Nick and his team listed and sold our property in Redwood City’s Edgewood Park—he has in depth knowledge of the area’s residential market and neighborhoods. Nick has great broker relationships, so he knows both what is on the market, what is likely to come to market, and has all the details on comparable transactions. Because of this, Nick was able to position and price our property accurately to achieve a successful and profitable outcome. In addition to being very experienced and professional, Nick is a joy to work with.

Michael & Manuela Mischke-Reeds
We worked with Nick to sell our unique Menlo Park home — his marketing strategy was not just about exposure, it was about communicating what made our home different in a way that generated more offers — this combined with his recommended timing and negotiation skills helped us net the highest price at the time for a home in our neighborhood. Great experience—we recommend Nick to anyone ready to market and sell their home.
Home Seller, Menlo Park:
Nick is a great real estate professional. We have sold a home and bought two homes with him, always going back due to not only his ability to be honest about where the market is, but his negotiation skills as well. We stay in touch with him regularly and rarely make a decision about what to do with our home (remodel impacts, contractors, etc…) without first reaching out for his opinion. As a busy executive, I have great comfort in his opinion, knowing I can trust it and just run with his recommendations. We recommend him to all our colleagues when they hint of getting a new home or moving the bay area.
Home Buyer & Seller, Menlo Park:
Buying and selling a home is well-known as one of the most stressful experiences one will encounter. That all changes for the better when you engage a truly professional realtor. Nick Granoski combines professionalism and sound industry knowledge with a warm personality. He takes the time to know the client, their needs, desires, and lifestyle. Working with Nick, the process of buying and selling a home was minimally stressful, and downright enjoyable; all yielding fabulous results. Nick earned my highest recommendation!
Home Buyer & Seller, Redwood City:
Nick represented us when we sold our house in Palo Alto. He was a consummate professional every step of the way and an absolute pleasure to work with. We were based in NYC during the entire process and Nick calmly and meticulously took care of every detail. He provided invaluable market insights and executed on an incredibly efficient and effective marketing plan. In summary, Nick did an exceptional job and I recommend him highly.
Home Seller, Palo Alto:
We almost sold our family home for what we thought was a good off-market offer thinking we’d save time, effort, and money by avoiding real estate fees. Wrong!
Fortunately we were referred to Nick and decided to list with him after listening to his approach to doing business in a somewhat unbelievable sellers market. Nick advised us on important things we hadn’t considered such as accurate pricing, list timing and demand creation. We learned that even in this market, you can leave a lot of money on the table if you¹re not working with a successful, full-time Realtor for what is in reality, a large business transaction, and in our case an emotional transaction. We believed in Nick and ended up netting much more money on the sale of our home. My sister and I recommend him highly as you really do need good representation to maximize your home sale—even in a very hot market.
Home Seller, Los Altos:
Nick sold our house in the Crescent Park neighborhood of Palo Alto. He did a phenomenal job. He was very organized and thoughtful about developing a marketing strategy to create competitive tension and sense of scarcity in order to realize the highest possible price. We ended up receiving multiple offers and selling the house materially above the asking price (and well in excess of the price quoted by other agents). We were ecstatic with the whole process. We would recommend Nick unequivocally.
Charles & Lisa Newton, Atherton
I highly recommend Nick. He expertly managed the entire process. He was responsive and detailed oriented. His calm, professional demeanor helped us to handle the pressure of buying and selling our house…

I have worked with Nick twice. He was focused, professional and unwavering in helping us find our home 10 years ago. When we decided to sell the house, Nick stepped in and took control. He delivered on every promise, from vendors to marketing to managing the transaction. It was a seamless experience, he handled the buyers concerns perfectly, insulated us from the transaction, conveyed value to prospects and most importantly, we received a good price and a “clean deal”. I would use Nick again, he is a serious professional that will get the job done.
Home Seller, Monte Sereno:
My husband and I love the home Nick helped us purchase in Palo Alto’s Leland Manor neighborhood. Nick was also instrumental in selling the North Palo Alto property we had lived in for fifteen years. Nick’s knowledge about the selling and purchasing of real estate made us feel confident we were making educated decisions. Thank you Nick for your guidance and professionalism. We look forward to recommending you to friends ready to buy or sell in the area.

Why would anyone use another agent? Nick made everything so easy. As a result of his efforts, our place sold so fast!

Mark & Yvonne Templeton, Woodside
Nick is outstanding real estate professional in every way. It is a pleasure to work with him, and he always puts the client first. He provides deep market knowledge and insights. I highly recommend him!
John Herr, Palo Alto
We decided to move from Noe Valley down to Palo Alto and selected Nick Granoski as our realtor after interviewing several people at different firms. We noticed a “coming soon” sign in front of a home in Downtown Palo Alto and contacted Nick about the property. In spite of having a vacation scheduled to start the next day, Nick jumped into action.
The house wasn’t on the MLS yet, but Nick tracked down the sellers and got us in for a private showing. The listing agent was trying to pick up both sides of the deal, and was not being very cooperative. Ignoring his objections, Nick moved forward and helped us understand the history of the property, relevant comps and put forward a strong offer at a reasonable price. Over the next few days while Nick was supposed to be on vacation, there was a flurry of offers, counteroffers and negotiation.
In working with Nick, the things that stood out for us were:
- Excellent understanding of the true market value of a property and what it would end up selling for.
- Strong negotiating skills and a sense of where we could push and where we couldn’t.
- Respect for what we were willing to pay for a particular property and care not to push beyond that.
- Cheerful sacrifice of his vacation to negotiate the deal on our house.
We’ve already recommended Nick to some friends who are relocating from Boston and will continue to send people his way in the future. He did an outstanding job for us and we feel fortunate to have worked with him.
Steve Chanin & Jessie Dotson, Palo Alto
Nick sold our house in Palo Alto–the results were great, and he is great to work with. Super knowledgeable about the market, and he runs a very tight ship. He has very high integrity, always comes through, and is fun! I have also worked with him to rent another house, and the experience was just as good. You can’t find a better broker to work with!
Alan and Ava Eagle, Palo Alto
Our experience with Nick Granoski has been nothing but EXCEPTIONAL. Nick has sold our house AND helped us buy our new home. Through both transactions, he carried himself with nothing but absolute professionalism and grace. Working with Nick is truly having a person who has your best interest. From listening to your needs, follow throughs, knowledgeable advice, he has exceeded our expectations throughout the entire process. Buying and selling a property can be stressful and having Nick as our agent is a huge relief. Nick is our Life Long Agent!

Adrian and Jane Barry, Palo Alto & Willow Glen
Long before you sold our Palo Alto home, and after meeting you at several open houses in Palo Alto, I told my husband that you would be the best realtor to work with. We did work with you and we’ll be glad to recommend you to friends when they plan to sell—you were always ready to answer our many questions and you guided us with tact and patience.
Alan and Michelle Grundmann
Nick has done an outstanding job each time I’ve worked with him, responding quickly to our situation and getting our properties on the market rapidly. His team is extremely professional and they were expert at preparing our properties for sale, from landscaping to minor repairs to painting and staging. And in both cases, the properties sold for the highest value per sq ft in the neighborhood, with numerous attractive offers. I would recommend Nick highly and hope to have the opportunity to work with him again.
Roy Chua, Saratoga
After working with another Agent for a period of time and accomplishing very little, we realized we needed someone with clear knowledge of the market, strong financial skills, professionalism and confidence. Nick brought all that to the table and then some. He quickly assessed the situation made recommendations and in a relatively short period time sold our family home. This was the home we grew up in and although it was a difficult time for us; Nick was thoughtful and patient in his approach. Professional, thoughtful, sharp, no nonsense…….thanks Nick!
Abra Ruven-Siegel, Palo Alto
We met Nick through an open house and he helped us sell a house in Menlo Park. He was knowledgeable, patient and a consummate professional. He gave candid and accurate advice and he guided us expertly through the process. He made sure our closing happened seamlessly and on our schedule. We would work wtih Nick again and highly recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling.
Kathy Fields & Joe Povas, Menlo Park
Nick Granoski brought clarity to our view of the marketplace as we investigated our home purchasing options. Nick’s assistance reviewing inventory and driving decision based on value was been instrumental given the changing conditions in the peninsula market. His consistent hard work and patience proved he is a partner with a long term view of the business. Nick combined those attributes to drive closure at the appropriate time.
Matt & Mimi Leary
Nick helped my wife and I find our first home, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We really enjoyed working with him and appreciated his honesty and advice every step of the way. We feel like Nick spoiled us by making our first home-buying experience super painless and straight-forward, for which we are truly grateful!
Eddie and Dohee Lim, Menlo Park
My wife and I worked with Nick to buy a house—he was very attentive and listened to our needs and interests. He did not try to push us directions inconsistent with these. When it came to making offers and negotiating a deal, he was efficient and effective. We even made one offer while out of the country. With Nick’s help we bought a house in Palo Alto and didn’t exceed the budget, which is no small accomplishment. Would definitely recommend Nick to our friends.
Chris and Becky Eversull, Menlo Park
Nick has been absolutely great. We had an unusual, complex situation that he handled with professionalism, compassion and grace…
Home Seller and Buyer:
Connie Lefkowits, Los Altos Hills
We decided to work with Nick after interviewing several realtors. We had heard very good things about him from many neighbors who had worked with him. Not only is Nick an “area specialist”—he is truly a real estate specialist, able to professionally navigate the entire process from before putting our home on the market, to after close of escrow. We have and will continue to recommend him to friends who want to sell their home.
Larry & Kerry Lane, Palo Alto
Nick helped us both buy and sell our house in Palo Alto. He is unerringly professional and has great expertise and insights. But it was his rare combination of being both knowledgeable and warm that I appreciated most. He made sure we knew the realities the market and helped us make good decisions, while being understanding of the very personal event that is buying and selling a home.
Sumana Rao, Palo Alto
Thank you for the excellent job–I appreciate that you eliminated traditional “real estate” verbiage and imagery in favor of innovative marketing methods. In addition to your Marketing expertise, I appreciate your straightforward, honest delivery of information—contrary to my original beliefs about real estate agents, you do not over-promise or under-deliver. This truly sets you apart from others in the industry.
Kevin McPhee, Palo Alto
As trustee of my mother’s estate, I had a responsibility to sell her home for the highest price possible. Nick Granoski was referred to us by one of our trusted advisors and we are so happy with the results of his work. We decided to work with him based on his area expertise, solid experience and sound advice.
Nick put together a team of professionals to prepare the property for sale in an amazingly short period of time. His ability to navigate quickly in a changing market helped me feel comfortable knowing I had met my responsibilities as trustee.
Nick has a rare combination of business expertise and integrity—we would highly recommend him to anyone selling their home.
Susan Thompson-Short, Palo Alto
We learned how important it is to have a trusted real estate advisor and excellent facilitator when buying our house—thanks to Nick we now own a home we love. He focused 100% on our needs and goals and delivered the results we wanted…
Rob & Eugenie Atherton, Menlo Park
My husband and I found our dream house in Atherton thanks to the efforts of Nick Granoski. We came to work with Nick through a referral after my husband took a job that relocated us to the Silicon Valley. Having just had a baby, we moved here without a house and with a newborn to look for a home while living in temporary housing. Nick made what could have been a very stressful situation as easy as possible. We had total confidence that we would find a suitable home working with Nick but our expectations were surpassed. I have no doubt that Nick’s role was a key reason why we will now live in our dream house. Nick exhibited a knowledge of the market that was invaluable, as well as endless patience and a keen sense of strategy. In addition, I was pleased to learn that he had personally lived in a number of towns that we were interested in including Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, and, therefore, brought an insider’s viewpoint to our process. Early on, my husband and I agreed that we had never met a more impressive realtor and saw no reason to look elsewhere. We trusted him with the most important search of our lives: to find a safe and comfortable home to raise our new daughter and we will be forever indebted to him. Without hesitation,
I recommend Nick Granoski as a real estate professional who can successfully help you navigate the challenging Silicon Valley market.
Lynne Coonan, Atherton
We worked with Nick to sell my mother-in-law’s home—it sold in 5 days with 11 offers. I believe Nick’s professionalism, solid advice and marketing expertise enabled us to sell for the maximum amount imaginable. My mother-in-law’s retirement is now secure…
John Strohmaier, Palo Alto
Nick was able to provide us with every advantage during a multiple offer situation when buying our home. In this competitive market, we would not work with anyone else…
Jennifer Donnelly and Janet Wong, Palo Alto
Nick promised us a lot when we interviewed him to list our house—and he more then delivered. He consistently did what he said he was going to do, in the timeframes he said he would. Nick has my highest recommendation.
Katherine Armstrong, Palo Alto
We met with other agents who agreed to sell our home the way we thought it should be sold. Nick educated us regarding the marketing of our home in ways we hadn’t thought of. There were times we fought him every step of the way out of fear we would have to put in extra time or money. He listened to us, made every step simple and in the end we’re glad we followed his advice…the sale of our home went extremely smooth, and we made much more money then we had even anticipated. We recommend Nick to anyone selling their home.
Jerry Fournier and Hal Hartman, Mountain View
“Nick was sincerely interested in doing the best job for us and listened closely to our needs. The marketing plan he created and executed was excellent–his attention to detail is second to none. He helped us sell our home quickly and for much more money then we had anticipated. We give Nick our highest recommendation.”
