Ratings & Reviews

We chose Brett Nichols as our Realtor when shopping for a home because he was recommended by family members. We started working with him in January and finally closed on a wonderful house last week. Brett has been terrific! He is tireless, thoughtful and amazingly responsive by text, phone and email . We always felt we had his undivided attention and he asked all the right questions to help us zero in on properties that were a good fit. He was impressively thorough at the houses we visited, pointing out positive and negative aspects that we otherwise would have missed. More than once Brett put on his overalls to check out a crawl space. He has a great street-by-street knowledge of neighborhoods throughout Bellingham, where we were shopping. He is also just plain fun to visit houses with. There is a lot of competition for houses in our price range--they often go pending within hours of being listed. Brett helped us quickly jump on new listings and was always prepared to submit an offer without delay. He's a very smart strategist and had plenty of great ideas for dealing with the current "feeding frenzy". We are delighted with the house we found. With a less aggressive Realtor, we would not have been able to submit an offer on that property in time to be considered. We were grateful to be able to trust Brett to look out for our interests at every stage of negotiations and through closing No detail was too small--he helped us resolve every issue to our satisfaction. Brett did a terrific job for us from beginning to end and we recommend him without reservation.

Sold a Vacant Land home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Ferndale, WA.

Very pleased with Brett. I initially contacted him a year ago to contemplate selling a property. Brett provided good advice and when the time came to list the property, I turned to Brett. We listed the property and sold within a week. His follow up is good and he is very knowledgeable of the real estate market in the Ferndale and Bellingham. We highly recommend Brett for your real estate needs.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Columbia, Bellingham, WA.

He is a very thoughtful person who will work hard for you. He has a lot of experience building and remodeling and also knows what to look for in homes, some things that the average person would not notice or look for. He is willing to help in many ways and goes out of his way to make the experience of buying a home not so difficult.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2011 in Roosevelt, Bellingham, WA.

Brett is down to earth, responsive and is willing and able to think outside of the box. He has been very patient as we were not in a hurry and looking for something very specific.

Sold a home in 2010 in Dewey, WA 98226.

My husband and I are very impressed with Brett, not only as a realtor, but also as a person who is very honest and has a high degree of integrity. We listed our waterfront home with Brett and he did everything he could to get this home sold quickly. Brett had professional pictures taken for advertising, held open houses, and yes, was very honest with us about lowering the price to make the house more competitive. We followed his recommendation and our house sold. Brett was a masterful negotiator and got the very best dollar for our home that was possible. He knows the Pacific Northwest area well and the value of property. If we had questions, Brett would respond almost immediately and always had a pleasant and positive attitude. Brett's calm personality and patience kept us reassured that we were in good hands. He is our realtor of choice!

Bought a home in 2012 in Birchwood, Bellingham, WA 98225.

Brett is an excellent realtor. He knows the area well, has his finger on the pulse of great deals and short sales and is always available when you have a question or want to see a property.

He's friendly, laid-back and knowledgeable and he'll help you find your next great property! Short sales are notoriously "long sales", in that they're full of twists, turns and take quite a bit of finessing on the part of the realtor. Oh, and did I mention they take months rather than weeks to close?

Brett's patience and negotiating skills are perfect for these types of transactions. It took us nearly 7 months, but it looks like he's sealed the deal on the house we love. We'd use him again, in a heartbeat!
