As a child of a military family, Tim Gavin knows all too well what it’s like to move and relocate. Born in Boise, Idaho, Tim lived in Germany, South Florida and Arizona – all by age 8. Upon realizing that he wanted to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a professional athlete, Tim moved to Los Angeles at age 15 – on his own – driven by passion, tenacity and a legendary frontside heelflip.
Upon becoming a professional skateboarder at the ripe age of 17, Tim found himself to be an in-demand “star” at the center of a sport, at the height of its popularity. During his pop cultural “close-up,” Tim soaked it all in, learning valuable lessons about life, what he loved and of course, how to do business.
After his pro career ended, when most athletes move on to more mundane tasks, Tim was just getting started. First, in 1995, he tested out his shoe game starting his first business venture, DVS Shoe Company. Then, Tim pioneered two more iconic business ventures, Matix Clothing and Lakai Footwear, which quickly became two of the biggest brands in the action sports industry exceeding $120M in annual sales worldwide. After demonstrating a tireless work ethic and commitment to building his businesses into global brands, Tim’s hard work and dedication lead him to a world he’d been intrigued by his entire life:
After selling off the aforementioned brands, Tim quickly pursued his real estate dreams full time. By blending his instincts as an investor with his passion for architecture and design, it wasn’t long before Tim became established in the L.A. real estate market, closing million dollar deals on a regular basis. As a member of the Top Agent Network and the Agent Leadership Council at Keller Williams in Beverly Hills, Tim has quickly become a top-producing agent, working with celebrities, athletes and young entrepreneurs to achieve their goals. As a valued partner, Tim prides himself on working closely with his clients and has a personality that makes each one feel comfortable, confident and well taken care of during what will inevitably be one of the most important transactions of their lifetimes.
