Clients are saying:
"My family of four recently moved to the Chicago area from California. Nichole took all of us, including two kids, on a tour of the Western suburbs, and she was amazing: so kind, knowledgable, and patient with our endless questions -- even helping to keep the kids happy. During our time with Nichole, we got great insights about specific neighborhoods and the overall market. We walked away feeling like our time with Nichole was time very well spent -- we were much more informed about buying in the area. If you're looking for someone to show you around the western burbs/Chicagoland, don't hesitate to reach out to Nichole. She'll save you time, and she's just a lovely, genuine human being who you can be your real self around."
"Nichole was a blessing to work with. Her knowledge of the local area and current trends made the house search diverse and exciting. Once we got down to choosing a house, Nichole stuck with us from start to finish with personable service. I have not seen her attention to detail in any other agent. We also previously sold a home with Nichole through @ properties and I can tell you they are excellent from both buying and selling! I highly recommend Nichole and @ properties for any real estate services coming your way. Thank you for working with us to find our home!"
"I have nothing but great things to say about Nichole; if I had to choose one word to describe her, it would be conscientious. She is organized, prepared, professional, knowledgeable, thoughtful and, above all, listens to her clients and their needs. My husband and I searched for quite some time with Nichole to find a house; at no time did we ever feel pressured and every outing was a learning experience for us. Her knowledge of the area in which we were looking was invaluable as we looked to make the move to the suburbs from the city. Two things that I think sets Nichole apart from other agents is her honest feedback and ability to manage expectations (and her willingness to tell us when our expectations were unreasonable). She is now representing us as our selling agent and we are thrilled with the sales plan she has put together and her preparation."
"It was amazing to work with Nichole. We were referred to Nichole based on her knowledge of the suburbs, as we were moving from Chicago.
We searched several different suburbs and many homes. She was great at showing us each home, pointing out things we told her we would like in our next home, but also reminding us which houses did not have the "must have" items we had our hearts set on.
She also drove us through the different suburbs (which were unfamiliar to us) and pointed out different attractions. This showed us she did her due diligence and prepared for each visit we had with her.
She kept in constant contact with us, responded to any questions we had, even providing guidance on matters we were unsure about."
"Nichole is fantastic. She helped us navigate finding a community and home. She listened to what we wanted and was able to offer suggestions. She knows the area well and was willing to help us see other communities just so we could explore our options. We moved from overseas and Nichole was very accommodating to our unusual circumstances, schedule and timing. We will definitely work with Nichole again as we move forward."
