When it came time to market our family home, I called Tim Sipprell because our friends had used him to sell their home in the same neighborhood and they were very satisfied.


Our home had been in our family for 63 years and had sheltered four generations of our family, so there were emotional connections to the property. The house had not been remodeled for several decades, and some of the work that had been done was of poor quality. I knew I would need a good contractor and Tim had a close working relationship with an excellent general contractor. We had a substantial, although not unlimited, budget to update the home and we were able to come, at least close to that budget with very few surprises.


Tim has a very good sense of what appeals to first-time home buyers, and we appreciated his vision and direction. The house looked great and we received an offer within two weeks, in a softening market.


Frankly, it costs about the same to list your home with a top real estate agent as it does to list it with an untested or inexperienced agent. Why would you choose to cut expenses on something this important? We felt the communication about the status of our home sale and closing was appropriate and Tim’s real strength, in our case, was bargaining, always representing our best interests in the transaction. We recommend him without reservations.
