The Stokes Family on Moving Day!
We recently sold our home at 1325 Seibert Road in Bellefonte and we are moving to Iowa for Jeff's new job. We are certainly going to miss all the beautiful mountain views and, of course, all our wonderful friends!
We want to share with you our experience of working with Nyssa Smith during the selling of our home. Quite simply, we highly recommend her to you should you ever need real estate services. I first met Nyssa through my friend Cindy and decided to call her when she sold our neighbor's house. I was extremely impressed with her professionalism and enthusiasm. When it came time for us to sell, I had no doubts about whom to call.
From day one, Nyssa put our needs first. She was always responsive and sympathetic, left no detail uncovered and had high standards of excellence. We have sold several homes in the past and never received this special kind of service.
Nyssa's knowledge of the real estate market is obvious. In this market, we were afraid our home would sit on the market a long time. Or worse yet, that it wouldn't sell at all! Plus we were concerned about moving twice if we got a buyer too soon. We didn't want to pull the girls out of school. Nyssa listened to our concerns and she strategized with us the best course of action for us to take. And everything that she said would happen did! We are so glad we listened. Her marketing skills are second to none. Her negotiating skills alone are worth every penny! We were thrilled with our experience. We sold our home quickly, for top dollar, and we got to stay until the girls finished their school year. So we will still be your neighbors for the next few months even though we've already closed. Ask Nyssa about it when you call her.
As a thank you to Nyssa for all she did for us, we're letting people know firsthand that she's been a wonderful resource. Call her personally at 814-883-8830. Or feel free to contact me so I can tell you personally about our experience of working with her.
Good luck in your own future endeavors!
Your (former) neighbor,
Jeff and Sarah Stokes

We wanted to take a moment to express how grateful we were to have met with you. Your professional, sincere and friendly demeanor put us both immediately at ease and added greatly to our “State College experience”. It was very clear that you knew and understood the market in your area and very important to us, you completely understood what our wants and needs were and then proceeded to show us properties exactly suited to what we had discussed.
We thank you for all your patience and wisdom. Should Jerry have decided to accept the position in Reedsville, we would have been delighted to move forward continuing to rely upon your services. We still talk about the condo on Windmere Road and can actually visualize ourselves living there had circumstances been different!
It was a pleasure meeting you. Thank you again for your professional and personal expertise. Our sincere best wishes for your continued success.
Marlene & Jerry Jennings
We highly recommend Nyssa Smith's services to anyone looking for a house. Here's how she found the property for us.
We met in July 2007 and discussed with her our plans to buy a house in State College. From this moment onwards everything went very smoothly. Nyssa showed us some houses to get an idea of the kind of house we like. This was great. We then went back to our home country, the Netherlands. Nyssa kept an eye out for a property that fit us. The house that we ultimately purchased was found by Nyssa for us. The house was not on the market yet. Nyssa's keen awareness made this happen for us.
At one of Nyssa's companies' sales meetings while we were in our home country, the property was announced by another agent in Nyssa's office. That agent mentioned about this home that was not listed yet was coming on the market. And it was not going to go into the MLS and it was not going to be publicly advertised at first because the sellers were not going to be moving out for some time because of their time table. As the listing agent described the property, it sounded so perfect to Nyssa for us. Not only did the house and the lot size fit our needs, it was in the neighborhood we told Nyssa we wanted. Also the price was in our price range and the timeframe of the seller was also a perfect fit for us and Nyssa knew this. Therefore, without delay, Nyssa toured the property for us since we could not be there personally to tour it. Nyssa immediately got in contact with us about the property because was such a perfect match. Again without delay, Nyssa did much research about the property for us so we could be completely informed. Then Nyssa went back to the property again for us. This time she took our friends who lived in the area. Later we were able to make the trip to town to see it personally. And Nyssa was finally able to show it personally to us. And she was right! We did love the house and we decided to move forward to write the offer.
Nyssa truly went above and beyond to assist us while we were not here personally. She helped us through the entire process, including the negotiations and paperwork. She patiently explained us how things work, which was very helpful because we didn't live in the US by then. We moved in a couple of months after the closing. It was great that she was there also for us during this period to keep an eye on the house and to answer all our questions.
We now live here with great joy. If it wasn't for Nyssa's keen awareness and personal interest in us and being able to use her sense of intuition, we might not have found our perfect home!
