    We recently moved out of Durham and sold our Trinity Park home. Without much thought, we knew we wanted to work with Adam as our listing agent, based on our both his reputation and our previous experiences with him. He is the premier agent for Trinity Park, Watts Hillandale, and other desirable neighborhoods in Durham. He knows the market inside and out and helped guide us through the process: getting the house ready for the market, homing in on the right list price, negotiating the sale, and then navigating the sale process. Adam has all the right contacts in terms of local contractors to help get the house ready, is extremely knowledgeable about the market, and has the right people lined up to deal with the closing process. Whether you're buying or selling, we recommend him without reservation.

    Adam is a first class realtor. He has helped us in 3 closings Adam has a dedicated staff with Dahlia and other members of the Nest team. He provided us information about similar properties together with market trends in Durham. This enabled us to get a range of listing prices and to develop a realistic negotiation strategy. He referred us to others in our purchase and sale of homes, like landscapers, plumbers, HVAC companies and home inspectors , and we would use him again .

    Adam's a different kind of realtor. While he has top realtor skills, he also consults unlike any other to make sure he knows exactly what you're looking for before and during the process - it's not just about getting the deal done, it's about getting the right deal done for his clients. Several times during our search and purchase process, Adam paused to make sure we were completely onboard and ready to move to the next step, something I've never experienced with a realtor. Adam also drove a particularly complex negotiation and closing process for our property, getting us exactly where we wanted to be. I'll gladly work with him again on our next real estate transaction and would heartily recommend him.

    We were grateful to have Adam Dickinson representing us through the process of buying a new house (new build) and selling a historic house in Trinity Park during a stressful market with increasing interest rates. His experience and knowledge of the local market and home construction are top level. He and his team were professional and responsive and were available to help every step of the way. I would 100% recommend Adam to anyone and we will use him again for any future real estate transactions.

    Adam was an excellent resource, especially when looking for a home out of state. He had great input on location and proximity to everything in the Durham area. He gave honest input on every home he looked at for us and made it clear he wasn't only looking to make a sale. We will definitely work with his firm for any future opportunities.

    I've bought 2 houses and sold 2 houses with Adam and his team, most recently selling this summer. Adam made the process so easy, suggesting a plan to sell quickly with the ideal balance of effort put in and profit received. We are always pleased with the outcome working with Adam.

    Adam Dickinson of Nest Realty took us on as clients as we contemplated a move to the Durham/Chapel Hill area for family reasons. �We were not convinced to make the move, and we were, to be honest, very picky clients. �We had certain things we needed in addition to what we wanted, and turned down several homes, including one we actually had an offer accepted on. �Throughout this, Adam remained patient and understanding. He worked very hard to incorporate our wishes into the homes he presented, and I believe he truly wanted to understand us so that he could find us a home we would be happy in. �Throughout, he remained low key and not aggressive. In addition, Adam has extensive knowledge of home mechanics and construction issues, which is invaluable to a purchaser.� He steered us away from many homes that had problems, and demonstrated deep knowledge of local conditions. Alternatively, when we spotted a home we wanted to see, Adam arranged it promptly with no questions asked.So, when Adam called me with a house that we should see, (after nine months of tolerating us!), I made some excuses regarding schedule, conflicts, etc. �In response, it was only one of two times Adam ever insisted on us seeing a home immediately, so I took notice. �We changed our schedules and went to see the home, which was in fact perfect.�We made a solid offer with his advice, it was accepted without hassle, and closed within 3 weeks. �Adam is the realtor you want if you need someone who is thoughtful, knowledgeable, and will be there when you need him.� Having bought and sold several homes, I can say with confidence that Adam is the best realtor we have ever used.� You won't be disappointed.� �Robert Korn, MD

    We connected with Adam shortly after our tenants moved out of our property which we had owned and rented for more than 35 years. The house was obviously in need of quite a bit of touchup and repairs, so Adam's first move was to put us in touch with a contractor who did a great job at a reasonable price of making the house look new again. After the repair work was done, Adam listed the property well above what we originally thought we would get for it, and within days an offer came through at an even higher price. There was some negotiation required as some additional repair work was suggested by the home inspector. But Adam handled the final negotiations professionally and we were still able to make far more from the sale than we had expected and recouped the expenses we had spent on fixing the house up. All in all, it was a great experience and we thank Adam for seeing it through.
