"We worked with Nicole for over two years, looking for a perfect home for our family of five. We looked all over the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side for the perfect home. Nicole only sent us listings that fit our criteria and really listened to what we wanted. If she thought our wish list was not realistic, she would tell us which of the criteria weren’t as important as the others and the reasons always made sense. Nicole was extremely patient with us throughout the process and never pressured us to make a decision. She wanted us to be confident in our decision and feel comfortable making this large purchase. We are so happy with our home and our children are thrilled as well. We would never make another real estate decision anywhere in the world without consulting Nicole for her opinion. We recommend her to all of our friends that are looking for a bright, clever, hard-working broker." -Buyer of 200 E 78th Apartment 6BC
"Our close friend introduced us to Nicole when I asked her for her advice in finding the top real estate professional in New York who could help me find my ideal 4-5 bedroom on the Upper West Side. After meeting Nicole for the first time, we felt so comfortable talking about what we were looking for and could tell right away how knowledgeable she was on every Upper West Side building. She knew which buildings had fussy coop boards, which buildings had financial issues, which had better service, and which would be perfectly situated for us and our three small children. Nicole helped us find our dream apartment and made sure that our initial offers were in line with the comps in the neighborhood so we could get the best deal possible on each apartment we were interested in. Nicole was honest about how much she thought our big renovation would cost and how much time it would take. Not only did Nicole help us secure our home, she has become our friend, confidant and psychiatrist for life. I could not have asked for a more positive experience.” -Buyer of 200 W 86th Apartment 18FGHI
"We could not have been more impressed by your work ethic, critical thinking and ability to achieve the highest price ever for a comparable apartment in our building. No one could have handled our multiple bidding situation better than you. Our neighbors were thrilled because you increased the value of their units as well. We will gladly refer all of our friends to you." -Seller of 15D, 229 East 79th Street
"You constantly went above and beyond and were forced to put up with a lot from us. At the end of the day you found us the perfect apartment that wasn't even listed! We appreciate you being available for us twenty four hours a day, 7 days a week until you found us the perfect apartment. We could not have done this without your expertise and guidance." -Buyer of 200 East 78th Street
"We think you really did a terrific job- we really appreciate all your hard work getting multiple offers and culminating in a successful, smooth transaction. You exceeded all of our expectations and we know this was not an easy task based on how business is done in our own professions of real estate finance/development and the hedge fund industry. You jumped at the chance to show our apartment for every request even if made one hour in advance and you helped make many buyers fall in love with our home and want to make it their own. We would be happy to serve as reference for you." -Seller of 310 East 70th Street
"NICOLE WALLEN HEFFNER is the consummate real estate professional. She is knowledgeable and tenacious, but never pushy. The fact that she holds a law degree is a major plus. We first met Nicole by accident (a happy accident) when we were just dipping our toes in the Manhattan market. She was patient—very patient—with us as we “tried on” different apartments to see if this was the right move for us. Her breadth of knowledge about the neighborhood we zeroed in on was unparalleled. She was very careful in how she communicated our offers to the selling agents and was very thoughtful in the bidding process. We don’t know what we would have done without Nicole during the process of pulling together our financials for the package that was ultimately submitted and accepted by the COOP board. Her help getting us to closing was invaluable. The highest compliment we could give her is to recommend her services to others and to say that we would use her again." -Buyer of 175 East 74th Street
