Nancy's testimonials

Gerard & Femmy

As a buyer, to us, she went out of her way to make the transaction as smooth as possible. Nancy gave answers to our questions, and if she was not sure, she came back to us later with the answer, well informed. Recommend her for buying or selling. She never let her client down.

Wayne & Wendy

Wonderful Nancy! Nancy is a highly respected, professional and knowledgeable real estate agent. Her advice was, and has been since, clear and concise and always with our best interests in mind.

What a great company to deal with. Nancy sold our house and I must say the fee was so great I can still take the wife on a holiday with the savings! Thanks Nancy


Nancy has been fantastic throughout the whole process of me purchasing my property, she’s been very helpful and has always been quick to respond or resolve any queries I’ve had. I highly recommend her!


Nancy was great to deal with, she was very easy to approach, came back to me with answers to any questions promptly and efficiently. A very smooth and easy process for selling my property and I would definitely recommend her to anyone considering selling.

Lesha & Dan

Highly Recommend Nancy! She made us feel comfortable straight away, she answered any questions we had with kindness and she made buying our first home far less daunting. Buying a home is such a big process and you wouldn’t regret having Nancy in your corner.

Jourdan & Drew

Nancy has been lovely to work with from A-Z. Our house sale was very smooth, and everything happened quickly! Can’t thank Nancy enough for her help and professionalism with our first house sale. Wishing Nancy all the best for future projects.

Recently we had to choose a real estate to help our parents sell their home. We wanted someone who was not only effective but also sympathetic, caring and compassionate, Nancy is all of these and so much more. Nancy worked tirelessly to achieve the best result she could appreciating that this was not an easy time for Mum and Dad and making the process as stress-free as possible for two elderly people. Her communication was excellent, and she was readily available at the end of the phone with progress and updates from open homes and enquiries. We cannot thank Nancy enough for the way she went above and beyond her normal duties and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an exceptional person and real estate agent.

Chris & Sylvia Hickson

With Nancy we certainly found what we were looking for in an agent, she was very professional from the outset. The initial proposal was very well prepared and presented. Her friendly and caring attitude was carried on through to the completion of the sale and beyond. During the marketing period we were kept well informed of all advertising, enquires, numbers of online viewings and open home attendances which helped us, as vendors, through this period. We believe we could not have bettered the attitude and service that Nancy provided and we would have no hesitation in fully recommending her to anybody thinking of selling their property.
