Change is exciting, and scary. Spring is a time of change and renewal.  After 12 years with the Keller Williams Realty company, I have transferred my license to Platinum Realty. I will truly miss all my friends at Keller Williams Realty, but I am excited about this new phase of my career. Nothing is changing for my clients - same great care and service - I'm just with a different company, now. So a lot going on this week for me getting things switched over, and three out-of-town buyers coming in mid/late week. My new email address is tim@timtanzhomes.com. My cell is 314-974-4886.       I have been representing home buyers and home sellers in the St Louis Metropolitan Area since 1997.
