Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Macomb, IL.
I purchased two homes while working with Nick. He knows the market really well and makes a good negotiator. In addition, he keeps helping you after buying with problems you may encounter, assessment appeals, or anything else you may need to figure out in your new home. Work with him, you won't regret it!
I would recommend Nick to anyone that truly wants to understand the process of buying a house works and how it can be painless. He was always there to answer any question that my wife or I had about a house we looked at, taxes, etc. He would always make time to meet with us, whether at a specific house we wanted to see or his office, to answer any questions that we had. The quality that I liked most about Nick was how well he explained the paperwork and process. I will be the first to say that I can't stand when people talk too quickly or over my head, and Nick never did that. He took the time to explain things in a way that made both my wife and me feel comfortable in knowing that we truly understood everything. His knowledge of the area is great, and if he doesn't know the answer to a question at that very moment, he will take the time to find the answer and get back to you. My wife and I hope to never move again, but we will definitely call Nick again if we decide to. I would recommend him to anyone!
Nick was very good to work with. This was our first house that we ever bought, and he was very patient to the number of listings that we wanted to view, and to help guide us along the way with the negotiation.
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $7.875M in Macomb, IL.
Nick was a wonderful realtor to work with. My husband and I were first time home buyers when we worked with Nick. He made the overwhelming process of finding "the one" so much more bearable and enjoyable. Nick's relaxed attitude and knowledge of the area immediately put me at ease, and he was always so quick to respond anytime I needed something. I would very highly recommend Nick to anyone looking to purchase a home in this area.
Nick has helped us in selling and purchasing a new home. He was great to work with. He is very honest and would inform us of anything that we would have questions about. In all of the paper work he was very knowledgeable about everything and made sure that we completely understood everything that we were signing. Nick also would do his best to get us into any property that we wanted to see, making us feel like we were important to him and his business. He never made us feel like he didn't care or he had better things to do. We highly recommend him to all of our friends and family. If you are looking for a Realtor that is passionate about his work, I would choose Nick Curtis.
The house that I purchased using Nick as an agent was very out of the ordinary. It was located far outside of his normal listing location and was very secluded. Anytime that I wanted to view the property Nick was certain to make time to make the hour drive to meet me at the property, even if it was to check one or two seemingly small details that I had questions about. I did have to do some leg-work on my own, but I really didn't mind. After all was said and done the process took approximately 6 months, but it was well worth it. The situation was made very cumbersome by a lot of unforseen issues that as Nick stated "rarely ever happen all at once." This purchase had practically every curve ball in the book, but Nick never lost sight of the end goal of getting me in the house. He took into account the importance of placing me in the right home. If I know of anybody that needs anything dealing in realestate, I will be sure to point them in the direction of Mr. Nick Curtis
Nick Curtis is not only a consummate professional, he is an excellent agent. He has a great deal of knowledge of Macomb, and many trustworthy resources to service your home's needs. He is very personable and easy to work with. He goes far above and beyond to ensure he is providing the best possible service to his customers. I highly recommend Nick Curtis.
