Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $875K in Cambrian Park, San Jose, CA.
Working with Nicki and her team was great! They always demonstrated exemplary knowledge, professionalism, and integrity. Nicki paid careful attention to our goals and needs, from 'day one', and her guidance was essential thereafter. With her advice and recommendations we always felt well-prepared and informed at each step of the selling process, and the final results confirmed as much.... Simply put, from here forward, Nicki Banucci is the only agent I would work with when selling or buying in the Bay Area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.0M in Ponderosa, Sunnyvale, CA.
Nicki was an excellent agent. Because of her preparation work, we got an offer before the open house. During the open house, our house attracted more than 100 individual visits. Her instruction on what needed to be fixed or upgraded was very clear. The remake of the house was effective. She pointed out things that we missed. She priced the house at the right point. This is exactly the type of agent that you want to have for selling a home. In less than a month, our house was on the market. And literally, two days later, we got our first offer.

Nicki was responsive, professional, and always having your best interest in mind. I would highly recommend Nicki as your next real estate agent. She really stood out.

Thank you Zunhang! You and Ali were fantastic to work with. I greatly appreciate sellers like you that put your trust in my judgment and expertise. Because of that your house was shown in it's best light and we could receive $82K over asking price. Way to go!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $550K in Blossom Valley, San Jose, CA.
Nicki was awesome. She helped us secure our first home in this very difficult real estate environment. By the time we met Nicki we were at our wits' end. We constantly faced multiple offer situations, having already placed a number of our own offers at and above asking price. We were still beat out by all cash offers. Something had to change and then we met NIcki. From the start NIcki was upfront and straighforward about our possibilities. She used a balanced approach of technology and groundwork to narrow and target our search. This saved us a lot of time. We were thrilled when our first bid was accepted- but that was just the beginning. She guided us through the rest of the process answering all of our questions and addressing our first time buyer concerns. When it came time to negotiate she did great. Nicki went to bat for us again and again and knocked it out of the park. Nicki is a caring professional who you'd be lucky to have on your side. We are glad we placed our trust in her and wholeheartedly recommend her to be your buyers agent. Thanks Nicki- we love our new home!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $825K in Almaden Valley, San Jose, CA.
Nicki is awesome. She just helped me to sell a property and it went well. It was the first time selling for me, and there was a lot to do. Much more than I could handle from so far away. She went above and beyond handling the scheduling of repairs and inspections along with keeping up with the info to me. It was a pleasure to work with her, place sold super quick. 5 star all the way for me. -J

Thank you Jason! You and Andrew kicked butt to get the duplex looking it's best. Through our team effort I'm very excited about what we were able to accomplish. It's never easy to sell a family home but you handled it so well. I love having sellers like you! Thank you for your support and trust.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $550K in Downtown, San Jose, CA.
Nicki really made it happen for us. She's very knowledgeable about the housing market and really goes the extra mile for her clients. She's the consummate sales person AND partner - which is what you want when you are selling and/or buying. Nicki is great at opening a buyers eyes to what's really going on and guides you all through the crazy process. We had trouble selling our home last July and so we took it off the market for a while. Nicki kept in touch with us and sent us listings consistently. Then when the time was right, she suggested we put our house on the market. In the span of two months (I kid you not), we had sold our home and purchased another and closed them both on the same day! It was a whirlwind but we knew we were in good hands.

We absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE our new home! We are still pinching ourselves because we can't believe it's ours. If you want the job done and done right...Nicki's your gal.

Thank you Nicki!!

Sold a home in 2013.
We made the very stressful decision to sell our home in June, and even though it's a very beautiful house and could "sell itself", the stress came from the simple question of how do we maximize value? Well, we couldn't be happier with the attention, professionalism, knowledge and work that Nicki and her partner put into selling our home. She had a very organized plan from the very beginning, which gave us the peace of mind we needed. The open house was an incredible success, which lead to receiving eight offers above asking, and multiple offers well above my "hope for" price. There was no way we could have received those offers without her.

Nicki truly made us feel special from the first time we met her, helped us get through all the tedious paperwork, meeting various inspectors, and all the way through the final closing, which by the way, was less than three weeks after the open house. There is no question of giving her the highest recommendation possible, to family, friends, and any one else.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Fairgrounds, San Jose, CA.
I am a very detailed person who loves to plan far in advance. I contacted Nicki back in January - more than a year before we planned to even start looking for a home. I felt it was important to have an agent to help with the early planning, especially for someone like me who needs every little thing accounted for. Nicki didn't even hesitate to invite us to her office for a meeting. Nicki was friendly and energetic and we knew right away she was the one we wanted to work with. Nicki and I stayed in contact for several months until I realized I couldn't make everything fall into a little box and needed to buy now. We were pre-approved 9/13, started looking 9/14, and closed on our new home on 10/11. It was such a pleasure to work with Nicki. Her expertise, responsiveness, and diligence made the process fast and effortless. I am so grateful to have met Nicki and plan to work with her on all future real estate transactions.

Highly recommended!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $650K in Cambrian Park, San Jose, CA.
I found Nicki on Yelp and emailed her after reading the rave reviews. She called within maybe 15 minutes and we met with her the following evening. She was on time, well prepared and we signed with her then and there. She was easy to communicate with and quick to reply to all of questions and issues. Within 3 weeks she held an open house and we got an offer the following Wednesday, which we accepted. Selling your home of 19 years is not easy, but Nicki helped make it as painless as possible! I highly recommend her and Intero to anyone looking for a professional, knowledgeable and attentive agent........

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $700K in Almaden Valley, San Jose, CA.
Nicki Banucci was recommended to me by a well-respected co-worker, so I gave her a call. She explained to me her strategy of selling a home and provided a more complete analysis of what I could expect to pay and receive than any other realtor provided (out of 5 realtors). What finally decided things for me was that I could see on line that many, many of her clients were happy with her work and still big fans of hers by the time their transactions were OVER. (EVERYBODY’S a superstar in the beginning, but the trick is to remain so by the end of the transaction. Nicki did.)

Nicki and I got busy, and collaborated to find the right mix of cost containment vs. highlighting the home’s best features. She had great contacts for staging and update work, and was fully supportive whether I hired one of her resources or did some of it myself to save some money.

Once the house was ready, Nicki prepared beautiful, professional flyers; she personally advertised within our own complex and in surrounding neighborhoods and got full exposure by effective internet advertising, including a filmed, talking walkthrough of the home. Nicki priced the home strategically in order to drive in multiple offers, so we had options and were able to make the best choice.

Nicki and I were in constant communication throughout this transaction. She was there to oversee the work of vendors when necessary, swept and tweaked things in the house and garden herself on occasion, made sure during the open house that cookie crumbs and drinks didn’t get scattered everywhere and reported how the home was being received after each of the 2 open house days. She had as much energy as I did about making this a successful sale with a minimum of stress. And, phew----after a lot of work to get it all to fall into place….there’s no better ending than success! The home sold within a week for $40,000 over our asking price, to homeowners who will love the community here, so a real win for all. I couldn’t have asked for a better result and a more pleasant process than the great energy and synergy that I found working with Nicki. I wholeheartedly recommend her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Gilroy, CA.
Nicki is AWESOME!!! If you are looking for help buying or selling a home, Nicki Banucci gets the job done. We just closed on a beautiful home in Gilroy with Nicki's help. We had to contend with multiple offers and yet our offer was accepted and we closed in a short 3 weeks. One of the things you will learn very quickly about Nicki is she is extremely thorough and in control every step of the home buying process.

As first time home buyers, a key concern of my wife and myself was knowing what to look for in assessing a house. Nicki gave us her honest feedback on all the houses we saw together. It was as if she was buying the house for herself - very refreshing to be able to work with such a professional.

I will recommend Nicki to anyone needing the help of a great realtor in a heartbeat.
