Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Crescent City, CA.
I do not live in the area, Stuart and I never met face to face.
The home belonged to my Grandmother who had just recently moved. I was called upon by our family to assist in the selling of her home. I contacted multiple agents to represent us, but chose Stuart to help guide us through this process. Stuart and the agency he works for seemed to have the most integrity out of those I contacted. Stuart did an excellent job of setting up the listing of the home on the MLS sites.
Stuart was always available to talk to and to answer all of my questions. I did not have to chase him down. Stuart was not only fair and honest with the buyer, but also kept our family in mind to protect us as well. We appreciated everything he did for us.
The home sold relatively quickly and this allowed my Grandmother to be able to put this chapter behind her.

There is so much to know when buying a home for the first time; though it is exciting, it can be very overwhelming. Stuart helped me understand the process step by step. He took time when viewing houses to point out details about the construction and/or repairs to anticipate upon purchase if any were needed. He gave me guidance regarding home values, desirable neighborhoods, and types of home loans. When I bought my home, I felt like I was making a very informed decision because he educated me along the way!
This is the second home I have purchased with Stuart, as well as have my current home listed with him. Stuart goes beyond the duties of a Realtor. He is trustworthy and honest, looking out for the best interest of his clients. I would highly recommend Stuart!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Stuart from Investment Realty.
He was extremely knowledgable about every aspect of buying a new home.
He really listened to our goals and anticipated our every need, which led to his finding a home that is a perfect fit for us.
We are so grateful Stuart Nichols was recommended, by a friend, when we needed to find a new home.

Stuart Nichols is a professional; attentive to detail, reliable, trustworthy and hardworking real estate agent. He is available to answer any questions. Our move to California went smoothly and we are happy with our new property.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Crescent City, CA.
We first met with Stuart approximately 2 years ago to start looking for a home to purchase. Stuart quickly figured out what we were looking for & showed us many homes within our budget & liking, some we put offers on, some we passed on. We learned a lot about purchasing a home & with being first time home buyers we felt very comfortable with Stuart and his advice. He is very knowledgable with short sales, foreclosures & regular purchases (we experienced all of these when looking for our home). What my husband and I appreciated most when working with Stuart was that he always kept us informed on everything. As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and were very anxious to know what's going on with offers we put in, and Stuart always seemed to email us with an update before we could even ask. He is very attuned to his clients. It's great. I highly recommend Stuart to anyone looking to use a realtor to find their next home. If you want it to be a stress free process, Stuart is your guy. We will be using him again when we are ready to find our next home.
Stewart helped me acquire a custom built house for well below market value. This house was a banked owned REO, which can be a very difficult and lengthy purchase, requiring extra paperwork and has tricky legal concerns. On top of that, I used a VA loan, which adds further restrictions to the purchase, making it even more difficult to accomplish. This house took close to six months to complete due to the nature of REO, VA loan, and dealing with the owner (bank). A seasoned real estate agent is necessary for this type of deal. Stewart, showed great patience, worked hard for me, he never showed any doubt, and he never complained about anything. He was always was eager to help me through the process with a smile on his face and a good attitude. There is no way I could have done this with out him.
Just give him a call and tell him what you are looking for. I am sure he will pick up the phone. He always did for me.

Stuart NIchols was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in our dealings with him. I had complete confidence in his ability from the beginning of our transaction. He was honest and sincere and kind in every way. We are very thankful for his services. Janet and Bill Heueisen
Stuart dotted every i and crossed every t, put my interests ahead of his own commission, and was the most honest agent I have ever worked with, out of many. Stuart is the best in the county...A pro who is so superior to a friend with a real estate license. All business with no games..Great with contracts, law and liability. I will use him again.

Got a contractors house and a jaw dropping price right next to Jed Smith State Park. Stuart is a master negotiator/honest/truthful/full of integrity. Most realtors are like cars sales men but not Stuart. He has your best interests at heart even when they will not make him the most amount of money. He is very helpful and friendly with a sense of humor which makes the home buying process that much more easier. Highly recommended if you want a realtor that will look out for your interests first.
