About Me About Me

"There are no traffic jams along the extra mile." Roger Staubach

Tim Boyd

Specializing in unique properties: Antiques, Waterfront, Historic and Mixed Use Background.  A licensed realtor since 2010, Tim was pleased to join Sotheby's in Essex and Old Lyme in 2013, shortly after moving to Old Lyme from the Essex area. For 27 years, Tim was a former President and CEO of several companies in the home furnishings industry representing such elite firms as Sub-Zero, Viking Range, Villeroy and Boch and Sony. Tim also developed and sold commercial and residential real estate prior to becoming a professional realtor. The legendary sophistication of the Sotheby's brand offers our clients truly unique and exclusive features in an industry where the copycat approach is all too common. Tim's primary objective is learning what customers want most; knowing what our company does best and focusing on where those two meet.

Experience and Support

Having spent numerous years in the high end kitchen and bath industry, Tim's understanding of the home provides both buyers and sellers with unusual perspective and expertise in evaluating and improving their property's values. Tim continues to work with a team of qualified installation and mechanical contractors to provide cost effective means to maximize value.

My Commitment to You: "The Extra Mile" Since the real estate implosion in 2008 and the new banking regulations which followed, the path to the "finish line" for both buyers and sellers has grown complex. New challenges are everywhere; underwriting, inspections, regulatory commissions, new insurance requirements. A qualified realtor can and must help his client navigate this maze and stay the course to the end.

This is my promise to you; "I'll go the extra mile." People will do business with, and refer business to, those people they know, like and trust.

Testimonials (7)

Tim Boyd has taken care of a few properties for my family…this latest, after my mother’s passing. I could never have asked for a better realtor looking out for my best interest, since this estate ends with me. He is the voice of calm and reason and always took care in reaching the best outcome for the situation. Tim is a treasure. Ann Fieldman
Tim is everything you want in a realtor. He is the consummate professional, thorough to a fault, and willing to go the extra mile at every turn. I had a complex property- a quirky old house with some "history". Tim faced every challenge with a solution oriented approach. He kept calm and carried on until we got to the finish line. He was always easy to work with even when the circumstances were not. I give great thanks to Tim and 5+ stars. Eleo Hensleigh, Seller
Tim is literally the best in the business. I've met and worked with many realtors in my day...in NY, NJ, CT and CA. None more knowlegeble, dedicated, patient, and caring than Tim. We must have seen 100 houses over the course of a year...the Pandemic market was crazy...through it all he was steadfast in his committment to me and a great guide. Tim has renovated many homes and he really knows what to look out for, whenever he always made sure we investigated the mechanicals, windows, etc. He always spotted the pros and cons so we could make educated decisions. The team he suggested (closing lawyer, inspection teams, mortgage broker) were all fantastic and we finally found my house! A year later Tim bought a place around the corner and now we are neighbors! Diane Patrone
Tim Boyd was FABULOUS! It took nearly two years to build and close on this house with a developer who was extremely difficult. But Tim stuck with us throughout the entire arduous process! Thank you Tim! Anne and Scott Kraft Ann & Scott Kraft
My husband Tim is an agent with WPSIR, so I'm a little prejudiced. We didn't get the house our first time around, but Tim put in a back up offer and we ended up with the house and very pleased. Anastasia & Tim Boyd
Tim was great, as we had expected. He worked incredibly hard to sort out all sorts of difficulties along the way. Always had sensible advice, and never tried to manipulate us into doing something not to our advantage. Very generous with his time to help us with things that were not really his responsibility August Oemler Jr
Very responsive and diligent work. Would highly recommend . Joel & Ngoc-Lan Gargano
