We were first-time home buyers and had zero experience with the process and what to expect. Nicole was so wonderful at coaching and supporting us along the way. She answered every question is such great detail to ensure we understood each step of the process and were making the right decision. We know we wouldn’t have been able to find our first dream home without her help. Prior to meeting Nicole, we were nervous about purchasing our first home since it is a very big decision. With Nicole’s help, it was very stress-free and exciting. If you are on the hunt to purchase your next home, you need to have Nicole Sweeny as your real estate agent!
Nicole is very dependable, knowledgeable, and responsive. We have bought and sold many homes over the past 27 years and Nicole is at the top of the list as one of the best real estate agents we have ever worked with. She is always on her game at every stage of the selling process – all the while setting our mind at ease. We highly recommend Nicole!
We can say without question that Nicole is the BEST Realtor we have ever worked with. Not only did she navigate a high anxiety home sale process on a normal basis, but she successfully sold our home for top dollar, within days of listing, in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. Should we list, should we wait, how will the market change, what is the pricing strategy, etc.? Nicole was very forthcoming and knowledgeable about the real estate landscape and helped guide us in our decisions of when to list and what the right price was. She was very comprehensive in setting expectations. Her decisions were always based on research and data to back up her guidance. Nicole is a great organizer and communicator - from reviewing contract details, setting up overall timelines, coordinating inspections, repair work, staging and cleaning to adjusting to changes in plan, handling various issues as they arose, and even facilitating the selling, donating and removing of unwanted items. She always followed up with us on how things were going during the sale process and even after the close of escrow. Nicole worked tirelessly on our behalf and made us feel like it was personal to her rather than just another business transaction or sale opportunity. It was truly a pleasure to work with Nicole as a real estate agent , and more importantly, as a genuinely wonderful person!
As we started thinking of who we would choose as a realtor to sell our Livermore home, we knew Nicole was the one - especially when we would see her frequently walking around the neighborhood with her monthly newsletters - always with a smile. Nicole visited our home to give us ideas and suggestions for putting our house on the market. As we began the process, Nicole was very diligent and detailed in walking us through each step to make sure our home was presented at its best. Nicole gave us the very personal touch of going through each set of documents in great detail. She never minded answering any questions we might have morning, day, or night. When Covid hit, Nicole made sure through texts and emails that we understood all the new rules for house inspections, staging, and showing our home. Nicole went above and beyond. She always took a personal interest in anything we talked about, and even took charge of items we wanted to sell or give away prior to our move. Nicole has not only has been our realtor, but has also become a very good and special friend who always has a bubbling smile. She has been an absolute delight to work with and we will truly miss her frequent texts and visits. Thank you Nicole for making the selling of our home and our move a very positive and memorable experience.
The process has changed a bit since we bought our first home over 10 years ago, especially with Covid protocols. We were both overwhelmed at many points in the process. Nicole was never overwhelmed or out of her element at any point and made sure that she was there for us the entire time. She is knowledgeable on every aspect of the home buying process, incredibly organized, and a pleasure to work with. I can’t imagine going through purchasing a home with anyone else. I recommend to anyone in the market - to reach out to Nicole if you want the best home buying experience possible.
She organized everything for the sale of my house and purchase of my new home. She coordinated inspections, cleaning, stager, helped to get rid of stuff and many other small requests. Nicole has many connections for all services. She walked me through every step of the way, helping me understand and feel comfortable throughout the whole buying and selling processes. Nicole is always willing to help, even after the close of escrow. I highly recommend Nicole.
She assisted my wife and I with selling our South Livermore home (over asking price!) and purchase of our new home in Granite Bay in 2020. I have worked with many real estate brokers and agents on several real estate transactions over the years and can say with confidence that Nicole is the best realtor I have ever used. Nicole has qualities that make her an extremely successful and effective agent, and has an amazing network of vendor partners who got our house ready for sale. I cannot say enough about her professionalism, work ethic and knowledge within the industry. She has high integrity and is very conscientious and tenacious, always keeping our best interests in mind. She gets to the point quickly yet professionally, always respecting our time. She did a great job of listening to our needs and helping us through the process. She does research to assist with assessing a fair market value of the property for the offer and then negotiates effectively with the opposing broker. She is extremely responsive to questions, often responding immediately to our late-night emails and being available to answer questions 7 days a week. She shows great attention to detail. I have the highest level of confidence in her. Both of our transactions went exceptionally smooth and we closed on time on each occasion.
