Selling my childhood home was the last thing I ever expected or wanted to do. Finding someone who would appreciate what I loved in my home I thought would be impossible.

I trusted her knowledge her honesty and her opinion. She was a joy to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone needing her expertise. Dana Lazarevich

Nikki was the BEST realtor we have ever had. Knowledgeable, reliable, trustworthy and a great personality. Priced our house well and we sold in a day! Ian & Lauren Schwartz
Nikki was wonderful to work with start to finish. In what felt like an impossible market for buyers, Nikki helped us navigate not only seeing houses and making offers but she was always there to answer any questions we had along the way. A true professional and just a wonderful person on top of that. Elliot Stak
“From our very first meeting through the day of closing, Nikki consistently exhibited a rare combination of professionalism and care as she helped us through the process of selling our house. She is very knowledgable and pays attention to detail. Her market study was realistic and she helped us set a price that attracted multiple offers. Nikki listened carefully, offered excellent advice and worked hard for us. What makes her stand out from the crowd is her authenticity. She has a positive, yet calm way about her that inspires confidence no matter what is going on. I recommend Nikki highly.” Barry Felson
I can thank you enough for all your hard work but anyone can work hard, your ability to see the bigger picture and keep calm is truly a gift. You have put my family and I in a new home when there was ZERO available, and it’s got 2 houses. You’ve been available to answer questions quickly even though you answer most before we ask. I truly can’t thank you enough. -Joel Joel
Nikki Travaglino has been my Real Estate Broker on and off for the past few years. She helped me find my two rentals in Guilford. Just recently she helped me find my new home to buy. Whether she was assisting me with a rental or a purchase she treated me with the exact same attention and care. She is a rare combination of professional and confident while at the same time treating you like an old friend. I feel like she always has my best interest at heart. She is friendly, calm, enthusiastic, easy to talk to and just an all around super person. She listens to your needs and addresses your concerns. Nikki is by far one of the best representatives William Pitt could ever have. Nanette Barratta
Nikki was recommended by a neighbor. I am extremely satisfied with her professionalism and Real Estate knowledgeable on all the options available to me with my home in Guilford. Nikki was able to answer any question and her assistance resulted in my election to list the house. The property was sold in 3 days with an over asking price. Nikki was very engaged throughout the complete process. She was on site at every showing and all inspections as well as for contract visits. I could not have asked for more from an agent. Guy Atwood
Nikki is the best! Very easy to work with and super pleasant! Fantastic job! Kevin Christian
Nikki is the consummate professional. She was always available and gave me valuable advice. Her dedication and perseverance helped me navigate through my stress and anxiety. Her hero’s program was also a nice surprise. I Would not hesitate to use her in the future or recommend her to any of my friends. Diana Mastromarino
Nikki was a dream to work with, especially since we were selling a property from the other side of the country! She took time to answer all my questions and responded quickly to texts and emails. She made the process very easy! Kevan Stanton Joanna Dunn
Nikki Travaglino was absolutely amazing in the home buying process. This home purchase was my first ever and I couldn’t have asked for a more patient realtor. Nikki went above and beyond SEVERAL times, but really what mattered to me was that she listened to me and my interests. She waited for me to find the perfect home for me, she didn’t try to simply “sell” me a house. She made sure I found my home and made sure it was right for me. Alyssa Zordan
Nikki Travaglino provided outstanding service in helping me find a new condo and relocate from NYC to Branford, CT. She is authentic, kind, and brilliantly managed the timeline of things that needed to happen between the offer and closing. Jill Ortenberg
Nikki was very helpful and responsive. William Murphy
We recently purchased our CT Dream Home using Nikki as our realtor and we are so happy we did! Working with Nikki is so easy and she really listened to our story, our likes and our must-haves. From start to finish she was attentive, available and excited to help. It became clear that Nikki really enjoys her profession and has mastered her craft. She shows that she is just as passionate and excited as her buyers. If you are looking for a realtor that understands the CT Shoreline and will work to get you, YOUR DREAM HOME, call Nikki! David Chevrette
