    Aside from Tim's overall knowledge of the intricacies of buying a home, ie, up to date knowledge of the market, local communities, comps in the area, reputable mortgage and title companies, building standards, construction expertise, SO many areas us buyers don't often allow enough importance about, Tim brought these to our attention for our consideration. In addition he brings pure interest in helping us obtain the home "we" are looking for. We do not question his integrity or ethics. I was unaware my first comments would address all these areas in the survey. Bottom line is, for any and all future real estate purchases, we will contact Tim to handle our interest. Not much more I can say about Tim than that.! ~ Sam B-Mattawan, MI
    I appreciate Tim's character of kindness and patience but also how quickly he responded to my questions and validated my concerns. ~ Lydia B, Kalamazoo, MI
    Tim has gone above and beyond in helping me find my new home here. He's available, responsive, honest, and a great source of information about the area as well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him, or use him as my realtor when I need one again We live in crazy times, and the fact that I just bought a house without seeing it in person still blows my mind. Tim did a great job with taking me on video tours of the houses we looked at, worked with my friend to be able to accompany him on several of those tours, and helped me decide on an offer that was solid and finally did the trick... Again in this crazy market where things are selling quickly and for top dollar. 100% satisfied in my dealings with Tim! ~ Sue Boyle, Kalamazoo
    I started out looking with a different broker. He was not pro-active in helping me find a house so I switched to Timothy De Young on a recommendation from my daughter's realtor (on the east side of the state). Timothy is a great realtor.

Timothy is knowledgeable about the local real estate market and gave me good advice throughout the bidding process. I am now the happy owner of nice house. I would highly recommend Timothy DeYoung and would not hesitate to use him again if the need occurred. ~ Karen Berzins, Paw Paw, MI

    First off, I want to thank God for blessing me with my new home. I'd like to thank Tim DeYoung at Century 21 - C. Howard for helping me through the process of purchasing a home. Tim did everything I asked him to do, even when he sometimes doubted the response of what I asked him to do. I said, "there's nothing too hard for God!" And so he got right on board. Tim was very kind, friendly, easy to get in touch with, and communicated well with me. He worked long days just to accommodate my needs and schedule and I really appreciated that. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience working with Tim and the Century 21 - C. Howard family. They went above and beyond all my expectations and wants. May the Lord continue to bless you and the company. ~ Denise Snell, Kalamazoo

    We want to sincerely thank Tim for helping us in narrowing down to such a beautiful house. Throughout the past weekend, we both were remembering the entire process for looking for this house. Many people visited us this weekend and everyone appreciated our house. And, when we hear those appreciation, it indeed makes us happy. This would not have been possible without your reassuring effort. I really appreciate the punctuality of Timothy, whenever I asked him to arrange a visit to a particular house, he has always done that on the same day/time as we were convenient with. He has never tried to procrastinate it. After we made an offer on the house, he handled the documentation process very professionally and in a timely manner. He kept a very clear and transparent communication with us during the entire process. I would highly recommend Timothy De Young to my friends and relatives for purchase/sell of a property. He is a sincere and hard working person. I wish him success in his career. God bless him. :) ~ Rajeev and Vaishali Prasad, Kalamazoo MI
    Timothy has been a great help in selling our house, and helping us find the right place to purchase, taking in account of our budget, all our expectations, and the very fast moving market, I know this was not easy. The sale of our house happened very quickly, and so we needed to find a place promptly that had fit all our preferences in our budget, Tim made sure everything lined up flawlessly. It turned out much better than we had expected. Id recommend Timothy to anyone of my friends or family. ~ Dave

    Timothy De Young any time showed personal values such his valuable support by listening, solving some issues with the buyer, as well as helping me out when preparing my the Open house (e.g. planting some flowers, cleaning my long drive way, repairing a window, etc). Knowing later that his father was a local Pastor was a plus. He is a people oriented agent. His past exposure overseas to any type of customers and their problems is evident and extremely valuable. Finally, his effectiveness to sale my house took a very short period. Negotiations were difficult but effective. I am ready to refer him to other person David Howard is an excellent leader who inspires his values to the entire Team. ~ Patricia R Bartlett, Kalamazoo-Michigan
    Timothy De Young was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in the selling of my house. He communicates easily with people. I live a few hours from Kalamazoo, but De Young still made the process comfortable and fast. He is trustworthy and was patient with my lack of knowing anything about selling a house. He was quick to stop a Craig's List scam artist from interfering with the sale of the house and having a possible break-in. Timothy De Young is skillful in selling a house in a timely manner and reaching a win win deal for both parties. I would strongly recommend him to anyone wanting to move or buy a house or property in Michigan. You won't be sorry that you contacted him. But you will be sorry if you don't contact Timothy De Young. He is unbelievably good. ~ Virginia Melichar, Ann Arbor, MI
    Tim was an outstanding realtor for us. He understood our needs and worked hard to see that they were realized. We would certainly use him again if the need arises. ~ William Boekestein, Kalamazoo MI
    My partners and I enjoyed working with Tim. He worked hard to make the sale happen. ~ Tom Dailey, Schoolcraft
    This has been a very good experience for us. We actually had to buy the house for our son. My husband and I were dealing with Tim from a different location than my son, and he kept both parties well informed and also made suggestions that were very helpful. My husband and I have bought about 12 homes in our lifetime, and Tim has been one of the best professional people we have ever dealt with. (He was far better than my own cousin!) I would highly suggest Tim to anyone I knew moving to the area. Do what you to keep him because he is a great reflection of your company! ~ Dana Borenitsch Saginaw, MI
    It was by chance at an open house that we met Tim, And he was very social and friendly and made us feel very comfortable. As soon as we left I said I like him we should have him as our realtor. Tim was very helpful and on top of everything even the lender said that. ~ Josh Buckhannon Richland
    Tim was friendly, knowledgeable, and a quick communicator. ~ Chris T. - Sturgis, MI
