Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $450K in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.
Nick patiently worked with us two months until we found just the right home to buy. When it came time to make an offer it was then that his deftness and wisdom made themselves apparent. Real estate transactions involve lots of detail, lots of money, and often-high emotion – in other words a formula for trouble. But Nick’s levelheadedness, fairness and good suggestions based on his experience made for as smooth an escrow as we could hope. We really like our new home.
We so much admired his style that we elected to list our old house with Nick. The house sold quickly: just 46 days from listing date until close of escrow. Perhaps it was luck. But considering the details we’d say it was more than good fortune but rather the work of an expert: Nick’s photos, flyers and marketing created excitement and buyer interest. And when the offers came Nick, as we’d witnessed before, calmly negotiated between us and the buyers to create a reasonable deal for both parties.

Ny husband and I were very impressed with Nick's knowledge of the real estate marketing situation; he studiously did his homework and came with complete details on area listings, as well as recommendations.
After we settled on the best price to sell our house, he assisted us in preparing our home by offering recommendations for carpeting, etc. He also helped us stage the home. His photos and flyers were outstanding, and especially important, he had amazing resources and marketing opportunities via the Internet.
Due to his diligence, knowledge and negotiation skills, we were amazed to receive a full offer the first day! He made sure that every part of the escrow process was easy for us, and we closed on time.
We are truly grateful for Nick's concern for us and our property. He is an excellent real estate agent.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $450K in Upland, CA.
I was referred to Nick by a friend and the high recommendations my friend gave to me about him was very true. Nick is a responsive and a driven agent treating us like we were the only customers he had when he was truly busy with other clients as well. He got our house sold in 15 days and helped us find a new house within 30 days. He has great negotiating skills and is very familiar with making deals close with no hick ups along the way. I would list and buy using Nick in the future because the process was delightful and my wife and I were under no stress in the process.
Our moving process could have been a real nightmare with a 2 month old baby and a 3 year old, but Nick really went above and beyond to make things run as smooth as possible and get "the deal" done! He has expert knowledge in the area and was great to work with. We really appreciate everything he did for our family!

I had a great impression of Nick as soon as I met him. I had interviewed a number of other agents, and after meeting Nick I knew he would be the best agent for me. Throughout the selling process, Nick proved me right. I always felt like my house was his top priority, even though I know he had other listings out there. He returned my calls quickly, and with all the answers I needed. He also gave me some great and inexpensive tips on how to show my house better to get top dollar. All proving to work, because my home sold quickly even in a down market, which I attribute entirely to him. Additionally, he got me into contact with termite and home inspectors who were very professional and courteous. In general, it was a great experience to work with Nick, and I would recommend him without hesitation. I could go on and on about his professionalism, experience, and skill, but the overall point is that I would use him again in a heartbeat. He gets 6 out of 5 stars!

Nick is professional and detailed. I had been doing lots of online research of homes for sale in the La Verne area before we started working with Nick. He is extremely knowledgeable about the La Verne/San Dimas area, as he grew up here. Having this level of local knowledge is highly valuable, especially if the buyer is new to the area. Nick was also very helpful in playing a bit of "hardball" over some of the improvements that needed to be taken into consideration, when it came time to make an offer. Despite all of the research I was doing, and the houses my wife and I were interested in, the home we ended up buying, was one that Nick said we should take a look at. We didn't like it at first, but Nick encouraged us to consider it's potential. We did, and we are very happy with our home. La Verne is a great place to live, and Nick was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him.

Nick is a great agent. He helped my wife and I sell our condo, and we couldn't have been more happy with the service he provided. I would recommend him to anybody looking for a knowledgeable, responsive realtor.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $700K in La Verne, CA.
Nick helped my husband and I buy a home that we had been interested in for a long time. It had multiple offers that came and went, escrows that fell through, and Nick kept us very well informed about the constant changes. When the time was right, he helped us to move quickly and write a successful offer and guided us through a 30-day escrow. His expertise was invaluable!
Nick is a great agent to work with because he's calm yet effective. He has a wealth of knowledge about the area and good working relationships with the other agents as well, which makes the process much smoother. He listens and won't waste your time showing you properties that do not match your needs. He genuinely wants you to feel positive and informed about the process of buying your new home, and his goal is for you to be happy and satisfied with the end result. Many of his clients remain in contact with him, become friends and use him for multiple transactions; that is probably the best recommendation of all.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.0M in La Verne, CA.
Nick was extremely helpful and very patient with us as we looked for a home in the LaVerne, Glendora, San Dimas area. We were very selective and Nick was very good at only showing us properties that met our criteria. Finally we found one and he was extremely helpful in getting the deal done to the benefit of all parties. I highly recommend Nick to anyone looking to move.

Nick is a plethora of knowledge when it comes to real estate. He is a very good communicator and always keep you in the loop. He is also very proactive and on top of things. He knows how to accommodate your needs and doesn't waste your time showing you properties that don't make sense for you. He is a wonderful negotiator that always has your best interest in mind. We look forward to a long-term relationship with Nick for many years to come!
