Offering an unique approach to promoting and marketing property, Tim’s dedicated attitude, extensive database, exceptional market & area knowledge, coupled with an insatiable desire for success has been a catalyst to the outcomes his clients often boast as outstanding.

The feedback from Tim’s clients speak for themselves!

Tim Nagano has been an amazing agent – determined, conscientious, professional, courteous and friendly. Right from the start, he gave us confidence that he would sell our property, and he really came through. Within a week, we had three written offers, one of which was good enough to buy our property. Having spent six months with another agency (with no outcome), this was a fantastic result, and we credit Tim with giving us all the right advice regarding marketing strategies, pricing and presentation. Tim’s approach kept us fully informed, gave us ownership of the process, and helped us to relax and “let it happen”. We could not be happier with the results of Tim’s work, and we would highly recommend Tim as an agent to anyone who is looking for a pleasant, efficient and rewarding experience in selling their property. Tim is a real professional, and definitely one of the best! Thanks Tim!
Craig Pearman

We have recently concluded the sale of our property in Hope Island and would like to express our thanks to our agent Tim Nagano. We found Tim to be very professional, thorough and very helpful throughout the whole process. We were thrilled when he got an offer for us so soon after getting our listing and he worked extremely well to achieve a price we were happy with. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to any future sellers and buyers as a reliable and extremely informative sales rep.
J Walsh, D Cox & A Cox

Thanks so much for all your help with the sale of our home in Hollywell.
It was the first time we have sold a house and you helped us step by step through the process and helped ease all our nerves.
We were very pleased with the quick sale in around 30 days with your recommendation of an auction, which also resulted in us achieving our desired price.
With all the hard work we have put into the house with renovations, it was nice to get the result and move on to our future plans with no stress.
You were constantly available with any questions we had relating to our house and the market in general.
Thank you again for all your help and we would not hesitate recommending your services to anyone in the area.
Sarah & Dale
