About Dan Timm

High-quality and high-touch service!

I'm proud of my firm. We work hard, and we work like a family - which I consider a rarity in this business. CENTURY 21 Kreuser and Seiler, Ltd. has been helping people buy and sell homes in the northern suburbs of Chicago since 1974. We are one of the top-producing firms in Lake County, and Nationally within the Century 21 system. Most of my business comes from referrals of past clients. High quality customer care and a "clients first" ethic are the reasons for our success.

Our Corporate Relocation Department, the only one of its kind in Chicago's northern suburbs, consists of five full-time salaried professionals that help corporations relocate employees to and from the Chicago area, and to make those moves as trouble-free as possible.

If you are considering a transfer, we can help you get started with the "preliminaries"of selling your home and provide a wealth of information on the destination you're considering.  Regarding the sale of your current home, we can give you a formal Broker's Market Analysis (BMA) for your relocation company or employer, suggest improvements to enhance your home's value, and give you an idea of the current local market. Our service is second to none!

For Seller's,  Better Marketing = Better Results!

In today's marketplace, the Internet is the tool for exposing your home to the largest audience in the shortest amount of time. However, your home has to look its best! I assist sellers in carefully staging their homes for marketing and then combine high-quality virtual tours with the broadest distribution possible to leverage good looks with high visibility. Our goal? The shortest marketing time and the highest price.

  • Superior HDR photography and advanced photo editing to show your property in flattering detail. Use of "Visual Tour" virtual tours - the most effective available.
  • Premium placement and enhanced content at my website, and literally hundreds of others including:,, MSN,, Chicagotribune, Zillow, homescape, google, yahoo, trullia, moving, homestore, juno, netzero,  wsj,  and homeseekers.
  • Top quality sign box flyers and in-home brochures.
  • Thorough analysis and market updates.
  • The most straight-forward listing contract in the industry.

    • The Destination Imagination program encourages teams of learners to have fun, take risks, focus, and frame challenges while incorporating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), the arts, and service learning. Our participants learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem solving process. Teams may showcase their solutions at a tournament.
