What my clients are saying  

We had the honor of working with Tim Oakes.. . He came to our property and gave us a market analysis of our home. We were struck by his professionalism and his knowledge of our Del Webb community and his opinion of the housing market in general.. We had a wonderful conversation of many topics outside of selling our home to the point that we didn’t feel the need to have a second opinion of anyone else to list our property. Leaning on Tim’s knowledge, he was able to bring in a prospective buyer to our home.. He set up a showing with the out of town buyers and we accepted their offer the same evening of the showing that we had that morning.. Tim guided us with great communication skills along the way of all the things we needed to do to get us to the final closing date.. I would highly recommend Tim for anyone who might be looking for a realtor to either list or buy a property in the Vail area or for any other area of Tucson..

I first met Tim when my parents were looking to sell my grandparents' home back in 2000. Tim offered great suggestions to them as to what needed to be done to get the home ready to sell. He was willing to help do some of the work, including painting. For many years my family & I have worked w/ Tim. What can be a very stressful anxious time in life has been made much easier w/ someone as knowledgeable as he is. Most recently I found myself in the market to purchase a home, but I was somewhat hesitant because of high interest rates. I decided to give Tim a call & see what advice he had for me. He recommended we start looking around and he told me that I might be surprised to see that inventory was starting to pick up a bit. We found a place that I was very enthusiastic about. The property in question drew a lot of attention from both cash investors & people like me looking for a place to live. I am convinced that because of Tim had me act quickly and we were awarded the winning bid.

Tim was a huge help in regard to purchasing my first home. There is both professionalism and care that is promoted in his work, which are clearly expressed in every step of the process. I would recommend Tim to any individual looking to purchase a home, especially first-time home buyers!

Our experience working with Tim was excellent from beginning to end. In addition to his knowlege, professionalism and other necessary skills, he went the extra mile for us, provided support that was crucial for me, and brought our transaction to an amazingly satisfying conclusion.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Tim Oakes of Del Lago Realty. Having found our dream home Tim was always there for us, from the onset through the closing. We were so pleased with him we decided to have him put our existing home on the market. Working with him was an absolute pleasure! From our initial meeting and conversations, it was obvious that Tim was focused on us and not just a commission. He is highly knowledgeable about the local market and made sure we always felt like a priority. At each step, in both the purchasing of our new home, and the selling of our previous home, Tim went out of his way to ensure every detail was taken care of – from arranging inspections to researching potential issues with a property. He went over and above what we expected from a realtor, always keeping us informed and helping us with all the small details that paid off in the end. We will recommend him to everyone we know!

Tim listed and sold my mothers home in the Del Webb community. We had to move her in with us out of state because of health issues. I gave Tim the keys and he handled everthing from helping us figure out what to do with Moms furniture & items she wouldn't be needing, all the way to closing the sale for us. Being out of state Tim was able to keep me informed as we moved from securing a buyer, to getting through the inspections and appraisal, all the way to finalizing the sale and making sure the title company wired our proceeds to our back account. The entire process was flawless and thankfully Tim was helping us through a tough time. I would highly recommend Tim if you are looking to hire a real esate broker.


~ Terry W.

Tim has helped me purchase and sell several homes over the years here in the Tucson Area. He's a great negotiator and he worked through several inspection issues I had on one of my properties. Tim helped me find the right vendors to make repairs required for a VA loan. I would recommend Tim if you are looking to purchase a home or List your home. He has done both for me and excels at buyer and seller representation.


~ Matthew E.

Tim has helped us purchase and sell 6 homes in the last 20 years here in the Tucson Area. We kept using Tim because evey transaction was extremely smooth and pleasant. There were some bumps in the road like any real estate transaction but Tim was able to keep our transactions on the right track to close on time and without delays. We will definately be calling Tim to help us with our next move when the time comes.


~ Art & Sally A.

We bought one of Tim's listing several years ago. Our realtors worked with him and he made the purchase very easy. Our realtors said he was a pleasure to work with. My brother was having a difficult time finding a nice rental in May and I called Tim and asked if one of his listings in the Del Webb community could rent rather than sell. Tim connected me with the owner within 10 minutes and my brother had a house to rent that afternoon so he could be close to our aging mother who lives in the community. He definitely goes out of his way to help you and I highly recommend him!

I turned to Tim Oakes to list my Del Webb home after a bad experience with another realtor. I only wish I had selected him in the first place. Tim knows every property in the Del Webb community and is extremely helpful and above all experienced and professional. You cannot engage a better realtor for the Vail area, and Del Webb in particular.


~ Thomas K.

Tim helped us sell our home in Wingview here in Vail a few years ago. He did a superb job with the entire selling process. He even installed a couple TV mounts at the 11th hour prior to closing. We had taken our TV mounts from our Living Room & Master Bedroom by accident. Tim had mentioned that those items were supposed to remain in the home but we somehow weren't thinking. Tim going above and beyond was why we called him back several years later to help us with our purchase here in the Del Webb community. Needless to say his efforts with our purchase was exactly the same as our previous transaction that he had helped us with. We would certainly recommend Tim if you are in need of a Real Estate Broker.


~ Steve & Joann E.

We both thought Tim did a fantastic job with our home sale in Del Webb at Rancho del Lago. He was on top of everything every step of the way. He calmed me down when I was getting anxious and he was professional from day one. Thank you so much and we would recommend Tim to anybody because he is an excellent service as a real estate broker.


~ Debra & Tracy G.

Tim did a fantasitc job with the sale of our home and with our purchase in the Vail Area. He also helped my Parents with their purchase in the Del Webb community. His communication skills were much appreciated. He kept us up to date from offer acceptance all the way till we closed on our new home. Even the smallest of details was communicated to us throughout the transaction. We would highly recommend Tim if you are thinking of buying or selling a home in the Southern Arizona area.


~ Jason & Vanessa S.

Tim sold our home in the Del Webb community during the Pandemic which was a challenging time for all of us. We moved out of state and left Tim with keeping an eye on our home and getting it sold for us. He sold our home in a timely fashion for a price we were very happy with. We would highly recommend Tim if you are thinking of Listing your home. His knowledge of the Local Real estate market was by far the best we found when interviewing Brokers to help us with our home sale . 5stars for sure.
