• What My Clients Have To Say......

    Sophia – thank you again for everything!!!  XOXOXO 

    My family and I have used Sophia as our realtor in purchasing two homes.  We are also now going to use her in selling a home.  We all can’t say enough good things about Sophia!   With both transactions everything was handled so smoothly and with no issues.   In addition Sophia was always on top of everything and checking in with us at every step to ensure everything was going well.  She really cares about her clients and she shows it by her actions not just by her words. 

    With my recent home purchase I got scared about the process and backed away from a counter offer and told Sophia at 9pm one night that we should say no.  Sophia with her expertise and knowledge let me sleep on it (she had told me ok I understand and will tell them no but told me nothing else) and in the morning she called me back to talk…..she said before I call and say no I just want to make sure this is what you really want to do. She spent time talking with me and we ran down the positives and the negatives.  And in the end I bought the house and could not be happier.  Sophia not only was my realtor but she was a friend who knew that I truly wanted the house and just needed to get me through a hurdle.  That in my mind is going above and beyond!   Wishing Sophia and Nicholas Real Estate continued success!!     If you want a realtor call anyone but if you want a realtor who cares about you and your needs call Sophia!

    We still have not found our dream home but Sophia has been patience and knowledge in guiding us in the right path. Hopefully with her help we will finally become home owners.

    Sophia is not only knowledgeable, she truly cares about her clients. I have had the privilege to see many homes by Sophia and her only concern is their best interest. If you want to work with someone who will always do right by you, Sophia is your Realtor!

    Sophia was very knowledgeable. She kept on top of things and was always available when I contacted her. She always replied in a very timely manner when I had questions.

    If there is a better rating than "5 stars" for local knowledge, expertise, responsiveness and negotiation skills, Sophia will undoubtedly receive it. Sophia is extremely attentive and caring with her clients and it's clear that she has their best interest in mind. She is easily responsive to all text messages, phone calls, and emails. Sophia makes showing appointments immediately and is there for all of her showings which is absolutely wonderful.
    I have worked with other realtors before I worked with Sophia and I can honestly say I have wasted so much time. From the moment I began working with Sophia, she has been a stellar coach and support ALL the way. Not only does she have the expertise and stamina to weather the ups and downs of our home search, but she has created a genuine interpersonal connection with us, listening intently to our needs and perspective and most importantly protecting our interests 100%!
    We are new to the home buying process and with the utmost patience Sophia has searched with us for the last couple of months. She walked us through several complicated steps of negotiation, purchasing offers, arranging financials to inspections and appraisals--always extremely ethical and attentive to detail.
    If you have been neglected or have been feeling that you realtor does not have your best interest in mind, look no further,
    SOPHIA CONSTANDINOU is the right agent for you!

    Selling  your home is a big decision. You have to put your biggest possession that you worked your entire life for to a Realtor to sell for you.  The question now is who to choose that will represent you and your home to the best market.  When I spoke to you, you took a few hours to explain the way you would market our home. You showed us the types of multiple listings it would be shown in. Your own web site described our home with complete details and lots of pictures. You did a market search to bring us to a price that homes in our area were selling for.  I recommend you to anyone because of your dedication to your clients.
    You told us you will return all calls the same day and that you did. You kept us informed on all prospective buyers and gave us their complete input. When you found the buyer you handled all the problems, paperwork, and home inspection and gave good advice.  Right up until the final closing you guided us through the sale. 
    A real professional with years of experience and it shows. You are a full time Realtor working long hours, not one of thousands of Realtor's out there who just think selling a house is putting a sign on your lawn and sitting back waiting for the closing. So as you can read my experience with you was excellent and I recommend you to anyone looking to sell his or her home. One last word is even though you were not selling us a new home as we were leaving the state of New Jersey, you had gone one step further to talk to our agent in the other state to help us with that purchase.
    Thank You Sophia-We'll Miss You!

    Dear Sophia,
    Purchasing a home was something that I had wanted to do for a very long time.  Thank you so much for making it possible for me to achieve that goal.  You were very patient showing me homes day after day until I found the right one for me,  your professionalism and dedication to this lengthy process was greatly appreciated.
    Realtors that I had used in the past were too quick to show me properties that were not to my standard or price range.  You were the opposite. You took the time to sit with me and find out what I wanted. I believe that you had my best interest at heart.  I cannot thank you enough for all the time and attention you gave me. I will definitely make it a point to refer you to my friends and family when they are ready to buy or sell a home.
    It was a pleasure to work with you. Thank You So Very Much, I am very happy in my new home!

    Dearest Sophia,
    I am writing this letter to let you know that I have been really having problems paying my mortgage on my home. I have gone bankrupt and haven't paid my mortgage for many months!  This is when I had a meeting with you after calling you. Then I met you. You have helped me so much and I am working with you on a short sale now..
    You even offered to come and bring me soup when I didn't feel well.  Since meeting you I feel so much better.  You are a real people person and really great at what you do. Thank God for you!
    Judy Taddei


    Sophia you are very professional, knowledgeable and very caring in what we were looking for. You were always available and on top of everything that needed to be done. You always were willing to help in anything we needed and you closed the deal to our highest satisfaction.  We highly recommend you!

    Dear Sophia 

    How are you? Hope you had a wonderful (work-free) weekend...however judging by our similar workaholic tendencies,  I have a feeling you didn't get the R&R you more than deserve!

    Anyhow, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for being so wonderful to us throughout our house-hunting process. I know anyone could say that, technically speaking, you're just doing your job, but you've gone above and beyond our expectations in every way to make us feel as comfortable as possible. I'm certain you've come to realize that I'm quite protective of my family and consequently quite cautious when it comes to letting new people get involved in my personal matters, especially when it concerns my family and their well-being/future/etc. But from Day 1, you and your team put my whole family at ease by taking the time to get to know "The Kim Family" as people and as genuine friends. Most importantly, you've helped us realize that finding a home isn't about closing a deal or settling for the "best bargain" - you always encourage us to look around - "feel the space", if you will, - and to ask ourselves if it "feels like Home". And in our appreciation for the time, energy and love you've given us, we demand your presence at least once a month for dinner at our house (or, at the very least, coffee break and a quick nap:) until we're all 101 yrs old and appropriately relocate to sunny side Sarasota, Florida :)

     Love to your family and your team!

    With loving thanks,

    Carol & Han -Proud Clifton Homeowner

    P.S. We bought this house last May, 2011 through you. You are a very professional agent. Plus you are the most kind & friendly agent among many I had met while looking for a new home. You always got back to us ASAP whenever we had any questions or concerns, and we still keep in touch as friends. We really appreciate you.

     



    Sophia is a very dedicated and a detailed oriented person. She always returns your calls and gets back to you in a prompt manner.  She took a lot of time with us and was very patient and understanding.  She guided us and helped us throughout the stressful process of first time home buyer.

    We have dealt with other agents in the past and they were,....oh my gosh always very pushy.  Then we met SOPHIA!  

    We decided we wanted to do something very special for her, so we had a big message embroidered on a satin cloth and framed for her. The  message says, "You Are The  #1 Realtor".

    Sophia has become a very dear friend to us and we appreciate all her dedication to us.  She will always be, "Our Realtor".

    We Love You!

    Raphael & Alicia Hastings-Thanks to her we are now proud homeowner



    Dear Mr. Tselepis, (Broker)

    We just wanted to write and say how great it was working with Sophia. She was always available via email, text and phone and was very considerate with our needs. When it came down to presenting an offer to the seller, she was professional and well prepared.  The seller and her agent also commented on Sophia's professionalism.  After doing her research, Sophia recommended what our offer should be and after some negotiations with the seller, Sophia closed the deal for us.
    We are certainly going to recommend Sophia to others and wish her and your firm continued success!!

    Dear Sophia,
    Alex and I never thought that our first home buying experience would  be so soon and prompt.  When in doubt you made it plain and simple for us to realize what we really valued and that just made the decision so much easier for us.  We really enjoyed the ride the experience and it was truly memorable.  It was such a pleasure working with you: we hope we weren't too much of a headache.  I know we (Alex) can get a little needy at times (lol), it’s just that our first home was a big step for us.  Thank you for always keeping things real with us, we really needed someone that we could trust and we were very happy that we got to work with you in this process.  We are still not moved in yet because of renovations but we are so excited our vision is going to be completed soon and we will finally enjoy our new home.  You will always be welcomed there with open arms in our new home. (Feel free to visit anytime)  Thank you so much for everything!
    From the reassurance when in doubt, to the reality checks, to the dedication you put in working with us. To the excitement you showed us by showing up with your surprise at our closing, that was really sweet, we really didn't expect that.  We really felt like our new achievement was also your
    achievement and that made us feel good to work with you.  We fall in love with the house more and more as we put in work to complete our vision.
    Looking forward to working with you again in the future!
    With Much Appreciation

    We would like to express our gratitude to Sophia Constandinou for all her assistance throughout our purchasing process for our new home in Waldwick, NJ.  Sophia was always available to us for questions also on the weekends, during the evenings on the phone, and via email and text message.  Since this was our second home purchase, we were very picky as to what we were looking for in a home.  Sophia met with us and listened to everything we wanted and what we didn’t want and made every effort to show us as many properties as possible that met our stringent criteria.  Sophia was patient, personable and easy to work with and made us feel like we were always her number one priority.  Sophia’s knowledge of the New Jersey real estate market and personal touch helped us present an offer that couldn’t be refused for our new home and we will forever be grateful. Multiple bids on this house and Sophia was able to obtain the house for us.  We would recommend Sophia to anyone looking to buy a new home.  She is very dedicated to her clients.

    Very truly yours,

    Anthony and Christie Kurus and Family


    I was very confident when it came to choosing you as my realtor. A friend of mine had told me to make sure I interviewed a few agents before making a decision. I met you and knew that you were the one.  You were that person  who took a lot of time and always showed me how I competed in the market the whole time I was trying to sell my house. I appreciate all the continuous marketing you did on my home and got my house sold!  You were always professional and supportive and always available for consultation. When the offer did come in you advised me how to go about accepting the right offer. You were always very respectful of my feelings and I appreciated your patience.
    Sometimes I wondered how you put up with me. I really am so very greatful in meeting you.  You are a sweetheart of a person. I will definetly recommend you without a doubt. You are my realtor, Sophia!
    Much more success to you. Nicholas Real Estate you did a great job.
    Maureen Collazuol


    Sophia Constandinou was the agent on our first home purchase.  This was not a short journey at all, and in fact, Sophia remained by our side for almost two and a half years, nearly 100 homes and three emotional biddings.  We knew what we were looking for and didn't want to settle,  Sophia was extremely patient and understanding through the many ups and downs of the home buying process.
    The advice we received from Sophia was always unbiased.  You can tell that her main concern was making us feel comfortable and she had our best interest at hand always.  Being a first time home buyer, we had more questions than should be allowed to ask.  Never the less, Sophia remained professional through the whole process.
    Sophia is very knowledgable and her expertise came in handy when it came to selecting all of the specialists we needed after our bid was accepted.  We didn't realize how many people are involved before the closing date and Sophia was always there to keep us calm.  We had many ups and downs, but in the end, Sophia was the one we knew we could depend on to get the job done.
    We are extremely thankful for all her help and we love our new home and neighborhood. 
    We would gladly reecommend Sophia to all of our freinds.

    Dear Sophia,

     

    Iryna and I and our entire family would like to thank you for your help in the process of buying our first home, our dream home.  It is gratifying to meet someone dedicated to doing a fantastic job. Since the first day we met we felt welcomed. You helped us in every aspect of the home buying process.  We had worked with other realtors before but never have met a dedicated person as you. Your efforts are sincerely and greatly appreciated!

    Fondly,

    Iryna & Arben Qeramixhi 



    Sophia was very helpful and patient through the entire house hunting and closing process. She knew about the areas we visited and always made sure to get the proper information from the homeowners or other agents. Any time we needed her she was able to respond or meet us. She is friendly and persistent and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Sophia.
