Tim was licensed as a real estate agent in 1985 at the age of 22. Since interest rates were 13% when he decided to start his new career, few people were supportive of his decision to quit his full-time job and jump in head first. He sold 18 homes in his first year and never looked back.
In fact, in that first year, he learned that he enjoyed sharing his success with other agents in the office as much as he enjoyed his own success. Tim knew in his first year, that he would someday manage an office of his own. That day came in 1995, due to the deteriorating health of the managing broker; he became a Broker/Owner of a successful Coldwell Banker Franchise in Burnsville & Edina. With 2 offices and over 45 affiliated independent agents, he and a business partner operated the company until 1998, when Coldwell Banker purchased Burnet Realty and as a result, purchased the franchise. Tim and the agents were now affiliated with a very successful real estate powerhouse, Coldwell Banker Burnet.
Early in December of 1999, he was asked by his SVP, Al Iverson, if he would be willing to relocate outside of the Twin Cities. He wasn’t very excited until he found out it was Rochester. After years of frequently traveling through Rochester on his way Pheasant hunting in Harmony & Iowa, he always told friends that he wished that he worked for a company like IBM that would transfer him to Rochester. That wish came true on January 4th, 2000 when he became the new Branch Vice President of the Rochester office of Coldwell Banker Burnet. Tim has grown the Rochester office to be one of the top 5 offices in per person productivity. Though his title is Branch Vice President/Broker, he is really a “real estate strategy coach”.
Certified Integrity Selling® Facilitator
Tim resides in Rochester with his partner Barbara and 7 Brittany Spaniels. Tim and Barbara have a blended family of 7 grown children. 2 real estate agents, 2 nurses, 1 electrician, and 2 college students. Tim grew up in Apple Valley, MN and he and his teammates believe that they started the wresting dynasty at AVHS with a second-place finish in 1980. He has been in sales for just about his entire life. Starting out with a paper route at 12 yrs. old he enjoyed the interaction with customers for over 3 yrs. Tim believes that experience of face to face selling and even having to collect money led him to develop a passion for sales. Tim worked for Knox Lumber in Burnsville for 5 years, sold cars for 1 year, and then realized that real estate was his true passion.
Tim’s other passion is breeding, raising, training, and competing with his Brittany Spaniels. They compete in horseback field trails across the Midwest and southern part of the country. Two of his dogs, Wilson and Chip are currently potential national champion hopefuls. He and Barbara have been breeding their dogs over the past 6 years and have had 10 litters of puppies. Tim also enjoys boating, and cooking (Grill Master).
