Client Testimonials

Julie Timms - When you want the very best
Julie Timms is the person you hope all realtors would be. She is knowledgeable, hard-working and results-oriented. She won't promise what she can't deliver, but she will absolutely deliver what she promises. Her communications were timely and accurate. I felt like I always knew what was going on. She was very good at telling me what I needed to know throughout the process. Her follow-through is super. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to work with the best person in her market. I would/will work with her again. She is the consummate professional!

Thank you so much for helping me find my home on Hilton Head Island! Julie were and are the best! A true professional - and your team is outstanding. I can't thank you enough.  All the best, Dr. Nancy T.  - Michigan
~Dear Julie and Team!
Julie is not just good, she's outstanding! She really knows the area and is completely honest about whether or not something is a good buy or a bad buy. She works hard. She has great negotiation skills, and used them to help us set acceptable asking prices and purchase limits. We're in the middle of making offers. And we're pretty confident that we won't be overpaying, solely because she is our buyer's agent. Really, if you're looking for a buyer's agent who is going to tell you the truth, and not let you overpay, you should talk to Julie.                
~Arthur and Ellen Segal
I cannot say enough good things about my experience working with Julie Timms and her entire team. They were tremendous in helping us through what could have been a very challenging situation.
~Dave and Monica Kirk
HHI Real Estate Brokers provided exceptional service. They stayed with us for over two years early in the process without the promise of a sale. Their support after the sale was notable. Their total knowledge of the HHI real estate market, the services/contractors available for such tasks as inspections, cleaning and lawn and garden care and other services requiring certified personnel was outstanding.
~Ray Borg
Julie is a very experienced real estate agent/broker. She communicates very clearly. She is quick to respond and can always be relied upon to answer a text or voicemail in very short order. The reason I dropped to four stars on Negotiation and Process Expertise is simply my perception of an overload of work for a busy agent. Otherwise, Julie's expertise is certainly an advantage to any buyer.
I have worked with Julie as both a buyer and seller. Her knowledge of the area and the market are unmatched. She is extremely responsive and I have complete confidence that she always had my best interests in mind.
~Donna and James Miller
I highly recommend Julia as a Real Estate Agent. She is very responsive to your needs. She is quick to return your phone call. She is well qualified and when and if the situation does not work out they way you had hoped (and sometimes it does not) she also has a plan B ready to move into action. Truly she is the "best" real estate agent.
~Marsha Williams
We loved Julie's professionalism and genuine personality right from the beginning. She guided us throughout the entire process and kept the lines of communication always open. Her office is also very professional and helpful. We recommend highly recommend Julie.
~Bob and Mare
Julie is very knowledgeable about the area! She gave us some great insight into various communities on the island - and in Bluffton, SC, too! We really enjoyed her candid comments, her honesty, and her integrity! We enjoyed working with her to buy our last property - and plan to work with her again - for our next property purchase!
We bought a second home with the assistance and guidance of Julie and her staff. Julie is masterful in her expertise and knowledge of the real estate market on HHI. She is professional, honest in her opinions, most capable, and efficient. We trusted her completely. Julie made the entire process from start to close so easy for us, especially since much of the work was done long distance. We heartily recommend her and would not hesitate to call upon Julie and her staff in the future.
~Mary Maire
Julie and her team were very helpful in our search for a vacation home in HHI. She listened to our wishes and made suggestions that we feel found us the perfect house. During the closing, she was attentive to the details and ensured that all outstanding issues were resolved to our satisfaction. This was very important as we were not personally at the closing. Even after the purchase, she continues to assist us by suggesting highly qualified contractors and/or suppliers. We find her local knowledge unsurpassed. She is a pleasure to work with and we are happy to recommend her (and her team) as a realtor.
I had been down here looking earlier in the year before, so they had an idea of what a could afford and what I wanted. Then they sent me a listing, a foreclosure that I could afford. I looked at the pictures from the listing, and sight (in person) unseen I told the agent Patty Presiner "go ahead get it for me" which she did. The agent sent me more pictures, and told me that the house was freshly painted thru out, and brand new carpet. When I moved in there was a lovely note from Julie, and Patty. Then they gave me several suggestions to do to the house. First was put a full screen over the garage door to enjoy the view of the lagoon AND the golf course. I was very lucky to get this house with the beautiful views none of which was obstructed with anything. So where I l ... Read More
Julie and her team provided outstanding service during all phases for the purchase of our home in Hilton Head Island, SC. The knowledge of the local market and surrounding areas was superior. The group also leveraged technology in ways that were amazing and helped us better utilize our time throughout the process. The group clearly presented alternatives (e.g. rental property) and the impact had on the economics. The negotiation strategy was clear and executed to perfection. The best thing about the team was how they asked the right questions to make sure that we were comfortable with the decisions.
~Lorie and Jeffrey Vanino
We went to meet Julie and explained to her that we were just looking with the intention of buying the following year. We were extremely pleased at how attentive and helpful she was. She took time from her busy schedule to sit with us and listen to our concerns and interests as well as explain the history to Hilton Head, SC which we were not familiar with. She assigned a wonderful associate Patty, who spent two days patiently giving us a tour of the island as well as showing us houses that were within our budget. We left the island knowing this was the place we wanted to live and returned the following year and purchased a home. We've become good friends with Julie and her wonderful staff.
Julie immediately called us when we first started browsing for our Hilton Head home. She had extensive knowledge of the area, it's growth and development which was very helpful. Since many areas in Hilton Head Island do not allow For Sale signs, dealing with such an expert as Julie was very beneficial and reassuring.
~Rainey Scott
Wonderful to work with on both purchase and sale. Knows the area like the back of her hand. Entire staff was professional, friendly and so very responsive. Would highly recommend.
~Kristine Gaustad
I can not tell you how pleased I was with Julie Toon Pawley Timms! Julie sold my house within a couple months and got over the appraised price. Julie's team is fantastic, from marketing to showing of my home. I would not hesitate to recommend Julie and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell
~Jo M. Bruno
We started shopping on-line for homes on Hilton Head Island in 2013 as we prepared to retire to the East Coast. As luck – and good fortune – would have it, we landed on Julie’s website, which was user-friendly and informative. When we began the actual process of looking at homes in person, Julie’s thorough knowledge of the island, its neighborhoods and their unique qualities, her interest in our priorities in a home, and her accessibility were valuable assets in our search. Julie’s professionalism and low-pressure, consultative approach were an ideal fit for us as she helped guide us to the home we eventually purchased. Working with Julie and her team at HHI Real Estate Brokers was a very positive experience for us.
