Values: What does that mean for real estate success? Photo

Here Valerie Timms shares what Timms Real Estate stand for and how that makes a difference to your property sale or management.

With our industry maligned by some as unscrupulous and dishonest, Adelaide real estate leaders owe it to the community to work with their teams to foster and reward authenticity and integrity.

Timms stands for old fashioned values with a modern approach, which filters into all our practice with our clients, with our community and with each other.


That’s what we stand for and we believe these values unite us to achieve the very best in Adelaide real estate. Here’s how:

Respect bares golden fruit

From respect flows so much, and we know it comes back to us in spades.

Showing respect makes us better communicators. Ensures we’re quick to respond and show we care. Respect inspires integrity and honesty in how we support each other and our clients. Respect inspires compassion and empathy, and we share that with our community.

We carry this value to help us make sure the sales or purchase process is as easy as possible, whilst achieving fabulous outcomes and results for everyone involved.

Innovation in technology and practice

A great example is our recent website launch and partnership with Swedish tech giant Diakrit. We can now take full advantage of Marketing Direct, where artificial intelligence and social media team up to attract more buyers, without spending thousands on real estate portals.

Expertise and excellence in advice and service

In partnership with the Real Estate Institute of South Australia, each of our team are trained to the highest accredited professional standards, which we supplement in-house with monthly training workshops.

This includes our unique training as Liveability Real Estate Specialists, who understand what homeowners and tenants consider most important and how to unlock the hidden value of a home.

This guides us to provide the most professional support that ensures so many of our clients remain clients for life.

Teamwork is success for all

A great example is the investment in our team this year. We’re moving. We’re growing. Our new office inspires a collaborative culture, with a gym, yoga room and café. We want our staff to build their careers with us and share the triumphs as a team for the long-term.

Community is what makes us strongest

We have been family-owned and operated in the southern Adelaide community since we opened. This is our home. Our clients are our community. We understand our responsibility to share in building a stronger community for us all.

We can proudly say we have given our time and patronage to raise well over $100,000 to notable causes. Our philosophy is that most of us are born with two hands. One to help ourselves and the other to lend.
