About Me

Tim Kayes is one of Rochester’s finest Real Estate Professionals, serving Monroe and surrounding counties since 1986.

A graduate of Ithaca College with a Bachelor of Science in Finance and a concentration in Marketing, he moved to Penfield in 1986.

Tim has helped hundreds of families relocate in and around Monroe County. He started with a small family-owned real estate office, that has since dissolved back in the mid-90's. He joined RE/MAX Realty Group in 1997 to be part of the best real estate firm in Rochester.

Tim has 3 children, all of whom he voluntarily coached at both travel soccer and basketball when they were younger. Now his sons are off to college and his daughter is nearing high school! Tim loves to participate in sports, not only as a fan, but as an active participant. He and his wife are members of the Eastside YMCA and both love their Friday summer nights at Penfield Country Club. He is also extremely familiar with most of the 20 or 30 private golf clubs, including the additional 50+ public courses.

His experience in negotiating contracts will benefit you, whether you are buying or selling a home. Tim's goal is to provide his clients with the best service possible when moving. Tim's clients and customers always come first!

Tim was the agent who assisted my husband and I with the purchase of our first home. He is trustworthy, accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly. We have recommended him to many of our friends.         Todd & Aileen


Tim is an honest individual who adds true value to the Real Estate transaction. Tim's in-depth knowledge of the local communities made our home search and relocation highly successful. He is a true professional who I recommend with great confidence.         Michael & Joyce


Tim's knowledge of the Rochester area was superb, as was his ability to help us in negotiating a price, which proved to be better than we expected. His follow-through was excellent, and the information he provided was accurate. The most gratifying aspect of working with Tim however, was his genuine interest in OUR needs, rather than his or his agency's. We would not hesitate to work with Tim again.         Kathleen & Michael


Tim was our real estate agent for our relocation from Rochester to California. We were especially pleased with Tim's efforts to find us the right buyers, especially in a slower market. Our house sold quickly and at a higher price than we expected. We were lucky to work with Tim.         Ted & Kathy
