"I count Nicole as not only my realtor, but also my friend. She is a wonderful person and a consummate professional who knows more about San Diego, and housing specifically, than anyone I've worked with before. When I was transferring to San Diego from Bahrain in 2016, she helped me find and purchase a home with less than ten days in San Diego before I had to travel for work again. After showing me dozens of properties over those ten days, everything else was done over phone and internet. Almost 4 years later, after being transferred again and while I was at sea with spotty internet connectivity, she was able to sell the same property in less than a week for more than $20k over asking. Flexibility and professionalism abound with Nicole. I don't normally write reviews, because I am often disappointed by some aspect of the service received and if you can't say something nice about someone, well, you know... Writing this, however, was easy. Nicole is the best around and you would be hard pressed to find a better realtor in San Diego. Do yourself a favor and call her!!"

"Nicole is THE BEST real estate agent working in San Diego. She recently helped my wife and I find and purchase our first home. She was very patient with us and made searching for a house fun. Because of her experience, she has great insight into the communities throughout San Diego and into aspects of house selection and buying that we would not have considered on our own. Buying a home can be naturally stressful, but we were lucky to have her guide us through the process. She is also very smart about her negotiation tactics, and having her on our side definitely saved us money. She is trustworthy, organized, knowledgeable, and a true professional in every aspect. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

"Nicole is the absolute best! She worked with us every step of the way and went above and beyond. She made the home buying experience fun and stress free! Thanks again Nicole you are the best!!!"

"I can't recommend Nicole highly enough. She is patient with her clients, but fights for every single thing she can when the right property is found. She also helped with anything she can post-purchase, including cleaning services, all inspections, and everything in between."

"Nicole's expertise and professionalism transformed the daunting task of buying a home into a very positive experience. From the first time we met with Nicole to look for homes, she immediately understood our home-buying needs and helped us every step of the way. We just moved into our lovely home and could not have done it without Nicole!"
