Reviews and Testimonials

Tim was an amazing realtor, and I could not recommend him more highly. We had another agent prior to hiring Tim who had really done a poor job and did not seem committed to selling our property, so we were nervous about what to expect. We talked to Tim and he was so clear with his strategy and expectations. He didn't just sell us vendors, oversell the amount he thought we could get for our home to lure us in, or undersell us to guarantee an easy sale. We got consistent reports on showings and our closing went incredibly smoothly. He did in a matter of months what his competition couldn't do in years. Save yourself the trouble of going through other agents and just hire Tim - I wish we had!

Michelle – Seller

We were trying to buy a home while we lived out of the state so we were not very flexible with our schedule.  As long as we gave Tim a reasonable heads up that we would be in the neighborhood, he would make sure he would be available to take care of us.  After he helped us find our home and we   started the process of buying it, Tim kept our stress level to a very minimum.  We knew that when we had a concern all we had to do was contact Tim and we would get a very timely, if not immediate, reply.  Tim is very professional, knowledgeable and personable and we would highly recommend him to anyone.

Tim Kelly has all the attributes and values you want in a Real Estate Broker.  As a buyer, we were looking for someone with integrity, true local knowledge and patience when it came to looking for our idea of a perfect home.  Tim spent a significant amount of time with us at the very beginning of our experience identifying what we wanted and he went to work.  He is a true professional that was extremely considerate of our time and put a great deal of effort into his selection of potential homes for us.  We were very comfortable relying on his eye for homes and he always ensured we understood the pros and cons of each house we saw.  
Tim Kelly is a true professional in the Real Estate business and I will/would be a return customer.  It is obvious that his profession is also his passion.

Andre & Leslie – Third-Time Buyers With a Growing Family

Tim Kelly is very knowledgeable and professional and handles the sale of your property with integrity.  He is kind and makes you feel at ease in all discussions related to the sale of your property.  He goes out of his way to assist you with even the smallest details.  When the road to closing gets   bumpy and issues develop causing last minute changes, he is skillful in helping you negotiate your way to a satisfactory conclusion.  He is a gentleman and treats you with respect.

Pamela – Seller

Tim is very good at what he does. There when you need an answer and gives good advice. He came out and went into detail about what he wanted to do and listened to what we wanted. He took some very good pictures of the house and presented them well on the internet. I believe the house sold within 6-8 weeks. We were not expecting any real offers until spring. It was so fast we had to rent a home in our retirement state until we found a home to buy. Thank you Tim for all the great work. 
Verlin – Seller

He helped us find a home quickly. He did everything possible and looked for all the resources available to us have a better place to live in. He did an amazing job!!! Thanks Tim.

Yoel & Carina – First-Time Buyers

Tim went over and above the call of duty for us. We had an issue with a promise our seller had made regarding getting a window replaced and, when they backed out of their promise, his agency covered the cost of replacement for us, months after we had bought the house. Tim was always incredibly courteous and caring. He feels like a member of our family to us now :)

Morven – Retired Buyer

I would recommend Tim without hesitation. He is knowledgeable as well as personable and actually made selling our house a pleasant experience.I found Tim's approach refreshing as he honestly and accurately priced our home and kept us well informed throughout the process.Tim was careful to explain  current market conditions and thus our expectations both as to realized price and time required for sale were reasonable and accurate.Lastly and most importantly, Tim is honest and a personal of high moral character and integrity.

Frank – Seller

I worked with Tim in buying my first home last year, and I would absolutely recommend him as an agent, and have done so since closing. As it was my first real estate experience, I had many questions, all of which Tim was able to promptly answer and explain so that someone unfamiliar with the buying process could understand. I never once felt pressured to buy or to look in a certain direction or outside my means. Tim was patient with me over a multi-month long search process, and provided excellent advice throughout. Tim worked around my schedule on viewing properties which made the process very convenient and easy. When the day comes that I am looking to sell this property and move, I fully intend to list it with Tim.

Cory - First-Time Buyer

Before my recent real estate transaction I had never met Tim Kelly. Within a few phone calls it felt like I was working with Tim for years. I really appreciated his responsiveness with all questions that I had and even more importantly the extensive detail and professionalism. I now will use Tim in all my real estate dealings in the future

Erik – Buyer


Tim was great as we were a difficult client. He took the time to show us everything we asked, explained all the details, met us as soon as possible on our request to see different properties. Took the time to make sure what we were doing was the right thing and also walked us step by step through the whole process. Found us an amazing finance broker that helped us with every aspect of the buying process. Tim is a real professional and compasionate real estate agent. We were very thankful for finding him. We will recommend Tim again in the future as needed. Thanks Tim for all your help!

Peggy - Seller & Buyer




I would and have highly recommended Tim Kelly as a professional and knowledgable realtor. As a a first time home buyer 5 years ago, he walked me through the process with ease. I was nervous at first but with his expertise and pleasant personality, I immediately gained his trust.



I felt like Tim used my time wisely.  We told him what we were looking for and he called us when he found the appropriate places to schedule a showing.  As a local myself, it was very important to me to work with a local who knows the area and history of Wilmington.  Tim was very easy to work with  and made the whole purchase a pleasant and quick experience.  I have recommended others to him and will continue to do so.



Mr Tim Kelly was always ready to answer all my questions and fulfilled all my expectations.  Selling my house with his help was very pleasant experience.



Mr. Kelly helped me sell/buy a home. He is a pleasure to work with and is very knowledgeable of the housing market. He worked long hours searching for homes for me. I would recommend Mr. Kelly for all of your housing needs!!

Tim Kelly is a sincere person who continues to reach out through correspondence.  I give his name every time I hear of someone looking for a realtor.  Many of my older friends have met Tim and feel very comfortable with him and trust him.



Tim was amazing.  He was very professional throughout the whole process.  We worked with Tim 2 years ago when the market was not great and we decided to take the house off the market early and he was very open to canceling the contract early. We listed the house again with Tim in mid September and  had 2 offers in the same day less than a month later! I think his experience with the area and home photos really I increased the activity for our home. We had a few issues getting with the buyer close to the closing however Tim was great about keeping us informed on the progress and ensuring all parties were aligned.  I would absolutely recommend Tim Kelly in the wilmington area.

Tim was a blessing in helping us find our new home! Being first time home-buyers, we had LOTS of questions and concerns, and he was more than happy to help us with everything throughout the entire process. If we ever decide to move, we will most definitely be using Tim's services again!



Tim was wonderful. Never rushed us no matter how many times we wanted to see a house. I would highly recommend him he worked hard to make sure we ended up with the house we always wanted.



We loved working with Tim. He's laid back and really delivers what you want without trying to push options on you that you aren't interested in. He's been working with us for years and stuck by us when things fell through. He really went above and beyond  and now we're finally getting our dream  home! We'll be inviting him to our house warming party, we couldn't have done it without him.



Tim Kelly made our search for a home really great! I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to take the pain out of home buying. He was a real pleasure to have as our Realtor. Tim is friendly and patient, and went out of his way to help us find a home we really loved. I can't say enough to convey  how happy I am with our experience. Thanks to Tim Kelly, we found the perfect home.

Tim assisted me with selling one home in Leland and purchasing another home a few miles away.  As both the selling agent for the old home and the buying agent for my new home, he worked tirelessly to coordinate so many different parties.  He was ALWAYS available, stayed in close contact and  communication throughout, and made the entire process seem almost effortless.  I was happy with both the selling price for my old home and the purchase price of the new home that Tim negotiated for me.  He got an very reasonable offer on my old home in about 60 days, in 2011 when the market was very bad.  I would highly recommend Tim, he always went out of his way to help me in any way that he could and seemed genuinely happy to be able to do so.



Tim Kelly helped us sell our home. He was professional, attentive and easy to work with. We were very happy with all his hard work and diligence and would recommend him as an agent.

Tim made the home buying experience a very stress free and enjoyable process.  We found Tim very knowledgeable and available to answer questions and show us the house on several occasions. I would highly recommend to Tim anyone looking for a real-estate agent

I had a great experience working with Tim as my buyer's agent.  I felt that he approached things in an intelligent manner, was very knowledgeable, and simplified the process as much as possible for us.  He maintained a calm, patient demeanor throughout, which helped things to feel less stressful  for me.  Tim listened well to us, was always quick to respond, and stayed on top of all the details.



I was searching for my first home and had the pleasure of working with Tim Kelly.  He was very helpful in the process and was always at the ready if I had a question. I toured several properties before I settled on the one and I couldn't have done it with such ease if it hadn't been for Tim. I  would highly recommend him!



I have known Tim Kelly for over 20 years.  Tim has been selling real estate for over 16 years.  When Tim started selling real estate he was actually working as a landscape architect in Raleigh and selling homes in Wilmington on weekends to help his sister.  During that time I wanted to sell my  townhome in Raleigh.  Tim offered me advice on how to sell it by owner.  He also taught my husband and I how to negotiate when buying the next home.  Since then, my husband and I have bought and sold 3 homes in Raleigh.  Tim has always been willing to offer advice and help in any way.  Tim is very knowledgeable in the area of real estate and is a hard-working professional.  I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Wilmington area.  In fact, I just did so last week!



I would absolutely use Tim in my next home purchase or sale as well as recommend his services to friends and family. His level of knowledge of the area and his customer service skills are beyond reproach. He was always there to answer any questions that we had and completely walked us through the  process as this was my very first home purchase and I had no idea what to expect.



It is with great pleasure that we recommend Tim Kelly for all your real estate needs! During the 2008 recession, a tough economic time for sure, we were the owners of a four bedroom, four-bath condominium in the Carolina Beach area.  It was a challenging sale, but Tim was persistent in his efforts  and used his knowledge of the area, the market and professional skills to get the job done. He was well connected with other agents and hosted an open house on the property several times. He was able to close the deal and in the process win our complete confidence in his abilities as a real estate professional. Tim takes the time to explain the selling process each step of the way, returns phone calls promptly and keeps you abreast of potential sales.  In addition, Tim is a genuinely great guy who always has a warm smile and upbeat attitude.

We had a great experience with Tim.  He listed our house and it ended up selling within a month's time.  He was very thorough and detailed in explaining how the process of listing and selling our home would go.  If we ever had a question on anything, he was very quick in answering back.  He truly  cares about his clients and will help in whatever way he can.  I highly recommend choosing Tim for any of your real estate needs.

Tim has impressed me!  He is very professional and offers a great insight on the Wilmington area.  The market data has been helpful to my family in making decisions on buying our home.  Tim is great to work with!

Zillow User 1623235


We have dealt with Tim twice -  once 4 years ago as we were buying our home and now when he sold our home for us to re-locate to the  Raleigh area.  Tim is an excellent realator, and works hard for his clients. We trusted him completely and relied on his advise.   This was a challenging job for Tim  as we were not in Wilmington a lot.  He handled all showings and the sale of the house in such a professional way, that he made it easy for us.  My only regret is that he is not in Raleigh when we buy our home here!!!!  I would strongly recommend Tim to others.
