Timothy Lester's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with
Timothy Lester

  • Timothy listed and sold my home

      Robert had excellent knowledge of the area. He helped me sell my home and then buy a condo. He did a lot research and was extremely professional. He is an enjoyable person who also lives in the area so he was able to tell me things like where to set up utilities, a good mortgage broker, etc.

    • Timothy listed and sold my home

        First time Using Tim Lester. No problems with the company at all

      • I wanted a realtor who specialized in the area and Tim really seemed a good choice. On interviews with several realtors, he was the only one who came very well prepared. Extremely knowledgeable about the Palmetto market. Chose him and got exceptional communication and professionalism. Would always go to Tim Lester Realty first any time I have another opportunity to buy or sell.

        - Brian K. Palmetto,FL
      • Mine was not a straightforward listing or closing. Tim and his team couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. They were always quick to respond to any questions or concerns.

        - Terri D. Palmetto,FL
      • I received excellent service from Tim and his team. Everything about the sale was excellent--timing, price negotiation, marketing decisions (including repairs). His follow through was consistently timely and spot-on. We are out-of-state sellers and even were out of the country for a portion of the time, but they remained in contact and on task. Tim Lester Realty is truly 5-star!

        - Jane S. Palmetto,FL
      • Tim is a master in the Real Estate world. He is professional, kind, funny and a pleasure to work with in every aspect of the process of buying or selling your home. We have done both with Tim and will continue to do so as long as we have real estate. Tim knows the market trends, values and stays up to date on what people are looking for in the business. If you want to buy or sell your home look no further for someone to get it done, Tim is your "go to person".

        - John C. Parrish,FL
      • We had an excellment experience using Tim Lester International Realty. They took the time to show us multiple properties, always taking note of what we liked and didn't like. Tim Lester Realty made our first home buying experience a smooth and enjoyable process! I would highly recommend Tim Lester Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell.

        - Meghan A. Bradenton,FL
      • Great company to work with. They made the process as seamless and stress free as possible. We are first time homeowners and had lots of stupid questions and Tim always had the right answers for us. Do not hesitate when choosing Tim Lester Realty.

        - Tayler L. Palmetto,FL
      • Great service. Sold our house within a week. Very professional. Tim knows the area since he grew up there and still lives there. Very knowledgeable and prompt. Great real estate company and team to work with.

        - William B. Palmetto,FL
      • Tim and his team have represented us twice. First on the purchase of a second home and then on the sale of our Bay Colony waterfront home. Tim Lester's knowledge of area waterfront properties placed us in a position to sell our home quickly yet at a price point that was excellent for our market. Tim explained and documented the basis for the suggested listing price and the activity that price point should generate. Both of our transactions with "Team Lester" were professional. They represented us during all negotiations very well. First when we were in the position of buyer and then again as seller.

        - Ed V. Palmetto,FL
      • We've had the pleasure of working with Tim Lester on a few different transactions over the last 10 years, and he is always fair, professional and a joy to work with. He knows the Manatee county area really well and can help you sell or buy any house. Thank you, Tim!

        - Jean C. Parrish,FL
      • Tim Lester's "Team" made an extremely difficult process seem effortless. Me being a combat disabled veteran, they didn't hesitate to take charge of all aspects, which allowed me the flexibility to continue physical therapy and purchase my home at the same time. Truly, truly great team!!!! Veterans, Veterans, Veterans if you are moving or planning to move to Florida in the 941 area and beyond the Tim Lester "team" WILL make it happen. Their knowledge/skill in the VA Home Buyers process is excellent. Being a former agent myself and having competed against his team in the same market area as "Team Lester" kind of says it all from a professional standpoint. I can proudly say to you and your "team" THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.

        - Reginald W. Palmetto,FL
      • Tim Lester and his team did everything that needed to be done to the fullest and with high regard to me the client. I wasn't in the area for most of the listing but Tim made everything easy and convenient for me to complete. Professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with him and his team.

        - Craig E. Palmetto,FL
      • I would say our experience with Tim Lester Realty was excellent. We knew we would be listing with him after researching the activity of various agents in the area. After speaking with him I knew we made the right decision as he lived and worked in our area, and was very knowledgeable about all the activity. Tim came out to our property and gave us all the information so that we could make an informed decision on price and sales approach.He kept us informed on any activity in feedback from other agents, and was very professional and a joy to work with.

        - Judy W. Palmetto,FL
      • Tim was extremely efficient and knowledgeable. We were absentee owners of a property in Palmetto which we needed to sell. We knew nothing about the area, and Tim provided guidance and assistance at every step. Got 2 acceptable offers within days of listing the property.

        - Sharon K. Palmetto,FL
      • This was a tough transaction... Selling our home to buy another one with simultaneous closings and in the middle of hurricane season. But Tim Lester Realty was professional, knowledgeable, patient and made it ALL work. I would highly recommend Tim Lester Realty and the team for any real estate transaction. Their expertise and customer service is above and beyond. GO TEAM LESTER!!!

        - Joan B. Palmetto,FL
      • We cannot say enough good things about Tim Lester Realty and their handling of our home sale. Let's just say they are the best in the business. They not only competently handled a normal sale but one that ran into an unexpected challenge. They was with us through the entire transaction with their wonderful personalities plus efficient and professional expertise. They made the whole process comfortable letting us step back and feel we were excellent hands.

        - Laura J. Palmetto,FL

      • We originally chose Tim Lester Realty based on their knowledge of the area. What we got was so much more! They did a great job guiding us through the process and giving us hope when things went unexpectedly. Although we know they had other clients we felt as if we were their only client. Their knowledge of real estate was apparent from the beginning. They left no questions unanswered and responded promptly.

        - Eli M. Palmetto,FL
      • Attentive, professional and hard working. They helped us buy a condo and then later a house. I would gladly use Team Lester again for any real estate transaction.
