Tim was licensed as a real estate agent in 1985 at the age
of 22. Since interest rates were 13% when he decided to start his new career,
few people were supportive of his decision to quit his full-time job and jump
in head first. He sold 18 homes in his first year and never looked back. In
fact, in that first year, he learned that he enjoyed sharing his success with
other agents in the office as much as he enjoyed his own success. Tim knew in
his first year, that he would someday manage an office of his own. That day
came in 1995, due to the deteriorating health of the managing broker; he became
a Broker/Owner of a successful Coldwell Banker Franchise in Burnsville & Edina.
With 2 offices and over 45 affiliated independent agents, he and a business
partner operated the company until 1998, when Coldwell Banker purchased Burnet
Realty and as a result, purchased the franchise. Tim and the agents were now affiliated
with a very successful real estate powerhouse, Coldwell Banker Burnet. Early in
December of 1999, he was asked by his SVP, Al Iverson, if he would be willing
to relocate outside of the Twin Cities. He wasn’t very excited until he found
out it was Rochester. After years of frequently traveling through Rochester on
his way Pheasant hunting in Harmony & Iowa, he always told friends that he
wished that he worked for a company like IBM that would transfer him to
Rochester. That wish came true on January 4th, 2000 when he became the new
Branch Vice President of the Rochester office of Coldwell Banker Burnet. Tim
grew the Rochester office from being affiliated with 50 independent agents to being
affiliated with 85 independent agents in just 3 years and to being affiliated
with over 100 agents in 5 years. Though his title is Branch Vice President, he
is really a “business developer”.
