Our Goal: For the client to be at the end of the buying or selling journey knowing that the Lyons Team maintained the clients best interest at all times and that the best possible result is achieved.
Our Values: These values are what we consider to be our code of ethics. We take for granted that this is just how we should treat each other but, sadly, we often find that these values can’t always be taken for granted.
Following are testimonials, which we believe help us to show you that we “do what we say”
As a first-time homebuyer, I had some reservations approaching this fast-paced, sellers’ market. Tim was able to assist me each step of the way to ensure that the process was as easy as possible. He would take into account my current requirements and would always provide updates through email on the newest listings in my desired area. He also helped assess my financial situation to best assist in the pricing strategies that are needed in this market, when all locations are going over asking price, and was quick to take action to secure my new home successfully. Tim was always available to advise me through each step of the way and kept in constant contact until we finalized the purchase. His patience and enthusiasm really helped me learn what was necessary to go forward in this market, while his knowledge of the industry and research helped me make a winning bid. Thank you Tim for all your support and would gladly request his services again in the future!

I am delighted to have bought my first home with the help of Tim Lyons whom i met during an open house in the summer.We just moved in and are busy settling down right in the middle of this winter and early in the year but looking back, I feel lucky to have benefitted from his guidance and understanding of my inexperience throughout the house-hunting adventure in the midst of a pandemic and unprecedented bidding wars in Ottawa.
Had a pleasure to work with Tim Lyon for selling our two town houses, one in last spring and one just few weeks ago.
What a professional guy he is, acted so promptly from A-Z.One of the houses was sold way over asking due to his professional tactics. His commission rate is very reasonable too.
I highly recommend the guy
If you need an agent, call Tim Lyons. I am very impressed with the service I received from Tim for my first home. I saw a new listed property on the market that I really liked. Tim booked a visit for the next day, we then did an offer on the house which was accepted right away. He knows his stuff and will not take advantage of you! -Véronique Michaud
On behalf of Carol and myself, I would like to thank you, once again, for the excellent representation you provided in handling the sale of our home. Your dedication and hard work paid off in more ways than one would imagine and we are truly grateful for your effort and hard work and most importantly, the results achieved. Rest assured, we will not hesitate to highly recommend your services, should the opportunity arise.
I have recently listed and sold my house with Tim as my broker. He was friendly and professional which made the whole thing as stress free as possible. I would not hesitate to use Tim again or to recommend him to my friends

Tim was a great realtor who was flexible, easy to talk to and knowledgeable. He did a great job in helping me to get the best price for my home during this Covid situation. I would recommend him to anyone.
I used Tim to sell my home and purchase my dream house. Tim helped me achieve the highest amount any home has sold for within my neighbourhood. He handled the negotiations perfectly, saved me thousands of dollars in realtor fees and made sure I had limited stress during the entire process. If you’re on the market for a realtor, I highly recommend Tim!
My husband and I were looking for a home and Tim was able to go to great lengths to help us with that. He helped us find our dream home! I don’t know how many times I had to call him about questions and he answered all of them with no hesitations. If he didn’t know the answer right away, he would look into it and get back to us very quickly! I would recommend him as an agent to help you find the house of your dreams! He’s the best there is!

Tim is an amazing real estate agent. He is down to earth and very easy to talk to. He really knows how to read people. In a matter of three days he was able to get a sense of my husband and I and what we wanted in a first home. In that short amount of time he was able to find us the perfect home in the perfect neighbourhood. He kept us in the loop with how negotiations were proceeding, but didn’t bog us down with the small interactions that could have increased our anxiety in getting our home. Another big perk was that we were able to complete the offer and final signing over the phone and via email during the evening, which was very important for us because we have a toddler at home.
Tim is also a great negotiator. Even after all the papers were signed he was still working to get us a better deal.
We are so happy that we met Tim! We had a great experience and will be recommending him to all of our friends. Thank you, Tim!

“Thanks Tim for all your work, you ensured that my pricing was at market value to ensure a successful sale in a buyers’ market.”
“From the beginning, Tim stood firmly in our corner and rallied to sell our home in what quickly became a challenging buyers’ market. Unlike far too many of the realtors who repeatedly fail to offer constructive feedback (even after showings), Tim was consistently courteous, enthusiastic, and accessible. He went above and beyond the parameters of his job description and always maintained an optimistic approach to bringing us closer to a deal! His level of patience and diligence was truly remarkable and we genuinely appreciated all of his hard work on our behalf.”
Tim! Thanks so much for everything and enjoy the rest of your summer!!
Wow, our house sold at the asking price in just ONE day! All thanks to Tim’s effective strategies and diligent work. Tim strove first and foremost to protect the interests of his clients, and went above and beyond to ensure we could achieve what we wanted to. He responded promptly to phone calls and emails, and listened to our ideas. On top of this, Tim was very friendly, kind, and easy-going. We are grateful to the Lyons team and all their help in allowing us to sell our house quickly. We would not hesitate to contact Tim again in the future!

I’d recommend Tim to anyone that believes buying a home should be seen as one of the most important decisions anyone will make.
Why pay 5% commission? Mr Lyons provided with his Kahootz partner great advice for the sale of our current residence in Riverside South; advising us when best to put our home on the market, setting a realistic and achievable asking price based on years of experience and intimate knowledge of Riverside South’s residential market. They were right, we had lots of interest in our townhouse and sold in no time. Entering the seller market at the right time, a realistic asking price were key to our selling and removing the “first right of refusal” worries when looking at a future property. Tim’s advice regarding prospective properties, be it future resale value, location choice, traffic, choosing the right home for our growing family and not settling was very much appreciated. After viewing many possibilities, we targeted a particular home and let Mr Lyons negotiate the asking price to within our comfort purchase price doing so just before an open house. Well, offer was accepted and we can’t be more happy to be moving to a home that will meet our needs and offer us great resale value in the future.
I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Mr Lyons and the Lyons Team to any prospective home seller or buyer. Don’t give away your profits, meet with Tim’s team and let them convince you why you can’t go wrong entrusting the sale of your home or the purchase of a future residence in their hands.
As a first time home buyer I was very enthusiastic, needed some guidance, and had a ton of questions. I was lucky enough to form a business relationship with Tim and he was able to help with all aspects of the buying process. Tim took the time to sit and talk with me about what I wanted, all the steps involved, and how we could work together to meet my goals. He was very easy to communicate with, even when I was calling him at all hours, and was ready to help me with any concerns I had. In the end, I was able to purchase the home I wanted, with very little problem. Tim showed me that purchasing your first home isn’t nearly as intimidating as it first seems.
I would recommend Tim and the Lyons Team to any future buyer (or seller) to make buying/selling a home a smooth and simple process.
“We were in the market to first sell our first house then immediately buy our dream home. We met Tim by just talking on the phone about one of his properties. The positive and personal impression of that call made it very easy for us to choose Tim as our agent. We had a very tight fall time window to sell on a street with a few other similar homes on the market. Tim’s knowledge, connections and recommendations presented our house with a competitive market value. Meanwhile he helped us zone down on our dream house, which we conditionally bought hoping to sell within one month time frame. After having countless number of viewings and in the nick of time, Tim surprised us with a customer through his connections. Our house was her first dream home. Tim was our Santa this season, because of his personal, honest hard work, 2 families found their dream homes this Chirstmas.
It was our first time selling and buying a home. Being new to the process, we were unsure of what to expect and how to navigate the Ottawa real estate market. Do we need to do any work to our home before listing? What price should we list at? What type of interest should we expect in our home? We had lots of questions and the process was daunting and intimidating.
We chose to work with Tim for a number of reasons. After meeting with him the first time it was obvious that his experience and expertise informed his approach and the strategies he used when representing his clients. His strong negotiating skills were an asset, one that came into play multiple times as we worked with him. He also understood what we were looking for, both in terms of house amenities and the lifestyle we wanted to provide for our family.
Tim guided us through the experience, providing advice and answering our many questions. We were thrilled when our home sold quickly after receiving several offers. We were then faced with needing to find our new home in what was turning out to be a fast paced, competitive spring market. Our situation was further complicated by the timeline in which we wanted to find and move into our new home – we were expecting a second baby mid-May! Throughout the whole process Tim represented our best interests and was crucial to successfully purchasing our new house.
We found a house that we love. One that is quickly becoming our family home. In the end, we were able to bring our daughter home from the hospital to it!

Selling a house is never easy especially in todays market where there is a LOT of competition but Tim and his team at Keller Williams Solid Rock Realty did the job for us. I would recommend Tim to anyone who would buy or sell a house. He is easy to talk with and easy to reach( answers emails and phone calls even after midnight). Works hard for you and always has his clients’ best interest in mind. Thank you Tim for making this experience of selling our house a positive one and kudos to the Lyons Team and Keller Williams Solid Rock Realty!
Tim Lyons acted as our broker in the purchase of our new house. He guided us through the biggest financial undertaking of our lives and saved us thousands of dollars in the process. His success lies in his integrity, knowledge and experience in the field and, most importantly, in the fact that he really cares about people. He helped us choose the right house for us without any pressure providing an honest critique on the pros, cons and value of the property. Once we had decided, he acted swiftly and skillfully to ensure that we secured the deal at the best possible price.
We would recommend Tim to any perspective client, buyer or seller, and would definitely use his services again. His knowledge, skill, follow through and personal touch were much appreciated.
Wow! Our house sold in only 2 days!!! You are truly an A+ professional realtor with an unbelievable patience. We will recommend you strongly to anyone. Thank you Tim.
After trying to sell our home privately for over a month, Tim Lyons sold out house in less than 5 days at 97% of asking price. Tim is hardworking, ambitious and dedicated to his craft and has his clients best interest at heart. He went over and above for our listing. He hired an amazing professional photographer to create a virtual tour and used many of his other resources which were all instrumental in selling our home. We would not hesitate to recommend Tim to any prospective sellers or buyers as he is a straight shooter with his finger on the pulse of the real estate market in Ottawa.
Tim Lyons was terrific and I certainly would recommend him to anyone in the market to
purchase a property. He was very prompt to set up appointments to view the properties my son and I saw online and he was also very quick at getting our offer in to the seller and to get conditions and etc. signed off by everyone concerned. This was of significant importance to me as I flew in from Florida to help my son make the purchase and had less than 3 days time to view the properties and to finalize the sale before heading back. Tim was great to work with and if it were not for him my son may not have been able to get the property he wanted and at such a good price. He also recommended a great legal firm to us, which we have been quite satisfied with. Kudos to Tim.
We had a very positive experience with Tim as our agent. We knew that it was a buyer’s market and it was going to be a challenge to sell. There was a lot of competition out there. Tim was extremely professional and was always available at any time day or night every day of the week (both with phone and email). He worked hard for us and made the selling experience a very positive one. He always had our best interests in mind. Thank you Tim for taking a stressful situation in selling a home and making it a positive experience for us. We wouldn’t hesitate again in using Tim to sell a home in the future.
I had an incredible experience with Tim as my agent. He provided excellent advice throughout the entire process; he patiently answered all my questions and soothed my sellers’ jitters. His negotiating skills are truly impressive and are second to none; it was amazing to watch him in action. Tim even managed to get more 30k more than what I had initially intended to list my house at. I would highly recommend him as an agent to anybody and will happily have him represent me again in the future.
We just want to thank you for helping us sell our home in a very short time only, we just had a great positive experienced with the Team and we didn’t regret our decision in asking their professional service to represent us in selling our home. At first we tried to sell our home on our own through Grapevine, we had good showings for 2 weeks but didn’t received an offer after a total of 12 showings, during those 2 weeks we also received several calls and emails from other agents offering their services, but when we decided to go for an agent, we picked your Team primarily because of the low fee that they offer and we also feel that they are really good in what they do after talking to them. And true enough we made the right decision because just after 2 days in the market and in only 2 showings, we received a solid offer and eventually sold our home. We are very pleased with the result and would really recommend them to anyone. They’re just the best!

When we first met Tim we hadn’t even decided to sell our house and buy a new one. After briefly speaking to Tim we knew he had the experience and know-how to sell our house. When we decided to buy a new house, which Tim assisted with, and we had to sell our house in a short timeframe we didn’t hesitate to give Tim a call. When he came to our house his knowledge of the industry really showed. The combination of this confidence and experience made it a no-brainer. His suggestions and hard work truly got us top dollar for our property. The process was quick and stress free. Sold in 8 days!
On top of this business acumen Tim was very personable and easy to deal with. We felt that we were dealing with a friend who was always looking out for our best interests throughout the buy and sell transactions.
When it comes time for our next move, there’s no doubt who we’ll be calling!

My home was in Copeland Park, and I had been trying to sell on my own for about 6 weeks, we had a lot of showings, everyone loved the house, but the house was not selling. We were getting discouraged and had started thinking about renting it out in case we did not sell.
One day my neighbour Steve came by and said he knows a good Realtor (Tim), I took Tim’s business card from him (I forgot to call him). A few days later Tim calls me and offers me an aggressive rate, we invite him over to our house and he says he can sell the house in 1 week, I did not believe him and said to him I will give you 2 months to sell. He sold our house in 4 days at a price we wanted, we are very happy with him and will definitely use his services in the future. Our neighbours were amazed at the speed of the transaction.

I was trying to sell my house privately for a few weeks before Tim approached me that he could help me to sell the house within one week. I was running out of time because I had already bought my new property so I decided to give Tim a chance although I was very much sceptical. Well Tim kept his word and my house was sold not in a week but in three days. Thank you Tim.

One night I got a call from Tim. I was listed with Grapevine at the time and had at least 15 people come through my house. I was getting a little discouraged. I agreed to meet and talk with Tim and he offered me an amazing aggressive rate. I signed without hesitation. After only 8 days my house was sold! I was very relieved and satisfied. Tim was great during the negotiation process and I was happy with the final sale. The whole house selling process was smooth sailing since Tim was encouraging, positive, enthusiastic and efficient. I would recommend him to anyone. You won’t be disappointed.

What type of real estate service did my wife and I receive from Tim? We received timely, cost-effective and professional customer service that generated results. We had a firm sale at the price we wanted in less than two weeks of listing our house with Tim. We highly recommend Tim and would definitely use him again in the future!

Peter and I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for everything you’ve done during our house sale and purchase. Your knowledge and professionalism were everything we were hoping for when we embarked on this journey. When we hit challenges along the way, you were always available, willing to discuss options and try new strategies, and ultimately we were successful in selling our house and finding our new home. You were great to work with; we appreciated that while you seemed like a friendly maritimer, you were quick to show your strong negotiating skills when required! We always felt that you were working hard for us and you had our best interests at heart.
Thanks for everything and we hope to stay in touch,

Tim helped us understand why we weren’t succeeding on Grapevine (change to “selling privately” if it’s not good to mention Grapevine specifically) and got us the exposure we needed on MLS with an amazing 360 virtual tour of our home. Interest in our property picked up overnight with 7 showings in the first four days! He guided us well on pricing decisions and was instrumental in the negotiations with our final buyer. Even after everything was signed, he went the extra mile and took our buyers through their final walk-through to represent our interests while we were out of town. Tim is a smart no-nonsense real estate agent, with the added bonus of good business sense and amazing accessibility…I don’t think many agents answer their phones at 2:30am!! Thanks Tim!

Thank you very much for helping us get our house sold
A friend introduced Tim when we mentioned we were selling our house. We found out using Tim as our agent was an excellent selection. He worked his due diligence and magic(experiences, relationships, …), got our house sold with good price in short time. Also we loved his discounted commission.

“We had listed our home through Grapevine, but after a week, we decided to have Tim represent us. It was the best decision we ever made. Our pictures had not even been posted on MLS and we already had potential buyers. A waste, since the pictures and 3D tour that Tim had provided for our home were absolutely breathtaking. Thanks to his great negotiating skills, he was able to sell our house within a week. We have been very pleased with the service that we have received from Tim. We don’t think he sleeps. He was always keeping us updated on new developments and always willing to answer any questions or concerns through the process and ensuring that conditions were met. We would definitely recommend him to all of our friends and family who are looking to have their house sold quickly for top dollar. “

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
RE: 28 INDIAN ROAD, OTTAWA
We just sold our house! Thanks to Tim of Keller Williams Solid Rock Realty and the team for selling our house within a few days after it was placed in MLS. Initially, we listed our house for sale in Grapevine and it didn’t work out. So, we decided to use Tim’s expert services out of all the others that contacted us. Through his sharp negotiation skills, Tim came through with brilliant results overcoming many tough obstacles. We felt very comfortable dealing with him and we can now move onto our new house.
If you are planning to buy or sell a house, you owe it to yourself to give Tim a call. You won’t regret it.

I received an unsolicited e-mail from Tim after unsuccessfully attempting to sell my home privately in Ottawa while residing in Toronto. His was one of a number of unsolicited e-mails from agents which I was tempted to ignore. I’m very glad I didn’t. Tim and I discussed in detail what would be a reasonable asking price when compared to what neighbouring homes had sold for. I intuitively felt that the number was right and that he wasn’t simply telling me what I wanted to hear. I had received a couple of evaluations from other agents which I knew were unrealistically high. Tim promised that the selling process would be done without any inconvenience to me and he kept his word. I received an offer the first time the home was viewed. Tim negotiated a great price. A strong negotiator, the one you want on your side. Tim was very attentive and supportive, which is particularly important when you’re trying to sell from a distance. Tim is a top notch agent that I would highly recommend to anyone. Oh, and I didn’t mention that his commission was a very attractive one…

To whom it may concern,
I highly recommend Tim for the following reasons:
I owned a home on Uplands Drive I had it listed with a realtor and the results were unsuccessful. After it expired Tim called me and asked to come and visit, to talk about the sale of my home. I ended up listing my home with Tim and the end result was; my home was sold in 2 weeks. Not only was my home sold in 2 weeks, Tim saved me over $9,000.00 in commissions. His negotiating skills proved to be superior; the reason why I say this is it took a lot of negotiations back and forth to bring this deal to success. A few times during negotiations of the sale of my home, I truly thought the deal was dead. But Tim kept a positive attitude and kept reopening the negotiations to bring it to a satisfactory situation to both buyer and seller. I was so impressed with his skills that I also used him for the purchase of my new home. He also during that transaction proved to be very efficient and competent and I also saved a great deal of money on the purchase of my new home through his strong negotiating skills.
So if you are in the market to buy or sell your home, do yourself a favour and call Tim. I highly recommend Tim and it was a pleasure to deal with him and we were always so impressed with his customer service.
