"Living 3,000 miles away with a very unique situation, I needed to find the best short sale specialist and real estate agent in the SF Bay Area. After extensive research led me to Vickie, just one phone call confirmed that I had found the right person. From the beginning she provided an unbiased assessment of my situation, while educating and guiding me through the entire short sale process. Vickie and her highly skilled team proved invaluable many times over with their sense of urgency, organization, strong working relationship with my bank, and in working side-by-side with my buyer's agent to ensure she and her buyer knew what to do, and when, so all of the pieces were able to come together before the final deadline. It is because of Vickie and her team that I am now able to move on with my life and career. I strongly believe that without Vickie and her team, I would not have had a successful outcome." --- Jennifer, Seller in San Ramon
"I used Vickie to help us with our short sale and found her and her team to be extremely knowledgeable. She was very responsive and made what could have been a difficult situation much easier. By handling the filing, paperwork, and procedural aspects of our transaction, it was an area of our short sale we didn't have to stress about. Closing the short sale was much faster than I expected and I am grateful for her help." --- Jeff, Seller inWindemere in San Ramon
"Vickie Nagy will definitely work hard for you. She is proactive and persevering, with the right contacts and work ethic to get results. Through the long Short Sale process, Vickie stuck by my side every step-of-the-way. She gave me an honest up-front assessment, de-conflicted the many pieces of information that are out there, and presented everything in a much more comprehensible manner. Best of all, she and her support staff were the ones to directly liase with the buyer's agent and the banks, leaving me with no worries and more time to focus on my future." --- Joseph, Seller in Copper Ridge in San Ramon
"Vickie Nagy without a doubt is the BEST Realtor I've personally ever worked with and I've sold 9 homes! Her expertise and up to date knowledge of the industry is second to none! Vickie's communication both written and verbal is the gold standard for home owners during this important transaction/experience!" - - - Greg, Seller
"Vickie was a patient and supportive realtor through the grueling process of viewing properties, writing offers, and closing on my property. She was on top of every task each step of the way and took a lot of the pressure off of me. She spent countless hours (especially on my first offer!) explaining each document that I had to sign and any questions that I asked (over and over I'm sure :)) She has TREMENDOUS knowledge of how to approach each type of property whether its a traditional sale, short sale, or foreclosure, which is vital in today's housing market. I learned a wealth of knowledge from Vickie about the differences and intricacies involved in purchasing my home and would not have survived this process without her support and expertise. I would highly recommend her as a professional realtor and will most likely use her services when I'm ready to buy my next home!" August 24, 2009 Top qualities: Great Results , Expert , High Integrity - - - Angela Serra, Buyer, Pleasanton, hired Vickie as a Real Estate Agent in 2009
"Vickie went above and beyond in arranging for viewings, finding us a home to our strict specifications and budget, making phone calls to ensure our offer would be accepted, being available at our convenience for paperwork, and in the transaction process.From our understanding, short sales hardly ever run this smoothly. We couldn't have done this as first time home buyers without her assistance." - - - Matthew & Cheryl, Buyers
"Your extensive knowledge helped in selling our home very fast. You are a marketing pro with great personality.- - - Neeta, Seller
"This is to attest to the courteous, competent, and complete professional service received from Vickie Nagy in completion of my real estate transaction in the fall of 2006. This began with Vickie professionally determining what kind of properties we were interested in and picking us up to show us several listings. During this time she also gave an excellent guided tour of the area. Rather than just closing the sale on the property we chose, she pointed out all of the pros and cons and waited patiently for our decision. There was never a feeling of being pushed or rushed, which was greatly appreciated. During the negotiation she provided strong professional guidance, being sure that we were getting what we thought was an excellent buy. We felt like she was a true partner! After the contract, she nurtured the deal through some difficulties and was the main force in holding things together when things appeared to be doomed at the 11th hour. We found Vickie to be not only the epitome of professional competence in the business of realty, but also outstanding in the personal relations of leading neophytes through that maze. From alpha to omega, each different area appeared to be her strength, I am pleased to give Vickie the highest recommendation there is!" - - - Michael, Buyer
"After meeting with you and following your advice, you sold my house in a few days. This was after two other agents had wasted a year of my time." - - - Gary, Seller
"Vickie went way beyond the call of duty as a Realtor, even showing us a house on Christmas Eve. As our advocate she guided us all during the buying process and gave us peace of mind over all the traumatic details that are so troublesome to a first time home buyer. Her expertise with the various computer databases and programs allowed us to effortlessly receive and review a multitude of properties we would not have been aware of. She coordinated all the home buying activities and followed through on the details. Her always pleasant personality, openness, honesty and enthusiasm, complimented her thorough knowledge of the local real estate market and processes. We feel she did an outstanding job, not just "selling´ but looking out for our needs and requirements, adjusting to our time schedule. We know she really cared and had our interests at heart and that working together wasn´t all about the last dollar, but helping use find a home. We wish her the best of luck and give her our sincere "thanks." - - Will and Marian, Buyers
"This letter has been a long time in coming, but I want to take a minute and let you know how much Randy and I appreciate everything you did to help us with the sale of our house. Selling your home is always an emotional and nerve wracking experience. Added to this was the surprise finding of major damage done to our home due to extremely faulty construction 14 years ago. Your professionalism, knowledge, and genuine care and concern brought us through the difficult times when we didn't know who to call, or what direction to go in. We found ourselves relying on you for much more than I think any other realtor would be willing to do. It would have been much easier for you to just let us fend for ourselves, but you did soooooo much more. Your help in finding solutions when Randy and I thought there were none, and your support during times that were often personally hard for you, enabled us to actually move into our new home." - - - Liz,Seller
"We were extremely high maintenance home buyers--so much so that we had to actually shop for an agent that could tolerate our many demands coupled with our limited budget. Vickie Nagy not only met our demands, but surpassed our expectations and reminded us that there are actually people out there that care for real and are not just interested in the sale. I guarantee you, if Vickie Nagy was able to find us a home that we loved within our limited financial budget, she is the best agent for anyone looking for a home, and of this, I am absolutely certain!" - - - Rick and Heydy, Buyers
"There is a whole new group of potential home owners there that are so lucky to have you on their team. You are such a blessing, Vickie B.!!" - - - Liz & Randy, Seller
"I would like to take a moment to thank you for all of your help! David and I love our new home. You really identified our needs and found not only the perfect location, but theperfect home in our price range!! We are all moved in and extremely happy!"- - - Amber and David, Buyers
"Thank you for all the time and effort on your part on my behalf! Your patience and professional manner were greatly appreciated." - - - Elaine, Buyer
"Wow! Vickie you are a dynamo! You helped me prepare and showcase my home to sell for fast results and it worked; for full price!" - - - Steve, Seller
"Thanks for all the hard work in marketing our home. It really paid off when we got full appraised value." - - - John and Sherry, Sellers
Thank you so very much for your help renting. I know you've tried your best for selling but market did not support us. Please keep in touch, when time gets little better we will try again, and you will be my Realtor(r) because I found you are one of the best professionals out there. - - - Mohammed, Landlord
"You really are a ‘full service' realtor! Thanks a million!" - - - Jim, Seller
"Thank you for the manner in which helped us old people. You made our condominium hunt enjoyable, your patience's helped us to buy just what we wanted and what I needed. Wish you Lots of success." - - - Ed & Marie, Buyers
"If Re/Max has a Customer Service Award for Realtors, I would nominate you. You made my time with you interesting, informative and your personality makes you one of the best Realtors I have ever dealt with." - - - Debbie, Buyer
"We have the highest praise for Vickie, after our experience working with her. She was tremendously helpful in finding a house for my daughter and her husband during their move from the UK. When we first started the search, I wrote to a number of agents listed in the area and Vickie was the only one who responded quickly and with lots of preliminary details. As a result, we decided to go with her as our agent. Our search covered about 5 months, involved three major trips to the area, viewing many houses, some changes in specifications, but at last our daughter and son-in-law found exactly what they wanted. They are now happily situated in their new home. This search involved a lot of time and hard work for Vickie, but throughout she was patient, diligent and very accommodating to our needs. She communicates well, and provided us with very objective assessments and inputs on the local housing, builders and community environment. This was really helpful to us in making the final decision. She also gave us good direction on local banks and mortgage lenders and we used one of her recommendations. The closing went very smoothly, with Vickie arranging all the various inspections and communications as we were not on site. Again, nothing but praise for Vickie. We appreciated her efforts on our behalf. We would recommend her to anyone as their agent." - - - Austin & Helen,Buyers
"I would like to thank you for all your efforts as well as accommodating my last minute request to assist with my home purchase. My deadline required that I had 5 days to locate a home, and you exceeded my expectations by clearing your calendar and working one on one with me until my home was located. Your knowledge of the area, restaurants and schools made a "newbie" feel at ease in new surroundings. Thank you for your expertise and professionalism. It's something that is found few and far between these days." - - - Denise & Ralph, Buyers
"With sincere gratitude I´m writing you this quick note to thank you for time, effort, and tenacity. If it wasn´t for your persistence my family would never have had the home of our dreams. You aren´t just a realtor, I´ve had realtors and none of them ever put forth the energy towards my family as you have. In a relative short time you have become not just a realtor to me but a consoler, financial assistant, social worker, and most importantly a friend. Who knew you would wear so many hats? To anyone else who reads this please know and understand that Vickie Nagy is more than a professional, or friend, she becomes a part of the family. She looks for things you wouldn´t and asking the questions you don´t. Always keeping your best interest at heart, I´ve spoken to her at 6:30 in the morning as well as 11 at night. She was my partner through everything. One can´t ask for anything more. I can´t put into mere words how much you have done for me and my family. We all thank you and looking for your help when I go to purchase again. If there anything I can do for you please don´t hesitate to ask."- - Roger & Family, Buyers
"I just wanted to let you know how happy Linda and I are with the new house! If felt like home the first time you showed it to us! We both tremendously appreciate all of your hard work and efforts in helping us with our new home. It is not often that you meet someone and just click with the personalities and comforts; and you did with us! Your dedication to ensure that we were happy with everything that was going on was wonderful. You impressed us from the first correspondence and we knew then that you would be there for us every step of the way! It was you and you alone that helped to make our transition to Florida so pleasant. We thank you for that! We both are proud to call you our friend!"- - - Gabbi and Linda , Buyers
"Thanks again for everything that you did for us! You're great!" - - Rachel and Rob, Buyers
"I appreciate your support and if I can serve as a reference, please do not hesitate. It's makes such a difference working with a Class Act (you of course)."- - Tom, Landlord
"If you are looking for a car sales man-like realtor then Vickie Nagy is not for you. If, like we did, you are looking for someone who knows the ropes, has your interests at heart, is professional AND trustworthy then look no further (even if you did, this combination is hard to find). As first-time home buyers and coming from different countries, my husband and I were very lucky and happy to connect with Vickie. We wanted someone who could guide us through the process without forcing us into making a quick offer nor setting a deadline. Vickie patiently, showed us every property we wanted to see and always took the time to answer ALL of our questions and then some, including providing helpful home improvement and maintenance advice. Vickie Nagy has that special combination of skills that sets her apart from other realtors, we strongly recommend her!" - - - Gabriela, Buyer, hired Vickie as a Real Estate Agent in 2009
"There are not enough superlatives to describe our recent home buying experience with Vickie. We went through an extremely complicated and exhausting transaction which last 6 months from contract to close. Our deal, and it was one heck of a deal thanks to Vickie, looked dead on 2 different occasions. Vickie was able to save it not once but twice through her creativity, persistence and experience. We absolutely love our new home and are so grateful we choose Vickie as our agent because it never would have happened without her." - - - Michael, Buyer, hired Vickie as a Real Estate Agent in 2009
