Nicole Sweeney - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Professional, knowledgeable, and responsive.

Simply put, Nicole is the BEST of the best! In the highly competitive, frustrating Bay Area real estate market, my husband and I went through many start/stop house-hunting cycles - and real estate agents - over the years. Two years ago, we casually popped into an open house where we met the friendly and authentic selling agent, Nicole Sweeney. As we talked to Nicole and explained our situation to her, we immediately felt a connection with her and knew she was the real estate agent we wanted to work with as we ramped up our house-hunting efforts again. We went through a few start/stop house-hunting cycles since meeting Nicole, and each time we were ready to look again, Nicole was ready to help us. I can’t even tell you how many houses we toured with Nicole, how many comps and how much market research she did for us, but it was a lot. I sometimes felt guilty how hard she worked for us and voiced my feelings, but Nicole was quick to reassure me that this was her job, and she loves what she does. We had Nicole showing us houses throughout the Tri-Valley, the specific area of her expertise, but then we decided to start looking out of the area. Nicole was with us. She did an incredible job gathering market data and building relationships with the local agents to help best position us as buyers. Ultimately, with Nicole’s expertise and guidance, our strongly written offer won against 21 other offers. We love our new home! We are so grateful to have met Nicole at that open house! She had the endurance and patience to stick with us through so many cities and house tours. Nicole is an amazing agent, advisor, counselor, and now, friend. My husband and I highly recommend her to anyone in need of an excellent real estate agent.

MICHAEL AND HEIDI H.

We fully recommend Nicole Sweeney for your real estate needs.

She sets the standard of real estate professionalism. Nicole is responsive, easy to work with and highly organized. In selling our home, she was in constant contact with us, putting our minds at ease, and managing our anxiety about the house selling process. She presented new and innovative ways to market our home. Nicole has now become not only a friend, but part of our family.

JOANNE AND RANDY K.

Attention to detail, great communication and strategic advice are what you can count on with Nicole!

Every step of the way, we felt Nicole was there to guide us professionally with the best suggestions and resources. Her friendly demeanor and check-ins made the whole selling process work smoothly and resulted in 7 bids and the quick sale of our home!

BYRON AND DINA G.

My wife and I worked with Nicole when we recently purchased our current home.

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.

PATRICK AND IRA B.

Nicole Sweeney was our agent during the selling journey of our home of 27 years.

Nicole expressed a genuine friendship and professional dedication to the success of the journey. We can't express our appreciation for her partnership in securing the right transaction and seeing it through to completion. Nicole was 125% dedicated to finding the right buyer at the right price in a difficult market. Nicole met with us regularly to inform us of market conditions and to discuss in detail the area comps. She is incredibly detailed and leaves no stone unturned. We can't thank her enough for driving this sale and transaction. We made a new friend, and we will miss her smile, her hugs, and her laugh. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, we highly recommend Nicole, as you will not find her equal. We guarantee your satisfaction.

JEFF AND JOAN H.

We had a great experience working with Nicole Sweeney.

We had a lot of anxiety about the home selling process, but Nicole put us at ease from the start. When she came to our home she explained the market for our area and had the data for us to review before making a final decision on pricing. She walked through our home and made recommendations on how to present our home. She listened and addressed our concern about timing and flexibility, as we were still waiting for our new home to be built. Nicole was in constant contact with us either by phone, text, or e-mail throughout the process. She sat down with us one on one to discuss which of the multiple and over-asking offers best suited our situation and negotiated for the best price. I really appreciated Nicole's organization and attention to detail. It made for a far less stressful experience than originally anticipated.

BRETT P.

In selling our Livermore home, we could not have asked for a better real estate agent to help us, especially during these precarious times.

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!

CHAD AND DEBBIE B.

Nicole is great!

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 process of buying and selling. Nicole is always willing to help, even after the process of selling and buying was complete. I highly recommend Nicole.

TRACY C.

This review will serve as my extremely high letter of recommendation for Real Estate Agent Nicole Sweeney.

She assisted my wife and I with selling our South Livermore home (over asking price!) and the purchase of our new home in Granite Bay. 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. She also has an amazing network of vendor partners who helped get 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.

JASON AND AIDA D.

In these precarious times, when there are often more realtors than homes for sale, having the best representation in marketing your home is a weighty decision.

We did not know Nicole Sweeney, but on the advice of friends who had recently had her sell their Livermore home, we interviewed Nicole. Nicole was impressive from the start with her ability to listen to our needs and concerns, advise with her expertise, and devise a marketing plan that met our schedule and culminated in us selling our home for the highest sale price in our neighborhood. She excelled at scheduling, marketing, problem solving, staging, negotiating the best offer and close, and communicating with us at every step. She was always available to address any of our concerns and worked diligently to keep us moving forward. Her consul was beyond measure and her professionalism a standard of excellence. We highly recommend having Nicole discuss how she can help you sell your home for the highest dollar and the least amount of stress.

JOSEPH AND PAMELA S.

As first-time home buyers and empty-nesters, I felt I needed someone that could be very personable and patient with my husband and I.

Nicole and I connected via Facebook, and her message to me was sincere and direct. Nicole put us at ease with her patience and understanding of our needs. She was VERY responsive and available to us at a moment's notice. She worked well with our lender to get the job done. She became a friend during the course of our journey to finding our dream home. We highly recommend Nicole!!

LISA AND DAVE L.

Where do we start?

That was the question we asked one another when we decided to sell our home and move after retirement. Well, we can tell you exactly where to start! Call Nicole Sweeney! We had a great deal going on at the time but wanted to “get the ball rolling” and still have time for the scheduled vacation in Hawaii, husband’s retirement, and last business convention. Wow! Were we crazy to take this on all at the same time? We thought so, but having the best realtor ever, Nicole Sweeney, everything fell into place rather seamlessly. If we had questions, she had answers. If she didn’t immediately have the answer, she found out and got back to us pronto. Quite frankly she either doesn’t sleep at night or she is a wizard. We can’t say enough about Nicole. She was there for us through every step of selling our home, from finding us the right people for small repairs needed, someone to stage the home, a place to donate furniture and our celebration at the SOLD sign, to name just a few of the hats she wore. She made everything work and we moved to our new home without a hitch. We wholeheartedly recommend Nicole to anyone in need of a realtor. She is knowledgeable, organized, supportive, patient, and hardworking. She will set your mind at ease so you can sleep at night.

ALANE AND JIM F.

Nicole handled the sale of my elderly parents’ home superbly.

We needed a fast sale and Nicole made everything happen seamlessly. She led us through every step and was always there to get things done! She handled the stager, contractor, termite inspector, carpet and house cleaners -to name a few, all the way through negotiating and finalizing the sale. I trust her completely. Nicole was our guardian angel at a difficult time for our family. She truly cares about her clients. We were so blessed to have her as our realtor. And, she has become a dear friend! She gets our highest of recommendations!

COLLEEN H.

Simply the best real estate agent we have ever worked with!

Throughout the entire process, Nicole went above and beyond the duties a real estate agent normally performs. Nicole is organized, attentive, proactive and beyond a pleasure to spend time with, all the while making you feel like you are her only client. Her attention to detail is amazing and with her network of contacts, we sold our home in record time, with multiple offers, for top dollar and with a quick closing date. If you are looking to work with one of the top agents in Livermore and to feel that you are not just a commission to the agent, Nicole is the agent to contact! Best decision we could have made!

MICHELLE AND KEVIN F.

We had a wonderful and completely positive experience working with Nicole to sell our home in Brentwood and buy a home in Livermore.

Nicole is top notch and knows her stuff. She is incredibly responsive and often had answers to our questions before we had even thought to ask. She was always easy to contact and responded promptly to all questions and concerns. She clearly explained each step of the process, made sure that we were fully informed on every action and decision, and she was extremely well prepared and knowledgeable in every aspect of both the buying and selling process. She had no problem at all with traveling and meeting us in all the various East Bay locations necessary to close our transactions. Other agents we encountered commented on how professional Nicole was, how easy she was to work with, and how hard she worked on our behalf. We without question believe that she had our best interests as her primary focus each step of the way. We give her our highest recommendations and will not hesitate to work with her again.

CINDI AND MARK G.

They say that buying a house is one of the most stressful endeavors anyone can undertake.

I'm not sure that our recent home buying adventure was the most stressful event in our lives, but it was certainly near the top of the list. We were dealing with a probate sale, something that takes everything you think you know about buying a home and turns it up-side-down and inside-out. It makes everything more complicated. And truthfully, the only thing that kept both my wife and I sane was the hard work of our realtor, Nicole Sweeney. Nicole helped us through every step of the process - from helping us to find the right lender, to overseeing the whole of the inspection process (often asking insightful questions I never would have thought to ask), through close of escrow and beyond. The complexities of the probate sale never seemed to phase her. If we did not understand what was going on, Nicole took the time to explain it to us, multiple times if necessary, until she was sure we understood. Anytime she had to tell us "I don't know.", it was always followed by, "But I will find out." And she always did. It didn't matter what time or day, Nicole was always available to answer questions. She once told us she was expecting an update after 10:00 pm, and I asked for a text when she received the news. Sure enough, 11:13pm, I got a text telling me everything I needed to put my mind at ease, and in all honesty, let me get a good night's sleep. I always felt bad calling on weekends, but Nicole never made us feel as though we were a nuisance or intruding upon her life. She made us feel like friends first and clients second. We put our trust in her and felt taken care of from beginning to end. We've been in touch several times since we moved in, and even though the realtor/client relationship has ended, we still get the same attention we've gotten since we first met. Were we to need a realtor again, we would call Nicole again in a heartbeat. We highly recommend her to any of our friends or family looking to buy or sell a home in the area.

MATTHEW AND BONNIE M.

To anyone looking to buy a home, I recommend the excellent professional services of Nicole Sweeney.

I met Nicole at an open home several years ago in Livermore and that memory has stayed with me through the years. She was informative, caring, and professional. I knew she was a special person and an outstanding agent. She kept in touch with me throughout the years, and when it came time to sell my home, without a doubt in my mind, I called Nicole! She did not disappoint! She is knowledgeable about the market and knows exactly what to do every step of the way. She is professional, pays attention to detail, responds quickly to calls and texts, and is outstanding at negotiating and closing “the deal”. I have recommended Nicole to my friends, and I would recommend her to you! I am one Happy Home Seller – Thanks to Nicole!

TINA P.

It is my pleasure to offer my unreserved recommendation for Nicole Sweeney.

I have had the pleasure of working with Nicole for more than 11 years now. I have seen her excel in this business, due to her incredible professionalism and dedication to her clients. During my 29-year career, I have worked with many agents. In my opinion, Nicole is definitely a top performing agent. She is never caught off guard by unforeseen circumstances. She is always prepared to tackle any challenge that may arise during our transactions together. Nicole’s abilities, adaptability, and dedication to her clients is what sets her apart from other agents.

SALLY MONTGOMERY, CHICAGO TITLE COMPANY – LIVERMORE, CA

We observed Nicole’s work when our neighbors sold their home in 2020.

We were impressed with how quickly she sold their home and the great price she secured for them. When we started thinking of selling, we contacted Nicole and again, we were immediately impressed. We quickly learned about her extraordinary work ethic and professionalism. She promptly started scheduling all our inspections and other meetings for us, attending each one. She is genuinely kind and has a great communication style; we found she cared about us not only as clients, but personally as well. She communicated with us during the entirety of our sale like we were her only clients, which of course, we weren’t! Nicole gave us wise and timely advice and really guided us every step of the way. We felt we were able to make well-informed decisions which led to our home being sold before officially going to market for a price we were very pleased with. Nicole is a very talented agent and just a joy to work with! We can’t recommend her highly enough.

CHRIS AND EMILY B.

Nicole is the greatest realtor you will find.

From our first meeting at a neighbor’s open house, we knew if we were ever going to sell, she would be our top pick. When the time came to sell our home, we called Nicole. She was excited to take us on as clients. At our first meeting, she came prepared with comps, a marketing strategy, and a calendar time frame. We were impressed. From that moment on, the process was smooth, painless and dare I say easy. We talked almost every other day about what needed to be done, the step-by-step plan, setting up pictures and inspections etc. Nicole made the process very easy and as stressless as possible. Nicole had an entire media strategy mapped out and started the moment we met. She had internet listings, ads, and other agents lined up. It was amazing how quick and thorough she was. Even before the house went on the market, she had agents lining up to look at it. I do not believe that would have been possible if it wasn’t for her hard work in advertising the house. We sold the house in record time for well above list price. It would not have been possible if it wasn’t for all of Nicole’s hard work. If we ever sell a home again, she would once again be our first and only pick. Honestly, you cannot go wrong with her. She is kind, an amazing person, and will fight for her clients. Now that the house is sold, she still checks up on us and I am proud to now call her a family friend.

STEVEN AND SAMANTHA A.

We found Nicole Sweeney to be the most amazing Realtor we had ever worked with!

She is fully acquainted with the local real estate market. She is very prompt and always answers quickly, even during off business hours. She has outstanding interpersonal skills and is a very good listener. She provided expert advice before, during and after our sale. She has a very outgoing personality and has great negotiating skills. She is very diligent and hardworking and took care of scheduling everything. She came over to our house to personally assist us with numerous tasks throughout all phases of selling the house and then moving thereafter! We have sold several properties in the past and Nicole was by far the most responsive, conscientious, and friendly Realtor we have ever met!

CORNELIUS AND TANYA J.

I am very glad I decided to go with Nicole!

She is very sweet and walked through every step with me in buying my first home. She also helped in providing contacts for the best painter, cleaners services and also managed them till completion. She was not pushy and gave her honest opinions about what she thought about every property I considered. She had a lot of knowledge about each neighborhood and understood the market very well. She was very easy to reach at any time of the day or night. If I decide to buy or sell in the future, I will definitely go with her again. Thank you, Nicole!

DEEPAN C.

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Nicole on the sale of our home this past summer.

We've had some disappointing experiences with a couple realtors in the past, so we were extra vigilant when interviewing Nicole to determine she was the right person for the job. After hearing her approach to preparing the property for sale, marketing the listing, and finally negotiating the deal, we had a very good feeling about Nicole. She far surpassed our expectations. Nicole has a great attitude, is incredibly responsive and is an overall pleasure to work with. Knowing the stress that comes with selling a home, she went above and beyond to try to take as much off our plate as she could...even posting and selling lots of our personal items on Facebook Marketplace and Next Door for us. The photographer she chose was top notch and her stagers hit the ball out of the park as well. We followed her direction from start to finish and it paid off. We sold our home for almost 13% over asking, the highest price ever paid for our model in our neighborhood (Vinsanto/Livermore). Nicole is a knowledgeable, tenacious realtor with exceptional organizational and people skills. Best of all, she has great integrity, which is extremely important to us. We were very fortunate to have Nicole quarterback our team and would highly recommend her to buyers and sellers in the East Bay/Tri-Valley area.

JACKSON AND THERESA R.

Nicole is the Swiss army knife of Realtors.

She has an array of skills that ensure successful negotiations both with a homeowner, home buyer, and with contractors for planned renovations. Nicole is also very personable and able to surmount any tensions in the would-be homeowner caused by the process of home buying. Post purchase, Nicole remains interested and in touch with the buyer and continues to provide excellent referrals and advice. I have purchased many homes in my life, with many different Realtors, and Nicole remains at the top of the list for those I would recommend to friends and family. She also works well with her mortgage broker colleagues making for a seamless transition from buyer to owner. If you would prefer an accomplished professional representing you in the real estate world, you will surely be satisfied with Nicole Sweeney.

KELLEY K.

We recently bought our very first home with Nicole.

She was able to find us a house with great potential in the perfect location, something I thought was impossible. Not only were we able to get our dream house, but the process was made easy with Nicole, and we will always be appreciative of all the help she provided. From start to finish, we have had a great experience and would recommend her to anyone, especially if they are new to the market. There is no other realtor for us in the future!

FREDRIK AND ANJA I.

Nicole is one amazing Realtor!

We were first time home buyers and had zero experience with the process of home buying and what to expect. Nicole was so wonderful at coaching and supporting us along the way and answered every question in such great detail to ensure we understood every 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 very nervous about purchasing our first home, but with her help it was very stress-free and exciting. If you are on the hunt to purchase your next home, you need to have Nicole Sweeney as your real estate agent! Thank you so much Nicole!!!

JACKLIN AND BRANDON M.

Selling a house is never easy, but working with Nicole made it fun.

She is always pleasant, and we felt that she really cared about our home and about us. She was always available throughout the process, and she went above and beyond what most agents would do. Nicole also had a list of fantastic resources for other services. If you are looking for a fun, honest, hardworking agent, give Nicole a call !!!

MARK AND RANDI K.

From the very first phone conversation with Nicole, I felt comfortable and at ease as I could sense her sincere interest in working with me to sell my home.

I feel as though the stars aligned and sent me this wonderful gift. Nicole patiently and specifically walked me through each phase of prepping and selling. She is professional, knowledgeable, helpful, communicative, detail-oriented, and exceptional at her craft. Additionally, she is kind and takes great care in considering her clients’ needs and is dedicated to finding a solution. Nicole is truly committed to her philosophy of “teamwork”. I cannot say enough glowing comments about Nicole. She is passionate about what she does, and this is evident in her efforts from start to finish.

TERRI M.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience working with Nicole Sweeney during the sale of our home.

Nicole represented everything we wanted in a real estate agent. She was professional, personable, extremely organized, and above all else, responsive to our needs. She fully explained the process and what her approach would be and welcomed the input we had. Nicole remained in constant communication with us throughout the entire process and truly had our best interest in mind. Under Nicole's guidance, we received multiple offers over the asking price and the property sold within days of being listed. We strongly recommend Nicole Sweeney for all your real estate needs. She was a delight to work with!

TED AND LU ANN H.

It has been quite a while since I've been in the real estate market, so I was anxious and unsure about the process.

I feel very fortunate that I got to work with Nicole. Working with her was a pleasure. She's the consummate professional. I found Nicole to be extremely organized, focused, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and exceptional with follow-up. I especially appreciated her communication. She kept me updated via face-to-face meetings, phone, text, or email at every step in the process and informed and reminded me of what to expect next. I will enthusiastically recommend Nicole every chance I get. I moved into my new home a week ago and couldn't be happier.

RICK M.

I was very lucky to have Nicole Sweeney as my realtor in buying my second home.

I would highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell a property. I had gone through two realtors in selling my first home, so I had previous experience with other real estate agents. Because I was not actively involved in the purchase of my first home, in some ways, this was really the first time I was purchasing a home. Nicole was so very supportive and patient with me from the beginning to the end of my journey. This is definitely one of her biggest strengths. She was able to explain everything about the process to me that was confusing and complicated. Her care and patience were endless, as she had to help me understand and make decisions. I found her responsive, accessible, and flexible. She worked around my busy schedule with a very personable and professional attitude. While interacting with other realtors, I trusted her judgment and her ability to seek out information from the seller's agent. She was able to respond quickly to my needs even though I kept changing my mind on what I wanted in a home. Once I found a house that I wanted to make an offer on, she worked hard and rapidly with me to look over the property together, to contact the seller's agent, and to decide with me the next step. She was very strategic in helping me make an offer that was competitive in the market and that I was comfortable with. Not surprisingly, the buyer accepted my offer without a counter, and we were able to enter into a contract right away with a quick 21-day close. I credit Nicole with helping me buy my dream house with less than 3 weeks of house hunting - and on my first offer. Her empathy and sensitivity to my anxiety as a first homebuyer helped me get through this process. I trust her and felt that she had my best interest in mind. Most definitely, she will be who I call when I need to sell or buy a property.

SUSAN S.

I find myself uniquely qualified to offer this recommendation, as I have had the privilege of working with Nicole in various capacities and on various types of transactions for the past 11 years.

Whether buying or selling, it is essential to partner with a seasoned and experienced real estate agent. I have witnessed firsthand, Nicole’s dedication, preparation, knowledge, and willingness to successfully close any transaction. I work with many real estate agents. I can say with utmost confidence that Nicole is one of the most knowledgeable, diversely skilled, prompt, and proactive real estate agents I have encountered. I highly recommend Nicole to any buyer, first-time home buyer, seller, or investor for any type of transaction.

ELENA VELARDE, WFT TITLE COMPANY – PLEASANTON, CA

In the middle of COVID, we sold our house and began looking for our next home.

Then we got pregnant with #2 and suddenly our house hunting efforts had a very real deadline. At the same time, the Bay Area real estate market went completely insane, but fortunately we met Nicole at the very first house we decided to stop by to see. It was her listing and we found her to be knowledgeable, genuine and enthusiastic about her work. With her guidance, we narrowed down what we wanted and where, and she stayed laser focused the next couple months in helping us find our next home before the baby was due. We stayed in touch almost every day, and it was clear that Nicole had her finger on the pulse of the market. Thanks to Nicole’s endless energy, amazing knowledge, and ability to navigate the market, we got our dream home in a highly competitive market, against a multitude of other offers. We are so grateful to Nicole for her dedication in helping us find our new home, her clear knowledge of everything about the real estate business, her integrity and character, and the enduring friendship born out of going to battle in the Bay Area real estate market together! There is absolutely no one else we would have rather worked with during the most stressful of house hunting times. We wholeheartedly recommend her!

ANDY C./CYNTHIA H.

You can always find a good realtor, but you know you have found a GREAT one when you have worked with Nicole Sweeney.

She is a true, detailed professional who takes an authentic, personal approach to not only the business aspect, but to you as well. We have dealt with many property sales/purchases in the Livermore area, but never once did a real estate agent ask, “What can I do for YOU to ease your concerns or schedule?” Nicole has developed an incredible toolbox of professionals and tradesman that make selling/purchasing your home almost “effortless”. When it comes to one of the most important life decisions a person can make, don’t hesitate a moment - contact Nicole Sweeney!

MITCH AND ERIKA I.

Nicole is amazing!

When we decided to sell our house, we were feeling overwhelmed with some work we needed to have done and a bit of pressure to sell by the end of 2021. When we met with Nicole she was very honest about how she works with clients, focusing on communication and the role she can play dealing directly with vendors as needed. Nicole has a wealth of knowledge and many wonderful and trustworthy vendors she was able to secure for our projects. She helped facilitate the inspections, work orders, contracts, payments, and everything in between. Everything was completed timely and professionally, and she helped us meet our deadline for listing our home. The best part...with Nicole's expertise we were able to get an offer significantly over asking within 3 days of listing! The buyers were well- qualified, and the escrow and sale closed without any problems at all. And now she's even helping us find a rental home in town until we can decide what to do in the next chapter of our lives. We highly recommend Nicole Sweeney as a realtor! Whether you are a buyer or seller she is a wonderful communicator, very knowledgeable and she has incredible integrity. You can't go wrong with Nicole!

BILL AND JULIANA S.

We interviewed multiple agents when we were preparing to sell our house and felt an immediate rapport with Nicole.

She was wonderful; we couldn't have found anyone who would have worked harder on our behalf. Nicole kept us informed about what was coming up in the process and was always willing to take time to answer any questions or concerns that we had. When she met with us, we never felt rushed. She helped us with whatever we needed, stepping in with her knowledge and experience. She has put together a team of individuals (painters, inspectors, stagers, repair people, office personnel, and many more) whose passion for their craft shines through in the end. She scheduled everything for us based on when we were available, and always followed up afterward. As for marketing the house, Nicole knew what needed to be done to make our house look its best, always keeping our pocketbook and preferences in mind. She knows the market well and is strategic in her approach to determining the correct price point. Nicole is always upbeat, organized, and is a true professional. She had our complete trust and confidence. We highly recommend her.

MARIA W.

We have known Nicole for many years.

When we first decided to sell our home, we knew we weren’t going to use a personal friend as our realtor. As we watched other homes in town being marketed, Nicole’s marketing truly stood out. She had changed our minds without ever knowing our thoughts. Her attention to detail from the beginning of the process to the end is phenomenal. She is very organized, proactive, responsive and is a wonderful communicator. She is a true professional! You cannot go wrong with Nicole as your realtor.

KEITH AND JACKIE T.

Forget the rest, Nicole’s THE BEST!

We knew from our initial consultation with Nicole that we had the right agent to sell our home. After interviewing several Realtors, hearing the results she achieved for two other friends of ours, and checking out her online reputation, we scheduled a consultation. We were impressed by her marketing savvy and organizational skills. On her advice, we put a little extra work in by adding new carpeting, staging the home, and paying for inspections up front. It made such a difference and paid off in the end. Nicole laid out a well thought out winning strategy for us. Within a few days, we had three offers to choose from and accepted one well over our asking price with no contingencies. Throughout the closing Nicole was proactive in clearly communicating and coordinating with her escrow team at WFG Title (who also did a fantastic job btw). If you are looking for that one special agent that will bring top dollar, is organized and ahead of the game at every step of the way, Nicole is your agent. Her slogan "always there for you" is absolutely true!

TED L.

It took me a while to collect words to write about our experience with Nicole.

In our opinion, 5-star review may not be sufficient. Why? We bought and sold three houses in the Bay Area and one in another state. During the course of these complicated transactions, we dealt with several agents and brokers - which puts us in a good position to make a decent comparative analysis. Well, without going into all the details, we can claim that Nicole will be our agent in any future real estate deals. She is surely top notch, knowledgeable, honest, dedicated, and caring. There was not a single moment during the process of the sale of our home when Nicole did not have everything under control. She is the definition of proactive. We received multiple offers, sold over list price, and closed in a timely fashion. And last but not least, our 4-year-old son loved her! Thanks for your dedication Nicole.

ZARYAB AND SAIRA M.

Nicole represented me during the sale of my home.

Throughout the process, Nicole was the epitome of integrity and professionalism. She advised, discussed, and executed every detail of my sale with a level of focus and diligence that I have never experienced before. Her standards set a very high bar. No detail was ever missed—from staging, to all of the necessary inspections and repairs, including painting. She provided a comprehensive network of extremely reliable and competent workers who executed all repairs in a superior and timely manner. I believe every suggestion she made resulted in the speedy and worry-free sale of my home. I received multiple offers and sold for well-over list price. Nicole was also instrumental in advising me on the purchase of my new home even though it was in a distant location and her contractual obligation to me was complete. I can say with absolute certainty that anyone who works with Nicole will only benefit from her years of experience, dedication to her clients and generosity of her time.

Choosing Nicole to help us find the perfect home after our home was lost in the 2018 Camp Fire was one of the best choices we’ve ever made.

She felt like nothing less than family. She was dependable and dedicated. She knew exactly what to look for and ask during inspections and throughout the process to make sure nothing was missed. Her follow- up, check-ins and suggestions made this process as smooth as possible. When we first saw our home, I remember telling her, “ We want this house! PLEASE make SURE we get it!” I saw her game face. I had confidence in her that she would make it happen and she did! She genuinely cared about our family, and we felt that the entire time. She followed every Covid protocol and made sure everyone was comfortable. If you are looking for someone who is reliable, confident, effective, trustworthy, and sincere, Nicole is your Realtor. We are forever grateful for what she did to help our family.

DANIEL AND CHAR B.

We have known Nicole Sweeney and her husband for many years.

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. It is hard to believe that it has been over a year since we asked Nicole to be our agent to sell our Livermore home in the spring. Nicole visited our home to give us ideas and suggestions for putting our house on the market the following April. As we began the process, Nicole was very diligent and detailed in walking us through each step to make sure our home was very desirable when we put it on the market. 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. Of course, in early March COVID-19 hit which made things more difficult for the real estate market. However, Nicole made sure through phone calls, texts, and emails that we understood all the new rules for doing house inspections, staging, and showing our home. Nicole went above and beyond by always taking 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 not only has been our realtor but also has 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.

During the process of selling my home (via another realtor - not my choice!

) and deciding whether to buy or rent a new home on my own, Nicole was such a great source of reference and support to me. She was always very responsive to my questions, and even more so, proactive in contacting me to see if everything was alright with my process and if she could help in any way. In the end, I decided to rent. This is important to note because Nicole helped me and made sure I had good information to make my decisions WITHOUT ANY PAYOUT in the end. This says a lot about her character. I will most definitely call on Nicole in the future should I decide to purchase a home.

We have worked with many realtors, over the years, buying and selling primary and rental properties and can say without question that Nicole is the BEST Realtor that 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 regarding when to list and for what price She was very comprehensive in setting expectations. Her decisions were always based on research and data to back up her guidance. She is also a great organizer and communicator - from reviewing contract details, to setting up timelines, coordinating inspections, repair work, staging and cleaning, adjusting to changes in plan, handling scheduling and other issues, to facilitating selling, donating, and removing unwanted items and always following 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 versus 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 first-time home buyers, my husband and I were both excited and nervous about the process.

Nicole helped us every step of the way by sharing knowledge, setting expectations, communicating clearly and quickly, and giving us great advice based on her experience! She even stepped in at a moment of overwhelm and delivered the perfect pep talk to keep us going - and the next offer we put in was the winner! Thank you Nicole for understanding our needs and opinions during an emotional process. I highly recommend Nicole to anyone buying a home, and first-time home buyers in particular!!

I had the pleasure of working with Nicole Sweeney on the recent sale of my South Livermore home.

I can highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking to sell their home. She knows the area, the market, and the process. Nicole is also very personable with an engaging personality. Additionally, she is very professional with attention to detail in all aspects of the process. Nicole’s good communication kept the stress of selling my home to a minimum. Her pool of dependable resources from contractors to painters and window washers kept inspections and preparation to sell efficient. Her all- hands-on deck approach to checking off “the to-do list” was enormously helpful as well. Nicole “says what she does” and “does what she says”!
