"Tim was with us EVERY step of the process of selling our home. His knowledge, attention to detail, access to trusted resources and hard working hustle to show our home in the best possible light were indispensable in the process.
He ensured that the home be move-in ready for the next owner, as well, including updates to meet the highest home inspection standards.
Tim gladly adapted to the client's required level of communication and sometimes daily assurance in what can be a stressful process.
We are now very happily sharing the same home in RVA - after 5 years of commuting back & forth- thanks to Tim! He has our highest recommendations."

"World class realtor! Absolute top notch in every respect. He truly has the best interest of the buyer at heart. Tim was able to assist me in purchasing a home while I was in a separate state. He explained every question I had thoroughly and warned me of specific hazards to home buying only an experienced realtor would know. He made the whole process simple, and fast. Tim has my highest recommendations!"

"We chose Tim to represent us as buyers. We knew of his great reputation and honesty. He worked diligently to find the right place for us. He fine tuned our search by eliminating less desirable properties and focusing on our likes and needs. I was thankful to have him help me with the detailed walk thru after our bid was accepted. Tim even helped with suggestions for updating the kitchen. We highly recommend Tim Thornton for your real estate search. Tim guided us through the closing and with the back and forth negotiations that clinched our deal. Thanks Tim and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Towne Realty."

"Last summer, my wife and I decided to buy a home in Hampton Roads. We were moving from out-of-state, and had only a few contacts in the area - so, home hunting was a daunting task. Our distance, purchase timeline (and my own trust deficit of real estate agents) was further complicating the situation. I was optimistic, but still cautious when we were referred by a colleague/friend to Tim Thornton, at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services. Over weeks and months of searching for 'our' house, Tim was a steady, professional guide. He worked with us via email and phone, listening to our own 'wants and needs' while sorting through hundreds of property listings - all while we were still in Massachusetts. Tim really pulled out the stops when we arrived in Virginia for our first 'boots on ground' house tours. He planned a clockwork two day house tour itinerary, complete with information binders with tabs for each home we would see. He was by our side non-stop for 2 days. It was IMPRESSIVE; I had never seen anybody in real estate make that kind of effort - let alone for a guy he had only spoken to on the phone. When we finally found our house, it had gone under agreement with another buyer earlier that day. Tim got me in for a tour anyways - and I fell in love with the house and neighborhood. We placed a back-up offer that night (around 930pm) which was accepted! And now the real work began... He continued to advocate very effectively for us through the inspection, negotiation and closing. I honestly feel that he earned every cent of his commission, and represented us with no failings (even though his newborn son was also competing for his attention during this process!) If you are shopping for a home in the Virginia Beach area, Tim deserves your consideration. I can't say enough good things about him ! (and I used to hate Realtors!)"

"Tim Thornton "did his homework"! He knew the homes that were comparable to ours, going through each room to show similarities and differences. Tim has a list of professionals for each part of the home. We had some professionals, like our electrician, with whom we were very happy, but when we needed assistance to find a roofer, plumber or painter, Tim gave us names. The people on his list were always knowledgeable, professional and their prices were fair. If we couldn't be at the house to let a worker in, Tim would go to the house and stay until his professional was finished. Tim wanted the best for us and we felt he worked very hard for us. We will recommend Tim to our friends."

"Our experience with Tim was nothing short of amazing. As first time homebuyers, we were new to the whole process and nervous, but Tim got us through each step of the process easily. He was so readily available at anytime to answer texts and any questions we may have had. He made the experience personal and enjoyable. He made us feel like his only clients, even though we weren't buying an expensive home. Anyone would be lucky to have Tim as their realtor!"
Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Bromley, Norfolk, VA.
"My wife and I were first time homeowners in Norfolk, VA. We had not planned to sell our home, but when we needed to do so, a good friend highly recommended Tim Thornton. From the very first meeting, Tim clearly and accurately laid out for us the process and options for the home sale. He knew well those people we would need to be in contact with and all of the legal procedures and paperwork involved. He clarified for us anything that happened during the process that was of concern. Though it was a seller's market, it turned out houses similar to ours had sold for a lower price than we were hoping for. Tim clearly explained our option and possible scenarios if we decided to go higher than the area market or meet the market average. Once we made the decision, Time made certain the house had the best possible listing. Once the house listed, we had an offer from a buyer for the price we were asking within less than five days! We were very happy about the selling process and the results of the sale. We strongly recommend Tim Thornton as a realtor to work with if you want to buy or sell a home."

He was fantastic!"

"I was so fortunate to have Tim as my realtor. When making such a large decision, I wanted to work with someone that I could trust. Tim was there every step of the way. He always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. His professionalism, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic were much respected and appreciated. I never felt that he was just trying to sell me a house, but that he was a mentor to answer my questions and help me to make the best decision for my family. I purchased my first house and with his help, he made me feel comfortable through the whole process. He went above and beyond and exceed all expectations."

"Tim helped us find a home to relocate to. He is very knowledgeable of the local real estate market and specific neighborhoods, as well as local, state and federal regulations and requirements. He is knowledgeable, responsive and assertive, and made sure we were always well represented throughout the home buying process. When we purchased our home, he kept us updated, usually on a daily basis, of progress on negotiations, as was always there to represent our interests in all aspects of the process. I would highly recommend Tim. He exceeded our expectations."
Bought a home in 2016 in US Navy Little Creek Amphibious Base, Virginia Beach, VA 23518.
"We met Tim at an open house and were impressed with his knowledge and honesty about the property for sale. Our experiences with real estate agents have been both good and bad. We were interested in finding a buyers agent, but very leary about the process. Agents in the past have showed us properties outside our price range, wasted our time with properties that did not meet our criteria, and took actions on our behalf that were not in our best interest. We both liked Tim; felt like he was a very authentic person and decided to ask him to be our buyers agent. He spent a great deal of time insuring that we understood his contract and he continued to dedicate his valuable time to us on every step of our buying process. I cannot think of a single time when he was not proactive and responsive. His services have been invaluable and we would not hesitate to work with him again. We are now enjoying our beautiful new home at East Beach and we have Tim to thank for helping us navigate the process."
