"Nick did a truly AMAZING job navigating this crazy market for us!! Everything he told us would happen… DID happen. His experience and knowledge are invaluable! He went ABOVE and BEYOND to help us as well as having oodles of compassion for our emotional ups & downs. He answered every question and was always attentive and easy to reach. We felt like we had a warrior in our camp throughout the whole process. His intuition and expertise was spot on! He is an agent you can trust to work for YOUR benefit!"
"Nick helped us sell our home in Kirkland WA. It sold in 1 weekend for a great price even as some nearby homes languished on the market. Part of the magic is Nick's keen understanding of the market and what we needed to do to make our home attractive to buyers. But really Nick works harder than agents that charge triple the commission. As a retired CPA I appreciate value and Nick offers unparalleled value. Plus, he is a real nice guy to work with."
"I recommend Upgrade Realty without reservation. Nick’s work on my recent transaction was flawless. He assessed the market with amazing insight, positioned the property perfectly, and put together a deal that was a great win for everybody involved. I’ve bought and sold about a dozen properties in my life. I’ve seen the good and bad of real estate transactions. The transaction Upgrade handled was the best of any of them. They were the right choice for me, and I’m confident they would be for you too."
"Nick lives and breathes Real Estate. I really like how available he is every single time I called or texted. Extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of selling or buying a home. Much experience. Mine sold in about a minute and a half with a cash bidding war. He navigated it really well. We also seemed to have the same taste and sensibilities which helped. He spends a LOT on the photography and it really showed. Cannot recommend him enough."
"Nick was fantastic to work with on selling our home! He not only met but exceeded our expectations. We thought we had missed out on the sellers’ market, but we sold our house in 4 days with multiple bids and got 9% over asking price! After living in our home for 24 yrs., the selling process was very emotional. Nick was very understanding, easy to work with, gave great preparation advise, responded to communication quickly, has wonderful marketing, and all for 1% commission! I highly recommend Nick!!"
"Amazing services. Upgrade Realty provide full service from beginning to end. The agent even help you move heavy furnitures, and clean house. From the listing to sold, Nick will take care every steps. And yes, the commission only 1%. My house was a little bit challenge to sell because sloped yard. But Nick has very great skill and strategy, he made 50 showings in a month, and bring offers. Highly recommend who want to save more money, and get best services."
"We recently closed on the sale of our property with Nick. We were thoroughly pleased with the professionalism and level of service Nick provided to us. This was our second attempt at trying to sell our home, and we ended up choosing Nick after our initial meeting with him. His marketing plan was right on and we really appreciated the investment he makes on the photography - the photos were top notch. He was also readily available every time I reached out and he had strong negotiation skills as well. We hiRead MoreRead Less
"I honestly could have written a 5-star review on day one of meeting Nick Southard—talk about amazing customer service!!! I feel very lucky I found the beautiful Upgrade Real Estate site, and so I decided to call...what was so impressive to me was that Nick the "owner" of the company answered my call (what?). This was just a great indicator of the good things to come. My first call was on Wednesday, I met Nick and his photographer on Thursday, he created my gorgeous listing (with the most incredible Read MoreRead Less
"Working with Nick Southard was an amazing experience. I was looking for an agent who was willing to go above and beyond what is expected of a great agent. And since I was in another state, I needed to ask a lot of my realtor. Man, did I find the right agent. Time and time again, and without even being asked, Nick went above and beyond… saving me money, cutting the time for the transaction, always on top of the action. It was hard to believe how quickly Nick was able to get tasks completed. Somehow, in a mRead MoreRead Less
"Nick at Upgrade Realty was fantastic! He helped guide us through all the steps we needed to take to sell our house FAST and above our asking price. He recommended vendors (carpet company, power washing) that he had relationships with that were efficient and affordable. I really appreciated Nick's thoughtful communication throughout. I would strongly recommend Upgrade Realty!"
"Just sold my house with Upgrade Realty, Nick was very professional, a great communicator, very knowledgeable about real-estate and passionate about marketing. Offers all the same services as competitors at 1% commission. Highly recommended!"
"Over the years we have bought and sold 5 homes and Nick is by far the best realtor we have hired. He was available at any time night or day including weekends. He did multiple open houses at times convenient for us. The photos were so good that our buyer flew out from Ohio to tour our home. He is a true professional who gives 110% for 1/3 the cost of inferior agents. We will use Nick if we ever need a realtor and have already recommended him to friends."
"Nick went above and beyond to get my house sold for above asking cause he knew the value was there…..no one will work harder than Nick…. He is awesome!!!!"
"Nick has been SUCH a pleasure to work with! I'm truly grateful that I found him. I found him after he sold 2 other units in my condo complex which I was very impressed with. He ensured everything ran smoothly during the sale. Nick also went out of his way to make sure the place was staged beautifully and the marketing was so so SO well done. He brought in an amazing photographer. My situation in particular was a difficult one, dealing with a stubborn ex who got his also stubborn father involved, but Nick Read MoreRead Less

"Nick was excellent to work with! He is extremely prompt and knowledgeable about the entire process from A to Z. Nick went above and beyond for our listing and was a dedicated agent. I’ve worked with a bunch of agents and they’re not created equal. Don’t second guess giving Nick a call!"
"We were lucky to find Nick when we searched for a discount brokerage firm online. His outstanding full service with only 1% listing fee is absolutely the best value for any homeowners. His professional skills and strategies was perfect for our Seattle home sale.

We look forward to working with him in the future. Here is an interestRead MoreRead Less

"I wanted to say a big thanks to Nick Southard our realtor with Upgrade Realty, he did an amazing with getting our home listed, the photo shoot was the best I have seen yet, from our very first day we had a ton of traffic in our home.

"I met Nick Southard... when I was trying to sell my townhouse in Mukilteo. He became my listing agent and got it sold, despite it's quirky architectural design and parking issues... He has a fun upbeat personality and is mindful and diligent in preparing one's property for maximum potential value... Nick has high moral character and work ethic. His work is of the highest standard... I would highly recommend Nick to any home-owner who takes pride in their property and wants to show-case it in the lime-liRead MoreRead Less
