Adam and Valerie Timms are the founders and driving force of Timms Real Estate. Their combined experience in real estate spans over 28 years, and together they have achieved some amazing results and awards, both personally in sales and together as the owners of Timms Real Estate.

Previous to creating Timms, Valerie was highly awarded as salesperson and business owner of a franchise in a major Australasian real estate group. Those awards include:

Adam and Valerie are both passionate about marketing, culture, and systems. Part of their brief in running their company is “If its not fun, it’s not done”, and Team Timms love the culture and environment they have created. They have grown from their first Timms office in 2011, to now opening their fourth office in 2015. They also manage a growing rent roll, and help investors across Adelaide to maintain their property portfolio’s. Helped by Sarah Shiel and Judy Weckert (Executive Assistants), along with Jo Wilkin their Operations Manager, and Team Timms, they have systems and processes that create success with each client and team transaction.

Between them they have 3 girls and one boy aged 14, 11, 7, and 4. Living in the Adelaide Hills, the 4 alpacas, 3 dogs, 1 guinea pig, and a cat, add to the madness to ensure organised chaos. Life is full and busy! They do say, “if you want a job done well – give it to someone busy.”

Valerie and Adam’s dream is to offer fabulous opportunities to individuals who join their team as they expand across Adelaide, and to keep growing a client base of ‘raving fans’ who are happy to refer them and their team to family and friends.

Valerie and Adam continue to actively sell property so they can lead by example, and still enjoy each nuance of property sales from the marketing to the final negotiation.

There are two really important things I have learnt about real estate. First, to be absolutely committed to achieving a great result for every property sale I handle. Second, continually striving to set new benchmarks for professional excellence has made my client service exceptional.

Being a farmer taught me to work hard 7 days a week. Then I enjoyed a successful 20 years in the rural industry until a meeting with Anthony Toop in 1993 led me to real estate at age 46. Right from the start, I loved everything about real estate and I’m proud to have been with Toop&Toop my entire career, because we share a passion for excellence and innovation.

I constantly strive to make each year better than before by improving the way I market and sell property; so I’m very proud that my professional qualities have been recognised as follows: 

– 2008 – first salesperson inducted to Real Estate Institute of South Australia Hall of Fame 

– 2007 Real Estate Institute of Australia National Awards for Excellence – Residential Salesperson of the Year

– 2007 2006, 2005 Real Estate Institute of South Australia Awards for Excellence – Top Salesperson of the Year 

– 2009, 2008, 2007 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000, 1998, 1996 – Toop&Toop Sales Partner of the Year 

My fantastic team – Simon Veitch, second Sales Partner and Susan Ide, Vendor Manager share my commitment to creating the business models to help us enhance client service. Our team capability is second to none in South Australia with proven expertise and a calm, supportive approach to guide you through all the critical steps of buying and selling real estate.

Our client’s needs come first, so we take a strategic approach to our business and meet every day to plan, action and review progress on our sales campaigns. We are perceptive about people and current market conditions, are super-organised and make full use of every Toop resource at our disposal on our client’s behalf.

Like the rest of the team, I love helping clients achieve their real estate dreams and I know that the personal attention and highly professional service we give makes their experience one to remember with pleasure.
