Timothy E. Desmond - Stribling & Associates

You really do have to be honest with people. That's what it's all about...building trust. My customers know that if they ask me a question, they will get the truth.


Tim Desmond, a Stribling Senior Vice President, is a lifelong New Yorker with an encyclopedic knowledge of all Manhattan neighborhoods; he brings to his profession a sharp sense of real estate values and excellent skills as a negotiator. In 25 years of brokering deals, Tim has sold everything from single family houses to lofts, condominiums to cooperative apartments.

Tim has specialized in the sale of New York City townhouses and has partnered with Linda Melnick for the past 12 years in the sale of single family and multi-unit investment properties. For his investors, Tim provides hand-on, highly personalized service and keeps the properties tenanted through Stribling with a vacancy rate of less than 1%, with the goal to maintain and improve the properties, grow the rents and minimize loss factor.

My Approach

"A 'never say die' attitude and a 24-hour rule: no matter what happens, suffer for 24 hours and then let it go. "


Thomas Congdon on the sale of their townhouse:

"Connie and I want to thank you once more, this time on paper, for your wonderful efforts. We were stunned by the amount of effort and imagination you put into the task, and we are very sure that without you the results would not have been anything like they were."
