Happy Clients Are The Key To My Success!


After making the decision to retire in Chapel Hill, Nikki showed us several lovely neighborhoods that met our needs. For each neighborhood, she pointed out the types of homes available and the amenities in each area. After educating us on the options available, we found a wonderful new home in a great neighborhood. I was so impressed how Nikki was able to guide us in such a calm professional manner. She provided all the information and assistance we needed to make an informed decision. Nikki’s a wonderful accomplished real estate agent, and I recommend her highly.

Nikki was our Buyer’s Agent when we moved from the northeast to Chapel Hill. She did an outstanding job assisting us every step of the way. The entire home buying process was totally stress free thanks to her help and expertise. We found a great home in a great community and couldn’t be happier. We are completely satisfied.

Nikki sold a darling townhouse we co-owned with our daughter. Nikki did several open houses, was always available to show the home and followed up on all other agent showings. She and I staged the then empty townhouse so it looked great--and we had fun.
Nikki is serious about pricing the home right for a good and quick sale. Rather than try for an unrealistic price, and spend money owning the home month after month, she helped us price it right. We got a good, fair price for the house and later sales in that neighborhood supported that it was priced right.
It sold in a tough market, in good time, and closed efficiently and well. Thanks Nikki!!
I've since gotten to know Nikki much better and I am so impressed in her focus on community. Too often people buy the house but forget how important the community is to livability. Nikki tries to help match both the house AND the neighborhood and services.


Nikki went above and beyond her duties. You can be assured if you use Nikki to buy or sell your home that she will work with you tirelessly to help you reach your objective. She is knowledgeable about the local market as well as national trends. She is fair, honest and a tough negotiator. She really does put the client first. And, she still works for you after the transaction is over. She is my Realtor For Life.

Nikki was wonderful! She knows the Meadowmont market and how to sell it. It was a somewhat difficult process, but she was there, smoothing the way, at every step. She helped us obtain an appraiser; a handyman; a housecleaner; a painter; an HVAC company; movers; and more. Everyone that she recommended was great; and she supervised them as well. She's knowledgable, professional; trustworthy; and a genuinely nice person. We could not have done better.

Personable, helpful, accessible, dependable, seemed to have my best interests foremost, listened intently to my needs and was able to shorten my home search with appropriate suggestions.

Nikki takes her career as a real estate professional very seriously and does a great job. She cares about community and relationships and works hard to maintain friendships. She's a natural at it! I highly recommend her as a real estate agent.

Nikki was a godsend for our friend who was making a difficult move from the northeast to the Chapel Hill area of North Carolina, and could only be here a couple of times before she would need to make the move. Nikki found the best properties, organized the whole endeavor, and escorted our friend in the small windows of time she could be in the area to look at houses, and the result was total success! I know she has done the same for many others too. 

Nikki Rice is so very well suited for real estate, with an outgoing, warm, friendly personality, an equal measure of integrity, and a heart of gold. I recommend her highly.

Nikki has been my realtor since 2003. She knows about real estate trends and educates me about Chapel Hill and my neighborhood. It wasn't a surprise to her when the prices reached their peak and then dropped. She is smart and hard working and will tell you the truth even if it's the 'hard truth'. Her clients' needs are her priority and she works tirelessly for them. What more can you ask? I have recommended her to friends and colleagues and will continue to do so because she is knowledgeable, reliable, and a good negotiator. You will love Nikki.

I moved to Chapel Hill, NC in 2000 with my two younger children who were in high school at the time.  We chose Chapel Hill because the school system has such a great reputation.  Previously, I was a military spouse and moved around 17 times in 21 years.  We had lived in Germany, Niamey, Niger in West Africa, and SHAPE, Belgium.  To me, moving is a new adventure!  Which is why it is a natural move to help other people navigate the buying and selling process of their homes....
