My husband and I purchased our first home in May 2011. Nick Gelfand was our realtor. His extensive knowledge as a realtor and background in appraising was extremely helpful throughout our home-buying process. I would definitely recommend Nick to anyone I knew that was searching for their next home. Our experience was priceless!!
Bought a home in 2011 in Cayenne, West Springfield, MA 01089.
Home buying can be one of the most stressful events in a person's life, and I can honestly say that having Nick as our realtor was the easiest and best decision we made. Nick navigated us through a very challenging situation, with the seller attempting to back out days before closing, Nick was there every step of the way. I would without a doubt recommend working with Nick, his experience and knowledge are superior, and we feel so lucky to have made a friend in the process.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Longmeadow, MA.
Nick showed us properties he thought were a fit.
He also provided daily updates on new listings in the areas we were interested in.
When we wanted to see a property Nick was able to set up a viewing as quickly as our schedules allowed. He was always on time.
Nick's knowledge of the fair market value on homes is excellent and he has a keen eye for features or potential issues in the homes. He is a professional appraiser, which probably gives him an advantage in this area.
Once we decided to make the offer Nick was extremely helpful in facilitating the process. Bank, Lawyers, Inspection, and items to fix after inspection were all handled very well and probably as smoothly as possible.
We were lucky and this process was a breeze, which I attribute to Nick doing his best to make it painless.
I would highly recommend Nick to show you properties, or if you find one on your own and want a pro to help make the process as smooth as possible as this is where his skills really shine.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Templeton, MA.
Nick and NRG helped me sell my house in less than 3 months; significantly less time than I expected with a number that I was very comfortable at as well. Part of the reason I held off from putting the home on the market was the overwhelmingness I felt about the entire process. I needed a lot of guidance and NRG provided it!!! I'm sure I asked many stupid questions along the way but Nick's patience with me was unbelieveable. From the spot on appraisal through closing I felt very comfortable throughout the entire experience.
If you are in the process of looking to buy or sell property I strongly suggest you give Nick and his wonderful staff at NRG Real Estate a call. I'm certainly glad I did!!!
