    Tim McGee


    Growing up, I specifically remember dreaming of seeing my name on a sign in someone's front yard. I find nothing more gratifying than helping someone sell their current home or purchase their next home, because I know that with that new home comes new memories. I devote more time to my clients than the typical agent, ensuring that they are well-taken care of and every need is met and then exceeded. The experience you will have with me as your agent is second to none. I have an enthusiasm for life and for my career that drives me to become better at the art of real estate every day. When I am not working hard for my clients, I am spending time with my family, working out, or watching sports. Tim McGee reviews Tim McGee on Zillow

    March - 2017 - Tim McGee - Agent of the Month from VRLY on Vimeo.

    Here are some testimonials from my past clients... "We would like to thank Tim McGee for his exceptional job in marketing and selling our home in less than TWO WEEKS. In a challenging real estate market Tim got the job done quickly and professionally. Thanks!" -Chris and Laura S. "When I started searching for homes online Tim was the first person to contact me regarding my search for a home. He listened to what I was wanting in a home and within a day sent me links to a variety of homes matching my criteria. This was extremely helpful in narrowing down the homes I wanted to physically see. Tim was extremely helpful when we were looking at the homes I was interested in. He was able to provide insights on the homes and other valuable information. Although difficult at the time, Tim forced us to evaluate and rate each home we looked at. In the end this was extremely valuable in determining which home(s) we were most interested in. As a first time home buyer Tim provided invaluable advice and assistance walking me through the home buying and closing process. He was more than willing to contact my lending bank/agency in order to get documents completed correctly and on time. Overall, Tim was extremely helpful and more than willing to go the extra mile for me. His attitude and demeanor made the home buying process exciting and enjoyable for me." -Justin P "My family and I moved to Atlanta in November and needed to sell our home in Nebraska while living 1,000 miles away. This could have been stressful were it not for Tim. Tim actively worked to sell our home in a tough market during the cold Winter months. We trusted Tim with the details – both large and small – and were not disappointed. The marketing of our house was excellent with our home selling quickly! I am very grateful that we had Tim as our realtor and I would recommend him to anyone without reservation." -David F "...Tim McGee was a fantastic Real Estate Agent. His ability to make our listing prominent and visible was unmatched. Our home was shown to over 40 couples and ultimately sold within 2 weeks of listing for full price! Tim also helped us purchase another home once ours sold. We were able to get the house we wanted because Tim went the extra mile to allow us to see the home immediately upon our interest thus beating the competition on a great listing. Tim was responsive to communication, available to take calls at any moment, and well aware of current market trends during the process. We give him a A and would definitely use him again in the future..." -Jason and Courtney H. "Tim was great! With busy careers and a one year old, our schedules weren't always flexible. Yet Tim made it work! He was available day, evening and weekends. We were on a mission to buy the perfect new home and sell our current home. Through the many homes we looked at, Tim never pressured us - he was just as invested in finding us the right home as we were and we couldn't have been more grateful. He was very patient and informative. Once we did find our new home, Tim didn't disappear. He has been a great resource for questions and support...alleviating so much stress that home buying and selling can cause! Plus, our current home sold in just 3 weeks!" -Patrick and Melissa S. "I have worked with a few real estate agents and I have to say that Tim is the best by far! He is personable. He communicates openly. He is an agent that keeps things moving to get the job done!" -Jodi F.
