“What can i say about someone who puts their whole heart and soul into what they do in an effort to help others through their personal recovery journey… Tim has a hands on approach that truly exemplifies his desire to mentor and guide newcomers towards a better life. I have had several clients become residents at Healing Properties, and the feedback about their experience there has always been positive! Tim has created a “home-like” environment and treats his residents as family. Honest, caring and available, I can highly recommend the services Tim and his team provide!”Karen P. Rainer, BRI-I Owner, The Circle of Care Consultants, Inc.
“Tim has all the hallmarks of a guy you’d want to do business with, or for that matter to call a friend: high integrity, indomitable work ethic, and a genuine desire to create opportunities for others. His follow through and attention to detail is intense, but doesn’t get in the way of his ability to laugh at himself and find the humor in tough situations, as it often does for others who are exceptionally driven. I think that has to do with his own life history and some hard won lessons & humility – in life and in business – a wealth of experience which he clearly draws on and will generously share if asked.”Josh Simpson Search Marketing Director, Webcast1
“My first dealings with Tim / Healing Properties was in 2004 when a dear friend of mine was admitted to the halfway house, for extended care after completing a substance abuse program in another State. The structured environment provided my friend with the consistency needed for him at this delicate time in his life. He went on to be a leader in the community and contributes to the community in a multitude of ways. Further on, Tim contracted me for my personal business. He was always pleasant to work with, on time with payments, and reasonable to work with. It was a pleasure doing business. Since then, Tim has become what I consider a good friend and it is great to know that I can call him whenever I am experiencing problems in my own life. It is evident that he has helped save the lives of 1000s of people, just from my conversations with him. It is my pleasure to recommend Tim and Healing Properties as a distinguished, clean, safe, and ethical halfway house in the Delray Beach, Palm Beach County Area.”Patrick Coombe Elite Strategies
“I have observed Tim since start up of Healing Properties many years ago.he has continued through these years to sustain a solid reputation in the transitional housing industry for providing quality housing at an affordable price..”Harold Jonas President, Intervention Strategies, Inc
“As a provider of drug testing supplies to the Rehabilitation Community for over 10 years, I have had the fortunate experience of working with Tim. His reputation within the tight knit rehabilitiation community is one of excellence and high standards. It is apparent Tim is not in this business just to make a buck, but rather to help people who want to better their lives through the help of a formiddable recovery program. Tim has always gone the extra mile in the way he monitors and tests the residents of his sober community. Where many of my clients only test for a minimal amount of drugs, Tim has always demanded that his residents be tested for everything, even though that raises his cost and diminishes his profit. His reputation among his peers is second to none. And within this tight-knit, and competitive market, peer acceptance is not the norm. Usually one rehabilitation community will not lay praise upon another; however, Healing Properties has always had the respect from Treatment Centers, and other Halfway and Sober houses in the community. I would highly recommend that anyone who is trying to heal themselves from the perils of addiction talk to Tim Schnellenberger and look at the wonderful service he provides his community.”Jared Robinson Owner, Navicus, Inc
“Having known Mr. Schnellenberger for over a decade, I can say that his compassion and empathic communication in service towards others is hard to surpass. Helping to bolster and encourage all to do and be the best is part of his “gift”. I say to anyone looking for such characteristics in a guide, they would be hard pressed to find another with such devotion. I encourage anyone looking for change, take the time to listen to this man.”Tom Hahn Director, TomHahn Transitions
“I am delighted to recommend Timothy Schnellenberger. He would be an excellent addition to any company and would be an asset to any firm looking to hire exceptional people with the goal of growing their business.”Lee Chimerakis Sr. Vice President, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney
“Timothy is the most honest, authentic and devoted person I have ever met. He walks the talk and you always know where you stand. His follow through, professionalism and solution finding skills are off the charts. His passion, creativity, talent, determination and ambition inspire me daily. I am truly blessed to have worked with him and to call him my friend.”Anyssa Jordan Actor/ Model, Rage Models and Talent
“Tim was very innovative in his marketing. He displayed properties on the Internet long before this was an accepted real-estate technique. He was great to work with and continues to be a friend.”Lyn Shanley
“I remember Timmy from my days with the ‘U’ under his fathers coaching. Timmy was a handfull like all of us at that age. It is with great pleasure to hear and see what GOD has done in his life. Timmy has truly been blessed. He is an example for all of us that our faith in GOD will pull us through. I believe in Timmy and wish him continued success!”Julio Cesar Cortes Student, University of Miami – School of Business
“As the editor of It’s all in the Journey recovery magazine, as well as the owner of Joy’s House; a sober home for women, I meet and deal with a lot of therapists and counselors, but especially parents and loved ones of a addict or alcoholic who is new in recovery. Usually they are worried, scared and at a loss as to where to send their family member out of the 100’s of transitional living homes after they’ve finished primary treatment. I recommend Tim and Healing Properties without hesitation. Tim not only runs a strong, supportive recovery program – he lives it. I deal with a lot of treatment related busines owners and employees – and it is amazing how many talk the talk in public, but when you are with them one on one they knock their competition, complain about clients that aren’t doing the right thing and more. Tim has never said anything negative about anyone – only things like, “That isn’t working with this person, maybe we should try this to help them.” He has always been only positive and looking for ways to help someone achieve long term sobriety. Tim Schnellenberger talks the talk. But more importantly, he walks the walk – and more of us would do well to follow his example. I would recommend Tim to anyone.”Charlie G. Owner, Joy’s House
“Timothy Schnellenberger’s Healing Properties offer an environment that is so necessary for those who are reentering a life of sobriety. Timothy and his staff have created surroundings that are nurturing and encouraging. Expectations of residents are realistic as they transition to positive patterns of living and working. Timothy is a visionary who has built Healing Properties with passion and a commitment to excellence.”Suzy Wilkoff President and Owner, Tasks Unlimited, Productivity and Time Management Consulting
“I have the opportunity to work with many professionals in the treatment industry, but not often is it so that an individual is viewed upon so highly among those around them. Tim is the type of person that will always tell it like it is and remain steadfast to his integrity. As in every business and every industry, there are those few who set themselves apart not because they strive to, but because that’s all they know, and Tim is most certainly a member of the small circle!”Ron Prosky Marketing Coordinator | Web Resource Management, Sober Nexus
