Ryan Nickell

  • Ryan showed me homes

      Ryan is very communicative and responsive any time I have real estate investing questions. He has shared multiple strategies for how to re-invest after selling my properties. From tax deferred, to tax free options, he has a network of resources including financial advisors, CPAs, and his business parter is an attorney as well. Ryan sells Santa Clara homes faster than anyone I know. He is one of the best realtors in all of Santa Clara county -- with a global leverage partner team for marketing properties to the international audience. I highly recommend working with one of the best real estate agents, esp in San Jose and Santa Clara.

    • Ryan helped me buy a home

        Tim and Ryan are by far the best real estate agents whom I have worked with. They are extremely knowledgeable about the area and very responsive to all my inquiries. Since we were new to the area, they spent a lot of time to show us different neighborhoods and understand my family's preferences. They are not only agents but trusted friends. They talked us out of a few houses when we were about to make some irrational decisions. They helped us win the bidding without overpaying. Ryan even drove 1.5 hours each way to hand deliver the closing documents so we could close on time. They also helped us throughout the remodel process! Look no further when you need an excellent agent in the Santa Clara county!

      • Ryan helped me buy a home

          My husband and I were overwhelmed as we began the homebuying process for our first home in CA. We had met with another realtor team, and although the experience was fine, we just still felt uneasy. All of that changed when we connected with Ryan and Tim. The first time I called, it was unscheduled, and Tim spent an hour on the phone with me out of his busy day going over all of my questions in detail, never rushing me, and offering sound guidance without being pushy. Once we began looking at houses with Ryan, it was the same great experience. His enthusiasm for the real estate industry is evident, and he made sure to share his passion with us. We were ready to move fast, and Ryan made it happen. We saw numerous houses in one weekend - some that we wanted to see, and others that he recommended - and learned so much. He consistently brought house below our budget, and we ended up buying one well below what we expected to spend. Ryan had a clear strategy when it came to making our offer, he was quick to connect with the selling agent, even when we weren't certain were were going to make an offer, and he ensured that offer stood out and was strategically presented to give us the edge. It worked! We found the perfect home after only a week, and we are still amazed at how quickly Ryan brought it all together. He stuck with us through the entire closing process, and made sure everything moved smoothly. Home-buying can be so stressful, but honestly - it was incredibly easy with Ryan and Tim guiding our process. When we are ready for our next home, there is no question that we will ask Ryan and Tim to take care of that one, too. They are both outstanding!

        • Ryan was a pleasure to work with. He's professional, knowledgeable, and very positive. Additionally, he has a really great team that he works with to get everything processed quickly and reliably. He made our home selling experience go smoothly and we learned a ton of general industry knowledge through all of our interactions with him. I appreciate how proactive he is and how creative and innovative he is compared to others in his industry. I would easily recommend him to friends and family.

        • Ryan is a superstar broker. We bought our house in Silicon Valley only after the third bid during this market conditions and the preference of all sellers for the cash offer. Ryan was honest and very strategic with us. We ended up securing an all-cash offer, which turned out to be lower than the competing financing offers. Thank you so much for this Ryan! The coordination and smoothness of the process were superb, and we look forward to working with you again

          - Alexey Shmelev via Zillow
        • I went with Tim & Ryan on recommendation from my relatives and fortunate enough to buy my first home with very first offer. Ryan reviewed and provided inputs on several of the Zillow listings and ensured it met my requirements. Although I had only one showing, Ryan & his team were diligent throughout the process from setting up showing, to putting in the offer and getting the home closed on time. The home had tenant at time we put in the offer and Ryan followed up to ensures that tenant had vacated before closing. I would certainly recommend working with Tim & Ryan for clear communication and diligent work in real estate projects.

          - PrasadIyengar via Zillow
        • Ryan Nickell thrives in maintaining meaningful, everlasting bonds, whether with his colleagues or those who utilize his expertise in the real estate industry . His passion and drive far exceed his peers, for his concern pertaining to each and every client takes into consideration their timeline, their budget, their dreams. He is fully cognizant about how being a genuine "servant" will provide for the most positive outcome for all parties involved.

          - neepyjade via Zillow
        • Ryan was enthusiastic and it showed that he loves what he does. Did an incredible job selling my house and took care of everything. I was very pleased with his work and I would recommend him.

          - patrzykontm via Zillow
        • Ryan is awesome! He is very professional, and extremely attentive to your likes and dislikes during your home search. He always does his research on the properties you are interested in. At every showing, he arrives before you and makes a list of Pros and cons of each property, and answers all your questions. When it comes to putting an offer, he knows exactly what the seller is looking for, in order to win the bid. We would not have been able to purchase a home this year, if it wasn't for Ryan & Tim. Thanks guys!

        • Before working with Ryan, We talked with a few other agents. We are not satisfied with any of them. Then we met Ryan. He and his team are very professional and responsive. He provided a lot of insights about the whole market, the houses we want to buy, remodeling, etc. He has always been supportive, available. I appreciated all his work and his expertise.We definitely will work with him again when we want to buy another house in the future.

          - aaron_coder via Zillow
        • I could not have asked for a better realtor experience than I got working with Ryan and his team! During my initial conversation with Ryan, I explained that my goal was to maximize my ROI on the property and that I was willing to invest in improvements that could help with that goal. Ryan walked me through comps for other houses in my neighborhood and helped level set what he thought the house could command from buyers, given current market conditions. After we entered into a relationship, Ryan's team sprang into action! He did some initial visits to my house with his designer to get a feel for the property and take inventory of the work we would need to do to maximize ROI. With Ryan, you are not just getting a kickass realtor but also an entire network of capable and affordable professionals. Whether I needed contractors, landscapers, or handymen, Ryan always had someone he could call to get the job done! The results were nothing short of amazing! The house sold in record time in just a few days- Ryan kept in on the market long enough for the tons of buyers we attracted to see it. It ultimately received 31 offers and set a neighborhood record by a long shot, commanding a sale price above comparable homes in the neighborhood with more square footage and a record $1,000 per square foot! We had two appraisals before going to market and we got more than a quarter-million higher than both! I was juggling multiple life changes during this time, but Ryan made the whole experience easy and stress-free. He was always available to answer questions and brainstorm, and he felt like a true partner throughout the process. Thanks for everything, Ryan! #ROI

        • I connected with Ryan through my sister who recently bought a house. Ryan helped me to buy my condo. I am very happy with it. He is professional. He guided me through all the details that I need to focus on in process. Answered all the questions that I had. Smooth transaction and pleasant experience. I defiantly will recommend Ryan to my friends and colleges.

          - Dmytro Boltenko via Zillow
        • Ryan has a comprehensive and effective strategy for maximizing returns on home sales. He helped us understand the market, his process and the preparation required to get our home ready for sale. Ryan coordinated and managed each and every step for us. He also understood and supported our specific needs throughout the process. We were very pleased with the professionalism and experience of his team from a design, remodeling and marketing perspective and are extremely satisfied with the sale price that we achieved.

          - cmolho37 via Zillow
        • Ryan accomplished everything we wanted in the limited timeframe we created. I would definitely recommend Ryan for your real estate needs. Very easy to work with and very knowledgeable. We are very happy with his work.

          - peglukas via Zillow
        • Absolutely amazing experience! We were lucky to have connected with Ryan. It's been a great journey working with him. He has always been supportive, available and helpful throughout. We were able to connect very well with him. After initial few meetings, he was able to read our minds in regards to our likes and dislikes :) It was like having another us, helping us decide what we want! We would go to him with the listings we like and he would share his accurately valuable expert advise, helping us save time in choosing. He was always patient and attentive in all our meetings. He ensured our applications were always perfect and on time. Words would probably be less to express our excellent journey with Ryan! If wasn't for him, we would still not be proud homeowners! But for those reading this, be rest assured that with Ryan you are with THE best!

        • Ryan is very professional. He gathers all your requirements and make your purchase a pleasant experience.He is very patient and gives you all the information.

        • Ive known Ryan for 15 years. I recently worked with him to buy my first house. If it wasnt for him Im not sure we wouldve had our offer accepted. He is an expert on getting the VA loan accepted in the Bay Area market. His friendly personality is an asset for building relationships with other agents.

          - nickksiazek via Zillow
        • My family worked with Ryan on purchasing our first home. We've been searching for a home for almost a year with no particular luck, then we decided to reach out to Ryan and Tim for help - a couple of weeks later we bought a home (on our first attempt). I'd like to point out Ryan's exceptional negotiation skills - he knows how to strategically present your offer and convince sellers to pick you. Tim was very helpful answering legal questions that we had as well as providing his expert opinions on pros and cons of the houses we looked at. Another thing we appreciated is that Tim and Ryan have experience working both with sellers and buyers, which means that they know the process from both sides and could point out things you should focus on (whether you are buyer or seller).The home buying process in such a competitive market as Bay Area could be stressful (especially for the first time home buyers), Ryan made the entire process look like a breeze.

          - evgenygrigorevsky via Zillow
        • We worked with Ryan for several months trying to find and purchase our first home. Ryan expertly helped us navigate the difficult process of house hunting even during the pandemic when open houses were not a luxury we had available to us. Ryan is super responsive and jumped through all sorts of hoops to help get us a home we really wanted for a very good price. We will definitely be looking to work with Ryan again in the future, and we will be recommending him to our family and friends.

          - RazvanBangu via Zillow
        • I contacted Ryan regarding a house which was a probate sale . His response was prompt and explained to me very clearing regarding the process . the pros and cons of the property and also the probate process . Really impressed with his honesty !!!

          - kalyan kankipati via Zillow
        • Ryan Nickell is legitimately the best realtor I have ever worked with. My family and I aren't entirely new to the real estate game, so we've dealt with a couple real estate agents in the past, but since working with Ryan, I don't see how we could ever work with anyone else again because the bar is now set at an incredible level. Let me just say that buying a house in 2021 is no joke and if you are in the position to be looking, consider yourself extremely lucky. The market is insane! Throughout the whole process though, Ryan put my family and I at ease. In addition to the crazy market conditions, I had planned to use my VA loan for the home purchase. In such a hot market, most realtors try to steer veterans away from using this amazing benefit that they've earned. Ryan and his team are super knowledgeable about the ins and outs of the VA loan process and thanks to his network, we were able to do a 21 DAY CLOSE WITH A VA LOAN on a property that had some section 1 damage. We even got to move up the close date from the initial expectation. Even after closing, Ryan opened up his network to us for one of the best general electricians in the area who rewired the whole house and made modifications and completed it all before our original close date! I have friends who've made offers on almost a dozen houses before finally getting accepted. My wife and I were prepared for the long haul going into this adventure, but thanks to Ryan with his market expertise and negotiation skills, the second house we made an offer on got accepted, and we weren't even the top offer.My family and I can't thank Ryan, our real estate coach (as I like to think of him), enough for helping us to find our forever-home and we want to spread the word through this review so others can benefit as well. Good luck and happy house hunting.

        • Ryan is not only effective but an ideal partner in finding the right home. He was very patient and forthright on what it would take to close in this competitive market. If youre looking for a closer, look no further.

          - zuser20160704173035322 via Zillow
        • Ryan sold my house at the local record price. He handled every details of the process with highly professionalism so that I've been worry-free throughout. His broad local knowledge, extensive experience and outstanding negotiation skills definitely qualify him to be the top agent!

          - huyuande2017 via Zillow
        • Ryan Nickell, my real estate agent who helped me purchase my first home, was a partner who I would recommend to anyone looking to buy a house. If I could give him a higher rating than 5 out of 5 stars, I would do it in a heartbeat.Throughout the entire process, I felt supported in every way I could have asked for; and especially want to highlight the response time/availability Ryan had for me and the genuine desire to help me find the best home for me. Ryan was always readily available for questions and tours, proactively provided listings that matched my search criteria, and making offers on any property I was interested in; but I never felt any pressure to rush a decision, offer on a property I was not in love with, or over offer to boost any commission. Whenever I found a house listing online, Ryan quickly responded and was able to get me into the house at my first availability. Ryan recognizes the competitive and time-sensitive nature of the house market in the Bay Area and made every effort to ensure that I had the opportunities to see and offer on any house that caught my attention. Additionally, throughout this effort, at no point did I ever feel rushed or pressured into anything. Ryan also remained readily in contact and engaged with me all throughout escrow and the closing process; at every point during of my home search and buying process, I felt supported by Ryan and truly felt I had someone on my team representing my best interests.Altogether, Ryan Nickell made my first home purchase as easy and smooth as I could have ever hoped for; and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy a new home.

          - elementalwolf3 via Zillow
        • Ryan is the consummate professional. He is knowledgeable, personable, efficient, and very responsive. He is an absolute joy to work with.He saved me a lot of time because he understood exactly the type of house and price range that I was looking for.

          - barbara ash9 via Zillow
        • Working with Ryan was amazing. I went from my first conversation to him to signed purchase agreement in a week. He went to bat when we hit road bumps in the closing process and made sure we got the deal done! I'll 100% choose Ryan on my next purchase or sale!

          - ianmurphycameron9 via Zillow
        • This is the second time Ive worked with Ryan. I bought a house with him in 2017, and I recently sold the same house. The more I work with him, the more clear it is how good he is compared to other agents Ive worked with. On the buy side, he is able to point out homes that may not look like much, but have a lot of potential. On the sell side, we went through a list of low cost home improvements and marketing techniques which have a strong track record for bringing great ROI and I went with all of them. I had my doubts in the beginning, but I trusted the process and it paid off big time with the house selling more than 100k over my dream price for the home. Now Im working with him to buy once more and again were looking for homes that *dont* have the same low cost, high ROI improvements we made when selling my home because I trust those homes are going to sell at a lower price.

          - Brad Procopio via Zillow
        • A friend of ours suggested Tim and Ryan, to help us buy our first home in the crazy SF bay area. We did meet other realtors but were never completely sure with them. We had an excellent experience with Tim and Ryan and would definitely recommend them to friends.Ryan was super responsive, knowledgeable, was always available throughout the process. He is just so passionate, enthusiastic and informed about the real estate market that it definitely shows in his work. They were never pushy, always listened and made sure everything was crystal clear during the entire process and helped us make a good decision.Ryan looked at different neighborhoods all across the bay area with us over 2 weekends and helped us zero in on our desired ones. We were ready to move quickly and Ryan was always on top of things and had an open line of communication with the seller agents of the properties we were interested in. He also made sure our offer had an edge to make us stand apart from other offers. Don't think we would have found our new home within a month, if not for Ryan.

          - purushdhanraj via Zillow
        • Apart from being a Navy grad (Go Army!), Ryan far exceeded our expectations of what a real estate agent does for their clients. Countless late night video chats, 1000's of text messages, being a constant sounding board for remodeling ideas ... He helped us through it all! Sole reason we got into a beautiful home in record time in this crazy bay area market. I will definitely be recommending Ryan (and of course Tim) to all my friends looking to buy in the area. If you're reading this, reach out to him. You won't regret it!

          - zuser20140630020007923 via Zillow
        • Ryan has completely surpassed our expectations for what a real estate agent should be. He spent quality time to walk us through every step of the home buying process. His endless knowledge and experience were incredibly helpful when negotiating with lenders to negotiating price. He is a true professional, has great frequent communication, and is full of advice which helped navigate the bay area market. We'll be recommending Ryan to everyone we know.

          - Billy McKee via Zillow
        • 10/10 for being genuine, knowledgeable, honest and always approachable. As a first time home buyer we had no clue where to start and what are the key things to consider. Ryan has been a trustworthy realtor to begin with. He was super responsive and answered our questions and patiently guided us through the entire process. He is knowledgable and understands the market conditions very well. It was not an easy decision but he made sure we were comfortable, was never pushy and presented the facts so that we make an informed decision. He was always on top of things to make sure we get what we wanted. He was always ready to listen to any queries and handled every aspect of the process very professionally. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for their next dream home.

        • I just got new house because of Ryan NickellHe is very professional and very supportive especially, he provide very fast feedback And also he has deep knowledge about this industry and very good negotiator. That's why i was so happy to work with him.

          - Alex Chang via Zillow
        • Ryan was a wonderful realtor who helped me buy my first home. He had an excellent understanding of the home buying process and helped guide us through it. Due to his strong negotiation skills, we were able to purchase our house below asking and below the appraisal value. Even after closing, he still assisted us when we encountered an issue with our seller. Ryan has my highest endorsement.

          - chriskchau10 via Zillow
        • Ryan was very helpful and transparent in explaining the home buying process. This was extremely helpful especially since it was our first home.During closing, we worked with a difficult seller and there were many obstacles we needed to get through. However, Ryan was there every step of the way; providing support and working with me through the process and now Im a proud homeowner. Thanks Ryan!

          - Eric Rosales via Zillow
        • Ryan was extremely thorough and helpful throughout this daunting process. I never felt like I was in the dark on anything, and he gave insightful advice and explained each and every decision point and step. There were multiple, highly competitive offers for the home, but I am convinced Ryan's advocacy and professionalism made the difference in convincing the seller to work with us. A true pro.

          - Harry_A via Zillow
        • Ryan was a pleasure to work with, very energetic and knowledgeable about the Market. Knows what clients are looking for, and the trends in a ready to move in house. We were skeptical at first, but once we saw the final results of our remodel home. We were very pleased, and we also received a lot of compliments. The stager/decorators were also on board, they were on point of the color theme, and the trends for this year. We put our house on the Market on a Friday with scheduled appts, and by Monday we rcvd 10 great offers, which we excepted. Only took 25 dys to close. Which was Awesome ! Now on to our new chapter ....Thanks Ryan

        • I'm not one who usually takes the time to write reviews, but I'm making the exception for Ryan Nickell. He made the entire experience of purchasing my first home less stressful and more informed than I could have imagined. Everything from his amazingly friendly demeanor, him genuinely wanting to find you something you're comfortable with, his deep knowledge of the buyer/seller market mindset, and willingness to recommend his own personal network of contractors was phenomenal. He constantly took the time and effort to check-in on how things were going, both business-wise as well as personally, and I appreciated his attentive support throughout the entire process. If you're looking for someone you can trust to tell you things straight and to help you make informed decisions, look no farther than Ryan!

        • Ryan and Tim helped my family find our dream home in the Bay Area and enabled a smooth transaction from virtual open house to closing.They went above and beyond and helped us understand everything around the transaction from the perspective of our best interest.They're professional and friendly, extremely familiar with the communities and markets they operate in, and helped provide clarity in an otherwise turbulent market.I would recommend Ryan and Tim to anybody looking to purchase a home in the area.

          - Jing Wang via Zillow
        • This team was really responsive at any day and time, and we were able to move through at a clip. We used the VA loan to purchase and this team had experience with them (several other teams that we spoke with did not), which also made the process smooth. We would recommend and are completely satisfied.

          - lusaul via Zillow
        • I met Tim & Ryan through my spouse's coworker. They came to our home and were able to provide great detail of the housing market in the areas we were interested in moving to and gave advice on renting/selling our condo. To our surprise they advised us not to sell the condo, which obviously would have provided them with another commission. As we moved into the home search phase, Ryan became our main point of contact and was always available to answer any questions and would provide detailed reports on changes to certain housing markets. Everything about our experience with Ryan was first class. He was prompt with responses, quickly lined up appointments to see houses, guided its through the mortgage and title process and helped push things forward without prompting.The experience he provided was far and away better than previous endeavors into home buying, and I would suggest him to anyone looking for houses in the area.

          - mmaloney364 via Zillow
        • Ryan was extremely helpful in every step of the home buying process, from knowledge of the market to preparing us for everything we needed to get together to make a winning offer on the first try without overpaying. He was quick to respond to any questions, no matter how mundane, and set up viewings for us faster than I would have thought possible.

          - dmollergunderson via Zillow
        • Did his job as good as i would expect: Keep tabs on offer activity, negotiating buy price, connecting me with good lenders, and discussing good/bad points on each of the houses when touring. Very responsive to any questions asked. After offer acceptance, was walked through escrow process, so there wasn't anything unclear. Very solid real estate agent, would recommend to family and friends.

        • We recently bought a house thanks to Tim and Ryan. They have been super present and responsive from day one to the very end. Being foreigners we needed extra help to understand the different rules that apply to California's market, and they very patiently guided us through the entire process.

          - cristiano castello via Zillow
        • Tim & Ryan are by far the best realtors we have ever worked with. They take the time to know you & your family, learn what your desires and requirements are, and they conduct thorough research about potential neighborhoods in the area; so they can provide you with top-notch service. Theyre communication (phone calls, texts, emails, etc) was superb, as they kept us informed (whether good news or bad) every step of the way. Additionally, as Navy veterans, they helped us win a home in Menlo Park under $90k of the listing price using the VA Loan in a highly competitive market during the COVID pandemic. Their constant availability to quickly tour homes, answer questions, as well as provide renovation recommendations that would add value to our home was second to none. Tim & Ryan are not just your standard realtors, but are a duo who seeks lasting relationships with their clients. If youre looking for a home in the Bay Area, choose Tim & Ryan as they are the best in the business who focus on YOU!

        • From the first second interacting with Tim and Ryan me and my husband knew we found our match. Unlike other agents who came off as too pushy and not in tune with our needs, we found that Tim and Ryans young, agile and direct approach fit us perfectly. They helped us finding our first home, completely according to our preferences. We enjoyed the whole process with them so much; they made it fun, easy-going and smooth. We felt like we were in safe hands throughout the whole process. We cant say enough good things about them - thank you Tim and Ryan for helping us find the home of our dreams!

        • Tim and Ryan are the BEST real estate agents that I have ever worked with. Period! I have interacted with several agents for the past few years and have bought and sold houses with 3 different agents. Often times I was either pushed by the agents or had to pick up some of their work in order to close on time. That was why my husband and I were a little bit worried when we moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. We were fortunate enough to meet Tim and Ryan. They provided 7-star home buying experience! They took a lot of time to understand what we want by not only talking to us consistently but also showing us different houses in each of the neighborhoods that might fit our criteria. Within a month, our knowledge of the area went from 0 to 8 (10 means you live in the area for over a decade). They talked us out of a lot of houses, especially when we were exhausted and just wanted to settle in a house. Finally, when we found the house that we really like, Tim and Ryan navigated us through the stressful bidding process and we were able to win the house without overpaying. Ryan even drove 1.5 hours each way to hand-deliver our signed closing documents so that we could close on time. The list goes on. Tim and Ryan really went above and beyond on every aspect of our home buying process. More impressively, after we bought the house, Tim and Ryan even helped with our remodel. I would not have bought a house that needs a lot of remodeling but has great potential if I did not have Tim and Ryan by my side! Honestly, I would say that Tim and Ryan spent at least 3x more time on each client than other agents. I would go to Tim and Ryan for any of my future real estate transactions and I suggest you do the same!

        • No words can express how amazing Tim and Ryan are at what they do. They know Bay Area real estate like nobody else and I trust them 110%. For a first time buyer like me- I felt comfortable because they were very thorough through each step of the process. They gave honest feedback for any property we showed interest in because they truly care about finding the right place for our wants and needs.Their support doesnt end when the transaction is finished- they continue to be a reliable source of information on home improvements and renovations as well. They are simply fantastic and we cant thank them enough. We will be sending all of our friends and family to them for any real estate transactions in the future.

        • I and my wife are very happy to have found Ryan and Tim for our first home purchase. They made the whole process from doing house tours to signing the final deal, easy with our 6 months old baby. They were extremely knowledgeable and gave inputs in a transparent way, which helped us to make informed decisions quickly. They were very quick in their response time and kept us posted on each and every step of the process. They also helped us with our home remodeling with their expert advises and contacts. We would highly recommend Tim & Ryan to anyone who is looking for a pleasant and exceptional home buying experience and they would be our first choice for our next home purchase.

        • I had a fantastic experience with Tim and Ryan and will strongly recommend them to my friends without a single doubt. They are very easy to communicate with, super responsible, knowledgable, and incredibly helpful. They provided tremendous help throughout my house purchase and remodeling. I met Tim at an open house (thanks to the fate!) and decided to have Tim and Ryan as my agent after the first meeting and a few chats along the way. Tim knows the South Bay area inside out. He can draw out the good neighborhoods right away (even down to the streets); and he can do that because he has a lot of experience and has done a lot of research (such as personally driving through those areas both days and nights). Beyond knowing the area well, they also have a lot of connections with loan agents, listing agents, and other resources. Searching for a house was very tedious and tiring. Tim and Ryan made it much easier for us. They really understood our needs. Every week, they went through the houses that fit our needs (not the automatic program like other agents!) and sent us long text messages or very detailed emails regarding the pros and cons of each house they thought might worth a look. Tim and Ryan really cared about what would be good for us and were not pushy at all. Sometimes they even straightly said that it is not your house. As we are nothing close to decisive, Tim and Ryan always patiently shared their thoughts and helped us analyze why we should/shouldnt buy the house. We ended up purchasing a fixer upper house. Tim knows a lot of things about remodeling and helped us estimate how much it would cost to redo the bathrooms and kitchen. Also, he was able to find a general contractor to give us a quote even before the purchase so we can factor that into consideration. We had hours of calls and broken down every single line item of what a remodeling would cost and then decided if we should buy the house. This is not something normal agents could offer.

        • As first time homebuyers, my wife and I were completely over our head. Tim and Ryan were great from the very beginning. They were never pushy, they responded quickly and in great detail to any question that we had about neighborhoods, and they were able to guide us through the homebuying process explaining every step of the way. They knew what we wanted, and made sure that we were able to find what we wanted at the best price. We loved working with them, and we would recommend them to anyone!

        • As a second time client of Tim and Ryan my husband and I highly recommend Tim and Ryan as the best agents we know. Tim and Ryan are our trusted real estate advisors. They are experts on the bay area market and know how to look for value(needle in the haystack). They have helped us in every step of the process. We would not even have thought of a second investment property if it was not for the confidence in Tim and Ryan. Post the purchase Tim and Ryan have been helping us navigate the rental investment world.Highly recommend them.

        • Ryan and Tim are incredibly thorough and insightful on the local market inventory, conditions and general home buying process. They were very in tune with our top criteria and a great soundboard during the whole process. Couldnt ask for better partners!
