Clients are saying:
"Nick was an absolute pleasure to work with for our home purchase. My husband and I are demanding clients since we are first time homeowners. We changed our minds multiple times over the course of 6 months on the type of place we wanted and we also had a complicated negotiation process with the seller. Nick was extremely patient with our many questions and held our hands throughout the process. We are extremely happy with the home we ended up getting and Nick played a big role in that."
"We were extremely pleased with Nick Patinkin as our real estate agent. He knew the local market well and provided sound advice as to the details of listing the house, allowing it to sell quickly and well. He was always available for questions and responded immediately. We highly recommend him to anyone for a real estate transaction, and would work with him again should the opportunity arise in the future."
"Nick was the realtor who sold our mother's home. He was extremely easy to work with. He was responsible, responsive and always professional and pleasant. He helped us negotiate the various deals and provided sound advice. He always responded to either e mail or cell phone. The home sold within weeks of listing. We were very pleased. Recommend without hesitation."
"Nick is the best! He helped us both buy and sell. He was helpful, low key, available and persistent in helping us as we figured out where and what to buy. Nick went above and beyond the call of duty and even made sure one of his colleagues was available when we needed to look at a place and he was out of town. He made the closing process on both properties as easy as possible . Could not recommend him more highly."
"Nick was an absolute pleasure for my wife and I to work with. His knowledge of the area was great. He updated us regularly on potential properties and was always available for us every step of the way. Purchasing a home can be a stressful experience and Nick was able to eliminate all of our problems and effectively guided us through the whole process from selection of our home to closing."
