The Best Agent I Have Ever Used

Nick has high moral character and work ethic

“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-light that it deserves.”

We had 3 offers and one in the first week, and when we finally had the right family for our home it sold for our asking price. Pretty amazing and it sold in 30 days from the day we listed our home. I would recommend Nick for anyone looking to sell your home, He only charges 1% fee. Nick get's all Ten with us”


We Were Over The Moon with Nick

“Our experience with Nick Southard was amazing! He is very professional and has excellent communication skills. He listened to our needs and presented them perfectly to the buyer. He takes your call every time - no vm unless perhaps he's on the other line. Provided us with potential buyers feedback immediately and then provided us with next steps. Nick sold our home in Washington State when the market was low in 2010 within 8 weeks, and got us very close to our expected selling price! We were over the moon with Nick and greatly appreciated all his hard work. In fact, we will be calling him again soon regarding the sale of our current home. The photos he takes of your home are beautiful!!

Nick is very knowledgably, personable and a straight shooter. He provided us with all the information needed to make a good discussion on selling our home. You will be very happy and pleased knowing you will be receiving the best possible service once you sign on/up with Nick.”

Nick knows the market very well, has good advice, and provided an amazing service.”

My Home Sold in Two Days

The photos of the house were excellent and the flyer and online representation first rate. Plus, Nick was always available for every concern and question.

I'd Enthusiastically Recommend Nick Southard

“Nick helped us sell our home in Fremont in 2010. The process was easy, and even in an economic downturn with several similar properties in our area we got a great price. He was responsive to our questions and arranged a photographer to capture our home beautifully.

As I recall, the house was only on the market for about 3 weeks before it sold, which at the time was a small miracle.

I'd enthusiastically recommend Nick Southard if you want to sell your home.”
