Nick Szabo completely undermined all preconceived negative impressions I harbored toward real estate agents, formed from my previous home buying experience. Nick was honest and trustworthy, dedicated and responsive, knowledgable and sharp. In short, Nick turned what I expected to be an arduous, stressful home buying experience into one that was actually fun and exciting.
Nick did not push for a quick sale; rather, he worked with my wife and I to define the qualities we were looking for in a home and neighborhood, and find the house that best suited us. When there was nothing on the market that fit our personalities, he urged us to wait and called for patience. When we found a home that was above our initially stated price range, he called for restraint and assured us we would be able to find what we were looking for within our price range.
Nick was always available and incredibly helpful. He walked us through the entire process and took care of everything: advertisment, preparing our existing home for sale, home inspections, termite inspections, staging, and negotiations. No matter how small or seemingly stupid questions we had, he would answer the phone (usually by the second ring) and get us an answer.
I know these comments probably seem conrived and overly glowing, but my experience with Nick was an excellent one. My wife and I consider him a friend now and would recommend him to anyone who is looking, buying or selling.
We look forward to working with him and Zip Realty in the future.
