You gave us great advice every step of the way, you negotiated a great price on our house, and you were responsive all the time…we never felt like other clients or business would impact on your attention to us.
5 stars for Nick and Barbara Lymberis!
We recently sold my Mother In Law's home in Sunnyvale, at 1386 Pauline Drive, through Nick and Barbara Lymberis. They were simply outstanding in every aspect.
We were selling an older home that had a lot of deferred maintenance and a number cosmetic issues and we knew we had some work to do. But knowing what to do and what not do to get the best selling price was a challenge for us.
We trusted Nick and Barbara's recommendations regarding maintenance and cosmetic upgrades. They made suggestions and we listened.
So what did they recommend? Exterior paint in contemporary colors, Interior paint in a very light tint, paint old kitchen cabs white in and out, new vinyl floors, refinish HW floor, replace light fixtures, minor landscaping and new roof. And when we were finished, staging. All told, the work took two months and cost less than $50K.
Was it worth it? You bet it was!
We listed the house on a Thursday and accepted a cash offer the following Wednesday. The selling price was substantially more than our initial appraisal and well over the asking price. We couldn't be happier.
Nick and Barbara Lymberis educated us every step of the way. The made excellent suggestions on what needed to be done to get the best price possible; made sure that everything was handled professionally; and helped to make the house shine on opening day! To top it off, they were courteous and professional, responsive, and just plain nice people.
I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family!
Not too many people are fortunate enough to find a real estate team as competent and personable as the two of you. The qualities you both possess compliment each other – integrity, compassion, knowledge, diligence and negotiation skills. We appreciate your willingness to come to our house on those late evenings in order to accommodate our children’s bedtime. The dedication you devote to your clients is outstanding, and we truly believe that you both have your clients’ best interests at heart.
"Barbara and Nick, her husband, are so awesome. In addition to being friends of ours, they're realtors. They did a terrific job selling my mom's home. They recommended an awesome guy to help us find our home up here. Because of Barbara and Nick, I have the perfect home for me to live the rest of my life in. I met Barbara through my job working for the San Jose Chamber Orchestra. She and Nick are season subscribers. She's one of the people I wish I could have stayed in CA and gotten to know even better. We had a nice lunch once. I wish we had been able to do that stuff more often. :)”
We were really in a bind, and we needed to sell quickly. You held the Open House, found a buyer right away, kept communication going with all the parties, and helped us through a very difficult time. You are a terrific couple, and a great Real Estate team. Your strengths were exactly what we needed.
Nick and Barbara Lymberis invested a considerable amount of time, resources and thoughtfulness in helping us present the home we sold and in purchasing our new home. They helped us attain full asking price on the within 2 days of our original home going on the market. They guided us through the sales process, explaining everything we needed to know.
They also helped us narrow the scope of our search to choose a new home in a very desirable location, giving us input regarding the scope of repairs that might be needed for homes we were more interested in. This helped us choose the home that was right for our family. Despite the challenges involved, they were very patient and helped us purchase a home on a short sale in record time.
Barbara and Nick always kept all of our criteria in mind and were sensitive to our needs. They were great at understanding our concerns and communicating with us all along the way. They were always very responsive and kind. From preparing our original home for sale to purchasing a new home to providing referrals for renovating our new home, Nick and Barbara have been a wealth of wisdom and helpfulness. Their extensive knowledge of all aspects of real estate, furthered by continuing education and leadership in realtors' associations, never ceased to amaze us. We highly recommend Barbara & Nick Lymberis of Perfect Harmony Realty and have every confidence in them.
My sale had it all: I was living out of the area, my house was rented to tenants, repairs needed to be made, and I needed it to close on time. You made it happen, and you kept me posted about everything. It was great.
My experience of having Nick & Barbara Lymberis sell my home in Willow Glen, California was wonderful. They were extremely professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, helpful, and friendly. I also admired how well they work together covering every possible challenge that occurred with efficient, creative, and quick solutions. This was my first home to sell and they always kept me completely aware of every detail and needed information so that each step along the way I felt completely safe and confident with the process. Their negotiation skills were excellent. With their respected experience the transactions was smooth and quick. Absolutely I would recommend Nick & Barbara to my friends and family to help them as they helped me. I couldn't have been more pleased with their devoted service. Sincerely,
I had such a short time frame to locate a home when I moved from Redding, and you worked hard to make it happen. You worked within my financial ability, gave me lots of options, and kept your sense of humor. I moved in when I needed to, and both I and my cat Reebok appreciate all you’ve done!
You are an outstanding Real Estate team…knowledgeable, compassionate, patient, and hard-working. You helped us sell our property in record time – and handled all the details of the transaction without causing us undue stress. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you!
Barbara and Nick were our realtors when buying our first house in US. They not only guided us through all details as were patient while helping us find a good place in a very though market. Highly recommended.
You really listened to us about how we wanted to sell our house, and you also gave us good advice along the way. We were referred to you by a family member, and we’re happy that it worked out so well. We felt we could discuss the process with you whenever we needed to.
We greatly appreciated your candor, depth of knowledge about real estate in Silicon Valley, and your ability to spend so much time with us over a three-day span so that we found a home we truly love. It means a lot to us…good people aren’t easy to find.
Nick & Barbara were simply outstanding. They took care of all the details and truly made this the easiest move we’ve ever experienced. We will definitely recommend them to anyone interested in topnotch service and friendly people.
All our friends had problems with their home purchases so we anticipated a difficult process. But ours went so smooth and was so ‘stress-free’. The house is perfect for us. We are constantly giving your name out to others.
"They ALWAYS got back to me in texts and ALWAYS answered their calls from me."
Having known Nick for many years from his law practice, I can say he is one of the most honest, integrous people I have ever met. And Barbara is simply a perfect match. They are the only real estate team I’d consider.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you’ve done!
Working with Nick & Barbara doesn’t feel like working with REALTORS?, it feels like working with old friends. Their down-to-earth, friendly approach is much appreciated.
Barbara was wonderful to work with! She was patient with me and quickly learned what I liked and didn't like. She was able to help me narrow down my search so we didn't waste time, but also pushed me to look at things and places I hadn't immediately considered. She was very supportive and made me feel like I had a real partner through the process; and she wasn't afraid to deliver the hard news about offers, HOAs etc. I never felt like she was telling me "what I wanted to hear." She told me what I needed to hear.
I couldn't recommend her more strongly. In our first meeting she told me that one day I'd walk into a house and "just know" - and she was right! I've now been in my place for almost a year and I love it! I couldn't be happier with what we found, and the whole experience to get there.
Barbara and Nick of Perfect Harmony Properties were excellent at communicating. They were extra patient in response to all my questions during my home sale, and also always checked in with me to see if I needed anything or had additional concerns. They were sensitive to my schedule, but were careful to keep me up to date on negotiations.
They gave great advice, which increased the profit on my biggest asset, the sale of my home.
I appreciate how involved they are with the real estate community and professional organizations, and the many thoughtful marketing strategies that helped to sell my home quickly.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them, and only them, for any real estate services.
Nick & Barbara did a great job…they always do what they say they will do. They are so knowledgeable about the prices and the areas. They knew the exact moment to make the offer, and the right amount to offer. They were patient and spent lots of time with us to find the perfect home. They are delightful to work with.
Nick and Barbara took control and coordinated a complete remodel and staging of the house before the sale. The house sold after the first showing and well over the asking price. We could not be happier.
