A trustworthy agent possesses strong morals and values. If you asked my closest friends and family what a few of my strongest qualities are, they would say honesty, compassion, and intelligence, and my clients would agree. An honest agent gives you the answer you need to hear, even if it's not necessarily the answer you want to hear. A compassionate agent understands that buying a home is a major life decision that goes beyond crunching numbers, it's a personalized process that can evoke many emotions. An intelligent agent brings forth knowledge from dedicated research to fully inform their client, all with the client's best interest in mind.

Clients are saying:
"Nikki is the best broker I've worked with hands down. She's consistently able to show me places that meet my criteria. I've now used her three times and have recommended her to many other friends."
"Nikki has gone above and beyond in all expectations! From day 1 it's apparent real estate is her passion. Not only was she receptive to all my of my criteria for what I was seeking, but she was patient with me when what I wanted was not surfacing on the market. During the closing process she was giving me the lay of the land on how everything would work. As a first time home buyer, this was very helpful. Even after closing on the property she continued to support me in various ways by offering to help with rehab plans, offering ideas, even manage the contractors at times when I could not make it. She is a valuable asset that deserves a spot on your team when you acquire your next property. This became apparent how wide spread and in depth her knowledge was when another realtor took over for a showing. Nothing against them, but Nikki blew them out of the water!"
"So grateful that Nikki was the buyer's agent for my recent home purchase. After some sour experiences with jaded real estate pros, I was relieved to find someone who was ambitious, hardworking and knowledgeable about the local market. Nikki was always available/accessible and went above and beyond her duties to make this transaction happen. Although I hope to call this new house my home for years to come, I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again."
"Working with Nikki was incredible! She’s extremely polite, understanding, and dedicated in finding you the best home. There were times when I was indecisive about what I wanted in a place, she helped me pick what I needed most in home! In addition, Nikki is very knowledge about the housing market and she's extremely responsive. She provided me with information I needed about the neighborhood as well (local restaurants, nightlife, etc). She was also very level-headed in stressful situations. For instance, when I was having issues with an attorney, she was right there with a list of credible attorneys at an affordable cost. I highly recommend Nikki and I have and will recommend her to friends and family."
"Nikki was incredibly helpful in our search. We sent her a long wish list and every home she showed us ticked all the boxes. She went above and beyond for us and it was such a relief to have her help us sort through the huge amount available properties and paperwork. I would recommend working with her to anyone and everyone."
