I have known Tim Hiemstra for over 8 years and throughout this period he has done an outstanding job addressing my real estate needs. If you are looking to buy or sell, I recommend that you seek Preferred Coast Realty’s services…….Gina Marr

Tim is a joy to work with and really goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. It didn’t take him more than a few days to find the perfect home for us, much faster than we ever expected. He made the process a breeze and made all the forms we had to sign seem simple, highly professional. I will always think of Tim first in the future if I move again!

Outstanding agent who works tirelessly on behalf of client. He was always available to respond to my inquiries or concerns. He’s patient and always went out of his way to show me homes in the local area. He displayed a very good grasp of local real estate market conditions, advising on whether bids or proposed offers would be competitive or not.

Just bought a great lot with him. But the best is his huge network. He knows everyone around and is super helpful with everything. Even after the sale he really takes care and is always willing to help. Even found a lease for my company without even earning a penny for this. Great guy!!!!!

Tim is wonderful! I’ve known him for over a year, and I couldn’t imagine buying a home with anyone else. He was always in our corner. He jumped through hoops for us. He made sure we got the best loan, got all of our closing costs covered, and got us an amazing deal on our first house. He was at every inspection with us, he was even at our signing just in case we needed him. He always had our best interest at heart, and wanted to make sure we were not just happy, but ecstatic. If you need a real estate agent, this is the guy you want!

I had a very difficult time finding an agent that would work with me and my VA Home Loan. Most agents gave me a smile and a promise of a phone call, but Tim was the only one to contact me. He hit the ground running and by the second weekend, we made our offer. Throughout the whole process, I constantly felt like I was his only client. He went above and beyond his responsibilities in helping me buy my home. As a first time home buyer, I did not know the process and he was there to guide me through. He answered late night calls and gave me great insight on what I could and could not expect. He was strait and honest and didn’t sugar coat the truth, which I appreciated. I would highly recommend Tim Hiemstra, and we will definitely use him again if we ever sell our home.

Without a doubt, Tim Hiemstra went out of his way to make my dream of owning a home in Vallejo come true. Literally, within hours of sharing with Tim the things that were important to me in a home, he was able to show me several fantastic options. Tim was truly masterful in securing a great price and connecting me to other service providers who provided me with all of the things I needed to close the home. In addition, Tim relentlessly stayed on top of the mortgage company who took forever to close. Even once the deal expired due to the slow movement by the mortgage company, Tim was able to keep the deal together. If you are looking for someone who will go above and beyond throughout the entire real estate transaction, look no further than Tim. He is excited and passionate about finding people a place to call home. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

If you’re looking for the best, you’ve found him here. Tim worked hard to negotiate price and any and all repairs with seller. Tim is very personable with his clients, but don’t let that fool you, he is like a pit-bull when it comes to getting things done in negotiations with the seller, he is definitely on the top of his game. By the time you’re finished with your home buying experience you’ll find that Tim has become a friend. He is truly connected to Vallejo and the community and his business is located on Georgia St. in beautiful old down town Vallejo, right by where the farmers market is. Commitment, quality service, and excellent follow up. A really great guy all around. Highly recommended.

Tim, was great. He stepped up to the plate and hit a grand slam for our family. He never stopped working hard for us. If we needed to talk about something. He always picked up our call any time of day or night. This man said he would find us a beautiful home in a great neighborhood, and Tim was true to his word. I highly recommend Tim Hiemstra to anyone, who is in the market for a home.

Tim is a real estate master! Not only did Tim take the time to actually listen to my concerns, budgets and timeline he expertly directed me to the house I now call my home. Tim was never too busy to return my phone calls, emails and texts within minutes of receiving them. Tim kept me in “the loop” with the process of buying my first home. I can not thank Tim enough for all of his patience, respect and honesty when it came to my purchase. A wonderful agent who will treat you like a friend.

5 zuser20150524160556480

I recommend Tim as a real estate professional. He helped me buy my home, he negotiated and facilitated on my behalf and managed to reach my goal of Home Ownership! Any time I had questions or concerns he was available and knowledgeable. He and his team made buying a house a pleasant experience.

5 zuser20151108112206397

As a first time home buyer, Tim was very understanding of my concerns and the purchasing transition was smooth and organized. Very easy to talk to and allowed me to concentrate on my other everyday endeavors. Highly recommend!!!

My experience with Tim was above my expectations with his professionalism and sincere friendly approach to selling my Home. My Home had been in my Family for 75 years and it was more than a commodity. Tim took an approach to the property that made me feel like he had been a part of the Home. I had many options of listing my Home with Friends in the business and I am very happy I choose Tim, and would do it again in a minute if I needed that type of help selling property, and buying for that matter. I was very happy with Tim’s service, and would use him again over all my resources.

My wife and I met Tim in his Vallejo office – Napa River Realty well beyond his office hours. We were interested in a house on Ridge Avenue, Vallejo. We saw the house during the late hours of the evening and decided to make an offer. Understanding our interests and needs, Tim suggested an amount to offer, which we liked. He was completing paperwork for us way past 11 that evening. Less than 48 hours later, we received work the offer was moving in our favor. Tim worked hard for us, updating us on every communication he made with the selling agent. We are no experts on home buying but with Tim, we never felt like we had to be one. We closed on 12/24 and moved into our Home on 12/26. We are absolutely positive that with Tim we couldn’t have gotten this house. You want a house in Vallejo? You want Tim!

Tim was an excellent agent – I helped my mother buy a place out here since she moved from Philadelphia, and it was tough finding an affordable place in this market. Not only did we find something within our budget, but it’s beautiful. On the first day, he drove us around to various properties, and helped us narrow down our focus to neighborhoods that have an endearing, charming quality. He never rushed us, but he was focused and helped to speed up this process. Ours wasn’t the highest bid, but since it was an all cash offer, he was able to convince the seller to go with our offer. And he also pushed for further reduction in inspection repairs. Also, Tim was really gracious with my mom, who not only has a difficult time communicating in English (she’s Japanese), but is also adjusting to a new life without my dad (who recently passed away). So, we got lucky with Tim! I would without hesitation recommend him!

Tim was available within a few hours of inquiring on property. He was very professional and highly knowledgeable. The office staff was pleasant and easy to work with. He was able to help us meet all timeline goals in regards to purchase. We are exceptionally happy in our new condo and thank his office for everything to make it possible.

Tim and his team at Napa River Realty is above and beyond excellent. He is very enthusiastic and devoted agent. We went through a very long process with the lender and he is persistent to keep the seller and their Agent understand our situation. Tim would answer all your question and he is very good on keeping us inform with the process. I would recommend Napa River Realty to be one of the best real state agent. Thank you…

5 rjfjune

Tim and the entire team at Napa River Realty were excellent. Tim helped me find and buy the house that I wanted. I felt that Tim was representing my best interests in home searching and he was able to guide me through the home buying process. I would recommend Tim to anyone that is searching for a proactive, client centered and results oriented agent. I rate the whole team with five stars.


Tim provided the best customer service. He found the perfect house for us! He negotiated the price and got us a good deal for this home. I appreciate his expertise and advise on what needed to be done. He is a professional and pays attention to the details of every real estate transaction. He responded to all my calls and emails almost immediately, he puts his clients first! I highly recommend him.

Tim is a well informed and a very professional broker and realtor. He has so much patience and respect for his clients. Whenever you need him he is there for you from the beginning of the negotiation until escrow closes. If there seems to be a problem , he works with you and the mortgage officer to try and resolve it. In fact even after the keys , remotes etc. have been given to you. He even encourages you to call him if you have any concerns. Honesty is another one of his outstanding trait. He is really trustworthy! I definitely recommend him to both the seller and buyer.

5 bucas2345

Buying a house can be intimidating and overwhelming. When we called Tim on Father’s day to look at a house, he was there for us, friendly and knowledgeable. He and his team made the process very easy, with professionalism and understanding of our particular situation. Wonderful experience. Highly recommend Tim and his staff as the best real estate company in Vallejo.

5 user3302215

Tim was great! He has a team that is both professional and responsive. I am the client who just relentlessly questions just about everything. I ask and re-asked the same question three different ways and most people are ready to tell me to forget the whole thing ! ( I can’t help it, it’s just who I am) . But Tim never did, he answered every question or found somebody who could. I am big on detail and he definitely responded in kind. I would absolutely recommend Napa realty. Thank you! Tim, Michelle, Calvin and Nani

Tim H, and the entire team at Napa River exceeded our expectations! Napa River Realty truly made us feel welcome and its was an extremely pleasant experience buying a home in the region they specialize in. We never felt any pressure to make a rushed decision, and we ended up finding the perfect home for us and our two dogs. We are even thinking of buying an investment property and will ask Tim to represent us again when we are ready. We would recommend Tim H. to our friends and colleagues alike! A+I

Tim delivered extraordinary service and results. I arrived on a Wed. night; next day saw all the right homes; made an offer on the perfect home that night; had acceptance within 24 hours, despite multiple back-up offers. Whew! He’s a savvy negotiator. Tim exemplifies the collaborative process. He listened carefully to my wants and needs. He helped me make smart decisions. He protected my interests the entire time. And he hustled to get the deal done; it was magic to watch him work. In my eyes, he wins the Nobel prize for realtors. And his office is filled with delightful, first-class professionals, especially Michelle and Calvin. Best of all, the entire experience was positive, fun and exciting for me. Here I come Vallejo! Do yourself a favor, call Tim.

5 Luuke

Tim and his team are amazing! Without them we would not have our house. We called their office on a Thursday pm & Saturday Tim -the owner- spent whole day with our family showing 11 houses. The last one was our favorite so we made an offer right away. Due to other factors than Tim had no control over, the purchasing process became a rocky road but in the end we did get our house. Tim is highly responsive, always answers the phone, replies texts & emails and copied us on other communications regarding our house. He was there for inspections and stayed on top of all details, all the time! Even after we closed he stopped by, offered further assistance and totally unexpected gave us a gift as token of his appreciation! If you’re serious about getting house in the Vallejo area, Tim should be your only agent to consider. Thanks so much Tim and team @ Napa River Realty, you guys rock!!

5 VarylVintarum

Tim is a salesman extraordinaire, and it’s nice when someone like that is working for you. I was looking to buy and he made it very easy, since it was my first time buying Jackie Hesley and Tim ended up eating a lot of time explaining things to my wife and I. And they seemed to truly not have a problem with such, it made the whole experience so much better. And the mark of a good business owner, he surrounds himself with the best staff, they’re all really great people. I do have to specifically say that Jackie And Calvin Franklin were just a real pleasure to work with.

5 kshields45

3 day close! Tim and his team are one of the best real estate companies in the SF Bay area. Professional, efficient, and dedicate. I highly recommend Napa River Realty.

5 user1141931

My experience with Tim was incredible.. I shared with Tim exactly what I was looking for property wise and within 2 days we found a location and bought our home.. I really have to say Tim has gone above and beyond than our expectations.. the whole Napa River Reality group has been awesome to work with..

5 cea5008

I cannot say enough good things about Tim!!! In less than 4 weeks, he helped me find my perfect home, got my offer accepted early, and walked me through the process of closing! I will recommend Tim to everyone I meet who is looking for a home. He goes above and beyond for his clients – you can’t find a better realtor!

5 sorasilva770

Tim is very helpful and knowledgeable in the area. He was consistently professional and kept me informed throughout the whole process in my home purchase, especially for someone like myself who has crazy insane working schedules.

5 aguilareduardo1977

Tim helped me sell my house last month.he was very professional and helpful. He explained every single step on my transaction I’m very happy with his service. Easy to work with Tim. I truly recommend to anyone… 🙂

5 Igal35

Great and professional service from start to finish including negotiation with challenging tenant and trouble shooting of different issues that come up during these listing months

5 Eiko g

Great help selling mom’s home. Tim and his team helped me get the home ready for sale and even help dump items. With the stress of taking care of mom and trying to get the house on the market, I greatly appreciated all the help. He and his team made the home selling process convenient. Thank you!

5 lindacatperkins

Tim was right on with the price and timing for the sale of my house. His staff was always there to help me. I am very pleased with his service and highly recommend him and his team.

5 thewillowconcept

Tim and Michelle were fantastic to work with! I recommended Tim to help a previous tenant and an employee purchase homes in the area and hearing positive things in the area. When it was time to sell, I knew he’d be the one to help me with the process. His team spent the time and energy to truly understand what I needed as a client and to deliver on my needs. I will definitely ask for their help when looking for my next place in Vallejo!

5 user931467

Tim was always there when I needed him. There was immediate follow up. All my questions were promptly answered. He was always available with the help of his efficient staff. I could not be more satisfied.

5 zuser20170814214744330

Eric and Tim initially met with us to purchase our new home. They helped us through the stressful time of buying the home. We also listed our house for sale through Napa River Realty.

5 ScottCarroll3

I highly recommend Tim! His experience, reputation, interaction style, and negotiation skills are stellar. I had worked with another local agent before meeting Tim and lost two solid offers. Tim was able to help us find an ideal home and put together an offer that the seller accepted and closed in 24 days. I would undoubtedly work with Tim again.

5 KeepLooking

I’m grateful to have worked with Tim. He was right on top of the process every step of the way. His willingness to help the sellers agent with his resources to keep the process continuing in a timely process as well as bring me back to earth when my anxiety would get the best of me. Tim is a realtor that wears many hats well. If you want a realtor that will go to bat for you 100% then Tim and his team are the choice to make. Many thanks to Tim and his team for getting us through the process of selling our house. Tim realty delivered on all promises, and was extremely thoughtful & pro-active of our concerns. He really is an A+++ realtor & you would be luck to work with him.
