We decided that it was time for us to get into a bigger place, since we were expecting our second child and were running out of room fast. We started the process by checking realtor.ca (MLS) browsing properties. The market was very fast paced, and when we saw something we liked it would already have an accepted offer. We were introduced to Tim Higham during our search. He offered to do a market analysis on our current home, even though we were thinking of selling privately. He was very professional, friendly and had a relaxed no pressure personality. We decided to list our home with Tim, and the process was great. We had a toddler at home and I was concerned about showing my home at awkward times. Tim assured us that we could make the showing work for our family. We decided on a price and were set to list when I ended up injuring myself and was on crutches. We were able to hold back listing until I was more mobile, and did not feel pressure at all to move forward.
Once we listed, Tim advertised using MLS, websites, Kijiji, and social media. We had a few showing and received and accepted an offer, in one day. Unfortunately, the offer fell through. We had a few more showings and within a couple of days received another offer, above list price.
During this time we were also looking with Tim for a new home. He set up a specific search based on what we needed. This was helpful and saved us a lot of time. He also notified us of properties that were being listed, giving us the first look at many homes.
When viewing the properties with Tim, he would often point out issues that he saw with properties for us to be aware about. We appreciated being informed about these issues, even if minor since we are not handy people. We ended up looking at many homes on the market, as well as new construction with builders. Tim was available every time we contacted him, and made looking at homes a fun experience.
When we found the home we wanted to make an offer on, Tim worked hard to make everything fall into place. As everything went through, he was in contact with us with updates. He made sure we had a ten day window from when we took possession of our new home to when the new owners took possession of our old property. This really took the stress off of us!!!
Buying and selling homes is a big thing, and since most people only do it a few times in their life it can be an overwhelming process. We are so happy we found Tim to work with, are really happy with our new home. We would recommend Tim to our family and friends, and would gladly work with him again.Chantel and Riku
Tim Higham has been a great help to my husband and I. As first time home buyers, he has shown us remarkable patience and he is knowledgeable about the home buying process. We would recommend him to anyone! Thanks again Tim! (YOU ROCK!)Annie
My husband & I wanted to look @ this house for sale on Warner Ave. so we had decided to use Tim Higham. He is amazing!! He was super helpful & held my "worry wart" hand through out the entire process of purchasing our new home. When it came time to sell our old house out in Willow River we already had a buyer but Tim was once again our guy Friday.April and Ryan
As first time house sellers we had a lot of questions for Tim. He lead us through the entire process with confidence and integrity. He answered our questions promptly. He was humble and easy to deal with in all circumstances. He was also very knowledgeable about Prince George. Having Tim as our Real Estate Agent made our stressful move not so stressful.Jenna and Justin
"We first met Tim through our search of real estate websites and were frustrated with how difficult it was to narrow our search. When I happened to find the propertyshop site, the first thing I noticed was that it was easy to use, uncluttered and simple to establish parameters for searching. Tim offered to consult with us in our first foray into buying and also in selling our current house and quickly set us up with a handy link to a regularly updated selection of properties meeting our requirements.
We found him to be very professional, prompt and considerate, yet very low key. There was no pressure to view or on how to sell, but he had great advice when asked. We quickly discovered that he was extremely hardworking with a strong, clear work ethic and subtle sense of humour that made the potentially stressful process of relocating much easier. It was a very pleasant surprise to discover that in the process of buying and selling property, we not only found the best real estate agent for us but also made a new friend.” Pat & NitaPat and Nita
“Working with Tim was terrific! We lived in Langley but were buying a home in Prince George.
From our first meeting with Tim to completing our purchase he was always professional,
dedicated and thoughtful. He got to know us and our needs quickly and was able to find a
home and area perfectly suited to us – even though mostly working long distance.
We couldn’t be happier with the service he provided!”

My husband and I are first time home buyers, and began looking for a place to call our own almost 2 years ago. We have gone through many different realtors, and then we came across Tim's website. I had signed up to view his current listings. It wasn't even 3 days later when we received an email from Tim with a welcome Video personalized to myself. From there we viewed quite a few different houses. With Tim, he would look at the listings, then go out to the properties and view them before we would even ask to look at them, and would guide us through the listing to ensure it had what we were searching for. Tim is knowledgeable and what he doesn't know, he finds out usually in the same day. Thanks to Tim's efforts, we have recently settled on our first home. Tim has gone above and beyond to ensure we were happy, often working until late in the evening to get everything done! Whether you are looking for your first home or your forever home, Tim Higham is awesome!Craig and Amanda
