Testimonials

Nina and Natalie,
We wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help in selling our condo.  I don't think any of us expected such a long process :) and we really appreciate all of your kind, thorough, and diligent help.  You were always so incredibly responsive which really helped provide us with peace of mind throughout the process.  We sincerely appreciate all that you did.

Ali and Jeramie

"YEA!!!  Thanks, Nina, especially for the sage bidding advice which enabled us to win it." 

David D

"Wow, guess this means we're done!! Thanks VERY much for all the incredible work, handholding, and GREAT result! More soon! " 

D and A

"Truly, I have no proper words to thank both of you for an incredible job. I am not naive about what a difficult and arduous deal this was, and I am 100% certain that no other agents could have handled it with such aplomb and grace. Your expertise, professionalism, and patience were exceptional, and I learned so much from you in the process! Especially being so far away, I can't begin to express my gratitude and how much I appreciate all that you did for me." 

Mary S

"Nina and Natalie did wonderful work for us on our purchase and our sale. We are so glad we chose Nina and would work with her again in a heartbeat. Beyond the obvious benefits of her extensive experience, what we appreciated most about working with Nina was the quality of her communication and advice. Conversations were effective and efficient and we always felt that we were connecting with her on all the issues. She listened to us well, and always had solid reasoning for her points of view. For example, when choosing stagers, she brought in two great options and to help make the decision she looked at selling price vs. listing price of past sales to see if one stager was yielding better results than the other. Because she was involved in so many transactions in the area she had our full confidence that she was choosing the right offer price for our property at that moment." 

Eric S

"Truly, thank you, for your expertise, dedication, and excellent humor in this whole process. I couldn't be happier." 

Hol

"Dear Nina,
Thanks very much for your assistance in selling our home! Throughout the process, you gave us honest advice, worked tirelessly to solicit buyers, did an excellent job negotiating the sale price and contract, all while staying committed to the promises made during the interview process. 
As you know, we interviewed several top 1% agents when deciding who to trust with this very important transaction. Your entire team handled the sale with integrity and care. Your understanding of our needs and wants were greatly appreciated and we are so glad we chose you - it was the single most important and best decision we made in the whole process." 

Amit

"Nina,
it was amazing how quickly you sold the apt. bldg. Your marketing of the apt was fabulous. I consider you a miracle worker and you, Natalie and Courtney make a great team. Thank you so much." 

Lynn

"It was a pleasure working with you all, great team work, very efficient, easy and clear communications. Thank you for your hard work..." 

Bella and Mark

"We are very grateful to you all. Your marketing advice was sound, the marketing materials you prepared were truly beautiful (we'd love a digital set of the photos, if that's possible), you made sure we had excellent market coverage (the feature in the Chronicle was tremendous), you all must have endured several dozen showings, and you stuck with us over nearly a year of twists and turns. Ours was a complicated property and this remains a tough environment, so thank you all for your efforts to get us to a successful closing! " 

Steve H

"You gals did an amazing job. Thank you!" 

Adam C

"Dear Nina and Natalie,
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for helping us buy our house on the Great Highway. We are so happy here and couldn't have done it without you. We loved working with you and really appreciated your professionalism and efficiency. " 

Sarah

"Hi Nina and Natalie,
Belated but most sincere thanks for all your hard work over the last six months.  I am thrilled with my condo and cannot wait to move in when the tenants leave.  You guys were amazing and I will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks me for a realtor in SF! 
Thanks again. " 

Julie

"Nina, 
Thank you for all of your dedicated and diligent efforts on our behalf. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you, and as you can imagine, we will serve as a extremely satisfied customer reference whenever you want. Thank you." 

S

"If the real estate world offered a Nobel prize, Nina Hatvany and her team undoubtedly deserve it! Nina and her team handled the staging of our home, created a multi-faceted strategy campaign for selling our property, and designed a fully integrated end-to-end marketing campaign with which to execute this strategy. In parallel, Nina began working her deep network of contacts to personally locate qualified buyers. As a result, through Nina's experience and heroic efforts, we received a list price, all cash offer the first day we were on the market! We completely closed the transaction, including all co-op approvals, in less than three weeks. Nina's entire team was wonderfully professional, exceptionally competent, continually responsive. Their service model is exceptionally well-designed and works efficiently and seamlessly. Nina is the top agent in San Francisco for a reason: she is a consummate expert in every aspect of the business. We cannot recommend her highly enough! " 

Allison and Kirk

"Victor and I also want to take this time to thank you and Natalie for your help and advice throughout the process. You both have been such a pleasure to work with and we certainly look forward to working with you again in the future (though I'm hoping we won't have to move for awhile after this move!). We wish you continued success.
Kind regards," 
Cynthia

"I second that! Great work. We really appreciated your advice and perspectives throughout the process." 
Victor

 

Cynthia and Vincent

"We are also congratulating ourselves for being wise enough to choose you and your team to represent us. Well done! " 

Michael and Jenny

"We were looking for the right real estate agent and happened upon Nina's sign a couple of blocks from our house. She came over mere days before Natalie's wedding, and we knew she would be great for us. She sold our home in what a friend called 'a minute and a half', and found our new condo. 
Here's what we liked best about Nina's work:
--Timely responses to phone calls and emails; we felt that we were her only clients;
--Sense of proportion--a setback was not a tragedy;
--The team included Natalie and Courtney, so someone was always there;
--Excellent recommendations--painter, stager, contractor, mover--and when the first painter's bid was too high, she got a second one out right away." 

Barbara and Mike

Many thanks. Couldn't have done it without you! Really appreciate all the hard work of Team Hatvany."

Mike

"Hi Nina,
I just wanted you and Natalie to know how much I enjoyed working with all of you. Your professionalism yet relaxed style of doing business was both refreshing and most appreciated. I very much hope to do other transactions with you and your team in the months and years ahead. It was such a pleasure."

Joe

"Thanks so much. As I said to Nina on the phone last night, it has been an absolute pleasure working with you. You probably don't need more but we will be a great reference." 

Eric and Jenni

"Nina and Natalie,
Thank you for helping us find the perfect property! It has been a great experience working with you and your team. You have been extremely patient and understanding through our crazy moments. Thank you!"

Naman and Priya

"Your determination and skill, expertise and candor are great gifts for which we are very grateful. Thank you again." 

Peggy

"Nina, Thank you so much for all your help. It has all been a bit of a whirl-wind but you made it all seem very seamless. Grace under pressure. Yes, monies have been received, so all is well. We will recommend you to any of our friends who decide to buy or sell.
Thank you and your wonderful team."

Patrick and Jennifer

"Thank you for all of your help on this house purchase. We really appreciate all of your advice, information, referrals and fun sense of humor. Hope to keep in touch." 

Beti

"Let me just say how happy I am with the level of service you provided during the purchase of our new home.  As a veteran of many real estate transactions as both buyer and seller, I can say that you provided the best service I've experienced from an agent and you truly fulfilled your role as a strong advocate for us during what turned out to be a somewhat complicated transaction."

Ryan

"Thank you Nina!  We really enjoyed working with you, and the process was as smooth as promised...we're a fan of your approach and style!" 

Mark and Rosanna

"Thanks very much for all your help! Our friends told us often as we explained the ups and downs of the deal that we were very lucky to have an agent we could trust. Indeed we were. Now, anyone want to come over and help paint?" 

Ray

"I truly appreciate your expertise, your exceptional teamwork and attention to every detail. My heartfelt thanks." 

Marilyn

"Once again, as we said at the closing, thank you for your creative, persistent, and straight-ahead professionalism during the marketing and transaction of our house. While we are excited to begin the next chapter of life closer to our roots, we are increasingly sad to leave San Francisco. But we know this feeling was inevitable. I hope our paths will cross again and we wish you continued success as the market here ever improves. You know you can always count on our enthusiastic endorsement!"

Mark and Gretchen

"We sincerely appreciate all of your guidance, advice, help and honesty throughout this process. You are an absolute pleasure to work with."

Kyra and Travis

Carol C

"I could not have been more pleased with your professionalism, extra effort, and diligence in helping make this transaction work. Please feel free to use me as a reference at any time."

Philip B

"Amy and I are so excited about our new home. Thanks so much for all of the hard work. Our experience with you was truly fantastic. Balancing buying a home with planning a wedding is a bit like a high wire act and I'm certain that your efforts helped us be successful on both fronts. We look forward to working together when we're ready for the next move."

John J

"Dear Nina, Thanks to you for the excellent representation. You were as professional as can be, plus sober, transparent, honest and nice. I will refer others and am happy to serve as a reference for you."

John C and Tina V

"Thank you both so much for your help! I really appreciated having an amazing team on my side that I could count on for sound advice and assistance. You're both wonderful, and I hope to work with you again in the future."

James

"THANKS SO MUCH Nina for all your incredible professional assistance and, importantly, friendship!!! You accomplished what I thought could never be done so quickly, and I can leave my very special, beloved home with the smoothest of transitions."

 

Scott

"Thank you for your perseverance, support, advice, and staying by our side. What a journey this has been for us." 

Leslie

"I can't say enough about Nina's goal oriented sales program. The marketing was top notch and the follow up was immediate. Both she and Natalie surpassed our expectations." 

Raul

"Dear Nina and team, We wanted to thank you for your incredible assistance though the house buying process. At the start I remembered thinking how complex it was and then it only got crazier. We were so lucky to be in such experienced hands which I believe is the only reason the sale went through for us and on terms we wanted. Thanks so much." 

Kate

"You guys have done such incredible work for us and we're so grateful. It's been a challenging 58 days, but here we are... and we're thrilled."

Kate T

"We are deeply appreciative of all the effort you and your team put in to help us sell our apartment. Yours is TRULY high class service. Thank you." 

Guarav and Tara

"I couldn't be happier that I chose you and Natalie to act as my agents. You are consummate professionals who have done a terrific job. I hope that this will be the start of a long and transaction-rich relationship."

Lawrence

"Thank you both so much for helping us find and buy our home. It was such a smooth process and we couldn't be happier. We are confident that we ended up in the house that is perfect for us. Nina, thank you for being patient with us during our long search and for always guiding us in the right direction."

Elana and Sean

"We would like to thank you for the exceptional work which you did recently in representing us on the sale of our Cow Hollow Home. We had tried to sell the house a few years earlier with a different agent and that process had been unsuccessful, so this was no "slam dunk" assignment. The first decision we made was about which stagers to use. You found us exceptional stagers who actually cost less than what we had paid the previous time, and who also delivered a much better outcome. With the staging behind us, we took your advice about how to price the property and about how to negotiate, and the house was on and off the market in much less time than we initially expected. Your attention to detail and availability at all hours enabled us to get the transaction finalized very quickly. Thank you for everything."

David and Inger

"You are doing such an excellent job.. and we could not be happier to have you as our agent. Your updates, outlook, strategy style and encouragement are unsurpassable. We feel very lucky."

Casey

"Thank you...for your brilliance in handling this sale. It's clear that your track record of success is based on not just intelligence but sensitivity and common sense." 

Lily

"Thank you for helping us sell this property and for making it such a smooth process. It's a bit hard to believe that it went so easy. I know you worked hard behind the scenes to ensure that there were no hiccups. Thank you!"

Denise

"We're still spoiled by the new house. Happy as kittens here. Thank you again for taking great care of everything, top to bottom, with us this year. We've worked with many agents over many states and moves these past several years. You've the best of them all, and that's saying a lot. If ever we have people we can put in touch with you, they're coming your way. If we can ever praise you to potential clients or coworkers, we'll gladly do so."

Robert and Jennifer

I just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you so much for executing this transaction for us…

I deal with lots of professionals in my job, and I can safely say that I rarely get to deal with people who are so at the top of their game as both of you.

We will go out of our way to send business to both of you.

Thank you so much.

 

Jeremy and Kate

Nina and Natalie,
First, THANK YOU for all you did to make this house happen.  We couldn't be more THRILLED with the house and working with you throughout the process.  So THANKS!

Thank you very much for all your help in finding me my home in San Francisco. Your professionalism, competency and empathy delivered a flawless outcome efficiently and effectively. I am grateful and will enthusiastically recommend you to all my friends and colleagues. 

 

Adrianna M

We wanted to thank you for all of your help and hard work around the sale of 1410. It was a delight working with you and the team.  Thank you so much!

We look forward to referring friends your way. And hopefully we'll be buyers again at some point. 

 

Ak and Vince

Nina and Natalie,
Thank you so much for making it such a smooth process for us and really taking care of all of the details around the listing and sale of the condo.  You really took the stress out of the transaction and provided some timely and valuable advice along the way.

 

Armin

After years of investment projects in SF, we are finally settled into our new place on the other side of the country.  Thank you, and thank you to your team, for selling our lovely house in SF and for enabling us to come back to NYC.  Nina, you are really the best in all things RE and we couldn’t have done it without you. 

 

Bea and Larry

I want to thank you and your team (Natalie and Paul) for making this such a smooth process.  It's less stressful to sell an investment property than the family home, but it's still a big deal.  You made it easy with your contacts to prep the place, stage it and sell it so quickly and successfully.  I know it's not over until closing, but we are almost there and I wanted to express Dan's and my appreciation.

 

Bonnie and Dan

Excellent!

Thanks so much Nina! You did exactly what you said. And super quick.

Cheers all around!

 

Dan and Jill

Well, the dust has cleared, the sale officially official and we are thrilled! I just wanted to thank all of you for your expertise, professionalism and diligence in making this happen. It was not only the amount we anticipated (and then some), it happened right away, a mere 36 hours after listing! You obviously knew what you were doing all along. We certainly couldn't have hoped for a simpler process. 

If any SF friends ask, we'll enthusiastically recommend your team to represent them. 

 

Dan and Jill

Thanks so much, Nina and Natalie for all your help with the process (and the closing gift)!

It's been terrific to work with you -- we've really appreciated your professionalism, counsel, and help navigating the process, and are thrilled to start our lives in the new home.  Michelle A. was absolutely right in her enthusiastic reference, which we're of course happy to pass to along to anyone else too.

Thanks again -- we'll definitely be in touch!

 

 

 

Dan H

You and Natalie have been incredible in the way you have helped steer us through this crazy housing market. It is very easy for us to understand how you have developed the reputation and standing as the premier SF real estate team. 

Thank you for taking all of our calls, listening to us vent, and most importantly, giving us the confidence that we are making a good decision for our future. 

 

David and Sarah

Vicki and I just wanna say thank you thank you thank you! We absolutely love our new home on Vallejo. You thought of it you found it you showed us to it and we're living here now and we absolutely love it. Thank you Nina

David and Vicki

Fantastic! Thank you, Nina, for all that you did to help here. You were absolutely terrific! 

 

Doug M

Thanks to you, Team Marvelous for your thorough, diligent and diplomatic work on the many facets of this sale.

 

EL

I am very happy that you represented me!  If anyone needs reference, I would always be delighted to give one!

Stay in touch.

 

Emiko

Nina and Natalie,
We are slowly unpacking and already feel so thrilled with our new home.  It has been a long road for us considering we were looking for a home before we left NY 4 years ago and then looking again since arriving in SF in 2012 but we feel like all that waiting brought us exactly the home we had dreamed of.
We really believe that we never would have gotten our home without the two of you.  You are such a fantastic team, really covering all the bases and making us have faith that your team would get the right deal done.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and will, of course in the future refer our friends to you as they will be excellent hands.
Thanks again.

 

Emily and Matt

We so look forward - and I really mean it, for your ability, professionalism, colleagues/family - to working with *you* again soon. 

 

F and J

Hi Nina & Natalie, 

 Bill & I are grateful for your help with our "pied a terre".  We're pleased that we accomplished our goal of a well-priced, nicely -sized condominium in a great location which couldn't have happened without your assistance.  

Until next time ... best wishes, 

 

GAY

Nina, Natalie,

We wanted to say a huge thank you again for finding us our dream home! We can't quite believe the house is ours, it's amazing. It wasn't the easiest of deals to make work, and without you on our side, I can't imagine how it would have happened. Your experience, professionalism and expertise made the whole process as smooth and painless as possible, and it was such a pleasure working with your both. Thank you for everything!

Gillian and David

Thank you for all your hard work in getting the house on the market and sold so quickly! It was a pleasure working with you all and I hope our paths cross again. It couldn't have been a more seamless experience.

 

Gina and Dave

Thank you sooo much...amazing job here...I can see how you are #1...

Gregg

Thank you for all your hard work and finding the buyer! You are a delight to
work with and I feel very lucky to have you represent us! I appreciate your
help and attention to all the details, as well as getting repairs done and
house cleaned! What seemed like a daunting task turned out to be do -able!
Thank you again, Nina,

Heidi


Nina, Natalie and Paul:  I second Heidi's comments.  We are very happy
clients!


Susan

Heidi C and Susan B

Hi Nina and Natalie, now that the dust has settled a bit, I wanted to thank you for all your efforts on the sale of Washington Street.  It was Herculean task and I could not be more pleased.  I have been singing your praises to friends and clients alike and I am sure our paths will cross again.

 

 

Hilary

Thank you so much for your hard work, professionalism and patience.

We were lucky to have you there to  guide us through this gruelling process, and greatly appreciate all the time, effort and energy you and your team gave us.

 

 

Ian and Britt

Thank you again for all your help in this transaction. I really enjoyed working with you and appreciated your guidance and patience as we moved through our first home purchase. I felt like I learned more in the past 8 weeks than I've learned in a year in my own career.

 

Jay and Lauren

Dear Nina, Natalie and Paul,

Thank you all for your tireless work toward our home sale. We really appreciate the marketing, hard work, eagle eyes to details and active communication you put forth with us together. Put us in the "highly referenceable clients" category (aka raving fans).

Warm regards,

 

 

Jennifer and Rob

Thanks for all your help - our 4th and possibly our last in this generation SF Hatvany transaction... 

Definitely had a lasting impact on the quality of our SF lifestyle... 

 

Jeremy and Kate

Nina, Natalie - it's been wonderful working with both of you! We'll hopefully refer you many clients over the coming years. Thanks again for helping us to find our dream apartment!

 

John and Christina

We could not recommend Nina Hatvany more highly.  We have worked together on 7 or 8 transactions with Nina over the years and are convinced that no one is better in San Francisco.
We first met Nina at the recommendation of the CEO of First Republic Bank years ago.  First Republic Bank deals with all of the top brokers in the City, and in his mind, she was his top recommendation.
Not only is Nina astute and thoughtful, but she is always responsive and a delight to work with. We have become very good friends over the years.  Nina has a PhD in Psychology from Stanford and puts it to good use in her business and negotiations.
Please feel free to contact us.  Best of luck with the sale of your home—you are in good hands with Nina. 

Kathy S

And, thank you even more for your knowledge, encouragement and skill in getting the transaction closed.  I’m only now breathing out as it just didn’t seem possible that we could actually close the sale in time.  Your experience and help really made the difference.  

 

Ken and Emily

Dear Nina,

We appreciate your guidance, professionalism, and patience over the year. It was a pleasure to work with you, and thank your for the hardwork during the diligence period.

Warmest regards,

Kim and Eisar

Thanks so much guys - we really enjoyed working with you and would highly recommend you to others.

Who knows, maybe we can do it again soon :)

 

M and M

You are the absolute best real estate professional I have ever met or had the blessing of working with! 

Patrick

Thanks again for all your help with this deal, you really made a difference and I’m very happy we teamed up.

PAUL D

Dear Paul, Natalie and Nina,

Apologies for the late note, but Chris and I wanted to thank the three of you and your wonderful team for all of the time, effort, and energy you put in to helping us find the perfect home! We are so happy on 24th street, and feel incredibly lucky and grateful to have had your guidance along the way. Thanks again for working so efficiently on our behalf!

All the best to you, your team, and your family.

Piper and Chris

Thank you again for all your support on this transaction.

A very complicated deal given the nature of the owner, challenging tenants, a house that needs lots work with no plans on file, etc.!!

Your experience and business acumen were extremely helpful.

All the best,

 

Quentin

Nina, thank you.  You and your team had made this a wonderful  experience.

Raul J and Maria

Thanks for being my agent and for a job well done! I enjoyed working with you and hope to have reason to in the future.

 

Roger K

You both have been the greatest to work with. Sanjay and I can't thank you
enough, and we couldn't be happier with our new home!

Sanjay and Sejal

Great outcome.  Thanks to you, Natalie and Paul.  What could have otherwise been a fairly cumbersome and risky interim period having purchased prior to selling turned out to be a breeze.  Always a pleasure to work with each of you. 

Scott G

Dear Nina,
Not easy to combine number of sales with knowledge,style,compassion and elegance, but yet Nina you really do do it!
With heart felt gratitude,

 

Sharon

Thanks everyone…. I am thrilled with the result of all your hard work.    Susan was right when she extolled the virtues of working with Nina and Natalie.  No comparison to anyone I’ve ever worked with before.  

 

SUSAN K

Nina Hatvany is a fabulous real estate agent!  I can't recommend her highly enough.  My husband and I have worked with many agents over the years and, while we think of ourselves as nice people (!), we can be quite specific about what we like and in negotiating about price and other details.  Nina was excellent at all of it.  She's a great listener, readily grasped what was important to us, applied her exceptional experience and strategic skills in negotiating, and was just truly delightful to work with.
