ABOUT TIM -
Hi, I’m Tim Gordon
Since I was a kid, I’ve found happiness building or fixing just about anything. It started with go-karts, then cars and eventually real estate. After 5 years in the corporate world I turned my love of real estate and projects into a career buying, fixing and redeveloping real estate in San Diego.
I thrive in helping solve problems that can seem so overwhelming and complicated when it comes to selling a house. Following my company and personal mission to be kind, honest and clear in how I can help.
Outside of work, I love to spend time with my fiancé Sara, surfing, traveling and being involved in the community. I have been a Big Brother in Big Brothers Big Sisters since 2013 and a leadership mentor for at risk youth through Stoked Mentoring and Urban Surf 4 Kids two fantastic organizations in Southern California.
When buying a property, I understand these are the skills that help make me easy to work with. I hope my brief introduction allows you to feel more comfortable with me and my company. I believe it is important to be visible and accessible, allowing you to know who you are working with.
