"I was recommended by a friend to reach out to Nicole. From the very first conversation she was attentive, focused and most of all happy to help me in the journey of selling my home. She provided me with insight from interior and exterior colors, what should and shouldn’t be done to generate the type of buyer I needed to reach my goals of profit. She went above and beyond the call of duty from staging , to correspondence , to keeping me updated on a continual basis through my entire sale process. Whether it was reminders of whose coming to inspect X or just sending me information as the process continued in the background. No question was devalued, no concern was ignored. Her work ethic is above what my previous experiences were with other realtors. Nicole met all of my expectations and in my opinion went beyond the call of duty to make sure I was in good hands. I will surely be using her again as the bar has now been set and going backwards is not an option for me. I can confidently recommend her to all my friends, family , and others who wish to be in good hands with their investment and receive sound judgement that only comes with experience. I am lucky to have found such an amazing realtor who truly cares."

"We entered a very difficult housing market in the Santa Barbara, Goleta area in late 2021. Nicole was our real estate agent from the beginning to the end until we bought a home. Simply put, we have had a fantastic time with Nicole. Thanks to her expert knowledge of the area, the school systems and the market, we successfully bought a dream house by Spring 2022, only a few months after we entered the market.Nicole goes above and beyond in her professionalism. Having moved to the Santa Barbara area only recently, we did not have an in-depth knowledge of the neighborhoods. Nicole's deep understanding of the market as well as all the neighborhoods of Santa Barbara/Goleta area were exceptionally helpful. On occasion, Nicole had access to properties before others, giving us a competitive advantage. Nicole being a well-known and well-connected personality, we would often meet a friend of hers or two during open-houses who would give us the scoop about a neighborhood. With Nicole, we always had access to some important detail we might have missed otherwise. During planning, offers and escrow, Nicole has shown incredible professionalism, always on time and always collegial to everyone involved in the process. We appreciated Nicole's systematic evaluations which also helped tremendously during our appraisal in a rapidly evolving market. We sincerely believe Nicole's involvement was a critical factor that worked in our favor in a competitive market.Above all, Nicole made the process fun and friendly. We were never stressed and always enjoyed the ride with her. Nicole never pressured us even on the tiniest decision, she let us figure out everything ourselves while managing to give her best possible advice on just about anything. We extend Nicole our strongest possible recommendation. You will have a great experience with her."

"I have lived in Santa Barbara for 32 years and during that time have been involved in numerous real estate transactions. I can honestly say, with complete confidence, that Nicole Dinkelacker is the most knowledgeable, professional, hard working real estate agent I have ever worked with. Nicole consistently goes above and beyond whether she is selling your current home or helping you find the perfect new home. Her knowledge of the Santa Barbara is unsurpassed. She is an amazing negotiator and most importantly she is a pleasure to work with. She has an uncanny way of understanding your needs, fulfilling them, and making the whole process stress free. After my excellent experience with Nicole, I recommended her to friends and have seen her put the same enthusiastic, competent, caring work into their transactions. She is not only a superior real estate agent, but an amazing individual who will always work hard to make sure you are completely happy. Buying and selling a home can be very stressful, but with Nicole Dinkelacker at your side you will always feel secure and very well represented. I highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking for an exceptional real estate agent."

"I have been involved in numerous real estate transactions over the years, and can wholeheartedly endorse Ms. Nicole Dinkelacker as the best, most professional and hardworking agent that I (and my husband) have worked with. I am 60 year old MD, with 4 children which means life is chaotic at best without the stress of a move or property purchase. Nicole has a gift for assuring that all parties feel heard, secure and informed about the transaction every step of the way. She is able to do so with diligence, kindness and a level of professionalism that is very difficult to find. Her 'tag line' is 'service above and beyond', and even that is an underestimation of her skills."

"We loved working with Nicole. She came highly recommended to us and we would definitely recommend her to others! As first time home buyers we had very little knowledge of the process and the questions we should be asking. Nicole helped us each step of the way and found us the right house for us, which can be quite tricky in Santa Barbara. She knew the neighborhoods well and advised us on the potential costly and bothersome things that we should be aware of. Throughout our search and escrow Nicole was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. She is a pleasure to work with and we would definitely work with her again."
-Kristi & Ian F.

"Nicole has represented us as sellers in two transactions and as buyers in two transactions. She ALWAYS puts the needs and wants of her clients before anything else and approaches every transaction with the full force of her considerable experience and professionalism. Her integrity is absolute and her ability to negotiate showcases her creativity and win-win philosophy. She is unrelenting in her pursuit of her clients best interests and is respected throughout the community for her volunteerism and her excellence as a Realtor."
