"Tim was fantastic! My wife and I were first time home buyers and Tim helped us through the process every step of the way making it a smooth experience. Tim was not only very knowledgeable, but he was great at making us feel comfortable at very busy open houses and showings in a competitive market. His knowledge of homes and attention to detail was also impressive; at every home we visited he pointed out several often overlooked details for us to look at and take into consideration before making an offer. Tim's team is also great - if he had a scheduling conflict, his team was ready and willing to step in to assist in showing us a property. Tim was very responsive and clear with his communications. He was quick to respond with any questions we had or additional details we requested. When it came time to put in offers, his knowledge of the local market conditions really showed. We fully trusted Tim's guidance on making reasonable but competitive offers and it paid off. After our offer was accepted, he helped us negotiate some additional repairs and was adamant about ensuring they were completed before closing and done by professionals. We would highly recommend working with Tim to anyone looking to buy a home!" - Jason

"Knowledgeable, accomodating, and responsive communication in getting to know my home needs through our visits/discussions either during our walk throughs/touring properties or our conversations via phone, email and text message. I really appreciated the personalized online home search utilizing my search criteria/profile of "must haves" and "nice to haves" for my new home. Mr. Tim Royster kept me apprised of real estate listings and scheduling tours of properties thus maximizing efficiency for everyone's time. From my first conversation with Tim to closing on my new home, what a pleasure it has been working with Mr. Tim Royster and the Royster Hearth Group. Thank you so much for your time, responsiveness, and assistance in making my new home goal(s) a reality." - Dennis

"I’ve dealt with a number of real estate agents over the years and Tim ranks at the top of the list. His knowledge of the Northern Virginia market and entire real estate transaction process was superb. He had an uncanny sense for finding properties that my wife and I were interested in touring. He always came very prepared with data and printouts of the prospective properties we’d be touring and was never late. Tim was very patient with us as we tried to understand the area, different types of homes, and pros/cons of each property. During the walkthroughs of the properties, Tim would point out the good and the bad, flagging potential issues. This was above and beyond any real estate agent I’ve ever dealt with and saved us from pursuing several properties with costly issues. Tim surrounds himself with a superb team and recommended a great home inspector, Title company, professional photographer, and virtual stager. He was always very responsive and is the consummate professional. When we settled on a property and decided to make an offer, Tim’s experience in the real estate market and local area paid dividends when presenting the offer and later when negotiating credits after the home inspection. Tim helped us navigate a complex real estate transaction involving a trustee, attorney, and general contractor. Tim is always on your side and has your best interests in mind. He is honest, hard working, humble, and exemplifies his company’s mission statement to “serve our neighbors, not ourselves”. We highly recommend Tim and the Royster Hearth Group! Thank you Tim, and team! You’re our only choice for any future real estate transactions!" - Scott

"Tim is an absolute professional - knowledgable, responsive, ethical, and empathetic. As a first time home buyer, Tim walked us through the whole process and was there with our family every step of the way. Throughout, I knew that Tim had my best interests in mind and was looking out for any shortterm and longterm pitfalls. Secondly, Tim is also a great salesman. We first met him at two open houses and he immediately stuck out from his peers. Tim is attentive but not pushy. He is focused on making a deal and connecting the right buyer with the right home. I cannot reccomend Tim enough if you are looking to buy a home-especially if you are a first time buyer!!!!" - Matthew

"We had such an incredible home selling experience. We could not be more pleased with Tim and his team. Tim listened to our thoughts and concerns and was able to address every issue. He went over the selling process, brought in experts to assist and reassured us along the way. Everyone was respectful, knowledgeable and were true professionals. Tim's knowledge and expertise led to a very short time on the market with multiple offers over asking price. It was such a great experience...we highly recommend Tim!!" - Leah
