Clients are saying:
"Nicole Hajdu is a gem. She put us into our starter home 4 years ago, and then helped sell that home and buy our forever home once we had two little ones join our family and we outgrew the space. My wife and I trust her and her team with our lives. Especially considering the many uncertainties in the world right now, I couldn't imagine having gone through that process of buying/selling a home with anybody else. Not only did she always have a solid game plan, but she constantly had a Plan B and C ready to go in case we hit any roadblocks. Even when things were the most stressful, it was easy to make the hard decisions knowing how much trust we had in her. She is a consummate professional and I sincerely hope you let her change your life as much as she has ours."
"2 DAYS! Nicole sold my condo in 2 DAYS! I wouldn't be living in my dream home today if it wasn't for Nicole Hajdu! My house selling experience started off very rocky and the future looked bleak, but the moment Nicole entered the picture, everything changed. She told me EXACTLY what I needed to be done and she could not have been any more right. Not only is Nicole an expert in the process, but she knows all the people you need to know in order to get the job done and done RIGHT. But most importantly, Nicole is understanding, kind, honest, easy to talk to, and a darn right blast to be around. I am so grateful to have met Nicole, and even more grateful for what she has done for me. I will be forever indebted to you for your kindness, Nicole. I cannot thank you enough!"
"Nicole was great. She was highly experience agent and very patient. As a first time buyer she was very informative about the buying process. She was very active asking the sellers agent, association the right questions. History of the building, special assessments, reserves. We made VA offer that was accepted and was able to get the building VA approved in 10 days. She also worked weekends to accommodate my schedule."
"Ann was always available to answer my questions and offer suggestions."
"Helping your elderly parents downsize and simplify their lives by selling their home of over forty years is no easy task. We could not have done it without the professional support, skill, and attention to detail that Nicole provided along every step of the way. Her superb management of a difficult and emotionally trying situation, was matched only by her skillful ability to market and sell our home. With her expertise we received multiple viable offers within a week of placing our home on the market, and had a pending contract shortly afterwards. I highly recommend Nicole Hajdu for any and all of your real estate needs. Her kind and caring approach makes her easy to work with and it makes the often difficult task of selling or buying a home a lot easier."
