Nirma felt like a family friend, as if we knew her for a very long time :)"
"We loved how after we saw the house from an open house, Nirma went afterwards to talk to the other realtor in person and told him we were interested in putting an offer that day! Nirma was already way out of town and drove the distance to help make our sale a firm deal. Nirma is the best!"
Catherine Denike South Surrey BC (Buyer)
"We listed our house at a very difficult time in the market, 2 days before foreign ownership tax was imposed.. It was very stressful time as we had already purchased. Nirma worked very hard with open houses and following up on interested parties and low ball offers. Ultimately we got a decent price and the dates we needed so were able to avoid bridge financing. Nirma was available and kept us abreast of all interactions with other realtors. She has become a very good friend through the process. Thanks Nirma!!"

She is an effective negotiator and handled a few complex issues with ease."

Trevor and Alysha, Abbotsford, B.C (Buyer)
"Nirma Desai had approached us when we were renting. Both my fiancé and I had been looking to purchase our first home but never really felt that determined because we were comfortable with where we were. Nirma has approached us and helped us find a home. Not only did she help us in finding our home, but she helped in the entire process by ensuring that we were in the best hands by recommending an excellent broker. Although the entire process took a little longer than we had hoped Nirma proved to be patient with us and helped ensure that we were able to get the deal done. I will be recommending Nirma to all my friends and family and will be dealing with her on all future sales and purchases when it comes to real estate.
Jennifer Holloway, Cloverdale (Buyer)

"Nirma Desai is an amazing person. Helped me and my husband look for exactly what we wanted in a home. She met all our needs and wants and also explained things e didn't know a new home buyers. We re thankful to her and diffinutly recommend her to all my family and friends.
Was downsizing from a home which had been in family for over 50 years and moving to a different city To maximize investment and be closer to friends Home had never been on market before and had work to be done and lots of items to be cleared out from Family members over many years. I also was nervous about moving ,had lived in same city entire life and had health issues. Nirma reassured me, realized I preferred not to have open houses right away ( By Appt preferred) Showed me many properties in new area always keeping my wishes in mind. Helped find people who could,if necessary, assist with packing Told me house could be listed " as is" which neighbors had mentioned but which I had never understood Berfore Nirma explained. I had been called by realtors for 2 years and all had preassured and wanted major staging and renovations. I had spent the last few years looking after expenses like buried oil tanks sewer repairs electical hot water tank roofing and money was getting low. Prior to that my priority was to care for my father so he could stay in the home he and my mother spent their Entire married lives in. The house sold fast,the second person that looked at it. The first people made an offer as well but changed their minds. I made an offer on the first cond I looked at and got it and Nirma negotiated a very good deal for me. Through everything she kept in touch,explained everything,she even came to my garage sale. I have moved now, really like my new home and Nirma continues to check in she came by on moving day. I met and talked to many realtors over the last few years and my brother was an agent for 10 years ,during That time I never met anyone who cared as much as Nirma. I thought it would take ages to sell my property and that I would never get close to my price and would have To totally renovate it with borrowed money. That is basically what I had been told. Thankfully I had a friend who knew Nirma and also sold her home through her.
Yunus Anwar Surrey, BC (Buyer)
"Nirma is extremely hard working and loyal to her customers. Being new in town, not knowing anyone, dealt with many agents, but she was consistent with her follow ups and was willing to help. She kept her cool and took me around the city for several showings and was able to find a best suitable place for my family. Good job Nirma and we look forward to work with you in future."
Ramneet Badyal (Seller)
"Selling a home is usually a sensitive subject for most families. This was the case with my parents. They were initially hesitant in making any changes to improve the showing quality of the home but Nirma's patience and understanding attitude was enough to ease their minds. As a part owner in the property but living in a different province, Nirma's communication and keeping me involved was very much appreciated. We were able to fully trust her with our transactions. Upon closing, there were hiccups, Nirma was there every step of the way which comforted me knowing my parents were in great hands!"
Elmer abd Anita Neuman (Buyer)

Jeff & Aarti - Langley BC (Buyer)
"Being first time home owners, I thought that purchasing a home would be a very nerve racking experience.. and it was! However the comfort and support that we received from Nirma Desai was amazing. She had made the experience so much easier for us and we honestly could not have done it without her. It was nice to know that she was available at any time, (and I mean at any time) to answer any questions that a first time home owner would have. Her years of experience and abundance of knowledge really came through. I would highly recommend Nirma to any I know.
Rochelle & Craig Presgrave, Surrey BC (Buyer)

She was always very timely with her communication which helps get through the process really smoothly. I would recommend Nirma Desai to anyone who's looking to have a seamless experience with buying real estate."
Brian and Michelle Andrus (sellers)
Nirma helped us get the best and fastest sale for our home. Everything went fast and she gave us the schedule of how things would go from signing the listing documents, when the photographer would arrive, and when to expect the open house. She gave us excellent suggestions as to what we needed to do to stage our place even better, and we followed her guidance. Everything was set to go in less than a week and offers came in the following day after the open house!"

We hired Nirma to sell our house in S. Surrey and find our dream retirement home in Sechelt. We picked a bad time to sell, nothing was moving. But it didn’t phase her. She worked it! She was always attending real estate meetings to interest other realtors in our property which resulted in many showings that we might not have gotten. She advertised and followed up on every contact. We had open houses. At one point she was working a deal to get us our dream house when she fell ill and had to be hospitalized. The fact that she was in pain didn’t even stop her, as they rolled her down the hall in a gurney she was finalizing our purchase. If we’d had any other agent we would have lost the house. I’ve never seen such a hard worker. Her attitude is utterly professional without sacrificing friendliness. What makes her stand out is her commitment to her clients. She’s a class act. Laurel Ennis Sechelt, BC

We had been thinking for years of moving to South Surrey and at the beginning of this year, I decided to see what the market was like. There was never any doubt that I would have one of my best friends Nirma Desai act as our realtor. There is always a risk when doing business with a friend, but with Nirma, the entire buying/selling process went very quickly, smoothly and professionally. We love our new house and neighbourhood and thank Nirma for her dedication, energy and focus in making a dream a reality for us. Love you Nirma!!!!
After 43 years living in the same house, doing maintenance etc to an aging house and retirement close by I decided it might be time to downsize and move to a condo. I met Nirma Desai purely by accident while having coffee with my niece at Starbuck’s in South Surrey. During our conversation I overheard Nirma and her clients discussing real estate. I was impressed with her professional manner and knowledge of the area. Aware that their meeting was concluding I went over to their table and asked Nirma for her card. I was contemplating a move to the White Rock area so why not. When they finished their meeting Nirma came over to our table and introduced herself. We discussed my wants and needs. Nirma called the next day but I really wasn’t quite ready to make the break. I told her I would contact her when I was ready. She was very professional; there was no pressure. A couple months later I called Nirma to get together and look at a few places close to shops, services, and public transit. I found a condo that I really liked but was having reservations about selling my house. I figured it would be torn down and didn’t want to spend a lot of time and expense getting ready to sell. Nirma came to North Vancouver to give me some advice. After much thought, I decided to sell the house and purchase the condo. We listed my home and within two or three days, it was sold. The arduous task of downsizing was about to begin. I encountered some difficulty with familial matters during the next couple months. Nirma was very patient and understanding, calling almost daily with support and more advice. I moved into the condo almost three months ago and as I continue to unpack boxes and hang pictures I am beginning to feel very much at home. This was my first moving experience; without Nirma’s expertise, patience and understanding I don’t believe things would have gone as well as they did. I would definitely recommend Nirma to anyone who is contemplating purchasing or selling a home. Cheryl G. Surrey, BC
Patrick and Linda Scheltgen
We met Nirma when we found a house on line we liked. We listed our house with her and within no time she sold it. Our house had an offer in but our perfect house wasn't found. We panicked but with Nirma's persistant and commitment and after knocking on doors in the neighbourhood we asked for, the call came and it was the perfect house! Within hours our house was sold and our new house was bought! Thank you Nirma for your commitment to getting the job done! Patrick and Linda

This summer we were challenged with selling two properties and purchasing a family home within a tight timeframe. Our realtor, Nirma Desai, helped to make this very emotional and stressful experience as seamless as possible. We were very happy with her level of service, professionalism and positive attitude and we are overjoyed to be living in our new home thanks to her. ~ Mona Goswami-Powell & Family
When you work with Nirma, you will realize right away you are not working with just ANY real estate expert. She is truly a gem. Not only is she easy to work with and has tremendous knowledge that will help you in any negotiation or deal, but she goes out of her way to get YOU exactly what you want. She genuinely CARES and ensures that you get the house of your dreams. My husband and I met Nirma AFTER weâ€™d already been approached by some big names in White Rock Real estate, but we turned them all down. There was just in no contest once we met her. Nirma told us about how she went door to door to help a client find a house in a particular neighbourhood after they â€œgot bumpedâ€ on a house they had made an offer on. Nirma hit the pavement and found her a house (actually a better house) right away. We thought that showed a big commitment to her client, for her to work day and night like that. What was ironic is that same situation ended up mirroring our won. My husband and I put an offer on a house that was being sold by another big name realtor and felt â€œshaftedâ€ when our offer wasnâ€™t even entertained as there was a competing offer. (our offer was higher!) Nirma not only went to bat for us, but she cancelled her vacation and knocked on doors and got my husband and I into another house viewing and GUARANTEED us the first couple to be able to see it. We made an offer right away and it got accepted â€“ and it is truly our dream home.! Weeks later, she still calls and sends us gifts and keeps in touch. She takes her work personally, which is so rare these days, and she knows EVERYONE in this neighborhood and can let you know whoâ€™s even thinking of selling or buying â€“ a plus for this competitive market. She is the best and I have family and friends moving here to our neighborhood and Iâ€™m telling them â€“ go see Nirma, donâ€™t even look at anyone else!! PS â€“ Remember that â€˜big named real estate agentâ€™ â€“ well my husbandâ€™s co-worker worked with her and NEVER had 1 person come see her house. I am so glad I trusted my instinct and went with Nirma. Stefanie Hartman Profit Strategist, International Speaker www.MillionaireExpertSuccessSystem.com

Nirma Desai sold our house in a tough market. She is driven, determined to get you what you want, a great negotiator, and personable. Thanks Nirma. The Rydings Family
Patrick and Frances Gleeson
Dear Nirma, It is one month since we moved in to our new home. We are both very happy with it and, while we are still moving stuff and emptying boxes, it does feel like our place. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your diligent efforts on our behalf. It has been a long journey but in the end a successful one. I am not sure if you realize this but it is in excess of nine months since we first contacted you to look for a home in the south Surrey area. What we did not expect was that it was going to take as long as it did to sell our place with the other realtor. The best move we made was contracting with you to sell our previous residence when the contract finished with the original realtor. You have a “lets get it done” attitude and approach which is hard to beat. With your direction and effort, we sold the condo in a couple of months and we were then able to complete on the place that we found with you, and which we really liked. Our relationship with you has been very successful and we would have no problem with recommending you to anyone who chooses to sell or buy their place. As we noted previously, you get it done! Thank you so much for your help, assistance and genuine caring for us. It is very much appreciated by both of us.
Bill and Catherine Hewson
"We met Nirma at Scottsdale Mall about six months before we actually made a commitment to purchase. Nirma was kind and patient with us as we were not sure what lifestyle we were looking for. Nirma helped us by taking us to see different styles of homes in different areas of Surrey. She was always listened to our needs and gave us so much help while we made a decision. In the middle of it all, my husband got a job offer out of country, and Nirma encouraged us to consider the timing in buying a home as a seasonal property or retirement property. The timing was right, it is a wonderful investment, and we couldn't be happier with the home we purchased and the area we now call home. Thank you Nirma for taking us through the process from beginning to end, making it as easy as possible, and fun at the same time. ~Catherine and Bill Hewson (and Ethel too)."
Colin Johnstone and Jacyln Layne
You were very professional and accommodating and made the entire process very easy. We wouldn't hesitate to refer our family and friends to you.
I recently bought a condo in Surrey with the help of Nirma Desai. Since this was my first homebuying experience, Nirma made the process as easy as possible, going over in detail what I was about to experience. On our first meeting, we sat down and discussed exactly what I was looking for. Knowing that I was buying a place on my own, she advised that I look at something that was safe and in a good neighbourhood. This made me feel at ease and comforted knowing that she cared about my well-being. She took the time to research various options and became readily available when it was time to look. A first time homebuyinig experience can most often be overwhelming and frustrating, but Nirma really made the experience calm and fun.
Nirma made my first condominium purchase such a delight. Her expertise and pride in making me succeed gave me the confidence in reaching my goal which was worth waiting for. If you’re looking for a good real estate agent I would recommend Nirma because she is the best.
Working with Nirma on the purchase of my first home made the whole process seem like a walk in the park. She provided a lot of advice every step of the way. Nirma is very professional and works with you on to ensure all appointments fit your schedule and she arrived on time for all appointments . She helped me negotiate an offer far less than the market price of my home. On a lighter note the pizza she personally delivered to my home on the night I moved in was "God-sent" as we were all famished after moving all day. I highly recommemnd her to any one looking for a realtor
Nat and Bharti Paleja
What can I say for Nirma Desai? She sold our place in less than 3 weeks and we got our 100% asking price!
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your help with the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home. During a very stressful time for me, your professionalism as my Realtor were above and beyond what I expected. Your attention to all the details, responding to phone calls, and keeping me abreast of everything that was happening, certainly took a lot of pressure off me. I would not hesitate to recommend you to any of my friends or colleagues who might need a Realtor in the future.
"Being a first time homebuyer, Nirma was very patient with me and helped me navigate easily through the home buying process. Nirma was very professional and spent a lot of time assisting me with my decision."
