"Ники Хиггинс - идеал профессионализма и услуг в области недвижимости.  Она великолепно знает Флориду, побережье этого штата, каждый город, район, улицу..  Всегда готова вам дать незаменимый совет.  На основе ваших даже самых абстрактных идей и интересов, Ники сориентирует вас и построит конкретный план поиска. 

Пожалуй, ее самым главным качеством - те, кому уже приходилось сотрудничать с агентами недвижимости, возможно, со мной согласятся - это то, что для Ники главной задачей во время сотрудничества с вами является найти для вас дом, а не "сделать сделку".  Все ее внимание и время направлено на то, чтобы вы были в полной уверенности, что вы нашли именно то, что вам рисовало ваше воображение."

"Элина Б., клиент компании The Seaside Group at Douglas Elliman".

"My wife and I worked with Niki Higgins of The Seaside Group at Douglas Elliman last winter and spring. Niki took plenty of time to understand the type of apartment we were looking for, and then culled a list of ten properties, each of which had many of the attributes we sought. When we got down to Florida after a few months of looking at apartments on the web, she took plenty of time to walk us through each apartment, and over the course of five days we narrowed the original list down to one--a result of several visits to many apartments. Niki identified clearly what we wanted, and then picked apartments that fit. She wasted none of our time. 

When the negotiations began, she was constantly in our corner with valuable insights on the market and seller. The combination of understanding her clients, and insight into the market enabled us to close on the apartment we wanted."

"In my considerable experience buying and selling properties over the last decade, no one has provided the level of service received from Niki and the The Seaside Group at Douglas Elliman team--beyond the pampering, there is keen business savvy and market awareness that navigates you on the optimal course and gets you to go, even in these turbulent economic waters."

"We had the good fortune of having Niki work with us as both buyers and sellers. We purchased two properties as a result of her careful and tireless attention to our needs and desires and successfully sold a wonderful property with her guidance and enthusiasm. In these complicated economic times, she went beyond the call of duty to make the process work from beginning to end; calling on her vast and deep resources and knowledge of the market and steering us in the right direction with an eye toward the future."

In a single afternoon, The Seaside Group gave me a complete survey of the best oceanfront condo buildings and the types of apartments and facilities in each.

"Buying property can be a daunting experience. Buying a second home in a far away state is even more challenging. It's imperative that the realtor you chose have a strong connection to the area and a vast network of trustworthy professionals to call on before, during and after the purchase.Niki of The Seaside Group at Douglas Elliman have it all covered. She lives where she sells and know the market from all angles. She had developed valuable relationships through her combined years of experience which make her unique to a field of newcomers and part time agents. And, there's never pressure. That's not her style. 

Patience is what we needed given the intimidating commitment we were considering, and that's what we got. It paid off. 

We first met Niki several years ago when we cautiously began to dip our toes into the Florida real estate market. Hesitant to make a significant investment far away from our home base, on family visits we'd traipse through properties, often with kids in tow, while Niki gave us as much time needed to look over carefully chosen properties. She allowed us define what we were looking for, never foisting on us properties which were not in our price or taste range, but offered well-reasoned advice when needed. 

She carefully scheduled visits so as to minimize the intrusion on precious vacation time. Whether it was locating an engineer, scheduling an inspection, or any of the dozens of arrangements necessary to close, she made it happen. If there was a glitch, we heard about it afterwards, if at all. 

We are busy lawyers in the middle of our careers. Neither expected to own a second place in the sun at this stage of our lives, but there has never been a better time to buy, for the long run, in Florida. Properties which had climbed out of reach are now affordable. The Seaside Group at Douglas Elliman has access to an inventory of unique properties which are high in quality and desirable in location. Other companies are less focused. We now have a lovely place which our family will cherish and enjoy for years--thanks to Niki. We would not hesitate to recommend her for anyone interested in a premier waterfront property in South Florida."
