Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $475K in Allied Gardens, San Diego, CA.
My husband and I began looking for a house towards the end of last year. We chose Nicole Mazzola of Andrew Arroyo Real Estate as our realtor. She was absolutely excellent. She went above and beyond to make sure we found the home we were looking for. Her attention to detail was exceptional. No matter what questions we asked, no matter what we needed, she was there to help us through the entire process. She made the entire process of looking for a house very enjoyable. We never questioned whether something was getting done- Nicole was already on top of things for us.
She helped us find a beautiful home at a great price. We are so very thankful to her and to Andrew Arroyo Real Estate for their astounding service to us.
Nicole is the best! This is our first home and Nicole was so patient with us and sent us a lot of useful information from the beniginning to the end. She has exceptional negotiating skills and extensive network, which helped a lot in the whole process. Especially we always hear back from Nicole so quickly and she alwasy reminded us for something that we even didn't think about. We feel we're lucky to have Nicole as our agent for our first home
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Clairemont Mesa East, San Diego, CA.
Nicole Mazzola was a dream to work with. My property went into escrow one week from the listing date with multiple offers all above the asking price. Nicole's drive, knowledge, and responsiveness are unparalleled by any other agent I have worked with. Andrew Arroyo was also able to handle most of the paperwork online which saved me time and hassle through escrow. I would with out a doubt use them in the future and recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.875M in Encinitas, CA.
Nicole Mazzola helped us purchase a magnificent beach house in Southern California. She was incredibly informed, professional and easy to work with. She was always available to us and instantly attended to all our questions and concerns. We have purchased several properties in California and New York and she was, by far, the best realtor we have ever worked with. We would use her again in a heartbeat!
Nicole is the best! Her positive, friendly and professional approach to selling real estate has been painless for us. Our family has purchased two properties and sold one of those properties just recently. She has also sold another beach front home which went into escrow ONE WEEK after caravan. Her attention to detail is amazing - she checks and double checks everything.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA.
I recently used Nicole in two transactions in 2012 and she was perfect every time.
My first experience with Nicole was when I purchased my home in 2007. I then used her again to sell that home in 2012. She also sold an investment listing of ours in 2012 and that was perhaps the most amazing deal I've ever seen. It could not have gone smoother (and that was not an easy transaction to manage).
I could sit here and write on and on about how great Nicole is, how she is meticulous in her review of the paperwork and the transaction process and how ferocious she is in protecting her clients interests.
She is all of those things.
However, I don't think that's necessary. We all know how many "less than ideal" real estate agents are out there clamoring for your business. I could have picked anyone of them. I didn't. I used her three times in five years. What more is there to say?
Andrew helped me and my husband in the search and purchase of our first home. He took the time to listen and the care to find homes that fit our style and budget. He has remained in contact thru the years and kept us updated on market changes and homeowner tips. Andrew is passionate about his clients and has created quite a "family". I highly recommend Andrew Arroyo. Sara A.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $450K in North Park, San Diego, CA.
I worked with Nicole Mazzola two years ago to buy an investment condo that was in foreclosure. Even though the process took an entire year, Nicole never gave up or got discouraged. She was wonderful. I promised I would be back and am happy to say we just closed the deal on a charming bungalow. Again, Nicole was super! She is patient, professional and goes beyond what anyone would expect of an agent. I recommend Nicole and Andrew Arroyo Realty for first-class, conscientious service.
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $375K in Escondido, CA.
We had the pleasure of having Nicole Mazzola from Andrew Arroyo as our real estate agent. Nicole was unrelenting in her effort on our behalf. Due to outside factors our purchase process was not an easy one, but Nicole handled it with incredible poise and determination. In many cases she went far above and beyond what I would have ever expected from a real estate agent. Nicole is one of the most professional people I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and I’m certain that I’ll never buy another house without her.
Nicole assisted us, who live on the East coast, for two years when we would travel out to the San Diego area to find our retirement home. Throughout the two years, she educated us about different neighborhoods and guided us throughout the process of home purchase. Nicole devoted entire weeks to be with us to see homes when we visited CA --without any pressure. When we were on the East coast, Nicole would call us about homes that might interest us, send us flip videos of the homes we liked on the MLS, quickly respond to our calls, and regularly send us wonderful updates of economic development plans about the area. It never felt that we were across country with three hours difference!
Nicole is truly interested in having satisfied clients. On one occasion when we were considering making an offer, Nicole actually reviewed our criteria with us to keep us on track so we would be satisfied with our purchase. She went above and beyond by helping us find a tenant until we make the cross-country move. Nicole still sends us information about new economic developments for the area after our purchase! We would highly recommend Nicole. She went above what was expected and made the process pleasurable. For us, she has become a family member!
