Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
I cannot even begin to describe how fortunate I was to stumble across Nicole and engage her as my Buyer's Agent. For a relatively small ($500K+) purchase of an island home on Lake Winnipesaukee which was a real mess and very complicated, convoluted transaction which took ~6 months to close, Nicole did 51 (fifty-one) phone calls with me for which I have notes (and dozens of others for which I did not take notes); she personally visited the island spot multiple times during very rough winter weather conditions; I can see 122 emails from Nicole in my inbox during this period. She was incredibly responsive (often multiple phone calls per day) and very clearly prioritized enabling my personal dream of owning a place on beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee. I believe any other real estate agent would have walked away from this incredibly complicated and relatively small transaction. Nicole took a genuine interest in understanding the complexities of the situation and invested the time and willpower to overcome each and every difficulty. Through her network of local connections - several of whom indicated they would do anything to help out Nicole and sometimes described her as "a dear friend" - she helped to discover a solution to a Septic issue of which even the local septic company was unaware, and then Nicole invested the time to convince that firm of this possibility, which succeeded in the end. In the process Nicole quickly came to understand what was important to my wife and children and explained to me much of the Lake history and current trends, while also clearly highlighting the potential financial risks of the situation. My sense is that Nicole is motivated by enabling your hopes and dreams to come true, 100% honest to the very core, and is clearly willing to sacrifice her own time and expense to achieve a successful outcome. She put in about 100x more time and effort into this transaction than any other real estate agent I've worked with in the past decade, while other agents viewed this situation as a complete waste of time. She is a lovely personality to work with, deserving of complete trust, has the best interests of the lake community at heart, and it seems to me that she is just a wonderful human being. Would give 6 stars if Zillow allowed me to!!
We worked with Nicole for almost two years to find a luxury waterfront house on Lake Winnipesaukee. She is a rare breed of real estate professional who combines unparalleled knowledge of the local markets with amazing emotional intelligence. She is a sensitive listener who took the time to understand our needs and analyzed each property we toured with that in mind. Most importantly she never imposed her opinions on us but was instead a skillful sounding board as we evaluated and talked about the opportunities. It's entirely unsurprising that Nicole is one of the top producers in the lakes region. We would work with her again in a New York minute.
Tireless energy, high integrity, punctuality and providing thorough research on homes are the consistent attributes that Nicole Watkins exudes. We are truly thankful that in our second year of house hunting on the Big lake that we found Nicole to assist us in locating and purchasing our dream home for our family. Nicole's number one priority is finding the perfect property for her clients. She introduced us to homes well under our budget as she is not motivated with higher price tags in order to obtain a higher commission but rather finding the perfect property for her clients. We found that Lakes Region Realty has unsurpassed standards. They are a rarity in the real estate world and Nicole is their top producing realtor for a reason.
