"Nicole is very knowledgable in the area and has completely understanding of how the market is. She suggested me on how the house should be marketed including the remodeling the house and choosing the best price as per current market trend. She helped me selling the house pretty fast. Thanks Nicole."

"Nicole representing my family while we were living in Maryland and planning our relocation to Illinois. She was very helpful and knowledgeable. I also thought she was very prompt and professional. Most importantly Nicole went the extra mile with representing my family when we couldn’t attend certain house purchase milestones. Nicole was fantastic throughout the process."

"From the moment I met Nicole at an open house, I knew I wanted to work with her. She was professional and personal, and helped me every step of the way. I could not recommend anyone else more highly, and would work with Nicole again in a heartbeat."

"I luckily stumbled across Nicole while searching for a house to rent. She was quick to respond - and was willing to show me houses whenever I found one that might be a possibility. She never pushed me to like certain properties - but let me decide if that property worked or not. She spent hours sending me listings of possibilities - and then spent hours going with me to see them. After we found our house, Nicole kept in constant touch with us to make sure everything was handled properly. And, after we signed a contract and moved in, Nicole called to see if everything was OK and if there was anything that was needed. Honestly can't say enough good things about Nicole. She is professional, dependable and honest in her dealings. We will be sure to call on her again if we need to move."

"Nicole is very professional and the combination of both real estate and legal background is helpful during a home selling process. She was completely engaged even during the COVID time frame and never stopped."
