"Tim was simply awesome! He was very knowledgeable and always a step ahead of every question. We can't say enough about him or our experience! We just purchased our last home and what a way to do it. Tim is definitely an asset to question about it! " - Buyer
"Tim exhibits the utmost in professionalism and is a wealth of knowledge and experience. He truly seems to enjoy what he does. He has a passion for it and it shows. He is also committed to helping his clients find the right fit. There were so many times that he could have "sold us" on a more expensive property, but he was always very focused on how we felt about the property and our needs." - Adrienne So-Ying Fan, Austin
"Tim was calm, creative, knowledgeable, was amazing. I absolutely could not be more satisfied with Tim Thornton, and would happily be a reference for him. I will use him again and again and again." - Jani Saliga
"After working with Tim on this sale and previous dealings he is still in my opinion one of the best, or the best Real Estate Agent in the Austin market." - Lee Smith, Investor Builder
"He's not only good with the negotiation (for price and repairs on the property) during the purchase but his after sales service is the best we've ever had! Great job Tim!" - Investor Buyer, Cedar Park
"We enjoyed our experience with Tim for his expertise and professionalism. He was always pleasant and patient and it was a pleasure to know him." - Buyer, Austin
"Tim was great. We were very impressed and happy to work with him. He was committed, worked hard and made everything easy." - Pat Roberts, Austin
"I can't imagine someone being a better realtor than Tim Thornton. He is exceedingly conscientious, hard working, knowledgeable (on just about everything) and caring; he works seven days a week, and even on some holidays. Where did you find this guy; he's one in a million. Most importantly, he is committed to find you the home that you truly want; he won't let you settle for less; nor does he push you or make you feel uncomfortable that the process is taking longer than it should. He cares about you being happy with your decision; he understands how big of a decision this is for you.

At one point in the process of looking for the "perfect" home, I started to get carried away with a builder's model that was considerably over my budget. The home had some issues and did not satisfy some of my needs, but it really was a spectacularly beautiful home, and I wanted it. After many days of looking and not finding what I wanted I was ready to put in an offer; even though it was not the right home in some important respects. Tim could see that I was ready to pull the trigger and make an offer, but Tim didn't share my same level of enthusiasm and it bothered me. At one point Tim looked at me and said, "Robert, are you sure this isn't going to be too much home for you?" That remark, brought me instantly back to earth and caused me to refocus and evaluate my thinking; Tim was 200% correct; it would have been a bad decision and he could see it. Any other realtor would have picked up on my enthusiasm and put me under contract immediately; but not Tim. Like I said, he is one in a million." - Robert Coulson, Cedar Park

"Tim was always able to provide perspective and facts to us a sellers. The Zip team did as much as any broker can do to market and sell our home." - Brenda Howell, Austin
"Great agent... again!" - Buyer, Cedar Park
"Tim was a big help to us. He is also very knowledgeable, eager to help and friendly." - Buyer, Round Rock
"Tim is an honest and moral agent which is probably why he is so successful even during these tough times for real estate." - Emerson Smith, Austin
"Tim continued to push on, despite the challenges of buyer indecision, offer rejection, and various roadblocks. He stayed true to the mission to find us a home that we were delighted to buy. In the end, despite many more process challenges, we are in the home the we wanted, thanks to Tim." - Buyer, Austin
"Without Tim's help, I do not believe we would have found a home that had everything we wanted that was in our price range. We also did not think that we could purchase a new home and were looking at used. The home we decided to buy was brand new and we would never have seen it if it were not for Tim suggesting we take a look at it." - James Wood, Austin
"Tim did an outstanding job for us in all aspects.Very professional." - Buyer, Round Rock
"Tim worked very hard for me and with endless patience. He responded quickly any time I wanted to see a home or ask a question. I would be confident to recommend him and ZipRealty to my friends." - Elizabeth Beil, Round Rock
"My parent's bought 2 homes with Tim and I will use him again also, in the future." - Destini Ratliff, Cedar Park
"This is the second house we bought with Tim. We are so happy with his great service, that our daughter is buying her 1st house next week with Tim." - Buyer, Round Rock
"I would highly recommend Tim. He worked hard to find the right property and then stayed with us to quickly negotiate the best deal." - Edwin Young, Austin
"This is my second home purchase using Tim and as before he is probably one of only a few agents in Austin that knows what is going on in the Austin Real Estate market. A real professional!" - Lee Smith, Cedar Park
"Tim was very instrumental in getting the buyer of my old house's lender on track...Tim spent hours on the phone with him trying to persuade him to do his job!" - Janet Mcnutt, Austin
"Tim went above and beyond in representing us. He followed up with our builder on our behalf on several occasions and ensured that all issues were properly and promptly addressed. Every aspect of the deal was fully explained in layman's terms, and Tim ensured that both my wife and I were completely satisfied with his explanations before ending the conversation. I'd happily buy a house through Tim again and would recommend him to anyone in the market." - Jonathan Hickman
"We would highly recommend Tim as an agent for the Austin area. He was very accommodating and helped guide us to the perfect home. If he didn't know about something, he would get back to us very quickly with the answer! Tim is an all-around good agent and good guy!!" - Gunther Allen, Austin

"Tim is a wonderful agent to work with, and I would highly recommend him to anyone!!!" - Elizabeth Brown
"We met Tim via the Internet and then via phone from California. He was invaluable as our family made the decision to move to Austin, and he was very patient as my husband and I made multiple trips to see Austin areas and homes. No pressure! We would highly recommend Tim to any friends who might be following us to Austin as their new home!!" - Jenny Rosas
"Mr. Thornton was a pleasure to work with. He responded to every phone call and/or email, almost within minutes. Had an intelligent response for everything we queried about, was incredibly diligent with respect to every detail of our home purchase, from questioning the inspection report, commenting on potential problems, resolving issues as they arose (and unfortunately, too many issues arose), and making us feel completely comfortable and at ease with his expertise and professionalism. In addition to doing his job as a Realtor, Tim proved to be a great person to be around. We would recommend Tim to anyone we knew who was interested in either purchasing or selling a home. He is an asset to Zip Realty." - John E. & Cirlei E.

"I had two different buyer's agents tell me directly that Tim was doing an unusually good job representing me as they pointed out that he consistently called the buyer's agents for follow-up and immediately called them back to answer any questions they had. They said that it is rare to see such responsiveness and pro-activeness in the industry." - Lou Gagliardi
"Tim is a thorough professional. He has been there for us throughout the process. He knows his job and has pointed us in the right direction. He has been very patient, responsive and honest in the way he has conducted business with him. Austin was a new city for us but with Tim we feel that he showed us all the options before we made the decision. His help throughout the process was exceptional. In future (god forbid if we have to sell) we will definitely work with him." - Buyer

It was a pleasure working with Tim and I'm very happy with my new house. Thank you." - Blanca Favorite

"As we searched online for homes, we happened to "save" homes via ZipRealty and Tim Thornton. After many, many virtual home searches, Tim contacted us via email and asked if we were looking to buy in Austin.

Living in Los Angeles, CA, we knew very little to nothing about living in Austin, TX, but the city looked appealing to us.

From our first telephone conversation with Tim, we knew we were in good professional hands. He knew Austin, he knew the housing market, the schools, and he knew how to work with out of state clients.

Between August 2009 and December 2009, my husband and I visited Austin several times to look at residential areas and specific homes. Tim made himself available to us each visit, with patience and professionalism.

As we decided on a brand new home from a renowned builder, Tim did all the negotiations on our behalf. Essentially he said a price that we were comfortable with, and the builder agreed. This was a pretty painless process for us.

While we were not his only clients, Tim made us feel like we were.

Tim's online blog is also a wonderful resource of information about Austin and the real estate market! We continue to read it even after we've purchased and moved into our home!

We highly recommend Tim Thornton as a real estate professional." - Jenny and John R.
