Tim Zilles | Co-Owner and Project Coordinator 

Tim is from Stillwater, MN. He has an encompassing background in the construction industry. When coordinating projects for Novare, Tim has very high standards and has a difficult time “settling” for anything less than what he would do in his own home. Tim is on-site for each step of your remodel, making sure that our Trade Partners are on-time, clean, & doing the highest quality of work. Tim’s laid back personality, combined with his knack for details, is essential in any renovation. Trust and honesty are a key foundation to Novare’s function and transformational results. Tim’s best advice for a client: “Once you have chosen your contractor, allow them to do the job you hired them to do; have trust”.
