About Me

Tim Thomas Realtor®, CRS, ABR, GRI

What do all those letters stand for?  Those accreditations did not come easily and show my commitment to stay on top in the Real Estate Profession and for the benefit of my customers and clients. In over twenty-five years as a real estate Broker, I have helped hundreds of people successfully buy and sell properties.

I grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina. I am a graduate of the University of NC at Chapel Hill and also received an MBA from Georgia State University. Upon graduation, I began a career with a large corporation in sales and marketing but not before marrying Beth Curry, an Atlanta native whom I met in college. Moves were made to Atlanta, Georgia… Houston, Texas and Cincinnati, Ohio. After corporate life, I built homes for a few years and then operated a large contractor lumber company on Hilton Head Island, SC. In the mid 1980´s, Beth and I moved to Greensboro, NC where I became heavily involved in real estate as a broker and am still to this day here in Tryon.

Licensed in both North and South Carolina, I have specialized in nearly all of the conventional types of real estate: residential, commercial, subdivision development, investment, and land. I am a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) of which fewer than 6% of NC Realtors hold this designation. I am an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR).  My interest in land has led me to be active with the NC Chapter of the Realtors Land Institute of which I have served as President.  I was also formerly an Accredited Land Consultant (ALC), a highly sought after designation that very few Realtors in NC have achieved.   All of this gives credence to the reason why I have been so successful  in helping my clients achieve their objective. When I was with a RE/MAX in Greensboro, NC, I attained the RE/MAX Hall of Fame and achieved the Platinum level of sales production for each of my last four years.  In Tryon, I formed my own Real Estate company, Tryon Realty, in 2003.  I have been directly involved with the Board of Realtors in Tryon and active in the community.

On a personal side, I have always been active in community organizations, including Rotary and Kiwanis.  I have played the cello since childhood and have been a member of the Symphony Orchestra of Rutherford County.  Beth and I have two grown children, a son and a daughter.
