My wife, our boys and I have been in Austin for almost 10 years and I have lived in Texas for almost 25 years. The twins were born here and we will raise them here where they can get the best possible education and up-bringing. Austin has something special to offer our family and we believe it has something unique to offer to you and your family.

Over the years, I have studied construction, design, product marketing, business, architecture, contract law and even the concepts of selling. When I walk into a home--I get it. New construction, remodel or a house ready for your custom touches--I understand what works and why it works. More importantly, I am able to help my clients, buyers and sellers, understand what works for them and for their needs and help them prioritize their real estate decisions. Ask any experienced Realtor and they will tell you that buying a home is never about finding "a perfect house", but Real Estate is about "the perfect home for you" and the process of finding your perfect home involves trade-offs and decisions. What works for you is never what worked for the last 10 clients of mine. Your perfect home will require that we find the trade-offs that work for you and turn your new house in your perfect home.

I love this business and I will be the first to say that I am pretty good at what I do. I believe a Realtor is only as good as their work ethic and their last 6 months of transactions. On any given month I may work with from 2-5 buyers getting into their dream home or selling selling their home. My clients benefit from my experience--and that is not an empty promise of how long I have been in this business. Experience of doing deals. Experience of helping clients.

My wife and I have traveled the world and lived all over the USA and Asia. We seldom meet a stranger and always enjoy getting to know new friends. We would love to add you to our list of friends and I would love to help you buy or sell your next home in the Greater Austin area. If we have not spoken already, give me a call--Let's Talk.

Tim is a wellspring of real-estate information and a trustworthy advocate for any home-buyer. He is patient, informative, and is in your corner if things get tough but more importantly he is equipped with the knowledge, experience, and negotiating skills to do so. Tim is simultaneously friendly, approachable, and willing to go the extra mile for you. He saved us from more than a few "gotchas" in the home-buying process. I highly recommend him and encourage you to check out his blog too for more real-estate info also.. (austinrealestatesecrets.com)

I have nothing but the highest praise for Tim Thornton's knowledge, professionalism and experience. These attributes are extremely helpful in moving the seller through the pitfalls and intricacies involved in selling a house. His predictions and estimates proved correct in nearly every instance and were instrumental in helping me avoid complications and maintain confidence in the process. Tim's honesty, sense of humor and continuous availability were sincerely appreciated.
