Nicki is awesome to work with! My partner and I decided to become snowbirds and spend winters in Palm Springs, the house next door to our rental went on the market and we fell in love with it. So then we made Nicki show us everything else on the market so we could be sure of our decision. The negotiations went smoothly, we wanted a quick closing and she made it all happen. She is honest, experienced, professional, knows the market, and is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

Nicki did a great job! She did not feed me any “fluff” on what she thought our house was worth. We listed at the correct price and sold within 7 days. Other properties in the area were on the market for 60 days plus and Nicki outsold them. As a business man I can appreciate that. Would highly recommend and will use Nicki when we purchase our next home in Palm Springs!

Best Home Buying Experience Ever — I met Nicki at an open house, and after speaking with her for five minutes, I knew I found the Palm Springs agent I wanted to represent me when purchasing a property. It didn’t take long before I was making an offer, but beforehand Nicki made sure I was completely educated as to comparable properties, location, potential costs, and more. When it came to negotiating the final selling price, Nicki went to bat for me when I was about to give up – and won! I always felt Nicki was looking after my best interests. Escrow went smoothly and Nicki would update me continually throughout the process. Ultimately, escrow closed a few days early. Nearly everything was handled electronically, and since I’m based in Los Angeles it made things very convenient. I am thrilled with my purchase, and thank Nicki for making it all come together. I look forward to making memories there with friends and family for years to come.

I was first introduced to Nicki by a friend who had worked with her in San Francisco. When I started thinking about moving to Palm Springs and started visiting more often, Nicki was kind enough to give me a tour of the city. I really was unfamiliar with Palm Springs proper, so her tour gave me a better sense of the neighborhoods. I kept telling her, tho, that I wanted to rent rather than own….Six months later, my Palm Springs short-term rental was up. I finally bit the bullet and gave Nicki a call. I gave her a map with a circle which covered the area I wanted to live as close to downtown as possible….On the first day out we looked at two units and made an offer on the second one, which was just what I wanted.
That was the easy part. The hard part, Nicki handled like the pro she is. She negotiated the price of an overpriced condo and educated an out of town service provider chosen by the seller. She referred me to a mortgage broker who had experience working complex loan applications for someone like me who had retired. And throughout a somewhat difficult transaction, Nicki kept her cool and navigated us to closing.
Because Nicki listened to what I wanted and understood my perspective, she didn’t waste my time with properties that wouldn’t work for me. I found the condo complex into which I’d moved was even more than I’d expected. I found a community of people who cared about their homes and neighbors. Real estate isn’t always easy. Nicki knows when she has to work to make a sale happen, but she knows where to pick her battles. I’d recommend you give Nicki a call for your next Palm Springs & Coachella Valley purchase or sale.

Nicki was quite a wizard in selling my dad’s house with three rental units attached when he passed away. She started off by calling on different realtors in the area to get a feel for the market. Prior to putting it on the market, she showed the property to a local realtor with several clients, my dad’s realtor and a neighbor. They all put in offers. Then Nicki listed the property on the MLS where she was bombarded with [many competitive] offers. Of course she encouraged me to consider the highest offers, but I was more concerned with doing good by my father who would have wanted to make sure the tenants and neighborhood stayed in good hands. So she helped me work through all the details that would make that possible.

If you add in “being a good listener” who is always prompt and offers guidance when needed — then Nicki is the right match for your next real estate adventure.

Nicki was an invaluable asset with regards to my search for a vacation home in Palm Springs. She was patient with me as a first-time home buyer and actively listened to my wishes and needs, finding me my vacation dream home (and negotiating a great price)! Highly recommend Nicki to anyone seeking a trusted real estate professional.

Nicki was wonderful in finding an ideal home in a great location in Palm Springs. I highly recommend her for her skill and knowledge in dealing with real estate. Made my life so much easier.

Our recent experience with Nicki & [her business partner] Donna in handling our purchase of an investment home in Rancho Mirage was flawless. As Nicki often said, “I’m the hammer!” She used her experience and skill in negotiating with the seller and sellers agent to get us a great deal. Donna was always there to assist in making sure all the necessary documents were ready to sign in a timely manner.
–Martin S, San Francisco
We worked with Nicki for nearly 2 years to find our current home. She was fantastic, and truly cared about our needs in executing our house search. She made the process as enjoyable as it could be, and was always there with words of encouragement and support. We would definitely recommend her!
–Chelsea M, San Francisco
Nicki was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was prompt in responding to my questions, very knowledgeable with the market, trends, and the communities not only where I bought my loft but also with properties I viewed in other locations. She was meticulous in her handling of the offer to purchase through a seamless closing. Nicki is the type of agent you want working for you. The bonus I received was making a new friend and having the pleasure of continuing a friendship with her.

We ran a rigorous interview process for a listing agent, and Nicki came out on top. She is fluent in all of the latest marketing tools and is in step with all of the digital technologies that speed up the sales and transaction process. Not only was she ready to list our home on fairly short notice, but also she priced the property correctly and we accepted a good offer within a week of listing. The best part is, her expertise only began with the offer – she saw the entire transaction through with a great combination of people skills, sales talent and real estate savvy. Home buying and selling is an emotional process, and Nicki offered just the right amount of handholding – however she never exerted any undue pressure. She knows many people within the local network of realtors, mortgage brokers and title officers, which is really helpful when you are pressed for time and looking for additional insight. It was a no-brainer to ask her to help us find our new home, which she did with diligence, a realistic perspective, and a positive attitude. She even helped us find a rental when we had a gap between moving out and moving in.

I have used Nicki on 3 homes (2 purchases) and one sale in addition to finding me my office space. She has provided me with endless referrals for my various income properties and commercial spaces. Any real estate issue I have starts with a phone call with Nicki and then I almost always end up working with her or one of her people from her vast network of referrals. I also count on her to take care of referrals I send her way too. The relationship is strong and very important to my family and business.

Nicki found a home that was poorly advertised and marketed. We could not find the listing in any media that we researched. We were looking for a house for 5 years but she found the home of our dreams. Nicki helped us through looking at more than 100 homes and finally finding a nearly invisible house that turned out perfect. The house turned out to be a bankruptcy with a very complicated scenario. Nicki held our hands through the entire process and answered all our questions. Could not have done it without her.
Nicki has been always very professional, knowledgeable and of great service. She really knows the San Francisco market very well and has great interpersonal skills. I would recommend Nicki without hesitation!
