I interviewed several real estate agents prior to selecting Tim and his team. Tim stood out as the only agent that had any idea about market trends. The rest just pulled out a bunch of comps that, by their own admission, didn't fit match our house. Tim, one the other hand, spoke about local market trends and internet marketing. His approach was analytical not just a printout dumped out by some realty company's computer program. Tim and Barbara had to deal with a difficult situation with my divorce as is so often the case of selling a house. I can't tell you how appreciative I am for their consistent professionalism and patience as we got the house staged which lead directly to an offer. And to my surprise, the inspection and escrow was absolutely painless. I was waiting for a huge pile of paperwork but a few e-signatures later and a short office visit was all that was necessary. Selling a house it today's highly volatile and every changing marketplace is not something I would trust with someone just good at sales. Instead, I went with someone of intelligence and someone that understood my needs. I'm very happy about my decision to go with Tim and his team. - Bryan Aamot
As a Realtor myself (Michigan), I always strive to exceed expectations of my clients. Going the extra mile for clients only enhances their experience and provides clients with an opportunity to promote and recommend me to others. Tim Majka was a perfect fit. Not only did he go the extra mile, but his knowledge and expertise in the Lakewood, CA market was spot on! He was very responsive in his communication and I trusted every bit of his advice. I have to plug his assistant, Barb Espinoza, as well. She was fantastic and a HUGE help in putting our sale together. I HIGHLY recommend Tim for all of your real estate needs! - Brad Ditmar, Licensed Realtor (Michigan)
Before choosing Tim we had interviewed a bunch of other realtors. We chose Tim based on his professionalism and commitment. In the end, our home sold within the first week for over asking price and we received multiple offers. Tim really impressed us. We would recommend him to our friends. - Terry Lazar
Tim is a very dedicated real estate professional, even on his wedding day he took time out to ensure that our move in was going smoothly. He brings a wealth of knowledge in real estate and would look to him for any future real estate transaction. - Reymund and Andrea Dumlao
This is my third transaction with Tim. I am not planning on finding another realtor. I am truly lucky that he was working for me. His legal background had me protected on a very difficult transaction - and I never felt like he didn’t have my absolute best interest at heart. Thank you! - William Shaw
The best realtor I could have hoped for. Patient, professional, personable. - Susanna Donovan
Tim is great. I trust him with all of my real estate needs. I used him as my realtor for the purchase of my very first home. Recently, he helped me with the sale of my second home. Tim is not the only realtor that I know. However, he is the most professional and he gets the job done. - Deborah Williams
Tim went above and beyond in helping us to buy our first home. He helped to navigate us through the confusing, ever changing, and sometimes frustrating home buying process. He also helped us get through a nightmarish situation with little inconvenience. Tim will get all our referrals. - Jason & Angela Jackson
Very responsive, supportive and passionate sales team. I worked with Tim remotely from another state on a home sale in Long Beach California. With their help, the property generated multiple offers and was sold expeditiously. - Crystal Ann Mitchell
Tim Majka is always there to help with any questions or paper work regarding my house even after I have purchased my second home from him seven years ago. There is no task too small that he will assist you with. I always hear people saying that after they purchase their home from their real estate broker they never hear from them again. Not with Tim, he is just a phone call away. Weather if it's paper work you don't understand that you receive or need to fill out, or negotiating with the bank to lower your payment. - Irene Swanson
Tim is the most knowledgeable Realtor that we have met. He helped find us find our first home and we purchased it before all home prices went up! When our family grew and it was time to purchase a larger home, we went straight to Tim for home #2. He is skilled at negotiating price and an expertise in real estate. Since he is also an attorney, he is excellent when navigating contracts and escrow. He is patient and will show you around as many homes as you need until you find your dream home! The only Realtor we work with! - Genie Sloan Pena
We have used Tim for two home purchases in the last few years. Our first home purchase took nearly 18 months and involved many offers and negotiations until we finally found the right property. I believe we put in at least 8 offers on 8 different homes until we purchased in Seal Beach. Tim and his team were always there for us when we'd fly in to check homes out and to tour around with us. I found Tim to be not only very patient with us but also very professional, smart and savvy about the market and the neighborhoods we were interested in. Normally I'd say that I'd use him again but we already have used Tim for another home purchase. So I'd definitely use him a third time. - Jackson Shaw
Tim was truly the perfect person to work with us on the short-sale of our condo. It was a very frustrating and disappointing time of our lives and we really needed someone like Tim to come alongside us with his patience and confidence. - Kelly Virtue
Tim was great to work with! Being a first time home buyer I had many questions and didn't really know what I wanted. Tim was very patient as we looked at house after house until we found the perfect one that fit all my needs. His extensive knowledge of real estate and his background as a lawyer were also a huge plus. He worked with me from financing to closing of this long, nerve- racking process and made it actually enjoyable. - Courtney Cook
Tim is absolutely the BEST! We are very lucky to have him helping us in our home buying search. It took us exactly one year from the time we started looking to getting the key to the Condo unit. Our situation is very different from the locals, as I am living in Canada buying a Condo for my son in LA. We started with no experience in the CA housing market, unfamiliar with the local laws, requirements, regulations, and quite apprehensive in this venture. Apprehension is the reason why it took one year from searching to closing the deal. Tim was always very professional in his work/approach - patient and never pushy, responded to our enquiries/questions in detail, called long distance to alert/explain when necessary. He worked hard on our deal even though it was a low budget deal (I have a lot of respect for a real estate agent like that). He gave us the information so we could make decisions. We started with not wanting short sales but with Tim's guidance and hard work, we eventually bought a Condo that was on short sale. I am quite happy with the price paid and my son is quite happy with the unit I bought for him. We cannot say enough good words re our experience with Tim. I know for sure there is no real estate agent like Tim here in Canada! Tim is simply outstanding and the BEST! - Estella Yeung
I would recommend using Tim for all real estate transactions. He has been successful in selling two of my homes. I will definitely call Tim when I am ready to purchase again. - Dana Rogers
Buying my first home from Tim was a great experience. My parents used to both sell real estate and I had a little experience with that world and I have to say that Tim was the best. He also handled the sale of my home and I can't thank him enough for all of the hard work and time he put into the sale (it was a short sell unfortunately). I've recommended Tim to many people and if and when my partner and I decide to buy a home - Tim will definitely get my business! Thanks! - Rick Palmer
Tim is very knowledgable about real estate in the area. He has provided good advice, has guided me to make the best decisions for myself and he has been extremely patient. He's worked with me for over 2 years in helping me decide what to do with my property and eventually ending in short sale. He never made me feel bad about having to do a short sale, and he always had a positive outlook and kept me moving forward. Tim was a lifesaver to me and I am so grateful for his hard work and perseverance. - Kalanie Redmayne
I have worked on several transactions with Tim in the past and we recently closed a transaction that was not the easiest to close. The property was located in a small condo complex and the new president of the association did not have access to any of the required paperwork needed for the underwriter to approve the condo for financing. When I presented this challenge to Tim, he unwaveringly took on the challenge and we worked side by side to help the association complete the required documentation. This process took approximately 3 weeks and Tim was instrumental in keeping all parties calm during this process. Not all agents are the same and I guarantee, if it wasn’t for Tim’s effective communication, this transaction would not have closed. At the end of this transaction, the listing agent, seller and buyer could not be happier with the end result. What I have really been impressed about Tim in all my transactions with him, is his ability to stay laser focused and his ability to negotiate a win / win situation for all parties involved. - Steve Hankla, New American Funding
During my time working with Tim, I've been impressed by the extensive expertise he brings to a wide range of real estate transactions. While helping clients find the best property to suit their needs, he has also repeatedly helped them to use real estate to achieve their long term financial goals. I encourage you to put Tim’s skills to work for you! I’m happy to be a part of his team! - Holli Applegate, Lawyer’s Title
