"When Tammy asked me to write a testimonial about my family and our experiences working with her and Tim and the rest of the incredible staff at RE/MAX 1, I was so excited. Just last week I was asking her how I could sing her praises! It only seemed right after how hard she and Tim have worked for us over the past several months as we, once again, are moving!
We have used Tim and RE/MAX 1 for two purchases and one sale previously and have been so happy. When it came time for us to relocate into Austin to be closer to my husband's new and more central job location, we called Tim and got the process started. Unlike our two previous moves, this move would be different... we were buying in a city, that while we had spent plenty of time in socially, we knew nothing about actually living in!
That's where Tammy Kress came in! While Tim managed the sale of our current home beautifully, Tammy helped us with the location and purchase of our new home. We relied heavily on Tammy's knowledge and expertise of "all-things-Austin" to help us pinpoint a location to focus on. Because of the job’s central location we had SO many options available to us and it became a bit overwhelming. Tammy was excellent at keeping us focused throughout the process, always offering suggestions on how to thoughtfully navigate the city in order to not only find our new home, but a new community, school system and lifestyle. She has not only worked in the Austin market for several years but she has lived in nearly every part of the area and that in itself was an invaluable resource to our family as we explored the area and targeted our favorite spots.
Tammy is unique in that she combines a positive, upbeat and organized realtor savvy with a laid-back, "go-at-you-own-pace" philosophy. I have never once felt rushed through our process (even when our timeline for finding a new home was at its end) and have appreciated her attentiveness and wisdom while giving my family and I time to think, research and process our upcoming move. She is the calm that steadies the inevitable storms that come alongside this process.
Tammy helped us locate our dream neighborhood and a house that we think was built just for us. And as an added bonus, Tammy and Tim's upstanding character and solid reputation within the market helped us avoid a bidding war when the seller received a competing offer just hours after we made our offer. The seller's agent knew and respected Tammy and Tim and had no doubt their client's offer was solid, not to mention he enjoyed and preferred working with agents of their caliber. This is when I started asking Tammy for opportunities to sing her praises! I was so excited about our new home!
Aside from Tim and Tammy who are undoubtedly a great team, their support staff members are equally as impressive, responsive, friendly and helpful. They are a joy to work with and are good at what they do, keeping their clients organized as they walk them step by step through both the selling and buying processes. The praises are many for RE/MAX 1! I'm just so glad I finally had an opportunity to express them!"

"Buying and Selling real estate can be a stressful and difficult process for many homeowners. Putting your trust and confidence in a professional realtor is of utmost importance when working through this process.
My personal experience working with Tammy & Tim Kress at RE/MAX 1 was without question the right decision when selling our home in Round rock and buying a new home in Georgetown, TX. Tim explained the selling process, strategies and market conditions quite accurately. His guidance and advice was invaluable and resulted in obtaining a true "Market Value" when we listed and sold our home through RE/MAX 1.
Tim's wife Tammy also earned our trust, guiding us through the process of buying our new home in Georgetown. I felt as if she was our "Guardian Angel" during the process watching over our interest as a buyer and demonstrating her knowledge of the market.
Together Tim and Tammy Kress work as a team for the client, offering professional service, knowledgeable advice and accurate recommendations. I would highly recommend the RE/MAX 1 team to any prospective buyer or seller or residential property in the Central Texas market place."
“I would highly recommend Tim and his team, Tim advised me to make some improvements to our home in order to get the best price. Turns out he was right on the money. His staff was very helpful during the closing process and worked around our schedule. Very friendly staff and real easy to work with, whether your selling or buying a house Tim Kress is the right choice”.

She went above and beyond my expectations!"-Joleen Figueroa_____________ "Tim,Thanks again for all you do! You don't know how much you have changed our lives, and your flexibility in your fees made it happen. We couldn't have done it without you. Here's the pic we promised you from closing, one of the best days of our lives as a new family. Sending much love to you and your staff, and hope all is well!"-Royce, Shellie and Austin____________"Thank you all so much for everything you've done to help my husband and I sell our house. From the very first day we were treated with nothing but respect. Everyone in the office was so nice, and VERY helpful! We were both so nervous about the selling process, but you all made it so easy for us, our house sold in nine days all thanks to the hard work of Tim and his team.Throughout the closing process we were kept informed and 'in the loop.' We will never be able to thank you enough for everything you have done for us. We appreciate it so so much. To say we are satisfied with the service we received would be an understatement."-Holly and Mike Vaculik____________"Wow!!!! RE/MAX 1!!From the first minute we spoke with Tim Kress, we knew we were in competent hands. He toured our home and then sat down and clearly explained the entire home selling process to us. No surprises is the best in business situations!!! As we were building a new home, selling our current home was going to require perfect timing! Home staging was offered to speed the process. Pricing was discussed and Tim had done his homework in suggesting an initial price. And the The Team took over! We received updates constantly - knew every time the home had a showing and what the comments were. We always felt like we were on top of the situation.Price adjustments were made in a very timely manner to expedite the sale. And then after just three weeks on the market, a CONTRACT!!!! It was negotiated and the house was SOLD!!!!!Inspections and very few repairs were handled efficiently and closing was a dream - Thanks once again to RE/MAX 1!!!We would HIGHLY recommend and would definitely use them again!"-Chester and Dinah Collinsworth___________"After meeting with two other prospective agents, we met with Tim Kress and decided to list our house with his team. We were impressed with his professional demeanor and his organization of all the information that came with the listing process. Since our house sold very quickly (on day 1), we did not have much involvement with the marketing team, however, we were very pleased with the photos that were taken of our house as the made our grass look green during the middle of the Texas drought! We worked with Jade through the closing process and could not have been happier with her response to our concerns, and her friendly and helpful personality. She allowed me to bug her regularly and never seemed to get annoyed with my constant phone calls. All in all, the experience with Tim Kress' team was a positive one and we are glad we chose to sell our house with them."-Melissa and Kevin___________"Tim and his team helped us with the sale of our home in September of 2009. Having had previous bad experiences with both seller's and buyer's agents, we came into this transaction highly skeptical. Tim and his team eased all of our concerns from the first meeting with their outstanding professionalism. They put together a great marketing plan and walked us through all of the steps of the process. We received multiple offers within three days of listing our house. Tim and his team handled all of the little bumps in the road that came up, maintained constant communication with us, and always acted in our best interest. We received more than our asking price due in no small part to Tim's experience and ability to negotiate. Tim and his team put a lot of effort and thought into making the process very easy and user friendly by utilizing such things as electronic forms, professional photography, and multiple points of contact. We are extremely satisfied with their service and would highly recommend Tim Kress and Associates whether you are purchasing or selling a home."-Jason Heath___________"What we like best about Tim Kress & Assoc. is Tim :) And what we like about Tim is his openness and honesty, as well as his experience in the field of real estate. We have been recommending him to our friends since 1999 and will continue to do so."-Paige and Brian Heard----------"I didn't meet Kerry Redding under the best circumstances. My wife and I were seperating and selling our home. Kerry was kind and compassionate and really helped make the most of a terrible situation. Not only did she help stage our house to set it up for a quick sale but she took amazing pictures and even created a virtual tour online. Most realtors take pictures and list your home. Kerry goes above and beyond. She was more than a realtor, she was a friend. She even helped me find an apartment by doing the research and taking me around to look at like 7 or 8 of them on her day off. She listened to me as i poured my heart out about the situation. When we had a yard sale to get rid of a lot of belongings we werent going to be taking she was there, helping organize, declutter, watch our kids. She spackled the walls for us. She really is more than a Great realtor, she is a Great person and you would do yourself a great service by hiring her. Thank you for everything Kerry, from the bottom of my heart."-T.B.----------"Kerry is not only an amazing knowledgeable realtor she is an amazing person as well. She knows the market, your city and your subdivision. She takes those factors plus you properties own personal character into review when pricing your home effectively. She gave us a range and time frame of when we should expect to sell. She hit the nail on the head and by the time we sold we had 3 offers in our property and were able to get top dollar. She always takes your call and responds quickly. She really makes you feel like you are her only client. She goes above and beyond as a realtor. Don't make a mistake and hire anyone else. No one will compare! She is the best and I truly respect her!-Roz B.
