Browse what clients have to say about working with Nina

"Nina worked with us from the beginning our our home search all the way to closing on our first home. She is wonderfully professional, kind and knowledgeable. She walked us through the whole process, negotiated a lower than asking price on our behalf, gave us excellent recommendations for specialty inspectors during the inspection process, and helped us navigate all the emotional ups and downs while we waited to close. She was our champion, our therapist and our friend throughout the process and we could not have asked for someone better to work with. Could not recommend Nina more!"

Jason & Sveta D.

"Nina makes an otherwise stressful process - painless! She is easy to communicate with, has a sense of humor, and while she can get into the tiniest of details, Nina never loses sight of the bigger picture. When I needed a boost, she was a cheerleader, when an aggressive approach was the call, Nina delivered. I sold in the early throes of the Covid-19 crisis and she was able to implement the new protocols to keep everybody safe, AND stay upbeat, AND get me an above-asking price. I would work with Nina again in a heartbeat."

"Fantastic person to have on your side. Nina provided extensive knowledge on the home buying process for a 1st timer like myself, as well as perspective on the neighborhoods and areas I was looking in. Was there with me start to finish to guide the process. "

Kevin Y.

"My wife and I would have been lost without Nina. She guided us through every step of the process and really built a relationship with the seller that we would never have been able to do on our own. Nina got to know us and the seller personally and formed an understanding of how to achieve everyone's goals. Thanks to Nina, we bought the VERY FIRST house we put an offer on and didn't pay a penny over asking. We were so lucky to find her and will definitely be buying our next house with Nina."

Zach T.

"Nina is the reason we were able to purchase our first home. She was empathetic and perceptive helping us craft an offer the sellers accepted right away. She was very patient as we learned about the complicated process, and most of all she was always encouraging and optimistic! I have already recommended Nina to a few friends."

Molly H.

"You have been a wonderful representative for Topanga Canyon and Frank and I feel you were as kind, considerate, and caring of us as you were for the buyers. You are professional, yet you are a very caring person, especially at a traumatic and exhausting time for all involved. I can’t thank you enough for keeping me out of the E.R. and Psychiatric Unit at Kaiser. Frank and I feel you are a great asset to the Topanga Community and we wish you a long and successful career in Topanga. Please feel free to add our comments to your website. Take care and many, many thanks.”"

Mike & Frank K.

"Nina was extraordinarily helpful in my search for a home. She listened to my very specific needs and helped me find the perfect residence. As a first time home buyer I had many questions about the process, and Nina was always willing to go the extra mile to guide me through the process and gave me countless suggestions that made things go much more smoothly. I would recommend Nina without hesitation to anybody considering buying or selling a home in this challenging market. I found such a fantastic place at such a fantastic price, and Nina was integral to that happening! Thanks Nina!"

Mike P.

"Nina just completed a land purchase for my wife and I in Topanga. The whole procedure went very smoothly and was completed extremely quickly, thanks to her diligence. Nina was always readily available to answer any questions, and there were many questions from my side, having only purchased property in this country once before. My wife and I would thoroughly recommend Nina Kurtz to others that wish to purchase property in this area of southern California."

Don W.

"I found Nina the same way I found Topanga. Exploring. Although I found her at an open house, I really wasn’t sure I was ready to buy. This is how our relationship began. Over the next several months, Nina worked tirelessly to understand what I loved about Topanga and seemed to intuitively know what I was looking for in a home well before I did. Her careful preparation and enthusiastic approach to real estate made our journey through the housing market of Topanga genuinely enjoyable! Which isn’t to say I didn’t lose heart at times; I did. Between the loan market and the economy in general, it was a tough road and I wasn’t always sure I would make it through to the other side. Nina’s confidence in me and my future home and her unwavering support were instrumental, and this is why I can say without hesitation that Nina Kurtz will always be my realtor. She did not give up on me and I am living in my own slice of paradise as a direct result. Thank you Nina!!!"

Nicole R.

"It was a pleasure to have Nina Kurtz assist me in finding my home. I’ve lived here now for the past year and love my home with all of my heart. She truly had a knack for finding personally-resonating properties. She really listened to me when I communicated what I wanted. Not only did she keep the ‘real’ in real estate, but her diligence and follow-ups made me feel like I really didn’t have to worry about a thing! She went that extra mile for me then, and continues to check in with me to this day. Thank you, Nina!"

Gigi C.

"Nina Kurtz was our Realtor of Choice when we began our search for a property in Topanga. Nina provided guidance, professionalism and had a thorough understanding of what our hopes were for a property. With her exceptional negotiation and communication skills she was able to guide our every move and ultimately led us to a very special property that is now our new home. Without her knowledge and skills we doubt that we would have made this deal a reality. We endorse her work, her positive personality and her professionalism And know she will be the person we turn to if we choose to sell or buy another property."

Allan & Sally Y.

"To whom it may concern; Nina Kurtz is so much more than an agent. She involves herself with her clients’ needs, dreams, desires and especially, the sometimes stark realities of purchasing real estate. She does this in a way that is not invasive. She is always respectful. She is always available. If she can’t answer a question, she does the research and gets right back to you. Her generous spirit and honesty make every encounter with her and the overwhelming decision of buying a home a great memory. This is an agent you can trust."

Ellen G.

"We met Nina at the open house of the home we ended up purchasing. Being new to the area she really helped connecting us to great resources that helped make the process easier. She was also very prompt and responsive in all our interactions, and in general is a great person spend time with."

David R.

"Nina Kurtz is genuinely dedicated to helping her clients find the perfect home. When we began our search for a house, Nina worked closely with us to find just the right home for our needs and our budget. She was patient with us during our search no matter how many properties we wanted to see, and was always very quick to respond to our calls. She didn’t pull any punches either giving us her feedback, which was very much appreciated. When we found our house she was sharp negotiating our sale. She’s very knowledgeable and trustworthy–I highly recommend working with Nina!"

Michelle B.

"Nina loves being a real estate agent. Always answers your phone calls and returns phone calls immediately, which is very important to me. Very enthusiastic and always follows up on any questions or situations very quickly. I highly recommend her as an agent if you want to get your house sold, or if you want to buy a house. Very, very hard worker."

James D.

"Today we get the keys to our fabulous home!! A huge thanks to Nina Kurtz who fought 8 other buyers and got us the house of our dreams with her winning personality and expertise. Soooooo excited!!"

Jessica M.

"We met with a couple of different realtors in Topanga before we met Nina but once we met Nina we knew she was the one. She was like a good friend by our side guiding us through the whole process. Being new to Topanga, there were a lot of details in the home buying process here that we weren't familiar with. She was available every step of the way to answer questions promptly and thoroughly. She helped us negotiate with a tricky third party representing the seller and was successful in getting us a nice buyer credit. We also made dozens of visits to the property during escrow for inspections and contractor estimates and she was incredibly accommodating, switching her schedule around several times to accommodate ours. Nina truly loves the process of matching people with their new home and it shows in her work. She was always there and responded immediately to every text, email, and phone call right to the end even when we had to extend escrow for 2 weeks. Home buying (and selling) can be a stressful, exhausting process but she was a voice of genuine positivity and knowledgeable encouragement. She is truly a gem! We are so happy to have worked with her as a realtor and to now know her now as a friend."

"We came across the property on Sandalwood by mistake without even planing on placing an offer. My wife fell in love with the property instantly! We didn't work with an agent- We had the pleasure of meeting Nina who also represented the seller on the property. Nina was so nice, professional, and knowledgeable we clicked instantly! we decided to have Nina represent us and guess what! we had our offer accepted within 24 hours! Buying a house is probably one of the most important decisions of your life. it can be stressful and nerve-racking and communication is a key! Nina kept us in the loop every single day! it was a relief to have such a k knowledgable representative on our side and even though she represented both us and the seller she treated both of us fairly and respectfully! the transaction was so smooth we were able to close within less than 30 days! Amazing experience! I'm happy to say that by the end of our closing we gained Nina as a friend as well. we will definitely turn to Nina for any of our future real estate needs. Thank you, Nina, for helping us buy our dream home!"

Eli A.

"Nina assisted my husband and me during our first home-buying experience. As anyone can probably understand, treading such uncharted waters was incredibly scary for the both of us, but with Nina's assistance, determination and incredible support, we got through it unscathed and found our dream home. In a highly competitive market, we were fortunate to have such a strong force leading our team. Nina also has a wonderful network of people at her disposal. From lenders to appraisers to foundation specialists, we did our due diligence to find she only works with the best! We feel very lucky to have fallen into her web of wonders! Thank you for everything, Nina!"

Rebekah W.

"Nina was a wonderful agent. We were fortunate to be represented by both Nina and Kat Nitsou, both at Sotheby's, in the sale of our home in Topanga. We could not have asked for a better pair. Nina was very pleasant to work within general, very communicative, great dialogue, knowledgeable, and always responsive. She and Kat were there every step of the way giving us the support and focus we needed to complete a successful transaction. She was decisive, as well as positive and supportive when needed - a great combo. We are so grateful to Nina and Kat, and I look forward to our next step together...purchasing a new home! Highly recommend."

Foujean W.

"From the day we walked into her office, Nina took unbelievable care of us. Once she found out exactly what our family needed in a home, she went out of her way to find it for us. Nina went way beyond what we could have expected from an agent. She fiercely negotiated for us but managed to make every step of the way easy and very pleasant experience from start to finish. Her in-depth knowledge of the market and the genuine care she took of us, every step of the way, made us feel very secure. Nina found us our dream home. We feel very lucky to have her as our agent and so happy to be able to call her a dear friend."

"Nina Kurtz is the best! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house. Nina is a great negotiator and was very professional and respectful of all our requests throughout the whole process. Made our lives a lot easier. She has a lot of experience in SoCal and is very knowledgeable regarding everything from architectural histories to finding the right lender. She has a personable communication style which made it really easy to address all of our concerns. We could not imagine our home buying experience without her!"

Brenda C.

"Nina helped us rent our condo to some wonderful tenants. Her knowledge of the process was excellent, she was super responsive, and she helped us manage this complex transaction from two states away. She was able to give advice across a broad spectrum, from evaluating our tenants' creditworthiness to helping us decide the extent of our "make ready" work. She knows the area very well, her market analysis was always spot-on, and her reports and materials were always thorough and polished. I couldn't recommend her highly enough."

Catherine W.

"Nina was very professional and accommodating and worked for her clients and my best interests. Nina was always very quick to respond and prioritized my concerns like they were her own. Nina helped me to get into my dream home and was there every step of the way with me to ensure my goals were achieved. I strongly recommend Nina and her firm to help you to find your next dream home too. Thanks, Nina for all of the attention and support! I couldn't have done it without you."

Nic E.

"Nina is a real bulldog who will fight hard and won't let go before a deal is reached. In fact, I had to ask her to back down when I thought she was being too aggressive with her negotiating skills. Nina knew the market in Los Angeles and could have commanded a higher price than I instructed her to settle for. I definitely want her on my side before entering any transaction. Highly recommend her services."

Tony A.

"Nina was professional in every way and very supportive. She was sensitive to our needs, never pushy. She was very easy to work with and completely ethical. After we sold our home, she went the extra mile and helped us find a perfect house to rent. We would hire her any time we needed a real estate professional. We couldn't be more pleased with her services and her spirit of kindness and cooperation."

Debra S.

"Nina is very knowledgeable, patient with a keen negotiating ability and knack for creating positive outcomes for all involved. She is very thorough, gives great communication and is attentive to my questions and needs. I highly recommend Nina and would work with her again."

Ted N.

"Nina has an excellent fund of knowledge and experience in Topanga. She is always enthusiastic and meets every challenge with persistence, intelligence, and calm. Extremely hard-working, reliable, and motivated. I highly recommend her to anyone."
