"Nicole is extremely knowledgeable about the Logan Square market and energetic in carrying out the duties of selling properties in the area. She is a great communicator and thorough in her follow up of the many details associated with a real estate transaction. Her understanding of the market and related property pricing, allowed us to have an accepted offer the first day our property was listed! We could not be more satisfied that we partnered with Nicole for the sale of our property and we were delighted with the results. We would wholeheartedly recommend her for your realtor needs."



"she is great. I have bought 4 properties from her now and will continue to buy more. She knows what I want and really understands me and my needs. NICOLE IS AMAZING!"

"I’m an investor and Nicole works with me when I buy and rent my properties .
She’s simply super proffesional
Super knowledgeable
And super honest .
There’s a good reason why I work with her for over 3 years now ."



"Nicole was EXCELLENT!! I started out working with multiple agents and once Nicole and I had our first tour of homes she set the bar high and I wound up working exclusively with her the rest of my home search. I'm active duty Military with odd working hours in Great Lakes, Il and Nicole was able to arrange my tours around my schedule. I definitely recommend Nicole for anyone searching for a home. A great experience."



"We could not have asked for a friendlier, more responsive, and more professional realtor. Nicole made the process of buying a home as seemless as it could possibly be. She answered all our questions promptly and in detail. If for some reason she didn't know the answer, she took the initiative to find it for us. During the inspection process she ment with contractors on our behalf when we couldn't. She also uses technology to her and her clients benefit, making signing all the paper work that much simplier. We closed on our house on Xmas eve and she was there with us for moral support and celebration. I highly reccomend her."



"friendly, courteous, informative"



"Nicole is a great professional and always available to answer any question. Looking forward to working with Nicole on our next purchase."



"Nicole was wonderful to work with! She listens, gives honest feedback and was always accessible. Nicole knows the Chicagoland market well and always served as my advocate when negotiating on my behalf."



"Nicole is the best agent I ever worked with! She is professional, honest and put the best interest of her clients as the top priority. I purchased my investment property through Nicole and would do it again."



"I’ve been working with Nicole for a few years .
Super professional and honest"



"Nicole went above and beyond for us. She represented us on the sale of our Condo. She was very thoughtful and informed when advising us how to price and negotiate with buyers. We didn’t occupy the condo and Nicole helped so much with meeting vendors and utility companies on our behalf to let them in the unit because we’re not neatby.

She responded to every text/email in a very timely manner. She was always looking out for our best interest.

I can’t recommend her enough."



"Nicole is an endearing person and a smart, efficient professional. Her commitment to our project, and unending enthusiasm helped us make our choice, and we are very happy with it.

She and her team went above and beyond her call of duty to make the process of buying our condo a wonderful experience. Our best to her! And YES, we will recommend Nicole Duran to anyone who asks us about Chicago real estate!! We hope we see her make great progress in her career!"



"Nicole worked very hard at finding me the right property. She persisted in the search and was able to tailor the search to find me the right condo. She worked hard at the negotiations and made sure everything went smoothly. I would recommend her as an agent

Nicole was extremely organized and efficient, and made the difficult job of condo hunting much easier. I was impressed by her organizational skills; when we looked at properties together, she always had a game plan laid out and the appointments all set up. She was attentive to my needs. A real "go getter" attitude is what really impressed me"



"Nicole was very Knowledgeable of the area we were looking in and was always able to answer our questions. She went over and beyond to make us comfortable. For example we were out on a tour for a few hours and she had mini waters and Kind bars to offer us while she drove us around in her nice clean car. We were extremely pleased with the entire process. We always felt she got us money back every chance she could and thoroughly explained step by step what we had to do to get into our dream home. She even knew reputable vendors for our cleaning & handy man needs. She could not have made this a better experience. We will definitely be using her as our future Realtor."



"Nicole was our agent when we bought an apartment in the Lincoln Park area. We live abroad, so our process required a lot of flexibility and understanding of our peculiar circumstances. Nicole was simply wonderful accommodating the process to our needs. She understood our needs and preferences and kept showing apartments to our daughter (who resides in Chicago) until we found the RIGHT ONE. Nicole was also very helpful recommending other professionals we needed for the purchase process and some repairs/changes we wanted to do to the apartment (lawyer, inspector, mortgage agents, floors contractor, cleaning service, etc). She even helped us with the closing and contractors work, since we were not in Chicago at the time. In summary, Nicole was very professional, responsive, truth worthy, efficient, flexible, and a very nice person to deal with. We are very thankful to her and pleased with our new property."



"I had the pleasure of working with Nicole over the past few months to find a multi-family property in the West Town/Logan Square area. From day one, Nicole was incredibly responsive, whether via email, phone, or text. When I requested a showing during her vacation, (unbeknownst to me,) she offered to change her flight to accommodate my millennial quest for instant gratification.

After getting a few details about my criteria, Nicole started sending relevant listings, and she showed me several places on our first outing. At our first property, she had a fancy little book with photos, listing sheets, and several possible financing scenarios for each property prepared. There's just something so terribly romantic and official about a bound book - I really loved having all the information I needed to compare properties quickly and easily. Although I've purchased several properties in the past, I've never had an agent who was so thorough and prepared. As we worked our way down the list, she had a keen eye for finding potential areas of value or concern. And she was as polite as could be when one owner tried convincing us there "was only a little standing water" in the basement, as she gingerly slogged through four inches of stale water in wedges.

After working with Nicole, I am impressed with her professionalism, responsiveness, and knowledge of the neighborhoods I was interested in. Without reservation, I would highly recommend Nicole. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!"



"Nicole is very well versed in Chicago real estate. I have bought both a condo (Lakeview) and a single family home (Avondale) with her. She is always willing to make herself available for property visits."



"Nicole helped me get the process moved along for both the financing as well as the legal overview for the property that I purchased in Ukrainian village. She knew the area well enough to predict the rents that could be obtained at a later date. I think having a relationship with the seller's agent (Krain) helped with the negotiation process and contract. I was out of the country for three weeks while the inspection and the contract were being done. Nicole helped to coordinate all the activities associated for the inspection, legal review and payment. The seller's agent was a smaller company and Nicole arrange for @properties to recieve the overseas wire transfer and pass that on to the seller's agent - Krain. I highly recommend her."



"Nicole quickly identified the types of properties I was interested in from the sample I sent her. The next Saturday she took me to half a dozen places that fit my criteria and one of them was perfect; I'll be moving in this June.

During the process Nicole demonstrated great knowledge of the various neighborhoods we visited, and of the real estate market as a whole. My impression was that Nicole has more experience, education, and passion in her field than most of her peers. I will recommend her to friends."



"Nicole helped with the purchase of condos for our kids. She met with them, identified appropriate listings and helped them narrow the field. My wife and I then came to town, reviewed the top picks and closed the deal. She is patient, understanding and very knowledgable. I highly recommend her!"



"Nicole is professional, reliable, and knowledgeable. She was understanding and empathetic. She was sincerely more interested in my best interest than just selling me a house/making money. Working with her was a privilege. And, I would recommend her to anyone who is searching for a home."



"My husband and I worked with Nicole on the purchase of our first home. We were unfamiliar with the process and Nicole graciously guided us through it all. Her down to earth and energetic personality made it a pleasure to work with her. We will definitely recommend her to our friends and family."



"Nicole not only helped us to find our current home, but also to find a fabulous condo to rent 18 months prior to our home purchase, as we made the transition from suburban to city living. She is a consummate professional and real people's person who I would highly recommend."



"Nicole was easy to work with. She followed through quickly and got back to us in a very responsive way.
I would definitely recommend Nicole for buying or selling a home or renting."



"I have used Nicole for several real estate deals. Not only has she found me everything I have wanted but without much wasted time. She really knows how to negotiate the right way and gives great pointers. I thought I was a good negotiator but wasn't doing that well until I went off of her pointers. I highly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell property and find the right deal to go through Nicole."



"Loved the whole experience. Nicole was amazing! So easy and painless. Thanks Nicole and @!"

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Nicole! I had gone through 3 realtors before finding Nicole, and found her by chance off another listing. She made the looking and buying process enjoyable, and knew exactly how to not burn me out through the process. Nicole really took the time to get to know me as a person and find condos based on wants and needs I had. She even found a few that I wouldn't have picked by listing alone, but by getting to know me she knew I'd love them! She was a straight shooter (in a nice way), and very honest which I appreciate. I have already recommended her, and will definitely be using her for any home buying or selling needs in the future."

She was always very quick to reply, had excellent referrals and navigated the choppy waters of real estate masterfully. Thanks!"
