NICOLE’S TESTIMONIALS
  • My husband and I were immediately impressed with Nicole's tenaciousness. Once she had an idea about what we wanted she presented us with options whenever something came up that fit our criteria. When the time came to place an offer she did due diligence by investigating anything she could discover to put us in the best possible position. We weren't left wondering what the next step was since she explained everything and coached us through the process. We had purchased and sold homes before, but Marin County's a bit different. :-) In addition to all of her business-savvy, Nicole's got heart. She took time to care about our family and discuss our concerns and questions. Nicole's obviously passionate about the Bay Area and helping people find the best place to call home. We highly recommend working with Nicole!

  • We were very lucky to have found Nicole. She helped us purchase our current home which was a short sale and sell our other home as well. She was patient, professional and she even helped us with getting our new home move in ready. Nicole became a part of our family for several months and to this day we still stay in contact. Nicole Is awesome!

  • Nicole Burton and Yvonne Young are an all star team! Between the two of them, they were always available and made us feel like we were their top priority. We used them in the sale of our Bel Marin Keys (BMK) home, but they went out of their way to help us with whatever we needed in purchasing our new home out of state as well. Being residents of BMK themselves, Nicole and Yvonne were very knowledgeable about the area and helped us to price our house correctly. Our house was under contract in about 2 weeks!! I would recommend this team over and over again!

  • To quote Glengarry Glen Ross, "coffee is for closers" and Nicole gets a whole pot. She helped us buy our first house, sell it, and buy another. She comes highly recommended.

  • Nicole made the whole buying process smooth and easy. When looking for houses, knowing nothing about the area- she sent us articles about Novato. When we saw the neighborhood serounded with water on the map, and asked her about it- that was when she introduced us to Bel Marin Keys and helped us find our home on the first day of the first weekend we intended to look for houses. The house was on short sale, and still she managed to negotiate with the bank to cut the cost of the repairs mentioned on the already existing pest control report- about $8000. For that- we are very grateful.

  • We’ve been working with Nicole for a while now, she’s just the best realtor to work with, extremely personable and sweet and mostly she has a special and truly important skill she knows how to talk to diffuse the stress and put you at ease which is huge when you are in the midst of a real estate transaction. She helped us through the sale of our property on Aronia lane. Her knowledge of the local market is key! We put the house on the market and within a week we had an offer and in less than a month we had close escrow. Now it’s not to say that the process was not arduous with the buyers as they did give us a hard time and were trying all sorts of ways to lower the price but Nicole debunked all their arguments beautifully which lead us to close on time. We can’t say enough how happy we are to have crossed path with Nicole and we are confident she’ll help us find our dream home soon! Thank you so much Nicole! You’re the best!

  • Nicole did an amazing job listing and selling our property in Novato, CA. She demonstrated expert knowledge of home values and buyer/seller trends in the Marin county real estate market. She had a professional demeanor and a positive attitude. During the listing process, she helped us mitigate a difficult situation when our tenants were less than willing to cooperate with the placement of our house on the open market. She acted as a liaison between us and our tenants and patiently waited for the right time to list the house. Nicole was also very conscientious in marketing our house. She took a lot of good pictures of the property and advertised it with MLS immediately. She even advertised the house on it's very own website with a custom web address. She quickly generated interest in our property and even showed It to a prospective buyer days before the open house. The open house was successful! Within a few days she secured an offer that was backed by a pre-qualifying letter. We were able to negotiate terms and finalize the sale within a week after the house was listed! We were astonished and extremely pleased with the quick closing! After the offer was finalized, the rest of the process went very smoothly. Nicole, we can't thank you enough for doing such an amazing and excellent job selling our house. You have our highest recommendation!!!

  • Nicole was critical to us getting our beautiful home! While looking at homes she listened to what we wanted and showed us places without hovering and being to salesy; she knew we'd know it when we found it. The paperwork process was a wild ride with the mortgage company. Nicole was our constant advocate and creative problem solver until the paperwork was complete. Thanks Nicole!

  • Nicole is incredibly knowledgeable and simply the best at what she does! When deciding to list our condo she gave us great advice in pricing and strategy using current market research and all her years of experience and know how. Following her suggestions we were able to get an offer at asking price within a week. Nicole did an equally stellar job in assisting us in purchasing our current home. She was extremely helpful and proactive throughout both processes, No task or question seemed too big or small! Her expertise of the area and the market and all of her ties to the community proved to be amazing resources to us. Not to mention she is a delight to work with! Professional, cheerful, positive, and VERY hardworking. We definitely felt like we were her only clients given all the attention to detail she gave us. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy and/or sell a home!

  • My brother recently passed away and I found myself in the position of needing to sell his condominium. I interviewed several real estate agents and I was so impressed with Nicole, I knew immediately she was someone I could work with. Her knowledge of the market, positive attitude and constant communication assured me of a high level of comfort during the entire process. Nicole's suggestions and good advice helped me make the right decisions to ensure the property would be appealing and ready for a quick sale while maximizing the potential value of the property. Her patience proved she wasn't out to make a quick dollar. Nicole was determined to do all she could to help me sell this condominium and her professionalism continued after receiving the contract. She assisted me in deciding on the best offer and guided me in every step of the closing to ensure I understood the process. Nicole is a true professional and I would recommend her services to anyone in need of selling their property.

  • Nicole Burton is one of those "one in a million" dream realtors! As first time home buyers here in Marin Co., we feel extremely fortunate to have met and worked with Nicole. From the first moment on she displayed a very patient and professional attitude, and was very instrumental in educating us in the subtleties of the current real estate market in Marin. She was extremely diligent, regularly finding many potential properties for us to view, week-in and week-out, and all the while displaying a concern and intuitiveness for our budget and life style. She was very hands-on, with energy un-paralleled, always keeping us up to date and apprised of all details regarding: Escrow Time Line, Title Company, Lender, Seller, etc.; and an excellent negotiator. She always ‘came clean’ and was up front about informing us about the pros and cons of all properties and dealings, and has the rare ability of being aggressive but without the slightest trace of being ‘pushy’, which shows that she really cares about people (her clients), relationship building, and is in it for the long haul and not just trying to ‘make that sale’. We have complete confidence in Nicole, and feel lucky to have met her. I can’t imagine a better Real Estate agent out there, and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

  • I really cannot speak highly enough of Nicole, she is really one of a kind! I relocate quite regularly (in last 16 years: 8 homes, 3 house purchases, 2 sales, 3 times landlord) so have been in contact with probably more than a 100 real estate professionals in that time, and not even the best of those would even come close to Nicole. Incredibly patient, professional, goes above and beyond all the time, fights your corner, and is not just looking to make a quick commission (although she earns every penny of it). Nicole is also very hands, I do not have room here to list all the things, big and small, that she has done for us that would not be within the remit of a ordinary realtor, and we are truly grateful. She understands the importance of building relationships, looking at the long term, which many realtors who come in and out of the profession following market fluctuations clearly do not. She found our townhouse when we bought it, she found us a renter when we relocated, she managed the property during the rental period and now she has found us some great buyers. It's win-win-win with Nicole! I would recommend her to anybody and trust her without reserve.

  • No call, Nicole is top notch, 10 star rating out of 10, the best real estate agent in this area that I've had contact with. She was the most responsive, thoughtful and resourceful agent I have ever met. We looked at various condos on Friday night. Went back on Saturday, We went over all the pros and cons of each site. Including fixer-upper costs or repairs that needed doing. Chose the perfect match for me. Went back on Sunday for a final look. Put in my bid. Accepted on Monday, and one month later I had my new home. She’s excellent, on top of everything in her profession, and very intuitive about the personalities, likes, dislikes, and needs of her clients. She is a great negotiator and I will recommend her to anyone. Her contact with me did not stop at that point. Even after the sale was finalized she's been active in checking up on me, and making sure that I follow through on things I need to do with the condo association. Nicole and her husband are very, very thoughtful, caring, and honest people. No one can choose a better real estate agent than Nicole Burton.

  • Nicole is an excellent real estate agent. She's a great communicator and always friendly and upbeat. She was very proactive with every step of the purchasing/escrow process. She was always totally on top of the details and had fantastic follow through. Once our purchase was complete, she helped us find a painter for our new property. She then asked her knowledgeable husband to check in on the job twice during the project to make sure the painter did a high-quality job. I would definitely use Nicole for any future Marin real estate transactions and give her my highest recommendation.

  • Nicole is wonderful. You would be very lucky to have her representing you. She is professional and very quick to respond to any and all of my novice questions. She is careful with every detail and kept me informed step by step. She was always looking after my best interest. Nicole is very caring and lovely to talk to and now that this process is over I think I will miss our near daily conversations. She made a stressful situation much easier.

  • We are so happy Nicole contacted us! We had talked to a few other agents and she was the best! It was a long process getting everything finished but she made it a good experience and we will work with her again next time we are in the market.-

  • I have bought and sold many homes, I have worked with many real state agents, and never seen, experienced the level of trust, experience, professionalism, and friendship than Nicole, and Yvonne. We will NEVER forget what you have done for us. Thank you both.

  • Very sweet with lots of experience. Responds quickly and good in negotiation Very good experience looking for good investments. Worked together on the house in Bel Marin Keys and, with good negotiation, reduced the price from 505k to 450k.

  • While preparing our condo for rental, we met with Nicole to get her ideas and suggestions. She was obviously very up-to-date on what to do. We followed her advice and she found an excellent renter found in very short order. She then followed up by taking the lead on all the details and arrangements. We are very happy to recommend her to anyone who has real estate rental or sale/purchase plans. She is straightforward, knowledgeable, proactive.

  • Nicole Burton is a very accomplished and knowledgeable real estate agent. She focuses solely on the client's needs and desires and comes up with a plan so as not to waste the client's valuable time. She isn't 'pushy' (like so many others out there) and is a joy to be around. Whether you're listing your property or looking for one, you can be assured that you Nicole will guide you through the process with professionalism and an accommodating demeanor.

  • I had an image of realtors that made me dread buying a house. Then I was introduced to Nicole. Her knowledge of the area and negotiating talent meant we did not find a house, we found a home! What made Nicole so special for us was that she took the time to understand our exact needs, learn from each viewing and help us find the perfect home. She was also a lot of fun! I would use her again and recommend her to anyone in Marin. The great skill she has is that she listens and asks smart questions to really understand the home you are trying to find. Saved me hours of wasted trips. I trust her judgment completely.

  • We want to thank you for your hard work on making our property close. Working with you was a breath of fresh air in the craziness of the current real estate market. You were very on top of every detail and didn't let anything fall through the cracks. You also kept us updated every step of the way and did a fabulous job of negotiating for all the right things. We couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out and we feel like you were a large part of making this transaction a success. Thanks again and we look forward to working with you again in the future. ". –

  • Nicole is an exceptional real estate professional dedicated to helping her clients by simplifying the process of buying real estate. She made the entire process of buying real estate less stressful for me. Her marketing and negotiating skills are exceptional and she has been a great help with renting out the place as well. She is great at what she does. Above all, she is a great person and I am thankful I met her. I can't recommend her enough.

  • We have been looking for a home for a while and, when we finally found one, Nicole happened to be in the right place at the right time. Nicole has been amazing throughout the entire process of buying a home. She is very knowledgeable about the properties, locations, escrow process to closing and provides a great service with a smile. She obviously knows what she is talking about and is very knowledgeable about the markets, the economic climate, and how to navigate the real estate market. She would respond immediately to all of our questions no matter how insignificant or complicated the questions. She always provided us with thorough, detailed answers that helped to guide us through the entire house buying process. During the negotiating process things got a little dicey for a while, but again she went out of her way to make us understand the situation and helped work through this phase too. We highly respect Nicole and have no reservations about her services. We have to say that she is by far one the best agents we have come across. We hope to work with her again and will pass her name around to everyone we know...:) .

  • They say that real estate agents have gone the way of other service professionals due to the internet. While you might not need a travel agent to book your airline tickets, when buying a home you NEED an advocate on your side. The problem with the internet is that there is so much information, as well as those who SAY they will help you out. In the process of looking at various properties, we found that many of the agents listed online never returned our calls, or they forwarded our request to someone else. It seemed like the faces next to the listings were formalities rather than people who wanted to help in the process. Then we found Nicole... While I don't believe we were looking in an area where Nicole usually operates, she was more than gracious in taking time to forward our goal of buying a home. She was responsive, helpful, and gave great insight. I have also never met anyone who is as cheerful under ANY circumstance. She's not just a nice person, but also a talented individual. She explained each step of the purchasing process and advocated for us just as a real estate agent is supposed to do. She was there from the first phone call to even personally dropping off the keys. The icing on the cake was the house-warming gift she left with us on that special day. I only wish that I had someone like Nicole in other areas of my life where I need excellent customer service. She understands what that term means and embodies it in everything she does.

  • Nicole is fantastic to work with. She is always there to answer any questions we have, and she is always quick to get back to us. What's surprising is how she manages to gather such a wealth of information in the short time it takes her to return a phone call or reply to an email. She is an extremely knowledgeable, professional, and above all pleasant to deal with. I will not hesitate to recommend Nicole to any of my friends that are looking to find a home in the Bay area.

  • Nicole is an outstanding real estate professional who guided me through the complex process of selling my home. She was always available to answer any of my questions or concerns and held numerous open houses. Because I was not local she spent a lot of time helping with permits, materials, staging and contractors to insure a smooth sale. Nicole went above and beyond to help with the sale from the beginning to the end. I would definitely recommend her to anyone buying, selling or renting a home.

  • Nicole helped us find a house and then, when we relocated, found us a renter. When we were looking for our house, she stood out from all the other Realtors: she showed us a huge number of properties, displayed incredible patience - nothing was ever too much trouble. Same when we were looking for a renter: she helped us with staging the house, putting in hours of work, giving advice and running to stores to find pieces to raise the value of our rental. I would not hesitate for one second to recommend Nicole to anybody looking to buy, sell or rent.

  • When my son and I decided to purchase a condo together we looked no further for an agent than Nicole. She had been the Realtor who had found a home for my daughter and son-in-law a few years ago. She helped them every step of the way with the confusion of short sales, foreclosures, etc. in the market then. I knew she would do no less for us, in fact, I felt as though she was there to hold our hands in every step of the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone contemplating either buying or selling property. You can't go wrong with her on your side!
