Our family owned our Blue Lake Springs home for over 20 years and we enjoyed every day we spent there. Tim Meutterties' father originally sold the home to us and when we decided to sell, it was only natural to go to Tim. Tim knows the area well and he has always been able to guide us toward "the right person for the job" whenever we needed repairs, or advise. When we did sell, he guided us with skill throughout the process, answering our questions and concerns along the way. We would recommend Tim if you are thinking of buying, or selling.

TIm and Lisa went above and beyond to help us sell our cabin. Since we do not live in the area, I called them after my final cleanup to pick up our cable boxes that I forgot and to check to make sure all was secure and they graciously took care of everything. Whenever there was an issue, or a question, they responded quickly even on their days off. I am so glad we hired this team of professionals to represent us. Thank you again Tim and Lisa. We will be calling you for advice on rentals in the coming months since I already miss Arnold.

Tim and the staff at Realty World were great at getting my home advertised and sold in the time frame and at a price that I needed to move to another home. They communicated with me regularly about the activity and progress towards an offer. They were helpful, professional and involved through the whole process.

If you want the best realtor to work hard for you, then Tim (and Lisa) Muetterties is the only choice. Professional all the way, from beginning to end. I don't believe you'll find a better choice for any of your real estate needs. Very thorough, and I am so happy to have had the best representation possible for selling my cabin. Thank you, Tim and Lisa.

Tim Muetterties has been our Realtor since we bought our home in Arnold 27 years ago. Tim, his wife Lisa and staff have provided excellent service over the years. We live in the Bay Area and Tim has kept a key to the house and watched over the place when we weren’t there. When we’ve had minor emergencies, he has been happy to run by and check things out. When we have needed work done, he has recommended craftspeople that did great work, at a reasonable rate.

Recently, we came to the sad conclusion that it was time to sell the “cabin” that we spent so many wonderful years enjoying. Tim did a market analisys, and we settled on what we considered a fair listing price. The Muetterties said “not to worry” as they would handle, staging the house, getting the necessary reports and working with any of the contractors that we needed. When we put the house on the market, we received a basically full price offer ($1,000 under asking) within 24 hours and escrow closed in 45 days. During that period Tim dealt with the crafts people who made the buyer’s requested repairs. Thanks to Tim and Lisa, this was a stress free transaction and we are grateful for their help and professionalism. We highly recommend Tim and Lisa Muetterties and Realty World.

We couldn't have asked for a better buyer's representative than Tim Muetterties. He handled our whole purchase from start to finish. We appreciated how he kept us informed as we moved from making our offer on the home, through communication to our loan officer, the title company, the sellers and then the close of excrow.
Tim was raised in the Arnold area where we purchased our home. He is very active in civic responsibilities there, too. This experience makes him a very well-informed person when talking about and advising on the issues and charms of the area and Calaveras County as a whole. He has written a booklet on the purchase process from start to finish which is geared to the Arnold market. We referred to this little booklet repeatedly during our escrow period. He has also given us excellent advice regarding local home repair and enhancement companies.
We are very happy that we chose Tim. Once we move into our new home, we hope to keep in touch with him as our first friend in Arnold.

As a 71 year old first time home buyer, Tim and Lisa took the pressure and stress out of the process. Their dedication, caring and friendliness knew no bonds.
I will always be appreciative and highly recommend their services.

Tim and Lisa were the dynamic duo! They handled both ends of the sale with phenomenal expertise and expediency. From listing to accepted offer was a mere 14 days. Even the closing of Escrow was accelerated by two weeks! Tim and Lisa connected the perfect buyers with the perfect sellers and the entire process was flawless. How business is done!

Our friends had purchased a home in Dorrington from Realtors Tim and Lisa Muetterties. We use to come visit them when we lived in Hawaii and grew to love the area. We moved back to the bay area in June 2009. We wanted to purchase a property in the same area and our friends recommended Tim and Lisa and were very impressed with their professionalism and just good people to be around. They call you back when they say they will. They work great together so if one was busy the other could help. We purchased a property in Arnold September 2009. We just closed escrow April 2019. Tim and Lisa were able to get us top dollar compared to similar properties in the area in many years. We can't imagine that there's better real estate agents in the area. We wish them the best.

Tim helped us buy a lot in Blue Lake Springs In 1985 and referred us to local contractors to build our cabin in 1986. He also helped us sell it this year after 33 years of wonderful times and memories we had using it. Along the way he helped us when we needed something done but couldn’t get there. We recommend his services highly!

I Cant tell you how happy my wife and I were with the help and service we received from Tim. Tim made sure he researched the properties before showing them to us and was able to answer all of the question we had. Tim has the Knowledge skills and abilities to help you through stressful parts of buying your new property.
I would recommend him anyone looking to buy a home or vacation property.

Recently bought a vacation home in Arnold Ca. Used Tim and Lisa Muetterties at Realty World as our Realtors. Can’t say enough good things about them, their knowledge of the area and their service. They were definitely not out to just make the sale and close the deal. Not being from the area they were great at making sure we knew the pros and cons of each property and it’s location. Tim and Lisa made us feel like we were family and truly wanted us to be happy with the property we chose. We would highly recommend them.

I can not say enough good things about Tim! I’m a single mom with two young kids and I really thought buying my first home would be much more stressful, if not impossible, but Tim guided me through the process with ease and was always there to assure me and calm my nerves. The entire process was amazing, start to finish, and now I am living in my dream home, all thanks to Tim!

Tim and Lisa did an outstanding job helping us sign our family cabin. We started the process 3 years ago, but a fire in the area destroyed many homes in the area. Lisa helped us to complete necessary repairs and updates so that we could rent it to a family that was displaced. When the cabin was vacated, Tim was invaluable in helping us to navigate the escrow process. Ours was a prolonged transaction as we had to complete a Succession Petition to take our deceased mother's name off title. Tim and Lisa were always available to answer any questions and address any concerns we had. They were professional, knowledgable, responsive, calm, and patient. I highly recommend Tim and Lisa if you are looking to buy or sell in the area!

Tim and Lisa are very friendly – they went over my contract intensively. Every time I called, emailed, or texted them – they responded to me quickly. And they updated me once, or multiple times a week on the situation, not to mention they would go out of their way to solve any issue that arose during the process. Which meant the sale of my house went smoothly, because of Tim and Lisa. So, I’ll be recommending them to my friends, and family.

We contacted Tim based on a friends recommendation. We were not disappointed. Tim and Lisa were amazing.

Tim and Lisa are both very knowledgeable about the market area as they grew up in Arnold. They showed us home after home and pointed out specific pros and cons that can only come from many years of experience in the area. They were honest and trustworthy which made us feel extremely comfortable.

Tim is a great communicator and allowed us to take all the time we needed to find the right house; we never felt any pressure. He was always very patient and available to show us homes at any time. When the time came, Tim and Lisa both showed strong negotiation skills. Buying a home can be challenging but Tim and Lisa's guidance made it as painless as possible. If we ever need to move again, I would not hesitate to work with Tim and Lisa again or give them anything but the highest recommendation.

Tim and Lisa did a great job listing and selling our house. Besides being very personable, knowledgeable, hardworking, and available for you 24/7, they are also very well connected within the community and continually give back to the community they live in. When I needed contractors to do some work on the house, they recommended contractors in the area that were reputable and got the job done in a timely manner and at a reasonable cost. During the winter months, Tim kept the drive clear of snow for us too! Our house has sold, but our friendship is just beginning! Thanks Tim & Lisa!

Thank you Tim and Lisa so much for your expertise! I came in with a house in mind, it was a total fixer upper. I was So anxious to get into a place i was overlooking some major flaws. Tim and Lisa took sat down with me, asked me everything that i wanted In a house. It wasn’t long that i was able to see that that house wasn’t for me. They assured me that with a little patience the right one would come up. Boy was that hard to wait. It wasn’t three weeks and i got A call from Lisa. She said i have A house that just popped up today that i think Will suit you. It was cheaper!! Bigger and move in ready! Not only that but it had everything i could Ever want already. I think Most realtors would have closed the deal on the first house! They had my interest in mind first and foremost and i couldnt be happier with my purchase! They kept me completely informed all the way through the escrow. Answered every question i had Along the way, and i had A lot of them haha. Again i couldn’t be happier with their service and expertise. I wouldnt Recommend anyone else! Thank you!

Thank you Tim for the alacrity you serve your clients. When I was worried, you calmed me. When there was confusion, you clarified it.
suggestions for hiking, you where happy to oblige.
But beyond this, your knowledge to the area and with the market was most keen. It shows your love for the land, the history and the people.
May we cross paths again,

Seller and Buyer
Tim Muetterties helped us both buy and sell our cabin in Big Trees. Having lived in the area for most of his life Tim is very familiar with all aspects of the area. he was also a tremendous resource in finding people to work with on things like repairs to our septic system to finding someone to plow out our driveway in the winter. We always received great and honest advise on the local real estate market. We felt he always placed our interests ahead of his own in business matters. He is a real professional. Thanks for all Tim!

Tim and Lisa helped us sell our business thanks to their knowledge and expertise everything went very smoothly and stress free. We highly recommend them and are now using them to sell our home. They are always available and very friendly and they make complicated things easy to understand. Cant say enough good things about both of them.
