---For many, trying to sell a home out of state would be quite challenging. Tim Tanz is someone who can be trusted to get the job done. He really wen above and beyond to help us handle business remotely. We had repairs and other special requests that Tim was able to coordinate locally on our behalf. He worked diligently to get our house listed & sold in a timely manner. It was truly a pleasure working with him.
Trudy S. – 5604 Oleatha Ave.
---Tim Tanz is an excellent real estate agent, and I would recommend him to anyone! We were referred to him by a friend who was impressed by the way he handled the sale of their home. He did not fail to impress us either.
Tim sold two homes for us in the course of two years. We owned both a primary residence and a rental property, and because of a possible relocation in the future, we decided to sell our primary residence first, and the rental property a year later. Despite a tough economy and tough markets for both houses, Tim was able to get us the prices we needed for both homes.
Our primary residence had a contract in less than a month of listing, thanks to Tim’s persistence with a couple who had shown interest in the property. He went above and beyond to contact their agent with comps in the area and to encourage them to make an offer. He made the entire process, from start to finish, very painless.
A year later, we listed our other home once again using Tim’s services. I an even tougher market, we had a contract within one week of listing our house, for the asking price!
Tim does an excellent job with all aspects of selling a home – from taking great pictures, to giving sound advice about staging and repairs, and pricing the home right from the start. With the second house our closing was done out of state, and it went more smoothly than we could have ever imagined.
We are so grateful that we had Tim to sell our homes for us!

You did an amazing job with our Grandmother's home. I can't tell you what a godsend and a relief you were. One could only imagine what would have happened had we waited to find you any longer.

---Thank you for all your help on the sale of my Mom’s four family flat. For a month prior to listing with Tim, we tried to sell the flat on our own. We listed it on Zillow and Craigslist. We held open houses on four consecutive Sundays, but no one came by. I interviewed others trying to sell without an agent, and their stories did not leave me confident. We signed with Tim, and his marketing plan was so complete that in less than a week we had an offer. I tell anyone who is selling or buying to give Tim a call.
Dr. Dan L. – 3841 Potomac St.
---THANK YOU!!! I don’t know what we would have done without you! It is scary to think of how close we were to being in a really bad situation. You did an amazing job…of marketing the house…keeping us calm…and getting’ ‘er done! You are a great agnet and friend!! I am writing a letter of recommendation for your file and feel free to list us if any potential clients want a reference.
James and Stepanie F. – 4208 Cleveland Ave.
Thanks for getting everything arranged with the inspections and repairs while we were out of town! I still can't believe it all happened in time given the title company issues and our crazy schedules. I'll be letting my other friends in St Louis know about you if they plan to sell. If you ever get tired of St Louis, Vermont is a great place! I am still trying to get used to the idea of people not stealing my stuff though, Thanks.

---We would recommend Tim Tanz with great enthusiasm to potential home sellers in the St Louis area. We put our St. Louis Hills home on the market during the summer of 2006. On a street with highly similar homes, several were for sale at the same time, making us quite nervous about the process. In the end, our home sold in two weeks at a price that we were very happy with.
Tim was very professional, courteous, and prompt. We heard from him often, and he was very accessible when we had our own questions. He was very forthcoming and gave sound advice when it came time to decide on a listing price, make decisions about how to best show the house, and make contract negotiations. However, he was never pushy and always listened to our opinions and desires. Tim’s work ethic was impressive; he always made us feel that selling our home was a top priority for him. He met with us quickly and made sure the listing, photos, and video tours were online in a timely manner. He gave us prompt feedback after each showing. He worked hard in using numerous outlets to market our home. Along with being an effective professional, however, Tim is an enjoyable person to be around and work with. The selling process is a bit less painful when you have someone honest and genuine by your side. (And his good sense of humor didn’t hurt either.)
We are very grateful for Tim’s services and would definitely call him again if we had to do it over again!

---We've mentioned this to Tim, but I will repeat it; I've been involved in many real estate transactions (buyer and seller) and this really has been the easiest and smoothest by far. From the sellers doing fixes to the lender to the neighbor (fixing the survey issue) to the agents and your teams, we couldn't be happier. Thank you.
It is OFFICIAL!! We are homeowners again! The Longbow Court Manor house is ours now!! Yayyyyyyy!!!! Family and friends will always be welcome. This has truly been the easiest real estate transaction I have been involved with. Everyone from the sellers to the lender were on top of getting things done. Our biggest thanks goes out to an AMAZING, ETHICAL, INTELLIGENT, CARING AND ON THE BALL realtor, Tim Tanz. Thanks Tim!

---It is with great happiness and customer satisfaction that I write this letter of recommendation for my Realtor, Tim Tanz. I chose Tim because I had heard many positive remarks about his dedication to his profession and because he was a wonderful neighbor that I could trust in helping me sell my home.
Before placing the “For Sale” sign in my front yard, Tim had already prepared an in-depth presentation and evaluation of my home and price comparisons to many homes in my area to help determine a fair price. I was also given a detailed list of all services that Tim would provide in the marketing and sale of my home. Not only did Tim fulfill every detail of that list, he went beyond that list by making sure that I had a copy of every advertisement he placed in every newspaper and magazine, a copy of the hundreds of postcards he sent out showcasing my home, and constant feedback and suggestions about what would help my home sell.
There was never any pressure to make hasty decisions. Tim always gave me sound advice as if my home were his own. He also told me what all of my options were, and what the outcome of each decision yielded. With Tim, I feel I made excellent decisions that worked well with my family. He negotiated in my best interests and kept communications open with the buyers’ realtors and myself. I was secure in knowing what was going on at all times.
Tim made sure that I was taken care of. I did not have the worries and fears that I hear most people have when they are trying to sell their home. He made every transition and transaction as smooth as possible and was immediately there if something new had to be accomplished. I hope that everyone could be as fortunate as I was to find such a caring and trustworthy Realtor as Tim Tanz. Not only is he my Realtor, now, he is my good friend.
Mrs. Anglia W. – 4104 Wyoming St.
---I was incredibly pleased with the services of Tim Tanz as my Seller’s Agent. He made the experience of selling my house as painless as possible. I experienced that Tim went out of his way to make the process as effortless as possible for me the seller – this is not a minor statement because unfortunately I hit some major bumps along the process. Even though these unanticipated difficulties did not directly have anything to do with the actual real estate listing agent, I found that Tim was a great asset and strength to me during the resolution of the unexpected difficulties.
Long before I even knew if we were going to move, and thus before I committed to giving Tim the listing, he took the time to visit my house and complete a walk through to assist me in determining what needed to be done to the house prior to placing it on the market. He completed a market analysis of the area and assisted me in determining a potential selling price for the house. Once the decision was made to move out of state, Tim was able to post the listing on the house and complete numerous advertisements within a day and a half of me informing him of the decision. He took advantage of multiple marketing methods thus increasing the overall exposure of the house. He was prompt to respond to any questions and worked well around my schedule.
His market analysis and suggested list price must have been right on target, because I had two contract offers in less than two weeks of the initial posting date. The final sale price of the house was within $5,000 of the original listing price, and we had an agreed up contract within about two weeks of the first posting date. My family and I were able to move out of state, and never have to make a single double house payment. It is also important to note that I walked away with over $70,000 profit from the sale of the house.
I would highly recommend Tim as a Seller’s Agent. I found that he was professional and courteous, yet maintained the ability to be personable and genuine. It is difficult to find a person in the real estate field that is consistently genuine; yet Tim is. He is knowledgeable in his field and will give you fair and honest feedback about your house and real estate issues. I found that he went above and beyond what was “expected” of a real estate agent, and it wasn’t “just for the commission.” I honestly can’t think of a thing he left out or fell short of my expectations during the process of selling my house. He maintained constant contact with me during the process, and even after the sale was completed to ensure that all the potential loose ends were completed. Once again, I was extremely pleased with Mr. Tanz’ services and would highly recommend him to anyone considering placing their house on the market.

---I was very satisfied with the service I received from you. When I first listed my home, I talked with three different Realty Companies. The first realtor was very pushy. The second realtor did not make any impression on me.
I was impressed with the way you presented yourself, the paperwork you prepared for me, and I also liked the picture of my house that was used on the flyer. You walked through my home and made suggestions to me that might make my home sell faster.
After I signed with you, we were both in agreement not to go with the FHA loan because of the age of my home. You recommended what you thought should be the asking price, and I did not think I would get that much, but my children were in agreement with you.
You gave me a list of all the phone numbers necessary for me to contact. That was very helpful.
When we did close, there was a slight mix-up, and you made two trips to my work so that I could sign some papers and not have to leave work.
I would definitely recommend you to anyone that needs a Realtor. Thanks again for all your help.

---I was well pleased with the service you provided. Your explanations were thorough and to the point. I would say well done Tim Tanz, and thank you very much! Many, many thanks for the transportation.
Ms. Monica H. – 4108 Wyoming St.
---It is hard to come up with any negative feedback for the fantastic job you did. From your suggestions when I first contacted you, to helping me with repairs, to your sound advice. This is the third transaction between us and it will not be the last. I will give your name to all who are inquiring about real estate. Thank you again for all your hard work.

---Thanks again for being a super help in finding a home! Looking for friendly & professional? Hit up my friend Tim Tanz if you need to buy or sell...you rocked it Mr. Tim!
Richard M. – 4039 S. Spring Ave.
---We are beyond thrilled to have found Tim. Not only is he a true professional, but a genuine delight to be around. He was impressively organized and on top of everything, and we truly felt like he would take care of our best interests throughout the process of buying our first home. He maintained an excellent balance of deferring to our opinion and preferences, but providing a fair and balanced opinion when we needed it! We often solicited his advice and were so glad to have a trusted source to suggest mortgage lenders, local vendors, next steps, etc. Tim is a sincerely kind and competent realtor who we would wholeheartedly refer to anyone.
Kyle & Emma K. – 4053 Shenandoah Ave.
Just wanted to send you a note of thank you for helping me along the way with the purchase. I have gotten moved in, had a couple friends over for New Years from Indiana. I enjoy the home and living on my own. Thanks.
B. Johanan – 4441 Grace Ave.
Just wanted to thank you again for finding me a great place downtown!
And thanks for that 10% coupon at Lowe's, that really came in handy. Took a big bite out of the new washer & dryer for me.
I'm especially thankful for your efforts through all that was going on in your personal life. Your professionalism and flexibility through it all, and your positive and fun outlook through all the challenges we faced in the process really were key to making this happen for me and are a testament to your character--you deserve, and will receive, better.
Next person moving back to St Louis (there is one headed back in about a year) will get your name as the only agent they need to know. Thanks again,
John F. - 1123 Washington Ave.
