Recommended through my personal network, he performed to an excellent standard. I purchased a home sight unseen and he was very effective in relaying details of the property. I am continuing to work with Tim and will be purchasing through him in the future. He did an excellent job of protecting my interests as a purchaser.
.. This is guy. Yeah! Tim was an absolute riot to work with in purchasing my home. He was patient going through a bunch of walk throughs but was dead set on finding the home I wanted, it was like Sherlock Holmes meets Jack Bauer. Just when we thought we were walking away from a home, he was able to pull the information that we needed out of nowhere to move forward, it was very David Copperfield-ish. He always worked with my crazy work schedule and dressed to impress(you'll see). Tim's professional honesty and communication was always appreciated and was what made it known I was working with the right person to find my home. The intangibles are always great, but it was accompanied with someone who knows his business market at the same time.
I knew I wanted to sell my house, but wasn't quite ready to do so. That didnt keep Tim from checking in every so often to see if we had any questions or if their was anything he could do for us to help with getting the house ready to sell. When I finally did decide that I was ready to sell(about a year later), Tim came and assessed our house, showed us what other similar houses to ours were going for on the market, showed us their marketing strategy, and much more. Thanks to their outstanding marketing, within 1 week of our house being on the market we received 3 showings and 2 had put offers in. Tim then laid out both offers in a way that made it easy for us to understand the pros and cons of each. A coin was flipped and I had chosen my offer. Finally, Tim stuck with me until the end. From getting arrangements together for repairs, to weekly check in calls to make sure everything was still going smoothly, to being there at closing (unlike our realtor who helped us purchase the house). Tim is very professional and excellent at what he does. I most definitely will be choosing him again when I buy another home for me and my family.
I walked into an open house without any intention of buying just to see what the market was like when I met Tim. From there, his upfront honesty and knowledge turned me from a prospective buyer to an actual buyer. He sat down with me and explained the market and finances behind it all without ever rushing me throughout the process for me to sign anything. From there, his connections expedited the home buying process, without insulting the seller leaving the property an option in the event you are willing to pay its actual fair market value. Additionally, during the process, his skilled recommendation to go through a banker netted lower rates from many competitors. From finding the right property, his skilled negotiation to get on contract, and finally getting to closing, he stayed on top of everything. Don't waste your time with realtors who aren't proactive, aren't looking out for your best interest, unreliable, or just outright lazy. If you are looking for one of the best realtors in the market you need Tim. You'll know you had a good experience and when you are at closing and he gives you a little welcome surprise. Looking back through the process you'll never have to think of any what-ifs. Pros: - Extremely personable - Honest (almost brutally) - Tactful - Prompt - Knowledgeable - Patient - Professional background - Strong personal connections - Dedication Cons: - Didn't meet him sooner to buy a house while the rates were still great. If you need a great HONEST realtor, he's right here. Even if you are just a prospective buyer, I highly recommend talking to Tim, the sheer amount of knowledge he has will benefit you in the long run. Thanks, Tim!
Cant find a better agent to partner with,
Tim maintained his patience as the weeks went on and in the end helped me secure a great deal on an amazing house! I recommend Tim to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the future!
My wife actually met him at an open house a couple years ago when we first moved to the area and were conducting our research. They connected immediately and we knew Tim was going to be our agent when the time came for us to seriously look and buy a house. We heard from Tim periodically from time to time, especially around the holidays. His customer service even before we were customers was outstanding! One aspect that sold us on Tim and his ERA Realtor team is the commitment to veterans with a donation from each sale. Being retired military, this convinced me to go with Tim and his team and I was not disappointed. It took us a couple of years, but we were ready to buy at the beginning of the year. Between Tim and my wife they knew the neighborhoods and we soon found a house to submit a bid. We knew it would be a contingency bid, but it was good to complete the process. Unfortunately, the bid was not considered because of the previous bid on the house so we continued our search. Within days, we found our dream house, Tim showed it to us and we were placing a bid that day! We now own it! Tim might have been "Our Realtor" for almost three years, but when we were ready at the first of the year, he helped us close on 28 February. Everything worked out with the timing, the ending of our current lease and the purchase of our new house! The assistance Tim provided was immeasurable. The bid we submitted was a fair bid. The counter offer was only a couple thousand dollars away from our offer, it was not hard to accept and rejoice. I give Tim and his team my strongest recommendation. True professionals who know their business and treat you more like family than just another customer. Tim you ROCK!
Then when he contacted me he was extremely helpful and actually very reassuring in his professionalism. I would give Tim Whittemore 10 stars if your program allowed and both you and he can rest assured I will be referring any and all to Mr. Whittemore
