What My Clients Have to Say

Nikki was invaluable to us in selling our condo! We had a challenging sales process but it gave us so much peace of mind to know that Nikki was in our corner, advocating hard for us. Her knowledge and experience made her a priceless part of selling our home and I’m honestly not sure we would have survived without her. If you are ever looking for a broker to help you buy or sell, do NOT hesitate to hire Nikki.

Working with Nikki as we searched for a home to buy was such a pleasure.  During this difficult and complicated process her organization and availability were both invaluable.  With all the challenges that accompany the home buying process her steady, cheerful presence and wealth of valuable information made us feel like we were in good hands the whole time”

“It was wonderful having Nikki Thomas as my real estate agent the City. I was looking for an apartment in NYC and needed it ASAP. Her knowledge of the areas, and her guidance was perfect. I would highly recommend her services and would use her again for any real estate purchase or sale in NY. Buying apartments in NYC is a very complicated thing, and she was extremely helpful in managing to get all forms required for my coop. Thank you Nikki!!”

Seller, 140 East 28th Street

seller

“I have worked with Nikki on two separate transactions, and she was a tremendous help both times. She carefully and conscientiously walked me through each step in the process while providing valuable input along the way. She is also one of the friendliest people you will ever meet, and her passion for real estate is immediately apparent from the moment that you begin working with her. I cannot recommend Nikki highly enough for anyone thinking about buying a new home”

Jon Carter

buyer

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Nikki. Nikki is a very passionate, honest realtor with great skills and knowledge. It is difficult to find a realtor with all these qualities in NYC. Especially in the past year during the pandemic, [when] we can get the deal done, it means a lot.”

Jielin K.

owner

“I was so fortunate to have found Nikki when I first moved to New York. As my Realtor, Nikki first successfully helped me find my first rental apartment, and then a few years later, helped my wife and I find the right condo in the right neighborhood for the right price. She cautioned us about purchasing new construction and how to deal with the, at times frustrating, experience of purchasing from a sponsor. Her advice at closing was invaluable. In short, she was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. We would recommend her to anyone.”

Aaron R.

buyer

“I could not have asked for a better realtor than Nikki. Not only did she help me navigate being a first time buyer, but she also did so during a completely wild time in NYC real estate. Through all of it, she was great and made sure I felt comfortable. No question was too silly, and her advice was always spot on. I’m so grateful to have worked with Nikki, and I know I’ll turn to her for any future NYC real estate needs I have! “

Alison M.

buyer

“We couldn’t have had a better guide for our Prospect Heights’ coop sale. Nikki gave us excellent advice on timing, staging and pricing. We had a solid offer within two weeks. Nikki’s knowledge of the neighborhood and of the building was especially key in finalizing the sale. We highly recommend her. We couldn’t have done it without her.”

J. Wilson and P. Halfkenny

seller

“Nikki is not just a broker, she is an ally to and advocate for her clients. When I bought my first home, a co-op in Sutton Place, Nikki guided me through the process, never tiring of my seemingly endless questions. She also helped me negotiate a great price. Years later, when I took a job across the country, Nikki was the only person I trusted to help me find a tenant. Nikki once again held my hand through and found me the perfect renter. I can’t imagine navigating the New York real estate market without having an expert like Nikki by my side.”

Katherine McDaniel

buyer

“Nikki is too good to be true. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate market and about every aspect about buying a home. She is always organized, attentive, and helpful. And on top of all of that, she is fun to be around. She made buying my first home feel so much less scary because I knew I had a smart professional on my side.”

Spend a few moments these days outside of the Brooklyn Museum, and you’ll be treated to a free show - the museum’s pulsating fountain. I love that there’s this beautiful, historic space where locals can just relax and enjoy a very chill (and free) city summer experience. 😎 Part of why being in Brooklyn is so damn great!

One of my favorite places to visit year round are the Channel Gardens at @rockefellercenter
No matter the season, they always have a fun installation going. If you’re in the area, take a moment to stop by and enjoy it. Even if it’s loaded with tourists, I promise it’s still worth the pause
