As real estate entrepreneurs, investors, and Realtors, Tim and Ryan value continuing their service, an extention of their time serving abroad in the U.S. Navy. Now serving their clients, discovering their needs and tastes, working hard leveraging their full-time marketing, design, and creative team, they have exceeded seller's expectations every time, netting them well over list price. Their passion and specialty is helping homeowners, especially Veterans, maximize the value of their home for sale, through consulting on ways to maximize their return on investment. They also love helping buyers who want to live a Silicon Valley homeowner lifestyle without bearing the full costs of Silicon Valley home ownership. Always striving to build and maintain long-term relationships with clients long after the purchase or sale of a home, clients have praised them on the instant accessibility and prompt responses to each client's concerns and needs. Local community neighbors routinely reach out to them as a point of contact for recommendations and referrals for their real estate needs.
As early as their first days in the business and now, Tim and Ryan, Listings Specialists, apply groundbreaking techniques to real estate marketing and business development. Check out their property-specific marketing to see for yourself just how much of a difference it makes for buyers. “I’ve always been an early adopter, I pour myself into my career and do as much education and research as I can in order to stand out, especially when it comes to negotiations,” says Tim, who holds a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree. Ryan mentions, “I’ve done things differently than other agents for a long time, marketing from the ground up and staying ahead of the curve. As other agents grow frustrated with the surge of technology, I embrace it, educate myself regularly and implement what I learn. I thrive on giving my clients what, unfortunately, most fail to. I run my business like a business, not a part-time hobby, which equals happy clients!”
Their multiple credentials and their consultative approach to client relations prove that, if there’s something to learn, Tim and Ryan will embrace it. Fortunately, they don’t keep the education to themselves, “I’m in the process of developing a training program for real estate agents around the country,” Ryan says, explaining that in 2018 they conducted in-person seminars for first-time home buyers and helped educate other REALTORS on the topic of online marketing properties for sale. After all, he says it’s more important now than ever for buyers and sellers to hire experienced, trained agents. “The more every agent knows, the better off every client and agent will be,” he says. “And the better job each agent does with marketing and selling homes, the better we all do; a rising tide floats all ships.”
Tim and Ryan place such great importance on marketing that they have three dedicated full-time staff members dedicated to marketing, to include a digital marketer and a marketing specialist — including Armo, a professional full-time videographer. They also hire two specialists that help optimize the various Social Media platforms and help target buyers who are also looking to sell, helping target market to the masses. “I market my homes as if every home is a million dollar listing or more,” says Ryan, noting that every house gets the full ‘Lifestyle’ package, whether priced at $500,000 or $2 million plus. Before a home is listed, Tim & Ryan pay for staging and interior design and provide a digital marketing platform that continues to be refined. “Our digital marketing gets the maximum exposure with SEO techniques and enhanced online placements. We’re also doing target marketing and text-message marketing. We create specific Landing Pages to attract buyers in a unique manner.” From professional 4K photography, videography, and aerial drone footage; their team then produces property-specific websites and four-page highest-quality color brochures, boosting these out to prospective buyers by investing in Facebook Ads targeting the local and international buyer pool.
All of this effort helps achieve their primary goal – happy clients. “I love being able to educate clients and to help people,” Ryan says. “It’s about the person, not the money. Around our office we say, ‘People before things,’ and we know that as long as we’re taking great care of people, the best will come.” Having sold more than 500 homes, their vast experience enables them to be proactive, not reactive, during each transaction. “We’ve been in this business more than 20 years combined and closed so many deals that we know what can go wrong…” Ryan says with a self-deprecating laugh. Tim and his team create the best possible outcomes with the utmost professionalism. Clients notice, sharing that the experience of working with Tim and Ryan is smoother and more enjoyable than they have ever experienced with other agents. As a result, clients spread the word about Tim and Ryan as can be seen from the number of lasting relationships.
And despite how involved they are as a top agent team, they still devote energy to supporting the Santa Clara community. Working by referral allows them to devote time, effort, and energy engaging with their former and future clients.
We also look for any opportunity to assist prior and current military personnel with relocating. “I want to keep helping people however I can, but nothing is as dear to me as working with the military veterans looking to relocate. It reminds me of my previous Navy days and I get a kick out of it” he says, echoing a running theme behind their success.
