What our clients say...
Cheryl Lofland, Belchertown, MA (Buyer)
"Nicole Tavares was wonderful to work with. She worked with us to sell our house and then look for a new one. Anytime we would email or text her she responded quickly (if would take a couple days she would let us know). Nicole explained things so we could understand and traveled several places before we found our house in Monson. We all knew this was the house for us. Thank you Nicole for all your time and patience with us. We absolutly love our new home!!"
Paul from Palmer Ma (Buyer)
"Having Nicole Tavares as our realtor put us at ease through the entire process of buying our first home. She was patient with us and understood we didn�t want to jump in to anything too quickly, but when it was important to act quickly, we thoroughly trusted her. Nicole was a great communicator, very flexible about showings, and had a great sense of humor making an experience that some would call stressful, much more enjoyable. We absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a home."
Jesse Danek, Belchertown (Buyer)
"As a first time home buyer, I was very nervous and did not know what I was getting involved with. Nichole found a house that fits my needs, made sure I was completely happy with, and walked me through step by step from start to finish. I thank her for her patience and everything she has done for me."
Richard Seppala, Ashburn, VA (Seller)
"As indicated previously Nicole did a great job handling the sale of our house - from reviewing the property, suggestions on getting the house ready for sale, setting a price and conducting the open house. The house sold the first weekend on the market with multiple offers! She was also helpful in following the sale through the closing."
Edward Zemba, East Longmeadow MA (Seller)
Nicole is exceptional in her handling of clients. Based on our past experience, there was no question who we were going to work with.
In spite of how it might look on this review, I am known as a tough grader. Nicole goes above and beyond.
She doesn't only care about the sale. (Although that's obviously important to both her and the seller.) She cares about the family and the process itself. I have seen her repeatedly put her clients before herself.
Claire Stefanik, Easthampton (Seller)
Nicole really tries to understand and help her clients. I felt I was working with someone who really cared about any questions I had even when they were silly, but never made me feel foolish. Gave us helpful hints on how to show the house in a more favorable setting.
very stressful for me on the sale of the house, and when I was confused about a certain aspect Nicole took the time to explain so I understood. I'm very happy and pleased that I had someone like Nicole to get me through this process.
I would highly recommend Nicole Tavares to my family and friends.
Galen Wilson, Belchertown MA (Seller)
Mrs. Nicole Tavares is a professional. She understands that her job is important, not just to Keller Williams, but to her clients as well. A failure to not meet the needs of her costumers (clients), would be a failure � Nicole does not and will not fail. Obviously, selling our house was priority one. However, answering our questions; addressing our concerns; explaining terms was�is where Nicole shines. Nicole is great at her job - she is a professional!
And, she sold our house in 10 weeks.
Mrs. Nicole Tavares performed several �Open Houses�. She advertised our house on numerous sites and even on her own personal social media site. She kept us informed every step of the way. She did everything she could to sell our house, and it worked.
The survey tells the story. But, Nicole�s professionalism and �stick to it� attitude is what sold our house.
The above survey questions only partially define Mrs. Nicole Tavares. I would like to add to the survey.
Integrity - Outstanding
Loyalty - Outstanding
Commitment - Outstanding
Decisiveness - Outstanding
THIS, better defines Mrs. Tavares.
Great Company with Superior agents - Mrs. Nicole Tavares
We are happy! Thank you, Mrs. Nicole Tavares.
Michelle Z (Seller)
"Nicole Tavares is an awesome agent. She knows her stuff and her business. You are her priority. From the first interaction with Nicole I knew she was the right person to work with because she came prepared- she already had her homework done! Selling my rental property with Nicole was easy. She listened to my needs and when I had questions she had answers, or if I didn't understand something Nicole had time and patience to walk me through the whys. Hands down Nicole Tavares is the agent that makes things happen! Thank you Nicole!"
Derek J. Docherty South Windsor, CT (Buyer)
"Nicole has an obvious degree of understanding the full spectrum of selling/ purchasing a home. She was able to walk me through every step of the home buying process in detail, having it be my first purchase, this aspect was critical! I highly recommend Nicole."
Jillian Bowyer-Springfield MA (Buyer)
"It has been an amazing experience working with Nicole. Not only did she sell my previous home professionally and efficiently, she also had great determination and consistency in helping me find a new one. I could not be more pleased with her and will continue to recommend her to friends and family. Thanks Nicole for helping me find a place to call home!"
Gary Picard Chicopee (Seller)
"Nicole Tavares at Keller Williams Realty was exceptionally professional and made the selling process smooth, efficient and enjoyable. I would highly recommend Nicole to my family and friends."
Antonio Rivera (Seller)
Initially she was working with me on a Connecticut Home Purchase. She was very attentive to my needs. I was working with another Keller Real-estate broker in MA for my home sale and she was easily accommodating when I asked if she could assist with my home sale in MA as well. She communicated my wishes to the other broker and simplified my home selling process.
Nicole is a true real-estate professional. She is on top of her business. She kept me abreast of every detail and exceeded my expectations. She managed to assist me with the home's solar company contract transfer as well as assisting me in dealing with the attorneys involved with the sale and everything went very smoothly.
Nicole was never pushy. She was a good listener and was able to understand my needs. Nicole pointed out potential pitfalls such as structural and other potentially hidden problems of concern during several home showings. She was always upfront and made her remarks in a caring manner. I felt comfortable working with her because she never made me feel pressured in any way.
Nicole was honest and upfront about what my home value was from the start. She seemed to be most interested in marketing my home in a fair and realistic way. She was able to accentuate the good features and did an excellent job with the initial write up and open house preceding's.
Seller - Palmer MA (Seller)
"Nicole was wonderful to work with. She exemplifies professionalism, timeliness, and dedication to her clients on a personal level. The care and detail she put into the suggestions to prepare the house for selling were right on the mark. I personally know many other people who have worked with her and had a similar experience. I would highly recommend her to family and friends."
Stefanie and Eddie Millner (Buyer)
This was my second time using Nicole. She was understanding and listened to everything we wanted in a home. Any question we had a long the way to would answer it or get an answer to us quickly. Needless to say I will countine to work with her in my future.
Thank you Nicole for everything you did!
Jillian Bowyer, Ludlow (Buyer)
"I have worked with Nicole on buying and selling my previous homes. She is very easy to work with, knows her stuff and is on top of things every step of the way. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends and family."
Linda Stout Springfield (Seller)
"Nicole Tavares was very professional and knowledgeable in how to sell my fathers home in an as is sale. She was accurate in how to advertise to create interest in buyers. She was excellent in communicating with us and guiding us through offers made and the sale of the home and what we needed to do for things to go smoothly. She made herself available to us at all times. I will have Nicole Tavares as my agent in any future sale or buying of any property. I would without hesitation refer her to any of my friends or family ."
Lisa & John Santo Ludlow, Ma 01056 (Seller)
Nicole is very good. Her feedback and performance is outstanding. We would use her or refer her to friends and family if they need a relator.
Thanks again, Nicole!
Amanda Sowa, Belchertown, MA (Buyer)
"We were first time home-buyers with a LOT of questions trying to buy a home from across the state. Not only did Nicole have answers, but they were clear, concise and prompt. She was patient with our minimal understanding of both the contract and financing process and we never felt out of the loop. She gently reminded us of all dates, requirements and deadlines and we never once felt out of the loop. But most of all, she truly cares about her clients' experience and understands the emotion and stress behind buying a home. She is warm and welcoming but also not afraid to advocate for her clients when necessary. I would recommend Nicole to anyone needing an agent to buy or sell a home."
Debbie Landry Springfield (Seller)
"We had a rough road dealing with Bank of America and Nicole stayed positive and gave us encouragement throughout the process. She gave the right amount of cheering for us to get to the end of our journey."
Ryan & Valerie Gallagher, formerly of Enfield, CT (Seller)
Nicole has been wonderful! We used her in the past and have referred her to our friends and family. She is knowledgeable, attentive, and very responsive!
We could not be happier with how quickly Nicole was able to get an offer to us!
Dan Bessette, Springfield, MA (Buyer)
"Nicole was great at walking us through the steps and found solutions to any of the issues along the way. She was great to work with and I'd recommend her to anybody in need of a qualified realtor!"
G. Bessette, Ludlow (Seller)
Right from our first meeting, Nicole Tavares answered our questions and understood our attachment to the property. She was respectful of our limited knowledge of the selling process and educated us to our satisfaction. All of our family felt confident in choosing Nicole.
We highly recommend Nicole Tavares to anyone looking to sell a home. She is a true professional and is kind and understanding.
What a wonderful world this would be if we could all emulate Nicole's qualities in whatever jobs we hold.
Emily, Ludlow (Buyer)
"This is my second home purchase with Nicole Tavares. She went above and beyond, again! Nicole is knowledgeable, understanding, and timely (she even answered my calls late into the night!). Nicole helped me find the exact home I was looking for and facilitated a speedy close with no issues. I couldn't be more delighted with the results and thankful for all of Nicole's expertise throughout the process."
Lorene Nuccio-Rivera Palmer MA (Buyer)
I highly recommend Nicole Tavares to everyone who is buying or selling a home! Nicole was very approachable and she knew what we were looking for and worked very hard trying to find the perfect home for us. She was never pushy and she always put our needs first. It was a great feeling to have Nicole with us through this process and I always knew she had our best interests at heart. Nicole expertly guiding us and made everything go smoothly no matter what bumps were in the road. We knew she was looking out for our best interests.
Nicole was on top of everything! I was amazed on how well she organized each step of the process in purchasing our new home. Nicole made sure we were on target with all the paperwork to make sure our house closed on time.
I felt very comfortable relying on Nicole for her opinion of each house we looked at and her knowledge of the area and community.
Her performance was outstanding. She was very timely and patient. We looked at a lot of houses and she was never bothered if we were not interested. She always encouraged us saying "Don't worry the right house is out there for you" and she was right!
I would only use Nicole Tavares from Keller Williams Realty if I was to ever sell or buy another home. I had complete faith in her opinion and in her managing the purchase of our home. I enjoyed meeting with her at the home showings and she was always willing to work with our schedule and managed to get showings for all the houses we wanted to see. By the end of our time together she felt like family to us!
Andrea & John Gokey, Springfield, MA (Buyer)
Words cannot clearly describe the excellent, above & beyond service that we received from Nicole Tavares of Keller Williams Realty.
She was knowledgeable and understanding of our wants & needs, and very accessible. She was prompt in getting back to us with responses to any questions or concerns we had and always clear in her explanations. This was especially important because we were first time home buyers and really had NO idea what we were doing. Her face to face interactions and phone/email correspondence with us were always very professional and friendly.
We never once felt pressured into making a offer on a property we weren't sure about and we never once felt like we were bothering her in anyway with our search for the perfect home. We felt that Nicole wasn't just about "making the sale" but was instead dedicated to helping us and genuinely cared about us find our dream home. Her patience and flexibility was very much appreciated when it came to scheduling so many (A LOT) of showings at our convenience.
I also wanted to mention that my husband and I needed recommendations for so many different things to even just get the house-buying process started, and every single person/company that Nicole referred us to were incredible in terms of customer service and cooperation.
I would NOT hesitate to recommend Nicole to anyone that is looking for a realtor. In fact it would be my pleasure to be able to refer such an outstanding individual to my family, friends, and acquaintances. In the event that we should need realty services in the future, I will not have far to look as I am confident that I would once again choose Nicole Tavares.
While we were searching and reviewing homes, Nicole would say "You will know it when you find it!" and we sure did!
Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts!
Truly, Andrea & John Gokey
David M, Wilbraham (Seller)
"After working with Nicole the first time to buy our house, it really was a no brainer to use her to sell our house after the experience we had the first time. We were on the same page the whole time. Nicole is very comfortable and easy to work with. We will be using her to purchase our next home with no hesitation!"
Galen Wilson (Buyer)
Mrs. Tavares is a professional! Her professionalism coupled along with a friendly demeanor makes her, the only agent I will deal with. The fact that she works for Keller Williams is a plus.
Other attributes would be, loyalty, commitment, decisiveness, excellence... I can go on and on, Nicole is the best, that�s it.
I am very pleased with Keller Williams. I will use them again, real soon.
I have zero complaints about Nicole Tavares and as many for Keller Williams - Great Team!
Harold Blanco, Manager at PBI Properties LLC - Longmeadow, MA (Buyer)
"Nicole was highly recommended by Elisa Poplawski. This was not an easy purchase but I feel lucky to be able to start this new business with the help of Nicole Tavares. She was wonderful and very resourceful. There was not a single thing that I asked her that she didn't have the answer to it. She is very professional and always available. So, thank you for recommending her."
Chelsea Marques Ludlow/Chicopee (Buyer)
"Nicole Tavares is great to work with. She is patient and always gave good advice. She got me in to see many places very quickly. She will be my realtor for life. CM"
Peter McMahon Ludlow, Ma (Buyer)
"Nicole Tavares was terrific! Always responsive and attentive to details. She was very honest and gave her professional, knowledgeable advice where and when needed. Nicole was never pushy but always direct. She handled herself in a very professional manner at all times and got the deal done (in warp speed)!"
Irene Costello, Springfield, MA (Buyer)
Going into the home buying process, I was so nervous. I am a young female purchasing a home on my own, which made me extremely concerned about finding someone i could trust to guide me through the whole process. Nicole blew me away. From the start she was transparent and helpful, especially through Covid. Nicole was even transparent enough to tell me when to pause my process to intelligently navigate the pandemic. I could not imagine having a better person to work with or a better experience.
I really appreciated how attentive Nicole was from the start. I was referred to her by a colleague and within 24 hours, we had set up a time to meet and talk to each other. I really appreciated Nicole�s patience with me as a first time home buyer, she answered every single question in a thoughtful and nurturing way that didn�t make me feel uneducated.
Again, Nicole was beyond helpful throughout the process. She was pointing out potential sore spots in homes that I hadn�t noticed and was always thinking a step ahead. I really appreciated her attitude for going to a dozen showings that didn�t result in an offer; to her, it was just another house to cross off the list. She helped me get through the emotional toll of looking at houses.
Nicole was the perfect agent. She was always available to answer my questions. She was always pleasant and transparent. She was so personable. By the end, it felt like reaching out to a friend or mentor, rather than a real estate agent. She is a wonderful person to work with.
Jimmy and Katie, Monson MA�(Buyer)
Nicole Tavares was an excellent representative, and we will be recommending her to anyone househunting or looking to list. If the time comes we decide to move, she will be our first call. Nicole made our first time buying experience a joy! Nicole was it! She was the go to, and she exceeded our expectations, and now we know what a great Realtor is! Her personality and work ethic make working with her an absolute pleasure!
John Roberts Belchertown (Buyer)
"Nicole Tavares was very patient showing us multiple homes over a year, never giving us the impression we were wasting her time. She always had a smile and would say maybe the next one will be the one. She is a professional."
Kevin, Longmeadow MA�(Buyer)
"My wife and I highly recommend Nicole Tavares! As first-time home buyers, we appreciated Nicole's patience in walking us through the process step by step and answering our many questions! Nicole is very easy to work with, and knowledgeable in her craft. She is highly responsive, and remained professional and polite throughout the process, even when potential deals fell through. We trust her judgment completely and look forward to working with her again in the future!"
Eddie & Stefanie Springfield�(Buyer)
"I was really lucky to have the best realtor in western mass Nicole tavares. You gave us advise with every house we looked at.

Ashley Lomma - Easthampton�(Buyer)

Jillian Bowyer (Seller)
"I loved working with Nicole Tavares. She is very knowledgeable and professional. Nicole walked me through the process and was on top of the sale of my home every step of the way. I was extremely impressed with her level of dedication to me as a client. I look forward to working with Nicole on the purchase of my new home."
Charlie and Kathy Chaconas (Seller)
Our house was sold in 4-5 days. Nicole had an open house a few days after sign went up and approximately 20 perspective buyers viewed the house. Amazing!
We have not bought a home in 38 years , so you could say that we were novice home buyers. Nicole assisted us navigate the process of home buying. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and always accessible.
Ali, Longmeadow, MA (Buyer)
"I first contacted Nicole over a year ago. Our family knew that we would be moving to the area in the near future, but had only started very casually looking at homes for sale. Nicole was very responsive and set me up in the MLS system, and also provided me with demographic reports for the few towns we were considering. We ended up deciding to rent in town for almost a year, but then came across a home for sale that we absolutely loved and contacted Nicole again. Despite things moving very quickly over those first several days, she was extremely responsive throughout the entire process, getting back to us quickly via text and email and coordinating with the seller's agent. She actually negotiated our offer while on vacation out of the country! This was our first home purchase and I had a LOT of questions regarding the whole process. Nicole was very patient and always answered our questions thoroughly and clearly. On top of her real estate expertise, she's also just a really nice person! It was really a pleasure working with her."
"Nicole was always available whether through text, phone call or email to answer any questions we had during the home buying process! Super professional and always kept us in the loop. Thank you Nicole for your amazing work getting us our second home!"
Deanna Martin, Chicopee Ma. (Buyer)
My son and I have used Nicole on previous occasions and have always been very pleased. She is on top of everything and keeps you on top of everything. I would strongly recommend her to any one.
Leigha Schmidt, Chicopee, MA (Buyer)
"Nicole is an amazing agent. She communicates well and efficiently. I have worked with her in the past and will continue to use her for all of my real estate needs! She is very knowledgeable and does every thing that she can to make sure her client is happy and taken care of! I would not think of using anyone else!"
Gianna & Casey Gomes (Buyer)
"Nicole was the best person to help us find our dream home! She was extremely honest when viewing homes and really focused on what we truly wanted in our future home! She is a family friend and it was nice to work with a familiar face, but this is not the only reason we chose her. We decided to work with Nicole because she is extremely knowledgeable in her field of real estate and made us understand a lot of things us new home buyers were unaware of. From a financial standpoint to the physical structural details of a home that we may have overlooked. She definitely has a passion for what she does and we will absolutely recommend her to anyone we know looking for a home or trying to sell! We are so pleased with how smoothly everything went in this process, largely because of Nicole�s assistance! We love her and can�t wait to invite her for a dinner soon! She is now part of our family!"

"When faced with the impossible....Nicole delivered. We were faced with a very difficult commercial transaction and throughout the entire process Nicole kept our side cool, calm, collected and informed when we had doubts. She took every call and returned every message. If you�re looking for someone that will work tirelessly to protect your best interests give her a call! Thanks again!"
Barbara Amaio Wethersfield CT (Seller)

She was very pleasant and knowledgeable.
Nicole was awesome."
Laurie Dymon, Ludlow ma (Seller)
Nicole made the process easy for me and helped me tremendously in this difficult time in my life!
Couldn't have done it without her compassion and guidance!
Shes the best!
Emily, Ludlow (Seller)
"Nicole Tavares sold my home in less than a week! She removed all the anxiety throughout the process, answered my questions with patience, and advocated for my best interest the whole time. At every stage, I was impressed by her extensive knowledge and professionalism. I couldn't be happier with the results and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nicole to the people I care about most!"
Josh Leone (Buyer)
I first met Nicole by attending an open house for a property that she was selling and she was very honest with me in answering all questions about the property. When I told her the property wasn't a fit for me she had agreed to help me find something that matched my needs more closely.
After that, I worked with Nicole looking at houses for over 2 years and in that time I changed from looking at multi-families to condos to single family homes and I looked in different parts of western Massachusetts and CT. Nicole was very patient with me the entire home and adjusted searches to meet my current needs until I found something that I was very happy with.
When I finally found the property I was looking for, Nicole happened to be the seller's agent as well. She was honest the entire time and negotiated between both of us a few different times to ensure both parties were satisfied with the deal. She is also fast as responding to any questions and was very thorough throughout the entire home buying experience, which I greatly appreciated since it was my first home!
I would definitely recommend Nicole to both buyers and sellers and I know her experience will help you find exactly what you're looking for!
Alyssa, Enfield (Buyer)
"Nicole is amazing!!! Helped me through every step of the way and always answered my texts and calls right away. She made buying our first house simple and easy. Would recommend her to everyone!!"
Ron & Pat Proulx Ludlow (Seller)
Pat and I would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere gratitude to Nicole Tavares who has been our rock during a very difficult process. She made the selling and buying processes work like clockwork, kept us informed, was very professional, always available and gave us the best of advice anyone could expect. It all worked out like clockwork in great part to Nicole�s efforts.
We would highly recommend Nicole, of Keller Williams, to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home.
Once again, many thanks to you Nicole from both of us!
