What My Clients Have to Say

  • 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.

  • 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)
  • 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.

  • Nikki was a consummate professional. She walked me through every step and every decision. No high pressure tactics; I felt that each decision was my own – assisted by good data and friendly, knowledgeable recommendations. – Seller, 140 East 28th Street

    Alexis Hoag (buyer)
  • 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!!
