Client Testimonials

The DiMucci Family

“Niki Higgins is one of the most professional, conscientious and reliable brokers in South Florida. She works relentlessly for her clients. Niki will do the right thing for her client(s) and their property. We have worked with Niki for more then 10 years, and would gladly refer her to the harshest of clients/critics. In South Florida there is no better real estate broker than Niki Higgins.”

Tony Elavia

“After having worked with many agents over the years, I can say with confidence that Niki is one of two best agents we have ever worked with. She took the time to really understand what we were looking for and patiently steered us through the process of understanding different neighborhoods and how they related to our needs. Niki also did an outstanding job of negotiating and completing the transaction. We look forward to working with Niki for our future real estate needs in South Eastern Florida.”

Joan Blackwood

“Niki was the realtor who sold me a beachfront condo in The Palms in Ft Lauderdale. I had a job change that required me to sell the unit within two years, and Niki was also the agent for the sale. In having her represent me as both the buyer and seller, she was equally superior at both. She has an extensive knowledge of the Miami/Ft Lauderdale/Palm Beach market, and is a fantastic negotiator whether you are buying or selling. I would highly recommend Niki as experienced realtor who goes the extra mile for her clients.”

Joseph Wert

“After having a disastrous experience with another broker, we were referred to Niki and it was truly one of those “died and gone to heaven” experiences. She and her staff were wonderful to work, from the planning for our initial viewings to the follow up required to get to “close” and beyond. Niki is very straight forward in every way. She is simply the best that South Florida offers, and we will refer her glowingly to anyone who wants a knowledgeable, insightful, responsive, thorough, and always available broker.”

Michael J. Leffell

“My wife and I worked with Niki Higgins 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 oneNiki identified clearly what we wanted, and then picked apartments that fit. She wasted none of our time.”

Karen Rosenfarb

Premium Client Advisor

We highly recommend Niki as being one of the most ethical, industriously, motivated and hardest working agents we have ever hired or even encountered. She knows all the ins and outs of the home selling/buying process and does a great job marketing her properties. She is very professional, competent and personable. She listens, cares and will be with you every step of the way whether you are buying or selling. We highly recommend her to anyone who wants an honest, experienced, personable and professional agent.”

Robert E. Wilson

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