Customer Testimonial

Leslie Smith

Buyer Rating:

I called Leslie initially in March, to search for a rental. I cold called her after finding her information on Yelp. Even though it was way too early for me to even be looking, considering our lease wasn't going to be up for a few months, she stayed on the phone with me for as long as I had questions. She talked to me about areas I was considering and addressed all concerns. I called her many times thereafter, to check in and see when we should start looking at rentals. I had spoken to other agents throughout this process and unfortunately found that no one was interested in really speaking to me. Leslie never made me feel like my questions were unwelcome. Shortly thereafter, our plans took a 180 turn and we decided we were interested in looking into purchasing a home instead. When we told Leslie, she jumped right in and made it known that she'd be there to help through every step of the process. Leslie was an integral part of our first home buying experience. She helped us figure out a good price range and walked us through what to expect at every stage. No matter the time of day or how many times a question had been asked, she remained positive and attentive and helpful throughout. When there were some issues with the lender and title company, she jumped right in and went to bat for our team. We couldn't have done this without her. With Leslie, I felt like we were dealing with a friend looking out for our best interests, rather than a broker looking to close a deal. It took a lot of the anxiety and pressure out of the process for us. I can't say enough good things about Leslie and I'm really glad she was the one with us on this journey. - Erica Gelfand, Phoenix July 2016

Our experience with Heather was so positive when she helped us find a lease home that we didn't want anyone else as our home purchase agent.

Heather is a delight to work with. We always felt like she went beyond the call of duty. We've already referred her to two friends and refuse to use anyone else for all future purchases.

As buyers, Heather is everything we hoped for and more. She epitomizes what a caring , professional agent should b . Our whole family loves her! - Lupe Munoz; Phoenix, Az June 2016

The Lowry-Nichols Group

Seller Rating:

My husband and I are not new to buying and selling properties. Without a doubt, Heather Lowry Nichols was the best agent we ever dealt with for our real estate transactions. She kept in continual contact throughout the entire process and was so responsive to any question or concern we had from listing to closing. This was so appreciated as we were selling our home from across the country! We highly recommend Heather for all your real estate needs! - James And Nancy Allegret July 2015
