I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, and my family and I have been here for almost 14 years. I have had the fortunate experience of traveling around the world to various countries and it has only helped me to understand that home is a special place. It is where we find our joy and live our lives, and dream about the future.

Excellent professional REALTOR. He took care of us every step or the way. He is kind, caring, listens, and communicates. I would never use anyone else. He is an amazing person.
The entire sales process took less time than expected primarily because Nick didn't waste any time. Nick quickly evaluated the market, the property and developed a plan within a matter of hours. Nick communicated via phone, text and email throughout the first week and weekend open house. We always knew where we stood in the sales process. Nick was invaluable in negotiating various aspects of the multiple offers. Nick also helped navigate around the pitfalls along the way - there are always pitfalls! We give Nick a 10 out of 10 stars.
This is our second time using Nick to help us with our real estate needs. Nick always does a great job. He helped us find a home and ensured our contract was completed same day. He has outstanding communication skills. He kept us informed every step of the way. He is the GOAT. We truly appreciate Nick and all of his help.
Nick was the best - he handled everything like the experienced professional he is. Nick took care of everything. He answered our questions before we could even ask them. He kept us informed with frequent progress reports and always indicated the next steps to be taken. I can't speak highly enough of Nick. It was an absolute a pleasure to work with him. He was always accessible - even, what I would consider to be, outside of normal work hours. If you need a great REALTOR®, I recommend that you call Nick - you will not be disappointed!

Nick was extremely patient with us!! It took us 2 years to find the right house. He remained patient and never gave up on us. Nick was always attentive and accessible no matter what time of day. He listened to our wants and needs. He had relevant comments and suggestions but knew when to step back and give us time, especially when we were so undecided as to where we wanted to live. Nick is very kind, patient, and hard working. He goes above and beyond the call of duty.We definitely will use Nick again and refer him to friends and family.
- Tom and Debbie Anderson
We are very happy with our experience with Nick and already recommended him to family and friends. Nick is the best in what he does. He kept us informed throughout the whole process, answered all our questions and we always felt he has our best interest in mind. We truly enjoyed working with him and he will be always our first choice for any real estate needs.
- Ibrahim Almas
He was attentive to every detail during the process and was very knowledgeable about every aspect of selling and buying. The contacts Nick knows were instrumental in helping us resolve inspection issues on both houses. Perhaps the thing that fully set Nick above and beyond anyone else is how responsive Nick was to our every question. He returned calls and texts immediately or sent a "standby" message to let us know he was on it. His customer service was amazing! We highly recommend Nick to anyone for an excellent real estate experience. Thank you Nick!!

We have worked with Nick on a previous property purchase. We will certainly work with Nick in the future. For us Nick is undoubtedly the best agent we’ve ever worked with and the only agent we plan to work with in the future. Nick is knowledgeable, strategic and a true professional. No one we know, in any business, is as accessible or communicates as well as Nick. He is outstanding.
- S. Helmstetler
Nick was a master of negotiations to help us get the house we wanted-- all while he was on vacation. From several states away Nick managed to close the home and get all inspections, contractors and a contract ready. Nick was attentive, engaging and accessible throughout the entire process. Nick answered all calls and emails, despite the early or late hours they were received. We always felt like a top priority and are indebted to his unbelievable work ethic and professionalism. There are not enough words to express the level of excellence that Nick has portrayed throughout our buying experience. Nick catered to all our needs and was proactive in the negotiation process. His integrity and competency is unmatched.
- Dan and Meagan Wildfong
We were referred to Nick from one of our high school friends and are so happy we got to connect with him. Nick is an amazing wonderful realtor. He truly cares for his clients and takes pride in his work.
This was our first time purchasing a home so we were very new to this process. Nick is very knowledgeable about the market and motivated us not to get discouraged. Working with Nick we were able to find our new
home in less than a month in this wild market. Nick is very patient and answered all of our questions. He responds quickly and lets you know that he is always here to help. We are completely satisfied with Nick and the services he provided for our family. This home buying journey was easy working with Nick. We will recommend Nick to our friends and family. We are very excited on creating new memories in our new home. Thank you again Nick for helping us find a home for our family. We truly appreciate it you.
- Cindy Williams
I have moved 14 times in my life. This included various countries and continents. The opportunity to work with Nick changed our perception of what "great" looks like. He was personal, professional, carrying and always but I mean always went the extra mile to ensure we understood the process and felt comfortable with what was happening next. This is your REALTOR for life! Thank you Nick. You made the purchase and sale effortless.
- The Wasilewskis
We were out of state buyers Nick went above and beyond to help locate, tour/video properties for us when we could not be in the state. Nick was extremely punctual with communication via text, email & phone. Nick also supplied us with local businesses for projects we wanted to complete on our new property prior to moving in. I would/will recommend Nick to others looking an agent to work with.
- Mike Mearse
I selected Nick because I felt that any agent who took the time to do cold canvassing was serious about his
job. Usually agents don't do this anymore. Nick was a "Gentleman and a Scholar" from beginning to end! He knows real estate from beginning to end and
gave me excellent advice and guidance----always with kindness and courtesy. My sale was closed in record time and with no "hiccups" due to Nick's vigilance and being a stickler on every detail. Nick was an angel because of my health, I was not able to do certain things on my own, but he stepped in and was on top of every detail.
- Priscilla Aikens
Nick was professional and took care of us and our every need. He made everything easy and we trusted him completely. I asked him to help us find a house for our daughter, he said he would and did that plus more for us. I would recommend Nick to everyone I know. I appreciate him so much and in my eyes he is a superhero.
- Yancy Freeman
Nick took his time with us and was so patient in all the houses we looked at. He really looked out for us and stood by us while we made tough choices on houses. We valued his opinions and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Nick knows this business inside and out! Thank you so much, Nick you are truly amazing and we are so blessed that we got the opportunity to work with you and that you helped us with our dream home!!!
