Dan was the sellers agent, and even though that property didn't meet our needs or expectations we continued communication with one another. We eventually chose Dan as our agent to buy as well as sell our home due to his overall knowledge and personality.The most important aspect of selling our home were the strategies used. We agreed to put short and long term plans in place prior to listing our home. We didn't want the sale of our home to drag on for whatever reason. To prevent this from happening, specific time frames were put in place regarding reduction in price if at all needed, they were not.One of the main reasons my wife and I chose Dan was due to his personality. The last thing we wanted to deal with was an agent who thought they were more important than us, the buyer/seller.We are thankful to Dan for all of his support in both the buying and selling process."
He was super responsive and communicative (we were selling our dad's home from across the country). He had fantastic tradespeople at his disposal who were totally on (or under) budget and hit their deadlines. Not to mention the fact that when one contractor made an error they addressed it swiftly and at their own expense (I always say it is easy to look good when things are going well. The folks I want are the ones who look good when they aren't). And the real estate attorney he connected us to was a dream (went the extra mile to help my dad get the documents handled while under quarantine at a retirement facility during the COVID-19 outbreak. I couldn't recommend a better realtor and overall team. My very best home selling experience ever (and it is my 3rd).
Dan negotiated a great purchase price for me, which was critical given the extent of the renovations the property needed. Had he not done so, I would still be looking. And even though the cost of my purchase was far below that of the other properties Dan handles, I never felt like I was less important to him. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to both buyers and sellers."
Even though it took us a while, he represented us and your company with great patience, class and integrity. Many times he went out of his way to help with things that were absolutely not his job, I felt like I have a friend that’s trying to help me sell my house, not a real estate shark only looking at his financial gain. Thank you Dan!
Always there to talk through the process and made it painless. Also very connected and knowledgeable about the area and what works and what doesn't when buying and selling a home. Thank you."
The outcome of the sale is far above my expectation. This time, two offers were received within two days after placing the house on the market, and the sale was closed within 6 weeks with a good price.In comparison, when we moved to NJ two years ago, we tried to sell the same house with another realtor of high sale record. However, no offers were received in six months and house was rented eventually. Needless to say, the experience two years ago was disappointing.Facts are more than a thousand words. I have already recommended Dan Timm to my IL friends who are thinking of selling their houses at present."
Information was timely and helped us in our decisions. Fantastic photos and staging input.
He explained all the details of the transaction and kept us up to date with what was going on. We would definitely recommend him to others.
We felt he was very aware of the local market, worked well with other realtors, clients, and appraisers. We felt that whatever came our way, Dan would take care of it.
Dan was a pleasure to work with personally and professionally. He was always in control of the process with a smile on his face.When we had to engage with the wider staff of Century 21 Kreuser & Seiler, Ltd, it was equally excellent. They were always well informed with the specifics of our situation and requirements of the engagement.We highly recommend Dan Timm and the office of Century 21 Kreuser & Seiler, Ltd for your home sale or home purchase."
It was a challenging sale insofar as the house was circa 1972 and had very little updating following construction. Dan's knowledge of the market was invaluable in arriving at an appropriate listing price. And after a troublesome inspection and the attendant complaints/demands, it looked like the deal might be dead. However, Dan stuck with it and helped negotiate a restructuring of the contract that permitted the sale to move forward. Moreover, he was totally on top of the contractor piece, offering his recommendations for painters, drywall experts, insulation contractors, radon remediation, etc. Dan did yeoman's work on the sale during what was a very difficult time for the family -- our Mother passed away a week before the sale. If you're looking to sell or buy a piece of property in Libertyville or the near environs, you could not do better than retaining Dan as your agent.
His expertise of the business is the reason our house sold in a month, while other houses near us have been listed for months. We are so grateful that we called him.
Dan is not only a highly qualified real estate professional with the highest integrity, he is also a wonderful person. In short, I was grateful to find and work with Dan and would highly recommend his services as a real estate professional.
Always able to answer questions. Very knowledgeable. If you asked him to follow up on an item, he would do so in a timely manner.Very professional. Very approachable. Always working to please his clients.Positive! Upbeat! Gives honest feedback!"
His market analysis was spot on, and his experience and relationships in his professional community were great assets to us. We also had not moved in many years, and the marketing has changed significantly in that time. He walked us through what we needed to do, and what to expect during the process.
My prior experience with him was excellent, so I didn't have to think twice about calling on him again.I didn't really have to spend much time thinking about the sale of my home. It was all handled quickly and efficiently, allowing me to focus my time and energy on the renovations of the home I had purchased."
Above all else, we were given outstanding care all the way through the transaction. Thank you!
He knew the market and the neighborhoods and priced our home to sell (which it did in 2 weeks). Any time we encountered an issue, he talked us through it, knew exactly who to call, made the call himself, and expedited the resolution. His optimism and extensive experience helped guide us through our first home sale in 42 years. We would enthusiastically recommend Dan to anyone contemplating a move. He was a gem. Joan and Jim Sayre
I appreciate that Dan is not afraid of a challenge or hard work.He has worked thru and problem solved many issues to complete the sale."
It was very helpful to have fresh eyes. He also made comparisons to other sales with and without upgrades. He brought in an electrician and a handyman to make suggestions. Their ideas were good, though we didn't do all of them, their work was high-quality, and their prices reasonable. It was really convenient to have Dan's guys doing the upgrades. We have just built a house, so we are familiar with prices for trades and we were really pleased with the quotes. All work was done on time and on budget, too.Again, nothing but top marks. Dan was out of town in the mountains when we got our offer, but he kept communicating as cell coverage allowed and everything worked really quickly.Dan was very helpful in every stage of the process, including with prepping the house, setting a price (and then adjusting it upward after the work was done), appearing for the inspecition and working with the potential buyers.Sold our house in 24 hours, closing in 4 weeks, for more than we expected to get. Hard to think of anything to complain about under those circumstances."
We have over the past 43 years we have bought and sold 13 homes in four different states and have worked with a variety of agents agents and brokers. Our experience with Dan puts him at the top of the list . Dans professionalism plus his integrity and strong desire to ensure the client has a positive e perience and result are a rare thing today. If we could clone him and transport him to Oregon where we have another property to sell we would . Dan is exceptional at what he does and property price range does not change how he served his customer.We are very satisfied with Dan. We had the same experience selling that we experienced when he helped up purchase the townhome"
I would recommend Dan to anyone looking to get the local property knowledge combined with in-depth realty experience.
Dan is very knowledgeable of the the Libertyville/Green Oaks area as well as the current market of the area. We received several offers which Dan knew were below the minimum we wanted to accept. Dan provided comments and guidance in managing the offers, which was appreciated. When appropropriate offer was presented he provided guidance in moving toward accepting the offer. We had multiple objectives in selling our home which we fortunately achieved. Dan knew our objectives and was instrumental in us meeting our objectives. Dan was a pleasure to deal with through out the process. THANK YOU DAN !"
He took care of everything which was especially appreciated as we had to move out of the area while the house was on the market. We strongly recommend Dan.
She was so supportive and patient and we could tell she was truly passionate about finding the right home for us. We couldn’t be happier with the whole process and would recommend B & W to anyone looking for a home or trying to sell their home.
He brought great expertise to our real estate sale and purchase. He was always on top of what was happening with both transactions taking care of problems and offering great advice. He was a pleasure to work with.
He did an excellent job of marketing our condo and got us a good price for our condo.
