We've moved 9 times in the past 15 years and have come to recognize exceptional realtors from the rest. A great realtor adds tremendous value to what can be a stressful experience. Tim Gilson is one of those exceptional professionals - he helped us from the very first introductory visit to post-closing. He was referred to us by friends and now we're happy to do the same for others. You won't regret choosing Tim to help sell or buy your home. You can expect great service every step of the way.

My fiancé and I just purchased our first home with Re/Max Vision -- Tim Gilson was a superb realtor and he truly deserves the five star rating. He made us feel extremely comfortable when showing us homes and came to know our needs well -- there were even times when we would walk into a home and he would say, "Nope, this one isn't for you. Let's move on." and he was absolutely correct. He helped us to differentiate the superficial issues from the serious ones, which, with our inexperience, was extremely helpful. We cannot thank Tim, Claire, and Karen from Re/Max Vision enough! Less ... More

Tim Gilson was a wonderful agent. He counseled us on improvements to make, and his team did a great job of photographing the strengths and features of the home. He patiently explained the home-selling process. He and his team promptly responded to any questions we had and any documents we needed to examine or re-examine during the closing process.

My boyfriend and I recently purchased our first home in Livonia. Tim Gilson and the rest of the team were great to work with! They were very prompt, friendly, and easy to communicate with throughout the entire process. Tim was excellent in explaining to us how the home purchasing works, what to expect, and gave great advice. The house is perfect for us and we love the location. We couldn't have asked for a better house and real estate agent. It was a smooth experience overall.

He make my moving to Utah seamless, and helped me out to close on my condo with little work from my side, and he manages all the closing for me, and makes the process easy and seamless for me. I highly recommend Tim and he had shown a very good knowledge, and guide me through.

Tim was a great help in helping me sell a property that was involved in an estate with complicated family issues. The process from start to finish was so much more tolerable with Tim at my side. His knowledge and negotiation skills are superb. The whole process from listing to closing was 4 weeks! I could not have asked for a better realtor!

My experience with Tim Gilson was exceptional. It was our first house buying experience and so I had many questions which Tim was eager to answer. He made our experience easy and less stressful by explaining the process in detail and guiding us in the right direction while focusing on our wants/needs. Tim was very knowlegable about the south-east michigan area and surrounding communities. This was especially helpful to us since we are not from the area. We would highly recommend Tim Gilson and his team to anyone either buying or selling their home. We plan to use Tim again in the future. Less ... More

After looking at a few homes with Tim, he understood what it was we were looking for: a unique home, with up north feel and setting, but located right here in town. Tim drove us around the city, showing us areas I never new existed, with tranquil, peaceful natural surroundings and off the beaten path. Tim's knowledge of the area helped him identify homes we would be interested in. This search took well over a year, with ups and downs along the way. Even so, Tim never lost sight of and remained focused on what it was we were looking for. As I write this review, we are sitting in living room of our new home looking out large windows overlooking the forest with a fresh layer of snow on the ground. It's like looking at an oversized Ansel Adams photograph. I would say mission accomplished! Thank you Tim! Tim also sold our old house. His knowledge of the market, what home improvements to make, and what price to list at, helped us to line up buyers quickly and get more than we were asking for it. Tim's advice was all spot on. Tim has also provided me with several excellent referrals for home improvement. Thank you again Tim! Less ... More

Unlike 2 or 3 other realtors I tried before who wanted me to email them my requirements, Tim was willing to meet personally with me and discuss my very specific needs. My search was long and Tim and his team were there with me all the time. His advice to be patient paid off when we found the right house for the right price. As a new homeowner I can say that Tim is a realtor I will keep for the future and that I will recommend him without hesitation to my dearest friends and family.

Tim Gilson found the perfect home for me -- near a downtown, 2000 sq ft, 4 bedrooms, home office, separate family room for the kids, and affordable with minimal fix-up. Mostly I'm impressed by his knowledge of all things real estate, his ownership in helping me find the best match for me, his ability to show me how simple, inexpensive changes would easily update the home, and his leadership in the negotiating process working on my behalf. It all worked out great for us. I completely trust Tim and highly recommend him and his staff. Less ... More

Tim has passion second to none for helping people achieve their housing goals. Tim helped us sell and purchase a home. He has a tremendous amount of patience and will always put his client first.

In my 1.5 yrs process of selecting the correct home, Tim was the 3rd Realtor we met and there was absolutely no turning away. He was clearly the most straight forward person, succinct with facts and outright honest. He is one person you can depend on. He understands your needs (no matter how picky you are) and is extremely patient with the process. He (and his team) is very efficient with the required paper works and can deliver as promised. We'd strongly recommend him. In fact, I'm not going look for a Realtor again. Less ... More

Tim Gilson acted as our agent for our recent sale of our long time home in Farmington Hills, MI He came highly recommended, for good reason, by our other family members. We were very impressed with both his experience as a Real Estate Agent and his knowledge of the Farmington Hills area neighborhoods. He responded to our calls immediately and always treated us like we were his most important client. He completed our sale in less than one day and skillfully shepherded us through the closing process. Tim kept us completely informed throughout the entire transaction. Working with Tim was a pleasure and we recommend him very highly. We don?t know how any agent could be any better, he is a very experienced agent with complete command of the real estate process and very friendly to boot, should the need arise we would certainly use his services again.

Have just completed another real estate transaction with Tim (2 in 3 years) and can not say enough about Tim's responsiveness, professionalism and integrity. It should have been a fairly simple and straight forward transaction. Due to a horrific sellers agent, things went from bad to worse. Tim stepped up and handled the other agent's deceptiveness, deceit and incompetency with skill and expertise to close the deal. Both the seller and I were so grateful for Tim's assistant.

Tim was a pleasure to work with. I had left him a voicemail initially with just my name and phone number, and before he even called back, he had done the research to learn about my property and the area it was in. He had prepared the paperwork to sell my home prior to our first meeting and with his help, I listed my property at a price that was reasonable enough to warrant an offer within a week. He helped to expedite the close process and worked with the title company to accommodate the fact that I would be out of town during the scheduled close date. I would recommend Tim to anyone- selling my home was an excellent experience with him. Less ... More

Tim was wonderful to work with & made everything very easy for us. We are first time home buyers and live out of town. In one weekend he showed us multiple condos & helped us find one that we loved. He was also very intelligent in that we had to compete with 14 other offers and he was able to help us strategize and beat all the other offers. We are very thankful to him for all that he has done for us. He definitely goes above & beyond for his clients. We would use him again without a doubt.

Tim Gilson acted as our agent for a recent purchase in Franklin, Michigan. As an English couple who have moved to the US we knew nothing of the house buying process over here and found Tim's wealth of knowledge invaluable. Tim held our hands through the entire process, providing us with first rate information regarding the local area and walking us through the whole real estate process from beginning to end. Tim is professional at all times and clearly knows his subject in depth. He holds the needs of his clients as a priority in his dealings and works extremely hard to help you find the right property at the right price. Our timeline was tight and we found that Tim was always responsive and made himself available to us whenever required demonstrating total flexibility to meet our needs. We broke all the rules and viewed many many houses in a very short period of time, Tim was very patient and never pushy - he facilitated us finding the right home and gave us solid advice and guidance to enable us to make the right decisions. Tim always had our best interests in mind and followed up time and time again to ensure that our negotiations went smoothly and that all outstanding issues were taken care of. Working with Tim was a real pleasure and we cannot recommend him and his expertise highly enough - he will always be our agent of choice for any future dealings. Less ... More

We had a really great experience with Tim. He help us to sell our home in Canton, MI and buy another home in Birmingham, MI. By following Tim's advice on setting the right selling price, we sold our home in just 2 days! While we were looking for our next home, Tim found a rental house for our family to live. Because of the low inventory on the housing market, we were having a hard time to find the right home to buy. Tim was always very patient with us. He told us to take our time and do not feel any pressure. Tim was very good at doing market research and providing data on the houses that we were interested.

Tim helped me to buy a condo at Royal Oak in Dec 2011. I am extremely happy and 120% satisfied with the service Tim provided. It was my first time to buy any property. I happened to find Tim on Zillow and it turned out picking up Tim is the wisest decision I ever made in this whole process. Tim is such as nice guy to work with and so easy to become his friend. Tim is very professional and has a lot of experience in real estate. He spent a lot of time with me, informing me each detailed step of how to buy a property, and understanding my personal need. As my agent, he always sought the best benefit for me, such as how to make the best offer to the condo I like. He always made him available to me no matter how busy he is. For my case, basically Tim takes care of everything for me, from the first meeting, to finding the right condo, then to making the offer and eventually closing the deal. The whole process is VERY nice and smooth. Overall, I am VERY impressed with Tim as well as his experience and expertise in real estate. I will definitely HIGHLY recommend Tim Gilson to all my families and friends in the future. I am sure you will have the same nice experience as me if you choose Tim. Less ... More

It was difficult for me to sell the only home I had ever purchased and lived in for fifteen years. I had so many memories, but had married and moved in with my husband. Tim was highly recommended to me and I can see why. Another thing, I am certain that with Tim's expertise and standing, he could have well declined handling my case. My house sold for very little. He did not. Throughout a very difficult transition for me, he remained attentive and calm. I elected to pay a shortfall, something I doubt Tim even had to negoitate for me, yet he did it all. I did no more in this transaction than send in forms and sign off. When I was unable to take time off from a new job, he attended two showings, one for me, one for the buyer. Honestly, I can't thank him enough for the time and patience he showed me. If you want to make your life a little easier at a difficult time, I strongly recommend contacting Tim to be your realtor.

Tim made himself available whenever it was necessary to see a new listing or move on a property as quickly as possible which turned out to be key in getting the house I wanted. Even after the sale was completed he followed through with getting needed paperwork from the seller to lower my home owners insurance. I strongly recommend Tim Gilson.

You will not find a better agent (I have had many) He is FULL time at this not a friend of a friend who sells/buys homes for friends.

Tim Gilson was absolutely amazing. There was never a moment when we doubted Tim's desire to help us or his ability to do so. When the seller was dragging his feet, Tim was on him. When the asset management company didn't properly de-winterize the house, Tim got them back out that same day to fix what was wrong. Tim is extremely knowledgeable and patient with his clients. We were first-time buyers, and Tim did a fantastic job explaining the entire process to us.

As a first time home buyer it was very important that I found an agent that I could trust to help me find a home. I was overly impressed with Tim Gilson from the moment I met him - Tim is patient, personable, hardworking and honest. Tim knows the area extremely well and was able to answer all of my questions and offer suggestions. He made me feel like I was his priority - exactly what you should feel when investing in a home. Not only that, he qualified me with pertinent questions and did his homework in the area I was focused in. In fact, the house I purchased was one Tim suggested and it ended up being exactly what I was looking for. I was especially impressed that I was never forced into making a decision - and actually talked out of making what would have been a bad decision. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone who is serious about buying or selling a home. I have already referred him and he has already helped others. Tim is determined and well equiped. Very knowledgeable and will work hard for you! Less ... More
