I don’t have other real estate agents to compare him to, but Tim was really helpful during our home buying search. It felt like he was advocating for us and he really made sure we understood the process. He answered our questions like it was the first time he ever heard them and he didn’t make us feel like total losers for not having millions of dollars to spend. Tim’s business partner Virginia is also awesome.

In the end we bought a cute little house within our price range and just in time for our new baby. We couldn’t be happier.

Vanessa B. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim was a pleasure to work with and a great real estate agent! We would not have gotten the house we have now, in one of the toughest real estate markets ever, without Tim. We worked with Tim for almost a year searching for a house in SF. During this process he was always engaged, always available (would email back within minutes and make time to call with us), and very patient with our questions. We wrote over a dozen offers during that time. Tim was on top of every one of those, giving us comps to help us determine our offer price and making sure all the paperwork was filed on time.

I really appreciated Tim’s work ethic, humor and insightful opinions about the properties we saw.

Andy S. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim helped us buy our first home and we’re thankful for his shepherding us through this arduous process with unflinching confidence and helpful advice, despite the difficult real estate market in San Francisco for first-time buyers. We appreciated his responsiveness, breadth of experience, candidness, and patience. Also, Tim is well known by other agents in the city and is well respected by them. We enjoyed working with him.

He keeps it real!

Simon S. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim has vast, vast knowledge of real estate and the Bay Area. We’re very grateful for his patience and enthusiasm helping us as first-time homebuyers. He’s never pushed us to go a certain way, but always gave us a list of pros and cons to consider. Tim’s the best! Without a doubt, we will be coming back to him when we’re ready for our next purchase. Thank you Tim for a very pleasant, hassle-free experience! We met Tim at the end of February 2016 –one month later we were homeowners.

What could I POSSIBLY say about Tim that hasn’t already said by a million other people? Let me try anyway:

1. He’s an awesome communicator – doesn’t matter how many annoying emails I sent him at odd times during the day, Tim would get back to me in a really reasonable amount of time. He understands how nervous you might be feeling when buying a house, so he always would manage my expectations and when he said he would call or email, he would ALWAYS call or email.

2. He does what it takes, even if it eats into his personal life – After I won a bid at the condo I now live in, Tim did the final walk through inspection last minute, even though his son was visiting town! I felt terrible, but Tim really takes care of his clients. Even when he was on vacation in Hawaii and his partner was “handling all emails”, he was still checking in with me because he knew I was in a really pivotal time frame and didn’t want somebody else I didn’t know taking care of me.

3. He’ really good with first time home buyers – I’ve never bought a home before, much less a first home in such an insane and competitive market. Tim broke it all down in simple terms and walked me through everything, step by step. I’m one of those people that needs to understand everything before I sign it, and he would literally sit with me for 2 hours and explain every single piece of paperwork.

4. He really understands the market – Every time I put a bid on a place he would give me a range that he thought it would sell for, and every time it ended up selling within that range. Often I didn’t win the bid because I was bidding slightly less, but he never pushed me to offer more than I was comfortable with.

5. He is just a lovely person! – Tim is just generally a really wonderful person to speak to and shoot the shit with. He’s got a million funny stories about being an agent and dealing with various customers. I always enjoyed going into the office and having a chat with him, even when I was there to just sign paperwork.

In short, Tim is awesome and will certainly be looking him up again when I need to buy or sell again.

We are so happy we decided to work with Tim as first time home buyers in a very competitive market that is SF real estate. Tim’s tenure of experience (15yr+) brought a wealth of knowledge and provided to be crucial in developing our understanding of real estate and the overall search process. Tim is a one man show (no junior or staff), which we preferred when searching for the right agent, so you have to drive the process and truly own it. Throughout our search, Tim was incredibly responsive, attentive and seemingly worked around the clock to deliver for us. Closing was a quick and painless process thanks to his attention to detail and professionalism. We would definitely recommend Tim and look forward to working with him in the future.

Ben L. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I highly recommend Tim if you’re looking to buy your first place. He’s been doing it for a very long time and knows San Francisco like the back of hand; all the new and old developments. Plus he updates himself by religiously attending these Tuesday realtor open houses (talk about doing your homework). During my first condo hunting session with Tim, he took me to visit every possible type of condo. Needless to say, I was overwhelmed and exhausted. But that “orientation” gave Tim a good idea of what I really wanted. He told me afterwards that he usualy stands back and let the other agent do most of talking and question answering so that he can take the time to observe my reaction to each place and the finer details of it. I’ve always thought I would want to live on the upper floors of some new highrise. But it turns out, I prefer a to be closer to the ground in a building with fewer units, which Tim helped me realize after the first day! For the next few hunts, Tim narrowed in on properties that fit what I wanted. I dreaded the fact that it could take months to find a place I wanted. But thanks to the right information presented, it took Tim and me under a month. I ended up with the Radiance in Mission Bay. Tim is very patient and not pushy at all. He will work at your pace. Mine was “let’s not waste time and find me a place NOW!”

Ricky L. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I am SO glad we picked Tim to be our realtor. As first time home buyers, he held our hands through multiple offers, a deal falling through on the final day of escrow (seller’s fault), and seller’s agents who were often completely unresponsive. When we thought that we might stop house hunting altogether due to some financial uncertainty, Tim was really supportive and didn’t try to pressure us to keep looking. But once we settled our finances we did keep looking- and we got a fantastic house. I don’t know how we would have gotten through this without Tim’s help. Plus he’s really nice and funny and you will want that when you are looking at house after house after house.

Kerry L.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I met Tim through a friend who had also purchased a home with Tim’s help. I was a first time home buyer and totally intimidated with the process of buying in sf. Tim’s knowledge of the market and temperament made it much more manageable. He’s a pro and can quickly assess any property with his years of experience. His insight is always on point and he knows everyone in the business. I did most of my own property searches, but Tim was quick to review disclosures and answer questions at any time of day. He remained patient and in the end, I closed on a condo that is now home. I would definitely work with him again.

Robert C. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim’s help was invaluable for a first-time home buyer. When I first reached out to Tim, he responded within a day and we set up a meeting right away. Given the success Tim has, I’m constantly surprised by how responsive he is — never has an email gone unresponded for more than 24 hours. Given that I’m sure he works with clients all over the pricing spectrum, he never made us feel like we were less prized because we were looking for a smaller home size.

I’ve had some friends ask if having a broker is essential. In my opinion, particularly for a first-time buyer, Tim’s advice was very useful especially during the bidding process. He advised us how to approach waiving of conditions, pricing strategy, and what to expect from the seller.

We even asked Tim about renovations and other advice, and he was happy to share his insight as a broker and homeowner himself.

Would absolutely recommend Tim as a broker, particularly for those newer to the market.

Yan K. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim is one of the best real estate agents I have ever worked with. Tim is extremely professional and proficient and he has such a great heart for his clients. He is very focused on getting his clients into their new home and fights for his clients. Tim has a very good reputation and relationships with other agents in the community and sometimes this is instrumental in helping his clients get their offers accepted. He is a very good negotiator!! This market is very competitive and you need an aggressive agent to get you a home. I highly recommend Tim.

Beth L. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim is an amazing realtor who helped us effectively navigate the red hot SF condo real estate market. He gave us amazing advice regarding the true value of properties and we ended in the perfect location in a fabulous condo! Our search took a few months as we wanted to ensure we got great value for $ while also loving the place we purchased. We could not have done it without him.

Jodee S. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim was the absolute ideal agent. As a first-time home-buyer, I had no idea what to expect. Tim answered my endless stream of questions usually within minutes of sending the email. He was an animated and effective partner in this process, always looking out for what I wanted and thinking out of the box. I could not recommend him any more highly to anyone looking to buy in SF, especially first timers like me!

Lucy A. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I’m a first-time homebuyer. I selected Tim based on the review on yelp. He was very quick to reply any of my questions and concerns. I like simple and transparency. Tim was the person who guide me and he never try to push me…he always gave me unbiased opinion. Tim knows all neighborhoods in the city very well. I got condo my condo in my first try in this competitive SF market. He is excellent and one of the best in SF. Thanks, Tim.

Niaz K. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

We were very happy to work with Tim. Being foreigners we had lots of concerns about buying a house in San Francisco. Tim was very patient and answered all our questions and explained all the nuances about the process. We bought a house very quickly and everything went very smoothly. It really helped to have an agent who is so competent and well known among others.

Dalia V. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim recently helped my husband and me sell our house in the Parkside District of SF. He was extremely professional and great to work with in every aspect. Great communicator, very knowledgeable about the housing market and offered sound advice on how to get the most for our house. He was right on the mark that an aggressive listing price would generate tremendous interest. He helped us to get competitive bids on work needed to get the house ready. He brought in multiple (9) offers and our house went for well above asking. My husband and I were very happy with the final price. Tim made what was a very stressful time for our family as smooth as could be with his easy going sense of humor, down to earth but disciplined attitude and professional demeanor. I would recommend Tim to anyone buying or selling in SF.

Sujung K. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

My husband and I used Tim this Spring/Summer 2015 to purchase our first condo. Tim was fantastic! He was quick to respond to emails, easy to get along with and listened carefully to our needs & wants. Tim showed great patience and detail when explaining all the different nuances. Once we closed, Tim continued to be a resource, providing us the names of contractors in the area he liked and respected. We 100% plan to use Tim in the future.

Leslie M. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

My wife and I were evicted after decades in the City and stressed out with the prospect of facing a nearly impossible SF housing market. A friend recommended Tim and from our first meeting we knew he was not only a great human being, but he would be our trusted guide through every step of the process.

Tim has a deep knowledge of San Francisco neighborhoods, home construction, offer strategies and solid relationships with other agents. Most importantly, he is a problem solver who listens. If we had a question, Tim would respond immediately. If we disagreed with a recommendation, Tim took it to heart and we adjusted our goals. We’ve heard of agents who push their clients just to get a sale. Tim is the exact opposite. He gets to know you, and does everything to ensure that the home you buy is perfectly suited to your needs.

When the dust settled, my wife and I were able to buy a cottage in Ingleside and couldn’t be happier. Huge thanks to Tim for all his hard work.

Scott M. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

We recently bought a SF apartment – our first time purchasing – and we couldn’t be more grateful to have had Grant as our broker. He provided invaluable advice and insight at every single step of the way. He’s deeply knowledgeable about all parts of the home buying process (and even many tangentially related topics) and cares deeply about putting his clients in the very best situation that he can. He’s was incredibly attentive and sympathetic to our needs at every stage and went above and beyond to make himself available whenever we needed him.

Paige C. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Finding a home to purchase in SF can be super stressful. Having Tim as your broker helps you keep your sanity.
Based on all the positive Yelp reviews, it goes without saying that Tim has a healthy amount of clients. The great thing about Tim is that he makes you feel like you’re his one and only client. He’s super responsive and will always take the time to answer all your questions and concerns.
The great thing about Tim is that he’ll never try to push his ideas on you. He’ll be honest with you, and give his honest opinion, but never try to push you in one direction or the other.
He’s extremely knowledgable about the city and the market. I would not have been able to get through the whole process without him.
If you’re looking to purchase a new home, call this man!

Jay K. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim was my primary real estate broker for both the sale and a purchase of my primary home in 2008. I owned a tri-level 1,300+ Sq. ft loft in the Dog Patch district of San Francisco and Tim helped me with the sale of the loft. Shortly thereafter, Tim helped me buy a two-unit home in the Mission district of San Francisco. While I had worked with many real estate brokers in my past, Tim was clearly the best agent I worked with. I believe the most important part of being a great broker are his/her knowledge, and his/her promptness in addition to being able to think on his/her feet and to be able to think for the client.
In all of these aspects, Tim was superb. Tim was always available to answer any questions I had, and since sale or purchase of a home is a nerve wracking process, Tim with his knowledge assuaged any worries I had. In addition, I never waited for more than a few hours for Tim to return my call, which for me was very important. When Tim did not have an answer, he promptly researched and got back to me with satisfactory answers. It did not appear to me that Tim took the short cut by telling me an answer which was not properly backed up. In addition, being a SF homeowner himself, he had ideas of what the buyers and sellers are looking for, and gave me proper advice.

Lastly, Tim was always honest, and regarding the price reduction that my loft had to go through, Tim was always up-front, without playing games which I have heard that some brokers play in order to retain a client. I never had to second guess his professional opinion.

I am currently contemplating on selling my house due to a potential job related move, and I will definitely obtain Tim’s help again this time around.

Mori K. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

and had no idea where to start so we searched on Yelp! and came across Tim’s name. All the reviews said he’s really responsive despite how busy he is so that evening we sent him an email through his site and when we woke up the next morning, he’d already gotten back to us to schedule an initial appointment and get more information on what we’re looking for, price range, etc. Right off the bat, we were impressed by how attentive and smart Tim is. He’ll answer as many questions as you have (we had plenty) and never makes you feel like a moron for being a first-time home buyer.

Following the first meeting, he scheduled tours with us to see open houses and talked through each neighborhood’s pros and cons. We really appreciated his honesty; one of the things I was particularly worried about was working with a realtor whose bottom line is just to sell you something…anything. We almost put an offer down on a house that deep down we knew wasn’t right for us but given San Franciso’s market and our impatience, we thought it was as good as it could get. We talked with Tim for a bit over the phone late that night and he ended up talking us out of the offer which validated what we were feeling and also made us feel really good about working with Tim.

Sure enough – a week or so later our dream house came on the market, it was even better at the open house so we decide to make our FIRST offer. Tim walked us through everything, was extremely attentive, and knew that there was going to be a lot of competition for this spot so he helped us make our offer as appealing as possible.

With a little bit of luck and a lot of Tim’s guidance/expertise, we got the house! Our first offer beat 12 others and not because we outbid everyone. Our offer wasn’t even the highest; it was just the best combination of price and terms. Seriously, we owe it all to Tim.

Tim is seriously awesome, hands down. You won’t find a better agent in the city 🙂

K J.

I can only say great things about Tim. Tim spent over a year patiently helping us find the right home.

Here’s what I liked most about Tim:

1) Tim puts his clients interests first. He didn’t attempt to quickly push into a property to get a sale, but worked with us to explore neighborhoods and uncover our must haves.

2) He went above and beyond on service. Tim was always quick to respond if he was unavailable and spent many many hours with us driving around looking at properties. He even found a way to put is in touch with the others in our HOA before we moved in/closed (even though the seller’s agent discouraged this).

3) He provided great objective advice and is a strong negotiator. Tim helped us determine the market value of the properties we were interested in and was frank when he thought homes were priced too high. When we really wanted a property he got our price and worked to get some last minute adjustments when our inspection uncovered an issue.

I couldn’t recommend Tim more highly.

Daniel B. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim is the best agent we could have hoped to work with! My husband and I are first time buyers, and Tim patiently met with us and guided us through each step of the way. Tim was a true pleasure to work with. He is incredibly responsive and emails late into the night, knowledgeable of the city, kind, and just a fun person to spend the afternoon with house-hunting. It says a lot that the sellers we met all said that Tim was a great guy (and nearly all of them knew him by name!) We made several offers and spent nearly half a year before finding our home, and Tim never pushed us to hurry along in our search. Tim had a colleague check in on us when he was on vacation, and has provided life-saving recommendations for loan agents, contractors, etc. It was also a nice gesture that when we first got to the house, there was a bottle of champagne and a card waiting for us! Anyone looking for a house in San Francisco should definitely give Tim a call!

Joanna W. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim is the best realtor I have had yet- this is my second real estate transaction in San Francisco. He helped me buy a house Fall 2013 in the crazy San Francisco housing market. He went to all the open houses of any house that remotely fit my criteria and gave me really sound advice- stay away from the super staged, cute, overbid houses and look for the places that don’t show well but have good bones. I closed on a house with a bay view, paid asking, got money back for repairs, all with 3% down. Everytime I needed to sign something or provide info he would email me and follow up- he is super organized so I did not need to be. Other realtors laughed when I told them I did not have tons of down payment and told me that without a huge cash payment that I would not have a chance- not Tim and he got the deal done. I would recommend him to any buyers out there- he’s that good.

Kathy A. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim helped me find my loft back in November of 2013. I worked with other agents prior to Tim but I have to say that I was glad to have found him. Tim is undoubtedly busy but it always seemed as though I was his only client. The level of attention and assistance in the home-buying process which I received from Tim was exceptional. I highly recommend him if you are in the market for a home in San Francisco.

Steve Y. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Our banker recommended Tim, our friends validated Tim, and all of Yelp keeps endorsing Tim, so we didn’t think twice, we called Tim and asked him the impossible: “Help us buy a single family home with an in-law expansion in the world’s hottest market, all under $1M”.

And as of yesterday, Tim dropped by our condo to give us the key to a massive house we never thought we could own in this hot market. We could not be happier!!!

How did he do it? He’s hyper-patient, never pushes you to a decision, knows what every house will sell for, helps you place a bid you’re comfortable with and avoids participating in bidding wars, but rather focuses on getting you the house you truly want at the price that’s actually worth it. It of course helps a ton that every other realtor in the market respects Tim and knows that he chooses his clients well.

It did not stop here: Tim introduced us to several bankers and helped us get an unbeatable mortgage rate, he introduced us to very qualified general contractors who will work with us to upgrade the house, and he gave us priceless advice on market trends for renovations that will add value to the house if we ever were to put it back on the market.

We wholeheartedly recommend any serious buyer or seller to contact Tim.

Thank you for this incredible journey Tim.

Payman N.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

We are so thankful we found Tim on Yelp with his stellar 5 star reviews. As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and Tim was extremely thorough, spending a lot of time with us in person, over emails and phone (he’s VERY fast in responding to emails). He taught us so many things we would never have thought of, what to watch out for, what to expect, what the market is doing, etc. Tim knows the development of the neighborhoods and how they’re emerging, so he can provide great feedback on each part of the city. We became very proactive ourselves and went to open houses every weekend, but this is only after Tim shared his knowledge with us so that we know what to look for. We gave him detailed feedback after each house so he knew what would be a great fit. Average seek time in SF is about a year before finding a home, but he was able to help us find the perfect place in 3 months within our price range!

Even after closing, we had questions and he was always willing to help out. Wonderful, personable, funny… a good, honest agent. We highly recommend Tim and will definitely reach out to him if we are selling or buying another home.

Jennifer C. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim helped my wife and I buy our first home in the city. We could not have asked for a better person to work with throughout the process. Tim was patient, super responsive, and very flexible. We had a busy schedule and couldn’t make it out to too many open houses so he would send us his recommendations that matched exactly with what we were looking for. He even took us out on tours in the east bay when we weren’t sure which side of the bridge to choose! We went from first offer to home ownership in less than 2 months. There’s a reason Tim has all these amazing reviews– he’s just that good! Without a doubt, we expect to work with Tim again when we’re ready for our next investment.

Dan A. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim was super helpful in helping me purchase a condo. I took my time (about a year) but he was very patient and continually answering any questions I had. He even took care of my purchase while on vacation.

I would definitely recommend him to anyone purchasing a place in the area. Plus he has one of the coolest names I’ve ever come across.

Tim S. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim is a clear-eyed beacon in an industry that can be full of misrepresentation and downright falsehoods. There is so much noise to work through when considering a major purchase like real estate that having a calm, experienced and thoroughly knowledgeable counselor is an invaluable asset. My wife and I spent years looking for the right property and Tim was with us for every step. There was never any pressure and he answered every question, no matter how trivial or basic. He’s a man who has the long view and realizes that, when the right situation presents itself, a deal will happen. He spent the first part of his life as an elementary school teacher and he has carried with him a wonderful sense of sharing his knowledge with grace and kindness. He also has a terrific sense of humor which is a godsend when things get stressful. I wish I could have a Tim Gullicksen helping me for all my major decisions in life.

Robert T. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim G. was wonderful and so patient during our year-long search for a house in this insane market. At the end, he helped find a perfect house for our growing family. His client service was great and he responded to emails, texts, and calls at all hours.
He’s very knowledgeable about the housing market and the various neighborhoods.
I would definitely recommend Tim to my friends and family – thumbs up!
Thank you again for helping us find our beautiful home!

Emmy H. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

We started working with Tim over a year ago trying to find the light amongst the chaos that is the SF housing market. We put in several offers and it just never worked out. Tim had always come with us to check out properties and offer his opinion. As everyone else had mentioned, he answers emails extremely promptly which is also a plus. At one point, we honestly just gave up because things weren’t in our budget and we didn’t want to settle. Tim will provide you a report of houses weekly but we preferred Redfin. That’s where one day, we found our future home. That would be our only disappointment because we wish Tim would have found it for us but he had always sent us properties he thought would work for us. The really great thing about Tim is that he’s very helpful for a first time homebuyer. His inspector was great and the people he works with were also very quick.

The best thing about Tim is when we were going to several open houses, other realtors knew who he was and his reputation. That speaks volumes and we were happy to work with the best. Highly recommended and just a really good person to work with. Thanks Tim for your help to buy our first home 🙂

A J. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim is a leader in the real estate industry, and he truly GETS the market out here in the bay area. I was impressed at how well he understands the strategy and what it takes to get a house.

I cannot say how thankful I am to have given the privilege to work with Tim! If I get the chance in the future I will certainly work with Tim again. Some qualities that I greatly admired through the process were:

Being easy going to work with, but firm on the process when we had to be.
Listened to my wants and needs but grounded me in reality, which I am thankful for.
Above all, Tim’s genuine personality and sensibility for the process put my mind at ease.

For someone who had no clue how the market worked out here in the Bay Area, Tim sure did a fantastic job explaining the process and finding me a fabulous home!

Chuck L. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tim was professional, extremely responsive, honest and a delight to work with. We were new to home buying and Tim provided a low-pressure, learning environment guiding us through the process. He is knowledgable about the entire Bay Area market and can quickly point out details that you may overlook. We have recommended him to several of our friends already and would be happy to work with him again.

Barrett C. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

We were lucky enough to get Tim as our realtor. Tim is a rare find. Trustworthy, capable and resilient are some words that come to mind.

All the other positive reviews here cover the basics, Tim knows what he is doing and is a great person. What we want to make clear is that Tim will stick it out with you even when the going gets tough. After some failed offers and many viewings (so many..), we decided to make an offer on a foreclosed property. Tim navigated us for months through the craziness of constant contract changes, inspections, figuring out potential renovation costs, and continuous doubt about whether we would actually ever close. Throughout the process he kept us informed and lead us as a team. He was truly amazing.

We feel like we could happily go on and on about Tim. But to cut straight to it, we want to say that Tim will always be a special person to our family. When we so often over the years didn’t think it would be possible, he helped us secure a permanent home in San Francisco.

Thank you!
Steven, Kelly & Sidney

Steven G. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

So I had this crazy idea to purchase a home in San Francisco. Thanks to Tim we found our home within 2 months and moved in by the end of 3. Unheard of!

Tim is:
* Strategic – knows how to use time (yours and his) most effectively during the search and positions offers as attractively as possible.
* Thorough – responds to every single question, finds and summarizes listings matching your criteria, reads through and summarizes every disclosure package.
* Responsive – answers emails within 24 hrs (usually much less)
* Knowledgeable – leverages his experience and knowledge of the process to guide you over hurdles and ambiguities. He also knows exactly how much a property will sell for.
* Hilarious – keeps it light and stays positive through a stressful and frustrating process
* Honest – manages expectations
* Professional – As young first time home buyers, Tim took us seriously. We always felt like his only client.
* A Closer – Tim got our offer accepted even with a higher offer on the table

We couldn’t have done this without Tim.

Zack C. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

From the start Tim was very realistic and forward about what to expect and how to approach the crazy housing market in the Bay Area. Tim was always readily on-hand for questions/concerns/followups/etc! We never felt rushed or pressured to make any decisions and Tim provided us with good tools and insight on what to look for. We had some complications with our loan and Tim was able to step in and help mediate/guide us through that process. Tim was a great agent, always professional and using him was one of the best decisions we made in our housing search!

Thanks Tim!

Sam L. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

tim gullicksen was fantastic from the start of our search all the way through our purchase…7 months later…san francisco is a difficult market for home buyers to navigate, having tim’s expertise made all the difference. tim never told us “no” or discouraged us in any way…he took the parameters he was given and made sure we were aware of every available opportunity…not just his choices. tim’s personal service is great and comforting as is his very pleasant attitude. i have recommended tim to many of my friends and would recommend him to anyone!

Daniel G. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

My husband and I met Tim at the end of December 2014 and four months later we were home owners. I like to think that what helped us obtain a home within four months was the excellent team we built together with Tim and our real-estate broker (which Tim recommended us to). Here are the top three things I tell our friends about Tim:

First, Tim is the most attentive and responsive person I have ever worked with! He is there for you 24/7. Meaning, if you have a question via email or by phone you are bound to hear from Tim within minutes or tops a few hours. Yes, I know we all read emails but how many times do we put aside an email after we have read it. Well Tim, reads your email and responds to all your questions and comments. Given how competitive the real estate market is in SF, having someone like Tim, be on top of any inquiries you have is a deal maker.

Second, Tim is remarkably well known in the SF real estate market, several times we heard from the selling realtors on how pleasant it had been to work with him in prior deals. Indeed, when we closed on our condo – Tim explained all the paperwork, provided seamless signature requests and was on time to conclude on the final deal.

Lastly, what I also appreciated about Tim was his knowledge and expertise of the SF real estate market – we placed a few bids during our search. It was with Tim’s help that we got to be good at assessing the market value of a property and recognizing properties’ opportunistic value. He guided us with comparables, provided us with final sale values of prior bids and shared his own perspective on properties that although did not have all of our must haves had other selling points to consider.

Overall, we could not be happier with our Victorian condo. We appreciate all the hard work Tim put into our home search and look forward to continue to recommend him to our friends searching for SF real estate.

Rocio S. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

We closed on our new home in April of this year, so this review is long overdue. In my opinion, it is essential to have the utmost trust not just in the expertise of your agent, but also in his or her character. Throughout the entire process, Tim blew us away with his attentiveness, patience, and expert advice. As would be expected, we had a ton of questions about both the process and potential listings we were interested in. Tim always gave answers and advice that clearly showed his singular focus was on helping us find the right home, and not just trying to get a deal done. He has the knowledge and experience to bring an objective and calm perspective to what is otherwise a tense and emotional process for buyers. We never felt he was pushing us when it came to making important decisions (whether or not to submit an offer, how much to offer, and even whether or not to counter, when that situation arose for us). Even without any pressure, we trusted his opinions and that made the decisions come a lot easier.

On a final note, I always wondered how important the agent’s reputation was when it came down to submitting an offer. Every listing agent knew of Tim and had only great things to say about him. This includes the listing agent of the home for which our offer was accepted, and I have no doubt that Tim’s representation helped us against a VERY close competing offer.

We will undoubtedly be counting on Tim for any future real estate deals. If you’re looking for an agent, look no further!

We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor than Tim to help guide us through the process of purchasing our home back in March 2015, particularly as first time home buyers and east coast transplants who were completely unaware of the crazy dynamic that buyers face in San Francisco. Tim was patient and supportive as we went through the learning process. Like anyone who has battlescars from trying to buy a home in the city, we put in multiple offers before one of our bids was accepted. Most importantly, he gave us candid feedback on our offers but he never pressured us to bid more than we were comfortable with. He also was on top of the details – reviewing disclosure packages in a timely manner and pre-arranging inspections (for those occasions where we had contingencies). He’s a seasoned realtor but is very easy to deal with and is well liked in the community as he was instrumental in working with the listing agent to get us into our dream home. Tim is highly recommended for anyone looking to buy a place in San Francisco!

Had a wonderful experience dealing with Tim. He gave us a lot of insight into the pros and cons of various neighborhoods, and helped us to locate the ideal San Francisco property. His advice as to the deal was spot on. I have closed escrows about 10 times in my life, and I have to say, this was by far the smoothest I’ve ever encountered. Highly recommended!

If we had to do it again, we would do it with Tim.

My wife and I had a very particular type of property in mind. We found two ads on Redfin in our price range. When we went to see the first one, Tim told us that it will go for much more than the asking price. The listing agent of the second was not returning calls and e-mails, but Tim’s persistence paid off. When we finally saw it, Tim told us it will go for less and we can be bold. We made a low offer on this second, and after some bickering got it for a very good bargain. Tim’s feeling for the price saved us at least a hundred thousand, and may be much more. And the first one? It was sold for 2.5 times the asking price.

Few things about Tim. He is very quick to respond, unless he is with a client of course. I don’t think there was a question that he didn’t respond to the same day. His responses were always insightful, informative and to the point. He is not pushy at all and will not tell you what he thinks unless you ask. He is a pleasant person to deal with, which is a nice bonus.

Moreover, sellers agent gave wrong information to the escrow company, and the difference was worth a few thousand bucks. When we found out, the deal was closed and Tim had no financial interest in helping us. Yet he put a good effort into that, and we got all the difference refunded within a couple of weeks.

We had only one issue with Tim. During the contingency period he went on vacation, notifying us only a day before he left. His business partner helped us while he was away. While he was gone we hit some problems, and they were difficult to resolve with another agent, who didn’t have a deep knowledge of the situation’s background. So if you go for Tim (which I highly recommend), make sure you know his vacation plans in advance.

Tim is a top notch agent. He has helped me both purchase and sell properties in San Francisco, and I wouldn’t use anyone else. He’s friendly, professional, extremely responsive, and super knowledgable about real estate and the intricacies of the fast-paced SF market. He also has a lot of trade friends – highly recommended

Tim Gullicksen is a true professional in every sense of the word. He is extremely knowledgeable, communicative, and — most importantly — he puts your interests first. Unlike many other real estate agents, who pressure you to buy houses that are out of your price range, Tim listens to your needs and wants you to find the house that is perfect for you as well as realistically affordable.

During our first meeting, we ran through a list of needs and wants for our first home. We targeted a price range, neighborhoods, discussed square footage, etc. Here Tim’s market knowledge really shines. He has a very good idea of the real value of a property and gave words of wisdom when he said that sometimes you will lose a bid, but that’s OK, because the winner is paying too much!

As we went through the bidding process and the whirlwind closing process, Tim’s responsiveness with email really shined. He answered many emails within minutes, even when it was sent past midnight or at 6 a.m. I’m not sure when the guy sleeps!

And to top it all off, he’s a really friendly, charming guy. Looking at houses with him is like house hunting with a good friend, who just happens to be extremely knowledgeable about real estate!

So if you or anyone you know is looking for a house in San Francisco or the peninsula, definitely call Tim! He’s a keeper!

I recently sold a condo in SF and Tim worked tirelessly on my behalf. If you have ever sold property and felt that you weren’t sure what the realtor actually did to earn his or her commission, you will not feel that way with Tim. He worked doggedly and earned every penny! I was frustrated that half the commission had to go to the buyer’s agent because I felt he deserved it far more. I was selling a tiny unit in Low Pac Heights. He recommended that we update it which was something that simply sounded like a lot of work and hassle to me. Well, it was a lot of work but he handled every detail of it. He dealt with the HOA, with the contractors and stagers, he even fronted the cash for it so that I had no out of pocket expense and could instead reimburse him from the sale proceeds at closing. He dealt with many an HOA headache and demand. He kept me informed throughout the process. And he got me the best possible price. He is savvy, experienced and he really knows the nuances of the SF market. I would highly recommend him. He is the best realtor I have have ever worked with.

Second AND third time’s the charm… Tim helped me find my first San Francisco property, a condo in Potrero Hill, some five years back during much slower times. Now, in today’s crazy property market, he not only helped me and my partner sell the same place at a terrific price, but also facilitated our finding a new place, a home in Ingleside in a fabulous location for this emerging neighborhood. Tim’s research and facts are on point as always, and he makes for a most knowledgeable navigator of the market in this ever-changing city.
