    Buying or selling a home is a big deal, most likely the biggest deal of your life. You need someone on your side of the bargaining table that you can trust. Someone who will communicate with you however you prefer, via text, email, phone or in person. Someone who will listen to your needs, and has the experience to get the job done. I would be honored to earn your business.

    I am very involved in leadership having served as President of the SLO Association of Realtors®, as well as Regional Chair for California Association of Realtors®. I was voted SLO Association Realtor® of the Year in 2011 by his peers. For fun, I coach two soccer teams, and help run CCSoccer, a Central Coast Adult Co-ed, and CCSoccer 35+ Soccer Mens league.

    The Central Coast of California is my home, let me help make it yours too!

    Tim and Hayley went far beyond the call of duty as they helped us prepare the home ahead of time and walked with us, professionally, through every phase of both buying and selling. We knew that they had our best interests in mind as they worked hard to get us the best possible deal and to make the process as smooth as possible.

    Amongst the many ready to capitalize on the most substantial purchase of one's life, Comet Realty was a rare example of grace, competency, and tireless effort on their customer's behalf. With their no-nonsense, personal, and efficient operation, Hayley, Tim, and Comet Realty navigated the complexities of our many-months-long short-sale purchase with a deft and patient hand, securing a remarkable deal and somehow managing our anxiety through the process. The team at Comet Realty helped us find the perfect home. Consummate professionals, they managed every step of our our drawn-out short sale, explaining and simplifying the process for us while constantly advocating our side with the bank. Exceedingly generous with their time, humor, and substantial experience in San Luis Obispo county, we can't recommend them highly enough.

    Tim and his team at Comet Realty got to know my family well enough to provide some excellent guidance when we purchased our home. They always took my calls, answered my questions, and delivered what can only be described as exceptional customer service throughout the process. They helped us put together a competitive bid without overpaying and got a house I am glad to call home. One year later I still feel like moving to this neighborhood was the best decision we made for our family.

    Tim & Hayley made buying our first home a memorable, seamless experience! Their humor and honesty was refreshing and entertaining. They are two incredibly personable individuals who answered all our questions with their expertise and wisdom, always had time to check out places, and made sure someone from the Comet team was available to help us in any way and anytime.

    Tim, Hayley and the whole crew at Comet Realty were professional, patient, responsive to our needs and wishes in helping us find our dream home and they're all very personable. They listened and were extremely patient with us from the beginning of the long process to its recent successful completion. We knew they were good, because they helped our son's family find a great house, but they exceeded all our expectations. We highly recommend them.

    If you are looking to purchase property on the Central Coast, call Comet Realty. I yelp'd (is that a thing?) and contacted Tim in 2011. We now own three Central Coast homes, all located, negotiated, purchased, and managed by Tim and Hayley @ Comet Realty. If you want someone to work on your behalf rather than work for a commission, Comet is the way to go.

    Tim & Comet Realty helped us negotiate a purchase of our home in 2012. We weren't really sure if we would be able to do it, as we were moving from out-of-town to the central coast and had some firm timelines, but they helped us from afar, showed us around town when we made a day-trip from LA, and - finally - helped us seal the deal when we found 'the one'! I had owned a home once before previously, in another state, but had no idea how things worked in California. Tim quickly got us up to speed on the process and a year & a half later we're so grateful to be in our home. Comet Realty are experts in their field, yet very easy-going and helpful to newbies like us. Thanks you guys!!

    I have gone through the process of searching and buying houses a number of times, but never worked with as straight forward and honest person as Tim Townley. Although my search took a while (I had specific ideas of where I wanted to be), he was positive, responsive (on a moments notice) and extremely helpful in the process. One of the biggest things about Comet Realty is that they care about your needs and wants. They are not afraid to point out possible negatives about a house you like, as well as, possibly unseen, positives. In a word, Tim Townley & Comet Realty are the BEST!

    After working with Comet Realty, we would never use anyone else to buy a home. We have worked with real estate agents before, but often found that they were unable to deliver on initial promises or expectations. In comparison, working with Tim and Hayley at Comet Realty was straightforward and very pleasant. They told us exactly what to expect from the start and what we needed to consider in this active market. They worked tirelessly with other real estate agents and our lender to ensure the contact negotiation and inspections were completed efficiently and effectively, and she was always willing to do additional research to address questions related to our specific property and requirements. Hayley seemed to have an intuitive grasp of what would work best for us and our lifestyle, and alerted us to potential properties or considerations that we were unaware of. She always conducted herself ethically towards us, as well as the other agents and sellers. Tim remained calm and professional even when last minute inspection and lending issues arose and always found mutually beneficial solutions to any challenges. Not matter what the issue or question, Tim and Hayley dealt with it in a timely and professional manner. They are both very personable, patient and honest and it was a pleasure working with them. They are up to date with real estate regulations, market conditions and technologies, all of which made our home buying process easy and successful. Even after we closed on our home, they continued to assist us in the transfer process due to circumstances that caused us to be out of state during the home changeover. They watered our garden, arranged for services to be connected, and even checked in on our property until we could return! Throughout the entire process we felt cared for as individuals and, most importantly, I could trust Tim and Hayley to follow through on their promises. If we had not used Comet Realty, it is likely we would not have successfully purchased our current home. They ensured the process was efficient and that any unforeseen circumstances were addressed in a timely and effective manner. We cannot recommend the Comet Realty team highly enough for anyone who wants individualized, competent, and caring home buying or selling services. Thank you Comet Realty!
