Tim Picken

Tim’s comfortable interaction with people has stood the test of time and he is considered a leader in the real estate industry. He’s known success as a real estate agent since he was 20 years old, coveted with awards during his tenure as Partner at both Kay and Burton, and Jellis Craig.

Clients often turn into friends and while Tim is clear eyed about the ups and downs of the business, he believes he’s chosen a career that can genuinely help people. Therefore it was a natural fit for Tim to transition into the advisory side of the industry where he now represents buyers on the acquisition and advises sellers through the marketing and readying of homes for sale in conjunction with the best selling agents in the local Boroondara and Stonnington areas.

Tim prides himself on being a great Dad to his 11yr old twins, Benny and Lulu, and plays an active part with them in the community through schooling, sport and recreation, and is a corporate sponsor of the Glen Iris Gladiators JFC.

    It is with great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for your assistance in finding us our family home (in our dream street too!) in the Gascoigne Estate, East Malvern. Engaging you to represent us was the best decision we made. You made us feel like we were your only clients and gave us your utmost attention, expertise and knowledge about the local market. Your insights, contacts and strategy in securing our family home can only be applauded and admired. I doubt many people would have been able to replicate what you managed to achieve, especially given the number of interested parties vying for the property you secured for us. We thank you once again for your amazing efforts and would have no hesitations in engaging your help again should we be in the market to transact again.

    We are very happy with the purchase of our new property in Hawthorn. Tim’s real estate market experience, contacts and advice in negotiation was extremely helpful to the point we would not have secured this property without him. I would highly recommend Tim and his expertise to anyone looking to use a Buyers Advocate to purchase their next property.

    We had previously considered engaging a buyers advocate to assist us, and when my wife first contacted Tim Picken, it was clearly evident we would benefit from his help and expertise. We secured our lovely family home (before scheduled auction) due to Tim’s savvy and expert strategy, and for a price lower than the expected auction price. I can say without any doubt that we would not have secured the property without his help, and we are so thankful we engaged Tim and allowed him to direct our search for our beautiful home.
