Get to know Nick T Pappas
I was raised with the work ethic of doing my best and doing it with honesty, getting the job done and leaving things better than I found them. I admire those qualities in others and have surrounded myself with professionals of the highest caliber and integrity. I am currently a licensed Broker in Alabama and Illinois and firmly believe in treating clients and associates the way I want to be treated. Clients know, without question they are in capable hands and their needs always come first. Business associates know a hand shake is a done deal. My clients are my friends long after the transaction and their referrals tell me I'm doing something right.

I'm proud to say I've earned the National Association of Realtors CRS, ABR, SFR & ePro designations.
I really love working in Real Estate...for me, it would be tough to pick one area or aspect of the business over another to specialize in. I love it all and could not imagine doing anything else. From first time home buyers to the multi-property investor, they all have their own special challanges and rewards.
For the investor, a new property thickens the portfolio and ultimately (hopefully) is profitable...for him or her it's a business, no less rewarding or important.
The first time home buyer is different. While the investor has weathered many transactions, the first time buyer/seller look to the agent to help them navigate the real estate maze. This first dealing with a Realtor is very important to ther financial well being and is the best opportunity any Realtor will have to make a positive impression. To set a high professional standard by which the industry as a whole will be judged and expected to operate. I consider it a natural part of my job to treat clients so well that it would never enter their minds to remotely consider using another agent.

Working well with others to get the job done I've received many Cooperative Spirit and Core Value awards and have been top producer in my office. I have several Real Estate designations and continue to work on more.
As a Realtor you have to wear many hats, but knowing where to draw the line when asked about diciplines outside an area of expertise is a must. I consider my best skill set as the ability to see both sides of a transaction bringing that transaction to a successful end and a win-win for both. The ability to negotiate on behalf of my clients best interest and staying calm in any situation is my focus, my client and all others in the transaction are better served when egos don't get in the way!

We had a wonderful experience with Nick. With Nick we were able to purchase the house we really wanted even after viewing several others. He always made time for us which made us feel we were his top priority. We highly recommend Nick with @Homes Realty Group.

Recommendation for Nick Pappas :
My husband and I were first-time home buyers and newly married when we began looking for a house to buy in the Huntsville area. My husband is from the UK, and I am not from the area. We first began looking into renting an apartment, and then began looking at possibly building a home with one of the many home builders in the area. We were with another realtor and very unhappy. Our realtor at the time was pressuring us to buy with a particular home builder, and on many occasions never showed up to appointments to see other houses, which we had found on our own. To make a long story short, we started doing some research on not only this particular home builder our realtor was pushing us towards, but also on the realtor him/herself. As it turned out, the realtor had written him/herself an unheard of commission amount into our contract, on top of other un-discussed fees. In addition, the home builder the realtor was adamant we purchase from was, and still is, one of the lowest rated, and has the lowest resale value in the area. Needless to say, we immediately canceled our contract with the realtor. This experience left us jaded, and we decided to put off buying a home for a while.
Light at the end of the tunnel
Eventually, my husband began doing extensive research again on all of the local realty companies in the north Alabama area. That’s when he came across @Homes Realty Group. My husband called Elizabeth Golden, the owner, directly and told her about our previous ordeal. We wanted a realtor who would protect us this time around and listen to our concerns. We wanted someone of the highest moral/professional caliber. Elizabeth immediately placed us with Nick Pappas. I cannot say enough good things about Nick. He is someone we now consider to be our good friend. Nick is always early for appointments, and thoroughly researches every home he shows. If we sent Nick a list of a dozen homes on Friday we wanted to see on Saturday, Nick would make it happen. Nick probably showed us almost a hundred homes in the greater Huntsville area. Nick deserves a medal for his patience! Nick never glazed over any details and is always brutally honest, which is refreshing! At every house we viewed, Nick made a point to show us not only the good points/features, but all of the bad flaws/downfalls. Nick always had time for us, always made us feel important, and we were always his highest priority. Also, everyone at @Homes Realty were always warm and welcoming when we stopped by the office. We eventually found the house of our dreams and Nick was there for us every step of the way. Nick’s service doesn’t stop at your signing day; Nick is always there for us when we need his advice on anything from insurance to handymen. I would highly recommend Nick Pappas and @Homes Realty to anyone who is looking for to buy or sell a home in the Huntsville area. If we ever sell our house, Nick is our guy!

"Nick is a joy to work with. He worked diligently to find exactly what we wanted in our dream home. His constant updates and walkthroughs of potential homes let me know that he was working hard to find exactly what and where we wanted to live. I plan on using him again when I'm ready to sell and buy again."
Nick Pappas was our realtor in the spring of 2008. My husband and I met Nick at a open house and and later called him about showing us homes. Nick worked with us diligently to find the best home for our budget . I would often send Nick a email list of homes I found on the MLS list requesting more information .He always get me that info right away not days later. He would show us homes day,night weekends whenever we wanted.Sometimes even going back to properties of interest 2-3 times . If I was curious about something with the property without even asking Nick would take it upon himself to call the listing agant and try to get answers to those curiosities.He showed us anything we wanted he didnt try to sway us toward one over another. He worked with us when gas was $4.00/gallon and everything we wanted to see was out of town. He was always kind and very professional. When we got together to see homes Nick would always have a clip board ready for me with MLS sheets on each property so I would have a reference and be able to make notes on each home. Should our real estate needs change I would definetly call him again. Hes a good realtor and a good guy.--C&C Smith
"Nick Pappas is hands down the best Realtor with whom I have ever worked. I needed to relocate for my job to an area I had never even visited before. I had 5 days to make the biggest purchase of my life and Nick was with me every step of the way. There was always an immediate response, no matter how many questions I asked him. Nick went above and beyond to assuage every fear, every doubt and to smooth every bump in the road to make it as easy on me as possible. Great Realtor, great man, I am a life long client!"---S. French
