What do Clients Say?

Thank you Tim and Kaya Realty! Tim did an amazing job representing us and selling our home. Starting day 1, Tim guided us through the process and turned what we feared as a stressful process into a smooth and easy transaction. We appreciate his expert advice and professionalism through the selling of our home. We don't plan to sell a house anytime soon but, when we do, Tim will be the only person I trust to sell our home. I highly recommend Tim and Kaya Realty for any of your real estate needs. Thank you Tim!


Tim Ney was very knowledgeable and very detail orientated. He pointed out everything from the traffic in the street to how much the natural light each Home had. He truly cares about his clients and wants the best for them. The best we had and we went through a couple of very experienced and highly recommended realtors. Tim is the realtor you want because he treats you as a person not just a commission. Would highly recommend Tim.


Tim Ney was our real estate agent for our home search back in 2007-2008 and we have now been in that home for nearly 6 years. We worked with Tim for over a year and he was excellent at every step. Although our home was probably in the lower price range for most of his clients, Tim spent countless hours viewing over 100 homes over several months until we found the right one for us. Tim's knowledge was invaluable and we greatly appreciated his comments about why we shouldn't buy certain houses, as he was dedicated to ensuring we made the right purchase, not just any purchase. Since this time we have referred family and friends to Tim, and we highly recommend him to anyone. While we still remain very happy in our home, if we decide to look elsewhere, we won't hesitate to work with Tim on selling our current home and buying a new one.


I have known Tim for over 20 years. He is professional, trustworthy, knowledgeable, extremely, organized and got us into the right home well within our required timeframe. He really knows the business and will treat you fairly and honest. I would recommend him to my closest friends and family. You cant do any better.


Tim Ney is exemplary across the essential style, skills and capacities required to navigate the frequent complexities of property sales. His warmth and compassion balanced several exhausting challenges. Tim's patient and thorough review of options reflects a seasoned mastery of all the nuances of real estate. And, ... His willingness to meet us where we were in our understanding gave us permission to take ownership of our sale through and beyond close of escrow. His continuing pursuit of personal and professional development is inspiring and refreshing. Without hesitation, we recommend Tim's services and friendship
