Nina Cimini is the gold standard for realtors. She is smart, hardworking and most importantly showed genuine interest in what was best for me as a client. She communicated clearly and honestly and shared her broad knowledge of both real estate in general and the specific market being targeted. It never took long for her to return an email, a text or a phone call. She was always my strong advocate but never pressured me. She would give her opinions when I asked for them but she always reassured me that decisions were mine to make. I attempted to sell my house the week before the pandemic restrictions began. That along with another incident later beyond my control made the process unusually challenging and it took much longer than normal. Many realtors might have backed away or diverted their time elsewhere from this challenge. But not Nina. She has an incredible positive attitude and enduring patience. This is even more amazing since she is one of the top selling realtors in not only the area but the country. She didn’t need my business to be successful. On second thought, maybe that’s why she is so successful. From my experience, I feel Nina will be a top notch representative for anyone—whether you are purchasing your first home ever or selling a home of 40+ years of memories. That should hopefully be reassuring to anyone that needs to depend on someone they don’t already know for one of the biggest financial transactions of their life. - Robert G.

Our relationship with our agent, Nina Cimini has been fantastic. She has been so extremely available and responsive to our long term plans and interests that I must share in detail. Nina has been at our service since 2007 when she helped us sell our first rental property in Scottsdale. Since, we have requested her help and relied on her expertise in so many ways. We told Nina then that we planned to eventually relocate to the Phoenix area (from Seattle) at retirement...in about 15 years. Instead of "wishing us luck", she stayed engaged with us throughout the years, checking in periodically and responding immediately whenever we had questions about the latest AZ market trends or changes. She has been so generous with her time and talent, even though that "next sale" seemed so far off. Well, that day finally came and Nina was there to help us find and finally purchase our retirement home in N. Glendale. We are so pleased and thankful for her patience, responsiveness and professionalism! Our business relationship has evolved into a friendship that will last for another 15 years or more. We give Nina an A+ and recommend her with no reservation. She's the best! – Chuck & Carla

We chose Nina for her long experience with Villa Monterey. She has been focusing on our large 55+ community for many years and is clearly the most active realtor there. We were not disappointed. We are experienced sellers, having bought and sold over ten properties in three states. It was great to work with her, and she was with us every step of the way. Even though she has a lot going on, we dealt with her personally, not an assistant. – Doug Payne

Nina is fantastic. She made us feel like we were her top priority and answered all our questions. She is very knowledgeable - esp. the South Scottsdale area. She knows the ins and outs, she knows what the buyers are looking for, what the sellers should address, and knows what the competition in the area is doing. She helped us make some key decisions and provided data to support her comps. She is professional and courteous. I won’t hesitate to have Nina help us again in the future. - Erin

Our experience with Nina as our realtor was outstanding! She was very nice and very professional. Nina put in a lot of hard work into selling my mother’s home in Scottsdale last month. She kept us four girls in the loop at all times. I would highly recommend Nina to sell your next home. - Renee

Nina is simply the best! We were lucky to have been introduced to her by our parents who live in Scottsdale. We were first time home buyers so we were a lot of work. But we seriously cannot imagine a better experience with our realtor. Nina was helpful, savvy, patient, thoughtful and incredibly knowledgeable. She made absolute sure we were buying the home we really wanted, putting her own financial incentive aside to make sure we were happy. She worked incredibly fast for us, lining up a whole new set of tours one day after we decided we wanted to see Gilbert instead of Scottsdale. She makes you feel like you are her only client, somehow, I don't know how she has the time in the day. She's everything you want in an agent. We cannot recommend her enough. Nina will be our agent forever. – Daniel M.

If you want a consummate professional who easily blends outstanding marketing with sales skills to sell your home, Nina Cimini provides that and so much more. In our recent sale she was always a text or phone call away with ready answers or action. She reached out to us regularly via text, phone, email and snail mail in the three months our house was on the market and strongly represented us in negotiations with the ultimate purchaser. She is the best realtor I have ever dealt with in the sales of multiple homes. – Nancy S.

Buying a home? Listing a home? Call Nina Cimini. You won't find anyone who is more professional, honest, genuinely helpful, and knowledgeable about the real estate market. Nina advised and guided me in every step of the process of selling my home. I had a medical emergency out of state, and Nina stepped in to fill the gap of my absence. She kept me appraised of what was happening, and my home went to closing while I was still away. I couldn't have gotten through the process with Nina's guidance. She is more than a realtor, she is a friend. I cannot recommend Nina highly enough for the value she provides to her clients. She is the best! – Deb Benson

Nina couldn't have been more fantastic with helping us find and purchase our first home! She literally walked us through every step, answered every question, and was always professional and supportive. Whenever we had complication throughout the home buying processes, Nina was right there ready to go and had our backs and best interests in mind. Even her other associate, Will was fantastic every time we worked with him. He showed us a few houses and he was always the best guy to chat for hours with! Nina never got frustrated, even when at times we would be. She was fantastic at giving advice/opinions without influencing ours. She is definitely the realtor you want if you are looking for a dedicated, professional, and genuinely kind human being to find your forever home. Thank you so much Nina for helping us through this process, we couldn't have done it without you!! - K. Belyan

Nina was excellent to work with! She was very knowledgeable of the market and knew what to price our home at to get a great value! We were selling from out of state and Nina was great at quick communications to get the property sold in a timely manner. She was also very responsive to questions and concerns we had and made it very easy to understand the selling process. We needed to have items removed from the house prior to selling and Nina also helped to ensure that someone was on site to help with getting these items out of the property. She even took her own time to send us pictures of items we wanted to keep and took them to the UPS to get mailed to us. I would highly recommend Nina to anyone looking to sell a property and would definitely utilize her again if I needed assistance in the future!

Nina was amazing to work with. She was in communication with my family and I throughout the entire home sale process. We appreciated her expertise in the market and help in the sale of our home as well as removal of items in our home. She was very easy to work with and a wonderful realtor. – Jenna S.

Nina Cimini is a remarkable and trustworthy real estate professional. In the last four months, Nina assisted me in buying a new home and selling one. Buying and selling a home is stressful but Nina makes the experience manageable and as pleasant as possible. Nina's patience was very positive so I was able to get the selling price that I wanted for my home. I can't recommend her enough. – Larry

I am/was a first time homebuyer and I was so fortunate to have the luxury of working Nina. Nina sat down with me to really hone in on the type of home that would be best for me and my budget along with the areas where we could expect to find those homes. Once we found a property Nina walked me through every step of the home buying process and made it very easy for me to understand and keep things moving smoothly. If I am ever in the market to buy and/or sell I will definitely be working with Nina! Thanks for everything. – Richard S.

Nina was a joy to work with on this sale. She has great knowledge of the area and its current trends. She is a true professional and recommended highly. – Marc T.

Nina was amazing to work with. She was dedicated, thorough, and her follow up and follow through skills are impeccable. She has a great personality and works well with everyone. She gave us great insight, good guidance and didn't push her opinion but gave a very objective insight into our process and selections. We enjoyed working with her and are looking forward to the next sale! - Mitra B

Nina was always available and made us feel like we were her only clients (although I know she has dozens at any given time). She is an expert in the business, the neighborhood, and the personal relationship of each of her clients!! She gave us her opinion, but let us know we were always in the driver’s seat— she is a true professional in her field!! - Kaelen

We found Nina on highly rated on Yelp and Zillow. We wanted an agent that had experience, especially in our listing neighborhood and an excellent reputation. In just a few minutes by phone, Nina proved she was the one we were looking for. She didn't even need time to look things up, she already new the area, the street and the complex, EVEN our unit! When we met with Nina she was prepared with all the background information that allowed us to feel informed and confidently participate in choosing how best to price and present our listing. We had two full offer the first weekend and the smoothest escrow ever. With Nina being proactive on all issues we comfortably went out of town as this marched toward closing. Nina met us a the signing and again proved her value in noticing a mistake that saved us another $300. While ever professional, Nina has maintained a cheerful disposition allowing the whole process to be easy and enjoyable. We look forward to another opportunity to work with her. – Steve & Sue

Nina recently helped us sell our home and purchase a new one. She worked with us throughout the whole process and was very knowledgeable, patient, and a pleasure to work with. We always felt well informed with Nina's pro-active communication and quick responses to any questions we had. She did a remarkable job managing the sell of our house and helping us purchase a new one. She was able to line up the timing of both perfectly and she made sure no detail was overlooked on either process. I would highly recommend Nina to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. - Matthew

We have worked with Nina multiple times and each time she made certain we were aware of everything at each step in process. In prepping our home for sale, she told us what needed to be taken care of to be ready. When on the market, Nina did a wonderful job of marketing our home and working overtime to get as many potential buyers to see it as they could. We were overjoyed at how quickly our house sold. When it came time to buy, she had the patience of a saint. It was as though we were her top priority, a feeling I am certain is shared by all of her clients! We just closed on our dream home in our desired neighborhood and couldn't be happier. I would not hesitate to use Nina or recommend her in the future. - Diane D.

Nina recently helped us sell our home and purchase a new one. It was great to be able to work with one person through the entire process! She was very knowledgeable about our area and the entire process. She set great expectations for us and answered any questions that popped into our heads throughout the process. She was very responsive, day or night, and was always willing to talk things through with us. I would highly recommend Nina to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. - Gretchen

When we needed to sell my mother in law's house, we felt we needed to go with someone who specialized in selling homes in the immediate area. Our research led us to choose Nina Cimini, and we could not be happier with our choice. Nina got us our full asking price, and made a difficult process easy with her professional approach. She handled everything in a friendly and energetic manner to allow us to do what was needed during the sales process. Her positive attitude is infectious and gave us confidence throughout the whole process. She is highly experienced, easy to talk to and has a wonderful presence. We recommend Nina highly and are sure you will enjoy working with her. - Karen

Nina is a true professional. She is an expert in the Scottsdale location market. Her communication throughout our sales process was great. She was always able to answer our questions and kept us informed from beginning to end of our sale. We are so glad that Nina was our agent and we highly recommend her as a real estate agent. - Anthony

Nina was always in constant contact with me and put me at ease knowing she was handling everything. She checked on the house frequently, held open houses and really promoted the listing. Even when she had to go out of town she was always available it I had a question and even had one of her associates do an open house which I really appreciated. After getting a offer Nina's negotiating skills kicked in and it's easy to see why she's one of, if not THE BEST agent in the area! She was present at every phase of the deal, whether it was meeting inspectors, appraisers or coming to the closing with me to make sure there were no surprises. I must say it was a little sad at the closing knowing I wouldn't be seeing or talking to Nina anymore...until next time. We do have another house in the valley that we hope to put on the market and will most definitely be listing with Nina. - Suzan

Nina is knowledgeable, patient and is an absolute pleasure to work with. It is easy to see why she is one of Scottsdale’s leading real estate agents. She is amazingly responsive, provides detailed follow up and was our advocate every step of the way. The marketing of our home was top notch and she worked very hard for us. She is a true professional and my wife and I were extremely pleased with her services. Nina has a great network of contacts as well, including great cleaning people, landscapers, mortgage and title professionals. Her communication skills are excellent. She goes above and beyond and we recommend her highly on every level. – Bill & Wendy

Nina is an extremely knowledgeable, professional and effective agent. At our first meeting, she educated us regarding how the process would play out and how she would advocate for us at each step... which she ultimately did so very well. She worked tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcome for us as sellers, and communicated with us on a regular basis with updates, concerns and questions. She was on site to meet with the inspector and the appraiser. She offered expert guidance in assessing the initial offer; formulating our response to the initial offer; working through the requested repairs based on the inspector's report; and more. Five stars are not enough to properly recommend Nina. – Lee & Barb

I highly recommend Nina Cimini. She was very informed about the market and the area of my property. I was an out of state customer so communication was very important. Nina was pro-active in keeping me informed throughout the process and responded quickly to my calls. She went above and beyond in helping to facilitate the process. She was easy to work with and was very professional in all of our interactions. – Rosa S.

Nina Cimini is amazing! She sold our home in 48 hours, for $5000 over the asking price! She was extremely professional and always promptly returned calls and kept us informed throughout the process. I highly recommend her to everyone. – Jennifer & Roy

Nina Cimini handled every aspect of the sale of our condo with a level of professionalism, warmth, speed, and knowhow that absolutely blew me away. There is simply no better agent if you are buying or selling at the Maya. She has sold over 125 units there and knows the property inside and out. She brought in a professional photographer and had just the right props & touches of color to bring out the best in the unit (it was freshly rehabbed but vacant). The photos she posted were ten times better than anyone else's. She priced it at just the right level for the market and the time of year - we got a good offer almost immediately. I would absolutely, unhesitatingly recommend Nina Cimini for any real estate transaction you want to do. And you'll enjoy yourself! I found Nina a real pleasure to work with personally. Thanks for a great and pleasant transaction. I only wish I had more property to buy or sell in the area! - A Very Happy Client

We have been lucky enough to have worked with Nina for 10 years. She has helped us with buying and selling our home. There was never any question we would list with Nina. Her honesty, integrity and patience make her the best realtor we have ever worked with. – David K.

It is my immense pleasure to recommend Nina Cimini as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. Her knowledge is incredible. She knows the history of the area, and often the history of individual homes. She knows about building construction and quality, or lack thereof. Nina has an uncanny ability to read her clients. She puts this quality to work exclusively for her clients' interests. By listening to us and our individual taste, she knew before we did which house matched us best. But she never pushed. Only when we asked did she respond with her opinion of which house matched us best. We found Nina to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. The poor lady ALWAYS makes herself available, and does so without a note of hesitation in her voice. She gives her clients the sense that she really enjoys what she does. We found Nina to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality. We could tell that Nina is in a class of her own with going above and beyond. In attempting to close on the house we purchased, we ran into several snags, which nearly killed the deal. The sales agent put in little time, effort, or imagination to keep the deal alive. Nina was the exact opposite. She spent hours researching, cajoling (diplomatically) city officials, and saving the deal. The sales agent has no idea how much she owes Nina, who easily could have let the deal fall apart. Throughout this whole process, Nina has really felt like a friend. We all know the kind of person who pretends to be very friendly to clients. But Nina is real. Our hope now is that Nina is representative of the people we will find living around us in the Scottsdale area. We know this is an unrealistically high hope. But at least we're happy to know that we'll see her driving around our neighborhood, and that we can stop her from time to time to catch up with our friend. – Kathy J.

I was very impressed with Nina. She was prompt to answer all questions to both myself and the others involved. She was able to quickly problem solve issues that arose, with professional empathy. All paperwork was timely, with Nina using the most innovative technical tools available to complete all files required for the sale. The sale was a stress free experience even through a long escrow process. As a listing agent she used a professional photographer and an accurate description of the property. It made me want to buy my own house! As a buyers agent you will find her attentive with advice that will fit the current market conditions. She will complete the paperwork for the offer with internet based technology that is user friendly or she will meet you in person. She is truly a shining 5 star agent. I recommend her highly. - Suzy O’Riley

All excellent things to say about Nina. I contacted Nina in regards to selling my house in Old Town Scottsdale area. I discovered her by occasionally receiving a business postcard in the mail outlining her current sales in the area. I left her an initial voicemail and she called me back the same day. She seems like a very busy realtor, but I always felt as though she had plenty of time to speak with me about the situation at hand. Upon meeting her, she always appears professional and wears her Home Smart name badge. When it came to placing my house on the market, her photographer captured excellent photos of my house. I feel as though the asking price was fair with the current market trends. After the first 3 days of showings and receiving feedback (which mainly pertained to my backyard), she was over at my house with great ideas on rearranging patio furniture and even brought over floral arrangements to use. My house went under contract within 2 weeks. Nina was very calm and reasonable throughout the selling process. I did not receive any pressure from her regarding negotiations and she stated multiple times that she wanted me to be comfortable with the decisions I was making. She was also present at the buyers inspection. I highly recommend having Nina as a realtor. If I were to buy or sell a property again, I would certainly utilize her expertise. - Stacey Jackson

When my father in Scottsdale passed away I had to come from Vegas to handle his affairs including the sale of his house. I thank my lucky stars I found Nina who came highly recommended by a neighbor. She went far out of her way to help me. She knew of people to remove items and to clean, all at very reasonable prices. She helped stage the house which was of great value to speeding along the sale. She sold house in a very short time and overall made things easy for me paperwork-wise from Vegas. She is friendly, highly professional, knowledgeable, experienced, and very, very, hard working. She takes a personal interest in her customers and is a joy to work with. I don't know of anyone in any occupation I've had a better experience with, and she deserves the highest praise. – Richard Molinari

Nina made the home selling experience extremely easy for us. Before meeting with her, we were afraid of the unknown and what it would take. During our initial meeting, she gave us tips and ideas and kept guiding us through the entire process. During the closing, she made sure that we understood each line item. Nina is extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly. She will do whatever it takes to get the job done and make sure we were happy with the outcome. We were so grateful we hired her! – Rosa Solano

We chose Nina to list our home due to her presence in our neighborhood. We just wanted someone who knew our area and market but little did we know what we were getting! From the very first email we sent, Nina was prompt, professional and friendly. Her suggestions prior to putting our home on the market were invaluable and following her advice definitely helped us sell quick. We moved out of state before we put our house on the market, and there was never any hesitation because we knew our home was in great hands with Nina. Her communication is excellent and she was always keeping us updated via text/email/phone on any new happenings with the listing, I don't think she sleeps! Her staging, photography and web presence was top notch, which is probably why we had a very solid offer after only 1 day on the market. Bottom line: working with Nina was the very best. She made the potentially painful process of selling a home (out of state, much less) easy and worry free. Many thanks to Nina! – Ryan and Jen Ferguson

Nina was extremely professional and cared about every detail of preparing the house for its listing and for the photo shoot. She put our needs and concerns above her own and was very considerate of the fact that we had pets when the house needed showing and was also quick to respond to any calls with questions as well as requests to see other listings while our house was for sale. She goes the extra degree with the quality of the home brochures and even her listing sign is a notch above other posted signs -- little details that make an impressive difference. She is very genuine in her concern for others, and I would not only recommend her, but would seek her out myself should I need an agent in the future. – Heather Erwin
