. Please feel free to write to me if you need any further details - glad to share.

Sold a home in 2014 in Downtown, Fremont, CA 94538.

Timothy recently sold our house in Fremont. And I should say we are overall quite happy with his services. Before we hired Timothy, we had interviewed couple of other real estate agents. Commission-wise he was in between. We hired him because he provides more services (like staging of the house, cleaning, moving etc.) and also because he seemed quite knowledgeable about the housing market and the real-estate business. He claimed his biggest talent was his negotiation skills. And he proved himself right. As my agent, he tried to make sure my interests were protected. Did everything go very smooth? No. The first offer that got accepted fell through as the buyer was not approved for the loan. But Timothy quickly found another buyer. But new issues came up related to further inspections and new Section 1 and Section 3 items even though the inspection contingency period had expired. Timothy dealt the situation to our satisfaction and finally brought the deal to a close. He is a fun person to work with and I would definitely recommend his services to anyone who wants to sell their property.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $2.075M in Mission Hills, Fremont, CA.

We recently sold our home in the Mission San Jose area and were fortunate to have Timothy as our real estate agent. He is very knowledgeable about real estate in general and the Mission area in particular. We decided to put our house on the market during a time when the market was cooling off, according to the other agents with whom we spoke. Timothy was not hesitant in the least and advised us to list at a price that was 10% higher than the other advice we received. When he touts his record of above asking sales, he is accomplishing this from a starting point of aggressive positioning. Timothy followed through with a full complement of supportive services. We had a complicated move process and he was very flexible with our requests and supportive of our needs. Our first offer was from an agent in his office. Timothy showed no preference to the offer and was very open with us in discussing it. When the offer fell through (strictly because of the buyers’ situation), Timothy quickly jumped into action to pursue other opportunities.

Timothy and his staff guided the final stage of the process in reaching closure on the escrow very smoothly and saw to it that we were protected from and compensated for the little bumps along the way.

Many thanks to Timothy and his team for a smooth process and a successful outcome!

Sold a home in 2014 in Warm Springs, Sunol, CA 94539.

I would highly recommend Timothy. Right from day one he made us feel comfortable about the whole process. He made the process for the sale of our condo really easy. He has a whole team who will review the house and suggest improvements that can get the best bang for the buck. We followed his teams suggestions and were able to get increased interest with 8 offers over our listing price. He also staged the house and cleaned it up for us as part of his offering. The house was on the market in a week after the upgrades were done, they were really professional, meticulous and fast in listing the property. The team is very responsive and available even though they are closing deals almost every day.

I honor his integrity as a seller's agent. There was an offer from one of his own agents but to be fair to everyone he had each offer presented to me by their agents in person. I had the chance to interview all the agents and then decide. There were slightly better offers than his agents and he suggested not to counter anyone's offer as there is one from his own agents and it wouldn't be fair to counter just theirs. At the end we were very happy with the offers as they were above our already heightened expectations. The contingency, escrow, and closing process also was handled very smoothly and we closed within 30 days.

Overall I would highly recommend Timothy and his team. I wish him and his team the very best.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.475M in Vineyards-Avalon, Fremont, CA.

Timothy recently sold our home of 21 years in Fremont and everything went smoothly. I dont give recommendations lightly but after the sale I sent all our friends in the area his contact information via email with our change of address in case they were considering selling their home. This is how confident I am that he would represent them well.

There are always questions and concerns in any large transaction and big change, but Timothy and staff were able to address everything in a timely manner. We had recently moved out of the area and therefore almost all of our interaction was over the phone and email. We met in person initially and he was very understanding and respectful about how emotionally attached I was to my home.

His included services far outweighed his competitors. His knowledge of the demographics and culture of the local market and what will attract them to your home. His services teams also reflect that knowledge. Additionally we did not have to be concerned about getting anything ready for listing or completing the sale, his team took care of everything, which not being local was very important to us. Our house sold in 12 days for more than asking.

The experience was as painless as it could be. I could concentrate of packing and moving vs transactional details which was very helpful. I would recommend Timothy to anyone wanting to buy or sell. Good luck

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.675M in Cameron Hills, Fremont, CA.

I wanted to take a moment to thank the Timothy Crofton team for the professional and prompt service you have provided us. This opportunity was made most pleasant with your expertise in dealing with the housing market. We appreciated Timothy's personable nature. Hilmis, as an escrow manager, you have the been the heart and soul of this deal, keeping everything together. I have really appreciated you coordinating all the appointments. Timothy, the services you provide for free such as staging, landscaping, cleaning and moving are all so appreciated and help to make the moving process easier. We also appreciated that you have a team of people who support you and support your clients. Thank you Crofton Team.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.425M in Mission Valley, Fremont, CA.

I will strongly recommend Timothy Crofton if you are trying to sell or buy your house. After living in Fremont for 24 years, we knew Timothy Crofton had good reputation so we decided to contact him when we decided to sell our house in Fremont.

We are very pleased that we contacted him. Our house was sold $100,000 over the list price a few days after the house was put on the market in June 2014. Before the house was listed on the market, Timothy Crofton's staff prepared our house nicely for the market. Timothy sent his team: interior designer, IT engineer, cleaning crews, gardeners and moving crews to prepare and stage our house for the market.

Again, I strongly recommend Timothy Crofton to anyone.
