"We absolutely loved working with Nicole!
She sold our house within days and for more money than we asked. She is very professional, easy to work with, knowledgeable and hands on. She did superb work in staging our house, which definitely played a huge role in selling it so quickly.
She navigated us through the whole process flawlessly and answered any questions we had along the way.
We can’t say enough positive words about our experience working with her and will definitely recommend her to all of our friends and family."



"Nicole worked like a dream! She managed to work around so many tricky situations to sell our house. Her expertise and high-standard skills made our experience so easy. She makes sure that everyone understands each step and she maintains composure even with last minute problems (VERY IMPORTANT!). Thanks again for your persistence and for your help. This house-selling endeavor is crazy and exhausting but we’re fortunate to have chosen you! It’s wonderful whenever a reliable realtor comes along."



"Nicole demonstrated exceptional skill in communication, negotiation, market strategy and her ability to deliver our goals. Please know that she will be honest about your home as she provided a list of things for us to do in order to gain top dollar, but the gains were well worth the work. The end result is we listed and within two days we had offers. She will go to bat for you to make sure you are getting the best deal possible. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering a realtor."



"Nicole was truly the best agent we could have asked for. She has a wealth of knowledge and what seems like an unlimited amount of contacts in the real estate industry. We were halfway through renovating our home with the intention of selling, and thanks to Nicole's long list of contacts, we were able to complete additional renovations which further increased our list price and we sold over our asking price. Nicole is amazing at what she does."



"Nicole's expertise in real estate was huge in getting my house ready to list and ultimately sell. She "held my hand" throughout and guided me in making informed decisions. My home had multiple offers in the first 3 days on the market. Nicole was always available to answer my questions throughout the entire process. I highly recommend her as an agent. I seriously could not of sold my home without her!"



"As a first time homebuyer, Nicole made it very simple and easy for us! She walked up through every step, and was super quick to respond to any questions we did have. Most importantly I felt like I could trust Nicole. Coming from someone who didn't think they needed a real estate agent, I now am going to recommend her to anyone who is looking. She has the experience and knowledge, but above all, Nicole is honest and really cared about what was best for us and we couldn't have done it without her."



"Nicole helped us sell our Uptown condo and buy our dream North Park home. Her market analysis determined our condo was worth significantly more than I estimated. She recommended and helped us with several economical improvements to enhance the value. She brought her own items to improve the presentation and even helped move stuff to the basement in preparation for our open house!

Within a week of listing we had multiple offers at or above our listing price and successfully closed as scheduled.

At the same time she helped us purchase a single family home. We visited nearly a dozen houses with Nicole and with her help developed an excellent understanding of what we wanted. When we found the perfect house she negotiated a very fair price and we closed the sale within 5 weeks.

Nicole’s attention to detail, eye for design, follow-up, work-ethic and market knowledge made our sale and purchase a fantastic experience. The people she referred us to (contractor, lender) were also fantastic. Even after the sale she was available to answer questions and help in any way she could. We highly recommend Nicole!"



"Nicole stayed with us all throughout to what seems like a forever grueling process, as we have been searching for the perfect property with unique requirements. We’re so lucky to have such a knowledgeable and remarkably resourceful realtor. Every bump along the way, Nicole has a way to get it resolved. That’s why she does not only relieves the stress out of buying real estate, but she makes it an enjoyable and exciting experience. We couldn't have trusted our future with anyone other than you. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you so much dear!"



"I've used Nicole now to buy 2 homes and sell one! She is awesome hardworking and very professional! The perfect person to get the job done quickly and for the best price!!"



"Nicole is a remarkable realtor. She is caring, listens, asks good questions and does her homework. She will work with you to make a plan and then work hard to make it happen. She also brings valuable experience on how best to stage your home for the maximum appeal to potential buyers. You just need to let go and "let Nicole!" and all works out as it should. We did the work she asked of us to get our place ready for listing and then we had multiple offers within 2 days. What more can you ask? I will definitely recommend Nicole to family and friends for sure. One final note: In addition to being a great Realtor, she is fun, energetic, and brings a lot of tools and materials with her from @ Properties."



"Nicole assited us with selling our condo and purchasing our first family home in the suburbs. Throughout the selling and buying process, we encountered a couple major "bumps" along road, which resulted in an extremely stressful experience for us. Nicole was always up for the challenge and never gave up, even when situations seemed hopeless! She handled the difficult buyers, the difficult sellers and was always by our side. We appreciated her honesty, persistence and passion."



"Nicole hands-down is one of the best realtors we have ever worked with! Her contact list was invaluable to helping us get the property prepared for sale and for closing! Her patience and extra efforts to help us sell our rental property was so worth every penny! Couldn’t have asked for anyone better!"



"Nicole was extremely helpful and insightful throughout the entire home buying process. I was new to Chicago when beginning my condo hunt, making it imperative that my agent had a deep knowledge of the Chicagoland real estate market and strong familiarity with the offerings of its various neighborhoods. Nicole not only possessed that knowledge but was tremendously patient with me as I must have toured over 40 different units and switched back and forth between different neighborhoods. Her enthusiasm never wavered as I insisted on seeing so many units and different neighborhoods. She allowed me to personally get a feel for each neighborhood as we searched, and eventually helped me find the exact unit I was searching for. Throughout the search she was always accommodating to my busy schedule and made herself available regardless of the day or time. Even after purchasing, Nicole has continued to serve as a resource for any issues or concerns regarding homeownership. This mirrors the experience I had with Nicole during the search, as she consistently went beyond what her responsibilities should have entailed. I could not be happier with or more strongly recommend Nicole."



"7 years ago, Nicole helped us buy our condo in Lakeview. It was our first purchase, and her infinite patience with our chronic indecisiveness paid off when we finally found the perfect place. She hustled and negotiated well beyond our expectations, resulting in a great deal for a great property. When it came time for us to sell the condo, we didn't hesitate in calling Nicole. We knew we needed to refinish the wood floors, re-carpet the unit, re-paint everything, and update the kitchen. She advised us throughout the process to maximize our sale price while minimizing our cash outlay. She has a whole army of people that she is able to call to handle the painting, electrical, flooring, HVAC, mechanical, and carpentry needs - all at or below market rates for their services, without sacrificing quality. All of her recommendations led to us getting multiple offers less than a month after the property went on the market, and all above list price.
When you hire Nicole, you aren't just hiring a Real Estate Professional who will hustle and work hard to get what you need, you are also accessing her treasure of contacts, her thorough knowledge of the Chicagoland area, and her passion to meet your needs.
When I am ready to buy my next place, Nicole will be my first and only phone call."



""Nicole was the best! She went above and beyond our expectations to sell our property. In only 3 days we had 5 offers above our asking price. Nicole was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone!""

"Thanks to Nicole, I found a fantastic home and my home-hunting experience with has been extremely positive. She was kind, professional and courteously and patiently responded to all my needs, requests and questions. Additionally she went through the entire process of the house purchase and time frame from beginning to end and it all went smoothly. Nicole took her time to really listen to me and scheduled all showings based on my specific requirements. We promptly discussed the market, offers, negotiations and any and all potential problems and suggestions for solutions. I thoroughly appreciated her keeping in touch through the entire process and all her guidance and follow-up. I have already recommended her to friends and will continue to do so."



"As apartment dwellers for most of our life, my husband and i decided we wanted to own a home. We contacted Nicole Norwalk for help finding that special home. Being first time home buyers we didn't have a clue about the process of finding and purchasing a home. Nicole stepped in to explain every detail of finding and purchasing a home. We could not have done it without her. Thanks again Nicole"



"Nicole provided an excellent resource of expertise in the selling of our home. She was extremely valuable with her approach at all aspects of marketing, open house viewings as well as negotiations. I highly recommend Nicole for your next listing."



"Nicole was fantastic through every step as I sold my townhome. She helped me figure out what work needed to be done to fetch the best price, had a list of contractors to help complete that work, assisted with staging, and walked me through the sale itself. She was hands-on and incredibly supportive from start to finish. I couldn't have been in better hands."



"Nicole is a rock star! I was helping a friend out who is relocating to Chicago and she was very efficient in setting up several properties for me to see. She really understood my friend's needs and was very helpful considering he could not be with us to look at the properties. We found the perfect place within hours. Simply put, Nicole is a must use resource for all of your real estate needs. Sean will enjoy his new place! Thanks Nicole!"



"Nicole is the third realtor i had come across to deal with. Indeed the other two were good or rather excellent. But then how to describe Nicole--EXCEPTIONAL i suppose.
I am a retired person moved into USA about two years back. Decided to invest into property to generate some income for my living. My total savings left were $ 90000.00. On some recommendations i contacted Nicole and gave her my requirements. Unlike most other agents she did not start auto mailing me scores of properties with a wide range of price some rent able some not.
Instead she short listed some which fitted my requirement and viewed them personally before mailing them to me. That saved me frequent unnecessary long drives. We only made one trip to view the properties.
Out of her experience she was able to observe even the most minute pluses and minuses of each and every apartment, keeping in consideration the tow association and taxes.
This made it easy for us to choose the right property. We also sought her opinion for making the offer which was duly accepted by the seller without any further negotiations. The offer was of course less than the asking price.
Because of highly upgraded apartment and its good location we were able find a tenant within 15 days. It seems i will end up geting about 8% return on my invsetment.
Wowww
Thank you Nicole"



"Nicole is truly amazing. She went above and beyond helping me even being all the way in Florida. Her personal video to me, her very detailed emails, and truly defines what it means to be a trusted advisor. Nicole brings back hope in the world there are still good people with clients being the primary focus. I would not use anyone else in Chicago and she has earned a raving fan!!"



"I really enjoyed working with Nicole. She was very knowledgeable and did her work to come up with a fair market value of the property. She was very professional and very responsive to my emails, phone calls and text messages considering I was working with her from Phoenix and the property was in Chicago. She also had recommendations on moving companies, remodeling companies, attorneys and title companies, which I also had quick responses from and very professional. I highly Nicole as your real estate professional. John Migala"

When I found myself in a position to have to sell in 2016, she worked for me as a sellers agent, and again has been on top of things every step of the way, explaining what I did not understand and negotiating on my behalf. I would absolutely engage her services again and feel fortunate to have found her."
