About Nichol

Growing up in this area, I couldn't wait to get out and see the world. I have lived all around this amazing country, enjoying all the diversity it has to offer. But one thing has always remained the same. Even though other places may also be beautiful and exciting, they are never quite as good as home. I decided that the best place for me to settle down and raise my own family, was right here in the Elmira-Corning area. My family loves this area, and everything it has to offer. I would be so grateful to have the opportunity to show you and your family around, and I am sure you will love it here too! I don't just sell homes. I bring families together with their dreams.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Elmira?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Elmira?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
