WE HAD MET WITH A FEW AGENTS BEFORE MEETING UP WITH NICOLE
We had met with a few agents before meeting up with Nicole but looked no further after seeing her. As first time home buyers, we were constantly learning about the market and more-so about our own priorities. Nicole was always sensitive to our ‘ever-changing’ requirements. We always had a lot of questions for her and she was always very responsive and patient. She has a very cheerful/accommodating/patient demeanor, which made it easier for us to ‘bombard’ her with our questions and doubts. Nicole was super flexible in terms of her availability. She was reachable via all possible channels – texting, email, phone. She was pretty helpful in going over listings, filtering them, adding more and of course touring any property that we wanted her inputs on. She never pushed us to bid on any property. On the contrary, she was pretty open when she didn’t like a property after touring it together. When we did express interest – she was on top of it – that’s how we eventually got our new home! Ours was a last minute offer. Nicole took serious initiative in keeping the seller’s agent engaged while we worked on the offer. Also, since she’s a listing agent as well, it helped to get the seller’s POV while putting up the offer. Nicole’s contacts in the real estate market – ranging from lenders to home inspectors to contractors really helped us transition to our first home a lot easier. Her inputs on every aspect of home buying reflect a good deal of experience. As first time home buyers we couldn’t have asked for more!
