"All the reviews are true! Nick is a straight-shooter, doesn’t over-promise, but does over-deliver. He is one of the best realtors I have ever worked with, and I’ve bought/sold quite a few houses. Nick is smart, professional, experienced, and a great communicator. He gets an A++ rating from me. My last sale (with Nick) was a very unique property that was difficult to comp. We openly discussed strategy and pricing and agreed on a go-to-market plan. The photographer and the staging company he recommended Read MoreRead Less
"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."
"Nick and his team did an outstanding job presenting and selling our home in Woodinville. We listed on a Friday morning, had appointments later that afternoon and by Sunday evening, had more than 100 people walk-thru the house and 11 offers - all over asking price! Nick has been great to work with - very informative, positive and responsive all through the process. We couldn't be happier with how things went in the sale of our house and would not hesitate to enthusiastically recommend Nick and Upgrade RealRead MoreRead Less
"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!"
"The best...from the start, Nick was nothing more than professional from day one. Spoke honestly concerning current evaluation of the area, a solid price to sell at, and what we could expect. Nick suggested companies to help in completing the upgrades needed to sell the home. All bids were fair (compared to two other bids minimum I obtained), and his referenced companies were professional and completed all work on time. When we put home up for sell, all viewings were scheduled. We had 30 viewings in a thRead 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
"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."
"I found Nick through his online advertising and I made the decision to use him as the agent to sell my condo after he came over for the 2nd time giving me a very detailed marketing plan as to how he planned to sell my home for top dollar. I loved the enthusiasm he had for my place and I anticipated that he would present the same energy during any open house he would hold. He came by and spent one whole morning setting up beautiful lights that gave my outdoor patio a wow factor for the photography. I appreRead MoreRead Less
"Nick is the best realtor I have ever met. My condo was pulling back from the market a few years ago with not good experience. But under Nick's help, he make my condo looks great and sold it in 4 days, i am very happy to work with Nick."
"Nick is an absolutely amazing agent! Super kind, knowledgeable, very available with fast response times, and very easy to talk to. He also has excellent strategies when making an offer and has a few tricks up his sleeve that helped me win a mini bidding war. Even after the deal has closed, Nick still checked in to see how I was doing and even volunteered to help fix some things around the house and spruce up the place with new upgrades. Nick is really committed to helping his clients find and live in a grRead MoreRead Less
"Nick was there to answer each and every question. He was knowledgeable and patient. His photography team was excellent! He made the process of selling so much less stressful, which is exactly what you need when selling your home!"
"Nick has continued to be our trusted agent. Working with Nick over years, both as a buyer and seller, has been a pleasure. Most recently, Nick was a confident and competent agent for listing and selling our condo in West Seattle. At our initial intake meeting, Nick came prepared with his research specific to our needs and area. He gave us full confidence in his ability and provided clear expectations and proposals to be suit our situation. Nick was ALWAYS available and prompt in communication. Even while Read MoreRead Less
"Nick is super easy to work with. Professional photographers, stagers, and cleaners were at the ready to prepare our home to be sold at top dollar. Communication was excellent and we saved with his commission structure. I would highly recommend Nick for anyone selling their home. Respectful. Tactful. Professional."
"Nick was amazing our house sold in 4 days above asking. Always available to answer any questions. Can't say enough."
"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
"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
"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."
