Just purchased our 12th home in two years with Tim. Tim's expertise is unquestionable. Our company has seen a very good ROI of every home we purchased thru Tim. With the addition of Tim's Property Management Company, these investments have turned into a very good turn key business for us. Our trust with Tim is now developing into Apartment Complexes of 50 units or greater to expand our presence in Central Florida. Our company will continue to grow with income all because of this great Realtor. As another comment sent by another buyer, Tim should be elected "Agent of the year" !!

Tim is the most hard working agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Tim's communication is far above expectations. Tim has an excellent knowledge of the investor side of real estate. I am buying homes to flip and sell or rent. So far, my purchases are averaging 8% ROI and 20% on flip/sells. Awesome, far above my initial expectations. If you are considering to purchase for your family or investment, you will be in great hands with Tim. Tim's is very trustworthy, I have purchased a few homes without even seeing them before or after closing. Tim is definitely a full service Real Estate Agent.

AWESOME !! Tim has got to be the most prepared, most in tune with my needs, and always available to answer all my questions. I have purchased two home from Tim for investment/rental properties. Every home that Tim has searched for, negotiated, and followed thru with my sale has been flawless. Tim's experience to find the homes that return the most in ROI has been amazing. I will continue to purchase these great values and receive 10% ROI for as long as I can. Thanks Tim !!

Thanks Homoud ! I'll keep searching for those great deals for rental investment. 10% to 12% ROI in this market at this time is the best we've seen in a long time. No wonder the foreign investors are snapping up these properties ! I'm looking forward to your next purchase !

Tim Manko should be awarded realtor of the decade. We have been working with Tim for many months to relocate. When we finally decided to sell our home, Tim was instrumental in selling the house within 2 days of listing. The new buyers were anxious to be in the house for Christmas, leaving only a few weeks to close. Tim worked the builder on Thanksgiving Day, to purchase, and coordinate a closing date, allowing us to be in our new home for Christmas as well. There were many obstacles related to the purchase of the new home, of which Tim thwarted each step of the way. Tim is fully aware of upgrade pricing, and all costs associated with purchasing a home. He is knowledgeable of financing, mortgage documentation requirements, even to the detail of wiring money at closing. We are confident that Tim was the major driving force for our rapid closure. His perseverance, knowledge of the business and negotiation tactic is astounding. We highly recommend Tim for his outstanding communication skills, knowledge of the area, knowledge of structural integrity and responsiveness.

We contacted Tim when we had very limited time to look for house. Tim asked us about the house we were looking for and the area we liked and immediately set us with with account on ZipRealty and set up appointments to show us the homes. After we saw several homes the first day, he found the house that we really liked the second day and worked hard to get the deal that we were happy with. He followed up with contract and stayed on top of all the questions and requests we had and resolved all issues with the mortgage company. Tim provided us with the service that were hoping to get. He was professional, efficient and prompt in all activities leading to the successful closing on our house. I would recommend Tim for real estate needs to any of our friends. Thanks Tim for the job well done !!!

This is the second time that Tim has helped our family purchase a home in Davenport. We were very impressed with him the first time; this time confirmed that he is a consummate professional. We had been watching the new listings for a while when this house came on the market. It was the right location, right price and in great shape. 6 or 7 other folks thought the same so while we moved quickly we were 1 of 8 offers. Tim's help writing the offer was invaluable; they accepted ours and 3 weeks later we closed and moved in. Thanks again Tim.

I can not say enough good about working with Tim. He was in constant contact with us (we are up North buying our vacation/retirement house in Orlando). We found lots of house on ZipRealty.com; he suggested more including the one we eventually purchased. The transaction went smoothly even with the previous owners living outside the US. Our family will be using him again!

Working with, Tim has been a pleasure. He is a very sincere, friendly and down to eartth person who makes the whole process very easy. He helped us determine the price of our home and suggested several beneficial ways to enhance the sale of it. In 4 days we had two offers, the first was $3,000.00 under what we were asking and the second one was full price.

We had been searching for a home since November. We finally found one, and the deal feal through. We decided we needed to switch agents, because we needed someone who knew the area, listened to what we needed, and was aggressive. Tim was all these things. He would always let us know if it was worth our time to even make an offer and he gathered as much info as he could to help us with our price point. We started with Tim in Feb, and closed In April. We also got an early closing. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for someone with great negotiating skills. We couldn't thank him enough!

Can't say enough about the great experience that we had with Tim. In searching for a home for our son and as an investment property, we were looking at lower end pricing, Tim educated us on ins and outs and did not treat us any different then someone looking for pricey property, knowing that his commision would not be as large. He was in constant contact with us via e-mail or phone with possibilities. Quick to respond to any questions and viewings. In a market like today he was able to make our wishes succeed. Purchasing process went quickly and smoothly. Would definitely recommend Tim to anyone.

After communicating via e-mail, we finally met Tim and viewed some homes. He is very knowlegable about construction and landscape concerns in the south, and educated us as to why some things lookand function differently than here in the north. We never felt pressured or rushed. We didn't find our house this trip, but we're more educated buyers, and trust Tim to lead us to the house that makes us say "This is The One."

Tim Manko was a total professional and even more. We don't have enough words to express our appreciation for his excellent work. Due to the fact that he kept us well informed, helped us look for exactly the type of property we needed we were able to purchase the condo from Costa Rica without even looking at it, relying solely on the pictures on the web site and the information that Tim provided us. We were totally happy with our purchase. We had several other real estate agents which we wrote to, but they would send information very different from the type of property we were looking for and did not provide the information we really needed. Tim was the only one that really provided the right information, would always take his time to answer all of our questions. If we make another purchase in the future, we would definitely work with Tim.

Tim went well beyond the call of duty in managing and helping move along a very frustrating and complicated buying and closing process. Tim always followed up and kept me informed whenever the bank or title company presented us with problems, sometimes due to their oversights and poor communication. I will absolutely be recommending Tim and Zip Realty to friends looking to relocate. Tim was TOPS and in addition, I consider him a valued friend. He is the best representative of Zip Realty you could ever ask for! Regards, Keith Myers

Tim Manko was very prepared when we arrived to look at properties. He had discussed with us what we were looking for, recognized the ones we had marked on the website and had them all in his gps so no time was wasted looking for these properties. When we arrived at each location, he handed us printed information on that location. Once we made an offer, it was a long, drawn-out process because of the bank. Tim was very helpful to us and exercised enormous patience with us and all the other factions involved. We would recommend him to anyone. In fact, we both agree he is the best realtor with whom we have ever worked. (You have permission to use our recommendation re Tim but please do no include our last name.)
