Her start-to-finish model aims to address the needs of individual clients as they navigate each step of the sale process and years to follow.

"Nicole was really "on the ball"! When we first met her, we were considering a loft type condo–and while she showed us several–it became clear that a loft would not be big enough. So, with Nicole's help we reset our sights on a large single family home. She was very helpful in setting up viewings and taking us around and dealing with the sellers' agents. When we finally settled on a home, she and her associates helped walk us through the process of negotiating, and buying the new house. The nice thing about Nicole and her associates is their friendly professionalism. The buying process was easy and relaxed with no drama. Her advice was always timely and useful and her knowledge of the area really helped!"
"Having worked alongside Nicole for five years and seeing how passionate she is about her job, I knew there was no one else I could trust to guide me through the process of being a first-time home buyer. Having an honest agent who doesn't rush you is so important. If I asked her what she thought of a certain place, what faults she foresaw, etc, I could trust her to be honest with me. I had a tight, 2-month window to find a place and Nicole was on the ball from the beginning, always on top of scheduling tours and touching base with me when my mind was elsewhere. Whether it involved getting me in touch with her fantastic attorney, lender, and insurance guy, or adding those homey finishing touches, she had it covered. If you're looking for an agent who will go above and beyond for you, Nicole is your person. I can't recommend her enough."
"Nicole has represented us on 3 transactions now. First was the sale of our condo three years ago. Most recently she helped us with the sale of our home and purchase of a new one. These parallel processes are challenging and nuanced, but Nicole is so knowledgeable about the process and guided us through it all with ease and confidence.
On the sale of our home, her analysis of how to price our home was spot on -- we had multiple offers on the first day of listing. We were under contract for sale for the list price the next day. It was amazing! She is a full service broker -- we are especially grateful for her vast network of vendors. We used quite a few of them even after sourcing others on our own. The coordination among the vendors was so tremendously helpful during this emotional and long process of selling a home. Her vendors were fair and honest -- this is such a big factor especially when you are incurring additional costs as a homeowner to sell your property.
On the purchase of our new home, she was equally thoughtful and negotiated on our behalf masterfully. We ran into an issue at final walkthrough and she was able to immediately (and thoughtfully) recommend solutions; and with the counsel of our attorney we developed a solution that allowed us to have peace of mind to move forward with the purchase.
We have been beyond pleased with her service. I could not recommend her enough."
