Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Nevada City, CA.
I would highly recommend Mimi Simmons & Team ERA Cornerstone Realty to anyone selling or buying a home. Her knowledge of the Nevada County Real Estate market makes her an outstanding choice.
My husband recently passed away so I needed to sell my home and move closer to my family in the Bay Area. I contacted Mimi Simmons who was highly recommended by a friend to sell my home.
She presented a comprehensive packet of information about her and her team.
I was impressed with her credentials. She paid attention to my needs and used her knowledge of the Real Estate Market to present a good marketing plan. I was able to sell my home in short period of time and was very happy with the selling price.
My husband and I had sold several homes so I recognized what a true professional Mimi & her team were during the process of selling my home. From start to finish the whole transaction went very smoothly. They were very helpful and through making sure everything was done to my satisfaction. They made what was a stressful time for me very easy. I couldn’t be happier and can’t say enough about my experience working with Mimi.
Thank you, Mimi & Team!!!!

My mother had recently passed away in Nevada City leaving the family her home to sale. Not being from the area I logged onto Zillow.com. I started the process by reading the reviews of the local agents. Based on the reviews I had come across three agents that I wanted to meet in person. One of the agents was Mimi Simmons ERA Cornerstone. Mimi was on time, very professional, suggested a local marketing plan on how to sale the home, and provided all the necessary local statistics of the area. It is one skill to be an agent to buy a home, however it takes a lot of skill and coaching from an agent to sell a home.
Mimi sold my family on the agent team concept. Everything Mimi said she would do she did. Mimi returned calls right away, answered every question, followed up on any open agenda items.
Because Mimi and her team were so prepared we ended up selling the home on the first weekend, three offers and the best news 20k over the asking price. Mimi and her team were with us all the way through the close at title. Mimi even fought for us when the buyer requested a credit at the close of escrow for a faulty electrical panel. Mimi had her electrician check out the situation to find out that the panel was not in need of repair saving the family on a requested credit.
Selling a home is stressful but selling a home that was your mother’s home and not being from the area can be really stressful. I never felt any stress working with Mimi or her colleagues. It turned out to be a wonderful experience.If I were to buy or sell a home in Nevada City I would choose Mimi

Poor attention to details, slow to respond to questions, did not make much effort to support seller's position in contract negotiations Similar comments from another random customer (buyer) with whom I met. Also similar poor feedback from local employee with whom I interacted. Be very prepared to be your own advocate and "bird dog" the details. The transaction coordinator was no better in transaction details or management.
Response from Mimi on 02/28/2013
Every transaction has its own dynamic. The full cooperation, of all parties involved, in these transactions, result in successful closings. Aspects of this particular transaction were out of the agent's control, however I took the extra steps for my client, not only paying for his closing costs, I paid for a hotel room after close of escrow. My good reputation is second only to my highest goal of taking care of my clients.

Mimi was the most caring and professional person from start to finish when I bought my home in Nevada City. She and her staff are extreamly professional and responsive and went way above and beyond what i would have expected from a real estate agent. I would highly recommend for all your real estate needs.

It is with great enthusiasm that we write this recommendation for Mimi Simmons and her entire team. A team of enthusiastic, personable efficient professionals that together makes an unbeatable Real Estate team in this ever-changing market.
We first contacted Mimi to begin the process of researching selling our home in late spring 2011. She met with us promptly and presented us with a professional market analysis of our home. At our first meeting a list was made, our very own “Mimi List”, with recommended improvements or fixes that we should complete to improve the marketability of our home. Needless to say we quickly listed our home with her team.
Within two short months our home was under contact for purchase. We proceeded into this portion of the path nervous as most would be. Our calls with her office increased to step us through the procedures. Each and every time we felt overwhelmed at all a member of the team would step in to help above and beyond the normal.
Our family went into the path of selling our family home unsure of how it would proceed. Mimi and her entire team made us feel as though we were all in this phase together and that they were always there to guide us. It is with great pleasure that we recommend Mimi Simmons and her team for your next real estate transaction.

Mimi helped us find our home in 2001. She was very helpful, keying on our reactions to homes she showed us. From this she learned more about what we wanted than we had actually told her. She was relentess in pursuing a "deal" with the seller, who was having issues with his own realtor. I would highly recommend (and have done so) Mimi to others, both buyers and sellers.
